Just saw a combo video for Haku in CS: Extend. I like how ArcSys made improvements on him. He's so much better compared to his CS2 variant. Also, it seems 4c can now be charged.

I wonder if CS: Extend for the PS3 will be released here on the state side... it'd be nice for sure =__=

Extend will be released in North America on Valentines Day.

European release is apparently also in February. I say apparently because it could change release date quite easily from previous experience.

Oh, really? That's great news indeed.

I guess I should spend some time practicing since I haven't touched the game for almost 8 months. It's a good way to keep myself in check until Extend comes out. XD

Practicing combo's is mostly pointless beacause most characters have new ones because the properties of most normals and some specials have changed.

Rachel doesn't change that much, though. Her j2C still works, and it need a lot of time to practice so not everyone will be a waste.
Some of Platinum's combo, too.

I don't know about the others since that's the only 2 characters I used.

Rachel's damage has changed alot (higher proration, meaning shorter combos) and especially her 2c counterhit starter combo's are nerfed.

Platinum is one of the characters that has changed the most, due to her weapons having an added effect and giving you more combo potential from them.

One of the least changed characters are probably Ragna and Mu, the rest have bigger changes (especially Jin and Makoto) that you need to adjust when playing extend compared to cs2.

But her combo is still the same, mostly cut short due the proration change, and I'm glad that stupid 2C combo is toned down. It was stupidly easy and too strong. Her j2C is still the same, no change. Her pressure got stronger, but mostly still doable in BBCS2.

Platinum most important feature is 22C still available, and that needs a lot of practice, so I won't write off practicing that in BBCS2 while waiting for Extend. Other things are mostly buff, so it's even easier to modify your previous combos with some items for the new ones.

In short, not everything you practice in BBCS2 will go useless. The change isn't as drastic as BBCT to BBCS (lolz Rachel). Half of the things you learn in BBCS2 is still the same. It's not pointless to keep practicing with BBCS2. All you need to do is to look for the changelog and take note of what you can and what you can't do in Extend.

Most of the combos that they have in cs2 are no longer the most optimal combos . If you don't know rachel's and platinum combos from extend, you will drop them them mid way due to proration or lose your oki by not finishing the actual combo. In both cases it's bad as it leaves you more open. Also we don't know who Silvance mains, if he mained Jin, Makoto or Tager then i would say it's pointless to practice their combos with CS2 for extend. As those 3 have almost the CT to CS1 treatment that Rachel had, by having very different combos.

edit: i already imported extend and luckly for me Mu's combo's are mostly the same

What are the major differences in CS Extend compared to CS/CS 2 ? Just rebalancing etc. ? Or new story too ?

New story paths for Relius, Makoto, Platinum, Mu-12, Valkenhayn. Their respective arcades endings too.
New online modes ( 3 vs 3/2 vs 2)
New modes (Abyss mode and new challenges)
All previous DLC included, except for voices
Rebalancing too of course.

Technically the abyss mode and the arcade stories of Makoto, platinum, mu-12 and valkenheyn were available on the cs2 port on the psp and the 3ds.

Actually no, it's all DLC included, inclusive of the voices. The only system voice DLC (AKA announcer DLC) that aren't included are the new system voice DLC (of which there are 7, being released on a weekly basis though they've taken a break for New Years).

Unlimited Characters, the DLC System Voices from the CS1/2 and the DLC colours from CS1/2 are all purchasable in game in the Gallery Mode through the in-game "Platinum Dollars" currency system, though they're also locked based on the in-game leveling system which requires you to earn XP from playing.

Also, you forgot to mention the "Calamity Trigger Reconstruction Arc", a condensed summary of the canon events from Calamity Trigger with numerous added scenes and a fully animated version of the Calamity Trigger opening scene done by Production I.G. Oh, and also that Legion Mode has been completely removed from the game.

It includes the entire story mode from CS1, plus the EX stories from the PSP/3DS version, plus new ones for Makoto, Valkenhayn, Platinum and Relius, and plus a newer fresher Calamity Trigger story condensed into a single but very long (like 4-5 hours long) story arc.

1. No. But it does have English voices for battles only.
2. Yes. Aksys are not like Atlus USA who refuse to put in Japanese voices into English versions of the game.

I'm so mad about this.
Spending money over DLC is fine.
But learning they're making another game which include them + new content is just frustrating.

My main is Haku. When I said practice, I was referring to the timing of his falling j.2c in a middle of a combo, and hopping Tsubaki during Mugen since I probably can't pull them off anymore.

For those who have Extend, how is Noel so far? She's my sub so I was wondering if she had any major changes. :3

From what I heard, she's tier C now, but that's not necessary bad. She's on the same range as Platinum.

It's the same as paying more to get thing earlier.....

I know it's frustrating, because I'm one, but it's reality, and it has always been. You spend more to get thing early, and after a while, other people will be able to get the same thing, just cheaper.

C tier is the worst tier. Tsubaki and Makoto are there.
Noel is B- at least.

And you guys are mad for no reason about the DLC... They're going to put new stuff in the future.
And what about the people who will buy CSEX for the first time? They would have to spend loads of money to get all characters, colors and voices.
