ascension SP parry function (short version)

[ Edited ]
11 replies 236 views Edited Feb 23, 2013
Since I had one public and several pm saying tl;dr here is a short version of what really concerns me about sp in ascension.

If u level ur blades to level 2 in the prison of the damned demo you gain a parry move that is executed by pressing l1 + x... This is great online because of lag.. And it is even cool in SP BUT .. I am worried that if the old mechanism of just tapping block right as the enemy hits you is not ascension, yeah i will adapt but.... It won't feel much like all 5 other gow games that I have mastered the art of parrying in. I love the l1 + x as a powerful counterattack but please SSM ... Please tell me that we gain the ability to parry like in other gow games as well as this new technique.

How does everyone else feel about this?? I didn't get much feedback on my other post about this! Thnx all

Btw.. Everything else about the combat in ascension is 10x better than other gow games.. Just don't like this new parry thing for SP... Like I said.. It is awsome for MP.. Plz keep it the same as it has always been for Kratos though!!!

MP dictating SP yet again. Surprise, surprise. And the new parry is crap.

>will gain old parry back
Don't count on it. I don't expect to return petrification in this outing.

>10x better
You say that only because you don't know enough about the old games. I can help with them (and this entry).

GodMode, you can't help anybody do anything different that they cannot do for themselves.......give it uop dude. Just because you go line by line and note stupid things that nobody cares about does not make you a vet among vets. All of your >lines are as old as you are.

>GodMode
Jackie boy, pls. "GMG" suffices. No need to honor me any further than that.

>anybody
>anything
>nobody
You're far too careless with your use of absolutes, lad. It only takes the one to bring it all down. Or didn't you know it?

>not using the ellipsis properly
Don't let your anger blind you, boy. Show respect where it is due.

>can't
I have a "can do" attitude, Negative Nancy.

>uop
What?

NOTE: You forgot the comma.

>vet among vets
But it's true. It's like this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nXgTPAr5_Lw

>old as I am
Don't you go flattering me now, sport. No flirting with teacher. That's forbidden love.

>doesn't know what to call the approach
How green you seem.

You should be more grateful that one of my ability is willing to grace you with his presence at all. Most vets are not so generous as I. Many wouldn't respond to you at all, much less offer aid as I do. I'm a real giver, you see.

Don't worry Jakob, he does the same annoying thing on GameFAQS, just best to ignore him.

>don't worry
The way you phrase it, there is cause for concern. Not very good at reassurances, I see.

>same annoying thing
That would be? Elaborate, why don't you? By all means, the stage is yours, Pumpkin.

>best to ignore
Who among you lot has the discipline to do this (ill-advised though it may be)? It is why I have so much to teach you boys. Much maturing left to be done. I don't just teach GoW, you know.

I agree, it even looks weird for Kratos doing the MP parry. =/

 

Tapping L1 was nice.
