I actually like the CGI dog but what the holy fuck is wrong with that thing that shows up before the licker
Also, Neal ! I didn't know he was in this.
Goatee guy is Leon then is that it ?

The big ugly CGI Monster has Eyes on it's shoulders so it is probrably Wiliam Birkin in one of his later Mutations.

I find it kind of strange that they apparently mix the plots of Resident 1 & 2 together with characters of the Second game visiting locations of the first game etc.
Saw it. It kind of feels like a low budget fan-made B movie, but it holds up.

Attention : the new special effect on the special cards for the GG units works even on the second special slot. Put both a crit special card and an atk special card and you get both bonuses.
I wouldn't mind if they expanded on that, but Netmarble doesn't seem to care about releasing new specials for old characters. I wish Lady Geese got Asura Shippuuken as a new 3PG card already, not to mention other supers like Silent Flash, Hien Senpuu Juudan kyaku '97, Vulcan Punch... They started teasing that with the first 3PG 6* cards for the likes of Andy, Mature, Chris, but then they just dropped it forever to just focus on new characters (because they're obviously not going to release FES / Signature versions of those guys anytime soon).

I feel like they gave up the lying / misleading silhouettes a while ago (they probably thought they were being cute but got some backlash), now they're just messing with us about the team formations ever since they confirmed that the roster would be slashed.
I'm not even keeping up with how agonizingly slow the reveals are. Are we holding the "one reveal every two weeks" rhythm or has it gotten worse ? Will we have the full roster before Christmas / 2022 ? Stay tuned ! (edit - still two weeks, so definitely not for this year)

So the Deimos heal nerf goes up to 85%, and there are often 2 spiders per wave, which is a huge fucking pain, it's so aggressive all of a sudden. Are we just expected to have 150 awakened units to use 3 per level until the end ?
It's crazy how the heal supports (and that one single heal leader skill) finally jumped up high in the meta, Netmarble saw that and said "now hold on a second" and kicked them right back to the deep end of the meta where they belong. And that's immediately after splitting the DoA units between "gain 15% power" and "heal 12%". What the hell.

So they're really going to make it as confusing as they possibly can until the very end on the team configurations then. Either the K' team or the final mystery team.

JFC Netmarble really went ahead and cut in half the number of summon tokens in the 80 bucks package, from 8 to 4 for both characters and cards summons. Wow.

The official forum is getting mad that apparently Deimos nerfed the heal rate and made bosses strip your buffs, haven't tried it yet but didn't the spiders already strip your buffs ?
And also some are saying that Signature Chizuru was datamined. I'm glad she's getting work done.

oh, they changed the packages since the DoA banner ? I didn't notice.

Has anyone without PSPlus managed to play the demo ? The web store says you don't need PSPlus but the main menu only sends me to the subscription page and says it failed to initialize when I don't buy it. I thought the offline training would be available (the store even says you don't need a subscription even for the online test).

Beta is available to download.
Uh ? The october trailer said it would be this week-end, and I don't see it on the PS store + the Sony web store keeps saying "something went wrong, try again later" when I try to "add it to my library". Are you DLing it early ?

The Sony Brazil Twitter account posted a dubbed version that extends the "Lizard / Electro / Sandman jump at Spidey from the scaffolding" shot for half a second, long enough to visibly see Lizard get punched in the head by someone that was edited out of the trailer. Everybody knows who's hiding there.

Well I wouldn't say she's anywhere as aggressive or sick as Vice "I like the sound of bones breaking" or Mature who keeps describing how excited she is with all the moves where she draws blood, but it's pretty obvious with Whip that you can never really do a whip user without some playful teasing, even if you want to make a good person. What the fuck else can you write for a dialog when you have moves that strangle, hang, or drag on the ground a helpless target ? And the obvious inevitable hand-tying bondage of it all.

Yeah she does have that attack where she steps on the downed opponent's head repeatedly while laughing.

Also for 5k rubies (ew), you can now get an exclusive Moon Imprint Stone for either one of them.
The stones are for NESTS and Nationality Unknown characters, so they can go to others who deserve it more, like, say, BS OZero, Igniz, Leona, Goenitz or ORugal, if you want to send their CP through the roof. Hell, you can get two of each, so you can boost 4 of those.

I would take em with a grain of salt but I do understand why you or others would wish these true.
I'm not saying I wish they were true, I'm saying I'm not believing anyone on the Internet who claims to be the guy who photoshopped it, who claims to be the one who leaked it first, who claims to know it's real, who claims to know it's fake. Internet proof is not proof.

edit
Disney+ is revealing title cards for a whole bunch of shows for Disney Day : https://mobile.twitter.com/disneyplus
Marvel Zombies, Secret Invasion, Agatha House of Harkness, IronHeart, I am Groot, Spider-Man Freshman Year as a cartoon (Uncle Ben is gonna get killed again), Echo, Ms Marvel, She Hulk, What If s2, Moon Knight, and also X-Men '97 as a revival of the original cartoon ??

And it seems there's a quick trailer for Moon Knight but I'm not finding an official channel for it so I'm not sure it's legit ?

I just realized that the Deimos mode was reset to a new season (with event missions reset too). If the seasons are weekly like League and Infinite absolute war, then the rewards being on a first clear basis are a lot more relevant (even if there's still not reward right now). As long as the rewards aren't just dumb souls and exp capsules... Give us hammers and EQ2 stuff whatever new currency is coming up.
And yeah, the relevance of healing strikers is a lot higher now.

this John Campea leak has been proven fake and photoshopped.
Proven how ? I'm seeing that it's still being discussed and the guy in question is obviously denying everything but with flimsy excuses.

Once you complete the sub missions, the option to skip is available, but it still requires a ticket, and there's no way I'm wasting precious regular skip tickets at a 5-to-1 rate for something that will take several months to complete any way (raising the bonus stats to 150 then 270 for Phantom Igniz, and then probably much more before he's actually beatable). I did complete the missions for the Phantom Zero quest, so when the battle card can be obtained with a skip ticket, I'll make only one ticket for that, and that'll be it for the mode.

edit
cleared Deimos floor 50. some floors forbid you from using more than one BS or SS character in your team, which makes you go all out near the end. I hope you made some strong Mr. Karate, Goenitz, red Honoka and the likes, if not you're pretty screwed.
It looks like you actually replay previous stages within a season, I assume you won't get extra rewards, but that makes it really nice to test out some new character you're currently building up.

Oh shit I forgot that's the dumpster fire of an idea they chose for that. Yeah fuck that. If they ever decide to make the OZero quest available with a skip ticket, I'll craft the one ticket for that and then never touch the thing again. I'll get Phantom Igniz in two years. (and his memories two years after that)

As for Deimos : at least it's nice if you want to test out a few characters of a lower awakening level, before having to wait until the next season. This is something that's seriously lacking in most other modes that need you to get a high score to get the rewards.

So there's really no reward for advancing in the Deimos mode, beside the event stuff ? I see on the forum that "it's a beta so there's no first clear reward". Does that mean it'll be like the tower of trials where you'll get stuff only the first time you clear each level and then fucking nothing and you can't replay lower levels to farm ? So it's another mode that'll rely on "seasons" to decide when they want to give us anything, and so far it's painfully long to progress in this thing... It's not even like revival hell (that they straight up forgot because of the dumb level requirement beyond the cap) in which you can at least still get a tiny bit of slow drip of EXP capsules.
They really keep doing those stupid modes with the same model on purpose.

Finally, via their patch notes, certain mission requirements from Epic Quest will be adjusted when given the Epic Auto Skip Ticket.  This could mean that the mission where you need to use '01 O.Zero, who could barely dent a hit in Mission 2-10 and only possible if you have a $200 A5 FES+ unit, will be achieved just by having him on your team and toss a ticket after if you cleared it with other units.  Said reason to use '01 O.Zero is just to get his 3PG Card.
Is there even any way to get more of the epic quest auto clear tickets ? Because the stash that they gave that one time is long gone for me. I forgot I actually crafted some tickets for that at the beginning. They didn't give shit.

New charge move for Yuri and King. Hold the button to charge the move until it becomes a stronger version (Koohken into haoh shoukouken - no super flash), it's automatically the charged version in awakening.
