    The real question is though
    why put a Russian character in the game on July 4th
    :colbert:
     
  2. Uhh.... huh.... what? I guess something is better than nothing, but WTF?

    I feel like there has to be more to this 1.3 GB patch than 1 character. Anyone care to do some digging to find new stuff?

    + - That was wholly unexpected. This cannot be the only character. It seems completely unrelated to the polling. It's a PC-exclusive title, so perhaps it's simply another PC-exclusive character.

    The irony of this character being released on the 4th of July of all days plus the karma of consoles getting the short end of the stick for once amuses me greatly. Well played, Sumo.

    A Wartime tank and character?

    Hey Sega and Sumo, Are you just flat out refusing to acknowledged that Valkyria Chronicles exists any-more? Where is my Transforming Edelweiss Tank piloted by Alicia or Welkin?

    It's pretty obvious that they did this to cross-promote the game with Company of Heroes 2, which was just released.

    I'm doing some rooting around in the GameData.M00 file in notepad to see if I can find anything interesting involving characters, and there are 2 entries that I'm not sure of. I'm pretty sure that "winter" is who we have now, but there's also one called summer and another called genwin. What's interesting about genwin is that every entry for genwin is preceded by "AN_DLC," but I have no idea what genwin could stand for.

    Winter, summer, and genwin all have the same calls for what appear to be announcer clips as every other character in the game which makes me think that those are character entries.

    EDIT: Oh wait... genwin is who we have now. So what's Winter and Summer?

    I think the new character is pretty good. He was really unexpected, I agree, but he's still fun to use, and he's got some pretty good stats too. Now we just have to wait for the next DLC (if it ever happens).

    "winter" is just a clone entry of General Winter. I tested by replacing MeeMee with it. Summer's assets are probably not there at all (it loads Dr Eggman's stuff instead), but it's probably just the counterpart to Winter. :v:

    Y'know that Community Day would be great if it were to happen during this free weekend, maybe? Just saiyan.
     
  14. Yeah, a community day period would be great! I'm sure many people now have the PC version, heck I just bought my copy today!

    I will be glad to join in on the PC and maybe even the 360 version.

    Some footage on a fitting track for those who can't play on PC, all star included. This is so delightfully goofy for the 4th.

    Also I can't ever seem to get decent looking videos at lower res. You have to go HD to figure out what's going on.

    Something about a Russian CoH rep racing a Russian Heavy amuses me.

    I haven't seen sales figures, but as far as I know, while the game was well received, it hit the bargain bins pretty quickly. I wouldn't be surprised if no new decent characters or tracks were put in.

    No auto-playing video, Gene?
