So! I’ve been looking forward to Dissidia on console for an eternity, and now that I have my beta code for NT I’ll have my first chance at it tomorrow night! Other than drooling over the visuals, I’ve stayed more or less spoiler-pure on any details of the game. I know the fight system is supposed to be different than the original and 012, but I figure I’ll go into it like new and see how I like it.
Unless there’s either plot to unlock characters, or limited character selection due to it being a beta, I’ll be starting out with my girl Terra. I’ve always loved her anyway, but she was nice and light in the other games and I’ve always preferred characters that move around well. Slow, bulky, but higher-health characters might can give me a huge smack-down if they catch me, but it’s so much more fun flitting around instead of brute forcing something. Well, that’s not entirely true I guess… In most games I tend to lean towards being a glass cannon; I rush the enemy as fast as I can, and hope to take them down before they hit me. I can dodge if I need to, but it’s all about the DPS, not defense or attack.
…Of course, all of this assumes that the connections on this test are better than the ones for FFXV: Comrades. The two are different teams, different servers, etc, so with any luck this test will be more prepared than that one was, but it’s always a possibility to watch out for.
Anyway, add me on PSN (BrennaCeDria) if you wanna play this weekend, or join me on Twitch if you just wanna watch the game. I’ll post when I’m actually getting on so anyone interested can join in!
