Online multiplayer call to arms Here's a list of all the folks who are interested in Uprising's online multiplayer mode. Post your friend code if you're interested and it'll get added here.
You can use the D pad to cycle through powers and press down to use them. Sure you still have to let go of the circle pad and time it but it's still easier I think, especially for powers that have you aiming a power up.
What I done for the powers, I changed the controls so the A button changes for the next power to the right, Y for the next power to the left and B uses the highlighted power. It's great if you want to be able to move while selecting powers.
I got invited to a game from a guy in my contact list. Little did I know it was a one on one, no bots. Apparently sniping is a thing in that game too. It was the most boring game ever. The dude was using a long range homing weapon with +4 confusion. It was oh so very cheap of him. I can not believe it. At one point, I was standing on one side of the level, just dodging his shots. It was really very boring. I'm never playing that guy again.
Fo those who wonder, yeah, I beat him... just once. Then I left.
@VofEscaflowne I did, but it was still plain boring & overpowered. He had weapons near 300, I had one at 220. I like how Light vs Dark makes the chances more even. Now that's good balancing. There is no real pride in being an overpowered a$$h*le.
