Hey all, Blade Symphony’s got a huge update for you this weekend.
First up, we’ve created an entirely new game mode based on your feedback. The game’s not just about duels anymore, now you can participate in a team-based game mode called Control Points. Check out this update video below.


The new control point game mode ships with 3 new maps specifically made for the game mode. They are terrace, a map that plays with vertigo; sequence, where chokepoints become important; and docks, an open map with both indoors and outdoors combat.

Control Point and Attachments update

You also now have the ability to directly influence how game balance is structured.

We’ve created a game balance github so you can make pull requests for game balance. The community has stepped up and already there are numerous changes pulled in based on community suggestion. See the full game balance changelog resulting from community discussion.

Control Point and Attachments update

Each character in the game now have separate attachments that you can install. These cosmetic attachments are integrated with Steam Workshop so players can create their own skins, armor, and anything you can imagine.
To date, players have created 589 pieces of content, including swords, masks, maps, and graphics modifications.

This weekend we’re throwing a huge party by celebrating the launch of this patch with a free weekend from October 16th to the 19th. On top of that, we’re throwing in a 75% discount for purchasing the game on Steam.

Between this, overgrowth, and chivalry, button mashing melee is quickly becoming a thing of the past. I hope Bethesda is watching.

It won't.

Consoles my friend. Advanced melee combat does not work well on consoles, plus, you have to think more than "Press A for awesome!"

No console user is looking for satisfying gameplay elements. Which is really sad, back in the days, PC & Console both offered challenging, but different experiences, hence it was not odd to have both.

These days though...Consoles...most of it is either CoD, or Recycled older generation games that haven't evolved.

That only applies to shooters. Melee combat and platforming has always been dominated by consoles. Always. Grabbed by the ghoulies/ that one Jet Li game are perfect examples of a non-button mashing cerebral hand to hand combat system. They've never been matched, on PCs or otherwise. You can't throw the little boxes under the train for every little thing dude.

I have found some very awesome games for modern consoles. Prototype is one, you may have heard of it. Dead Space, Mass Effect (Haven't played it though.) Dante's Inferno (Though I admit it is based off of a book.) Homefront was sadly "Just another Shooter" but the storyline was fairly interesting and the graphics were more or less stunning. All of these games I mentioned are also fairly hard, even on the easiest setting. (Other then Mass Effect which I haven't played yet so wouldn't know.)

hmm yes. But luckily there Elder Scroll games which thankfully you can up the difficulty on with the slider, or with mods. Yes modding is one of the saving graces of PC games in this generation.
