sat down with the game for a couple hours last night and today, few questions for ya erops

how do I do those triple hyper combos (where all team mates run out and fire off)
how do I do delays
how do i do cancels
how do I do an aerial counter (stopping enemy from swapping in another member and air juggling)
Is there a quick recover like in blazblue


other than that I'm getting the hang of a few characters

The triple hypers I just hold R1/L1 (RB/LB), the longer I hold, the more allies that use their special. AFAIK the special they use is determined by the assist. (Though unless you're at like, an arcade and want to do something flashy, you should never do these since they suck in tandem more often than not).

Now, if you mean having multiple team mates hyper in the same go (ie, Hulk does Gamma Tsunami, then Sentinal switches in and does Overload, then Akuma switches in for kamehameha) you just have to input the hyper you want and do it while they're ending (or starting) their hyper.

Example, as Hulk does Gamma Tsunami, you can tag in Sentinel RIGHT as Hulk grabs the ground, thus canceling Hulks special and starting Sents (which special depends on which input you used). Or, you can have Hulk go through with Gamma Tsunami and as he does his little ending animation, you can hyper input and tag in a Sent hyper that way.

I'm not quite sure what you mean by 'how' you do delays, they're a timing thing in this game. IDK, practice I suppose will teach you when you need to delay a hit to get the OTG or combo.

Cancels are done by doing another move as you're in the process of using a move. The Sentinel Heavy is a move that is a great example on how to cancel. As far as I am aware, you can only cancel if you hit/get blocked, if you miss, you cannot cancel into another move. Again, only certain characters/moves do this so it's up to you to learn which ones you can cancel out of.
(Go to practice and do Heavy+downHeavy repeatedly with Sent, then have them jump and try to get the one two to learn get an idea of how canceling works) (Miss a few times with the regular Heavy then try to follow up with a downHeavy and see how much slower it goes since it didn't cancel)

Aerial counters are tricky in that you can never truly time it and it's more just lucky timing and preparedness. Hold down and tap X(A) like a mad man and hope that you hit X on the exact moment the screen freezes suddenly. It's a pure gamble but if you are being air combo'd it is good to hold Down and tap X always, just in case they do decide to tag in combo (increasing your odds of stopping it greatly if you're already doing it, the odds of getting the right moment are better since you dont need a real reaction time).

No quick recover that I am aware of.

No, no, he did. In the everything else section, at least. Officially, this makes him king.

Do not buy or pirate Anno 2027 unless Ubisoft removes their terrible DRM. You're doing a disservice to your fellow gamers if you buy and support things such as that.

And if you pirate it, of course, you're just stabbing yourself in the back. Shooting yourself in the foot. DRMing yourself.
One of those three clauses is literate.

Yes. Don't pirate it either.

That only gives them justification.

Good to know. I only recently found it and thought it looked cool.

Playing Stronghold Crusader and Freelancer (found the CDs in a couple deactivated computers).

Still playing Eve Online, the economy is going batsh** over the upcoming changes. It pays to mine again.
