I didn't know where else to post this since I don't have photo proof and youtube is fucking useless but I've seen some shit in Final Fight 3 that may be merely misconception now. I recently purchased Final Fight 3 on the 3DS eShop and I've been playing that like crazy these days. I've beaten nearly every single difficulty with nearly every single character(asides from Lucia... her Super is annoying as hell to attempt to pull off). i typically play with Auto 2P mode which means that I have a CPU partner helping me until they get killed by Stray in Stage 5. Now most sources online state that Auto 2P is fucking dumb and they won't use continues, pickup items or even use the Super meter.
This is mostly true except 2 things; I've seen the Auto 2P pick up items on occasion(even one time where they picked up the goddamn pipe and started wailing on goons!) and more surprisingly just 2 days ago I saw Guy use his Super on an enemy! I was shook as all hell when I saw this but it fucking happened! The CPU Guy pummeled away at one of the lower thugs and sent them flying with a ki blast palm strike! Any other time after this they simply did nothing when grabbing an enemy with a full Super meter. It only happened this one time so far but it means that the Auto 2P isn't as useless as others make it out to be. Also to note was I as playing on Expert mode with the partner strength at Strong. I dunno if that had anything to do with the Guy partner using his Super but who knows. Maybe there will be a slim chance that the Auto 2P will even use a continue after losing all lives. Just thought I would impart that to anyone interested. More Penny goodness on the way!
