I may just be talking out of my rear end here but didn't Evo originate primarily as a 2D major way back in the day?

If so I can understand a bias towards a 2D heavy lineup.

It's strictly the console release date of TTT2 that is leaving tekken out of EVO this year.

Tekken 6 will be a completely dead (and nearly 6 year old) game at that point.

If they add Rose I'll forgive them for anything. The classiest lady in Street Fighter. Also, I'm mentioning her because apparently M.Bison is in the game and she'd make sense as a rival.

That's not actually how sexism works. Movies where there's lots of big-breasted women fawning over strong men aren't exactly "less pervy" than ones with just the big-breasted women.

Also, I'd like to say that panty-shots are a tradition in fighting games that date all the way back to the original SFII, with Chun-Li. Taking them out of the genre would be like taking 2-in-1s or throws out of it.

Also, I'd like to say that a joke. Because I don't feel safe enough to assume you'll interpret it as such. Also, drop that topic.

Yeah, 10-hit combos have definitely been in since Tekken 1.

I copy pasted some idiot's comment, but 10-hits are irrelevant to real Tekken gameplay. Juggles have definitely gotten longer over the years, though.

It's a cool trick that does solid damage for a juggle. I don't see anything broken or in need of fixing.

So for some reason a localization company I've never heard of called "7Sixty" is localizing the 360 fighter Phantom Breaker. I think I played the demo from Japan's XBL for like 5 minutes and it didn't seem all that special but hey there you go.
The publisher is just a subsidiary of Southpeak; they also happen to published Stronghold 3 late last year. Now there's diversity for you.

So what's the early buzz on SC5? My favorite fighter is BlazBlue, but I'm on the fence over paying for what seems like $40 just to have the latest disc and thus the online community.

Troffen
Aug 17, 2010



Yeah I'm in the same boat. I like BB fine but I don't really want to pay $40 for a single new character and new story mode junk. I guess if you never shelled out for the DLC characters in CS it might look like a better deal.

I wish Arc would get around to making BB3 at some point, because there's only so much they can do with BBCS itself with expansions and DLC. It doesn't look too good for the future though, hearing the series producer going "I'd like to, if possible, make one" doesn't sound too encouraging.

Antillese

^^^^
I'd chalk that up to poor translation in combination with passive language business Japanese. That's just the vibe I'm getting from reading it overall.

I never did shell out for BB DLC. I'm thinking I'll just wait until the end of the year and get a used copy.

I might get SC though. I used to have a lot of fun with 2, and I bought 3 but all the bugs really did make it pretty wonky. I'm going to wait and see what the final reviews and opinions are though.

They got the Guilty Gear license back so they should make a new GG and forget BB ever happened.

I believe either Mori or Ishiwatari said in an interview from a while back that they intend to come back to Guilty Gear, but not until they "finish" the BB series, whatever or whenever that means.

I've always wondered about this sentiment. Given that GG and BB share a very similar skeleton on a very basic level (bursts, super meter, faultless guard, roman cancel, super anime art style, etc), why is there such confidence that a new GG wouldn't have the same problems as BB?

Sorry if this is an obvious question, but I'm one of the assholes who started playing fighting games with HDR, so I really don't have a lot of good hands on time with GG.

Troffen
Aug 17, 2010



Yeah, I've heard that most of the original GG team isn't with Arc anymore anyways. If/when they get around to making a new one, I can help but think it'll just be BB with GG's characters.

The BB team is the GG team, except with Mori at the lead instead of Daisuke.

Daisuke did all of the music and character portraits for the CS series, and he did the portraits for Accent Core IIRC. He was also the lead designer for every game except Slash.

I dunno if Arc could be trusted with GG3 after Daisuke's little baby GG2. I keep picturing maybe a slow 2D fighter with 3D graphics and a mostly new cast of characters (or worse yet, GG2 characters)

I guess people are hopeful that they'd try to stick with the overall gameplay feel and mechanics of GG if they were trying to do another GG game. I don't really think that would be the case though.

There's no way they could do a new, full on GG anyway, they'd have to have like 1/2 the cast, and nobody wants that.

Edit: Yeah a mostly new cast ala 3rd Strike or MotW would be way more likely, probably with mostly GG2 characters and all that.

There are more useful tech traps and float traps for people to find. Seriously, this isn't anything new in Tekken. I'm expecting more sandwiches and Bruce float traps.
