Wait, what did Oneida do? I remember the guy being one of the hardest working at promoting VF and then he vanished at some point?

Cheated on his girlfriend and attempted to solicit nudes from and actually sent nudes to a 16 year old.

I still get heated every time I see Dyne's name come up because that fucker ruined the Virtua Fighter discord server I was in by purely by being there due to his posse following him in and being just as insufferable.

I don't even know if there's a cleaner VF server because Oneida turned out to be a creepo too.

(please Sega port VF5FS to a newer console or PC)

Having met Dyne IRL, it's easy to see how he gets a posse. He was just the nicest guy to a nobody like me and was nothing but super helpful and humble, though you could definitely tell he was a little weird around the edges. He got into a lot of trouble with the Vampire Savior community over some transphobic comments, because as nice as he is, he also has some backwards views and doesn't shy away from an internet poo poo flinging contest. If not for those backwards views I'd be right there in his posses but, unfortunately, the WORST people have no such qualms and will brigade anyone who takes a shot and their friend who's good at pushing buttons.

dyne is still a mod on the fightcade discord afaik

Last page but yeah he is.
Guess it can't hurt to ask here too, I'm having a weird issue with Fightcade 1 that started randomly happening but won't go away, so maybe someone here has dealt with it and knows a fix. Whenever I open a game to set buttons, through the emulator itself or launching it in Fightcade, the game runs fine. When I try to connect to another player it slows to a crawl, with the framerate going to a seconds per frame level of slow and the sound stuttering to keep to match, like it's loading a state over and over. I've tried this with multiple games and multiple people (Zand was one, he might be able to describe it better), and it occurred every time, and the other player saw it too. I asked in the official discord what to do and Shine's response was that it was a frameskipping issue and that's just something that happens with Fightcade 1; all the fixes they had were for Fightcade 2. I'll go back and check if there were recommendations, but is this something I could potentially suss out and fix or am I just stuck not being able to use Fightcade?

if you go to the replies she posts the dm conversation. its honestly extremely funny because shes full on 'thank you for making a game with so much fanservice' and talking about how much she loves big anime titties and hes full on jaw hitting the floor wolf noises and says some extremely weird reply guy poo poo



its not the worst thing in the world and she was clearly somewhat engaging with him so its not like, entirely unprompted but he took a basic flirting convo to a weird place basically. he doesnt say anything full on harassment so im not sure a public callout was necessary but well, its the year 2020

With just how Mike Z has operated on Twitter what with basically almost seeking out people to try and get into internet fights with, combined with having heard some rumbling from other communities that yeah he is just kind of an obnoxious rear end to be around, yeah all the stuff about working with him sounds extremely believable. Really this all makes me wonder if Lab Zero could survive needing a new lead coder, what with all of the seemingly constant issues they have had anytime they try and do anything.

He isn't the lead coder on Indivisible, although he is the main game designer.

Is there a reasonable review of Battle for the Grid out there anywhere? I seriously have seen like 2 now that are like "it's a mediocre fighting game" then in the comments "I don't really play fighting games" lol

One Nation, Under God.

There are no reasonable reviews for fighting games.

Battle for the Grid in particular launched in a blatantly unfinished state, so any reviews that exist are probably just complaining about a lack of content, character balance, etc in ways that are no longer relevant.

Your best bet would be to watch Sajam learn the game on stream, where he does it in steps like playing the tutorial, messing around in training mode, fighting other people online, watching tournament footage, playing people again, etc

Besides being an abstract review, it's also a good lesson on how to learn a new game

Fighting game reviews, especially for niche fighting games, are always trash.

After having put a few hours into it now, I can say that the mechanics are honestly way better than you'd expect. The game is absolutely full of really high damage combos and extremely degenerate mixups. The damage is overall much, much higher than something like MVC2, minus that this game doesn't have many infinites and the ones that did show up have mostly been patched out.

I was never any good at MVC2, but playing this feels really similar in that the pressure generated by mixups and extremely powerful assists generally leads into high damage combos that either reset into pressure or dump into high damage with meter. It's not uncommon for the top tier characters to be able to deal 60+% damage from a solid hit in any screen position. In fact, probably the big difference between something like MVC2 and this is that most of the cast in BFTG is capable of two touching at minimum, and some can actually TOD off of a throw even.

What makes the game mechanically interesting is that there aren't any neutral tags. You tag by calling an assist, and then you can swap to that assist at ANY time while they're on screen. That means you can actually legit setup unblockables where your active character is hitting high, swap to the incoming character and hit low. Or create really wild left right mixups by swapping early or late and varying your timing. There's not any cross up protection either afaik, so it is really, really hard to block some setups. But that's part of the fun!


As someone who's just not really into power rangers though, I'll admit that I find the cast kind of boring. The characters are really fun to play, and have pretty varied skillsets in general, but man it's just not much to look at. It reminds me of that really awkward combofiend interview where he described characters as functions and that people wouldn't care as long as there was a character that had a similar function. Honestly, it's kinda true for me in this case weirdly enough.

I'm still intensely bad though so take my opinions with a grain of salt. It's super fun, and one(?) of the yellow rangers dual wields cutlasses and has flintlock pistols and a whip so that owns


Edit: Just look how sick this combo is, works anywhere on screen as well

Yeah, if you don't like longer combos then it's definitely not the game for you. All the combos in the game are loop based, and so the best characters tend to have some pretty long combos into finishers

Oh I forgot the biggest difference between BFTG and other tag games, no air dashes in BFTG. Lots of characters have advancing normals that let you position and confirm however

Sounds a lot like DBFZ but with neutral. Can you drag out your opponents team to kill their blue life like in DBFZ?

With combos that big that would be pretty, uh... no thanks
