Relaxing AND Refreshing


Jawdins posted:

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

Of course! It's a little harder to combo into snapbacks then it is in DBFZ since you don't have vanishes to setup wall bounces, but if you snap them out they lose their blue health so uh.. yeah don't get hit basically. I would presume that every top tier character is able to do it by themselves, but I'm certainly not an expert here. You are able to pushblock however, unlike dbfz, so the pressure strings are a lot shorter and the game resets to neutral way more often. The incoming mixups seem like they can get pretty brutal, but there's no guard break mechanic so generally you'll get to touch the ground.

One important thing though is that you can't get multi-snapped or something like MVC2, so there's no free character kills if you get a happy birthday situation or something which is nice. Though, with the damage as high as I mentioned earlier getting your point and assist caught in a combo is pretty brutal


Edit: Oh one last edit, one of the reasons I decided to pick it up is just to support the publisher doing a few things very right. It's got really good rollback netcode and it's, to my knowledge at least, the only game that has full cross play on every system that it's on, including the switch. It also has persistent events and seasons that run, and I think I heard that you can actually resume your progress from a different console even? Just in general they did a great job getting the online stuff right and that's worth $10 or $20 on steam sale to support.

wish they would have called for mikez to resign from lab zero. even if he's not actually making any money from a sale of a copy of skullgirls (due to the konami/autumn games lawsuit), he's still indirectly benefiting from its popularity.

I CAN NOT believe the guy who made a public showing of how they made skullgirls less pervy (but then left in this and a ton of other hentai poo poo in the game)

could turn out to actually be kind of an rear end in a top hat that publicly says one thing but believes another. no way. not mike Z, the guy who made a funny video where he spoke in a stereotype accent 12 years ago.

Can't say I'm too surprised he has an interest in Tekken. Since he used to be a Street Fighter x Tekken player.

On the other hand encouraging victims to speak up and defend each other with numbers will only make a stronger community with less manipulative freaks in the long run, so please keep cleaning house while no one can compete and distract ppl from the actual root issues.

I saw random tournament footage of them together in the background and... man, without any prior knowledge of what was really going on it looked like she was treating him like how a mother would treat a literal son, and that really hosed me up now knowing the true context behind this awful, awful situation

People need to get this story out to the major games press. The head of EVO being a child predator is a massive thing. I don't want EVO to get cancelled but MrWizard sure as poo poo needs to go.

and on a personal level him being a loving pedo sure explains some of the people hes covered for
