Super stoked for rollback +R. I'm going to wind up playing nothing but 2k2 and AC in 2021 lol, thanks FG devs for finally paying attention to netcode

It's insane that they don't already have a title screen to show off where the title is changed to Guilty Gear XX Accent Core Plus Rollback

I see you.


This is definitely a time to give +R a try if you haven't before or another chance if you tried it and didn't bother because of the rightfully bad netcode before. I hope this can lead to a nice set of games for at least the end of the year.

Also, I can make people really hate Faust in this version if they don't already from other versions and Xrd.~

I would argue that the damage in SF5 is pretty low. it's true that there are specific things (medium punch into b&b, 1-2 CC's per character, anything into vtrigger cancel) that can do lots of damage. but basic stuff like pokes and anti airs only do like a 10th of the lifebar because you just hit them once and don't get a cool combo after it

it is brutally trivial to get meter in sfv

This would matter a lot of SF5 were a game of slowly poking at the opponent from a safe range, or fishing for jumps so you can AA into a combo, but it's really not. The specific things that do lots of damage make up 90% of the game, which is why the game as a whole has high damage IMO.

I've been really digging KoF 2k2. I had a nice long set with someone who was insanely good and could trounce me with any team, but it was still fun to learn my chars. I've never really played KoF before but I like the pace of it. I'm working with a team of Andy, Robert, and Mature right now. I have no idea what makes a good team but those 3 felt fun in practice mode and didn't seem like terribly complicated chars. It's overwhelming to learn 3 chars at once but it keeps things really fresh. Every now and then the person I was playing against would pick one of my 3 and it was cool to see how they're "supposed" to be played.

Our ping was like 150 but it felt perfect! I couldn't tell I was playing online. I really appreciate KoF2k2's efficiency for getting online. I can see exactly how many players are online and waiting, then I hit one button and I'm matched with someone. EZPZ. I think having a small pool of players is not a problem as long as it's easy to get into a match with one of them.

I really love Xrd but the online play is so annoying, even if you don't consider netcode. I have a baby so I can get interrupted at any minute, so it's not convenient for me to find someone on discord to set up matches with. Then if you go into the lobbies, you have to either take turns at a cab (blegh) or sit at an empty cab and pray that someone else comes in to play. This is partly why I'm looking forward to the rollback update to AC+R - that game has simple and efficient matchmaking like KoF2k2. I play Zato in Xrd but am thinking of trying someone new in AC+R - Anji looks pretty cool.

Iím a wifi warrior so Iíve been purged from a bunch of rooms but Iím still getting games at least. Hambrabi rules and Iíve been messing around a bunch with it. I play ZZ normal, Hyaku Shiki, Legend, Providence, Delta Plus, Barbatos normal, Qant, 00 Raiser, FAZZ. I mess around with a bunch of other suits but I feel most comfortable with all of those. PSN is RevolverChicken7

Gun EZ is a pretty decent suit. I donít like most 1.5ks but itís got a decent toolbox and fits into most teams.

I play a lot of Barbatos Lupus and Arche. Generally any melee suit with funky movement options is my speed.

I also really like the GN-X even though its kind of a joke character.

FAZZ is a huge fucker until youíre used to fighting it as it can cheese the poo poo out of you with gerobis and super armor. Itís extremely slow and vulnerable at medium range if the armor is on and while itís decently mobile itís pretty bad for a 3k with armor off. It can still always steal games though just by how much damage it can do if you stop looking at it.

Why does the framerate of Granblue seem to nosedive randomly, like when it introduces Yuel its either the worst frame drop I've ever seen, a terrible animation, or an aesthetic choice that just does it.

That doesn't happen in actual gameplay whatsoever so it's probably either slowed down for the trailer or her animations aren't complete.

To preserve the 2d-ness of the xrd-style graphics characters have to animate at a lower framerate. That one's a classic by now. However, it's a little deeper: your character animates (ie changes poses) at a lower framerate but moves (ie changes on-screen position) at 60fps still. That's standard for sprites. Like, when you jump in SF2, Ryu's full jump has 5 frames in its animation but still describes a perfect 60fps parabola. This works because to your brain it's just "cels" sliding on top of each other.

But if your camera moves cinematically instead of just sliding on a plane it falls apart because the character isn't moving like a sprite in those, it's switching poses for everything, so you get mad stroboscopes effects with the impression the character's going back and forth on the screen. The first approach they attempted is the one you see in Xrd, DBFZ and Granblue: the camera moves at the framerate at which the cinematic models change pose. It's jarring and looks like framedrops, but is in truth nowhere as bad as the stroboscope. The new, better approach seen in Strive (but probably seen by the world at large in Spiderverse) is to really go the full length treating cinematic characters as cels laid over a 3D background. That means the background has a 60fps camera while the models have their own camera which only changes position when they need it to, at their own rate. So when Sol and Ky grab their swords in the first Strive trailer, the backgorund's moving at 60fps (well, 30 on youtube) while the characters are moving at 15fps. If you look at it in slow motion you can see their feet are not moving along with the ground and all but it's all fine.

That new approach can look stroboscopic too if the camera's moving around too much and of course it's moving around too much in Strive, to show off the cool effect, but eh, they'll probably gain some restraint with experience.

Cags is a trans alchemist whose goal in life is to make magic hrt. Shes also a bit evil.

Granblue is as dead as all other fighting games without rollback rn. Theres two season passes so yes if you count the base game.
