Why did Ibuki change from hard-working ninja to questing for dick.

IIRC Ibuki was always like this but they just didn't translate every single win quote and exchange into English until more recently, making several of the characters seem like generic hardworking person (Ryu especially).

But female Street Fighter characters on a quest for dick is nothing new to the series. Finally finished my ten year quest to avenge my father's death via entering a fighting tournament with guys that shoot fireballs and can fly and stuff? Time to set sail for dick before I even finish paying my respects at my dad's grave.



It wasn't til Super that the game gave the option to continue being a cop instead of immediately embarking on a quest for dick. :P

It would be amazing if they're loving us and the silhouettes are Miu, Jun and Reiji like when they kept saying a character known for counters from KoF '96 would be returning in '99 making people excited for Geese Howard except it ended up being Kasumi Todoh. I know they're not and it's clearly Yamazaki, Vanessa and Whip and that's gonna be awesome but still. :P

Yamazaki and probably Blue Mary. The person standing tall looks like they're wearing a jacket with a furred collar like one of Mary's previous attires:



Some people are saying it's Rock Howard but yeah it's totally Blue Mary. Blue Mary+Vanessa+Yamazaki fits as an Agent team. I'm curious how they'll do four characters though, like one new team with an ending and stuff? Or just four individual ones with no extra intro/whatever stuff going on?

When they put out "this is absolutely not inspired or guided by MCU" that was also tremendous bullshit. I refuse to believe white-man with shades version of Hawkeye got in over someone like Doctor Octopus due to anything other than "BUT, THE MOVIES"

The best part of that interview wasn't just saying that, but the Jedi mind trick to steer the conversation away from it having no X-Men characters. "These aren't CHARACTERS that people are looking for Magneto and Wolverine aren't popular people don't REALLY like those characters they like the uh MOVES THOSE CHARACTERS HAVE CHECK OUT HOW AWESOME CAPTAIN MARVEL IS SHE'S JUST LIKE MAGNETO YOU'RE GONNA LOVE HER IF YOU LIKE MAGNETO AND DR.

That gaming.moe interview was kind of heartbreaking, the guy who did the animation for Ragnagard was a super skilled sprite artist and was so hype to get a job working on a Neo Geo game and then his boss on a whim decided pre-rendered was the future and he lacked the confidence/seniority to resist that. But he did go into an extreme amount of detail about how the game works which was kind of cool.

BB music is less consistently good than GG but there's still some really good ones in there. I really like Hibiki's theme, however I am not a music person so I do not know if it is "objectively" good.

I agree, GGX heavy rock arrange (what they used on the Dreamcast and PS2 iterations) and XX are GOAT level good game soundtracks to me. Xrd is fine but kind of blah. BB does have a couple of really good tracks but the overall thing just sounds more generic to me.

There was a popular GD-ROM for Dreamcast that had CvS2, 3S and MvC2 all on it. I think it was called TDO2?

The best thing about doing this was that Capcom and SNK's and FIRE PRO WRESTLING's (and several other but not all Dreamcast games) had ADX files as their music tracks so it was relatively easy to customize their soundtracks.

MVCI looks like a mobile game

what was the name of that marvel mobile fighter that came out around the same time? it looked exactly like that

It was said that budget wise, the amount of $$$ and resources that went into Street Fighter V's DLC and DLC costumes is the same amount of $$$ and resources that went into the entire game of MvC Infinite. Absolutely stunning misfire of a game on multiple levels.

I remember all the Jedi Mind Trick caliber interview shenanigans trying to justify the roster as something that was amazing and not just that they weren't allowed to use X-Men or Fantastic Four anything and had to focus on MCU stuff. "I mean when it comes down to it, no one actually LIKES Dr. Doom you know?"

I was wondering this too and SNK says an arcade patch is coming to consoles next week that adds stick compatibility and the Million Arthur character, so clear that up before I slander the game too much.

I played a few matches online and literally the only thing that differentiates the characters to me right now is the range of their jumping heavy attack and their super move. Once I just stopped using special moves or any combos over like those initial few hits you can easily altogether I was winning consistently because the only thing that matters is landing as many super moves as possible and you can do that more often.

bad fighting games are a tradition for the genre and deserve to be celebrated and played

when people got together irl to play fighters instead of online, bad fighting games were commonly played for fun. I can't imagine anything that would suck the fun out of a game like snk heroines more than not playing it with your crew in person

I hate playing games online in general - this was the first time I played a game online since the week KoF XIV came out - but we played plenty in person yesterday and it wasn't much of an improvement.

I mean the game isn't zero fun or anything but we're never going to drop the same amount of fun-with-bad-games-amount-of-time on this like we would with the legendary bad fighting games of yore. But I do like how, contrary to my fears, they actually did remember who the characters are and their special moves have little cartoony effects based on their profiles in the King of Fighters games and stuff.

I don't mind that this game's mostly going to be the Samurai Shodown 1 crew and maybe some folks from 2. Honestly I kind of don't even care what the roster is because Samurai Shodown characters are where it's at. Even the ones from the post HNG64 3D games are rad as hell, just trapped in godawful games.

I hope the soundtrack and backgrounds are on point though. Samurai Shodown 6's roster is amazing but WOW was the presentation a joke. I don't know if I'd care when the roster is that big for any other fighting game but Samurai Shodown backgrounds and music in most of the games are second to none to it was a noticeable step down.

Sonya Blade is weird because before they went 3D, she generally had a good design. She got pants, she wore a top and generally her story wasn't centered around Johnny Cage making bad passes at her constantly and the player switching between beating up Johnny Cage to prove she's a strong woman and then playing as Johnny Cage to white knight her against Kano.

All of the female MK costumes got way worse as the series went on because in MK1 through Ultimate a human had to be able to both wear the outfit and actually perform the poses and some of the moves. MKX was a massive improvement on that across the board.

I think I was the one who made the Mai Shiranui effort post someone brought up, but yeah whenever I have a problem with a female character's outfit it's not because I think unrealistic/skimpy clothing = bad it's because the look doesn't match the rest of how the character rolls. That's why King of Fighters and Samurai Shodown are untouchable with regard to their character designs. There's quite a few characters from both that I hate, but every single one of them is on point.

the animations in the mortal kombat/dc games are terrible. superman looks like hes trying to get a shirt with twisted sleeves off when he punches


The best thing about the Injustice 2 animation is that it's still waaaaaaaay better than Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe. They just, like, mapped Scorpion's Deadly Alliance-era idle and pre/post-fight stance stuff to a Batman character model and it was like, what? But going by 3D MK games and Injustice 2 I guess it would make sense that combining MK and DC together would give you the worst animations ever.

Potsticker posted:

This is a really good point. And I think it applies not just to the female costumes, too. Maybe it's nostalgia goggles talking, but I do think the BMX armor robots look better than their later designs. It also made them pretty visually distinctive as compared to generic robots in any other media.


It's a great design for sure.

I don't think it is just nostalgia. I mean MK has its roots in Enter the Dragon, Big Trouble in Little China, and a billion Godfrey Ho movies, so the ultra low budget secret ninja society look is dead on perfect. But I liked that we got to see human Cyrax and Sektor and that their names as humans are still Cyrax and Sektor.

There's always Buriki One for the worst of all worlds - You use the joystick to block, but you tap the joystick up to block, and down to block low attacks, and you also use the joystick to attack and do special moves.

Had no idea about the Siegfried Dark Legacy "minigame," that owns. Yeah it'll probably almost never come up much like Shenron in DBZ but it's still really cool that the devs put stuff like that in the game, it shows a level of creativity and care in their product and in the offchance those things do appear in a close match, it's always loving cool.

It owns and reminds me of some of the awesome poo poo in the Fatal Fury games like Mai's super that you have to perform while taunting or how B. Jenet has that super move you can do as you just defend where she beats the opponent with her shoe.

I asked her about my gifts and Bloodborne. She said I should know that she does not want things with "spirits," or dark ritual stuff in her household. She's decided to take a religious position and wants to set her home up as a "christian home." She added that she hopes I keep this in mind when I buy gifts for any future kids down the road.


Depending on what version of Christianity she's going with her attitude towards Bloodborne makes sense since it's like the single most Catholic video game ever made.
