A lot of goons in this thread are down on it, but I'll still plug Last Blade 2 as a really good game. Once you get over the power vs speed mode hump (and really it's mostly just links vs chain combo mode), the game is fairly simple but still has a lot going on in it.

Why are there so many visuals novels that turn into fighting games? The two genres couldn't be more different and you would think that would echo with the player base of the genres.

People who play visual novels tend to have no taste in anything, so you can just churn the IP into any genre you want and they'll eat it up

ST is a game I recommend because 1. it's so simple it's very easy to see what you're doing wrong, 2. there's not many mechanics going on, so it focuses on the bare fundamentals that apply to every game, and 3. it's old as dirt so there's a god drat encyclopedia of information out there

If you're losing to gimmicks or brutal options selects (and since it's ST there's a lot of them), there's a way to deal with it and somebody's written about it.

I mean, I'm pretty drat bad at the game, but I'm always learning something.

What I'm wondering is why I see so many people playing Championship Edition on FightCade. I get the impression people hold Hyper Fighting in high regard, but what makes CE worth playing today?

CE is the dumb broken version of SF2. For all the stupid poo poo you hear about CE Bison, he's not even the best character in the game.

Joe Higashi and King are the muay thai staples of KoF. KoF13 had Hwa Jai but he's not coming back apparently.

Karate representation has the entire AoF team but most notably Ryo and Takuma. They both literally take on the title of "Mr. Karate" at separate points.

there are a lot of loving chracters i'm having a lot of trouble keeping this stuff straight

It's easier if you know the franchises that KoF borrows from: Fatal Fury, Art of Fighting, Ikari Warriors, Psycho Soldiers, and some buttfuck sports games that nobody remembers. That nets you like 90% of the roster pre-99, and then after that you have to start straight up memorizing the weird designs that SNK started farting out (though a giant cyborg Canadian with a laser cannon in his chest is pretty good)

this sounds like the old anime con tournaments where only stock controllers/no button binds were allowed and they did wierd stuff like single elimination. fg players used to go to cons just to win anime tournies for free but then too many people started doing that...

This reminds me of my first tournament back in 2006, at an anime convention where they wouldn't let me use a pad with six face buttons (but they did let a guy rebind all his poo poo so he had one button throws???). It was also one game, single elim, but the game was 3 out of 5, "tournament rules" as the organizer said.

I lost because I missed a HP x EX dash punch because shoulder buttons are a pain in the dick

The best part of MUGEN is its community and how people on youtube brag that they made a character that can beat Violent Ken in AI vs AI battles

The best best part is the Sean who beat Violent Ken because the guy who made him accidentally flagged his parry as a move that can be canceled into, so you see the startup frames for a really lovely Sean move and then he immediately parries and then begins to do another move and parries again and it repeats like six times in a row

Gonna assume it's this one since it's the first result on youtube and looks the part.

That moment at the end is like a hilarious knockoff of the Daigo parry.

Yep, this is the one

If you look closely, Sean parries regardless of what state he's in. Doing a move? Parry. Whiffed a throw? Parry. Recovering from super? Parry.

If only mugen could always be this glorious

MUGEN was a relic from the early 2000s

it was a mess but it was kind of a cool mess because you could create the ultimate dream match of poo poo like homer simpson vs drunken ryu and that poo poo owned even though most characters were completely broken

it was more or less a fun novelty at the time

MUGEN also had a strong tendency to appeal to grown men who wore Naruto headbands at anime conventions, though I think actual Naruto fighting games coming out in the US supplanted that

When I was in college, I met multiple dudes who said "mugen is my poo poo" without a trace of irony

That's probably why it failed, but on a more personal level, a bunch of my friends who were totally up for League of Legends or whatever, whom I did my best to convince of how good it was, really didn't want to play it. They were contrarian teenagers so I never really got an explanation out of them but something about that game just made people not want to play it. The League of Legends monetization stuff wasn't even in the game at the time, I don't think, and I don't remember having that hard a time finding matches. Fuckers just didn't want to play a good-rear end game with me.

You also have to remember that BLC actually has pretty high skill demands, which is the exact opposite of what most people want when they play a MOBA

Yeah, in retrospect, getting acquired by a bigger company was probably the endgame of Rising Thunder anyway

And I know there's been murmurs of Riot doing something fighting game related for a long time now, so it all plays out perfectly

In my limited experience it seems like everybody has a meter less combo that does 35 to 50% which is cool. Everything is dangerous

LB2 is just a high damage game across the board, to the point where combo damage has to be hardcapped at something like 75%

Does the PS4 release support PS3 sticks? I assume the answer is no, but I can always hope.
