i genuinely would feel more embarrassed if someone walked in on me playing r. mika or laura than any character in melty or uniel

mostly because they'd see i was playing sfv, but still

Would've been a good move by Capcom to put SFV there tbh. Giving money to charity would have been an easy way for me to try it.

Apparently SoulCalibur 6 will give meter to a player with a 2-round deficit... I don't really think that's a great idea?

I've been out of it since 2 so I have no idea of the new mechanics, and if they work or not. But that one... I'll just hope it's better in practice.

Has it even been established how many things meter can be used for in SC6? I know GIs no longer use them and EX moves are gone, so that leaves.... supers.

You can use it to power up normal attacks, if I read this right:

Wait until Merkava is out, then you'll see some real poo poo.

BBTag has created such a huge boom of interest in UNIST that is pretty nice to see. It even has the most entrants at AnimEVO. Too bad my girl Hilda isn't gonna be in Tag. She's an evil lady who throws swords from across the screen while laughing at you.

I bought and play BBTag just for Mitsuru so this is good advice.

I like flashy characters so I play whoever is loving extra. Hilda throws swords and laughs at you, Baiken shoots a cannon out of the sleeve of her missing arm, Mitsuru arrives to fight in a limo, etc. It's not technical, but it makes me want to get better at the game because I'm having fun and want to learn how to excel at what they do.

You literally can't create better tutorials than Guilty Gear and UNIST have, and most casuals still don't play them/quit because they're too hard.

I keep meaning to try UNIST but inevitably something else comes up. For future reference, who is the character for dipshit scrubs?

The guy who won evo last year made this:

UNIST has combo missions (and at the bottom of them, 5 trials that explain the character and their options) so it's very easy to just go through the cast and see who you find fun without looking up a google doc each time.

I can't find a definitive tier list for UNIST except Phonon is top and enkidu is bottom tier I think?

Seth/Vatista/Phonon/Wagner are always agreed to be the best, and Akatsuki/Mika/Enkidu/Carmine are the worst. Everyone else is pretty up to personal taste. Squish and Saikyo have a tier list though I don't know if anyone else does.

https://twitter.com/squish2364/stat...163304032960512
https://twitter.com/saikyo_enkidong...847276870750213

Though new players should keep in mind, Akatsuki won evo and Saikyo places top 5 at majors with Enkidu. So don't worry about tiers too much.

A big reason the gore thing bothers me, even as a huge horror fan and someone who hypocritically owns and enjoys MK11, is that I feel due to the toxic nature of the games industry it's mostly people who desperately do not want to be doing it, that end up with it. It depresses me imagining someone on their 15th work hour of the day making sure the entrails pop out right, and they won't complain because they don't wanna get a reputation for being "difficult" and find it harder to get a new job in their dream profession. Games don't pay enough for people to stick around unless it's something they absolutely want to dedicate their life to and put up with all the bullshit, and the industry preys on that. All game devs deal with this pressure, but the added bonus of PTSD from dealing with gore is just an unnecessary extra gently caress you to their well-being.

I don't know how it is with movie VFX, maybe there's people who got into special effects wanting to do Jim Henson stuff but ended up working on Hatchet 69. But I'd hope it's a better field where if you don't wanna do that, you can turn it down and still find work you're better suited for. If someone signs up for a job knowing what it entails, then go whole-hog. I just would bet MK11 and TLOU2 devs didn't really see themselves watching snuff when they signed on. The people who got hired during Injustice or Uncharted probably were missing working on those games during the latest projects.
