I ask this because I genuinely do not know what Rosas actually did at Capcom besides making multiple PR blunders.

So I picked up Under Night Late on the Halloween Steam sale because I picked up the game when it first hit on PS3 and remembered liking it, but also don't remember why I stopped playing it.

Holy hell why is Yuzuriha so hard to play despite how I like her the best

And holy loving poo poo what is with this demon bird Hakumen looking motherfucker with noodle arms having full screen grabs

And what in the gently caress is with this dude with the full screen scythe attacks

But besides that, the soundtrack has some absolute bangers.

Speaking of handwarmers, one of the guys (Joey Fury?) in the Tekken tournament yesterday literally came onto stage wearing heavy winter gloves. I've yet to figure out if it was an inside joke or if the man takes the blood circulation to his hands very seriously.

I have always been curious on what the going rate is for carpal tunnel syndrome with a lot of long-time pro FG players, especially Smash and Tekken that require lots of hand motion in rapid succession.

I would love to play Xrd more over CF personally, but currently IRL friends are on CF something fierce. The one I play with the most loves Es and that bitch is annoying as gently caress to deal with.

But I like playing as Nine, so my goal is to get good enough with her that I force my friends to quit and go back to Xrd.

Kagura is fun though, even though I hate charge characters

I haven't kept up with Melee since undergrad, but I have heard that the skill gap between a lot of brackets of Melee players is absolutely insane these days, which feeds into this kind of hero worship.

There is baggage to go around across all fields of the FGC, but Smash players do have a disproportionate number of people who love spiking their controllers after getting some salty losses. And I think one dude punched a hole in the wall of a public place? Man, save that poo poo for your own home

Play games with IAD's and learn them. They're good for you.

I ended up getting an arcade stick around the time Persona 4 Arena hit, and it was rough doing IADs. But after learning that a 9 input works a lot better for the jump, getting used to it got a lot easier.

Playing Nine in BB and Ky in GG is also getting me more accustomed of to Super jump and Jump Install stuff. Of course, it took me a few years to get comfortable doing a lot of this stuff without killing my hand.

It's possible to do an IAD with an input other than 9 neutral 6? That sounds horrible.

9 neutral 66 is what I typically do now, but when I first got the stick, I was trying 8 on either side like a dummy. I hold the stick between my ring and middle fingers and going from 8 down to 6 always sucked more than just trying to do a diagonal.

Top 10 Anime Fights

There is a certain sense of solidarity when, possibly without a single word, someone goes Dragon Install and you as the other player are like "gently caress, I'll go full dumb with you" and also Dragon Installs.

I have certainly never seen such with other fighters anyway (except maybe Tekken).

I am also playing BlazBlue with IRL friends and every moment I wish I was playing Rev2 instead, so go with Rev2.

Why would the characters being able to do throw after throw be a bad thing? Couldn't the opponent just tech out of the throw?

It created the problem where top players would rather just get thrown over and over than miss a tech due to the shimmy/jab, possibly get crush countered because they read it wrong, and then eat 70% of their life.

Pomp posted:

there's so many solutions to this that don't involve making bad throws even worse, such as making a good game with good baseline damage instead of having everything be like a slap on the wrist except crush counters

I definitely agree that there are definitely too many ways they could have done this. Based on that Ken video comparison floating around, now it just seems like you just comically slide two feet away but if everyone except probably the top 5-7 characters are going to have stubby everything, well..

mango sentinel posted:

Yeah, watching a tournament match where someone lands three to four throws in a row used to be galaxy brain yomi poo poo but it happened like one out of every three rounds at Capcom cup. The problem isn't throws being are good, it's that all the options against them suck poo poo. Capcom's solution: nerf throws in a cartoonishly artificial way.

I remember back when SFV first hit, people were blasting the poo poo out of Justin Wong due to eating three grabs in a row, and I get it; getting grabbed that many times in a row usually doesn't seem like something that ever really happens especially if you play at that kind of level. Fast forward to the past year, commentators are now like "I'd rather eat the throw than miss the tech and have this Urien/Balrog/etc run a train on me straight into Stun City, and then do it again."

Like, I know that SFV is usually better in my head than when I actually play it, but the S3 changes so far still are like "is... this really how you want this game to be played?" But eh, we'll see once more stuff trickles in.

... Or I could just play Under Night because learning Yuzuriha is kinda fun despite how I'm rear end with her. Hm.

The correct answer by a long shot.

Right after that post, I booted up Under Night and played for a bit in Arcade and Training, learning how some of her stuff connects together, and was like "... you know, maybe I should give SFV a chance today." Went and downloaded the update for it and everything.

Played about 5 rounds as Cammy against some good opponents for my lower level, and then sat with the game running for about 2 minutes in pure silence. All I could think of was "... did I have fun with those matches? I... honestly cannot tell." Afterword, I just said gently caress it and booted Under Night back up.

Menat is pretty fun at least, but it's a shame she's not in a better game.

Though I'll say, I've started playing SFV again and have fun, weirdly enough.

I love Menat even though I will never actually muster the patience to practice with her.

Of course, Capcom definitely wants people to play her in the most unfun way possible given how they hosed over V-Trigger combo scaling (which is crazy because her KOF-esque combos are what makes her stand apart), and they really, really want to make her Orb-less attacks better and maybe her Orb attacks shittier.

So I played my friend who plays Raven and this brings up a lot question I had on his pressure (assume I am Ky).

So say he knocks me down in the corner and he uses the Orb for oki and I’m blocking.

If he’s setting up that command grab what should I be doing? If he correctly guesses the diagonal grab, I’ll just get snatched if I jump. For the normal command grab, I’ll usually get snatched unless he fucks up the timing and I don’t know the matchup well enough to know if Ky has something faster or safer.

I want to try to learn how to deal with this situation at least before he starts learning IAD mixups

Majority of the community will likely be on PS4.

But if things go well, PC should still have a pretty sizable base for while (in other words, it's not probably not going to pull a Marvel Infinite and implode in less than a month).

Either one is fine. If you have friends picking it up, go with what they're going for.
