And so I can learn to read this:

Ventana posted:

Good thing a Machamp player made top 4 in the World Championship last weekend (and was in grand finals last year as well).

I don't play Machamp yet (I'll probably try to pick him up as a secondary) but in looking at what Azazel does, Machamp relies on using his good armor from the far-ranged CA and b.X in duel phase, good ways to close in space with his j.X in both phases, his Karate Chop in the air which nullifies projectiles and is very useful to close in, and his very strong shield which lasts a long while. He does have tools to get in on the opponent, but they require some kind of read (which is not unique in Grappler/Heavy character design in FGs).

He very much looks like the embodiment of "struggle to make the reads in neutral, great payoff when close in" in a game with strong zoning options. But he can still close in with proper reads (j.X is really really good for this). Needless to say, if you don't enjoy playing that style or enjoy learning to compete with it, maybe don't play that character?

But if it makes you feel better, he's looking to get some nice buffs from the arcade version. His c.X can now be canceled into a roll, which might make it a nice low profile movement tool to help out duel phase even more.

Zelda's Master Sword is still breakable even after the DLC.

All they said was that it would always be in powered up mode while useable. They never said anything about it being unbreakable:

Here's the old Wii U thread. Not sure if anybody is gonna want to make a new one though.

https://forums.somethingawful.com/s...hreadid=3768436

Edit: It looks like the kickstarter for that Re:Legend game that was talked about a while back is about to close. Looks like it did pretty well. It got all of its stretch goals including a Switch version if I'm reading it right and almost reached nine times its original goal. So that's something to look forward to.

Pokken DX is adding private lobbies like how Mario Kart does it so it's probably worth a new thread.

I'm excited to play Pokken again, especially with, y'know, people to actually play it with. I've got a few friends who love Tekken 7 but I have warned them that Pokken has much, much more simplistic inputs than Tekken, but they're still very interested.

Oh, and does the Pokken demo have functioning online?

Yoshi and Kirby are both 2018, and anything else would have had to have already been announced I would think.

~~ISCAR MATTHIAS~~

Cait Sith is a poorly written character that was probably shoe horned into the story late in development.

The character has no logical or believable reason to join your party, or be allowed to join it.

Cait's going no matter WHAT you say.

Do the trial first. There's a pretty cool cutscene afterwords that got me pumped to go beat the game after.

Indeed. I wonder if it can top Robobot, which was the best of the lot. If it can, Even if it can't, the series is in good hands, and I'm expecting to have a really good time with it anyway.

Oooh boy.

Robobot had a fair few nods to 64, along with the rest of the games. Hell, it kinda implies that Susie got sucked into the same alternate dimension the Sphere Doomers came from, along with reverse-engineering Pix. And I'm pretty sure Star Dream was the OS of a Nova.
