The last thread was getting a bit puffy so it may be time to move on.

I know Gojira mentioned this already, but some more SFxT teasers came out.

One loves to wear tight, revealing outfits and long boots that show lots of leg.

The other one is Lili.

In other news, there's a new Guilty Gear game... sort of. Not really.

The mysterious new gauge and crazy angle shots on Ono's twitter make me think we'll have Ultra moves in SFxT now. I liked Ultras in SF4 and since the supers in SFxT are lacking flair, this would be a welcome addition.

That game is getting pretty crowded with big throw characters. I just hope they're not useless (as they sometimes tend to be).

The fact that this game has a good number of grappler/throw types makes this quite a unique game in Capcom's catalog. If it had Haggar and Alex, it'd come pretty damn close to another Saturday Night Slammasters.

Didn't get this. Is not CS be supposed to happen after CT? You will play both story modes or just the old one with new twists for the new characters?

Also, very happy about the leaked list of SxT chars being false...If you notice recent Capcom characters seems to match the early announced Tekken characters (King-Gief, Bob-Rufus); if this continues so we have left a grappler to match Marduk (Alex, Mika or Hakan), a girl to match Julia (Elena, Makoto or Karin) and someone to match Hwoarang (Juri? Remy?).

I really hope that Rufus is in this game (his presence in the trailer seems to indicate so, but one can never know for sure...); a Rufus/Bob tag-team would be reason enough to buy it!

And I'm not even a good player with either of them, but just for comedic value, it would be awesome!

I'm guessing it has something to do with the still unexplained second bar. When Bob went into shadow mode during his plate tossing antics I thought it was just a joke. Perhaps he was actually using part of the game engine. Hopefully we will find out more during the presentation at TGS.

While I like that everyone -minus Zangief and Lili- now has their super and tags posted all those shadows behind them are a bit creepy. Now I really want Ms. Kasugano to make it into the game so Dark Sakura can finally return.

Maybe they're the Jack versions of the whole cast!

I'd personally really enjoy the joke if they were intended to be 'dark' versions of everyone, but yeah, I'm guessing it's related to that second bar as well.

Pandora Mode is...already something...in something else. I guess when you sacrifice your partner you'll get as much gauge/time as they had life...?

But jeez, that was stupid of me, wondering if they were going to have Ultras. I had completely forgotten that it changes the camera angle when you do the double moves. The fact that I've never seen anyone do one of those in an actual fight threw me.

2 vs 2 should be lots of fun for parties and such. I'm sure it's a disaster from a balance perspective, but I bet it'll be lots of funnnnn.

Looking good - I thought the shadows that were added to the portraits yesterday were plot/boss versions, but it's nice to see that in the gameplay, and the aesthetics of Pandora mode, intentionally or not, bring to mind the Shadow characters from MSHvSF and MvC.

Being able to team-up and play cooperatively instead of making the game exclusively competitive could do wonders for the game and the genre, if more companies take that route - it's nice to see a fighting game engine for once enabling something resembling a mentorship mode.

The new modes are AWESOME, except that chaotic brawl free-for-all (GG Isuka related?).
Pandora mode is a good addition, better choice than x-factor and more similar to BOSS mode in Senko No Ronde.
But the cooperative gameplay is fantastic, and really a bit of fresh air in the genre. I'm more and more interested to this game every new feature is presented. I hope for a co-op arcade mode or local co-op versus battle too.

Pandora mode is interesting. The strategy to almost all team fighters has been about sacrificing one or more characters so the entire team can advance. What would KoF be without the point man getting his ass kicked for the sake of whittling down the other team and building meter? Pandora mode appears to be a distillation of that mindset. That, and I like the idea that Chun-Li is cheerfully waiting for just the right moment to bash in her partner's skull for a quick power boost.

Tokyo arcade guide has been updated since Safari is no longer the mecca of SF4. I was out for a short time today with a fellow bbs member to the arcades. With Tougeki/SBO just two days away, Shinjuku's Taito was like a hellhouse of top players. Daigo, Mago, Itabashi Zangief, Ryan Hart, Mike Ross, Filipino Champ were there, to name a few. The place was smoke infested like hell.

These new characters for SF X Tekken are... interesting. Unexpected.

They may turn out to be really cool, but if Capcom wanted to add mascots to the Vita, I guess I'd prefer RockMan (the original one) and Pac-Man.

As for Pandora Mode... creepy. But cool, nevertheless!

Now that's a commitment! I wonder if Pandora mode is going to be like the custom combo mode from the Alpha/Zero games. Unless this features the speed to get in and a very fast activation people are going to run away the second the other player triggers. But even if Pandora mode has optimal conditions the player better make certain they have their 100% death combo down pat because one mistake is going to cost you the round. It's going to be fun watching people try to figure out how to work with this mechanic.

Speaking of life or death, Dead or Alive 5 has been announced. However, none of the girls have been shown yet so there's nothing much worth paying attention to.

Looks to play a lot like the Basara fighter, but I was quite impressed by the character animations. I thought it would look kind of "cheap", but there's a lot of love put into it and the characters are lively. Menus and such look nice, too.

I played some P4U today, it's actually surprisingly beginner friendly! I thought every character would be hard to use like zato but it was actually easy to pick up.

Anyway stuff I noticed:
Game speed seems more like GGX than BB

I'm already finding easy 30% to 40% damage combos with Chie on my first play, never managed to get comfortable that quickly on BB or GGX (for my level of play that is, I still don't know how to play BB)

Combos with the persona is pretty easy to do, just press C or D and the persona appears and attacks, can easily do a sandwich too, they've got pretty fast air dashes

I got hit by Kanji and got paralyzed and my character stood there and I couldnt move but could still attack

Also the people playing P4U actually know how to play fighting games! So annoying that at both E3 and TGS i'd play sfxtekken and not a single person knows how to play fighting games and they just twirl the joystick

also I couldn't do ibuki's crossover kunai and all her target combos are gone and I have no idea what she's supposed to do in sfxtekken

Great to hear that P4U was fun. Too bad Naoto's still in development-- it seems like the game is ground-based and isn't as combo intense as Arc's previous titles, would that be a safe assumption?

I don't know if this will get more people to play fighting games or not, although I'd like to think it will. I guess it depends in part on how many P4 fans who try it don't already play fighting games.

Wow, they really kept the whole P4 aesthetic! Awesome!

I love his super where he simply throws his chair!

Game's looking great. Love the hallway bg. Definitely 3d, but most of the lighting and detail is hand painted into the textures with little reliance on a lighting engine for shading. I am a HUGE fan of this approach.

I suspect this game will bring in about as many Persona fans as SBX brought in Basara fans. The footage did, however, make me want to borrow a friend's copy of Persona 4 so there's that.

I've heard rumors that the crystal girl is Amy after a growth spurt but we shall see. But, yeah, this time jump is turning out to be a lot like weaker aspects of the shift in Tekken where Michelle Chang and Marshall Law more or less cloned themselves.

In other news, Haggar, Sodom, and the Mad Gear are off doing their own thing in SFxT. I didn't realize that Kabuki was so popular in Metro City.

Well, this is the problem with injecting a lot of change into a series' cast: change nobody and you get accused of just rehashing the same game-- change everybody and it loses its connection to the series on the whole. Personally I'm happy to play most fighting games at least a few times, regardless of whether it's a new series or not, but I bet that many many fans don't feel the same way. For me I'm just getting really tired of Soul Calibur after several iterations that I didn't really enjoy. The same is true for Tekken. Strangely enough, I'm more interested in SFxT than in TTT2, since at least they will have to somehow reconcile the two series' movelists and playstyles. Plus it gives me weirdly fond memories of Fighters Megamix!

I love it! Maybe Sodom has them practicing Kabuki! Rolento looks great, incidentally. Hopefully all this recent Mad Gear love will lead to appearances by even more gang members.

Strange though that we have three Mad Gear members in the cast but no Guy, Haggar, or Cody (or Maki and Carlos and Lucia!) yet. Yet!

Not really.

When it was revealed that Nina and Anna spent time in cryogenic storage, it was pretty obvious that Namco was only paying lip service to the time jump. They wanted to bring in Jin, and that was it. The rest of the jump was nothing but an inconvenience for them to either work around or ignore. And so Tekken got movesets cloned into kids/proteges and other characters just hung around with *maybe* some slightly "older" graphics.

That's why I didn't expect anything of SC5's time jump, either.

Great to hear that P4U was fun. Too bad Naoto's still in development-- it seems like the game is ground-based and isn't as combo intense as Arc's previous titles, would that be a safe assumption?



The game actually feels like it'll have a lot of crazy juggles, especially since you can move your character while the persona is recovering from an attack. I haven't tried any juggles though since I'm not any good with combo games.

Also after playing a few more times it seems it's beginner friendly only for people that have had fighting game experience already, because I kept playing and never lost to anyone. Also there are roman cancels and launchers.

I played like 20 matches of sf x tekken and I still can't figure out how they want the game to be played. but the game mechanics in the TGS version is vastly different from the E3 version so I guess they're still making a lot of huge changes. Pandora mode is really useless right now, you only get like 8 seconds to do anything and your opponent just needs to keep blocking and you'll die automatically.

ibuki's lk -> mk target combo is in the game and it can actually combo into a special move! nothing else seemed to work, c.mp can't cancel into a special move too. Zangief's standard okizeme of crossover jump 2LK didn't work, they recover from block stun incredibly fast. Also after picking Lili every single time I play I still don't understand that character.

In that video, Seth Killian seems disturbingly proud of Heihachi being able to counter everything with a single move.

"This is Heihachi's counter. Do something and he'll hit you. Doesn't matter if it is mid, low, or high. But it won't counter weapon attacks."

I guess that's debatable, but at least for Tekken 3 they had the decency of putting some gray hair on Heihachi's mane... This time it's like they're not even trying. Not that I'm itching to see a wrinkled and shaggy Taki on her 50s crawling over the fighting arena, but there should be some middle ground there.

I mostly think of the KOF XII/XII sprites as more muscular, but Joe looks thinner next to his old sprite.

Although it isn't just the muscle mask. The smaller sprite is more expressive, with Joe putting force into the punch (legs, arm, and back all bent, and his chest out). The XII sprite looks like he is doing stretching exercises. Are they from different parts in his move? (The XII sprite perhaps being later, in a follow-through part?)

That's a pretty remarkable comparison! I guess I hadn't realized the relative sizes of different sprites in different games. Also, gotta love the huge horizontal Honda, even if I find the HD Remix sprites to be pretty repellent. Also also, I enjoyed seeing the weirdly huge feet that SFIII Ryu has. I guess it makes sense that if Makoto's sprite has weirdly huge feet, Ryu should too. I'll have to look around for a Ryu sprite comparison between games!

In a different thread Toxico was heard to say:

quote:
Ha.... Not at all. The Zero series really totally didn't aged well to their fans even before SF2; the Zero's were already less played than the IIIs (tournaments for 0s were pretty much nonexistent, whereas tournaments for the IIIs happened worldwide all the time)... And after 2 was released I never once heard of anyone saying "I'll stick to Zero instead" (contrary to the huge several people that stated that they'll stick to III better).

So no. It probably has to do with the fact that the 0s never had a proper established identity and never stuck to one idea in particular, never figuring out what they were aiming to be; splitting fans in several titles. The IIIs all unified fans in one title, thus it did felt like a bigger community ever since the dreamcast died.

I had not thought about it before, but that's true. SF2, 3, and 4 all get attention but the Zero series has sort of gone away. As you noted it probably is because the Aughts games never did decide on what game they wanted to be. Speaking for myself, while I like the roster in A3 I don't actually want to play the game and would much rather mess around with the original Zero2 instead. It's not a good sign when the only thought that comes to mind when someone mentions the Alpha series is my hope that they stick Karin in a new game.

I wonder if this is why the Real Bout games faded away. While fun, that series never knew what it wanted to do. That doesn't, however, explain why there aren't constant international tournaments for Vampire Savior, since that feels like a much more natural refinement of the Vampire series. Maybe people simply don't know a good thing when the see it.

Since the big new feature in fighting games is release delays, Skullgirls has been pushed back to 2012.

This isn't the best news but I know better than to complain since I don't want all my stuff seized by the Department of Homeland Security.

Oh, I've come around and now like Zero 2 more than Zero 3 again, but I would wager good money that both got infinitely more good-to-serious play than III ever has.

Zero 3 was on the late end of the 2D fighters era and faded out, and Third Strike was years too late to matter, but Zero 2 was at the forefront in Capcom's 2D fighting renaissance at both the game center and at home with the Saturn ram cart. Nowadays, the hardcore tourney folk can pick games from various eras and may gravitate towards the highly technical III, but I wouldn't call their selections representative of Street Fighter fandom at large, even of the people who are mostly pretty good. Friends and I have had 3S for years but in 9 times out of 10 ignore it in favor of the Zero Collection.

It's funny, I'm probably the least technical of fighting game enthusiasts here at the Cafe, but Zero 3 just feels... strange. I love the huge cast, especially in Double Upper (Maki and Eagle-- CHECK PLUS) and I enjoy all the choices the game gives, but in terms of actually playing the game, I'm for Zero 2 all the way.

In general though I love the series and I think that it was much more influential on other fighters of the time (as in direct sprites rips) like the VS series and Capcom vs SNK than it was on its own.

Also, Zero 3 had way too many choices for a seriously ADD-afflicted person like me. Tons of characters + three different ISMs + alcohol =

You are part of the minority, deal with it! For example even as today in GGPO and stuff like that is very, very difficult to find someone playing the 0s yet is pretty easy to find a match for 3s or even 2s (though, I heard that now 3s is now not supported in GGPO; since the emu community "wanted" to "support" 3SO).

The 0s are an important landmark because it was like the first game where for real we had some "east vs west" matches and events. SSF2 tasted some of that but in a very, very small scale; and the other game that had that it was completely pointless since east could rape west in an embarrassing manner (TTT). The problem is that the community itself wore down the 0s using the games.... special features to their maximum (stun combos in 1, unblocable and invincible Custom Combos in 2 and the semi infinite V-ISM shenningans in 3).

Another dark point of that series is that since it's mechanics (and sprites) where reused for other sagas people "followed" the change as well since it felt similar enough (like, the poor saps that still stick to CvS2 (and there is still tournaments for that thing)).

Kinda OT, but Rufus was right, IT IS Ken Masters!

Toxichan, you are totally right nowadays as far as Zero vs. III play mechanics: not only were there some game-breaking discoveries in Zero 3, III is prettier and probably deeper.

But, m'dear, my point isn't about which is better or which is still being played by the dedicated but numerically irrelevent number of serious tourney folk. I was just judging whether III or Zero made more of an impression on the gaming populace/culture, jestingly resulting in analysis of which one would have its canon thrown out to work with IV's age differences among the schoolgirls. As a large cultural phenomenon for gamers, it's not even close. Zero was huge, and III was the faintest blip.

III is preferred now by the impressive but small numbers of people still playing old fighters seriously. Plenty of the huge numbers who loved Zero probably haven't played it for years (or III, if they ever did at all), but Zero's cultural impact is far and away greater. As usual, intense fandoms get a myopic view of how much their reality and experience reflects that of gamers at large, and that's certainly true of tourney players now. No one cared about III, at all, during its time.

When SFA2 and SF3:NG came out, it wasn't even close here in North America. SFA2 was played extensively, SF3 was noticed for its pretty sprites but otherwise received little play and players felt alienated because of how few SF2 chars were in it.

SF3 series received relatively little tournament play in North America until 3S, and even then 3S didn't receive a lot of attention until quite some time after 3S was released. I remember EVO 2k2 as a sort of turning point for 3S in North America: a JP contingent annihilated the US players, and this included such shenanigans as Tokido demonstrating Urien's aegis guard break and Chikyuu beating all comers with Twelve because nobody had ever played against somebody who actually tried to be good with Twel(e)ve before. The tournament scene for 3S in the US really picked up after that. Of course, 2002 was nearly 3 years after 3S was released! Kind of crazy when we think about how Capcom's most recent games have been receiving annual (or even less than annual, in MvC3's case!) upgrades.

This is purely anecdotal, but I also remember that when the SFIII series came out in my local (USA) arcades, they didn't get as much play as the Alpha/Zero series. I remember the general feeling was that while SFIII was a solid game, it was extremely technical and would require an investment in a large amount of quarters in order to become competitive. By comparison, the Alpha/Zero series felt easier to master and players also had the advantage of practicing at home on their own consoles.

Personally, I attribute SFIII's delayed popularity to it's console ports on the Dreamcast, PS2 and Xbox. With home versions on hand, players finally had an unlimited amount of time to explore and appreciate the game's vast depth. That might explain why 3rd Strike is still competitively played today and why the Alpha/Zero series has fallen by the wayside.

This is pretty cool. It's great to see that fighting game serieses that are secondary (popularity-wise, not quality-wise) are now finally viable enough to be made on HD consoles. The question now is who will be making it. Eighting seems like it's now the Capcom Vs. Games division.

This is pretty cool. It's great to see that fighting game serieses that are secondary (popularity-wise, not quality-wise) are now finally viable enough to be made on HD consoles. The question now is who will be making it. Eighting seems like it's now the Capcom Vs. Games division.

Only in a fallen world will Bloody Roar get resurrected without there being another Justice Gakuen game...

You, sir, are a gentleman and a scholar.

However, it is nice indeed to see that fighting games are popular enough nowadays to allow daring to resurrect minor franchises such as this.

I can't believe Bloody Roar is getting a PROPER sequel. I expected a pseudo port of an old game for 3DS. I'm interested, but I wonder if they have the muscle to put it together well.

We already got one of those recently. On Wii. I don't think anyone cared.

Also...

Justice Gakuen was never a great (fighting) game. Sorry. I loved it and I appreciated its accessibility, but it's not deserving of a sequel for its stellar gameplay.

I'm surprised no company has done like a "Gakuen Musou" type game, though. Seeing the school costumes in Musou 6 made me think that it would be fun to have a school vs school battle royale with stereotyped characters like JG.

From what I've read, the only relation between the Wii game and the previous series is the name "Toshinden". And even the name isn't identical, as the Wii game uses different kanji.

I think the best way to tell that it's not an authentic Toshinden game is to look at the developer. Only Tamsoft could deliver the real deal. (in that shitty gameplay but awe - some soundtrack kind of a way.)

It looks like Capcom is bringing on the bad guys with Juri and the two Shadaloo cronies with Vega/Balrog/Dr. Claw and Mike "Balrog" Bison. While I'm happy to see Juri if the first teaser turned out to be "Dan Hibiki and the women who love him" I would be fine with that as well.

Take a look in the video-- he's on a big wanted-style poster in the background about halfway through. It's a nice touch.

I thought that Phoenix Wright and Nova were pretty interesting, although honestly there is such a ridiculous amount of 'flash' in this game that I have a hard time telling what's a special move and what's just a regular punch or kick.

Yeah, I also don't think it helps that a lot of the special moves on characters like Iron Fist and Nova have the same yellowish orange color that the regular attacks do. Right now I can't tell if Nova is full of cosmic power or is covered in attack sprites. Perhaps it will be easier to sort out in the actual game?

This was something that bugged me about MvC3 pre-release. Those huge yellow hit effects looked horrible to me, in both screens and stills... but the minute I went hands-on with the game I didn't mind at all and suddenly everything made sense.

I didn't expect to like MvC3 at all and the whole thing has been a very pleasant surprise, in the first release it was characters I didn't want turning out to be great fun, in the second it's characters I actually wanted but never expected! Can't wait to pick UMvC3 up. I should trade in the first while I can.

"Re(5):Latest UMvC3 stuff" , posted Fri 14 Oct 15:14post reply

The new Blazblue really has me frustrated. It's cool as an arcade release and cool as a Vita release, but as a new disk-based home version, it's no good. Rebalance and one new character isn't worth dividing the player base over. As it stands now, I have no motivation to buy the game and if they add more DLC characters...well, I'll buy it, but end up spending arguable more than it's worth.

It's not about the money (for me), though, it's about alienating part of the audience. Arksys really broke the "true fans are few, but pay big" cycle with their last release, so I hate to see fighting games take a step back into a potentially smaller consumer base.

I think I would be more excited about UMvC if KOF wasn't coming out at the same time. By the same merit, I would be more excited about KOF if UMvC wasn't coming out at the same time.

The new characters looks great, but I'm still uneasy about the balance changes. Not that there SHOULDN'T be balance changes... I just can't wrap my head around some of these. Dr. Doom, for example, was already good enough thanks to his hidden missiles assist. Plenty of people used him (in tournaments, too). Why did he need buffs? If you're going to buff him, shouldn't you debuff his assist?

A lot of people complain that Tron and Haggar's buffs aren't enough to make up for their assist debuffs as well, but that sort of thing I'll have to wait and see on. Dr. Doom bugs me though, because it seems like they've created another obvious top tier character.

Well, I'm no pro, so what do I know anyway? Still, I would hate to see an updated version with crummier balance than the original, especially when they said their goal was to make sure no character was useless.

I also already expressed I'm not interested in purchasing BBCSEX. It's just not enough to warrant buying it, and I'm not desperate enough for any new story additions to get it. People upload story parts to youtube or nicovideo anyway.

And they've basically invalidated the purchases of the DLC characters for BBCS1/2, which I would expect from Capcom, but at least Capcom seems to make you still need to purchase Shuma/Jill for UMvC3 if you haven't purchased them already -- though I'm still mad that they released such an upgrade for cheaper than the original so soon, invalidating my copy that I only got a week's enjoyment out of.

It'll be just KOFXIII this year for me.

I know Blazblue is your baby and since you've dissed Capcom's practices so much, I admire that you're being a man of principle on this one.

Still, the fact that even you aren't interested in getting the new BB cements my fears even more that they're making a mistake on this one by crowding/dividing the market and demanding too much from their consumers.

It's a great touch! If you look closely to the poster, it brings MvC2 characters that didn't make it into MvC3/UMvC3 (I saw Cable, Psylocke, Rogue, Gambit, SonSon, Amingo, Jin Saotome and RUBY HEART!!; there are probably other MvC2 characters that I couldn't recognize yet)

Oh please. I diss any company down the line that actually deserves it. It's just that the way I express my opinion is ...a lot more expressive than this place is probably used to, but I like to think I do have a level head otherwise. I'm even pretty sure I kept saying things like how BBCS is just hitconfirm into hour long combos and how I actually prefer CT more, for example. It doesn't help that there's plenty of people who are fanboys of Capcom who take exception at pointing out even the smallest flaw in a Capcom game, but it's okay to say trivial bad things about a nonCapcom game, and I think that's the unfair part.

And Capcom just happens to make me frown more often because I'm very easy to anger when it comes to business practices I don't agree with. I give things a try at least once if I'm willing to shell over the bucks or if given the opportunity to try things for free, so there's no real prejudgment about it.

Do you know that there are people who play ONLY Street Fighter HD Remix? Come on, there's other fish to toy with by using a rising tackle. But seriously, these people play one game religiously, and they are no fun at parties because they always want to do that one thing that they're good at (the one trick pony phenomenon!) when other people just wanna play something stupid and casual like Angry Birds competition edition. And people made fun of me without provocation simply because I said I was gonna give Blazblue Calamity Trigger a chance. So I took them off my PSN friends list because they're narrow-minded assholes who I'd punch in the face

Okay back to Blazblue

I dunno why you're using me as the benchmark here as if I'm the biggest BB fanboy around, because I'm far from that! It's just that it was something fresh away from Capcom games and KOFXII just happened to suck shit (and I did buy that as well), but I have to speak on BB's behalf sometimes because other people won't, as if it's some kind of taboo shit to stand up for something that's not Capcom. Standing up for something not-Capcom happens to get you easily branded as a fanboy of said game/series, and I think that's a ridiculously fanboyish thing to do.

It wasn't because of anything you said about Blazblue. Blame it on the PSN. BB is the only game I've ever seen you play online and you're often playing it when I log on. Whether you're a "fanboy" or not, I think "if someone who put that much time into the series isn't interested in the new game, that can't be good."

I'm pretty much onboard with everything you guys have said regarding BBCS Extend... there's nothing here. More 1P modes that I'd sleepwalk through to kill time. One new character, another rebalance. I buy pretty much everything and I can't bring myself to even consider this one at anything other than $20 or less. I'm much more likely to buy SSF4AE in a moment of boredom.

Will be buying KOF XIII for sure. Been out of the MvC3 loop for so long that I can't weigh in on MvC3 changes at all, but I think the new character picks have been fantastic on both sides and they all look like a ton of fun, so I'm gonna scoop that one up too. The Phoenix Wright trailer was completely absurd. I'm into it.

You can see Lars, Mokujin, Dragunov, Devil Jin, Zafina and Alisa near the end, but they're only in there to throw you off. For the first 25 seconds, each teaser is only showing one character. The last part is more them saying "the character we just showed was one of these three. Guess which."

Well, you need to if you absolutely want to play them no matter what, but with Shuma virtually unchanged as undisputed bottom tier, and Jill being one of the only character of MvC3 being NERFED, you need serious dedication to decide to give 10 [currency] for them.
I mean, Jill was far from bad and had pretty amazing tricks up her sleeves if you study her for days dand days like another Viper, but why was it necessary to make her even more difficult to play as? Wasn't she already unappealing enough as she was, being super technical, BH5 Jill and DLC-only?

I guess. It was probably the only game I was playing online for a while as I tossed away SSF4 and MvC3. Grave, myself and a couple others played Tekken 6 for a small bit. But generally, a lot of the games I play aren't online as I've got a few PSN games and I like to play through stuff like MGS4, but I generally stayed offline for those unless I already logged in.

And lately I started learning Arcana Heart 3!

So now we have this mode for MvC3...
Wheee

I'm only interested to see the art for all the cards, but it seems like a nice idea for a single player experience. Or a way to screw around with friends? I wonder if it will be supported in online vs.

Similarly, I wonder if there will "non gem" options in SFXT and if that will be the standard or the exception among players. They seem to be pushing the gems a lot with the (lousy) LE coming with so many of them.

I will spend years trying to not suck with complicated/oddball characters, but it only took a few hours with Jill for me to say "not worth it."

That explains a lot! I got the impression BB was the only game you ever played. I log on automatically, so I didn't put much thought into that possibility.

That MvC3 mode sounds a lot like the old World Tour mode from the home versions of SFA3. It could be a fun little mode to fiddle around with. It's also nice to see that the game is trying to broaden it's appeal beyond being just a straight tournament-style fighting game. Still, things like this and Galactus mode are nice they are also making the first MvC3 look like the KoFXII of the verses games.

The gem thing sounds interesting in a MSH sort of way but I would like a better explanation of how the gems work and I would really like to know how these hunks of rock are going to be distributed. SFxT is a curious game in that every single addition to the game engine makes it feel like the whole thing is going to collapse in on itself.

Speaking of potentially useless SFxT options, I want the ability to have Paul and Guile swap haircuts.

I've become so used to terrible guest characters in SC that I don't know what to make of a guest character that doesn't look out horribly out of place. True, Ezio would have to be aging at the rate of a fighting game girl to make it work but it's a step up from that green action figure that was in SC2.

I was a little sad to see that the version of SFA3 coming to PSN today was the crappy-ish (but still great given the platform) PS1 version though, instead of the deluxe-ish Double Upper version released for the PSP a few years back (admittedly it's just because I want to play some more as Maki and Eagle), but I'm still really happy it's getting some attention, and that it's not a port of the arcade version that doesn't have world tour mode.

If you don't already have a better version of SFA3, and you can't find the SFA Anthology for PS2 (or you just don't have a PS2-capable system), you might as well get it despite load times, because it's the only other way you're going to see Birdie, Mika, Karin, Sodom, Juni, and Juli in a game ever again!

I don't see the Sega Saturn version in that listing. True, you may not have a Saturn up and running at the moment but at this point how much is too much?

More Soul Calibur characters have been confirmed. Some day I would love to play a SC game that looks like the character art. A trailer for Ezio has also been released. I forgot that the AC games had that convoluted modern day VR framing sequence. It also seems that Tingle from Legend of Zelda -or someone with similar fashion sense- will be pre-order DLC. Dampierre may be the oddest pre-order "bonus" I've seen in some time.

Ho ho, for a second I was grinning like a maniac for some reason at the prospect of Tingle being a guest character and then... I read further and looked at the link . I don't remember if I couldn't stand Dampierre in the PSP game. I'm pretty sure he was irritating and awful, even though I also suspect that he was not bad as a fighter.

Now that I've read that you can't disable gems and that they can be character specific, I have even more mixed feelings.

I don't have a problem with the system itself...even if there are broken combinations, if everyone uses them, then it just ends up the same as before. My problem is that it provides an obstacle to getting into the game. When you have friends over who haven't played the game, you now have to explain another system to them. If they are lame, like my friends, they may be intimidated. And every time you have a match, now you have to set up your gems as well...for multiple characters. If there weren't a terribly large number of them, this wouldn't be a big deal, but as they are touting how many there are, I feel like it might be a nuisance for many players. The system might even be really fun/deep/whatever, but I don't know that it will have the desired effect in terms of accessibility.

I think they mentioned...a long time ago, that there would be options in terms of character customization, but not as many as something like Tekken. They've probably long since forgotten about that and hoped that the consumers have as well, so that they can make us pay for 2P Tekken costumes we would get for free in any other game.

It's interesting to see how over the years Daigo has changed from what appeared to be a somewhat withdrawn person to someone who has accepted his cult status. Although I don't know how far the whole professional video game thing is going to go I give him credit for being a spokesman for something he enjoys. His willingness to shift his entire life over to a fitocracy style regimen is also impressive but that probably says more about Daigo's monomaniacal personality than it does about the stakes in the fighting game pro circuit. I can't imagine the piddly compensation he probably receives from sponsorship deals alone is worth that level of dedication.

Speaking of how things change over the years, I noticed that GamePro has changed from whatever it once was into a large, quarterly perfect bound magazine. I only bring this up because the issue currently on the stands features a listing of the top fifty fighting game characters. Those sorts of lists are arbitrary and silly but any compilation that includes the chainsaw dude from Time Killers but dismisses Yun as "the Poochie of Street Fighter" can't be all bad.

Then, you should do better than just waiting for that kind of stuff to come up: check out Retro Gamer Magazine. It's a really neat and well-rounded publication that I'd recommend to anyone who is keen on retrogaming themes. Be it articles about the history of gaming, interviews with developers of yore or emulation, this magazine covers them all.

There are 2 DVD compilations available so far, covering the first 55 issues of this great UK mag on .pdf format. I've only read up to #18 yet, but it's one of the best written and most gratifying gaming readings I've had in several months!

Thanks for pointing out that compilations are available in PDF form-- I've been thinking of reading Retro Gamer for literally years now but the cost of a subscription has put me off a bit. The DVD collections are really reasonably prices though, so I've now officially ordered them. Looks like volume 3 isn't far off either!

Since this is a fighting game thread I feel like I have to provide some content, even if it's just these goofy Tekken-theme-painted jets from Ace Combat.

A number of those new costumes are terrific.


Spoiler (Highlight to view) -
I'm surprised they dug up Hagar's greasy ponytail FF3 look. Personally I was hoping for a suit and tie mayor look and/or a feather boa but you can't have everything. At least Capcom managed to get a shout-out to Battle Circuit into the game.

Although I doubt they appreciate the joke, I also like that Capcom is now openly mocking Mega Man fans. At this point not having Mega Man in the game is more entertaining than his inclusion would be.

A lot of content doesn't mean a lot of good content. To paraphrase an old internet neighbor, I can put a dense amount of turds into a box and call it a lot of content.

But that doesn't exactly make the shit inside qualify the wholistic element as good. That's the problem with people justifying something as good by simply saying it "has lots of content".

On the other hand, if what you wanted was a box of turds, then denying yourself a box of more turds wouldn't make any sense.

I cannot stop looking at R.Kuma. That's quite an accomplishment considering he has to compete for attention with the get-up Rufus is sporting.

In other news, there's a new Samurai Shodown game but it's not the SS game I want. But since what I want is a sequel to the SS RPG I'm probably never going to get what I'm looking for.

EDIT: Just in case you can't get enough Yoshimitsu in your life he's been added to SCV.

Haha! I'd love to see them give Bob or Rufus a Bill Bull or G. Oriber costume, it'd look perfect on them. But I think those costumes would be too subtle for this game.

Too bad the execution is so godawful ugly.



This is a thread that links to an article with a picture of a lizard man with dual hatchets and (feathered!) wings and I can still say that these SFXT costumes are horribly garish and tasteless.

It's like many became desensitized to ugly after growing to like SF4 and now they have to up the ugly ante. I mean the game was ugly to begin with, and although I like the idea of seeing the Tekken cast rendered in a more cartoony style, the execution seems kind of thoughtless.

But hey, different mindset. I'm not normally the type to try and make my characters look as ridiculous as possible, but that has its appeal in a way.

"Re(6):SFxT" , posted Sun 4 Dec 04:07post reply

There was a Namco x Cacom event yesterday, with a focus on charities and booze. A bunch of games were playable, including SFxT. Some high level guys like Ryan Hart were present.

◆ Much closer to SF4 than Tekken.
◆ Quite amusing to play Tekken characters with QCF moves; it turns Bob into a sort of Cheng.
◆ Gem system was still not implemented in this build, which got some players concerned.
◆ Backgrounds are amazing! Best ones I have seen in a fighting game since CVS, I think.
◆ Overall, the few high level players I talked to are quite nervous about the game, but I was also told it takes time to properly master tag games because of the many exploits usually associated with tags (case in point: MVC2).
◆ Crazy how easy it is to perform combos. Even my mom could pull off the launcher fingers in the nose. No good timing necessary, really. Also, the resulting tag is safe because it will only tag if the launcher is successful. Then, the only issue is to find what to proceed with after the auto tag. Many people played Ryu+Ken (...) and a popular solution at the event was to proceed with a SRK.
◆ Could not understand the point of charging specials until you get a super. I thought you could cheat the charge somehow but it seems impossible. Only appeal seems to be against dizzy, wake-ups or to counter another charged move (ex. Bob's jumping special might be able to counter a charged hadoken from afar, even if pulled out in reaction).
◆ One guy did the X Factor thing by accident, but died right away.
◆ Tekken-prejudice alert! Slamming buttons randomly on the joystick with Marduk seems to weild good combo results.
◆ Hugo is Hugo but I felt some moves are missing!? Too big.
◆ Poison is beautiful but I was disappointed by her projectiles. I though it would work like Oro's Ex or SA balls. Not that convenient.
◆ Couldn't find how to fart with Kuma.
◆ Tekken players claim the game takes away 40% of Tekken characters' movelist. It reminded me of the polemics surrounding CVS.
◆ Good comment I heard from someone close to this game (will let you guess which side they came from): if they really believed in SFxT as a major fighting game, they would have been careful to release it when the calendar gets a little bit less jammed. The mere fact they release it in the middle of so many other titles show they are not so confident and are rather trying to make sure they capture the lighter SF or Tekken audience made active with recent episodes. Lowered expactations ahoy!

Things I have learned recently:

1. I'm not certain how useful Zangief's knock down with far will be but it's funny when you land it.

2. TTT2 is fun even though I had no idea what I was doing when I played it.

3. Daigo isn't very good with El Fuerte.

4. The sharper graphics on the arcade version of SSF4 means you get a better view down Makoto's top.

Did you play the real thing or the Tekken Hybrid demo? Hybrid doesn't appeal to me a lot now that I know TTT HD isn't online, but I do want to try TTT2. When I can borrow it I'm probably gonna do that, but it's a lot of money for stuff I don't really want. Bummer.

Also, are arcade SSF4's graphics significantly different? I guess I've never seen it in person but I couldn't imagine it was too different. The only SF4 machine I've seen had crashed and was displaying a Windows error message. Whoops.

Barring a quick google image search for SSF4 and SFxT, the best description for the difference between SF4 and SFxT graphics is the post rendering effects. SF4 likes using Inky post rendering, mimicking the style of the official artwork. SFxT uses a water effect. Like all of the characters are perspiring buckets.

I was in Tokyo for a few days so I got a chance to check out Taito Station in South Shinjuku and a few other places brought to my attention by the MMCafe Arcade Guide. The games that were getting all the love while I was there was SSF4, some Gundam game, and TTT2. KoF wasn't getting much attention but I'm guessing that's because all the players were making perverse color edits working on combos with the home version. Man, I forgot how intense arcades could get and not even with the top tier players. I saw one OL who was playing Tekken like it was her job or something.

As for the graphics, I know that SF4 -and possibly T6?- had slightly downgraded graphics for the home versions. Still, there was very little difference between the two and unless you land something like Makoto's Seichusen Godanzuki it's hard to spot the changes. It's not like the old days where the home versions dropped animation frames.

Again, all I have is some anecdotal evidence from the internet -since everything written on the internet is true!- and the rare occasions when I've been able to play the arcade games. As far as I know, it's just slightly smoother modeling in a few spots so it's nothing dramatic. The feeling that Yoshimitsu's head looks a smidge better in the arcade version isn't something that a YouTube video is going to be able to pick up on.

I've wasted enough of my life on games so that when I hear a play mechanic described I can make an educated guess as to how it will be implemented and affect the game. SFxT is fascinating because I have no idea how this whole gem thing is going to work. I'm not saying that as a negative, it's just odd to see something in a game that I can't make heads or tails of.

After seeing Kazuya's Spinning Demon kick in all its twisty glory I've become convinced the Tekken characters are quite willing to distort reality for the sake of a move.

It worries me a bit that only certain characters are being focused on. Decently-constructed cutscenes and dialogues are always nice but I really don't care about story canon in fighting games. I'd rather view them in more of the traditional "vacuum" scenario so nobody gets written off or ignored.

And as the release date nears, it's becoming increasingly evident that certain characters just aren't coming back. No Cassandra, Talim, Zasalamel, Mina, Amy, Yunseong, etc... and some of them don't even have reasonable gameplay replacements. And yet Algol and his scrubbing bubbles get to return. What's more, it looks like Algol still has "boss/guest" status and can't be customized beyond his "outfit" colors, or have his moveset available to custom characters, making him kind of a waste for people who like personalizing their character of choice.

Those are adorable! It's nice to see the series take a step back towards clear legible designs (though I liked the insanely ornate designs too--they made it seem like everyone was getting older and wealthier and increasingly mad with power with each game)

I didn't think that they'd be able to surprise me with megaman/rockman, but if they really did pick the MM1 US boxart megaman, then I will be quite surprised. Seeing as how I'll have both megaman and a wonderful surprise, I'd be much happier, and I'm not even kidding.

I rather like that Tira costume. It keeps SC's love of being overly elaborate without becoming so busy you can't tell what's going on. Plus it even brings in Tira's interest in birds so the costume makes sense for her character.

For every good thing that SC5 does -such as bringing in Mari Shimazaki- there are troubling rumors such as the suggestion that there are going to be three Edge Master style characters. But at this point the defining characteristic of the SC series is that it constantly teeters on the edge of total disaster so I guess this whiplash of good and bad is to be expected. While on the subject of SC5 here are some new 2P costumes.

Just bought SCIV (ok, I'm late...). Was wondering if SCV will have mangaka-designed characters like the previous game. And I expect a lot from Ezio, too (good choice in guest character, at least way better than the rumored LOTR characters).

That's a link to Dreamcast (2) designs. I read your post over and over again, trying to figure out if you were making a joke. Then I tried to make a joke, myself, but I've got nothing. I can't quite link Yoshimitsu designs and Dreamcast designs. I think I need Ishmael's help.

OOPS! I was trying to include that in an email to someone, and I suspect I must have sent him the Yoshimitsu link instead. Ah well. Here's the real one, double checked to make sure I got it right (I did)!

Hur, I wish I was clever enough to even conceive of a joke that could somehow involve both Yoshimitsu and the DC2, but you're right: if anyone can, it's Ishmael.

I'm sure by now looking at the actual correctly-linked Yoshimitsu image is a 100% let-down.

I wonder how often mistakes like this happen to me. When I post here I'm often supposed to be doing... other things so the results could be much worse. Does the material I handle at work have accidental Famitsu links included? Wouldn't that be a fun surprise!

So there are characters that don't have movesets and movesets that don't have characters? SC5 must have suffered from some serious workflow issues.

I'm hoping this doesn't spill into the rest of the game, but I have a feeling that's wishful thinking. It'll probably end up shelved like the last two Soul Caliburs after I unlock everything.

I'm looking forward to what horrendous creations other players make online. Last time it was just a bunch of Clouds and Snakes. I liked making their pants explode, though.

The promise of more exploding pants is the main selling point of SC5 for me at this point.

In news that might actually be stranger than exploding pants, it seems there's going to be a streaming reality show based around SFxT. If you thought the SS Sen videos that Toxico recently posted were tough to sit through you ain't seen nothing yet.

The best I've been able to find is at this place, but the screen is not the best. I thought sure some better ones would be floating around.

In SF x Tekken news, apparently the DLC characters have been 'leaked', and they're Leo, Christie, Guy, and Cody. I guess Haggar will never make it into a game with the other two Final Fight dudes.

If Haggar joined in with the grapple mania of Zangief, King and Hugo the game would turn into Final Fight x Muscle Bomber. SFxT is obviously out of control but I don't think even it could stand up to that level of insanity. Still, if more FF characters were added I wouldn't complain since five characters is obviously not enough.

Hurm, Dig Dug would be a great guest character, overweight or otherwise!

Five is not nearly enough! Seriously though I've always wondered how it was that Haggar got left out of SFZ3 when Cody got added. Ah well!

Unless something crazy happens, I suspect that if this truly is the list of DLC characters, we won't get more than just these-- wasn't Capcom just recently discussing how difficult it is to add new characters that weren't originally planned (in reference to nonstop calls for Megaman to be added to UMvC3)?

EDIT: as I went to find the link for the next part, I saw that it appears that Alisa and Lei are suspected to be joining the cast. I think that still leaves a slot or two, so we may yet get Yo Noid and Dig Dug. EDIT EDIT: Personally I'd like to see player 2 from Forgotten Worlds!

In related news about SFxT, Capcom characters will have 6 buttons for attacks, while Namco ones will have 4, as in their respective games. I had been wondering if the Namco movelists would be shoehorned into SF-style controls since this is the Capcom 'side' of the crossover, but instead we'll get a weird mashup. Seems like a real mess in the making to me, but who knows: it already looks like this will be in no way a balanced game.

I think you're a little mixed up here. A weeks or so back, Harada (the Tekken guy) was questioning whether he would go with a 6 button or 4 button setup in TxSF NOT SFxT. I'm wondering if the "only SF characters will use 6" is a troll attempt anyway. Or perhaps just a "we're so early in development, who knows what crazy stuff might happen!"

What worries me is that even if the game will still take some years to make, they're still pretty far behind on the design/decision process on things like standard controls (I don't know if every Tekken character has a 1+2 command that could be used for HP and 3+4 for HK, but surely it should be possible to make the 2 extra buttons shortcuts for some simple enough move? CvS 1 and 2 managed fine) and contemplating projectiles (Tekken characters have handled that with a few of their boss characters).

Hopefully Harada and his team are just tossing those things out there to see how people may react, to help them shape their decisions, but hopefully they already have some default solid ground to work from.

Oho, you're right! I misread the article as being about SFxT, not TxSF. As for TxSF, I'd personally love to see SF characters fit into Tekken style gameplay-- in other words, maybe no projectiles and with weird Tekken-style floatiness.

In case any of you are on the line about Soul Calibur V, it might be worth mentioning that the story mode is told with tons and tons of storyboard-esque illustrations. Kind of reminds me of Yasuhiko Yoshikazu's Joan d'Arc manga.

I don't know if this is a selling point for everyone, but if I had known this beforehand, I wouldn't bought the game with triple the enthusiasm (my initial enthusiasm was admittedly fairly low). The soundtrack is also extremely impressive and I haven't liked a Soul soundtrack since Khan Super Session. It's a shame that the LE comes with a "Best of" CD rather than the V soundtrack.

My time spent with the game is limited, and although I've bought all the main games, I wouldn't consider myself qualified as a Soul Calibur fan...but at this point...I would certainly consider it the best in the series and the only one I haven't felt sour about since II. I'm not sure how much that really counts for, but I'm pleasantly surprised for sure.

I thought the leak had more characters. I guess they'll be in the eventual "arcade edition" update. It's hard to look at the current character select screen layout and imagine only two more characters on that screen. The asymmetry!
