Interesting rumors. Not farfetched either. I'm not upset with how the DLC is planned. Just wish the costume packs were cheaper. I'd certainly buy some if they were.

No rush, Prof! I just like these two new projects so much that it seemed like a shame for them to be slowly scrolling down/off the main page and BBS and out of the sight of newcomers and/or us.

Kubo is a combo game player who's won SBO/Tougeki a number of times, mostly Melty Blood and Blazblue. I don't think he's played KOF13 enough to make a firm judgement on the game, some characters like Yuri and Karate's position on the chart is just plain odd.

Little update: some rumors are confirmed, some proves to be wrong. The Vita version of SFxT will be released in fall 2012 but will have 12 addictional characters (I presum the console versions will get these as dlc: Lars, Alisa, Brian, Christie, Lei, Jack, Cody, Guy, Elena, Dudley, Sakura and Blanka).
Funny that Ono hates Karin so much and love SF2 chars as hell that paired Sakura with Blanka. I'm so sick of this love for SF2 (forcing to include the entire cast in every game), I'll buy only the set with SF3 chars :P

Yeah, the SF side is pretty damn boring. I'm glad they picked Elena, but the rest of this game doesn't interest me much at all. Ugly SF4 styling, ugly SF4 roster. Alex or Oro might have helped to push me into checking it out, but I think I'll wait until I can snag it cheap if at all.

Two questions:

Why are people acting like they know the One True Mind of Ono when it comes to character selection? Anonymous internet rumor mongering is being treated like it was handed down from Mount Sinai.

Why is Alex the new perceived pariah of games? The guy's been in five games, one of which came out after the fighting game resurgence. In the spirit of keeping things fair I wonder if there will ever be online screaming that SNKP is shoving KoF95 down our throats with its endless parade of Kyo/Iori while Jin Fuha is unfairly left out yet again.

Those five games are the SF3 series, Capcom Fighting Jam/Evolution and TvC. Hardly what you'd call great mainstream exposure there. Only one of them is available on a current console that has real netplay and real controllers. One of them is arguably the least interesting fighting game Capcom has released since SF1, so there's that too.

A lot of it comes from him supposedly being the main character of the SF3 series - in a way I think he represents them pretty well. When SF3 characters started showing up in SF4 I thought he'd be in for sure. Nope. For SFxT it'd be fun to team him up with Abel. Oh well.

Would I rather see Oro? Definitely. Urien or Q? Maybe. But it seems like Alex is an easier choice. The TvC thing, though - almost there, but not quite MvC3, not UMvC3, not SFxT, not SSF4AE - seems like a really lousy consolation prize. "Oh stop whining, Alex was totally just in a game no one plays on a system no one cares about!"

Regardless, even if SFxT had a good roster I wouldn't be sure about these play systems and it'd still be as ugly as shit. I'm curious to try it out but considering pretty much everyone I wanted to be in it is DLC (if at all) I'm not really in a hurry to spend a dime on it.

Actually, that there is probably the very reason you will never see him again. Ironically, his star debut did not make him a star...the very reason we know of Alex is an at-the-time obscure game that got a boost years later when people noticed that third version of said game was hot. If a mainline SF game, III, was not enough exposure to make Alex (or the series for that matter) famous, nothing is.

Like, the joke is that we remember Alex because of Third Strike, at which time Capcom had long since realized Alex was no star at all. Alex is "supporting cast" in 3S to The Most Beautiful Version of Chun-Li Ever Made as well as a bunch of other folks. Sorry, Alex.

Besides, Q is the true hero of SF III all Capcom games the world.

...not that I have anti-star prejudice. I still bet I'm the only person on this board who's ever masqueraded as a Justice Gakuen character one time.

I wonder if Alex was in SF4 instead of Abel if he would've gotten a boost. UFC/MMA really didn't have the exposure or interest in North America that it has garnered in the past few years, and an MMA-ish character introduced into SF during this time would've probably gotten a much more favourable response.

Still, Alex comes across as a pro wrestler more than an MMA fighter. What with his power bombs, suplexes, backhand chops, two-legged drop kicks, DDTs...

I don't think Alex is going over any time soon.

No seriously, he's supposedly in it. The SF3 one. Not as a playable character, though.

Then again, this was from the same source that said Yun and Yang would be future DLC, but they're not on Capcom's released list of Vita characters.

Alex woes


It's not that I don't sympathize, but there are plenty of characters we'd all love to see return, but I think popularity ultimately wins out. Plus the game we're talking about is Street Fighter X Tekken, and if you think for a second that people wouldn't shriek even louder if, say, Chun Li didn't make the cut since somebody wanted Alex in, well...

To be fair there are some decent oddities in SFxT already, like Hugo and Poison (my future team of choice, I'm sure). I'd love to see more weird choices (mainly Haggar, since they very nearly have his model SFxT-ready) but I guess I've made my peace with Capcom's inclusion practices. It's still better than trying to sell me BlazBlue with one more character, the DLC characters I already paid something like $21 for, and some balance adjustments for $40!

On a lighter note, looks like the Persona 4 fighter is coming to the US!

Some of the DLC costumes have been revealed, and they're a mixed bag. I won't spoil anything though!

While I think the concept of having one company's team dressing up as the other's is interesting, I don't think all of the choices were the best. Still, I like the sense of humor of this entire enterprise, which continues to make me think that the entire genesis of this game took place in various bars during a drunken conversation between Harada and Ono. Also, I had forgotten Steve was in the game! I'm excited now.

On a side note, I'm always intrigued to hear how weirdly some people pronounce characters' names. DOLL-sum and ZONGeev, ah well. At least this time there was no RYE-ooh.

I will not rest until Johnny Maximum makes his KoF debut. I can't wait for the day that I can team him up with Brian Battler and some other football based loser to create Team Pigskin. Perhaps one of the characters from Football Frenzy can be pulled out of mothballs to fill the empty slot.

This should help make that a little less impossible, if you're willing to compromise - at least his shoulder charge is already in.

It has to be the projectile version. Johnny isn't Maximum unless he is filling the screen with footballs.

I just did a bit of reading on J.Max and discovered one of his projectiles was called "Pigskin Thunderspirit." If I ever start up a cover band that plays nothing but classic rock standards I know what our name is going to be.

Har, did you perhaps read the excellent FAQ by Galen Komatsu from way back? I always wondered what happened to that guy-- he was a machine as far as early 90's NeoGeo game FAQs were concerned.

You're right, that's an excellent name for a classic rock cover band! Let me know if you ever start it.

You know, I'm a little bit amazed that J. Max and Brian are the only two football brawlers in fighting games. I'd have thought that somewhere in the madness of the mid 90's Street Fighter clones, there would have been at least one more.

I am excited about this. After the Zeong DLC for Gundam Extreme Vs. I couldn't think of anything else I wanted on the Japan PSN. I will pick this up at the beginning of April when I get more free time.

Hopefully this can help generate some interest and also get released on that JPN side of the US store if not the US release itself.

A breakdown of some of the mechanics in SxT. So much changed during production of the game it's good to get a clear picture of what the actual game engine is.

That is strange, isn't it? Back in the day when every American character was sporting a yellow mullet and star spangled clothes you would have thought a few more football players would be included in the mix. Even the Gouketsuji games don't include a football player and that's a series that had no sense of subtlety.

Welll... it's funny you should mention mullet and star spangled clothes, but last night I was recalling Eagle from Savage Reign and Kizuna Encounter, and axe aside he's very football player-esque. Turns out he's supposed to be a pro wrestler. Sounds sketchy to me, given his look.

Hinata is boring! If you have to date a female classmate, date at least Tiffany, for the event where you have to tell her what to cosplay into to gather more attention!


Spoiler (Highlight to view) -
The correct answer is "Sasquatch".

End of Spoiler



The teachers are all amazing. Special mention to Kyoko's alcohol problem, and the surreal event where you meet her sleeping in the street totally wasted on cheep booze. Hayato is teh sex, and Hideo has some of the most amazing events in the game. Daigo, indeed, is god tier.

Speaking of all things PSN, it looks like Vampire Savior is coming to the US. Too bad it's the PSX version but I doubt Sony is too keen on letting Capcom digitally release the Saturn version on their system.

Saw an interesting article about how Capcom had to search out the licenses for several items such as music when they re-released this game. Anyone remember anything in particular in the soundtrack or were they just taking tracks from Avex or something? I think I remember hearing something about certain voice actors retaining some rights, but I am not too sure about that.

I kind of wish Cyber Connect worked on a Rival Schools sequel using the Naruto anime graphics engine and maybe try to do the date sim too, but have some actual gameplay unlike Asura's Wrath.

I have to admit, the amount of effort put into hunting down licenses impressed me, and that's why I ultimately decided to put money/yen down on it despite my, otherwise, refusal to put money down on a Capcom game that isn't Monster Hunter or a new Lost Planet because Lost Planet 2 was really fun in multiplayer. Though not being able to understand what's going kind of sidelines my ability to enjoy the game for now, but at least when I become more fluent, and despite my lack of interest of VNs, it looks like there's lots of other things in it I can really enjoy.

First off, I must thank the Professor for the updates to the updates to the main page. Seeing new info on MMCafe is always a thrill.

Second, the release plans for VF5:FS continue to roll along. The number of custom items in the game is listed as being around 14,000 or some other equally absurd number. I suspect this means that you are going to end up with things such as 100 pairs of pants that are slightly different colors in order to fill out the list but I'm certain that players will still have plenty of ways to make their favorite characters look ridiculous.

I think it's unfair that VF players must spend hundreds of hours to have their characters look as ridiculous as Guilty Gear and BlazBlue designs!

"VF5: FS Details" , posted Fri 2 Mar 00:59post reply

Well, I heard that actually, there are only 700 items, Just for El Blaze Samba de Amigo Custome I will buy it

Online Mode
Up to 8 players, spectator mode included. Traditional options for room size, region, as well as to allow playable Dural

Customizable Costumes
Because VF5FS is close to the maximum size allowed for DLC games, all items other than the defaults are not included in the game and are sold as DLC. Items will be sold separately and in packs.

Training
Options for throw escapes, evades, rising attacks/speed and struggle from guard breaks.

Replays
You can save offline AND online matches. Frame data, etc. will be included.

License Mode
Tons of challenges as you fight the CPU. There's stuff like "all moves can be canceled", "half weight gravity" and "opponent health doubled", etc. Clear a challenge and get a special license.

Button Configuration
You can set up the controller at the character select screen, and there's also a "button check" option too so you can check to make sure your buttons are properly configured and working!

Well, the bad news is that you must download the items if you want to see your opponent characters as blazblue designs, I hope to see a compatibility pack like the one that SF IV has

Overall, I think that SEGA made this port just to teach everyone how a fighting game must be done for a console

I'm pretty excited about this, actually. Inexplicably, despite years of playing 2D fighters and generally stinking at them competitively, I'm really pretty decent at the one game I hardly played during its early years because (and I quote) "it's boring looking". I can't really explain my strange love for Virtua Fighter! I don't even mind the DLC for once. And it's nice that when playing matches against the computer it actually customizes characters' looks, so that I can play against Akira with cornrows, a huge beard, and sparkles around him. Or something like that.

Oh, also, Taka-arashi is back, which counts for a lot!

VF4:Evo's training & tutorial modes are the best. And that was back in 2003, before Youtube, where the only method to learn anything was by either scouring forums or FAQS. I learned the 3-input throw escape, the fact that you can low-throw u or d P+K+G quick recoveries, and so many more stuff. I never went so deep into the minutia techniques of any game before it. Even VF5's training mode wasn't as good as 4:Evo and I'm hoping VF5:FS would go back to that. I'm extremely happy that it's coming out finally.

The tutorial is one of the best parts - and apparently voice actors are listed for Dan I'm yet to see in any other roles.

The list of datamined (alternate) character models is still being updated at this point. Mostly odd stuff (halloween Lili...) with the nice pearl here and there (Elena's outfit from her SF3 endings). No Makoto Asuka though :(

Yeah, that was funny. But I think there's more SNK references in there. Bob has Cheng Sin Zan's belly-float, Jin has a zanretsuken, complete with the same command. And weirdly, Steve has Yamazaki's snake arms.

I swear I am the only person in the world who does not have full access to games months before they are released.

That selection of alt costumes ended up capturing my attention since I not only was trying to figure out what the costumes were referencing but in some cases it took me awhile to even figure out what character I was looking at. A listing of who was wearing what would have been helpful. Still, the costumes feature the triumphant return of Tiger Jackson so it's not all bad.

Kasumi vs Akira - I don't know what's stealing the show the most: Akira sounding all loud and badass (VF guys usually feel so muted and wooden, Akira moreso), Kasumi's teleporting shenanigans, the stage or the crossover itself.

Also, Tekken's Facebook is running a poll on character for TxSF, which isn't ment to be binding, but it's surprising for the inclusion of SF1 character, Go Hibiki, Captain Sawada and even Tetsujin: current results - no Haggar though :( but Alex is doing well, and I'm most curious to see how Tekken would handle Oro (or better yet, Dhalsim).

I guess you're not a fighting game unless you have some type of crossover. Anyway, I feel like Kage would have worked much better than Akira (Maybe he's also in it) since he's a ninja and DOA & Team Ninja is all about ninjas.

I like how their clothes were getting muddy as the fight went on. It reminds me of how your character could get affected by the environment in MK9 without being as over the top.

Sawada is due for a comeback. Will he have a chance to return to the roster in the same way that Todoh did in CvS2? Probably not. But Oro would be a fun choice. How would a character who refuses to use one arm play in a game where each limb is mapped to a button?

Considering in this case both series share some hardware history (and some control-related algorithms, though I'm less sure about that one) and some control similarities, this can work well. And even in VF isn't in the public eye as much as Tekken, it does has a feel or respectability to it that would fit well with the less jiggly image Team Ninja is trying to bring to the franchise - I'm all for it, and at least visually it's working better than expected.

People might end up getting him confused with Hayabusa - now Vanessa breaking some DoA faces, that's something that would really stand apart from the series' usual cast.

Still no idea if this will stop at Akira though, but if this game is making it to the PS3, I may just reward it for its renewed direction with my money, though I hope there's an option to tone down the stage and camera movement, it could get a bit distracting for the more competitive folk.

Akira looks like he fits rather nicely in that DOA vid. I hope it all ends up okay. I haven't bought a DOA game since 2 on the DC, but this is on my radar now.

If this works out well, I hope they skip DOA vs VF and go straight to Fighter's Megamix: Tecmo Koei vs SEGA. I want to see Musou characters in with Fighting Vipers, Bomb Jack vs Bean from Sonic Fighters, "Tecmo bowl" footballer vs Hornet, etc.

When I look at the current fighting games I don't see them being any better than the ones made ten years ago*. So I guess it's all just fanservice now.

Do we really need to settle for that? I guess we do, because the majority of people prefer buying new things over playing games that are actually good. But I'm not mad at the companies who are making money. I just think that people who want to get hyped are fucking idiots. (maybe we could create a new topic about this if people want to discuss about the current trends)

It depends, at the moment doa 5 looks way better than doa 4, arguably there are lots of people who enjoy kof xiii and find it better than at least 2002, which also, has a way better version on 2002um

VF FS looks awesome, same with persona, and the list goes and goes

At least I can't find today games being bad or something, maybe are not as good as old games or maybe people need to get rid of the nostalgia glasses, but overall, I find the current build up of games fine

I would say it's half/half? The problem is, fans tend to react poorly to change. I think that the fighting game genre needs a huge game changer, but everyone is pretty much afraid to do that.

I personally am enjoying some of the new fighting games that are out, but I still yearn for something more... creative.

On that front, Capcom at least may have already spent its ideas on SFxT - they knew that thing would sell regardless, so they felt free to be as experimental as they could, and reactions were all over the place...

On what front? Games that deviate from the usual formulas to varying degrees (from DoA to SSB, for example) get dismissed so readily by recurring consumers of the genre the it makes it risky to trysomething too different.
I'd rather fancy, say, a way to customize a character moveset (think God Hand or Dissidia), but balancing that would be way too much trouble when you consider the relatively small game changer gems were supposed and how people reacted to it (seems to be calmnig down though), especially when taking into account tournament potential.

Phoenix could be such a cool character if the gameplay where a bit better, instead of his bad method to gain power where is so hard to collect evidence and also he could find useless evidence, I would had done something like west where even though his level 1 version is really bad, he still has a reliable way to collect evidence, it would have been better if somehow he could guarantee to get a good evidence just spending one meter in some sort of combo, or something like, then spending two more meters he gets in his best mode

Wow, it looks cool! Akira wouldn't be a character I'd choose to feature in Dead or Alive, personally (I guess Bare Knuckle's Axel and Blaze would fit better - thinking about it, I wouldn't complain if these two were inserted in the next Virtua Fighter game duly adapted to fit in this series, kinda like Tecmo did with Hayabusa in DoA), but this video makes it look like he fits nicely into the game.

BTW, I know most gamers don't like DoA as much as Tekken or Virtua Fighter, but I must confess I find it very entertaining. And not because of the "jiggly physics"; it's just somehow relaxing, easier to play (plus the beautiful graphics; DoA may not even have the best graphics out there, but somehow Team Ninja just makes it look beautiful).

Well, hype IS a big part of the entertainment industry (in which videogames are included), so it shouldn't be a surprise that a company will try to hype every new product it has to offer.

That said, I wouldn't say quality is being ignored by fighting game players. Hype tends to die shortly after the game is released; by then, the only thing that will make players stick to a game is its quality.

---

Changing subject, apparently by the end of March the next Official Xbox Magazine will reveal "a killer sequel". Could this be a certain fighting game series which had "killer" in its name and which hasn't had a new game in over a decade?

I hope so! And if it's indeed getting a sequel, I hope the gameplay and music in it are as good as the ones in the previous two games (and that it doesn't follow the Mortal Kombat route concerning depictions of violence).





I can be any person in the world... maybe I'm this person right in front of you... maybe I'm not.

I played a bit last night and found it to be very SFIV-ish in look and in gameplay. I'm surprised at how good of a job they did making the Tekken characters play like they're in a Street Fighter game! The animations and effects are nicely done, and the backgrounds look great, with good cameos and detail.

Prior to the game's release I studiously avoided the outrageous amounts of gameplay footage out there so that I would be a little bit surprised at how different characters play (And speaking of which, wow, this game was promoted more than any recent fighter I can recall-- even more so that MvC3, I think. Plus it was like Capcom distributed 10,000 copies of it weeks ago, so that it could be completely delineated on 'actual' release. Crazy!). Hugo feels a lot like his SFIII self to me, but I'm really no expert. Poison plays exactly like I thought she would-- lots of Final Fight looking moves and such. Also, her 'color 2' is Roxy! One thing that I'm puzzled by is that Pacman and Megaman appear to be locked to start with, and from what I read, they'll be unlocked by free DLC next week. I can't figure out why that would be. Toro and Kuro remind me of playing as Kobun in MvC2.

The sound keeps bugging out, but I'm finding the netcode pretty good actually, has actually been playable with people that I couldn't play sf4 or kof with because it was too laggy.

I had heard about the sound glitch before I played, but I didn't expect to get it every single round. Actually, I didn't have a single decent fight, even with the "best" connections. Maybe it was just luck of the draw, but what I experienced was dramatically worse than SF4 or MVC3. The general inability to do anything properly resulted in time overs every single match in my case and with the people I was watching as well. I wish there was something I could try to figure out what's wrong.

I like the game itself, though. It's accessible without being shallow and the combo system is very intuitive. You still have your crazy links like SF3/4, but even if you haven't practiced for hours, you can guess that any character will have a chain->EX move wall bounce->juggle.

I'm delighted by the wealth of attacks that many of the Tekken characters have. As of yet, I don't play a single SF character. Having a fighter with so many completely new play styles is really nice and a lot of the Tekken characters are "my type".

The game feels a bit like a mix of SF and KOF to me. Maybe it's the "weight" of the characters being lower than SF and the speed being a bit higher. The flow of attacks feels more "KOF-ish" to me, too. Still, since you can't roll, run or hop, projectiles and anti-airs are still effective.

The thought processing centers of Daigo have yet to fully translate these so-called "emotions" that earthlings feel.

But what is Daigo, or Daigo's ghost writer, going to talk about for 250 pages? Since someone in the publishing world is crazy enough to put this book out I'm hoping someone else is crazy enough to translate it into English since my curiosity would compel me to pick up this curio of a title.

True, Iincho wore a jacket the same way but she wasn't nearly as athletic as Asuka is. The Bryan/Urien mash-up is the stuff of nightmares so I guess that makes it good?

Well, and it's also interesting to try and decide what they're referencing, as has previously been mentioned.

"Re(7):SF x Tekken" , posted Sat 10 Mar 22:43:post reply

Got the game early this week, but started playing seriously today. I really like it, for now.
Gameplay flows well, not sluggish as SF nor bouncy like Tekken. It reminds me a lot the late 90s Capcom games, has bits of Justice Gakuen (crazy tags), Darkstalkers (chains) and Marvel Super Heroes (improved Gem system). Even the music is more retro-oriented than the usual (SFIV has very good remixes, but most tunes have a "modern" vibe), making most of the game a reminder of the golden era and a new product as well. Is clevery done, imho!
I like how the Tekken characters are integrated in the gameplay and I love the graphic style on those characters, it's not "theirs" but fits them a lot in the same way.
The game is very accessible and fun to play, is not immediate but you will get comfortable with it as soon as you play the training session, and familiarizing with mechanics and frames is very natural and not requires much study (at least at average levels).
Single player mode have poor content but is long enough to keep you busy while learning (benkyo! mode) while online is challenging and fun as SSFIV's.
I dind't find any major flaw till now, there are some roster choice I don't dig and I find Pandora Mode absolutely useless (but probably is just me that don't get to use it properly) but to me SFxT is a great game and one of the best fighters this generation.

Side note: not like so much the extra characters on PS3. The cats are fun to watch and have a very silly theme song but they're weak with a stamina that must be of Gouki's Grandma and are a pain to play online, even just for fun matches (even if the victory quotes of the characters fighting the cats are hylarious!). Cole is good to watch but not much interesting to play, is a zoning character on defence and a juggler character on attack. Quite strange, but have played him few times, maybe I had the wrong impression.

So far the only thing I'm not liking is the gem system. Not because I think it's overpowered, but rather I find it cumbersome and not much fun to sort through. Customizing the characters is not a bad idea but it needs to be more streamlined like the TOP system in MotW. Perhaps some sort of graph of bonuses where you could adjust the parameters would be faster?

Otherwise I'm liking what SFxT is doing. I think having Tekken be so wildly different in playstyle actually helped the crossover. Instead of nitpicking the differences I'm treating them as what they are in this game and I find I enjoy playing them as a result.

It's funny, I'm looking forward to trying out Mega and Pac but I have yet to play or even look at Cole. I have some sort of mental block that won't let me even see him on the select screen.

Terrible imput lag (sometimes don't even block, many moves input aren't recognized if done very fast), crazy sound bug that miss voices and effects, strange "zato mode" I would never see again in my life.
About this: I was normally plaing when suddenly the screen becomes dark, with the characters replaced by shadows you can barely see while sound and gameplay flows as normal. Is like playing blinded, seriously crazy. Anyone experienced this? No one in my player list noticed that, but I continue to ask around.

Net code

Capcom's explanation of the sound "glitch" gave me the impression that the game is suffering a bit by allowing 4 players to play at once. I don't just mean Scramble Mode...I mean the option to play as teams of 2, where it would still be registering 4 players at one time. It might be more complicated than that, but given the limited information I have, that seems like a logical conclusion. As such, I wish they would have it set up where you could forcibly play 1 on 1.

I did have better luck with lag when I played Ranked, but it takes so unreasonably long to find a match that I didn't stick with it for more than a few fights.

I hope Capcom's idea to trickle in content over an extended period will also give them time to re-evaluate some changes they could make the to net code.

Just that Capcom hasn't done a good job of supporting community events or trying to make Street Fighter "professional" and when they do show up to tournaments they just want free marketing and focus testing on games in development.

I am not sure how old that was recorded, but Capcom has gotten better at throwing money into the scene. They recently had that atrocious to watch Cross Assault "reality show" with $25,000 going to NerdJosh and they said they will put $500,000 into the scene as well. I am not sure if the $25000 came out of that but that is still a lot of money to go around.

They recently had that atrocious to watch Cross Assault "reality show" with $25,000 going to NerdJosh and they said they will put $500,000 into the scene as well. I am not sure if the $25000 came out of that but that is still a lot of money to go around.

Actually I think they've gotten better at throwing more money into that them fighting game scene and marketting than they have into actual game production

Well, they are releasing large fighting games fairly recently, I mean look at SF4, MvC3, Tatsunoko, and now SFvT. I don't really care for Marvel, but they are creating a ton of content!

According to the latest blog, the developers are going to be "changing the specs" of the netcode so that the sound issues will be improved. That sounds very interesting. More details will be released later, hopefully with the release schedule announced during April.

Infinite combos will be patched.

Also, some sort of additional content announcement will be made on the 20th, live on Capcommunity.

Since it seems the sound issues are related to trying to get four players online at once it makes me wonder how much that aspect of the game is actually being used.

Early DoA5 videos are being released. I appreciate that they are trying to update the character models a bit but, sheesh, what happened to Hitomi?

Hi, Hitomi...when did you become so...white? I know I (we) was complaining about the anime doll look of DOA and how it lacked any underlying hand-drawn character design to be approximated in a more modern way with modern graphics but. But. But. That is pretty weird-lookin', especially for the "main" character of the series. Not very much bouncing, either, for better or for worse (probably worse).

I'll save my "you can't appreciate real beauty!" Hitomi rant after all the other characters have been revealed if people are complaining about less boob and more interesting faces (okay, okay, she's funny looking, but I love her). I hope we have one or two characters with super boobs (instead of everyone), but...

The breast animation is the cheapest variety, with just sort of...wobbly clothing. I'm grateful for something more subtle than the previous games, but I'd like something more realistic, too. Here's hoping this gets improved upon. They could learn a lesson from SCV, where breasts of varying sizes are all represented fairly well in and out of motion.

I think part of the problem might be that the facial animation possibly hasn't been included. This is okay for Kasumi and Ayane since they have one stock expression (doe eyed innocent and slighty bitchy, respectively) that they use most of the time. But without any animation on her face Hitomi ends up looking like Dopey from Disney's version of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. At least I hope the issue is as easily correctable as that.

Personally, I don't think Hitomi looks that bad. But yeah, facial expressions will probably be improved by the final build of the game; I remember reading an interview with DoA5's producer where he admits that this is still a very early beta version, because they wanted to figure out what should be improved and have enough time to properly implement these improvements.

That kinda reminds me of Street Fighter IV, although the problem there wasn't with facial animations, but with Chun-Li's face... how many times was her face changed until the game was released?

I had forgotten about those early SF4 heads. Forget about making new costumes for Ryu, one of his alts should be that freaky, punch-drunk head he had during the beta instead.

In keeping with the spirit of DoA, when promoting their collaboration with Godsgarden Capcom went with the old reliable idea that sex sells.

I'm just happy that another decent fighting game series hasn't completely died. I was never a huge fan of DoA, although I recall Hardcore for the PS2 with some amount of fondness (I think it was my second game for the console), and I loved the Dreamcast version even more because of all the goofy options. I also like how wrestling characters actually feel a bit more like wrestlers than they sometimes do. But I seem to recall that 3 and especially 4 were steps back in terms of the overall engine). I think perhaps things like fighting engine may not have gotten as much funding between games as boob physics did.

In other fighting game news, .hack// gets a fighting game? Craziness.

Possibly. I played DOA4 with my friend last night and it's not so... bad. Just there are some questionable decisions, like putting random objects around or having the environment get in the way of the fight a bit too much. DOA5 looks a lot better stylistically, there is less "bounce" and the environment stuff seems mostly visual. So I'm kind of interested!

Yes, here's hoping that Ono is okay. As much as I roll my eyes about his constant goofy behavior, I think he's become a good face for Capcom in general these days. As for his age... no clue, he could be in his thirties or his fifties based on his appearance.

Funny, I'm not certain I've ever seen Ono's age listed anywhere. He started at Capcom in 1994 so he's maybe in his early forties?

Anyway, I hope he's okay. While his willingness to be the public face of Capcom of Japan's SF shop helped generate a great deal of discussion and press it also meant the poor guy had to attend every dog and pony show that had a console running a fighting game. I wouldn't be surprised if it all caught up with him.

Don't get too excited, the background is the same as a stage in-game that also features Yun, Yang and their girlfriends. I think it's a mere reference and nothing all.
However, is rumored that SFxT will have more dlc coming after the Vita version, including a new set of costumes and alternate version of stages (similar to MvC3 --> UMvC3). But is also stated some time ago that MAYBE (take this as not true, please) there will be more characters coming (hinted at 2 packs: one with FeiLong, Alex, Leo and Lee and another with E.Honda, Karin, Jaycee and Dragunov, plus a rumored boss pack with Gill and Jun Kazama).

I'm not expecting Yun nor do I give a damn, it's just a really puzzling association, there's nothing tying those 2 charcters together other than "they're both in SSF4AE" - at least the aliens in the Paul pic were a reference to an ending of his. Before I read the Yun specilation I was cracking my head thinking of a Final Fight character taht might fit the shape, and Jessica Haggar didn't quite fit.

As a fun tidbit, the screen Blanka holds on to in the new animation reports food poisoning at El Fuerte's restaurant and Mike Haggar becoming mayor of New York (what'll happen to Metro City? my hopes for a CvS3 like to think that Geese moves in).

I did know he was in Rome and apparently fine. SFxT is a game he produced so if he can support it in any way he's in charge to do it, because he's, well, the producer. It's uncertain if Ono will take this role in future games, I don't think Capcom would fire him. I personally think he's better than Inafune (that actually did NOTHING) while handling the fighting franchises.
The thing I'm a bit puzzled is how we didn't know the reason why he was hospitalized. I'm in the health branch, and in similar cases where no info is shared is often a result of greater problems than just stress or fatigue. I mean, if it was really nothing serious, everyone should have known, for sure. And was Ono himself that tweeted that leaves the main stage for a while and the producer of SFxT Vita is now Tomoaki Ayano as seen at Captivate.
