AIIIIIIIN'T THERE SOMEBODY WHO CAN STOP THIS FIGHTING MACHINE?!

Yes, despite Capcom management's best sabotage efforts, Street Figher V has improbably survived all the way to its fifth season, and evolved from a sad little mini-game into something that's not only less ugly than SFIV and less boring than SFIII, but occasionally almost as much fun as SSFIIX and Zero 2-3 on a good day!

Capcom's going to need to haul some ass if they're serious about releasing five characters in five months, but apparently pro wrestler Kenny Omega aka Beefcake City Mayor Cody is going to announce it all on August 5?! Will Ono escape Tsujimoto Jr.'s cruel prison and bring us the sensible roster we dream of, with Sodom, Rolento, Haggar, Hakan, and Maki? Or are we doomed to the thrilling return of Dan, Sean, Remy, El Fuerte, and Decapre? See you at the races.

-- Message too long, Autoquote has been Snipped --


Are they really going to announce all five newcomers on the same day? I mean, yeah, they did that in Season 3, but it seems to be wiser to announce them one by one, to keep the hype going.

Anyway, apparently there is a set of SFV tarot cards which included G before he was officially announced, and it also brings Rose, Oro, C.Viper, Elena and Rolento. Those would be quite good choices, although personally I would like to see Haggar finally added in a SF game (and Dan could be nice if Capcom toned his goofiness down a little bit and made him a viable fighter - there are some old SF games where he is actually not bad).





Maybe I'm this person right in front of you... nah probably not though.

I don't think the world is ready for Oro's nuts in 3D.

Meanwhile, if Elena is in, maybe the global political climate will actually pressure Capcom to make a competent redesign for an orange-skinned, blue-eyed, white-haired "Kenyan" who does a Brazilian martial art. Will the superb team that redesigned Sakura and Cody win out, or will it be the Banana Ken/Lion King Gouki/Franken Nash faction?!

I do like to think that after Alex (who?) became playable after appearing in the City in Chaos stage, Sodom and Rolento are now also required to become playable after appearing in the Ring of Justice stage. Then again, he was in there, too: maybe it will be Damnd???

There have been rumors of Rose, Makoto, Oro, Fei Long and Maki but I believe that about as far as I can spit.

But in more concrete news, SF5 is getting a timed demo where all 40 characters are going to be playable. If you've been too cheap to buy anybody outside the base roster now is your chance to see what the rest of the world already knows.

"LAGFEST: Madman Is Missing edition" , posted Mon 3 Aug 11:47post reply

It's season 5, time for:

MMCAFE LAGFEST: Madman Is Missing edition!

Backstory: while typically the shadowy figure Professor H. Moriarty had been the organizing point for global fighting tournaments, the mysterious host has vanished, and certainly not because he hasn't finished FFVIIr yet which is taking up all his hard drive space. In the finest genre traditions, fighters from around the world are gathering to track down his whereabouts, primarily by beating each other up.

How do this weekend or maybe next look for everyone? If it's just the Americas and Asia, I think the evening/morning timing works, but if we've got European fighters, we can flip it so they can join too. What's good for everyone? Here's some ideas:

August 7, 9:00pm+ EST / August 7, 8:00pm+ CST / August 7, 6:00pm+ PST / August 8, 10:00am+ Japan Time
August 8, 9:00pm+ EST / August 8, 8:00pm+ CST / August 8, 6:00pm+ PST / August 9, 10:00am+ Japan Time

Maybe the first new character will even by out then so we can all go to Gill's weird new stage and curse at...Oro?!

I actually haven't finished FFVIIr yet!

I might show up, but I can't promise anything. Currently I have more than one job and a number of dental visits to make up for, all stemming from the fun situation that's been ongoing where necessary services are shut down FOR SOME REASON.

My last SFV quest ended with me unlocking every single pic in the arcade gallery, which made me realize how much I hate Shin Gouki, especially when he is involved in the concept of climbing a time-consuming ladder of opponents just to get ONE chance to beat a stupid OP mind-reading AI with a character I haven't optimized, for a piece of weird fanart. But then after several days struggling with this, the game just handed them to me and said I didn't need to do it. If it was going to do that all along then how about doing it sooner?!

I'm looking forward to new characters, but I've given up on hoping for new stage transitions. I once dreamt that Kanzuki beach had one added where Gouki in his scuba gear was knocked onto a stray inner tube that floated gently out to sea where he could be lost and forgotten.

"Re(3):Dan, Oro, Rose, Akira announced" , posted Thu 6 Aug 04:21post reply

Aghh it's Dan! We'd gotten so close, surviving four straight years without him. At least it's not...Sean!? Bonus that we were spared Elena and Fei Long, but I'm still trying to figure out who thinks Dan is "funny" or "cool" after the SNK joke was already dead and unfunny literally 25 years ago. At least we still have four+ glorious months till he shows up.

I'm importing Iggy's post from the other thread:
quote:
As for Akira, she's the best choice not named KyŰko! She even balances Dan being there!
The timeframe, though... all these leakers are basically dead, no one else was planned after Seth for sure. Ono getting the boot and Covid sure messed things up.
what if it's... King Kobra's return? As a tie-in with SF6?
With second-stringers from Zero like Birdie and Karin somehow taking center stage, we can only hope that Justice Gakuen will one day take over the SFVI roster and purge all the crappy SFIII story elements (and ideally, characters) forever. King Kobra would be the hottest addition since Tiger Jackson to Tekken 3.
quote:

I assume you mean Akira? And the reason you're thinking of our erstwhile master Skullomania is that Akira was initially in a skull-helmeted biker until she takes it off to reveal she's searching for her missing brother Daigo. It was Samus Aran but with less underwear, but that was Hinata's job anyway.

ANYWAY you can all join the lagfest---I'm proof you don't need to be particularly good to be there! Just let us know. Rugal: I'll host and send the invites.

This is the thread we are going to use? Bah, fine.

Anyway, a PlayStation Blog post has more about the characters. An extended video shows that Dan can, in fact, cancel moves with his taunts. Now that he has Break moves Dan has moved on from AoF and is firmly in the Garou series. Hopefully his critical art is a parody of super deadly ninja bees.

More importantly, the blog notes that Oro will no longer have one arm behind his back but will now challenge himself by holding onto a turtle! Will the turtle have DLC costumes? Can I buy the DLC turtle costumes right now?

This is how you make money Capcom! Hire this man!
And also make cute costumes for the turtle. I'll buy all of them
Except the one that will turn the turtle into a cat. Don't even think about it Capcom.

Watching the video, I think that might be Dan's best rendition since SvC Chaos.
Which is... definitely something! Maybe not exactly something positive, but Dan players can't be choosers.

With how some previous characters have had their original look reinvented (if only to sell their previous look as "nostalgia costume", I'm surprised none of those is very different from their original look. I suppose the decision to make them REALLY was last minute, and there was no time to waste in re-designing the wheel?

Rose had a new look in Menat's arcade mode ending

Link Here

We see that the Dan gameplay footage shows him in his SFIV costume.

Who did that promo art? It doesn't look like the style Bengus has been using recently.

I have to say that Dan's animations are looking pretty good so far (his face looks like a WIP, so I can see why they recorded footage off screen). Although he is a joke character he has very grounded kicks, his throws are very technical, even his neutral stance looks like your typical MMA stand up fighter.

For Akira, from what I recall from Rival Schools she kind of fills the Yun/Yang gameplay niche, right? It would be cool if she had an assist V-Skill with Daigo like Mika has with Nadeshiko.

A whole year is gonna be a long wait. I think I will grind survival mode during the free trial on my tertiary PSN account so I can buy the characters with FM as they come out.

"Re(4):Dan, Oro, Rose, Akira announced" , posted Thu 6 Aug 09:07post reply

I'm extremely glad we have a rival schools character, and that the character is not a fireball/DP character!

Akira is definitely one of the coolest characters from the RS series. I don't know how common the name "Daigo" is in Japan, but given that the most well-known SF player is also a Daigo, it would've been amusing if her brother was included for that reason alone. I am also glad to see that the promotional art image of her manages to convey her so well!

Oro with a turtle is a great idea, I guess somebody at Capcom can still come up with solid takes on existing characters that allow for new avenues of amusement. Old man with turtle Okina in Last Blade still gives me nightmares, though!

Even as one of the world's biggest Justice Gakuen fans, I'll freely admit that everyone in the game is basically Ryu with quarter-circle moves, but I suppose Akira can be Yun/Yang since she doesn't have a projectile? Anyway, I just noticed in the Famitsu article but not the English Playstation blog a reference to "recreating a certain something you'll be familiar with that's unique to Justice Gakuen matches," meaning the tag-team move, so god Skullomania willing, we'll have Daigo, "the man among men," in there!

Daigo is a moderately common name, but Akira's brother uses badass kanji that mean "the epitome," right in line with a banchou character who says lines with a straight face like "I'll show you the path a man must tread!" Umehara Daigo's kanji are tragically boring. He should probably change how he writes his name if he wants to be a true Street Fighter.

It's nice to see Oro back, and that's a cute twist on his character. I imagine it's much harder to constantly hide his arm in a fully 3D game :)

That reminds me, I always thought Dan was supposed to be the ultimate loser, but I was reading some trivia about him last month and learned that while he is goofy and looks ridiculous, he's actually considered a competent fighter in the SF world (or at least he used to be, before his joke factor was turned up to eleven), and the only reason why he's not at Ryu's and Ken's levels is because of his lack of discipline.

After Sakura got some nice character progression in SFV, it would be nice if the same happened with Dan. Sure, he should still be goofy and all, but maybe he could realize in his story that he should take his fights more seriously - and in turn, some fighters could acknowledge he isn't the worst opponent they ever had.

I would accept it if Dan ends up fighting Kage and beating him.
If Dan becomes competent and Kage takes his role as the ultimate loser, then their inclusion in SF5 becomes warranted.

Not only with this redeem 25 years of Dan, it would also fit nicely with the surprisingly cute and good-hearted writing for the individual story modes if Dan beats Kage and we learn that "hate is the ultimate loser!"

Yeah, if I'm not mistaken, she was in charge of the art in New Generation. She also did the artwork for the Capcom Groove versions of each fighter in Capcom vs SNK.

"Madman Times: Laggy Edition - get yer copy" , posted Sat 8 Aug 14:25:post reply

Thanks for the fun matches, everyone! While it took the staff photographer a while to get the screenshots working on his new computer, the Madman Times has still managed to get to print. READ ALL ABOUT IT:

As usual, Rugal descended from the heavens to show us how it's done, with many of the usual types of tragicomic results. One of the most uplifting upsides to these pummelings is that they can finally give the poor, unloved (by Capcom) Fang his long-deserved place in the sun.

Certainly, contestants can look pretty shocked when they manage to survive. A heroic Warzard denizen attempted to take down MMC's toughest boss when he took the form of a very large man intruding in the MMC Dojo but the loss of the costume's lion head proved fatal. In the biggest upset of the night, it was hapless Ed, of all people, who managed to pull off a major victory.

In other news, while Sexy Seth is probably limited somewhat by his questionable source material, he/she/? does look better in a hat.

In a shocking twist, a mysterious BUTTERMONSTER named Juan appeared later, but the biggest surprise of the night was that AbiGAAAAIL and Chun Li got married! Then again, these unions don't always go as smoothly as originally planned.

And now, the weather: while there is always the possibility of relaxing at the pool or even the sento if Honda doesn't yell at you, in these hot summer days, monsters and men alike all mostly just want to head to the beach.

Sorry, I tried. Technically I almost made it because I was in around 9PM, but then I realized it was 9PM EDT which was 3 hours earlier, something that I had not properly absorbed. It didn't really matter since around that time I was stuck with work anyway, but had I known I might have taken a short break to check in.

Might as well comment on the new characters while I'm here.

Dan, wow. I actually did not expect that. I wonder if his story in SFV will be that he closed up his dojo to run a costume shop with his sister. What's really interesting to me about this inclusion is that traditionally, Dan has been purposefully undertuned with stubby normals and weak projectiles. But SFV is a game where everyone has stubby normals and weak projectiles, so maybe this could be his big chance?

Rose and Oro are a bit more expected, but it'll be nice seeing Oro again after all this time. When I think about it, he should be real easy to translate into the SFV system since two of his original Super Arts were like V-Triggers anyway. As for Rose, I'm not a fan of the purple raincoat in Menat's ending but I don't know if she's going to be using that design or not, given the artwork shown was just her regular outfit.

And Akira! When I asked for Akira on Twitter a couple of months ago I did not think I would get her this soon, but why look a gift horse in the mouth? They also mentioned that her stage would have a special gimmick, interesting...

Thanks Ono-san for not only bringing back Street Fighter over a decade ago, but also reviving the fighting game genre.

I know Ono has gotten some hate over the last couple of years, mostly concerning SFV, but you still gotta give him his props for the hard work he did for Capcom. Who knows, without his involvement, whether the SF series would have seen the light of day a lot later than when it did.

I presume the gimmick being that there will be cameos from most of the Rival Schools crew. I am already wondering if the stage will be the Seijyun (sp?) Girls Courtyard stage from the second Rival Schools? Only time will tell.

The wait for these characters is going to be torture. But I know they will be worth it. I'm so happy Rose is back again! She deserves her spot in this game. I'm also excited at the possibilities of Arika! Oro and Dan I'm meh about. Especially Dan, since I feel another more worthy character should have gotten his slot. Makes me wonder who the 5th character will be. Everyone is presuming it will be a male character, giving the number of costumes the character is getting.

Now that I think about it, I'm not certain what a Rival Schools themed stage would look like in SF5. The stages in the Gakuen series were colorful enough and fit the game but they were, by and large, generic anime school settings. What is going to make the stage unique?

Because the fight happens in a school, all the sleazy costumes are banned and the characters can only select appropriate outfits for children.
Also if you try to select Urien there the police swats your place and arrest you for having an exhibitionist trying to traumatise children.
