    I hope the netcode is fixed. Hear loads of people complaining about slow-mo matches and have been overpowered with them. Such a shame that in 2016 people can't get stable connection worldwide.

    it's probably going to be better, even though the reviews for the online have been pretty good

    Goodbye those baseless rumor about the new Samsho

    P/S: I noticed this in the last interview but what did they mean by "not having the environment to do 3D graphics"?

    As in they didn't have the tech and staff in place to make games in 3D, especially console level.

    So they had to build the team and engine from scratch pretty much.

    So it went from "OMG, Good netcode!" to "OMG this netcode sucks"

    Which is true?

    Someone people suspect the game has sync issues. As in, one player will experience a flawless match while the other is playing in bullet time. I've heard that the netcode itself has potential to be great, but SNK has a bit of work to do in order to make it consistent.

    In other words, needs more patches

    Fffffffff godamn patch, I was almost done but now I'll have to re-do a lot of sections in the guide video <___>
    i don't like the idea of having footage of old jumps and walkspeeds when it's supposed to show you how to play the current game..
    It's also dumb that there's no patch notes or nothing of the sort, i get that we werent supposed to play the game before the "day 1 patch" but shit let me know what changed at least.

    I feel like little to no patch notes is a Japanese thing. They want you to play the game and discover things on your own rather than being told (?). Hell, when a new balance update for Smash comes out, they're not even told about it lol

    With some luck there will be a couple of local players willing to actually play XIV, if only for a few weeks.

    Not sure who I'll be picking. Benimaru and Iori are very likely to end up on my team, but I'm uncertain about the 3rd character. Currently leaning on "whoever has the most retarded fireball-game", or maybe Leona. But who knows.
    Edit: kinda ironic considering how this game was supposed to tone KoF down for new players to get into.

    There are very, very few post-SF4 fighting games where the developer hasn't said something similar to that about their game, and it turned out completely wrong. Fuck, SF4 itself was probably the worst offender there.

    It's a full on day 1 balance patch, they don't have to detail it tbh in this case because what was playable before this were numerous old builds and a demo.

    With the patch it's basically the first legit full version of the game.

    lol yep i feel for Ryo and Butt with that one...

    Im a bit confused about the general ending
    36 characters that have died during the kof sagas have been resurrected? how da hell can ash come back he was written out of existence with no one remembering him (except maybe elizabeth???!) Is this gonna be a big retcon?

    Pretty sure it's a misunderstanding somehow going around that 36 people were resurrected... watch the Ikari ending, it says "36 hours since people were resurrected"
    About Ash we don't know yet. Nakoruru suggests the existence of Verse was caused by mishaps in time and space, maybe because of the ending of XIII

    That's what I took away from it. Seems Ryo was left behind even though he became dojo master. Weird turn of events, but it fits with the quirky slice-of-life style this team's story is known for.

    Anyway, Marco for XV!

    I'd like a Robert/King/Butt team.

    But for what it looks like, maybe we can have a new Garou Team instead: Jenet, Gato and Butt. Butt could replace Tizoc as the powerhouse character, now that the wrestler has become King of Dinosaurs and I don't think he will resume his good path anytime soon.

    I'm trying to generate interest on a local level, but so far the response has been "DOSE GRAPHICS ADKJAKJSHADSFHSJKLDA :dizzy: "

    It looks like I'll have to be content playing with the 2002/13 old farts in my area, as usual.

    So LMGTS (Let Me Get This Straight), in this game, some Team's cutscenes becomes limited, only focus on a certain team which plays a major roles in this games (Japan Team, China Team, Official Invitation Team & Another World Team. I dunno if Fatal Fury Team is part of this, despite only make a supporting appearance on China Team story)



    Any ideas why?

    because quality CGI is expensive... and to remind everyone who's going to be important enough to be in the next game

    I guess they only let the "story-important" teams have CGI. I still would've liked to see South America and South Town cutscenes, but they'll probably be more relevant later in this arc.

    Money and time no doubt played a factor. There was a discussion about this same topic for KOF XIII much earlier in this thread (in the first hundred pages), and the general feeling is that SNK's vision often exceeds their resources. It worked out a lot better this time around in XIV, but it's clear that corners were still cut. I would not mind some DLC that rounds out the story in this game before moving on to XV.

    Reading that interview with Oda and the rest of the team makes it clear that the game turning out as well as it did is nothing short of a small miracle. It could have just as easily turned into a debacle of Mighty No. 9 proportions.
