Did you know about the release of Guilty Gear Xrd: Revelator?

This game just came out and the site that's supposed to be universal for fighting games has not given a single announcement on it. Every other game has articles on the front page. You wouldn't even know this game came out if it was up to them.

Someone sees Guilty Gear as a threat to Street Fighter V IMO. There's no news on it on other sites as well (like eventhubs). SFV was spit out on every site when it released. All of the things like lupe Fiasco vs Daigo, down to IGN doing silly matches with some other SF players. They don't even have it in the main "coming soon" release area. Something is seriously up.

    GGXrdR being a threat to SFV? Don't be silly.

    And actually, Eventhubs did make an article for GGXrdR's release in North America; eventhubs.com/news/2016/jun/07/guilty-gear-xrd-revelator-now-available-north-america-dizzy-joins-fray/

    I agree. They're most likely doing this because they don't want people to know that Guilty Gear Xrd -Revelator- is superior to it in every way.

    They can pay off/threaten sites, but they can't doing nothing with the players. I'm on a mission for a few days to handle this nonsense.

    Reason we get so much focus on Street Fighter V is because, Street Fighter V content is the one that tends to have the greatest number of readers. While I can't recall the exact numbers right now, I can say that an overwhelming number of our readers on the front page are there just for Street Fighter V content. The game that's second to it isn't even in any way close. More importantly, it isn't even Revelator (it's the King of Fighters XIV).

    So that must explain why KOF XIV won't be playable at EVO this year, because Capcom's scared.

    They probably know that once people see the load amount of characters & content from it, that people will immediately move on over to it & ignore SF V entirely, LOL.

    OR SNK Playmore just decided for some reason not to bring it to Evo. Or they're working to bring it there and haven't ironed out the details with Evo staff.

    Can't assume one without the other without wearing a tin foil hat.

    You know about the existence of Dustloop right? I always just assumed that this site was more focused on Capcom games. Maybe I'm wrong though...

    Yes, Capcom is scared of SNK. Because if there's one thing history's taught us, it's that SNK is a true business juggernaut that always makes wise decisions and KoF XIV has wide mass-market appeal compared to Street Fighter.

    Or maybe, just maybe, Street Fighter is the largest fighting game franchise by a pretty wide margin, whereas anime games are fairly niche by comparison? I love KI and Skullgirls, but you don't see me coming up with conspiracy theories about Nintendo buying the industry as to why they don't get as much coverage as Pokken or Smash. The brands aren't as large.

    Also, I feel this would be the perfect place for some kind of Itagaki hates Tekken joke, but I'm not very funny so I'll leave it to someone else.

    Just like Nintendo, living off of a IP's name won't save them. SRK isn't the only place to get info out, but it is kinda like a meeting-ground. Twitter, Twitch, Facebook etc. can cover some real ground. If they think they're going sweep this under the rug, well I got news for them. I'm just getting started. Trying to stop the progress of a quality product because they couldn't make a complete package themselves WITH financial backing. How pathetic. People can joke about it, but I'm serious. This taking sides action isn't cool at all. I've started with SF and still play it, but it just doesn't break "tradition" and sometimes traditions can get tiring.

    I didn't even know SRK had a front page.

    Anyway, I really don't know why people compare anime dashers to SF. They are different styles of games. You can enjoy both equally.

    Revelator is about 100 times more entertaining to watch than that other Capcom game though.

    ...Or maybe because the game will be released a month after the end of EVO. Just saying.

    Lol the game that's second to it isn't even available yet...would that change if it were, as Revelator is? Not buying this cpnspiracy stuff, just playing devil's advocate.

    What I said was based on numbers for May, where Revelator was also still unreleased. IMO, this has more to do with SNK's heavy marketing push with KoFXIV where they've been bringing the game out to everywhere they can while providing trailers almost every week.

    This is why twitter is the best place for fighting game news. SRK/eventhubs and what not are more focused on the number of hits an article gets.

    Make a twitter account, it's easy and just follow all the games/people you're interested in. Being 100% real, SRK/eventhubs are not good places for general fighting game news.

    As far as I'm concerned...some shady crap like that shouldn't even be necessary since of course... not xbox or Pc release has been confirmed...
    cuz that's the game changer...

    How many arc system games have been confirmed for steam?...a lot...
    It would be in their best interest...to put that title on as many platforms as possible...
    Cuz it's in the same boat as killer instinct...

    The people on Dustloop are already there for a reason. You'll be hard-pressed to find a gamer on that site who didn't know about Revelator. Besides that, SRK is home of the event called Evolution. Where there will be various games played and Revelator is one of them. Strange it's release slipped by SRK, but Cosplayers and Pokken are making headlines. You get one GG article for every 25 of SFV's. We already know Revelator, MKXL and KI will be placed far away from SFV on the Evo line-up list for top 16-8. Those battle plans are already in the works. I can't wait to see the schedule.

    I'm... I'm honestly struck dumb. A big ol' bag of hot, wet, sticky dumb just smacked me right in the face like some giant's ballsack on a humid summer day by the ocean. Did you miss the sarcasm? Do I need to call professor Frink and see if he can whip you up a detector?

    Capcom doesn't need to bury Revelator or KoF. Those are niche releases in an already niche genre. I don't have the numbers right in front of me, but I think X Tekken sold better than both Xrd and KoF XIII, and that game sucked ass. Not to mention that Capcom seems to still have a cordial relationship with SNK as evidenced by them teasing CvS3. Nobody's touching Street Fighter, and it would only harm Capcom at this point to pull some shady shit in order to monopolize the tiny fighting game market. It's just the nature of the media. The content in demand is the content that gets pushed.

    You are talking about one company that has spent the better part of a decade pushing high-res assets for fucking pachinko machines, and another that's basically just pushed other people's anime IPs since the PS2 era. And I'm saying that as someone who considers both Garou and XX to be some of the best fighting games ever released. Unfortunately, the companies behind them are kind of ass on the business side of things, even compared to Capcom.

    I'm still wondering how someone can believe that Capcom needs to hide news about games that have third party publishers.
