    Would be nice but I'm not hopeful.

    Then again maybe the reason they didn't talk about Smash Switch was because they're going to have substantially more content... although if there's going to be a Konami rep, personally I'd rather have Goemon or Sparkster.

    if USF2 is exclusive i'm gonna be mad
    PC / PS4 plz

    who the fuck is gonna make a nintendo switch arcade stick lol
    also, HDR was sick andrew. it's no ST arcade, but it does the trick if you wanna play some old school in a pinch.

    one more thing. is USF2 gonna be TURBO or is it just going to be super street fighter 2 with EK / ER added in?
    .... because pre-turbo old school was fucking sloooooow

    Hori is making a stick for the Switch. Ain't no one gonna buy that though.

    USF2 has throw techs. RIP Blanka. Bottom tier confirmed.

    Nintendo stocks bombed after that reveal. At launch it's basically a 500 dollar Zelda machine.

    The actual important news is INJUSTICE 2 STORY MODE REVEAL ON THE 17TH. Which means a bunch of character reveals mmmm (and a look at the rest of the updated faces on character models lol)

    Darkseid confirmed as the pre-order bonus for I2, like Goro was for MKX. Was hoping they wouldn't do that again but I guess it worked well before. Lousy WB.

    Wonder how his Omega beams will work? Homing or will they be controlled like a game of Snake ;).

    I should be happy about this but:

    -They're using the fugly HDR graphics

    -They've actually slowed down the game

    -They got rid of the HDR changes but are making some balance changes of their own which I'm sure will be awful.

    -It's a Switch exclusive

    You forgot about the fact they replaced all the sound with SF4 sound bytes.

    We already know the new balance changes are awful because SF4 style throw techs now ;).

    You can replace the fugly HDR graphics at least... and maybe that means the sound too.

    Seems they're just trying to cash in on nostalgia for the SNES version

    Except there's never been a Snes version of ST.

    I don't think they're basing it on ST. It seems to be based on SSF2

    They have supers and are using HDR sprites and have the ST portraits. Pretty sure it's ST.

    They're just alluding to Snes because that's what most people remember.

    i'd be really surprised if it was a switch exclusive, my bet is it comes out on everything

    but yeah the game looks very slow and i really hope you can turn off the sf4 sound bytes. the new announcer is terrible too :(

    Also, The Injustice 2 roster got leaked by someone who works on the mobile game. It is as follows:

    1. Joker
    2. Bane
    3. Poison Ivy
    4. Swamp Thing
    5. Black Canary
    6. Catwoman
    7. Cyborg
    8. Hal Jordan
    9. John Stewart
    10. Cheetah
    11. Firestorm
    12. Flash
    13. Scarecrow
    14. Green Arrow
    15. Captain Cold
    16. Brainiac
    17. Damian Wayne
    18. Black Adam
    19. Doctor Fate
    20. Power Girl
    21. Zoom
    22. Mr. Freeze

    Some of these characters are "unlocked" by getting gear for other characters (John, Freeze, Power Girl, etc). And Darkseid as pre-order bonus. Plus already announced Superman, Aquaman, Batman, Grodd, Atrocitus, Deadshot, Harley, Supergirl, Wonderwoman and Blue Beetle. Decent launch roster.

    I really, really wasn't expecting Bane to come back. I'm pretty sad. He's my fave grappler design in all FGs, but I wanted an excuse to learn a new character..

    No Giganta at launch, Josh... sniff :(.

    How you gonna choose, now Jimmy!? And Bipolar gets his main back.

    Bane,Captain Cold, Black Canary, Zoom, Brainiac, Grodd... how will I pick a main!?

    (This leak is like 99% real because it was revealed a month ago on some no where thread for 4 other people, by a guy who allegedly is working on the mobile version. He predicted all the characters announced today, including the fact that Brainiac is the main villain)

    swamp thing's & mr. sub zero are mine
    dark seid too since i mained doomsday in the last title.

    WB must have a serious fear of PC games ever since they flopped that batman game a few years back. too bad.

    Oh God. Bane is back. The dream is real
  • bipolarexxpressbipolarexxpress Joined: Posts: 41
    Also, Brainiac looks awesome. I'm gonna give him a fair look but let's be honest, need more venom.

    It'll come to PC eventually. I assume that's why they fixed MKXL on PC.

    I'll find someone other than Bane... can't have two people maining the same lol

    But Captain Cooooooold

    Season pass is 9(!) DLC characters... and special edition comes with the Zoom, Power Girl, John Stewart skins

    (Further proving the month old leak true)
  • bipolarexxpressbipolarexxpress Joined: Posts: 41
    Well basically if there are big grappler types I'll be checking all of them out. But of course I'll be defaulting to Bane if no one catches my interest. Oh man, that's gonna be amazing if that's true. A seriously good/large roster. If the online is MKX level then there is some massive potential.

    Can't wait for I2! I've been playing I1 for the last few months

    I've been wanting to brush up on my Bane but it's impossible to find a playable game online with the PS4 version.

    Maybe... there's at least 9 more characters we don't know about lol. I bet I can guess 6 of them though... Spawn, Hellboy, Sub-Zero, Booster Gold, Beast Boy and Starfire. That's how they're gonna make the cash-money. See how wrong I am in a year.

    Edit: lets go for seven... Black Manta

    We gonna go for the full 9 boyz. Mera and Plastic Man. If I get half right I win a Coke.

    anyone notice they changed the release date form the 16th to the 19th? I really hope that was a mistake in the trailer, because I booked a few days going off the 16th as the date lol,

    - Edit, never mind, was somehow watching the WBgamesUK trailer, they must be getting it on the 19th lol, phew

    You almost broke my heart...

    This game's roster is hella better than the last one. There's like 6 characters minimum I wanted, instead of... one. Captain Cold is my day 1 for sure though, so you only have to worry about 1 Bane, I guess lol

    I had the opposite experience. Only played for a couple hours, but most matches weren't too bad. Still shit netcode for Injustice 1 though.

Do you want your favourite game to be represented? Please let us know by posting about it, the more demand the more we are interested in making it happen. Smash 64? We've done it before. Guilty Gear? What are you standing up for? Dead or Alive? If you say so. OoT any% races? If you're sure...

    Don't be afraid to suggest anything, we've run all sorts of events before, and are happy to try anything we think might work.


    ******Please remember to bring your own Controller, we cannot promise you that we will have any available for you******

    We are open to side events if people would like to run them, however all options must be approved by us.

    ===Prices===
    Spectating is free

    Venue fee is currently in discussion as the final venue is being decided currently, expect between $10-$20 no more.

    Every event is $10 per player, (meaning $20 per team) with the exclusion of Pokemon and Mystery, those are both $5

    all money collected for each event will go DIRECTLY to the pot for the top placing players.

    ===Location===
    The venue for this event is still being decided! We have a lot to choose from give us a little more time!

    ===Schedule===
    SCHEDULE IS VERY TENTATIVE AND SUBJECT TO CHANGE****
    Current draft based on expectations, most of the games are guaranteed to be on the day they are placed on, but not necessarily the time they are placed on.

    Here is an image version of the schedule: http://i.imgur.com/qnufMV3.png


    THIS EVENT MAY HAVE PRE-REGISTRATION AS WELL AS DOOR ENTRY. WE WILL KEEP YOU UPDATED.

    ===THE RULES===
    Each game's rulesets will follow typical standards for that game as of current date. Any special exceptions will be made here.


    -OUR RULES-

    This is ALL AGES event, and therefore we will not tolerate offensive action, or substance abuse. Any person thought to be abusing this may be kicked out of the event at the discretion of the hosts. (Due to the nature of tournaments however, we advise parents and kids to understand that swearing is a very common reaction in situations of stress, and ask that you bear with this)

    All Brackets are run as double elimination so you have two chances before you are out.

    ATTENDANCE AND PUNCTUALITY - It is both necessary and very important to remain available for your matches. As we are running many events and a tight schedule we will require players to act accordingly. If your name is called for a match and you do not show within the allotted time period *10 mins* we may have to disqualify you, resulting in a forfeit of that round.

    In order to remain true to the punctuality rule, please attempt to inform the bracket operators if you must leave for any reason, and we will try to accommodate (food, emergency etc) as best as we can. We will also be scheduling in a specific break period so that people aren't forced within the venue the entire duration of the event.

    Please try to keep the venue clean and respect others, these are just common manners.


    ===Payout===
    Payouts are determined based on the number of entrants in each event. Typically following a scale of Top 3, or Top 8 if there are enough entrants.


    ===Stream Info===
    Main Stream:


    More to be added potentially

    will be nice to see a newer build of the game, still 4 months out so stuff will change. I'll be looking at walking speeds and what the new mechanics are.

    Too many people focus on if a character is broken or balanced when the game is 4 months out. Thats why I can't stand TYM during these times. They will be worried about Frame data in a pre release build. Idiots.
