    i'm hoping they change the UI for the health bars and stuff, popping up a damage number accurate to 2 decimal places in bright yellow under an ugly red health bar is maybe the worst in-game UI i've seen for a modern fighting game

    it seems like a weird thing to not have finalized by the first beta, though, so it's possible it won't change. the original health bars for inj1 looked way better

    I notice they don't display character names on the health bars in online matches, which is annoying. How is an outside spectator supposed to tell who's who?

    Also makes no sense.

    MKX has that incredible and minimalist UI... and then there's this?

    I mean, this is the first NRS game where characters have different health values from one another so I get that they can't use percentages anymore, but ain't no body knows what those decimals mean in the middle of a fight.

    They have said the beta is an old build of the game... so who knows.

    Edit: wow. There's already another character reveal on Tuesday. The launch roster must be around 40 characters mmmm. And then DLC will put the roster about as big as UMvC or SFxT. So it'll be interesting, to say the least, to see how the balance works out ;) (But the balance in the beta is excellent so far, but it is only 5 characters...

    Well except Blue Beetle who gets str8 rekt by Superman. He has the same issue as Wesker where he can't deal with the opposing top corner of the screen)

    Deadshot's zoning looks like sooo much fun. Best part will be all the hate-mail he gets me. Definitely gonna play him as a secondary. (this isn't good gameplay footage or anything but get to see some of the moves)

    And another character coming to beta wuu

    They're not as cool as I thought they'd be.

    Wow. Black Canary coming to beta already. Still not a god damn grappler... where's my gorilla.

    And ranked automatically turns stats from gear off wuuu. But they deliberately left out the new moves gear gives you when talking about it. So I guess the game will have "creat-a-variation" for competitive.

    Garbage

    Just put in every boring side story character before putting in returning favorites. Thanks Capcom

    new characters might be cool, maybe they will try some new gameplay ideas they couldn't shoehorn into a returning character

    New gameplay ideas like a lanky flying Inspector Gadget character that shoots poison, looks terrible from the moment you see him, and ends up bottom tier as predicted.

    Sorry but I don't trust modern Capcom to be competent at making anything new. The newcomers we got in SF5 are proof positive of that. The most I can hope for is for them to not completely butcher returning characters which isn't going to happen anyways since there won't be any for at least another year

    SWAMP THING EEEE



    I would also like to point out how many people think the leak list is fake even though it's 10 for 10 now.

    Holy fuck he looks incredible.

    TAKE ALL MY MONEY. PLS.

    Best animations NRS has ever done. Probably because it's harder to destroy them with mocap on a giant plant monster ;)

    Ivy looks great in motion. 10/10 would fap. (Except for the janky j2 they gave her from Joker ;)... Superman and Batman look jankier than most too. But if some recycled animations from the first game means we get 50+ characters, I approve! They've already officially revealed 23 characters and the game is 3 months out)

    There's only 2 more new characters left on the leak list that haven't been officially revealed, Captain Cold and Doctor Fate, and the next character gets announced next week again. They must have so many more characters coming than were leaked.

    MK2 most rewarding uppercuts in FG history ;). They've just never felt as good since the 2d games.

    Injustice doesn't really have em. That Flash one is just an ender to his throw. But D2 is universal AA in I2 it seems. They do no damage but generally launch.

    had a good 2 weeks off work, played much Beta after finally getting a code, was good times. Not much new around here I see lol.

    When did Calgary SRK die? is it when people decided they didn't like SFV? I feel like I missed something here while I was away being a father lol
  • PSYCH0J0SHPSYCH0J0SH Joined: Posts: 4,982
    Everyone moved to something called a whatsapp, apparently.

    But yes, SF5 shitting the bed extremely hard also had something to do with it.

    at this point it's pretty much a battle for last man standing around here.
    there was a big SF2 tournament for SNES @ Video Game Trader today.
    couldn't make it, but apparently Greg and Mark (kegosaurus) took 1st and 2nd place out of a 32 man bracket. crazy it was that big!

    andrew did guy from r/calgary get ahold of you? i pointed him here and told him to seek out you and potato for local MK games

    Oh yeah, he did! Thanks for reminding me lol. Been super busy and need to answer him.

    Fighting games aren't even talked about in the whatsapp so ain't missing anything there.

    Just remember guys... 2 and a half months ;)! It's looking like we'll have a consistent 10ish of us minimum for I2. Plus I made a Facebook page for it with no graphics or even words yet and it already has people following it who I don't know ha. I'll get around to finishing it soon.

    yah wasn't able to make it, VGT has been doing good things since the new owners took over, they did a Mario Kart one not long ago across different platforms, I missed that too, but sounded super fun,

    Saw the pics of Gurg and Mark on the facebook for the win, looked like fun.

    After looking into it, I think Bomberman has a high likelihood of making it into Smash Switch.

    They seem keen on rebooting him as he's getting two new games, one of which is a Switch launch title. I'm willing to bet Nintendo is talking to them about it.
  • MisguidedAngelMisguidedAngel Greetings, mortal! Joined: Posts: 5,194
    I would bet money on it. And I am in a backwards way... because when that happens is when I will have to give Nintendo my money for a Switch ;).

    He's been the character I've wanted most since melee and rumours of guests in that game.
