    There's a gazillion issues.

    You'd have to be mighty silly to buy one now. There's pretty much literally no reason to.

    Yeah, Switches are bricking left and right apparently. If you're considering getting one it might be prudent to wait for a revision. Probaby around Autumn or Christmas.

    It's the 360's RROD fiasco all over again.

    Uh oh

    That means it has a Stalfos that tells you're a disgusting monster who's going to hell for killing all the other stalfos in the game. You, the player, in a very serious and dark fourth wall breaking scene. WooOOOooo scary he knows he's in a game and he's judging you!!!!!!! You were the real monster the whole time Morty!!!!

    A lot of talk lately about SFV needing a new core mechanic. (Particularly a defensive one)

    It is super lacking compared to others games. Injustice 2 has air tech, pushblock, universal armour (like a focus attack that costs meter), invincible wake ups, clash, kof rolls that cost bar, and a bunch of character trait specific defensive mechanics... SFV has v-reversal and mash jab annnd... a few characters who can spend meter for invincible reversal/wakeup...

    What kind of mechanic would you guys imagine making SFV a better game? Parries for all?

    Part 2oooo. The hilariously cheesy voice acting at the beginning makes me lol for reals ;).

    Captain Cold, Zoom, Green Arrow and Lantern all here... so everyone from the leak has been officially revealed now except for 3 characters. And there's another reveal Monday... and a book confirmed Red Hood the other day too. Must be a few more characters that weren't in the mobile version and didn't leak.

    FIRESTORM



    Broke down Cheetah and Swamp Thing today too. Cheetah has King grapples where she has to guess if you're ducking or standing but does 50+% damage off of them eeee. And dive kick and command jump and a bunch of overhead/low normals that don't combo.

    Swamp Thing is Astaroth but can level 3 dormammu you and make it so you can't jump or dash for guaranteed full screen command grabs.

    SPOOOOGE

    Also there are patch notes for SFV. Rip.

    Ooo cheetah has three different jump arcs like a KoF character

    I gotta spooge for a bit over how cool the combo system is in I2. Past NRS games haven't given you much reason to go beyond the standard 1 mid screen and 1 corner combo that you end in either damage or reset/restand. The addition of air tech adds sooo much.

    I didn't think air tech would be such a cool addition before I played. You can tech out of juggles like Skullgirls or BB. If the enemy knows you're gonna tech they can punish you if they guess the direction.

    Or you can just keep the combos grounded and short and do less damage but they can't tech.

    Most characters highest damage combos include a wall bounce, but you might not want to bounce them off the wall on the other side of the screen because if they tech out way over there you can't punish them for it. But wallbounces are unclashable on the opponents second life bar so you're gonna want to use them...

    Plus gotta change your combos up depending on stage positioning, not just because of the corner but all interactables. And where Swamp Thing walks he leaves a garden where the opponent can't jump or dash if they're in it, so you'll want to sacrifice damage in your combos to swap sides with the opponent.

    Gotta think so much about which combo to use depending on a lot of situations.

    SO SMART

    Play Shadowverse, Derryk.

    It's like Hearthstone but all the terrible RNG stuff is gone.

    haven't played HS since my warrior pirate deck won 8.5/10 by playing any card in hand and attacking nothing but face lol.
    once the new expansion drops I'll probably give it another go. that game looks way too animu 5 me.

    i tells ya though, the dark ages have allowed me to play a ton of games i missed out on while locked into fighting games.
    far cry's, boderland's, grand theft auto 5, conan exiles, x-com's... shit's aight mang!

    It's definitely an amazing year for games and non-sf FG fans. Like... best in memory. Probably since like 1998.

    RE7 is now easily in my top 10 games of all time.

    But now I'm addicted to Shadowverse. Legit the best TCG I've ever played. (But if you care about card art I understand how it's not for everyone)

    But it's the most well done f2p model I have ever seen. At no point do I feel like I have to spend real money. I played for a day and now have the toppest top tier deck my faction can make without spending a dime. It's everything I had a problem with in Hearthstone fixed.

    I was dying for a competitive fix while waiting for I2, and I found it (fuck team games)

    Rivals of Aether is out of Early Access and has officially launched. It's incredibly fun. If you like Smash you should give this one a look.

    And Robert Englund (THE Freddy Krueger) voicing Scarecrow is money.

    He's legit my favourite villain.

    But a big part of his charm and uniqueness in the comics comes from how "lame" he is and he's portrayed that way in the comics and cartoons as well haha. He's Flash's main villain but I wouldn't say arch villain, because they have a working relationship and partner up as much as they fight. Cold and his rogues even have a "no kill" rule like Batman ;).

    They seem to have captured his personality perfect here. Blue collar showboat and went full on and embraced the goofiness. I'm so happy. Like... so happy that I wish all people could experience my happiness. Witnessing their favourite comic character brought to life in their favourite hobby medium. Certainly never thought I'd see CC in an FG.

    He's a fairly big name now though because he's a lead character in a few of the live action CW shows, played by the Prison Break guy. (The Rogues will also be the villains in The Flash movie)

    Looks like he has the exact same personality as the rest of the cast.

    Every time a new Injustice character is revealed you spin the roulette. It's always one of four possible choices:

    -A big guy who talks "brutally"
    -A super serious guy who talks all grimdark and focused
    -A snarky, cocky douchebag
    -A girl who hates men and thinks they're all inferior

    This looks awesome and I wish it was real. It's just an April Fool's prank by Arika but it looks miles better than every fighting game that's out or coming out.

    Yeah it's a playable build. They wouldn't put together something that expensive as merely an April fools. Must be at least a tech demo and to gauge interest.

    Virtual On is also coming back, and Eternal Champions maybe.

    Long live the 90's.

    To be fair, the ice chick from Overwatch was ripping off Captain Cold (even on these forums, the day she was announced, I said they added Captain Cold to Overwatch haha). But yeah, he has literally all of Mei's move-set, plus Mega Man's ice platforms. Not even trying to hide it ;).

    2 types of walls - 1 is projectile invincible and he can kick it at you, and the others are discount Aganos walls that can be shattered but placed anywhere and can have multiple walls on the screen at once.

    He has zero moves in common with Sub-Zero so I dunno what you're talking about. It's like saying Kolin is Sub-Zero with a hat.

    Yeah, I love the Bane changes. There will actually be a sense of venom management now (That level 3 debuff is insanely harsh). And removing his "safe" DP with meter burn was a great idea. And presumably he lost his safe advancing overhead special. With his great normals and crazy fast new walk speed and dashes, we'll have a chance to use his non-special moves finally haha. I'm excited to actually get to use my brain a bit with Bane now ;).

    I hope Ring Toss has a use now. They didn't use it once on stream.

    BTW on release week as many people as possible are welcome at my place and can even stay nights haha. Can fit like 5 set ups.

    He's Dhalsim with a command grab, and a fear meter? But he can only build fear meter with close range attacks that use his gas.

    Think you'll play Swamp Thing or Grodd as well?

    I really want to pick Scarecrow up but generally I don't like characters with bad walk-speed and his looks atrocious lol.

    I have a feeling they hinted today that GL is going to be kinda like the Triborg of this game... maybe that's how Sinestro will return. (They giggled like school girls when asked if different skins would change the colour of the constructs)

    And he's voiced by Freddy Krueger so he gets cool points for that.

    Yea I actually reaaaallly liked Swamp Thing. Grodd seems awesome as well but probably narrowing to Bane and Swamp. Who are you looking at so far?
