    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?

    Shin Hisako looks awful goofy with that stance and the bottom half of her naginata erased.

    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.

    Maybe it's time to change that sig. Pretty sure no one's interested in a Makoto guidebook anymore

    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

    it's one of the prettiest, most comprehensive pieces of (free) content ever produced for the fgc, the game it's for doesn't really matter

    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)
