    Perhaps I should pick up RoA. I am a big fan of beetle-mania monsters.

    I need something to cleanse the salt of having TWO MK characters at minimum in my I2 DLC :'(



    Sub-Zero, Starfire, and Jason Todd. Then in the 6 silhouettes they made Black Manta and smelly Raiden obvious.

    Wake me when they announce a cool guest character, like Marshal "Moo" Montana from Wild West C.O.W. Boys of Moo Mesa

    We gonna be hanging at Dickens on the 21st for anyone that wants to come. Playing i2 and streaming Toryuken, and drinking 'course. It's a long weekend baybeeee

    And anyone who wants to come down with SFV (*shudder*)/GG/RoA etc should too!

    Sucks I'm missing that, but I'll be at toryuken so better have couple beers for me.

    I'll be gone launch week but once I'm back I'm down to meet up weekly/biweekly to get something going.

    Sub zero being in is also ass. I'm calling clone is his trait haha.
  • MisguidedAngelMisguidedAngel Greetings, mortal! Joined: Posts: 5,214
    Hahaha I was thinking exactly that. Clone is gonna need a rework from MK... otherwise he'll 10-0 Bane ;).

    I was kinda thinking trait might be ice armour, which he could use as a kind of resource. One option could be expending the armour to give him a clone. At least then he wouldn't be spamming them.
  • bipolarexxpressbipolarexxpress Joined: Posts: 41
    I think clone would be a top tool in an igau game. Shit would be crazy.

    I'm actually diving into swamp thing first. Spend some time the last few weeks looking at his breakdown/belt matches and he's got some pretty crazy stuff. I'm gonna have bane as my secondary, since I still have the legacy feel with him and take it from there.
  • bipolarexxpressbipolarexxpress Joined: Posts: 41
    Plus. It's swamp thing. Coolness factor is definitely there haha
  • MisguidedAngelMisguidedAngel Greetings, mortal! Joined: Posts: 5,214
    I think that's a wise choice. The amount of self-healing Swamp Thing can do seems absolutely nutters.

    I'll probably be doing the same but I think Bane is actually gonna have a real hard time this go-around... like... what's he going to do against Firestorm?

    So apparently that new character Ed in SF5 has none of those scary fiendish "inputs" that you have to be a 6 time Evo champion to do even once.

    The only thing that requines an input is his super, all his other special moves are doable as command normals. He is in essence a fantasy strike character. Yeah Capcom, dumbing down the game will get more people to play it. Not improving anything about it like the netcode or the gameplay.

    Welcome to MvCI Beta: the character ;)
  • InfilInfil una catástrofe con una pelota de beisbol Joined: Posts: 8,629
    i don't think making a character based on command normals/button releases is inherently wrong, it's an odd choice but it's not immediately the death of execution as we know it

    sfv already has virtually no execution so that decision was made long before ed was released, but even in a game with lots of execution, it's possible to make a character like this i think

    The problem is, execution serves a purpose in the meta. There should be a chance that the player should be able to flub their inputs. Simple inputs for special moves drastically reduce the chances of that happening.

    If Ed ends up being a strong rushdown character and gets even mid tier or higher, this game's meta is as good as dead.

    eh, nobody really ever flubs simple quarter circles in neutral. dp motions yes, but almost never quarter circles. mid-combo there is more chance of flubbing, but combos are easy enough in sfv already, whether you use complicated motions or not

    if you're talking about reaction time, then that is more of a concern than flubbing inputs, but a smart designer could account for that if they really wanted an ed-like character

    i am talking about the general idea of using ed-like motions in a game, and how it is not automatically a bad idea if done well. i am not making any statement about how well capcom will do it

    It can work if the game is designed around it but with this it just seems like they're throwing a lit match into a dynamite storage container. The game's meta is already strained and they're throwing in a character who has the advantage of not having inputs over characters that do have them. If he ends up being mid tier or higher then it'll be a disaster.

    Which is good because I want SF5 to die already.

    i mean, is any mid tier character ever a "disaster" for any fighting game?

    also, if sf5 dies the fgc as a whole suffers a lot, it has been proven time and time again that there is no fgc without street fighter, many many players simply do not play or care about other games

    Main issue: Depends how good his AA is. Without a motion it's ez to auto-correct and stop cross-up attempts.

    But auto-correcting your DP in SF4 wasn't hard either so meh...

    SO MUCH CONTENT. And there's a pro-circuit now. Every tourney between now and the finals has a 20k pot bonus minimum. Pretty nuts.

    Good. I hope this happens. The FGC can have a small community of dedicated and passionate fighting game players over a large community of stupid hyperconsumer Street Fighter babbies with no standards who gush over the most mediocre game in the genre simply because it has the most merchandise. This is what the FGC needs.

    Street Fighter has sucked absolute ass since vanilla SF4, all passion and creativity has been forcefully removed from the series by Ono, and now it just exists as a nostalgia-fueled vehicle to sell joysticks, monitors and energy drinks to people who don't know any better.

    the good ol' FG dark ages, when the genre was booming with creative and passionate titles, and maybe you knew one other person who played

    Implying that this isn't an FG dark age where the only game people apparently flock over is a rushed, incomplete mess. Oh wait, that's not happening either. SF5 sold horribly and is probably going to go free to play after Evo.

    Even if you don't care for the big budget games there are lots of indie devs like me making fighting games now you know. You have options now, you don't have to eat bread crumbs anymore.

    This 20 second arcade ladder ending for Cold actually makes me tear up with how well they nailed my favourite villain. Game is a love letter to DC fans.



    Flash has best rogues gallery. And C. Thomas Howell has such a great voice.

    edit: I learned to time-stamp. I'm very clever ;).

    Dear god.

    You can play as your OC in Sonic Forces.

    Pandora's Box has been opened. There is no going back now.

    No regrets, Sonic.

    Classic Sonic is just the name given to Sonic before his Dreamcast-era redesign.

    When they redesigned him for Sonic Adventure they gave him longer arms and legs, green irises around his pupils, and weird gold buckles on his shoes.

    Classic:

    Modern:

    Unless you're asking "how are they different in the story", in which case, they're not. It's just some time travel shit where Sonic's younger self gets pulled out of the past into the future.

    Game actually looks and performs way better on PS4 Pro. I'm glad I bought one just for this game haha. Who you think you'll main? We'll be at Dickens Sunday if you're in Calgs.

    Rumour is PC version will be around the end of summer :(.

    Well... he's forcing me to learn Injustice lol. Which I sure never had to do with Bane. Won't be winning anything any time soon haha.

    I'm surprised. There's barely any footage of him, and I've never ran into one online in hundreds of games. Not one haha. You'll have to give me their secrets! Nothing at NLBC or WNF and want as much high level Cold play as possible. He's too perfect to give up on!

    His neutral is meh (and the one normal he has for it has a gap), and he doesn't give the opponent much reason to come to him... and he has no throw range but he's sooo much fun. And his vortex is SSS tier. Just gotta learn every match in depth and get the muscle memory down.

    Are you using Swampy this weekend or riding the Bane-train? What do you think of him?

    When I see Deadshot I just switch to Supergirl at character select haha. I really wish the gear abilities were in tournament mode, and they just let you pick 2 of them, like you would a variation in MKX or assists in a marvel game. Then this deadshot business wouldn't be such a big deal.

    I am also hoping Starfire is a grappler with air mobility ;). Cold jumps with just a prayer every time...

    I'm in town indefinitely now Andrew!
    Dunno if i'll go to Dickens on Sunday though.
    Maining Harley Quinn, she's fun.
    End of Summer isn't bad. Hopefully it has a better launch than MKX did lol

    A guy in mtl plays cold so I've learned a couple things I can show you haha. Been playing almost 100% swamp which has been pretty rough. Dead shot may be the most nonsense match up I've ever played lol. Kinda struggles against high pressure as well. Gonna take a long time to figure out.
  • bipolarexxpressbipolarexxpress Joined: Posts: 41
    That feel when your pool was fine then you get thrown in with everyone you've played the last week straight

    Then you should know the match ups ;). Good luck tomorrow. People sleeping on Swampy. Mid tier worst when the game advances ( and deadshot becomes dust

    This game makes me so happy. But it would make me much happier if my Cold could air dash and make ice platforms to teabag from ;)

    Hopefully, he has a lot of weaknesses currently. Thanks man, hopefully I don't get dive kicked for 60%. If I'm knocked out early in gonna fly back and go to Dickens lol
