    Gamora looks fucking lit but Marvel doesn't

    This is legitimately one of if not the only time I've ever held back buying a game due to it's presentation. I can just not support Capcom with how bad the UI and character models look.
    Same here. While I know the art style isn't everyone's cup of tea I'm genuinely curious how the budget for Skullgirls compared to the budget for MvC:I.
  • Re: The Street Fighter 5 General: The Wisest Thoth

    And damn the game is incredibly ugly and offensive especially to somebody who reads or has read Marvel comics at some point in his life.
    I don't care how broken or how shitty animated the old Marvel games were, but at least they paid respect to the work of Jim Lee and other artists in charge of making X-Men a thing in the 90's and made the models actually look like in the books.
    You just have to look at this game and see that nobody who worked on this knows who any of these characters are or gives a shit about them.

    I don't care about comics, but they made pretty clear they would've been more inspired by MCU than by comics.
    They should have taken a bit more inspiration then as I'm pretty sure that the MCU versions of the applicable characters actually have visible necks and/or aren't hunchbacks.

    what do you guys settle for when you sell on your non wanted sticks??

    personally i aim for recouping all my money to 30% loss

    ive been told by several people that i should settle for up to 50% less than what i paid, but id rather keep than do that beause most of my stuff is in top condition
    I think that most of the sticks/cases that I've sold here have ranged from ~40% loss to slight profit.
    Sticks I've sold on the trading outlet:
    • Saulabi 4K (for powerful game...if you feel like investing another ~$60 in parts -_-)
    • PS2 Sega Virtua Stick
    • Saulabi SPS-3000
    • Hori Namco x2
    • PS2 MAS Stick
    • HRAP1
    • PS3 Madcatz TE
    • Hitbox
    • Qanba Q4RAF
    • MAS Case
    • Panzer Korean Edition

    This doesn't even count the numerous other controllers (~14) that have found their way to the SRK trading outlet.
    Conclusion: I've probably gone through too many sticks. -_-

    Yeah I sold sticks at a lost, it depends on how much work I think they might need.
    I sold a Plastic and metal body stick missing a PCB for $60 before, I knew it needed work it passed into my hands and I had no desire to work on it. And With what my buyer wanted it was better that I let them do the work to customize it their way. I included Sanwa buttons just to get rid of them, and I know they were going to replace the buttons anyways.

    And I have given away a perfectly few sticks to friends before as well.
    I've done other game related stuff with local sales (converters and a few controllers). I've never had enough sticks lying around or been so starved for space that I started giving stuff away. I have definitely tried to point the people I play with to updates and/or upgrades parts-wise that I think would be helpful. I'm also very glad in my local sales that I've never gotten any variation of "How much is __________ for me?" which I've gotten more than a few times here. -_-

    I have a feeling that Capcom is just gonna drop the nerf hammer on the current top tiers and buff all the S2 newcomers in some form.

    That's the vibe I get, at least. But with those rumored additions to the V-system, who knows what'll happen in S3...
    My best guess for S3:
    • Zero UI improvements
    • Zero Battle Lounge improvements
    • A series of highly questionable in both quantity and moves targeted nerfs to current top tiers
    • Some even more questionable buffs to S2 characters + current non-Fang low tiers
    • More Chun-Li costumes

    Also, if you genuinely believe that the more prominent members of the -1 week crowd have only had early access for a week might I interest you in some bridges and monuments that I happen to have for sale?

    What you're saying is pretty true because Illuminati, but I hope I'm not the only person that's not surprised when the guy who wins SCR is a guy that only got to play the game from mom and pop day. Nemo winning (with the Japanese getting the game a day or 2 late) would be even more entertaining. Unlikely, but I won't say 0 percent either.
    I mean in most large open tournaments if you're talking one guy (or a few guys depending on how many total entrants there are) vs. the field it's usually pretty safe to take the field. About the only thing that would surprise is if there wasn't a major issue of collusion within the first 4-6 months of the games release.

    snip because I didn't type enough to warrant bringing the whole thing over

    I'm not talking about FChamp, Jwong, KBrad, etc. as the -1 week crowd, everyone knows their group has had access for a long time. Their level of privilege to be on a different/worse level. I was just talking about the people who got the game from stores breaking the date. Also, that Phil Ivey situation is interesting and I'll probably read up on it.
    Oh, I am talking about FChamp, Justin, etc. because they're the ones who're turning privilege into more money for themselves at the expense of the entire community. The -1 week crowd are turning hustle and geographic advantage into a modicum of a chance to compete against that privilege. I do not know any of them personally so I can only judge them on their actions, and there's a lot there to suggest to that they're extraordinarily short-sighted individuals who are very much OK with the status quo because the status quo is them on top. That's not an especially good way to grow a community and the fact that Capcom is encouraging/endorsing this while simultaneously trying to push that they're all about some good old fashioned open e-sports competition is some high-grade bullshit.
