Hi! We are in the final stages of the SRK forum migration. Soon, we will lock the forums so we can transfer over all the discussion threads. Please expect a downtime of a few days while we implement the migration. Thx for your patience.

    What is everyone's favorite adult series? Animated movie or show? Don't everyone pick Family Guy now.
    You would have to pay me to watch/endure Family Guy. For show I would say either Archer or Venture Bros. For movie, I have a question first, does 'Batman: Mask of the Phantasm' count as adult enough? If not then I would say either 'Waking Life' or 'A Scanner Darkly'.

    Ah I dont even remember all the fake names I had on dustloop, I had to make a lot of gibberish ones because anyone remotely with my real name would get banned automatically lol I eventually gave up so I mean I honestly couldnt even tell you the last one I tried to use. I dont recall off hand
    I would say that Dustloop sucking ferociously can certainly be pointed out as one of the reasons why the American anime game community routinely gets mopped by the Japanese. Not the main reason for sure but they're very much not helping on this front.

    I'm not even a big fan of Marvel this year but its crazy to not see Marvel this year at Evo.
    I don't see the problem. I feel a bit bad for true fans of the series but the way that the game was handled makes me feel pretty OK about its omission. A lot of the same, as someone pointed out on Twitter, people who're lamenting MvC:I being dropped from Evo are basically the same people who memed SFxT out of the lineup a few years ago.

    Dustloops seems like it self destructed. They dont seem as tight knit as other communities.
    That's because IMO they don't have any aspect of their forum to actually encourage building a community or that gives a sense of community. When I was active there they aggressively discouraged anything that could be remotely construed as off-topic conversation. You might notice that their forum does not have anything resembling an off-topic or general discussion section. I broached this subject with administrators a couple of times and was shot down every time. I mean, maybe some of the people on your forum like talking to one another but don't always want to talk about the niche games you support. Maybe.
    This game's loading times are unbearably long due to the crap lobby system and all the time it takes to connect to the servers and they got way worse with the patch that came out after launch. In its current state just launching the game feels like a chore to me.
    Your results are informative and, unfortunately, unsurprising. While it's nice that the biggest legitimate complaints about DBFZ relate to its online and UI the latter especially isn't something that should still be an issue in 2018. A companies response to the craptastic and uninspired UI found in SFV should be: We can do better than that. I should not be: You think that's bad, watch this! I would also add that a simple measure of this is 'How many clicks/menus do I have to go through to get where I want to?' and on this metric DBFZ does especially poorly.

    Start screen ->
    Acquiring info BS ->
    Select region ->
    Select lobby ->
    Select a different lobby because the one you selected filled up while you were confirming your desire to enter it ->
    Repeat xN until a lobby lets you in ->
    Open warp menu or walk over to training mode section ->
    Done with training mode? OK, you got kicked from the lobby so you get to repeat this process :tongue:

    I, for example, have been slowly working my way through the story mode to unlock A21 (I don't plan on playing her and thus this isn't a high priority). The number of times I haven't been kicked out of the lobby I was in upon taking a break from story mode is zero. There is no legitimate reason why story mode or training mode should be connected to any online anything.

    It really does make me mad just how much stronger mid tier japanese players are compared to mid tier players from any other region in the world. Whenever I see EVO's pools I'm certain enough I'd beat a crapton of people that show up day 1, here on the other hand I've seen a good amount of players that'd be a fucking hassle to get through since they know what they're doing. It makes me mad because nothing really stops players from any region from doing that.
    There absolutely is. Compared to Japan every other major region in the world for fighting games has way shittier internet and/or a substantially more spread out player-base. It is hard to git gud when online play is a pale facsimile of how the game actually plays and when your nearest competition is hours and hours away and there isn't even very much of it.

    Legit afraid for PC and Xbox launch day. It seems like they only care about PS4. Day1 is gonna be a nightmare for those two platforms. I bought two copies just in case on ps4 with PC being my main.
    I would say that your concern, with regards to the X-Box One, is a very legit one. Even if the matchmaking is flawless this is only the second major fighting game to come out on X-Box recently (Injustice 2 being the other) and the first anime fighter to come out on the console. What I'm getting at is the player base for this game on the X-Box is probably nearly nonexistent. It won't matter if the match-making algorithm is the most perfect thing since Cell and the netcode is the most godlike netcode in the history of netcode if the only people playing are you and some Eventhubs random from Madagascar.
