I will be buying SFV:AE, to me it actually feels like a full package now. I’ve honestly never seen the game live or pressed a single button, its launch was abysmal missing even trivial content like stage transitions and gimmicks, adding that stuff in later was just not acceptable to me it was so meaningless to even bother in the first place, and I’m sure as hell not spending my time unlocking the characters in 2.5.
I’m a 100% biased Marvel fan, I bought the Deluxe game, the season pass and the costume pass, I’m really supporting the game I love, and it seems both communities have had to face the same choice this generation, financially supporting an unfinished and flawed product.
Also Soul Calibur 6 will be on my radar, Tekken is cool but I really want to play a 3D game but something different, and I love ring outs, ever since the Virtua Fighter series first started. I think it’s a really good mechanic to force action from a player who just runs, a bit like negative penalty in Guilty Gear, but encouraging action instead of punishing. It adds a certain pressure and element to fighting games that I’ve missed.
And yes I will be buying DBFZ. 2018 is gonna be a good year!
