Hello everyone, I’ve always been interested in fighting games and had a desire to get good at them. My main issue is that I haven’t had anyone available to play one with since high school.
Now that I’m out of college and have some more time on my hands (and money to finally mod my SE stick), I’m trying to decide on a game. The main three I’ve been looking at are UMvC3, BlazBlue, and KOF XIII. I own SF:AE, and it’s fun enough, but I prefer the crazy style of the three games I pointed out, and I like their roster of characters better.
Of the three I’m leaning away from UMvC3, just because from the videos I’ve watched that game looks really difficult to learn.
What it really comes down to though is which one has the best online mode. I have a PS3 and an Xbox (my arcade stick is for Xbox, but I have a converter for PS3), so the system doesn’t matter much to me. I’d like to pick out a game that runs pretty stable with as little lag as possible, and a decent number of people online to play with.
I’m not sure if there’s a general consensus on which one is the best in that category. Having done some reading it looks like KOF is kind of unstable and doesn’t have many people playing, which is unfortunate because I love the roster in that game. The population issue might be changing given how much hype it got an EVO, but that could just make the lag worse.
Anyway, does anyone have enough experience with any or all of these to say how good/bad they are relative to each other?
I understand that only playing online mode won’t let me ever reach my highest potential, but I probably won’t ever go to a tournament anyway.
