Now that DOA6 has been released for quite some time, I'm curious to see what game will KT announce next. The games we know that they're currently making are Persona 5 Warriors and Nioh 2, outside of those two they don't have anything huge announced right now. My guesses are that they'll either make SW5, or DW10 or Blue Reflection 2 or Nights of Azure 3.....or Ninja Gaiden 4.....one man can hope I guess.
What a week and we're just halfway through it. MK11 and DOA6 both seem to be having it rough right now. Let me remind you though, that all fighting games are expensive nowadays with the product being unfinished when it is released or its single player mode is as tedius as it can possibly get and feels more like a mobile/F2P game at times, just like most "AAA" games. Gaming will soon be a luxury in a person's life.
Apparently MK11 will have alternate endings according to Ed Boon, unless if by alternate endings he refers to the arcade/tower endings. Although, if time travel is involved, then the possibilities are limitless, you can have the good guys or the bad guys winning this time, so I wouldn't be surprised if story mode would have more endings.
It would seem that DOA yet again started/starts a trend when it comes to fighting games. First it was the stage transitions, now it seems that a couple of fighting games (namely Dissidia FF and DB:Xenoverse 2) are going to have (is having in FF's case) a F2P version of the game. That's actually not bad, I sort of wish that every fighting game would have a F2P version of itself.
A way to make costume part unlocks even better outside of increasing the drop rate in my opinion: Give players the ability to unlock parts for future dlc costumes as well, this way making dlc purchases (for costumes I mean) truly optional. This way you can grind for those costumes but if you want to use them instantly/as soon as they come out then you can just buy them.
From what I've listened to so far Granblue has pretty dope music, which is super good since it'll get the ArcSys treatment on top of it. Just show me some interesting characters and good gameplay (seems like a GG styled game from the one trailer we got) and I'm sold.
So GGXrd and BBTag are main games for EVO Japan and DBZ:Fighterz isn't? That's a bit strange. Also, this is the first time ever since Smash tournaments became huge that neither Melee nor Ultimate made it is as a main game(they'll most probably do/hold a side tournament for one of the two games).
So, Bethesda for the worst gaming company of 2018 with Fallout 76 for the worst game of 2018 is more or less a given at this point. Wonder if they'll be able to bounce back after screwing up as badly as they did. Probably not.
Season pass for FFXV cancelled, only episode Ardyn survived(probably because its done at this point more or less) and a 33 million dollars loss? That's very rough, especially considering that it took and still takes them a lot of time to make their big games, KH3 was announced 5 years ago and we haven't heard much of FFVII remake since it got announced, which was like three years ago. Things don't go smoothly there.
Melee will be a main game at EVO again and apparently GGXrd will not be one. Smash Ultimate takes 4's place as expected. Sort of wished that Melee wouldn't be returning, but I know that it is watched by a lot of people and there are a lot of entrants for that game each and every year.
