  • Oh boy, the KH community getting worked up about Max sucking at the lvl 1 Crit Sephiroth fight in KH2FM (for content, a.k.a Boss Rage) which doesn't surprise me, they really need to take a chill pill from time to time.

    Sounds like the KH community from the KH forums I know. Can't blame Max for his reasoning to playing the game at first as even I too only ever took an interest to KH because the FF Square characters and mascots were there, and the rise of the game's popularity from the first game entry was because of the FF characters to begin with.

    Will admit that it is rather strange for Max to attempt that challenge while not being into the series, but people are taking it way too overboard yeah.

    But hey, moment KH will be it's own forced identity (no FF support and full indoctrination Disney), KH community will start malding again when their main game doesn't sell like it's used to anymore while they wait 5-6 years for another game.
    Blazblue had another great tournament and especially grand finals at Pinnacle. Ever since Chrono Phantasma had that amazing top 8 at EVO 2014, Blazblue games have very rarely disappointed me (mainly talking about gameplay, I have a few gripes with the story of the games), shame that it is held back by two things right now: 1. No Rollback on any Blazblue game and 2. The Mobile game.

    We might see more Blazblue soon, once the GG hype dies down. I just hope the next Blazblue fighter keeps it's identity and the devs stray from watering down the mechanics similar GG:Strive. People love Blazblue not just for it's lore, but also its complex mechanics and flashy combos. BBCF is the one fighter I could play all day. I love me some Amane, Carl, Tsubaki, and Bullet.

    Yeah, if BBCF would get rollback I'd be up on that more often. It won't be easy to top the last game in the series, let's hope that they don't want to add mechanics or take out some of the fun stuff like Overdrive in order to appeal to the new players, Blazblue's been a game that has seen its fair share of crazy stuff gameplay/balance-wise and I wouldn't have it any other way.
    Apparently the PC version of Melty had quite a few problems/bugs at launch (unsurprisingly) but at the very least they fixed some of them very quickly. Hopefully most/all of the problems with the PC version are going to be fixed by January, I'd like to buy the game on Steam after 2021 ends but so far it would seem that the PS4 version might be the better option for the next couple of months.
    Now that I think about it, the story for many games peaked when it (and the game itself pretty much) had dark or very dark vibes, Tekken's story peaked at 3-5, especially with 4 which is the darkest Tekken game out of all, same with Senran Kagura, where Deep Crimson and Shinovi Versus's story is interesting to follow to a certain degree, even with MK, the Deadly Alliance-Armageddon era is the best story-wise imo.

    And DOA's story arguably peaked with DOA3.

    Agreed.
    At some point between before and after Tekken 6, something really slipped.
    A lot of things have slipped.
    I could actually write a whole article on problems that came with post-Tekken 6.
    Like Jinpachi's retconned on his... transformation issue.
    Azazel's appearance being rendered almost completely moot.
    Or, anything involving Paul Phoenix and several other character's statuses.
    So, Raito (Under Night and Melty composer) dropped an atomic bomb named "we are working on the next instalment of UNI" three days ago on Twitter just like that, day seemed quite peaceful up until he came with the news out of nowhere (also, damn, UNI's going to be 10 years old next year, there's a slight possibility that we might get info about the sequel during the 10 year anniversary).
    Oh boy, if the Nvidia Geforce Now leaks are going to end up being mostly true (hell, even if only a fraction of it ends up being true), there's going to be a lot of pissed off people/developers/companies about the stuff that got revealed a couple of hours ago.
    I find it quite ironic that people decided that they wouldn't be pulling on Raiden Shogun/Ei's banner because she didn't look too interesting for them when the leaked images appeared (I think even) earlier than the Inazuma update, then we got the "booba sword" trailer and now her banner raked in the most money out of all the banners so far (on CN server but still, I think it did very well on the rest as well).

    to be fair they did reset the shop for first time purchase bonuses so ppl were probably more willing to spend money on this banner regardless of community outcry, but I do agree that it's very strange to hear all these complaints about Raiden Shogun and then her banner ends up being the most financially successful one since Genshin's release
    ChaolanLegacy
    ChaolanLegacy
    Yeah, true, most people may have found it worth to top-up with the reset happening which may have contributed to her banner becoming this successful+ the fact that Kokomi is not going to be a character that many are going to be pulling on with her being a healer from what I've heard, still, it outperformed the most successful banners up until hers by a decent amount.
    The Tales of the Rays collab with Slayers makes me think of how awesome a Slayers game would be if it'd have Berseria's or Arise's gameplay, would buy it very, very quickly after its release for sure.
    Think today's the last day that a bunch of fighting games are discounted on Steam and this time GBFVS is discounted as well to 40 euros (the one that includes season pass 1). If some of you are thinking of purchasing the game anytime soon or even in the near future, then it might be a good time to pick it up while this discount is still lasting, who knows when it'll be cheaper again once this is over.
    "The fgc on Twitter must be talking about tech for the newest fighters that have rollback and amazing gameplay out there for sure" notices that most of the posts are about Melty characters not having drip and people not liking Strive after Sonic said that he isn't enjoying the game right now "Uhhhh...."
    PS3's can be quite bothersome to deal with since they have many issues. My older console keeps turning itself off after turning it on and it does this for like 2-3 hours straight. The new one that I've got from Germany (used ofc but decent quality) either has issues with the HDMI port or ith the HDMI cable itself, as there are white lines that start flickering+the screen freezes out of nowhere.
    Even if I don't necessarily play fighting games for their offline content anymore, there are some games that would nicely benefit from them imo. Imagine Tekken 7 having an "extra treasure battle" mode where you're able to use the boss characters and you can rank them up to TGO. It would add some nice replayability to it, something that it lacks quite a lot.
    I wonder if NGMC's success (btw, what was the reception for the collection, because I haven't paid much attention to it, was it positive, negative, were sales ok or better/worse than expected?) or the lack of it is going to be the deciding factor for KT to think or to abandon thoughts about letting TN make a DOA collection.

    Ok-ish numbers, not really very impressive. What surprised me are GG Strive's numbers:

    [PS4] Guilty Gear: Strive (Arc System Works, 06/11/21) – 1,852 (13,574) (No PS5 in Top 30...?)

    I don't know why I thought that Strive would be a bit more popular than that...

    Especially interesting considering that ArcSys just celebrated (on Twitter) that they've sold 500K units of Strive worldwide. Now I'm even more curious about the Steam vs PS4/5 sales for it.
    Its nice to take a break from fighting games, that being said, I can't wait to get back to grinding them during my second half of my vacation, among other single player games.
    An old PS2 game that could've benefitted a lot from patches and dlc's if there would've been updates to games back then would've been Jak 3. Game is good, don't get me wrong but I feel that it misses a couple of things that would've made it superior to Jak 2, hell, even to Precursor Legacy, like a spot that acts like a maze + tough platforming where you have to use all of your acquired skills many times, old and new.
    ....and some people were hoping that Sol would have a Dragon Install by the time Arc released Strive. Good thing that he doesn't have it, otherwise he'd be sending health bars to the shadow realm. If he would've activated DI in round 1 and he would've gotten a hit on his opponent, then the game should've just gave the Sol player the w for round 2 as well.
    Thought about the way SE set up the events for a potential FFX-3. Instead of the novel it would've been better if they just somehow set us up to venture outside of Spira in order to save Tidus permanently instead of us potentially having to go through Sin again, repeating the same thing that we did in FFX.

    That would be pretty cool, though I think that SE wasn't really that satisfied with FFX-2's reception, especially at the time.

    Yeah, iirc the reception of the game was ok but disappointing compared to X's reception, which the novel made 10x worse storywise (I think that the reception to it was just as bad too), that's why I highly doubt that there's going to be a X-3, maybe a good couple of years later but imo they have to forget about "2.5" or just say that they pranked us with it and it isn't canon.
