A cool thing about the 2 Hayabusa bosses in Nioh is that Jin in Nioh 1 has an outfit that resembles the old NES NG Ryu's outfit, meanwhile Ren in Nioh 2 has a costume that looks more similar to reboot NG Ryu's outfit. Wonder if they'll give the next Hayabusa ancestor an original outfit when Nioh 3 is going to be a thing.
GG+R is getting rollback. Will that make people play it more over Xrd? No, its a very old game now and not the last entry in the franchise but it still should lead to an increase in players online. Personally can't wait to try it out, had purchased the game a long time ago but never bothered with it because of Xrd mainly, well, now I have a reason to do so.
Sonic the Hedgehog 2 is free on Steam as part of Sega's 60th anniversary celebration. For people who haven't tried the game out yet, please do, at times it can get frustrating but its a great game, definitely a good first entry for someone who'd like to try out a STH game.
New character looks interesting, she seems like a strong one too. I'd laugh my ass off if the last character who's going to get a trailer alongside Anji would be A.B.A or Testament or one of the more unpopular characters. Also, damn, Anji making it over Baiken, in this world? Color me surprised!
Jesus, Sega, the hell were you feeding these CPU's when you made VF4E. Even on Very Easy there are times when they read you like an open book on the later stages of arcade mode, normal difficulty gets ridiculous after a while, got my ass destroyed on Stage 8 by Lau.
Interesting Twitter post ASW. Some fans who play their games more competitively did point out that it is unfortunate that their meme, horny and shitposts receive way more likes and retweets than their tournament tweets, while others say that they should be promoting that more instead of doing memes and horny posts which makes them look unprofessional.
I felt my soul slowly leaving my body with every hopkick of my opponent that got them out of my pressure in Tag 2. So much so that I almost wanted to switch my Steam name to something like HopK1ckZ yesterday.
Another point for fighting game leaks being true. Can we expect every fighting game leak to be true from now on? Also, I'm kind of glad that I've been sitting out MK11 until now, can get all that content for full price with the Ultimate version instead of spending god knows how much people payed for MK11 + Aftermath + KP2 soon.
Alright, its official, Sakurai's memeing on us now. (Tbh, wasn't Steve one of the highest voted characters when people were able to "vote" for the next characters that they'd like to see in Smash? They might've been memeing with that pick but you don't meme with a top-tier memer, never do that.)
Playing Virtua Fighter 4 Evolution made me realize that Virtua Fighter is indeed the deepest 3D FG out there, maybe the hardest one to get good at as well. The amount of things you can do in this game and the amount of things your opponent can do to counter you is insane, legit feels like playing chess in a fighting game. If 5FS feels this way too then I'll have a lot of fun with these games.
Kuni 2 looking kinda nice. The way they are handling ranked is nice too.......for players above red ranks who are probably not going to rage quit as often as people below those ranks, this is only going to be working well if they are thinking about implementing a penalty system for rage quitting, otherwise ranked will be even worse than how it was in S2-3.
*Sees GBFVS community on literal flames on Twitter* Ugh, you know what? People should just play whatever they like. Its only been a damn day and the patch for season 2 came with A LOT of changes, players probably haven't even figured the new things the characters can and can't do fully and yet they're already whining about the things that did get nerfed. Think I'm done shitting on Tekken 7....ffs.
Kind of torn between buying an Xbox One X in the near future or buying a new PC. On one hand, with KI and Halos being on Steam now, the only reason I'd buy a One X would be the Horizon games, the old NG's and the old DOA's (if they are made backwards compatible in the future), on the other hand, emulation is becoming better day by day plus my laptop is 4 years old, I'll need a new PC/laptop sooner or later.
Wow, someone managed to make the unplayable characters in Soul Calibur 3 playable 2 years ago via a code that makes them appear in the "Bonus Characters" part of the character select screen with the exception of Dragon and Doppleganger. Never would've imagined that they'd somehow become this easily selectable on the character select screen years after the game's release.
Jesus this presentation was impressive, pricing was something that I've pretty much expected of them to do, 500 $ for 5 with disk, 400 for 5 Digital, three months away from release. Still no extra info on backwards compatibility, or the UI, hopefully they'll have one last presentation one and a half/one month prior to the release of the console.
