  • Was there a time where racing games were potentially the most played video games outside of when Underground 2, Most Wanted, Burnout, Gran Turismo and Flatout games were released? Can't remember racing games being played a lot or them being well known for like, the past 10-15 years.

    Not really. Probably Mario Kart 1? It's a pretty niche genre.

    It really is, there weren't racing games that had a huge impact on video games in general, they've been around for a long time sure but it was rare when people were talking mostly about them.

    Need For Speed Underground 2, Burnout 3, Forza Motorsport 2, and Gran Turismo had the most impact. NFSU2 & BO3 for arcade racing, and FM2 & GT for simulation racing.
    300K likes on Yae Miko announcement on Genshin's Twitter account, well, if there's going to be a banner that might outdo Raiden Shogun's moneywise then that's gonna be hers.

    i;ll most likely pull for Shenhe, mostly cuz I think she looks cool and I have 0 desire to pull for the xiao, ganyu, or zhongli, but i'd like to know what Yae Miko does b4 I use up my gaurenteed 5 star pity, because as cool as Shenhe looks, I don't think she's necessary to my account, and If Yae miko ends up filling a niche I want and don't have imma feel real stupid if I use my pity on Shenhe

    On my PS4 I'm saving for Ganyu (50 50) and then I'll try to pull for Zhongli (If I get Ganyu), on my PC file I'll be trying to get Shenhe (guaranteed) and try my luck on the weapon banner for her weapon(close to pity) then try to pull for Xiao, If I don't get him then at the very least I'm building pity for Yae.

    Speaking of Yae, she seems to be a dps, there are some leaks and judging from her kit and signature weapon + its stats she'll be a dps most probably.
    Wait, the 2 upcoming dlc characters for Melty are going to be free? Wonder if they'll be doing this with the rest of the dlc characters as well.
    Not bad, Persona 5 Strikers free for PS Plus users next month, with me purchasing Royal not too long ago and being able to emulate P3 on PC, that leaves me with only P4G and P4A to purchase, now I just need to start playing one of the Persona games, haven't gotten there yet xD.
    Playing Shantae Half Genie Hero makes me realize that there are plenty of games that start of very slow and give you so little that it takes quite a lot to get to the point where the game becomes fun, I needed to get to the fifth stage of the game (with backtracking to previously completed stages with new transformations) in order for me to start enjoying the gameplay part of it.

    There should be more games that give you a good couple of items/abilities right off the bat with more that you can unlock/purchase afterwards and balance the gameplay around that, like how DMC does it.
    The DA Noel reaction from people is weird, like, its an anime game were talking about, there's a certain anime fighter that has a Vampire that looks the same age as DA Noel does but she's many hundred years old and then there's the infamous cat that banged a mage whose child is playable since the third installment of the series, even design-wise there were strange choices made in other anime fighters.

    Like, what the hell is Mitsuru wearing in Persona 4 Arena?

    Don't know, but Mitsuru looks awesome there. It's a very Japanese quirk to do random shit just because they think it looks "cool".
    DNF Duel is handled in such a weird way compared to the other ArcSys games that came out these past years, nothing for a year after the first trailer, then all of a sudden they bombard us with a ton of very short character trailers out of which a few (the grappler trailer specifically) are far too visibly edited and showcase combos that aren't even a thing (yet)
    ArcSys was like "What if we do want to make boss Belial a playable character?", also, character poll for GBFVS, season pass 3 seems to be a thing after all (with this the possibility of Cygames wanting to support this game long term slightly increasing).

    No rollback netcode announcement though, with how many games are getting rollback this is a bad decision that they made just now, I hope that they'll consider adding that to the game later down the line.
    The Honkai team deserves all the credits that they're getting from their fanbase, seriously, the designs for the characters that they're making look amazing and they also design their gameplay to be very, very fun but it wasn't always the case back in the first two, two and a half years after the launch of the game, hopefully Genshin will have improvements in those parts in the upcoming years as well.
    Well, Blazblue is going to get its rollback netcode after all (both CF and TAG to be precise), seems that we're ending the year quite well in terms of fighting game announcements, very exciting news these past few weeks.
    It is both the best and the worst feeling when your opponent is beating you badly in a set in a fighting game and you've got no answer to most of the things he/she is doing.

    Depends on the game. If it's your main game (such as DOA), then it motivates you to go to the lab. If the game has Ed Boon balance (such as MK), then these match-ups make you either throw your controller at the wall or question your sanity.
    The whole Infiltration situation is weird, mainly because of how Capcom only "banned" him for a year (and a half iirc) and let him back to compete just like that, seriously, I forgot that he was only banned for a couple of years and not for a lifetime, which he should've been banned for.

    Yeah, same case with Punk, he had to start a tournament from the losers bracket due to him being angry (verbally too) mainly because of Alex Myers defeating him in the previous official online tournament claiming that Alex's connection was bad/laggy, think he was also angry about Capcom not giving a damn to fix their netcode either iirc.

    I mean, I get that the fighting games are relatively new to the esports scene but the companies definitely need to have specific rules set in stone in the future for their events, because honestly, I don't think that someone should be put into the loser's bracket of the next tournament for venting about things like netcode or the other player's connection.

    @Radiance Thats strange, if he did it’s wrong and I get they don’t want to give a platform to someone who abuses his wife, but if there is no concrete proof it’s kinda sad to ban someone.
    Also, what is going on this week? DOA1(U)-4 backwards compatibility, Warner Bros. Smash, PandaGlobal's partnership with Nintendo, Ultimate and Melee receiving licensed esports support (NA only for now but still, huge news), the only thing that would make this week even wilder would be fighting games like Blazblue or UNI getting rollback out of nowhere.
    Granblue Fantasy Versus info coming soon during Granblue Fes., 40 minutes presentation regarding info for both Relink and the fighting game. Wonder if the long silence about Fantasy Versus was because they were working on rollback + season 3, one can hope.
    Soulcalibur 4 feels even slower than I remember it being, game's still fun to play though.

    Tbh SC4 imo isn't slow, the game doesn't have the mechanics that SC5 and 6 have that make it seem faster and that's how alot of games are, when they're more bare and don't have much combo extensions or mechanics, it seems slow, plus alot of the attacks had more frames compared to 6 so most of the cast is slower frame wise

    Cassandra had the best Critical Finish in the entire game for a lot of good reasons.

    @KasumiLover For me it's the movement that mainly makes the game feel slow, there's a big difference in movement speed between 4 and 6 or 4 and 2.
    What I like about The Messenger is the way progression in the game is handled (among other things), how the game's story goes forward. During the 8-bit segments we have to get from point A to point B where our character is only tasked with one mission, to carry the scroll to the top of the mountain and to prove his worth, which is the way many 8-bit platformers were handled back in the day.
    ChaolanLegacy

    however, when we switch to the 16-bit metroidvania segments, the game becomes a bit more story driven, cutscenes and dialogues become more frequent and you'll need to backtrack to find key items to advance it forward or to interact with characters that you've met before. The best part about it is that the 8-bit platformer part of the game "ends" with a huge backtrack to the first stage of the game.
    Well, this is quite the surprise, God of War (new/PS4 one) pre-purchasable on Steam now.

    Yup, just looked up this morning that God of War will officially be on PC. Wonder what PS exclusives will come to PC next? Horizon was pretty neat.

    It'd be really nice Bloodborne would be coming to PC next and it'd have that sweet, sweet 60 fps gameplay that currently neither the PS4 nor the PS5 were able to achieve that the PC/Steam version most probably could.
    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.

    They were angry about Max being angry at the fight but that's the main idea of Boss Rage, little to no preparation in order to challenge some of the hardest content available in most games, mainly fighting games, that he ends up defeating after many tries, for some viewers, this can be entertaining content either because he/she beat that boss many times and has fun watching someone struggle with it

    just like he/she did once or just enjoys seeing someone tackling an uphill battle but if someone says something bad about KH, especially KH2 (great ARPG, best in the series, they will be even more protective with it), then almost all hell breaks loose for most of the fans of the series.
    ChaolanLegacy
    ChaolanLegacy
    However, Max could've stopped with the Sephiroth fight in KH1, the only KH game he likes, instead of forcing himself through a superboss of a game he doesn't like and has very, very rarely played.
    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.
    ChaolanLegacy
    ChaolanLegacy
    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.
