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.
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.
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.
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).
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.
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.
