  • Took an opportunity to vote on the Game Awards: Best Fighting Game this evening, and this year's offerings are kinda sad: https://thegameawards.com/nominees/best-fighting

    I guess, MultiVersus? Looking forward to the FGC jolt after SF6 & T8 in the future.
    Hot Take: DOA6 would've actually did fine if it had rollback netcode (GGPO, not "Tekken 7/SFV 'rollback'".) The game is innately fun to play, and is held back severely by near unplayable netcode. DOA6/DOA5LR are also technically free-to-play games that don't require PS+ or XBLG helping out with online players.

    I guess it would have helped for sure, but for it to be fine it'd have gameplay where no one would complain about it even during offline matches. The game came out pre-pandemic, and I remember it not even getting DOA5's kind of support for offline matches/tourneys. A lot of us stuck with the game for what it was, sure, but too many veterans were dropping it due to stuff like the meter and brake hold and stuff, right?

    Oh, a DOA6 with GGPO rollback wouldn't do anywhere close to Tekken 7 numbers or anything, but a technically F2P game with solid netcode would have a fairly continuous stream of players. DOA6's gameplay is also nowhere near as oppressive as, say, GG Strive's.

    DOA6 got a lot more support from the developers for the first year actually, remember the 10,000,000 Yen World Tour? "Veterans" dropping off wouldn't really affect casuals from trying a F2P game that much unless there were big name streamers actively shitting on the game.
    Happy birthday to the Playstation 5 & Xbox Series X this week! Can't believe it's been 2 years already. Rarely see those consoles on store shelves if ever.

    At least the Series X is at a way better price compared to the PS5 when its/they're available (where I live, don't know about other countries). Even the PS5's that are bundled together with 1-2 games are like almost 300 euros more expensive than the Series X. They both are nice consoles but both of them are relatively rare to find in stores and one of them (PS5) is far too overpriced.

    ^ Got GameStop here. (Equivalent to GAME I guess), and PS5's are only acquired at that store chain through the purchase of a $900+ CAD bundle. XSX's cost $600+ CAD in comparison. Was a nightmare tracking them down last year, and glad to see the situation technically improve somewhat.

    Yeah I'll admit I had to buy a bundle but I got the cheapest one they had which was a PS5, Horizon Forbidden West, Controller cover and a subscription to their membership that I'll never use. That cost me £530 which isn't too bad when PS5+HFW costs £520 on their own.
    I can't emphasize enough how incredibly useful Twitter's Block function is. Saves my sanity every time I log onto that platform.
    This is currently the bane of my existence:

    Oh, don't get me started on the "LOOKING COOL JOKER!" haha. Morgana's getting benched at the first opportunity LOL!

    I assume you're playing Royal? Funny thing is that Morgana actually tells you to go to sleep significantly less than the vanilla version. Pretty much only when you come back from Palaces/Mementos (which tbf Persona 4 doesn't let you go out at night after doing dungeons either). He used to do it during important story sections too in Vanilla where in those same sections you now have the option to go out.
    SoulCalibur VI has turned 4 years old. Time has just flown. I miss when this series was hype.
    Just caught this in my YT feed. Glad to see this series return.
    It's pretty damn hype!

    I didn't even know that Zakku made a new channel. I saw his update videos and that he wants to focus on other games too, but not that he made a new channel...Or maybe YT unsubbed me from random Youtubers, as usual. Might have to check if I am still subbed to your channel

    Force_of_Nature
    Yeah he did about a year or 2 ago. I remember him doing this series on his last channel IIRC. I'm surprised that this only popped up in my feed now.
    After going over the Bayonetta 3 voice controversy myself, I've personally lost some respect for Hellena Taylor. The whole situation just comes off as her being salty that Bayonetta is continuing without anyway after she declined the contract. Comparing the situation with VA's to nurses and the like is also a bit tone deaf. She had no right to insult Jennifer Hale.

    On a different note, I suspect that Japanese developers don't value english voice actors as much as larger Western developers. Anime english voice actors get paid peanuts.

    Well VA aside. Thats a small portion of what the game is. What got me to the first Babe-O-netta was the stuff behind the scenes. You got your programmers, artists, fashion designers, animators, storyboards, etc.

    Jennifer Hale (aka Dr Naomi Hunter, Kronika, etc) just replied on what her take is on twitter.

    Modern Platinum is questionable even without their peanut payments for VAs and even without this controversy, I'd wait for proper reviews since their recent outputs were a bit questionable. It's probably Bayo but now with uglier designs and more boring looking urban levels, but they need that safety and familiarity for the fans instead of having another low selling flop like Babylon's Lulz or Wonderful 101
    I literally won my very first match of Fortnite's battle royale.

    Fwiw I have never played Fortnite but I hear when you first start it primerily matches you up with other beginners and bots. So it's actually not uncommon to win early matches.
    Force_of_Nature
    Force_of_Nature
    Weird. I don't think Apex Legends did that (well the "bots" I mean). Though that would be odd with squads. Took a bit longer than 1 game to win my first match. Oh, the opponents definitely seemed like beginners too haha.

    yeah fortnite lines you up with other players around the same level. So if you're a noob, then you will play noobs until your level goes up. However, the levels do reset with each season, so you might not be facing just beginners.
    My Steam Deck came in today! DOA6 & SCVI run great on the device. I can get away with DOA6 at 1080p on minimal settings (Though you'll have to go 720p for a solid framerate on every stage), and SCVI at 800p and high settings. Disappointed that Tekken 7 & DOA5LR aren't compatible on it. I hope they get updated by Valve in the future.
    I just noticed that Guilty Gear Strive and Blazblue Crosstag Battle will be coming to Xbox. That is interesting. ArcSys finally going to release more of their games on Xbox? Dragonball Fighterz is pretty dope on the platform. (@1:16)
    Thoughts on Tekken 8?

    Looks pretty damn fine. Not sure how good the final product would look in comparison. Tekken 7 looked massively downgraded at launch.

    Force_of_Nature
    Oh, for sure guys. @DestructionBomb I get you. I remember being hype for Tekken 7 then being considerably letdown by the final product released in June 2017. Pretty much by default Tekken 8 will be the best looking 3D fighter likely if it's optimized for 9th gen consoles.

    I'm at least curious to see how it'll stack up visually to Dead or Alive 6 on an Xbox Series X (or a gaming PC capable of outputting 4K60fps along with those particle effects...). On the bright side, hopefully Bamco won't cheap out on T8 like they did with T7.

    Visually its ehhh ok. It wont have the soft engine a la doa5lr and doa6. Ever since Harada and Ono got together, I noticed their foot fetish is starting to show in their games. Hopefully, modes like tekken force/the devil within, tekken bowl, and tekken ball are unlockables instead of dlc. I wished that Bamco and other companies gives us more instead of giving their IPS the Madden 23 treatment.

    Hey, does anyone play DNF Duel? I've been looking into the game (feels like a spiritual successor to GBVS). Thinking of Swift Master, Crusader, Kunoichi or Dragon Knight. Any thoughts?

    Swiftmaster is the meta for now, but all those other characters you mentioned are also strong as well, the game has the modern arcsys thing where the characters are so clumped together in terms of power that you cant go wrong picking any of them
    Camel with 2 thumbs

    that said, there are characters that have that extra ompf that makes them stick out from the rest, swiftmasters buttons, crusaders infinite, etc etc

    Force_of_Nature
    Swift Master & Crusader are so OD lol. Leaning towards Striker at the moment. She's like Hitomi on steroids. I don't think I've seen a scarier character when they touch you.
