    Fighting Games that are not Street Fighter

    A new Arc System Works fighting game has been announced, based in Granblue Fantasy. Looks beautiful like all their games do. Don't know much about the cartoon it's based on though. EDIT: Look's like it's based on a hugely popular Japanese mobile game. The mobile game's developer, Cygames, are sponsors of EVO Japan as well as Street Fighter players Daigo, Snake Eyez and PR Balrog. They also announced Granblue Fantasy Relink, developed by Platinum Games. Looks to be an action RPG though it's not a fighting game so I dunno if I ought to post it in here:

    Yeah it's far too early to be adjusting balance. Fixing broken and unintended stuff is what I'd expect most updates to do.

    PlayStation 4 Console Thread

    I had 1001 hours on Street Fighter V and second place was Ultra Street Fighter IV at 218 hours (though that's b3cause of thousands of hours on other systems already). I thought maybe Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection would be third but it's The Last Of Us Remastered with 106 hours. A chunk of that is its tedious multiplayer trophy which I gave up on.
  4. I'd imagine it's because they either haven't got any advertisers on board yet* so the Capcom Cup ads are essentially placeholders or because this update is just to test the waters for a future free-to-play update. That seems pretty likely to me since it coincided with the free trial of the game l and locked players out of certain modes. I'm surprised it wasn't made free to play earlier since it seems to be surviving on DLC sales alone. Getting the negative press for the adverts out of the way now ahead of a more positive Capcom Cup announcement this weekend may be the plan however, while the background and loading screen adverts are as you'd expect, the stickers slapped unceremoniously onto skin are hilariously bad in their execution. *Though the potential value of ad space will drop if the playerbase does.

    Did Cuphead ever add an easier difficulty? Been tempted to pick it up on Steam a few times.

    Huh I didn't even notice because I was too busy shouting SUPER SMAAAAASH BROOOTHEEEERS! Also I just had a Hungarian beer called Falcon Punch. What a good day.

    Ever been totally hooked on one game?

    Across different versions of Street Fighter IV I've owned I clocked up 3000 hours or so. I'd never been so obsessed with a single game prior to that. Likely a few hundred hours more than that since I played at a load of events and at friends' houses etc. And I was playing it online on PS4 just days ago. It's very good. I'd imagine Goldeneye and Smash Bros Melee would have been the closest prior to those definitely a few hundred hours on each. Generally if I've played a game a lot it's because I'm playing it with or against other people. That's when videogames are best.

    A big fan of the new dramatic pause for those potential KO hits. Mario's jumping dunk with forward+A on an opponent trying to jump back to the stage from the side is so perfect.

    What the fuck is going on.

    Quite a combination of poses on that Luigi/Wario one. I'm excited to read this issue. Might also be tempted to get a hold of The Last Guardian again to complement the Time Extend (plus I haven't tried it on PS4 Pro).

    All Time Favourite Gaming Mission

    Invincibility. People in school used to give me two pounds to unlock it for them, haha. Bunker 2 in Goldeneye is my favourite. Firing a single KF7 Soviet shot into a guards head though the glass window of those metal doors had such a satisfying sound. You could play it stealthily or just go wild too. Loads of fun.

    Almost picked this up today from G-Force too but decided to stick to digital. Argh! Ordered the ethernet USB adapter too because it'll likely be unplayable over wireless. Captain Falcon!

    Tekken 7

    I'm not familiar with the character but he does look a bit out of place, partly because of his proportions relative to the more exaggerated musculature of Tekken's cast but also the barbed bat attack where it sticks to the skull looks a bit odd in tone for Tekken. Summoning a tiger out of nowhere is fine, however. The main reason I'm not keen on guest characters in games is that it can cause licensing nightmares later down the line. The other reason is that sometimes people on the internet type "guess characters" and I can never figure out if it's autocorrect or what they genuinely think they're called.
