  1. First team of DLC characters have released all of a sudden: Rock Howard, Gato and B. Jenet, alongside a balance patch.

     

    Not played much since getting to level 16 in Ranked for the trophy. I feel compelled to get the other trophies but you have to play through the single player Story mode a bunch of times and every time I start it I just cannot be bothered.

     

    I thought level 16 would be too difficult for me to reach because the matchmaking pool is so small you get thrown in against absolute monsters pretty often but you get two stars for your first win of the day and don't lose any for your first loss so you can make very gradual progress with zero risk if you just keep waiting til tomorrow, haha.

     

    Really enjoyed my time with it though, the advice I read about holding down the button(s) when performing specials/supers was incredibly helpful since it turns otherwise tight links/cancels into generous timings of about a quarter or a second. I still mess up a lot from missing directions on MAX Supers in particular but I think I need to break-in the dpad of the DualSense a bit more.

     

    I got decent mileage out of Shermie's command throw without the followup leading into a natural safe jump if you just hold up-forward and jump attack. People love to buttons. It's a good game for buttons.

     

    Anyway it's a good videogame and I look forward to never playing it again.

  2. Played the first two cups on Novice. Analogue controls are very, very sensitive as N64 games often are when emulated because modern sticks don't have to grind through a mound of plastic parmesan. Would have been nice if they'd either adjusted it a little or added a sensitivity slider.

     

    Definite slowdown in a few instances as well, particularly when the entire pack converged on the narrow bridge of White Land. Probably dipped to 40~50fps. I can't remember if this was the case on original hardware because I was less sensitive to it back then (especially on N64 when 20fps wasn't uncommon).

     

    Anyway it is brilliant and I love it. One of the greatest racing games of all time.

  3. Capcom have announced a new collection of arcade fighting games which includes all of the Darkstalkers games, Cyberbots, Red Earth, Super Gem Fighter Mini Mix and Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo. And then another version of Street Fighter II because it wouldn't be a Capcom collection without it.

     

    All games are playable online with rollback netcode, and training modes added for the fighting games. The menu in the trailer showed an option for one button special moves, and a choice to limit matchmaking to your own region. No word on cross-platform online play so I doubt it's included, which is a shame.

     

    They've included a load of concept art and music too. Releasing on PS4, Xbox One, Switch and PC. and music
