MvC2 is still incredibly fun to break out when people are over. I don't know if anybody here has managed to get a win with over another person while using a team of all Servbots but it's a good feeling.

Mortal Kombat Team Looking To Split From Midway
http://kotaku.com/5196568/mortal-kombat-team-looking-to-split-from-midway?skyline=true&s=x (http://kotaku.com/5196568/mortal-kombat-team-looking-to-split-from-midway?skyline=true&s=x)

Quote
Midway's team of developers responsible for the 17-year-old Mortal Kombat franchise is currently in active talks with other publishers to leave the company and for its own studio, sources tell Kotaku.

The MK team, which comprises about 50 developers, is said to be in discussions with a handful of unnamed publishers, with senior members of the group handling negotiations for a possible exodus from Midway. According to Midway sources who wished to remain anonymous, one of the catalysts for the move is a lack of payment in bonuses due to MK team members based on meeting Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe sales targets.

Sources said that the Mortal Kombat team has become increasingly "frustrated" with the handling of Midway's bankruptcy filing. MK staffers also expressed irritation from being in the position of delivering million unit-selling titles on time and on a bi-annual schedule while other projects at the company languish in development.

Midway representatives, when contacted for comment, opted not to discuss the Mortal Kombat team's plans, saying that the team was in "good shape." They did, however, want to stress that Midway itself is not withholding any owed payment to the Mortal Kombat Vs. DC Universe developers.

"Midway is not refusing to pay out those bonuses," PR reps told us. "It's the unsecured creditors committee that is refusing to allow us to pay them. They're the ones holding that up."

If the MK team—who are apparently not under contract at Midway—does find a new studio to call home at a publisher other than Midway, the fighting game franchise may not go with them. That, as well as having to abandon work on the follow-up to MK vs. DC, tentatively titled Mortal Kombat 9, was going to be "tough."

Should the key Mortal Kombat talent leave, it could be a substantial blow to the ailing Midway, which has already closed and consolidated many of its in-house development teams.

SFIV Championship Mode Dated (http://ps3.ign.com/articles/973/973918p1.html)

Quote
April 17, 2009 - Street Fighter IV's Championship Mode has finally been dated, with the free upgrade coming to PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 next week.

The pack heavily bolsters the online content, introducing tournaments and a replay function. Tournament Mode builds upon the Battle Point system currently employed by the game, with players acquiring Grad Points to enter higher tier tournaments, wherein huge amounts of Championship Points are up for grabs. Capcom's Unity blog has the full rundown on what the new Tournament Mode brings to the game.

Most exciting is the introduction of a replay function, allowing players to analyze their opponents moves and spectate in tournaments. The PlayStation Network version will enable players to rate videos, applying tags in an approach that will be familiar YouTube users, while the Xbox 360 version allows players to download videos any study input commands.

Fucking fuck.

Championship mode is out, and sure, it's fine. But the game was stealth patched. I have a tourney tomorrow, and the characters I'm practicing with today aren't the same that I'm going to be playing with tomorrow.

In all honestly, the Cammy and Rose nerfs are miniscule (1%), the Fei Long thing is actually a buff, in certain cases. So really, this is tiny.

www.tu4ar.com (http://www.tu4ar.com) - Marvel vs Capcom 2 confirmed for PSN & XBL, this summer! Featuring online multiplayer! :D

More from Joystiq:

Quote
Update: As expected, Capcom has made the return of MvC2 official via the Capcom Unity website. The biggest news: a demo of the game will be available on PSN this week (most likely during the usual update on Thursday, April 30). Christian Svensson, the company's VP of strategic planning and business development, calls this the "definitive version" of the classic fighter, providing some details to back up his claim.

In addition to the already confirmed online play, it's been revealed that the game is based on the Sega Dreamcast release, features HD upscaling and a widescreen options, and will support custom soundtracks on both platforms. No word yet on a 360 demo, but we've dropped Capcom a line for comment.

Glad to hear it's the Dreamcast version!

If you can sit down, on a daily basis and dedicate 3, 4, 5 etc. of straight, uninterrupted hours to video games, you're hardcore...and probably a loser.  I can barely get through an hour without my wife and kids bugging me about some shit.

This is absolutely holding me back on a couple of Wii games.  I just don't want to have to "work" at playing a game.  Annoying to use Wii controls after a workout or weightlifting or late at night when zonking out.

I hear that.  I'm staring at a full price copy of Dynasty Warriors 6, shrinkwrapped, right now while it's selling new and used for sub 20 bucks.  Worst thing to ever happen to my variety and of video game playing was getting addicted to WoW and Rockband/GuitarHero.

Nice. Would a PS3/360 port be possible? Who else could they add? Speed Racer would be a good one for the NA audience. I wouldn't be surprised if they officially announced TvC2 by the time this is released, though.

Hakushon Daimaou is allegedly cut, but five new characters are in, along with online and some other stuff.
Title: The Vs Fighting Game Thread - News & Views..
Post by: no fact, no matter on June 04, 2009, 12:09:30 AM
I can deal with that. I wonder if the five newbies are Capcom, Tatsunoko or both? They could easily just throw in five other Capcom characters (I'd love to see Strider in this) but it'd be cool if some other Tatsunoko properties made it in there - ie: Samurai Pizza Cats, Speed Racer, or someone out of Neon Genesis Evangelion.
Title: The Vs Fighting Game Thread - News & Views..
Post by: DukeTogo on June 04, 2009, 01:37:45 AM
I imagine the sides will be kept even. That's if this is all true since Capcom shot it down (for now).

Here's a bunch that didn't make the cut before, but may have a chance now. And NGE can't be used because it's a Gainax creation. Tatsunoko only did production work on it.

Quote
Tatsunoko Side :

- Condor no Joe
- Yattaman #2
- Shurato
- Soul Taker
- Nakahara Komugi
- Daikyojin
- Beruku Katsue
- Tekkaman Evil
- Braiking Boss

Capcom Side :

- Leon
- Nash (Charlie)
- Date Masamune
- Arthur
- Ibuki
- Vega (M. Bison)
- ReiRei
- Zero Gouki
- Tiara Hime
- Nero
- June
- Rouge
- Tyrant
- Hinata

It's said that they decided of a 22-characters roster from the beginning, so it would seem like they had to narrow down the selection a bit. Finally, they give their main reasonings behind the omission of some characters :

1. Copyright issues
2. Licensed character which would be too difficult to translate into this game (concerns a large number of characters apparently)
3. Preferences
4. Overall balance

Post by: Thoth on June 05, 2009, 06:59:03 AM
I played TvC at E3. Hakushon Daimou is indeed cut. The best thing is that Capcom is denying that the press release that's floating around exists... I think it's a case of a leak.
Title: The Vs Fighting Game Thread - News & Views..
Post by: no fact, no matter on June 05, 2009, 08:01:20 AM
Bizarre - I wonder what the reason for Hakushon Daimou being cut was? I mean, I don't think that cartoon was ever released over here - only Japan and Europe as far as I know. Unless someone here has the American license and wants some big buck to include him or something like that. Oh well, it's a non issue for me, really. :)

Apparently there's a Soul Calibur 4 port coming to the PSP, and Kratos from God of War is featured as the guest character.

Um, yay?  Clearly the one thing keeping the Soul series from greatness is not enough gimmick guest characters in previous installments!

Never really understood the point of porting fighting games to handhelds.  Does anyone actually buy them?  Seems like a pretty terrible platform for fighters.

Post by: no fact, no matter on June 06, 2009, 03:45:39 AM
I don't really mind them on handhelds. Super Street Fighter 2 on the GBA is one of my favourites. I guess it's just how into fighters you are and how often you're dying to play one if you're on the road or travelling or whatever.

I Got Next is a free documentary on the fighting video game scene created by Ian Cofino (with much support from friends and family). It originally started as a senior project at Purchase College, School of Art and Design, and has grown to something much bigger thanks to the dedicated and passionate players in the community. Originally envisioned as a short documentary, I Got Next has grown into a feature length production, which will see two releases, a short cut on June 26th and a longer cut in the winter of '09.

"No other bids came in, so there's not going to be an auction," confirmed Midway's spokesman, Geoff Mogilner. Warner's $33 million bid has net Midway's Chicago development studios (Mortal Kombat & Stranglehold), which means a sequel to MK vs DC has become a good possibility.

Post by: no fact, no matter on July 03, 2009, 01:23:41 AM
So, did anyone pick up BlazBlue? I managed to nab one of the scarce PS3 versions.. all of which were Limited Edition boxes, so that's cool, though that whole thing that Joystiq reported about the LE Box being the same price as a single disc game didn't translate well up north as I paid the standard increase for LE Boxes..

Anyway, the game itself is pretty fun. I'm not finding it much different from Guilty Gear but I am getting the hang of it much faster.. if that makes sense. The 2D sprites are beautiful in HD, and the 3D stuff ain't too shabby either. As usual, with these guys, the music is awesome.

The cut scenes in story mode are really messed up, though. There are three types - manga style drawing with voiceover, landscape background with voiceover and text overlay, and the usual SRPG style of a character portrait with a moving mouth and text boxes underneath (also with voiceover). I dunno.. they could've done something more with these.. not full on anime video but at least something little more pleasing to the eyes. Oh well.

Online so far is pretty good, even though my opponent in my first match dropped out because I was winning - loser. No lag to speak of, so that is a nice change of pace.

Anyway, my girlfriend is out of town this weekend so I'm sure I'll be spending the next 48 hours playing the hell out of this game. :)

When I first started playing I had no idea that "Nu" (v-13) was the "boss" of that game or whatever.. but apparently a lot of people use her because she's powerful (she's essentially broken).. this sucks because now no one will really fight me and I've gotten really used to using her. I'm also trying to get into Taokaka and Arakune because I've seen some people do some crazy shit (to me) with those characters!

For those who are wondering what happened with BlazBlue, its the same thing that happened to Cross Edge. Something went wrong during the production of the game and therefore only a small batch were made correctly.

Next batch of BlazBlue won't be out till the end of July.

Is Soul Calibur IV one of the worst games to play online in terms of your opponent being really repetitive? I'm guilty of it too. I was fighting against this guy and blocking his attacks and countering them and he was cursing me out. I've never really had that problem with any other game.

For those people who want Tatsunoko vs Capcom I have a buddy in Japan who's played the game and he says that the game is highly broken in the fact that if you know how you can time it you can make infinite combos.

And that's the actual console edition, not the arcade version.


I was originally going to pick up the Xbox 360 version of BluBlaze, but then I found out that nearly all the good players are playing on the PS3 version, so I'm stuck picking that one it seems.

Melty Blood Act Cadenza Ver. B is on the PC. It was the last Melty Blood released.

^_^ I do know about Actress Again. That looks pretty good, though from the same friend I know of that its not as great as Street Fighter IV and BluBlaz though.

Though I do like the concept of being able to change your style yet being the same character.

Evo was pretty hype.  I went 1-2 in both SF4 and SC4, which is kind of embarrassing in SC4 since I'm supposed to be good at it, but totally the greatest thing ever in SF4 because going 1-2 at Evo was my goal from day 1 when I decided I liked the game.  My friends said it couldn't be done, but you have to dream big!

The SF4 grand finals was the greatest thing ever, Justin coming out of losers and winning the first set 3-2 on literally last hit, last round, then Daigo managing to clutch it out and win the second set 3-2.  I wish Justin could have finished it, but still, just ridiculous, so high level.  Makes you appreciate just how much skill there is in top level Street Fighter.

They had a bunch of Tekken 6 stations, which was neat.  That game seems really fun and is really really pretty.  It was cute how the PS3 stations always had long lines and the 360 stations were always empty because no one wanted to use the controller.

Yeah anyway, pretty hype.  Everyone should go at some point.

That's precisely what the patch is for dubq. Its to correct the packet loss and uncontrolled net lag. I might pick up KOF XII, but I'm kinda wanting to pick up BlazBlue first, but I don't know what system. Might be the first game I buy for two systems at this rate.

Capcom Project Manager Natsuki Shizawa dropped some hints on the Street Fighter IV blog that we’ll be getting an announcement regarding a sequel to the popular and revolutionary versus fighter in the not so distant future. Tokyo Game Show, anyone?

It’s rather early to do a full-on Street Fighter V sequel, so I’m expecting an expansion on IV, much like how we had SF2: Champion, Turbo and Super editions in the past.

Colour me excited, either way! I just hope they have enough material to warrant a new addition to this series. Ideally, I’d like to see a continuation of the storyline and ultimately the return of some missing favourites like T. Hawk & Dee Jay from Super and especially the self-proclaimed “God of Muay Thai” Adon from Alpha.

I'd like to mention that Melty Blood Actress Again is based on a visual novel called Tsukihime. Tsukihime has 5 different routes (girls) you can go through to reach your desired true ending. Melty Blood apparently follows none of those naturally, as its actually a continuation of a route that was axed (supposedly).

Just saying...
Title: The Vs Fighting Game Thread - News & Views..
Post by: no fact, no matter on September 21, 2009, 03:36:08 AM
Yep. Tsukihime has certainly spawned a lot of media outside of the visual novel (two mangas and an anime, plus these fighting games). The games themselves, I find pretty fun. Kind of like a simpler Guilty Gear type of engine with even more quirky characters.

Check out the anime if you haven't, it's also pretty well done (even the English dub is surprisingly not horrible).

From escapistmagazine:

Quote
Gamespot has the full skinny: SSF4 will bump up the existing character roster of 25 by adding eight new fighters, three of whom have been revealed thus far. Juri is a new female character, a nimble Tae Kwon Do practitioner from Korea, whereas Super Street Fighter II combatants T. Hawk and Dee Jay will be making a return.

This, of course, leaves five unannounced characters, and while it's possible that some of them could be original fighters like Juri, it's probable that some of them will be fan favorites from other games as well. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for Dudley and Ibuki from Street Fighter III, personally.

SSF4's pre-existing fighters will get an overhaul, too. New Ultra attacks will be added, and balance issues will be addressed based on feedback from the community and testers - so hopefully Sagat won't be quite so overpowered anymore. According to producer Yoshinori Ono, the game would include a superior online system (including a long-awaited lobby feature) but consequently would not be compatible with plain ol' SF4.

That, of course, is the crux of the matter - unlike, say, Fallout 3, this won't be a simple DLC update for people who already have Street Fighter IV. Super SF4 will be a retail-disc release, though it won't be a full-price game. While I'm glad to hear that it won't be sold at full price, any and all enthusiasm will be tempered depending on how much it will sell for.

After all, didn't gamers get tired of buying the same game over and over again back around the time Super Street Fighter II Turbo rolled around?

Any guess/wishes on who they should have as the remaining five?
Title: The Vs Fighting Game Thread - News & Views..
Post by: no fact, no matter on September 29, 2009, 05:16:21 AM
Well, not being full price is at least meeting us halfway I guess.. and I guess it makes sense to be disc based for people who don't want to buy the first IV game and shell out more for an update.

As for the remaining five.. I'm hoping for Adon in there.
Title: The Vs Fighting Game Thread - News & Views..
Post by: DukeTogo on September 29, 2009, 05:32:10 AM
1 returning female since three in all seems like one too many. The rest dudes, 1-2 of whom will be new.

I'd like Karin, Mika, or Ingrid before Ibuki, honestly. Hugo, Dudley, Q, and Adon as possibilities/hopefuls otherwise.

Post by: ericmm on September 30, 2009, 12:51:06 AM

So I seem to be totally engrossed during my spare time and time I'm not sleeping due to drugs, I've been playing BlazBlue that I got from a gift card from work. Such a fun game, and I totally love the soundtrack, I got it on my iPod (I FOUND IT~!), and its totally awesome. Haven't had this much fun with a fighter since MBACvb.

Still having problems learning all the different terminologies for fighting games and also still not responsive enough to keep it up with some of the more skilled players, like HeartNana (though I haven't played him in BB, only MBACvb), but I'm enjoying it never the less. I think the story mode helped with that.

I really enjoyed BlazBlue the one time I played it.  The presentation is very impressive - the graphics and soundtrack are really epic.  I keep toying with the idea of buying it, but I just know I won't have time to play it.

Oh wow Jer you got to play him live? I would love to. And yeah, he's an absolute beast. Though there was a few times that I managed to actually beat him on MBACvb and I was really happy about that. Him and few others I made friends with had encouraged me to keep with it saying I do actually have talent, I just need to actually put the effort in to learn the character's whole skill set.

So I took that as a positive. Though I still suck right now.

Proper name is Melty Blood Act Cadenza Version B. Its a series of fighting games based on the storyline ending of a path in Tsukihime (visual novel) that was never finished for the actual game.

Confused? That's nothing compared to the actual storyline... The game also just had its sequel (or like 5 revision really...) Melty Blood Actress Again, but got released for the arcade and PS2.

Buy it for PS3 so I can come up and play it in a situation where there are two sticks.

Oh and buy another working stick. No more dodging the bad stick!

I might buy BlazBlue for the PS3.  Of course, you could accomplish the exact same two stick goal by buying another stick for 360. :)

I do need to buy another stick.  I was going to buy the wireless Tekken 6 stick, but I think it has the same crappy Hori buttons as the bad stick.  I might have to finally give in and buy a RAP.

You need to buy a PS3.  How are you going to play Tekken 6 on a 360 pad?  I tried it, and it was a pain inducing experience.

But I have a 360 stick.

YOU can use the pad.

The 360 pad is too big a handicap for even Julia to overcome.  When elbow comes out as u/f+1, you might as well just mash but-tons and hope for the best.  Seriously, I had more luck playing SC4 on the bad stick when the broken but-ton was Guard than I had playing Tekken 6 with a 360 pad.  It was horrible.  I have nightmares about it.

12 days!  Get hype!

Then stop building Humvees and bring your PS3 back to MD.

There's so many Rockband songs too.

I can't find a video on the website, but it was on their podcast updates. But Zero from Mega Man X is confirmed for Tatsunoko vs Capcom.

On an off shoot, who do you they think they missed from the game?
Title: The Vs Fighting Game Thread - News & Views..
Post by: DukeTogo on October 16, 2009, 03:28:35 AM
And Joe the Condor. Still one more to be announced, but since the reveals are matching the rumors so far, it's an easy guess who it'll be.

Tatsunoko vs. Capcom: Ultimate All Stars - Joe the Condor gameplay (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8mA0uQpxYQQ#normal)

Tatsunoko Vs. Capcom Zero Gameplay (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0VdTXpPWZkw#normal)

In the end, very surprised they didn't work in Speed Racer or... anyone more familiar to international audiences on the Tatsunoko side, but there's still TvC2.

I recently battled Chachamaru online in BlazBlue today and managed to win 6 of 8 matches against him. I can't believe it, because the only two times I lost were against his best character Hakumen, and I even managed to win once against him. I even saved a replay of that because I had NO life, and was about to kill him, so he did this Counter Assault, but it apparently makes your combo hit for nothing because I took all of it, charged in for a few hits and walked out with a win.

^_^;; I haven't even been practicing. Can't believe I beat him 6 of 8 times. I was literially yelling and screaming all the while because I was going toe to toe with him and putting on a good showing. Even figured out a few tricks in the air and a few anti air moves. So now I'm a bit better.

 :-[ Unfortunately my stamina gives out after around 8 games of best of 5 rounds. After 40 rounds (I think that's slightly off, probably more like 30-35ish), I totally got hammered. Then again, I was only playing Noel so he could probably learn my attacks and stuff.

Still though for those 8 matches were hella fun. I think I'll buy a Tekken 6 stick and game and go hard.

Though my other friend DJCream informed me that Tager and Hakumen (the two characters he uses) are some of the lowest tier characters, so I shouldn't be that estatic really.
Title: The Vs Fighting Game Thread - News & Views..

Title: The Vs Fighting Game Thread - News & Views..
Post by: Flik on October 30, 2009, 10:02:55 AM
Nu's actually quite easy if you can get ahold of her. Nearly any combo you hit her with that's normally a 50% on someone else is like a 75% on her. Problem is getting in close to her.

I haven't bought the Tekken stick yet, its 149.99, and I need to have a job first before I can make that kind of commitment. That would at least give me a stick for both consoles so I could go hard at either system for fighting games.

Post by: Flik on November 01, 2009, 01:08:58 PM
Well I picked up Tekken 6 Limited Edition, which net me the game, art book, and Hori controller. Yeah, I don't have a job and just spent 150, I couldn't help myself.

The Hori controller isn't bad. I still can't get the dash to work when dashing left, but other than that, I've been doing alright. Though I mostly just plugged in BlazBlue to give it a shot. Considering I'm managing to hold my own against Hell mode CPU Nu, I think its a decent controller.

I'll probably test out Tekken 6 here shortly and hopefully I'll be able to do semi-ok. I'm not expecting miracles though, since this will be my first Tekken experience.

Pointless months late thing I wanted to mention since I'm rebuying the game tomorrow to try and get the rest of the achievements and such.

Apparently, Ed Boon said in an interview that the two DLC characters they had finished before Midway's problems for Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe were Quan Chi (Obviously since he's a big part of the game)

AND..

..

Harley Quinn.

Over the weekend I played Tekken 6 and KOF XIII.

Tekken 6 - Never been a fan of the series and this game hasn't changed my mind. The endings weren't very good either.

KOF XIII - Good lord was this a dissapointment. The 3 on 3 time trial idea is nice in principal, but not as the main (and only) feature of the game. I'm very dissapointed in the lack of endings and the lack of Mai.
Title: The Vs Fighting Game Thread - News & Views..
Post by: Flik on November 01, 2009, 06:58:34 PM
Ok, after playing Tekken 6, I must say that unless you are fan of combos and near damn precision doing it, this won't be your cup of tea.

However, the only point for the controller to be there is to control your person. You don't need to worry about any fancy inputs, its just worry about the buttons on the other side and you are good to go.

I also found out that I must be a former boxer in life as Steve Fox is now my main as I totally destroyed my other buddy who's totally new to Tekken with him. And do I mean totally destroyed.

Lots of news coming out of the community event. I only paid attention to the stuff related to my boy Vega:

The rolling claw comes out a lot faster.

The down-forward + medium kick is now an overhead, instead of just looking like one.

His new ultra hits low. If it connects, the opponent is launched into the air, only to land on Vega's outstretched claw. (Not sure what happens if he doesn't have his claw)

Any other questions? I can answer most things.

I haven't been following SSF4 at all, so I apologize for the ignorance - do the new Ultras mean that characters can use either of their two Ultras, or do they have to choose one before the match starts like in SF3?

The second costumes have to be paid for. If you already paid for them, you'll have them. We don't know about the new third costumes. Or colors. I'd put money on having to unlock, just because there's nothing else to unlock in the game.

I have major dislike for the final boss's 3 stage battle.  There is a hidden minigame in the credits, push 1 or 2 and you get to ride a bike, and collect the letters spelling "thanks for playing".  Its oddly quite hard, as you have to jump gaps in the road etc.

The final boss is incredibly easy if your character has a decent projectile. With Ryu, all you need is a bunch of Hadokens until your meter fills up followed by a Shinku Hadoken. Rinse and repeat.

Do you have to play on the harder difficulty settings to unlock everything.

I really hate unlocking things...I'll enjoy the game just the same with everything already unlocked, video game designers!

I don't really care for unlocking things, either. There's no difficulty rules for it, though. After a while, I just turned the difficulty down to 1 and used Ryu. Pick him and whomever you need to beat it with. Ryu destroys everbody, then the second character comes in to get the final hit on the giant and the final boss.

With Marvel vs. Capcom 2, everything was unlocked after you logged so much playing time in...so I would turn the PS2 on at 5am before work, set up a training session and let it run ALLLLL day long.  That I can get with again.

My biggest problem with unlocking things is that there are some guys I just plain couldn't use...notably the big guys like Zangief, Honda, T. Hawk and Blanka.

I knew that much at least, from reading the articles is Game Informer.

I'm just wanting to know if the colors / attires are going to have to be unlocked thru DLC or thru the trials / challenges like in SFIV.

The second costumes have to be paid for. If you already paid for them, you'll have them. We don't know about the new third costumes. Or colors. I'd put money on having to unlock, just because there's nothing else to unlock in the game.

Well, we now know as of today, that every character will have 24 trials. Enjoy.

You know I was playing BlazBlue last night and originally I could only play Noel up till then successfully. Suddenly I'm able to play Jin, Taokaka, Nu, Litchi, and Rachel. Some I had varying degrees of success with, but it was still surprising considering I hadn't picked up a fighter in months.

Maybe by the time Continuum Shift comes out, I'll actually have a sub for Noel finally.

Though, I still suck against Tager.

Sorry luke-o, but I went with the PS3 version, because I've been told by my fighting friends that they'll be getting the PS3, I went with that.

I've also been told to pick up Marvel vs. Capcom to increase my reaction times, as its a more fast paced game and I could use that to become better. So I'll probably do that.

For all the flak it got for not having a storymode, KOFXII was a pretty decent stand alone fighter. I had some fun with it, but if you're going to check it out, try to get it for cheap or rent it first. Outside of that, the only other one I can think of off the top of my head would be Battle Fantasia (it came out in 2008). It's kinda shallow but very stunning, visually.

Honestly, though, I think you'll be set with BlazBlue. I spent a shit load of time on that game and still have only scratched the surface. I really need to get into it again before the sequel comes out.

I've played bits and peices of KoF12 and liked it enough. But lack of story and lack of Mai was dissapointing.

I've seen my mate play Battle Fantasia and, as it's only 14 quid on Amazon, I might pick it up.

No problem - are your 2D's limited to 360? Do you have a Playstation 2? There've been quite a few that've come out recently for the good ole PS2.

Did you ever give Mortal Kombat vs DC a try? Not 2D, but a pretty fun time waster. ;)

Same here. Its a shame that it doesn't get this treatment. Plus it would be kinda cool if they tried (and God that would be hard) tying all the loose storylines into something a little more cohesive than what it is, but hey is pretty good as is.

Hey dub, I'm probably guessing you played MBACvb, right? What character do you normally use? I'm a Ciel user myself.

There've been rumors swirling around about a sequel to Capcom's superhero-flavored fighter Marvel vs Capcom 2 pretty much since the game arrived 10 years ago. And given Capcom's recent success with a Street Fighter revival -- not to mention the sales rampage of MvC2 on XBLA and PSN -- the sequel rumormill has once again begun turning furiously. This week's press-only Captivate event in Hawaii, held yearly by the Japanese publisher, is said to have showcased just such a sequel in Marvel vs Capcom 3 for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, claims PlanetXbox360. At the same event, a sequel to Bionic Commando: Rearmed is alleged to have been announced, though no details are given.

According to the report, MvC3 will receive a retail release and will run in "full 1080p." Allegedly, while the full character list is unknown, some have been confirmed. "Wolverine, Spider-Man, The Hulk, Magneto, Storm, and a few others will be back; but the team behind MvC3 have said they will be blowing fans out of the water with the sheer number of characters this game includes," the piece claims. Rather than sticking with 2D graphics of MvC2, the rumored sequel is said to mix Street Fighter IV's graphical style with the last Marvel vs Capcom game's 2D style. The piece finally claims we'll hear more about the title next week and it'll even be playable at E3 in June. When we reached out to Capcom for comment, we were told, "We don't comment on speculation and rumors."

I know, I was there when I watched Chachamaru's, HeartNana's, and DJCream's reaction going "holy shit, I need to practice my game now". They honestly weren't expecting it to win, so it'll be interesting. Though I think Nana said he wasn't going. T_T And I can't go, because I'm poor.

The only problem for me is its Actress Again, and I haven't played that yet.


Also, I really hope that MvC3 rumor is true. That would be awesome.

This is great news.  I'm really pumped to see a character roster.  Wonder if this will have a Capcom or Marvel final boss?  Maybe an original creation like Abyss from MvC2?  At this point, if they go with a Marvel character, it will be a Void-controlled Sentry, and I'm not sure what it would be if they did something.with a Capcom character.  Either way, hopefully the multiplayer stays just as fun.

Colors and taunts are apparenty time-based / activity-based unlocks. Fight enough with a certain person and you get a message like "You've unlocked a new taunt for Dudley".

How was I whining?  I wasn't.  I certainly wasn't blaming you for taking advantage of the opportunity.  But it's still shitty of Gamestop to sell those used copies as "new".  That's why I never buy from there unless there's a preorder bonus for something.  But I wasn't criticizing you at all.  And that pretty much covers what Smues said, too.

I actually never could until I found out who exactly the people are who I normally play against and how good they are. Also, it makes for good reference material for my fights, because usually you can see things you normally don't do in matches that you should or shouldn't be doing.

Though I also appreciate the genre a lot more. After Street Fighter 2, I absolutely thought the genre was a joke, till I got really involved with Melty Blood Act Cadenza Version B. Then I started realizing that there was a lot more to the genre than just beating the crap out of someone else.

I was pretty excited about learning Juri based on some of the early vids, and after watching Marn play her at a tournament this weekend, I'm totally sold.  I was looking for another non-shoto aggressive kind of character, and she looks like she'll do quite well.  Even more hyped for the game now.

I also hear Rufus's new Ultra eats fireballs and does a ton of damage.  Hopefully it makes the Sagat matchup not so terrible.  Thoth - Have you gotten to mess with Rufus at all?  Have you noticed any other changes?

Initially I'm going to try and see if Dudley's any good, since he was the only character I ever played in Third Strike ('cause he's fucking class personified) and I'd really really like to main him in SSF4. Still annoyed that they changed his voice, but I guess it's not that big a deal.

Rufus's EX Snake Strike does a little less damage. I'd say about 10% less. It's still really scary. The dive kick also seems... less effective somehow? I can't explain it yet. But you are correct about Rufus's Ultra 2. It has a range of about half the screen or so.

Quote
There've been rumors swirling around about a sequel to Capcom's superhero-flavored fighter Marvel vs Capcom 2 pretty much since the game arrived 10 years ago. And given Capcom's recent success with a Street Fighter revival -- not to mention the sales rampage of MvC2 on XBLA and PSN -- the sequel rumormill has once again begun turning furiously. This week's press-only Captivate event in Hawaii, held yearly by the Japanese publisher, is said to have showcased just such a sequel in Marvel vs Capcom 3 for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, claims PlanetXbox360. At the same event, a sequel to Bionic Commando: Rearmed is alleged to have been announced, though no details are given.

According to the report, MvC3 will receive a retail release and will run in "full 1080p." Allegedly, while the full character list is unknown, some have been confirmed. "Wolverine, Spider-Man, The Hulk, Magneto, Storm, and a few others will be back; but the team behind MvC3 have said they will be blowing fans out of the water with the sheer number of characters this game includes," the piece claims. Rather than sticking with 2D graphics of MvC2, the rumored sequel is said to mix Street Fighter IV's graphical style with the last Marvel vs Capcom game's 2D style. The piece finally claims we'll hear more about the title next week and it'll even be playable at E3 in June. When we reached out to Capcom for comment, we were told, "We don't comment on speculation and rumors."

Crossing my fingers...

SSFIV doesn't get shipped until Thursday.. and by the time it gets here I'll have left on vacation and I'd at least wanted to try it out before that..... so I went and picked it up at HMV. Same price, to boot. Just going to return the Amazon one for credit when I get back.

They're usually really awesome. I've had things within 24 hours of ordering them. It just seems that videogames on release days always get the shaft when it comes to their suppliers.

Anyway, this game is awwwwwesome. So much to do. I've already done the trials for Ibuki and Adon, my two new goto's for this game, and I've just broken out my Hori stick for the first time since buying it a couple months ago. A little rusty, though.. I can't believe how used to a regular controller I am now.

I got a few hours in yesterday, trying to learn Juri.  She seems fun.  Pinwheel is great.  Divekick is cool, but it's hard to get used to compared to Rufus's because with all the recovery after it doesn't seem like you can use it to force ground mixups.  I like her charge fireballs - I'm not sure if they're good, but they're really fun.

I need to practice Feng Shui Engine combos since it seems like there's not very many practical ways to combo into her Ultra 2.  Is the f.MK overhead into cr.LK with Feng Shui Engine activated a link?  I'm struggling to get the timing.  I need to figure that out so people won't just block low the whole match.

Actually got this yesterday, but I'm one of the unlucky people who get a unable to join error, so I can't play any of you folks.

Worse yet, I have to look into getting a wired controller because I have too many wireless stuff in my room my wireless controllers aren't functioning properly at all. Which also sucks because my tourney stick on the PS3 is wireless. ._. I'm so sad right now.

I've been going through the challenges, and I'm actually surprised that I managed to get through a ton of people to level 10 before I started having problems. Those four are:

Ken - Not so surprising since I used Ken and Ryu before. I like using Ken more than Ryu, as I like using Senpukyaku as a bounce up. But I suspected I would be better at using Ryu than Ken, simply because I suck at Shoryukens, which is Ken's specialty.

Cody - This is surprising simply because I didn't get very far originally, then went back to him and got to level 10.

Fei Long - When he was introduced I couldn't get him to work at all. However, all the sudden I'm able to get how to play him and doing decently in challenge mode. ...yes, I realize he was introduced after SF2, but I did play the genre later, I just didn't take it seriously.

Juri - This was the most surprising because I wasn't actually expecting her to be the one I can control the best. She's the one I've got the furthest along at level 13, so it was pretty cool that I got her right away.

The only thing I don't like right now is that I need to buy a new wired controller. That just sucks, because I already sunk $150 into my tourney stick.  ^_^ Though its funny that I'm not using the d-pad or tourney stick to play well, but the analog stick on the controller, so I don't even know if I can buy the wired d-pad and use it properly. ._.

I should probably post here. I've tooled around with Adon a bit, but his jump-ins are tough to get used to. Easy comboing into Ultra 2, though.

Most of my time is spent playing with Vega, who is way too much fun now that the hitbox on the EX Wall Dive is increased, meaning my B&B combo (Jump in HK, Ducking MK, Ducking MP, EX Wall Dive) never whiffs. Also, Ultra 1 has antiair properties.

Nothing is more fun though, than playing with old college friends in Team Battle. They're not quite as good, but it works out; I take the Anchor (last) position. Last game we had, my other two buddies went out. I then steamrolled all three of them in wonderful fashion, and then was immediately booted from the room.

Glorious. I went back into my Battle Log (The last 30 matches you play in are automatically stored in the battle log, saving one of them from the log saves it permanently) and saved the most lopsided match permanently.

I almost got 10 wins in a row in Endless Battle for the cheevo, but apparently the 10 wins have to be earned in a single room, and cannot be spread across two rooms (otherwise, I'd have 11 wins).

I'm stuck on Vega Trial 19, but I think I know the trick to it. I've completed all of Adon's Trials, which are all easy enough. I like that Survival and Time Attack are gone because they sucked, and the way you get colors and taunts makes a lot more sense. I like the new way you get character-specific titles (ranking up).

Well, I bought the wireless (returning tomorrow) and its a problem with the controllers themselves. Each button is getting a delayed reaction into the next move, so I can't complete simple combos like Ryu's 2mp 2mp 2hk because it doesn't register the next button hit right away or when I'm trying to do like Juri's 5mp 236lk 214214ak.

So I guess I'm hunting down some street fight d-pads tomorrow since its built to fight.

I wish my Hori controller was working right, but I'm guessing since its wireless, that's what's causing the exact same issue. Before anyone asks, yes I realize I'm a stupid idiot for getting a wireless Hori.

The thing that upsets me though, is from what I've tested with both the wireless and the wired, is I can only play really well with the analog stick in position where I can rotate it properly with my thumb, like the Pelican wired I just bought for a trial test (thank God Walmart does take backs).

I got beat about as badly as I expected to be beaten when playing Jer.  Juri's EX cartwheel kicks are scaryscaryscary.

LOL's at the time I rolled a Cody when picking random despite having NEVER used him (maybe once or twice in Alpha 3...) and rolling Gen 3 times!

I'm really glad I got to use a bit of T.Hawk and Adon.

But honestly the numbers are getting a little high to be playing Random so much. I don't think it leads to "just mashing", but it does get a little frustrating having to try to remember which ultras are which, frantically flipping through the manual during the matchup screen. Would alphabetical character listings been too much to ask for?

Would be interested in trying out this 3+ person room if anyone else is down, I dunno how we'd arrange it, but it sounds like fun. Less Juri / Rufus matchups, although a 50/50 split is way better than 100/0 split...

This is why you need to practice a character until you have him/her down pat, in versus or arcade or even the trials. ;)



I was owning everyone who came up against me last night - win streak FTW! I really like the 1 round setting in network battles. I find that the other people I'm facing really seem to up the ante when it comes to strategy and it presents a greater challenge for me.

I don't know the specifics of what was changed, but the flow and balancing in this game feels so much better than the first. I'm actually finding that my trusty old Blanka is even more of a beast this time out as I feel like it's much easier to flow from some of his combos into the charge moves now.

PS - when are motherfuckas gonna learn that standing across the screen and sloppily throwing hadoken's is NOT a valid defence and that there are players (like me) who know how to get around it and whup their ass in return?

But how could I choose?

Post by: no fact, no matter on April 29, 2010, 02:45:27 AM
Depends on how you play, really. I used to be a mark for Cammy & Ken.. and I would never touch chargers.. but once I started playing Blanka purely on a whim I found that I was really good with him. Like 10x better than I am with any of the QCF characters like Ryu, Ken, Cammy, etc. Though I still do go back to Sagat here and there.

I find with chargers I'm able to play a more defensive game and I usually end up on the winning side when the other player is too offensive for their own good. If I'm looking to go into serious offense mode, then I usually will pick Cammy (or now, Adon, with SSFIV)

While we're on the subject.. has anyone ever noticed that almost everyone who picks Ryu or Ken almost ALWAYS jumps toward you at the beginning of a match? I love it because I just hammer them with Blanka's vertical ball attack. The best part is when they try it again right after that.

That's like asking when pigs are going to fly. Hell, even I use it sometimes when I'm not sure what I'm going to do next, but at least I know you can get around it.

I gotta say the more I play Juri, the more I like her. She's got a nifty combo of an EX air move, that after you nail it, you can land her second ultra, Kaisen something something. I forget the name. Its a pretty sweet combo. I haven't really figured out a good way to use her Engine (Ultra 1), but Kaisen works just fine for me.

Now if only I could pull off moves as easily in actual combat as I do in Challenges and Training. Its annoying that I can pull off Fuhajin or Senshousha or even Kaisen in Training yet, in combat I can only get off Senshousha (I'm probably spelling this wrong, its her backwards wheel kick, 214ak).

Heh I got my ten wins in a row in endless too (thanks Eric!), but I still need to get it in ranked.

Juri's fun.  I love her focus attack combo, FA, backdash, EX divekick, EX pinwheel kick.  So stylish.  I'm worried about how unsafe she is, though.  When people realize how hard you can punish pinwheel, especially EX, she's going to be a lot harder to win with.

I <3 Rufus's Ultra 2.  Shotos have something to fear now, yay!  Sagat/Rufus still feels like a terrible matchup, though, but not quite as bad as before.

Eric - It seemed like Vega was the scariest of your characters to play against, other than your flowcharty Sagat.  You might want to mess with him more.

Having just played a pretty good El Fuerte, I've now played against every character in SSF4 on live. Fuerte is hilarious to play against. The El Fuerte Ultra Spark does so much freaking damage that once his revenge meter is filled the entire match becomes about avoiding that move.

Dante looks insane, but Deadpool may win Fighting Game Character of the Year if there is such a catagory.  Him yelling at the player at the end of the match is only topped by yelling "BANGBANGBANGBANG!!" thorughout his special.  Redfield was kinda generic although I did like him working up through his weapons for his special ending with the rocket launcher, and I liked Cap's Stars and Stripes.

I know Thoth still plays but I'd like to get a few more matches back under my belt before I get killed by his Vega or Adon.

I'd really, really like to go next year. We'll see what happens.

I was out for most of the night but caught a little bit of the action just now and earlier in the evening. TvC is pretty cool to watch but I know so little about it that I don't feel that I can truly appreciate what's going on. I suspect the same thing'll happen when I try to watch the Melty Blood competition later on. SSF4 competition has been really good so far - hopefully the lagginess the stream was suffering from earlier in the day will be gone by Sunday 'cause I don't want to imagine what'll happen when 30,000 people crash the servers trying to watch the finals.

The best part is that for the longest time, it was an urban legend that Gootecks once threw his stick in a fit of rage (later proved to be false). So his disciple keeps the dream alive.

I've basically missed all three days of this thing. Which is my fault, admittedly, but not enough people are uploading matches to YouTube, either. Zero TvC there until today, for instance.

I know they don't care about games anymore, but why G4 doesn't air it, I don't know. It's easy programming. More room for Cheaters I guess. Or if there were match archives or stream replays on the EVO site or something.

Evo was pretty hype.  SSF4 was so ridiculously huge, 1700 people, Ceasar's ballroom was enormous and you could still barely move during SSF4 pools.  Each pool had 90 people, most entire tournaments don't have that many.  Tekken felt like it had about 250 people and was just tiny by comparison.  I went a DQ assisted 4-2 in SSF4 and an embarrassing 0-2 in Tekken, lost to two Eddies, I'm so bad against him.  Definitely was not expecting to do better in Street Fighter than Tekken, shrug.

SSF4 finals were hype but not as hype as last year.  I like upsets, but I was a little disappointed not to see Justin make the finals just because it feels like he's the only American who can play a decent match against Daigo.  Ricky did pretty well, but you could tell he was a little bit outclassed.

Yay Kayane!  Old school Calibur represent~!  Not only did she dominate the women's tourney, but she almost made it out of pools, which given the field is pretty impressive.

I'll definitely be there again next year, would be awesome to get some games in against TSM people.

It's hard to think that the Powerglove-wearing clown is laughing too much given that Justin won Marvel, Marn won TvC, and Ricky finished 2nd at Super.  I'm not up on all the Empire/EG drama, but that's not exactly a bad showing by EG.

Ricky was his own worst enemy. He won what, that first round or two against Daigo then got out of his chair and fist-pumped like he won the whole thing? Yeah...that's what killed him. It felt he did better against Daigo when he first fought him in winner's bracket than he did in the Grand Finals.

The Triforce comment was also Saturday night, before JW, Marn (who I found out is originally from Texas, if not Houston) and Ricky did what they did.

It seems that next year I'll be going. I need to start putting a bit aside each check so I can have a decent sized fund for rooms and what-not. Cost for the rooms shouldn't be too high as I'd be going with like six or seven other people.

I wanted to go so badly this year because Melty was the only game I had a chance of signing up for a tournament and making a decent showing. I'd still go now, but damn. I wanted to play in the Melty tournament. I would've loved to try out the three different Ciel's.

I'm so glad Melty had such a wonderful tournament. Its kinda sad the announcers had to explain all the technicalities of Melty Blood, because sometimes it distracted from the viewing of the videos, but it was wonderful seeing it do so well. While the designs are sort of plain and simple (thanks Type-Moon~!), the game itself is definitely not and this tournament showed it. Sucks though that we had a same character final, because I think it would've had even more of a following with two different characters duking it out in the finals.

I also went to go see somethings about BBCS and got spoiled on the storyline and just well, my mind is blown on everything if what I read is true.

If Melty is still a tourney next year, I'll definitely be checking out Evo next year, should I obtain some money to do so.
Title: The Vs Fighting Game Thread - News & Views..
Post by: Broward on July 16, 2010, 06:18:16 PM
I don't think Melty will make it for next year. I mean, there's already talk of both TvC and MvC2 being bounced due to MvC 3 coming in. So there's Super Street, MvC3, Tekken 6, probably an HDR tourny and it'd leave like one more. If BBCS takes hold, you figure that'll make five with the possibility of a sixth. That's of course if there isn't another women's invite for Super Street..if it comes down to fans, I just don't know if Melty would win out over MvC2 or another more "established" game.

I want Capcom to do an evil robot from Mega Man for once and not some bizarre obscure version of Rock Man that no one has any fond memories of. Someone like Quick Man or Crash Man or even Flash Man would rule.
Um...the past two Marvel vs. Capcom games had the original Megaman in it.

As for evil robot...since Super Skrull is in and that means we won't be getting The Thing...something to combat The Hulk:

I meant the lame ass Mega Man Volnutt character that was in TvC.

Anyway, if Mega Man makes it into this one they should render him so that he looks like the 8-bit NES version.

So he'd be the MvC version of Mr. Game and Watch then?

EDIT: Also, you'd be surprised how many fans of Mega Man Legends there are out there.

Though most of that probably is to Tron Bonne.

Marvel.com has leaked that Thor and fuckin' Amaterasu from Okami are going to be in MvC3. Thor's cool, but Ammy's the one I'm really excited about. I want gameplay video NOWWWWWWWWW

Amaterasu?! That's going to be awesome! Great choice with that one, Capcom!!

I'm glad for Thor, too, as I believe this is his first vs fighter appearance, that I can recall anyway. I am still crossing my fingers for Cable and War Machine, though. Cable, especially, so I can team him up with Deadpool. ;)

Just checked out the new Thor and Ami trailer that was revealed at Comic-Con and while Thor looks good, my God does Ami look broken. I mean, able to change weapons on the fly, spammable paint balls both ground and towards the air, and also two really bad ass hypers, I think she's going to be the one we'll see constantly on online play.

Also, I would say that as soon as I get a release date for this game, I'm buying it. Its just that awesome.

So I managed to pick up BlazBlue: CS (thank God for trade ins) and I finally have gone about learning how to play fighters.

...no, I don't mean that I didn't know before, I just mean that I spent 3 hours constantly programming a character's BnB into my fingers. Sadly, I still whiff on occasion during the middle and I never can land the very last move, but I've mostly got it down. I just need to purchase a better d-pad or something because a PS3 controller is just too small for trying to pull off moves successfully.

Currently using Noel and Tsubaki for those wondering.

I beat her without even trying at the last tournament I was at. My girlfriend was there, and I turned my head from time to time to talk to her. No one in the SoCal tournament scene even likes her, but she dates Mike Ross, so I guess we have to put up with her.

And damn them for not having Makoto out yet, I wanna play as her already. Though still spending like hours trying to land Tsubaki's first combo. I get all of it in, except that damn 22a. I think it needs to be delayed, but I just continually either whiff on landing it, or whiff on it entirely.

Ok, that's not correct. Mu is actually Noel's real name and also what Noel really is, which is the 12th Murokumo Unit. Noel was found on the fields of Ikaruga and was adopted by her mother and father into the Vermillion family and given her new name Noel upon adoption. Bolverk was given to her to seal her memories of being a Murokumo Unit, so that she could live a normal and ordinary life because she no longer had a purpose since she was a failed Unit in that she couldn't connect with the Azure Grimoire.

Though she connects to it later on which is why everyone wants her. Gotta love how failed things are able to connect.

The mindfuck that Terumi does unlocks her memories of being a Murokumo Unit, that's all. So Mu isn't really any different in age than Noel. The only difference between Mu and Noel is that Mu is able to utilize all of Azure Grimoire.

Well there's also the rage against everyone aspect, but that's just our poor Noel trying to cope with the idea of that she isn't really human. But that doesn't matter because she's still our awesome little angel of death.

Ok, she's MY awesome little angel of death. Shoot me. Wait, no, Noel not me!

So is the new Blaz Blue more balanced?

Maybe. The tiers shifted dramatically, but the end result is only slightly more balanced.

The exciting thing is that BlazBlue is actually designed for balance patches. Currently, there's only two rulesets, 1.00 and 1.01. The difference is that Makoto is allowed to be played in 1.01. In 1.00 rules she is not selectable. This does mean they could do more substantial patches down the road.

Does the Xbox version need a Title Update after the patc? I was too busy with other games to find out. If not, it means that Arc Systems Works was smart enough to code in a way to do balancing by creating a DLC file that the program looks for when launching. This means they can patch the game WHENEVER they want, they don't need to wait for Microsoft to approve the patch, nor do they need to pay them for certification.

Yeah my disc are is Tsubaki. Not Mu 12. T_T I wanted Mu 12.

The story in Calamity Trigger was so full of crap, with people being vague on purpose.
Its not that people were being vague on purpose, well ok, they were, but its more the actual nature of what they were trying to do. Because it was harder to get to the different paths than CS, CT was harder to understand. Hell, a lot of things only made sense if you took a wrong path. I have nearly all the paths beat so it made me understand the story a lot better. However to get those paths you stoetimes needed a walkthrough which is stupid. I'm glad they streamlined the process for paths in CS becasue it helps out.

And while CS is the next game in BlazBlue, its actually more like BlazBlue Part II than actually BlazBlue II. Taht's not directed torwards you toth but more towards others who are wondering. And also, if I spell something wrong, its because IE is being a pain right now and moving all over the place on this post so its hard to see what it is taht I'm typing at the moment.

I just got Super Street Fighter IV, and I love it. I'm best with Ryu, Ken, and Sakura, but I still can't beat Seth on medium. Any tips would be appreciated. The second round just gets ridiculous.

The nice thing about CPU Seth is that he will always do one thing based on where you are standing. At full distance (Or almost full distance), he will wall jump and kick. Punish him. Never jump in on him unless it's guaranteed. Know which of your moves go through fireballs, punish his sonic booms with them. Sadly, Ryu, Ken and Sakura don't have any moves that have fireball immunity, save for well-timed Ultras or Supers.

Other than that, general character mastery will win for you. Know your best pokes, and just outpoke him. Being a CPU opponent, he will always be successful to pokes. Nickel and dime him to death if you must. Also, learn his patterns, his are VERY clear... or they used to be. In Super, he's a bit less formulaic. He'll still go to the well for a couple things. Also? Block.

I use a fight pad myself. All the sticks I've seen have a square inset and as I play mostly QC characters, I just don't feel comfortable using them.

The newer MadCatz ones have apparently gotten good reviews by pros and regular gamers alike..but its all about what you plan on doing. If you want to be semi-pro or compete, then just find something you'd like to use..if its just for being at your place and playing with friends, then a pad is all you'd really need.

Just my $.02

Yun and Yang are official for Super Street Fighter 4. There are no pics or videos worthy to post for this yet. There have also been some balance changes:

Zangief: EX Green Hand doesn't knock down.
Honda: Ultra 2 has a new motion: HCBx2.
Bison: Ultra 2 is now a charge motion (HA FUCK YOU YOU WHORE).
Gouken: LP rush punch has no forward movement, but is faster. His counter is now DP + Punch. LP for low body counter, MP for upper, HP is unclear.
Rose: Lost all invincibility on Soul Satellite (Ultra 2).
Makoto: EX Hayate (Rush Punch) Now breaks Armor/Focus Attacks., more invincibility on Oroshi (Overhead chop), and a damage boost on Fukiage (Uppercut).
Abel: Command grab damage nerf. More recovery on Breathless (Ultra 2)
Fuerte: Ultra 2 got a damage nerf.
T. Hawk: Now has a standalone EX Condor Dive (KKK), and can be done on back jumps.
Adon: Wakeup time changed (unclear)
Sagat: More recovery on tiger knee. Damage BUFF on tiger uppercut.

So my boy Abel gets nerfed with his hammer throw, but Breathless doesn't leave you open to get raped when you either whiff / burn it to get out of a corner...I feel sort of "meh" about this.

Adon's wake-up time I can only see them fucking nerfing that shit since he tends to spring the fuck back up after being hit and waking up into a rising jaguar.

Changing Bison's 2nd ultra to a charge is sort of not needed...I mean, what are you doing that for exactly? To stop the abuse it causes from it being so easy to input?

So my boy Abel gets nerfed with his hammer throw, but Breathless doesn't leave you open to get raped when you either whiff / burn it to get out of a corner...I feel sort of "meh" about this.

No, MORE Recovery. You are more open to be raped. Feel free to lower your meh.

MORE SSF4 changes:

Balrog: Ultra 2 is now 2x Half Circle
Zangief: Defensive EX SPD beat out Attackers SPD after an EX Green Hand on hit
Dee Jay: Ultra 1 seemed to do less chip damage
Seth: jumping Fierce punch looks like he is doing a shoulder charge, similar to how his focus attack looks
Makoto: MAYBE her Fukiage (Up Punch) hitbox had been moved forward a bit. Also she MIGHT be able to combo into Fukiage after EX Hayate in the corner. Also a lot of minor changes that all serve to buff her.

I've been playing Soul Calibur on Dreamcast lately. This is a very fun fighter, and still IMO the best SC.

They ran an SC1 tourney at Pax East, and I was surprised at how well it held up after not playing it for like 8 years.  It's a little simple, but it's still really fun, and I love how fast it feels compared to SC4 where they slowed everything down.  Made me wish I'd played it more when it was new, heh.

Are all these SSF4 changes going to hit the home version at some point, or are they just for the arcade version?

They should hit the home version. Consoles are the majority of Capcom's Street Fighter business. Monetize that new character DLC.

I can't believe I didn't notice until just now that Tekken Tag 2 was announced!  It goes without saying that this is pretty much the greatest thing that has ever happened.  There's even a teaser!  TGS 2010 - TEKKEN TAG TOURNAMENT 2 Teaser - Tougeki 2010 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hvL9TOUuDb8#ws)

Also, I was sad to see Justin Wong eliminated from that WCG Ultimate Gamer show because he can't drive.  Too bad, hoped he'd win.

Title: The Vs Fighting Game Thread - News & Views..
Post by: Broward on November 08, 2010, 03:06:03 AM
No, all of the MvC3 characters haven't been announced yet.

In SCR news, Fillipino Champ beat Daigo 3-2 in the second set of the Grand Finals to become the 2010 SCR champ. He had earlier sent Daigo to the losers bracket where The Beast took out Tokido to face off against Champ once again..first beating him 3-1 to reset the match to a final 3-5 set where it came down to the last round of the last match for FC to win.

In other news: Tokido took home the BB:CS title along with the 3rd Strike crown.
Wong took home the MvC2 title, GCYoshi won CvT with PTX..Tekken Tim won T6 and Daigo topped the HDR pool.

Team International (Tokido, Daigo, Sako, GamerBee) took on Team Cali (Valle, Wong, Vangief, Fil. Champ) and won 8-1 with the second set being an OCV with Tokido simply raping Team Cali.

Team SoCal beat Team NoCal when Wong came up 3rd for SoCal and ran through NoCal with Rufus.

So I'll pose this question to Thoth and a few of the other fighting game regulars:

Does it make me a poser / n00b for jumping back in to the community via SFIV and having gone all this time in not knowing about Valle, Choi, Watson and the rest of the "OG" members of the SF scene?

I mean, I played SF2 at home..think I wound up buying all the console versions for SNES but after that, sports games and the like really took hold and I never kept up with SF. Add this to not having a computer for a long while and not knowing of usenet groups or IRC and as such, not knowing of any local scene. (Which, is there / was there any scene in Houston?)

So..am I just band-wagon jumping n00b or is it alright that I got in when I did?

I think you got in at the perfect time. Fighting games were on life support until SF4. You're part of the largest resurgence in fighting game history. Be proud. Watson just retired this past weekend, and people care more about the next generation of Street Fighter players.

As far as your local scene goes, Houston is actually the largest scene in the midwest for Street Fighter. Here's one arcade I found:
Monsters Arcade
13626 Veterans Memorial Dr.
Houston, TX, 77014

Try this one, too:
Stargate
2117 Chenevert; Houston, Texas, 77003

Two more characters announced: Shuma Gorath and Jill Valentine. There's a catch. They are DLC characters, available four weeks after the game launches. They come free if you buy the collector's edition which was revealed today. Obvious conclusion is that DLC characters are confirmed for Marvel vs Capcom 3. The collector's edition seems worth it for the bonus 12-page comic book, and additional artbook.

Here's the full roster:

Marvel Side
-Galactus (Boss) (unrevealed)
-Taskmaster (unlock) (unrevealed)
-Shuma-Gorath (DLC) (leaked)
-She-Hulk
-Deadpool
-Captain America
-X-23
-Magneto
-Modok
-Hulk
-Spider-Man
-Dr. Doom
-Sentinel (unrevealed)
-Storm (unrevealed)
-Phoenix/Dark Phoenix (unrevealed)
-Super Skrull
-Dormammu
-Wolverine
-Iron Man

Capcom Side
-Amaterasu
-Ryu
-Rad Spencer
-Chun Li
-C. Viper (unrevealed)
-Hsien-ko (unrevealed)
-Jill (DLC) (unrevealed)
-Chris
-Wesker
-Dante
-Trish
-Arthur
-Felicia
-Morrigan
-Viewtiful Joe
-Tron Bonne
-Mike Haggar (leaked)
-Akuma (unlock) (unrevealed)
-Zero

The Phoenix thing is apparently this: If Phoenix dies, but you have a full 5-bar super meter, she self-rezzes as Dark Phoenix, and has Seth-like health.

Hah, this is great:

Quote from: Joystiq.com
According to GamesRadar, Marvel vs Capcom 3 has a relatively unique solution to the problem of habitual online quitters. That is to say: People who quit online matches before they are over. That is to say: Rage quitters. Marvel vs Capcom 3 reportedly tracks players' quitting habits and can detect those who quit frequently. Said players will then be placed in a new matchmaking bracket -- one populated solely by other rage quitters.

In other words, quit all the time and you'll be paired with other players that quit all the time. Shoryuken notes that a similar system was implemented in Tatsunoko vs Capcom. We've contacted Capcom to confirm if such a system is indeed in place for MvC3. Assuming it's true, it's certainly a novel concept, though perhaps a terrifying one for those with unstable internet connections.

I have no idea if we were posting that Mortal Kombat movie pitch trailer in here or TV/Film, so I'm gonna post this bit of news in both places.

Quote from: Joystiq
Remember that super violent, Michael Jai White-fronted trailer for a Mortal Kombat film reboot that magically appeared on the internet last summer? Well, sadly, it failed to sell Warner Bros. on the prospect of turning the trailer into a full, proper film -- but that doesn't mean the project is totally dead. According to horror fan site Bloody Disgusting, director Kevin Tancharoen will begin filming a 10-part Mortal Kombat webisode series next month, following in the same gritty vein as last year's pilot.

Other than Jai White's continued involvement as Jax, Bloody Disgusting didn't mention many other details about the series' storyline. We'd usually like a little more reassurance than that; fortunately for these webisodes, the bar for Mortal Kombat-based pieces of cinema is unimaginably low. Like, low. We're talking subterranean, people.

But is it just me, or is there quite a few similar characters in this one? I mean, there is a lot of X-Men characters.

Magneto
Phoenix
Storm
Wolverine
X-23
Sentinal
Deadpool (it could be argued)

That's 33% of the Marvel roster. There was surely room for other choices in there - Daredevil, Punisher, Ms. Marvel, Luke Cage etc.

It's the same with the Capcom side, did we really need three Resi Evil characters? Did we need both Dante and Trish? It's not like Capcom are short on characters to choose from.

Three from Darkstalkers, too. And four or five from Street Fighter.

I haven't compared rosters, but I've seen a few saying that the ratio of X-Men is similar to the other games.

In X-23's case, she's only in to promote her new book, of course. I would have rather had Cyke back, personally. At least there were a few non-annoying left field choices made and some DLC left still.

Yeah it has always been X-Men heavy - I guess thats why it's bugging me this time. Wolverine is a given and the new additions of Pheonix and Sentinal is something I can dig. Storm does nothing for me however.

I just think they could have pushed some new stars who have not featured in any of the Vs series. Like the afore mentioned Ms Marvel or Luke Cage.

EDIT: I think I'm just bitter because DD has been overlooked again.

The reason Punisher isnt in is because they didnt want characters that were too similar to be in the game. From all Ive seen, the roster looks to be pretty balanced as far as what each person can do anf their damage to health ratio.

Some thoughts on the Marvel character choices:

Magneto - Has to be in the game, or the hardcore will bitch. Mag-FUCKIN-Neto, amirite?
Phoenix - Interesting character design choice. However, this character more than any other is likely to be broken as fuck, and Seth Killian knows it, and has gone on record as such.
Storm - Has to be in the game, or the hardcore will bitch. S-Kill directly responsible for her inclusion.
Wolverine - Has to be in, or casuals will bitch.
X-23 - Put in to have more young girls on the Marvel side.
Sentinel - This one is for the hardcore as well.
Deadpool (it could be argued) - Dudes with guns.

I'm probably more excited about playing as M.O.D.O.K. than any other character on the Marvel side. I like to zone and frustrate in fighting games so it sends my heart atwitter to see all the bombs, traps and walls he has at his disposal. Dormammu looks like a lot of fun for the same reason, even if his mobility makes Blackheart look like Spider-Man by comparison.

Hsien-Ko and Sentinel will be the last two characters revealed, and then Galactus is the last boss, considering the leaked list has been 100% correct so far, including the fact that Akuma and Taskmaster are unlockables.

And Sentinel was just leaked in a German mag. Shoryuken.com has details.

I was listening to the live broadcast of the announcement, and basically the logic is "It sells millions in America, and it's more competitive focused this time." They also hinted that they've been in contact with the devs of MK. It's very likely they've been playing MK for a while. Evo staff generally does not take risks putting games into their tournament, so the only way they would put it in the lineup is if they had a decent amount of time on it.

Because Yipes is a god beyond understanding.

Mango Sentinel is a color select of Sentinel where he is Mango Sentinel. Due to its popularity, it is a color select in MvC 3. Also see: Mango Sirlin.

Curleh Mustache: A Curleh Mustache is what you have when you play like Pringles. This means to play so poorly you crumble like a Pringles chip. See, because they're so fragile.

Fun fact: Capcom was thisssss close to doing a cross-promotion with Pringles.

The video is years old, not from a tournament. The best part of it is the full version where after the match, Yipes launches into a minute and a half diatribe about why Arcana Heart sucks, for apparently no reason.

No, you cannot. Join your overlords in a connected dystopian future.

As an aside, Jill and Shuma-Gorath are $5 each on March 15. If you got the collector's edition, redeem the code on the back (Wait until March 15 on the PS3) to get them for free. There will be 6 costumes released March 1 for $5 as well (Ryu, Chris, Dante, Iron Man, Thor, Captain America). I also have on very good authority (And common sense) that everyone will get a bonus costume.

By the way, if anyone is trying to join multiplayer games and getting a ton of connection errors, try going to Custom Search instead of Quick Search, and set Language Preference to English. Should fix about 60-80% of your connection problems.

I was doing the mission mode in MvC3...came across Chun Li.

One of her moves says Down, Charge, Up High.

As I have not been a Street fighter regular and such, I was wondering how you're suppossed to pull off the "charge' that they mention there.
Title: The Vs Fighting Game Thread - News & Views..
Post by: devo on February 16, 2011, 05:17:27 AM
All that means is that you have to "charge" the down command by holding the joystick in the down position for a couple seconds - then press up and the attack button at the same time. This is a command for the Spinning Bird Kick, right?

You'll be okay. The regular 360 pad is god awful for fighting games.

I've only played 10 mins of MvC3 and thus far:

I love the animation style

I love the franetic nature of the game.

I loathe the Light, Medium, Heavy attack control scheme ported over from TvC. I always figured that control scheme was designed because of the Wii's button limitations - but here it is on a control bad that has more than enough buttons. It takes out all the skill of the game and turns it into one giant mess.

I played as one of the characters I was stoked for, Deadpool. And, while his schtick is funny, I fear it could get old very quickly.

I don't really like the scheme, either, but it's actually based off of a standard for a lot of games that came before TvC - Guilty Gear, BlazBlue, Melty Blood, etc. Guilty Gear actually has a fifth button, but it's a "special attack" type button. Either way I can understand why they're using it and there still is skill involved in it since each button does a different version of special moves. Though again I prefer the old Street Fighter scheme if only because I'm so used to it that I always find myself trying to hit the shoulder buttons and then realizing they're not going to do what I expect them to do.

Only a select few though. I don't know, it just doesn't sit well with me.

Which brings me on to my other gripe with the game - everyone, and I mean everyone has the same move list. It's all fireballs, uppercuts and the reverse of the two. There is only a couple of charge moves and half circles. Even a character like Haggar - who is clearly based on Zangief - has fireball controls.

What's everyones team combinations thus far? I've been using Deadpool/Zero/Arthur for the past couple of times. I've tried Wesker (who sucks), Spencer (who sucks) and Dante (who seemed okay) and some of the Marvel ones. I like She-Hulk but can't pull of her super moves for some reason. Pheonix is quite good as is Super Skrull. I'm not big on Dormammu though.

My team right now is: Chun / Wolvie / Sent with Doom as a sub in for Sent at times.

Oh, and Dante is more than "alright" as well. Learn his combos and he can fuck shit up right quick..

It is a complete pain in the ass to play a good Dante. Seems like he can move effortlessly into a fifty-hit combo off of practically anything.

Current team - M.O.D.O.K./Dormammu/Amaterasu. I'm still pretty bad, but I have figured out a few cool tricks with M.O.D.O.K. and Dormmamu that have saved my ass a few times, while Amaterasu is basically the all-around character to throw in there when my keep-away isn't working (though she has a pretty decent keep-away herself with her Rosary forward+C).

Viper's 8 way air dash is tops, plus I have a simple ground bread and butter (A, B, C, Thunder Knuckle A) which has just enough recovery time to get what appears to be an endless loop on the enemy. I can finish with an EX Thunder Knuckle, and pop them up for an air combo, ending with She Hulk who can pop OTG with Torpedo, and finish with the Drop Kick super. It's pretty demoralizing. Iron Man is there to be a keepaway bitch.

There's something very unnatural about doing the Hurricane Kick / Shoryuken combo using the same button, but it's easy to get used to.

I'm probably being very stupid but I can't figure out how to tag and don't feel like getting the book. I just assumed it was two buttons like before but that did nothing.

I love fighting game storytelling logic -
Spoiler: Chun Li • show
You defeated Galactus and saved the Earth! That means you arrested Kingpin, who we didn't even mention you were after!
.

Better than MVC2's total lack of endings, though.

You can tag out via a few options:

A: Hold either Assist 1 or Assist 2.

B: DHC (Delayed Hyper Combo). Granted, you can only use this option if you have the meter to do so and it'll only tag in the next person on your list..but its a safe way to bring someone in.

C: Air Combo. If you can launch your opponent into the air and perform a successful air tag, you can bring in the next team member on the list.

D: Counter Assist. I believe (I have the guide, but I'm not gonna search for it right now) that after you block, immediately push forward and one of the assist buttons. This will tag in which ever member you had on A1 or A2, having them do a quick attack on your opponent and letting you tag in safely.

There might be one or two other ways, but I'm sure Thoth knows what they are.

I figured out holding Assist tagged, complete with the old trick of being able to switch partners before the fight even beings.

I swear I won a match without ever using assist or swapping out, but I did not get the Trophy for doing so. Maybe I did a team combo and forgot.

Haggar is from Final Fight from 89.  Zangief didn't appear until SF2 in 91.

You misunderstood me, I meant in terms of moves. All of his moves are that of Zangief.

...and you're a fool if you think Wesker sucks. That fucker is like a god damned one man blitzkrieg. Seems to hit just as hard as fuckin Sent but moves 1000x faster...add in that damned teleport and what people are calling "maximum wesker" and he's a buzz-saw.

Meh, maybe I need to try him again. But I was less than impressed with him from first impressions. I have only really given the game about half an hours worth of play.

Oh, and Dante is more than "alright" as well. Learn his combos and he can fuck shit up right quick..

Again, only half an hours worth of play. It was all based off first impressions.

This sounds like you have OCD. Does it matter which way you do motions? Just makes the game more needlessly complex.

Maybe I'm just a traditionalist. It's the same with the Dead Island trailer. I think the world of gaming has just passed me by and I'm and old fart who didn't move along with it. I just think that having a simplistic control scheme and the same move list for everyone mkaes the game needlessly easy. There's no challange there.

Luke, Zangief's moves are based off of Haggar's stuff from Final Fight. All of the Wrestling moves plus the Spinning Clothesline were moves Haggar would use in the arcade beat 'em up. They were just made more "complex" for fighting games when they were given to Zangief.

Dante is a beast. I can't say enough good things about him. SO much damage! Also starting to really get into using Amaterasu! The wolf has some fun combos!

Okay, but Hagger's moves in MvC3 (esp his ultra) are Zangief moves. From my recoglection, Haggar has never been in a non-scrolling beat-em up and therefore has never had moves. So, therefore, his moves are based of Zangief.

No I understood.. I'm just reiterating the fact that pretty much every move (not talking about Ultras here) that Zangief has had originated from moves Haggar used in Final Fight. The Suplexes. Piledriver. Spinning Clothesline. Dropkick. Diving Clothesline, etc.

What I don't understand is how you come to the conclusion that characters in side-scrollers don't have moves. Moves are moves.

In SF2, Zangief was given Haggar's moves from Final Fight on purpose. This was intentional.

As far as MvC 3 goes, yeah, there's some overlap, but to me, they play like different characters.

Again, not explaining myself well.

Anyway, the point I was trying to make is that Haggar stuck me as a character that would be a 360 control scheme (similar to Zangief) but he is all fireballs. I just made that point badly. Very, very badly.

I still really haven't had a proper play of the game yet. My total time since Friday has amounted to around half an hour. Not good. My housemates on the other hand had a huge session on it today. I stopped to watch them play for a moment and was amazed at how well they picked the game up - bearing in mind that none of them play/like fighting games. So they just button mashed their way through but managed to pull of huge combos and ultras.

Also this game...http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Final_Fight_Revenge (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Final_Fight_Revenge)

He also was in two side scrolling beat-em-ups where he had more SF2 style moves!  Mighty Final Fight and, especially, Final Fight 3 on Snes.  FF3 he came complete with a super meter which was built up through use of moves like his Iron Hammer double axe handle thingy and dashing attacks, etc.

Didn't know Haggar had so many fans.  He's pretty much my favorite Capcom character of all time and I've just been quietly enjoying him since walking in to a Japan-town bowling alley and seeing Final Fight for the first time back in 1990.  Although I like me some Zangief too, I'm really wishing we had gotten Juggernaut in MVC3 which is easily my favorite Marvel villain and had been since that shitty Pryde of the X-Men cartoon.

Zangief in SF2 seemed to have pretty much every move Haggar did short of the Gut Punches to Double Axe Handle combo and grappling headBUTTs and more so.  Obviously punched up the Flying Piledriver with some Spin Action and gave him crouching throws and grapples too.  I remember being so sad they pulled the (Forward Kick) german suplex from the SNES port of SF2.  I'm surprised to read Haggar's moveset isn't 360 based.  I'd been pretty much avoiding hype machine on this game but this thread has me interested now, off to the FAQs!

Edit:  Ahh I see, Half Circles for the big throws.  I'm cool with that, reminds me of Fatal Fury.

There's been a movement within Capcom, mostly from the US side, to remove all 360 motions in fighting games. Zangief was changed to half circles for HD Remix.

I'd go on as to why SF4 wasn't changed, but I don't think cares as much as I might.

I'll keep it short. Ultimately? 720 motions. Most humans cannot do a standing 720. A double half circle is possible though. Pursuant to that, existing 360 motions would need be changed to half circles.

In order to 730's, I rotate the joystick as fast as I can and then pray to God that it works. It works better in the modern games than the classic Street Fighters. I'm amazed at the gamers who can do it on a constant basis.
Still beats doing a lot of the SNK motions.

The cool thing was I actually did a Fatality! Sometimes I can't seem to do the button combinations correctly but it was nice to just call up a move list and see that it was something like down, forward, down, triangle.

I couldn't get a stage fatality to work when playing as Scorpion or Sub-Zero though. Scorp's uses up twice, and I hate fatalities with "up" in them. I seem to remember that holding block is the key to that, but still nothing.

It used to be, up through UMK3, if a fatality ended with an up, you could hold block all the way through, not release it, and the motion would work. Dunno how it is now. I remember that because it makes Smoke's fatalities way easier.

The fact that he was nerfed so badly just makes it seem like a completely brazen concession to the casual player. The average online warrior couldn't figure out that Sentinel was pretty fucking easily beaten with a little knowledge of his shortcomings so he had to be rendered a borderline joke of a character in order to prevent scrubs from abandoning the game in droves.

Edit: Here's a video from Desk (who is fucking amazing) detailing two of the other changes (the removal of the Haggar/Spencer glitch and an Akuma adjustment that did away with his infinite).

The site ConsoleTECH has posted a trailer (presumably leaked from Capcom's Captivate event) for something that we probably all knew was coming anyway: Super Street Fighter IV Arcade Edition DLC for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions of SSFIV.

According to the trailer, the new DLC adds the arcade-only Yun, Yang, Evil Ryu and Oni characters, along with the changes to character balance made for the Japanese arcade release -- which contradicts a previous statement made by producer Yoshinori Ono. Those who download this add-on can still play against non-DLC Super Street Fighter IV players.

The update also enhances the "Replay Channel" with new features that allow you to send replay data to friends, "follow" certain people and watch their new replays, or watch only fights between people with 3000 PP or more.

I have two achievements left in the first game.  One for playing someone with whatever high rank which should be easy...and then I have so many missions to do. I don't know if I'll ever get that one.  Oh and of course there is a get all achievements achievement...so I guess 3.

They had Tekken Tag 2 playable at Evo, and it felt really solid even though it wasn't a finished build.  It's so much more fun than Tekken 6.  I'm really excited about it.

The Soul Calibur 5 demo also got my hopes up a little bit.  It looks like it plays a little faster than SC4, and it didn't look like it had critical finishes anymore, and these are both great things.  I'd be so happy if it didn't suck, but I'm not going to get my hopes up because Project Soul always lets me down.

I thought I saw a Thoth in my Tekken pool (14).  That wasn't the Thoth from this board, was it?

Broward, I am getting way too many wins (the 10 win streak eludes me, god damn it), but I will be sad when enough people figure out this game and I am exposed for the fraud that I am. In the meantime, I can't believe I actually want them to come out with the DLC characters already. EX Iori comes out Dec 7 for $5. I'm so happy the netcode is not trash.

I still don't get why the fuck Mega Man and Pac Man are exclusives for Sony as those aren't Sony characters and would / should be on the 360 as well.

I mean, I don't really care all that much as I've never been a big fan of "guest characters" but still..

Capcom possibly signed a deal with Sony. I think MS does this all the time with Bethesda stuff. Either that or the 360 will be getting something else that hasn't been announced yet, or they will also get these two characters but after a set amount of time goes by (the deal could be that Sony has it first).

I know the talk that came out a week or so ago was that Ono was wanting to talk with Microsoft about using Chief and / or Marcus Fenix as 360 fighters but things couldn't get worked out in time. Of course, trying to get the rights to Marcus while Epic is in the midst of making Gears 3 and don't have the time to quality check how he's being used is kind of dumb on Ono's part.

Meh..I've already got a few teams picked out for SFxT and am looking forward to Soul Calibur 5 coming out on Tuesday.

Apparently a lot of people are upset at this version of Mega Man. They wanted him in UMVC3 and Capcom answered with this version from the boxart of Mega Man 1. I have no problem with it, but I think it's kind of weird how Capcom seems to be trolling a good chunk of their fanbase.
Title: Re: The Vs Fighting Game Thread - News & Views..
Post by: DukeTogo on January 30, 2012, 12:35:59 PM
I think it's goddamn hilarious. But he was going to be in Inafune's Mega Man Universe, so they put him in this instead. So it's trolling the fanbase, a tribute to Inafune, a dig, or maybe all three. They could've put him in UMvC3 but as far as the rest of Mega Man lately is concerned, such as the cancellations, there's a little bit of irrationality from fans.

Ono is the one taking the blame, from the fans at least, since it's "his" game. Inafune more or less said "you should use this one" according to Ono's tweets. At least, as far as my understanding of broken English goes: "I consulted with Mr.Megaman(his name is Mr.I…) about it 1 years ago.Its result! ;D"

SC5 seems pretty good after one day of play.  The online isn't GGPO good, but it's the best Namco's ever done.  I was playing on a wireless router, and other than some disconnects that were probably the fault of the router, the matches were never unplayable.
 
It feels slightly faster than SC4, although not as fast as the first three.  The super system is cool.  The supers have neat properties, like Mitsus sets up all kinds of crazy tech traps, without feeling broken.  Tying guard impact to super meter is interesting.  As an old SC2 player that liked having GIs being really key, I don't know if I fully approve, but it's better than SC4, where the window on GI was so small that it was useless.  And getting just a guaranteed launcher after a guard break is so much better than stupid critical finish.  I also like the fast step, it sets up more Tekken like movement, which is nice.  I don't have an opinion on just guard yet, since the online's not good enough to really let you do it.

If anyone wants to play, hit me up on PSN - PSUJer.

Yeah, shockingly, not playing a game for three months isn't the best preparation for Evo.  At least I didn't go 0-2!

The finals were pretty hype across the board, with Marvel and KoF being the most hype.  Oh except for SFxT, those finals were terrible.

So overall impressions of the games I saw at Evo are that TTT2 is awesome, P4A is awesome, Playstation Battle All Stars looks interesting but seems to have some weird mechanics, and Injustice looks kind of stupid.

Does "got bodied" mean you got your asses kicked? Or that fat gamers were rubbing their bodies all over you in line?

P4A does look awesome, though. I can't wait for that to drop next month on PS3. Injustice does look dumb and is definitely an unnecessary entry into the genre. Were people really clamoring for another DC Universe fighter?

P4A looks so good that I think I'd want it even if I weren't a massive fan of the Persona series. And while I appreciate what they're trying to do with Injustice it just seems like they're going way over the top with the usable/destructible environments and shifting stages.

I had a match against Aris in Tekken Tag 2 on stream last night, but the match was right after an announcement that two large arcades in Southern California are closing. The commentators didn't even talk about the match I was having. I felt like Tyson Kidd.

The other is Japan Arcade, which is in the Little Tokyo Galleria located on 3rd Street in Downtown LA. The thing is, they're building a Round 1-like complex in that building, so I think Japan Arcade's days were always numbered.

But several X-Men appearing in the Marvel branded game doesn't?

I get it, and I remember for years the talk was there would never be a MVC3 because Capcom wouldn't deal with the copyright hassle / payments / etc. to make another fighter for a costly 2D fighter (note that "costly" came about because I believe one of those early 2000s PS2 2D fighters - one of the Guilty Gear games? - cost a lot of money for really fluid 2D sprite animation and made no money back).  Then MVC2 was released in HD, MVC3 happened, a half-sequel happened, and now MVC 1 / Marvel Super Heroes got a HD release.  I figured they were good with the license now.
Title: Re: The Vs Fighting Game Thread - News & Views..
Post by: DukeTogo on September 27, 2012, 11:43:15 AM
It wasn't really because it was too costly. Maybe the license itself was, which would be how they lost it in the first place, but if anything could have made its money back with the demand it had at the time, it was MvC.

It was rather because they totally lost the rights to EA so they could make that Marvel Nemesis shitfuck and a cancelled fighter by EA Chicago. Just a bad deal that didn't pay dividends for anyone.

That said, I have no idea what the hang-up with the X-Men name could be.

Cyclops - Has been in recently re-released games.
Gambit - Has been in recently re-released games.
Juggernaut - In Marvel vs. Capcom
Magneto - In new Capcom games
Rogue - Has been in recently re-released games.
Sabertooh - MVC2.
Storm - In new Capcom games.
Wolverine - In new Capcom games.

So would the big hold up the boss character / likeness of Apocalypse?

Except for Apocalypse, they've all been in MvC 2. I think Capcom lost the license to Activison, then Activison lost it, and then Marvel was acquired by Disney. Disney and Capcom have always had a good working relationship and here we are.

It's actually because X-Men appears in the name of the game, and in various parts of the game, like the title screen. That's it. If a character is an X-Man, they can totally be used, as long as it isn't an X-Men GAME.

So if they called the game "Marvel vs. Capcom Zero" and except for some re-branding and added special features it was the exact same game, it would be a-ok?
