Patch now = Floodgates to why the gameplay hasn't be updated as CPM flies through the roof.

Oh I'm aware of what dignity it lost, just wondering why take it out on SRK.com.  E-Hubs I get it, still funny holding a glitch hostage because of your "hype as fuck" flop.

On the glitch, few people found out its related to save editing and were able to replicate it.
Title: Re: fighting games news that dont deserve their own thread
Post by: -Red- on June 04, 2014, 02:25:03 pm
Wouldn't save editing NOT be considered a glitch though? I'm sure there's a way to pull it off in the game without any sort of modding. You know, something silly like when people were able to gain access to DLC costumes without having purchased most of them. I mean if you're going to look for a way to get 3 vergils and anything is fair game then yeah save editing is the most obvious one.

The trick is doing that without editing the save or the game whatsoever.

So....apparently the thing that lets you access Galactus also sets DLC costumes including Magneto's previously locked one
Spoiler, click to toggle visibilty

So now there are a few likely scenarios after this.

1. The game is finally getting attention at Capcom's submission, gameplay update catering to the fans, removal or adjustments on the save editor, and Crying Fury is revered as a zero to hero savior of the UMvC3 fighting game scene and his glory will be passed on for weeks to come.

2. Capcom's only solution is to disable the servers for all platforms as its the only remedy to prevent Magento's costume from reaching online, and the hype as fuck Bryan is now wanted for the destruction of the UMvC3 online scene and gamers will go after his head for weeks to come.

3.  Will get patched, things will be back to normal without further planning, which is most likely to occur.

4.  Won't get patch, House of M Magneto for EVO '14 UMvC3 GF.  Also High Lord Galactus.


The editor also allows unlocked Gold Herald colors.

You really think they are gonna patch UMvC3 after all the NUMEROUS amounts of bugs that have been in that game since the get go now of all times?

I will ALWAYS bank of #4
Title: Re: fighting games news that dont deserve their own thread
Post by: Kirishima on June 06, 2014, 05:32:42 am
To be fair, those bugs are now used in tournies nowadays, unintended as it was and hardly game breaking, except for a very few that needs strict inputs, or something. 

It's a very critical issue this time not only due to a rampaging end boss running amok on ranked as we speak (yeah there's the report button) but now a costume that was never meant to have an official release is now loose for others to use. 

Reminds me of the DLC costume bug patched right away. I'll be surprised if Capcom lets this slide.

Hence why I'm going for #3.
Title: Re: fighting games news that dont deserve their own thread
Post by: Niitris on June 06, 2014, 05:55:55 am
rip Mahvel 3 (2011-2014).

That was back when Capcom could touch the game. Seems like they can't anymore, not helped that the dev team disassembled iirc.

4 is would wind up being the most realistic scenario. Although this would have no effect on tournaments, just online play (or at least what would be left of it).
Title: Re: fighting games news that dont deserve their own thread
Post by: -Red- on June 06, 2014, 12:45:56 pm
What are the gold herald costumes usually used for? Are those for H&H mode NPCs or something? They lack big portraits so they're definitely not supposed to be used by players. I recall the vita version having an extra herald unlockable color as well but no idea if that is related to this.
Title: Re: fighting games news that dont deserve their own thread
Post by: DMK on June 06, 2014, 01:10:33 pm
Gold colors were only for the Vita version, but looks like they held it back on consoles or maybe would have unlocked them following a patch they had planned?

THE PLOT THICKENS

My one question is, how is this only happening now? it just feels like something someone would have tried before.

If you want to help beginners, make good tutorials and make a good matching system so people of the same level fight each other in Online mode. It's as simple as that. And even with that, it's a fact that there will be skilled and unskilled players. There's no system in which somebody isn't bad at it.

But hey, it's just another way for Capcom to steal money from your wallet. I sure hope there's an option to forbid players from using those "pay-for-advantage" system in matches.

OK if they realized that Street Fighter X Tekken failed because that GEM system then i believe them not because of timing.  That is one thing that Street Fighter V does not need.

Fine you don't like me but that GEM system won't help any new players only to cheat (Regardless if they are balanced or not)

Ono may not want that to happen but he is not the president of Capcom.

Just so everyone's clear on this, Sports Nippon is a reputable publication in Japan, which is why we bothered running this report at all. The newspaper has been around since 1948, and Sponichi is their online space.

We looked at the Event Hubs report, then looked at the source, discussed its background, and only decided to run the news following that. We also made sure to translate Haruhiro Tsujimoto's quote exactly as it was quoted in Sponichi, just to make sure that we were being as accurate to the source of the news as possible.

My personal advice would be to consider both sides—what Sponichi reported and what Ono said over Twitter. Ono is knowing for being a passionate game developer, and I'm sure he'd be rather horrified at the prospect of turning Street Fighter into a pay-to-win franchise. Note that Capcom, unlike Namco and Tecmo, have not even attempted a free-to-play model with their fighting games yet, and going by statements made in the past, this is at least in part due to Ono.

On the other hand, I don't think Sponichi pulled that report out of their rear ends either. It's an awfully specific thing to say, and to attribute it to Capcom's CEO is a bold thing to do. No professional would do that without being prepared for dire consequences if they were wrong.

So, in a nutshell, consider both sides. I'm sure Ono doesn't want this to happen personally. At the same time, Ono is not Capcom's president/CEO.

but the creator of the game specifically said that was a false rumor


how...........do you not believe one of the guys working on the game when he says that the rumor was false specifically when you have no evidence that the rumor was true and specifically when it was started by someone who isn't even involved with the game, which is only in the dev process

OK if they realized that Street Fighter X Tekken failed because that GEM system
That is the almost the absolute least of the reasons why it failed.

Gems aren't an inherently terrible concept, nor is trying to expand the playing field for newer users ("casuals" are the ones who end up making these games succeed or not). It's the implementation that was a disaster.

Capcom took it one step further. (http://shoryuken.com/2014/06/12/capcom-officially-addresses-reports-on-upcoming-street-fighter-development/)

Quote
A certain media organization carried an interview with Capcom President Haruhiro Tsujimoto. Regarding the reference to a pay system in the interview article, Haruhiro Tsujimoto did not make any comments on adjusting strength of characters in the game by using this type of system.

Furthermore, details regarding “Street Fighter 5″, including the title itself, were not officially announced at this point.

SNKP files a trademark titled "KOF." (https://twitter.com/trademark_bot/status/483720890455048193)

DualShockers said:
At the beginning of the month SNK playmore registered a new trademark for “KOF” with the Japanese Patent and Trademark office. It was filed under class 9 (video games), 28 (accessories and parts for video game machines) and 41 (online games).

SNK already had a “KOF” trademark registered, but it was bound to an old logo. Yet, it’s expiration far in the future (2018) so this isn’t a renewal of that one, and is probably for something entirely new.

Considering the recent trends of releasing sequels and reboots of popular franchises using only acronyms as the title, it’s quite likely that we’re looking at that kind of possibility.

The recent announcement of the mobile game The Rhythm of Fighters may have left fans a little disgruntled, but if this indicates a new King of Fighters game in development, it could save the day, especially since the trademark makes no mention of mobile platforms.

If only he just added that little TmBot twitter link on his article.

Blogger threw a bitch fit on Gaf because his article lacked a source lol. I'd love to be wrong but it's probably for some bs mobile game anyway (even though they already have a mobile game called "KOF").

There's also that huge plothole about Geese being dead in one timeline and not in the other. Geese is the ultimate KOF boss, since he made the first tournament, and singlehandedly created the events that led to FF and AOF.

She's been showing up in SNK's Pachinko games for a few years now.

Yes I do. And this Alice reeks of it.
She was a Terry fangirl since the beginning, I don't see how she could be a Mary Sue when she's been the same for a couple of decades and the people in charge have changed a few times. At the very most you could call her a player insert, in that she represents the players who are fans of Terry, but it's nonsense to say she's a Mary Sue, because she's not a self-insert of whoever made her, plus the only trait she has that's anywhere close to a Mary Sue is that she follows the hero around, she has nothing else that we know of. She simply was supposed to be a character replacing Mai. And in that respect, she's really not that different from her initial concept, only her appearance changed.

It absolutely makes no sense to call her a Mary Sue. But... I do think it also is wrong to call her the same character as the abandoned Alice from FF3. Barely even seems like being inspired by FF3 Alice beyond liking Terry; they don't even have the same last name!

also she's dumb and I hate her >:[

I dunno, it just doesn't seem that likely. Those models seem too high quality to be used in anything other than FMVs. Plus, they're all rebooted versions FF characters, and it doesn't seem like SNK would use most of those characters and/or those reboot looks in the next KOF game (cause they're probably not doing a new FF game anytime soon).
Title: Re: fighting games news that dont deserve their own thread
Post by: Byakko on July 25, 2014, 08:16:14 pm
Barely even seems like being inspired by FF3 Alice beyond liking Terry; they don't even have the same last name!
But then that makes it a retcon / evolution, it's a fact that she's been around for a few years and she was supposed to be that character since the first time she came back (she didn't even get put on a bus and came back later, she was standing around in backgrounds). She just changed along with the decades and the few designers that went through the franchise.

Well, to be fair, long story short, they probably had the idea of her character back in the old days, they ended up not using her but they kept her around just in case, and then when they needed something they came back to her and updated / revamped her.
Title: Re: fighting games news that dont deserve their own thread
Post by: Jmorphman on July 25, 2014, 08:25:16 pm
I mean, it's all semantics but I think it's better to treat them as different characters, with pachinko Alice's concept being inspired by FF3 Alice, instead of character development.

Besides, that way you can do Alice/Alice OTP! (cuz pachinko Alice best step off of Blue Mary's man >:[)

let's debunk this mary sue nonsense, well, when it was the subject:

see, alba meira is a mary sue (or marty stu, if you will, and by extension soirée because they're twins for some retardedmentally challenged reason)

let's explain how he was a mary sue: 3rd party (of a sort, he doesn't fit in my canon, bitch) canon immigrant, author self-insert (falcoon, a man i very hate, has went on record as stating that alba was modeled after him and is who he would be if he was a vg char), who automatically knows all the og/established characters and has rivalries with most of them/has defeated most of them (hey, it's that guy i just met that beat me before even tho i never seen him before this moment), wins the tournament and is (in falcoon's deluded canon) the strongest cast member and also, wait for it...............an alien ("I have to go, my planet needs me" - poochie the dog, 1997)

i can't make this stuff up

that is a mary sue, alice is not a mary sue

Post by: Nero D. on July 25, 2014, 11:20:16 pm
both @shwa & jnp, in mi canon, yes :(

i was thinking about that too, and i remember that alba and clark (who can canonically toss around chang, and daimon, and maxima, a goddamn cyborg) had some little rivalry going on that wasn't fully expanded on, (guess who won that fight lol), when pretty much the only reason team ikari don't win tournaments (in the real canon) is because heidern has them running a side investigation most of the time (ralf punches tanks irl, ffs)

also seth, who was confirmed as strong as team ikari, was for some reason directly related to the killing of the meira bros' boss (who lien killed, when she was under duke's command when he was under control of mephistopheles, who were under command of kushiel, who were under command of addis, which is aliens.......im not making this up i swear)

One word, Falcoon. He had full authority at the time - just because he made some popular fanarts this one time on the Internet and SNK decided they should hire him and catapult him at the top of their biggest brand to get some of that popularity for themselves. They probably failed to check the original artworks he was doing, those with his own designs.

Interview about Evo's next main-stage game. (http://marvel.com/news/video_games/2014/7/26/22963/sdcc_2014_contest_of_champions)

Quote
Marvel: What can fans expect from the fighting system? How are players going to control combatants? What’s the combo system like?

Cuz Parry: In terms of controls, we most definitely are designing this game specifically for the strengths of the touch device platforms. There won’t be any buttons or virtual joysticks. I know it sounds clichéd, but the controls really are intuitive and easy to pick up. There are a variety of basic attacks—light, medium, and heavy—and each hero has multiple signature special attacks that can be used for greater damage. There is a combo system that rewards players for mixing up their moves and performing well-timed blocks. The higher the combo, the faster your special attacks regenerate. I can’t go too much deeper into the specifics but rest assured our dev team is comprised of many avid fighting game experts that are dedicated to making a fun, accessible fighting game with a degree of depth to satisfy fans of the genre.

well, that convinced me; day 1.

Capcom and Dimps working on new fighting game (http://gematsu.com/2014/09/capcom-dimps-working-new-fighting-game)

Quote
Capcom is working on a new fighting game with Dimps, Capcom studio producer Yoshinori Ono revealed on Twitter.

“We are recruiting colleagues to work together with us at Dimps studio for new FG,” Ono said in the tweet.

Dimps and Capcom co-developed Street Fighter IV, as well as its many iterations that followed, including Street Fighter X Tekken.

Back in June, Capcom said it was in the “early planning stages” for Street Fighter V. Given Dimps’ history with the franchise, it’s not a stretch to think this might be that project.

Not "news," but interesting article on Fighting Vipers 2 done by srk. (http://shoryuken.com/2014/09/08/death-crunch-smashing-through-the-cage-of-fighting-vipers-2-with-heidi-zero-chan-kemps-and-heruru/)

Quote
In an article series dedicated to obscurities, Fighting Vipers 2 might exist in its own class. It never got an official release in North American arcades, its Dreamcast port was Japan- and Europe-only, and it being a 3D game running on Sega’s (for the time) extremely powerful Model 3 Step 2 hardware means you’re not going to be able to run it on that 8-year old laptop you play GGPO with.

JM: How does the Armor Break system work?

HK: Every character comes into the fight wearing armor. As you block, armor will weaken and if you’re hit by an armor-breaking move when your armor (either high or low) is at its breaking point, then whatever armor the character’s wearing on that part of their body will shatter, leaving them vulnerable to taking more damage. It’s only High and Low that are affected by this — High and Mid are kind of grouped together into one general upper-armor area.

JM: Oh, interesting. Do you know much about the process they used for creating the animations? Was it mo-cap based or mostly done by hand?

HK: There was actually an interview with Kataoka in the UK Sega Saturn magazine where he said only the character intros and a few other things were mo-capped. The rest of it was all done by hand, frame by frame.

JM: Something I have to ask about: There’s a mechanic in the game that increases recovery on moves if you keep using the same one over and over again. What are the details behind that?

HK: I think that was a system they didn’t really mention much for whatever reason. Kind of a weird sub-experiment that they did.

The “Stun Subtraction System” (or SSS for short) is a unique feature in Fighting Vipers 2 that forces players to add variety to their pressure game. Every time a player blocks a move, the game checks the last 16 moves used by the attacking player. The more times the attacker’s used the same move within that 16 move window, the less blockstun the defending player has to wait through before getting a chance to counterattack. Use the same move too many times, and the opponent will eventually be able to recover fast enough to punish previously safe attacks.

JM: So is there any way to play this game in 2014 without going to Japan?

HK: There are Model 3 emulators which run like ass on my system, but I hear they do a pretty good job from people with machines powerful enough to run them. I’m not up on PC specs, but my fairly recent laptop with an i7 and an okay laptop graphics card can’t handle it. You need something high-end to run it.

If by any chance the guys behind the emulator want to add GGPO for Fighting Vipers 2, I’d be tempted to upgrade my machine. Not even joking.

JM: So, any final thoughts on Fighting Vipers 2?

HK: Oh man. This game…if you’re willing to put the effort into learning it, Fighting Vipers 2 is ridiculously fun. The thing I like the most about it is how relentless it is. If you’re playing it well, there’s almost no downtime in the action, something is always happening. You constantly have to look and react. There’s never any long pauses, there’s never a moment where you’re just trying to inch in and get offense going, you’re always just going in on the other guy and vice versa.

This was a game I've always wanted to try (and I wish sega would've been more committed to); i know what I'll be doing for the next couple days.

ps: please do more articles like this; one also exists for SamSho5 Special and Breaker's Revenge.

The chances of that are pretty high considering that 98 is the updated release. It's going to be pretty cool to finally have them both on steam but I wonder if they're going to use netcode similar to KOF XIII (Ew) or closer to MS3 instead (With GGPO).

It's also gone from EU psn.

Sucks, but not a huge loss considering it's purpose. Netcode and other online features was horrid iirc, and the psx version had the nice extras (albeit censored/changed up) that this port (cps3) didn't.
Title: Re: fighting games news that dont deserve their own thread
Post by: S.D. on September 11, 2014, 03:15:13 pm
Other than SP Story the PSX version is vastly inferior, not only tons of frames are missing and you have to deal with monochrome stands but also all the new supers from the revision are missing (Even though the game has all the new characters),

I'd rather not trade better gameplay for a couple of bonus features.
Title: Re: fighting games news that dont deserve their own thread
Post by: Niitris on September 11, 2014, 03:51:15 pm
I don't deny the arcade port being the better option, it's just too bad they weren't able to take full advantage of the superior gameplay. Wouldn't be a problem for offline play for obvious reasons so there's that.

Title: Re: fighting games news that dont deserve their own thread
Post by: henk on September 25, 2014, 01:02:44 pm
Did you even try Love Max's netcode, though? That argument just doesn't work, because it has one of the absolute best damn netcodes out there.

First time I've played online was with a japanese player and after the initial slow synch (if you've played any other modern ArcSys fighter you are familiar with this) there was at most 5-6f of input lag, which is like the average I put up with in PC #Reload against folks in the East Coast, which is where I am.
I had to friend the guy so I could set up cameras to test and confirm results to /asg/. It's crazy.
Soon after, went on TheBrett's stream lobby and there was very, very little lag in general, despite being entirely West Coast-dedicated.

This game and UNIEL are pretty much the high points of fighting game netcodes at this point.
I can only hope Xrd's meets my expectations.

So no, there doesn't seem to be a logical reason besides ArcSys fucked up. I hope UNIEL doesn't end up the same way.
Title: Re: fighting games news that dont deserve their own thread
Post by: S.D. on September 25, 2014, 09:41:59 pm
Yeah, the netcode was fine as long you didn't skip the intro.
Too bad it took a while to test the netcode since PSN got hacked a couple of days after the initial game got released.

Anyways, UNIEL's netcode isn't that amazing, I can't finish Seth combos/unblockable setups so fuck it.  I can do everyone else's just fine, even Hyde's triple rekka combos.
Title: Re: fighting games news that dont deserve their own thread
Post by: henk on September 25, 2014, 09:54:22 pm
UNIEL's might not be amazing, but it was miles beyond BB and P4A, that's for sure.
And at least matches against other countries are playable on it.
It's kinda like PC SSFIV pre-Ultra where I could fight France and even Russia with very little lag, where on consoles it'd just explode.

If only ASB didn't have ass netcode, then maybe I'd still play it despite everything else. I miss it. ;~;

Samurai Shodown is getting a new title!

The good news: it's not a pachinko. The bad news: it's not a fighting game, but a mobile hack'n slash. The worse news: it's Korean.

"Ono: That's what I've always been telling the company too. But at the end of the day, there are just some brick walls that a salaryman can never overcome *laughs*. For instance, if a game doesn't sell over 2 million copies, then we'd have to put the brakes on any plans for a sequel. All that means is that we weren't capable enough. And all we can do after that is to reflect on the experience, take what we can learn from it, and try to apply those lessons on some other title."


Yeah..because it is impossible for Capcom to create a new fighting game that does not need to sell 2 M copies and does not need to be x million dollars expensive.

Goddamn sell your licenses already to developers who are able to create great fighting games for less budget costs and don't make us fighting game players hesitate to buy a game because it is full with stupid dlc crap.
Title: Re: fighting games news that dont deserve their own thread
Post by: Niitris on October 08, 2014, 12:55:50 pm
Not as easy as it sounds.

Even if they were to make a budget title, programming for it is expensive. Then they have to make something with PS4/XB1 worthy visuals. Only way they would break even is if they made Super-Deluxe versions and even then, they'd have to make new assets for those games. They would've made a new DS years ago if it was that simple.

That said, I do think they're underestimating their own branding power because if done right, Darkstalkers would sell. But of course "done right" is not something I have much faith in regards to current-day Capcom. Best case scenario: a hypothetical Capcom All-Stars for PS4/XB1 (more realistic possibility) revitalizes the interest in some of those IPs as standalone titles.
Title: Re: fighting games news that dont deserve their own thread
Post by: "Bad News" Hoffmann on October 08, 2014, 01:01:41 pm
Maybe they should just give the license for Darkstalkers to Arc System Works and see them making profit. These guys do all the dlc shit too but at least they provide one good fighting game after another.
Title: Re: fighting games news that dont deserve their own thread
Post by: S.D. on October 08, 2014, 07:56:59 pm
I would've bought Resurrection but the fact that it was a straight arcade port with no extras (What Iced said, plus Dee, the Tower of Chaos stage, character boost mode, and all those neat things wouldn't hurt either)
Title: Re: fighting games news that dont deserve their own thread
Post by: Just No Point on October 08, 2014, 08:02:37 pm
Yeah. Me and my friend bought the game but still play DS Collection when we play local 2 player. Not having all the characters really hurt the game :(

Post by: MightyKombat on October 08, 2014, 08:21:51 pm
And that the only DLC was shit you'd end up never looking at or being able to look at really hurt. No one cares about ingame arcade decorations for DLC when PSX version roster or Dee coulda been a thing (They made Oboro Bishamon playable in this VS1 when you couldn't in the original VS IIRC)

A really dumb part of me wonders if DSR was flatout sabotaged so that Capcom wouldn't feel obligated to make DS4.
Title: Re: fighting games news that dont deserve their own thread

They have the source code, not to mention loads of experience repackaging things (more than any company I have ever seen, and Nintendo has rereleased SMB3 no less than 3 times) so I don't understand why we didn't at least get PS1 DS3 with full frames of animation and sound quality that isn't ass.



Then again they couldn't even do that with JoJo HD and that was a straight-up port of the DC version, so again, why not Chronicle?

Skullgirls.

If they released a Darkstalkers game with a similar quality to Skullgirls but thrice the characters, they'd easily manage to sell thrice as much as Skullgirls did, and that's being pesimistic. They don't need to sell zillions to make a profit.

People wanted arcade-accurate so apparently reworked roms from the PS2 Vampire Collection were the way to go.
If Backbone were the ones to handle a VSav rerelease it would've been Chronicle since they liked to work off of DC ports (see MVC2 and HDR), but it wouldn't be close to any arcade version and nobody would take it seriously. (see HDR's classic mode)

Which kinda sucks because I'd rather take being able to play any incarnation of all the characters than having an intentionally cut roster and busted shit, but whatever.

I know. I just did a mistake by copy-pasting, just meant HDR's classic mode. Editing now.

EDIT: Actually, while you're here, I got a question. This is about CVS2, though.
Kinda off-topic, but I ask this because I know local folks here will avoid PS2 CVS2 like the plague if they wanna play seriously but will jump to any DC or arcade machine to play it. Wasn't the PS2 version identical? I mean, the game had cross-platform online multi in Japan, so I was wondering.

The reason why I felt like mentioning this is because it also has a special DVD included that contains tournament footage of Final Fight Revenge straight from Mikado.
So if you live in Japan or know someone who could get it for you, you can get to experience cool sounds and competitive sights of some wonky ass game.

So yeah, if they succeed at obtaining the licenses (and if they were serious about this), we may see a new fighting game. I'm a fan of the whole Idolm@ster series, but doing a fighting game out of it seems kind of weird.

Technically it did. (NeoGeo AES)
But it'd be great if we had a proper home console release.
Like, not fucked up due to last second censorship slapped onto it.

An uncensored port of VSP with netplay would be a cool thing for PS3.

1 - I totally disagree. The only thing better in the second game are the boss fights, which are impressive. Outside of that, it just removes everything that was good in the original (team mode, multiple routes) and adds unnecessary stuff (like downgrading weapons).
2 - Really? Didn't knew it.

http://www.hardcoregamer.com/2014/12/18/marvel-vs-capcom-origins-to-be-delisted-from-psnxbla/124463/

Bad news for Marvel vs. Capcom fans who still haven’t managed to pick up Marvel vs Capcom: Origins for some reason, as Capcom announced today that the game would be removed from PSN on December 23 and from XBLA on December 31. No word on why the fighter — an upgraded compilation of Marvel Super Heroes and Marvel vs. Capcom: Clash of Super Heroes — will be removed just over two years after release.

There are no plans to bring the game back to the services, so those who want it but don’t yet own it would be wise to download/purchase it as soon as possible.

Prototype of Justice League fighting game:

http://shoryuken.com/2015/01/24/footage-of-double-helix-games-unreleased-justice-league-arena-fighter-surfaces-online/

Sometime around 2010, Double Helix was hard at work on a Justice League fighting game for [PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360]. This title was supposedly a tie-in to the Justice League movie helmed by Australian director George Miller (Mad Max, Happy Feet) that never surfaced. This, combined with the fact that DC Comics’ parent company eventually bought what was left of Midway Games to form their own fighting game developer – NetherRealm Studios – meant that the game never saw the light of day.

I never had any problems with the game when I was with both my old NVIDIA 9800 GTX+ and my current 560Ti.
I'm also running on an AMD CPU, a very outdated Phenom II X4 830.

I didn't see this announced at all in the fighting games section, nor in this thread, so I suppose it's safe to put this here.

Anyway, In December, during C87 in Japan, a new Touhou Fighting game demo was released. Here are videos of it, and the wiki page of the game for some story and translations:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2Gp_oftUXs4
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r3S8IQ_sWrQ
http://en.touhouwiki.net/wiki/Urban_Legend_in_Limbo

As you can see they use the same engine and sprites as in Hopeless Masquerade, except that the artist for CG is no longer alphes, but someone else, and the gameplay doesn't seem to work on popularity nor religion anymore (plus other spellcards and moves too). Current announced characters:

- Reimu Hakurei
- Marisa Kirisame
- Kasen Ibaraki (yeah, the hermit for Wild and Hornet Hermit)

Don't know anything yet of its current gameplay, I need to play it first. I'm currently downloading the demo from the video. There's an update in the tasofro.net website, so you should grab it too.

The stages are awesome in that game but the characters look awfully bad in motion. At least the next KOF is going to be in full 3D so I expect them to not to use prerendered sprites for that one.

I don't know how to feel about this, a company blatantly rips off their assets and gameplay to make their own fighting game and a year or two later they end up in charge of the next KOF? Could've gone with a more legit company for that but eh, whatever I guess.

DON'T PLAY WITH ME

someone in the comments said:
Initiate Capcom-Protocol:

-Pretend to care about an old gaming-franchise that fans love
-Tell everyone you have great ideas
-Scatter cameos throughout other upcoming games
-Release a teaser trailer for the new game
-Announce HD-Ports of the old games
-Tell everyone to buy it to make the game of your wishes reality shortly before the HD-ports come out
-Wait a year
-Say that sales weren’t good enough, no matter how bad or unnecessary the port was or how the price was, it's always the fault of the franchise
-Take the next old franchise, start over
Well an HD version of Project Justice on any platform newer than the Dreamcast would be amazing all the same thank you very much.

Yeah, I'd buy the hell out of Project Justice HD (I don't care about 1 or 2 that much, they haven't aged very well), it would be cool if they could keep the content they cut from the JP version though.

I have yet to see a fighting game on PC that has better netcode than their console counterpart.
That's because there are barely any (left) that allow for comparison, though.
SSFIV AE netcode was pretty boss. It was very stable for the most part. Also I barely lagged against russians and I'm in East Coast. lol
You could argue that Ultra's is a mess but that's mostly because of two reasons: different management and the fact that Ultra itself is a mess. :V

also lol SFxT, it was barely better

But like for Skullgirls, BBCSEX, even the KOF PC ports, online play for PC is generally more stable than on consoles. It's just a thing.
Title: Re: fighting games news that dont deserve their own thread
Post by: Niitris on May 19, 2015, 03:56:42 am
KoF XIII, though to be fair it's not that much better.

With +R's strict timing on moves, 'playable' would be best case scenario. Even so I doubt netplay will be touched.

So now GGXX AC+R has its own steam store page: http://store.steampowered.com/app/348550

And an ARCSYS rep at the forum basically confirmed that they have a LOT of titles in queue for a steam release, and not only Blazblue or GG related so guess they'll eventually port Xblaze and Persona 4 Fightan?
Title: Re: fighting games news that dont deserve their own thread
Post by: henk on May 22, 2015, 04:05:08 pm
Most likely XBlaze. Steam has quite a bit of visual novels now, and it would make sense to bring that over.

As someone who started playing P4U2 again I'd love to see and play it on PC dunno if I'd wanna buy it and the DLC all together again unless they made a big bundle. And there's a lot of shit to be had. (only got the DLC through PSN sales because holy shit I'd end up having to pay as much as the fucking game at full price)

And as much as I personally fucking hate CPEX, if it was on PC I wouldn't hesitate to buy it just for the fact that hey, they're giving PC a chance.

Sadly, I have to say that I am not surprised that SNK pulled another pachinko machine instead of a new KOF game.
It is really sad, but that is SNK's current reality. And I am not sure they have the money nor the corporate will to get out of this position and go back into making actual games.

Yes, they need to stop making money, right.

............ Yes. Well not really, but since the question doesn't make a lot of sense, let's go with yes.
I don't think there are a lot of Pachinkos that play a full story. It's just a pretty sequence that keeps you playing and maybe interacts with your score at key points to make you try harder. I think some like the Saint Seiya ones just play through a video, but in KoF's case, AFAIK it's often just a fake arcade run with your score influencing the result. The "cutscenes" would take the same place as, for instance, the arcade ending of your character after beating the boss - and I guess the enemies change depending on your score. Then it loops so you keep playing. It's not a story.

This. Shen Long is just an April Fool's joke that was made and possibly used as inspiration for Gouken. But Shen Long was ALWAYS a mistranslation of the Shoryuken(I believe) but it came out wrong completely.

I dont know if youre being fucking sarcastic or if youre really an idiot. SHENG LONG ISNT REAL. MUGEN people want to atleast see how it would look like to play as him, so we create our own fan versions. Now get that your brain. SHENG LONG IS AN APRIL FOOLS JOKE.

I don't think his being sarcastic  , I don't think you need to blame him for being born in the year 1997 , its not his fault for not knowing about what old timers did  , this joke was relsed as an April fool in 1992 by EGM , and even then some people still believed he was real , thought the requirment to face him is crazy :

The fake method is to play only as Ryu and not take a single hit until M. Bison's stage. Then, the player must not hit M. Bison or allow Bison to hit the player for 10 rounds straight. After, Sheng Long would appear, to throw Bison off the stage and face Ryu. When facing Sheng Long, the timer will freeze at 99

Pretty sure the point of contention here is that Aumio seems to not have understood that the "welcome to 1997" was a classic "this is older than dirt" comment and actually took it as face value somehow and just assumed it was about his own birth year.
Because Aumio's dumb like that.

You know, a quick search for "Sheng Long" gives tons of results (first one, Wikipedia) mentioning that image as a hoax, so if he asked that here, is because either:
- he's a lazy ass that can't be bothered in typing a few characters in Google and get the answer by himself

Battle Fantasia's pretty good, though.
It the PC port fixes the shitty fucking netcode, fuck it I'm down. I am SO down.

Besides, Xrd on PC right now would be pointless since Revelator's gonna be on its way and people are gonna bitch about buying it again.

To be fair, Battle Fantasia got released when BlazBlue was announced in a time where everyone was waiting for a new Guilty Gear. BB reminding people of GG stopped any momentum BF was having.

The game is alright and the Gachi button gives the game a very interesting pacing, the graphics were good for its time too. The netcode was bad and the release is kinda sorta pointless because the game got emulated a long time ago so I can see why Steam-only babies be upset about this not being Xrd.

I can see why Steam-only babies be upset about this not being Xrd.

The funny thing is that it's a lose-lose situation for ASW. If they release Xrd -Sign-, Steam people will complain about having to pay for -Revelator- later on and releasing -Revelator- right now is impossible because the game is barely out in the arcades.

I personally want to see that P4 fighter game and Contra Hard Cops Uprising but dunno if Konami would even allow such port to begin with considering their current situation. HnK too while we're at it! So it can be played without requiring a PS2 and without emulators.

How is it lose-lose if Battle Fantasia is fun? It's that minority's fault for asking Xrd now when ArcSys themselves are testing the waters. (and not some randoms who acquired licenses)

The problem is that people would rather have everything immediately and they're not sure if it'll even be a guaranteed success because they're really new to the PC market.
Also, Steam's refund system kinda worries me in that regard.

I meant a lose-lose in regards to releasing Xrd. Waiting for -Revelator- to be released on consoles and later PC already gives them flak and releasing -Sign- on Steam would cause trouble too because it's already outdated when compared to the arcades (And it's kinda TOO late to release it now too!), even though there's no console release for -rev- and will most likely happen next year if anything.

The problem is that people would rather have everything immediately and they're not sure if it'll even be a guaranteed success because they're really new to the PC market.

They're porting Battle Fantasia right now, that has to be the BIGGEST risk they've ever taken on PC. What worries me in particular is that they might end up getting the wrong message if BF sells poorly. It already sold like shit when it was first released, and practically no one asked for this game when people were discussing what should ASW release next in that thread the ASW rep created at the gamehub when GGAC was released.

It's going to sell extremely poorly which makes me wonder if we'll even get anything else after BF comes out. I just hope someone at ASW is smart enough to understand that people just blindly spend money to buy stuff they don't want in order to send a message. I hope ASW is not pulling a Capcom where if something irrelevant sells poorly, they end up cancelling any future plans because of that, like with Darkstalkers and Megaman.

Also, Steam's refund system kinda worries me in that regard.

When something's shit, people will refund it. I don't see what's the problem exactly. The port will probably be amazing anyway, it will run fine and work fine and practically no one who doesn't know about BF will buy it so people will hardly refund it anyway.

I don't know anything about Xrd, Battle Fantasia or most of ASW's stuff, but that all simply sounds like they don't expect Steam BF to sell well, what they want to test is the process of selling a non-physical game - I mean not like complete n00bs, I understand they've Steamed games before, but just as a sort of benchmark. As in, they're not losing money for physical distribution anyway, so they don't need to expect huge sales.  They're just getting used to this distribution channel - marketing, feedbacks etc. They're making sure they can handle it, checking how efficient they are at it. They don't want to fail when they get to their big games.

A small and dedicated scene and events sounds like life support to me. I know that fact is hard to accept for the people who play Marvel though.

And I'm sure KI's main issue is the XBONE exclusivity, you might see better numbers once the game gets released on PC.
Whatever happened to that Ultimax update?
Arcsys (Or was it just Atlus) said they were going to make an important announcement for EVO (Even so, in case we get 2.0 as a patch the game won't be relevant next year and it'll most likely be replaced by either new BB or the GG update)

Edit:
Marvel top 8 getting just $80? Wow.

I mean sure somebody can take money out of there own pocket to add for the pot buttt marvel has no such hero this year :( good thing i (and most marvel players) dont play the game for the money but for the fun!. Mkx will also die out by next year if they keep fucking making these unnecessary patches that change characters meta completely

MKX will be there only because of WB money, I'm sure that's why Injustice was there last year, even though the finals were so bad and entries were lackluster.

Marvel's biggest issue is that it's a 2011 game with an update released on the very same year, with no dev support (Due to licenses and whatnot) and a very small variety of viable characters/combinations. The fact that the game is very unforgiving (One touch of death combos that are relatively easy to really hard to block or plain unblockable incoming mixups) and that there's only dedicated players hurts the entries even more.
Not every game can be Melee (As much as I hate Smash, the Melee scene has shown dedication and numbers)

This.

People at this rate knows EVO is mainly adds games based on how much the companies pay for them, even if the game comes out a few months before EVO to even make it EVO worthy to begin with(Killer Instinct is the biggest example only having 3-4 characters by the time it showed up on EVO)

And you pretty much stated all of Marvel's biggest issues which is why I mainly feel sad for the announcer's who love stating that Marvel isn't dead...when it honestly is. Marvel 2 is a different beast because it was done at time where there really wasn't much competition that was established as hard as Marvel 2 was and also no real way to get patches and everything. Marvel 3 was born in a different time where there is PLENTY of other fighting games on the market and having developer support is a must. But holy shit, 7th place is only getting $81 bucks? That's...pretty damn pointless.

Nesica version, was never released on consoles.

MKX will suffer the same fate as the last two NRS games, they've done everything just like their previous entries (shit netplay, touching the game too much, etc). It's like they haven't learned anything. And Marvel is going through the cycle that all games do; it's not novel anymore and interest has decreased. It's becoming a game where the dedicated few will remain (what S.D. said), process would happen faster if it wasn't a Capcom fighter and whatnot.

Unless Season 3 comes out (or MS does a huge cash in), KI will be dropped. Gameplay is anti-hype (it's everything I dislike about modern fighting games) and that goes a long way with people. PC will only help so much, especially with it being Windows 10 only.

Should have been a tad more clear on that. I remember going on FSD and checking what games would be on EVO and Mr.Wizard pretty much gave out stupid reasons for why certain games would be on the stage floor and why some wouldn't(When we know the main reason is cash). And Marvel 3 was given a ridiculous reason for why it's still on the main floor despite the fact that people are kinda getting sick of seeing it(Mainly for the reasons S.D. pointed out). I believe more people want different games on the floor rather than the same old so atleast there can finally be some different types of exposure.

Yeah I almost want to say that P4U is there only thanks to Atlus.

Yep and why Chrono Phantasma isn't going on despite how it had the greatest comeback in EVO history(I know, they didn't want the 2.0 update but come the fuck on, the 2.0 update came out in Japan months ago and even then, they couldn't get the game WITHOUT the update? They obviously won't play online on the stage floor)

Marvel 2 is a different beast because it was done at time where there really wasn't much competition that was established as hard as Marvel 2 was and also no real way to get patches and everything.

Well, it's that and the fact that there weren't many fighting games back then so those games stayed relevant for a handful of years. Now? Not so much.
Of course. The last 10 years has mainly been Capcom dominated even with the typical Tekken, DOA and SC coming out from time to time. It doesn't help that Marvel 2 just looked alot more fun to play and wasn't as broken in the actual fighting aspect(From what I've been told, only Iron Man had a reliable instant kill combo unlike Marvel 3 where everyone had one) so the game was able to thrive.

Marvel is the most viewed because it's always on prime time, by the time SFIV finals roll around it's super late on the East coast and people who have responsibilities just stop watching (And it's still considered as the biggest event, bigger than Marvel).
But yeah it's as simple as that, I mean sure there's some interesting moments (Everyone cheering from JWong last year) but the fact that it's the most viewed because it's on prime time is pretty obvious.

Mr.Wizard is dumb and has been doing his usual retarded posts on twitter about stuff like Xrd being less important thank MKX, He said that the time slots were decided because of prize pools and entries.. when the numbers don't lie and Xrd has more entries and a bigger prize pool than both Marvel and MKX but hey, WB money, plus we all know that he always gives anime games an early slot, same for games he doesn't care about like KOF and Tekken.

I can understand where dude was coming from because thats how i felt when TJ Combo was being changed all the damn time in KI to the point where specific commands don't cooperate the same anymore which imo screwed him up but i still play KI since hes not the only character i use.
Point is sonya hasn't really been nerfed or have been changed in that recent update so why the fuck is dude worried about it.
Tanya needed those nerfs and Kitana actually needed those buffs. Balancing a game is not a easy task to do especially with that many characters in the roster.

I can understand where dude was coming from because thats how i felt when TJ Combo was being changed all the damn time in KI to the point where specific commands don't cooperate the same anymore which imo screwed him up but i still play KI since hes not the only character i use.
Point is sonya hasn't really been nerfed or have been changed in that recent update so why the fuck is dude worried about it.
Tanya needed those nerfs and Kitana actually needed those buffs. Balancing a game is not a easy task to do especially with that many characters in the roster.

You completely missed his point, he even stated in there he knows Sonya actually got buffed.

His main problem is the fact that NRS just cannot leave well enough alone so that people can actually adapt and get ready for change, instead, they are forced to change about every few weeks or so. He stated examples where Scorpion players pretty much lost their BnB's and couldn't adapt to the changes and lost DAYS before a Major.

NRS isn't learning from what caused people to drop MK9 and Injustice and falling into it again.

2-3 weeks is more than enough time to learn the changes in the characters for a tournament. Thats if he was passionate about the game in the first place. Seems like its a job to him like he only playing because the prize money at evo.
NRS is just trying to balance the game out before Evo if you owned the game and have played Tanya and Kitana you would understand why a patch is needed.
If scorpion was op in the game people would've complain about it and would think hes only that good because hes Ed Boon favorite character. I play against Scorpion a lot online his bnbs look the same to me as they were before.
Whats so hard on adapting to the changes.

Edit: Why would you not expect changes in the game more often when dlc characters is still being released for the game.
Those changes could be because predator is coming out next week. Patches also get people to continue playing the game to see if it helps the character you use, to make it easier for you to win matches.

Marvel is the most viewed because it's always on prime time, by the time SFIV finals roll around it's super late on the East coast and people who have responsibilities just stop watching (And it's still considered as the biggest event, bigger than Marvel).
But yeah it's as simple as that, I mean sure there's some interesting moments (Everyone cheering from JWong last year) but the fact that it's the most viewed because it's on prime time is pretty obvious.
That's some pretty specious reasoning there. It could just as easily be turned around into "Marvel is the most popular game so it gets the prime time slot", which isn't any more true than the reverse. There's probably some additional viewers it gets, but it's not like people are being forced to watch it; people aren't going to watch something they're not interested in, just because it's in the primo slot.

Except he kinda has a point considering DOA5LR got around 10K viewers at one point during a Major which really hasn't happened before at all, which someone contributed to people simply waiting on the next event altogether.
So while you did say it could be one or the other, considering how many times I've seen people and announcers even say "Marvel isn't dead" and stuff like it, there must be a big incentive for people to believe Marvel 3 is losing steam fast.

I don't disagree with your reasoning, I see how it works the other way around. I'm honestly just grasping at straws given the awful record Mr.Wizard has relegating games he doesn't like to early slots on Sunday or just Saturday. Thus, the only way to really measure how the game is doing is by amount of entries, and again this year Xrd surpassed these other games but it was scheduled for the same time slot he gives to anime games/KOF/everything else.
I mean, the moment KOF's entries started to wind down, bam, finals on Saturday (Which was fine, the game doens't have dev support anymore, and well.. almost same issue as Marvel)
 
so why the fuck is dude worried about it.
He explained it. In depth.

At the end of the day, Evo is a U.S. major that happens to grab world attention. The only way Marvel and SF gets the boot from their slots is if games that are overwhelmingly more popular demands it's slot (Melee is probably the closet I've seen to this and even that didn't do it). Also, I hear Anime (Xrd) has it's slot because it's most convenient for Japanese viewers. Reason (poor as it may be) should just be left at that, instead of giving contradictory bullshit (http://shoryuken.com/2015/01/23/joey-mr-wizard-cuellar-discusses-evo-2015s-lineup/#comment-1813733981) that leaves room for people to rightfully criticize anyway.

snip

Truth of the matter is, even in the the tournament circuit, people have gaming preferences. And people are more serious about some games than others (some people play SF and Marvel because they're sheep who only play what's popular). Some people will endure NRS's patching frequency because the love the games that much. Others (a greater majority) will lose interest and leave.

When a game's changed it effects the entirety of the game, especially when it's good characters. What you know gets thrown out of the window, rendering your practice time null. Easy to become discouraged when it happens too often. Sometimes you have to live with cheap shit being in the game and hope for the best. You can't get a definitive evaluation of how good characters after a month anyway.

Post by: S.D. on July 04, 2015, 01:24:24 pm
As Viscant explained throughly (Which from your post is clear that you don't understand), even if your character remains good or whatever, one has to constantly adapt to new match ups (These huge game play overhauls are released a week apart or so, it's ridiculous) , moves that were easy to punish can be had to punish now, you have to learn a new match up and gain information that might be obsolete in a week or so. Everything changes, range of normals, frame advantage, etc so it's impossible to keep up or take a game seriously when it's not given time to evolve and devs take away things to explore (And this is the complete opposite from the whole UMVC3 situation, that's when constant patches are too much, heck some people can't even keep up with BB's updates and I'm sure that Skullgirls is also guilty about this, but that doesn't matter since the only people who play that are the super dedicated fanbase). You're taking an extremely defensive attitude and you're clinging so desperately about the whole "Sonya is good, I don't see why this "dude" complains about it", that shows that you really didn't read or understand his point.

And yeah, good call on that post , Niitris. Still, what? 8AM EST is 12PM JST, hardly prime time in Japan, not to mention that it would be Monday already?

The article said:

Okay, what is this recurring argument in the gaming-industry-that-isn't-fighting-games (as well as ex-fighting-game-people-ashamed-of-doing-fighting-games) that half circles and dragon punch motions are any difficult ? It doesn't come naturally the first few times you play, sure, but it's easily learned and you never lose the muscle memory. It's not automatically hard just because you can't do it immediately after picking up a controller for the first time in your life. And it's a bold faced lie to imply that those controls are the reason it takes a year to master a new fighting game.

"The problem is, it can take so long to get good at them – anywhere from three months to a year, by Killian’s estimate – that he finds them difficult to easily recommend. His new game, Rising Thunder, removes one of the biggest hurdles by mapping special moves to ordinary button presses. “I’ve seen it short-circuit that kind of path, going down from six months to two weeks. And I think that is the kind of thing that people are going to be willing to put the time into, because it’s fun along the way.”
I don't know about him, but it should take like a week at most to get the button combinations down.

The first part of the text seem to want you to relate to how difficult it can be to learn all of Tekken's combos and several tight one-frame links, but then you keep reading and bam, his super solution is to access special moves with a single button press. All he's doing is JoJo All Star Battle's easy chain (mash L to get the equivalent of L-M-H-special move-super move).

Wouldn't use Tekken's movement scheme; game moves like shit unless you dash all the time.

He's talking about removing execution requirements so that entry-level players can enjoy the mental part of the game. And not endure the tedious routine of mastering commands as part of the learning process.

The reason no one gives a fuck about "simple mode" commands in those fighting games (Including that Umineko FG that dubs it as "Princess mode", heh!) is because they often give you access to only one variant of the move or they disallow constant access to it and can only be pull off as part of an automatic combo. They just don't give you any freedom at all.

Games built up from the ground with simple commands in mind are a different beast altogether. There's a reason why Smash Bros works fine after all (And Super Sony Brothers too but that game failed for tons of other reasons).

But if we're talking about casual players that don't know how to perform the full command, I don't think that makes a lot of difference for them. They just mash the button until it comes out anyway, they're precisely not on the level of picking the light Shoryuken over the heavy one because it combos better. That's the whole point.

The problem with Simple Mode controls is that while it takes away a major hurdle to mastering a fighting game, it also takes away the sense of achievement you get from mastering a fighting game. Spending an hour working on a combo or something makes you feel like a champ when you finally get it; I think reducing command specials to 'press butan receev hot fiyah' puts a heavy dampener on that. Sure, casual players might enjoy being able to do all the fancy stuff straight away, but on the flipside they get less enjoyment out of it, then there's less to spur them on to learn more about the game.

In an ironic twist, I think the way they handled Ryu in Smash 4 is a great way to address it; provide the easy mode input, but design the character around effectively leaving free damage on the table for not using the true input.
Title: Re: fighting games news that dont deserve their own thread
Post by: Byakko on July 21, 2015, 11:47:33 am
Simple mode would just be on entry level, complete newcomers who just want to mash buttons and see pretty fireworks. Few of them would stay long enough to want that feeling of accomplishment (but they might come back to it once in a few months and see it like a game of Smash), and those who do can switch to normal commands, they don't have to keep simple mode forever.

Killian points out that the genre’s popularity has surged as the games have become more accessible. Modern pros have a tough time executing fireballs in the Street Fighter 1, he says, thanks to that game’s frame-perfect requirements. “They relaxed that input in Street Fighter II, and all of a sudden the game caught fire,” Killian says. “Obviously, that was a sensation, and it bled into things like canceling and whatnot, and it’s been sort of a linear progression of these games getting easier and easier from the execution side, and every time they do that you get a bump in popularity – not necessarily because the game is any better or worse, because more people are able to have that experience.

If the aim is to get newbs into fighting games, simple specials aren't enough; as already stated they existed for years (KoF 99 PSX as far back as I can remember). The most satisfying part of fighting game execution (combos) isn't directly attended to by mapping "Hahduuken=X." Sounds like it's as easy as 'make one button combos' right?

Problem is as most people know, combos alone is not how you play fighting games. One has to learn the entire package and that's not something you can band-aid by having simple combo commands. The bolded worked because combos were still unheard of in the genre and it was about knowing your moves. One you knew how to do them, it was a matter of learning how to play and not just 'doing things.' Smash worked because it took those same commands and designed it's gameplay around making them easier. Now everyone's thing is trying to make some easy to press comeback move. Fighters today are designed to go for 'max combo damage' at any opening. Already stated why that's not such a simple solution.

Myrid of other semi-unrelated reasons why fighters aren't an easy genre to get into. You can only do so much to make execution less problematic but those things don't change actual sparring know-how, learning the importance of every move, the one-on-one mentality, etc.

Finally, I think it should just be accepted that not everyone are into fighters to "fight" because there are other reasons to play them. Unless the focus is squarely rooted in the competitive scene (which in this case it is), just make a game with a healthy amount of content.

Def Jam FNY imo was one of the best beginner friendly fighting game i've ever played. it's shame most developers just want to make a standard 2D fighting and don't want explore the 3D system like it did.

I liked Vendetta more but FNY was definitely a good game too.

mvc3 had an easy input mode and nobody gave a shit. here's fucking seth killian explaining it
[youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jYqE2iz1TVU[/youtube]

Quote
He cites Marvel Vs. Capcom 3 and Mortal Kombat as examples. Killian says Capcom hasn’t released any MvC balance patches since one was released a few weeks after the game’s launch, and now the meta shows it could probably use one.
that's a really bad example since capcom can't patch the game

They had plenty of time to try and implement patches before Marvel took everything back...

You know... They've been hiring people to create models and animations for a fighting game, and then somebody with half a brain says "we're going to run out of money, so let's use what we have to plug a Pachinko or Pachislot, it'll make money to keep developing for the fighting game". But from the customer's point of view, we've been seeing them hiring for a fighter and then make a Pachinko, and it sucks.

Now, I've been playing Marvel's Spiderman Unlimited and Future Fight on my tablet for a while. Someone must have coded those with their feet while blindfolded, sure, but the content, the decent models, the decent animations, the sheer volume and variety, a lot of love was put in it. And yet, all of these assets are stuck with dumb mobile games that keep crashing every five fucking minutes. And you can bet they'll never appear anywhere else, because they've been made by such and such contractors and no one will pool all of this and make a "real" game.

There's also stuff like Saint Seiya, Dimps has been reusing the same shitty assets and adding newer and newer stuff and then the old stuff is completely at odds with the new stuff, but then a new Pachislot is announced (yeah, those things are everywhere) with brand new models and animations - done, of course, by different people. And the fighting games are, of course, never going to see those (or in other words, there will never be a fighting game or a "real" game that uses those).

So honestly, as long as SNK still keeps the goal of using all this to make a fighter and just tosses it in a Pachinko every now and then to make money and keep going... (whether the 3D quality is good or not) That's just the sort of things I don't understand why no one else does the same.

Oriental Securities will be the majority shareholder of the joint venture with 80% of the shares.  The CEO of Oriental Securities, Zheng Jianhui commented that the main reason for their acquisition of SNK Playmore is their vast number of game IPs and the all the tie-ins the characters are involved in.  In particular, he mentioned that going forward they aim to follow the “Marvel formula”, where the Marvel Universe has branched off into different spaces including comics, games, television, and movies to form a complete and synergistic IP profile.  He is also looking forward to collaborations with other Chinese companies to develop games, anime, manga, televisions, and movies in order to fully develop SNK’s intellectual property.

They didn't close down, they're a subsidiary of this big Chinese corporation now. Little different from how the vg company known as Sega is a subsidiary of Sega Sammy.

Best thing that could've happened to SNKP. Even had they somehow made it on their own, they've would've been pretty limited. This opens the doors for new possibilities.

[avatar]http://i42.photobucket.com/albums/e315/Tiger_Stripe/discordava.png[/avatar]You're gonna have to let us know how it is.  From what I played of the original MLP fan game version, these guys definitely know how to put together a solid fighting game, and that was just with Fighter Maker '02.  I'm really anxious to see what they can do with the Skullgirls engine at their disposal.

Probably worth giving it it's own thread once the crowdfunding campaign kicks off.

Had a lot of fun playing the build ain't gonna lie. I played as arizona aka AIR ZONA the cow with the wip. Towards the end of the night I was consistently getting games off the mane6 guys

5 button game. 3 attacks,light medium heavy, 1 "gimmick" special button. For arizona it is her whip attack. Last button is for grabs
So the way this game works is that you have your super meter like most games, which get filled by attacks and wiffed specials. Then you have 3 ex bars on the side thay can only be filled by successfully landing your gimmick move on your opponent. By inputting certain motions for specials plus the gimmick button, you get the ex version of that special. A lot of it is still in development, arizona has a unique move she gets when she has more that 2 ex bars where she does an instant teleport to the other side like wesker or nashs v trigger.

I don't have a lot to say about velvet the deer, but fuck her because she's cheap and does crazy combos lol. She gains ex bars...by simply being away from the opponent...and she's a zoning character. ...wtf


Anyways, arizona plays like a kof character. Fast, short hops and whatnot. She has really good short hop pressure that can lead to some crazy combos....oh and about combos. ..basically in this game...your short/light attack is your bestfriend..now from what I've been told this game plays and feels like skullgrillz, which is a given cuz you know, they are using the skullgirls engine and whatnot but ive never playef skullgrillz so I wouldn't know how or what that feel is like. You do light into medium into heavy into launch, you know like a basic vs game.  What makes it different from a vs game is your attacks in the air donw immediately knock your opponent down. The opponent falls down slowly and depending on what move you do,  they can recover out. This can lead into damaging combos with arizona. Counter hits are crazy..you can hit your opponent with any attack..and the window from what you can do until they recover is ridiculously long. You can jab counter hit, dash, lmh launcher etc.

Arizona has 3 specials moves. Her first one is a rekka dp motion move where she head bonks you into the air. You can combo from light version to heavy, light to medium, medium to heavy and etc but you can't do all three at once. Move is fast and has good range, the heavy version has armor. Her other special is like c viper seismo. Good range and fast. Her last special is her gimmick move. 3 version of the gimmick move, back plus gimick button will have her do her whip attack angled diagonaly and hit airborne enemies, her normal no input version hits grounded enemies (also hits airborne enemies but isn't angled upwards). Then lastly her down plus gimmick button will have her do her whip attack that hits crouching enemies. All of which are good but have deadzone area, which means that they don't grapple upclose, only in that specific area where the tip of the whip is (think of super skrulls command grab in marvel). Also missing this gimmick move is deadly...you are left super punishable and cannont cancel out into any move or super. I told the crew that it would be good if you could atleast cancel into super.
Speaking of super airzona super move reminds me of spencers bionic arm. Fast and and hits full screen. You can use another meter to enhance the super by inputing qcb 2 buttons on contact. Which reminds me of she hulks follow ups after her super in marvel.

Had an incredible amount of fun playing the build guys, trust me its good. Cant wait for further updates. Dont forget guys, the kick starter will begin next week!

Yea man game is great.  Forgot to mention that the juggling system in the game is very easy to abuse. You can juggle the opponent for ahwile depending in what attacks/combos you do. The damage scaling is also very solid

As with in CSEX, CPEX has the DLC characters in the roster already alongside the newest member 'members' if you count Lambda) and all other DLCs like colors, classic tracks, old stages and announcers are all unlockable in the game. Though the remaining DLC (extra announcers and lobby stuff) might still be DLC for this release.

I'm kinda expecting CPEX to be on Win10.
(as in only purchasable from the Marketplace and compatible with Win10, or at minimum Win8)
I dunno. Just a feeling.

The Professor said:
SNKPlaymore will be withdrawing from the Pachislot business, according to an unconfirmed report by Pachinko industry site Pachislot Village. According to the site, SNKPlaymore currently has no new Pachislot cabinets going through approval processes, meaning they don't have anything planned for relase in the next few months. Warranty and support for currently operating machines haven't been announced yet.

With the market declining in Pachislot, SNKPlaymore will be the 5th company this year that's disappeared from the Pachislot industry due to various reasons.

That said, KOF fans don't have much to worry as the company's videogame division will keep on running and won't be effected.

Ryan is still a scummy retard, how can it be "his" game when he didn't even made it top 8 this year, be got what? 17th place? He's just salty and playing really hard his heel card.
Maybe KBR is just enjoying a break after all the stress from EVO, I don't think he's forced to enter tournaments, credit's due where is due and he won this year's EVO, this is just a game and he has zero responsibility to do things for the community or for "the game" (The already dead game, mind you)

Maybe FChamp is just stirring the pot as another of his dumb publicity stunts and to bring more hype to an already dead game.
Title: Re: fighting games news that dont deserve their own thread
Post by: Renzo F on October 19, 2015, 05:50:45 pm
Besides the fact that KBR has nothing to prove to him, I read a FB post from him saying that in the 3 months he was stying at Japan, nobody really played the game, plus he just returned from a 3 day trip, and getting to the venue took him 3 hours. He wasn't in shape for playing.

People criticizing Nico for being "a diva" and showing up dressed in a yukata: "WTF, people cosplay whenever they want and I can't show up like this?"

And yeah, Ryan is an asshole. I can't stand his general attitude.
Title: Re: fighting games news that dont deserve their own thread
Post by: S.D. on October 19, 2015, 11:39:48 pm
If I recall correctly he couldn't make it in time to SCR because of his trip, that's why he didn't register in the first place. He was able to make it there on the last day.
And about he not being able to commentate properly, I don't know if he wanted to jump on commentary or someone asked him too, it's obvious enough that English isn't his native language so he also comes out as a racist scum in that video and just grasping at straws to stir up the pot.

Just let Ryan whine until he gets tired of it, (He's been saying countless times that he's done with Marvel so I don't get his video) he's moving onto Rising Thunder anyways.


I repeat, don't give FailipinoChump any attention, of course the rest of the FGC secret club is going to jump onto the bandwagon

The Last Blade 2 is coming to PlayStation 4 and Vita according to Sony’s Gio Corsi at the PlayStation Experience.

The Last Blade 2 was originally released in 1998 by SNK and has remained popular ever since. Corsi, responsible for Sony’s Third-Party Productions team, introduced the #BuildingTheList campaign to ask fans what games they should bring back, and apparently swarms of The Last Blade 2 fans crawled out from the woodwork to make their request.

No specific dates were announced, but it’ll be coming to PS4 and Vita.

You're telling me swarms of fans wanted a last blade port on ps4/vita and not something like idk kof /garou/metal slug/samsho hmmm ok. Why just the last blade 2? Can they only afford to port one game at a time?!? Will there be more ports like they did in ps3 psn??!? Is there a reason to get this at all when I can play this fucking game on my phone, plz give me a reason to play this on next gen if it's just a port. Net play? Fight Cade has that along with a leaderboard and replays FYI

But... if you didn’t have the team ready, why go for Indigogo so soon? I think that’s really important for me to understand. Why ask for money, when nothing was 100% ready to go?

R: Well, people need to understand something. The first Indigogo we launched did not raise a single dollar, and the second Indigogo we did raised $10, which I refunded. So there is no need to even address the first two Indigogo attempts. On the third attempt, we DID have the team, and we were ready. And because of that, we made our goal of $20,000.

Today, the folks over at Machinima launched the third season of Chasing the Cup, an online series dedicated to competitive gaming. This time around, however, they’ve shifted their focus from League of Legends to Mortal Kombat X, more specifically the recently concluded ESL Pro League.

The CW, which is owned by Mortal Kombat X publisher Warner Bros., has found success with various DC Comics adaptations, and looks to court the same demographic with competitive gaming. “We’re testing to see if this could be ‘sports for CW,'” said Rick Haskins, the network’s executive vice president of marketing and digital programs.

Post by: Xhominid on January 27, 2016, 09:48:53 am
I'm going to be frank this lineup disappoints and makes me just not care for anything in the EVO main lineup anymore.

Pokken is already something which I completely see as not tourney viable and is clearly Nintendo forcing cash to put it on the EVO stage, no question. It's a good fighting game from what I've seen, but nothing that shows it's a tourney-viable future ahead of it.

Seeing Smash WiiU AND Melee still in is honestly baffling to me. You have USFIV taken off for SFV and yet, both Smashes are still in. Just why?

Tekken 7 may be more complete than last year but it's still basically in Arcade which rubs me the wrong way since it's still not technically complete yet(like how Killer Instinct was still in tournaments despite Season 1 not even being finished).

And UMvC3 should seriously die at this point or be replaced with MvC2. I mean they keep talking about attendance but I believe most of it is basically a nostalgia boner to MvC2 despite UMvC3 seriously having not even close to the same longevity and it's only last year was a "surprise" but still being stagnant as hell.

Exactly. It was Ultra's last hurrah at EVO last year. Time for some fresh meat and Street Fighter V is it.

Pokken, on the other hand.... well, it's an odd choice. But, there isn't much out there at the moment that doesn't have a concrete release date yet. I'm guessing that if this flops, you'll see it take a hike in 2017 in favor of KoF 14, Blazblue Central Fiction or whatever else is out there.

I mean, realistically enough, as much as I want Marvel to die, there's nothing else to replace it (MVC2? Seriously?), we can only hope Capcom's next fighter (After SFV) isn't a huge blunder like SFxT so Marvel can die for good.
Also, I feel like plenty of people are salty about KBR winning last EVO so "Marvel still lives".

Three Nintendo games is way too damn much though, but the worst offender of the announcement is the ticketed and limited seating with an extra fee for finals, and the place is on the other damn opposite side of the strip (Also, the LVH is kinda far from the strip too, it's not even that great)

I really wish more people played SFxT to warrant a slot at evo, the game got better with the patch, but Capcom doing the DLC characters thingy, gems, among with other things just destroyed all the opportunities that game had to be taken more seriously. It would've been a fine substitute for USFIV since we won't see it anymore.

It's probably mostly because the playerbase doesn't overlap that much. Most of the meleetards refuse to leave their comfort zone and people who already moved to brawl in the past now plays Sm4sh and would never go back to melee.

Meanwhile, most of the USFIV players are probably moving to SFV next month.

You’ve chosen to include both major Smash games again. Why is that?

Mr. Wizard: The Smash community has proven time and time again that they are here to stay, and with the diverse number of crossover players, it was very clear that each game has their own following. It so amazing that a fifteen year old game can get record numbers, and so we decided to bring them both back.

Yeah pretty much. Also, Mahvel may lose it's prime time slot.

Seeing Smash WiiU AND Melee still in is honestly baffling to me. You have USFIV taken off for SFV and yet, both Smashes are still in. Just why?
Because they both have massive tourney scenes and active metagames and playerbases? I dunno you tell me.

That's not the point I was making so try again please.

SNK fans rejoice! We were able to confirm from two independent sources that SNK is bringing the massively successful Samurai Showdown Series back from the dead. According to our sources, SNK-Playmore, under the new parent company, has already started working on a new Samurai Shodown Game. The new game, which currently has a target release of 2017, will bring the series back to its roots, using 2D gameplay but with 3D models. An approach similar to what the Japanese company is currently doing with the upcoming The King Of Fighters XIV.

The new Samurai Shodown game is not the only thing this highly missed franchise is getting. One of our sources has informed us that the plan is for the game release to coincide with a new anime adaptation of the series as well.

Someone doesn't know how to read the "I prefer this game" posts and takes them way too literal.

That won't happen, not with half of the cast dead.
Zantetsu died but his offspring took over in the ending (So Samsho Hanzo), Yuki "died" (Not really, she can come back), Shigen died but Kotetsu took over, Mukuro got sent to a shmup dimension but that's a joke ending, so only Shigen and Zantetsu are really dead, but with characters already confirmed to take over them, that's two (Except not really for reasons I mentioned)... out of like sixteen characters, hardly half the cast.

Mukuro was killed by Kojiroh (Kaori) before Kojiroh fights Kouryu in her arcade mode.

As for Yuki, I made this as a NGBC-original Last Blade character concept...

(http://i.imgur.com/KYX32zc.gif)
Yuki as Kouryu "The Judge of Humanity" - Kouryu's Spirit is still resilient even if Hell's Gate is sealed for a few years, and it tries to use the Sealing Maiden (Yuki) as it's vessel and "judge" humanity for herself.

Base Sprite (KOF-style Yuki) by eFex, Edit by me...

P.S. If Last Blade makes a comeback, I like it to become the bridge for Fatal Fury and Art of Fighting characters. Though some of you might disagree, I like Last Blade's hypothetical sequel's plot revolve around the Jin Scrolls (from Fatal Fury) during the Bakumatsu-Meiji transition period. And make Moriya the main character, like Robert being the main character in AOF3.

Yuki "died" (Not really, she can come back)

Can she? From my understanding she's dead for good, since she sacrificed herself to close the Gate.

Yeah, the "half the cast" part was not meant literary. So, that's Zantetsu, Shigen, Yuki, Mukuro and Kouryu/Gaisel, and you can count Setsuna as being at least MIA as well (since the gate's closed he got sent back to Hades).

Of course he did, he's not gonna say "yeah, we were keeping it secret but we're also making another game too." That's up to corporate.

Also seeing his exact wording, it doesn't sound like a convincing denial. I mean, no choice but to take it at face value, but Playmore did say back then that they were hiring staff for a new SamSho in conjunction with the new KoF.

Google translation makes it sound like an action RPG based on doing combos that uses stuff from 94 to 13. I only know Marvel Ultimate Alliance Future Fight on Android from them, it's pretty full of just about everything with its own original story and it tries to use anything it can and come up with decent stuff that fits everyone, but as far as the RPG part in the "action RPG" is concerned, the balance is pretty bad and there are very few options to keep improving your characters significantly beside probably redo the same lower level missions over and over for ever (they tried a few things over the months but it failed and now there's pretty much nothing), plus it's pretty generic for an RPG (get EXP, increase level, increase stats, increase your default equipment, equip some special items that are very random and increase them). The art, 3D models, effects, and action are decent~good, and all the characters' animations show their personality just fine. They do keep up with the new stuff in the comics and movies and spit out new content of the same quality, though.
So basically, pretty and rather full but you might drop it after not making an ounce of progress for a while.

Woops, yeah, don't know why I mixed up the names.

correction, its called marvel future fight.

and yeah as someone who plays it regularly i must agree that the core game is awesome, the animations are smooth and nice and the gameplay is frantic, the story isn't anything new and is basically free promotion for the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but it does well, the gameplay is great but the F2P nature is what makes it almost impossible to beat for free without spending months of grinding and grinding and grinding, i just hope that if Netmarble makes another RPG like this with KoF they dial down on the P2W shit, it's annoying that i was progressing through the story just fine then BAM! its now tough as shit and i have to grind to progress forward

"Internal material for Garou MoW2 which was being worked on. A list of the characters that were planned, with newcomers on the bottom row - and Kain on the left." Yep, very informative (though it does confirm that it's WIP material for MOTW2).

He resembles Rob Python (http://snk.wikia.com/wiki/Rob_Python) a lot.

I'm more curious about the blonde wearing a suit. At first I thought he was Rock after he leaves with Kain, maybe another close member of the Howard family.

well at least it confirms that garo2 was being worked on, unlike what the other snk staffer said before; also no mr karate confirms that the picture posted in the kof14 topic was indeed fake (the othe guy saying garo was not being worked on can eb simply explained by that guy not knowing about it).

Oh, by the way, I looked at the interview around that picture out of curiosity, and Oda says "now, anywhere I go, I'm told 'make a Garou sequel !' and I just think there will have to be a day where we need to do one. And then there's the AoF series that ended without find a good spot as a fighting game, if the chance ever comes up, I'd like to make a new one."
But then immediately after that he also says "And I'd still like to make a Metal Slug and an Athena." so you go figure how much credit you can give this whole thing, if it's nothing but random wishful thinking.

mostly piracy, I remember that they pirated a prototype and not the final game , not very noticeable because they were almost identical, but then some tournament players would try to do things that were only doable in the prototype which uncovered them as being filthy pirates.

This is without a doubt "Kuan" (クアン), the apprentice of Joe Higashi mentioned first by Akihiko Ureshino on his blog and then given a name in Maximum Impact: Regulation A. According to Joe's profile in XII, "She is a thief who tries to pickpocket Joe. Impressed with her top class physical strength and her daring, he immediately dubs her his disciple and inspires the girl to live a new life learning Muay Thai". Even has the same pose as Joe Higashi (stance animation from XII)!

(http://i.imgur.com/vvE2e7v.gif)

This appears to be Rock, looking all nice and dapper. Influenced by Kain after he goes with him in search of information on his mother (confirming his ending to be canon). I am not sure the capacity in which he would have a played a role like this considering his regular attire version of himself was still playable. Makes me think how different this version of him could have played. Perhaps relying on Geese's influence more than Terry's here? Speaking of normal Rock, his sprite was slightly altered.

Angry Mob Games has announced Brawlout, a new Super Smash Bros-alike fighter currently in development for PS4, Xbox One and PC.

Due for release in Q1 2017, Brawlout is described as an 1-8-player platform fighter that puts players in control of a variety of animals fighting for the "pride of their people", and promises "the precision of violent fighters with a gorgeous animated style".

Online and local multiplayer is supported along with a full single-player campaign, with each animal said to have access to "vastly different combat styles". You can catch the first footage in the video below

"We're all fighting game fans, so we've built our dream platform fighter", said Angry Mob Games' CEO Bogdan Iliesiu. "We've heard what players miss from classic fighters and what they love about new ones, and Brawlout is designed to give people the best of both worlds, whether that's ruining friendships around the TV or going online to anger strangers in tournaments."

If you're heading out to this weekend's EVO, you'll be able to check out Brawlout's public debut in the Indie Showcase.

Smash community (particularly Melee, 4 gets a bit less flak) have a horrible rep. While I don't doubt some of it is witch hunting, most of it is quite deserved sadly. Lack of respect for other games, moreso than average anyway, has been a common problem to compound the more spontaneous conflicts.

Daigo was playing everyone at EVO when he was at the Red Bull booth.

It's bad to generalize but at this point, between the sexual harassing (Which apparently is more prominent than what Noel Brown does) from the last Smash events and Mew2king and gang putting top 8 on hold at that one event because "they had too much red bull the night before"... I don't know really.

And yeah, it's unfair to bring Leffen to this, because he's on a whole different level.

King of Fighters '94, Fatal Fury, and Samurai Showdown Coming to PlayStation 4

The first of these, releasing on October 27 on the Japanese PlayStation Network is none other than the King of Fighters 94. KOF ’94 will be released as part of Hamster Corporation’s Arcade Archives series. This means that it will be an emulation of the original arcade game, but with support for PlayStation 4 features such as screenshot and video sharing as well as uploading scores to online leaderboards.

Following after the the King of Fighters ’94, SNK announced that they would be also be bringing Fatal Fury: the King of Fighters, and Samurai Shodown to PlayStation 4 later this year. This is addition to Neo-Geo arcade classics Metal Slug and Alpha Mission II.

I don't particulary mind in this case since no online support and stuff, but why are so adamant about pushing what is quite frankly their worst grouping of games whenever they start something like this? I mean, if  they're gonna go with early stuff, at least make it KoF95, SamSho 2, and Fatal Fury Special; games that at worst, are decent and have some redeeming qualities.

The only thing '94 has that other games don't is the USA Sports Team, and it's not like 98 doesn't exist for that.

Maybe the first indie fighting game on steam that is developed is the west since skullgirls and looks somewhat interesting.

Punch Planet features 8 characters when its done and is a "Sci-fi" 2d fighting game.




Its a Greenlight candidate for now and just in a Pre-alpha stage, the demos I saw show just two characters in action. http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=791292597

Terrordrome 2 is in development, won't starring popular horror movie characters like Jason etc but instead classic monsters..think Werewolf, Mummy, Dracula, Killer Robot, Seaman, Lavaguy,sexy Vampiregirl, sexy Catgirl,cute ghostgirl......oh wait..I am just making crap up because it basically sounded like Darkstalkers.

Liked Terrordrome a lot for what it was and look forward if the guys behind it can make it more balanced and everything in their second game which will most likely be commercial this time.

So a couple of weeks ago I went to PAX Aus, saw an old professor of mine showing off student projects in the indie section. It reminded me of my own student project from three years ago. It was a Smash clone with grappling hooks, we called it Swing Kings. We only ended up getting two characters and three stages into it. I think the social media pages for it are still up, haven't checked in a while. It didn't look as good as Fantasy Strike, but it's about the same ballpark as projects from the year after.

We weren't paid for it of course, as it was part of our education, and even if we did release it commercially, the university would claim royalties on it. Unlike Swing Kings, though, people were PAID to make Fantasy Strike.

...I played a game that was exactly that back at CEO!
Was simply called Grapple Hook Fighter, got my attention because Sonicfox was super into the concept but piled up a huge list of gameplay concerns. lol



I guess now it operates on lifebars because back then it worked on percentages and if you landed in a death zone (typically the bottom of the stage), the stage transitioned into a lower level.

This time I will get it together without Engrish  and other mistakes, here we go:

Samurai Shodown VI for PS4 launches November 22 in the United States.


It is the PS2 version from 2005 with the additional characters not seen in the Arcade version , so basically nothing new at all. This version was included in the SS Anthology for PS2 in 2008, it was not sold seperately in the west.

It is ported to PS4 as a straight port without any online mode..because heeey nobody of us would like to get one of the best Samurai Shodown games with a online mode riiiite?

So it turns out Persona 4 Arena Ultimax arcades were just ordinary PCs that ...well looked cooler
And someone managed to crack them
So we can actually play it on PC now.A copy has been floating around the net for a while now.Unfortunately as this is the arcade version,there is no story mode or gallery or anything like that.
I ain't gonna link it as this technically is emulation,and this forum supports that,its still piracy,which this forum doesn't support,so you're gonna need to dig a bit on your own.
This could turn out great for people that want to get some more P4 characters into mugen,as the sprites and everything will be much easier to rip.

Title: 20° Atari Jaguar Fighting Game Thea Realm Fighters Discovered
Post by: "Bad News" Hoffmann on November 25, 2016, 11:10:39 pm


Thea Realm Fighters was originally developed by High Voltage Software, the company behind Fight for Life (3D fighter) and the port of NBA Jam: Tournament Edition to Atari Jaguar. On an emulator Thea Realm Fighters supposedly runs almost as slow as Fight for Life does on an actual Atari Jaguar console. On actual hardware AtariAge members have reported using various Skunk Boards to play the beta version of the game and stated that it is quite decent in speed. Your mileage may very well vary.

Nah. I was really just working on a new Bloody Roar 2 gallery today and had to copy some of the images from the old one from 2011 to the new one. I saw what I wrote there, remembered the Bloody Roar 5 rumors that happened here because of that fake twitter account and I found it funny and it reminded me how that MVC4 tweet some weeks ago by a random fgc guy caused just a lot articles and pages of forum posts about a possible MVC4.

Shinzankuro does the same thing because he is hyped just like I was for a new Bloody Roar back in 2011.

Its the same shit as back in then, just that it does not have an own thread now but is a flood of posts in the news thread. Are rumors even news?

A horror-themed fighter, Omen of Sorrow casts characters from myth and literature, with characters like Dr Hyde the Twisted Alchemist and Gabriel the Mongrel Knight fighting it out in traditional creepy locations like dingy laboratories and cathedral bell towers. From the short trailer and the artwork on its site, Omen of Sorrow draws major similarities to Killer Instinct with its character choices, drawing on classic horror tropes like the werewolf and the succubus to pad out its roster

Omen of Sorrow is a horror fighting game, in development since May 2015 by the best talent from SCL, with Art by the internationally acclaimed Genzoman (Double Dragon: Neon, Ultra Street Fighter IV, Hearthstone), Music by Francisco Cerda (Jamestown, Gunpoint).

 All the footage in the trailer is pre-alpha

Pachinko are like pinball and slot machines.

It's one of the primary forms of gambling in Japan (though it's not technically considered such), I'm not sure how successful these things based on video games are. It is easy profit though since they just re-use assets from the actual games.

That's news to me. With two of the three main global game console companies based in Japan, I would think that the consoles will do much better. Although it might explain the growth of mobile gaming and computer gaming in Japan...

And I think I can see why Pachinko games are profitable at the least.

That's news to me. With two of the three main global game console companies based in Japan, I would think that the consoles will do much better. Although it might explain the growth of mobile gaming and computer gaming in Japan...
The PS4 itself is selling on par with the what PS3 was selling at the equivalent point in the PS3's history, but actual game sales have been pretty anemic relative to the past (a good recent example of this is Final Fantasy XV (https://twitter.com/ZhugeEX/status/806559124163067904)). Mobile has just eaten away at everything, and the extremely high cost of producing a modern, AAA game certainly doesn't help.

It certainly feels like a huge shift in the industry is coming. The way things are right now just doesn't seem particularly stable or prone to lasting another generation.

Paco, a Pro Wrestling Frog with four arms was just revealed for the upcoming SmashBros like game Brawlout that is coming to PC, PS4 and XB1 next year


The game looks fun to me but I wonder why they choose weird animals as character choices. I would have tried to create characters that look similar to other video game or movie characters and look more likeable than Goro the Luchador Frog.

They don't have to be " too" blatant of course. That one Asterix game (Asterix XXL 2) had all kinds of video game characters ranging from Mario and Sonic to Sub-Zero and Baraka as enemies or bosses in the game and was no problem either. It is important tonot overdo it of course.

I don't remember any copyright problems for Broforce either while that game totally ripped off many action movies and characters.

That is literally never going to happen.  Melee is more popular than 4 for tournaments, KOF XIV doesn't even come close.  It's always the main event along with SF and that will never change.

Drop both smash games.

Those games individually are more popular than anything that isn't SF and when combined they are nearly equal, but you want to upset all of those people as well as everyone watching at home just because you personally dislike them?

I agree with dropping Tekken just because that game isn't even out on consoles yet, and prioritizing a game that half the population can't play just seems kinda...I dunno, I don't like it.  It's fine for events hosted in countries that actually have access to the game but since Evo is in the US it rubs me the wrong way to have that game as a mainstage one over games that have substantial support of their own and are actually available on console.

Because as already mentioned, it's easily the most popular game they feature. They're the "necessary evil" if people wanna see fighting games grow further.

That said I don't care much for how commercialized Evo has become, so I don't give much a damn about what games they choose. I don't particularly dislike Smash being at Evo, but I'll never quite get over the idea of it getting in over more niche titles that also have active communities. But will never do the same numbers for obvious reasons.

They'll feature the popular games at the expense of games that fall more in line with traditionalists, because $$$. They also feature Melee again for the same reason, even though yeah, they really shouldn't get 2 spots lol. Organizers at Evo should go and tell them which game do they want featured, but they won't because loss of viewers/entrants. Whatev, looking more forward to regional events.

Title: Re: fighting games news that dont deserve their own thread
Post by: Niitris on January 03, 2017, 06:54:57 pm
KoF was never a main stage game until XIII, so there isn't anything it can be compared to. And I'm not sure if there's entrant numbers for games in the pre-streaming days like Third Strike.

I mean, it's not as if there hasn't been multiple games of one series before (ST-Third Strike, TTT1-TK4), but that's when there were a smaller selection of quality games to choose from. To leave out sizable segments of the larger community (the kind of people who've built the genre into what it is today) because these two similar games have more demand isn't gonna jive well. But that's the nature of growing, bigger names sell.

Titlin about the SF5 entrants, that's actually the number that pre-registered and according to sources, 1K+ of those who pre-registered didn't show up for SF5 when EVO finally happened. So the number would be closer to the lower 4K-high 3K

And honestly, I stopped caring about EVO specifically because they care more for popularity and cash then trying to get niche games over with everyone else in their bid to become "E-Sports". This is the main reason why I hope EVO Japan doesn't fall into the same nonsense and can try and do what EVO America basically dropped to the wayside and feature more niche titles into the spotlight.

Even if the 1000 people did not show up SFV, smash4 and melee still had the most player and it would be just dumb to cut any of them.
Plus I dont understand what people expect from EVO Japan it will be the same thing. Every big game will still be there.

Probably because side tournaments for those games get double digit entrants at most and Smash Melee gets literally thousands.  Also Third Strike and KOF 98 are completely irrelevant, Super Turbo and Darkstalkers still get run to solid turnouts however.

That makes no sense.  Niche games don't bring in money or entrants compared to the popular ones, and they still get to be there as side tournaments anyway.  It sounds to me like you're upset that whatever game you like isn't popular enough to be mainstage, and I'm not saying that to be condescending either.  I think you don't understand how running a tournament, especially one of this size, works.

Remember the quote "Assumption is the mother of all fuck ups" because you clearly fucked up by making such a grand assumption.

I don't really care if the games I like the most are not popular(that actually makes it better for me so we don't get the typical stupid divisive fanbases like Final Fantasy and Sonic), the point I'm saying is that to have more people interested in the VARIETY of different fighters and help the overall FGC grow is more important than the money you get from a single tourney by catering for simply the most popular fighters at the time.

By simply showing off the exact same lineup in EVO Japan, it just makes it completely pointless past Japanese players don't need to toss around money to make the long trip and Americans have to(people inbetween mainly depends on where they are and how close they are to one or the other). What's the point of having the FGC be ruled by most popular games when most of the time, people may know and see the hidden gems and like those instead?

It's like saying that there should be absolutely no coverage of any other sport past Soccer, Football and maybe Basketball because the rest aren't popular enough which is pretty messed up for everyone else who wants to know what is going on in Baseball or Hockey.

Titlin did I even INCLUDE the Superbowl? Yeah, you can try and compare EVO and the Superbowl but you obviously know the main difference is that the Super Bowl is only for Football meanwhile the equivalent would be the Olympics, try again with the analogies.

Last time I checked, Street Fighter 5 AND Smash have their own specific tournies and World Cups that end AWAY from EVO. So yeah that doesn't even work to begin with, EVO may be the Superbowl in terms of people watching but the Capcom Cup is the NBA Finals.

Thank you for saving me a post.  The only difference in this scenario is that darts would be there and they would have a smaller channel airing them, they just wouldn't be on the main arena or aired on the main channel.

I counted Vega's Ultra 1, Ken's Ultra 2 and I know there's atleast one or two more but I couldn't remember them.

Doesn't help that the characters are a little too generic if they are going to copy specials and stages, then at the very least make the women unique...

China has officially signed most international treaties about intellectual property, but they are as strongly enforced as America's sodomy laws. It's not in the Party's best interest to curbstomp counterfeiting, bootleg items, cyber espionage and shameless ripoffs because they bring money to the country.

Interview with the developers (from Chile) behind that Omen of Sorrow fighting game for PS4 and PC that seems to be inspired by Killer Instinct

"Omen of Sorrow uses 4 attack buttons, plus a dedicated Throw button and one “Special” button. It’s aiming to be more fast-paced than, say, Street Fighter 4, but less busy than the Guilty Gear or the Marvel series. We definitely want that focus on pacing and the neutral game that makes classic 2D fighters so enjoyable to watch. We also would like just the tiniest bit of that agility and mobility that you find on most anime fighters.”"

^^ Tablet version trailer with touchscreen controls from 2015


2016 gameplay trailer/PC version


""Bite Bears" from his bookbag? That's just a small taste of the odd and unusual sights you'll see in FrightShow Fighter.

This is a fighting game like no other. There are 10 characters to choose from. Each has their own unique abilities, theme music, and bizarre levels!

At its heart, Frightshow Fighter has the feel of the fighting game classics, but with a fever dream twist that leaves you excited for more! "

The game got released in November 2016 already, never read anything about it, has some positive reviews on Steam and it looks like something fun for 5 bucks during a sale maybe. There is a demo of it on steam too the normal price is 9,99 bucks

Any thoughts after seeing that trailer?

Been there done that. One of the moderators there (And the wiki's author) started to tell me to do stuff I've already done (And specifically mentioned in my initial post) and then came up with fucking ridiculous ideas like increasing the volume of the 6th channel and not pay attention to the exported audio getting the 6th channel corrupted because "It doesn't have to make sense how the MT Framework handles the audio". As if the game magically repaired the 6th channel with info from fucking nowhere.

He's a fucking idiot and has absolutely no idea how computers work like (That wiki is just a copy paste of other MT mod wikis) and threatened to ban me from the sub the moment I told him that he was making no sense. That wiki was even missing vital information until I arrived to the sub and pointed out the wrong and missing parts of it. You're free to read the thread I made about the 6th channel issue there if you want to have a laugh at how thickheaded the dude is, it's easy to find.

I'm currently checking the audacity forums, a dude came up with a solution but now that solution outputs a different bitrate song and I need that fixed so I'm gonna wait for further replies there.

I can't believe they'd make those models, backgrounds, and effects and not actually use it, they have to be making something with it. But then again they have been for, what, a decade or something ? Checking out their shitty lineup of games since SFEX3, maybe it's something they've had on the backburner while they were doing small games to keep themselves alive, touching it up whenever they have 5 minutes. But they have to do something with it eventually, now that it's at this level. The backgrounds and the effects look like they'd want to compete with Tekken 7 at this point.

There's a lot of time and money invested in this prank.

We've received an unexpected amount of questions, so I'll answer,
1) "Sonnan Arika public reveal" isn't an April Fool
2) we'll show in-game footage of the fight
3) The April Fools was hiding that we've been using this game

Maybe we'll get 100 gavas when no one comes because everyone thought it was an April Fools ?
WOW. VERY FUCKING FUNNY 10/10
(no, I don't understand why he says "use this game", I don't get what that means, it's either a typo or a phrasing I don't know)
"Sonnan Arika public reveal" is the title of the video, and apparently "sonnan arika" is a play on word, more or less equivalent to "lolwut" / "wtf" / "no way", which was the name of an ad comic strip they had at some point.
100 gavas is, IINM, a notation system used by Famitsu, 100 being top score. Or something.
By the way, the words Street Fighter don't actually appear anywhere in the video. Just saying.

Checking the video again, the long text at the end is giving the info for the public announcement, and that the fight will be one round against Kazunoko. Kazunoko wasn't aware of that until he read this message just now. That's "the fight" being referred to.

After those three, I'm only hoping for Rosso. Loved his supers.

By the way, the words Street Fighter don't actually appear anywhere in the video. Just saying.

yeah, it could be fighting layer 2, that one had no capcom characters, right ?

the game itself is real but the fact that the company hid all evidence of its creation was the joke. There is also an event scheduled by Arika for April 1 in which 30 individuals will be able to compete against Kazunoko in the game shown in the trailer.

Even IF this weren't an April Fool's joke:

1. As mentioned, no SF characters are shown.
2. ARIKA has a history of showing awesome previews with their stuff and doing absolutely jack shit with it.

SFA2/3 rumor coming to Switch.

If it does, I'm hoping we're getting the Hyper Street Fighter Alpha like in the PS2 SFA collection. Its fun having to play so many grooves.

And I love playing Alpha 1 Guy compared to his nerfed Alpha 2&3 version.

Quote
Call of Duty, Battlefield, StarCraft, Farming Simulator and Warhammer are but a few of the established videogames series that animal rights organisation PETA has complained about over the years. It now seems Tekken can join that list too.

While Tekken 7 landed in Japan over two years ago, the seventh main series entry to Bandai Namco's esteemed fight 'em up—the first to feature on PC—is due this June on western shores. When it arrives, it'll come minus Roger Jr—the boxing kangaroo who replaced his similarly disciplined reptilian family friend Alex from Tekken 5 onward.

Speaking to VG24/7 at a press event, executive producer Katsuhiro Harada explained why this is.

"There was a video of a man’s dog being headlocked by a kangaroo, and he punched it in the face. It turned into a big problem," says Harada. "People were complaining about him punching a kangaroo. It seems that in the last few years there’s a lot more animal activists—even though they probably wouldn’t play our game they would still hear about that, about a kangaroo in our game being punched, and would complain about it."

Despite the fact Roger Jr's fighting macropod father Roger has featured in the Tekken series since its second '96 outing, Kuma the bear will appear in Tekken 7 all the same as it is "obviously stronger than a human being", so suggests Harada.

Tekken 7 is due on PC on June 2, 2017, and will come with 38 playable fighters despite Roger Jr's removal.

Most of the KOF titles on steam are on sale for 5 bucks a piece.  Worth every penny.
Great way for new people to play the classics.

I suggest 98 um or 2002 um, nostalgia aside, these are my faves.
The only negative is the Sloppy online and BULLSHIT AI, but for 5 bucks ? you cant go wrong.

If they made the bosses balanced when played as like Garou did then I would have no problem.
But because they're still cheap I'd feel filthy using them so I don't....curses.
I would like to see Krizalid or K9999/Nameless make a comeback.....as long as they leave Bao.

Quote
The purpose of this agreement is to improve the user experience while accelerating the production of titles and reducing development costs for both parties. Further, with this cross-license for online matching, Capcom aims to effectively utilize the patents it has been granted in game series such as Street Fighter in order to deliver even more exciting content to game players.

With this agreement as a starting point, Capcom will continue to explore cross-licensing opportunities in order to safeguard its patents while improving the user experience and contributing to a healthier game industry.

So there might be SFXT2 or a possibly a triple crossover.

For the right price, it might be a must buy game for me.

I had Anthology for the Wii and the one thing that disappointed me about it was that it had V and not V Special. V Special is easily the better version of the game and it's not just because they amped up the violence.

Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection Announcement Trailer for PS4, Xbox One, PC and Switch coming May 2018.



Quote
Over 60 characters, 40 million units sold, and 30 years later, we’re celebrating Street Fighter with the Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection for PlayStation 4!

The Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection contains 12 iconic titles in the series that each have their place in Street Fighter history and will be available in May 2018 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC!

Seems to collect every Capcom SF game from 1 to Third Strike in one package with bonuses like sprite viewers, artwork etc. It looks like there is only online play for the final version for each series though (surprised they didn't do Alpha 2 as well). Edit: Didn't notice Hyper Fighting was in the online line up too.

Five versions of SF2 but only the first version of SFA3. At least it's presumably the PSX version, not the arcade version. It's not like Max had any gameplay change, but - did they just forget that there were other versions ?
Shoot I'm just hoping all the games in the collection are based off their console versions to some degree, though if these games aren't just emulated ports with online play they could just add the characters to Alpha 3 ala Mugen style no problem presumably.

Apparently, it's the vanilla one. At least based on the Karin's recolored stage from Sakura appeared on that video, like on the very first version.

The trailer straight up says "arcade-perfect gameplay", it's not the PSX version.

The last time they did one of these things for Alpha they had the NAOMI arcade version as an unlockable. Hopefully that's the version they're going with from the start.

Having the source code for the game would be 100 times better, but I love Rising Thunder.

Don't know if anyone has been tracking this indie fighting game, Cerebrawl, but they just launched their kickstarter. Diepod is the voice of the announcer.

Oh nice, they've got Mega Ran on the soundtrack?  He's fucking awesome.  I hope that gets funded, it looks like it's got some real potential.

This game, while not my cup of tea in many aspects, looks pretty respectable in the Art Direction department. I'm tempted to buy it because I have a soft spot for 2D
