I'm in the UK, London to be precise and as most of the world knows... it's a bit of a shitshow. For a year I've shielded, been furloughed, gone back to work, had my work push through a huge (permanent!) paycut for staff because of how aviation is fucked at the moment, yet the CEO etc still have the same wages.

I miss friends and being able to teach my community fitness classes, but I stay at home, socially distance if I have to go out/go to work, wear a mask etc and remain vigilant. I know of quite a few that have passed from it, some who were perfectly healthy struck down to a shell of themselves with it. But still there's a large about of people who won't follow guidelines thinking it's "Just a hassle/a government ruse".

Myself and my husband are vulnerable, so we're not taking any risks.

Sorry to hear people here have lost loved ones or been affected. Hopefully the World will slowly recuperate...

I'd love Richard Myer or Bob Wilson, but it would be nice to see characters like Michael Max and Temjin return... As long as it's not Wang Koh-San. :P

Again, it would be nice to start aging the characters too... imagine how beefy Shingo would be and taking his own new techniques into a KOF. Also, Yuri needs to age, not regress... or we'll be fighting a toddler at some point! XD

Whilst I've always been a Galford main, with Charlotte and Amasuka secondary's... I'd love to see Gen-An, Sieger or Gaira.

Still, regardless of who is revealed, I'll be glad for more characters added. :)

Trailer is out for KOV XV along with a bunch of other stuff including two of the Season 3 characters. I kinda guessed Cham Cham, but the Last Blade character I was kinda hoping for someone else, but hey... it's more support for this game!

I'm open to returning characters but I want updated movelists, at least effects. I'm really not fond of bringing back old movelist absolutely identical to what they were doing before. Make better moves or just come up with new characters, don't copy-paste.

This. I remember the hype seeing KOF'96 launched in a London arcade and everyone freaking out how different some of the characters moves were. It was a refreshing change to see differences between Ryo and Robert expanded and Kyo's moveset changed. (Not going to lie, I'm usually a Andy/King main and I LOVED the new tools).

So yeah, I hope they change things up again too. :)

I can't seem to find anything on FES Daimon. He's not in the Codex, is he in the new Rush dungeon? I haven't got around to playing that yet.

Well.. they LOOK cinematic... but, 5 FES characters (With Battle Cards) to get and awaken before the event runs out?

Balls to that. I mean, technically could use the Dimension Invitations to awaken, but even so... what's the chances of getting the character and card you need without spending an insane amount of money?

New teaser of upcoming units.  Description hints it might be a new collab coming soon.

Seems it's been inadvertently leaked by the Japanese AllStar Twitter account before they put up the teaser image to cover it up.

It's a Netmarble collab from Seven Knights. Seems the mobile game is a gatcha nightmare, but there was an RPG on the Switch?  Might just be me, but I would have liked more characters from the SNK universe, but hey...

I love that Illian gives off some serious (to me, at least) 90's X-Men vibes. The moveset is well rounded and I love the command grab with the "throwing out the trash" part to follow up with.

Looking forward to the progressions as they come. It's a fun ride!

One person? O.o  That's seriously good work.  I love the art style and the combat actually seems to feel right from the sounds and hitpauses.

I'll be keeping my eye on this. Thanks!

Why do people say Hibiki ? Because of CvS2 ? Yuki is currently in the mobile game SNK All Star, if you want recognizability. You may say SNK All Star has little popularity power, but here's a reminder that CvS2 was about twenty years ago.
edit - oh wait, SNK All Star also has Lee and Kaede. Is that what you meant ?

I'm played SNK All Star at the moment, it's an interesting game. Main reason I said Hibiki is that most people that I've seen online call out for her like they do Iroha. I dunno, it's like some weird cult. XD
I'd prefer Yuki as I used to main her and Lee.

All in all though, I'm just glad that SamSho2019 is still going! :)  I'd love to see Amakusa as playable, but I'm sure there's many other worthy characters to be bought back. :)

I think we all know it's gonna be Hibiki, although Setsuna would be another favourite. Kaede, Lee, Yuki and Akari seem to turn up as guest appearances/characters but I guess it's just waiting to see.  I hope it isn't Hyo.. XD

Well VF in my book  well never be as good as Tekken

And yet, it's still being played in tournaments like EVO. VF isn't as good at Tekken in your opinion, that's fine. But that's just that, an opinion.

Honestly? VF was hard to get into. There wasn't really many "flashy" moves or even real "Special" moves like Tekken. But VF had a charm to it. VF2 was everything VF was and more. More moves, more strategies, combos and two new fighters. There was just a lot more to it.
VF3 was amazing as it started to show off the Naomi hardware, then the Team Battle update just sort of made the game so much cooler. VF3/tb is still one of my favourites of the series due to the varied crazy stages that could help or hinder combos.

Personally I didn't really get on with VF4 or it's update, but VF5 and it's updates all the way up to Final Tuned were just amazing. I'd love a VF6, but honestly, I'd not really mind to pay out for a remaster or something, even if it was just VF1. (As long as it's not Kids! :P )

I really like the look of it. I've not kept up with the lore for years, but it looks like more of the Arkham City game, and I'm so down for that.

I dunno how I did it, but I pulled Briana with my first 10 pack. I've just been saving rubies for a bit and got her after switching off of Leona for the Pick Up.  Watch as I don't get her Card for like... 6 months now. :P

When I first saw Dan in the reveal, it was almost like they just ported his SF4 version over, but there's a fair few changes to his attacks at least. I have NO idea what they were thinking when creating his Gale Kick, it looks... utterly random now.  Also, the animations for Dan's throws makes him look even goofier!  I can't wait to see him in action!
