I hate to drill into this topic farther then it needs to be, but why would they even add a DS character in the game ? if its to advertise the series they already have characters with DS skin

on the other hand having a character from Rival Schools like Akira being in the game makes more sense, as from my understanding , her own series take place in the same universe as SF
Rival Schools does happen in the same universe as SF but the fanbase had pretty much given up any hope of ever seeing it anywhere again after Capcom Fighting All Star died. There were completely baseless rumors (just wishful thinking, really) about Akira back when SF5 had only a dozen characters and Ono was hyping up Mika, but that went nowhere fast (well, there was a point where Ono said he was surprised that a French event was asking so much about that series and he said "sure, make noise about it, maybe Capcom will hear it", that's what got people believing). The guy who made the original couple of games has said a few times these last couple of years that he'd gladly make a new game, but everyone expects it to not happen. Seeing Akira now is pretty crazy - but I still don't think we should assume it means anything, seeing how Capcom treats its dead IPs and their assumptions about those IPs' fanbases (Megaman, Darkstalkers...).

About Darkstalkers, Macaulyn's post up there is the first I've heard of this rumor, I've no idea if there's any ground to it, and I don't have any hope that it'll turn true.
If I struggled to the end of my determination, to the end of my way of life with my followers, if the result is ruin, then this ruin is inevitable. Grieve. Shed tears. But you cannot regret.

It IS just a rumor and I'm not going to pretend its a fact or anything of the sort. However, I think we shouldn't ignore that, in recent years, Capcom has been quite fanservicy with its releases, with Devil May Cry 5, two Resident Evil remakes that people wanted, a Megaman game, they clearly are making stuff that we like. Hell, the fact that they included Akira means that they ARE listening to what people want, since, AFAIK, she is a fan-favourite in Rival Schools. Again, the supposed Darkstalkers thing isn't a fact, BUT, its not really impossible to happen, considering its the last DLC character of SF5, I wouldn't be surprised if they're like "Here is Morrigan, you know her? She is from Darkstalkers" and later "Here is a new Darkstalkers game while we're cooking the next Street Fighter game". I never bought the idea that companies cannot have multiple fighting games, Bandai-Namco had Tekken and Soul Calibur together and they're both doing fine, they had success with Tekken being the big one and Soul Calibur being a smaller one. I could see Capcom doing the same with Street Fighter as the big one and another franchise (not necessarily Darkstalkers) as the smaller.

https://www.gematsu.com/2020/09/devil-may-cry-5-special-edition-announced-for-ps5-xbox-series

Devil May Cry 5 Special Edition got announced on the PS5 showcase. It will also be available for Xbox Series X. The special edition will have Vergil as a playable character, Turbo Mode, Legendary Dark Knight Mode and many more. For those who already own the game on Xbox One, PS4 and Steam however are not going to get all of the additions that the special edition will bring. Only Vergil as separate DLC for 5 dollars. For those only want Vergil, this is ok but for those who want stuff like Turbo mode, well, tough shit boyo, you gonna have to buy a PS5 or a XBSX just to get it.

This is huge. Now that both Obsidian and Bethesda are both owned by Microsoft hopefully we can get can a proper Fallout game by the end of the generation. Cause we can all agree that Fallout 76 is basically a joke by now.

Bethesda has been a garbage company for years now I don't see forced console exclusivity doing anything to alleviate that.

Well I can see this go into different possibility, firstly there could be a New Vegas or a proper Fallout made by Obsidian, Secondly we can see Elder Scrolls 6 be exclusive to Xbox with Microsoft allowing them all the time they need to develop the best yet, and Thirdly this can greatly increase the chances of Bungie (and Valve if possible) to be acquired. I understand the controversy and unexplainable marketing tactics that we have seen these past few years, but it’s for the better (hopefully, God help us all).

This is just more reasons you should buy a PC for, you get the best of both world. Both Sony and Microsoft make console exclusives but they port them over to PC. Microsoft does that more, but Sony is starting to port over third party console exclusives (like Horizon Zero Dawn and Bloodborne).

PC is the best imo. Modern day consoles are glorified jukeboxes, you have to load them up with money every-time you want to have some fun.

Fallout 76 was a joke from the start.

I agree, it feels like it will only happen to cut a big part of the playerbase.

Just hope the games you play have a really good anti cheat system or it will go to hell real fast. And get a really thick skin because flaming and toxicity is a lot more common.

Yea no, PC isn't the best.

Microsoft ports their console exclusives to PC because everyone runs Windows anyway and Sony isn't porting everything of theirs to PC.

I never bought the whole "PC master race" bullshit. Sure, it can have graphically superior versions of games, but I have my limits when it comes to caring about how good graphics are. Its too much of a hassle to build a PC when you can just buy the damn console and save yourself the trouble, not to mention its also easier to transport, and has really good exclusives... on the PlayStation and Nintendo side, at least, even if Sony ports some for PC.

  • Proper order of things is often a mystery to me
    • USA
I learned a good long while ago that art direction trumps any number thrown out to validate further pushing for graphics.  Certainly they were more of a topic of interest as 3D was finding its footing, but by the late PS2/Xbox/Gamecube to mid PS3/360 era they hit the point where I stopped caring beyond it being frosting on whatever cake is being served so long as the game has a clear vision and execution (Heck, some like Perfect Dark or Banjo-Kazooie make use of their early 3D graphics to be all the more memorable and contributes to the charm, frankly  Rare was good at that).  I can get a great deal more invested for the likes of Wind Waker or Mirror's Edge over the next Call of Duty.  As far as I'm concerned, Metroid Prime and Halo 3 are the best looking games ever.  And objectively Other M has every possible technological advantage over the entire Prime trilogy combined while on the same console and Halo 3 I'm playing as I type this again and it has literal blockheads with block eyes bugging out of their skulls for Humans.

As big a deal this purchase is for Microsoft, for the time being, I don't got much to say.  Bethesda's current contracts are left as is, so it's really the far away projects that will reflect whatever this entails, other than Microsoft enjoying the more immediate profits from their cross-platform games.  The optimist in me hopes for some more direct Doom X Halo friendly rivalry content akin to Doom had with Duke Nukem ages ago, but that's just me fanboying over green space marines.  What would be nice to come out of this though is getting that Microsoft money to get Bethesda to finally freaking upgrade their engine to something newer than that modified 2003 one they've got.

those excuses are kind of... shit tbh.
cheating in multiplayer is games is not cool i get it, but is that enough to  deter me from getting a PC? fuck no, online servers are constantly getting fixes and banning hackers, any game that doesn't, is essentially asking its players to ditch it. also that last point is some dank bully hunters shit, just mute or block whoever trolling you dude.
you don't need to build a pc if you want one, there are services that do that for you.

and yes i get it, nintendo and sony's exclusives are worth the consoles i guess, but why buy a microsoft console?
all of their exclusive games and their gamepass service is on pc. not only that, but you also get access to tons of other good games that didn't cross over to the consoles market and the games that are playstation exclusive but got pc ports.
not enough? how about those:
free online mutliplayer, multiple online game vendors, cheap prices on games, refunds on steam, emulators, multiple controllers support, and free remote stream gaming (i guess this is available on consoles too).

Wow.
Microsoft console is not a console, people who buy an Xbox might as well be buying a PC, console is PlayStation and Nintendo, that's the point. /troll

  • The story begins with who's gonna win

New XBox max specs costs 500 dollars

RTX 2070 by itself costs 500 dollars without the rest that you need because a card alone can't run a game

Pay 15 dollars more on that XBox a month and you get online (which yes it sucks that you have to pay for online but that cheese is old and moldy, where is the bathroom) but you also get every MS first party game, every Bethesda game now, last year's Madden and Fifa plus whatever else EA has in its vault like the Mass Effect trilogy and after what's left over is still the strongest offering of games you'll find especially for that value proposition

If Steam hadn't had its head up its own ass, maybe we could be talking about a consumer friendly PC Master Race but it did and we aren't

Too deep in yearning we need
something to hold, and something to keep
Innocent eyes could not realize
the meaning of "destiny"
But someday I promise that
you’ll start to notice what’s there on your shoulders someday -
Wings that are strong,
they will guide you along to the future that holds your fate!
Let me tell you a cruel angel’s thesis -
Flying high from the window, finding egress
There is something betraying all my memories,
burning pathos, emotion overwhelming!

Again, your game better have a good anti cheat software and have the tools to crack down on them ASAP. You're downplaying the issue too much when even triple A studios can have a hacker infestation in their games (See: COD Warzone and GTA Online)

Yea, I can shut off text and voice chat but it won't change facts.

Sony and Microsoft force you to pat for online but st least they give you other things along with that(Extra discounts and Monthly free games for example)

Let's not ignore that PC as just a gaming device isn't quite as cost effective as a dedicated gaming console.

I just found one on this review: https://www.hobbylux.de/kartenmischmaschine-test/ (i know it's in german but you can translate it with translators)... i am interested in the GreatGadgets 2128 but i wanted some recommendations from you guys ;)

Lots of thanks already :)
Have a nice weekend
