It was a joke
As for UI, once it's mastered, it's not like Dragon Ball is just going to sit down and say "that's it, this was the end game, Goku will never get any further than that because that's the top of the universe".

Super Kaiohken is anime only atrocity and its name shall be spoken no more.
Ultra instinct is just a step on the powercreep ladder. Remember when Super Saiyan God was a Saiyan with the power of a god (totally not in response to the Goku vs Superman death battle crap) and that was it ? Powercrept less than one movie later (not even worth showing it).

Tung is old and knows he'll die soon, so he might leave his spot to another guy who is already dead ?
If Tung must be replaced by a student, the first I'd see is Chonrei. But I still expect Tung to stay.
edit - I'm an idiot and forgot XIV just resurrected a bunch of people, I see now why some people are starting to talk about Jeff. I still don't expect him.

Saisyu's 98 team was Masters team IINM.

Next to the regular Rugal guild raid, comes an event raid, with Lady Chang. Also teasing again the extra difficulty tier for Rugal.

I'm just waiting for them to release gold imprint stones that aren't just for burn. I don't understand why every single raid mode gives silver stones for all pairs of elements, but burn is the only element for gold (and there's something that gives gold bleed but I can't remember which mode it is). It's so bad I stopped going for the max reward on expert for Rugal and just getting 4 tier 5 boxes (expert x2 and hard x2) because I need more shock stones, even if they're silver. Even the immortal bosses I stop before 380M damage to get the silver chest. It's not like I have the hammers to upgrade them all to lv10 anyway (that decision would easily go the other way if it was remotely doable to upgrade several dozens of stones to lv10).

I just realized that XIV Kyo had daddy's Tsumugari for his climax move and not the wall of flame or the nuke punch from the last few games. Considering they're reusing animations for XV, yet the trailer showed Kyo had the 00 punch (possibly the MAX move he had in XIV, the 99 double punch super into the 00 punch), maybe he doesn't have the Tsumugari again because... Saisyu's coming back and taking his super back ? Eh, it'll take a while before we know more about that.

I really hope you're not saying you don't want people to be considered adults until they're in their early twenties, with all the legal rights and responsibilities that come with being considered an adult. Being an adult and having a right to a place in society equal to everyone else should not have anything to do with your brain being fully formed.

No, that is 100% not how any country on the planet defines who's a teen and who's an adult. And it 100% shouldn't be how they define it.

To be faiiiiiiir, there's a cultural thing there because over here you're an adult at 18, so no, 19 isn't a teenager (especially since our word for teenager isn't based on the word "ten"). It's hard to attribute the word in English to someone who's legally an adult. Depends on your language and your law.

That being said, Kyo was absolutely designed as a stereotypical hotheaded cocky teenager in the early years, regardless of your legal word for his age. It's ridiculous to claim otherwise.

Also, last time that discussion came up and I looked that up, I could swear Kyo was like 15 or 16 in the first games, got wrecked by Goenitz before 96 and then held back only one year, then disappeared in 97 and never finished school because of NESTS ? When did the info about him being 19 after 95 come from ??
edit - wikipedia says they just stopped aging at all after 95 so the year numbers are irrelevant.

Devil hands coming out of thin air... DEVIL POWERS?! Huh, go figure.
Devil hands are not a thing (except for idle playthings). I have no idea where you picked up that expression. Giant floating hands would sooner make me think of a puppeteer (inverted in Shun'ei's case, he's the puppeteer, the hands are the puppets), or the Smash Bros boss, or a Jojo Stand. Not the devil.

edit - in fact, Shun'ei looks like he's a step away from being a goth kid who has giant puppet hands as a power and he's the one dressing them up to pretend they're demonic.

And how else am I supposed to describe a aesthetically clueless design that matches no realistic counterparts except for describing his specifically tailored lore?
Right, tell us you've never seen an angsty teen wear headphones and a jacket over the shoulders and unkempt shirt and pants with a chain. Go on.

Yeah, claiming that Shun'ei's powers are less explained than Kyo's is not very honest. Kyo's powers turned out to be directly connected to the big bad of the story, Orochi, as a bunch of old mythology. Consider that Shun'ei is in the same situation.
Mature and Vice are even worse, they were introduced as Rugal's secretaries, somehow got superhuman powers in 96, and did the game ever actually say they got those powers from Orochi beside just saying they served him ? The whole hakkeshuu shtick is never completely explained In actual canon as I recall.

Sylvie's backstory is that she got out of NESTS when it collapsed and now she's trying to pass as a normal person who happened to turn pop star. The design can reflect her own tastes and not necessarily her power archetype. That should be something to call actual good character design, because that's how you make characters that aren't one dimensional. how is that even different from Athena, another pop star who has psychic powers ? Sylvie is another pop star who has lightning powers.

Sylvie was based on a specific j-pop singer who did look like that, her design is irrelevant to the usual skills of the character designers. But it does clearly show what they take inspiration from at the time.
The same game also has
"angsty modern teen with headphones" Shun'ei (wearing headphones isn't really a new idea to show an aloof loner teen)
pajama psychic boy Meitenkun
the sand guy
Geese's chess playing buttler
elite-but-shady-teacher Gang-il (my personal fav of the new XIV guys)
Chinese theater mask girl
a wrestler in a dino suit (that's a new design even if it's an existing character)
a Brazilian ninja
a metal arm boxer
so it's still very varied and touches a lot of bases. Try comparing Gang-il or buttler boy to Kaya instead.
Just because you hate ONE of them doesn't mean much about the designers' tastes.
(well, there's a bunch of those that I don't care for myself, but that was already the case before with the likes of Chin and Choi anyway)

Shun'ei is brand new and the least likely to get a revamped moveset already. I'm also not expecting Kyo to get anything new (beside maybe his ultimate but I don't expect anything straying too far from that one punch), just waiting to see which ones of the classic moves he'll get. And if he gets the Mu Shiki because come on. Benimaru I'm surprised that they cared enough to change his design, but his movelist ? Not a chance. For some of those characters, it's a given that they'll play up the ability to pull out those same combos you know by heart since '96.

what I want to see is if characters like Kim, Ryo, Takuma, Andy, King etc. will get new moves and designs (come on Mr. Karate II already ! Grow older !), and if Iori will be flameless (yeah like that's happening) or at least incorporate some variations of his flameless attacks (but better because his XII/XIII moves are lame). I'll be annoyed if Iori has yet again the exact same movelist he's had all these years with barely a couple new things - but then again I still expect it. That's the biggest expectation I'd really like to see shattered : throw a wrench in all those legacy movelists already. I don't care to see the exact same combos that have been around since '96.

Glad to finally see something close to actual gameplya.
But they got crazy with jumpcuts.
Feel like they try to hide some possible bad looking stuff.
Every single fighting game trailer is cut like that.

So... Weekly trailer for each character ?
Also edgy teen calling his enemy "you're such a child" because of course. At least he's going easy on the angst now.
They went real hard on those leather and wool etc. textures, uh.

Bunch of countries in the green and orange. Countries in the red have NOT done it right. Some of those did more or less okay at first and then got a little loose (Germany is going up lately, and it looks like something's going on in Ireland), some did it wrong at first and then started to catch up but are still not doing too well, etc.

wtf is wrong with you
He liked Maximum Impact, his opinion is irrelevant nonsense.
Excuse me, I like MI and I'm not saying homophobic nonsense.

Is not a matterof liking Maximum Impact(everyone has a game to like), is just the guy being plain stupid and homophobic.

I'm just taking a jab after he said the same thing about me. No offense to MI, it was okay (and even if I didn't like it, it wouldn't invalidate your opinion).

except Kyo that doesn't show that much
Kyo's is the single punch from '00 or '01, dunno if it will have anything else before or after that punch. But I'm glad they're moving away from the dumb generic "point finger or fist, giant wall of flame" that he's been getting as his ultimate for a few games.
