Some people just don't have time because of other responsibilities. Some people just stop because they think that's what adults are supposed to do (but still waste hours a day watching television or doom-scrolling on their phones).




"Mega impressive 2D" is a colossal waste of time and money. People seriously need to stop with that shit. Stuff like the Guilty Gear/Dragonball Fighterz look is as close as you're going to get in a big-budget game.

Also, SF6 looks significantly different from 5, design wise.

Nah it's some weirdass uncanny valley Macklemore ogre thing that just gained sentience and wonders if the way it looks is racist for Brazilians.

DBZ Fighters did look beautiful. I agree it's as good as it gets. Thank God they got rid of potato face Ken.

holy fuck @ dat blanka face

So SF6 has a thing where you can make faces with the characters by pushing buttons during the loading screen (like in Soul Calibur?) so Blanka doesn't normally have that derp face but he does look weirdly Orc-ish in this more western art style. Or like classic King Kong.

OMG I’m tempted to get this just to play with the faces and take stupid pics.

So can you buy a ps5 yet or still no?

So I've been watching footage of the beta and while the gameplay seems to be very solid and the game certainly looks better I thought it would for the most part (especially the backgrounds) that hub world is a fucking mess.

A local buddy of mine got in the beta and I got to spend a good amount of time with it on Saturday. For the record I was not a fan of SFV, and this was a breath of fresh air. Snappy, slick gameplay that reminds me of Third Strike. Exhaustion meter and dash cancels are fun as fuck once you get them down. Guile (my main) is a fucking beast. I can go on. It's a great game thus far and much further along in development than I had hoped.

As for the hub world, I didn't find it much of a problem. It sucks if you're using a stick and don't have a controller to pan the camera, but that's a small gripe. It's a visual representation of a menu, just like GG Strive. Like it or not that's what the kidz want these days. Sure, I still want a simple fucking menu, but there are some cool flourishes, though - like jumping into an excellent training mode while you wait for a match (somebody to come join your cab), choosing to spectate matches, etc.

The best part about the hub is the retro section. Each day Capcom puts a classic arcade game of theirs up on the cabs. Saturday it was my beloved Magic Sword. When you play a retro cab you can:
  • Play the game solo: Two modes - Unlimited Credits OR 1CC high-score attack with leader boards.
  • Play the game until you find a match.
  • No online co-op for the retro stuff, which is a bit of a let down.
All in all, outside of Luke's awful design and his Popeye arms, I was doubly impressed. Certainly more impressed than KOFXV even in this early state.

Juri is still the only "new" character with a design I like.
I hope C. Viper comes back.
Game doesn't look so hot to me so far, it might be a $20 bargain bin pickup...
I skipped V, is it worth getting?

No unless you play online. I only used it to test arcade sticks when I modded them. Endless grind in single player but at least they added an arcade mode. It's better now but the release state was a joke.

At this point I'd say go hard on cel shading (way more than snk is doing) or just call it a day. 3D models in 3D fighters is what they need to keep pushing at any rate, make them ever more interesting.
Fighterz basically convinced me there is another way and it may be the only real way nowadays. It won't happen any time soon but I will hold out for a new Alpha/Zero to go this way.
I just feel 3D style graphics in traditional fighting games is just not really sustainable. A very different visual language

Yeah Fighterz is amazing looking, it's baffling why Capcom and SNK insist on making these weird plastic action figure looking characters.

I don't care how much flair or lame ass razzle-dazzle hit effects you put on top, that just looks like spin art.

My guess is they do it that way because it's a bit cheaper.
FighterZ looks like it was made by fans for fans, is that game good?
