Fighting Games

  • It's still alive.......alive.........alive..........

  • @Sleepychino69 Wait! There's more Evo to talk about.

    Dragonball Fighterz: glad to see Go1 get the Evo win, he seemed pretty pleased. And seeing Sonicfox not win every single thing is always good - no hate, just keeps things fresh.

    Soul Calibur 6: I've never played this game but the ending of grand finals looked ridiculous. Did he turn into a car?!

    BlazBlue Cross Tag Battle: Shinku, you freak. An American takes a BlazBlue game at Evo. And after getting pretty overwhelmed in the first set, he runs it back 3-0 to take it in losers bracket. Pretty damn impressive.

    Street Fighter 5: This was the first year I felt like finals day was wide open in this game. I expected Infexious to take it (and so did Evo organizers, I guess) after he looked so unstoppable on Saturday. It was good to see Bonchan get one after 2014 and it was even better to see him come back from down 2-0 to keep it in winners. Good show to all of the top 8 and especially Bonchan, Infexious, Big Bird and Machabo.

    Tekken 7: The best thing to happen to fighting games in the past year is Arslan Ash. The story of just his journey to Evo Japan is inspiring enough that even if he had gone 0-2 in pools, people would have talked about it. But since he showed up as a pretty much unknown and took out all the best players in the world on his way to becoming champ on no sleep, he became a legend. But that was just a fluke, he got lucky and the Koreans were off their game...except then he also won Evo - IN WINNERS. And he was the one who sent Knee to losers so he beat him twice anyway. Nobody knew who this guy was a year ago and now he's the consensus best Tekken 7 player in the world, so nuts.

    Smash Ultimate: I was done watching here but insane run by MKLeo through losers bracket to run it back and take the whole thing. I did watch a bit of Grand Finals and the last stock of the first game was preeeetty nuts.

    Samurai Shodown: Super cool looking game and comeback mechanics are available to both players at any time, that gets an upvote.

    MK11: didn't catch any of it but good for SonicFox for holding on to the belt.

    UNIST: Missed all of it. Any highlights of this tournament for anybody?

  • SFV was indeed enjoyable. So glad Bon-chan won because I really hate Rashido. His moveset are just insane that he really feels OP. Of course Big Bird played well as him but really. He has speed, aerial with that stupid tornado as a protective that is also great at offensive. That last moment when he did Critical Art and send the tornado afterward made me think in that instant the bracket was gonna reset. That Karin jump kick was clutch. Tekken7 was also great but that came made me bit nauseous. Not used to 3D fighters. Bit of Windjammers was nice but not liking sequel they showed. Catherine Full Body was also amazing. Such a good versus game.

  • Seth is back..kinda ,sorta.
    Youtube Video

  • Well that's certainly a design

  • This is the most dumbfounding character yet. Even with the rumours, I never believed Seth was coming. Nobody has asked for this character. Even people who played him (them) in 4 have to know he (they) can't play anything like he (they) did in that game. And everybody else remembers how he (they) played in that game so wants nothing to do with the character. Super weird choice by Capcom. I'm not complaining, just extremely shocked. It honestly feels like a troll.

    Move set wise, I'm not really interested. It all just looks like standard fare - except CA, that looks top tier.

  • Seth has 925 health & stun so, I fully expect the character to have an absurd amount of shenanigans.

    It's going to be an interesting (final?) season for SFV. Will continue to play Gief, Abby, G, Honda, & Falke.

  • @solid
    Hey your alive, and here I was thinking you died

  • @solid
    Having seth and gill as the last characters to end sfv would make sense.

    With ps5 coming,capcom's probly working on Sf6.oh pls...No more comeback mechanics Q-Q

  • It does make sense indeed. The first SF to have all the bosses from I - IV be playable.

    To be honest...I kind of lost faith in Capcom's fighting division. Especially after that recent fan-made patch that practically fixed the netcode. Little over two days by one person...unbelievable. We'll see man...I still enjoy V and play it often but...I really don't know. Here's hoping though.

  • Final character for DBFZ or first of Season 3 announced , it's a Goku

  • @dmcmaster all these fighting games out here competing for who has the most disappointing final season pass character.

  • The Garou: Mark of the Wolves port for PS4, PC and Vita got rollback netcode now! I already got the game downloaded so there's no excuse for me to not play this game.

  • That's kinda out of nowhere

  • I'm seeing some familiar names in here. Long time no see.

  • Who are/were you?

  • Didn't post too much in the Fighting Games sub-section of the Gaming section but I was a super active person in General Discussion and General Gaming with the same name as here. Mostly between 2007 and the end.

  • Never mind it was a mistake

  • Rollback netcode's coming to Guilty Gear Strive! This bodes well for my fantasy critic league...

  • Apparently Fighting EX Layer is being updated with rollback netcode. I'm gonna give this game a try when it's on sale.
