    as someone who literally cannot move his fingers fast enough for fighting game combos, I am so excited for divekick

    the only fighting game I was remotely good at was Soul Calibur, which is a MUCH slower fighting game that relies on knowing the characters and your opponent

    divekick is that, distilled

    see for me divekick has all the things i love about street fighter IV, with the elements of patience and baiting a punish as opposed to like marvel where it's usually just rushdown rushdown rushdown

    but without fucking links and shit to worry about

    it sounds like heaven

    I would like to see a fighting game that tries to do what Divekick is doing but doesn't go quite as far.

    a quarter of the time I do a shoryuken when I try to do a fireball.

    I could not PLAY SFIV, is what I'm getting at

    If I have two buttons and only two buttons, and I just have to understand the cerebral metagame? That's much more up my alley

    oh yeah no i get what you're saying

    i was just saying that to me the meta game present in divekick seems really similar to SSF4, without all the execution hang ups

    because i too am Bad At Fight Games

    As a guy who pretty much purchases only 3D fighting games, (Tekken, Virtua, Soul Cali) DiveKick looks like a fun 2D fighter.
    I've never cared about combos as much as blocking and launching hard surgical strikes.

    How does that fit with '80s sci-fi?

    You are thinking of the music video version of the '80s

    Neon greens and pinks, people blasting Human League, ludicrously-sized boomboxes

    re: persona progress

    I have just finished mid terms and am searching for a clue to help teddie find the whereabouts of the next person who showed up on the midnight channel now SPOILERS
    1) who the FUCK is this kanji guy
    2) who the FUCK is this guy in this dumb fucking hat and is he gonna have some kind of super strong digimon for me to fight
    3) god DAMNIT game when you asked me who i was into i straight up said Chie NOT Yukiko because "Gary Gary" the strong protagonist of Persona 4 is busy trying to get into Chie's BONE ZONE right now while he wheels Yumi the drama girl on the side and then when I want to pair up with Chie to tail the guy you're all "NO GO WITH YUKIKO" like i fucking wanted anything to do with here but whatever got her number anyway just a usual day for Gary Gary the champ digimon stud

    Marie spoilers
    i haven't been able to take marie out for a while and it makes me really sad :( she seems super cool and is the TRUE WHEELING TARGET

    Did he get the knockdown? HP Shoryuken
