    Can't decide if I want to jump in and see where I land with Juri or bumble around with Cammy and Lily first.

    Debating getting the current gen Hori fightpad, since the Dpad looks like it might be more merciful for how I use my thumb (place the join on the middle, rock), but I've seen much more mixed opinions about it in general and that dpad in particular.

    There's a part of me that thinks what I really want is like, an analog stick but gated. Or a arcade stick that's concave and grippy on top so I can use my thumb. Weirdo shit.

    I love outfit two for both Marisa and Manon. Manon's Outfit 1 was just too plain looking to me, her Outfit 2 really feels like the over-the-top diva she seems to be. Suit Marisa is just amazing.

    That whooshing sound you just heard was Kimberly shooting up the ranks of characters I'm likely to try on day one. Jesus that's a cool look. I'd have practiced her in the open beta if I had known!

    Not actually feeling Marisa B as much as I would have guessed if you had described it to me. I'll probably stick with the default on her.

    I'd like to see a pigtails-and-pants combo for Cammy someday, but I'll happily take the the SF6 default look over...that.

    IDK. Juri has always been edgy, goth waifu character for foot fetishists so it seemed like a natural progression.

    Her original outfit was always the best.

    As for Marisa I like everything any her outfit except the shoes.

  • KamarKamar Registered User regular
    I liked her battle outfit in SFV. Too normal to ever be a default costume, though.

    Mostly don't like that she keeps the "bangs" with the new hairdo. Doesn't feel like it fits much, even if it's part of the character style.

    SF6 Guile is nice, but Classic Costume Guile is iconic.

    Also, Classic Costume Cammy is totally banned from tournaments. There's no way they allow that on ESPN 3.

    I remembered I did in fact played vanilla SFV on PS4, so I'm good on the bonus stuff.

    Got SF6 pre-ordered and downloaded on my Series S. Not sure who I'm gonna play but my eye is currently being drawn to the big beef; Gief and Marisa.

    i like my hitbox but that razr thing looks pretty good primarily because it seems to be thin and light. supposing it doesnt cost 9000000 dollars I might have to go in

    I'm on the "tried to save a couple bucks and got it on IndieGala" train, complete with support channel that just became SF6 General.

    Still a few hours before unlock time here, so not complaining just yet.

    I just starting watching Maximilian's new video on Street Fighter 4, and it reminded me of C.Viper.

    I'm honestly surprised she never made it into Street Fighter 5.

    Woo, I was able to unlock the game early on Steam with a VPN! With this extra 10 hours of practice Evo will be a breeze.

    Hey I don't street fighter but I just saw a picture of Marisa and that hair-as-ancient-greek-helmet thing is the stupidest and best character design thing I've seen in a while and it's really gonna stick with me okay bye

    So. Just in case you run into some silly shit, picking World Tour and Fighting Ground after starting game might give you a weird "downloaded content is not available" message. Turns out the game doesn't tell you it's still getting stuff, so you gotta wait for it to finish. It's mostly what's driving the negative reviews on Steam.

    Should I buy sf6

    And which platform PC or series x?

  • WearingglassesWearingglasses Of the friendly neighborhood variety Registered User regular
    SF6 is neat! It's got stuff that's not just for the hardcore fighting game dude - a single player Create a Character thing, and Modern controls for easier execution, and some weird modes. But you can always download the demo first and see if it's to your liking.

    Tempted to blow a free trail on this when I get home from work, but I'd only be saving 3 and a half hours in which time I should also cook dinner, clean up, and get some laundry going.

    Still tempted though.

    This is concerning



    After MK11 launched people criticising its grind basically got them to reduce the grind needed by like 90%, so hopefully the same happens here

    It doesn't sound as bad as MK11 even post patch.

    It should be noted that his 18 hour playtime is not 18 hours of grinding Ryu rep. Is getting all character costumes going to take a lot of time? Absolutely. But guides and what not are going to come out highlighting what gifts characters like and where they come from within a couple days after release. You'll still need to play World Tour using each character's style so expect to spend a few hours doing that, but you can treat lot of that as training mode time until you get to the tougher CPU fights.

    I think the game drip feeds you some premium currency too but I can only find articles on the Chipotle promotion so maybe not. If you do participate in the Chipotle promo, that's 5 costumes right there. First wave ones, anyway. I anticipate future costumes will be more costly.

    he played for 18 hours not knowing costume unlocks were even a thing. i have a feeling if you really want the costumes it will not take that long

    Yes but ok let’s say it only took him 2 hour to grind ryu, which based on his description is way low balling it, that’s still a lot for one costume. And yes it’s apples to oranges, MK11 you could unlock a lot of costumes far quicker, but only if they were available in a tower. I’m not trying to say which is better, they’re different scenarios, it’s just concerning and I hope if it is a slog they lessen it if it gets criticised the same way mk11 did

    It depends on how much if that time is spent specifically trying to gain reputation or whatever

    Also do we know how many other costumes there will be and how you get them?

    See that bums me out. I’m fine with the occasional money only costume but only if there’s a fair amount of costumes available in game, even with a grind
