    Turns out Capcapom did learn its lesson. Unfortunately, they learned it from Dead or Alive.

    Hey, that's not fair.

    In Dead or Alive you could get 71 costumes and a new playable character for that price.

    I purchased Skullgirls, Melty Blood Lumina and one of the BlazBlues for Switch over Thanksgiving, for less than half of the cost of those costumes. Entire fighting games, mind you.

    Had the costumes been $2-3 I might've grabbed 2 or 3. Maybe more if bundled.

    At this extortionate rate I'd rather just spend that money on Under Night (and maaaaaaybe Tekken 8) than support Capcom's BS.

    I'd probably have paid $30 for all of them, but as is I'll at most get two (Kimberly and Cammy) and maybe not even them.

    On a different note, jeez, Kimberly's colors for outfit 3 are almost all hideous. What a waste.

    Honestly, when they were announced I liked a lot of them and felt they would bring some nice novelty to the game. Now that the prices are announced I find myself struggling to find many I care enough about, even for my main. Had it been something like 10$ total I might have bought them, but at 6 each I can’t find many that I like enough to bother.

    I was foolish enough to hope they could be bought with drive tickets.

    Costumes were never gonna be $10 for all of 'em. Even in V premiums were $4 a pop.

    But I am surprised there is no bundle. Cynic in me says they probably gonna wait until set 4 to do it so they can get the whales first.

    I do like the portals/tentacle/horror from beyond thing they've got going on with him. This might sound glib, but I'm really looking forward to the eventual complete edition. I only say that because I'm not really into playing NRS games against other people while still enjoying the setting and how stupid the narrative gets.

    I just can't justify MK1's cost for how I'm going to play it.

    This man has 3 knees.

    Maybe it's not a single Quan Chi. Maybe Quan Chi is opening portals to other dimensions, tapping other Quan Chis on the shoulder with his foot, and then alternate dimension Quan Chis are kicking the opponent.

    Also in some dimensions Quan Chis are made of tentacles.

    Edit: Quan is short for quantum. I've cracked the case

    I swear I've seen a youtube analyzing game animation, and they just use NRS' games as stuff that is awkward and stiff

    Random thought:

    Do you think Ed will have motion controls for his classic mode, and his SFV moveset be translated into Modern? Or will Capcom retain him as Easy Streets?

    That new stage is cool, some kind of empty arena with a giant version of the TWT trophy in the background?

    They'll very likely want to keep the Modern control l layout consistent among characters.
    As far as Classic, would be strange to take away the unique aspect of his play style. They'd probably want to change the button-mash special to something else though, since they changed the other ones for Honda/Chun/Blanka.

    Does Tekken still have stages where you can lose by getting knocked out of the arena?

    Nope, that's more of a Soul Calibur and Virtua Fighter thing.

    Some have breakable walls/floors that let you extend combos though.

    as far as i'm aware, tekken has never had a ring out stage

  • Fig-DFig-D Tustin, CA, USRegistered User regular
    edited December 2023
    It has not. With Tekken's corner carry and the victim's lack of air control, ring outs would be exceedingly easy/common.

    Speaking of ring outs, my roomate and I have been playing Virtua Fighter 5: Ultimate Showdown and damn that game is fun as shit

    Really hope Sega announces a new one tomorrow at The Game Awards, that would be cool

    I think it was leaked that they're working on a remake of 3tb, but it's a Japan only arcade cabinet thing.

    Hm, I'm starting to wonder if something is wrong with my connection or my system or if I'm getting bad connections that don't look like bad connections in SF6. I sometimes feel like I'm getting scooped up off the ground early or not getting wakeup invincible DPs I should or timing things late in general, and today at least once I tried to open with Juri's OD projectile and got beaten by another OD projectile. I've also seen people teleport once or twice.

    Connection pretty much always looks like 40-50ish ping, 0f rollback, but I dunno, it's stuff that feels like a bad connection.

    As far as Classic, would be strange to take away the unique aspect of his play style. They'd probably want to change the button-mash special to something else though, since they changed the other ones for Honda/Chun/Blanka.

    So the moves he has are:

    - Psycho Spark+Shoot (punch + projectile) - MP, MP
    - Psycho Knuckle (dash punch) - hold HP
    - Psycho Flicker (1,2,3!) - button mash
    - Psycho Upper - PP
    - Psycho Rising - KK
    - Psycho Snatcher (V-Skill 1)
    - Psycho Swing/Smash (V-Skill 2)

    Spark/Shoot seems like it can stay, Knuckle too since we already have held moves that change properties (not sure if the changes are as big as Psycho Knuckle tho)
    Flicker does seem like it will move to the QCB slot as you mentioned, given how the mash specials are all there
    One of Upper and Rising would need to change, but since Upper is a bit more memetic iconic, Rising might be given a DP command. (Or down down, like Tensho Kicks)
    Snatcher might be moved to the QCP slot, if it makes it (maybe Spark / Shoot's projectile loses its range and this becomes Ed's long range option of choice)
    No idea if Swing / Smash makes it or gets relegated to follow ups from Flicker / Knuckle

    Ed's V-Trigger 1 could be his Level 2? Not sure if there setup / shenanigan supers at level 1, mostly they're damage / reversal stuff.

    My hope is that Virtua Fighter is announced/does well, game devs realize people still like 3D fighters...and we get Soul Calibur 7.

    ... I'm playing the long game.

  • Fig-DFig-D Tustin, CA, USRegistered User regular
    I feel like the next VF is still a ways off, and the real hope for Soul Calibur is Tekken 8. Bandai Namco isn't interested in taking that risk unless their premier 3D fighter is doing gangbusters like T7 did.

    SteamID - Fig-D :: PSN - Fig-D
  • I needed anime to post.I needed anime to post. boom Registered User regular
    I think the previous Soul Calibur did poorly enough that we might honestly be more likely to get an entirely new Bamco fighter than SC7

  • WearingglassesWearingglasses Of the friendly neighborhood variety Registered User regular
    Maybe they're in Namco's "good enough for crossovers" box that Capcom also has, although theirs has Darkstalkers instead.

  • AvalonGuardAvalonGuard Registered User regular
    They could probably announce rollback for SC6 and maybe a last hurrah balance patch, and that would be a much better use of resources than a full sequel.

    Yeah SC6 was realized around the time where people were starting to get tired of delay-based netcode which didn't help it(hell I only played for a month myself cause the online and matchmaking was so bad)

    Hell if 6 just got rollback I'd take that too.

    Are these wired or wireless connections? I got this a lot with "great connection" wi-if players, to the point that I simply do not accept matches with them anymore.
