90% of the mortal kombat roster died horribly in 9, twice.

Its just a bad series, the writing is bad even slightly beyond the average of fighting games, and its not like the gamplay is that great.
Also does anyone feel like the X-ray attacks are a dumb gimmick? Its like they are trying too hard to shock people because the franchise is so very tired.

I've never been a huge MK fan (never liked the gameplay), but yeah, the X-ray attacks seem like non-lethal mid-match Fatalities that do nothing to affect the overall metagame of a match.

I'd be fine if MKX was the last one because the franchise doesn't have legs any more. (I'd say the same for Ultra Street Fighter IV and Tekken 7, too.)

I'm not a fighting game fan but I tend to get very interested in the lore/characters (even though after awhile it tends to get super convoluted, error-filled and dumb overall in a long running fighter series)

For instance recently I've gotten really into the story of skullgirls and the background non-playable characters, but I'm not really able to play it at all.
I've basically absorbed all the plot info thats around but most people are more interested in talking about the mechanics of the game and the different/upcoming characters which while totally understandable is something I can't get into.

Is it true if the series hadn't been a fighting game it would have been either an rpg or a beat-em-up?
Wonder how that would have turned out.

I'd say legitimacy. You can't (properly) claim DMCA on things you don't actually own, so if they were fake they'd be protected under parody/satire. Nintendo has gotten plenty of shit for their Youtube shenanigans over the last year, so I doubt they'd want to risk further backlash without good reason.

They could have issued an illegitimate one and the uploader not interested in counter-filing with Youtube; if the uploader did counter-file and Nintendo didn't take legal action that would mean the videos are likely fake, so if the goal is to spread a rumor it would be bad to counter-file, anyway. Thus, legitimacy is not guaranteed, but I'd say it's a damn good bet. With the name "ESRB0038", so someone from the ESRB (or, more likely, one of their kids they let play it) is the leak.

People have put a lot of effort into hoaxes. There was one for Ocarina of Time that seemed legit and had people wondering for a few years: a few pictures of a TV showing Link receiving the Triforce. While "LEAKS" would seem above and beyond, I wouldn't be surprised...

>>189532
Huh, I didn't even make that connection. The pictures make more sense, then.

>>189534
Just having Snake wouldn't be enough; if they made him more CQC and less ROCKET he wouldn't make it in. These are probably just an example of the "worst" the game has to offer, along with random stuff for a general idea (Master Hand is not a leak.) If weaponry were a concern, I'm sure there would be images of Fox or Samus firing their guns, but I don't see that in there.

But, seeing as how we're six weeks out and are now fairly certain there are at least five other fighters unannounced, it doesn't look good for him.

>>189541
What a dumbass. I bet the "ESRB0083" is what gave him away. Guy lost what sounds like a sweet gig and is getting sued, for what? Some internet fame that will last only until the game is actually released? The game/3DS are probably property of Nintendo so if he doesn't give it back they'll sue him for those, too. At best he could go balls out and just upload everything he possibly could, which would be cool for us, but then he'd probably get sued for even more.

That wasn't really a hoax, the pictures were real. It's from one of the early trailers, and people spread it around as proof that the Triforce was in the game, because the trailer was so obscure that nobody had seen it.

I can get being mad at ZSS being objectified in general, I'm a feminist and think there's a place for general discussion about Samus's depiction but most of the loudest outrage against that particular costume seems really fucking misplaced/ignorant.

If we get other Nintendo Characters as DLC, aside from the ones who were in previous Smash games that just didn't make it this time, I'd like to see some of the non-leads from the "lesser franchises" get in, or even tertiary characters from "major franchises." Like see a Laguz or a Manakete from Fire Emblem make it in for example, or maybe someone like Kumatora from Mother 3, or Melnia from Xenoblade--which is admittedly not a Nintendo title per se, but might count. Also Groose. Everyone needs more Groose, always.

In regards to the debacle that was SFXT, and Capcom saying they were "finished" with SF4 for the time being this question has popped into my head.

If and when Capcom goes into development on SFV would it be "ethical" for them to use moves they developed for Tekken Characters in SFXT to create entierly new characters?

Lots of companies used Street Fighter-inspired shit in fighting games during the big '90s boom (one game even came so close to Street Fighter that Capcom won a lawsuit for copyright infringement over it).

Capcom ganking its own shit doesn't really matter. And besides, they're just going to age all the characters up a few months and do another "between II and III" sequel when it comes to Street Fighter V. No way they go with the Mortal Kombat X (or even Street Fighter III) approach and ditch most of the cast for a bunch of original fighters (and thus age-up the carryover cast).

As much as I'd like to see Capcom do that, they won't. If they do, I'll eat my whole wardrobe.

The original Street Fighter III only had two returning characters (Ken and Ryu) out of 10 (Yun and Yang weren't separated in this iteration). By the time Third Strike scarred thy DNA, the roster had leaped in size to 19: 14 originals (including the now-split Yun and Yang), four returning characters (Akuma, Chun-Li, Ryu, and Ken), and one "import" character (Hugo from Final Fight).

I don't see Capcom cutting out three-quarters of the current Street Fighter roster to do a proper (storyline) sequel for Street Fighter III. SFV will most likely be another ‘interquel’ that takes place in some nebulous timeframe between other Street Fighter games (likely IV and III this time around) so Capcom can reuse assets and put in all the fan-favorite characters without having to do the work of designing a primarily-new cast.

Take a look at Mortal Kombat X, though: the 2011 MK game killed off a fuckton of characters in the Story Mode, and MKX picks up right where that game left off. So far, of the nine characters announced, five are returning (Goro, Kano, Raiden, Scorpion, and Sub-Zero) — and while I’d expect more returning characters, there seems to be just as much a priority on new characters (especially since the MKX story will span a 25-year period that starts right after the climax of the 2011 game’s story).

What NetherRealm did with MK9’s story mode is what I'd love to see Capcom do for SFV: a linear storyline that actually comes to a satisfying conclusion and leaves the door open for future storyline installments. (In other words: the exact opposite of most fighting games, where you have to wait for the next game to figure out what ending is actually canon to the overarching storyline. *coughtekkencough*)

I would love to see Capcom make a true story-sequel to Street Fighter III that incorporates characters from II, III, and IV while also introducing new characters that have fresher concepts attached to them. Look at MKX: I know the "two people as one fighter" schtick has been done in other fighting games before, but it's still rather rare, and the Ferra/Torr combo looks like an amazing take on the concept.

I'm not asking for a revolution. I'm asking for something a little fresher than what we would probably get from Capcom based on what other companies working within the same genre are doing. Is that so wrong? :O

Oh so this is what we're arguing about.

Personally I'm not really a fan of how they did things with MK9 on the story. Killing off all of there characters just seemed silly and wasteful to me. I'm sure MKX will be fine and the new characters look great, but the way they went about it rubbed me the wrong way.

As for Capcom and cohesive stories in fighting games I don't sweat it all that much. Story isn't really a big draw for me. I just really like the characters and how they're designed/fight. It'd be nice if they did something like made like a beat'em up side game that explained the story in a more cohesive manner, but I don't really see Capcom going out of their way to shelve/retire characters and bring in new ones for the sake of the story. They tried that with New Generation and that didn't work until 3rd Strike and that took a while to catch on if I'm remembering right.

And so it's just not us talking here's a new Tekken character that uses savate.

The v1.04 patch drops in October, and I believe Omega Mode will come with that.

You will be able to play Omega Mode online, but only in non-ranked matches, and Ultra Mode will still be the tournament standard going forward. Capcom intended Omega Mode to be more "fun" than "balanced", BTW.

Well it's not technically sliding so much as it is really fucking out of order. As best as I can figure, this is the chronological order of the story as outlined by the main Street Fighter games (including the Alpha franchise):

I > Alpha (1, 2, 3) > II > IV > III

Anything else is non-canon. (Suck it, EX.)

Regarding the highly-rumored SFV: I think the story (such as it is) will fall between IV and III so they can recycle as many old characters as possible. If they actually continue the story with a direct sequel to III, I'll be amazed. (I'd also love to see them do a story mode similar to that of the recent Mortal Kombat games, but I don't think that'll ever happen in a Street Fighter game.)

The Ryu vs. Chun-Li footage is definitely new, though it looks like a refined version of the SF4 graphics running the show.

I hope they don't go in that direction for the game, though. Each major iteration of the franchise (and the Alpha part of the franchise) has its own distinct look. I don't know what direction the art for 5 could take other than a Guilty Gear Xrd-esque "2D done with 3D" look, but there has to be something Capcom can do besides taking the easy way out with "4, but refined".

No, these days game developers only take risks if they absolutely have to. They'll stick with the tried and true especially considering how strapped for cash and success Capcom is right now.

Given the appearance of Omega Mode, I doubt 5 will be a 4 clone with better graphics. Besides, I don’t recall that strike-to-Hurricane Kick combo or Chun-Li’s aerial combo from the 5 teaser being in 4.

What worries me beyond the graphics/style of the game is how they might further complicate the gameplay. We already have Supers and Ultras and Red Focus and all of this other stuff, but all those "additions" have pushed the game into the realm of "you're never going to have any fun with this unless you train to be a fighting game god". Now look back at Street Fighter II (any version of it): gameplay was easy to get into because it didn't require hours upon hours of training to understand the ins and outs of even basic-level shit. What I'd like to see from 5 is a Street Fighter game stripped down to its bare essentials again—a game made not just for fans to enjoy, but for fighting game newcomers to dig into as well.

The PS4 has sold enough units at this point that it seems financially feasible. But everything nowadays seems to get at least a PC port at some point, so I can really see it go either way. I doubt it'll go on Xbone, though.

While nothing confirmed, Sony apparently had a hand in its financial development. Ono said last July Capcom didn't have the money or manpower to make SFV.

http://www.gamespot.com/articles/ono-says-no-budget-for-street-fighter-v/1100-6411507/

Now, SFV will be on the PS4, along with a port of USFIV.

Phil Spencer also candid about the deal.

Sure.

Considering getting it but there is one question I have to know before doing so.

What is the total amount of custom characters you can make in it? This game gives you so many more options when it comes to them including being able to make your characters species other than lame saiyans, it would be a damm shame if they put a hard limit on it.

As for gameplay it looks better than the last couple of dbz games.

In the Beta some people got into on youtube it's only one, but it looked like there were slots for more. Customization options however are rather lacking. I hope you can unlock more, but as for right now, they are very minimal. The biggest problem is hair since they mostly just used other characters hair styles and outside of costumes (which I hope you can change), it's the most noticeable part of a character.

Gameplay looks pretty slow, and I'm not a fan of being able to run away and muck about in 3D space. It's been a while since I last played, but Budokai 3 did it right. "2D" in a 3D environment, plus air combat. Feels right, although it was really mashy and not much of a true fighter in that regard.

Yeah there are 8 slots for created characters on the screen but is that the total amount? Once you fill that up does it begin to scroll down or are you stuck with it. Could be worse but still with all the new stuff in terms of options more would be better.

(Talking about hair being the same thats just a staple part of Toriyama's design style, he has alot of same face/same hair in his designs, he also has alot of the same design elements in his clothing/armor and mechanical things too)

I'm wiling to bet that it's probably 8, but who knows? You have 5 different races to pick from so that gives you a chance to make two of each save for two. It's not perfect, but not bad. I am curious to see how much of an unlock fest this ends up being. Even though it makes sense for the source material, I was never a fan of unlocking moves for fighting games.

True enough about the hair, but I still wish it was expanded a little more to give it some variety so everyone's not running around looking so same-y. Even if the series can be like that from time to time. Willing to bet more options unlock as you play.

If it's 8 that works out decently well. You get a male and female Majin, "Earthling", and Saiyan so there's 6 right there. Then for you're 7th and 8th you have the genderless Namekian and Frieza race so you have enough slots to make one of everything.

And considering how RPGlike the game is, that's a decent amount to start with I think.

Also for anyone wondering, yes each race has "racial attributes" that come in the way to how their stats are dished out as well as a passive special ability and access to a (small but) unknown amount of racially locked special moves.

Fair enough. The customization can lead to a lot of options. Personally I want to try and do an all melee focused fighter and a beam spammer at minimum. Then of corse thanks to Plague, a delicious brown Saiyan girl (provided they can get some of that bod old hair the males can).

Then of corse I want to try and do a "joke" character and have him or her trained by the scrubs and jobbers of the series if they're available as mentors.

Would be interested to hear your concepts though.

Well until I see the game they aren't gonna be solid but here's the base concepts.
There's the avatar character first who I'll be taking through storymode and getting used to everything. Human male, blue hair, kaioken techniques and. I've also heard you can set up to 8 different outfits/move sets for each character so I'll likely have a "normal outfit" "training gi" "armour" variations with different setups. Maybe a move that involves the power pole since I heard it was in

Next would be a human female, red hair, young with a vaguely military theme. Give her a scouter along with any other tech accessories it gives you and a sword. Maybe have a second variant if I can find some armour styled gear that isn't Saiyan stuff along with the sword and an altered movelist.

Saiyan male was gonna do a massive guy, shaved head and monk styled robes with his tail tied around his waist in a belt style if its in. Basically like he was a saiyan who was sent to destroy a civilization as a child but ended up getting his ass kicked, then instead of finishing him off they took him in and taught him the ways of peace.

Saiyan female would oddly enough also be a (teenage) brown/black girl, still has a tail and with "alien civilian" clothing, like she was from an offshoot saiyan community that while they trained their fighting abilities were not conquerors or invaders. Would give her the SSJ1 transformation, could be like she seems weaker but has great power hidden within her.

The Majin male and female would be small kid-sized fighters, mischievous siblings with yellow or orange flesh instead of pink. was thinking of making one more punchy while the other is more blasty. Super Ghost Kamikaze attack for their ultimate?

Namekian would be a mutant, pure white skin colour instead of green, odd eye colour, taking advantage of the facial/head/antenna details to give him ones that don't look like a normal namekians. A lonely individual that doesn't know who spawned him. Would have the Giant Form transformation.

Little less sure what to do for the Freiza-race guy, need to wait and see what the options are for them (hope you can take details from Cooler's ultimate form since it looked the best). His main thing would be that he's not an evil dick, instead he just wanders about being a chill dude.

These are only the first set, think I'm gonna split this into two posts just to be safe.

For another human I was going to make a large boisterous guy who was purely physical in his moveset, would have no ki blast specials or even the ki charging ability (its a move in itself and you don't need to equip it), was thinking dark skin with boots/jeans/bomber jacket style clothing and a hat.

Another Majin male, The Blub, would make him as big and as wide as possible while giving him all the defence and regeneration buffs possible. A dopey looking giant that can take a beating.

Was thinking of making another female Majin but in this case tall and styling her to be as elegant as possible, maybe give her an unusual skin like blue instead of the usual pink. Would be nice if there was some ice-based moved in the game since I'm sure there's been a few in the series.

A young space-drifter of a namekian, would wear more spacey/techy stuff unlike the usual baggy clothes & robes of his people. Make him more attack-based in terms of his moveset and buffs, maybe give him a move that uses tech or a weapon if possible.

Another female saiyan, an actual woman in this case, would have all the super saiyan transformations availible equipped. If I got the pre-order bonus with the extra costumes would have two variants, one with her in casual clothing that would be worn by someone like a farmer or miner and a second where she would have the golden saiyan armour. Basically her deal is being a shining 'hero' who shows up when the world is at stake to punch the threat in the face with her amazing strength but as soon as thats done she immediately goes back into seclusion in the wilderness away from people. (Its a bit like how the heroes normally are in dbz but she is even more seclusive and its a stronger contrast when she suddenly appears as a glowing goddess of war in shining armour)

Has a concept for making another saiyan character but don't think its possible. The idea was for him to be 'naturally' super saiyan all the time, would have a sword and be dressed like a primitive barbarian, which he would be. Just wandering around his backwards world in a primitive manner world hunting and eating wild beasts while crushing all who challenged him.

Would likely start thinking up more once I could see the options available in the editor, it would be the same with how I get when playing the DW: Empire games where I spend all my time making and playing new characters whenever inspiration hits me.

For Humans, you NEED the power up special move. Humans get a power boost if their Kei is full.

The Buu male idea works since the males get a lot of defensive buffs but apparently are super slow.

Namekian's... honestly kind of shit. High health and low damage with regeneration when their health is low enough. Might make one for beam spam or support rolls in 3v3. Not really happy with how they've turned out. As for clothing, there is a lot to pick from it seems, each with minor stat buffs it looks like so you may be able to get your tech slug man after all which is pretty rad.

For Saiyan, great apes and giant fights were confirmed to return so I've got my fingers crossed that they'll be available as a transformation option. Seeing all the Seiyans running around without tails was really rubbing me the wrong way. If I can go rage monkey I'll use that and let all the super special snowflakes turn Super Saiyan into meaningless commonplace like the show did.

My issue is I tend to think more in terms of fighting ability than storyline or plot behind the character which I guess I should work on as it may open more up.

As for ice attacks; there may be some since there are a SHITLOAD of attacks in the game. I also hope that weapons, which thankfully are only used in some attacks if you have the right cloths equipped, have options other than swords; not that I'd ever use them.

Speaking of Xenoverse character creation it would be pretty cool if they kept expanding it in a sequel for a sales gimmick, as in adding additional races such as animal people that used to be everywhere in dragonball or being able to choose an option that turns base characters from other races into "androids" which alters their stats and gameplay like changing the way the build their energy meter.

It'd be a stretch, though. The Great Kung Lao died about 500 years before the first tournament. Are they actually saying he faked his death, though? I can't see the video right now.

It'd be pointless to complicate it that much, there's precedent in the series of ordinary earthlings coming back from the dead with no ill effects. Hell, Johnny Cage dies fighting Motaro in the original timeline but that didn't stop him from showing up in MK4 through Armageddon. (Back then, the excuse was that the opening of the Netherworld, people who were dead or locked away like him and Scorpion were able to come back. Johnny Cafe was supposed to have died fighting Kintaro, explaining his absence until MK: Trilogy came along. MK9 seems to have retconned it, slightly, to fighting Motaro instead.)

DELUSIONAL JERK RAMBLES ON ABOUT HIS DUMB SFV CHARACTER CONCEPTS HE'D LIKE TO SEE IN THE GAME BECAUSE HE HAS NOTHING ELSE GOING ON FOR HIM IN HIS LIFE

-A teen girl boxer with a curly afro who might have a grudge against Balrog depending on if he's still relevant or not.

-A pageant girl with an overbearing mother who's only doing this to showcase her father's fighting style. Also they're Canadian.

-Joe but with inspiration from Dean Ambrose and Bryan Fury. Maybe he's OG Joe's son because the timeline is bullshit anyway. He's also Cody's ward.

-An old guy who could either be Chun-Li or Juri's dad who looks like the guy from Oldboy.

-A new supercop character who uses pencak silat like in The Raid movies. Bonus points if they're a girl.

-A Krav Maga user. Bonus if girl.

-A luchadore character that doesn't suck.

-Some sort of fusion between Bison and Roses fighting style because we don't know if they're done or not.

-Someone who uses a baseball bat because The Raid/Off.

Pikachu and Gardevoir were somewhat expected, but Suicune's a bit of a surprise.

Who the fuck still likes Pikachu and is over the age of 12?

Plus, it's the mascot. It was going to be in Pokken in some form or another.

I should obviously just move on at this point, but after enjoying a series for so many years it's kinda hard to move on or ignore an aspect that you feel ruined it for you. Anyway, i'm just venting.

Too early to judge but it looks pretty meh. For some reason Western fighting games tend to come off as really sluggish and slow paced compared to Japanese ones, but that might just be a 3D models versus sprites kind of thing.

The game was canceled a long time ago (video of it only surfaced recently).

The Golem teaser is more intriguing than anything about Omen.

This was a fascinating story. Really enjoyed this guy's previous video game beta videos.

Ya, kind of regretting not buying a wiiU bundle with camecube controller adapter. No idea why Nintendo doesn't just make more.

As for Amiibo's... good old scalping. Knew I should have just bought Fox. All I ever wanted was some SF merch... oh well.

In any case... Melee has the exact same set up at EVO as last year so get ready for more hour long sets.

Eh, we dont have an Amiibo scalping problem here in sweden.
Guessing because they cost more here, like all toys.
149kr to 199kr is the standard.

Also no problems so far with the 3rd party gamecube adaptor.
Just hope I remember where I put the extra controller I got...

Between two Smash Bros (fun to play, not really to watch especially with how long sets go), Killer Instinct (tryhard inbuilt hype and general awkwardness), and Tekken 7 and MKX being way too new for mainstage (clunky unfamiliarity) means this is going to be a very sleepy EVO.

Scalping in the US is pretty bad. Little Mac for instance goes for around $50 now. When Nintendo says "limited edition" they REALLY mean it. Unless it's Pikachu and Pario, almost all of the figures are being sold for far more than their MSRP.
