Roster and Costume video, obvious spoilers

A little thing thats rather interesting in this is that Ginyu has a costume that is Goku with a Scouter while Goku has a costume that is Ginyu.
Just an interesting way to do that thing instead of what you would expect.

Actually for one thing Goku has similar variations on his Gi because they are being accurate to the show.
Each of them are the same overall martial-arts outfit but have different symbols to represent the different masters he trained under.

Also the different 'costumes' for the series characters are not just costumes, they also have different stats and special moves, another reason Goku has so many to himself.

I get they're being show accurate, but it still feels kind of lazy and that they could have done a little more with the costume/ alt move concept. For one aside from the "super evil" versions of some characters, there aren't any specific alternate timeline ones.
This could have lead to some pretty interesting things and it feels like a completely missed opportunity.

Also in regards to many characters having outfits extremely similar to others, but having different strengths and moves, this can create some battlefield confusion especially in 2v2 or 3v3 matches. Due to the core nature of the game, this shouldn't be too problematic, but it is worth noting in my opinion.


Also the game already has an infinite: Super Saiyan then Deathball spam. If you're hit once it's game over. (super armor while charging it seems, plus another can be charged while one is already out. Also it tracks, is huge, and has a ton of hitstun.) The good news is that you can beat it by simply running away in a circle around the attacked until SSJ runs out.

Speaking of Xenoverse does anyone know the details of how the "Mentor" system is going to work for your original character?

>193170
From what I've seen, it looks like they're divided into two factions: Hero and Villain. No idea if you can train under both or if you have to define your alignment.
As far as mechanics go, it looks like they give quests and the more things you do for them the more that gets unlocked including exclusive moves. I do not know if they are unlocked for purchase or if they are simple earned and do not need to be bought.

They can also show up and assist you during story missions or power up attacks in those missions.

Money, unlocked accessories, and even moves seem like they carry over between characters as well.

You can only have 12 mentors total it looks like.
You can also only have 8 characters (unlocked through story mode)

Also there is of corse a lot of grinding to unlock things. Namely hidden characters.

You can only have 12 mentors at a time, but your mentor unlock things go to all your characters so no need to worry about grinding Goku more than once for instance.

Also some mentors are apparently very rare to encounter and will randomly spawn in the HUB city (or so it seems). Bills is among this rare breed with Goku being more uncommon.

While streaming animation, Persona confirmed that Robo-Fortune has lasers (probably making use of Mikes modification to the engine to allow for true beams). So get ready for beam assists with Peacock on point and Double anchors. RIP everyone and everything. Robo now used more for just her assists than Double used to be used for an anchor. Calling it.

>Robo-Fortune
- Hey look, it's Robo-Fortune! She has all her normals and both ground and air throws, so here she is! Welcome her with open arms and cynical nitpicking of everything, like usual. :^)

>General
- Removed non-interpolated rendering of opponent characters during super flashes on PC only. It's still there on consoles because it helps framerate, and has been there since the beginning.

>Beowulf
- Two new colors! Since I already said what they were, I won't repeat myself here. ;^)
- Moonsault wolves are now behind Beowulf; also fixed the lifebar not displaying health chunks for the first 3 hits. Thanks Kalaner!
- Improved effect for Blitzer, thanks Brian!
- Added missing frame for the end of taunt and command grab whiff.
- Fixed odd bug where if you successfully hit with Moonsault, it prevented Beowulf's team from being able to DHC into Airwulf for the rest of the game (unless you whiffed with another Moonsault). Thanks Sweetyfluff!

>Cerebella
- Damage adjustments:
- Kanchou 1400->1000.
- s.HK 625+725 -> 600+700.
- Pummel Horse 200*6 -> 175*6.
- j.D+MP 1000->800; j.HP 1000->950.

>Double
- Monster's puddle is now placed 180px in front of Double; attack startup from puddle after detecting opponent 9f -> 4f; detection area slightly smaller, attack area remains the same size.

>Eliza
- s.LP opponent knockup height returned to normal, hitstun still shorter.
- For Dive of Horus, Horace does not stop if Eliza is hit when she is the point character. He still stops if she is hit when she is an assists. 50% 66% scaling on hit still present.
- Fix bug where Throne of Isis sometimes wouldn't appear even though Eliza does the pose. Just summoning the attack was being counted as hitting with it. Thanks BDetective!
- Damage adjustments:
-- j.LK, s.HPx3 last hit (knockdown version), c.HK, all -150.
-- j.MK, s.HK 2nd hit, s.MK 3rd hit, all -100.
-- s.LK, c.LK, c.MK both hits, s.MKx2 chop, s.MP, all -50.
-- j.HK -25.
-- Sekhmet j.M -300, s.H -200, j.H -250.
Sample combo difference specifically using only the most-nerfed moves:
Sekhmet corner j.M->s.H, s.H, j.M->s.H, jump, falling j.L->j.M->s.H, s.M(all hits)->H, s.Lx3->M(all hits)->H = 9591->8088.

>Fukua
- Damage adjustments:
-- j.HK dmg 750->500, extra damage scaling removed.
-- (j.HK->)HP dmg 700->500.
-- j.HP dmg 900->800.
-- s.MP, c.MP, s.MK damage now all 550.

>Painwheel
- Unfly command returned to 2 punches / PP. Nobody really liked the other way, myself included.

Last /co/ saw of those two was that he had turned them into catgirls instead for a project that's totally not like 85% inspired by CoC. Also he said DBZ was stupid (and he's right, but it's part of the charm) so he's trying to distance things a bit.
Instead he'll probably ignore it and just draw more Katia after Kaz hospitalizes himself opening a bag of bread and misses two more months of updates.

He's the guy whose death basically starts Street Fighter, it's like Coulson dying in The Avengers, it's the death that glues a unified force against Bison together, he's Guile's trainer and though he was never actually in the games he was a top seed in the universe.

For example Bison, the main villain uses a bunch of science and magic to be one of the most powerful guys in the universe....Charlie could beat him with kicks, but (depending on which version) he is killed through an act deception by Bison and dies a hero which guides Guile to follow in his path.

To have him brought back as a subservient Frankenstein to use against Guile is like an ultimate "FUCK YOU" from Bison (at least I assume it's Bison who resurrected him.)

Hmm... Best I can say is to make sure you land he last bit on the time cop. The game tends to prevent you from getting goodies when a computer does something instead of the player. Same sort of thing happens occasionally if an NPC kills off an enemy needed to trigger a "Warning" extra.

Also holy duck balls things just don't drop.

I knew it was going to happen, but I was hoping they would have waited until MK13 to do it.
Can't get hype until I see gameplay though. His simplistic character design is going to feel really out of place in MK I think, just like how Freddy was last game and boy howdy did it not make sense for him to be there. Not to mention they totally dropped the ball on his moveset. "Hey here's a guy that is some sort of ghost that exists in dreems and murders teens there by warming and twisting himself and the dreamworld... ok now lets put him in MK and just have him throw claw glove projectiles."

So the dlc pack for Xenoverse just added two new mentors, and I still have 3 1/2 off the base game mentors still to train.
Its just using the techniques they give you and choosing them as support characters in Parallel Quests that raises their friendship right?

How rare is Beerus as a mentor? I saw him in passing but didn't talk to him since I was still in the middle of learning from cell, did I just pass up a gift from god and will be lucky to see him again any time soon?

nigga you dun fucked up, but cell's kind of rare too...

For mentor grinding, you don't even need the mentor with you, just score well on the quests. Bringing your mentor may raise their approval of you slightly higher, but I don't think its been proven yet. They do seem to gravitate towards you more and help knock off enemies attacking you or double team more frequently than normal however. They'll also give you Z boosts once in a while if you max them out.

As for using their skills, aside from evasive moves, you absolutely need to do that. I had 18 at max for the longest time and she wouldn't let me do her last mission, then I decided to just spam her latest attack a lot and eventually it opened up.

Yeah, that's kinda what happened in SFxT’s early stages. From the SF Wiki:

>In early developments of Street Fighter X Tekken, footage was shown of Ryu and Chun-Li's win quotes to Poison (i.e. "Your looks really can be deceiving. I'll be careful not to fall into your trap" and "You're not very lady-like at all! I felt like I was fighting against a guy..." respectively). Other characters were later revealed to have quotes along the same lines, some even worse, including Kuma outright saying Poison smells like a man and doubting she's in any way a woman. Sometime after the footage was shown, a prominent LGBT rights group contacted Capcom about the dialog, stating that it was highly offensive, ignorant and insensitive towards trans individuals. Capcom agreed to change the quotes, leaving only Yoshimitsu's remark about her being a "freshly-recruited kunoichi", Craig Marduk's more vague comment that he doesn't sweat the small stuff and only cares that she's attractive, and Poison's mirror match quote where she tries to recall a song, "The something-or-other in the mirror", referencing Michael Jackson's "The Man in the Mirror."

Naw, while those two are made of potentially offensive stereotypes nobody gives them shit in-universe and their traits aren't used to demean them, whereas for Poison it's not just the players but even the characters who tend to be "ewwww she has/had a dick gross" or "she's not really a woman" which is pretty closeminded stuff. A better comparison would've been if Deejay was like Sambo or if characters called him a lazy darkie after fighting her, or if male characters freaked out over Eagle supposedly hitting on them. I do agree T. Hawk needs to be changed though, quite a few Indigenous Americans and Mexicans can't stand him for a long time. Most Jamaicans I know are pretty cool with Deejay though.

>This PC shit is getting out of hand.

Political correctness is for politicians. For everyone else, it's called "not being an asshole".

The whole "Poison's not a real woman" is the kind of shit transgendered people (as a whole group) face every day. Capcom recognizing that and pulling back on those types of lines in SFxT was a welcome gesture towards that particular community. Remember, they could've done away with all the hints of her (still canonically questionable) transgender status and had everyone refer to her in ways that didn’t even hint at her gender.

As for Dee Jay and T. Hawk: Dee Jay is an edge case (and >194334 already explained why), though I'd agree that T. Hawk is far more of a broadly-drawn stereotype and needs an overhaul. But even so, that is Capcom's call to make, not mine. While I'd love to see a bit more cultural sensitivity on their part, I also understand that my desires alone won't trump Capcom’s design decisions. An organized effort to make Capcom change any character—from T. Hawk to Poison—would need to happen for any change to occur.

It’d be one thing if it was just a single character who was a known asshole that was mocking Poison's gender status. But when you have two of the franchise’s ‘heroes’ doing it, you really gotta wonder why that's necessary.

Stereotypes are one thing, but even black characters in SF aren't treated with blackface or such.
And besides, if you really want to look at it right, T. Hawk could've possibly portrayed one of the northern native tribes such as the Tarahumaras, thus breaking the stereotype of Mexico's only natives being Mayans/Aztecs, given the northern part of that country was anthropologically very similar to America's south western native tribes. But then again, its not like it's not a stereotype either way. Apparently racial controversy gets ignored when it helps complain about another controversy.

So far 8 is the most you can have and with the ability to save costume and move sets to swap between characters, that's all I find that I'm really needing.

I will say that I wish there was a bettwe way to reset your stats though or at least change your stats based on your costume/ move selection presets you make. Collecting the dragon balls just to switch back and forth from making my Frieza a melee rushdown to a midrange comboer is pretty annoying.

Ok guys. Guys.
I've been talking to the Skullgirls guys. They've finally given me the greenlight and the ok to tell you guys that TeethandHunger will be a playable fighter in the Skullgirls game. totally not a late April Fools joke
Ok, now let me tell you about the story.
So one day T.Hunger comes across the body of some orphans killed by the slavers. Needing fresh heads to speak with (perhaps even feeling sorry for them), Hunger takes the freshest heads and attaches them to a slimy, tongue like organ. That organ connects directly to the monsters brain. The "tongue" semi-revives three heads, and Hunger is able to speak. The drawback is that TeethandHunger gets strong urges from the three heads. The urge to find their friends. Acting on these feelings (pitying the three perhaps) walks toward the bright lights of the city along with Bob, the giant who lives inside T.Hunger.

Once you finish the storyline, you unlock a NEW ONE! YUP, those guys fucking love so much that wrote up a whole new one. With a different model too. Shown in the next post. Ok, this might all be a late april fools gag

Ok, the second storyline goes like this:

Yep! Miss Fortune and I get team up in this storyline! Those nasty gangster got the jump on her and made off with her body. Unfortunately for them her head rolled into the alley that TeethandHunger was passing though. Not wanting to pass up a good head (because random severed heads rolling around is actually a common thing where Teeth is from) pick her up and attaches her to the tongue. T. Hunger is suddenly confused by the fact that not only can he not speak, but the head is now talking on it's own. Miss Fortune has taken parshel control of Hunger's body and can also hear his thoughts.
The two come to terms on this arrangement quickly as the gangsters come to claim the head of Miss Fortune. The unlikely two delver Monstrous PUN-isment to the no good gangsters. Seeing a retreat is in order the remaining thugs run off with Miss Fortune's body. Having survived the Head and the monster have a chat. They come to an agreement: Retrieve Miss Fortune's body, eat anyone who gets in their way, and make puns. Make puns everywhere!


The Skullgirls creators are going to bring back the voice actress for this. Redoing all Hungers lines in her voice.
I wish. Happy late april/may fools day. Maybe one day guys. Maybe one day.

Technically, it was likely 6 that made Jason an undead revenant. From 2 to 4, he was just a guy who could withstand a hellacious amount of punishment. 6 was where Tommy Jarvis spiked a dead Jason in the chest and a bolt of lightning took care of the rest.

(Personally? I was kinda hoping NRS would give him an Über-Jason costume for shits and giggles. Though I suppose the “take the mask off and drop it to the ground” win animation would’ve run into problems there.)

Six is when he gets that shock therapy courtesy of dumbass Tommy and truly becomes superhuman, but a number of fans (myself included) count the end of part three as the last we see of a living Jason, his wound being too great to be surviivable untreated, and being obviously declared dead by the police.

I honestly think that not giving him at least one other movie's Jason look as a costume was a missed opportunity.

I'm wondering if it's some sort of distribution rights or other such nonsense issue. Like, "Oh, (Insert company here) had the DVD and likeness rights for Jason X, so he can't get a costume from that because they wanted money, but the original was okay."

Well now that he's out and awful and I was right cuz he's BORING AS SHIT.

But just to address this, Jason is a revenant the entire series, the dream from the first movie is psychic warning Jason is about to be resurrected, canonically he drowns as a child and is resurrected by his father whom he immediately killed for abandoning him and his mother, a side effect of his resurrection is having aged and further deformed into adulthood.

Now they cut this from the part 2 and just left it a "mystery" as to how he survives dying from drowning as a child to come back in part 2 because they wanted it more about the kills, but this is all still canon and from the official comics, it's Jason's father who builds the shrine to his wife's head.

Jason cannot be killed, even after the damage Tommy inflicted he was alive, just dormant, even if Tommy hadn't caused his electo-ressurection which beefed him up he'd have still resurrected eventually.

Functionally, they made Jason into a fantastic fighting game character, especially for Mortal Kombat. Interesting mechanics, great moves, and pretty good balance overall. It sounds like what you want is Fanservice: The Character; you want references and callbacks that realistically could get in the way of being a viable character to just play as. Which is fine to think so, your opinion is your own after all.

Hmmm you are taking a comic as canon, one that pulled out of it's ass that Jason's dad was part of a lineage of warlocks and that he owned the Necronomicon. I've read some of the novelizations to the movies, and the one based on Jason Lives does have his dad showing up, and the old man was unaware of all the weird shit going on with his stranged son.

GET READY FOR THE NEXT CHALLENGER. From EventHubs:

>The next character reveal likely won't be coming from Street Fighter 4 according to a recent Tweet from Street Fighter 5's producer, Yoshinori Ono. In it, he states that the new character is someone we haven't seen for a while. That knocks out a ton of options, and leads into the hype of looking at other Street Fighter Alpha characters or Street Fighter 3 characters making an appearance. It might even mean the release of a fighter from the first game.

Dragon Punch is far far different than a quarter circle and even pros will flub the input from time to time. The problem for me is that I simply cannot understand how anyone at all can ever say that a quarter circle motion is difficult or at least complain about it to such a degree as the smash community is as though it was dialed combos in MK or even the pretzel motion. As stated earlier I have seen people from all walks of life and all age groups quickly pick it up and figure it out so I cannot see how anyone can ever say that the quarter circle is a complex motion to make.

I mean seriously, fuck off with that. No one thinks you're impressive because you can play video games better than six year olds or little old grannies. You get enjoyment out games like that, and that's fantastic. But it is in no way something worthy of jockeying for status over.

Boy Ryu feels weird.
And like usual, I keep bringing out the wrong things at the wrong time when I try to use his advanced inputs.

It's a fucking quarter circle motion, a simple swing of your thumb, something that has been used by fighting games since ever. That's like, the most anti-hipster thing I can't think of, something so common and normal that it would be ridiculous to call it "obscure" as the whole hipster cliche goes. And I think you are missing out the little detail that plenty of Smash fans (and I do play Smash, I am one of them, not a "jock") obssess over the old argument of Smash's status as a "real" fighting game, so it is funny that when prompted over what's normalt fighting game inputs they get lost. That you are getting up in arms, getting so mad, trying to argue that a quarter of circle motion is complicated and complex, and seeing it as some sort of witch hunt against the poor Smash fans (of which again, I am one, but I can see the hilarity of the situation) that in reality it's just some laughs at the expense of an ironic situation, is madness to me.

You’re mocking people—either for not being able to do a joystick motion consistently or for not having experience with doing the motion at all, but you’re doing it. And you’re acting like you’re better than the Smash fans who are having trouble with performing the inputs. And that isn’t making you look like anything but a douchebag.

I’ve played fighting games ever since I could put a quarter into a Street Fighter II machine (and even before that if you count Yie Ar Kung Fu and International Karate as fighting games). I went from never getting the Hadouken motion right to pulling it off consistently (enough)—and that was after months of on/off playing SFII in the arcade. And yeah, I have sympathy for the people who think the QCF is “difficult” because I didn’t immediately get it, either. So you’d do well to cool it on making yourself sound better than the people who don’t get the QCF, be a little more welcoming and helpful towards people who want to learn how it’s done, and be a little less willing to laugh at them because they don’t know how to do a goddamn joystick motion (or at least do it consistently).

Probably only a select few elitist that need approval from the KoF crowd, I'm guessing. Or whoever it is calls Skullgirls the My Little Pony of fighting games.

Why does it matter who it's coming from? You're still acting like you're better than other people because of how easy you find QCF. Even if it's a 25 year old hardcore gamer who would find the game more appealing without having to put in QCF motions, why are they not allowed to feel that way in your mind?

None of these people, but I kind of have to agree. The (small) handful of people whining on a few smash forums do deserve to be mocked a bit if they can't do such a basic input.

I think a lot of the "outrage" people are having here stems from the fact that the people ribbing those who can't Hadoken is that they are seeing what they feel. The casuilization of Fighting Games. Or rather who companies like Capcom and others seem to focus on when they want to make fighters "more accessible" such as the auto block gem debacle in SFxT.

There is a skill gap involved in fighters to be certain and the very first gate is execution. however for simple motions most everyone can do a simple quarter circle as discussed and making fun of those who can't figure it out is, in my opinion, on the level of making fun of people who can't figure out that you need to jump over goombas.

It's funny for a minute, then it just gets sad. In a world that is rapidly becoming so godamn PC about everything, it's important to realize that there are things out there deserving of a good ribbing and this is one of them.

and it's not like they can't just use regular smash commands with him anyway, he just gets better if you can clear the super small execution gap he has.

Political correctness is for politicians. For everyone else, it’s called NOT BEING AN ASSHOLE. You wanna be an asshole? Don’t be shocked when someone tells you that you’re acting like one.

The “outrage” stems from people like you and the guy justifying your mockery by essentially saying “these people don’t speak my language”. When it comes to games, each genre has its own “language”—be it specific lingo or controller motions or whatever. If you mocked a relative newbie to FPS games for not being able to do something “basic”—something that’s so second nature to seasoned FPS players that they barely think about it—you’re doing the same thing as mocking fighting game newbies for not “getting” the QCF.

And I chose the language analogy specifically because this feels similar to a native English speaker mocking someone who doesn’t speak English well and struggles to pronounce even basic words we don’t think twice about saying every day. The mockery comes from a place of ego: you mastered it and can do it without thinking twice, so why can’t these worthless chumps?

That’s why I have a problem with mocking Smash players who don’t/can’t get the QCF: maybe they want to try and get it, but all you’ve given them is scorn and derision—rather than, you know, a fucking chance to learn. You say all this crap about the casualization of fighting games as if Smash is the future of ALL fighting games, when you know that isn’t true in the slightest. It’s all a way for you to continually mock Smash fans for playing “Babby’s First Fighting Game” and feel superior about how you know all the latest SF4 tech and how you can keep up with Mahvel 3 commentary at EVO.

You don’t want to help Smash players learn and get better and maybe lean them into “better” fighting games. You want to feel smug about something so basic being second nature to you. That you mock people for what you perceive as an “entry level” part of the fighting game “language” says far, far more about you and your ego than it ever will about Smash players or the “casualization” of fighting games. If this is how the rest of the FGC reacts to “casual” Smash players, I’d rather hang out with the “casual” Smash players and have fun.

People like you make me ashamed to call myself a fighting game fan.

are the people complaining about quarter-circle motions saying that they shouldn't be in smash?

if not, it's not actually a problem

it's the difference between being a newbie and being a scrub, the fgc of all people ought to know that

I'm excited. He looks cool still, despite being out of shape. I guess I'm just happy that there's more than just Bison's grey hair (I thought he had new forever young bodies to swap into?) that indicates age, considering that Ryu, Chun-Li, and Cammy specifically, barely look a few years older than 4, let alone 3.

I want them to be far more daring with the designs. I know these are the money making iconic darlings, but absolutely NO ONE would be upset if we got Gouken Aged One Armed Post Oro Ryu, yknow.

>If you’ve seen recent Street Fighter V footage from E3 you’ve probably noticed something a little different about Chun Li. People are remarking that because Chun Li’s breasts act as if they were made out of jello, Street Fighter has gone “full Dead or Alive” in the upcoming sequel.

>This is not actually the case, though! Fighting game commentator James Chen reports that Chun Li’s absurd breast physics are actually a bug. Capcom associate producer Peter Rosas confirmed this peculiar hiccup to me this morning.

>“The whole Chun-Li jiggle thing is a glitch that only happens on the second player side of the E3 build and it will be fixed,” Rosas said.
