Played the GGS closed beta and was even more disappointed than I thought I would be. Literally everything good about GG has been gutted, the lobby system is so bad it's comical, and even the fucking MUSIC blows. It is an omega, turbo dumpster fire and I hope it goes the way of MVCI.

I filled the survey even though I know it will probably be ignored, but I figured I owe ASW my honest opinion as a longtime fan who developed thick callouses on my thumbs from playing XX in college. I guess it gave me some kind of closure to say goodbye.

Oh well, picking up Skullgirls with my friends now since it has GGPO which makes online playable (even overseas!). The game is bretty cool too.

Skullgirls is seeing a significant upsurge, due to a variety of factors including the coronavirus. Since it has GGPO you can play with people at mid ping comfortably and it's often on sale. But those are just hooks to draw new players: once you start the game it's hard to put it down.

My buddy and I tried it for a while with no commitment but it's looking like we might take time and learn it because it's so absurdly fun to play.

Actually, the FGC would probably be the least bougie of all e-sports. It has its beginning in the grassroots, dare I say it is the working classes' esport. Most of these tournamnents were started not in a business meeting, but at someones local arcade. Or at someone's basement. And these kids doing all this were not rich suburbanites, they were kids who only had a limited amount of quarters, and so they either had to be loaded or had to be good in order to continue playing. And I do agree that overtime, it has been co-opted and brought into the more bougie aspects of esports, sponsors, advertisers, and so on. At its core, its all about the grassroots.

IMO fighting games are more expensive compared to something like league of legends, which requires a 2012 PC, a mouse and a keyboard, and an internet connection.

Modern fighting games are inevitably vendor locked to consoles due to some exclusivity deal, have DLC up the ass or super turbo editions, and if you grew up in arcades you probably want a stick which even in a poverty setup like shoe box + cheap pieces are costly and niche compared to M+KB that you also use for standard PC stuff.

Unless of course you're a fightcade chad and are content with playing KOF 98 using combo macros out the ass with other third worlders

The stick obsession is really just a FGC elitist thing, there are players who have competed at a high level with just Dualshocks and shit and because of how most fighting games process inputs in a digital manner a keyboard can be more than serviceable. In fact i'd say even for shit like Smash it's acceptable if you know how to map it properly.
Anyways, fuck ASW, fuck Nintendo, fuck Crapcom and fuck bamco. 80$+ entry price is completely unacceptable for any game and the fact that anyone's willing to defend their bullshit and suck up their rotten milkies is ridiculous. Imagine paying for frame data.

idk if i'd call it elitist any more so than using a racing wheel or a twinstick or a ddr pad is elitist. you don't *need* them by any means but these are arcade games and were designed around that method of control so it feels pretty good to play that way.

I can nearly every FRC in #Reload consistently with loads of input lag, it's not as difficult as you think it is. There aren't any 1-frame FRCs.

>The stick obsession is really just a FGC elitist thing
Disagree. Humans are creatures of habit, and a great deal of us grew up putting coins on machines to waggle some sticks and smash some buttons so it's only natural we'd want to avoid having to learn a new control scheme to do the same fushu mushus we've been doing for a lifetime.

Might be, but again, fighting against habit is a losing battle if you have an alternative to look forward to.
Not even pros who are paid for this shit are able to change controls as easy, just look at how reluctant Daigo is to play even charge characters on his sponsored hitbox.

The block button in MK creates a distinct feel which is imo inferior to normal block mechanics. It dumbs down defense too much and by consequence offense gets powercreeped in order to deal with it. For example, projectiles in MK are kinda degenerate and a majority of the cast have instant teleports, super fast overheads or teleport overheads and also the inputs have been simplified to the point nobody ever drops anything even at the beginner level, removing tension in the process.

I can appreciate the series being both a parody and a homage to cheesy 60s kung-fu films nevertheless, even though X and 11 are pure hollywood schlock.
With 9 they tried to amend both hollywood and kung fu but the end result is kinda weird in the end, still my favorite nü-kombat.

skullgirls is great and they did a really good job with some of the mechanics and character designs, or rather how each of their gameplay styles are designed (I really like how they designed grapplers like beowulf and cerebella). too bad their one chance at a revival got screwed over with EVO online getting canceled.

umvc3/mvc3 had some dumb shit for sure and definitely could have used some patches but it was great all around. kinda of ironic about the patches since mvc3 was popular for a long time and got next to nothing while mvci got regular patches till they cut support for the game due to low interest/disney leaving the game to die.

Is Jump Force a bad game? I get that it has problems, but frankly I feel like its massively overhated and the bandwagon of shitting on it really ruined the potential of a pan-shonen fandom being formed like for Super-Smash Bros and other such vidya.

Imagine, you just spent a decade fine-tuning a set of mechanics and a huge roster of characters to create one of the deepest and most balanced fighting games ever made. And then you realize: you're a capitalist. You have to compete with other developers. You have to expand your audience. And so you attempt to do so with another series at first called BlazBlue. This series is effectively Guilty Gear Lite. It shares some of its ideas but it doesn't have its depth. The idea being: only dumb games are popular. Well its experiment was reasonably successful, but that wasn't enough for you. It wasn't enough to have a side series with its own mechanics intended to appeal to its own audience. Development on that series ends/takes a long hiatus and now it's time to discard it and return to Guilty Gear. And now it's not enough to continue updating one of the most celebrated and respected fighting games ever. Now it's time to dumb down that series too. And so you discard over a decade of refinements to the characters and mechanics and make what is basically a mockery of the game and characters the fans loved. And of course, the players, the consumers, and especially the wannabe celebrities, who feel a compulsive need to compete in corporate-sponsored tournaments, are unable to say no and continue playing the superior game. Welcome to the fighting game industry. Where the quality of the game isn't what matters to people, only what's manufactured to be relevant by commercial interests.

Reads extremely salty but mostly true. One detail you missed is that the Guilty Gear IP was actually in legal hell for years (due to Sega I believe) so they had to pivot to BlazBlue until that was sorted out. Obviously I'm not saying this to excuse the direction they went with on the complexity / systems design.

Oh and despite AC+R being my favorite fighting game of all time and my main game since rollback patch, I won't pretend the game is perfect. There is so much kusoge degen shit it's unreal, and it exists all the way up to the highest level of play. Also the inputs are just absolutely brutal so if you're new you can't even do basic shit with your char. That is one thing that IMO has actually improved with modern games.

The claim was a conflict with Sammy, anyway, but I never came across a clear source that substantiated that claim beyond a rumor.

I don't feel that way at all about AC+R. I got into the series with Accent Core myself and I think its layers of depth make it actually highly appealing and approachable for newcomers. Will you be able to face off against a pro with any chance of survival? Of course not. But there absolutely is a large repertoire of basic shit to do with your character, Guilty Gear has very straightforward special move inputs compared to other fighters and quite a forgiving gatling combo input timing chain. The only real execution complaint I've ever had is the unnecessarily tight window on some Force Roman Cancels. But the solution could have been as simple as increasing the frame input window. They didn't need to dumb the game down by removing FRCs entirely.
