OK - it had to happen - a thread for fighting games! I know it won't be the most popular, won't be heavilly used - but there are a few FG fans on the forum so I though it would be nice to have a place to Nerd out and do stuff - and hey - even fight eachother!

I am a huge fan of the genre - owner and player of PS3 - SFIV, SSFIV, SSFIVA, SF X Tekken, Tekken 6, Tekken Tag HD, Tekken Tag 2, BlazBlu CE extend, KOF13, SCIV, SCV, MK9, VF5, DoA5. PS All Stars, Anarchy Reigns (?) - on Xbox SSFIV, Tekken Tag 2, SC, SCIV, SCIV, MK9, DoA4, DoA5 - on Vita BlazBlu, SF X Tekken, MK9, PS All Stars. I am a bit of a jack of all trades and master of none though!

So (and I don't expect a rush of posts here - maybe an occasional flourish!) any Fighting Talk has a welcome home here...

Mortal Kombat is free for PS3 next month with PS+ - will try that again. I missed out on Zavvi selling DoA5 for 15 though so might get Tekken Tag 2 soon as well.

I had Anarchy Reigns on preorder but cancelled it - I think Sega have left it too late to release it now. Can't see it selling well and can imagine the online being dead on arrival. I don't think it sold overly well in Japan either...

Updates Incoming!!!!

DoA5 is due an update which adds ability to upload games straight to youtube, facebook! Test Video was uploaded on youtube recently: http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=WRKMMvtZzck - update not dated as yet.

SF x Tekken is getting a massive update on Jan 29th - character tweaks aplently, recoverable health changes - the update is hefty and free - main focus is making matches faster (ie less timeouts).

I have Anarchy Reigns and I am liking it so far - but at 15 for a bit of Bayonetta action I wouldn't complain - I can't see it being a big seller tbh wjic is a shame as it needs an online community to really be a success - there is a decent SP campaign with lots of replayable challenges to chase scores and meddles on too. Won't hail it as a classic - or especially recomend it - but I am not dissapointed personally and it has the potential to put a team of fighting Zon users together which could be fun..

MK9 free on PS+ is a good thing - the US have SSFIVA which may be a clue that it is coming our way.

"Used to love Soul Caliber when I was younger."

You might love it now you are older! Xbox has a great HD update of the original Soul Calibur whch should bring back memories (there is a decent demo) - just keep your eyes off Ivy you dirty boy!

As All Stars is mentioned in the title, Kat and Emett are coming in the new year along with a new map, and will be free for one week.

No mention of a Western release as yet but this one looks like fun - JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: All Star Battle Royale (I kid you not): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=55Fh-uph_8E

Darkstalkers HD, I want asap but I have a feeling Capcom will involve some sort of dlc joke to hamper it.

Injustice: Gods Among Us, looks like it could be a laugh to play.

In reply to an earlier post on 31 Dec 2012 13:02:58 GMT
Yes - PS All Stars DLC free to everyone for a week - so even if you don't have the game yet you can nab the DLC into your DL list for free in case you ever do.

Can't wait for Kat who apparantly has floating objects around her that can be used as projectiles just like in Grav Rush

Capcom are doing a survey atm to gather fans opinions of what they should be doing in the "digital" space - http://www.capcom-unity.com/sven/blog/2012/12/20/we-need-your-input - no doubt more than one person taking the opp to have a word about DLC there?

I bet this thread has gotten more replies in it's first half hour or so of existence than Robson thought it would ;).

They've been told on numerous reports on how best to handle dlc, it's been an ongoing saga for them lol.

I wonder if they'll do something about the aspect ratio as I think all were 4.3 and not widescreen ? I've not followed that much info on what they're doing to it in this HD package.

Posted on 31 Dec 2012 13:23:24 GMT
lol - it did. And I am suitably humbled!

"Not really, they're all from Robson ;-)"

Cerberus, their re-release of Street Fighter 3 3rd Strike kept the 4:3 aspect ratio, and I think that Marvel vs Capcom Origins did the same thing. I would expect that they will do the same with the Darkstalkers re-releases too.

Now that Capcom, have signed up SSFIVAE & SFxT a lot of top players from the FGC have signed onto IPL, should be interesting to see how well the FGC implements itself into the world of esports.
