Fighting Game Catch-All

It is quite a cool game and even cooler to look at in motion. I think because of the amped up speed and juggling of three fighters I've had a hard time really getting into it.

Y'all have me considering double dipping DBFZ just to be able to play with another crew of people.

Been having a great time with friends on it on the Xbox.

The Turtles are out for Injustice 2. I've played their tutorials, and I'm hardly an expert, and furthermore not to overhype them, but they might be the greatest addition to a game ever.

Speaking of tutorials and Injustice 2, playing Dissidia (which I do quite enjoy) really emphasizes that as lacking as Injustice 2's tutorial is as a teaching tool, it far exceeds its peers by virtue of the fact that it exists.

I was playing around in the Turtles frame data figuring out some stuff last night and had the same thought about frame data. Are there any other fighting games that provide frame data to the degree that Netherrealm does?

Yeah, so I think I have a problem.

I love buying and configuring sticks.

I just bought a Hori Fighting Edge so that I have a second PS4 stick to go along with my silent RAP4. Now, the reasoning behind that is that for some reason my girls really like playing Dragon Ball FighterZ and they prefer using a stick.

Except I also have 2 360-era mad cats that I could have bought Brooks boards for and instead I got a new one >.> In my defense, my RAP4 doesn't have a headphone jack.

Anyway, new stick means:

Buying new buttons (very excited for new buttons)
Buying a new 8 gate (which means a focus attack order)
And if I'm ALREADY placing a FA order...
bought a 2lb and a 4lb spring to see which I like better
bought a new actuator to see if I like it better.
Part of the reason I went with the fighting edge was because I really like the hayabusa stick in the RAP4 and I wanted it to be consistent.

Anyway, I'm also pretty bad at fighting games and none of this is in any way shape or form justifiable.

I have a problem.

I'm likely going to get detachable sticks and mod both PS4 sticks with detachable USB cables. And art (I'm researching) but that's for another time.

Nah, you're good.

Many people love tinkering or restoring cars and aren’t amateur or pro racers.

Also damn you for reminding me the Fighting Edge exists.

DBFZ was wonderful until I did the thing I do where I decided I wanted to learn a little more about it and try some more advanced things

All I learned is that I can't do those things

That's every fighting game ever. Practice practice practice

When I post, it's spam according to cloudflare?

Anyway, DBFz is amazing with a group around your level.

The meta has progressed far enough that watching top 8 at NCR was super fun yesterday. I didn't like high level play before.

I have enough hours in to tell me there's no amount of practice that's going to make this stick any better than any other fighting game I've ever played

This is my experience every time I think "I could get more into this one!" with a fighting game. You'd think I'd learn eventually and know better by now.

I guess I'm bad at learning that too

I bought on Xbox One because it's where my friends went and they've all of course stopped playing already and gone back to Elite Dangerous or whatever, so my "group" has already abandoned ship.

NCR was great, but also watching the pro stuff is what led me to attempt maybe learning more, so double-edged sword, that.

It is, it really is.

We'll probably get another scrubs SF night going this week after the patch tomorrow if you want to get your fighting game fix.

And there she is!

I can finally play Vanessa, Angel, Mary! Whoo! Now I can think about, buy, and never actually play three different fighters this year (KOF, BBTAG, SC6)!

She looks terrible though and I'm not one of those who dissed XIV's graphics.
And she isn't ripped.
I hope she's released on Steam soon.

My favorite virtual action figure dress-up system with a fighting game attached, Injustice 2, got a sizeable update that I think turns everyone's game into the "Legendary Edition." Max character level is 30, a bunch of skins are, I think, available, lvl 30 characters have a slot for an augment (ATK+/DEF-, etc.), and most importantly...more gear! I've seen Joker with a shirt and tie, Canary seems to have some sort of ninja outfit, there's a capeless Supergirl, and mercifully, the gave Green Arrow a hood. A bit of a modern cliche, yes, but I do think GA works with a hood. Now they should remove his ugly ass baseball caps. Seriously, baseball caps?
