Did anyone play the newest King of Fighters? I heard they announced their first DLC and it re-piqued my interest.

Interestingly, I wound up getting SFV and KOFXIV within a few days of each other. When Tekken 7 comes out, I'll have the full troika of "kinda-sorta set in the real-world but also not" genre of fighters.

Tekken 7 is out now, and unlike Injustice 2 it's on PC which increases my interest a whole lot. Now I gotta decide if I take the plunge, the GB content was pretty convincing.

They've been hyping the "finale" to the Mishima arc. I know not to expect too much from a fighting game series, but I just hope it's not too ridiculous.

I mean, it's the Mishimas - if it's not ridiculous then it'll be a let down! It'd be like Metal Gear just being a regular soldier game.

Okay, fair enough. It can be ridiculous, but maybe it can at least tie up the storyline in a minimally satisfactory way? :mspac

Well I got Tekken 7, and finished the story mode. It was about as ridiculous as you would expect/want, especially with Akuma in the mix. Spoilers for the nonsense:

Spoiler :
So Heihachi's dead wife hired Akuma to kill Heihachi and Kazuya. Heihachi fully gets raging demoned and is fine, then Devil-Kazuya and Akuma are blown up by a satellite, but both are fine. Also apparently the populace are stupid and have goldfish memories.

In the meantime I messed around with making Blue Mary with the costumes, and Katarina got me closest.

I'm having fun. The lack of quarter circles is actually much easier on my old man hands these days :pac

So it's like Pocket fighter for SNK ladies since there are simple controls and powerup items? :pac

SCVI character reveals, including one new dude and one possible alt version of an old dude.

I really don't like Xianghua's new voice but her new look is a lot better than the 16th century crop top/hot pants she was stuck with last time. :pac Everyone seems to have their familiar poses and flourishes too, which is fun to see with modern tech.

I don't know if I've ever seen a fighting game as uniquely fucked up as Twin Goddesses.

I keep meaning to play some flavour of The Witcher, if something about those games didn't make me fall asleep on contact.

I love the world and lore of The Witcher, but the gameplay is balls.

Oh right, there was also news of a Street Fighter TV series just recently. Ain't much to go on yet except that it's happening, or it's been optioned to maybe kinda almost sorta happen someday, but I figure it'll be some streaming thing.

Casting ideas?

Hard to say, but one thing I've noticed is that the characters seem to be getting older-looking even as the series is basically arrested in time. It'd be really cool if *all* the characters were basically at their prime (mid-late 20s) or starting to approach the end-time (late 30s-maybe even early 40s). But it'd be really weird/kinda creepy to have, say, a 35-year old Ryu and a 21-year old Chun Li.

I gotta figure any new Street Fighter TV or movie thing will always cast the protagonists on the younger side and maybe some of the antagonists somewhat older. Ryu, Ken, Guile, Chun Li, would probably all be vaguely mid-20s. Maybe Vega would be around there, but Sagat would look sorta older, and Bison probably the oldest.

That could work. Ha, Screenrant has a dream cast and has Mads Mikkelsen as Bison. I don't know if that totally works but I would still watch the hell out of that.

Heh, Discovery has made me want more Jason Isaacs literally anywhere. He'd make a great Bison I think.

The WWE's Cesaro should be Sagat. If they could find something for Kenny Omega and Xavier Woods to do that would also be amazing.
