[Fighters] Soul Halibut

I'm ready go tonight. There's a party, alright. We don't need the raisin for joy, oh yeah. Tick down to midnight.

Seong Mi-na's a lock for Soul Calibur 6 so that's my main settled right there



her costume is bad but so is everyone else's, be real, we're grading on a spectrum here

meanwhile, for you SNK fan(s), Terry grew some Bogards

Shocked Seong Mi-Na made the first round draft from a Soulcalibur reboot, but I'm not complaining. She's rad.

Fatal Cutie. Busty Wolf. Et cetera.

It's kinda fun genderbending Terry, but couldn't they just put Mary in his hat, or use Terryphile Alice? Surely there are enough loved SNK Heroines without having to flip one of the guys.

I'm sad they leaned into the "Are you okay busta wolf" meme.

It seems like it has some good ideas, like the super meter getting longer when you have lower health... but it's mostly an example of how SNK will license their characters out to anyone.

That was cool to watch, I really liked the look of MK3.

I'm curious how good the CAC is compared to previous entries.

I have zero memory of how it worked in SC5, but I remember the stats on costume pieces in SC4 being a little annoying so it'd be nice if they've moved past that by now. Someday I'd also like to see the SC character creator build a new system around custom fighting styles, too, rather than just taking moves/weapons from the core roster. That's a much tougher ask, of course.

Anyway, at least cosmetically, the new character creator is looking pretty great. (I'd probably mostly use it to make Mitsuba and The Turks, as always.)

Still not quite "Del will spend $80 on this" great, but someday on sale or whatever, sure.

e: overall it sounds like Soul Calibur 6 is the best since the first two, so that's nice to hear. For all my issues with the last couple (SC5 especially) this is still easily my favourite fighting series.

Every character in Street Combat looks like they were drawn in MSPaint.

Back to Soul Calibur 6 character creation, though: behold... THE CUBE

First DLC guest character is a certified banger:

So, I'm looking at these KoF games on sale on PSN. If I'm mostly looking for nostalgic gaming, and I played '95 in the arcades, which is better: '97, '98, or Orochi?

Main, I suck at fighting games, now.

I got '98 UM. I bombed pretty hard on Arcade (lost the second match; barely won the first), so I'm in Practice Mode right now, with Kyo. I can pull off Wicked Chew-to-Masticate-to-Oxidation, but I can't seem to get the hang of the timing for Poison Nawfest-to-Recitation of Sins-to-Verdict. I think I've managed to pull it off twice, but most times, I can't even get the Recitation off.

And, these direction buttons are murdering my thumb. The stick just isn't working for me.

Edit: These share and touch buttons are very annoying for a fighting game. I keep hitting them.

That actually doesn't look bad. I was expecting it to look weird. Her face and hair look weird, though. And, her boobs are too large, but that's just the way SF is headed, from what I can tell.

Street Fighter characters have always leaned towards overexaggerated features, sort of like Blizzard (at least pre-Overwatch). I wanted Cammy to have pants for so long, and am kinda sad that it had to be a cosplay of a different character that did it.
