I know my friend will lose his mind if they make another Blazblue game. I rarely heard from him after that game came out lol. But the minute I saw that dedicated servers would be available for free, I immediately thought of how great that will be for fighting games. I'm sure he was happy to read that.
33 things to know about X1: http://www.oxm.co.uk/61886/features/the-xbox-one-33-things-you-need-to-know/
I want SF5 on Xbox One/PS4!!!! 3rd strike animation and something similar in gameplay would make me cry. But ya, dedicated servers would make the whole online thing that much better when it comes to fighting games.
I remember them saying we'd have to wait until 2016-17...
Because they burnt out the series this gen. Other fighting games have had a surge since the OG SF4 came out, while SF4 has seen a drop and Capcom says there is an over saturation of the genre. It's not the genre, it's just Capcom. They know they need to take a break from the series. Plus the producer even said a few months ago he doesn't even have a budget or resources for the next installment (SF5).
Capcom's best bet would be to try and port Ultra SF4 to next gen systems to at least get gamers on board or else they are going to loss more market share.
I dont get it...what is so deep about fighting games then?
LMFAO, this guy has absolutely no clue.
...still waiting for a reason. One single reason why a fighting game is even worth getting excited about.
I enjoy a couple of them and i can tell you why, but thats not the conversation. Now please, gurus of the fighting genre...enlighten me with your sage wisdom
Fighting games are like chess. The amount of thinking that goes on is huge. There are so many factors to consider. Spacing, safeness of your moves, safeness of your opponents moves, priority, damage, range, thinking ahead, reading your opponent, reactions,the neutral game, etc. It goes on and on. If you even tried to learn how to play, you would see that you need to learn at least the fundamentals to be decent. Fighting games might seem one dimensional if you play it for 2 minutes in a arcade, but if you actually decide to put even a little bit more time in it, you'd see that its not.
Go on GGPO, play some games, and tell me how many matches you win. If its one dimensional, then it shouldn't be hard.
