Now that SF6 has been out for a while, people are beginning to look forward to Tekken 8 and other assorted titles to carry the fighting game torch into 2024.  I'm not sure how much there will be to say about those games when they come, but in the meantime there are a couple topics which I figured bore discussing.

>Them's Fightin' Herds will end active development after 2 additional characters.  Story mode is cancelled.
I went trawling through the Steam and developer forums for this announcement to see what the community reaction was, but there wasn't much helpful.  I was able to find some statements from the developers from as recently as the start of November where they promised story mode content would come for free at a later date.

>Rivals of Aether 2 asks for $200,000 to help cover costs going into 2024 . . . after investing more than $2 million throughout development
<"We want to make the best tournament-level platform fighter."
<they currently have $570,000 with 17 days to go in the crowdfunding campaign

Obviously game development is hard, expensive, and risky, so asking for more money throughout development can sometimes be necessary.  But I can't help but feel as though hyperfocus on the competitive scene is what always ends up killing games that aren't named Mortal Kombat.

Some more info on the TFH situation and a short summary of the game for people who hadn't paid attention.
>2011-2012, at the height of the ponyfucker fandom, some guys decide it would be fun to make a pony fighting game
>the original Fighting is Magic prototype is shared around online, and looks somewhat complete despite being made in Fighter Maker 2000, a drag-and-drop piece of garbage engine
>in 2013, indie fighting game Skullgirls starts a crowdfunding campaign, and one of their stretch goals was allowing the Fighting is Magic devs to use the Skullgirls engine
>this goal was hit, which essentially gave a bunch of amateur autists access to one of the most sophisticated fighting game engines available at the time (and honestly, it's still one of the better ones today)
>Hasbro, getting wind of something relating to MLP and lots of money being raised for some kind of smelly gamer tournament, hit the FiM devs with a Cease and Desist order
>they complied

>2-3 years pass and the team resurfaces as Mane6 and a crop of legally distinct four-legged hoofed mammal characters for their fighting game (designed by Lauren Faust, creator of MLP:FiM)
>they start a crowdfunding campaign, which meets its goals of getting 7 characters and a story mode, among other things such as physical rewards and console ports
>after much hardship and many missed deadlines, the game releases into early access on Steam in 2018
>it's a rough product, but the Skullgirls engine means it runs better and has better netcode than most fighting games (read: it actually works)
>the team irons out balance problems, adds polish, adds a PvE multiplayer mode, and story mode chapter 1 is released
Personal note here: the story mode chapter 1 is better than most fighting game single player modes.  It controls like a platformer and has unique enemies with simple attack patterns, platforming puzzles, and some minor exploration.  There are boss encounters that feel like platformer boss fights with multiple phases, background/foreground mechanics, and alternate starts or endings depending on how the player moves.  One boss fight involves the player character being ambushed while a dialogue box is still onscreen, and both she and the attacker will speak differently if the player dodges the incoming attack.

After this came radio silence followed by infrequent balance patches, some additional characters, and a buyout from publisher Modus.  No new story mode content was produced for several years, and just the other day the devs announced there would be none more made at all.

Exactly, and that's why they should stop pandering to the 0.5% of tourneyfag niggers and gooks.
Normal people want to have fun with fighting games, not think they are serious business.
These are the same fags that don't want alternate costumes, story mode, cool stages (that would be 'distracting' for tournaments) alternate game modes, titties, and everything that is fun.
These faggots hate fun and taking showers so why should devs cater to these pieces of shit?
Fuck them, fuck evo and fuck whoever gives these tryhard retards any attention.

Thing is, they got Lauren Faust to write a story for them, years ago. They were only procrastinating on the mechanical aspect of it, while adding paid DLC and then making it not paid shortly after in an attempt to boost game sales that never came. 
They also already made and released one sixth of the story mode and said the other ones should be done within a year, then pushed that date away for multiple years because muh covid. So I'm not even sure what aspect they were twiddling their thumbs on, I guess adding a load of stages specific to the plot or some shit.

Considering Chaos Breaker had an artillery cannon on wheels and a corpse on a horse as playable characters I can't see why Fatlus couldn't do a fightan' with Mara frontally assaulting Girimekhala.
Problem is, most regular fighting game players would rather a game filled with scrawny faggots over one featuring cool looking monsters. As is with most games, a lot of the weirder characters always tend to score lower than the more normal looking characters in popularity charts, so a game that exclusively features bizarre looking creatures would be a money sink to develop.
I have no doubt, if they had the opportunity to request another fighting game, Atlus'd be doing the Persona prancing lala homo men, and even if they decided to go with real SMT, they'd only feature the human cast with the demons themselves being relegated to assist attacks.

You're describing an arcade mode, which was only barely tolerable for a literal arcade machine between player matches.  Console fighting games are held to higher standards, especially given that stuff like Mortal Kombat had full-fledged single-player modes with mini-games and unlockable collectibles.  Soul Calibur also had great single player modes with lots of fights using different parameters to make situations feel different.

TFH is was trying to be more like that.  Even chapter 1 of the single player is a couple hours long, and has a Deep Lore™ exposition dump at the front.  You can go to 29:00 in the YouTube video to see some basic platforming looks like, and 38:30 for some basic fights against enemies.  There's even a system where nearby enemies will be added to fights, which gets used in the PvE mode in online lobbies where you run around a mine and fight predators.  The first boss fight is at 43:00, which I think is a great showcase of the engine and mechanics, but there's a more advanced boss around 1:18:00.
Vid related shows some of the possibilities of the Skullgirls engine being extended to handle beat-em-up stuff and 3D stuff.  You can skip the first two minutes.

I would be more sympathetic if they hadn't been handed every advantage (crowdfunding money, a great engine, a legion of sycophants) and been given lots of time to make it good.  Obviously none of them planned for the project to continue for almost a decade but if they had just said "we overestimated our capabilities and we're sorry" then that would give some kind of closure.  The total, absolute radio silence has burnt through any goodwill they may have started with.

<"We want to make the best tournament-level platform fighter."
<they currently have $570,000 with 17 days to go in the crowdfunding campaign
*Pardon me, that's $680,000.  I fat-fingered that.  It's still kind of incredible how much money they raised so quickly.  Though if their community is composed of people who buy skins for characters they can't play in games that aren't released yet, perhaps I shouldn't be surprised.

I thought about including this with the OP but I didn't want to overload people with info.  RoA2 is planned to release sometime at the end of 2024, which itself is a subtle admission that development is taking longer or going slower than they thought; the previous release date just said "2024" which you'd reasonably assume to be sometime in the first half of the year.

Anyway, the game overall looks promising but it doesn't seem to be innovating in any way.  Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl 2 recently released with a completely new style of meter mechanic that hasn't been found in any kind of platform fighter/smash clone, but RoA2 just seems to be more of the same "Melee but with different characters and slightly different mechanics" that the first game had, which is part of the reason it never took off among casuals.  The increased production values will ensure it looks better, which is nice, but I don't know why people would play this when Melee already has an online netplay client with rollback netcode.  Perhaps the cute furry girls like Fleet and Maypul will result in an abundance of furry smut and give the game some kind of identity.  But I'm not sure.

The focus on competitive tryharding extends to the stages; the Kickstarter lists "five balanced starter stages and 5 varied counterpick stages" which is an indication the tryhard Smash Bros. ruleset has infiltrated their skulls and taken root in their brainstems.  I normally like seeing these types of games come up with stages that are more varied the final destination and battlefield but still have something going on with the platforms or layouts, but in my experience worrying about "competitive viability" just means sucking all the fun out of it.  RoA1 had stage variations with hazards you could toggle on or off, so hopefully that comes back.

Notably, any kind of mod or workshop integration will not be coming at launch.

I do remember that.  It's a shame but unsurprising since every possible wrong decision about how to design and present a game was made.
>public domain characters, which makes it feel cheap
>obvious inspiration taken from MK/NRS games, with a focus on zoning and GIANT fucking stages

The wings on the character in your pic 2 are a perfect example of that.  They have a high fidelity but you can tell they're just a bunch of objects stapled to a plane emerging from the character's back.

I think that the idea (on paper) was good, a fighting game with horror characters, but:
>Game was highly repetitive
>counter! counter! counter! counter! every 2 seconds (remember that?)
>You had shit like "Adam" instead of "Frankenstein's monster"
>Only a single ultra for every character that got old the second time you saw them
>Animations were stiff and graphics were meh (stages looked decent though)
>Story mode was garbage
Great idea, terrible execution
But not fulfilling the promises was a still a shit move regardless, they didn't even attempt to fix the game with updates, and i also remember how butthurt they got over the tiniest of criticism.
Is there an artbook of that game?
Replies: >>226326
I feel like the people who are trying to ape Smash Bros have missed the memo that Smash Bros uses characters from other games because those characters are mostly widely recognizable and people want to see those characters in a big crossover. There are three separate platform fighters from three separate developers (including the NASB guys) that are using /literallywho/s from 99 cent indiepshit and it makes me wonder why they're not just making their own characters for the games at that point.

Replies: >>226220
Oh that's simple on both accounts.
Bronies were hated for the right reasons and the wrong reasons. The latter being Tumblrinas screeching about how they colonized the show from little girls. Don't ask how, I have no clue. Point is, they didn't take that shit lying down and stood against them. GamerGay before GamerGay, as I said.
Homestuck is a webcomic about sexualized children. Thus, the right name for it is Pedostuck. That's more or less the extent of it.
There were broadly two types of people who were into MLP in the first three years of its fandom, that being manchildren on /co/ and /b/ who were pleasantly surprise the show wasn't total garbage and the type of autogynophile social parasite we now recognize as trannies.  At the time it was still considered bad to walk around with your dick hanging out of women's clothing so trannies congregated online.  I don't think anyone expected the MLP fandom to become a worthwhile avenue for social validation (by internet standards, remember) but around about 2013-2014 it had proven to have enough staying power that a few trannies tried to "reclaim" it.  PurpleTinker was the most famous, a Tumblr tranny who was vile enough that everyone hated him including the leftists/liberals of the day.  Given that MLP's fandom had collectively spawned from an image board, the dudes who enjoyed the show didn't appreciate anyone leaning over their shoulder and telling them how to act.  Trannies (and by extension, The System) were uniformly told to fuck off, which is probably what >>226215 meant by it being proto gamergate.

There is always the joke that people never really stop being ponyfags, and that's somewhat true, but generally the population doesn't grow since there isn't anything new being made.  The show ranged from mediocre to terrible for the last five or six years of its run despite some bright moments.  Other media like official comics or books was limited in its appeal; it didn't really land with anyone who wasn't already into the source material, despite some issues having genuinely really good art thanks to Andy Price.  A couple years ago there was a brief movement to make "new" stuff with voice synthesis but it never went anywhere.

Overall, it's over, which is good because it was only really fun for the first few years.  I think most people have moved on to other things; I'm into more general anthro stuff now, and I'm trying to be more productive and creative with my time rather than just posting stuff to image boards and evaporating my life force into the void.

I guess this is the fighting game thread.

All-Star Brawl 2 got its 1.3 patch last week, and it looks like they're already trying to cuck early tournament strats. Azula got her side special slowed down so she isn't able to out-zone zoners as bad and they nerfed Garfield across the board to force people to actually interact with the food mechanic instead of playing like a slow-motion Fox all the time and never having to go out of your way to use food moves. I would normally feel bad about this since devs balancing games around what they think the "correct" way tourneyfags should play is rarely ends well, but the game is obviously unfinished and the info trickled down from the last thread was pretty disgusting. Hopefully we don't get characters getting nerfed because someone is having fun incorrectly.

The best thing is probably to reinvent it and remind people what Garou is all about thematically, and contrast that with KoF being a crossover game.

Of course they are. ASW no longer sees their native country as the target audience. With the success of DB Figherz in the west (selling more than anything else they've ever made), ASW and Daiskue have been whoring out their franchises to the western/global audience (and everything that comes with it).

Character designs in older GG games were unique and meant to look like they belong in a metal album cover. However with Strive, they've been censoring redesigning female characters to be more friendly to the western "fans", e-sports, ESG and the like, losing that unique look the series and characters had. People mention Baiken being unchanged, but one exception does not make the rule (and at any point, could change). Not only that, but they are retconning characters' stories to said westerner's demands (the biggest one being Bridget). The new characters being introduced in strive are really bland design-wise compared to the old characters, and even blander personalities and stories. 

The game has many other issues as well; no more insta-kills (GG being known for being one of the first FGs to have it), more cinematic bullshit in the gameplay (every counter has a one second pause and camera angle change, stage transitions after certain combos against a wall, etc.), even more simpler mechanics that make Xrd seem complex. Characters previously available right off the bat or unlockable are DLC exclusive (Baiken being so twice now), and some characters being modified or completely re-worked for the sake of "balance", but makes the game boring to watch. Makes me dread how they'll re-do other returning characters.

>What was her schtick?
Girl who is looking for a suitor, willing to try and marry whoever she's fighting. She was going to marry someone before being "activated" and killing her original fiancée (hence the bunny wedding outfit from Xrd) due to her being a plot device for Revelator's main antagonist. 
One of the new characters from Strive. Wouldn't be surprised if the next installment has more like him in it (given how the story ends).

Elphelt was one of the "2000s animu bullshit" aesthetic characters introduced in Xrd's first version, along with Sin, Ramlethal, and Bedman.  She was based on puns like fighting with Guns 'n' Roses (bouquets, etc.) and being a literal shotgun bride.  At the time people hated her because she felt like weeaboo/oktau pandering, which she was; she had paragraphs of unique win quotes for each character, proposing marriage and romance fantasies to the men and comparing cup sizes and hairstyles with the women.

She is still basically that kind of perpetually out of breath, happy-go-lucky, manic pixie dream girl character in Strive but her design and mechanics are very different.  Xrd Elphelt has two stances: rifle for zoning, and shotgun for pressure.  The rifle stance couldn't return since Happy Chaos's gun mechanic is already an almost direct copy of Elphelt's rifle, and because the other notable thing about rifle is that it can set up unblockables, which are cancer (and not allowed in Strive).  The shotgun stance couldn't return since it's probably one of the most insanely overtuned things I've ever seen in any fighting game, and what you do with it most of the time is put your opponent in the corner, whip out shotgun, and put them to a very specific execution/defense test in order for them to escape.  This is also anti-Strive design, since Strive has forced wallbreaks after any combo that connects near the corner, and the defensive mechanics are meant to be more straightforward/universal so having specific knowledge checks which loop back into themselves is forbidden.

Elphelt also has the Pine Berry grenade, which is another of the most insanely overtuned things I've ever seen in any fighting game.  It could not come back because it gives her a lot of flexbility (poke > grenade pull for safety, poke > grenade toss for combos/starting pressure) and actually saves her from making mistakes because any hit she takes while carrying the grenade will detonate it, screwing up her opponent's combo.  Also, all of her normals are incredibly good, her combos deals tons of damage and are very stable, and her backdash is one of the best in the game.

Strive Elphelt seems to be a "flail around and do what you want" character, in that her rifle projectiles will home in after a certain time so they can still connect even if you miss.  Her grenade is now a toss + leap forward, so you get an airdash/jump-in mixup if you set it up properly but it can't be used in any other way.  Instead of her shotgun stance, she now has Chain Lollipop, which is a series of 4 attacks that can be cancelled into each other to pretend you have freeform gatlings and pressure.  It's vaguely similar to the kind of pressure she would do with shotgun stance in Xrd but a lot more limited, as usual.

>ASW no longer sees their native country as the target audience.
Because they aren't.  Blame the Japanese for not buying console games because they spend every waking minute on gacha mobile games and pachinko parlors, not Japanese developers for reading the wind.

>no more insta-kills (GG being known for being one of the first FGs to have it), 
IKs were usually impractical/disrespectful in the older games, and only semi-practical in Xrd, which is the best they've ever been.  Strive characters already take 60% off of c.S starters so instant kills would only be for style.  But ArcSys clearly wants the supers and other animations to play repeatedly since that's where they put most of the animation budget.
>more cinematic bullshit in the gameplay (every counter has a one second pause and camera angle change, stage transitions after certain combos against a wall, etc.)
It should be noted that small counter hits from low attack level moves don't incur much slowdown, but I believe there is some weirdness with the buffer that means they can still screw up your inputs.
>even more simpler mechanics that make Xrd seem complex
I find it funny that a series whose primary mechanics were meant to make things easy (gatlings, ease of air movement) has gained this reputation for being super duper srs bsns.  Xrd is a very easy game, but also a very complex and difficult game.
What I find funny is that xrd is now the good one I want to play. I wouldn't want to play SF4 or tag2, but strive managed to make xrd look great.

TK Ensenga?  Yeah, that was very cheap.  But he still has a fast overhead with lvl 2/3 air downwards Mist Finer.

A lot of Xrd characters were designed to pay respect to their mechanics in GGXX.  GGXX Johnny has like three air moves that are just him reaching down with his hand or his sword, and the only real reason he even has them is so he can juggle people up and down in combos, which is torturous when every character has a different weight and different hurtboxes and you're trying to connect with a small projectile like coin.  Xrd made his combos a lot more consistent and a lot more focused on using Mist Finer stance and MF cancels, since those were the cool things that really distinguished him from other characters.

People like to say that the older games had higher skill ceilings, but I think that only matters if you can actually reach it or get close to it.  The things that have made me love Xrd and GG in general had nothing to do with the skill ceiling, but more to do with it being a very open-ended game that clearly just wanted cool and fun stuff to happen.

>Blame the Japanese for not buying console games because they spend every waking minute on gacha mobile games and pachinko parlors, not Japanese developers for reading the wind.
That's not the problem and you damn well know it, jackass. The issue is the fact that these companies are wasting all their time and resources for the purposes of appealing to Western sensibilities because they're being told (In same cases, unironically believe) that it's the only way to survive and progress forward. Why else do you think that Yoshi P announced that "JRPG" is now a "racist term".

This was a trend that started all the way back during the seventh gen, when M$ paid journshits to trash Japanese games for being "too Japanese", as well as paying through the nose for Japanese games to to exclusive to the 360 (A system that never sold in Japan, so what do you think is going to happen to their sales?). A few years later, there was a power struggle taking place within Sony between the Japanese division of the company (Who was in charge of the Vita) and the Western division (Who was in charge of the Bloodborne machine). Needless to say, thanks to the sabotage caused by the Western branch, the Bloodborne machine was a massive success, ALL of Sony's management moved to California, and anyone not loyal the new regime was canned (Especially the Japanese devs). All the while this was occuring, you had industry "leaders" like Con Man and Kojimbo singing the praises about how Japanese games need to "adapt" to Western sensibilities.

And they were winning the fight to trash and destroy the Japanese game industry and turn it into a clone of the Western industry. At least until around 2017. When, in the span on a year, you had MASSIVE hits like Nioh, Xenoblade 2, Nier: Automata, Persona 5, and Breath of the Wild. Games that were distincly Japanese and flew in the face of everything the Western industry had been spending the past decade attempting to destroy. In response to this, Sony made it their moral "olbigation" to begin banning the sales of games on their system that "violated" sensibilities. That has resulted in Nintendo being the bastion of "free gaming" (For now), but a lot of these companies are never going to make game for this system unless it's designed for kids. Need look no further than Daisuke Sato and Masayoshi Yokoyama (Both producers of the Yakuza games) on one end outright stating that the Switch has the "wrong audience" for "their games", and then turning around and singing the praises of Xbox Game Pass and the Western industry.

Japanese games are dying for one reason and one reason only: they don't give a shit about the Japanese customer. If they did, then you wouldn't see Guilty Gear and Dead or Alive censoring the sex appeal in their games.

>b-b-b-b-b-b-but con man and the xbox 360!
The internal idiocy of Japanese companies and the slow creep of globohomo are not mutually exclusive.  The PS4 won its console generation harder than any console in human history and Guilty Gear Strive still couldn't sell more than 15,000 console units in Japan in its launch week (I'm being very generous; I think the actual number was something like 11,400).  Its total sales were 300,00 during that week and another 200,000 during the next month.  Where do you think the rest came from?  Why would any sane developer chase the Japanese console market?

Part of me wonders if they chose Nago to be the straight man here because his personality is so flat, or because he's the black crunchyroll weeaboo self-insert character, and black crunchyroll weeaboo self-inserters like Elphelt.

It's an attempt to "speech check" people by framing the narrative that people are only opposed to "woke shit" because they're "racists/sexists/homophobic/transphobic/xenophobic/etc.". In fact, there's already a few outlets priming the pump to spend the next several years declaring how there's "economic terrorists" causing woke shit to fail, which is having "grander effects" on the economy (For example, the reason why inflation is occuring) and that the government should begin dictating what products people buy and which businesses they support all in the name of combatting "racism/sexism/homophobia/etc.".

Some additional bugs and context. Apparently UNI2 was made in the Melty Blood Type Lumina engine - which shouldn't actually pose a problem, but clearly something happened behind the scenes that made this game have worse PC problems than than MTBL.

On a semi-related note, apparently Eternal Fighter Zero had replay takeover in its caster version as early as 2014, and GGXXAC+R implemented it as a surprise addition. Only took multibillion dollar companies like Bamco a fucking decade to care enough to put it in Tekken (and it's not in SF6, sadly).

Tekken 8 is fine.
I'd normally complain about Heihachi being replaced by a woman, but Reina is a qt tomboy and also it makes sense for Heihachi to be gone since he fucking died and also his voice actor fucking died too. And that was his second voice actor too since his first actually committed suicide.
Reina is literally the only interesting character Tekken has created in more than 20 years. I'm so happy someone finally managed to convince Harada to move beyond:
>dude who trains hard
>shirtless dude who trains hard
>dude who doesn't train hard
>babyface 20something girl made of porcelain
>very large dude who trains very hard
Just use AI to make the voices.
Too much offense but there are more good changes that bad ones, and reina is surprisingly similar to heihachi so it's fine.

I think it's just an effect of seeing them in full 3D with voice acting. The original sprites were incredibly low resolution but even the base designs for the women didn't look very feminine; I think RoA has some of the least sexy designs for anthro women I've ever seen in a video game which is a shame. I imagine there have been long and strict conversations among the members of the RoA2 art team about how much hip bone is allowed to be emphasized on the women, lest they become unable to sell esports skins and monetize the only people who will ever play it.

Jokes aside, it does say a lot that there's barely any furry smut of the characters. They really don't have much of an impact depsite all the care and effort that went into them. The only women who have clothing that might imply breasts actually exist are Pomme and Olympia, both of whom are from the final wave of characters and are Workshop OCs.

Fun little quiz for anyone who hasn't played RoA before: Are these characters female or male?

Some news about Tekken 8 from a developer livestream and some community opinions:
- Rage quitters suffer zero consequences for quitting and their disconnect percentage shown to prospective opponents isn't accurate, so you can't even decline to fighting someone who rage quits.
- Premium currency shop patched into the game well after launch. The standard psychological tricks of not spending "real money" or buying currency in uneven amounts. One skin for one character is $4 (compared to an entire character + several costumes for $6 in Tekken 7). There is no way to accrue premium currency in the regular game.
- The premium currency shop will include legacy costumes absent in the default customization options.
- Modders making legacy costumes have been copyright struck on YouTube by Bamco.

I can't really imagine a fighting game where frame data knowledge wouldn't give you some kind of advantage. Samurai showdown, at least previous entries, keeps combos short and focus on reads with deadly counterhits.

All of them if you're playing with scrubs. My personal favorite is Soul Calibur 2. Recent games like KOF15 also have autocombo mechanics specifically for button mashing niggers so they can actually get a combo out, and in KOF specifically being able to get hyper hops in and jump attack at the right time is at least as important as combo execution. SamSho pretty much doesn't have combos but one normal can rape you for 50% health.
>not dead
uuuuuuuuuuh if you're willing to deal with fightcuck you can play Windjammers and Neo Turf Masters as well as traditional fightans. Both of these games get played like fightans due to being competitive and on the Neo Geo, but Windjammers is basically Pong with curved shots and Turf Masters is a pretty standard golf game other than being made by the studio that did Metal Slug.

Not even the japs call them that, you mongoloid.
>memorizing button inputs and frame data
This really is going to haunt the genre for all of eternity, isn't it? A hundred years from now you'll have neural sockets in your wrists and skull to take your inputs from thought to action and people will still be bitching about frame data and motion inputs.

For popularity, there's Street Fighter 6 and Tekken 8, both of which have simple input modes (and cost an arm and a leg, and gouge you for cosmetics in the cash shop). Mortal Kombat 11 and Mortal Kombat 1 both have pretty big player bases since they're MK games, but they require a lot more memorization than other types of games and generally feel like shit to play (and gouge you the same as the others). Guilty Gear Strive is the current popular anime game, but it's thoroughly pozzed with tranny characters and the population is still pretty small - around 2 or 3 thousand compared to the larger games.

Everything else dips into the sub-thousand player base range. A few new games like Melty Blood Type Lumina had decent player bases but I'm not sure if you'd be able to find many newcomers.

GBVSR is another one, yeah. It'll probably be super popular for a long time given the momentum of its source material and the free demo.

Add to that the incomprehensible rambling, the AI image and the fake outrage for a game no one cares about. He mustn't be able to understand you don't need to be a fan of a videogame to talk about it, and OP was clearly talking about the game as a curiosity, not as an undercover marketing ploy to subvert this website.
On a side note I don't understand why would anyone conflate bronies with furries. One of the two fanbases was so farfetched and nonsensical (a toyline about colored horses girls aged older than 9 grow out of) you might as well keep them around like they're the special ED kid in class. Besides, from what I can remember bronies had some genuine powerful autism that made them proficient in game modding and overall /tech/ presence. In retrospect they weren't much of an outblown cancer but a benign tumor. I'm still glad they fizzled out when the series died regardless.

Updates on the TFH situation: Nidra and Baihe released last month, and both have ways to break the game although Nidra is mostly balanced. Baihe is one of the most OP characters in any fighting game ever. Most of the info I'm posting has video examples in this video, which is surprisingly concise and well made: https://iv.nboeck.de/watch?v=nGCa7WRhyUs

General problems:
- If you buy one of the two characters, you can't do the combo trials for her since each of them uses the other DLC character as the training dummy and the game won't load the training mode combos.
- Both characters have broken combo trials that either literally aren't possible or have missing move names.
- There were no patch notes. Of any kind.
- According to one developer, the reason Nidra and Baihe both have game-breaking bugs associated with them is because they were forcibly pushed out in the middle of a QA pass.
- The Mane6 website and forums briefly went offline, though they came back a day later.
- The publisher Maximum Entertainment (formerly Modus) has reduced the headcount at Mane6 from 15 to 3, and then to 1. This is especially strange since MaxEnt recently announced they had secured the rights to a fighting game based on Avatar The Last Airbender, and you'd think they would want to keep the team behind TFH around to work on that.
- All the moderators and admins in the game's official Discord server were unexpectedly stripped of their privileges at the same time, which meant only one guy could moderate anything. This one guy was a MaxEnt stooge who had made exactly one post in the entire server before this point.
- Various documents related to the game and Mane6 were taken offline or removed, such as the press media kit and the spreadsheet tracking physical backer rewards from the crowdfunding campaign (although LOL if you thought that was ever going to be fulfilled).

- She has various stances where she falls asleep, rolls around, etc. One move in her "lying on the ground stance" is an upward swat that launches and extends combos. She isn't supposed to be able to do this move meterlessly, but she can ignore the meter requirement if she cancels into it.
- Nidra's guard cancel attack isn't fully invincible, which is an obvious bug.
- Connecting with a level 1 super, then doing a level 1 cancelled into a level 2 will freeze your opponent in place for the rest of the round.
- Her level 3 obviously wasn't polished, since her opponent just stands still in a stock pose while Nidra winds up for the big attack.

- High-mobility zoner with various fireballs and a reflector. The reflector is as fast as universal jabs, and if it absorbs a projectile Baihe fires a fast, tracking fireball of her own.
- - She can reflect her own projectiles, including her projectile normals.
- Baihe can combo from her throw in the corner, but this is obviously unintentional because her throw doesn't apply any damage scaling.
- Both of her supers are fullscreen and practically unpunishable. Doing her level 1 super against an invulnerable opponent crashes the game, including on console.
- - If her opponent is Paprika, the wacky random alpaca, Paprika sometimes gets stuck for no reason during her intro animation and Paprika can't act - though she does take damage.
- - Her level 3 super has a bug where the player 2 Baihe doesn't connect with the second to last hit, meaning the super does about half the damage it's supposed to.
- She is one of two characters in the game to have a normal that is plus on block. The other is Texas, the big body grappler who doesn't have a dash.
- She has a "reload" stance that is armored on frame 1. If she absorbs a hit she instantly fills up her Magic meter and can cancel the stance into anything. Any counterattack she does at this point is fully invincible for its entire duration.
- - Even if the stance doesn't absorb something, can cancel the armor stance into any movement option or special move. All of her normals and special moves can also cancel INTO the stance.
- - Baihe is plus on block at all times and is only ever minus or unsafe if she chooses to be.
- - She can also do an airdash jumping normal at any point and force an overhead/low mixup.
- Baihe's air special moves have no limit to the number of times you can do them in the air. Her j.214A gains height so she can escape off the top of the screen if she wants.
- If she does a TK special move (basically ending the motion on a diagonal up direction), it is fully invincible for its entire duration. This means she can choose to be invincible for the entire round by chaining special moves together, and they don't even have to touch her opponent.
- - This also applies to any special move she does with reversal timing, from blockstun or from knockdown.
- A bunch of Baihe's normals and special moves ignore the universal combo gravity system, including various projectiles, combo extenders, and launchers. She has easy, practical infinites from any position on the screen against any character, and those infinites don't require any meaningful adjustments.

>obligatory danger-haired girl who shares no aesthetics with the rest of the cast
Why does every SNK game have someone like this these days? SamSho 2019 had Darli, KoFXV had the paint can girl (and the mud woman, whose design was less offensive), and now this Preecha girl who doesn't have an ounce of muscle anywhere on her body but looks like some kind of MMA fighter.

It's kind of surreal hearing an English Terry say "Burn Knuckle!" instead of "bahn nakku!" but most of them seem to be fine, which is good. Pity that Tizoc suffers the same fate as all burly men in English dubs and ends up sounding like some guy who's kind of fat.

I initially thought the graphical style was KoFXV with some new bells and whistles, but there are little touches like the 2D "speed line" animation before a super that make it stand out a bit more. The Rev Guard or whatever it's called looks incredibly bad, though; I can see the sphere being overlapped onto the character's body with zero thought as to how to make the animation cool. I might be disappointed by the character style being very similar to KoFXV but if they can actually make it work and have the characters pop out from the background then I can live with it.

I also hope that SNK remembers how to make a game without incredibly autistic combos like KoF, since Garou generally had quite short combos even if they did kill you. The abundance of cancels and extension mechanics are hopefully going to make it into a "wide, but short" system rather than the typical KoF meter dump.

More than any kind of good looks or mechanics, though, this game absolutely needs to have features that are competing with the likes of Tekken 8 and Street Fighter 6.

>you can learn everything just by playing the game
I generally do that, but training mode is helpful to understand edge cases. Case in point: I was playing Guile vs Juri in SF6 yesterday, and I kept trying to punish her Fujahin store move, but it felt inconsistent. In training mode, I was able to see that there are different versions of it, with advantage of -4, -6, and -8, which explained why my attempts to punish with 6f and 7f moves felt inconsistent.

A hitbox viewer helps to explain why Guile's neutral MK is such a good anti-air, because without looking at the hitbox I would not have presumed that there is a vertical disjointed block above Guile's heel. After learning this, I was able to make adjustments to my anti-airs and use neutral MK in situations where I previously wouldn't have thought it would work.

>b-but that just means you didn't playe the gaem!!!1
I did, and my intuition got me 85% of the way there, and training mode helped with the rest. There is no conflict between the mnemonic power phrase that you keep screaming and a functional, robust piece of software. It's truly astonishing how insane you must be in order to believe otherwise. Many of the things I'm asking for, at least in training mode features, were present in the PS2 port of Melty Blood. Killer Instinct 2013 has full frame data and hitbox viewers in its training mode. These things aren't new and there is literally no reason to oppose them. Their presence is a huge part of what makes a fighting game good in the information age. It does not detract from "maeking a goode gaeme" to put a few toggle switches in the training mode.

You can choose to focus on some parts of the game if you want to, but what you're saying is that you want the game to have fewer features, and to be ignored in favor of games that have better features. Then Garou CotW's population will dwindle and you can go another decade without SNK being a relevant name in any casual fighting game conversation north of the equator and outside of China.

Do any of you fags know if there's a KOFXV mod to port the "progress bar" frame data thing from SF6's training mode? I thought I read about someone trying to do that in a previous fighting game thread and seeing exactly when you drop your combo is the best idea I've heard of for a training mode in years.

By talking about videogames for once. 08808a is right, it's pointless to complain about normalfags for the umpteenth time on such a small site where everyone browsing already shares the same opinion.
Stop arguing and engage in something you find enjoyment in, that's how communities and counter-movements grow.

Fighting games are for soyboy faggots who can’t fight in real life. They’re for losers like you who didn’t have the balls or the strength to fight back at Chad when he bullied you in school. Maybe you should learn how to lift weights and defend yourself irl instead of learning little button combos like a child in order to live out your gay ass little revenge fantasy.

Instead of doing something of use with your worthless life like hosting a videogame or setting up a cytube stream to have some fun you're here posting faggot flags at any given opportunity and reminding everyone on this tiny site for the reminder of their lives that gay niggers exist.
You're cut from the same cloth as any Twitter user gossiping and spreading the gospel of niggerfaggotry, given that's what you do with your spare time every day of the week. Do you think you have the gall to call anyone but yourself a HIV-infested sack of shit smeared in cum and piss?

What this Fatal Fury should have done, was pulling a Street Fighter 4, meaning focus on the Fatal Fury to Real Bout 2 characters, with their original design, and only add the less shitty ones from Garou, meaning B.Jenet and Tizoc.
All the other ones can fuck off.
The only Fighting game that managed to pull the whole "new generation" of fighters successfully to replace the older ones was Tekken, the other ones that tried it always resulted in a worse roster, especially when Street Fighter did it with 3.

Did it? From what I can tell Kazuya is still more popular than his son, Xiaoyu and Hwoarang are not all that popular and Eddie might as well not exist.
Funny enough the only character from T3 that truly became a mainstay to the series while replacing his T2 counterpart was the secret character, Bryan.

Hwoarang is definitely better than Baek.
Bryan was meant to replace Bruce and it is way better.
Jin was cooler than Kazuya until Kazuya came back in 4 looking more badass than he ever did before.
Julia is essentially Michelle with a different name, so i guess it doesn't change anything.
Same for Forest Law.
Anyway still way better than the garbage characters Street Fighter 3 tried to replace the OG characters with, same thing when Garou replaced the old Fatal Fury characters.
Street Fighter 3 had definitely the worst roster change, i would only save Ibuki, maybe Urien, and that's it.
Garou's were all lame except for Gato, B.Jenet and Tizoc, all the other ones were trash.
Give me back Mai, Cheng, Andy, Big Bear, Kim, Blue Mary, Krauser, Sokaku, Rick, Xiangfei and substantially all the Real Bout 2 characters over Karate nigger, edgy emo ginger faggot, Kim clone 1 and 2, ninja kid, and generic anime girl.
I just don't see the reason to replace an entire roster of characters when said characters are beloved, for an inferior version of them.

Necro, Twelve, Q, Hugo, Makoto, and Gill are great designs that far surpass most characters in SF2 or SF Alpha.
>Garou's were all lame except for Gato, B.Jenet and Tizoc
Gato is super lame, but I agree about Garou's designs being underwhelming even if I'm not comparing them to Fatal Fury/KoF.

That's what many people believed, but concept art, early character illustrations, and manuals use the Japanese term "newhalf," meaning male-to-female transvestite/transsexual. Oddly, Roxy is described as not being a crossdresser in the character profiles for Capcom Classics Collection on PS2.

The first 5-7 minutes of this video have a concise explanation.

And the Japanese are also a bunch of pervs for varied reasons. I've noticed a fair number of what I recall being manly, red-blood anime and manga series having a one-off character who was transgender, transsexual, or some odd blend of masculine and feminine due to phlebotinum in the setting.

Many such cases.

What is it about Waffle Houses that makes them magnets for fights? When I used to drive around the south for work I'm pretty sure every time I went to one there was some kind of altercation no matter what time of day and no matter where it was located. Even McDonalds wasn't as bad and that's a pretty reliable place to go to see chimp battles.

>as someone who worked at and witnessed some shit at waffle house
I know someone that use to work at a waffle house and has seen a lot of fights there. I asked about the racial demographics of said fights and they told me it was 100% niggers chimping out every time.
From what I read in a trannyera thread about this Tekken 8 shitpost I found in an internet search it's the combination of Waffle Houses being located in Inner Niggerstan and while also being the only place open on a weeknight after the bars close.
[Hide] (137.6KB, 400x400) Reverse
>open 24/7/365
>second chance employment
>no one isnt welcome
>locations include but are not limited to poorer areas
>naturally loud interior
>fair prices
One or more of these factors at any given time make the Waffle House an arena conducive for fights and brawls. 
First you have the location, a single room that is typically long and narrow containing all customers and staff, cooks included. The system used by the staff for communicating orders to one another is exclusively verbal due to the fact that when Waffle House was first opened in Avondale Estates the niggers there couldn't be expected to be literate. This verbal communication isn't itself an issue, but it can add to the high volume prone in the Waffle House environment. I'm sure you've been exposed to situations in which volume from multiple groups continues to rise so that the separate groups can hear themselves. This itself isn't an issue, but let's just say volume doesn't tend to relaxation. Finally concerning the location interior is the temperature, being typically kept cold but also getting hot at the grill. Once again, not necessarily relaxing. 
Second you should consider the staff, of whom there are people with all sorts of histories, from meek first job teenage girls to hardened felons. Your server might be a stoned spook eager to get a good tip while your cook has served multiple times for a serious crimes. The manager might be struggling to feed multiple children while also giving temporary housing to a new hire while he earns enough money to rent an apartment. What I'm getting at is all sorts of people work at the Waffle House and so the types of people working there vary significantly from their ways of dealing with problems to the problems they actually have to deal with. Remember, this staff likely has to have this job. This is effectively their home away from home. As corny as that sounds it really is like a home that they are in, they don't have an option to just move home when a storm knocks the walls down.
Thirdly the most volatile part of the equation - customers. Morning is mostly the elderly and men with real jobs. Afternoon is dead, second shift does a lot of prep work and other time consuming tasks. Second shift might also cook a meal for a homeless in exchange for sweeping the parking lot once a day or something like that. Nights are where the antics really get going. Bums, addicts, drunks, teens, families, late shift workers, you name it. At some point during the night at many locations you will find some or even all of these groups. These people, they don't live at the Waffle House. They don't need the Waffle House in the same way others do. Sure, they need to eat, but clearly they can afford to lose a couple bucks having someone else cook for them. Sometimes they afford more than that, too. Really it is the volatility of the customers that bring the situation to a head more times than not. Being that Waffle House is one of the few, if not the only place open in the middle of the night there really isn't an option to "be smart" about where to eat after the bar closes and you know the guy who was trying to fight your friend is likely also going to the only place you can get food at 3 in the morning. Maybe there's an uppity person who is dissatisfied and decides to take their frustration out on a member of the staff who has had to use violence in their own life in scenarios much more serious than the uppity one is bringing issue with. Fuck man there's no telling there could be two groups there that just don't like one another, or someone misheard another person and now wants to be physical about it, someone could have been dealing with problems concerning the parent of their child that they had out of wedlock. But hey then the staff are there yelling out orders and the grill is hot as fuck and those tensions are naturally high trying to keep everyone happy when you're understaffed in a high turnover rate short order restaurant but then the cook thinks he heard someone talk badly to a server so he's gonna go deal with that in person right now and he's working at Waffle House because no one else wanted to hire a two time felon and now he's about to deal with a customer service issue right now and the cook is already convinced the customer is the issue.

Update: Bamco have patch the game to version 1.03 and removed an entire wall combo mechanic in order to nerf an exploit that Devil Jin could perform which reset combo scaling. This has broken most hazards like wall breaks and floor breaks for most characters' combos, and made many stages barely functional or broken.

Eddy Gordo, the first DLC character, is out 3 days early if you buy him via the battle pass. If you don't have him and attempt to view a replay you played against him, you are prevented from viewing that replay because you don't own the character.
