Jesus, megadrive VF2? Really? Why not make the effort of converting actual VF2 to PSN/XBLA?

Powerstone getting an "exponentially larger fanwank than Darkstalkers"?

Rrrrright.

I have no idea what this is, but given they have already shown MvC3 what other big Capcom fighting franchises are left other than the mighty DS?

Wait - CAPCOM FIGHTING JAM 2! ;)

N-N-N-N-NOW! FIGHT A NEW RIVAL!

@kinky-mong: The SF controllers have been made using the consultation of top SF players, so they won't be shit. They will be GOOD. The top-end stick, especially, uses high quality Japanese arcade parts. Winnar!

Again, I fail to see your point. "One of those games which becomes too hardcore"?? What does that even mean? Surely this is a problem with EVERY online game? Could you reasonably expect to play a game of Halo and not run into some hardcore players? Or COD4? Or Bomberman? :)

The game rewards practice and diligence, which is as it should be.

"knowing every move inside outness is one of the reasons for me that fighting games can be a bore and a chore online....SF is the best for this as you've been able to be a shithead and just hundred hand slap some uber timing kid to the wall...but the more it allows for subtle timing and deep moves, and terrible jargon like this the worse it becomes for the average punter"

You're right. In fact we should make all FPS games "one-button-press = kill" as well, just for the noobs, making victories totally random and not at all about individual skill.

Hmmm. Some weird comments on this.

I don't understand why anyone is criticising SFIV for having some depth. Being able to pick up the basics quickly and being good at a fighting game are two very seperate entities. If you don't play the game a lot, you cannot be expected to win against people who take the time to study the moves. Is this such an alien concept?

For what it's worth, I thought it was a great hands-on. Matt, can you still kara-cancel overhead into raging demon?

Soulcalibur

Small pedantic note here; the original SC arcade game was on System 12, which was an upgraded PS1. So the DC and the arcade original really had very little in common hardware-wise, not "the same wirey guts" at all.

Anyway, small note aside, great review and a great game! :D

PENNY ARCADE DEFENSE FORCE ARRIVES!

I enjoy PA, I think Gabe's artistic style is fantastic, I find Tycho's writing to be clever and entertaining, and I find that their webcomic frequently hits the nail right on the head on certain issues. They tell you without hesitation when they think a game is more or less deserving of praise, they call attention to indie titles, and they run one of the best videogame conventions in the world.

So I will be getting this.

But you know, if you don't like them then don't buy it. It's not rocket science.

Retrospective: Halo 3

Onny

10 years ago

Good arguments on both sides, although this bit seemed a bit off IMO:

"While Halo 3 defaults to old-fashioned cut-scenes that simply throw up reams of expository dialogue and insultingly demonstrate Master Chief performing epic stunts the player isn't allowed to carry out himself, COD4's gobbets of storytelling are concise and interactive."

His complaint against Halo here can also be levelled against CoD4: regular NPCs do all sorts of shit you can't do, including taking cover and kicking down doors.

But anyway. Nice article, and it will be interesting to read the rest.

To be honest, I don't think it's a killer app, the learning curve is too steep for 95% of console owners.

When played online, precision fighting games are bollocks. You will never be able to totally eliminate latency, and as such it becomes a shitfest.

Oh, and to the feller who reckons DOA4 looks "on the same level" as VF5.. you obnviously haven't seen it running.
