Dragon Ball FighterZ pro player kills entire team in one combo

SonicFox is a god damned fighting game prodigy. And he does it all wearing that goofy blue fox ear hat. I love watching him play, and he often enters the NLBC tournaments as he's New York based.

@wyp100 Can't find the original, but here's a 1 minute long blockstring video.

https://twitter.com/AisuKyubuGG/status/959130248829792256

The fact that you can't pushblock (reflect doesn't have invulnerability and needs start up frames) means you have to sit there and eat it until the other player messed up or runs out of resources. I know ASW games are a lot like that, but it's so amazing oppressive to see.

Was watching the NLBC weekly and so many attempts at pulling this off, but players aren't used to it yet. Conversely I've had it done to me once online, and it's hella scary. Props to those who have figured it out!

I love how deep DBFZ is. It is SO good. Amazing to watch as well, the entire package really comes together.

Still not seeing much high level play mind you. The amount of super dashes I'm crushing with rising heavy is ridiculous. Come on people! Stop throwing out your beta tech!

Marvel vs. Capcom Infinite flops

Rivuzu

I'll be interested in seeing DBFZ's numbers in a few weeks time as to how many it's sold.

Seeing as one of the main complaints with MVCI was terrible art choice and lack of diverse cast, a niche anime genre fighting game with only two female characters sounds on paper far, far worse.

Even if it is the most amazing fighter in five years.

Are loot boxes gambling?

Rivuzu

6 months ago

Damn, this intern has some serious chops. Great article Vic. When are EG making you permanent then?

I do think loot boxes are a form of gambling, and agree this can be devolved down to other randomly assigned purchases such as Pokémon cards and beyond. The problem here comes with the perspective of how they're viewed. Till now, these things have simply been marketed as children's toys and the regulators have not had a need to delve further than that.

It will be a long time coming before there's any real reform in the gambling law on this though. If the UK decided to ban companies doing this, then we'd either refuse to sell products where it's included or there'll be a clear bar on doing so within the program itself. No publisher wants that, and the backlash on the regulators for insisting this would be extreme from gaming communities.

Let's not get carried away. Marvel vs. Capcom Infinite's roster of characters still looks uninspired (no X-Men characters is a bitter blow), the art style looks flat and boring to my eyes and the story mode looks awful. Jedah, though, looks all sorts of cool.
Damnit Wes. I thought you were about to join me on the MvC hype train for a moment.
