Skullgirls Encore headed to PlayStation 4 and Vita

Will it still be the same boring, safe Reset combos lol hype free gameplay without the flash and hype of Mahvel and no community to support it?

Re-Release it all they want but the core gameplay is still based on incredibly safe resets and Touch Of Death combos to abuse the "Anti-Infinite" system while Marvel 2's beauty was that it was totally unbalanced but it was always high stakes poker with a big execution level where a single dropped combo could lead to big hype comebacks. There's no hype to Skullgirls.

Lab Zero should have went for a sequel and figured out what was wrong with the game in the first place that tournament attendance was dwindling instead of making DLC and having weekly "༼ つ ◕_◕ ༽つ GIBE MONEY PLS ༼ つ ◕_◕ ༽つ" streams

Oh and I guess we're going to have added bitching from the loud community because it's not at evo while Smash, Injustice and Killer Instinct are (Pro-Tip: Those communities show up. Skullgirls doesn't)

I bought a year Xbox Gold from G2A for 20 quid and it was perfectly legit which makes it weird. Especially as they have PayPal protection on so you can get a refund if it doesn't work.

Seems as legit as ShopTo and other re-sellers. Very strange.

Batman: Arkham Knight's PS4-exclusive Scarecrow Nightmare Pack detailed

It was way worse on 5th gen and when the Xbox and Gamecube launched. Sony was flinging money at publishers to keep games as at least timed exclusives like GTA 3 and Burnout 2. It's not going to end any time soon.

Oh boy. Where do we start. This is going to sound like a history lesson.

Squares output on Playstation platforms was a signed exclusive deal that included the FF Movie in 1998 that Sony signed to stop them from going to the Dreamcast and the new Nintendo console (Which was going to use discs which killed Square's main problem with the N64's cartridges) which carried over to the PS2. Square weren't happy with it later on and created a holding company to create a loophole and put Final Fantasy Tactics Advance and Crystal Chronicles on Nintendo platforms and then used the new gen to bring Final Fantasy to 360 before going fully multiplatform.

The Capcom 5 were five titles by Capcom. RE4, Viewtiful Joe, PN 03, Killer 7 and Dead Phoenix (Cancelled) slated as Gamecube exclusives they signed with Nintendo with the provision they could be ported if they didn't meet sales targets. They didn't and they were ported later to the PS2 except for PN O3.

N64. Where do I start? They signed developers to be console exclusive like DMA design and got contracts that games like San Francisco Rush and Shadowman (From Midway and Acclaim respectively) would come out on N64 first and be timed exclusive for over a year in exchange for Nintendo marketing (And Nintendo was marketing Shadowman like one of their own at the time). Or they would do "Lead Platform" deals on games like Rayman 2 (This sounds so familiar right now) despite that game coming out on the PS1 and Dreamcast. Actually Nintendo loved to pull a lot of that "timed". Most of Acclaim's output showed up on the DC and PS1 later in 2000 when the period was over (And Nintendo pulled off a huge coup back in those days convincing Acclaim to make their South Park FPS an N64 console exclusive. They could throw money when they wanted to.)

Additionally, Arguably the first 3rd party exclusive was when Atari signed Pac-Man from Namco as a home console exclusive for a lot of money. Of course, the game was a badly ported shitpile. But it was the first example (I feel one of the mods or staff will shoot me for this if I got it wrong)

Seriously, it's been in gaming since the start and never going away. Timed exclusive Content and DLC is just an evolution of it. A bullshit evolution, but this is going on since the 80's.

Uh. That was Sony's entire strategy in the 6th gen where they signed exclusivity contracts to a lot of games to keep them off Gamecube and Xbox. They even signed Square to a platform exclusive contract on all their games (That Square found a loophole for when they wanted to release on Nintendo consoles with the Crystal Chronicles and Tactics spin offs). Or Nintendo with the "Capcom Five" (Some which came out on PS2 later due to some contract wrangling by Capcom).

Or "What was the entirety of 5th gen?" where Nintendo signed developers as console exclusives like DMA Design and even signed publishers like Acclaim and Midway to exclusivity where they would output a certain amount of titles as N64 only. Nintendo even got a massive timed exclusive with the South Park game at the time. It was gash, but it sold a lot and pushed N64's.

Seriously. This has been going on as common practice since the 90's from all companies.

Also it's launch date parity, not any other parity. You are making shit up at this point.

Assassin's Creed Unity is a backward step for progressive games

@Malek86

I'm all for diversity but not at the cost of narrative. And railing on Assassins Creed, which exemplifies diversity and has showed you can make games with diverse lead characters that people will buy and enjoy, is a bit idiotic.

Ubi's statement backfired but then lately there's a lot of cringy social justice warriors going ape without any sort of logical thinking so no one is winning this argument. But then logic isn't the gamers strong point.
6 2

TheNinjaWarriorAGAIN

I find it amazing that people are seriously railing on Assassins Creed of all fucking games for lacking diversity. Here's the main protagonists and their origins

Altair - Palestinian
Ezio - Italian
Conor - Native American
Aveline - African-French
Edward Kenway - Welsh (But we won't hold that against him)
Adéwalé - Afro-Caribbean

Never mind Altiar was Islamic fighting against Crusaders (Who were Templars, duh) during an Era when Ubi would have been in hot shit for doing that background. And the online play has had diverse sets of characters as well. Giving AC Unity shit because it features four males for the narrative because it's not diverse is goddamn idiotic considering the games past is all about diversity and how the Templar/Assassin war goes beyond race and gender.

Ubi fucked up by saying it's extra work then getting called on it. But they should have the right to say "We considered it but it didn't fit the narrative". But complaining about inequality in Assassins Creed is pissing in the wind (Plus we're probably going to get a Liberation/Freedom Cry style Spin off with a female protagonist anyway).

They still ran with TVTVTV and didn't show much first party development either. Most of what they showed was multiplats as well. Very few first party.

TVTVTV is still TVTVTV. It has no place at E3. Just because it's a company you like and has a louder fanbase doesn't absolve them from criticism.

Never mind the fact the only MS 1st party dev they had there was Lionhead. While there's plenty other devs working in the background if you want to get into "B-B-But they weren't all there" pissing contest.
