Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition |OT2| Street Fighter Has Come Home

I think you could make a lame play Laura work. There's a guy I fight occasionally in casuals who plays a really good defensive Ken.

That Justin Wong video came at a good time for me, I've been trying to improve my neutral game for the past few weeks. I've made it to Platinum, but the gimmicks that worked in Gold/Platinum are tough to pull off against Super Platinum players and are no-sells to the Diamond+ players I've fought on Battle Lounge.

It's been tough slowing myself down and focusing more on the ground neutral game. My Last-100 win rate dropped by 20%, which probably indicates how much I've been winning due only to my opponents having a weak AA game. Still I think I'm improving. I've noticed I'm getting better at reading when my opponents are getting ready to throw out a limb so I'm not just throwing random pokes out hoping for the best.
Justin put Laura at the bottom of his lame tier list:

So over on the Gaming side there is a thread where people are feeding video game character portraits to an Nvidia deep-learning AI program that reconstructs facial features with CGI.

Someone fed the machine Ken's character select portrait. Not even HAL 9000 can fix Ken's face:

Our dojo's rank is at the lowest it's been yet (well out of top 100), but considering the lack of incentive that Capcom's providing everyone with to log in weekly anymore, I suppose it's not much of a surprise.

So many people have seen that mix up that it doesn't work as much for me anymore. The mix up is still good, but I have to stay in front more often.

Ironic that you respond to a post that says "messed up big time" with a gif that includes Dojima getting smacked in the head. Daigo totally deserved it ;)

Meanwhile, SFV is really being annoying with lack of Fight Money now. I've got enough for Guts Man and probably the next good costume after that, but then I'm pretty much out of luck :(

I’d love to play Yakuza, but there’s too much shady, borderline homophobic shit.

I think they’re trying to fix it, but I dunno. There’s that one side quest where you help a lesbian lady be true to herself, but then there’s all that other stereotypical stuff with male NPCs. :/
For whatever its worth, they've removed some content from the recent remasters that was considered transphobic and the localizations really are doing a great job at making the protagonists more accepting people.

There's still an element of machismo at the centre of the series which I doubt will go away considering the series started out aimed at older japanese men and that target hasn't entirely changed. But they have at least grown a little.

I don’t have any problem with machismo, as long as it’s not at the expense of anyone else. I encourage them to keep fighting shirtless (and sans pants) as much as they like. Maybe have Kiryu become a stripper in the next one, and I’ll be his manager.

I might try that Judge Eyes, or whatever. WE’LL SEE I GUESS.

Kiryu's already voiced a yaoi game in Yakuza 2/Kiwami 2. And he was almost a male model in Yakuza 2/Kiwami 2.

And yes, you need to try JUDGE EYES. Else I'll just have to come to the land of Maple Syrup and send you a copy myself.

Almost? That sounds tragic. Until he’s a headlining GoGo boy, promoting his OnlyFans page on Twitter, and splashed acrossed Hunk Channel’s latest releases, then he’s not even doing the bare minimum to become a gay icon.

Also please feel free to send me as much free stuff as possible, as I’m practically homeless. 💁‍♂️

Tbf it’s not botched, it’s just that the Arcade Edition soundtrack only includes character themes up to Falke. For one reason or another (perhaps bc they weren’t finished composing/recording/mixing G and Sagat’s themes), the final two S3 characters don’t have musical representation on the OST and it was probably a lot easier to just upload the existing OST (which has been on iTunes and other digital platforms for a while now) rather than having to mix and code those two extra tracks.

That said, it is a TRAVESTY that we still don’t have a full version of President of the World. Capcom shelled out to get Deltron and didn’t even capitalize on the promotional opportunity by putting the track up for sale. It’s not even on YouTube or w.e!
