It was super weird how indifferent Guile seemed to be about Charlie being around. Dude almost abandoned his family to avenge this other dude and you'd think that would warrant more of a reaction than returning his dog tags.
The Guile/Nash story (anti) climax was a disgrace.

I think most story modes are pure schlock, but at least some try to honor the lore they establish. That's the bare minimum to expect, but SFV's couldn't even do that. Dude's whole character design since the beginning revolved around his search for Nash and they treated it like an afterthought. If they can't even at least make an effort to hit one of their series' key plot points, they shouldn't even bother.

A reminder, Nash was able to beat Bison who's at his strongest in Alpha 2 in a 1v1.

Only to sacrifice himself and not hurt Bison in SFV.

God, ANOTHER week with the 10 Battle Lounge win challenge? Fuck off Capcom. We all know that challenge is basically a space filler since the FM you earn from it is the same as the FM from 10 casual/ranked wins anyways. Not a coincidence we keep seeing this challenge since the weekly FM nerf.

I make a point of skipping that one every time it shows up.

Not sure about stats, but it definitely takes longer for me to find matches lately (and results in running into the same people more than what used to be the case).

NorCal
Yeah, it's being advertised the past few weeks. That said, it's going on at Esports Arena in Oakland, not SoCal.

I'm assuming Levelup will be streaming for those outside of California.

Has there been any update on S4?
In addition to the poster, the last stuff we got is CPT DLC bundle, A lot of costumes, a Final Fight stage and the EX8 color.

The arcade version will be released this Thursday, and Final Round (first CPT event of this year) is the day after it, this next weekend. We expect to see some announcement there. My personal guess is that they'll announce there the next S4 character and if lucky maybe some additional stuff that may have included due to the arcade release.

if capcom is dragging their feet all because of the arcade version, then fuck arcades now and forever
I've said "fuck arcades" for a while. From this to Tekken to BBTAG to other games whose last revision is stuck there... Arcades are a glorious relic of last century that should be in a museum, not in anyone's business plan in 2019.

And that's the attitude why it's still strife in Japan while we're stuck with "Raw Thrill" Arcades

Who said they are dragging their feet? They have been releasing stuff and looking at the datamining findings they still have a good amount of content coming. In addition to this, Capcom is constantly doubing down their eSports efforts to support the game.

During the recent months their speed releasing new characters decreased a bit, very likely because they had to dedicate part of these resources to release the arcade version, but that's all. The arcade version has the v4.021, received the same updates than the console and PC version and will be connected to internet to allow Japanese arcade players to fight people from the other arcades across Japan and you'll be able to use there your costumes and colors from the home version. So it will also get the same upcoming updates as the home version. The game won't be stuck in that version and it won't stuck the home version.

Well, I'm developing a game that will be also be released in arcade version, and I'm helping to build a videogame museum with over 300 arcades + retro computers and consoles. Modern arcades have a pc inside that can be connected to internet to update the games. Thanks to modern game engines and pc-like hardware architecture of consoles, both PC, console and arcade versions of the game are basically the same. If a company decides to stop updating a game it isn't because of the arcade version. It's because they think it's more profitable for them to move their resources to the next game than to continue updating a game that only a few people would play.

I don't think Type Arcade is as big a deal as some people are making it out to be. If it was launching with new characters or modes we'd know about them by now. At best I'm expecting a character reveal at Final Round and a release a few weeks later, but I don't think it'll be tied to Type Arcade.

There's gonna be a problem if all they have to show is a single new character. We need something more right now.
  • Reveal of all S4 characters.
  • Something that can qualify as an "S4.5" from an overall game systems and balance perspective.
  • Variety of new costumes/stages.
Something, because it's getting kinda boring if you don't just care about watching pros and/or the CPT.

They just announced another cost... UNIQLO x SFII & SFV t-shirts collection, and it features a really cool promotional art:
https://game.capcom.com/cfn/sfv/news/132716?lang=en

This promotional art is also shown in-game, as the new loading screen ads (12 FM). There are also UNIQLO logos stage ads (4FM) but no costume ads.




P.S.: E.Honda appears several times there, I wonder if it's another hint.

Capcom Unity update post tomorrow or nah?
I don't think so. i bet that since Type Arcade is something for Japan only they won't even mention it in CapcomUnity and that won't feature a lot of exclusive stuff or that they will release a lot of important content or features linked to that release.

And at Final Round I think maximum we'll get a trailer for the next character, and they may release him maybe next week. As always, if we're lucky and this character comes with a related stage then it would appear in that trailer.

So are we really going to have Type Arcade launch come-and-go with no news from Capcom?
As I remember they had an event in Japan next week to showcase SFVTA. Since the arcade version is for Japan only I assume they won't make any related announcement targeting worldwide audience. As we know, the main features of the arcade verstion is that the game is the first one to use that new Nesica card, that you can bring your own pad or arcade stick, that you can use there your PSN/Steam account to use costumes and colors and that it has a mode to fight other people playing in other arcades nationwide. Other than that and a more limited menu with less game modes, I think the game is the same 4.021 version that we have at least until now.
