FritesMayo over on GameFAQs posted about Falke getting a Katt (from Breath of Fire II) crossover costume. The site he mentioned apparently sourced it from the official EU PlayStation blog, so it's looking legit.

Also, this fits with what X-Kira said about Falke and others getting costumes soon. I wonder if the Sagat and Menat ones will end up being paid BoF costumes?

Make it a collection of the movie games:
SF Real Battle on Film (Saturn port of the arcade game0
SF The Movie (Arcade port, which is not the same as the Saturn game)
SF2 Movie (its basically the animated SF2 film but spliced in with some lite 2D fighting bits. Basic idea is powering up one of Bison's bots that scan the fighters in the movie to be able to defeat Ryu).

I'd totally buy this pack. And chances are, I'd be the only person buying it!

"If we shuffle around old content into bundles, and throw a costume at them, maybe they'll forget the fact that they may have to wait a YEAR for a major new character release!"

You know full well it's counter programming to get people away from Mortal Kombat 11 and playing Street Fighter V.

Now, how successful such counter programming is going to do? Well...
It ain't gonna amount to a fart in the wind because they aint offering shit that matters. In the face of arguably the biggest game in the genre. No characters, no gameplay updates, no significant gameplay modes, no new systems. The only thing they could do without offering any of those things is make SFV a F2P like KI.

I don't even care anymore at this point. I know it won't have as strong of legs but with MK11 right around the corner, it'll give us something new to do until a character reveal announcement.

Joker out today
MK11 out next week
And all SFV is going is a limited free trial that just adds a costume on a charecter that people can't even play because it's dlc.

Yeah, I was thinking about the load times yesterday, it'd be so nice to get something even just a bit faster. SSD could really help SFV's loading problem. Now if only it could get characters to release faster as well ;)

Mmmm. Faster load times.

But yea, gonna dope that PS5 at launch.

I wonder what fighting games will fill the landscape next gen, and what console the fgc adopts as the standard for tournies.

Hope we get a new killer instinct.

Wasn't it Double Helix that did the first season though? Amazon hold them captive now. I think Iron Galaxy did season 2 (and 3?) though so there still might be hope.

Honestly though, only fighters I really look forward to next gen are from SNK and Capcom. Gimme more KOF, Garou, Marvel (or just Vs Capcom games in general), Rival Schools... or just SF6, which seems far more likely than pretty much any other of those games.

Provided that Sony don't screw up PS5 by making it more difficult to develop for (unlikely with Cerny once again serving as the architect) or more expensive than the competition, then it'll likely be PlayStation again as the tournament standard, particularly with BC with PS4 to bridge the gap until next-gen fighters begin showing up in greater numbers. SF likely won't be only one console + PC again, but there's nothing to point to fighting game developers having incentive to prioritize Xbox based on the markets/buying habits of each brand either.

Part of me thinks that the way Capcom is handling SFV this year is due the fact that next gen consoles are on their way soon. Basically I'm speculating that SF6 is coming sooner rather than later. Not as a PS5 launch title, but early 2021. That would mean we only have 1 more full year of SFV left after this year. Maybe they do want to do a final package like others have speculated? Whatever their plans are for this year I hope we don't have to wait too much longer to find out.

And if we do only have till 2021 then I have some work to do. I wanted to reach Grand Master before SF6 comes out. I just got Ultra Diamond and I know this is when it gets really hard to move up. Plenty of time left but it's a struggle to gain points.

Honestly I found Ultra way easier than Super. Less people doing random ass shit. The rushdown gets strong as fuck though.

I think some of Double Helix's work carried over into Season 2. Season 3 was all Iron Galaxy and you can kind of tell by how the characters have a slightly different style.

It shouldn't matter, you're facing the same people whether you're Super or Ultra Diamond. Difference is that Diamonds are a lot scarier as a UD. I think UD's go negative against a Diamond even if they win the set 2-1. Even SD's are a pain for UD's. And on top of that ranked is chocked full of GM's and UGM's who want their points to.

That's why I think going from UD to Master is the hardest climb. You really have to prove yourself because you lose so much against the two lower ranks while still dealing with all the best online players at the same time. This is not as much of an issue in any of the lower ranked groups because you know you're only facing the next highest rank while mostly playing the same rank or lower ones that you can more consistently 2-1 or 2-0.

I wouldn't be surprise if Capcom got one of those early PS5/NewXbox devkits and has been mainly focusing on that. Probably wishful thinking on my part. New consoles on the way, probably figured they squeezed all they could from SFV and using the big resources on a future SF6 release with the new guy in charge. They already established SF as their Esport staple for the future, time for SFV to receive the bare minimum going forward.

Also, another S+ tier costume for Falke. I actually wish that was her default hair color, it's a good look.

Well in my experience I fought A LOT less Diamonds once I was Ultra and that made it significantly easier for me. Super Diamonds are still nutty but I seemed to face a lot more Ultra and Masters since I think ranked generally tries to keep you within one rank above or one rank below, unless of course it just can't find anyone and then it'll just match you with whoever.

Could've just been my experience though.

I'd like to get to Grand Master at some point, but I don't know if I have the grind in me to do it.

Hm, might set aside FM for the Falke costume, undecided.

After trying Juri against actual players, I think I'll be adding her to my character rotation.
I’ve previously posted about how much I dislike her nonsensical storing system, but I’ve been playing her in casual a bit because I got two of her colors in fighting chance. As a former Juri main in SF4 I defInitely still find her fun, but I don’t love her because of all of the QOL changes she needs. I just don’t understand why Capcom can’t fix these BASIC things about Juri:

1. Flickering DP hitbox is WTF and has absolutely no reason to not be fixed
2. Giving her more plus frames (fireball should be +)
3. Reverting her damage back to what it used to be
4. Increasing hitbox on fuha store

Then there are just character design things like her having no setups or mixups and giving up pressure to store. She is frustrating to me because there’s really no reason she shouldn’t be better when they’re perfectly fine with giving Rashid more oki just because :)

So I was going up against a Dhalsim player and when he did his CA, this happened:


Either I got that frame perfect throw by accident or... I don't know.

Where are you currently?

Regardless, you can do it. Sometimes you just need that extra push. That's how it was for me.
