Evidently someone in the SB Geno thread is claiming that the reason Sabi's source thinks the costumes are likely fake is because it doesn't match up with who character 5 is

shrug

I sleep, back to Terry

Terry is definitely a lot more fun and kinetic than Ryu/Ken. His moves just feel good to land and his movement is nice and fluid.

I have the least attachment and interest in FF/KOF compared to the other DLC franchises, but he's definitely one of the more fun characters to play as. I probably enjoy his playstyle more than Joker, a character from a game I'm actually a fan of.

It's so awesome to see Terry being so well-received by most of the community. Sakurai really succeeded in conveying why he loves SNK so much.

Before Terry, I definitely didn't believe Ultimate was going to pass 1000 music tracks; we were still 94 away, and even with more post-pass fighters, I didn't think we would get there.

But now we're at 956 tracks, so sure Sakurai, get to 1000!

Terry doesn't really mean anything to me and I can't get a grip on his playstyle, but he's a pretty darn well represented character. SNK got the red carpet treatment

Sabi's "source" is supposed to be a brand ambassador or writes books or something aren't they?

Seems Sabi is saying multiple things. I do believe the miis are fake but game awards reveal? Ehhhh nah. I see Metroid Prime 4 as the main focus there.

Fighting some CPUs on random with Terry:

-First character that comes up is Banjo
-Then K. Rool on Kongo Jungle with Crocodile Cacophony playing

What is the game trying to tell me?

You abandoned your children.

According to Discord, if anyone actually cares.

- Sabi's source most likely knows who fighter 5 is and is sitting on it in order to protect the identities and jobs of those involved in leaking that information.

- Sabi's source said that the mii costume leak is most likely fake due to their not having seen or heard of the cacodemon and mallow costumes before. Sabi is currently seeking clarification on this comment.

- Sabi did not anywhere imply or soft confirm doomslayer, just simply stated that doomslayer's chances are not affected by this leak being fake.

Prime 4 has probably been in development for what, a year? They're not gonna show it there.

Smash doesn't have to be the "focus." It's just a two minute character trailer. If the character is out in January, it would not make sense to show the character at any other venue if they can.

I feel like Terry will almost definitely benefit from the fabled Smash Boost more than any other character

so many I’ve Never Heard Of This Guy But I’m Gonna Check His Games Out posts these days

it helps that Neo Geo games are super easy to check out

It almost makes me want to get over my crippling fear of fighting games and download Garou.

I hope it means good things for KOFXV, I know that's unlikely but it'd sure be swell.

I tend to get bored with traditional fighting games unless they feature IPs/characters I'm already a fan of (Marvel Vs. Capcom, FighterZ, etc.). I get frustrated too easily. I might check out an SNK game on the eShop, though.

Are any of the Fatal Fury games any good because that plane shifting thing sounds super annoying.

The only KoF I kind of want to play is 98 but that one's not on sale.

Yep, the reception of him post-release versus the initial reveal has been great. Nice to see SNK get the exposure they deserve as well. Too many have slept on the company.
This, along with KoF and Samsho doing well, makes me thing they’re about to enter a new golden era for them. I think KoFXV is going to be a big step up from XIV.

I bought Fatal Fury Special but couldn't beat the first guy on the lowest difficulty so now I hate Terry.
In old Fatal Fury games, every character is a classic SNK boss!

Real Bout 2 has the best implementation of plane shifting. Garou doesn't have it at all. Garou has more forgiving A.I. compared to the others too, except when you fight Gato or Kain.

I like the Real Bouts but Garou is on another level

it’s just too bad the roster is so small. RIP Garou 2.........

SNK is def getting the Smash Boost. Especially how a sampling of SNK is basically $10 rn (Terry pack and an Arcade Archive game is $4 rn)

Real Bout Fatal Fury Special is my personal favorite. The combat feels very satisfying and the game is very Express.

Garou is also quality

Okay so...... I think i'm just going to continue ignoring her and keep my own predictions.

Maxwell confirmed then.
