I live in a giant bucket.
Just polished off Dragon Quest 8 -- the past three months were such a treasure that I didn't want it to end! Naturally, I took a break from my KoF Stadium music experimentation to celebrate by playing as Eight.

(Also, I'm no Sugiyama fan, but man, that world map theme's become one of my all-time gaming orchestral great. So soothing!)

DQ11, here I come!!

Smash fans scanning every TGA trailer for "Not actual gameplay footage:"

Haha, I see I'm not the only one who planned on keeping his eyes peeled.

The zoom in on Terry during his Final Smash, with his yellow FS eyes, as he says "HERE COMES A BIG ONE" and winds up for a Buster Wolf is the sickest shit.

One of the coolest Final Smashes.

And for those that were claiming modding a Mii hat like this would be impossible, well, this shoots that argument down.
Sure but it's just another piece on the "able to be faithfully recreated in a mod and pretty quickly" table. Whether or not it's real there's nothing in the video that's definitive proof of it being a debug video played by an actual Nintendo employee.

And the discussion's gotten tired, everyone's made clear whether they trust it or not, and unless we get some amazing new piece of evidence nothing's going to change.
As far as everyone was aware, it wasn't possible at the time. Someone proved it's possible a week later. It's possible someone else figured out how to do it and didn't share that knowledge with anyone, and made the leak -- sure. But a video leak like this is basically the best kind of leak we're ever going to get. Maybe it's fake, but it's also very possible it's real. There is basically nothing that can debunk it or confirm it other than a possible creator admitting it's a fake, or the confirmation of it officially. To me that is the best possible "leak" that can be out there. And certainly more valuable than whatever someone looking for attention like Sabi is or isn't vaguely saying.

It can be true, for sure, it's just that there's nothing in the video that can't be done by a dedicated modder.

Okay? This whole chain of conversation came out of you saying "So I think it might finally be dead now"

It's clearly not, as you are admitting. That's all.
I'm saying any belief in the video comes with the caveat that every single minute detail can be replicated in a modding job that takes a week. Like it or not that's a pretty crippling blow to the video's credibility.

It's not. It is irrelevant to the video's credibility. It showed us modding something like this is possible (after, at the time, people thought it wasn't). Okay. But that doesn't matter.

It doesn't directly show anything the video leak depicts (ie, the Mallow and/or Cacodemon hats) are fabricated by a fan. Therefore, it does not cripple the leak's "credibility" in any way.

Terry is such an excellent addition to this game. The fact that he ended up representing the entirety of SNK made it more than worth it. And he's super fun to play as.

The new arrangement of Psycho Soldier Theme is incredible too.

It's really amazing how Zero is consitently broken/top tier in every fighting game he appears in, no matter which form. SVC Chaos, Tatsunoko, Marvel 3 and Marvel Infinite all have Zero at the tippy tops of their tier lists
My favourite thing is Zero being top tier in vanilla Marvel 3 and UMvC3 for different reasons.

To be fair, you don't have to be an attention-seeking insider to see the writing on the wall for Geno not being in this Fighters Pass.

SVC Zero makes for quite the TAS bot in a game that normally has more limited mobility and offensive options than other SNK fighters.

on the other hand imagine the reaction at the TGAs if the character revealed is some niche Bandai Namco pick like Lloyd or Haruka Amami.
