NOTE: As title suggests you can post anything general related to SFV here, got a news to share ? use this thread, facing a problem launching the game after an update ? that goes here as well or if you have general ranting against SFV, this is your place.
So lets start by sharing the new that we are getting new 30th anniversary costumes on August 29th, here are some screenshots.
Bison & Ibuki: Looks real good. Karin: Almost good but again Capcom shows they can destroy a good costume with play-doh hair... Guile: I don't like it at all.
Hopefully there's more to 30th than this because I'm not a fan of their way to celebrate this anniversary is getting an excuse to make money, how about giving their loyal fans something for just being here. They could use some goodwill.
Did I hear something free ? It's Capcom my friend, they will never give anything for free in fact most of their DLC now is going in the territory of real money with no option of getting it with fight money. Kind of sad but I knew that would happen eventually. When people were happy with the announcement of fight money, I was thinking that they will only leave the most useless content for that currency.
I wanna hate parade Bison but that pimp-ass cape totally sold me. I dig it. You know, it's funny, pre-modder me would be outraged that Ibuki gets even more costumes, while Birdie/Fang get nothing and post-modder me understands that if you're trying to make a profit people go nuts for their waifus so there's no reason for Capcom to not give the people what they want, I guess.
I'd love to learn who decides which costumes are getting made and why, someday. You would think if they had any sense they would do a costume contest or a poll or something.
Waifus rule, man. No two ways about it. I wanted to hope for a patch balance, but we know better than that. Capcom modus operandi has always been, the more people playing, the more costumes coming. At least it was that for Cammy and Chun for a while, now that almost everyone has forsaken them for 'better' chars. We see an awful lot of new costumes coming to other chars, like Ibuki. Think with me, before Xian showed her true potential and how cheap she can be at final round earlier this year, people weren't playing here that much even though I always knew she was a beast due to having played with some good players in my region. After that, the Ibuki train began and now how many costumes does she have?
Same goes for Laura, season 1 she wasn't so cheap and people didn't quite played her, now she's getting more. Goes to Karin with Punk showing the world how good she is, even without a strong/reliable anti-air. Juri got buffed, than nerfed, than buffed and nerfed again, but no one really stopped playing her, so... - The worst thing is that they don't finish nor polish their designs, like you guys already pointed out. Ibuki removing her mask without having a mask, or just the action of removing without removing anything, Bison and his invisible hat. Not to mention the physics collision. That's why I get triggered some times. Designs of the costumes aside, since is quite subjective, you guys always fix their shit, make it better. It shouldn't be this way, speacially with the price they asking.
Worse thing is, I love capcom, most of my games are from this franchise, but it's quite sad to see how they handle their business, specially since the dlc era started, not that they didn't already used since 93 with Super version of SFII, but it's only getting worse and worse, and while I like SFV, I'm not inclined to play due to a lot of reasons, I still do it 'cause of mods that makes it almost a new game.
Sigh, the ravings of an old tired man. - BTW, do you guys watch/follow the pro scene? If so, who you guys like best? Or hate, lol.
