I love pokken too and as soon as I get my capture card in hoping to stream it a bit in the off time. It's slower paced than tekken but has a lot of the stuff I enjoy.

That's almost tempting enough to reinstall it, but KoF is coming in a few days so probably not.

I'm gonna be trying to get on some Pokken in the next month or two and hopefully gonna stream it or catch some footage of it. I really like the game but finding the time to devote to it has been pretty rough.

Really loving KOFXIV so far. I think Alice might be my favorite new cast member, if only because of her (functionally the same) Power Dunk move since they seem insistent that Terry needs to stick with Rising Taco. I'm really bummed that King lost both her air fireballs and her Double Strike super, making her a more up close and personal fighter now than the keepaway / stalling that I did with her in XIII.

Online play is kind of garbage if you try to connect to another person's lobby. I haven't seen any kind of stuttering if I set up one myself, though, so I'm not sure what the issue is beyond maybe just people with insufficient bandwidth trying to host.

Finally picked up Revalator and I gotta say this game is still nuts. I got to Raven trial 9 where I just put down the controller because I can't get the last sequence down no matter what. The character is super fun though! Ky was as basic as I remembered but he's got some dirty tricks in this. Anyone else around here place so I can get some ideas? Not sure who I'm gonna main though Jack.O looks pretty fun, and I love the looks of Leo a ton.

KoF online is good if you turn off allowing replays to be shared. It's just a shame that sharable replays are the default so you either get matched with with bad lag or fight the 3 people that turned off the feature that night repeatedly.

Ok I seriously love Jack.O but the one thing I absolutely suck at is air dashing after a jump cancel. I can't do that after any jump cancels.

Don't have a PS4 or the ability to play fighting games, but Jack-O's my fave.

Also, the dinosaur man in KoF is very good even though he has feathers bc he moves like a lumbering, cold-blooded lizard. (if I had the power to summon IPs from the grave, Primal Rage would be back)

I've been playing a lot of KoF XIV! No online play involved, since I don't have PS+, though I've been considering changing that. I've been loving it as a long time KoF fan. I hated about half of the new characters going in, but I've warmed up to most of them at this point. Meitenkun remains the one I'm the most "ugh" about, but realizing the little bits of Tung Fu Rue style in his movelist helps with that. My team continues to be most of my old standards, though Xanadu, Zarina, and Muimui have been getting a fair bit of play as well.

The system seems like a simpler, smoother version of XIII's that sits really well with me. Most of my KoF was in the '99 - XI era, so MAX mode is something I've never done much, but I feel like it's a lot easier to understand and use in this game. Also, I was initially put off by the Rush auto-combos that come out from mashing Light Punch near your opponents, but I relaxed a lot once I realized it was doing an isolated unique Rush combo of mediocre quality, and not auto-inputting a legitimate combo. However, even though I've played KoF a long time, it seems like you have to be more precise than usual with your inputs this time around. Maybe I'm just getting rusty?

I'm also going to comment on the story a bit, though I doubt that matters to most. I was expecting to hate Antonov from the start, since he looked like an even lamer version of Duke from Maximum Impact, but I've actually ended up liking him a lot, since it turns out he's just KoF's version of Hercule/Mr. Satan. The plot was completely inscrutable on my first play through the game, but I think I've worked out at this point that Ash/Saiki's actions messing with time in XIII has unhinged reality, enabling some force to gather lost spirits throughout space-time to empower itself? The last boss was definitely the easiest last boss I've ever faced in KoF, and apparently its defeat is SNK's excuse for random lost souls to be reincarnated, such as the previously lost to time Ash Crimson. It's a silly plot, and I hate reincarnation, but they already brought back Vice and Mature with a hand wave, and if this lets them bring New Faces Team back, I'll support it. I was also a little peeved that no characters from the Ash Saga were in the roster for this game, so I'm happy to see Elizabeth and Ash make it into storyline at least. Kukri seems to be the only one that knows what's going on, and I'm hoping no more time-based shenanigans are involved.

I also got GG Revelator a bit back, and Jack-O was def my fav as well, ousting my old secondary of Ky. But that was just before the Dizzy DLC came out, and I haven't messed with it since then, so I dunno' if Jack-O will have ousted my old main of Dizzy.

Almost picked up KoF after hearing max say the game just felt fun to play, and then they got to the net code needs fixing, but they acknowledged it was a bug and being worked on. Time will tell, it so many good games out to play.

The patch this week already fixed the netcode. Only one I had a problem this weekend was a Brazilian dude but even that was playable, just slower.

Virtua Fighter 5: Final Showdown has been added to xbone backwards compat today.

In addition to it featuring in Yakuza 6, owners of both current gen models can experience the rich, smokey flavor.

I feel you. I went back to SFV after most-of-a-month off playing Deus Ex, and I'm SUPER rusty. It's rough out there.

Of course, when I can't afford to buy it. Granted, I already have it on PS3, but I plan to get it on PS4 once I actually GET my PS4 next Friday. (should've already had it, but SURPRISE BILL FROM MOM!)

Finally started playing it~! I've had an embarrassing, depressing addiction to the shitty Skinnerware mobile game, which distracted me from... anything that would be more enjoyable than that. It has a cloud save, too. Fucked up.

Anyway: Test Your Might? Sucks, and is no fun, from what I can tell. I'm sure there's a trick, like there is in the mobile game.

I like... Tanya. I'm a big fan of her goofy leg moves - combining the best of Orchid's and Mira's from KI. Flip kicks and flying low kicks or whatever. I don't know the lingo! I just know it looks cool.

I like Tanya's spear variation and how it forces all of her moves to keep her airbourne. Like you said, reminds me of another KI character: Sadira~
