    I picked up Soul Caliber VI last week when it was the deal of the week on the PSN. Best fighting game this gen for me.

    Yeah, I'm really enjoying it - it doesn't have the depth of Tekken IMO, but that's OK it's perfect for when I just have 15 minutes and can't really get into anything more time consuming.

    I need to step up my oki in soul calibur. The mechanics have changed too much for me for enjoy it fully. T7 is a man's game.

    Lol there's this video on YouTube showing the most dumbest characters created in SCVI. I had a laugh with that one. It's an advantage of the series over other fighting games. :lol:

    I am currently watching a Twitch stream of the new Samurai Shodon. The 3D look and feel looks very cool while having somewhat a 2D aesthetic. I'm intrigued about this new Samurai Shodon, honestly. The game even adopts the hashtag #EmbraceDeath . I don't think it is disrespectful to say this new SamSho is modern Street Fighter with weapons. It has that sort of look and feel, but this game still has the usual SamSho experience.

    Samurai Showdown has been in the shadows since SF took the spotlight for years.

    What are your thoughts about SamSho?
    With all the fast pace fighters out now; I love how SamSho has kept to its roots of slow-paced, high risk and high reward gameplay. Unfortunately, I did not get the season pass due to it being only a PSN thing. Hopefully, SNK will release the season pass for free or have some plan to balance the high price just for an upgrade in graphics but same game mechanics game.

    I'm so glad that it sounds like it's SamSho II in 2019, instead of the fast paced "why don't I just play KoF" that the series went off into after (and including) III.

    EVO 2019 is going on right now with a handful of tournaments. Among some of the games streamed on Twitch are Dragon Ball FighterZ, Tekken 7, Street Fighter V, and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate among others. Enjoy should you be watching!

    It's really offputting that they keep framing the Street Fighter finals under the context of the countries that the contestants come from vs the countries that the others come from.



    Edit: It's even worse in the Tekken tournament. It very nearly sounds like the implication is "Who could believe that someone from Pakistan could beat the powerhouses from Japan, Korea and Europe"

    Actually, I happen to be on the other side of the coin as I know Arslan Ash's promoter personally. And there is one thing that you happen to learn very quickly with Lukus "Dark Gesse" Allen, if HE wants to make a statement, he will.

    I missed playing Fight Night in my old PSP. For some reason, I still find it enjoyable, especially when I use legend heavyweight boxers such as Ali or Frazier to knock out the smaller guys from the lighter classes. While it seems to be unfair or cheating for some, I think it's epic and just do it for fun.

    Right now on Twitch, I am watching someone stream "Granblue Fantasy: Versus". I like the high-resolution 2D anime style of the graphics. Interesting cutscenes for Hyper moves in it as well.

    I saw a longplay of "Ehrgeiz: God Bless the Ring." It is a unique style 3D fighting game that kind of has elements of Tekken and Dead or Alive. It also has this sort of full range of motion deal along with being able to use items scattered in levels. I always knew Ehrgeiz as a game where you could play as Final Fantasy characters, especially FF7. It's an old game I probably wouldn't mind playing.

    I feel like something this insane is something only SNK could really do.

    WWE meets King of Fighters? What a crossover! I saw that sort of thing when I was watching "Friday Night SmackDown!" last night. Of course, many of us thought it was mind-blowing to see X-Men crossover with Street Fighter and eventually Marvel vs. CAPCOM. Let's not forget CAPCOM vs. SNK either. I guess we still have to wait to see something like Rusev vs. Zangief ("Rusev Machka!") or Braun Strowman vs. either Hugo/Andore or [SF5] Abigail.

    Big, serious allegations were coming regarding MrWizard (main organizer of EVO) and both players and game companies have pulled out of Evo Online, the replacement for Evo 2020 after it was cancelled due to the pandemic. And don't get me started on misconduct allegations between players that also blew up because of this...

    Alot of people are like "let the fgc burn and rebuild it" but the FGC is filled with drama.

    I remember seeing a custom RYU in some wrestling games.

    No special stuff for me to say here, but... happy birthday, M.U.G.E.N.! Today (July 17) is the birthday of the popular PC fighting game engine. It has been around since 1999. People still make characters and stages for this game even today. You can even look around on Twitch for SaltyBet and SpriteClub to see MUGEN in action. I was trying to make my own fighters [based on Kung Fu Man], but I have kind of stopped development so far.

    Anyhow... happy birthday, M.U.G.E.N.!
