  1. I'd rather you all went back to the subject of DJP's video upload as opposed to back-and-forthing about terminology. And on the subject, That video really does an excellent job of identifying one of the biggest problems with video gaming, that might be scene as sexist behavior-forming, and that's lazy storytelling.
  2. I'd also agree that parrying is much more accessible in this iteration. Parrying in Third Strike always seemed like (and usually was) a high-level technique that I'd never have the skill to use effectively. That's a totally different story in SFV, though I haven't figured out how to use it as an offensive tool other than trying to mixup an opponent after they get knocked down. I appreciate the balancing as well, since you can't use it without a bar of meter, so it can't be spammed indiscriminately.
  3. So after spending some time with the game over the past few days, I think I'm enjoying it a lot more. I can't speak to the PS4 experience since I'm on PC, but other than the controller issue and fullscreen not outputing properly to 60hz on my TV screen (48" 4k Samsung LED whoo!) which I eventually found a workaround for, the game is performing very well, and all my matches online have been super stable for the most part. For reference, I'm on a wireless connection to my router on the opposite corner of the floor beneath me, with several wireless devices connected to my system. On the subject o
  4. While it's slightly annoying because of the Start button issue I mentioned in my original post, I can confirm that my Madcatz Xbox 360 Soul Calibur V stick works just fine on PC, though with some changes to in-game button configs.
  5. If you all remember, time was that you'd get a finished game with all kinds of bonus content stuffed in there in so many unexpected ways. Time also was that game development wasn't nearly as expensive as it is now and didn't sometimes require an army of developers to make. Games also haven't increased in price to compensate for the current financial landscape, which means that developers/publishers are going to try to find as many ways as they can to recoup their investment/cut costs. This naturally takes the form of DLC cash shops or large swaths of content cut to meet release schedules. Case
  6. I haven't really had too much time to delve into it because life reasons, but I think I enjoy it from what I've played? Not entirely sure yet. While it doesn't bug me as much, since if I'm not playing online, I'm in training mode, the game DOES feel pretty barebones and unfinished. The rumor floating around is that they wanted to get it out with enough time before EVO. I'm assuming some marketing guy high enough that Ono couldn't say no to him said "Let's get this out for EVO for MASS publicity/sales!", which isn't a bad assumption to make, but that's too insider baseball to get into, Mec
  7. The biggest problem with Rey is that, at least initially with Episode VII, she's essentially Luke Skywalker and Han Solo all in one, what with her being a pretty strong force-sensitive on top of essentially owning the Millenium Falcon. I don't feel like I'm able to articulate this point very well, but there has to be SOME kind of limit to characters or else those adolescent power fantasy accusations start rolling in. And it was just as bad with Anakin not only being the chosen one, but also having built 3PO and several other attributes.
  8. Yep, now we just need that FFX/X-2 release schedule and some kind of announcement for FFXII. It's actually pretty surprising that we haven't heard anything about a PC release of Final Fantasy Tactics, given that there's already a mobile version of War of The Lions out there.
  9. One thing I've never really understood, especially after re-watching the entire saga before watching The Force Awakens, is the general apathy towards the prequels, and, even more perplexing because I thought it was part of the sacred cow original trilogy, Return of The Jedi. I'm sure there has to be some actual reasons other than Jar Jar Binks and ewoks, but I can't really see 'em. I've heard people railing on the acting (in the case of the prequels), which seems legitimate, but then, I was more interested in the overarching story than anything else I guess. I mean, I greatly enjoyed The Fo
  10. Pretty much my thoughts exactly. As if the Skywalkers were the only force sensitives in the entire bleeding galaxy.
  11. Pretty much hit the nail on the head. They tried to stuff WAY too much towards the end of the movie that were callbacks to entries in the previous trilogy. So much in fact that it was hard to focus on what was going on towards the end. I'd also disagree with the idea that Finn is "Jar Jar Lite". Aside from his awkwardly "urban" dialogue, it makes sense why he's so finicky. He's been born and bred to be nothing more than a weapon of the First Order, and hasn't really experienced anything that wasn't seen from the inside of his stormtrooper helmet. Hell, he never had an actual name 'til Poe g
  12. You're absolutely right. It SHOULD be exciting, but it's absolutely disappointing.
  13. Because the director had to remind movie goers that this was Star Wars apparently. I also felt those scenes were pretty forced. In fact, the entire "we've gotta find Luke" plot made the film a lot weaker in my opinion. The whole movie seemed pretty deserving of that purported subtitle for Spaceballs 2. Either that or The Damned's " stupid mcguffin building thing". Episode VIII better be amazing.
  14. But Kylo Ren is a Sith, and built up as a ridiculously powerful one at that(though caveat again, still in training apparently). It would have been fine if she were toe to toe with him, but he was clearly outmatched throughout a large portion of that fight, and that isn't consistent.
  15. I have to agree. Jedi already did that, and once is enough. I feel like Episode VII was fun, but it was too careful in a lot of respects, and I didn't like how they took Han's children from the Extended Universe and watered them down (to only one so far) for mass market consumption. Also, why the entire fuck is Kylo Ren, who yes is apparently still in training, but should still be competent with a blade, absolutely useless against a girl who thought the Jedi were a bunch of myths? What happened to the republic that was supposed to have been propped up after Jedi, and why are we back to the "R
