Week of April the 22nd to the 28th, 2013.

Fighting Games Weekly is the weekly discussion thread for all things fighting games. News, events, streams, videos, players, drama, everything fighting game related.

New to FGC-GAF is the FGC-GAF Index which lists the fighting games GAFers plays as a neat reference with some rough statistics to boot. To add yourself to the index, quote this post and use the survey link below. Please remember to save/bookmark the "Edit your response" link so you can edit your responses if/when you buy a game already on the list or a new game that releases in the future.

Assuming you paid for watching the movie in whatever medium you are watching, you were better off saving the money for Injustice.
Or getting the Green Lantern animated features, or the DVD/Bluray of the CGI Green Lantern TAS.

edit: oh and my bro got me Injustice for 19 Pounds/$30 after trading in some games. This one came with the Red Son alts >=3

I'm still waiting for the Marvel event that will truly dethrone Season's Beatings Velocity as the funniest/most satisfying Stream Monster experience I've had yet. Final Round this year came close because of Flocker adopting the MorriDoom, but he petered out before doing anything big with it.

It needs male characters as much as marvel needs megaman x

Just there for the casual crowd aka interest bait as it doesn't improve the game in any single way gameplay wise

Honestly it's neither better or worse than the console versions. People will claim its fucked up, but I see no difference compared with the console versions. Good connections are good, and bad connections are bad.

Hsien-Ko would beat MorriDoom free.

Sad part is this could be somewhat true if (U)MVC3 Hsien wasn't about as viable as a soup sandwich competitively.

ATM it seems like PR Rog no longer gives a damn, while F Champ is probably going to try and gimmick his way to beating Chris G (and getting bodied for it). Only J Wong seems to have any chance of beating Chris G, and I felt that he was a lot closer to doing that in Texas Showdown than people give him credit for. His matches against Chris G constantly ended up being Spencer + Frank vs Solo Doom, and he seemed to be completely unfamiliar with that matchup, seeing how he was blindly jumping at Chris G's Doom and getting foot dive'd for it. If J Wong can master the Spencer vs Doom matchup I think his chances of beating Chris G is very high, because he has a very strong understanding of how to beat Morridoom.

I'd rather have had the cast stay all-girl, but since they threw in a guy I want more.

I'm just going to pretend when they rebuilt Big Band they did a sex change by accident as well.
