This game actually looks very tempting. The fact that it doesn't mess with the UI, and has both CPS2 stages and characters potentially make this the definitive version of SSF2T. If this is about 40, there must be much more to this package as Capcom usually offers their digital remasters for less (like the RE's or DMC4 SE).
HD Remix was shit. It wasn't only the style I didn't like, its the fact SF2 doesn't have that many animations. Its fine with the old graphics, but with remixed characters it came off as shit. And while the old sprites were in, they looked terrible when placed on the HD backgrounds.
This clearly is a mini-game or a side-story mode where you beat Shadaloo goons and eventually that results in regular 2D fights with stage bosses aka Bison or the rest.
Those are street fighter 4 assets, because street fighter 5 is co-produced and exclusive to Sony.
It will be a crappy first person VR mini game. Calling it now.
Maybe some sort of ARMS like mini-game?
What's a tech throw and why is it a big deal?
I'm guessing it's when he blocks the initial throw attempt?
Yes when they separate from each other after the throw attempt that is the throw tech they added. Before there was throw softening, where you would take less damage from a throw after being thrown and do something like land on your feet instead of your back, so you are in a slightly better position than if you didn't soften it. You can die while attempting to throw soften before. Now with throw techs, you don't take any damage and both players are in a neutral state if it occurs. Which means throwing will be less effective than before, since it will effect things like ending rounds because throwing to end a round was very effective before since even if they soften it, they will die if they had low health, but throw teching will make it so it can't happen anymore.
They can't use SFV assets, Sony paid for those.
Yes, but Sony paid for the development of SFV so said game can come out faster.It's not like Sony owns the assets, they just helped with making the development quicker. IIRC without Sony's help, Ono said SFV would've probably been released in 2018. Shadaloo goon is definitely from SFV while Ryu and the stage is from SFIV.
How about this, Sony likely dictates if Capcom can use the SFV assets or not (as per SFV being a PS4 console exclusive). How's that wording?Then why is sf5 on steam?
Might want to reword that better :x
We need this.
I kinda want this.. for 30 or less though.
40 is japan right? I'm sure they will price it more affordable for the us.. right?
😷😷😷😷😷I remember when people called me crazy for wanting a re-release for 3rd Strike on current consoles and PC because it supposedly would cannibalize SFV's sales but here we are, a new port of SFII.
Heck, if anything, this makes me hopeful again for that 3rd Strike re-release! (Hopefully one with an option to have new balancing and Wild Guns Reloaded style new characters drawn in the original's style).
