How's everyone feeling about the revealed V.Skill IIs so far? Kage's 'dome crusher' looks great, proper satisfying impact on it when in V.Trigger.

 

 

I liked that Poison's is her flip from Final Fight. I want Sagat to also have a cartwheel that lets him escape the corner, preferably with the most camp animation possible.

The Character intro video for Gill is up. Since he has his unique Retribution mechanic he doesn't have a Crush Counter of his own. He looks ferocious!

 

A wee sneak peek of Cammy's VTrigger II (being blocked) in there near the end too. And the Pyron costume's light retracting aura looks annoying, haha.

RB|Bonchan (Karin) vs. Rise|Smug (G) is one hell of a match. (I'll spoiler anything past the first round)

 

Last nights LCQ was absolutely wild. It was like going back 15 years, everyone cramped in a small bar. Grand finals happening on a 24" Monitor surrounded by hundreds of people. People standing right behind matches commentating on everything "What the hell were you thinking, doing that?". The only footage came from phones or handheld cameras. Everyone chucked out of the building the moment it ended...

 

It was bloody amazing to watch, the atmosphere was so good. Loved every minute of it.

My friend who moved away some years ago emailed me out of the blue to catch up and mentioned that he needed my address to send something he borrowed from me years ago, but didn’t immediately offer up what it was. I was confident it was my CvS2 guidebook, obviously largely irrelevant now but still full of lovely art and that.

 

It says a lot about the person I was and who I am now that I was disappointed to find out it was a only a pornographic dvd.

:omg:

 

Sensational from Idom. He wrings every bit of potential from Laura. Spacing, patience, the offense, mix ups, Fujimura-esque optimisation on the damage. Absolutely different planet from anyone else who has tried to main her since the game launched. Loved seeing the Poison also, I like her a lot in this game. Amazing grand finals. Punk is forever cursed to win everything in sight aside from the big 2 majors. As soon as Idom got a foothold in the set you saw Punk missing his low forward Tenko confirms and fall apart against a player he's beaten countless times without breaking a sweat. He just cannot close out Evo or Capcom Cup, must be maddening.

I like that big controllable fireball thing and that Seth has a different selection of stolen moves going on this time. The move steal v skill is excellent.  Beefing up and shouting abiabiabiabiigail PUNCH in particular is hilarious. 

 

Also Guile's v-skill 2 looks like some black belt edition stuff. I like it.

Here are the patch notes. They don't seem to cover everything, but there's a brief overview for every character.

Theres more adjustment detail from Capcom here though I cant seem to download the odf at the moment:

Looks like Ryu's had some decent buffs and Birdie some fair sized nerfs on paper? Dunno about chain being improved though really. On the whole it does look like they've improved the weaker characters and weakened the strong ones.

 

Oh man, instead of the hoped-for general tiger knee buff they've made Sagat's V-Skill II power them up like V-Skill I does with uppercuts. That seems pretty lazy and weak considering the utility of some of the other V-Skills. Some nice but probably not game changing buffs to the range/frames of his normals though and st.LK having reduced pushback should make some combos a bit more reliable and maybe hit-confirmable.

 

About the final:

 

 

Aside from being such an incredible achievement, there was some delicious schadenfreude since Punk was back to his old teabagging ways. I can't say I've ever taken to him as a character at all and I find it kind of amazing that he still hasn't learned any class or humility even after choking in several high profile moments.

 

Also, Daigo's reaction to the end of this round and apparent momentary confusion about where he is nourishes my soul:

I am really not sure where to post this, but here goes...

 

Which are the best versions of SF that are worth my coin? I have a PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, DC, Saturn, Vita, PSP and Switch. I already have the DC and Saturn games... but they’re not with me. Only the Switch, PS4, Vita and PSP are with me at the mo. Advice appreciated!
