That's just the way it is folks. Fun stuff is now largely behind paywalls and quicklooks are now largely Patrick Klepek.
 
Can't say I blame them but actually yes I can because this is and always has been the results of failing to monetize the site in a sensible way that doesn't strip quality.

For all the talk about artistic merit some of the art sure is garbage. Some of those "cutscenes" look like they were made in five minutes, backgrounds don't look great even if they scroll nicely, character art is dotted here and there with things like sausage fingers and lopsided breasts and even things like flinching, falls and some special moves have so few frames of animation that they look like paper cut outs on sticks.

This thread sure is full of long chunks of text defending a poorly thought out product so let's make a list instead!

-Shitty training mode? Check, even though I couldn't defend this claim if my life depended on it.

-No move lists? Check, even though this criticism has been thoroughly explained numerous times, but I'm too high up on this soapbox to care.

-Hilariously bad difficulty curve? Check, because I seem to think "check" means "100% wrong."

-Limited multiplayer lobbies? Check. Hey, a stopped clock is right twice a day.

-Shitty translations for non-english language? Check. And that would be the "twice a day part."

-Gimmicky art direction? Check, because I could totally explain why it's "gimmicky" without sounding like I pulled this out of my ass.

-Awful load times? Check, because several seconds is "awful."

-Poorly planned features like letting you fight with one character when assists are huge and an overzealous infinite protection? Check, because, again, couldn't defend this claim if I desperately needed to.

Yeah that sure looks like a good product.

Fixed. It's really easy to sound like you know what you're talking about when you don't know what you're talking about; it's much harder to actually know what you're talking about. Though hey, by all means, do back up all except the two valid concerns you brought up with reasons a fourth grader couldn't tear to shreds. I'd be interested in hearing them.

Oh with pleasure!

- Shitty training that doesn't show your input OR with any settings for the training dummy, you know, things that actually help you train moves instead of just flailing around.

- No move lists, something that people seem to think is no big deal except normal people don't want to check a printout or a laptop to see what they are doing.

- Ms. Fortune is a harder fight than many many many other characters so there's your retarded difficulty curve.

- Art direction more like ASSES AND TITTIES YALLS! VIDEOGAME REFERENCES! ANIME UP THE ASS!

- Load times? Why yes people are suffering long load times at random on both PS3 and 360 but I guess you don't know that (cause you are in denial).

- And shitty features? Why the infinite combo protection doesn't let you use moves more than once and fighting with a single character is shit because having the assists from your team is hugely important.

There. Do you have any other brilliant points I can prove wrong or is the air too thin to think up there on your high horse?

No movelists and a garbage training mode with barely any options. So much for all the bullshit hype about making fighting games accessible.

Woops! I was going to post something snarky about Premium Subscribers Pride but I lost all my energy sidestepping WM's dreams and hopes on my way here.
