I really wanted to give this game a chance but between the bullet sponge horses, bullet sponge people, automatic and semi-auto weapons in WW1, and nobody playing the damn objective, I just can't get into it.
Been playing Karin this beta and really liking her. Rollback is being awful though and apparently I'm not the only one affected. I heard if you turn off crossplatform play it helps but haven't had a chance to check.
@starvinggamer: Even disregarding Smash it makes absolute no sense to not have SFIV. That game has way more viewers and potential entrants than KI or Marvel.
Edit: Not to say that those aren't great games to watch. They are. But not having SFIV in EVO this year just doesn't make any sense to me unless Capcom said to cut it for SFV focus, which I highly doubt happened.
Having two Smash games and fucking Pokken in over USFIV is a tragedy and really just confirmed my fear about EVO. Fuck that. Have two Smash games but not two Street Fighters because fuck the FGC right Mr. Wizard?
The only time my local gamestop tries to upsell me is when I buy long RPGs. For Dark Souls 1 and 2, Bloodborne, and the Witcher 3 they tried to sell me the strategy guide and said I'd never finish those games without it. They also seemed baffled by my Street Fighter V pre-order.
I'd been following Gamespot since '98. After Jeff got fired and the rest left, I stayed on Gamespot because I didn't know they started something new. Then the P4 Endurance Run happened and somehow I found that. Took me longer to actually make an account on the site though. It's still super weird for me to think about people joining the site after Ryan died.
When I saw 7 games or less I wasn't happy about the cuts that will have to happen. That said my list is USFIV, SFV, Melee, Marvel, GG, MKX, Tekken 7.
I feel like USFIV has to be there. This year is showing that it still has a lot of steam left in it and there's no guarantee that everyone is going to move to V right away. There's a lot of grumbling about it already. Marvel has to be there because at this point, it's an institution. On the subject of Smash, I have to put aside my personal feelings that it doesn't deserve to be there at all and concede to Melee. I know it's a big draw for viewers and attendees. MKX for similar reasons, plus it's fun to watch. GG for anime representation. I believe CEOtaku is going to be a nice "Anime EVO" in the future. Tekken 7 for obvious reasons.
KoF, KI, Pokken are all definite cuts. KI is cool and I'd love it to be there, but it just doesn't pull in the numbers. Also, I gather that the Smash community doesn't exactly like Smash 4 or at the very least prefers Melee. Which leaves Blazblue as the sad omission.
