I really like what I played, but I don't rightly understand much of it. The slow mo breaks and "finisher" moves come out of nowhere for me right now.

I'm definitely buying eventually. I don't mix well with online fighting games (the slightest amount of lag in this particular setting pisses me off), but the single player/offline options are looking really nice. At least compared to sc 5 and tekken 7.

Random aside, Geralt fits in much better than previous guests.

I really wish they had worked more on making the backgrounds look more detailed and less on those stupid weapon trail effects, I always hate those in games and they've gone over the top with them this time. The depth of field effect on the backgrounds kills the game when it comes to looks IMO, they should not be that blurry.

I hope we can turn them off. Why Neather Realms is the one churning out the best looking fighters is beyond me...

I know NRS makes 2D games but there is more detail in their 2D backgrounds than the entirety of many of SC6's 3D arenas.

There is no excuse background can't be more detailed, unless they do not hired enough environmental artists.

Neather realms art team made good background but the character is not the same level with all the manly looking women.

I wanna play this, but I've been severely spoiled by RDR2 and AC: O this month. I'm gonna wait for a sale and stuff.

I shouldn't buy it but at that price I'd probably get enough play time out of it. Still playing Samurai Showdown right now although only a handful of arcade fights every few days. Should be able to get the $20 out of this game.

So I bought the game. Wasn't really sure what was in it, but seems like the big thing is a create a fighter story mode which sounds cool. Time for big titty ninja.
