    I haven't played the more recent games much at all, but I grew up playing UMK3 and always had a soft spot for Reptile. I used to like playing Stryker and Smoke too. Man it's been way too fucking long though, and that's the case for fighters in general. I've been considering getting MK11 tbh.

    I used to probably play Tekken the most out of all the fighter franchises.

    Old school Tekken was my shit growing up. Its pretty technical if I recall.
    And UMK3 is like the ultimate MK game in my book, or at least MKT for the N64 since it had literally everybody.

    Have you tried Pokken?

    Our roomate has it and I've watched her and April play it, but never picked it up myself. Everything looks crisp as well as the controls (from a watching view.)

    I've been mostly playing Sword lately. It's aight, some cool new mechanics, some mechanics that make it a bit too cheesy though. Grinding is basically a non-existent concept with new Pokémon games which might sound like a weird complaint I guess.

    Oh and fuck Game Freak for excluding Magnemite in this new game. :cry:

    Were you all for the grinding aspect?
    SW/SH looks too easy to me. It looks like it lacks the challenge of the old games. I like some of the new mons but it doesn't have a whole lot holding it up.

    @Terasophe Sword/Shield's legacy will be that it was a necessary step towards non-linear open-world Pokémon games, and that's about it. The Dynamax/Gigantamax gimmick sucks balls (even if some of the designs look cool), the continuation of allowing you to swap out party Pokémon with a newly caught Pokémon from Sun/Moon is good, but mostly everything else is just pointless or it makes it too easy (like every Pokémon getting XP regardless of if they're used, even if you catch the Pokémon rather than defeating it).

    I wouldn't say I'm all about grinding, but there's literally zero investment in your Pokémon I feel, because you can raise them so easily now. It's like eh fuck it, use whoever, throw them in the box and use something else, who gives a fuck.

    Thats kinda sad to me. Looks like I have no reason to get the games. The gym leaders look cool though.

    Street Fighter II: The Animated Movie and the Street Fighter II V series are both pure class.

    I still think it's worth playing, just wait until it's going cheap. Small things will please nostalgic people, like running around the huge wild areas and seeing Pokémon walk around and even chase you. The first time I came across a Tyrogue I wasn't expecting him to emerge from the grass and run full pelt at me lmao.
