thought they skipped adding a story to this one. I may actually get it now.
Who cares about story mode? Story modes have always been in fighters, but they were never as obtrusive as MK & DC's crap where the majority of the budget went into the damn story mode that most people only play through once. It's pissing me off that fighters can no longer get away without story crap that's just uneeded. All the story you need could be placed inside a menu profile somewhere. Back in the day, the only story was in the instruction manual.I played through both MK9 & MKX's campaigns and I don't understand the hype. The plots suck. At least SFV's garbage story mode at least had character arcs for Rashid, Nash & Ryu. MKX's plot is just outer realm politics and Cassie randomly saving the day because she's Johnny Cage's daughter so she magically has his special gene or whatever. Hah hah this is what passes as good writing to Westerners? Meanwhile, SFV's crappy story mode at least had Nash sacrificing himself so that he could weaken Bison enough for Ryu to finish him off.
Also getting tired of the constant bringing up of Ninja Gaiden Black, sure it's a fantastic game but it had it's own problems and hardly balanced from my standpoint.Why does a single player game which has no PvP at all, need to be balanced? If the CPU has to cheat in order to create a challenge then let it. The cpu will always be dumber than a human controlled opponent. Damn Soulslikes, they're ruining the action game genre with their 'fair & balanced' crap as if they were playing a fighting game. If anything, I wish Nioh were more like NG, where enemies regularly ganged up on you and actually try to kill you even when you run away. Unlike this sissy Nioh/Souls nonsense where the enemies where they stop attacking you if you run away like a scrub.The funny thing about NGB, is that it actually had a freeroam set up sort of like Dark Souls, but with combat that isn't piss easy. The only challenge from Dark Souls is from PvP, not from the actual game itself.Nioh is piss easy compared to Dark SoulsI die way more in Nioh than I've ever had in Dark Souls, or Demon's Souls. (The only two that I played all the way without getting bored.) The main reason is because the Red Reveneant AI actually fights back. Dark Soul's difficulty is more structured like a dungeon crawl or a survival horror where you'll mostly die from being unprepared rather than the actual combat itself.The only Dark Souls boss that gave me problems was that Bed of Chaos chump, and even then it wasn't due to the fighting. It's because of the damn cliffs that chump would make during the battle. Fair is a term Souls players because it sounds better than piss easy.Exactly! What I really hate about Nioh & Dark Souls is how the CPU always has the courtesy to wait for you to get into their range before they start attacking. LOL! I realize that's just a mechanic of the lame soulslike genre that lets you choose to fight at your own pace, but it's a yuge step down for those of us who grew up playing Street Fighter, Samurai Shodown, Devil May Cry & Ninja Gaiden. Games where your opponent doesn't politely wait for you to get ready to do battle. I've gotten so much hatemail on Dark Souls 1 because I always ganked or stealth backstabbed people the moment that I invaded their game. Even funnier if they actually tried to bow to me and I just nuke them with pyro while they're stuck in animation. It's funny coz in the FGC, it's implicitly understood that you do whatever it takes to win. If it's in the game, you're free to use it. However in the Souls community, it's all about playing 'fair' AKA boring!I only like Nioh for its Ninja Gaiden dna, it even directly uses the dual katana & kusarigama movesets from NGB & NG2. My peev is, I wish we could get more character action games over this soulslike borefest where everything has to be 'fair.' It's already fair, you're a human fighting against a dumb CPU. Cpu can only do what it's programmed to do. A human could always adapt.

MINTYSacriblu posted...Comparing two very different fighters definitely makes sense...Why not? Street Fighter & Tekken get compared all the time and they play nothing like each other.If it were Smash Bros. then that makes sense, since it's clearly a different type of game which should be judged by different criteria. Injustice follows the same exact ruleset set up that was established by Street Fighter 2 so yes it should be compared to Tekken which also follows the same basic SF2 ruleset.What's different is the game design philsophy. NRS has the typical Midway appeal of adding in a lot of fluff that doesn't really matter in the long run but it attracts casuals I guess. Hell, even MKX's Krypt mode attracted a lot of casuals which one of the most annoying modes for me because I just wanted it to be like the old school Krypt where I just unlocked everything through a menu. I ain't got time to wade through some mock-up rpg dungeon Krypt just to spend my MK Koins that I earned through battles.It this rpg hybridrization crap that's killing the entire action genre, not just fighting.FPS was hit by the rpg nonsense with COD's mp. Devil May Cry & Ninja Gaiden are dead now because of the much easier Dark SoulsBorne games taking over as the "HARD" action games when they're actually just play it at your own pace easymode action games.Now we have fighters where the last thing the fans seem to want is the actual fighting. They want more rpg & story mode crap where the writing reads like an aborted straight to dvd movie script LOL!

Because we currently live in an entitled era whe-No. Legitimate complaints do not = being entitled. I suppose all of those justified complaints about Street Fighter V and Soul Calibur V were by entitled people?

Fighting games need to look at injustice 2 to see what content is.

Marvel vs capcom infinite got revealed and everyone is shitting on it. Between this game and SFV theres alot of people particularly angry at capcom, for some reason...
In not crazy over the MVC games in general but this one seems to play better than the previous one.
lots of people are angry over the initial roster because there many returning characters from MVC3.I wouldnt worry because they are directly recycled from the previous games, so they are not spending to much time on those so they can work on new ones to come.
Also the new DBZ game by the guilty gear team.

Based off of what? MvCI uses Mortal Kombat style double tap input
motions and all sorts of other dumb shit to simplify a game that was
already simple to begin with.

Disney also decides which capcom characters get in the game?
