Major Street Fighter V Capcom Fighters Network Update Incoming

Capcom has announced, on its Capcom Unity blog, that it will soon be bringing a long-promised major update to its Capcom Fighters Network system for Street Fighter V. The announcement states that the update will bring a slew of improvements to the Street Fighter V’s online experience, something that has been one of the most criticized aspects of the game. According to the announcement, one of the first changes that will come with the update is an improved Rage Quit Penalty System. Special icons that show whether a player is an “honorable” opponent or is notorious for rage quitting will now correctly appear. The updated system will now also take into account one’s online behavior including frequent disconnections to match players accordingly. The update will also greatly reduce the time it takes to find an online match as well as the loading times for entering Ranked and Casual matches. Matchmaking has also been improved so that same players won’t be matched with each other repeatedly. Several quality of life improvements will also be introduced with the new update including training mode user settings now being saved, properly displayed country flags in the Battle Lounge, country or league based ranking READ…

Never-Before-Seen Street Fighter II Combos Discovered After 26 years

Street Fighter II is the father of all modern fighting games. If it wasn’t for Street Fighter II, the fighting game genre as we know today wouldn’t exist. You would think a classic game like this has been dissected every way imaginable by the fighting game community. However, someone has discovered combos for SFII that haven’t been seen before. These combos were unearthed by Desk, who is “the world’s greatest fighting game combo technician” (according to EuroGamer). The combos are technically not supposed to be possible. However, thanks to a glitch that has been in SFII since the beginning, they are indeed possible. In the game, once you knock down an opponent with a sweep, you aren’t supposed to be able to follow up with a combo. Other Capcom fighting games let you do this, but not SFII. As you can see in the video below, Desk is doing combos after sweeping. This is because of the glitch, but it isn’t universal to every character in the game. [embedded content] This on the ground (OTG) glitch can only be done on Vega. Desk credits Japanese fighting game player TZW with first performing this glitch “back in the days when combo…

Capcom looking into porting Resident Evil’s engine to Switch

The Game Creators Conference was a few weeks ago in Japan and Nintendo and Capcom held a joint session about the Nintendo Switch. Now a new GamesIndustry Japan article has been posted that offers some follow-up information on that panel and how the Nintendo Switch was developed.Apparently, Capcom asked Nintendo to increase the main memory available for the console. Nintendo first presented a figure that was in-line with hardware of the time, but Capcom argued that it wouldn’t be sufficient to run something like the company’s new RE engine. Other developers chimed in on the memory capacity of the Switch as well, so Nintendo had to strike a balance between more memory and cost efficiency while getting the console ready for launch.Another tidbit from the article has revealed that Capcom is looking into porting their RE engine to Switch by optimizing it to operate while in a low power state. The game has to be able to run in both docked and portable and while Capcom says it will be a challenge, they “would like to put in the effort to achieve it.”[Source / Via]Resident Evil 7 for PS4 – $56.00 READ FULL STORY AT NINTENDOTODAY!

Street Fighter V Invitational Match Ends With A Different Kind Of Comeback

A tense Street Fighter V bout at the SXSW Fighters Underground invitational in Austin, Texas last Thursday showcased one of the game’s most compelling mechanics. Advertisement American competitor Ryan “Filipino Champ” Ramirez and Fu-pin “RB” Kao from Taiwan fought tooth and nail for a much-needed group stage victory in the final game of their first-to-three set in which “white health” played a pivotal role. Unlike previous games, special attacks in Street Fighter V don’t deal chip damage, or the minuscule amount of damage dealt on block. Instead, a handful of attacks deplete a type of provisional health known as white or gray health. This damage slowly regenerates after a short period of time, but you can prevent this by forcing your opponent to block subsequent blows. Once you’re able to get a clean hit, the entirety of that white health is removed along with the attack’s normal damage. In this way, relatively weak attacks can become haymakers. Advertisement One round away from walking away with the win, Ramirez whittled down Kao’s health with Dhalsim’s frustratingly long limbs. This smothering pressure forced Kao’s Urien READ FULL STORY AT KOTAKU!
