I actually wish Gundam Side Stories would come out in the US if only for a remastered version of Zeonic Front. That was a great little underrated PS2 game

According to news that came out yesterday, the PS3 and PS4 versions of Guilty Gear Xrd will have online cross-play between the platforms and at least one new character for the home version.

The real shame is that they did not include Order Sol in Xrd. Looks like we will have to wait until Guilty Gear Xrd: ampersand Q batman symbol for him!

I was kind of disappointed by the first Touch Detective game. The creepy, blank-eyed character design is calling out for a bizarre, slightly unsettling atmosphere to match, but it feels more like a normal kid's cartoon or something.

well i will definitely take GG XRD over the waste of time and money that is USFIV. they should have left well enough alone with SSFIVAE.

no way anyone is gonna pay $39.99 just to get new characters. sure i would have been fine with the previous 4 considering they were insanely popular in SF X TK , but SERIOUSLY? A FREAKING CAMMY CLONE AS THE 5TH?


i mean come on now. i would have been satisfied if it was reserved for a console exclusive, or better yet they could have allowed popular Alpha characters like Charile , Karin or Rainbow Mika for the final slot or even one of the popular characters from the EX series or even the rival schools series since it sort of tie in to the SF universe. but the resort to a clone which means their seriously getting desperate on milking this series as much as they can.

worse all of that for just $40 bucks? if it was 20 then some would manage but 40 is mainly the price for a new game.

bit of advice. save that money for GG XRD instead.

Man the irony in that post is so delicious.

You're going to buy a game that a year from now will have a $40+ expansion. Then a year after that will have another one and so on.

You say this while ignorantly slamming SF for the same thing except its expansions are probably even more spaced out and don't have DLC characters on top of the expansions like Blaz Blue.

It's also only $40 for the physical. Super and Arcade can be updated to Ultra for $15.

It's also you're loss, but at least stop being ignorant. Decrape does not play anything like Cammy and is an exclent character with cool zoneing abilities. Pretty much all of the other new characters have been great.

SF4 has a huge lively community and updates that bring new life into that game are not a waste of time for people who actually care about the game. This is like complaining about WoW reciving expansions. SF is not a release and that's it game, not for the actual SF scene. You obviously aren't a part of it.

actually i do. i currently play SSFIVAE. if this expansion was like 20 i would have considered it , but definitely not the price for a new game.

also like many people we buy the physical disks and not the digital downloads so that price for 15 is also debunked for those that dont have the DD.

its as i said , it better off to save that money for the GGXrd game or the next Blaze Blue game instead of wasting it on another SF update. it should have ended with arcade edition.

The price of a new game is $50 or $60. Ultra is not the price of a new game. It is the price of pretty much every re-release or expansion this gen. There is nothing crazy about it's price for the physical edition, which is meant for people who have no version of the game already.

So you pay the premium and normal price for the disk. Or you can stop complaining and buy the digital version for far cheaper. You already have a physical edition of the game. Capcom gave you options and at no point was un-fair.

That also will release plenty of expansions at $40+

Quote:
the next Blaze Blue game
That releases $40+ expansions(without dlc options) and then asks you to spend more money on the dlc characters that are part of the expansion, but withheld.

Well then I kind of doubt you are really into SF if you think this. Ultra brings much needed fixes to the game. And also adds some pretty awesome games. There's a reason the actual community is really loving it.
