I just rage quit my last -- and final -- ranked match in King of Fighters 12.
I'm not angry with the opponent, though. I'm angry -- no, furious -- over the atrocious lag. Horrible latency issues complicate and exacerbate the online experience to a point where games are unplayable, unbearable, and unwelcome. Playing in such awful conditions will test your temperament, and your patience with SNK Playmore's handling of KOF12's transition from the arcade to the console. SNK touts KOF12 as the rebirth of a franchise, a reinterpretation of the entire series from new character designs to new gameplay mechanics. But will fans accept these changes?"
