How can a fighting game look outdated when it is by far the best looking fighting game?

Flewid63897d ago

Thats how far behind fighting games are.

Magatsuhi97d ago (Edited 97d ago )

Oh idk, maybe because it's reusing the same assets from the first game in 1994?

That's 30yrs if you haven't realized.

its 2024 and we cant get better looking models, its 2024 and we cant get backrounds that look realistic. theres no excuse for this garbage

Played the demo on PS5. Wasn't impressed. It's not bad per se, it's just...meh.

Mind you, I think I'm falling out of love with fighting games these days because SF6 and MK1 didn't grab me either.

monkey60298d ago

I was very unimpressed with the demo. I did only try it briefly and I think I opted in to some control scheme that had practically made the game play itself. I keep saying I'll try it again with a classic control scheme but I'm just not interested.
I also skipped MK1. I got tired of NetherRealms milking DLC and later releasing Komplete Kollections for a small fraction of the price.

KyRo97d ago

This applies to most fighting games now. I refuse to buy any until the complete edition drops. I'm old enough to remember playing to unlock new fighters, not charged silly prices for a fighter and some costumes. Tekken 7s DLCs, Season passes were out of hand.

Barlos97d ago

I don't know what it is, I just couldn't get into it. Yes it looked nice but that's about it, it was just boring to play for me.

As for MK1 - I also played the demo of this as I had originally had it pre ordered, but as soon as I played the demo I cancelled it and I'm glad I did. I didn't like the Kameo mechanic, actually I thought it was a cop out that about a third of the roster wasn't even playable because they were cameos. I didn't like the slower combat and I didn't like the lack of any meaningful modes outside the story mode. I also agree, NetherRealm are really taking the piss with the amount of DLC content they expect you to buy. If I pay £70 for a game I expect it to be complete, I don't expect to pay almost that amount again for content that should have been included in the first place. I used to love MK but I'm not supporting this type of model any more.

This is gonna be so dope, Tekken rules.


Monetization in Gaming Is Getting Insane

Trevor Walker said: Well, here we are again. Every time I think I’ve said all I have to say about this topic, another studio falls into the same cycle. Monetization in video games seems to be getting more and more out of hand. If you’ve played any AAA title in the last 6 years, you’ve surely seen it. Battle passes, exclusive skins, and sometimes pay to win features have spread throughout the gaming industry like a plague, and we need a cure. Badly. I never thought I’d see the day, but the first game that comes to mind is one that holds a special place in my heart.

You need a cure. Here it is:

1. Don’t buy the game.
2. Don’t just not buy the game, announce it!

Announce on every social media/chat/discourse/streaming … platform available & imaginable that you will not buy the game that is coming out & state the reason that we all know. Then advise others to do the same.

Once you’ve announced it, announce it again for the next game by the same dev that you will not buy their future product either, because of their past dealings with consumers.

3. See 1.


I don't sub to anything digital, games, movies, TV shows, etc. I just take what I want for PC for the unbeatable price of $0.00 🤣 But I sometimes buy the occasional game, but as for the others I mentioned yeah ok, haha paying for a streaming service to watch shows, movies, etc man GTFO lol

I know many people who don’t buy MTs or support gaas. But unfortunately there are just as many people that I know who do and they don’t care about it. Companies won’t stop doing it until the vast majority don’t buy anything. Some GaaS do it better than others but most are looking to make as much MT money as they can get away with and there’s too many who don’t mind it at all

Reviewers can prioritize monetization schemes in their reviews and give companies low scores based on severity.

Chocoburger3d ago

This is one of the reasons why I've been focusing more on older games from PS3 & X360 all the way back to the NES.
Rarely can a modern big budget game garner my attention, because its just the same stale concept over and over again. Open world, busy work, grinding, where your job is literally to be a trash collector (constantly picking up endless resources off the ground), the entire industry has been copying Ubi-junk, and I'm just not interested.

Add in the fact that games are clearly releasing in beta form (sometimes very early beta form!), then there's randomized gear you have to pick up and upgrade, then all those boring skill trees to fill in, which is the laziest form of fake game progression imaginable.

Then there's the nasty business model of paying an extra $20 just to play an unfinished game 3 days early. Disgusting behavior, and anyone who supports those companies are actively making our industry worse.

The game industry has never been perfect, but its also never been this bad either.


Tekken 8 Mods Website Receives Infringement Notice From Bandai Namco

A popular Tekken 8 mods website has received a notice of infringement from Bandai Namco, but they're fighting back for the players.

Terry_B5d ago

What Namco is doing here totally sucks.

H95d ago

Namco is even attacking Tekken 7 mod videos

PRIMORDUS5d ago (Edited 5d ago )

I torrented the game on PC, and now will post the link right on their twitter account ripping them a new asshole and then say now you can't do shit LOL. Leave modders alone. Sooner or later the way the industry is going I will not buy anything anymore, and just take what I want. I'm buying very little now, as it is. The future does not look good at all.

KwietStorm_BLM5d ago

Daaamn they won't know what to do with themselves


Nope LOL. The game industry is going to get worse before it gets better. Actually I don't even think it will get better which is the sad part. Even if Bandai does not see that link, by me posting it I can influence people who don't know much about torrenting can now maybe get interested and learn about it. 😁

DivineHand1254d ago

Don't do anything to put yourself at risk.


But I do this often, 😁 I'm sure companies must be pissed because they know they are helpless with taking down torrents, and maybe I can teach some people how to do it by posting links, they might take an interest LOL

KwietStorm_BLM3d ago

Oh you thought I was being serious. My apologies.
