Fighting Games

10 posts in this topic

Hello Behemoth Community, I'm going to create a more open discussion because honestly, we arent active enough now days to talk specifics. I want to talk about fighting games as a whole! Have you been playing any good ones? What are some of your favorites?

 

Currently I've been playing a lot of Under Night, the game is amazingly fun and the characters feel so fresh. I hear there's a problem with the top tier characters being a fair bit overpowered but that's every fighting game pretty much. Byakuya is by far my favorite character to play, his interesting twist on traps and rushdown is just super fun and effective.

 

Btw I'm always looking for others to play fighting games with, so feel free to add me on Discord, Steam, PSN, Xbox Live, all under: FlamingPaperCup

ive been looking into going back into sf4, but the matchmaking is usually empty

I've heard Ultra SFIV on Steam is still fairly active (and when it's on sale you can get it cheap), but most of the playerbase has moved over to SFV. SFV is the superior game imo, and with the game's recent updates it finally feels like a complete package. The story mode, trials mode, improved matchmaking and (mostly) free DLC have added a decent amount to the bare minimum that was offered at release.

I play a bunch of fighting games, but right now I can only play those I have on Steam online...because I'm too stingy to pay for PS+ right now. So if you want to play MK9/X, Injustice, Skullgirls or KOF13, just message me. :-)

too bad i play xbox eh?

I'm sure there are still players on Xbox too. If not you can always ask around on the SF reddit for a sparring partner. Those guys love SF.

 

Also in this thread we should talk about fightsticks. Anyone here thinking of getting one/have one already they want to talk about?

I've been trying to get into fighting games again recently. I know some people super into SoulCalibur so I've been playing V lately. I've been trying to decide if GG Xrd is worth picking up on PC now that Revelator is out.

I've got a Hori RAP VX SA for my 360. I've been thinking about putting a universal PCB in it so I could use it on PS3/4, but the idea of cutting wires and soldering terrifies me.

I've thought about getting a fight stick just to see what they're like, but I'm always fine using a 360 controller. If you guys spot any good ones that aren't super expensive though you gotta share em

Also I think it'd be fun if we arranged some weekly night(s) to play fighting games. I dabble in KoF13 and Skullgirls (and I own USF4) but I'd be down for trying out any games on Steam that other people wanna play

I have an old Hori EX2 that I bought used for £25 years ago. I've been told the parts aren't stellar on it (and switching out the parts isn't worth the hassle with it either), but its still my controller of choice for fighting/arcade/retro games on PC/360. It has good weight and is comfortable enough for lap play, I'd recommend it to people wanting to try out a stick for the first time if you can find one cheap enough.

Damn Bloob those RAP sticks are awesome. I've only done a little soldering in the past with Guitar Hero controllers and it worked out well for a while but only caused more problems in the long run, so I don't think I should be giving advice on modding sticks...although it would save you a lot of money instead of shelling out for a new RAP4. Paying somebody else to mod your current stick might be cheaper too. :-o

The universal PCB I'm looking at costs $90 so it would save me about $60 over buying a second stick, but considering how big they are it's mostly to save space. I've heard Hori sticks are harder to mod than MadCatz and some other brands, though I haven't been able to find anything retaining specifically to my stick.

You might want to look into the Qanba Q1 or Qanba Carbon. if you mostly play PC games. The parts aren't the highest quality, but apparently it's easy enough to mod that you can just replace them with higher quality parts after they break.
