So ... Street Fighter V

Yeah, yeah, the biggest news is, unfortunately, the rough start to the beta. Most people haven't been able to get on for the last 3 days or so. There's already memes about PRESS ANY BUTTON and Error Code 21007.

That out of the way, Saturday evening was when I was able to get my first really consistent extended time in the beta, and I'm at least happy to report that the game is looking like it'll be way, waaaaaaaaaay the hell better than IV ever was. The thing that stuck out at me was just how little bullshit V is shaping up to have. V-skill, V-counter, V-trigger is so much more satisfying of a system than Ultras and blends in so well with the neutral game making a triumphant return to emphasis. I always thought IV's Focus Attacks felt tacked on and muddled the classic SF neutral game, so I'm very glad to see those gone in V. Also loving the de-emphasis on knockdown/vortex as a whole.

Hopefully future betas won't have the server problems that are now infamous. (And hey, could be worse, could've been on the release of the actual game, right Blizzard? Eh Ubisoft?) But the actual game, or what we have of it right now, is definitely worth the repeated PRESS ANY BUTTONS.

Anyone else get to play a decent amount in the beta yet?

I'm just glad that the frame links are supposed to be way more forgiving now.

And they are. Took me a while to get used to it, but doing combos with Cammy for example, you basically push the buttons in quick succession instead of having to meticulously time each press. So much better. It's a lot closer to Super Turbo links, or linking Jabs and Shorts in Third Strike.

Also, the first full beta (as in, what was supposed to be this week before PRESS ANY BUTTON) will now happen at a later date. There will still be three full beta periods after this one was cut short. Seeing as how I was lucky enough to get decent playing time this go, this'll be like four beta rounds total for me, so woo.

North/South America stress test is tomorrow and Wednesday, 7 p.m.-3 a.m. Eastern (4 p.m.-midnight Pacific). Which means the beta is open during that time, but at the same time is not the full first beta.

Laura's the first character in this game that I think looks cool. I'm finally kinda excited for it.

I'm excited for it because the game is way the fuck better than IV, even during the beta.

I love Laura's design and how her playstyle looks. And that she's Sean's older sister.

Still sad there's no Akuma yet.

As I've mentioned before, my theory on Akuma is that they're going to keep him "secret" because he'll be a hidden boss.

And even if that's not the case, he'll likely be one of the first DLC characters. He's simply too popular not to make an appearance at some point.

EDIT: There's rumors now that Dhalsim is the final initial returning character. God, I hope that isn't true.

Someone ripped all the character themes from the recent beta! (Other than Rashid and R. Mika, who aren't available yet.)



Most of them are pretty great. Special mentions to Ken's, Nash's, Karin's, Vega's and Necalli's.

The only one I don't care for in its entirety is Bison's. Then there's the case of Cammy's, which has an unfortunate awful intro but then becomes awesome after it.

Final Beta starts tomorrow (tonight-ish) at 3 a.m. Eastern/Midnight Pacific. Schedule here.

But basically, if you're trying to catch Star Wars during maintenance period so you can maximize SFV beta time (assuming Eastern TIme), your best bet is to catch it either Friday afternoon or early evening, or LATE Saturday night. Not at all on Sunday.
