Sega did announce a Virtua Fighter eSports initiative at TGS last fall. If they're pinning their hopes on this and not a new game, they're probably toast out of the gate. No PC release and no rollback netcode means they're going to have an uphill battle growing their community, for a franchise which has never really built a scene outside Asia to begin with.

Humble is doing a Guilty Gear Bundle that gets you pretty much every GG title/DLC on Steam for ten bucks.

Yeah this rerelease was honestly all we could hope for. I'm glad to be able to play it on PS4, more importantly the apparent full facelift is more than I expected. I think everyone was waiting for them to announce a straight dump of the old digital VF5FS onto the current console.

It looks like they have put a decent amount of work into it, now to find out if said work has actually been worthwhile. I'm super glad it's less than a week away.


Man I can't even recognize Sarah's face anymore. Not really liking the facelift lol

Have you seen the gameplay vids posted since the reveal event this morning? It looks MINT. Like a full-on current gen game, not a remaster.

even more than before.. this is much more than I hoped for, and I couldn't be happier. :D

I've only had a few goes, but Fighting Layer Ex seems pretty neat. Not that I'll ever be hardcore into a fighter every again I don't think, but this is top of the pile if I get the urge.

I recommend taking another look. They put out a comparison trailer, they redid all the character models & stages, some of the changes are pretty dramatic:

I've seen it and the new graphics engine looks off. Again that's just my opinion but with the changes to me it just looks like it got a botched face lift :x

I'm still going to play it lol
This is the a good step forward for Virtua Fighter though

Anyone want the code for Accent Core +R? I already had that one.

Don't worry, Sega's got you:

From the new DLC shown, looks like $9.99 for all the arcade costume/customization options, every VF song ever, classic stages + model 1 character models for every character:

If only the game included some decent netcode, instead of that shit that """absorbs""" the delay

Also, LMAO i just read the damage in Strive is stupid because they were planning to make the game tag-based.

Not defending Sega, but early impressions of the online are a lot better than expected given this decision.

The game is up for purchase at $30.

Shame about no rollback huh. I've not experienced online anywhere near as good as +R has now, for any other fighter i've played.

Yo Mortificator i'll have that code if you can't find a good home for it, got a mate with a passing interest. Although i have a feeling he'll play a couple weeks then drop it.

Also maybe we can go a few rounds sometime :twisted:

I'm starting to warm up to the graphics
I bought the DLC :mrgreen:

I really don't care what it looks like now I just am happy there's an update!

Sega's Netcode had always been very good back in the days
I can play Virtua Fighter 5, 2, Fighting Vipers all with friends half way across the world without major issues

Its probably not good enough for Tourney play but it worked really well casually

Got Strive running on my potato PC but it's a bit shaky. two of the stages are unplayable for me.

I don't know if this is a specs problem on my end but i tried playing a friend online and just had 0 fun. I don't get it, something feels off.
what am I missing here, people talk like it's the second coming of christ.

Not sure how I would test it. buy a new graphics card for this one game? Double dip and buy on ps4, which i don't have a stick for? fuck sake.

A modder called FGCdraft recently released a potato PC low spec mod that should help you get Strive running better and see how it feels at 60 fps.

..I already bought a better gfx card :mrgreen:

It'd be more convenient to play on ps4 but all my homies play on PC.

Also jst checked the vid: there's no bloody way I'd play the game in that state. You could just play +R on a potato PC and have a much better time than trying to live in that nightmare.
Sorry, I appreciate the gesture tho!

Lol I think in the video he's just scaling down the graphics to the extreme to show what's possible on a super slow PC. He had the game looking like it's running on a Neo Geo Pocket Color. No doubt for people whose potatoes are a little closer to recommended specs they can get much better results with the mod.

Best way to play Strive is not playing it at all.

And yeah, i hate this overhyped crappy game for killing all interest in +R.

The +R discord is still pretty busy and i can still get ranked matches depending on the time of day; altho I don’t play very much lately.

I did take advantage of the one time i’ll ever be more practiced at a fighter than Squire and beat his ass. The only chance i’ll ever get :lol:, he hadn’t played in years!
No one tell him!

Edit: I can't believe everyone likes this soundtrack so much

there's some bangers for sure but I wonder is it just ESLs that like the singing? because my English ears are being violated by some of these tracks.

Potemkin's theme, great as it is: has this for a chorus.

"I'm a fool,
I know nothing
I take the role of a silly clown."

It's hard to explain just what irks me about this. Lyrically, it falls flat. Like a highschooler wrote it.
That's my big gamer opinion.

Pretty excited for Melty Type Lumina, releasing it worldwide also on steam with rollback was win/win
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v4cvNNB65uM

btw, fell free to add me on steam if any of you guys want some +R, 2002UM, BBCF, UNIB or AH3EX matches.

EDIT: Aww hell yeah, that's the one. Ta @ Fighters Generation, he always keeps the good stuff on hand.

Are fighting games even fun anymore? I am kind of burnt out on them. The last decent one was ultimate mvc3. SF5 was just meh. Guilty Gear is too weird looking for me. And MK is just violence crap. Tekken is a sort of joke. Virtual Fighter is good but technical and requires lots of practice.
