    Who's playing this game? Thoughts on it?
    I'm quite enjoying it so far, particularly as it seems to have a different style to most (all?) of the other fighting games coming out lately.

    I just wish it was on PC, but happy to stick to playing at events/local meetups for now.

    This game is sick. I'm double dipping whenever the Switch port comes.

    Can someone confirm when you dodge a throw does it leave you both recovering to even (0) or does the dodger get guaranteed follow up?

    Haven't played it yet though. But I have been watching, the YoVideogames crew, play it these days.

    Cant confirm but it feels like both players are left at neutral after you dodge their throw attempt. Nothing guaranteed after that. It has pretty limited use imo.

    I'm currently using Earthquake, but I really enjoyed playing around with Kyoshiro as well. He seems quite slow and cumbersome, but has some potential with keep away.
    Not sure how you're supposed to use his frog move though.

    I just got my copy this morning, and have only messed around in training mode and online matches. I actually really enjoy how slow-paced and footsies-based this game is. Reminds me of Koihime Enbu quite a bit (minus the assists).

    Currently using Shiki, but will probably try out Charlotte and Nakoruru soon.

    Also since it's like 9am where I am, I've only got some matches in with players from Japan and Korea. The netcode seems pretty decent since I'm getting at least 2 bar connections with them (probably because I'm west coast and on ethernet).

    Before the game came out, I didn't like how the graphics looked; but now that I have it it honestly looks pretty good. Also the Mikatagahara Fields stage is beautiful.

    This is probably the only 2d fighter I'll actually stick with for a while, at least out of what has recently been released.

    Have you been able to beat the Boss Shizuka with EQ? I heard its hard to deal with her fan attacks since they appear behind his avatar since he takes up so much screen space. I had a lot of trouble beating her the first time with Ukyo. But the second time around it took me 4 tries.

    I really think this is the most fun boss fight in a fighting game that I can remember.

    Man I dropped Smash and MK11 like a bad habit since Samsho came out. I was playing Smash for hours everyday but I feel like there's too much too many variables and matchups to get really good. This game feels just right and fair (except Genjuro *cough*). Hopefully people stick around for this one for a long time.

    Honestly, I haven't played the single player yet, since I only get to play the game at meetups. I don't have a PS4 yet :x

    I find Earthquake is pretty good for vs at least, I just need an answer for opponent jumping in on me.

    It seems that air-to-air is your best bet, his grounded normals don't cover the air very much.

    I wasn't aware how much ata is in this game, I would've thought some crouching normals would help cover the space.

    More people should play Ukyo

    I dropped Shiki and Charlotte to play Ukyo; he's a cool character. I haven't run into another Ukyo online yet, for the most part just Yoshitora

    Yeah at my locals there was a lot of Yoshitora as well, everyone wants to hit seventh sword. Ukyo is a great pick though, I think he's one of those characters where he just can't be bad. Wish he still had his 5AB from V Special though, I want to take half health at half screen

    It's estimated to be winter for the Nintendo Switch version, so I'll wait for it. I have to face the reality that I have limited options from only having a Switch. Time to move on from retro sadly (keeping Weaponlord and few others though).
