      SEGA wasn't joking about the "Absorb Netcode". US East Coast to the UK seems super playable. They couldn't even tell the delay. The game is looking AMAZING, the most beautiful 3D fighter period!! :D:D

      This is the best stream to watch so far. They are playing on the PS5 with lots of high-level players in the lobby.

      Guys, I'm super happy for VF. Thank you, SEGA!! :LOL:


      PS: Please make sure to check out the VOD if you missed this stream. It's definitely worth your time if you are new and interested in VF5 Ultimate Showdown.

      On the brightside you will have plenty of time to think upon your response because this game is going to be deader than disco in T minus three months time.

      The new designs make the characters look like dry clay. Those pictures of Jacky and jean look like they got tons of plastic surgery. Jean unfortunately doesn't look as cool any more, he looks constipated. I prefer the original, the skin looks more natural and less uncanny valley.

      It's personal preference for sure, but then vast majority think the models look better in US than in the versions before.

      I think it's their eyes. Most of the characters have dark areas around the eyes, makes them look deprived of sleep

      I do like Jacky's strands of hair on his new design

      Akira definitely looks much better in this game than in the screens.

      Suzuki is a genius but I'm uncomfortable with folks pushing the idea that his sheeïtt don't stink. Come on guys, some things are not great, if not for everyone, it's the strong majority of people. Shenmue 3 is a stan game, it's not for fans (of the originals) or gamers in general.

      I know the stans dig shenmue 3, more power to them, but be honest folks.

      Who is this clown? If we were to just follow " the majority" , the majority of gamers play Street Fighter V over VF. You really sound ignorant using the "majority" as your crutch. As for the "Stan" comment, thats just you projecting your homo-erotic point of view so into everything. It's not 2001, still making Eminem references.

      You can't modernize every genre of game and keep its integrity. Look at Ultimate Showdown. If Sega modernized , ie dumbed down the franchise any further, it would have lost too much depth and replayability. Basing this fighting mechanics on Final Showdown and giving us new graphics was the best compromise we could get.
