Harada and Michael Murray talked about this a little bit during their S4 stream for Tekken, basic gist being that perfect balance is boring and instead they want to try to focus on making each character feel strong in different ways. As long as they do something about the obvious recent power creep with the new chars and moves I’ll be happy

Bunged Sega GT in as Laptop sort of likes it, just has some sound Glitches but given younger stuff wont run on 10 at all I'm not that bothered.
Managed all but 2 of the License tests to get the Race cars, The E license Daihatsu on Snowy mountain as you have to get it pin point perfect to get the time despite being on of the first things you drive and the Clio V6 as it handles like a greased turd, I've managed them before so not impossible.

Zero Tolerence on Mega Drive
Its still good, despite its flaws (Its like Wolfenstein rather than DOOM).
The radar at the bottom is really needed as enemies can be heard before they are seen, I wish it had a sprint button and that it used the six button controllers other buttons for thing select.

Super Mario 35 - thought it would be a novelty, but I actually really like it. The enemy heavy levels can get really hectic and fun.

Duke Nukem 3D - in some case it's aged badly, but it's still as fun as ever. The level designs were immense for the time and much better than Doom in some cases.

Shocking how much more fun the MD version is compared to what the SNES got imho

More Genshin Impact for me, unlocked the co op so ran some domains with randos. I was expecting some hitches seeing as it’s crossplay with phones and PC but it actually felt pretty smooth

Banging my head against Spelunky 2 but in a good way, feels so great when RNGesus blesses you and you get good shops and items

Nah, not really. If you want to mess around and run domains for mats there may be an advantage. There always seemed to be at least one massively overpowered whale in every group I joined, lol

Seriously, though, this game has massively satisfied my BotW itch without the weapon degradation bs. Finding synergies between your characters to get combos going is really fun

Bums of the Waifu's.....................
It seems like on PS4 online gubbins is free.

Trying to unlock more charters without actually having to pay seems like a bit of a prig. I need more bow types
It is also not miles of nothing, thats one thing that bugs me about a lot of open world games, traveling to new places or old isnt a prig, a fair bit of climbing.
Did seem to get an enemy that seems a bit over powered for me to tackle (The wolf thing and a flower, both ice types).

Ive had to stop my self from playing it as its a bit of a time sync

Urgh Tekken, even that is boring to watch, slightly more interesting but still
A lot of these modern fighting games all feel like crap
I enjoy watching older stuff more as its less flashy stuff, explosions and cutscene supers
Dont get me started on "Anime fighters" like Guilty gear/Melty blood/Dragonball memorise a long string of button presses to win

Still
Sega are doing a thing

Super excited to find out what this is. Been playing Final Showdown since it released on consoles, still have regular offline meetups with friends now.
I'm hoping whatever this is, it includes a port of Virtua Fighter 5: Final Showdown to modern hardware!

Either way, I've been playing a lot of Legend of Oasis/Story of Thor 2 on Sega Saturn lately. Loved the Mega Drive game and I'm really enjoying the sequel. The graphics are beautiful! I feel like the puzzles are a little tougher in this one, but the game also feels a lot larger usually without being overwhelming. The Forest level did get me lost a couple of times, but I'm back on track now.

From what ive heard it has a decent community that want more people to join in.
Its also a great game to watch as unlike a lot of fighting games its not a cluster fudge of sparks and bs
