I saw some gameplay vids and it looks nice. To be expect from the same devs as Guilty Gear.

I'm on all in for a good DGZ fighter.

    aphex187 I actually know the guy who made the weapon skins for BF1 (47 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Or just look at some of the garish skins in CS:GO. As far as Battlefield goes? BF1 has some of the best weapon skins I've seen period. (1 Hour ago)

    GriftGFX Lawbreakers is a great example of why you need PLAYERS for cosmetic DLC to work. Look at the prices of fairly shitty looking PUBG loot on the Steam market. That game looks like ass and skins sell (1 Hour ago)

    MrWhite When it comes to online, people want to stand out a bit. It's just how it is, and if wasn't, then loot boxes wouldn't be a thing. (1 Hour ago)

    MrWhite Everyone cares for cosmetics, otherwise you'd have a game that was just Gouraud shaded, or looked like Minecraft. (1 Hour ago)
