As a HUGE HUGE fan of the series since its 3D debut, I gotta say, I have really zero reaction to this video, aside from absolutely HATING Ryu's voice.

And it's better this way, believe me. Probably one of the worst brawlers I've ever played. I can say absolutely no positive thing about it. Everything about the fighting engine sucks (timing, counter system, hitboxes, hitstun, feedback of attacks, visual cues etc. - oh and don't expect it to play anything like NG. has nothing to do with it gameplay wise), the locations are bland and repetitive as are the enemies. Story, characters and dialogues are painfully stupid and try so hard with their toilet humour that you get annoyed really fast by it. I'm amazed that anyone could approve and release something like this in it's actual state.

Warning, this is game is 3hours long with cutscenes, it's not worth $60, (Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 was 10h+) and the game design in Yaiba is not good, few variety in enemies, and only 3 bosses in the whole game, so cheap, and for people who hate hard games like me, this is hard on easy, I regret buying it, never again, please reviewers don't give this game more than 3/10, I give it 0/10 seriously.

    asdfg I liked Geoffs speech. For once something actually felt real at the otherwise so corporate TGA. (7 minutes ago)

    KORNdog @Moonwalker: as i said, they're friends. not just "we see each other once ever 5 years at an award show" "friends". but actual friends. things were obviously going to be personal. (1 Hour ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @KORNdog: Nothing with calling the company out but we had that last year already. And showing Hideo respect is cool but I thought this was way too much. (1 Hour ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog back to geoff though, i honestly appreciated seeing some emotion come from those cold, dead mountain dew sponsored eyes. the guy is a lifeless husk most of the time. (1 Hour ago)

    KORNdog "Dreamfall Chapters will launch for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One both physically and digitally for $29.99 / €29,99 / £24,99 via publisher Deep Silver on March 24, 2017" finally! (2 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Moonwalker: i think they've been friends for years. when you have a stage, why not use it to call out a company and their BS? (2 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @Tiz: Agreed. (2 Hours ago)
