It's not bad. It wants you to buy the season pass, but there's still plenty to do without it, plus the create a character mode and Libra Of Souls mode campaign is nice. If you enjoy the SoulCalibur games it's well worth a look. It's better than 5, but not as good as 2. Mind you that can probably be said about all of the ones that aren't 5 and 2.

Tekken 7 is good, but a lot of fighters have started doing the seasons stuff since it worked for Street Fighter 5. I can see the (non moneymaking) logic behind it as a way to keep the game fresh by introducing new characters over time, and not overwhelming new players early on with too much choice, but it's not long since all you used to have to do to unlock extra characters in a fighting game was finish the arcade ladder with a different character. 

I don't know whether Dragon Ball FighterZ is on there, but that's got a nice big story mode where you play through what I assume is truncated versions of the sagas from the show and unlock characters to play and buffs etc in the way through. Certainly one of the most RPG like story modes I've seen in a fighting game. I've not watched anywhere near as much Dragon Ball Z as I should have. If you're a fan of the Marvel Vs Capcom games it's well worth a look.

The Power Rangers game is surprisingly decent and has a decent MK/Injustice style story mode. Although again it seems to want you to buy the season pass. It's very similar to KOF14, I assume DB Fighters is similar?

I'm gonna pretty much blitz all the fighters on there. Might give Killer Instinct a pop, since the complete version is on.

Killer instinct is very good.

Power Rangers is better than it has any right to be given the budget it was made on. It's a lot of fun.

This looks like it could be interesting. Free to play, all characters unlocked, all single player and local modes unlocked. Online against friends. You just have to pay for cosmetics, and ranked online modes etc. Still, for free it might kot be too bad. It's on PS4, XBox One and Switch. Interesting mechanics as well.

All the fighting game companies are having a "roundtable" event this weekend with announcements and trailers etc. My guess is that this has been organised following the cancellation of EVO following the allegations against the CEO and several members of the fighting game community. 

From the look of the article they're predicting it's going to have announcements for Street Fighter V season 5, a new season for Tekken 7, the rest of the second season of SoulCalibur VI, the new netcode for FEXL, more Guilty Gear and more. I'm hoping there'll be some information about King Of Fighters XV and the Breakers collection that's supposed to be on the way. The events are happening at 10pm Friday night and 1am Saturdaynight/Sunday morning.

Got an afternoon to myself, so thought I'd break out MK11 to see if I can finally get through the bloody tutorials. I've only got two trophies left until I have the platinum. 

The advanced tutorials are an absolute nightmare. Finally managed to knock two of them off, then went to the menu to see what I have left. Then found out the two I've done - spent a solid half an hour of button mashing, trying to get the combo down to the exact frame rate for timing - haven't saved. So, so annoying!

I picked up MK11 the other day. I'm slowly cracking through the tutorials, some of them look like they get pretty detailed. 

The Capcom announcement last week was an interesting one. Some new balance tweaks and apparently mechanics are being released, and 4 of the 5 season 5 characters have been announced as Dan (yay, my main is back), Rose, Akira from Rival Schools, and Oro. Character 5 hasn't been announced yet, but it looks like they're at least a year away from dropping. People are wondering whether it'll be a new character, another crossover character or another returnee. 

Also interesting is that after almost thirty years, and having practically become known as "Mr Street Fighter" Yoshinori Ono announced at the weekend that he's leaving Capcom. Rumours are that he either didn't like the direction Capcom were taking Street Fighter 6 in, or that Capcom weren't thrilled by what he was trying to do with Street Fighter 6. Although in his announcement he said a lot about the format of this year's Capcom Pro Tour. It's the end of an era for Capcom and Street Fighter, but also the dawn of a new age. It'll be interesting to see where Ono goes from here. I'd be hyped if he showed up alongside Harada at BamCo, or even ended up on a smaller game like FEXL. Time will tell, I guess. 

The roundtable had some cool announcements. Tekken 7 Season 4 is on the way, but nobody has been announced. Leo is coming to Guilty Gear StrIVe, Setsuka is coming to SoulCalibur 6, and FEXL is getting rollback netcode. 

Street Fighter League is back soon as well, and because of the way all Capcom's events have been taking place online since Covid happened it looks like it's going to be online, and a global thing. Finals will take place at Capcom Cup, which looks like it's been moved back to the start of next year in the hope that people can travel again. 

Anyway, I've been me and that's your UKFF FGC update, film at 11.
