Juri Duty Completed

This weekend, I had the pleasure to sit back with Capcoms'' next scrapper for the second time in as many months. Following a brief stint with the flashy fighter at the VSFighting tournament just six weeks ago, Chris Moyse was given the opportunity to spend a solid few hours at a brand new build at the UK trade show.

This time, Juri was a joy to behold.

While im recognizing my desire to beat around the bush a bit, (ok, a lot) when designing games for preview and review, I will look and feel right today and get straight into it: At this stage, is looking and feeling fantastic. What''s more, the primary of my early thoughts about the next sequel is centered around one significant, unquestionable summation:

the more I play it, the more I get the better.

The first part that hit me, in comparison to, was the series'' new sense of pace. - has a broad range of meaning to its characters, which drastically changes both the flow and the momentum of the fight, sacrificing a little of the speed in return for a meatier and more deliberate fighting experience.

Early on, this almost feels like a negative. I was nearly feeling as I was being played as a kid, taken aback by the reduced speed of the fight, the heft of the series shoot star, and sometimes feeling as if I was missing my links because I was too early to gain strength in full effect. Frankly, I regret admitting that, for my first 10 games or so, I felt a legitimate pang of fear a worry that perhaps in an effort to gain momentum, of second-to-second

Like many new friends, you just need to learn more about one another.

Shut Up and Drive

The longer I''ve explored, the more amazed I have become with its shortcomings. Theres no denying that the new Drive Gauge management system is rather overwhelming at first glance overly eager players will be entering burnout before Round 1 has landed its first few black eyes. But it is in the smart use of both the Drive Gauge, the Super Meter, and various new methods that will weave its tapestry of violence.. That''s all there is to this fantastic new fighter.

So you have a tip-top optimized combo down in various situations on an offensive and defensive basis? What if you had a Level 3 Super on deck? What if you have already stretched out? Do you know what you can do with it for the moment? This is what will ask of the player: Can you adapt to the moment and avoid doing flashy 45 percent damage and leave yourself completely meterless for the next 10 seconds? This is what gives s gameplay its variance, and each player a bespoke approach to the fight

As you play more, it begins out as a heavy-hitting, heavy-weighted, but recognizable entry to the canon, and, from there, opening the lid on the new techniques it brings to the party. During my inning with the title at EGX this weekend, I was already pre-prepared for the general feeling, and was now ready to begin delving into its deeper mechanics. And, with my main squeeze Juri on tap, I had a head start.

I discovered that most of the Juris combo routes were all present, and this led me to complete success. However, now there were opportunities for all-new entrances and exits to these routes. I already have the knowledge I already have, alternate openings, early enders, and new ways to extend combos beyond their initial closure. I already have the tools to begin, but it also allows you to adjust to any specific situation at any time. This is the player-to-player variation that the series sorely requires, and it is

Although myself and Ms. J are down 4 lyfe, Nu-Attitude Ken says it.

Black and Blue (and Pink and Green and Violet)

The film is fantastic, with visuals that are more depth and depth than those seen on many of Capcom'' promotional screens. While the stages and character models are all intelligently rendered and beautifully rendered, the devil is truly in the details. Its the hair fringes dancing in the wind; blossoms falling from the skies; dirt was removed from the ground; clothes reacting independently of the wearer; and transitional animation during and after motion.

From Hadokens and Sonic Booms of yesteryear to Kimberlys punchy paint-can grenades and her Day-Glo teleportation clouds, it bleeds dynamism from its pore, bringing power, zest, and purpose to a franchise that has been so bleak due to its recent lack of character.

As an early demo build on gaming laptops was successful from a technical standpoint, though it must be noted that there was a lot of work going on as the weekend progressed, which would play out on-screen in the form of occasional slowdown during the fights more spectacular moments. However, I cant help but wonder how this will be applied onto last-gen platforms.

Capcom wont be forced to cut corners in order to save the striking fighter from a PS4s processor. The RE Engine is pretty malleable, (we got onto the last gen, after all), but when you also take into account the crossplay factor as well as the competitive FGC scene it becomes even more vital that the Gen 8 version of is up to scratch. Because you don''t know a local scene that has ten PS5 setups, do you?

Your Turn Soon

This write-up hardly scratches the surface of my thoughts on at this stage. Some of you will get the chance to check out this build for yourself in a few weeks ahead of ourselves. Importantly, this beta will not only give us our first look at the stability of in an online capacity, but it also will give expert players their first chance to discover the new mechanics via Training Mode. This free rein will also give experts players far better than I a chance to grasp what makes the game tick, at this early iteration.

I cant wait to get my hands on it, but I cant wait to see if they can get them on.

While the honeymoon period is over, Capcom is attempting to give its reputation a fresh coat of gloss, demonstrating a diverse fighter that will compete with community members, its lab-dwelling technicians, and its long-running, veteran acolytes.

You may take it from one of the latter: is on a path to glory. Lets hope it can remain consistent to it.
