    Fighting Games that are not Street Fighter

    Picked it up earlier today. No idea what I'm doing but it's still very satisfying to mash a few buttons. As is tradition with fighting games the story mode is utter nonsense. Took about an hour and then there's an individual side story for each of the 20 characters. Libra of Soul mode is apparently a more involved single player affair, though.

    Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection - May 2018

    The Switch patch will finally arrive on 30th October alongside some other fixes for all versions. Nothing substantial other than fixing the audio in 3rd Strike. http://www.capcom-unity.com/strumslinger/blog/2018/10/19/update-for-street-fighter-30th-anniversary-collection-on-october-23

    Absolutely my favourite game of the year. I'll be buying it again on PS4 at that price.

    Hollow Knight - Soulsvania platformer

    The shaman charm only boosts the offensive spells, I'm sure. I do like Quick Focus combined with Deep Focus though, for fights where chances to heal are slight.

    Really struggling on a DLC section; I've attempted it around ten times now but either fail at the same part or from getting cocky on route. And I'm having a great time strugglin.

    I think it got delayed to November in Europe.

    Mark of the Ninja Remastered

    Just bought this again on Switch and played through the first level. Ah, it's still lovely even at this early stage with stripped back abilities. Keen to play through with developer commentary too, once I've finished it.

    Just wasted several hours... I'll return to finally finish the game fully after Mark of the Ninja. Ah!

    Mark of the Ninja is one of the greatest videogames of all time.

    I do agree that the game requiring a compass purchase which takes up a charm slot is stupid. The start of that game is very unfocused and I'd have preferred it to be a bit more linear* until its logic is clear. It's magnificent all the same, obviously. I don't think I ever failed to retrieve my geo after death since, compared to Dark Souls, the shade positioning is always a generous stretch away from conflict. *linear in terms of an obvious, explicit path to progress. Let speedrunners go wild.

    Yeah but I still think fighting games need to find a way of teaching this kind of stuff organically, wrapped in an entertaining, branching, single-player story mode. These tutorials explain mechanics with dense text followed by the smallest moment testing practical application: I've completed several tests with no clue what I did to pass or why.

    Nintendo Switch

    I don't think so; I think each player needs a JoyCon half to play. The Pro controller isn't supported. I've not tested that, though.
