I was playing it on the train this morning so it was probably closer to 8am.

 

I stand corrected. I wish I’d checked now. Could have had a couple of games before I left the house.

According to ERA:

 

No filters.

Screen scaling messed up on Switch handheld. No option to resize it.

Music messed up.

Terrible netcode (Switch).

 

Will hold off for now.

Just tried Final Fight on Switch, couldn't find any screen filter options or scan line settings.

 

Hopefully it'll get sorted....

Thank you, you've just saved me 15 quid.

 

Hopefully they patch it.

It's times like these that I'm glad emulation is now absolutely top-notch.

 

A bunch of amateurs show the world how to modernise low resolution output (Sonic Mania's CRT filters) and no one else takes notice.

I'm going to hold off.

 

I feel like I was burned by Street Fighter Collection. These just seem like minimum effort efforts.

 

I'd happily pay £8 per game if they were top notch efforts.

I bought it and played Final Fight. It looked rough so to my eyes was an accurate recreation of the original.

 

There’s two buttons - jump and attack. What am I doing that throws people? Pressing both together does the special energy sucking attack.

Just walking into them will automatically grab them when you’re close enough.

Dunno whether to buy this now or wait for sale - but you get infinite continues and Final Fight is probably my favourite arcade game of all time and I don't think I've played most of the others and I love scrolling beat em ups and I've got £17 eshop credit and I'm all done on this season of Fortnite.

 

...... Purchased.

What total total bullcrap Stirling's argument is regarding these titles'. They're not designed to be fun games' 'They're not good games' 'They're concerned primarily with making money' Just moronic click bait statements. Especially when he goes on to declare that they're fun later on. Anyway, I'm sure he's right about the netcode given the evidence so far from players. Massive shame really. Do Capcom have form for providing updates on Switch?

It's just lazy journalism from persons who can't be bothered to invest enough time to learn the various combo systems or mechanics.

 

They're just so used to pressing x to win and have no consequences in modern combat. Some of these mass market games have totally ignored any nuance and progress that was made during the nineties to now appeal to the largest possible audience.

 

Kinda sad how far we've regressed in this regard.

It’s pretty apparent in Final Fight though.

 

The early stages are shorter and broken up with bosses. Later in the game the stages (Bay Area / Uptown ) go on for days, purely designed to extract coin.

 

Knights of the Round has much better pacing. I blitzed through that in about half an hour, it’s better than FF, but the characters and first few stages of FF are iconic.

Nah, I'm not buying that. Sure, they certainly had an eye to extracting players to feed machines, but under pinning it all was solid mechanics and F U N above everything else. I loved the challenge of Final Fight then and still love it now. The coin feeding never seemed at the detriment of the gameplay, imo.

I haven’t tested to quantify it, but the last two stages in particular loop and loop the same backgrounds and enemies for a bloody ages.

 

Whether you view that as creative or cynical decision on the part of the devs  is up to you I guess.

Lack of image settings aside, I'm really really enjoying this in portable mode on Switch. Played some Final Fight and Captain Commando, never played Armoured Warriors or Battle Circuit before and they're both all kinds of Awesome.

 

Looking forward to some local multiplayer.

Yeah, but to be fair like this is anything new.
