Welcome to the Rollback: a frame-by-frame look back at our past week’s most notable news — and our favorite SRK articles — from October 5 to October 11, 2018!
Zavian “mushin_Z” Sildra, Editor-in-Chief:
From the players’ perspective less input latency is always a good thing, so hopefully Capcom delivers on this promise. You can also check out VesperArcade’s thoughts on how it will affect the game as well.
The TOLIII lineup just keeps improving. This will be an impressive display of Super Turbo prowess.
Lazybones2020 gets some insight into the ongoing development of DOA6 as it creeps closer to completion.
X-Kira/Miyuki-Chan again is laying out predictions for upcoming SFV goodies based on the game’s code; the finds are piling up, so if these are accurate we should start seeing some of them soon. They also claim more costume Easter eggs are on the way.
Following on the heels of news that Punk, Scar, and Theo were leaving the team, now this… it’s looking like Echo Fox is letting most, if ultimately not all, of its FGC talent go. We’ll have to see who is left standing, if anyone — could SonicFox or Tokido be next?
Crow_Spaceboy, Assistant Editor:
On one hand, I love the way this looks and I want it. On the other hand, it looks really… wide, doesn’t it? I feel like I could set pocket notebooks on this thing while I play.
Everything surrounding this closure, from the end of an era to the fallout of players associated with the arcade, has been incredibly sad to watch from afar.
Not everyday you get to share a combo video for Thrill Kill. Who knows how gaming might have changed if this thing actually saw the light of day.
As horrendous as Mortal Kombat 4 was (don’t @ me, etc. — actually, wait, no, do @ me… getting an essay on Mortal Kombat 4 from its sole defender sounds hilarious) I really enjoy these behind-the-scenes looks into Midway’s — at the time — unique processes.
This might sound silly, but this is my favorite Lei move, conceptually. I love the fact it’s +9000 on block but leaves you in this weird sorta-back-turned state.
