Welcome to the Rollback: a frame-by-frame look back at our past week’s most notable news — and our favorite SRK articles — from July 20 to July 26, 2018!

Zavian “mushin_Z” Sildra, Editor-in-Chief:

Frame 1:

Goku and Vegeta just have too many iconic attacks to fit onto one (or even two) versions of their characters.

Frame 2:

Frame 3:

Frame 4:

Has the meta come around, and now Guile has an influence on the actual U.S. Air Force? Will this help Capcom settle on what Guile’s rank actually is?

Frame 5:
sfv cammy v-skill vs ryuStreet Fighter V netcode decoded: Capcom’s online system introduces artificial lag between users

Street Fighter V must be one of — if not the — most-scrutinized fighting games on the technical level, as savvy users examine how the game is put together from the retail side. And the fact that the developers are so tight-lipped about their design decisions is the likeliest reason why.

Crow_Spaceboy, Assistant Editor:

Frame 1:
Sector K Games announces Evo side tournament for Punch Planet, new character Maxx will be playable

I feel like I have been waiting for this character to get revealed forever. Get ready to throw cars, friends.

Frame 2:

Seeing the SoulCalibur II 236B animation again was one of the best feelings I have had in a while.

For me, the passion project of indie game development is the heart and soul of the industry. Go check out all of these guys, and see the love they’ve put into their craft.
