Welcome to the Rollback: a frame-by-frame look back at our past week’s most notable news — and our favorite SRK articles — from November 30 to December 6, 2018!
Zavian “mushin_Z” Sildra, Editor-in-Chief:
The portion of the Venn diagram where fans of The Walking Dead meet fans of Tekken 7 got a real treat in Negan’s gameplay reveal trailer; if you want to verify you caught all of the little nods to the TV show, have a look at this.
The last big hurrah for Street Fighter V in 2018 is kicking off today with its Last Chance Qualifier. Here are the starting points for the best of the best in SFV this year for the final showdown.
The new Smash is now out in the wild — and the classic mechanic has returned, after a fashion.
I literally think this is the worst design decision Capcom has implemented in SFV. When the only good thing about a game function is that you can turn it off, that should be the first clue it’s a terrible idea…
… On the other side, instead of adding hideous ads to their game, Bandai Namco are bringing us bad-ass sword-swinging androids. You know, content that actually improves the game?
Crow_Spaceboy, Assistant Editor:
I might have one or two things I disagree with in the proposed changes, but overall this is one of Namco’s most thoughtful balance patches in Calibur history.
There’s some surprisingly high-profile acts acting as ambassadors on this project. I’m looking forward to it!
Input lag just keeps increasing with new iterations of games, and I wonder what the “breaking point” will be.
This is the sort of wild glitch that is only possible thanks to the limitations of the past. I love it.
I want to play as Shao Khan right now. All of you, get out of the way.
