    Looks like a Westernized version of your typical Japanese fighting game. It’s kind of like a breath of fresh air, will be interesting to see how this turns out.

    And I’m sure the SJWs and feminists will have something to say about the Tyara female character design.

    How is it Tumblr? Tumblr whales hate one-piece leotards that expose a woman’s whole butt, especially one with hips as wide as Tyara’s.

    Not to say the game looks terrible… but fuck me, does every bloody fighting game have to look like it plays like Street Fighter IV? Goddamn it, KOF and Guilty Gear exist as well, guys!

    That’s exactly the point. More people are into Street Fighter than they are Guilty Gear and KOF. They are too complex and for newcomers to understand. Besides, the guy that made this said that he wanted to make a game that revolves around SF4’s FADC mechanic.

    SFIV’s meta and gameplay isn’t exactly simplistic, either. I actually play GG Xrd much better, and I’m not anywhere near as good as I would like to be.

    Still better than SFV.
