    I clicked for Mai’s milktanks, but that is really great of them.

    I bet even the demo will have more content the SFV.

    I was going to buy this, but then I realized I can’t play fighting games.
    Then they do this. It’s actually hard to choose, man. This is WORTH the money

    I’ll give it a try. I love the KoF series and this looks pretty good. Hope it plays good as well.

    Sure I give it a try… 50 CHARACTERS!?! You surely mean 25 and the other 25 as overpriced DLC, right?

    The tourney on Atlus’ Twitch channel has been great so far. So hype for this game.

    Probably will have more downloads than actual sales of SFV!

    Hopefully. KOF is a great series and deserves more attention.

    This is great and all, but it’s honestly really sad that devs rarely put out demos anymore.

    This is awesome,wasn’t expecting this.So far SNK is doing everything right with KOF XIV,can’t wait to play it.

    Nope,50 characters all on the disc.This is not Capcom.

    I’m pretty sure he was being sarcastic, but a dig at Crapcom is something I can get behind.

    Damn, i do hope it comes out, like many other fighters recently.

    Demos hurt sales though. Whether the game be good or bad.

    I’m pretty sure demos only hurt the sales of bad games.

    I’ll tell you right now I wouldn’t have bought Overwatch if I didn’t get a chance to get my hands on it personally through the open beta.

    I believe he was reffering to demos not betas. Which are not entirely the same thing.

    A demo game is already finished. It’s just a sample of the overall game/product.

    A beta game is not finished. It exists so that glitches can be found and edited before the game/product is released.

    For example, Minecraft was in Beta for a while, but there is a demo online to see if you really want to buy it.

    Wish capcom would at least utilize shinkiro more if they are gonna still have him on their payroll.

    Awesomesauce! SNK allows Mai’s glorious boobies to free like nature intended. Capcom on the other hand puts poor Mika in a burka. The Capcom girls should totally switch sides to SNK leaving only the males like Ryu to be objectified. But hey who gives a shit about consistency!

    It only hurts bad games. Hell, even leaked alphas of a good game can skyrocket a games sales. Remember the Deus Ex debacle?

    Better have the sauce to support that.

    After seeing the DOA5 version of Mai, the KOFXIV Mai is really meh to me now. :^)

    Well it was more at the genre in general since DOA, MK and KI do similar shit, but yeah it was sarcasm.

    Depends if the demo is good or bad. I was turned off from God of War because of the demo. The demos to MGS3, and Silent Hill 4 are what made me buy those games. After MGS2 I had no interest in playing any more of the franchise until I played the demo. As for Silent Hill 4, as much shit as it gets, at least it wasn’t Resident Evil 5.
