I had been meaning to make this thread and I would have put a bit more work into the OP, seriously
but I see you beat me to it.
Anyway, there's a bit of news I had been collecting for various games, which I'll post now:
Part of the new Champion Edition update is that each character will get a second V-skill, and you'll be able to choose between them before a fight just like the V-triggers. So far none of them have stood out, except Poison's (a cartwheel flip that can cross-up or be canceled into a launcher) and Alex's (similar to his current V-skill, except after charging up he can special cancel one of his special moves). Alex's in particular seems like it may actually give him the ability to do stuff and help him stop being a low-tier joke.
>implying anyone cares about SFV
Capcom also provided some information about Gill when he was revealed, but it was lost in the noise. Essentially, his elements are a gameplay mechanic now instead of a cosmetic detail: hit an enemy with a heavy normal or special and he'll either be frozen or burnt, which are not the same as the normal visual effects for ice and fire. Hit him with the opposite element in this state, and the move you hit with will have additional damage and properties.
The balance patch and new moves will be available either for free or as a standalone update for PS4 (and I think PS3) players, which means they can avoid paying $40 for one new character and some new special moves. Still no word of a console port.
According to the community manager, when SNK says "PC release" they don't meant it like we think they do. The Stadia port may have either taken resources away from the PC release or been meant as a substitute for it. Pic related.
It seems like every single interview Daisuke gives for this game shakes my trust in him even further. I won't summarize every little thing that's happened, but there has been a notable outcry in the community against the direction of GGStrive (likely because we've all seen what happened with SFV, SCVI, T7 at launch, DoA6, and other "simplified" games) and it's caused a bit of a rift in the community between Californian dicksuckers who were able to play the demo and everyone else who thinks the game looks like trash. I can provide more detail if you want because it's been pretty funny, but that's all I'll say for now.
The 2.0 characters and update are out. Apparently they're pretty fun, aside from all the bugs and glitch-abusing unblockables.
The devs showed off some gameplay-complete level 3 supers recently, and they look pretty cool despite missing sound effects. I don't feel like webm-ing each one, so you can look at the Twitch clips page if you want to see each one: https://www.twitch.tv/manesix/clips?filter=clips&range=30d
