Lgndary Thoughts - How To Save A Game


Happy Friday everyone! This week I am yet again going to be talking about Street Fighter (I know, I know, I’m sorry). I had planned to write about another topic, but it wasn’t ready in time, so I had to substitute this one in. It is a Thought that I had planned to write for awhile now anyways, so I hope nobody minds. 

The last time I wrote about Street Fighter V, I talked about how the game lets people purchase characters by just playing the game. And how some players were insisting on Capcom giving them more despite the fact that every other fighting game required money for DLC. But today, I am going to talk about how Capcom saved the game from a bare-bones mess, into what it is today. Welcome to Lgndary Thoughts!

Street Fighter V originally launched 2 years ago. Capcom held several beta tests that allowed players to try out the game, and many were very happy with what they saw. The visuals were great, the gameplay was excellent, and the fighters looked awesome. There were some technical issues that needed to be worked out, but most people thought the game was really shaping up to be a great improvement over Street Fighter IV. On top of the excellent gameplay, Capcom had also announced a  shift in their policy regarding updates and DLC. Unlike SFIV, players would have the option of buying characters simply by playing. In addition to that, Capcom also promised players that they would never have to pay for a Street Fighter IV to Super Street Fighter IV style update again. Needless to say, fans of the series were pumped. 

That is, until the game launched. 

Upon its release, buyers of Street Fighter V couldn’t help but notice the glaring lack of what had been standard features of past iterations. Most notably was an arcade mode. A VS CPU mode was also missing, amongst some other, smaller things. So to put in plainly, while the core of the game was great, it was incomplete. 

Naturally, sales of Street Fighter V did not meet expectations, and was being outsold by other fighting games in tremendously less time. Even when Capcom added a cinematic story mode, and made many other improvements, the game could not shake the perception of being bad or a waste of money. It started to feel like no matter what Capcom did to the game, the perception of what it used to be would continue to hold it back. It wouldn’t be enough to add an arcade mode, or VS CPU mode, or anything else. They needed something bigger. 

Enter Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition. A brand new version of the game that redesigned the menus, added new play styles for characters, added not just 1, but 5 arcade modes, just to name a few of the new features. And to top it all off, this entire version of the game was 100% free to all existing owners of Street Fighter V. 

With one release, Capcom generated a ton of hype around their game, fixed almost all of the problems the original release had, kept those that already bought the game happy by giving them free content, and destroying any perception that the game was unfinished. It took them 2 years to do it, but Street Fighter V is finally the game it should have been all along, and more. When faced with criticism, Capcom didn’t walk away from the game, or try to defend it, they actually worked hard to listen to the fans, and delivered. That is how you save a game, and other developers in similar situations would be wise to take notice.

Lgndary Thoughts - February's PS Plus Lineup


Happy Friday everyone! The month of February has just started and with it comes a new batch of Playstation Plus games. Unlike last month, however, I am not going to forget to write about the new games. So welcome to Lgndary Thoughts!

For those that missed it, here is February’s lineup:

  • Knack, PS4
  • Rime, PS4
  • Spelunker HD, PS3
  • Mugen Souls Z, PS3
  • Exiles End, PS Vita
  • Grand Kingdom, PS Vita (Also available on PS4)

Starting with Rime. Personally, I’m pretty excited that Rime is included in this month’s lineup. I have been interested in the game since it was first announced, and couldn’t wait to play it. That is, until it launched. Initially, I didn’t pick it up when it first released because I was waiting on the Switch version. But when that released I heard it didn’t run so well on the Switch, and that a lot of problems weren’t even exclusive to the system. Despite the issues that apparently were present in some form on every console, I still wanted to try the game. Enter PS Plus! Now I get to play the game without having to buy it separately. That way, if I don’t enjoy it for any reason, performance issues or otherwise, I wont be too upset. Something I think PS Plus games are perfect for. 

Moving on to Knack. I actually have Knack, and have had it since the PS4 launched. But I am still very happy that it is apart of PS Plus this month. I have talked about this game on the site in the past, but I don’t mind saying it again. Knack is not a bad game. Knack is actually a pretty good game, and one that I enjoyed a lot. The reason it has such a bad rap is back when the PS4 was about to launch, the press was given a very limited amount of time with each launch title, and could only play them for a few minutes before having to go off and write a review. And when you play Knack on easy mode, for 20 minutes, it is easy to think it is a bad game. That is why the reviews were bad, and everyone else kind of went with it. This is something that still bugs me to this day. 

But if you play it on a higher difficulty setting, and actually give it a chance, I think most people will enjoy the hell out of it just like I did. That is why I am stoked that so many people are going to have the chance to play it, and see for themselves that it isn’t as bad as so many people made it out to be. 

All in all, there isn’t anything this month that I am just sitting on the edge of my seat to play. But I am still very satisfied with the lineup. I get to play something that was on my radar, but didn’t want to risk money on, and a lot of people will get to play something that they heard was awful. 

But what do you think? Are you still happy with the direction PS Plus has been moving in? Or do you think Sony could do better? Let me know in the comments below!
