After playing a few Guilty Gear Strive matches with @RaZieLDaNtE earlier today (or technically yesterday, I suppose) I though we could use a forum topic.
Use this to discuss games, characters, combos, tips, strategies - for any fighting game out there.

Maybe we can also set up some Push Square online play sessions - would be nice to get a few players in (King Of The Hill style or something).

Tagging @MightyDemon82 who also plays Strive and @TraCuz- who mentioned considering getting it.
Feel free to tag others.

To start things off - here's a stylish Chipp combo I'll probably never pull off in an actual match (luckily there's an easier version that does almost as much damage)

I tried playing Tekken 7 online a bit cause I tend to play fighting games offline mostly. Somehow won 8 of my first 10 matches. Dunno if Lee’s supposed to be any good but he’s my favourite.

Socks before or after trousers, but never socks before pants, that's the rule. Makes a man look scary, like a chicken.

Black Lives Matter. Enough is enough.

@nessisonett I got Tekken 7 on sale and played it a bit but I would be lying if I said I’m any good at it
It’s a cool game and so is Soul Calibur but I definitely do better at the 2D games myself.

@Voltan Soul Calibur VI is incredible. Like I said, I don’t really play them online but that game has brilliant offline support.

Not much of a fighting game aficionado but I enjoyed Injustice 2 and Soul Calibur 6 quite a lot. But yeah… offline. Except for that asynchronous auto team fighting mode in Injustice 2. Otherwise I know I’m not nearly good enough to be online.

Hi there fellow gamers.
I quite like the idea of this.
Tagging @Omnistalgic who is also a fighting game fan.
I believe he is currently playing Virtua Fighter 5 Ultimate Showdown.
There are quite a few fighting games out there, some with good netcode and others with a not so good netcode. Still, we can just find some games we all have and have some fun matches with each other or even a King Of The Hill or a tornament like @Voltan mentioned.
Because, again, it is all about having fun.
Cheers, stay safe everyone and happy gaming to us all

@Voltan I had Tekken 7 when it launched, but the singleplayer content was so lacking for a tekken game, that I just didn´t care much. But I could get it cheap now I guess.....

@nessisonett @Th3solution Hi there fellow gamers.
Soul Calibur VI and Injustice 2 are both really good examples of good fighting games with quality singleplayer content.
They are also super fun to play once you graps the new mechanics of each game.
I still have my Injustice 2 copy installed on my PS4. One of my favourite recent fighting game.
I only have Soul Calibur VI on PC though.....

@RaZieLDaNtE I like how MK11 has a built in KOTH mode where the winner keeps playing, the loser goes to the end of the line and everybody who's waiting their turn can automatically spectate. Wish Strive had this too (not they I currently have enough PSN friends playing the game to use it but it would be cool nonetheless)

@Voltan cheers for the tag, I'll look for you on PSN when I next turn on my PS5.

I mostly play offline against my wife she can button bash and still beat me at Tekken 7.

Loving playing as 2B in Soul Caliber 6 and still just getting a feel for all the characters in Strive I quite like I-No

MightyDemon82 if anyone fancies a fight some time. Pouring a lot of time into Trails of Cold Steel at the moment but I'm sure I can get a few rounds in!

@RaZieLDaNtE Yeah I'm down! Still playing a bit of VF but just hit a little wall so I'm ready to jump into GGS now. Also retired from SFV but I may get back into it since my main Ken got buffed a little and I see Momochi using him again. Let me know what games you guys are in! PSN - Omnicloud

@MightyDemon82 @Omnistalgic I'll add you both on PSN right now. Not sure when I'll be online exactly but I'm sure we can get a few rounds in sometime
Strive's online play is awesome even if the lobbies are not exactly perfect. I actually kinda like the design (the avatar customization options are pretty cool) but yesterday was literally the first time I tried playing with a PSN friend and not just somebody I randomly met in the lobby and the first thing that happened was "can't start match due to a connection error". Luckily all we had to do was try again.
Also the initial server communication when starting the game takes forever - hopefully they'll do something about that soon

Also @Omnistalgic - your PSN name sounds familiar - were you in some tournament streams I may have seen or something?

@Voltan That is why KOF XIV and MK 11 were and are fun because of that.
Especialy KOF since six players could play on two teams of three and any other person who were waiting could watch the matches. I love the idea of team matches

@MightyDemon82 Hi there friend.
I´ll add you as soon as possible for some GG Strive matches.
I´m glad so many people are enjoying a Guilty Gear game. The more, the merrier.
Cheers, stay safe and have a good one
PS: do you think I should get back into Tekken 7? Or should I just wait for 8?

@Omnistalgic Hi there friend.
Glad your on board. SFV is a weird game for me personaly.
Heres hoping SF6 is a better and more fun game right from the start.
Cheers, stay safe and have a good one

@RaZieLDaNtE Nice list. Mine's kinda short I currently only play on PS5.

Games I actually play: MK11 and GG Strive.

Games I have in my library and I suppose I could try to learn some basics if we were going to have a few people playing:

  • Street Fighter V (from PS Plus)
  • Guilty Gear Xrd -Sign- (which I only played a little bit offline)
  • Guilty Gear Xrd Rev. 2 (which I got because it was ridiculously cheap on sale but never actually played it)
  • Mortal Kombat X (PS Plus Collection)
  • Tekken 7 (which I played a bit but can't say I'm any good)
  • I think Injustice 1 is also on the PS Plus collection?

I suppose I could be talked into getting Soul Calibur 6 too (I did have SC5 on PS3)

@Voltan Ok, maybe I should also say wich of them I´m currently playing in terms of online play:

  • Guilty Gear Strive PS5;
  • Mortal Kombat 11 PS4;
  • Killer Instinct PC;
  • Garou mark of the Wolves PC;
  • Chaos Code PC.
    There are others that I just play offline only.
    I could also get SCVI On PS4 if more people are into it.....

@Voltan umm...the most recent thing I was in was an VF5 tourney with some Discord friends? Were you there? I played SFV heavy but that was years ago lol...

@RaZieLDaNtE Who you telling, I seriously Doubt I'll pick it up again, it's too 50/50 based and only enjoyable if you are extremely high level with high execution. Even then the 50/50 set play hurts you a lot and you see more skilled players losing to a guessing game. I really hope they nail SFVI as well
