You're asking too much of me, fragoff :P. I've never cared much about the aspect of contemporariness (Is that a word?) of entertainment media. Although I do concede that there's some value to be found in considering it, I simply prefer to take my video games at face value.

Far Cry 2 may have pioneered the open world concept, but if I simply couldn't warm up to the way it was implemented, I'm allowed to dislike the game for it, no? Again, I don't mean to poop on anyone's party. If you enjoyed it, that's great :).

Of course. Taste is taste. Beside, it is true that 3d never ages well. So just graphicaly you could shun an old game right there.
The only thing you are wrong and not allowed in diseliking is subs. You know that ;)

This game is so well done. The drawings are amazing, the combat makes sense...sort of...and the csrracters are super weird! I love watching this game, it is a real eye pleaser. You can see this game was a labor of love before anything else!
This game reminds me a lot of the mummy in dark stalker. The way carracters shapechange during attacks and stuff.
You have good taste my friend...even if you fall into mechas a bit ;)

I only know about Skullgirls because a while ago, a number of videos popped up on YouTube showing the English VAs of the characters playing the game and having a blast with it. It did look pretty funky :D.

I recently dabbled into playing Kantai Collection and I was surprised you don't need a VPN or a proxy to play this game anymore - just a DMM account and "Kancolle Viewer" addon for Chrome. The game might lag the first time you play it but maybe that's just my unstable connection. :P

I have a question if anyone here has played this game - can you still unlock the ships that only dropped during past events, or are they gone for good? If the latter, it's unfair to players who have only just started playing the game...

I know kyuubey, brotaku, giant robot hug, btag, jewdude, and a few others still play kantai collection. Some since you needed a VPN. The anime arcade discord can help you along there. As for the events past I don't play the game but I'm pretty sure the girls are on rotation kind of like how fate go runs them in an 12 ish month cycle.

It's easy to run and works on Mac, if anyone wants to play I'm more than willing to oblige. You can find my steam account here

Why did you never inform me of this, we've only played Tekken and Skullgirls together. I didn't know you had Blazblue or Guilty Gear stuff. Although I've played those even less then Skullgirls I do have 1 of each of those series too.

First of all, I'm so happy that it's easier to play now. I have 1 friend who plays it hardcore, 1 who plays it often and 1 who plays it super casually. But they all got into it when it was bullshit hard to play from here, and that was the only reason I had stayed away. So maybe I'll dip my toes in a little.

As for the prospect of past event, I've asked my hardcore friend about it. He said "they’re usually unavailable for at least a year or so, and some rarely return as event-only rare drops after a period of time" so yer, looks like they keep their air of rarity still but it's still possible to get any you miss eventually.
