  1. What's weird about your DNF theory, if true, is that Dungeon Fighter is itself a twenty year old live service game. A popular one that's alive and well today.If anyone should understand how to support a game, especially in a genre outside the typical live service ones, it's these people.And yet.

  2. Hey, you actual forgot a fighting game that released in april!

  3. Ever thought about doing a arcana heart retrospective? Also DNF duel falling off wasn't shocking people who care about the series literally just play the damn game its based off of and well its not as big in the West outside Latin amerce

  4. I really hope A.B.A gets added to Strive. That'll for sure bring me back after I sorta lost interest.

  5. for 2b being in the grandblue fighter would love if eventually the other guest characters from the OG mobile game got included(seeing street fighter,cardcaptors,gintama/bobobo-bo bo-bobo,mha,jujutsu kaisen,demon slayer,doraemon,code geass,pretty cure,persona 5,detective conan,tales of series,samurai showdown,sakura wars & especially one piece/slayers be possible candidates for a fighting game would be awesome.:3)

  7. Planned to stop playing fighting games this year so I could have time for other stuff. Capcom had other plans. My friends got into fighting games for the for time since I had started playing them specifically SF6 so I ended up joining them. Then another group of friends started playing GGStrive so I returned to that game for a bit and even bought the DLC so I could play as Elphelt while listening to music by Ozigiri. Finally I got caught up in Granblue Rising which is the third game I have ever entered a tournament for. Would get Undernight, but I want to keep my focus to just one fighting game for now.

  9. Great video, thank you Thorgi. I really enjoyed it. Please make this an annual feature of the channel. As a result of this video I tried out the free version of Granblue Rising and am having a blast with it so far.

  11. Multiverse was really fun, thank god I never spent a single cent

  14. Stop this rubbish and give us SF4 already. And then mabye a short one for Art of Fighting. My OCD can not stand that you've done Fatal Fury and King of Fighters, but not Art of Fighting

  15. I’m waiting for the new Fatal Fury game. I enjoyed the dlc for KoF XV. I’m not a fan of SF VI. I tried to like it. I played Breakers, that game is a pain in the butt. lol

  16. KOF Kyo is technically a turn based fighting game.

  17. Mortal Kombat vs killer instinct build a roster

  18. GIGABASH MENTIONED 🗣️🗣️🗣️👑👑👑💪💪💪. GAMES IS FINALLT GETTING ONLINE REVIVAL!!!!

  19. Thanks for covering rumbleverse dude, that's one of my favorite games of all time, however short its time was

  20. Re: Bedman's identity,

    Are you surprised to be confused by a plot detail in Guilty Gear? 🤣

  21. 59:50 no that's still over priced and stop the apologetic "i'd give u money if u were nicer to me price wise" rhetoric, the reality is a FULL PRICE GAME SHOULD NEVER HAVE THAT MONETIZATION
    games should be one and done, live service isn't a game its a job and its apparent why they always suck

  22. I’m having fun with SF6 I was always a big fan of MK but the kameo system I dislike it, 😐 it changed the whole gameplay in my opinion 😅

  23. This is a random question, but do you have another channel? Your voice sounds really familiar and its bugging the holy hell out of me

  24. 17:55
    Wait, when did Marvin the Martian get added to Multiversus? I played it off-and-on for most of its lifespan and I definitely would have maimed him if he was there because he’s my favorite Looney Tunes character

  25. Idk if you forgor but there was one last jojos dlc
    And it’s honestly the coolest one I think you should check out (wonder of u)

  26. Funny, you mention Naruto Baruto connections in this video but no Dragon Ball Sparking Zero which is is area fighting game as well.

    Also what was my favorite?….well….as of now I have never played SF6, MK1 and Tekken 8 since day one release. =/
    I just can’t play online…=(.

  27. Took me a bit to get to this video, but yes! Do this annually!

  28. Maaaan, I got into Rumbleverse two months before it shut down, and it was some of the most fun I ever had in BR, it had so much promise but all things come to an end I guess.

  29. my favorite dlc of the year is definitely keicho from jojo, i didn't really care for him in the anime but he's really fun to play

  30. 1:13:10 i almost thought we were entering nsfw territory out of nowhere for a second lol

  31. does anyone know the song that plays continuously throughout the march section? it sounds familiar but i can't put my finger on it.

  32. 48:30 Rashid, without a airplane engine on his back, without being announced on 09/11… That's heresy! The japanese infidels will feel the wrath of Allah on their Tokyo Prefecture Bulding!

  33. I feel sad about the rumbleverse. I never played the game. But visiting their reddit out of curiousity, the community is still active even after the game hut down.

  34. I am still exited for multiversus and there are tons of people who make their own wishlists for new characters to come to the game when it comes back.

  35. I'd love if you did more of these, it's easy to put on at work and to catch some cool games I missed like Monstroscopy! Funny enough when I added it to my wishlist I saw you in the reviews 🙂

  36. Idk why people get so stuck on the season pass thing with Multiversus specifically when goddamn Fortnite did it

  37. I think you hit the nail on the head with your criticisms of WB overall though
