Yoshinori Ono quit Caocom this morning.

https://www.destructoid.com/stories/street-fighter-producer-yoshinori-ono-leaving-capcom-after-near-30-year-tenure-600031.phtml

Those rumors of him being demoted off Street Fighter V and off SF VI were true, and he decided to take his ball and go home instead of working with the new crew to get SF VI right.

Personally, I don't like the game play of SF IV or SF V, and with this rumored tag mechanic of SF VI, I'm not sure I was going to love SF VI either. A lot of it may have to do with the nerve damage in my left hand and arm, and not being able to play fightibg games well anymore, but I didn't like the game play of either of his SF games before I got sick.

I still enjoy the hell out of SF III: Third Impact, which may be the best fighting game of all time. I also enjoy the hell out of Guilty Gear as well, so it's just a SF IV and V thing.

Rumors out of Capcom are that the direction of Street Fighter 6 was not great. The game had some weird tag mechanics that just didn't mesh with the traditional 2D one on one fighting known to the series. Play testers, developers, and higher ups were not pleased with the game or Yoshinori Ono's directing and direction. Thus the game was scrapped and they're starting back over from scratch. In the process Ono was demoted within Capcom and is no longer directing Street Fighter 6.

Considering that Street Fighter V was a mess from launch Capcom didn't want a repeat of the backlash of that game and Marvel vs Capcom: Infinite.

This is why a whole extra year of Street Fighter 5 content was just announced. It is going to give the new developers a few years to properly develop SF6. Originally the last update to SF5 was goibg to be the Seth DLC pack, but with development not going well on SF6 Capcom decided to keep supporting SF5 for another year.

Remember that Xbox 360 game, Too Human? The game that tanked because the controls were complete and utter ass? (All the combat moves were mapped to the right analog stick, and couldn't be changed.) The game looked great, and the story was passable, but the controls ruined the entire experience...

Well, the PS5 exclusive, Godfall, reminds me of Too Human, except the controls seem to be working. The developers are calling it a "Looter/Slasher" and that's a cute catch phrsse, but I believe it's the sequel to Too Human that fixes most of the problems of that game.

Godfall looks fun, but I don't want to play alone, and I wonder if I could get Oreon and Bank Robber to play it with me this fall. If not , then it will just be "Tooo Human" and I'll just play more Spider-Man.

I literally didn't know Entity13 wanted that phrase as the topic title. I admit to not understanding what Entity13 wanted and I clearly made a mistake. I really am sorry, and ut was an honest mistake. I hope Entity13 isn't gone forever, as it would be a tremendous loss.

I'm apologizing again for my mistake.

Entity13, I'm sorry.

Tell me exactly what topic title you would like for the next topic, and of course it will be yours.

Hey look, I was right. My suggestion didn't matter.

I don't remember what title you chose. I'm very sorry. Tell me which one you picked because I missed it.

Separate note: Remember you can't take the Red Lantern Ring off! Ever! Or you'll die, so that's a minor draw back of choosing the red ring.

Humanity, still plagued by the modern day plague, are trapped...trapped like deer inside of our homes, our faces hidden away from view, our food drive thrus and food delivery apps pushed to their digital and physical limits.

It wasn't supposed to be this way.

It can't be this way.

Yet it is.

28 Geeks later, and not one of them have developed a cure. How much longer will we suffer? With the Internet, television, YouTube, TikTok (For now) video game, movies, comic books, digital entertainment, and old fashioned books, we are desperately running out of content. There hasn't been a new video game released in Hours!

HOURS GEEKS! WHOLE HOURS!

Damn it Nerds, I'm a Geek, not a doctor!

I guess the only thing we can do is post in this topic to keep the hope alive.

Opening Question: What color (Green) Lantern Ring best fits with your personality or world view? (Green, Blue, Violet, Indigo, Red, Orange, and Yellow)

Black & White don't count. (You're not dead or Saints)

What would be your secondary color and why?

Wrap up from, "Life After Geeks" in the following post!
