    Casual fans. The competitive scene believes 5 is the best in the series next to 2.

    So, can they fix that godawful story mode? And add (at the very least) endings and some sort of story progression to the arcade mode?

    I hope they are fixing the online matching system to get rid of that shitty "a network error has occurred" message.

    I guess that's why I prefer casual fans.

    IV played fine and it was also a lot of fun in general. V just seems to be missing something.

    No offense, casual fans know shit about fighting games. They're an unreliable source.

    To be fair, most fighting game enthusiasts don't know shit about anything besides one specific fighting game.

    I'm hoping these tweaks mean Viola's crit edge will be made to not suck supreme shit. Nice to see they're willing to fix the issues, that's VERY un-Bamco like of them.
    SCV is a solid game though, if you don't count the shit story mode. But it's a fighting game...story modes are just filler.
