SFV AE Weekly Missions and Extra Battle Mode for 6/14/19 - 6/21/19

It's Friday June 14th, the 71st week of SFV AE and this week’s missions went live at 12AM last night! This week’s missions are:


1.   Use a V-Skill 10X for 50FM



2.  Play a Casual Match for 500FM



3.  Play Training Mode! for 250FM



4.  Get a KO with a EX move 10X for 250FM



5. An Arcade score of 100,000 or more will be recorded in the rankings for the title “Mayor”.



This week’s missions can net you a measly 1050FM. Subtract the cost of the second Shade Crossover costume and the Crossover BGM if you haven't gotten it yet and the Fortune Tix fight and you'll end up with -2700FM



After completing the weekly missions, head over to the eXtra Battle Mode, this week we have:


1. Get your hands on Fortune Tix against Sagat #3 for 250FM participation fee






2. [Quick and Immovable] Get the Crossover Costume #2 for Sagat (Shade from Cyberbots: Fullmetal Madness) for 2500FM participation fee.




3. Get the Crossover BGM! Helion Theme from Cyberbots: Fullmetal Madness for 1000FM






I've pretty much given up on Fighting Chance and the stupid Fortune tix thing, it's a FM sink in a FM recession! Oh and coming June 25th we're getting a "new" stage! The SF II CE Ryu Stage, Suzaku Castle at Night....

Soooo I have some questions (the same ones as everyone else)
1. Why?
2. If I bought the Suzaku Castle stage do you expect me to drop either 2 bucks or 40K FM for a reskinned stage?
3. What FM do you think we have? I've been a miser with my FM so I could afford it via FM but again, why should I have to pay for a reskinned Stage?




As always, keep fighting the good fight till the end. Be smart with your FM and don’t complain about the XBM golden soldiers and "Shin" versions of characters because the alternative is Capcom charging REAL MONEY for all DLC characters.

Square Enix E3 Final Fantasy VII Remake

 E3 2019 is now in full gear and Square Enix dropped a new trailer  for Final Fantasy VII remake that gives us a release date which is just under 9 months from now, 3.3.20. But once again we don't see Tifa. I also on't believe the entire game will be available in March. Square Enix's conference begins today at 9 PM EST....I hope we see her then!
UPDATE
So the full trailer was just released and we get to see Tifa, and along with the trailer we got a great game play demo!

Google proves it doesn't understand the Video Game Industry

Google has done some amazing shit over the years, they are the only viable search engine....it's not like you ever hear someone say let me Bing that,  Gmail, G+ (RIP), but what I just watched makes me wonder "Do they understand the Video Game Industry at all?" 
I understand that the end of the age of Video Game Consoles is approaching and I'm not sure anyone knows how to move forward.
I'm gonna sound like an old fart but when I was a kid watching TV required you to get up and physically turn it on, there was seven channels 2,4,5,7,9, 11 and 13. We didn't need a TV provider, the electricity used by the TV went into the electric bill....SIMPLE. Then Cable came around and the Home Box Office was born...Cable was considered a luxury at first but soon became common (like all things like traveling on trains and aircraft) and for the most part it was an improvement.
Fast forward to 2019...the 21st Century, the FUTCHA! I now pay Verizon over 100 bucks a month for access to the Internet, and the ability to watch TV (over 100 channels! but so bloated with utter shit), I pay AT&T every month so my Iphone doesn't turn into an Ipod at the stroke of midnight,  I also pay Netflix $15.00 /mo to gain access to there vast library of movies and shows via their streaming service. But there's other Streaming services out there that offer original content and movies and shows that Netflix doesn't have.....they cost a monthly fee also. And this fall Disney will be opening shop with D+ streaming service so we can watch all their proprietary content starting at a comfy $6.99 a month! Then there's the 60 bucks a year I pay to Sony so I can play multiplayer online games on my PS4 with PS+ (but they sweeten the deal by giving me free games to download each month (some crap some AAA).

Ok so you get the point, everyone's got their hand in my wallet and my wallet only holds so much money. So I gotta be sure I'm spending it on what I truly want as far as entertainment is concerned. And I believe that goes for most gamers around the world. I've been a gamer since the beginning of the second generation, back when complete games came on cartridges that were stuck in big ass consoles as time went on consoles began to evolve, they began to look like they belonged in a home theater set up and less like a childs toy. Games evolved also from cartridges to CD's, to DVD's to UMD's to BD's, we're now in a transitional period where games are available to buy digitally. At the beginning of the current (8th) generation I was very skeptical of purchasing games digitally because of the whole DRM drama Microsoft created when introducing the XBone @ E3. I still wanted to be able to share my games with friends and vice versa which could only be done via physical copies of the game. So here I am days before E3 2019 and the majority of my library this generation is digital.
In my mind I've payed for something and I own something, I can't touch it or trade it but it's on my 7 TB external HDD....so I "own" it. My only concern is will I be able to play it years from now?? I know if I hooked up my NES and threw Golgo 13 in it would work (after some vigorous blowing).
So that leads me to what I just watched on You tube....Google showcasing the Stadia video game console streaming service....I'm gonna recap the points I feels will be Stadia's downfall.
Stadia is a streaming game service, meaning you don't own anything but a controller and a Chromecast dongle, what does the controller connect to? can't charge a wireless controller without a console to connect to....guess you need AA or AAA batteries? So the initial $130 investment for Stadia Pro is for a controller and a Chromecast dongle???
If you're streaming Games you never actually "own" the game, it's coming from Googles servers via the Chromecast dongle to your device, How are you "buying" anything? That's like Netflix charging the $15.00 /mo for the service then charging the MSRP of the movie to view it......GET THE FUCK OUTTA HERE!!!
Sony has PS Now....their first foray into streaming games service, so for a monthly subscription you'll have access to HUNDREDS of games from the Playstation's vast library, you can also download the game to the console similar to how Netflix allows users to DL certain movies and games, but once that subscription ends so does your access to the game....you don't ever "own" the game.
So if you want to "own" the game you can go to the Playstation Store and buy it and DL it to either the console's HDD or an external HDD.
Google Stadia appears to be strictly a streaming service so what exactly are you buying?
Anyway this Post is getting a bit too lengthy what do you think? Will Google's Stadia be succesful or will it exit stage left and be greeted by the Jaguar, Lynx, Neo Geo and Ouya and 3Do with open arms?

Death Stranding....I still have no idea what this game is about! And it's becoming very frustrating!!!!

First off the image I used totally encompasses the deafening WTF roar of the entire gaming community....nice job!
I'm sorry but this trailer doesn't clarify anything, the game is still shrouded in secrecy. The story makes no sense, and the game-play looks extremely similar to a certain Tactical Espionage Action game that relies on stealth. There is a YT channel, The Tomb Portable that had some convincing video's theorizing that Death Stranding might actually be MGS0 but they haven't posted anything recently which could mean 1 of 2 things he's abandoned his theory or Kojima Productoins asked him to STFU because they were right.
I want to support Hideo because of all the BS Konami put him thru but this trailer really doesn't help sell this game to the masses and all the beautiful characters (Lea Seydoux is gorgeous IMO) can't save a game with such a bizarre story and if it's too political it'll be DOA. I have faith in Hideo so I will absolutely give this game a chance.

Star Trek Picard Teaser Trailer

Image result for Star Trek Picard While Uncle Paulie's away I'll post this for him, cause I know he's as much of a fan of Star Trek as I am of Star Wars....makes for some enjoyable conversations.
Of all the different series in the franchise TNG was my favorite. I tried to get into DS9 but it just wasn't able to grab my interest and hold on to it and Janeway.....well that show was lost before she was for me. I kinda liked Enterprise for a bit but again I lost interest....
I really hope Picard reignites my interest with fascinating stories and quality character development not hollow fan service and SJW agenda's!!!

Ken Masters wants Frostbite hair for Street Fighter VI!!!

Image result for ken MAsters SFV hair dramaWhen SFV launched the FGC was in an uproar about Ken Masters hair! They called it banana hair and the overall  consensus was it was bad.....really bad. In fact Ken's been struggling with his hair style since SFIII. But last night EA put out a demo.....for hair!
Mr Masters tuned in and has invested a great deal of his wealth into the Frostbite engine in hopes that his legendary locks will return in SFVI.

Terminator Dark Fate One Sheet and Trailer

James Cameron returns to hopefully save this sinking franchise!
So Dark Fate is, according to James Cameron, the true sequel to Terminator 2 Judgement Day.
So all the other Terminator movies were just glorified fan fiction??? OK
Terminator ✔
Terminator 2:  Judgement Day ✔
Terminator 3:  Rise of the Machines ✖
Terminator: Salvation ✖
Terminator: Genisys ✖
Terminator: Dark Fate ✔

The trailer looks very familiar, you can see the new male terminator (BAD) takes the roll of a cop in the middle of the trailer and the new female terminator  (GOOD) fights him.
The one thing I noticed was they're both rocking new tech! The black Terminator isn't just another T-1000, the "skin" can "clone" itself so in essence it's 2 terminators in one!
I wonder if we'll see John Connor at the prologue?

Star Wars SC 38 Reimagined

Dear George this is a worthy upgrade to the original light saber fight, I have the original OT on VHS and the Special Edition on VHS and the first DVD release of the OT, I've seen all the changes and additions you've made to the OT and some I agree with and understand, others not so much. But you're the maker and it's you're galaxy and we're just visitors, but I HOPE this video makes it to you because this re imagining of the light saber fight between Obi Wan and Darth Vader on the Death Star in Episode IV A New Hope is so well done it does nothing but enhance the scene and breathes new life into the film!

Spiderman Far From Home Post Endgame Trailer

Ok so this trailer sheds light on the timeline, and a huge nugget of info about the MCU post Endgame.....
I smiled when Peter suggested Captain Marvel and was told she's not available.....I have a feeling someone's contract might've been snapped.
With the discovery of the multiverse the MCU could potentially bring RDJ and Chris Evans and Scarjo back......not that I would want that, it would undo all the emotional weight in Endgame.
If you thought Time Travel was a tricky road to navigate opening up the Multiverse could totally screw the pooch in the wrong hands!
