Input delay reduction in Street Fighter 5 will change everything... or will it? We discuss the highly requested change's potential - EventHubs Podcast

We also cover the implications of Combofiend working at Marvel

The input delay change coming to Street Fighter 5 could potentially have a huge impact on the game — or not, depending on who you ask.

In the latest episode of the EventHubs Podcast we deep dive on this subject, exploring the input delay in contemporary fighting game releases, and how those games felt.

Titles on the PlayStation consoles have traditionally had more input lag in regards to fighting games. John and I explore this subject, as well as moves that are heavily dependent on being able to react to them, such as overhead attacks in Street Fighter 4 and SF5, to find some common ground on how this change might alter the game's meta.

Then we get into our final conclusions on how we feel this will change the game overall, and what users should expect when the input delay reduction hits on October 23, 2018.

Combofiend was confirmed as a Marvel staff member recently, and we talk about the implications of this, and other recent history, and how it may impact the Marvel vs. Capcom franchise.

Lastly, we're giving away a Razer Panthera fight stick to listeners of our podcast who leave a review. It's free and easy to participate. You can find more details on this below.
