When we think Street Fighter 6 may drop, why laggy online players should automatically lose rounds, an argument for Master Chief in Smash, and more

EventHubs Podcast episode 55

Posted by John 'Velociraptor' Guerrero • June 12, 2019 at 7:31 p.m. PDT

It's E3 2019 week and Microsoft has announced its upcoming next generation console for the holiday season of 2020, which means we have a fairly educated guess as to when Capcom may be aiming to release their next big Street Fighter title.

Nintendo announced both Banjo-Kazooie and The Hero from Dragon Quest as the next DLC characters for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, and both Steven "Dreamking" Chavez and Nick "MajinTenshinhan" Taylor join us to talk about these new fighters.

Considering how much Smash has evolved, (from a celebration of Nintendo characters into a celebration of video game characters) we feel like Halo's Master Chief might actually be a good bet for an additional roster entry somewhere down the line.

It's 2019 and Catalyst is fed up with running into fighting game players online with laggy connections. He has an idea for developers to implement in the future that involves cleaning up ranked modes by implementing punishments for those who can't keep their ping under control.

Also, MajinTenshinhan has been on the Street Fighter 5 grind for a good while now, and his efforts have begun to pay off. He talks about making it all the way to fifth place with Alex in the European Capcom Pro Tour Online event, and the training that's helped him achieve this.

This week also kicks off our new giveaway contest from which one lucky subscriber can win a $300 Amazon or Steam gift card. You'll see rules for entry below, as well as hear them in the episode introduction.
