It's weird how CPT has been making me watch -less- street fighter instead of more. All of it is on Capcomfighters now, and they only have archives for subscribers and most of the US stuff is very late at night for me...

Experienced Souls player here, this is one of my favorite threads on GAF rt now - have been reading for days. Finding BB to be exquisite.
Here's a question for new-comers: Is anyone a fighting games player?
I ask this because fighting games are the least blamed for cheap mechanics or design when it comes to performing poorly at them. Everyone knows that you need to learn the mechanics/rules, gain the required muscle memory and play with great awareness to the situation in order to exact your strategies or find openings and effectively land your combos. Everyone knows this.
Now, almost everything said above applies to both BB and other Souls titles. That said, this correlation is not apparent to most because it's obfuscated by the genre (action RPG where the majority of titles are dissimilar in this respect). There's a fair amount of expectation for the game to be designed in such a way that things just work out for the player without any investment into the game by many casuals and journalists who've expressed complaints.
Fighting game players who are new to BB:
Are you finding that you don't have nearly the same number or type of gripes about the game? And does BB tickle some of your FG sensibilities?
Once you get into PvP, I guarantee that it will hit you on the head. Just happens to be a 3rd person view and there are a bunch of RPG chr adjustables thrown in, but at that point you may as well consider it a unique type of fighter.
There are a lot of comparisons to be drawn; you are taught some basic mechanics in fighters (or even in the case of fighters with robust tutorials...), but to get to the real meat of it, you experiment/practice and perform research in order to succeed.
I think there is a beautiful comparison to be made between souls & fighters here.
Blaming the controller for a failure? lol, that might be the only common complaint you can get a good laugh out of for both of these platforms
Was wondering if anyone from the FGC had any thoughts on this. (apologies if this isn't a good place, wasn't sure how to get FGC eyes on it - sure I'm not the only one playing BB as well )
