Virtua Fighter 5: Final Showdown
With all of the E3 news going on right now it's almost easy to forget that actually playing games is more fun that reading about them! Luckily for me one of the things Sony announced yesterday was a greater focus on free games for PS Plus subscribers, which means I got my hands on VF5:FS.

Anyone else playing it? The last Virtua Fighter I owned was 3TB for my Dreamcast. I skipped 4 and only rented the original version of 5. Despite not getting into that version I have to say I'm really enjoying Final Showdown so far. That's probably in large part thanks to the fantastic training mode. Virtua Fighter is just not very accessible, but is incredibly deep and technical. The Dojo in this game does a great job of easing players into the game. I already took Sarah Bryant online and won a match against a player with a pretty good ranking!

A few other things to note about the game:

The music for the fight with Dural is fucking awesome!
Lau's Great Wall stage is one of the most beautiful stages in fighting game history. The way the fighters interact with the little puddles of water is amazing.
Customization parts being DLC instead of unlockable is bullshit.
The character design is great, which really makes me wish VF had a story at all.
Speaking of lack of story, why is Lau so old suddenly when no one else seems to have aged much?
Netcode so far has been absolutely flawless!
This makes me want Fighting Vipers and Last Bronx sequels so bad I can taste it!
