Sumac, I hear what your saying but they would probably incorporate Johnny's intro dialogue to show which color shadow he is.

Intros are skipped most of the time.

Then don't skip wink

No but seriously, you always catch a one second glimpse of the intro before skipping anyway. If anyone REALLY cares about what variation the other person is using, and if that same person REALLY does not like watching intro's it would still be able to be shown in less than one second, with a crafty camera angle and showing cages shadow immediately.

It is possible cages shadows will not be the color change but if it is true they could accomplish it this way. Either that or johnny could have a luminescent glow about him.

Bad idea.
Why people stuck with this idea?

Changes in the costume are a simple way to show-off changes and why anybody would change this just for Cage? It doesn't make sense, intro or not.

The chosen Variation should be apparent all the way through the match, not just appear due to certain special moves. If Johnny's "Shadow" colour is the indication of what Variation he uses, it should be apparent at all times. Perhaps emit from him like a smoke-like aura.

Beautiful.

Where to even begin? The moving boards on the dock? The way the gun slides back after it is reloaded? The lighting off the waves? Or the advancements with Cassie's face polish?

This game looks better ever time I see it.

NRS gave an ultimatum. Either 60fps high quality gifs, but small... or 30fps not so high quality gifs, but bigger.

However, you can just enlarge the gif by putting in width="400px" in the image code, so it will look like this:

I like the Cassie gif so much, I used it as my sig. If you made this, great job! If for some reason I can't use it, I'll delete it from my sig.

this is the equivalent of stretching a VHS picture to fit a 1080p 50 inch television screen and calling it high definition. these tiny gifs are just proof that tumblr is a bad place to share promotional images furious what is NRS thinking

You act like you don't know what franchise this is.

Didn't Steve Beran confirm multiple X-rays in an interview with us only to find out that there aren't multiple X-rays?confused

I'd say just wait a sec and wait for visual confirmation tbh.


This guy gets it.

And if Cage is playable. Will you people get mad if he's ONLY playable in the story mode? glasses

Beautiful, indeed!

I can't wait for this game.

Also, if Sonya and Johnny don't end up being playable characters after all these massive hints, slips and reveals, well, it will be a huge disappointment. Hopefully their story mode roles are as huge and awesome as they've been hinted at.

That being said, life goes on and there's always that badass glorious new b*tch, Cassie, to carry the torch ;)
