Some people are getting in, but I'm stuck at the "failed to upload R-Code" step. Wish they'd just let us skip the online verification and head into training mode at least.

Been at for 3 hours. Man the struggle is real trying to play this on DualSense, I've been playing with my Hori Fighting Commander for 4 years so playing without it is difficult right now.

This netcode is like the best I've ever experienced. Too bad GG isn't exactly my forte. I can manage with Ky so far, playing old school fireball traps etc, but I don't understand half of its mechanics. The floor I was on was good for me though, I wasn't curb stomped by endless combos and racked up a 3 win streak.

Looks phenomenal though and I have a HRAP Hayabusa so I might get this one. I really like it.

Yeah it has the Best netcode, but still has too many error happening tho, if they fix those the online experience would be pretty much almost perfect or even perfect.

Got back in. Played Ino and Gio. Ino feels a lot different. She isn't as nowhere as insane as she was in Rev2. I'm pretty bummed out how she plays now. She lost a lot of combo potential in this. I do not recommend her if you're starting on GG. Gio feels slightly nerfed but she is still fun to play.

Some thoughts on Ino: I really felt the constraints of this game playing Ino. She feels slower, her air dash is fucking terrible, and overall is less fun to play imo. Not to say she doesn't have unique combos in this because she does. But how you go about it is really limiting and feels offputting. You can't even hover dash full screen or control her trajectory. Some normals and specials don't work the same as they do in Xrd. Overall Iam bummed out on she plays but I'm still willing to play and learn this version of Ino.
I can't find the install in the Playstation store. Did they remove it?
Nah it ended Sunday morning
