    A bit of gameplay from the folks at IGN and some poor discussion from yours truly.

    Every time I buy one of these I think that this is the time it will go from being better than all that came before to actually good. But it just...isn't.

    DBC14 was a big leap forward. I'm kind of prepared to call that one good. It hasn't aged amazingly but it was definitely good for a 2014 indy game.

    DBC17 just wasn't finished when they released it - it was a downgrade at release. A bunch of patches later and it was almost what you'd have expected to be released following DBC14, but most people had already returned or given up on the game by that point, and it still wasn't the upgrade many were hoping for.

    I haven't played AC17 yet (I can't yet - the one downside of belonging to the PC masterace ) but it has good reviews, from many of the same people who (rightly) trashed the initial DBC17 release, so I have high hopes.

    This would be the main selling point for me.

    Will it have a Streetfighter element to the game? Stokes will obviously be the final boss.. similar to M Bison.
