The recently released Steam port of Samurai Shodown 5 Special is incredible

This is something truly magnificent. There was a crappy port of this game released on GOG a few years ago from DotEmu who are infamous for their shit ports of good arcade games, but everything was recently rebuilt from the ground up by Codemystics. This port implements some very pristine rollback netcode, and I've yet to experience any online hiccups. Input delay is simply not an issue here. Everything looks and plays perfectly. SNK fighting games are the bee's knees.

Whatever, just wash your hands.
Neat, I was wondering how the port was. I have a weakness for fighting games despite not being great at them.

3/10, not enough "Wof Wof".

...but seriously, SamSho took more than a few of my quarters back in my arcade days, and I'm glad to see it get a good modern-day treatment (along with not having to pay $650 for a Neo-Geo and another $200 for a cartridge just to play it at home). Sadly, though, I no longer have the reflexes for fighting games.
