  1. Closed beta 2 application page is live: https://cloud.event.capcom.com/sf6_cbt/entry-complete?regist=1 December 16th.
  2. It's been the single worst series of performances by any player in the history of football. I heard he burned down an orphanage at half time against Korea and strangled Suarez to death in stoppage time before pissing all over the Uruguayan supporters. HYSTERICALLY BAD. I don't particularly care how he does for Uruguay as long as he brings his brand of defense terrifying madness and sheer unbridled chaos back to our games. The goals and goal contributions have been welcome too.
  3. Ronnie O'Sullivan, especially in more recent years. Hard to know if it's really the sport or because he's generally quite a troubled guy though. Definitely not happy with the tour structures/prize money/standard of new players. Also in an interview last year said most snooker players have wasted their life, he'd discourage his kids from playing it, that the solitary practise in darkened rooms does a lot of damage and that he'd have pursued F1 or Golf instead if he could do it again.
  4. Offline versus mode too! That's been the real joy of the cracked beta for me so far.
  5. Duff penalty aside I thought Bajetic had a very tidy performance for such a young player. Good thing Kelleher is a shoot out god.
  6. Oh wow I have never seen that image in high enough resolution to spot Dhalsim before. Also it is highly inaccurate as Honda/Sagat is 7-3 in Sagat's favour. It should depict Honda being far away getting pied in the face with tiger shots until dead.
  7. Been playing this a lot over the past week. Been lovely having house sessions for a new Streetfighter game again, especially with some of my fellow grumpy old man SF4 players who didn't like SF5 as much. I still think Drive Impact is the worst thing about the game, but I absolutely love everything else about it so I can put up with it. Also found this bit of sauce with Ryu off a drive rush overhead:
  8. The board game is primarily designed with co op in mind. You can play it solo but it’s intended to be played with friends. I have played literally thousands of hours of the video game but don’t think it makes the board game redundant at all. I’m excited for it. Myself and my fellow spire nerd friends have been waiting for this kickstarter to go live for almost two years. They put it up on the Contention games site very early and it’s been on “coming soon” for what feels like forever. I thought it might have been quietly abandoned for a while, but then found that the guys behind it have been updating via an extremely long AMA thread on boardgamegeek the whole time. It is quite pricey, but that’s niche board games for you I suppose. Going to split it with some pals to bring it down a bit. Now just have to wait another year and a bit for the actual game to arrive.
  9. Played about 30 games of Ryu mirrors with a friend this evening. Game is so much fun. It plays an infinitely better game of Ryu mirrors than SFV did, partly because of the overall pace of the game, but also because this Ryu is a great match for himself. The towards roundhouse hop kick to crush low forward, the strength of low forward itself, the power of denjin charge in the fireball war. Could have played all night if I didn't have one of those bloody jobs people have. Still not a fan of Drive Impact but I love literally everything else. One thing I really like is how trades work. It's the first SF game where both characters still complete their animation before they go into hit stun, so you can fully see which moves traded. Will make trade combos more consistent and also just removes a bit of spaghetti from the game generally. Also the versus screen faces still make me laugh. I thought it would have worn off by now but they're great.
  10. I haven’t kept up with the rest of the league as much as I usually do this season, so genuine question: what has happened to Leicester? Why are they struggling so badly? Is it injuries? Just seems odd that their start has been this bad.
  11. Alisson comfortably our best player today, what a miserable watch that was.
  12. First half performance was excellent, would have been gutted to go in 1-1 at half time after the penalty. Love this system for away teams who will try to frustrate. Great to see Tsimikas get the assist; Nunez is the big target he's been waiting for for his lovely crosses. Nunez had a few misses, still quite obviously needs to mature a bit, but the stuff he got right and his overall performance was very exciting. Great to see Anfield so behind him and he deserved the praise today. He will be frustrating at times but he also has a very high ceiling based on his physical attributes and raw talent alone. Loved how much defending he did too. I trust in Klopp to make a monster out of him. West Ham were excellent in the second half and we did well to hang on to all three in the end. Sensational challenge from Milner, I couldn't fathom how they'd failed to score in real time. It was a nervous watch but the first half was thoroughly enjoyable. Overall very chuffed about this little run of three games we've had, especially when we're still constantly missing key players.
  13. No Pep, this is Anfield:
  14. I’m disappointed with a lot of the character themes, especially when some of the SF5 ones were up there with the best work they’ve done. I love this one though: https://youtu.be/LxIw78JeA2Q/watch?v=LxIw78JeA2Q
  15. Yeah I absolutely think the one bar cost is the biggest issue with it. I quite like the threat of it against a cornered/burnt out opponent too, but tapping it through offense or just speculatively throwing it out shouldn't be so readily available. There are answers to it and we will all improve at dealing with it, but I'd rather not have to have to add "guy who does drive impact all the bleedin' time" to the list of online opponent archetypes. Like one answer to it is to just not really play footsies in the mid range and wait to see if they do it at random. I could do that, and I will I have to, but I'd like that to be something I'm looking for against an opponent who really needs a big swing in their favour and has to commit to it, rather than just someone who fishes for it whenever it pops into their head.
