Met Willei in a Random Ranked Match last night. Took a round but lost the match. A bit worried about how the adjustments I'm making are going to effect my SFIV game...0
The shared move lists are a big boon. Almost all of the characters share the same input list (with a few tweaks and exceptions here and there) which means you can switch between characters right from the off (providing you can do a 2xQCF movement for specials etc) - the same deal as with Last Blade 2. This means that the muscle memory threshold is greatly lowered, meaning you can move on to tactical play from an early stage.
It's a simple game to learn, with straightforward supers and specials and, by cutting out a lot of the fussiness of the earlier Fatal Fury titles, results in a much more focused and streamlined experience.
It was one of the last games from SNK proper (before the Playmore take-over), so the animation and sprite work on both characters and backgrounds comes from an art team at the height of their game. Likewise the character roster is awesome, without any weak links.
The game has its detractors for some of the above reasons, but I'm a true believer. I don't especially see the 3S comparison though.0
The big bonus is play over Live though. If you're anything like me, you struggle to find anyone decent who's interested in playing you on the cab, right? I can take the hit of a diminished port for the considerable bonus of instant competition.0
I once spent £300 on this game. The AES cart was a thing of beauty. Probably my favourite SNK fighter.0
Sweet 80% damage Gouken combo.
Also, cute Sagat trickery.
(Via Versus City).0
Has anyone else played Infexious' Ken yet?
Jeepers that was depressing...0
Tomorrow between 6.15 and 7.15 is a guaranteed time to get me. It'll probably be Monday onwards after that.
Mr Goz: same applies to you. I have no idea when I'll be able to play MattLav. Dude is like smoke on the wind.
Ok - I get in at about 7 pm so I'll get straight on it.0
Uzi 0 vs Goz 3
Much better match for me last night after some poor form earlier in the week. Well played Uzi and thanks for the games afterwards.0
I'm on tonight! Probably 10 ish onwards.0
Hey! I can do my matches tonight if you guys are around Hegg/ Infexious/ Mood. LMK.0
Hey Cale! Am on now if you are. Otherwise, how about 10pm?0
I can do my three ce soir if you kids are around.0
That would be lovely!
Have you played Hegg yet? I'd be interested to see how your Kens match up.0
Also, I would say that it's going to take a decent amount of time for the leagues to settle into a natural order. The top three players in this league would all be doing very well in the premier league, and personally, I think Infexious would be at the very top of their table. I play people from across all leagues pretty regularly so you get a feel for pecking order, and we have some very, very good players in here.
Stick with it for sure, providing at least 50% of the time you're having a totally awesome time.0
Gozaimas 3 - 0 Uzion
Enjoyed thee games and the ones with Straw too. Good stuff everybody.0
It does sound a bit of a wasted opportunity, but it's probably down to them having to limit the amount of videos they can allow due to limited storage capacity / money.
I'm sure it's due to them holding back features for Street Fighter IV: Pt2.
Remember how it went following Street Fighter III's release on Dreamcast? Capcom know bretter than most how to drip their features out over multiple iterations for maximum profit.0
That's a bit unfair, goz...
Yeah, it was. I toned it down a bit in an edit.
Whether or not you agree that there was a difference in editorial quality between the site and the mag I don't think anyone would disagree that there was a difference in tone between the two. For that reason it seems reasonable to assume Future believed that the EO team failed in their self-evident remit to be the online voice of the magazine and I think that's why the decision to try to bring EO closer to the mag is a reasonable one and not, as Campbell portrays it in that blog post, the act of a deluded publishing dinosaur.0
I guess he's gambling that people will assume Future are up to their mean old corporate tricks again, and overlook the fact that the Edge website was a fucking embarrassment.
I suspect that's what he's convinced himself as well. Far easier to believe that the decision was made by a publishing dinosaur that doesn't understand the internet than because you failed at your brief...0
Need to fight Dukesy too. Am on tonight if you are buddy.0
Any of you going to be around tonight?
Hey Sith - can do anytime from ten onwards. Will be on as soon as I can.0
Moodmon - sorry I might be reading this wrong but I think there's a mistake in the league table.
I only got one win in week 1, not two
Again - it might be me reading the columns wrong though.0
Hey Moodmon! Can we get a totally sexy league table like the premiers did?0
ChrisBravoTown vs Gozaimas = 0 - 30
Hey ChrisBravoTown - shall we get our match out the way this evening? I can do 10:00 ish if that's good for you?0
