Street Fighter III: 3rd Strike

[Why 3rd Strike...] I like not having to worry about shitty teammates. Or the salt I feel when a bad enemy player gets carried by his teammates.

 

Is exactly why I've been wanting coop in fighters for years. Playing ranked solo is maybe the saltiest of mines around, and to me, ‘worrying about shitty teammates’ is the sign of a terrible attitude that doesn't see its role in putting others off. And if a bad player gets carried, so what?!

 

If I could play coop Tekken with mates I'd be carrying them a bit, and I'm all for it! I want to help others out and encourage them. But fightdevs keep catering to players with this guy's views, and I think it's hurting the community by keeping it toy-pramsy. Snake Eyez said he doesn't have any FG friends and it made me like him more!

Even though the actual business of fighting was a bit of a trainwreck, I'll maintain that 2v2 in SFxT was one of the most enjoyable fighting game things for a while - plotting together, apologising for screw-ups, poking fun at the opposition. (Also: pairing up with a drunken @Curtis for peak chaos :D ) They tried 3v3 co-op with an update for DBFZ but I was rarely able to arrange games with two other players, and that game's full of killers now.

 

Honestly, if they incorporated some of SFxT's ideas into a co-op mode for IV it would be the best thing. Maybe.

Tekken Tag 2 would've been sublime with good enough netcode, and they even had their short-lived WTF right there for it! A game built around tagging, released not long after SFxT, without that game's online support. It annoyed me that Harada and Murray were never asked about its omission, when plenty of us were so keen for it. The shitty-teammates voices were and are more common.

 

But teambased shooters are doing big numbers now as we wait for the first fighter to embrace it, remembering that teams have a celebrated history in tournaments. It matters more to me because I haven't played ranked in years, and if I could play in a team with mates I would. Beating others is the aim and reward, sure, but I miss the social pockets of our arcades; learning from better players and bantering. Double Dragon understood in '87!

I'll be looking for a teammate too. I expect I won't be part of any upsets like I was in the ST tournament, but I'm looking forward to it anyway. I am terrible at Third Strike, unless people fall for my UOH nonsense. Which no-ones does, and that's fine.

@joffocakes let me see, I may brake out the saturn USB pad now the election nonsense is out the way. 

 

Shend, please make it to this, I've not played you online or seen you play online since XBL days in 2006!

My internet connection would ruin everyone’s day. Also I’d spend 99 seconds doing fullscreen neckbreakers and getting blown up.

 

FC2 is super stable man, jump in!

Looks like RLLMUK will have two teams which will be great!  Joffo and Shend\Jonster.  Or Lyrical and Jonster if the Shend makes it.

 

What's Goeman and Fuddle up to these days?

 

Can't believe I'm still playing this game all these years later...
