afaik he was the 'best player' and then quit and seems to have completely vanished due to finding a girlfriend/religion/bored with iidx, and it seems like this is a pattern, as in same story with CStarFlare, and prev. high-scorer players which have since quit.

If this info is incorrect then nevermind me.

yeah it is because vgta basically admitted to lying about the last scores he was putting up

he prolly wasn't better than jadin except in like 2005 maybe

Was that a midair kick followed by a jaguar kick? Oh man.

Super get hype


That's pretty damn cool, X-Adon in A3 could do Jaguar Kick in mid air but they replaced his jumping kicks entirely, so being able to buffer into it (AND link an attack after the Jaguar Kick hits) is new.

I'm hype that Guy kept his Final Fight chain, for some reason I was worried they would remove it since there aren't many preset chain combos in SF4. And he can juggle off it like in A3. His shoulder charge looks pretty slow though, sure hope the jab version is comboable at least (and sure hope it's his armor breaker).

Also there's already been some speculation that Sagat has more recovery on his Tiger Shots now, based on the part where Adon JAGGA TOOF's him. Hee hee heeeeee

I've only played shamwowla (tricky Chun), Jadin (solid Dhalsim), and BBH (out of 10 times maybe I'll win like 2 or 3 :< ).


Naw man you do better than that in our RANDOM SELECT BATTLES. If I'm playing Bison though.... ninja.gif

And don't bother with KOF XII, netcode's been patched and it's still balls. It's improved, but still couldn't even play schlagwerk (who's like 5 miles away) without noticable input lag. SNKP is a giant fuckup, I wanted this game to succeed (since I'm pretty good at it and stuff) but the game is DEAD.


Tekken 6 netcode patch is out! Too bad I was barely able to find anyone to play late at night, tomorrow it should be a lot easier to find matches (especially when people KNOW the patch is out and come back to the online). It is a huge improvement but not perfect - I haven't played a 5-bar yet, but I played a 4-bar and it was pretty damn good. Played some 3-bars and it's a little laggy but I could still do juggles. Anything less, don't wanna bother. I'd say the netcode is slightly worse than SF4 so far. It's good, but in a game where you need to be able to react to attacks and block the correct way (can't hold down-back all day), any considerable bit of lag is death. Will definitely be playing it some tomorrow. (and SF4, maybe?)

Also Hori EX2's aren't THAT bad, I completed all the SF4 hard trials on my ~Soul Calibur 4~ EX2 before my TE showed up. Although I swear mine feels better than any other EX2 I've ever played on. Huh.
Jadin
if you tighten the springs on an EX2 they feel pretty sweeeeet

That was for HD Remix - that was the match that made it on video. None of his SF4 matches were recorded, unfortunately (made me sad since I watched the streams all fucking day and only saw BBH fight once haha).

Yeah, After Burner Orgasm Climax better come out for XBLA. I'm also happy that it's a DL game since After Burners are hardly meaty enough in content to make for a full retail release. That and the experience of playing After Burner II or Climax is best in the arcade with a moving cabinet.

I wanted KOF XII to succeed because I liked where it was going. I will still eternally wish for KOF XII-2 like a good little fanboy.

I have an EX2 as well. I like it but my biggest complaints are that the buttons aren't microswitches so they're not clicky enough and the whole thing is kinda small for me. It always keeps shifting on me.



Think I'll hop on SFIV soon and see if I can find any matches while I eat my Thanksgiving dinner.

I've only played 2 matches so far, but post-patch Tekken 6 seems to run a LOT better, and you can decline matches against people with lousy connections now too.

To be fair I'm not really a big-name player in SF4, and most of the matches that went on the big screen were players with SF4 name recognition. Although my 2nd match in the semis was against Arturo "Sabin" Sanchez, which I barely lost, and then Sabin went on to play Marn, which was on the big screen of course...

How nice, there's already a huge mob outside of Best Buy and apparently they started their online deals today instead of tomorrow at some unspecified time so of course the only thing sold out is the PS3 bundle. Imagine that.

Oh hey neat I still have a chance. Walmart's deals go online at the same time as the store opening so I can order that or I can see what amazon comes up with for tomorrow's lightning deals, which supposedly contain some form of PS3 bundle.

Nah, a few of the games I wanted were sold out online, too. But I got RE5 and Riddick for 360 for $40 together, so I'm pretty happy with it.

Yeah, apparently Amazon is going to have a PS3 + Killzone 2 + InFAMOUS for $300 tomorrow. That's what I heard, at least.
Eggman of the Strata
Yeah, that's the bundle. I'm waiting until 2am (central) for when the next round of lightning deals shows up to plot it out. I'm going to get this.

And then I'm going to instantly order Valkyria Chronicles from GameStop because it's $19.99 now. I just don't want to buy it before I for sure have the system on its way.
Eggman of the Strata
Hell yeah got the amazon PS3 bundle lightning deal. It also comes with $10 promotional credit on top of the two games. So now it's on to get Valkyria Chronicles!

So, Breath of Fire III is on EU PSN now. I've seen people say you can make a JP PSN account and download demos with it. Can you make a EU account and download full games with it, or is there some kind of regional billing lockout.

Try making an account and registering a credit card with it and see. I know you can't use Australian credit cards on the American store, fortunately in my case I registered an Entropay card before they blocked that.

You could always just import the EU PSP version of Breath of Fire 3. It's probably pretty cheap by now too.

As far as I know, yes. I know several people in the Bemani community (via FB or whatever) got their consoles banned a few weeks ago in Microsoft's Halloween 2009 Banhammer Extravaganza.

I am pretty sure that they permanently ban your console, but I'm not sure whether your Gamertag gets banned too. In any case, I don't think it's really worth it.

Yes, people pirating on 360 generally seem to get caught and permabanned - the console and the gamertag, I think. Microsoft recently banned several thousand people using pirated games on their 360s. I'm sure there's some out there that have avoided it, but for the most part, it's pretty difficult to hack your way onto Live and not ever get caught.

It's just the console, you can recover your account to a new 360. One of my friends had to do this.

sup

the only thing that happens with your 360 is it cannot connect to live, you cannot install games (Unless you do some new exploit people found out by soldering, creating a cable and hacking the console with a hex editor to free up your 360 however you still cannot connect to live), and transferring saves becomes corrupted from your HDD if you saved (again, there's an exploit that works around this that's far simpler).

basically, expect to last a year. pplz are working on a newer version of the firmware that's suppose to respond with the ways MS uses to detect firmware. you are still locked to your region even if you mod your 360 so you can only play NSTC or region free games.

think about it like this, lets say you mod your 360 with the newest safest firmware, and you last about a year or so until MS figures something out. by that time, you should've already saved up enough money from not buying any 360 games to get a new 360. now you have your banned 360 to play modded games and you have your normal 360 to play whatever live games you want. so in the end, even if you get banned, you still end up saving more money. this depends on how much of a gamer you are anyway. modding my 360 probably wasn't worth it because I'm not really a huge gamer and I only play sf4/HDR. then there is obviously moral qualms, etc too.

pm if you want to know more I am laughing out loud.

Dirt 2 is a really really good racing game but there's a few things I wish I could change like

1. More rally events. Like, rally rally. Not rally cross but just regular time trial type rally.

2. Spread out the level gain more or make the later events happen at a higher level. They show up so fast that I now have too many events to go through and it just looks daunting. 27 events just at the second tier with more in the third tier still coming? Plus the World Tour events and the last X Games event? They definitely could have pushed the tournament events out further. Choice is nice but some areas only have a couple of tracks or in the case of Japan, just one track with multiple variations so finishing all of the events there gets pretty boring.

3. Let me have the soundtrack playing during races. It's a good soundtrack. I have a minimap, I don't necessarily need my rally partner calling the turns.

But other than that, great times. It doesn't have any rubberband AI either.
