Fighting Game Catch-All

Pages

Your home for all discussion surrounding KOs, frame traps, cancels, and 1-frame links. Which is to say Fighting Games.

Basically tagging for now.

Well, I'm East Coast so really the weekend is the only time I can participate.

Weekend days during the day are a good option. Let's see what other folks fill in.

Cool, I'm down! Hopefully we can get a decent following, though definitely seems like fighting games are a nichy niche here. But even a small group would be swell.

I don't have MK, T6 or SC5, just fyi.

I'm not expecting a huge group, I'm really expecting the group we used to have. At the time is was primarily myself, EvilHomer, Lupus, and 1Dgaf with others coming and going. HINT HINT you four, put your times in!

I don't have SC5 either. I'll pick games that people have, or if they need to be bought can be acquired on the cheap. Hence starting with SF4, and next up will probably be Marvel.

I can do most nights after 9:00 CST. I'd prefer to avoid Mondays and Fridays which conflict with TF2 private nights. Wednesdays and/or Thursdays are usually good. I probably can't make 2 a week most times though. Not sure I would buy any new games, though. I barely played SSF4 or MvC (is Ultimate compatible with MvC?). That said I always like fight nights.

Sadly Ultimate is not compatible with vanilla MvC 3. I'll mix things up so that people don't get left out for lacking a game if at all possible.

Currently Saturday is the top choice, with Wednesday being #2. Please fill in the doodle (linked in the OP) if you haven't already, so I can do my best to accommodate.

OK, 5 people filled out the form. Based on responses, here are the days/times:

Saturday @ 3 PM PST (6 PM EST)
Wednesday @ 7 PM PST (10 PM EST)

Do those times work for everyone?

I can make most Wednesdays. Saturday will be tough with spring here already.

For some reason I thought you had said Saturday was good too, so that's what I entered on your behalf. Oh well, this is in part why I chose to do 2 nights instead of just 1, I assumed not everybody would be able to make it to a single night.

I'm going all in on this. I want to get good at fighting games and look forward to these nights in helping my progression. I traded in all my console games and have acquired all mentioned games except for Tekken 6 and SC5.

We'll all be glad to help you out. Getting good at Super SF4 will go a long way, since the basics of that game carry over to every other Capcom game, and also a bit into BlazBlue.

I'm going to ping Lupus via PM, since he hasn't posted here. It's not the old band if we're missing a member.

Yo, just saw your PM, ahrez.

I'm down, by my time in the evening is a little irregular at the moment. There any interest in getting 3rd strike or SSF2TurboHDRemixUberSpectacular in the mix some time?

Third Strike!

What a hero!

If you picked up all of those titles, then I think an arcade stick is definitely worth it. Here's the cheap one many folks start out with. Even with a nicer stick, I still don't mind using this one. (Looks like Amazon is out of it at the moment.)

I'm sure we can get together a sub-set of folks who want to play those. I already have HD Remix, and I'm happy to throw down $$$ for Third Strike.

Saturday's aren't necessarily bad but the afternoon time is going to be inconsistent with soccer starting for the kids and general springtime stuff beginning as well.

I'll give it the ole' college try, Ahrez. Anything to punch Lupus in the face some more.

I don't know how the netcode is, but Best Buy has SCV on sale for $40 this week if we want to try that.

I suggest we try things out with what we own already. SC5 will probably be down to $20 by the time we get through the list we already have.

Wednesday @ 7PM PST is the first night, make sure your copies of Super SF4 work. Remember that if you don't own Arcade Edition, then you MUST install the Update Kit manually to be compatible with anybody who does own Arcade Edition.

Also, for anybody who owns Arcade Edition, the game will lock out the AE characters if somebody playing does not own AE. So don't be surprised if you can't select them, but the games will still work together.

So, I definitely want to try to get in on some of this, but my availability has been extremely unpredictable lately. So, I'll try to keep an eye on this thread and try to make it when I can.

SSF4: AE is only $20 new at GameStop. Do it!

My fight stick should arrive in the post tomorrow. Woo!

If you update to arcade edition digitally from super, do you get a whole new list of achievements as well?

Wow, that's a great question.

As someone who did that, I'll check for you tomorrow. I don't think so, though. Maybe just the 200 or however many DLC can add?

I couldn't verify the achievements, but I installed the Update Kit and patches last night and it all went swimmingly. I recommend getting that done tonight if you plan to play tomorrow.

EDIT: 7inch posted this in the SFxT thread, and it's worth watching for anybody trying to polish their skills before tomorrow. It's a commentary on how to think about doing FADC combos, presented by UltraChen. Thanks, 7inch.

I might try and join you guys. I ended up with a copy of SFIV:AE a while back and just never played it.

I've been needing a reason to do something on my 360 anyway.

For anyone interested, I think I'll try to hop on around 9 eastern tonight, if not a bit earlier.

Ok I'll definitely be on now. Managed to finish everything I wanted to get done tonight early.

I'm almost hoping this game makes me miserable. I don't want to buy more fighting games if it ends up fun

Challenge accepted!

I can't even beat the third character on arcade set to medium.

Don't think anybody has anything to fear.
