    Seriously, you only have to use goggle for like 3 minutes to find Tron and Zero are Inafune's own creations and his favorite 2 MM characters while Megaman and Megaman X he did not create.

    I'm getting a guest editorial tonight, I'm hoping it ranks somewhere above utter putridity.

    It's a near 3000 word editorial/commentary/theory fighter on everyone's new favorite trench coat.

    I wrote it in a addarrall fueled "focus too intently on the wrong thing" haze when I should been working on my thesis.

    There is some incorrect comma usage, conversational style sentences, and much too much outline format.

    If you didn't write it in Hulk speak then I'm not reading that shit. I'm going to make a new thread in General Discussion bitching about how useless it is instead. Please note that I will not read your article before making the thread. That won't stop me from making a bitch bitch bitch post that's longer and probably not as well written (in Hulk speak). Bet I get at least 11 likes though.

    The UMvC3 stuff almost certainly gets the most traffic, and (total guess here) I'm not sure if maybe the writers get paid more for making a bunch of smaller posts rather than a roundup.

    Also didn't Ogawa just get sponsored by eLive or someone? Besides, I think Fresh Lettuce just used "pro" as a synonym for "top player".

    That's literally what he made an article about, a direct response to him getting mad at a large portion of capcom's fanbase posting about how one of the most important and popular characters the company owns is not in the game and telling them to shut up even though it's very obvious he's not in the game for political reasons and not for an actual good one lol

    None of what you said was true at all.


    http://www.shacknews.com/article/52832/capcom-releases-lifetime-sales-of#

    Megaman games sale an average of 233,333 per title.

    Megaman doesn't even make the top 20 individual title sales.

    Megaman is not as popular as Capcom fans like to pretend. If you took these numbers outside of Capcom and looked at the whole gaming industry, Megaman would look like a worse company mascot than any of Sony's wannabe mascots.

    I don't understand any of the complaints except for the one mentioning too many combo videos and maybe one article that I read of d3v's. The articles I chose to read were thought out and written well. So I say keep on moving don't stop now.

    Maybe they can design the front page different, so there is like a side panel for latest combo videos or something, so that they can still be highlighted, but keep the main front page for news and articles?

    Having multiple sections for news, combo videos, tourneys, etc would be much better and much more organized than just cramming everything into one page. Right now the front page is literally just a clone of eventhubs which is ass backwards because eventhubs used to be the shit version of SRK.

    I think a little more consolidation and quality control would be a great idea; I check SRK pretty much every day, and I didn't see the competitive gaming article because it was washed away in a sea of Marvel 3 combo videos. I don't really like what is happening with the front page right now, tbh, but I guess this is what the leaders of this site want; all that I would ask is a little more care goes into editing and organizing the front page contributions, because right now there is just no separating the wheat from the chaff.

    Don't know what all the complaining is about.

    I for one simply could not do without my daily dose of 12 articles that basically just link to random 2 minute YouTube videos of random players doing random combos with random characters in random games regardless of the quality, practicality, or relevance.

    I read the qualifications for the job and realized that I did not necessarily qualify for such a position.

    Yeah, the "must be able to write more than three consecutive sentences without bringing up erections, abortions, or masturbation" requirement would be a challenge I reckon.

    I echo the thoughts above that there is a good point hidden somewhere in your post, but you have done your message no favors with your presentation of it. Further, as Tataki pointed out, no matter how much you wish this site was dedicated to the most hardcore of the hardcore, it really isn't. Directly from the SRK facebook page.

    Shoryuken.com is the largest fighting game community site on the web, and is the most authoritative voice for everything Street Fighter.

    From the most current fighting game news, to forums, podcasts, product reviews, and more - Shoryuken.com is the complete site for fighting game players and enthusiasts.


    Fighting game players is a pretty generous categorization. Maybe the whole source of your consternation (semicolons aside) is that you don't understand who the site is for.

    Hopefully in time we'll get actual personality on the front page, because as it is now (and I hate to say this because I know Adam) but it's like someone cloned Keits six times and put them to work on the front page instead.

    I agree

    If you look at sports news websites, They have main stories on the front page and sidebars full of different stories pertaining to different sports leagues.

    You have front page with big news: IE, new characters / games / tournament results, and then on the sidebars, plenty of links for ppl interested in those games to look at. Otherwise the front page is redundant. The info is replaced too quickly and it's messy.

    Also... i could really go without the articles about objectifying women and why "BALANCE DOESN'T MATTER"... i mean come on, really

    I like where it says since you probably suck so your character choice doesn't matter.

    I also liked where it talked about how you don't have to pick bad characters without addressing the fact that if a game is being updated over and over that characters who aren't viable should be given the tools to be viable instead of being ignored.

    Guess what? For 99% of us, it's true. Complaining about matchups (more than just being salty) when there are things you can do to improve is ridiculous.

    I don't make the games, I just play them. I'm pretty sure this argument is a futile one on a website about competitive fighting games. Character gets buffed? Consider picking him up. Character gets nerfed? Weigh your experience with the character against the metagame and other factors to see if you should drop him. Or quit playing the game until a new patch or version comes out. These are the only arguments that matter from a competitive standpoint; the ones that answer "what can I do to win more?" Convincing me that your character is underpowered does NOTHING to change it.

    If you blame your losses on the game you won't improve. This new hand-holding generation of "make my character better so I can win more" is disgusting. If there's a better character then play that character, quit playing, or quit bitching.

    No shit balance matters but you can't do anything to change it and perfectly balanced games are not fun at all.

    I'm not saying that isn't true, most of the community is bad at these games, however these are the people who are going to be buying these games going forward. You have to give your customers what they want. If the character they like sucks at all levels of play why should they give you their money?

    It's hard to pick up a character and learn them completely when the game is being patched so regularly. It takes a long time to switch and learn another character at the same level as your current character.

    If everyone drops a character then they never get developed and we honestly won't know how good they are. Speaking from the perspective of a player who plays a character who other people think is garbage tier after his AE nerfs, I know that it isn't the case. I've done what I can do to develop this character to the extent that I have, and if I had dropped him after the announced nerfs last year he'd be considered garbage tier even by me.

    Do you really think Joz or myself has that mentality? When the developer is patching the game and there are legitimate gripes to be made you make them.

    What games are perfectly balanced and also not objectively bad games? None. Anyways people don't want perfect balance. People were fine with the balance in SSFIV for instance and they are fine with the balance in a lot of older games. People would settle down with balance discussion if the game was no longer being updated, but it is, so it's easy to see why the topic is at the forefront of people's minds.

    Yeah tbh I check eventhubs to find results for majors, which is 1 more reason I have to check eventhubs front page over SRK's front page, which I currently have no reason to read. In fact a lot of the time I can't find tournament results on SRK at all anymore. It doesn't seem like people update results threads with any consistency anymore.
