    I want to go to tubbies but I gotta buy groceries and make some turkey soup. The bird in my fridge will go bad otherwise!

    Yeah being back at work is the suck fest 5000 lol :(

    There are so many infinite combos in marble 3, unblockables + vortex bullshit in streets...

    After they "patch" xtekken does anyone think we will get some service to the aforementioned?

    Or will they just focus on Darkstalkers?

    Personally I just want sf5 progress or another exciting patch to sf4, maybe a few new characters?

    Ono troll said he wants to increase fighting game popularity by 10% in 2013. They better have something up their sleeves.

    Is anyone planning on travelling to tournaments this year? If so which ones? I'd like to!

    In many ways, SFxT kinda already is "SF4 with a few new characters", but it has its own style too. I dunno, I think the Tekken chars are pretty interesting (the SF characters are mostly pretty cool too, actually), so hopefully the game improves to a state where people enjoy playing it more.

    It's weird, for all the time outs and defensive play in SFxT, it's probably the easiest game in SF history to get perfects in? The damage is so high and you really can't afford to get hit ever. I imagine after the 2013 patch, perfects will be even more common. It's such a strange effect... so easy to get perfects, but sometimes it seems so hard to kill a character, lol.

    to be totally honest i always thought grey life was like the #1 reason timeouts were so prevalent

    its cool that you can do an 80% combo on someone...but it only does 35% real damage, and 45% damage they regenerate instantly when they raw tag their next character in and keep them in

    im looking forward to the patch fo sho

    The Grey life thing is pretty crazy. In the new patch it will be even crazier.. you'll have throws doing 50% (grey) life and crazy shit like that. Especially since most ppl still keep doing shitty jabjabjabABCLauncher combos nonstop.

    Not being able to DP-tag is probably going to hurt some characters that have no other good was to safely tag... oh well, fuck 'em! I'm glad that derpy shit is getting nerfed to hell.

    Pretty much everything that I that was bullshit is getting nerfed (fuck you Rufus) so I'm happy lol
  • fogerfoger lame is good Joined: Posts: 5,661
    what is the point of grey life anyways? isn't having 2 characters enough hp?

    just make shit like jabjabjababclauncher scale like a motherfucker
  • InfilInfil una catástrofe con una pelota de beisbol Joined: Posts: 8,629
    jab jab launcher does scale more than a normal combo (it's supposed to encourage links, even if you link the same buttons like jab -> strong -> fierce), but it probably could do a bit more scaling.

    That said I think they're concerned about damage so they probably aren't going to make the most common way of doing damage do LESS. Especially since many people's best punish in some cases would be something into launcher. I do think if people start playing the game more frequently, they'll explore better combos though... there are SO many better combos in almost every situation for almost every character than LMHH.

    I think launcher combos won't be NEARLY as annoying now that they removed the screen freeze on the launcher animation and boost chains are mega unsafe on block across the board. And if someone wants to punish my DP with two jabs into a launcher string (even if they throw me later and take away the gray life), I'm fine with that because they could have probably killed me, lol.

    I've been training modeing with a bunch of new teams.
    My main team is Nina/Christie, but I've been trying out Raven/Lili, Kuma/Ogre, Bryan/Lars. Some brief thoughts on the patch.

    - Nina getting anti airs is a much needed boost.
    - Christie finally gets a couple ways to overcome fireballs. She was having serious problems against fireball/dragon punch.
    - Raven gets a couple better anti-airs, but the fact that he can't throw shurikens while jumping back really changes up the way he plays. fairly big nerf, but I suppose warranted.
    - Lili getting faster walkspeed? Wow. She's already pretty good to begin with.
    - Bryan is fairly awful in this game. I don't think the patch will help much.
    - Lars needed higher damage output for sure. I think these were addressed in the patch. Glad they made his jaguar kick an overhead as they should have from the start.
    - Kuma will have a couple new tricks. I think he can cancel normals into hunting stance now.
    - Ogre will pretty much be the same. Nothing too drastic.

    I thought SFxT high level w/gems turns into a 2 touch game even the way it sits right now? Two clean hits for a game like this is pretty good, especially if there are good outs from vortex setups, which there currently is.. but rolls sound over-nerfed in 2013 so if it ends up being 2 touches with SF4-esque knockdown mixups, forget that

    I've seen some really nice combos in SFxT now but a lot of the more optimized ones are just loops, and unless the loop is some Magneto ROM kinda stuff they are my least favorite kind of combo

    Sometimes launcher combos are better for switching characters and gaining more meter for those without good solo combos.

    Rolls can still block during recovery, it's just that they can no longer do roll -> reversal DP -> tag cancel. I think rolls being vulnerable to throws is being overrated right now. While throw start-up is getting buffed, the short range didn't have a word of getting buffed. It'll still take a good guess to throw an attempted roll escape, especially to those with slow walkspeed/bad forward dash.
    Ah well, we'll see after patch.

    I've been playing around with Lars the last few days in training, he actually seems pretty good already. His combo damage is average or slightly above, but he has a DP and his footsies seem pretty great. I looked at the changes and they seem really drastic (in his favor)... avalanche kick being overhead is insane? It's safe on block I think! LP shoulder starts up faster so it should help that "can't combo off mids randomly" thing. His DP is getting a big damage boost too, so now his combos will do even more.

    I dunno I think he's gonna be really good, lol. That low forward (with a DP to back it up) is already enough to make him a good character IMO.

    I don't understand Jin's changes. They made some of his stuff a bit too good IMO. Not the end of the world because good characters are fun, but people will be complaining about him I think.

    Eh, you can 2-touch if you have meter building and damage gems (and your opponent does as well) but if your opponent plays a tank with 3 defense gems, you won't be 2-touching him. Basically your opponent can decide if he wants to turn it into a defensive battle or not (just like other FGs). Unfortunately some of the defense gems are too good IMO, I think they're nerfing some though.

    Don't think rolls are overnerfed... if anything, they're undernerfed. You'll always be able to block out of a roll though, so there's probably no way for people to OS you with an attack if you roll away from a jumpin. It's probably a good way to encourage meaties, with a nice safety catch against insane OSes.

    Loop combos in SFxT look flashy but I think they're pretty useless in real matches except to wear out an opponent's gem or the clock. I like the look of most of the tag combos in this game.

    holy fuk i approve 1000000%

    nothing quite as infuriating as a keep away projectile that sends you flying up and backwards and covers that motion. raven was one of the games worst timeout offenders by far
  • Nos99Nos99 Science Scrub Joined: Posts: 4,652
    Yeah I dunno what they are doing with Jin.. He wasn't the worst offender but I also didn't think he needed to get buffed like that. He will probably be the new guy to hate right off the bat lol.

    Its probably because of the capcom thing of just flat out wanting certain characters to be good I dunno. .

    EDIT: Did anyone else watch that SFxT video where Jibbo has a gem loadout that acrtivates in one combo, and then gives him back +3 bars of meter?

    Apparently it lets him do a 5-bar combo or some crazy shit? :looney:

    That's the one big part of SFxT that I feel hasn't really been opened up at all... DEM GEMS

    Most of those gems are the paid DLC gems, too. Lolololol.

    And I'm so glad I decided to start learning Lars. Honestly I'm not very impressed with his combo damage at all currently, hence my appreciation for the damage buffs. And I would've been happy with just his EX qcb+K being an overhead, now every version of it is. It already gives you enough frame advantage to link into a full combo, now it's just completely insane. Yeah, he's pretty much secured on my team.

    Now I just need to solidify an anchor. Jin's cool but I don't like the way he flows. Jack is a potential option, or I might stick with King, but Dudley is looking insanely good playing around with him now... I need to look at his 2013 changes. As it currently stands, his walk speed is crazy. I normally don't notice things like this and it caught me off guard, it's that fast.

    Hey guys. Popping in with another non-SF game. I know, but you can just ignore it if you are not interested.

    Anybody here like racing games? If so, you should get this:

    http://store.steampowered.com/app/8600/

    I've just been playing it and holy shit, such an awesome racing sim! You should all get it and we should race. It's only $0.89 right now. Or you can get the bundle with the expansions for $5.09 like I did. I am not shitting you. If you like racing at all, you gotta try this game. It's a 5 year old game, so it doesn't take a beast of a pc to run it. Graphics are a little dated, but you do not really notice because the feeling of driving in it is too awesome. Very realistic feeling.

    Oh, and happy new year!
