    roy was actually on waivers yesterday but the oilers couldn't claim him because they were at their max number of contracts, so they had to trade a piece away from him

    i don't think arcobello is a fantastic player or anything but i bet you he's gonna be a decent 3rd or 4th line player on an actually good team

    meanwhile, roy has been heavily on the decline and has switched teams a lot in the last year or so because he doesn't put forth much effort. i'm SURE he's going to put forth a ton of effort in an oilers jersey, though... making $1m/year and on one of the worst teams in the history of the nhl sounds like great motivation to start giving it your all every night

    Oilers were actually at 47 contracts, and woulda been at 48 if they kept Arco. I have no idea why they didn't claim him off waivers. Roy's interviews have been full of talk about how he can be a leader on this team and the team really needs it, so maybe he'll try to make a difference.

    Right now I am just mired in hopelessness. At least the Predators are crushing <3

    srs, any other Preds fans here?

    For so many years my main team was passable and my secondary team sucked, now my main team is the worst in history, and my secondary team scares people. Fucked up world, the NHL

    Agreed, the Red Wings are worthy of fandom no matter who you are. I just don't actively cheer for them.

    Pittsburgh Penguins were my favorite team as a child because i liked the letter "P". up until i moved to Calgary 15 years ago, only then did the Flames become my favorite team bumping the Penguins down to my second favorite team.

    The REmake is coming out Jan 20th already? I must have been living under a rock. I think 2015 may be the best year for games for me in the past decade. Bloodborne, MKX (!!!), REmake, Battlefront 3, Heavensward, Arkham Knight, MGSV, Mighty No.9, Mordheim.... So many things! Plus maybe Starfox, Zelda and Xenoblade on the Wii U, I guess. Expensive year...

    yea im gonna be getting remake the day of and playing through that thing even though ive already finished it like 10 times.

    i may even try legit speedrunning it too since you can do the whole game pretty quickly. i think the new control method will help for that even though it will feel almost like betraying an old friend because im so used to the tank controls now. you get a special rocket launcher if you do it under 3 hours but i think i managed it in around 2.30 or so.

    what are you guys doing for new years btw?

    Kung Lao is back as an old man yeeeah http://www.eventhubs.com/images/2014/dec/31/kung-lao-returns-mortal-kombat-x-old-man-finnish-gaming-magazine-reveals-2/

    Translation of his variations:

    The differences between Kung Lao's Tempest-, Buzz Saw- and Hat Trick -variations happen to be the biggest ones yet. With Tempest Kung Lao uses more spinning attacks and has the ability to set his hat to spin around him as a shield of sorts. In his Buzz Saw variation his hat is sharpened with razor blade edges and allows the player to control his hat throws more. Hat Trick is the most experimental of the three, because you can throw and call back your hat at any point you want. This keeps the opponent on their toes, because the hat can extend combos."

    So cool! One of them sounds like he has Vergil whirley swords, and another where he uses his hat like Miss Fortune's head.

    what is the likelihood that all fighters will basically have one style that is very clearly the best for their character?

    i can appreciate the attempt to diversify the character but i don't think it actually works all that much, in the end one style is pretty clearly the best

    That's pretty negative Nancy of you. The game has 75 characters minimum. Of course you'll have a top ten characters like every fighting game ever. Doesn't mean you can't have a ton of fun with the other characters and see tournaments won by "low tier".

    With how different the variations make each character it's literally like saying why would you play Blanka when you could play Yun. All sorts of reasons.

    It could end up as lopsided as Marvel at first, of course, but at least NRS will pay attention to the game. And they have a bunch of community members helping balance the game right now.
  • InfilInfil una catástrofe con una pelota de beisbol Joined: Posts: 8,628
    not being negative nancy, simply asking a question. in fact, i specifically worded my question to be as diplomatic as possible

    for example, in 3rd strike, how many characters are viable with more than one super? the answer i think is exactly two, unless i'm forgetting someone: ryu and makoto (and oro if you want to get into the low tiers).

    people pick different characters in fighting games because they have allegiances to them for whatever reason... i think that's less true of "styles". you might like kung lao and want to play him, but you're pretty likely to (eventually) just pick the style that works best for him, aren't you?

    Maybe? But the differences between variations are the same as the differences between Cammy and Decapre (a few shared normals and that's it). I dunno if giving them different names is the deciding factor.

    There's also talk of character lock tournaments where you switch variations between match ups, so they'd be good for that. The same character will even have different walk speeds and jump arcs etc depending on variation.

    Is Oro low tier? I thought he got bodyrocked by Chun but had a good spread otherwise. Also Dudley can more than one super

  • InfilInfil una catástrofe con una pelota de beisbol Joined: Posts: 8,628
    i think he gets rocked by a lot of the top tier but does okay against the mid tier, just like every mid tier character in 3rd strike

    I think you may be looking at it incorrectly. It has the chance to allow character loyalty (even to a mid-tier) to come first and counter picks / top tier to come second.

    "Grapple mode" Kano might prove to be stronger than the two other variations overall but the option of picking a different 'groove' of Kano to deal with potentially bad matchups sounds promising. It basically will make character matchups more fuzzy overall.

    Hopefully MKX will be closer to Injustice than MK9 in terms of balance but will probably be like all other NRS games where certain characters will just never compete no matter what groove they are in (lol Joker / Kano lol)

    Yes. As a Baraka player I am ecstatic that I get three chances at having a Baraka that isn't terrible (Baraka is always terrible. Him and Sheeva are basically the Dans of the series)

    Seems for online play you pick a clan from MK lore (Black Dragon, White Lotus, Special Forces, Lin Kuei, Brotherhood of Shadows) to represent and it changes your menus and stuffs. Can't wait to hear more about how that works... and the Challenge Tower changes every hour. Neat. This could be amazing or could all be ruined by a poop netcode. If good, Black Dragons 4 lyfe. (MK9 has the worst netcode in history, while Injustice was about as passable as SF4's)

    those are my thoughts exactly. whereas the different supers on 3s is only a single move that is different, this is basically all of the characters special moves that are diifferent which will (hopefully) make a big difference if your character gets a bad matchup. the less characters you have to learn the better.

    see, now this is a cool idea

    even just changing colors on the menu stuff is rad, wish more fighting games gave a crap about customization

    take a hint from dota, fg developers, people like to customize stuff and they'll probably even pay you money for it, and i'm not just talking dumb accessories for your character

    I've already been thinking of that long before this.

    I know people don't like me talking about my game, but I had the idea to have multiple HUD/announcer options. That's what my post from earlier in the year involving the animal combo accolades was about... animals & nature is one of the HUD/announcer themes

    Also, if there's a game out there that has better dialogue than Symphony of the Night, I don't want to know about it.
  • evilweevleevilweevle Xbox GT : MrFossy Joined: Posts: 4,275
    lol none of that makes ANY sense whatsoever.

    pretty sure the day when smash bros doesnt sell well will never happen. that game doesnt even need to be good and the masses will still buy it cos its got mario in it.
