    not that i know anything about the tournament but i was under the impression that both saturday and sunday would be straight sf4, all day, in order to get all the matches done

    they have ... 28 FT7s to do, at a conservative estimate of 30 minutes per match, without even counting down time, that's hard to do in 2 days

    Haha, I guess Josh is right about taste because to me they are the worst of the bunch.

    I'm not wrong about SF3 though. It's awful. Josh your opinion is wrong, nyah!

    Yeah whatever, Johnny B. Goodgames. Go play Marvel 3 some more.

    I decided i want to play all final fantasy games in order (prequels and sequels get pushed to their respective position... FF4 -> FF4 Interlude -> FF4: The After Years, before FF5 etc) over 2015.

    Finished FF1 over the weekend, dreading japanese FF2 with its wonky ass leveling system.. hnnghh

    Lol. Nice. Is that your new year's resolution?

    Will you be playing the side FF's as well like Mystic Quest / Crystal Chronicles / Dissidia etc? Also don't forget about FFXII: Revenant Wings and make sure you have a bottle of Advil handy when you go through FFXIII 1-3.

    I have Mystic Quest on the list but not Crystal Chronicles/Dissidia/Revenant Wings/Tactics Advanced/Legends/Chocobo etc... theres too many spinoffs that i don't want to bother with.. maybe after i finish the main games.

    What i have on the list is:
    Final Fantasy I
    Final Fantasy II
    Final Fantasy III
    Final Fantasy IV
    Final Fantasy IV - Interlude
    Final Fantasy IV - The After Years
    Final Fantasy V
    Final Fantasy Mystic Quest
    Final Fantasy VI
    Final Fantasy VII: Crisis Core
    Final Fantasy VII
    Final Fantasy VII: Dirge of Cerberus
    Final Fantasy Tactics
    Final Fantasy VIII
    Final Fantasy IX
    Final Fantasy X HD
    Final Fantasy X-2 HD
    Final Fantasy XII
    Final Fantasy XIII
    Final Fantasy XIII-2
    Final Fantasy Lightning Returns

    Hey Canada Cup guys I heard that GGXrd may be getting moved to Saturday instead of Friday this weekend. Can someone confirm one way or another?

    Yeah we were weighing the option and talked to Les a little bit about it. Ultimately we decided to push Xrd later in the day Friday and allow on site registration, and due to the venue giving us an upgrade on our space, are allowing BYOC all day Friday and Saturday instead. This close to the event it's not fair to the players coming from out of town who booked off work to play Friday to bump a game into Saturday.

    All the updates are right here:

    you're gonna have to basically do a game every 2-3 weeks to finish that list, that's a big commitment, good luck

    if you turn off your OCD to get all the chests/grind for levels, you can probably finish each game in under 40 hours

    Yeah i'm not going to 100% them all thats for damn sure, i'll grind enough to beat the game and finish it. If it takes longer then whatever, i'll still finish the list!

    FF1 is down, hopefully i can do FF2 this week lol

    le sigh, i guess PM's time is done

    guess it just goes to show, no matter how good a game is, it doesn't matter one fucking iota if it's not mainstream

    Jebailey is a huge smash fan and a big supporter for the smash community so nobody should take his decision to remove Project M as a means to promote only main stream titles. He made a post on the Smash Boards explaining himself in more detail and that SRK article should have included this.
    CEOJebailey

    Jebailey here. I just wanted to chime in after everything and I have no problems being upfront with the community since CEO will always get its biggest support from the community directly.

    I loved PM last year(Minus the coaching that took forever between sets). Working with the PM team to create a CEO Stage was flat out amazing and those guys deserve all the credit in the world, modded game or not, for putting so much passion into it.

    I have yet to have any direct interaction with Nintendo for CEO at all. Would I love to talk to them about some sort of support, of course. I'm a Nintendo fan boy since I was 4 years old. Any time official support comes to a tournament in the past few years it's helped the games featured. However the community itself supported CEO in a huge way itself between Melee and PM so hosting it is no problem at all especially with @RagingCherry and the UCF Gaming Knights doing such a kick *** job.

    From a marketing standpoint, all their focus is on Smash 4 now that's it's out for a bit. Who knows if it'll last past this year. I just know to keep PM alive for the fans, streaming it or hosting it at any big event could cause issues such as having the game taken down for good. Not trying to stir things up but I just want to clear the air that the decision isn't really ours to make otherwise I'd be up for hosting it. Although I was honest when I said hosting 3 different Smash Games at an event with more than just Smash would definitely be a challenge.

    So I'm sorry to the Diehard PM fans that your game isn't featured this year. I try to please as many people as I can with CEO and feature as much as I can without going overboard but for the most part it's something I'd rather not deal with worrying about it getting shut down right before the event happens and what not. Just cause one or 2 events aren't hosting a game doesn't mean stop playing it. If your local community plays it, keep having fun and enjoying it.

    With that said It'll be my pleasure to host the Smash Community again this year and hope to see you guys there. If anything changes for the better on the PM front I won't hesitate to talk about it.

    i'm not blaming jebailey for it... i mean, melee is still the most popular title (i kind of wish it wasn't, there's only so much i can watch those 5 characters), and smash 4 is the new hotness. smash games tend to take a long time to run, so it makes sense he's limiting himself to 2.

    it just sucks that PM is always going to be the least supported of the three games, despite it being in my opinion the best. it'll always be the fastest to be dropped, nintendo doesn't want it to exist so it's always hanging on by a knife's edge at any event nintendo knows about.

    the fact that the wii doesn't hook up to hdmi makes it hard to run as well. i wish they could figure out how to get the wii U gamecube adapter to work with project M on the wii u... that would probably help its longevity (the game does run on wii U, you just have to use wiimotes). but hey, whoever heard of peripherals not working properly on next gen systems, am i right fellas???

    i just wish we could all play a good fucking fighting game that we all like instead of having to deal with so much bullshit around companies being retarded because they don't understand a bloody thing about their own game (nintendo, capcom) and peripherals not working. i'm really sick of it.

    The online was initially very crappy but they patched it and it seems better now. And most people seem to be playing on PS3 anyway (even though it's ugly and you're all sinners).

    She's not playing a Japanese woman, she's playing an interchangeable cyborg body that happens to be piloted by a brain that was maybe born and grew up in Japan, or maybe was just programmed to think it was.

    And read that way, it makes perfect sense for the part to go to her, since a popular cyborg body will probably be designed to look like a woman a large portion of the world's male population finds attractive.

    Appropriate that it's the same studio that made Shrek. Guess it can be called Ghost in the Shrek.

    I also got it on PS4 so I could play on my HDCRT in full 1080. Then I realised that the PS3 version can also output at 1080, and the PS4 version doesn't have CRT scaling options while the PS3 port does, welp. So I'm back on PS3.

    Gameplay is 100% the same on both systems, as long as you keep PS3 in Processing Mode (removes a couple of background characters on some stages).
    I see in frames IRL

    i agree. daigo really tore it up in the latest topanga. it's hard to imagine him failing to adapt over that many games.

    did you see that article on eventhubs where they translated a sako interview after topanga A league? he basically said daigo was unstoppable and he felt like he had no chance of ever winning

    i don't think anyone can beat daigo in a ft7 if he has time to prepare, especially with an explosive character like eryu and daigo's great defense

    the real question is, supposing pr rog qualifies, what position will he get?

    he's capable of beating most of the field in a FT7, but will he? maybe he'll beat kazunoko or xiao hai? i don't think he can beat luffy, snake eyez, daigo, xian... maybe he can beat pepeday, they're both read-heavy players
