got around to watching that GF, andrew.
found out some new tech I’m going to have to try out. thought the hyenas were garbage, but I see their usefulness now.

for the corner combo, it’s usually cartwheel, fwd+1,3 | fwd+1,3 | 1,1 | play doctor
looks like he tossed in maybe 1,1,2 then play doctor. i’m gonna have to experiment.

love the setups with bud & lou after a mid screen launch & jump 2, jump 2 haha.

also, i’m sure you’ve been getting some swag from the hell’s satans. we grinded the boss battle yesterday and won it 3 times
that swamp thing limited multiverse with marvel assists was awesome!!!

I didn’t get a chance to check anything yet. Imma get some friends to join up so if some weird names apply accept them ;)!

How did the assists work? I really want to try that. Is it the stance button to call assist?

in those special multiverse ones the command is usually a direction + stance, or simply a direction on the right analog. that’ll be a pain for stick players haha. but there aren’t many.

and yeah, i’ll approve them. the more we have in the guild the more lewt we get

What I don’t get about Injustice is how there are intro quotes, clash quotes, but there are no victory quotes. You’d think since they were willing to record thousands of lines of flavor dialogue, they would’ve put those in the game at last.

Cus everyone bitched about how long outros took in all their other games.

So now they’re like half a second long yet people still pause and restart match in tournament

Cold 5evr.

But I definitely need an alt lol. A lot of high level players starting to say he’s not that good (duh). If you get cornered by Cold you definitely deserve what’s coming. But he’s a ton a fun. And he’s not bad by any means… just has some real struggle match-ups.

I’ll probably wait for DLC to play an alt. I definitely want to try out Sub-Zero (Sliding under high projectiles and trades with ice ball should be rofl) and hopefully Starfire is fun.

Oh yeah. I really wanna learn Scarecrow but I don’t think he helps with my problem matchups

edit: uni posted in the calgary injustice facebook group that they have i2 on Thursday nights.

… I sure wish gear moves were made tourney viable :(. Cold’s shoulder charge is so good haha

So apparently the MvCI roster is confirmed to be super ultra omega disappointing and prepare yourself for how bad it is. Says it feels like SFV all over again.

28 character starting roster only. 10 characters left to reveal are returning from MvC3, 1 from MvC2 (basically confirmed to be Venom), and only 4 characters are brand new. Only 1 character left is female (so 3 out of 28?)

MvCI has less new characters than UMvC3 did, which was an update only 8 months in development, and they had to build assets from scratch where as MvCI reuses everything. Lol Capcom.

That escalated quickley… we know the roster now.

"Arthur
Chris
Chun-Li
Dante
Firebrand
Jedah
Monster Hunter
Morrigan
Nemesis
Ryu
Spencer
Strider Hiryu
X

Ant-Man
Captain America
Captain Marvel
Doctor Strange
Gamora
Hawkeye
Hulk
Iron Man
Nova
Rocket/Groot (this is how the character was named to me; I’m not sure if it’s just Rocket Raccoon with Groot assists or a redesigned character actually called Rocket/Groot)
Spider-Man
Thanos
Thor
Ultron"

and Venom as DLC right after Sigma, so they can gouge for their most requested characters…Shittiest roster since PSAS. Only thing I’m hype for on here is Nemesis.

Sounds fake to me.

Fucking horrible roster if it’s true. I’ll believe it when I see it.

Generic hunter instead of an actual monster from the games? Get fucking bent, Capcom.

Started playing some Overwatch at the coaxing of a friend.

Without wishing to sound too ungrateful… this game bites.

It’s so simple and easy that it’s boring. It’s watered-down TF2, a game that was already super casual, so to water a game like that down leaves you with basically nothing but water. The 9 characters of TF2 were divided into 20 or so odd characters in Overwatch, each only able to do one thing at a time, and have really rigid playstyles so they cannot be played in any other way (you can only play Roadhog as a tank, you can only play Bastion as defense, etc.) Not only does this cause hard counters to start cropping up, it’s also restrictive and really shallow. They took every feature from TF2 and took away the parts that made them interesting, and you have to make up your own rules in order to make it fun and challenging in any way.

Overwatch is the Candy Crush of FPS games.
