So I was having a pretty good run yesterday on ye olde XBL; not exactly winning everything but putting up a good fight even against opponents with four times the GP. Even got a few “GG!” messages, which was a first for me.
A few times, I found myself wishing I’d been recording the match. Not because I was completely trouncing the other guy, or because my play in general is at all worth making public, but because of little moments I wanted to savour, like, say:
Having a Claw with just a sliver of life left and a full ultra-meter, sitting crouched in the opposite corner, just waiting for me to be stupid enough to toss a full-screen kikouken, giving him a chance to unleash hell. So I hobble up and down a bit, faking it, and sure enough the guy was on such a hair-trigger that he ultras into my waiting (read: blocking) arms, only to die under the loving ministrations of approximately 9000 kicks to the face.
Imagining the incredulous look on the face of a cocky, taunt-happy Sagat-player - who’d beaten the snot out of my poor Chun in a previous match - as he mid-screen ultras to try and chip down the last pixel of health I have left, only to watch me split-second-backdash just out of range of the first knee and lob him flat onto his face (FTW) as he comes sailing down.
And my personal favorite exchange of the night:
Guile (who totally kicked my scrawny lil’ butt in the first and third round): "BRING IT!"
Chun: (far HK to the face, which dizzies -> walk up, c. FP, HK Legs, MK Legs, EX Legs) “Gomen ne!”
What about you guys? What brought a smile to your face, recently?
