I mainly found this hilarious to watch them creating a Western XBox Live account to download western-only content, because I’ve done exactly the same thing in reverse to download Japan-only and USA-only content
It’s sad that there’s no real reason HDR isn’t out in Japan other than Capcom being so dumb. :sad:
Hmmm halfway into the playing, they turned off the hd reminx sprites in favor for the old ST sprites, and also turned on classic mode as far the audio. Wonder why they did that, unfortunately I don’t know any japanese.
as godlike as they are, I’m going to have to say that if they start playing US players right now at this particular time, they will have a really hard time or lose to us. Just because we had a 2 year head start and they haven’t adjusted to the new changes yet. after that grace period, lord knows how loop sided things will get in their favor.
actually, i don’t think that’s the case. at least the record doesn’t prove that. this was discussed before, if not for the “split” in the st/hdr community - we SHOULD have more people playing the game but some feel like “st or nothing”. when some people don’t play the game (good players), then the community here suffers since they are not giving any input and they aren’t adding anything to advance the game, especially since the game still has room to grow. the fact that top japan players actually made that video to show how to get HDR in japan, them playing it, and having fun - that definitely shows that growth/enjoyment for the game is still there. hopefully some top usa players who have sworn off HDR - after that video, will give it a 2nd look since some only seem to follow japan’s lead.
regarding us versus them in a game that’s been out for 2 years (where we had a head start on), daigo winning hdr for SCR, NCR, that recent canada event, and his hi placement at evo - the adjustment phase for them would be short. especially since the changes from st to hdr are minimal
