#7

I’d like to sign up for SF4, HD Remix, and 3S.

Any chance we can get some SNK lovin’ in this tourney (e.g. KOF '98 Ultimate, KOF XI, or MOTW)? I’ll be more than happy to host them if needed.


#8

I’m sure I can make it though but sign me up for SF4 and HD Remix.

Edit: If someone can give me a ride who lives near me, I’d really appreciate it.


#9

You could sign me up for SF4 and HD Remix also, but I have no idea how get there. I have no car at all :frowning:


#10

Before moving forward with PS3 STHD, i think there needs to be a serious look at the difference between the performance of the ps3 and 360 versions.

There were a few comments amongst some players yesterday that the PS3 version seemed to have a little bit of lag (not sure if this was due to convertors or the actual game itself) I’m sure someone else will mention it but it’s worth being looked into.


#11

Vince; I will likely pop by POWNZ tomorrow (I have the day off) with my PS3 and do a comparison between their STHD on 360 and my PS3. The TV’s are side by side so comparison should be easy.

Shiek; I kept the game roster pretty limited this time around. We were spread a little thin at yesterday’s tournament leaving no option for using 2 TV’s for one game and what not when time became a factor. If I find everything can run great with these four games (which will be a staple because they’re new or in 3S’s case draw well) then we’ll open it up a bit. I’d like to add at least one new game each month like Fate Unlimited Codes or the upcoming Arcana Heart 2 so increase the diversity of play and players.

While on the subject of new games, we should touch on the old. The old being CvS2/MvC2/A3 and all the other old favourites. Simply put, I’m no longer running any of those tournaments on a monthly basis for the foreseeable future. There are enough new games that people could and in some cases should be playing that we no longer need older games to bolster the roster.


#12

3 of the top 5 finishers play on PSN so we might be “used to the lag” you are referring to (whatever it may be: converters, tv, etc?). The other 2 (JED and WB) don’t have either console and I don’t think they complained about any lag.

The converter belongs to Kymah and he was nice enough to donate it for everybody’s use during the tournament. YellowS4 and myself were able to play STHD with the converter before the tourney and didn’t notice any distinct “lag”. The PS3 was system of choice as I volunteered to bring my system in for use.

Nagata will be visiting pwnz at some point this week and he will do a comparison so let’s wait and see what he finds.

3s could have ended alot quicker if we didn’t run a shitty CvS1 tournament on the side. worst idea ever. Anyways there are only 5 TV stations at pwnz and we have 4 games coming up so even if we have 2 of each, we might not even have room to set up stations??


#13

Oh also, if there was one thing evidenced by the last tournament is that we really should have a proper supply of consoles & games. Third Strike could have ended a lot quicker with just a bit more foresight. Basically what I’m asking for is people to volunteer so we have 2 consoles and 2 games per game on the list. I know some people may not want to bring their next gen console but everyone has them by this point so it will be the norm regardless.


#14

SF4/TvC for sure.

Moar Guilty Gear pl0x. (Yes, I’m serious. No, I don’t expect it to get off the ground.)


#15

What’ll be the difference between 360 and PS3 if you’re doing local multiplayer?


#16

I didn’t notice any lag really. The main issues with the PS3 were the fact that resetting the controls were annoying to say the least. We go to options, change the control settings only to start the match and find out they’re still not set up properly…this was really annoying.

I also am used to the Xbox EX2 stick so it was a touch hard to adjust to using the PS sticks and even the Tekken sticks that I used to use a long time ago. This is just an issue I could probably take care of myself by getting my old Tekken stick off of Justin and just practice on GGPO or 2DF.

Other than that, well, I lost because I played really really badly and I have no excuse for that other than to practice better and be better prepared for the next tourney.

Oh yeah, and sign me up for SFIV, STHD and 3S. Probably not going to try TvC ever again until I can actually get my hands on a Wii and learn how to actually play the thing…:lol:

EDIT: More Castle Crashers plz.


#17

I’ll get back to you guys on this one…


#18

Hey, can you sign me up for SFIV and STHD.

Also, will I have to get a POWNZ membership or something in order to play?


#19

Not really sure if it will be useful, but I can bring my PS2. For Third Strike, and MvC2.

No not really, just wanted to put the Marvel players on tilt.


#20

Sweet, im in for this tourney. Hopefully i won’t be as hungover this time around
