Good luck with this


#3

I’m impressed that there’s enough demand to warrant a PFHD tourney. I used to be really into Puzzle Fighter and will do my best to tune into the stream.


#4

Holy crap Puzzle Fighter tourney! …

Holy crap! Jinrai! … one of the few people who could consistently kick my ass on PF =/.

But yeah, used to be really into PF… I quit because there was no competition… If there was again I’d totally pay PF over ST…


#5

I’ll be there


#6

yeah we threw it up op stream at a previous tournament and a bunch of us were having a shit load of fun. hate dead drops though. Like arcade one way better. plus i have trouble differentiating yellow and green.


#7

i am never riding in your car ever.


#8

PFHD has two major advantages over the arcade version:

  1. It has more than one character. Yes, Donovan is viable in the arcade version, but Ken is still many times better than him. IMHO PFHD has at least 5 viable characters: Akuma, Ken, Donovan, Chun-Li, and Ryu.
  2. Instant drops by pressing up. This was introduced in the Dreamcast version and adds a ton to the speed and flow of the game.

#9

That was random… Why did you suddenly bring that up?


#10

It’s a response to Majin’s post about liking the arcade version better.


#11

Letting the SFxT players know we’ll be allowing default gems


#12

I hate dead drop so much. My brain can’t think that fast.


#13

I used to love dead drop. cuz it made the pace of the game faster. But then I stopped playing, When I tried to get back into it, I couldn’t think fast enough either…

I think not having dead drop makes it more about strategy, and allows for people who are rusty to not to as badly…
