reg me up for dat 4, dat four, dat foh and sthd and whats an arcana heart 2

for realz i’m bringin it


#3

Where do you come up for the names for these things!?? :\

I’m in for SF4, HD Remix, Arcana Hearts 2

I"ll bring my equipment per usual. I will also try not and lose pot money this time.

Nagata I’ll do HD Remix again and you can look over my brackets this time as a double check. :3

Can I make a suggestion that since there are only 3 games running this time, we can have more stations for CASUAL GAMES!!

ie: RE5, NHL 09, A3, anything multiplayer!!! Or if you want to kick it old school: NES: Blades of Steel, Tecmo Super Bowl, Super Dodgeball. We can even use the 13" commodore monitor in the front!!! It is just nice to have something to do while we wait between games!


#4

If we have the setup we had today then we’ll need 4 stations for tourney games and then the last one we can cycle casual games on. If we could add one more TV it’d really open things up for casual games. I’d personally love to see a Madden 2009 tourney with shortest quarters possible if anyone else is down.

I’ll probably try out arcana heart 2. Somebody will have to explain how to play that game before hand tho.

It is May 2nd so exams will be over for me.

Can I grab a ride from somebody? I’ll pay for gas or parking or w/e.

Btw, I strongly encourage anyone who enjoys GG or TvC to give AH2 a try.

Think of it as TvC without Karas, infinites, or other broken shit. :razz:

In AH2, you have 4 attack buttons (A, B, C, E) and a “homing” button (D, or S in the US AH version). The D button is the thing that really differentiates Arcana Heart from other games.

It has a lot of important uses:

  1. Movement:
  • Fly towards your opponent very fast. (hold D)
  • Invincible dodge. (press back + D)
  • Change your trajectory in the air. (press any direction + D)
  1. Homing cancels (like Roman cancels or Baroque):
  • Cancel almost any normal, special, or super. (press any direction + D after hit or block)
  • Cancel almost any Arcana special or super. (press any direction + D)
  1. Guard cancels:
  • Cancel any block stun. Can move you forwards or backwards. (press any direction + D during block stun)

All of the above consume homing bars (the 3 bars above your super metre). Homing bars refill for free whenever you’re not doing a combo.

Basically, if you see something and don’t know wtf just happened, chances are the guy pressed D. :razz:
