  1. This is one addictive game, and I love it. As far as gameplay, the only thing that might be a nice addition is, as someone already said, shooting while in midair. Seems unnatural that you can't. Otherwise beautiful. The graphics are an awesome combination of modern and retro, I really appreciate how it was made with 3D models, watching Iji turn around to deliver a swift kick to a teleporting Assassin looks and feels great. I already read the known issues so I know that it's already being looked at, but holy damn do I get massive slowdown from basically anything. Like, every boss fight (I beat them all but the final boss) results in slowdown which literally brings the game to about half to 1/3 speed. The final boss is about 1/4 speed, to boot. Despite this I'm still willing to fight because it's just awesome. Thanks so much for showing this to me, I foresee playing through it once on every difficulty, then again and again 'till I get every unlockable. Ha.
  2. oh jolly good, how very official this is now.
  3. Huh, alright. RR is probably the better choice over all then. Awesome. Kaillera, via emulation. Which reminds me, Kawaks as always, Metz?
  4. Impressive. Like the rest, I didn't expect the guitar, but it didn't feel gratuitous. Awesome shift. Also, the entire project is choice. Great work, Bad Dudes. And I was just thinking I don't hear enough of Sagat... Ha, never again.
  5. I dunno, although I admit it can be boring to fight the same person with the same character over and over, I feel like people should do whatever they want with the character- even from the select screen, you're already striking your colors as far as potential strategies go. If someone picks Ryu again and again, a good player should know what to expect after fighting him for several rounds (and a great player will know what to expect before the first round even starts ;P) But anyway, you have to be able to use any given character at least twice. Since this tournament is open to people of all skill, not everyone can really be expected to play a minimum of 5 characters competitively. At least being able to use a character twice allows for you to have one or two mains and a pinch hitter in case you need them. Also, Normal Speed is what you're thinking? It can only help my game, so I'm in favor. Heh. Anyway, think there should be a handy-dandy list of people who are officially "in"? Perhaps give an estimated date/time so people can be more sure of whether they'll be able to get in on it. Oh, and is this going to be Round-Robin or Elimination style? I know we used to do RR and I guess it seems most fair, but Elimination seems better suited to doing this quickly.
  6. So if we did the "do it all in one night" thing, would it be a weekend, and would it be set so that each person has a set match at a set time and not showing is a forfeit? Or is it like before where when you see someone online, you get a hold of 'em?
  7. I rescind my original vote of SFA/KOF and instead join the Samsho boat, although I vote for SamSho 4 specifically.
  8. I wholeheartedly endorse this idea. Also, I vote KOF (any of 'em) or SFA3 AIM = fiercekashikoi

    Sony PSP

    Hey guys, I posted on this thread a while back asking about PSP modding, specifically firmware downgrades. Just today, I decided to poke around and see what I could find, and if there's been anything recent. Sadly, I couldn't find anything that pertains to me via google but it might just be me looking in the wrong places. So I'd like to see if anyone here knows: Has a PSP firmware downgrader been made for Firmware 3.52 or higher that does not require a pandora's battery or, ideally, much money at all? My current situation is this: PSP Firmware 3.52 (haven't updated since Dracula X Chronicles), a 2GB memory stick, no pandora's battery and, if I can at all avoid it, no inclination to obtain one. I'm sure that at this point not much will be done but I figured I'd make a last ditch effort to find out what I can and at least know if I'm going to be able to do this or not. So, anyone have any advice or information? Or at least a place where I could get some up-to-date info? Thank you in advance.
  10. I, too wonder what Luigi's is supposed to mean... I figured it might have had to do with ghosts or something but then it just turned into... a bad acid trip, followed by falling off the edge of floating platforms, as any worth-while drug trip does... Otherwise, I thought the Final Smashes were by and large fairly decent, personally. Some were just dull (Ike's FS was made out to be a lot better, but... eh. I would have gone with more fire and explode-y-ness.) Olimar's was awesometastic though, especially when the crowd starts cheering. That was epic. Also, LOL Arek.
  11. OH GOD OH GOD I'M SORRY I HAVEN'T BEEN ON IN LEIK A WEEK. Seriously, I need to get some more games in, I refuse to continue sucking so bad. If you see me don't think twice about asking me for a game. Merry christmas.
  12. You gotta be kidding me. Worst fears come true.... I hope to God Capcom doesn't absolutely wreck this (more). Or am I just stuck in the past and fear change? I think I have legitimate fears.... The graphics don't look super-pretty, either. If they HAVE to make it 3D (since I guess they fold like a piece of paper to popular (ie. moron) demands), could they at least make it nice looking 3D? Also, if the roster isn't >50% new, seriously, I will have a fucking fit. Not a fit of fucking (too bad!), but "fucking" being the descriptor of how pissed I will be. But dammit, it's Street Fighter. I'll buy it even if it sucks, hard. Screw you Capcom. :\ (I'm so conflicted!)
  13. I've had this song for a while, and I've always liked it quite a bit. After a few months of not hearing it once, I just turned the song on repeat and plugged in my good speakers for a few minutes. Great song! The flute (or whatever instrument that is, I haven't a clue) at 0:30 to about 1:00 sounds fantastic, I really like how you switched up the main instrument throughout the song. I also dig the shift between higher-energy to kind of elegant-sounding and then back at about 2 minutes. Good stuff.
  14. Whose ears does this grate on? Sure not mine, and apparently, not on most other peoples'. I don't know none of yer fancy technical stuff, but I lurve this tune, it really feels like it has a lot of energy. Especially starting at 1:40 and going on to that build-up at about the 2 minute mark, it's just a fantastic "pump-up" song, and it carries through to the end. The ending, too, is great. The chorus is a nice addition where it's used, really brings those parts out. I wish you'd post moar leik this, Gecko D: Sounds great.
  15. I'm in, of course. AIM is fiercekashikoi (or if you prefer, dividebypeeps)
