So, I’m actually keeping up with blogs now, isn’t that simply amazing? No? Well screw you guys too! Anyways, my big thing about today was 2DF, I cannot believe some of the shit I go through, after discussing with Shane last week about how 3S has so much BS in it, I can’t even stand playing the BS game online anymore with 2DF (GGPO is even worse for me).
You see, my quarrel is with the whole input lag, and now that I’ve got this weird mindset where I watch what I throw out and try to “counter” someone’s hit, so now it totally fucks my game up. For example, played against this dude who plays Ken religiously, I mean I sense his god damn fp. SRK when I jump in, yet I can never get the parry, then when I do, I tap the next one, I GET HIT?! WHAT THE FUCK HELL!? I also try to block after I parry the first one while on the ground, and BAM, still get stuffed. I finish up the match (lost 10-5) and I get my PS2 out and test out my parrying skills on that SRK, I feel like I’m doing the exact same motion as I did on 2DF, got my 2 hits and landed. Is it my nerves? No, normally my nerves hit me during tournaments and when I fight Duong or Shane.
Another example of BS in 3S (Yes I’m fully aware I just rhymed), is when I parry air to air, I expect to get some sort of “first attack” because I stopped your freaking j.fp or whatever Ken’s do in the air. Why is it then that I get thrown immediately as I land in front of you? I can now see why NG and 2I had the damn shoo away the player after a2a parries. Fuck that shit, I’m giving up on this 2DF crap, someone play me in ST offline or 3S offline, as I find myself to be a much better player. AUGH!
So in other gaming news/fun. I’m currently not playing my PS3 as it is with my brother. I don’t know if that was a good idea or bad idea, but considering that DMC4 got really repetitive and I don’t have an HDTV/LCD Monitor for Blu-Ray movies or other games, I think I’ll just wait until he’s done with it.
You guys have heard of Triumvir? Specifically for THIS (Note: Some of the banners they have are NSFW, it has nudity in it, like girl on girl on girl nudity)?! Let me tell you, I am making sure that I drop whatever it costs to get this jacket. Honestly I need one of these, because hoodies don’t keep you warm on cold autumn days, seriously. They have some other good stuff, but man, all sold out.
Gootecks has another podcast out, this time with special guest, Alex Valle. This one is only an hour long and he is apparently in the works of something with Ryan. Hopefully it’ll be good, have yet to listen to it fully.
So lets see, I noticed that SOCOM: Confrontation for the PS3 was released, and it’s only going for 60 bucks with the headset, not a bad deal if you ask me, but then again, that’s probably pretty normal. Now I don’t usually say this to many people, but back when SOCOM first came out for the PS2, I was all over that shit. I would stay up countless Fridays and Saturdays playing people online. I was pretty damn elite, with my own clan and everything. This new one kinda perks my interest. I’ll definitely have to put it on my “to rent list”. Once again I’ll mention that LBP has been delayed until this Friday or something for America, I will also put that down on my “to rent list”.
I have nothing to say about the 360 or the Wii, in all honesty, I don’t have either and I can’t play any of the exclusives, so can’t do dick all about it.
Just a thing about the future things we plan on doing with this group/site. As you all know we are entering the era of the podcast. It’s an interesting feature, since it’s pretty much talk radio about whatever you are interested in. It’s great isn’t? We want to do one eventually within the next few months/year. We’re currently researching on equipment and collaborating with the guys at NOLAG. The podcast is, of course, our last resort, we actually wanna get on UMFM with a university radio talk show, simply about games and such. So we’ll see what goes on with that.
Well that’s pretty much it for my blog this week, I believe we’re gathering this weekend to play a few games (ST, MvC2, maybe some CvS2, amazing that we haven’t touched 3S in about 3 weeks for these gatherings). Please check the forums for more information and don’t forget to post people. Later guys.
