  • Almost stole one from Binchang but choked. Feel like I'm getting better as I progress. :) PC grind has been giving me good sets I wouldn't get on PS4. Hopefully in due time I can make top 32 in a tourney.
    Played TTT1 on an emulator today. It was so much different from T7. I enjoyed it a lot, though I forgot everything.

    PS2. I wish I could stream it but I don't wanna risk anything. Got 4 & 5 working as well.

    I managed to get the PS3 HD version working (besides the lag on majority of the stages) on my end.

    I'm working on the PS3/360 next. I wanna try out DOA 4 and such from that time and see what was up.
    Was tied for 49th in the 2nd real week of ICFC season. Still drowned in pools but much better than week 1. But ngl, I miss playing Hwoarang in tournaments.
    Tekken 7 Season 4 ranked motto: When in doubt, quit it out.

    Tekken ranked is so bad man. Tekken ranked is what happens when a game is made for people who don't like the game. Why bother playing and grinding when players can just shortcut the experience with hacks, plugs, during the game frame data and the devs do nothing about it except cater to them more.

    It even worse cause this isn't even a super hard tekken to play casually. T5 was way worse. Now, you have armor moves, Rage comeback mechanics, characters that can almost move for you, all over the place balancing, moves that hit at range 3, crazy CH's and it's still not enough to keep players from shortcutting the experience. It's super frustrating.
    Playing on PC vs PS4 feels like night and day the more I play both. I'm kinda glad I made the switch. I just gotta hope for a better GPU soon.

    Yeah, people have told me the same when at events that have had both PS4 and PC. It's like you go from a few hours on PC then jump to PS4 and all of a sudden you're playing an entirely different game.

    I felt that way with TFC in 2019. The only thing was after, because I still wasn't on PC yet, I just got back on PS4 like nothing was different. But playing back to back on that joint, execution on games feels much different. Hopefully 2021, PC becomes more the standard.

    @Giannola True. The market is rough right now. Hopefully soon though everything will be on the money. I do think the GPU's solid. Just thinking through improvement options as time progresses.
    I finally got all my stuff to work!! I realized to connect the HDMI to GPU and not motherboard. If anyone wants games:

    Got my PC up and running. But optimizing games rn is a huge struggle w/ AMD. Only got Tekken and Left 4 Dead working. SF's super slow frame rate wise and DOA just shuts off after like 30 seconds.

    That's very weird, 5 should run on a potato. Try uninstalling the Intel Graphics driver as well and set the PC on the High performance power plan: Control panel->Power Options.

    Keep trying, its worth it. im working late but if you want i can try to help in realtime over discord or something. Ypu might want to hit up the fsd discord as well theres a lot of pc players in there as well who have alot of knowledge, including the big boss himself, mr ponton

    Will do. My apologies. Was playing an online tourney. I'll need the assistance. Still struggling. Just lemme know whenever you can. But much is appreciated to y'all @Giannola & @Seigen for the patience.
    After much essay writing for 2 days, about 28 pages much, I am finally finished for the semester. I have to stop procrastinating. This weekend, I should be back on my gaming grind.
    I've been seeing this a bit more and it makes very little sense to me: Why do people think hitbox or controllers of that kind's considered cheating and should be banned? If it allows you to play the game solid, as would a pad or stick w/o altering the game or how to play the game, then idk why the complaints.

    It allows you perform commands that you couldn't be able to perform on controller pads or arcade sticks. They can allow for more "inputs" relatively at once over those two more traditional controller options.
    T..J. Bernard
    T..J. Bernard
    I'ma play devil's advocate for this situation only in regards to the hitbox itself. The cross up though should be banned. That's overkill to me. But in this case, I can argue that some people say some inputs on hitbox isn't the most comfortable to do, crouch dashing, full circle, 720's etc for example. Not saying Hitbox doesn't allow for easier execution. It does.
    T..J. Bernard
    T..J. Bernard
    But I think that's the point of the hitbox, without for example, Ryu's izuna drop turning into a 6t, 8t, and 2t input. The only other point I'd make is it was accessible (until covid). People I see do have the hitbox so there was opportunity to capitalize on it. With that said, I do think hitbox should be adjusted. But not banned. The crossup though is like having shoes with automatic jump over the rim springs.
    Ngl the more I've been playing Granblue, one aspect that's underrated to me is the soundtrack. Listen to Yggdrasil, Beelzebub, Ares, Avatar, Bahamut (2nd phase), Narmaya, etc's theme and trust me you can get FF, AoT, KH, Smash vibes. Granblue's tracks are mostly on the money.

    The music in GBVS is excellent. Beelzebub's theme is legit. The artists, composers for GBVS are related to FF if I'm not mistaken.
    Ghost of Tsushima should've won. If you're an award show and you're awarding the BEST games both socially and critically, there's no reason why Ghost or Doom shouldn't have won. Congrats to TLoU2. It's not a bad game. In fact it's solid.

    Nioh got robbed. Doom definitely got robbed. Got no notable awards. My issue with TLoU2 isn't that the game sucks. It's not a bad game, contrary to popular belief. And I do think it deserved some awards. But GOTY, Best direction, best performance, best sound, best narration? Like I can think of 10 games that were way better previous years and didn't sweep like this, including Uncharted 4.
    T..J. Bernard
    T..J. Bernard
    This year was stacked with high quality games for TLoU2 to just be sweeping the competition and on top of it all, it's a game that majority didn't like as much. Like if critics like it but the people don't, sorry that's not GOTY material. You don't put 1-1 and make it 2 somehow. The player's vote reflected that hugely.

    To be fair, a lot of people dislike TLOU2 for political reasons over disliking it based on quality, i.e. the equivalent of "review bombing". But yeah, TGA was sucking off TLOU2 a lot yesterday. Let's see how it goes next year when next gen games will possibly find their stride.
    My PC stuff arrived!!! Once my semester ends, gonna build that joint and gonna have some fun with the FG's, emulators, Halo, Left 4 dead, etc.

    Also dove into Hwang stuff, he's pretty tight. Haven't tried him online yet or anything, but once next week comes, I'll try some ranked SC. I liked the story stuff also. SC can hold the W in regards to story stuff.
    I love the feeling when you play good sets and you feel like you're executing with characters better and it shows. Still ways to go w/ Mishima's, Jin, Kazumi, and Kuni, but it's a joy to see progress for me.

    I just wish I could carry that to MK, SF and DBFZ. But maybe in due time. But I think for now I might truly grind Tekken, MK, and Soul Cal for the remainder of the year.
    FINALLY!!!!! I've waited too long for this dude to come back. And he looks tight. Finally got a reason to play SC.

    Seong Mi-Na wasn't bad. I do like her as a character and she's similar to Kilik. She's solid but wasn't for me during the time I played SC VI (Season 1). Maybe now I would like her as I do like the fundamental style. But the closest character to whom I was looking for at the time was Maxi. But much of the time I felt like a button masher and I didn't know much of what he was doing.
    T..J. Bernard
    T..J. Bernard
    Some people say Xianghua but she's not for me either. Xianghua/Hwang for me feels like if I was to try to go Ling in Tekken or Helena in DOA compared to Hwoarang and Rig.
    Force_of_Nature
    Force_of_Nature
    Yeah, Maxi has good buttons that just "flow" into each other. In lag he looks like a masher lol. Oh, yeah, surprised you don't like Xianghua, her style is somewhat similar to Yun Seong or Hwang.
    After some time, I finally purchased my first PC build. It's gonna be a learning process for me. But I'm hyped to learn more about PC gaming and hopefully, I can get some good games out of it as well.

    Custom. For now, working with i9 9900k CPU, AMD Radeon RX 5600 xt and 32 gb ram. I'll update the GPU hopefully in a year or sooner but I heard it does well for 1440p gaming and such and it'll last me at least up to 2-3 years.
    Seigen
    Seigen
    5600XT is very good for 1080p, but it's at the limit for 1440p gaming. If playing fighters at 1440p you need to make sure you're not dropping under 60fps during matches.
    T..J. Bernard

    I'll take that into consideration. Thanks man. I'll look into the configurations and the settings and setups. Hopefully everything arrives soon.
    Week 1 of ranked was a success. Mishima's and Kazumi made green and so did Kuni. Was a lot harder than when the game 1st came out but that was when I was Hwoarang and Hwo's harder to handle than the others. Hopefully week 2 can be solid as well.

    On a sidenote, I played some DOA after some time and I actually had fun. I became Omega free now. But it's all good. And lobby discussions over the state of DOA and what went right/wrong helped me develop a better mindset on what to hope for in the future.

    i think people have gotten better overall online, and used to the mishima's maybe that's why your had harder time this time around. Kuni is still new her tools should still get some people unaware. I am learning kuni myself, as for doa one can only hope they learn and get better lol. That's me being optimistic as usual haha.

    Congrats dude. Good luck with further training.
    After about 2 weeks of Season 4, My first impressions are simple: Online's solid. Kuni's a great DLC character, but Tekken's balances and Meta is still awful.
    T..J. Bernard
    T..J. Bernard
    I think by this balancing and meta, they definitely coming up with Tekken x Street Fighter next. By the way they balancing everything so that players can keep swinging with no repercussion, it's definitely turning out to be that kind of game. If that's the case I can only hope for VF to be good.
    Kunimitsu feeling solid so far. Hopefully later I can test her out. But compared to the other legacy and dlc, she feels good to play.

    Update: Day 1: I think Kunimitsu is good tier. Her range isn't great to me so far, so at range 2 it can be a struggle to really control neutral vs like Fahk, Jin, or Leroy for example. But I think she has solid pokes, her mix-up games good, and she punishes really hard. I'll look more into her as this week goes. But overall, I think she has Noctis fundamentals and a mix of Ling, Master Raven, and Yoshi mix-up.
    Season 4 day 1 is 50/50. I love the online stuff. WiFi indicator is the biggest W for me. But the balances are all over the place yet again. I'll give it a bit more.

    My hope is that we get crossplay on the next part of season 4. Should this rollback be fire, I think it's a good time to implement it.
