How are you all spelling MK3 so incorrectly...

Third Strike is an excellent game, definitely the most technical street fighter and it didn't have silly comeback mechanics and rewarded players for actually being good at the game rather then being hit (you can probably tell but I don't like comeback mechanics).

I also love how third strike gave you different choices in supers, all of which had there pros and cons, and parrying really helped to make the game more dynamic.

Have to agree with everything you said, however, its a shame that some of the supers are literally trash compared to the other ones. Granted, Some characters have some pretty balanced supers that makes it really tough to decide, others however they basically should only have one super to choose from.

#1 reason why I don't seek out fighting games anymore. Have to say with shame that I've never tried third strike
This is my sandvich. There are many others like it, but this one is mine. My sandvich is my best friend. It is my life. I must master it as I must master my life. Without me, my sandvich is useless. Without my sandvich, I am useless. I must eat my sandvich true. I must shoot straighter than my enemy, who is trying to kill me. I must shoot him before he shoots me. I will. Before lunch I swear this creed: my sandvich and myself are defenders of my country, we are the masters of our enemy, we are the saviors of my life. So be it, until there is no enemy, but sandvich. Om nom.

It is!

Also, Skullgirls is out properly in a mere two days! (Yes, you will be able to download at LAN.)

But that's not the most important thing right now.

Right now, the really important thing is that in a matter of mere hours, the mighty Divekick will be out to buy on PS3, Vita and Steam!

Here's the trailer!

SPEAKING OF DIVEKICK, how many of you have it at the moment? I'm thinking about organising a tournament. I'm also wanting to organise the preliminaries for the Street Fighter Tournament so we get that done before Ultra comes out. So yeah, if you're interested, let me know.

As great as divekick are making it out to be, I'm personally not interested in buying it :(

However, I'm completely down for a SF4 tournament :D!

Ok everyone, listen up!


I've set up a round robin tournament to determine the seeds for the main Street Fighter tournament. I know, it looks big and scary and like a pain in the arse but we only have to do this ONCE so let's just grip our teeth and think of England.


It is important to check that your name is on the participant list.
I took all the names from the ranking spreadsheet I made a while ago and that, at the time, was everyone interested in playing. You MUST contact me if you either no longer want to be on the list or want to be added to the list.

Everyone also needs to let me know what their current gaming habits are as I don't want to set round deadlines that won't be met. We could power through this in a week if people are able to play a couple of matches a day or a couple of weeks if people play four or more matches a week.

Whilst there is a set of rules that you guys can see once the tournament 'Starts', the one things to keep in mind are:

A Game consists of 2 Rounds
Whoever wins 2 Rounds wins the Game
The first to win 3 Games wins the Match

Tournament link: http://challonge.com/ufs3exn7

Any questions?

(Also, sign up for an account on Challonge because it makes things infinitely easier. When you've done that, tell me your username so I can properly invite you to the tournament)

Needs timer! Literally no reason to ever not use it, especially in a game with charge characters and other defensive mechanics unless you're trying to practice something in a pseudo-training mode. It takes away something the game was balanced around and removes the ability to force action when people can otherwise turtle, not to mention destroys the moral and mindgame element of last second comebacks.

As far as i can see with this, the only days I can't really do are Friday and Saturday night because I'm working those nights. Most other days I should be free unless something comes up :(

LISTEN UP!


Tournament has officially started. Check the tournament page (http://challonge.com/ufs3exn7) for deadlines and who you need to play. The current 1st Round deadline is just to get an idea of how quickly we can get through this. If you all get through your matches in a day, then the deadline for each round will be around 2 days per round.

DO NOT LOOK AT THE CURRENT WEEK-LONG DEADLINE AND THINK THAT YOU CAN JUST DO ONE ROUND A WEEK.
Seriously. I'm not waiting 11 weeks to get through this.
