Maybe she should date someone who plays SF3 or 4. MvC has always been button mash trash.

It should be.

There's a whole freakin' lexicon of rules called The Code Deullo for just such an affront to one's honor.

Plus, who doesn't like watching a good duel? Replace pistols with fists and death with tap out and sell tickets.

That last one's funny, because it looks like she's wearing a mixed Bnahabra+/Alloy+ armor set, which means she's probably got Razor Sharp and Critical Eye +1/+2, but she has Status Attack Up paired with Amber Hoarfrost, which is an element switchaxe.

I mean, durrrr, amirite?  Hello?  *crickets*

What's with the Caucasian blonde Chun-Li?

Couldn't cut the mustard with the other Cammy cosplayers?

She could pull off a pretty good Maki, though that character's from the less popular Final Fight series.

Noel Brown is an equal opportunity abuser.  A few year ago he was banned from an Arcade for swinging punches after losing a match.

i.imgur.com

He also is generally a douche.  After losing a best 2 out of 3 team match, he whined and biatched that the match should be 3 out of 5 until everyone else relented.  His team went on to win the match.

In other words, Noel has always been a asshole, but he gets away with it because he has friends that are some of the best in the world.  When you have people like Justin Wong and Yipes defending your supreme douchebaggyness, then you get more slack to continue to be a douche.

No, he gets to continue being a douche when he's around people who give a shiat about what he's good at. When he's around the rest of us out here in this big wide world, the limit for his douchiness is just as low as anyone else's.

He's about to find out about that little qualifier the hard way, in fact.

I hope I'm not the only one who noticed that Kotaku could care less about gaming and really attempted to spin the CEO's email into even more gossip reporting.

Aw, I'm disappointed.  Whenever you post a bunch of Chun-Li cosplayers, you HAVE to 'surprise' end with Jackie Chun Li.  Pretty sure it's a law of the Internet.

I agree.
Kotaku doesn't care about gaming unless there's drama.
They didn't cover a single thing about CEO or even MLG this weekend.  Tons of competitive gaming, LoL, CoD, Star Craft, Street Fighter, Tekken, UMvC3, KOF, Persona 4, etc and not even a listing of the winners up on their website, but they jump right on the Noel Brown story.

It's the same thing as the Street Fighter x Tekken "Reality Show" drama that Kotaku covered without mentioning anything good that came out of that, admittedly, overly long event.

Of course that doesn't change that Noel Brown is an asshole and always has been.

I defend someone going apeshiat on the cheating SO, and not the person they were cheating with.

I mean, violence is bad, but maybe if you knock someone out they learn a lesson and next time they'll be an adult and just end the relationship instead of farking around.

Other things you may not like that have world rankings:
Billiards
Darts
Poker
Magic the Gathering
Bowling
Chess
Go
Pokemon
Yu-gi-oh
Hearts (the card game)
Curling (yes, it's more of a Canadian thing, but if Baseball can have a World Series, Curling can have a World Champion too)
etc

Find enough competition and someone will make a tournament for it.
Heck, Swamp Buggy Racing is a thing, so why are you surprised about this?

I know about and understand the ones I bolded, but shiat like Pokemon, hearts and fighter video games seem to be a bit silly to have world rankings.

Can you play it competitively 1 on 1? Is it available in more than one nation? If you answered yes to both for a game, what other qualifiers do you want?

More importantly, why does Chess get a pass when competitive fighting games are just as much about manipulating the opponent into doing what you want them to do by training them to expect you to act a certain way or coming up with devious mix-ups that they'd struggle to react to in time, creating and designing combos that offer damage, meter, or the benefit of creating openings for yourself to put the opponent into a poor position that can lead to another opening to keep wailing on them, knowing each and every one of your available tools from how many animation frames they are active and the effective range of their hit boxes and how to apply them in character specific match ups, and forcing/baiting/capitalizing off any mistakes these players make to take them to victory?  Because there's a very high execution/dexterity requirement to perform well in one and not the other?

Just because you can't understand or follow the mechanical and strategic depth in these games doesn't mean it isn't there.
 
2013-07-02 10:06:36 AM  
Bleh.   Chess admittedly would be far more exciting if it had combos.
