Marvel VS Capcom 3 - General Discussion / Iron Fist
« on: November 26, 2011, 12:05:45 AM »
OK so this guy hits hard, appears to have some pretty useful assists, isn't overly demanding with execution and can be a touch of death for much of the cast even without Spencer around to help.

His problem appears to be getting in and having the opening needed to do the damage.

Would be interested to know what any Iron Fist players here are doing to get that opening?

Who else is in for this? My next six months when I'm not playing fighting games are booked out pretty much exclusively for this.

PC version FTW.

« on: August 17, 2011, 07:24:27 AM »
I've got a spare CRT TV and I CBF keeping it around.

If someone wants to come to my place in Mulgrave and pick it up before I move then it's all yours.

Only accepts composite video connections. Has PAL/NTSC switching so 60Hz is fine.

TV is in very good condition, comes with remote.

If you want it, come get it.

At a EVO 2011 panel, Capcom's Yoshinori Ono announced that they've begun working on balance changes for Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition.

Capcom USA signed off on the patch and they will be testing balance changes it select locations in arcades in the future.

This will not cost any money, it'll be a free download, when it's released on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. Ono wants to take his time balancing this, and according to Seth Killian it will be available in the fall or winter time.

Ono said since he's announcing this, he's asking people to please tone down all of the bad language and insults on his Twitter account.

Sony admits utter PSN failure: your personal data has been stolen
By Ben Kuchera | Last updated about 2 hours ago

Sony has finally come clean about the "external intrusion" that has caused the company to take down the PlayStation Network service, and the news is almost as bad as it can possibly get. The hackers have all your personal information, although Sony is still unsure about whether your credit card data is safe. Everything else on file when it comes to your account is in the hands of the hackers.

In other words, Sony's security has failed in a spectacular fashion, and we're just now finding out about it. In both practical and PR terms, this is a worst-case scenario.

What did they get?

Here is the data that Sony is sure has been compromised if you have a PlayStation Network Account:

Your name
Your address (city, state, and zip)
Country
E-mail address
Birthday
PSN password and login name
"It is also possible that your profile data, including purchase history and billing address (city, state, zip), and your PlayStation Network/Qriocity password security answers may have been obtained. If you have authorized a sub-account for your dependent, the same data with respect to your dependent may have been obtained," Sony announced. While the company claims that there is "no evidence" that credit card information has been compromised, it won't rule out the possibility.

Their advice is to be safe, rather than sorry. "If you have provided your credit card data through PlayStation Network or Qriocity, out of an abundance of caution we are advising you that your credit card number (excluding security code) and expiration date may have been obtained."

What can you do?

You are warned to keep watch over your accounts, and to be aware of your heightened risk of fraud due to the security breach. "For your security, we encourage you to be especially aware of e-mail, telephone, and postal mail scams that ask for personal or sensitive information," the company said. "Sony will not contact you in any way, including by email, asking for your credit card number, social security number or other personally identifiable information."

Sony has also provided a wealth of sources for data and protection against identity theft.

You may wish to visit the web site of the U.S. Federal Trade Commission at www.consumer.gov/idtheft or reach the FTC at 1-877-382-4357 or 600 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW, Washington, DC 20580 for further information about how to protect yourself from identity theft. Your state Attorney General may also have advice on preventing identity theft, and you should report instances of known or suspected identity theft to law enforcement, your State Attorney General, and the FTC. For North Carolina residents, the Attorney General can be contacted at 9001 Mail Service Center, Raleigh, NC 27699-9001; telephone (877) 566-7226; or www.ncdoj.gov. For Maryland residents, the Attorney General can be contacted at 200 St. Paul Place, 16th Floor, Baltimore, MD 21202; telephone: (888) 743-0023; or www.oag.state.md.us.
To be fair, Sony does apologize for the inconvenience. There is still no update on when service will be restored, but that is the least of your concerns if you have a PlayStation Network account. It's time to change your passwords, at the very least, and if you're like to be completely safe it's not a bad idea to cancel your credit or debit cards and request replacements.

We'll continue to follow this story as it develops.

Fuck.

Marvel VS Capcom 3 - General Discussion / When do you use X-factor?
« on: February 22, 2011, 12:03:05 AM »
As per topic.

Do you wait until your opponent uses their or do you burn it early if you have the chance to take a character out in one combo?

For me it depends on who your opponent has as their third character. If it's someone like Sentinel I'm keeping X-factor saved until I have the chance to use it on Sent and get him out of there.

Unless I have a chance to wipe out the point character and an assist that's been caught on screen while Sentinel is off-screen, that's a chance I'm willing to take.

It appears to be a situational thing for sure, I guess overall it gets used when I have a chance to remove the character who I believe poses the biggest threat to me.

What about you guys?

Tech Talk / Virtua Stick High Grade 360 mod - who can do it?
« on: February 21, 2011, 07:20:14 AM »
I sure as hell can't.

So I've got a VSHG that WAS dual modded but the mod has since stopped working. Is anyone in the community willing to have a crack at fixing this for me, because I've got no idea.

I'm based in Melbourne, let's talk business or if I can be pointed in the right direction it would be appreciated!
