Buying and Selling / WTB: Persona 4 Arena PS3
« on: August 21, 2013, 08:33:36 AM »
Discovered, to my dismay, that my Japanese copy of P4A doesn't work on my Australia console  :-\

Anyone got a second hand copy of this they are looking to sell?

So I finally went and had a read at how the gem system works, how you select them, and how stuff is activated. When I read it, literally all I could think was: "wow, this is going to be impossible to implement in tournaments." With so many options, so MUCH to buy, and the sheer volume avaliable to players (can you imagine players trying to counter-pick gem layouts?), this particular feature seems to have been developed from the ground up to be a nightmare for tournament players.

Anyone have any potential ideas or solutions for the issues that are going to come up? I've seen multiple people on SRK suggest just not using gems, which means essentially we've accepted that a tournament game is different from a normal game. The other suggestion is that only standard gems be allowed, no DLC. Makes sense, but then you have the awkward issue of playing an outdated and imcomplete game. The other thing to consider is how players have to manage thier "gem layouts." Does the winner have to stay with his gem selection?

For example, the easiest one I can think of, is that there was mention of a gem that allowed you to NOT take damage from single hits. Meaning, in reality, that if you ever fight Dhalsim, this is the only gem you pick. But lets say player 1 is fighting player 2's team of Sagat/Guile. Player 1 loses the first game, and then counter picks with Vega/Sim. Player 2 would obviously have to stick to Sagat/Guile, but then does he have the option of picking this "no damage from single hits" gem, which makes the counter pick a lot less effective.

I don't know, I feel the first couple of tournaments are going to be a bit of a mess. People have compared this to LoL, and how you have setups in that games, but that's a really silly comparrison, because LoL games take 25-50 minutes, and there is a full 2-5 minutes of pre-time before each game, even in casuals. The other comparrison is Magic the Gathering, which is an even sillier comparrioson, because the ONLY active element in Magic is the cards (which people keep comparring to gems, for some reason.)

Also "gems" sounds really stupid to say out loud.

Tech Talk / Repairwork at OHN

Hey guys, I have a TE round 2. Basically, its a little old, needs new buttons and the stick to be replaced (Marvel 3 mashing  :( .) I don't really do this kind of thing myself because I'm useless. Is anyone at OHN going to be doing stick repairs or the like?

How fun Magneto was to play?

Once I get this BnB down, I'm reworking my team to get this motherfucker on point. When I saw how simple his high/low mixup I looked at my Taskmaster and shaked my head.

Random Discussion / Japanese Earthquakes
« on: March 15, 2011, 01:49:59 PM »
In light of everything that's happened, I thought I'd just share a story. My friend was about to move to Japan to live and work there, and the place he was going to move to has been completley destroyed, like literally wiped off the map. He was in that area for a job interview about 2 weeks ago, and now it's gone. It's really hard for me to understand that.

This earthquake, and the subsequent results, are horrific.
