Street Fighter V - General Discussion / Re: Street Fighter 5

Been on the beta today. Big thanks to Niah for some help. Ends up I got a play it on low settings but hopefully the game get's "optimized" in Niahs words.

The game itself is....interesting. Can't say I was like "Whoaaaa, this game is awesome" , although with so few characters and experience it ended up just as a fuck around. All of the weird block stun/push block things seem quite true, although I guess no one is playing optimally. I ended up picking Karin for a bit who seems fun. I also picked Ken, but felt I was falling back on basic SF4 techniques, but that were less effective because of how the normals operate.

Verdict - Wait to see more characters and gameplay.

If anyone plays me and I pick Dan, it's a serious attempt to try and keep the game fresh for me by learning a new character that's difficult to use.

The amount of cry baby quitters I'm coming across is quite funny. Like when you pick Dan it's automatically trolling...... ? Grow up!

That's my one post for the year.


Remember this is the last year that USF4, TTT2, UMvC3 and KOF13 will be official games at OHN. If you're a fan of any of these titles then we invite you to join us at 99 on York next month to farewell these great fighting games.

What are you going to replace those games with? I would have thought USF4 and would have still pulled decent numbers.

Does he play online? If so, then just get him to hook up with his online mates at the event. To answer the question though, it's just a bunch of geeks playing video games, the worst he's likely to experience is some harsh language.

Hope Pepeday wins with El Fuerte

Would be a fitting end to the USF4 shambles.

I'd say Daigo would be favourite. It really depends the draw, Bonchan got to the final with a relatively easy draw until he came up against Luffy.

A few upsets in the early rounds throws the whole prediction thing out the window. I'm interested to see if Infiltration keeps going with the multiple characters.

I didn't like the design at all on first glance, but that all faded when I watched the gameplay. I've went from this looks kind "meh" to pumped in the last few weeks. I'm not overly fussed on the looks of the characters (although the faces do seem fucking strange).

Some of the screen cosmetics still bother me, but those will be fixed I bet. The only other element is that the push back of the normals looks quite big, but the moves seem to reach out for juggles that don't look possible (animation wise).

Street Fighter V - General Discussion / Forum needs a shake up
« on: July 03, 2015, 01:28:13 AM »
Not sure where to put this. So here will do!

As someone who likes the online/offline game, banter and general chit chat. I think the forum needs a shake up, yes SF4 is at the end of its life and it will most likely pick up at SF5 where we left off, but.....

Some of the things I'd like to see here -

1) More talk from the big guns of Australia, yes, you don't give a toss about online or its little band of crazy's , but I think some feedback from the better players would be cool. This stuff doesn't seem to happen on forums, for whatever reason. Although I have enjoyed some of the interviews and streams.

2) More information about who won the tourney's, breakdown the brackets , a big match video section, I think a lot of people like watching, make this place THE hub of fighting games in Australia.

3) Tips section? Where people can share technology.

4)  Maybe a shake up on the visual style.

5) Do you guy's need help doing this stuff?

I'm just getting this started, there are plenty more ideas we can have. Even though we have a smallish community country wide, I think things like the online tournament of late prove that there is a decent audience out there.

Thoughts..... ideas.....?

I'm liking this now. I watched the comparison video's of Ryu vs Chun li split screen between 4 and 5 and the speed is now looking good. It looks like the characters rise faster also, hopefully to combat any cross up shenanigans.

Now we need Sagat in there.

Casual Event Announcements / Re: Perth FGC

Oh awesome, I'll add myself to the FB group. Can't make it to the event tonight since I'm working, but I'll try and see if I can start making it out to sessions and tournaments pretty soon here.

I didn't bring any of my stuff from home so I don't even have a stick! I'll be getting a PS4 pretty soon and I'll look into sticks as well. Thanks!

People are usually pretty good with sticks. I'm thinking about getting it on PS4 aswell, but not until they fix the glitches.

Hi mate,

Our scene is quite small but we have some good players. There is a tournemant on tonight at Game City, I can't attend this week, but have been a few times. Game Ciy is the arcade at the city train station.

You won't find many Perth guy's on here, but if you play PC me and Stekho play online quite a bit.

If you want most of the details go to the facebook pages and add yourself. We have casual meet ups sometimes which are also fun, usually at Derricks place (good Rufus/fighting game player).

Event -

Facebook Groups -

If you need any more info, post here or add me on Steam - Zola.

It's every second week now? Bugger. That rules me out, bit like the locals, always seems to be on my working week!

Hopefully I'll catch one in the future.

Yeah, it looks like it needs some serious work first. I'll wait til the dust settles a bit.

I'd love to rant on about Capcom, but it's so normal, it would be more surprising if they got it right.

Interesting thing I just heard Zhi commentate on. He said the back select plinking wouldn't be in the SF4 PS4 version. Not sure how they just edit that out, but they must be able to somehow, unless it's something to do with the sticks.

I don't use it myself, but most of the top Japanese players do. Especially Bonchan.

EDIT: Thinking about it, maybe it's because the PS4 doesn't have select?

I guess we won't know the community size til it hits. My PS4 has basically been used as a beer mat since it came out and I'd imagine I'm not the only one. Since I've now paid the annual online fee already (came out automatically , sneaky buggers) and the game is apparently quite cheap, I'm kind of half way there. 

My current stick is held together with scotch locks (nice Dog), so it's sort of a smart move for me from that aspect too. If I can get a dual modded PS4/PC stick then it will cover all bases.

It was interesting to see Somniacs (think it was him?) video on the comparison's of the systems. Looks like we had it wrong the whole time, and it was the Xbox that was wrong. I'm assuming the frame rates will stay the same for the PS4 version. I'd always thought the PS3 version ran like a slug but that may have just been the net.

Not that I'm expecting PC like levels, but it would be nice if a decent bunch of blokes switched across and the game was ported well. I might give it a dip anyway. I sold my X-box so I'm not going back there.

Could be a could way of gathering all the communities together and with SF5 coming to PS4, it's probably a smart move in the long run. Sticks are already out as far as I can see.

Not sure if I should take the plunge. The net could be slightly better although I don't have much experience with online PS4 bar some shooters.
