x360 Fighting games population
« on: July 15, 2014, 05:24:02 PM »
So I made a slight mistake of asking this on the shoryuken forums where I was greeted with ...the shoryuken community.
Luckily one person was nice enough to guide me here.
All I want to know is from others experience, what games online for the 360 have a decent population playing it here in Aus?
I'm fairly new to fighting games and I'm keen on trying out other games like Blazblue but I'm afraid it may go belly up like skullgirls and 3rd strike where I can never find anyone in our region playing it.
I'm aware we do not have the largest numbers of people playing it here, so not many games besides USF4 and possibly UMvC3 have alright numbers, but if there's any positive notes to be said about any other game, I'd love to hear.
Thanks.

Golden rule of Xbox; if it's new, people are playing it.

Sadly the rule of Australia is small player base + ass internet means there only a few dedicated players.

Usfiv is perhaps the most alive online community. You're better off playing offline with mates or finding that group of guys who do frequently play.

Gl, hopefully someone who plays Blazblue can help you.

Welcome Yarghdy. :)

You can arrange some games of Blazblue through the "Australian Blazblue Chrono Phantasma Fight Bros." group on Facebook. I believe they all play on PS3 however. You'll need a PS3 to play Chrono Phantasma.
Here is the link: https://www.facebook.com/groups/232050816955244/

Where in Australia are you from? If by any chance that you reside in Sydney, there's a Blazblue meet in the city on the 19th July at the Nerd Cave.
You can read the announcement here: http://forum.ozhadou.net/index.php?topic=5880.msg1290715#msg1290715

Also, as far as I know for Skullgirls, its all on the Steam now I think. You can join the Skullgirls Oceanic group on Steam, join the chatroom, introduce yourself and ask for some games.

The mistake was that it was in the wrong section than anything. But the biggest mistake was that it was in General Discussion (which is their off topic area where dudes go to smack talk each other lol). Other sections of the site there are generally pretty good, and more well-behaved than General Discussion. If you go to Tech Talk or the fighting game specific forums then there's a wealth of knowledge that you can find there.

The newbie dojo they have there, offer some pretty common and helpful advice for newcomers to fighting games too.

Anyway now that you're here, hopefully you can start finding your feet and players to play with.

6 hours away from sydney unfortunately. Thanks for the info nevertheless, If I do get into it to the point I'm bursting with enthusiasm I'll have to make the drive in the future.
