So, I'm reading up about Crisis Core. And I gotta admit, I'm digging the style and it looks like its turning out to be a good game in a sea of PSP crap. But my question is, is Square over the hill? For every 1 new final fantasy game, theres 5 spinoffs and 5 remakes. I understand people want to play these remakes and they sell, but what about 7, 8, 9 remakes? I'm not a huge fan of 7 I thought the gameplay was a little slow (and yet I love 8 go figure) but the story was very very good, and I gotta ask why haven't they announced a 7 remake? They want money, and you want 7 with new graphics. Why isn't this announced and being made?
At this point, its not really a question of if, but when. I'm thinking 2010 we will have a remake of 7 (on the ps3) but I dunno I could be really off.
I read a recent post by a guy named Cutie Honey (link here) and I recently changed the rule set for my house, and the tourneys I run. Heres the basic rule set.
4 stock limit
8 min time
Smash Balls ON (I'll explain why)
and only certain stages (I don't feel like finding the real names for each, so basically its like Corneria, Pokemon Stadium 1 and 2, Final D, Battlefield, and so on)
So I've come to the conclusion that Smash Balls are great, and heres why. When Sakurai made this game, he came up with a different smash for each character. It's become obvious to me, that when he was tweaking stats, defenses, moves, these final smashes HAD to have come into conclusion when balancing each and every character. This stands true for characters like Meta-knight who has a great speed, low damage, great skills, great recovery, mediocre smash. And you com-pair to other characters its apparent these smashes should be used in tourney play. Now someone will say, items suck, no tourney should use them. And I AGREE ITEMS to me should not be used, BUT Smash Balls is not a 1 pickup item, you have to HIT the ball, multiple times and even then you can lose it if your adversary hits you hard enough to knock it out.
These final smashes I hope will play an intricate part of official Brawl tournies and should effect the tier list considerably. Brawl SHOULD have some random because thats how this game is balanced and created. And after putting in over 60 hours of brawl already this really is the most fun I've had. I hope MLG and whoever looks at the Smash Balls and says hey, Sakurai balanced characters around their final smashes, so for us NOT to use them would purposely unbalance the game worse then it might already be. Comment what you think, if you disagree tell me why I want some discussion on this.[url]
Without further ado, I present to you my dinning room and living room. Before you look apon my apartment I will tell you now, I spent all my money on my TV, and games. My house is so bare but I enjoy my 42 inch a lot so I think i got my priorities right :)
my messy computer monitor, which an older monitor sitting behind it(I use to duel screen but I'm to lazy now)
It originally was an Acer my mom bought, but it broke so I took the insides out, and rebuilt it using the case.
yes that is a 42 inch sharp on a 35 inch floor model from the 70s. Once I bought the TV I didn't have enough for the TV stand. Its scrub looking I know.
Yes thats a Wii sitting on top of a Eternal Sonata face platted 360. And those are sitting on a chair, Like I said, I really need a TV stand.
These pictures were all taken on my Blackberry Curve phone, so its only 2.0 Mega pixel so yes the quality sucks and I apologize.
Does your Soda have 23 Flavors FUCK NO IT DOESN'T so thats why Dr Pepper fucking rapes Coke, Deepthroats(please read my edit underneath) Pepsi, and shits all over you're favorite drink.
ok on a different note, I still have my Chrono trigger with Factory Shrink still nice and tidy and I need money anyone want a near Perfect Chrono trigger?
Edit: The reason I threw Deepthroats in there is because I'm annoyed at how every time I try to get a Dr. Pepper from a Restaurant they say sorry, We don't carry Pepsi Products.
Heres the wiki site http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dr_Pepper/Seven_Up at this current time it is neither owned by Pepsi nor Coke. And it pisses me off Dr. pepper "deepthroats" the Pepsi brand as Its almost fucking impossible to get a Dr P in a coke "establishment." Now that I think about it, last time I got a DP from a restaurant was McDonalds which subsequently has Coke, odd.
And I must say, it went decent. Overall we had 9 people (10 if you include me) and we covered enough for the prize. I didn't make any, but thats not the point of this thing. One thing I will say though, brawl in competition is completely different then casual. I played Melee a few times in tourneys and ran really well, not really thinking about camping, and being overall vicious as a 16 year old gear who just had her prom date taken by the "hotter chick." So overall I played Olimar and pretty much destroyed the competition until I ran into a Meta Knight player. This guy was, let me put this out, COCKY. Every time you die, taunt, every time he hits you taunt, every time you make a mistake, taunt. I swear to god I was ready to beat this kid into submission. But anyways I decided I'll let my play do the talking, and this is where the fun, and my dislike of this game begins.
Pros and Cons to Meta Knight.
AMAZING Aerial attacks
No KO power
Now as playing as Olimar I thought I had ok recovery good range all the good stuff to beat almost anyone when it comes down to skill, but boy was I wrong. I wil throw this out, I lost. Period I lost to this sub-par Meta Knight player, and you might say your being bitter, and damn your ass I am. But heres the thing, I didn't lose to skill, I didn't even make any mistakes. When it was all said and done I lost by 1 life. And let me tell you how I lost, he perfect edge grabbing, Period. He would simply knock you off level, juggle a little (not even good at this) and then knock you to side and grab level. If you try to come back, he attacks you to keep you away. Say good night to almost 90% of the characters out there who don't have amazing recoveries.
Now let me again say, Do you see a problem with this? Yes Meta knight has no KO abilities, but who needs KO when you can grab ledge and keep them off at 80%? You don't need to KO someone, just keep them off, and thats where this game is starting to piss me off. None of us play like this, and I feel personally its bad taste. Yes he won the tourney, but let me say again, he killed me 4 times by doing this tatic(he got me once by a normal KO which I was at 160%) So I think its kinda insane to give Meta knight all these abilities but his only downfall isn't really a downfall when you edge grab like he did. It almost doesn't make a lot of sense. I felt like playing Meta knight in this way gives him zero downfalls. Overall I wanted to semi rant and put that out. Thoughts opinions agree disagree? Overall I felt cheated, but I did play a lot better then him. 4 deaths by edge grabbing, oh well I guess I'll have to go for peoples throats next time and not let them back on the ledge(oh fyi I destroyed his friend earlier in tourney and I even apologized because i grabbed ledge by accident thus giving him a death, I guess some people will always play to win.)
