Like Jefailey from a few weeks back, the latest entry in the Divekick tournament is based on a real human being. Markman is the community and sponsorship manager over at Madcatz, and has become a mainstay of the FGC. Though it's great to see a familiar face, he does look a bit bland compared to otherworldly types like The Baz, Redacted, and the previously mentioned Jefailey.
Looks can be deceiving though, as Markman has more than a few metaphysical tricks up his sleeve. Like Phoenix Wright in UMvC3, Markman is an "random item search" character. His ground special allows him to sift through is pockets and throw crap on the ground, hoping to discover missing parts for his Divekick Kick Box Fight "Stick". He may end up tossing out poison bombs, oil slicks, springs, glue, or even a Acme Portable Hole. Producing these environmental hazards leaves Markman vulnerable and their effects can screw with both characters.
That risk can lead to a sizable payoff. Collecting all three parts to the Kick Box puts Markman in "precision control mode", which allows him to "up kick". This is the only dragon punch move in the game, and it's fully cancel-able.
Sadly, I'll be missing my chance to check out Markman at UFGT9, but I will be in a Divekick tournament at E3. Do you think Markman should be my main? I'm leaning towards The Baz, but that electric just-frame special is pretty tempting.
Occams Naruto 4 installs on my PS4 and it updates. Game says it can't run story mode during installation. Nothing's installing though. Restarted PS4. Reinstalled. Nothing. Fucking dumb.StriderHoang This plays in my head every time I tell myself to stay determined.Gamemaniac3434 Tonight, I learned what Flanx and MrNovember sound like in discord, listened to the best idea for a movie ever, and learned a little more about the depths of human depravity.
A night well spent.
Fuck us all. Ckarasu So, the artist that they used for Street Fighter 5's story mode(the arcade one) is kinda...not good. Go look up Laura's CGs. Colors are pale, and proportions sometimes end up kinda bonkers. Like, "extreme hourglass figure" level of bonkers.FlanxLycanth Justin Timberlake blasts Kuma in the ass and dies.ooktar I'm loving these fighting game elitists trying to give me shit because I criticized Street Fighters Fight Money business model.Nathan D Thanks to Dtoid I now have this gif in my life, and I can't stop laughing. I seriously can't get over it.
Jiraya Finished SOMA today , was able to do a second run without enemies with the "Wuss" mod, found it actually more frightening has you get more time to think about what is really going instead of doing hide-and-seek with the AI (Alien Isolation I miss you) Mike Wallace I stayed up late last Saturday writing a Dead Space 4 proposal outline. Solved every plot hole, had plenty of badass moments. This is the state I live in, people. Torchman WHY DO THEY GET SOUNDS BUT PIKACHU AND CHARIZARD CAN'T. WTFPixie The Fairy Finished my Storge set and 4/5ths of that was on the clock today o_O I also got a dragonlord eyepatch, which is totally practical covering the right eye when Cyndel's hair covers up the left eye.Lawman So Zack Furniss told me I should play Dying Light on Hard. Guess who's never listening to Zack Furniss again? :-/EdgyDude Deadpool spoilers: He gets cancer.beargreasey So Kanye just announced his new game, Only Once. It looks beautiful and personal. It's just a shame that I still have no idea what it is.CoilWhine I dunno why people are getting so huffy about Windows Store / XbOne Quantum Break crossbuy. It means double the gamerscore for me, and AW and AW:AN are rereleasing on the One so I'll have owned them 3 times over. Great games.Nekrosys I once considered pitching an idea for a Dtoid Australia podcast, but then I realised it'd probably just be Zyk and I getting drunk on Foster's and complaining about Atlus for half an hour each week while incessantly calling each other cunts.Parismio New Splatfest is Pokemon Red vs Pokemon Blue.
