STRYKIE

Oh if only you knew..., Male, 22, from London, UK

I just realized that in the last year, I've only bought 2 new games. Is gaming in decline or have I grown out of it? Maybe a bit of both? Sep 16, 2014 at 6:47 PM

      I'm giving Evo a miss this year since the other UK guys can't make it. Good news is, I'm using the cash to get a 360 within the next month.

        I haven't spoke to Jay about it personally but I don't think he was too bothered in the first place. Foxy as far as I know was relying on the donation drive.. we all know how that worked out

        @Rey - I could, but who would that benefit? I've never bought a console at launch and the current gen has solid support for at least another year.

        @Blake - that's another problem in itself, our main source of casuals, HMV, went into administration and we've barely had any get togethers since, it might be for the best to wait for MK10 for now.

        To put into perspective what I'm trying to say, I guess I've realized in the last week that it's more trouble than what it's worth at this point. It's just hard to explain it all within status comments lol

      Do fairy type Pokemon seriously have no weaknesses or are they just TBC?

        Oh, didn't notice this. They announced this at E3 for Pokemon X and Y, kind of like when they announced Dark type Pokemon for Gold and Silver. Literally all we know at this point though is that they're super effective against Dragon types.

      And just like that, the Xbox One became better than the 360's entire library with one game.

        A step in the right direction, sure. I just don't think one game beats an entire consoles library. I know it was hyperbole though.

      I like how Injustice's patching agenda is slowly mirroring MK9's. Guess we can expect nothing after October.

        Because they will be making a new project. We praise NRS, and hate Capcom. Yet Capcom still shows love for their games in the upcoming years, even if they're making more than one game at the time. [:/]

        I've grown to get over it for the better part of 15 years. It's just funny to me how many players on here who wouldn't be interested in Injustice under normal circumstances have forced themselves to like the game, only to hate it more for what MK9 was and are honestly shocked.

      I might end up buying a 3DS so I can play DKC Returns somewhat ergonomically.

        I'd probably buy Smash once I have it, but not the 3DS for Smash. Depends on how close it is to the Wii U version.

      So apparently, pro-Scorpion players just chuck out random spears for the hell of it. I guess Cage beats Sub because he can jump ice puddle.

      Due to health concerns I might not be able to make it to EVO. Sucks, but I'm sure nobody wants a potential repeat of what happened to F0xy.

        Appreciate the support. I've had an X-ray (maybe in more ways than one with how shitty I've been feeling #Kappa) and awaiting for my GP's word on it tomorrow.

        The other thing is because of it, I havent had a chance to renew my passport which expired in May and I'm worried that even if I get the all clear, it wont arrive in time. :/

        Fingers crossed..

      I figure everyone's rusty but does anyone know if Cyrax's corner jail setup against Sektor and Shang is guaranteed with Cyblax too?

        It was never guaranteed to begin with, it works on AI because they do wakeup attacks late.

        A human opponent can wakeup attack earlier, thus stuffing the attempt completely.

        Dafuq. I guess training mode doesn't take the extended invincibility frames into account or something.

        But thanks for clearing that up. Last thing I wanna do after this long is end up going to EVO and lose to something because I didn't know any better lol.

      RUMOR: Scorpion's hellfire will be 10 frame startup and +30 on hit without meter burn.
