>:( You got Mu? You lucky bastard! I got Tsubaki.

...though considering I am learning to main her, its not all that bad.

Also Mu isn't underaged. She's just underboobaged. That's all.

Did you get the PS3 version? Maybe discs are different.

Also,
Spoiler: show
Mu is Noel, but in the past. And since Noel is like, what, 17? 18?
Therefore, Mu has to be, like fucking 14 or 15 or whatever?

There should be no difference between the versions as to what characters you get. All console versions are supposed to have Mu/μ-12.

Spoiler: show
Ok, that's not correct. Mu is actually Noel's real name and also what Noel really is, which is the 12th Murokumo Unit. Noel was found on the fields of Ikaruga and was adopted by her mother and father into the Vermillion family and given her new name Noel upon adoption. Bolverk was given to her to seal her memories of being a Murokumo Unit, so that she could live a normal and ordinary life because she no longer had a purpose since she was a failed Unit in that she couldn't connect with the Azure Grimoire.

Though she connects to it later on which is why everyone wants her. Gotta love how failed things are able to connect.

The mindfuck that Terumi does unlocks her memories of being a Murokumo Unit, that's all. So Mu isn't really any different in age than Noel. The only difference between Mu and Noel is that Mu is able to utilize all of Azure Grimoire.

Well there's also the rage against everyone aspect, but that's just our poor Noel trying to cope with the idea of that she isn't really human. But that doesn't matter because she's still our awesome little angel of death.

Ok, she's MY awesome little angel of death. Shoot me. Wait, no, Noel not me!

Maybe. The tiers shifted dramatically, but the end result is only slightly more balanced.

The exciting thing is that BlazBlue is actually designed for balance patches. Currently, there's only two rulesets, 1.00 and 1.01. The difference is that Makoto is allowed to be played in 1.01. In 1.00 rules she is not selectable. This does mean they could do more substantial patches down the road.

Does the Xbox version need a Title Update after the patc? I was too busy with other games to find out. If not, it means that Arc Systems Works was smart enough to code in a way to do balancing by creating a DLC file that the program looks for when launching. This means they can patch the game WHENEVER they want, they don't need to wait for Microsoft to approve the patch, nor do they need to pay them for certification.

Yeah my disc are is Tsubaki. Not Mu 12. T_T I wanted Mu 12.

The story in Calamity Trigger was so full of crap, with people being vague on purpose.
Its not that people were being vague on purpose, well ok, they were, but its more the actual nature of what they were trying to do. Because it was harder to get to the different paths than CS, CT was harder to understand. Hell, a lot of things only made sense if you took a wrong path. I have nearly all the paths beat so it made me understand the story a lot better. However to get those paths you stoetimes needed a walkthrough which is stupid. I'm glad they streamlined the process for paths in CS becasue it helps out.

And while CS is the next game in BlazBlue, its actually more like BlazBlue Part II than actually BlazBlue II. Taht's not directed torwards you toth but more towards others who are wondering. And also, if I spell something wrong, its because IE is being a pain right now and moving all over the place on this post so its hard to see what it is taht I'm typing at the moment.

I only ask because BB was one of the least balanced fighters to come out in some time, apparently.

While its not the greatest balanced game, CS will allow for updates to tune it to being balanced, which would be wonderful. I'm not holding my breath though.

The nice thing about CPU Seth is that he will always do one thing based on where you are standing. At full distance (Or almost full distance), he will wall jump and kick. Punish him. Never jump in on him unless it's guaranteed. Know which of your moves go through fireballs, punish his sonic booms with them. Sadly, Ryu, Ken and Sakura don't have any moves that have fireball immunity, save for well-timed Ultras or Supers.

Other than that, general character mastery will win for you. Know your best pokes, and just outpoke him. Being a CPU opponent, he will always be successful to pokes. Nickel and dime him to death if you must. Also, learn his patterns, his are VERY clear... or they used to be. In Super, he's a bit less formulaic. He'll still go to the well for a couple things. Also? Block.

The Following Requirements must be met while playing Arcade Mode to fight Gouken, who will appear after the battle with Seth. (In default settlings. I.E. 3 Rounds): -Do not lose a single round -Perform 5 Super or Ultra Combo Finishes. -Score 2 Perfect Rounds (Not get hit a single time during a Round) -Connect 10 "First Hits" (When you're the first to connect a strike during a Round)

I use a fight pad myself. All the sticks I've seen have a square inset and as I play mostly QC characters, I just don't feel comfortable using them.

The newer MadCatz ones have apparently gotten good reviews by pros and regular gamers alike..but its all about what you plan on doing. If you want to be semi-pro or compete, then just find something you'd like to use..if its just for being at your place and playing with friends, then a pad is all you'd really need.

Just my $.02

I use a HORI on PS3 and PS2 for pretty much every fighting game. The only one I seem to suck at it with is Street Fighter 4 for some bizarre reason!

Yun and Yang are official for Super Street Fighter 4. There are no pics or videos worthy to post for this yet. There have also been some balance changes:

Zangief: EX Green Hand doesn't knock down.
Honda: Ultra 2 has a new motion: HCBx2.
Bison: Ultra 2 is now a charge motion (HA FUCK YOU YOU WHORE).
Gouken: LP rush punch has no forward movement, but is faster. His counter is now DP + Punch. LP for low body counter, MP for upper, HP is unclear.
Rose: Lost all invincibility on Soul Satellite (Ultra 2).
Makoto: EX Hayate (Rush Punch) Now breaks Armor/Focus Attacks., more invincibility on Oroshi (Overhead chop), and a damage boost on Fukiage (Uppercut).
Abel: Command grab damage nerf. More recovery on Breathless (Ultra 2)
Fuerte: Ultra 2 got a damage nerf.
T. Hawk: Now has a standalone EX Condor Dive (KKK), and can be done on back jumps.
Adon: Wakeup time changed (unclear)
Sagat: More recovery on tiger knee. Damage BUFF on tiger uppercut.

So my boy Abel gets nerfed with his hammer throw, but Breathless doesn't leave you open to get raped when you either whiff / burn it to get out of a corner...I feel sort of "meh" about this.

Adon's wake-up time I can only see them fucking nerfing that shit since he tends to spring the fuck back up after being hit and waking up into a rising jaguar.

Changing Bison's 2nd ultra to a charge is sort of not needed...I mean, what are you doing that for exactly? To stop the abuse it causes from it being so easy to input?

MORE SSF4 changes:

Balrog: Ultra 2 is now 2x Half Circle
Zangief: Defensive EX SPD beat out Attackers SPD after an EX Green Hand on hit
Dee Jay: Ultra 1 seemed to do less chip damage
Seth: jumping Fierce punch looks like he is doing a shoulder charge, similar to how his focus attack looks
Makoto: MAYBE her Fukiage (Up Punch) hitbox had been moved forward a bit. Also she MIGHT be able to combo into Fukiage after EX Hayate in the corner. Also a lot of minor changes that all serve to buff her.

They ran an SC1 tourney at Pax East, and I was surprised at how well it held up after not playing it for like 8 years.  It's a little simple, but it's still really fun, and I love how fast it feels compared to SC4 where they slowed everything down.  Made me wish I'd played it more when it was new, heh.

Are all these SSF4 changes going to hit the home version at some point, or are they just for the arcade version?

I can't believe I didn't notice until just now that Tekken Tag 2 was announced!  It goes without saying that this is pretty much the greatest thing that has ever happened.  There's even a teaser! 

Also, I was sad to see Justin Wong eliminated from that WCG Ultimate Gamer show because he can't drive.  Too bad, hoped he'd win.

No, all of the MvC3 characters haven't been announced yet.

In SCR news, Fillipino Champ beat Daigo 3-2 in the second set of the Grand Finals to become the 2010 SCR champ. He had earlier sent Daigo to the losers bracket where The Beast took out Tokido to face off against Champ once again..first beating him 3-1 to reset the match to a final 3-5 set where it came down to the last round of the last match for FC to win.

In other news: Tokido took home the BB:CS title along with the 3rd Strike crown.
Wong took home the MvC2 title, GCYoshi won CvT with PTX..Tekken Tim won T6 and Daigo topped the HDR pool.

Team International (Tokido, Daigo, Sako, GamerBee) took on Team Cali (Valle, Wong, Vangief, Fil. Champ) and won 8-1 with the second set being an OCV with Tokido simply raping Team Cali.

Team SoCal beat Team NoCal when Wong came up 3rd for SoCal and ran through NoCal with Rufus.

So I'll pose this question to Thoth and a few of the other fighting game regulars:

Does it make me a poser / n00b for jumping back in to the community via SFIV and having gone all this time in not knowing about Valle, Choi, Watson and the rest of the "OG" members of the SF scene?

I mean, I played SF2 at home..think I wound up buying all the console versions for SNES but after that, sports games and the like really took hold and I never kept up with SF. Add this to not having a computer for a long while and not knowing of usenet groups or IRC and as such, not knowing of any local scene. (Which, is there / was there any scene in Houston?)

So..am I just band-wagon jumping n00b or is it alright that I got in when I did?

So I'll pose this question to Thoth and a few of the other fighting game regulars:

Does it make me a poser / n00b for jumping back in to the community via SFIV and having gone all this time in not knowing about Valle, Choi, Watson and the rest of the "OG" members of the SF scene?

I mean, I played SF2 at home..think I wound up buying all the console versions for SNES but after that, sports games and the like really took hold and I never kept up with SF. Add this to not having a computer for a long while and not knowing of usenet groups or IRC and as such, not knowing of any local scene. (Which, is there / was there any scene in Houston?)

So..am I just band-wagon jumping n00b or is it alright that I got in when I did?

I think you got in at the perfect time. Fighting games were on life support until SF4. You're part of the largest resurgence in fighting game history. Be proud. Watson just retired this past weekend, and people care more about the next generation of Street Fighter players.

As far as your local scene goes, Houston is actually the largest scene in the midwest for Street Fighter. Here's one arcade I found:
Monsters Arcade
13626 Veterans Memorial Dr.
Houston, TX, 77014

Try this one, too:
Stargate
2117 Chenevert; Houston, Texas, 77003

Have all the fighters for MvsC3 been revealed?

I've not been checking up on it, but now I have and can I just say "wahoo Arthur"

I will eat all of your dicks if Daniel Bryan ACTUALLY cashes in his MITB at Wrestlemania
7 months and counting...

I'm pleased with the final list for the most part.  I'm a little bummed that the Punisher wasn't included (they could have easily had him using "energy" weapons like he used in the Fox Spiderman animated series), and while I'll miss Cable, at least no one will be able to cheese the hell out of him in multiplayer.

Final list? They have at least 10 more characters to reveal. Also, if you think there's no cheese in multiplayer, someone whipped out an 100% damage combo at SCR this past weekend. Think it was with Thor. Although there are actually no 100% combos because of the burst system, but you get my drift.

Shit there's more?!  I thought they only had a couple more fighters to reveal.

I heard it was Hulk from the different reports that came out.. but I might defer to you as you were actually there.

I wasn't watching much of MvC 3, I was playing the other unreleased fighting game. I apparently did good enough to get an invite to the SoCal team for KoF 13 at NorCal regionals, but I had to decline because I have my own tournament to host.
