Looks like they're really going all out with the customization system in this one, like Tekken 6 levels of ridiculous.

I thought they already surpassed tekken 6 with the custom intros

On a lonely planet spinning its way toward damnation amid the fear and despair of a broken human race, who is left to fight for all that is good and pure and gets you smashed for under a fiver? Yes, it's the surprising adventures of me, Sir Digby Chicken-Caesar!

How long does it take to get used to a fightstick? I'm considering getting one (because pretty much all I play these days are fighting games), but my execution is already pretty drat iffy and I don't know how long it'll take to get up to par with them.

Also, there's the issue that I only have a PS3, most tournaments use Xbox, and the only options for dual-mods are that Eightarc stick that's perpetually sold out, fiddling with the circuitry on a MadCatz, or making my own.

Christ, not this shit again.

Most tournaments run on PS3, actually. Just get one -- it will take a while to adjust to movement, but you will have more fun and get better in the long run.

Definitely most major tournaments, but when I went to Michigan Masters (the biggest tourney in my state), it was entirely on 360s. It really just depends on what the people running it bring.

the TE kitty is very easy to install in a 360 TE, but you could always grab a ps2 controller and xtokki adapter if you are used to the ps3 controller and just wanted to stick to that.

In addition to the ease of installing a TE KItty, there are the Qanba sticks (sister company to eightarc) and I believe focusattack has them in stock right now.

Looking at the tournament I'll probably enter in May, I realize that all of the fighting games are played on PS3, so you're right.

The Qanba sticks are sold out, but since I don't need to buy a two-system stick I might go with either a TE (so I can win pogs tournaments) or an Eightarc PS3 Ebony.

Total Eclipse of the Heart

Played KOF some last night. I like it but it plays very weird if both people don't know how to execute solid rushdown (which you won't know how to do without playing a lot or watching some vids etc.) It seems like a really good game but I'm guessing no one is going to play it :/

If you've been using pad to play fighting games for a long time, it will take you a few weeks to maybe a month to get used to it, assuming you're playing somewhat often. Some people take more, some take less.

Some black friday deals some people might be interested in: MvC2 will be $4 on xbox live and the WWE Brawl stick will be $50 on amazon.

Since I got my stick a year ago I've been looking for a fighting game that's fun and doesn't have lovely online but mvc2 seems pretty daunting to jump into and I don't think anyone's playing it anymore anyway.

Depends if you use your left hand for directions and your right for button presses on keyboard. It really isn't too bad, you gotta learn the motions on your left hand but everything on the right will still be automatic.

You can play fighting games on xbox/ps3 with a keyboard, with the right adapter. I know i've seen at least one pic of a guy with a little happy hacking keyboard do it

Capcom should get Erse Yagan (voice actor for Bald Bull for Punch Out Wii) to voice him. That would be perfect.

So do Personas not regenerate anymore? If so, that seems like a pretty strange decision when they stay out so long, although I think they might have just misunderstood the Dualshockers article. Also, I'm surprised they didn't mention anything about blue life.

There is gameplay for painwheel here: http://www.gamespot.com/shows/on-the-spot/

I haven't watched it all, but she has focus attack-like normals which can be "charged" and absorb hits, and then the hits taken are added to the damage of the normal.

So Squigly and Umbrella are going to be post-release dlc. I guess they really want to get this game out in January.

Also Valentine and Marie are going to be playable, so that makes 8 chars for release.

I can't remember which of the staff said it, but basically they said they didn't see a point of including a character in the game if you couldn't play as them. So the bosses are going to have playable forms.

Seriously with the amount of resources making a boss cost, they should be playable. They can only make 8 characters in like the course of like, a year. Do you realy think they can afford to make 2 characters and not use them as a selling point?
