    Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

    Huh I didn't even notice because I was too busy shouting SUPER SMAAAAASH BROOOTHEEEERS! Also I just had a Hungarian beer called Falcon Punch. What a good day.

    Ever been totally hooked on one game?

    Across different versions of Street Fighter IV I've owned I clocked up 3000 hours or so. I'd never been so obsessed with a single game prior to that. Likely a few hundred hours more than that since I played at a load of events and at friends' houses etc. And I was playing it online on PS4 just days ago. It's very good. I'd imagine Goldeneye and Smash Bros Melee would have been the closest prior to those definitely a few hundred hours on each. Generally if I've played a game a lot it's because I'm playing it with or against other people. That's when videogames are best.

    Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

    A big fan of the new dramatic pause for those potential KO hits. Mario's jumping dunk with forward+A on an opponent trying to jump back to the stage from the side is so perfect.

    What the fuck is going on.

    Quite a combination of poses on that Luigi/Wario one. I'm excited to read this issue. Might also be tempted to get a hold of The Last Guardian again to complement the Time Extend (plus I haven't tried it on PS4 Pro).

    All Time Favourite Gaming Mission

    Invincibility. People in school used to give me two pounds to unlock it for them, haha. Bunker 2 in Goldeneye is my favourite. Firing a single KF7 Soviet shot into a guards head though the glass window of those metal doors had such a satisfying sound. You could play it stealthily or just go wild too. Loads of fun.

    Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

    Almost picked this up today from G-Force too but decided to stick to digital. Argh! Ordered the ethernet USB adapter too because it'll likely be unplayable over wireless. Captain Falcon!

    Tekken 7

    I'm not familiar with the character but he does look a bit out of place, partly because of his proportions relative to the more exaggerated musculature of Tekken's cast but also the barbed bat attack where it sticks to the skull looks a bit odd in tone for Tekken. Summoning a tiger out of nowhere is fine, however. The main reason I'm not keen on guest characters in games is that it can cause licensing nightmares later down the line. The other reason is that sometimes people on the internet type "guess characters" and I can never figure out if it's autocorrect or what they genuinely think they're called.

    Street Fighter III: 3rd Strike

    Street Fighter V is very lenient with its inputs and, because of the additional 2-frame buffer it's much easier to link moves together too. It can definitely reinforce bad habits. Going back to Street Fighter IV is certainly difficult if you're trying to land harder links. Especially online with its input-delay based netcode. For the most part though the fundamental aspects and input motions are ingrained in muscle memory so it isn't too much of an issue. Except Street Fighter 1. Fuck those special moves.

    Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection - May 2018

    Yeah that's the one. Takes off about 70% of your health if it hits and still a good 25% even if you block. Oof.

    Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection - May 2018

    Decided to get all the trophies in this and finally completed that task tonight. You have to complete Arcade Mode in each game. I left Super Turbo til last because of its notorious difficulty but I actually found the Alpha games far more of a challenge. Partly due to the unfamiliarity (and stubbornly sticking to Dan) but also the Ryu AI was brutal and Final Bison in Alpha 3 is The Worst. The Blue Belt trophy was the last unlocked. You need to get to Blue Belt rank in online Ranked Matches but if you're playing at the wrong time of the day they're either few and far between, wildly laggy bouts versus Brazil/Japan or utter beasts swallowing weak players up. I thought it'd be a trophy requiring a dozen or so wins but it ended up being closer to 230. Ouch. Anyway! It is done. And 3rd Strike is an amazing game. Had fun practicing Necro combos on Switch during my lunch breaks too.

    Street Fighter III: 3rd Strike

    Yeah I think only one in ten matches on Switch are even playable. Likely because everyone is on wireless. Including me. Because you have to buy a daft dongle to play via ethernet. I'm still hugely entertained by the fact I have those games arcade-perfect on a portable system though.

    Street Fighter III: 3rd Strike

    Been practicing Necro stuff and now I'm really keen to land this for real.
