  1. I love Rufus's little crab-walk so much.
  2. Haha, I spent it already, but that's actually exactly what I spent it on! Looks very good. I cleared out my inventory, though, and now have something like £4.69 in there. Half tempted by Killer is Dead on sale, and half tempted by One Finger Death Punch, but I'll probably just waste it entirely and buy Verdict Guilty which looks like one of the most broken fighting games I ever saw. It doesn't even have pushback on blocked moves! Other recommendations welcome, of course.
  3. Definitely up for the button pressing. Pressing the buttons is fun.
  4. I fell asleep repeatedly during last year's Evo.
  5. 1. JLM, that video clip is actually godlike! 2. Spuck, it's heartwarming that I disagree with you quite strongly on most of your points above, and yet we can still agree that SFV is boring. Well, I say "heartwarming" but maybe I mean depressing. 3. We're cutting our internet connection this month, so if anyone fancies a few games on steam (or even potentially on xbl if I can find a free month ticket) one evening before I'm gone forever then let me know.
  6. I love all this stuff, even the truly rubbish ones like Cast who I hope I never hear again in my life. I don't have a favourite, but nobody has mentioned Sleeper yet, so I want to fix that by mentioning them myself.
  7. I would love it, purely on the grounds that Curtis loves it and a man who loves dark souls that much couldn't possibly be wrong....
  8. I certainly like buying shmups.
  9. I have £1.33 in my steam wallet. Any suggestions on dirt cheap games? The last game I bought was Space Moth on clippa's recommendation, and...I haven't played it yet.
  10. Who would have thought that I'd ever again be sitting here on a Thursday night skipping through the stream archive from last night's Wednesday Night Fights. https://www.twitch.tv/videos/125788517 Online Tony, Marq Teddy, Chris T, Brentisn'tcool, Iansanity, etc. etc.
  11. I liked the two short tracks, but to be honest I don't much remember it.
  12. I haven't ever catalogued my records, and I'm wary of Discogs' prices, but these are a couple I noticed recently are apparently worth more than I would pay for them, if I didn't already have them: https://www.discogs.com/The-Tuss-Rushup-Edge/release/975346 https://www.discogs.com/Radiohead-In-Rainbows/release/1158751 Threads like this really make me want to just get rid of everything valuable and rebuy cheaper editions. Do I really need a big boxed copy of In Rainbows with a bonus CD (which I don't even like)? I could get the standard vinyl as a replacement for abo
  13. Just do a few character trials until you find something that feels right. If you just want to avoid Ryu/Ken and need a shorter list to choose from, though, you might look at Chun, Juri, Oni, Sakura, Sagat, or maybe Fei. All of them offer a little bit of everything from the delicious plate that is sf4. Or if you like to be different Hugo, Balrog, Blanka, Yun, Adon, Cammy and Rose are probably all fairly good unconventional beginner characters who will still let you learn the important bits of the game before getting bogged down in the less important bits. Enjoy your game. That's the
  14. Thanks, I'll take a look. I suppose if I really wanted to be sure I could just unplug and launch each game in turn again, but I might just be too lazy for that!
  15. I'm taking my PC offline for a while and I have been installing some games before doing so. I'm just working through loading them all to make sure the installation is complete and there's no online authentication which might trip me up later, but several of them are installing different versions of DirectX redistributables. Does anyone know if this is going to cause me problems? Or do the different versions they all install sit alongside one another without issue?
  16. This kind of thing might help: http://www.ikea.com/gb/en/products/desks/desk-computer-desks/svartåsen-laptop-stand-black-art-40242177/
  17. Either get an external mouse or just get a gamepad. Don't try and play anything fast paced on a touchpad.
  18. Haha, I think I said "ugh" to myself when that Cody st.HP connected. Delicious. Oh I meant to ask, I remember you showing me a combo video ages ago which had all sorts of weird stuff in it but the only bits I really remember are some stuff with Ken (maybe setting up the ultra or st.HK or something to hit backwards?) and a bit where it cuts to the song "im da bes". Maybe it was called bits and pieces or odds and ends or something like that? If you happen to know what I'm talking about, I would enjoy rewatching it.
  19. Nine minute compilation of the very best tricks from the very best online SF4 players. If I had to pick one bit to highlight, it would be the Vega thing at about 5:10 which I've never seen before in any form and which is just delightfully dirty. I had to rewind about four times.
  20. Play whichever car makes you feel good. Octane and Dominus are the most popular for gameplay reasons, I think, but it doesn't make much difference at our level.
  21. Every time you hit the ball, reset your brain, stop chasing it, and retreat a little way to see what's happening now and let your teammates take a turn. Once you get better you'll figure out when not to follow this rule, but if you treat it as a rule at first then I think you'll improve much faster because you'll be spending more time watching the game and less time mindlessly ball-chasing. It also makes you nice and predictable for your teammates so they know it'll be their turn to attack the ball after you've taken a swipe. Practise predicting where the ball will land, and who wi
  22. You can cross play, but it's a pain. You can't queue ranked or casual matches, only private. I'm on PC and play occasionally, but I was never good and now I'm out of practice too.
  23. Man I got bored an hour into To The Moon. I loved Gone Home, though.
