Street Fighter X Tekken

Any SFxT players around here? I enjoy many fighting games, but this is the game I play online in the hopes of getting better. I know a lot of people didn't like it when it first came out, but I stuck with it and I like the direction they've taken the game thus far.

 

Online I usually play with a tag partner. I main Marduk and he plays a rather good King. Alone I'll usually put Marduk on point building meter and breaking through defense and have Lili as my money-maker. I want to learn Kazuya and I mess around with Cole in exchange for Lili sometimes.

SFxT vanilla was horrible and the DLC on the disc thing really didn't help the game's initial release. However, the 2013 updates definitely fixed the game and I've been playing it ever since.

 

I've been kinda rotating between a few characters but lately I've been trying to lvl up my Kazuya since I'm pretty new to him. >.<

 

I have the game for PSN, so if you or anyone else happens to have it there feel free to add me for some games!

My gamertag on PSN (primary) and XBN is Whodigiya. I won't be around for a while, though.

 

I plan on entering whatever tournaments they have at the convention, although I doubt I'll place all that well. I was big into the online scene a few months ago and I was doing quite well, but now I'm back at work and I can't practice at all. I'll have to grind pretty hard when May rolls along.

PSH I totally know how that is. When I was back in university I would play nonstop with friends and was so good. Would also hit up Nicklecity to play 3rd strike and CvS2 with new faces. But now that the real world has come into effect I've been reduced to a casual player. I once played with a group of 8 or so people IRL and now have no one so online it is. >.<

 

I'll hit you up on PSN if you haven't already sent something my way.

Yeah, I usually get a lot of game time in with good players even when I'm at work. This time around things are a bit different and there's no one to play with at all. Thankfully, my tag team partner still gets his time in so when I see him again he'll be able to get me back up to speed.

 

I can add you, but there's no way we can play each other right now. It'll be a week before the convention before I can jump back online. If you DO see me online it'll probably be when I'm playing Playstation All-Stars with my co-workers. That's the "in" thing around the office right now.

Just picked up a new character recently by going over to Bison(dictator). He isn't in your face like a lot of the Tekken characters but I feel like his poke game is really strong. I've been pairing him up with Christie and I think they have a decent synergy together.

 

I think the game has been lopsided towards the Tekken characters after the 2013 patch so all I tend to see are those guys. So lately when I've been trying to add new characters I've been looking back over towards the SF side. Sagat is next I think. >.<

Bison has an excellent poke game and they made him able to get switch juggles going a little easier after the patch. I really don't like fighting him.

 

I don't know if I'll pick any new characters any time soon. I've been maining Marduk and Lili since the game came out. Sometimes I'll switch my team up if I get frustrated, but ranked (unless my buddy is around) you'll never see anyone with Marduk, but Lili.

 

Speaking of my buddy, he recently came back and we've been doing "First to Fives" in our favorite games that we're both competent at. He smashed me 5-3 in SFxT. I was a little sad. His King/Nina is pretty ridiculous.

The learning curve is kind of steep, but it all flows together quite nicely once you understand the system as a whole.

I play SFxT way too often.. >_<

Hopefully I'll get to play some at ACen this year. :)/>

 

I love virtually all fighting games so much that I don't mind knowing that I'm going to get horribly destroyed.

I just assume I'm going to get smashed by whoever I play. That way if I win it's like a nice suprirse!

 

Yes, this is my technique as well. Sometimes I'm pleasently surprised and that 15K BP player is really just slightly refined garbage.

SxT...it's okay, tho I never play. It collects dust. Vanilla just killed it for me.

 

The updated version really is an completely different experience and it's very worth your while. I've enjoyed the game since it came out and I gotta say that it's fantastic now post-update.

I have no one to play with but random folk. On a side note, UFGT9 is the weekend after ACen also in Rosemont. I wonder what big names will show up.

I got a good community of friends online thanks to The New Challengers and since they live all over the USA there's usually someone to spar. Other than that I made a few friends online jumping through lobbies and we chat while we play. It's great fun. Not enough people use mics; it's sort of disheartening.

No one ever plays with mics and if they ever do it's usually some kid talking crap. It's super annoying and I would much rather have folks who are constructive about matches. Like, "oh you kept blocking the cross-up incorrectly" or what have you. Things to make each other better players but these online warriors...

I've run into a greater number of nice players to chat with than trash talkers. Actually, I've never had a trash talker in the hundreds of matches I've played. I've had my fair share of mic spammers, though. I've gotten plenty of hatemail. Most of the time when I find another mic user they're either indifferent or amicable. Lucky me, I suppose. As I said, I've met some great people online. I do most of my matches local, though, since I run the gaming out where I work.

Yeah those were good games, bro. Funny jokes and sweet combos abound. I gotta step my game up, though. Gotta get Lili and Cole on the level. Gotta not get Bison kicked in the face. Gotta watch that Christie... Matches were FRESH TO (my) DEATH, bro.
