I agree that you should be strong with all 3 of your characters. I used Haggar for a while but once your other teammates are down he's pretty useless. Akuma is a great assist and one of the best anchors in the game. I suggest trying some other characters and look for good DHC options. Team synergy is very important in this game.

Peeps should play vanilla SFIV with me, imbaness is so fun. Also, everyone playing now bought this game because like "lol 10 bucks sweet" and they never block.

I hope there was something that made sense in that rambling block of text.

EDIT: Eh, I hope that didn't come off as too preachy. I didn't mean it to be. Just my initial impressions.

I get everything you're saying Guardian. I think the reason I'm wanting to drop Doom is because I largely picked him up for the assist. He's a really solid character, but he just doesn't fit for me. I'm not very mobile with him and I can't Doom loop consistently. Like Kensei is saying, when it's down to Doom I just don't feel like I can do anything.

As far as mobility and rushing in, I do feel the most comfortable with Wolverine. I'm not quite there with Wesker yet as I feel I can do better with his mixups. Part of the reason I was leaning towards Akuma as a 3rd is he helps both characters, his tatsu assist can perform a similar function to what I was using Doom's beam for (cross-ups, make strings safe, pressure, etc.) with the added benefit of being able to extent combos for the other character. He can also do decent damage without the help of an assist, and most times when it's down to him - he has a decent amount of meter and has lots of ways to efficiently use it.

The only other option I'm considering is keeping the Wolv/Akuma pair and possibly putting Taskmaster in the middle. His horizontal arrow shot might be a better option to cover Wolverine getting in. I'll have to do some messing around in training to see what works.

GGs last night to Shinobi, Guardian, Kensei, Old Rasputin, & Sinfulfate. Both in Marvel & BBCS. I think the new team in MVC3 is working out a lot better. I still need some adjusting, and I might still fine-tune it a little bit.

The highlight of the night was every single trolling attempt leading to a guaranteed loss by that person - Guardian & I being the main offenders. I'm so pissed I didn't save that BlazBlue replay.

Good games guys. I finally picked up the new BlazBlue. Don't know if it's a good idea learning another fighting game though. My Marvel play was so terrible yesterday after such a long lay off.

Added myself to the list. I've been playing SSIV a lot recently in anticipation of AE, and I'm trying to work towards the C to Shining C achievement. I'm doing Makoto right now, but I fucking suck with her.

I also love Mortal Kombat and Marvel 3, and I have a ton of other fighting games as well. If you see me on and you want to play something, just shoot me a message!

GGs to you too, Tom! Definitely stoked to play more with you guys.

I pulled 9th at that tourney I went to. Awful, but not nearly as bad as I'd feared. Got cheesed to death by an Astral Vision Morrigan spamming soulfists.

Damnit Joe, you beat me to it.

Comes out this summer, which is a lot sooner than I expected. I'm pretty stoked because while I've played it, I never really learned 3rd Strike. Day 1 purchase for me.

I added 3rd Strike Online to the CAG Fighter directory.

So, SSF4AE session this Wednesday?

I wouldn't worry. It's already been confirmed for PSN as well. The trailer that leaked was likely specifically for Microsoft's use.

King of Fighters XIII has been confirmed for console release on October 25, 2011. Published by Atlus. Pretty sweet news, since there was a lot of speculation that SNK wouldn't be able to bring it over due to financial issues. I'll be getting it.

. Do you have kofxii? I thought I've seen you playing on of the xbla titles.

I played KoFXII briefly. It was a crude, unfinished mess. It didn't even have team fighting, and the two console exclusive characters were missing parts of their moveset. KoFXIII is going to be what KoFXII was supposed to be, so I have no issue with buying that.

I have KoF2002 Unlimited Match. It's a dream match game (meaning it's non-canon and includes a huge roster, whether it makes sense or not), and considered one of the better KoF's. I have fun with it, but no one else i know owns it, so there's little motivation to learn the game. Most of the KoF mechanics I know, I yanked from CvS2.

I miss CvS2. I wish they would port it to xbla. I was gonna buy KoF 2002 but didn't know if anyone would be playing.

Good games, Kazimer. It's no secret to the people on here that Amaterasu is one of those characters that I dread fighting (along with Zero and Taskmaster). Got blown up by Tron assist more than I'd like to admit. :P Good stuff.

"Play" is being generous. More like, I press buttons and wiggle the directions to look at characters do flashy moves and shout nonsensical jibberish. :P

Yun lobby indeed.

3rd Strike Online is going to have trials ala SF4/MVC3 and challenges. Guess what one of the challenges is?
