I don't have a problem with the gems. Even the assist gems aren't that bad since they cost 1 meter each time they're activated.

I dont think banning any gems is nesccessary, it's already part of the game mechanic and overall it's not even that noticeable, the most powerful ones have specific activations or have some sort of negative effect.

Any thoughts on a Team round robin or something involving teams?

In the case of any ties, we will resort to Scramble mode ;)

GGs to Joe & bs over the weekend!

Assist gems are broken. It's easy to build meter in this game, especially with meter boost gems.

I agree, most of the boost gems are pretty negligible. As I mentioned above, assist gems are straight up stupid.

Some of the DLC gems have lower activation requirements, or similar power-ups with no negative effect. That's why I mentioned the possibility of banning them.

Personally I'd be fine without gems. I think they're more trouble for what they're worth.

I'm pretty indifferent to gems. I don't like them, and I don't dislike them. Frankly, I don't even know which gems are DLC and which aren't, and I haven't put a whole lot of thought into gem selection.

I think Tom has a point with the Assist gems. Considering that whiffing normals builds meter in this game, and the autotech/autoblock gems only use HALF a meter to activate, it completely negates mixups for a very small cost. And it's not as though you can't perform regular techs or blocks... and plenty of characters can do serious meterless damage.

That said, I don't think we're super competitive here or anything, and I don't think that we should necessarily ban any gems from our standard play. They become less of a liability the better defense you have as a player. Instead of it eating all of you and your partner's meter over and over, it occasionally saves your ass from a mix-up that would have led to 50% damage... I think that these gems should have cost at least a meter to activate.

That's my big issue with assist gems. Let's say I'm Gief, if I have the autoblock & meter I can just walk forward & avoid mixups or pokes. So are we in favor of banning them?

Also, technology. Some of it is kind of basic, but I got a couple of good ideas from it in optimizing damage:

GGs last night everyone! Taking a new character application now! Sticking with Gief for sure. I might go with Guardian's advice & try Marduk with Gief. I didn't want to since it's team Mike Ross, but he does hit pretty hard which is nice...

I know this may not be the best place to post this, but I thought you'd be the most knowledgeable people to ask on CAG. I'm looking to get out of fighting games and sell my games and fightstick (I just can't devote the time to get good, or keep up with all the title updates). I have a first run, MadCatz Tournament Edition fightstick for X360. It's in really good shape, with all the fancy packaging in pristine condition. Does anybody have a feel if $150 would be a fair price?

Sounds about right. I wouldn't take less than $130. You can always check completed listings on Ebay to get an idea.

It's possible you might be able to get that for it depending on the condition. A few months ago when the sticks were running dry, used models similar to what you have were getting $150+. The only problem now is the newer design of the TE sticks (the "PRO" model) goes for about $160 brand new. I've seen some TEs sell in Orlando within the fighting game community within the last couple of months for between $100-130.

Sad to see you go, but best of luck selling the stick! I'm sure we'll still play other games.

I doubt you could sell it for that. New sticks go on sale regularly for as low as $99.

F1ngers of Fury, MtlTom, Kensei, thanks for your input. I sold it for $170, including a couple older fighting games, to someone on craigslist. Their response came so quickly, I was second guessing that I underpriced it.

Thanks for having me in the group and, MtlTom, thanks for managing it. I hope to jump back in down the road when I've got more time and money on my hands (maybe when BlazBlue 2 is out).

So I was looking at a list of Rumored XBLA games for this year and well I came across some interesting ones.

One of them is a Double Dragon remake, which is being done by wayforward, hopefully it plays better than it looks.

I bought it on PSN today, because I have no self control and have been having a blast playing matches online and playing story mode and tutorial.

The Tutorial kind of reminds me of Blazblue except it's shorter, more accessible and isnt condescending ;), overall the lessons really are unique as it specifies some of the games other mechanics, definitely play it.

Online has been pretty smooth, you can choose the ping and GGPO rollback to your liking, and has the option of searching east and west coast regions which is pretty cool. I've played about 20-30 matches with a pretty good Win loss of 15 wins out of 20 with solo fortune, it's alot of fun.

Story mode is pretty short, but that's standard story mode fare, story mode restricts you to the one main fighter, arcade mode lets you do whatever.

Final boss however is cheap as Fuck, sorry but damn is she a bitch to beat, especially when her final form hit box is the size of a golfball.

This game is really tight. I hope it does well enough for spectator mode & other features.

I will...when it goes on sale. Too poor right now on the video game discretionary funds.

I know that this isn't very Fight Night-ish, but I think some of the Wed. Ight crew (Tom and Kensei, i recall) have expressed some interest in doing the Gears 3 DLC. I think most if not all of us have the Season Pass, so I think it might be fun to tackle some of it next Wed. at 9:00 pm. Anyone interested?

Gouki, I'm sending you an FR as I don't think your on my friends list. I figure we can get in some UMvC 3 punching bag matches sometime as I remember you and me struggling to keep up in fight nights past with everyone else. Maybe we can trade wins!

If you're looking for easy wins at Marvel I'm your guy.

I'll pick up either Skullgirls or SFxT soon. Which one is getting played more?

I'd be up for some Gears. I haven't played it in forever & I have the Season Pass. If everyone is down for that just make sure you update all of your DLC ahead of time. I'm sure we could knock out quite a few of the achievements for it.

I'll pick up either Skullgirls or SFxT soon. Which one is getting played more?

Personally I think Skullgirls is an incredible value for $15. I'm enjoying it quite a bit despite the lack of spectator mode. That being said, I know you're not really as wild about the crazy anime/VS style games so I think you might like SFxT better.

Also, feel free to hit me up if you ever wanna play BBCSX. I think we all need to play that.
