I recently acquired a capture card thanks to impulse buying and was trying to think of ways to put it to use. So I've come up with the idea of me attempting to learn the fighting genere. My weapon of choice will be Blazblue: Calamity Trigger and I'll be attempting to main everyones favorite cat type thing Taokaka.
It was a toss up between this and Super Street Fighter IV, they're both great games but I prefer the competition on Blazblue, as even if I get it handed to me, chances are I made something flashy happen.
Anyway, on to the video. I'm just recording wins at the moment, as they're few and far between. Logic is it'll be easier to tell if I'm improving as I'll hopefully be getting more of them. My first win is against a Noel player who's clearly at my level as they didn't destroy me. On top of that they seemed to be having their own problems as they tended to burst early and not really punish me for anything I did (even though I did a good job of just throwing myself into their attacks anyway).
Random 6A: 30
Failed 214214C: 11
Divine intervention baseballs: 1
The next video comes from about a week later, I like to think it looks like I'm getting better, but I'm still throwing out moves randomly and not really checking what my opponent is doing. This one is against a Ragna player, luckily for me the majority of people I come up vs play either Jin, Noel or Ragna so I have a bit of insight into what he can do. I promptly ignore this insight and throw myself onto his sword. However this Ragna doesn't quite seem to have mastered throw teching, so I abuse that a bit which leads to a win in both rounds. Joy.
Un-teched throws: 3
Don't want(s): 1
Time stood still like a lemon: 19 seconds
So, after presenting my absolute scrubbery it's time to go work on some more combos and generally being better. Hopefully it'll be taunt loops before 2011! I'll continue to upload videos to my channel and not spam here so much, so if that interests you for whatever reason feel free to jump on and flame me. I'll be playing on Xbox Live too under the tag of "Mwngy" if anyone equally new wants to get some practice in without getting destroyed. Aaaaaaand I'm still hyped for BlazBlue: Continuum Shift that should be arriving here in October!
