So firing back up the Secret World. I was playing this back in beta. My PC has a hard time playing it smoothly though which king of hampers the experience. My roommate has a pretty beefy PC and he was playing it a while back with all the effects up and it looked pretty awesome. It made me not want to play it anymore on my PC.
Anyways, I fired it back up, wanted to see what was up with the new F2P model and the end of the world event and stuff. I'm Denny "Ironsouls" Michaels on Cerberus if anyone wants to play.
Yup, I'm done with it. 37 losses in a low. I can't even get out of Fighter ranking anymore. I obviously just don't get the game system in some extremely fundamental way. Oh well it was "fun" I suppose... game has no replayablity other then online play though so I think it's off to gamestop with it this weekend.
So played a whole bunch more MvC3 this weekend. I think I'm coming to the conclusion I just am not all that good at it. I have a *REAL* hard time in the game with fireball zoning. Someone fast like Dr. Doom or Sentinel will just keep me pinned in the corner. How do people deal with the keep away pressure tactics?
Also I went and finally bought myself at Mad Catz SSF2:T Fight stick off amazon for 150.00... maybe that'll help. Probably not.
Played a bunch of MvC3 this weekend. Graphics/Sound/Presentation is fantastic. Game play is pretty fun and easy to get into but has more depth then you might at first realize. Some reason Capcom went and got the netcode from SF4 beta release and is using that for the matching system. It's fucking awful. Just BAD. I also wish the move list would list the extra moves, like Dr. Doom's Hidden missiles and M.O.D.O.K's barrier... or that matter the effect of some of the moves. Not sure why it's not better documented.
That being said I still played a bunch, I'm not all that good however. Got almost to Eight Lord rating on PSN, I haven't really gotten the hang of the air combo system yet and using the X factor to cancel into another combo. That seems to be one of the higher level play keys. Oh well more playing around is needed.
Just finished Dead Space Extraction tonight on the PS3, wasn't bad actually. The voice acting needed some help, but the game in general was decent. Actually filled in a lot of the back story for Dead Space. I'm actually fairly excited for the Dead Space 2 DLC with the surviving characters from Extraction now. Now I need to beat Dead Space 2.
