^That was 10 years ago now.

Justin has won good places in 3rd Strike tournaments in the past, and I didn't notice this before for whatever reason but he also did really good in Super Street Fighter IV tournaments. He has always been one of the most notable Marvel players for me though.

About Daigo I've noticed over the years that the way he plays Street Fighter is like a machine. Is really boring once you know part of the way he plays after seeing hours of his matches in the Street Fighter series, but the guy is undeniably good and has been able to do some amazing moves.

However, from the players that make a name for themselves with 3rd Strike I've seen much more amazing matches from other Japanese players. Some of the things people over there did with Q, Urien, Ibuki, Makoto and Yun Lee were insane and end up getting me interested in the fighting game scene much more.

*deep sigh* I knew this was gonna happen...

Alright I'll make this short; PewDiePie is gonna play The Evil Within on his channel like an idiot, because marketing.

Also the artbook of TEW looks like it comes out October 14, while TEW itself comes out October 21 (in America later following other territories).

I mention this because an artbook with 184 pages usually has like, lots of spoilers.

EDIT: New release date is now the same day as the official artbook.

My opinion of The Last of Us is what it is because I've played the game 6 or 7 times.

I haven't touched my PS3 in a while now, but I could do two more playthroughs with the 'Grounded' mode that was released as DLC for PS3. I don't know if I'm ever gonna do that because this game is tiresome and by the end of it I don't want anything from the game anymore.

And FYI, this what the Grounded mode does to the game if anyone still doesn't know yet:

@Taelus: '_')d Sure. No hard feelings.

But you realize that most of what The Last of Us did as a game was made better for other games that came around before in the mid and late 2000s, right?

I was probably one of the harsher critics of TLOU when it came out, but I've got to admit that it's really grown on me over the past year.  There's a lot of subtlety and nuance to the combat and stealth than I initially gave it credit for.  It doesn't always work (and I still maintain that the beginning areas of the game are awful compared to how much it opens up in terms of tactics and player agency), but it's very different from everything else out there.  Combat feels nasty, mean, and rarely leaves you unscathed.  I really like those aspects of the game and it totally sells the atmosphere.

Yeah, that was one of the aspects I did liked about the game. The combat had what I call "friction"; The damage you did and received had some kind of weight to it along with feeling nasty, or I guess is visceral the word I'm trying to use here.

Combat-wise I found it nothing special or unique.  Just the narrative and atmosphere totallly sold me.

I don't know why you feel the need to point that out.

Virtually everyone knows that The Last of Us was a decent dramatic TV series instead of a video game. Most of the stuff it tried to do as a game ended up falling short. It worked for what they wanted to present, but the final product is not this cohesive experience between game and narrative. The narrative is good enough to keep pulling your pants to see how is gonna end, but to do that you have to play a game that more often than not doesn't do anything remarkable, and that's without mentioning how the ending can either make or break the entire experience depending of the expectations the player.

Like I said before, buried within The Last of Us there was a better game and even a better story, but that didn't happen. But it doesn't matter because most people liked the final product, so... whatever I guess. *shrug*

I can't get behind the whole deal of The Last of Us being "fantastic and perfect" because in all of my playthroughs I kept seeing a better game than the one I was playing.

I've talked about my perspective of the The Last of Us before in this forum, so I'm not gonna repeat myself again.

I see it as a mixed bag, too.

A mixed bag of the greatest PS3 games ever.

Sony releases official screenshots of The Last of Us Remastered -- All Games Beta

"The Last of Us Remastered details from leaked presentation slides; 30fps toggle, additional DLC planned." -- AGB, Twitter

Most of this is all nice for those who missed the train, but as one of few that sees The Last of Us as a mixed bag I think I'll pass from this version for now.

For fighting games this is almost perfect for me, only thing is missing there is the analogs. I got all excited when I randomly found this between all the talk there was online about EVO last week.

Not going to lie, I do not get the idea of dressing up Pikachu....actually honestly I don't get Pikachu's appeal at all.
Because it took Clefairy's spot.

I think it was for two factors:

1. Pikachu is kawaii as fuck. :3

2. Pikachu has a wider appeal among people worldwide.

EDIT: Louffy's Rose with that PS1 Pad was the real deal this year. I mean, fuck man look at the list of players he took out of the competition.
