-[ Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition ]-





I'm getting back into Super Street Fighter IV, having not really played too much of it because I was getting more into Marvel vs Capcom 3 and now Gears of War 3, it was a welcome change from the usual pace.

The match began and I went for a jump in, but she countered and backed away, a good tactic that I was not expecting that threw me off guard just a moment.  Dyna is good with counters so I make sure I try to watch out for those.  Jumping over and hitting her with j.MP, I attempted to cross under her (0:16) to go for a Karakusa grab mix-up, but jumped instead from a botched input.

A few seconds later you will see me go for a cr.LP into a instant air Tsurugi (Axe Kick) to try and bait out a counter attack and punish with a counter attack.  I do this as a regular tactic so Dyna seems to have adapted to it and blocked instead. (0:19) I land a counter hit st. MP while she was trying to hit me from my missed Tsurugi, and I came in late with the Hayate (Dash Punch) and failed to cancel off of the counter hit.

She breaks my focus and hits me out of another st.MP, where as I realize I need to guard and go on the offensive so I am not surprised by pressure.  Jumping in with a HP, I expect it to block and immediately go back to my cr.LP into my instant air Tsurugi, and this time it connected (0:25) into a st.HP canceled into HP Hayate.  Normally, people try to grab or throw next so I do a cr.LK into LP Hayate, but she seemed to be expecting it and blocked.

Hitting with a focus attack, I soon land another st.HP into HP Hayate, and this time, since she blocked my last one, I attempt to grab her with a "Chibi Karakusa" and missed.  (0:32) I start focusing and realize she is in the air, running under her I sweep with cr.HP.  I go for a cross up with jumping MK but missed and grabbed her out of her EX Counter instead.  Immediately afterwards I feel she will be jumping after I do with MP, but she does not and I waste a EX Tsurugi for nothing.  After blocking a Senpusha (Pinwheel), a st.HP punish ends the round.

Round 2 turns into a disaster, I am beginning to be counter hit and beat out of everything that I do, and that is because of my own impatience.  I even find it funny (1:00) that I go for a command grab Karakusa and she goes for a regular grab at the same time.  The thing I find funniest (1:17) is my failed too early anti-air cr.MK that gets me punished with a combo; luckily Dyna missed the EX cancel finish.

At (1:20) I am begin hit out of everything by her st.MP and realize I've got to find something to get out of here.  She does her Fuhajin from a cr.MP and I decide it is time to create some space.  I planned on doing a nuetral jump HK to cr. LK and instant air Tsurugi, but she reacted to me jumping and was going to j.MP that and probably combo with a close st.HK into Senpusha.  After breaking a grab, I managed to connect with a counter hit Tsurugi, cr.MP, MP Hayate.  Not paying attention that my super meter was full, I could have easily have went inot Tanden Renki into Seichusan Godanzuki, but I went for mix-up (should have did Tsurugi, and that got me murdered).

The following round was full of mistakes.  (1:47) Me missing an instant air Tsurugi after a Lvl. 1 counter hit Focus Attack, or the missed HK Feint cross over at (2:42).  Dyna prematurely doing Juri's Senpusha at (2:45) as well as me missing Makoto's EX Hayate and instead doing EX Fukiage because of bad input.  At the end, it resulted in a Double KO, pretty epic, eh?



-[ Gears of War 3 ]-





This is a match I played with my friends (Trained By God, Savage Creed, Riot Trigger, and Cain Mayne).  So yeah, everyone in this game for the COG is running in a full party, which is very rare for me.

Well, I start off running to the Digger Launcher and shooting to deter anyone from coming, but I did not see anyone so I grab Incendiary Grenades instead.  Someone misses a point black Sawed-Off Shotgun shot and I miss with the Grenade and don't even worry too much about them.  Being killed at (1:00) after chasing/evading a guy pissed me off a little bit but it was all good, respawning was in progress.

After coming back, I am being shot and rather than attempt to fight a losing battle I jump over and begin to run, trying to get away so I am not Mantle Kicked nor have to really deal with assault rifle fire.  Coming across an unfortunate victim he is gibbed (1:24).  The same person came after me and I was ready for them, killing them while they recovered from a roll but was unable to get a s hot off before I was killed.

I attempt to head back to the fight after respawning and present cover fire; but the person I planned to Lancer down (1:50) soon saved as someone attempts to chainsaw me and I automatically go into it.  While mashing on the B button I am met with Gnasher round and die before I can complete the duel.

Coming out of spawn now, I Lancer someone down who is not really paying too much attention. I begin to go at someone else I see, and begin to Lancer fire at a couple more people and only get assists.  Then out of nowhere I am Sawed-Off and again have to respawn, I seem to be dying very quickly.  Well, I see that I am going to probably need to play more of an assist role, I do not seem to be doing very well on the offensive front so I grab the Boltok pistol.  Going into the inner part, I switch to the Gnasher and put someone down because I have the Boltok and a meatshield is a great way to wield it.  (3:20) I notice someone shooting and in the window, not even caring that I am shooting them.  Their head is popped as they try to move and I see switching to the Boltok was a good move on my part.... until I am shot in the back and it negates the fact I hate a meatshield... I respawn, grab the Boltok again and die before I know what was going on.. great.

Losing that round, I start off with a vengeance, we are undefeated at this point and I do not want to lose.  Yet I die when I throw the ink at someone and they are not even stunned and I die by the Sawed-Off.. Hmm.  After respawning, I am running past the bathroom back to our side and tried to get the jump on someone with Mulcher.. did not work out too well and I died again.

Running back towards Mulcher I managed to avenge a friends death as well as assist a friend in killing another guy.  Not long after that I kill and down the guy who got Trained By God after I and then head back towards Sniper Rifle and Ink Grenade and see that they are both already gone.  I kill someone as I make my laps in a circle back around to the same spot and soon is saved by Trained By God getting a headshot on the guy closest to me (8:16) before I am downed and killed by a Retro Lancer.

We are now out of respawns and we do not want to lose, so we begin a road to a come back. I grab grenades and is unable to kill the single guy in front of me with them.  After downing him with some pop shots I take away one of their six respawns and set out to see what else I could do.  Next victim is an unsuspecting player who dies as he is throwing a Smoke Grenade, and the next victim was too busy shooting his Lancer to recognize me.  At (9:20) I am helping a team mate escape the valley of assault rifle bullet fire he is under, we need everyone alive and I'm a team player so it is worth it.

Coming around the corner, I see someone about to rush in with the Sawed-Off and I manage to kill them before they can kill em, so score right there (9:31).  Jumping over the edge back into the main area, I shoot someone who had the Lancer and was not expecting me to be there.  Someone misses me with the Sawed-Off Shotgun and I try to chase them and encounter someone else, I'm out of ammo and melee and completely forget that the dude in the back has the Sawed-Off and I die.  Well, I took out 5 of their 6 respawns and this is where Cain Mayne and Trained By God pull off the clutch win for us.  They were patient.

Nothing too interesting after that, but we do win.


-[ The Verdict ]-

Only had two videos this week because I was tired and too lazy to put the other one up.  However, good match with Dyna and a decent one with the clutch match on Gears of War 3.  However, I think you should check out the other video for Gears 3 I posted on my YouTube.  Subscribe!
