Letter Time Edit

Q: Your Street Fighter III: 3rd Strike video got me into SF. What are things that help you get into the aggressive mindset when playing games? from Tarek

  • Pat: Just rush them down, and mentally check you are varying your options. Always go forward and make them panic.
  • Woolie: When you might usually take the time to assess the situation, move forward.

Q: If each of you had an anime based off your life what would the genre/concept be? from Roman

  • Woolie: Slice of life/post-apocalyptic mecha
  • Liam: Slice of life/harem/boxing
  • Pat: Supernatural-esque black comedy like Samurai Flemenco with monsters and stupid shit. Alternatively trapped in an anime/MMO
  • Matt: Dark brooding fantasy slice of life that has boxing mecha

Q: What are some great examples of remixes of a main theme used at the right time? from Kenneth

  • Liam: The World Ends With You and Nier both use that to extremely good effect.
  • Pat: Persona 4
  • Matt: Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots and Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater

Q: Why are there two copies of Battle Fantasia thrown into the stack of games shown on Friday Night Fisticuffs? from Detroit Sentai

  • Woolie: A motherfucker never gave me my copy back. One of them is empty.

Q: Would you like to see more games that have a difficulty mechanic that scales with performance or stays with static difficulty? from Brian

  • Pat: I love scaling difficulty if they're built for normal or advanced people.
  • Woolie: I don't like it. I like it if it's done in the way of adaptive AI.
  • Liam: When it works it's good, but when it doesn't it's absolute horse shit that ruins the game.

  • Woolie: Stellvia of the Universe - Sora no Koe
  • Pat: The orchestral version of "Simple and Clean" is so much better than anything else in the Kingdom Hearts series.
