Going to work that night, I was on break and got on MSN and was talking a little bit by my friend Dyna who informed me that “Devastation 2011” (A huge fighting game tournament in Arizona) was underway, and it reminded me how this job working 12 hours-a-day on weekends has really effected me going to gaming tournaments and watching live streams (I even took off work on the weekend to watch the Evolution 2011 tournament and participate in fighting game tournaments at A-Kon here in Dallas, Texas). I was regretful I did not get to watch it, but maybe it will force me to try even harder so when I can compete in a tournament I give them all hell.
I worked on Magneto/Doom/Wesker combos and came up with some pretty good ones for Magneto, including one that uses Hyper Gravitation after a combo that uses float and doom assist and fly/unfly in a single combo, it is actually pretty good. Thought about putting him in my team but found out that it does not really work out too well. Seems Laura Kinny is not to be replaced as of yet.
After telling RaS about the nerf for the Sawed-Off, we began to play a bit online and Brandon got on and he played with us as well. RaS found out that he is better off as a support type player and the Sawed-Off Shotgun is actually a lot better for the situations that he gets himself into, which is fine. Also, we had fun making fun of “Trained by God” because he was caught raging a lot over games and we were just eating that all up, shit was cash.
Anyways, I also played later on with good friend eAngel of Death. We beat Beast Mode on Insane(Which we did for my friend Molly) and Horde Mode on Insane back-to-back in Gears of War 3 and got the Onyx medal. Weird as well, when we were playing today I think I have a XBox type crush on Molly, weird as hell. She has a type of southern accent like me, she plays video games, and sweet and shit. Anyways, enough on that subject though. It was funny how on wave 50 of Horde “Heavy Gear” my friend just lagged out and could not get the Onyx medal, we died a LOT on Wave 49 and Wave 50, damn Gunkers were crazy and we were forced to run to the bottom spawn of Over Pass in order to win. After that, I went to sleep for a while, told Mom to wake me up around 10:00.
She attempted to wake me up, but I was too far gone and did not get up until around 11:00. Wanted to watch Wednesday Night fights over on Off Cast, but they did not have it because Team Spooky was elsewhere, I believe. Anyways, they were playing all type of weird games like Power Ranger Fighters, some Gundam Wing Fighting games, and per Dyna’s request, I called in and requested that he play Battletoads. Hell, we even heard a creepy stalker sounding dude call in, it was funny as hell.
With that being done, me and Dyna went and played some Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition, and she got a match she wanted me to upload and I’m not going to deny her after stuff that went down last time. I also seen a Toronto Tournament final for Marvel vs Capcom 3, which had Combofiend up against MarlinPie, who win it in devastating fashion and had some pretty good combos from Magneto/Amateratsu. Never seen those before.
We took a break from Super Street Fighter IV to check out this stream to watch he friend “Alukard” play against some people, first one was named “FAB”. Team is pretty good, but I think I can take em’ if we ever did play, he seemed to drop a lot of stuff but got some free “Happy Birthdays” a couple of times (When you catch two characters in a combo). This is the dude that showed her how to use a little glitch on Marvel vs Capcom 3 online to make it where you have the “replay” option in created matches by using the player match function. We watched the dude for a bit and played a little more SSFIV:AE, and we took breaks occasionally to watch when Brian (Alukard) had a match. We continued to play until Dyna’s connection dropped one time and we took it upon ourselves to stop since she has work in the morning anyway. I needed to get better with Magneto but to no luck at all.
