    I think I just played Gears with a dude who had the expression from panel 3 the whole game. Fucker must have been practically vibrating in his chair.

    The only (traditional) fighting game I've really tried to learn was Soulcalibur IV, and I did have a few "HA HA HA HA!" moments when I figured out how to do some cool shit.

    modern fighting games are too focused on pedantic timing requirements for me to enjoy most of them

    my personal enemy in these games is the dreaded Just Input

    This is why I love Soul Calibur. I don't have to memorize ridiculous combos or learn to time moves down to the very frames to trash someone.

    well, that depends on what character you use

    for instance, I really, really like Setsuka

    but in IV they changed a bunch of her moves to require just input in order to activate the second/third motion

    which is lame

    is blazblue worth picking up for someone that their last fighting game was soul calibur 2, or is it off in the realm of awesome but totally unapproachable??

    honestly barcardi, it's beginner-friendly as far as 2d fighters go

    i'd say it's more approachable than guilty gear

    the only problem may be the fact that it is intensely japanese

    blazblue has almost none of that

    nothing you'll encounter soon (i just encountered my first instance of this today in attempting jin's most damaging combo. except there's a way to do it without it... so)

    they agreed to not get too good at the game lest it ruin the fun they had with it initially

    consequently tycho gets a massive guide to the game, and gabe practices until late at night mastering what is implied to be difficult and powerful

    No, not really.

    Every fighting game I've ever played with a friend, we pretty much dicked around with no intention of really getting into it. I prefer it this way.

    The only fighting series I ever learned to bother the intricacies of is Virtua Fighter (4, Evo and 5). And none of my friends played that, so I only got to test my skills online in 5.
