I don't like how some of the speed and arcade feeling was lost in the port. Small quibbles, I know. Understandable quibbles though. It's just nice being able to play online when you don't know anyone else who's interested. I don't have a Playstation 3, but it would have been nic...

We already know people who can imagine themselves in their own heart can return, the question isn't "who is capable?" But "who is given the chance to?" There is definitely a limited number of souls (as I explained in the other thread), so reincarnation must be at play...

My heart goes out to you.

You'd do well to binge on some ice-cream. Just reading that makes me want to.

I've only played it on console and have no experience with emulated games.

I've heard of GGPO, but everyone I spoke to about it says how shockingly bad the connection usually is, and I'm not even sure if it's still running either.

Fun rarely equates to a good fighting game. Practicing combos like these --- just look at the speed this game is capable of compared to other fighting games --- aren't fun, and consistently pulling them off in a match against capable players is even less so. Learning frame data and frame advanta...

I agree with how poor SFIV is, though only because of what preceded it really. Not so bad on its own merit. I disagree it can only go up, I fully expect it to be even worse; more fluff and more casual friendly. First gameplay footage. At 0:57 you see a guard break. I called it. It was obvious they w...

I don't think everyone who ever died can/will return post-EoE. The Chamber of Guf was said to be empty, so can we assume that souls are recycled? If they can own and manipulate souls, but couldn't locate any, then they must all already belong to something? I suppose then it would depend on ...

Well, it tipped me off right away, 'cause you get that little star that appears next to the 96 when you're at the main file select screen. I always thought that was because you go through the last star warp after Special World (the one that makes the whole game uglier and was irreversib...

Staff members who aren't often active, or could maybe be doing some of the work load with cleaning up after users? I admitted being possibly off the mark here in what some admins do, but it's how it looks to me.

Again? I'm not sure what you're asking.

because I've done it, successfully . What we have now seems successful to many people, but the staff have apparently become unwilling to keep it up. Couldn't there at least be an attempt to find some moderators that are, in members who are eligible? There seems to be a good few listed staff...

Of course not. They should be properly disciplined for actual disruptive behaviour. My touchstone for defining this is civility . In my book, if people can't discuss in a civil manner, they would do well to learn. And what would you consider to be civil? Surely that itself is a subjective thing...

The biggest leap in that game for me was making it past World 7 AKA, the Pipe Maze. It took me exponentially longer just to make it to World 8 than actually beating World 8. We're talking a span of time from about 1994-2005 The only other game that ever took me longer to beat (or in this ca...

Mr Hodges : but wasn't there a back-lash when the moderators were far too strict on the spoiler policy? People don't want that kind of moderation, they certainly won't want a strong ban potential on what can be said or not in passing. As I believe to be the case, some of those who were ...

Also, I feel that what's required to reduce the load on the moderators here, is stronger application of stronger policies. If people are made unable to repeat the same pattern of drama again and again, then it no longer has to be dealt with on the same scale, and moderation becomes easier. Some...

I think many agree, but:

That's why I'm arguing for the sub-forum with all it's own rules, as opposed to no "serious discussions" at all.

a draconian approach to off-topic could effectively destroy the appeal of discussing anything, though that's probably the majority of staffs desire, to effectively make their jobs easier. Absolutely, but at the very least we get to keep it. Personally I think you should just delete off-topic en...

My thinking is a subforum that only established members can enter, that staff will moderate, and from which people can be banned without kicking them out of the site entirely. [...] "serious" tangents/topics that spring up outside that area will be moved or killed outright, and anyone ban...
