Oh this topic is still here.

This is impossible to actually keep songs in BTW. Mika Nakashima and Bonnie Pink's videos keep getting removed from Youtube. Oh well, I found out about KOKIA and added a few songs to the list. I think she's pretty good but what I really like is that I see a love and dedication to what she does that I don't see in almost anyone else.

Out of curiosity, when did all of H-Sacchin's throws get reworked?  I was surprised to see everything untechable.

First version of Current Code.

I thought AAD was always airunblockable for some reason.  :nyoro:

It was. It can now be airblocked, but is still unblockable on the ground.

It is a lot easier than it was before. It used to be something like a 2f window and it's definitely much larger now because j.[C] should be faster.

Also this is really stupid but for reference, you can now do 214B 623{B}, any OTG into 623C. I'm 99% sure 623{B} would not combo before and you could only get an airthrow. This is like 4500 off an overhead but you can get 4500 meterless off her other overhead that's not terrible so w/e it's still not useful.

And just for reference, AAD is now airblockable. They took out the corner trap.

Meh, music rant time. Just heard this song for the first time in years and really listened to it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g2QCjFX6NzA

So, BoA is someone I put on my list of people I don't really care for a very long time ago. I have never tagged her as a terrible singer, but if I could describe her in a single phrase, it would be "Asian Britney Spears." Which means this performance was surprisingly not bad. On the other hand, she is still a pop singer, and the weaknesses shine through with something like this. She doesn't have very much depth in her voice, typical for a pop singer, and especially when she hits low notes her vocal quality seriously diminishes. This seems like a more ambitious song than she can really perform. The instrumentation and musicality of the song itself are good, though, and she is a far better singer than anything I expect out of a typical pop singer.

I think the musical style fits way better with someone like Mika Nakashima. Mika Nakashima makes up for all of the weaknesses BoA shows in this performance, and also the music is very much like the kind of music Mika normally makes in the first place.

Also on another note: Adele. The stuff people say about her is hilarious. Yes, she's not particularly physically attractive and has a very good voice. She reminds me of a better Regina Spektor. But people think she's amazing because she can sing well despite her looks, woo? Just because they aren't popular since public opinion is complete shit and totally random doesn't mean good singers don't exist. Yes, I think Adele is a very good singer, far better than any other American singers I've heard. No, I don't think she has as much talent as Mika Nakashima. No, I don't think she's even close to comparable to Onitsuka Chihiro, in terms of music writing or singing talent. I like that she's popular, but seriously, I don't get what's the big deal. I guess if people weren't so fucking tasteless Adele would be their standard for musicians and not a high point.

oh shit i love lady gaga thanks man
The funny thing is Lady Gaga is the only really popular recent performer* I respect at all because she knows what the fuck a piano is.

*Performer because I would kill myself if I ever called Justin Bieber or T-Pain or Katy Perry a "musician" or "singer"

Akiha's Tea Room / Youtube playlist of shitty music I think is good
« on: March 08, 2011, 08:28:10 PM »
IIRC someone wanted me to suggest music. I said everything Onitsuka Chihiro. Well here's a bunch of songs I listen to that I think are nice from a couple of artists. Also not looking to adding more shit to here because as it turns out a ton of music isn't actually on Youtube, and Mika Nakashima songs are literally impossible to find when not digging for terrible covers because Japan seems to love covering her music.


Yes this thread is retarded but whatever.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ohsa5r8Mf-g at 12:40, Sion's 214b's throw property entirely negates H-Moons autospark? That's haxx...
Everything that counts as a grab does. 214B is a blockable grab.

Someone definitely dodged it vs Hare and punished him for it.
It might be dodgeable but it's definitely very specific. It has a ton of active frames and has a very big hitbox and collision box. Usually if you do something that doesn't hit her out of it from invincibility, it just will push you forward until it does hit.

I've tried it a few times, and it's a pretty weird move. Sometimes it looks like you're completely over the move in the air if she does it at a certain distance and you double jump, but then the collision box shoves you backwards into it as you're coming down anyways. If you dodge, she can just pass through you until the dodge ends and then grabs you during recovery.

Just a random observation, but recently I've been looking at some videos and I've seen Hare go in Blood Heat quite a bit more than other players and then combo in AAD. Not sure if he's doing it for the kicks or not
Satsuki AAD is unescapable in a lot of situations and does more damage when comboed into than almost anything else in the game.

Half the damage is completely unscaled and it's unblockable, undodgeable, unshieldable, and unjumpable. The only way I've seen to get out of it point blank is to do an invincible move.

Do more reviews!
Listen to anything by Onitsuka Chihiro.

Also it doesn't really matter what weeaboos like or don't like. It's just the whole "pop music" thing (in Japan and America) causes tons of people to say singers are good just because they're popular. It's the same problem with people who think Melty Blood/Guilty Gear/Blazblue are amazing because of storyline, every fighting game except for Street Fighter 4 is bad just because SF4 is so popular, CoD:MW2 is the best FPS of all time, etc. The companies that make those games are fine doing what they do, but it becomes a problem if say Blizzard just stopped making SC2 and Diablo III entirely to work on WoW more just because it has more players, which is what happens to Japanese artists that make some popular otaku thing and suddenly make a lot of money.

Okay I can finally talk about this after a week of listening to this shit.

Bonnie Pink 2007-2010
Albums: 3
Songs: 42 (not counting B-side collection)
Actually good: 2 songs
Pop shit that's listenable: 6 songs
Pop shit that's listenable in her 2010 album: 5 songs
Complete j-pop garbage: everything else
Number of people I've seen actually talk about her 1999-2006 music: 0
Number of people who talk about her 2007+ music: 5 page thread on an Ai Otsuka forum
Worst offense: 鐘を鳴らして (theme from Tales of Vesperia) in an album
Even worse offense: Ring a Bell (English version of the theme) in the same album as a bonus track

This is exactly why I hate otaku shit's influence on music. I don't give a shit when people like Utada or Ayumi Hamasaki make complete garbage and get paid way too much, because I don't respect them anyways and don't care about their music, but when a respectable creative songwriter like Bonnie Pink does a single song for some sort of otaku thing that blows up, they turn into complete garbage because suddenly everyone wants to listen to the singer for that crap. Her 2010 album is better, though. At least it shows signs of her going back to stuff more like her 1999-2006 music.

This is one of the only two songs I think are well done: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YRghRp4awaQ&ob=av2n

Fucking music industry. Is it too much to ask for to have actual musicians not have fanbases that cross over into people that don't know shit about music? I guess if you want to find that any more, you have to look to Beethoven and Miles Davis and nothing that's been made within the last 50 years.

3d? what? :emo:

why will you change a game which is fun just to turn it into a simple graphicwhore game like all others they're launching endlessy everyday for years now? this way of thinking was what almost killed fighters once, because no one likes 3d fighters but (very) casual players.

seriously, if you guys really like 3d that much go and play another game and leave MB for us who likes fighters in its true and best form: 2d. you can always play wii and download the last-gen mmo's and quit it when they launch a newer anyway, cant you?
Tekken 6 is the most popular fighting game in the world and the Japanese Tekken community is much bigger than the community for any other fighting game.

Oh hey now that my music library is less disorganized I have a better way to decide what artists I actually listen to. Here's all the artists on the playlist I usually listen to that have multiple songs:

BENNIE BECCA (technically BENNIE K ft. Becca)
JUDY AND MARY (technically YUKI before she started doing solo music)
Regina Spektor
Crystal Kay

There's a couple of artists I need to find music for and listen to when I get the chance, though. Mainly Shela, some more 矢井田瞳, and YOSHIKA.


S+: 鬼束ちひろ, 広瀬香美
B: m-flo, HALCALI, 矢井田瞳, 山本領平
KIND OF UPSET THIS MUSIC IS HERE TIER: 安室奈美恵, Heartsdales, Crystal Kay, LISA

Also this tier list is meaningless because outside of the bottom tier every artist there I consider at least S tier compared to most music I don't listen to.

I suck.

Also because I want to make myself cry this playlist does have a 宇多田ヒカル song, a Tenmon song, the 山崎まさよし song from the ending of 5 Centimeters Per Second, and a melody. song. I'm tempted to purge it because Utada and anime shit is so terrible, but First Love is the only remotely good Utada song and I actually think Shinkai anime and the music he chooses for them is good. I have no excuse for melody. though because she's a total garbage pop singer.

Ryougi got normals nerfed anyways.

I need shit to listen to while at work.

Also if I'm on a show people can bitch about how I sound like a girl again and I don't actually play games.

I was never a big fan of the armor system... it makes pokeouts kinda bad and antiairs really shitty. Maybe this is a good change! Also, is the input buffer still 12f? I don't think anyone has gotten an answer yet
Input Buffer was never 12f in arcade, only console. It was 8f in arcade IIRC.

Arcade version is definitely not going to be pointless because I'm sure most Japanese players are like the people in Austin. Everyone that plays Melty has never really played the console port but play it exclusively at the arcade. When you have an arcade around you for a community meetup like they do in Japan, it just seems silly to meet at someone's place to play something when everyone hangs out at the arcade already. It's the same reason that while everyone can play SSF4 at home, tons of people still go to UFO to play it where the machines are set up so you have to pay for time on the console version. Without SSF4, most Japanese players would never even have seen the console characters in SF4, and likewise without MBAACC most Japanese players would never see Ryougi. When there's an arcade presence, the will to play console versions of games just isn't there, even when the console versions have more features and end up costing less money.

« on: July 23, 2010, 04:25:31 AM »
Throws are comparatively worse in MB than in other fighting games. Street Fighter throws are much more rewarding and beats a lot more random stuff. That said, they're still 3f startup moves, so they will beat things slower than them.

The problem with throws in MB is that they usually don't lead to anything, don't do much damage, and have very low range.

« on: July 16, 2010, 02:59:01 PM »
If there was actual input lag people would notice. It's not about it being synced for both players, but if there was input lag people would notice. 3f is long enough that it's obvious when you push a button and the actual input comes up 1/20th of a second later. It's noticeable in one of the console ports of ST that had 2f of input lag.

And 3f of input lag makes certain things not work. Vakiha's (in MBAC, should be the same for Crescent in MBAA) 2A is a lvl 1 move so it has 12 frames of hitstun. 5C has 10 frames of startup. This means it's a 3f hitconfirm from 2A to 5C. If there's 3f of input lag, this confirm is literally impossible.

Update: I'm getting more used to the gameplay, but I still have problems properly applying dem fighting game fundamentals to it. Also, I'm liking Full Moon more and more, especially F-Aoko, F-Akiha, and F-Mech Hisui. But I'll still play Ryougi in Half-Moon. Also, what's the best way to learn Sacchin? The changes made to her throws make me worse at playing as her.

Try to learn her bnb and then quit because she sucks.

But...why? :psyduck:
Because Satsuki is seriously one of the least rewarding characters to play. Her bnb is one of the hardest in the game, and she's still low tier. Not that it means that much in this game, but the issue isn't the tier itself, but why she's low tier: her neutral game is really bad and oki is very good. So it's a gigantic pain to actually hit someone with her but if you do they can get trapped pretty easy in mixups. Still, this leads to situations like me sitting in the corner against HTohno for like 10 games in a row and no matter what button I press and what button the opponent presses Satsuki somehow manages to lose because her normals aren't good.

I mean, if you really want to. I haven't played Melty in like months because I'm awful and can't deal with the Satsuki execution barrier. She has a lot of the same problems as traditional grapplers, but I play Tager in BB because I can actually do his combos and Satsuki's combos made me want to quit this game.
