Regardless, parrying every move in a super, including an air parry, then countering it with your own super, whilst under all that pressure takes massive skill.

Re: Retro Gaming Discussion

Parrying fireballs is easy though, it almost completely removes the usefulness of fireballs from the game which pissed off a lot of people (myself included).

Re: Retro Gaming Discussion

I never played SF3 enough to get that into it as I borrowed it off a friend, thought it was poo cause I couldnt pick E.Honda and gave it back after a week.

Also, for someone like me who sucks balls at technical fighters, that segment of play was pretty fucking sweet to watch.

Parrying a super doesn't make you a god.

lol I'm not doubting Daigo's skill. And pressure means absolutely nothing to him, since he's just a pure beast.

Re: Retro Gaming Discussion

Totally bought Perfect Dark for the N64 today. Never played it before, and can't currently play it fully (waiting on my expansion pack from ebay), but I hear great things about it.

Also picked up Banjo Kazooie, Banjo Tooie and Blast Corps for the N64 over the last few days .

The way you wrote it, I interpreted that you were playing that particular event down saying it was great, but anyone could do it.

I for one could not, so for someone who has little experience from playing 2D fighters bar Killer Instinct, Mortal Kombat, and SF2, that was quite special for me to watch.
