Went to a Soul Calibur competition yesterday and absolutely thrashed the competition. Only one guy stood a chance against me and actually won a match thanks to a very cheeky ring out.
Got a limited edition strategy guide along with the soundtrack for my effort. It's a bit silly that I'd have to win a competition in order to get a strategy guide I don't need because I know the game well enough to kick ass anyway.
At least it explains what you have to do to unlock the treasure in Tower of Souls mode.

Nice one.

I actually don't get strategy guides so much for hints and tips as the artwork, interviews and extra bits and pieces they tend to add to them. Just a good book to accompany the series, as the telly man might say.

I want to play Rock Band with you all online as well. In fact, if that's 4 of us then we have a full band there. Jimmay557 is my gamertag.

I got a load of mates over on Friday and we played 7 player Rock Band. 2 singers, a bassist, guitarist and 3 people playing the drums. I'll post the pictures up in a bit.

Well done!

I've played 4 ranked games online and lost all of them so far. I don't get the matchmaking though. I'm level 1 with 0 wins, and I'm being matched against level 30 and 40 people, with 100s of wins and 50 odd losses. Doesn't seem particularly even.

Maybe I'm used to Halo's excellent matchmaking and skill matching system, but this seems way out of wack. Perhaps there just isn't enough people playing.

The matchmaking probably isn't a lot different, it's just there's probably a hell of a lot less people playing that than there are people playing Halo. The game's got the option of putting you in a badly balanced match or not giving you a match at all, so presumably that's the best it can do at the time.

I seem to be addicted to the Zelda crossbow for the Wii. Even the stupid little game that it came with.. Maybe I have some aggression issues because I just love shooting things.. Especially the giant watermelons <lol>

Alas this guide isn't quite up to that standard. It's a move list and single player walk through and that's it. Even the art is old hat because it's all in the games museum mode. Shame really.

It is a crappy system isn't it? Playing at my friends place the other day it became apparent that a lot of the higher level players are cheap, system cheating fools. My friend is a high level (approaching 40) and has a very hard time playing anyone for the following reasons - low level players wont touch him because of his near 2-1 win ratio and the seemingly large numbers of high level cheaters only play low level newbies to boost their level.
The sheer number of times we were matched, and rematched straight after in many cases, to a high level cheater who instantly quited the session was stupid. Ten minutes searching for somone actually willing to start a match is pretty crappy. And you can't leave feedback for the lobby quitters to avoid them because you actually have to play a match to give feedback.

From GH3? Lazy buggers. And End of Heartache is a better song to boot.

True, but it's probably Roadrunner trying to push their later albums.

Yeah, most people find a strategy that works online because its hard to counter due to the small amounts of lag. To be honest I'm a bit bored of th eonline section of the game now. Theres not even half the skill involved as fighting someone siting next to you as guard impacts.throw evades are for the most part thrown out of the equation.

Shame really.

Grats on winning the competition though mon frere wink.gif

Finally got up to the Pokemon League on Diamond.

Only took me 84 hours.

It'll be at least another 6 before I face the Elite Four; my crazy system requires that I raise me team from ~Lv82 to Lv90 before I start.

well, that was thirteen well spent hours. jolly good fun, if a little scary...
a couple of questions;

would i be right in thinking that i should play it again with the other character?

how different is it?

is it safe to say that i should invest in the other 'resident evil' games, if i enjoyed this one?

I'd say yes, although I'd stick to 2, 3 and 4 which is a bit different and has more action.
