The Top 6 Most Powerful Characters In Street Fighter Canon

By: starlordtitus Jan 29, 2013 | 6 Comments

The most powerful Street Fighter characters made appearances throughout many games. Coming down to the Top 6 was down right close. But behold, the most prestige fighters in all of Street Fighter.

6. Ryu

Ryu is perhaps the most famous character in the Street Fighter series. His humble beginnings to his uprising in ability to topple the giant champions of the world made him the fighter we all wished to be. The hero of Street Fighter and overall legend, he is known for usually snatching victory from the jaws of defeat.

With the right cross class abilities you can manipulate HQ items 3-4 levels ahead of you. You can make a ton of money while leveling up. Read my biggest crafting secrets right now. Watch exclusive video of my techniques in always get HQ items.

I'm buying HQ raw materials & HQing them into more HQ materials. Any material that stacks to 99 is my favorite to level up on. For example. I'll make HQ Dew Thread from HQ Diremite Web I purchased at the market place. There's always some random Jimmy that post a couple real cheap. I buy those until I have a stack of like 60+ & I'm ready to craft. 

Here's a look at what I think our the most important crafting cross class abilities in FFXIV. 

#1 Tricks of the Trade (Alchemy)
It randomly gives you 20CP back. You get this to pop 5 times, that's 100 CP back. Spend that extra CP on another Master's Mend & get 3 more chances. 

#2 Careful Synthesis (Weaver)
Guaranteed. This ability guarantees progress. It'll get yuu slightly less progress than Basic Synthesis, but you can figure out what that number is going to be right away & decide where & how to use this ability. Plan you entire synth around Careful Synthesis being the last thing you do.

#3 Rumination (Carpenter)
This ability also gives you CP back & does not cost any durability.
           "Removes Inner Quiet effect and restores CP proportional to the number of times control was increased."
Turn on Inner Quiet immediately. Wait for a chance to use Tricks of the Trade & move on. Watch any of my crafting videos for this technique.

#4 Hasty Touch (Culinarian)
This move will improve quality with no CP. BUT it's 50/50. I'm not sure if Steady Hand effects this ability. Either way, it is the 4th best ability to choose from. Imagine you're down to 17CP & 20 Durability. Use Hasty Touch for the hell of it. It's a free chance to increase quality.

#5 Rapid Synthesis (Armorer)
Just like Hasty Touch, this ability is 50/50. I really don't know what to say about this ability. It might get you out of a jam if you ever miscalculate a synth or make a mistake. It rushes down progress at 250%.

#6 Waste Not (Leatherworker)
This cost 56CP. I don't like anything that costs CP because I only want to use that for Basic Touch.

#7 Manipulation (Goldsmith)
This cost 88CP! Can't use this, Master's Mend & get 3 or more Basic Touchs off.  It just doesn't work. I can't afford that CP.

#8 Ingenuity (Blacksmith)
             "Lowers recipe level to current level for the next five steps."
I'm already HQing stuff 4-5 levels ahead of me. You can't do stuff 10 levels ahead of you, so why would you ever need this?

Check out my crafting videos coming soon.

Borderlands 2 Axton the Commando build guide

By: BatRastered Mar 30, 2013 | 1 Comments

Axton has quickly moved up my list of favorite characters in BL2, his turret action skill is quite good on its own, but with the right skills and weapons you can do the work of two players by yourself.

First the Survival Tree, I'm not a big fan of this.

Build here: http://talent.87bazillion.com/2/commando.php?41030000005500010000055050130151

You can see the relative offensive weakness of this build at about 4:45 in the video I throw a turret on each side of a basic loader, and I still have to kill it myself. I don't recommend the turret without the rocket pods. :) If you had 3 more points you could get the Scorched Earth rocket pods too. So with the 11 levels coming April 2, that's what I'd suggest first. If I did this over, I'd probably go with the rockets over the longbow just for the damage boost, but mag-lock without longbow is not very useful and Battlefront (extra damage when the turret is out for all your guns and grenades) is just so damn useful that I can't really recommend either version of this build unless you get the level cap DLC and get all 3 this build falls apart.

Now the Guerilla tree, the fun starts to pick up.

http://talent.87bazillion.com/2/commando.php?52550115115100000000015050110000

This is a good damage build with decent survivability. It allows the turret to slag, which is useful and will be even better in the upcoming third play through. The turret also has rocket pods and a shield. As far as Axton himself, he gets to carry 5 extra grenades and his shield will be recharging quickly most of the time. This is a good build that will only get better with the 11 new levels, allowing you to either add longbow and battlefront or get the twin Gemini turrets. Very versatile.

Finally we get to Gunpowder. NUKE!

http://talent.87bazillion.com/2/commando.php?51050100005500315015115010000000

This build is a great all around build as well, you still get the rocket pods from Guerilla and a good amount of defense, but you get a ton of DPS both from your nuke turret (basically an awesome, rechargeable grenade) and the use of the Battlefront skill. You'll note the Kerblaster assault rifle in the video shoots a projectile that explodes, drops a grenade and explodes again. This works with all the grenade damage boost skills too so this is my current favorite high DPS build. With 11 more skill points you can reach the slag turret too (double up, at the bottom of Guerilla tree) which will make this build very useful for the third play through. Also, nuking things is fun. :)

Gamer Girls-The Rare Breed Of Gamer

By: starlordtitus May 26, 2011 | 15 Comments

Today we look into the uniqueness of girls who play video games.....for real. Not the "Show me how to play, it looks like fun" type but the kind that make you say "Whoa there's a girl at this tournament?".

While over the years the quantiity of girls playing video games has increased, the idea of girls playing competitively still brings a feeling of astoundment. We've all seen it, a girl walks in to pick up the controller or gets online and you hear her voice and immediately you wonder "Who's this girl?'. Even more so at tournaments, guys stare in wonder at the girl with a tournament fight stick. 

Many times people may often wonder why enough girls don't play video games. And in truth, it has to do more with responsibility than anything else. To be frank, most girls don't play video games quite like guys do due to the fact that their concerns are directed towards survival. Bills of the house, food for the family, and work. Other activities that draw their attention are shopping, exercise, friends, and don't even get me started on boyfriends. Some girls may never really get into video games because of these factors and may view them even as a loss of time. Others, play them casually, getting together with friends and usually playing video games that involve a large group of people such as Guitar Hero, Mario Party, etc.

But while some girls may not play video games, there's no denying the growing appeal in video games, and slowly but surely, girls are beginning to have an increase of interest. More commonly than most, girls begin to play video games usually when they are introduced to them. With a large number of them due to their boyfriends. Lots of men have tried it at least once. They have a love for their woman and a love for video games. Why not put them both in the same room? Joy! :D From here on out it goes one of two ways depending on your method, you either do it wrong and beat them at EVERYTHING xD resulting in the girl losing total interest in video games because she's "not good" at them, or, you start them off on a gradient. A game that's simple and they end up winning. Everyone enjoys winning, that's a simple fact. If the girl wins at a video game, it will bring that feeling of accomplishment and by consequence increase her confidence in playing, resulting in her being more open to play more. As her skill increases, you can introduce her to more complicated games and so forth.

But what if the girl in question is already good? What if she's damn good!? These types of girls have always had great appeal to guys of the gaming world. Looks and personality of course play a role, but it's like 100 instant brownie points if a girl is great at video games. Many times if the girl is appealing enough, guys will try their luck and try to talk to them. Confident guys usually get a conversation going. But as any one guy who's tried to play mack daddy pimp would know, you never go in assuming she's yours from the get go. Of course, don't be so shy you don't even talk to her like 65% of the guys at tournaments do xD These girls are like any other girl aside from the fact that they have video games in common with you. They like to be treated with respect and like it when you make them laugh. Under some circumstances though, video games have brought men and women together and have even resulted in marriage. Such examples have been seen where they met online while playing a game. Personally, I have a friend named Jay whose mother met her current fiancee on XBOX LIVE.

In conclusion, girls that play video games are a pretty solid group, ranging from casual to hardcore. I myself can appreciate a girl who has the committment to be lethal at a video game. It makes it easy to kill two birds with one stone, you have a girl over AND you get to play video games. About the only thing missing is a feast. But then again, as gamers, who doesn't have a feast after we play :D

 

This is a video about a japanese girl playing competitively at Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition. I admire her patience and technique.
