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.

Our first look at how to build out the Borderlands 2 classes starts off with Maya, the Siren. Let's see how her 3 skill trees work.

Let's start off with my least favorite tree, Harmony (the center tree). Here's a link to the build if you want to follow along.

I really don't like the "Scorn" cap on this tree, as you can see at the end of the video, it's very easy to hit yourself with it. Some of the other skills like the "Res" game changer in the middle of the tree, are only useful in co-op, so you'd likely want to re-spec if you ever played solo and put that point to better use somewhere else in the tree. In a full team of 4, and with a good Heavenly Nurse class mod, this build can greatly improve the survivability of everyone in the group. In fact, you should probably move the 5 points in recompense into Elated if you have 3 or more players as it will be less about your survival and more about the health of the group as a whole.

A how-to guide for unlocking the three extra characters in Street Fighter Zero 3 (Alpha 3).

Local Gouki user Guano brought over his new UD-CPS2 system with a copy of the Japaneese Street Fighter Zero 3 (alpha 3 in the US). GoukiJones wanted to play as Juni, a favorite from back in the day when alpha was the new game in town.

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. :)

Zero2990's Dead Island character build (Sam B)

By: Zero2990 Aug 20, 2012 | 5 Comments

I decided to start creating character builds because I see to many newbs online

So some of us was excited for Dead Island before release, No? Well I was and it turned out to be a pretty shitty game, that was before I looked at character builds that make this game actual fun.. Yes Dead Island is actually fun, can you imagine? 

So the last week I've been playing as the top hat sporting power house/rapper Sam B. Some people online have no idea how Sam should be played and opt for the machine gun approach, not in this build. I'll have you cracking undead skulls in no time.. From Lv1 as a matter of fact. This build looks at Combat and Survival skills only, Sams Fury tree may seem fun but it's about as useful as ...

FFXIV How to travel for cheap - Save dat GIL

By: goukijones Sep 9, 2013 | 0 Comments

Yeah you can teleport yourself anywhere in the game, if you've touch the local Artheyehe, but you can also ride a chocobo out there for next to nothing. Plus it's on auto-pilot. Go take a piss or do a stretch you Jimmy!

So whenever you get out to a new area always touch the Crystal so you can tele right? Okay, also talk to the Chocobo porter to see where he can take you & for how much. Most porters outside of town can take you BACK to town for very cheap. Later on in the game the porter in town will start to unlock more & more areas to travel to. This will save you a ton of money early on in the game. Gimmie dat GIL!

Thanks for reading.

All gamers know that controllers break down and stop working after hours upon hours of usage, but what if I told you that there was a controller out there that could handle all of that AND it was one of a kind, made just for you? Well, there is....

 

Gamers across all platforms have come across an ongoing problem within our hobby: CONTROLLERS BREAKING. If you’re anything like me, you’ve gone through a few dozen controllers throughout your gaming career and are SICK OF IT. That’s a lot of money that could’ve been put towards new games and even my Xbox Live subscription! However, I’ve gotten my hands on my very own Xbox Design Lab controller that I think is the solution to our problems. I know most of you are thinking that The Lab is purely for cosmetic customization, which is what it’s supposed to be, BUT I’ve found out that they can be much more than that.

Borderlands 2 Pro-Tip: How to glitch and beat Pete the Invincible

By: Arthvader Jan 20, 2013 | 4 Comments | Updated: Jan 21, 2013

Goukijones, Batrasterd, and I take on Pete the Invincible using a glitch to our advantage.

On Wednesday, January 16, Goukijones, Batrasterd, and I went and took on the raid boss of Mr. Tourge's Campaign of Carnage, Pete the Invincible. During the course of this particular fight, though, we ended up getting Pete into a spot where he essentially got stuck, allowing us to defeat him without much issue.

The bank in Borderlands 2 is less than half the size of the one in the original game. This glitch will get you around that and let you store as many items as you want in your bank. No mods needed!

A slow month of games leads to a FFT re-play on the PSN. How great was this game?

I remember playing through Final Fantasy Tactics back on the PS one, flipping my machine upside down to keep the disk from skipping... LOL HACKS! Back then, I got stuck on fighting Weigraf one-on-one. It probably took me 20 tries before I changed myself to a chemist (for the long ranged gun attacks as well as the healing items) with the squire's "guts" ability as my secondary so I could "yell" myself to speed up until I eventually got 5 turns for every 1 Weigraf got.

FFT is a turn-based strategy game played on a grid like maps, your units can only move a certain amount of squares in any direction on any one turn, and unless you have some special attacks, you can only attack what is right next to you. Positioning is very important as you have a better chance for success if you attack from the side or rear of an enemy.

There are 20 job classes  to choose from, and you can turn any of your party into whatever job you want, though you have to level up certain classes before others become available. For instance, you need to be a level 2 archer before you can become a thief. Each class has useful abilities, so you'll probably want to spend a little time as almost all of them. Even if you don't like the thief class, you'll definitely want it's move+2 ability that lets you move 2 extra squares per turn!

You get to use the powers from the class you are currently in, plus one more as a secondary ability. You also get to choose a counter ability (you can counter attack, or automatically drink a health potion when you're attacked, or maybe you like the ninja's "sunken state" turning you invisible when you get attacked), and a passive ability (usually giving you another characteristic of the class it's from, like the black mage's "magic attack up" which lets you deal more damage with your magic attacks). Finally, there's a movement ability, like the aforementioned "move+2" or the always fun "ignore height" that lets you leap tall buildings in a single bound.

Each class can equip varying types of weapons, shields, headgear, armor, and accessories to increase your hit points, magic points, speed, and power. Female warriors are super lucky as they get to wear ribbons (which prevent all negative status effects) as headgear and the super-rare perfumes as accessories. The perfume I have on Agrias, my most powerful female knight, gives her health regen and automatic re-raise if she dies. She's basically immortal, and the ribbon in her hair prevents any ailments that would otherwise disable her like petrify, don't move, confuse, charm, and many more. She's a little unfair. Unfortunately, you can't choose the sex of your main character, you're stuck with a dude... I named him "Jimmy" of course. Jimmy has the ninja's "two swords" ability allowing him to equip a sword in each hand and deal two blows per turn. He's currently a squire with the samurai's "draw out" ability as a back up. Oh, and the Move+3 ability of the bard class. This lets him move far, attack hard twice or use an area of affect samurai skill, and if he can't quite reach an enemy on the first turn, he can use "scream" to give himself speed +1, power+1, magic+1, and brave+10 in one go.

I had so much fun leveling up my characters and buying/finding new gear for them. It was a bit sad when the game was over, but there is always the deep dungeon to explore. Seriously, this is one of those games where it's more fun to level up and try new stuff than it is to play through the story missions. I only wish there were more human enemies in the random battles as fighting the monsters isn't quite as fun (and makes some of your skills like "weapon break" useless).

I played the version on PSN on my PS3, which is the same version from the PS1 days. There is also the enhanced "war of the lions" version which was originally for PSP, but is now available for iPhone. The gameplay's the same, you'll just get a better translation (though the "engrish" in the original is part of its charm IMHO) and some animated cut scenes instead of the in-engine dialog for some of the story. I'd recommend either version, but since the PSN one is only $10 versus the $15 they want for the iPhone version (and I like playing on the big-screen), I'd go for the PSN one first if you've got a PS3.
