Super Happy Juri Time

May 3, 2010

I’ve had a weird week. My room flooded, my landlord proved useless and I came out in the biggest face rash ever. It was nasty! Then I went off to meet up with some people (mysterious) and received awesome news which I’ll reveal later on this month. It’s a strange direction for me to go in, but certainly worth a try.

I picked up a Hori EX2 arcade stick today. I’ve been looking around for a while for a fightstick and it seemed a good idea to start basic. There is only so much the 360 controller can really do for me and it was about time I got used to the stick, especially seeing that events usually use them when you preview fighting games.

I’m loving it so far, feels responsive and the buttons are nice and bouncy. Plus my Juri has really improved! I managed to pull off her trail number 14 in challenge mode, something I’ve been struggling with for the last day or so. Hopefully my game will improve and I’ll be winning some ranked matches soon enough. Now I’m trying to work out the timing with number 15!

My last month of University has begun and it feels weird that in less than 30 days, I’ll be off for 3-4 months. I’ll be looking for a new place to live and work. It’ll go back to some weird norm where I work 9-6 and bring home a paycheck each month, play games in the evenings and then head to bed early. It’ll be such a strange thing and I know when I head back into education in September/October, I’ll be hating it. I miss working, I miss  the money and as much as it is nice to be a fresh student again (at the age of 23), I just like having that structure in my life.

Anyway, enough talk. It’s time to fight! See you online.

    I’m playing with Juri as well. She’s just great. I’ve completed 15 challenges I must say that the ps3 controller is quite effective when I wanna do quick combos. This game is incredible, besides I’ve got my old thumb callus back so this has really brought back some memories
