Confessions

I had no idea that E3 started today. After the console announcement excitement of last year very little anyone could say will have any effect on me. Nothing short of the next offline Elder Scrolls title will see me flee my desk at lunch to pre-order the special edition. Come to think of it, there really isn't much that I am looking forward...

..to...

What was that? Phantom Dust is real?



Well fuck me running.

...

As with all new relationships the shine has come off of my love for Decapre. Playing and losing with her in ranked for several hours will do that. I finally did what I tried so hard to avoid: reverted to my main just to gain meaningless points. Decapre is fun but I am not convinced that she is going to be any good, at least not the way that I am trying to play her. I play my charge character very defensively - you come to me, I will anti-air or out poke you and then I will come in while you are trying to figure out how to get to me. Decapre can't pull this off because, at her core, she is still Cammy.

Cammy doesn't do defense. She deals in ambiguous mixups and unblockables. Decapre does the same without the advantage of command combo enders. I have not given up her, but she will certainly not work in certain match ups. Hugo comes to mind, getting close to him equal death.

...

I am still playing Watch_Dogs and for some reason enjoying it. This is not a defensible position as, like Decapre, I am not convinced that the game is any good. Parts of it, like racing through streets through the rain, are excellent. I keep coming back looking for those moments and finding them just often enough to sustain me.
