Even he was amazed and cheered me as we watched the grade screen, before he left. Not bad.

I am happy with the journey that Elena and I have travelled. See you again in the next adventure!!

░▒▓█ The Kenyan Struggle

Fought an opponent with an extremely old keyboard today where I managed to rake up a few wins. I used Elena, in her original outfit colour, and I used her Super Art III that is Healing. Yeah, you got it.

Photobucket
Down for the fourth time. Edging.


Photobucket
There, my African Rose does it.


To rack up a few more wins with Ken or even Ryu that some people seemed to have managed, is ordinary and pales in comparison. And I will aim to get even more. It's been a fun ride.

░▒▓█ Love and Games don't always go together.

I used to frequent a video game shop in the city when I was a little boy. It wasn't the most spectacular shop, many of their games for the later systems were quite expensive and I often go there to see just what they have, though as you understand I don't always buy from them.

I also remember one night when this particular guy came by - I think I could have seen him once or twice there before - playing the games at the display counter. He was in long-sleeved business attire, he wore glasses, he looked very adult, like in his twenties or thirties, he seemed to have some problems of sorts and he doesn't look like one who should be in a place like this. Totally out of place.

You know, I have friends no doubt, but I usually don't like to have anything to do society, long before I even started on playing video games, so I looked at him in the commonly faint disregard as would the others. No discrimination. When I was there I saw that he was playing Bust-A-Move 3 on the white Sega Saturn (proud to own this piece though the manual was black-and-white inside thanks to Sega's strict and far-seeing fiscal policy) and was at a stage that looked far into the game - I saw the picture of the bubble-bursting dragons on a hot-air balloon - before he died. Then he. Continued. He. Continued. The disregard was deeper. Plainly speaking, I despised him.

So I looked at the games elsewhere in the shop, and then back to the showcase, where I heard a talk going on between the shop staff - two ladies - and the would-be customer that was him. They were in some sort of a conversation that I couldn't recall, it must be too forgettable for me not to, and then one of them was notably saying something like "you can come to our shop anytime to talk to us, relax and play games, but we cannot be in love with you." He responded in protest, and the other, which seemed the less vocal of the two, nodded and said "we are not interested in you".

Out of curiosity I looked at them when that bit was going on. The ladies seemed firm and even, pretty disgusted (they felt violated in some way by his propositions), while the man seemed to bear a surprised, whining-in-protest and defeated expression. I used to think that adults know it all and have the ways and answers, and run the world in their automatic coming-of-age knowledge and maturity, but the scary thing for all of us is, almost all of them don't. They are as and if not even more clueless, and they are not above doing pretty stupid things (that I once thought were spectacular when I read about their urban exploits and exposés in the dailies) too in public.

Photobucket
Haha yeah right.


Photobucket
Nah, she was kidding. Just proceed without a care in the world.

Photobucket
He can't take it for sure.

Alright our dearest working class urban hero, you made it, and it's now time for you to go home to your exciting and heroic existence. Good night. Your legendary life awaits you tomorrow.

░▒▓█ A startling conversation with an insurance seller on the unsung heroes of our time.

I had a friendly chat with an insurance seller a long time ago. We touched on the usual pleasantries and on society, and then shared observations on the arcade scene and the various kinds of people we noticed in it. Naturally we went on to those fearsome and incredible urban champions who do competitive games like Street Fighter like their lives depended on it. I asked him if he would like to be one, or even for the Third World King of Fighters that he liked better. He said I need to eat, and asked me the same question. I asked if he had gone out of his mind. What a preposterous proposition! But in a joking way of course as we were both in good-natured sarcasm.

I told him about the scene in the city central. Those people who go there to play IV, Super Turbo and Zero 3 in their long-sleeved office attire - the salarymen - right after work in the evening till late at night. He was unfazed, until I asked him if they are actually anything more than humble executives or at best, managers. Would Directors and CEOs have the time to devote to playing games at the arcade after office hours? Would they show themselves so easily, and to be seen doing such a thing in such a place at such a length of time in their business garb. I told him to go think for himself.

He gave a pause, then replied that he wouldn't want to be associated with such people. Standing next to them, makes me feel nothing but disgrace, he added. His damning and yet extremist response towards them made me laugh immediately on hearing it.

This person does have some entertainment value after all.

░▒▓█ The powerful declarations of a female Western imperialist.

I had a conversation with a self-proclaimed self-made lady and prior to that interesting development I caught her signature statement that read like this:

"Life is not a game. Serve no master. We are not pawns. Be not beguiled by and trust not in lies and sages, but believe in the truth within one’s own heart.."


Wooooow I was so touched... The first sentence was so fun and radical enough not to make enough sense. Following that was a quiet class insistence, a disrespect for knowledgeable older men who lived in the earlier days that finalised with a pained attempt at some critical thinking.

I bet she was hurt, angry and crying when she was writing this. Oh dear. Because she is female her statement naturally sounded weak and so I feel for her. This myriad of confusing and overwhelming emotions...

I picture this angel, wannabe, rallying the remaining miserable and impoverished mindless fellow slaves who are still suffering from the WTF Syndrome as they are fighting the Last Resistance at the end of days. Understandably they are in a literal quagmire where they are caught between a ravaging fire in the dead of the night and the better-equipped militia of the New World Order oligarchs. On the look of their faces you can tell that they are as bitter and angry, but more importantly they also appear more desperate and are begging for hope, as is usual with the masses during election rallies in better times.

"We will buy anything even though we know you’re as bullshit as the other guys. Just give us some hope, say something in that direction and make us feel good again, especially in such difficult and confusing times!"

"Make us believe in the system and make us want to vote for you."

Ah, so much for the fight for self-determination. Why even begin this worthless opposition I ask.

Her repetitive demands for respect and that she is dead serious made me realise what I had been suspecting all along – that her declaration is nothing more than her recognition of herself as a victim of her own gender, and for the same belief, a victim of life.

Take care lady.

PS In case you fail to get it, I do not see them of any capability to turn the planned tide. Not even her. They beg even as they fight and they all have no life so they focus on the negative and the possible-negative that can hardly be changed. They can only hope, if not dream. If these are not overachievers I wouldn't know how else to categorise them.

░▒▓█ A sincere apology from one of those, types.

DISCLAIMER: THIS ARTICLE IS MEANT FOR PARODY PURPOSES. NO OTHER INTENTION IS INVOLVED IN ANY DEGREE.

Exclamation Rakurai's apology to the UK Fighting Games Scene






Hi everyone, Rakurai here.
Photobucket
Hee hee hee.

Photobucket
In case people... couldn't properly see the prankish Union Jack representation :P

Hello.

First and foremost, I want to clear up some of the myths that have many of you have been wondering in the past few months with myself and Rudi.

I've probably in the fighting game scene for 8 years. Out of those 8 years, all of it has been dedicated to learning 3rd strike. This is a VERY long time to dedicate to a single fighting game, especially if you have been bought up learning from the arcade and competitive environments, and to be quite honest - most people would think you don't really have an excuse to be at minimum above average or considered one of the 'top' in the scene.

This is 100000000000000.0% nerd overdrive. With great experience comes great expectations. There is a saying "the higher you climb, the heavier you fall". Nobody told you to do this, and you failed to deliver - for which no tangible reward comes even if you do. If this is not stupidity then I don't know what is.

People learn at different rates,

Doesn't take a scientist to figure this out, but most people are dumb anyway, go on.

and after the events over the past few months and that humiliating 'upset' from Saturday night's 3s SVB group, it shows how some people can quite frankly rip those 8 years of experience with only 1 year's worth of training.

Why is this surprising? Why do some old people always feel so conceited just because they have only something that is as ordinary as, experience? Is it really everything and entitles one to everything other than the usual preachiness and self-assumed seniority? And why should they even feel this is logic-defying?

In all things, you may need experience to gain knowledge, but more importantly, you must have not only PERSEVERANCE, but also, TALENT. Um, like me (not again) for example hahaha, how I could win other older Asians in the real city central arcade using SUPER ORIGINAL BALROG in Super Street Fighter II: Turbo when I just begun seriously exploring it a bit just months back, compared to their entire youth (that part of their lives is supposed to be the brightest) wasted on this whole bull thing since it first came out in '94. Oh there are people among these overachievers who STARED AT ME when I took the original boxer, but I knew what I was doing anyway, and I did it.

I made a fucking complete fool of myself, I lost my cool - I demanded to the judge to forfeit all my remaining games so I can go off and sulk in my car.

Photobucket

To be quite frank, I have completely ashamed myself as a player.

Um hmm?


But this wasn't the first time I 'blew' up in this manner, or behaved like a fucking douchebag towards players in real life. For those who remembered the days of Omega Sektor in Birmingham, I used to give Jinty the same belittling treatment by accusing people for being crap, boring and flow-chart-like online, and how I would boast about being the better player etc. - I paid deeply for this arrogance when he turned me into a club sandwich by destroying me offline. This is exactly what I've been doing to Rudi for the past few months.

I would like to think that the events of yesterday generally built up from other factors surrounding it - particularly from the stresses of quitting my job before I could get sacked about 2 months ago (living the chunkis life lol), my general OTT frustration of not finding any reasonable opponents online and being disadvantaged for not having a decent offline scene in the west midlands for 3s, the SF4 impact on the 3s scene, and NO offence to the Neo-Empire staff as it was probably beyond their control - but also due to the fact that 3s was mistreated on the respect of setups being provided by the players and not the venue, and the my group having to be overrun on Saturday rather than being played on Friday.

So where does this leave me? I really don't have a fucking clue what to do. As I speak, I am probably thinking that I'm pretty much the 'Dan' of the scene right now, and I'm pretty fucking ashamed to show my face at any offline event again.

Photobucket
He's not you and you're not him. After learnng of your willful unemployment and more importantly, your blasphemy, he went all the way to find you hiding out in your native English toilet and bashed you up good before leaving.


Without a scratch in a one-hit combo frenzy as you can see here. Even the hooligans who caught wind of his dramatic manoeuvres and his comic relief on BBC 7 earlier were all too scared to interfere.

*For those not-too-familiar with the English language let alone those annoying abbreviations these ground zero street people throw out at times OTT simply means over-the-top.


Frankly why should Capcom or anyone really care about ghetto games (meaning poor sales turnout) like Third Strike when all the others including especially the latest Street Fighter IV outsells in popularity as well? I realise the retailers are right when it comes to certain games not given the same attention, or even translated out of Japland, because they just aren't as appealing to foreigners - some couldn't even take off at all. I all along was being deceived by those consumer asses repetitively asking why this game wouldn't be brought in, why that game which was so fun wasn't released again, etc. Those people who made the complaints and who did not understand the market situation form but the Minority Report. I should really have ignored their nonsense. Damn.

My reasons for playing fighting games are completely different to everyone else.

Photobucket
Wow he's so unique and cool, like the non-generic East Coaster Alex. Not.

I started to take it up a lot more seriously, when I hear that players were getting sponsored to enter tournaments and huge income opportunities just for having a talent in fighting games -


I think our English friend here is grossly informed (which also means misinformed) by whatever sources he has led himself to. The one powerful word I reiterate that you have also distracted yourself from which is: Talent. Like I said earlier:

Photobucket
* What his opponents at home would say to him.
** What I would say to him.

But let him speak.


and finally realised that this is just a dream which probably 90% of the fighting gamers can only dream of achieving.

Photobucket
I got rich because I spent my younger days playing Street Fighter!!!


Excuse me? I am actually SURPRISED (yes this appears but now it is in a different context) that there are people who actually HOPE to make money off playing - fighting games that are within the humblest sphere within the humble sphere of video games? Really. Should people even THINK like that? Oh and I thought these games are just supposed to be fun and to be enjoyed with good friends, no? Hahaha make money off it. Even Tomo Ohira (they say he's good although I have never managed to watch his arcade versus footage) in imperialist Amerikkka where the money truly is realised that being a pretty talented expert in Street Fighter still gets him nowhere other what he thought was the series going down and so he got out early, got a job, got paid and got married.

Nothing much has changed since those promising times of the 90s, nope. Even those more competent LAN (local area network) gaming nerds in this new age get much more recognition and sponsorships than their fighting counterparts. 90%? I don't think 90% of the gamers are that gay in wasting time dreaming of just a few more crumbs from the table of the capitalists as even those at the top don't get that much to begin with. And maybe you can't get on top and be recognised because you're still not smart and nerdy enough. Like, do you know the Art of Fighting, to be the King of Fighters?

Photobucket

I sense you are not confident in giving yourself an affirmative answer.

I also believe that this is but a genetical culture issue - it can't be altered at will.

I'm saying A LOT of shit which I've always kept under wraps, but I feel that it's time to admit that I'm a FUCKING LOSER.

...
Shame of you.

But wait a minute. Let's have a recap:
「As I speak, I am probably thinking that I'm pretty much the 'Dan' of the scene right now, and I'm pretty fucking ashamed to show my face at any offline event again.


I'm saying A LOT of shit which I've always kept under wraps, but I feel that it's time to admit that I'm a FUCKING LOSER.:」

Photobucket
Even Dan is ashamed to be associated with you. Leave him out.


Photobucket
Don't mind the, intermission but this is Dan's friend Joe Higashi giving you some real follow-up advice.

I'm actually socially handicapped, which will explain why I appear awkward in front of people, or do silly things that don't make sense to most of you. As I speak right now, I'm receiving mental health treatment from the NHS, and it probably won't be long before I get referred to a mental health hospital, as this has been a problem with me since school.

This is the reason why people who play video games are generally thought negatively of by those ass-brained people, no matter how misguided and misinformed they may also be. And you'd think that those "happy" nerd types (similar to a great many of those anime lovers and Final Fantasy fans) who also invade the space of video games are bad enough.

My dribble is pretty much over, since I think I've probably covered all the relevant points. If you're still reading up to now, I'm pretty impressed you kept up with this (lol).

No problem. I read because I care.

By all means, you're welcome to cuss me, flame me, revenge post me or do whatever you fucking want to do. I'm not fishing for compliments, sympathy or any of the homo shit. The reason I'm posting this, because I have a huge urgency to repent on my dishonorable actions.

Dishonorable and not dishonourable? And the lol? So much for the British education system. And then you requested that all comments be collapsed when some of them merely told you off mildly which was but for your own good. And repent? Your ancestors would be damn proud. You can no longer be a gentleman at home, even though you are still welcome to try and redeem yourself with simpler and more meaningful activities at the Royal Philatelic Club.

* serving suggestion

Unless someone can convince me otherwise, (and I've probably said this about 20 times in my gaming career), I'm going to take a long break from the scene and maybe potentially quit - possibly forcing myself to sell all my equipment (joysticks, consoles, games etc.)

A typical nerd solution to a typical nerd problem. Just do it. Spread your wings and fly. Why should anyone care to try convincing you? Your phrase is an indirect asking for someone stronger than you to come to you and help you change your mind on a weak solution created emotionally out of your own desperation. If I see such a person coming near you I would have to kill him. Because it's for your sake and your well-being. You have to learn how to stand on your own two feet.

Once again, apologies out to the relevant heads involved, and the people whom I probably wasted people's time listening to my crap. Particularly, Rudi, Jinty, Prodigal Son, Dragon twins, French players, Waqs, IMX, NGUboy, Chunkis, True Might, Circle Masher, random heads and quite a few others that I've probably missed.

-Vince

He seems quite sincere regardless and just maybe ahem, The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen would forgive ahem, The English Patient. We hope for the best possible outcome in his make-glorious benefit quest for social cohesion, thank you for viewing.

░▒▓█ The Way of the Beast

The national pasttime of brand loyalty against all else has been objectively exposed by no other than the enigmatic Best Buys employee Brian Maupin in Western imperialist Amerikkka, who made respectable attempts at two animated videos regarding the items of the day the iPhone 4 and the HTC Evo - without a care for tomorrow's paycheck. He sums his cultural works best when he mentions in the following line:

“At its core, it’s kind of a commentary on how people are loyal to their brands even if they get burned,” said Maupin.

In the neverending fight for self-validation the key attributes of civilisation that are logic, reason and even intelligence that have often lost the game of life afterwards continue to take the back seat when your typical urban legends I mean your ordinary consumers that are power-charged by linear progression and strong emotions pursue the extraordinarily meaningful depth of brand loyalty instead.


Out of love and respect I have painstakingly taken off 20 minutes of my schedule to conceive a poster in order to properly honour these special and distinguished life forms on our planet in the ages to come:

Photobucket

Brand betrayal on their part even in the slightest possible sense is unthinkable and ignoble, and care must also be taken to note that basic common sense is but another of their greatest enemies in life. These honourable warriors constantly fight to kill it, or die trying. They mean business.



░▒▓█ Stephen Hawking – God Didn’t Create the Universe

“Because there is a law such as gravity, the universe can and will create itself from nothing. Spontaneous creation is the reason there is something rather than nothing, why the universe exists, why we exist,” Hawking writes.

“It is not necessary to invoke God to light the blue touch paper and set the universe going.”

░▒▓█ The Way that it should be

I read with great interest an exasperated but pretty accurate comment from an American fan of SNK-Playmore (previously without Playmore) regarding the multiple betrayals towards him by those very ambitious Jap architects:

"SNK-Playmore is very much a company that operates the way they see fit and lives in the 20th century.

Thus SNK-Playmore ignores the norms and standards of the modern day. SNK Playmore is making games that would have sufficed in 1993 or even 1994."

It may be logic-defying but that's what they are: stubborn old men living in ancient caves with a primitive style of life. To an extent by which even in-their-face critics and opponents with little love for their creations let alone those equally logic-defying supporters feel smacked in the face by them and their purely absolutist ways. To a degree I also support using corporate force to monopolise and preserve existing technologies against the neverending and rapid waves of ever-changing trends, that is common yet largely uncontrolled in the West. Even if that may also sometimes mean the indirect control of the tastes of the dumb masses.

And if the norms and standards of the modern day are bad and corruptive, then why pay any heed to them? Let alone the sheep that follow them so willingly? Money isn't always everything - personal values matter much more. And SNK Playmore even as a regrouped entity still has problems overcoming its xenophobia. The Jap market is still the most important to them, and they could care less about Asia and the West - they never did.

For starters all Asian and almost all Western characters still speak very good Japanese instead of their own languages that include English, and people with no backbone from those regions still cater to them even if they are but a minority, for reasons that I do not understand, including why Mark of the Wolves is popular in the States among the minority supporters that remains a mystery. For those ignorant idiots they pull this shit off because they know their own people because of their self-delusion are actually unable to accept much less respect the various foreign languages and cultures of other peoples - their interest in these respects is generally of the very superficial kind and any deeper would make them feel alarmed and alienated as a result and they would not want to have much to do with the game. That followed by the poor netcode for their games in those and all other areas outside Japland.

People still don't get the hint of their unimportance in the eyes of these marvellous Jap architects I think, who also deliberately promote social gender confusion by their willful introductions of gaylike and gaylike androgynous characters like Benimaru Nikaido, Amakusa Shiro Tokisada and the latest hairband wearing freckle-boy Ash Crimson (do French people have such purely Anglo names other than speaking only very good Japanese I wonder) and the one-off Shion - though only in terms of gameplay they are all my favourite battle characters as they are fun to use save Ash. So for the general apathy in First World countries and the rampant reproduction propensities in Third World countries in response to their actions and that they blamed for their bankruptcy my friends and I think they pretty much deserve it. 

And while we do play SOME of them and I even buy and collect quite a few of them as well in new condition but I don't overall like their games too much compared to those made by other Jap companies (Contra beats Metal Slug just like Final Fight beats Burning Fight) but this, on their part, is really cool. You gotta let people be what they are sometimes.

Despite some of their mistakes I would even HOPE that these sunny recalcitrant monkeys would be around for a longer time because of this.

Photobucket
Their last game that marked the False Millennium year. Who does "You" actually represent? Anyway this was before they broadly blame-shifted their corporate failures and bankruptcy to everyone living outside Japland.


Photobucket
An ongoing project regardless in the True Millennium year. I admire these brave Jap architects. Erm, I'm not cynical and sarcastic. In any case I LIKE this in-game logo screen MOST. And this rock-solid game is BETTER ALSO, let alone one of the BEST. I proudly own the Sega Dreamcast and Sony PlayStation 2 versions while my good friend has the Neo Geo arcade (MVS) version.

Up in the mornin',
Out on the job,
I work like the devil for my pay.
I know that lucky old sun, has nothin' to do,
But roll around heaven all day.

I fuss with my woman, and toil with my kids,
Sweat 'til I'm wrinkled and gray.
I know that lucky old sun, has nothin' to do,
But roll around heaven all day.

Show me that river, why don't you take me across,
Wash all my troubles away,
I know that lucky old sun, he's got nothing to do,
But just roll around heaven all day.


I always win in the end you damned bitches!!!

░▒▓█ At long last

To be honest with you, I have always wanted to capture a no-lag video of myself winning in Street Fighter Alpha 3 using Dan, and especially V-ism Dan. Even if I don't do much combos (like he has lots to begin with) and I use an extremely old, BLOCKY and cranky keyboard.

Photobucket
Auspicious beginning of a first Dan Derby with a player from South Korea.


Because I wanted his original colour (which also means I HAVE to take Z-ism whether I like it or not) and HE took it, so I have no choice but to teach him a very good lesson.

Photobucket
Love his airborne attack





Photobucket
that lands a 3-hit on heavy kick execution.





Photobucket
See how powerful his move is?





Photobucket
Tough luck boy.

Photobucket
Yeeah hah!!!





Photobucket
So how did it taste? Was it wonderful !! ?


I have to say, I owe it all to him for this success. Had he also not picked the original version I wouldn't have been inspired to choose his Custom Combo version, and pull out stuff like this.

Photobucket
There, I win.





Photobucket
And the winner statistics. But the recording is a bit crap, so.




Photobucket
An unexpected question.


After one more game where I won as well, and the recording quality seemed to be going nowhere near flawless I said "good games and thanks" in his language before I left. It was a nice fight with him, but with imperfect recordings it is a pointless waste of time.

Actually, my first Dan win online was in Street Fighter Alpha 2, against a Japanese player. Because the Alpha series is more ghetto than even Third Strike online, few people participate, and out of the few, they are the extremely hardcore players from Japan who give no chances. And because the Alpha series beyond the first had become more complex what with the advent of custom combos and all, plus the fact that I use the keyboard while they use sticks and pads AND the fact that the keyboard controls are anathema to Custom Combo activation in Alpha 2 (the stupid joint press of three different buttons didn't help things any better) I am EXTREMELY disadvantaged when I fight them. But, I still do it, because I want to try, challenge myself, and not give up. They can do whatever they like in this charity that I show them, and I'd still try to beat them anyway.

Photobucket
You see a first Dan win coming in Street Fighter Alpha 2 against the Japanese boy heh heh heh.

Two rounds won on Custom Combo Finishes. I am content.





Photobucket
Good enough.


I have seen people play from around the world and I have always wondered why no one including those who believe they are pros would choose Dan at all, and in the few that do, there is no one I have ever seen who takes the Custom Combo version. Why is that? And it's just a game isn't it? You mean you think you are good, but you acknowledge that you are not good enough to use much less understand the lowest-tier character and its fighting style? Pathetic!

A Japanese I fought in the Street Fighter Alpha 2 domain tried using Dan as a comeback, but because he tried to do combos like he would with his Ryu he kept failing and I could tell that he lost interest. Hmm, combos do not a fighter maketh. People who rely a lot on it to win I think, are failures and one of those dime-a-dozen safe-but-boring conformist players that have no ability to explore new and different things, even if that would sometimes come with limitations and greater challenges and in ways that are unexpected. People, even among few that play this silly game compared to the much-more-popular Super Street Fighter II Turbo and Street Fighter III: Third Strike.

The Asian level in the Zero/Alpha series like those two has always been the highest, and I noticed that in Zero 3 the game is much more complex than even Third Strike, that I manage the least proficiently outside of the arcade and even joypad controls (let alone keyboard I invariably take to online). For the most part I need real controls to play Alpha 3 like I do outside against other Asian players, some of these hardcore types that I have also already defeated.

But when playing it online I try to enjoy myself and do my best, and I have no regrets about anything. I tell my naughty cousin the same too. Those who go too deeply but still gained nothing in the real material world like the stupid nerds that we all know are more and more concerned about winning, talking shop (I hate hearing about this and the mentioning of Jap tournament players the most), their "reputation" (like it really matters), the fear of trying out different things just so that they would look bad and lose in front of everyone etc... they really have a life.

I strive to be better, but I am not interested to be like any of them.

PS I actually went to beat Akuma in the first Zero game in one credit on Expert Mode (even though I just made him fight me on my sunset stage in Thailand) JUST to get his picture in full blue glory. Can't note any lack of dedication here on my part.

Beating Sagat on Expert Mode on my FIRST TRY, just to get some differently-animated pictures of him in his custom green gi (but there were none, damn!). Whoo hoo!!!

There, he is the strongest, depending on who uses him hahaha.

An excerpt shot from a fight against Akuma on Expert Mode as well in Zero 3, just for the novelty of it.

I get this crap message even though my score was higher than Charlie's. Well at least the Master decoration remains unchanged ~
