If you hear bandwidths of 10 Megabits in, 5 megabits out, and think that that's the service you get in a third world country, this is not for you. This is for people who lust after 10 Megabit connections and can afford one or more consoles. This website shows you how to get creative with online games, and find ones they don't automatically get kicked off of.

Street Fighter IV: Great retro 2D mechanics with a 3D look.

This was the game I bought a right handed 360 joystick for. I was trying to explain instructions on how to make it ambidextrous and compatible with multiple systems. However, the first person I got got it wrong. I could swap in and and out different systems, but I would have to plug in indivdidual cords into quick connects, but quick connects are not sturdy enough for frequent unplugs and replugs. And I'd have a spaghetti mess where if the labels fell off, I would have NO idea what plugs into what, and if the Ground and Signal are a part of it, and I mixed them up, I don't know if I could ruin the joystick or Xbox 360.so after a while, I tired to get it fixed again, this time to fix the spaghetti mess, and this person disassembled it and didn't reaffix the labels; he left it more disorganized than before, so I missed out on my right handed action and I settled for a left =handed joystick I found for cheap on Ebay.

Does right handed make a difference? If you don't think so read my post on Capcom-Unity or I had one on Shoryuken.com but it got erased, because my good friend said I lied that not only me but all our friends beat him in the Genesis days when he was on a standard Sega 6-button pad, and I and everyone else was on an unergonomic, ambidextrous joystick that got broken in 2 weeks. But during those 2 weeks, I was able to beat everyone, and everyone else was able to beat my good friend, Jamal "Zophar321" Nickens in SF2NC.

I'm not saying this to disrespect him. The fact that would tell the story of how Bryan beat Jamal in every possible head-to-head matchup of characters in Mortal Kombat Trilogy said enbarassed. But for some reason he doesn't want to say that about me. I'm even handing him the lesson and the excuse of why it won't happen again. He was using a 6 button pad, everyone else playing against each other alos used a 6-buton pad, but I used my ambidextrous joystick. It wasn't even contoured right and I was able to not only beat everyone in my group using a variety of characters, but Jamal said there was no way a Joystick could help someone that much. I said I made my point beating everyone with my joystick, but Jamal aid no one else can beat him with a right handed joystick. Since I was tired of winning and wanted to shut Jamal up, I let all my other friends, 2 of them are Gavin Drapp and James Prhne and challenge Jamal at Street Fighter New Challengers, James Prhne sucks at Street Fighter IV when we played it on a Jack of All Games demo show, and EVERYOINE THERE, even James, beat him with a right handed joystick. As a control we played with a left handed Joystick where Jamal won a majority of matches against the others, but every match Jamal played against right handed opponents, both me and everyone else, he lost.

I'm not saying a right handed joystick would help everyone, your mileage may vary, and it would help in New Challengers more than in something like Marvel Vs Capcom 3, where key button sequences are more important, and combos make a bigger part of the game, whereas in New challengers, if you can execute a special at will, real fast, and with so little effort that you can concentrate more on defense and reacting to opponents, your game gets upped, especially if your opponent mis-fires specials even 25% of the time, mainly because specials are overpowered compared to straight moves at a higher ratio than in more modern games where other aspects dilute the specials' dominance, and combos weren't engineered, they were natural and part of the game engine. Most of the changes since reflect the balancing of the over-dominant special.

I even gave him an excuse: He learned the right tool for the job can overcome many handicaps. I'm not saying I'll beat Jamal than dominantly, especially if he buys a Sega Genesis 6-button Joystick. He did beat me most of the time in more modern fighters, where, as I said before special moves are less powerful compared to other tactics, the biggest one being memorized combos. I just wish that Jamal will admit that, at that time, before he bought a home joystick for the Xbox 360 when he was challenging people online in Street Fighter IV, that the right handed joystick was the right tool for the job, and I had the advantage that day It was just a perfect storm. I bet you Jamal hasd this day in mind when he bought a Joystick for the Xbox 360. He didn't want another series of embarrassing performances online.

As for Street Fighter V, it was a blast from the past, playing all the old favorites, 4 new characters, and it just being a 3D-presentation of a basically 2D game in mechanics. It was fun. It added new things like Focus Attack, where you charge your middle attacks to absorb one attack and attack and get a free hit on the opponent, which I didn't utilize much because the really big combos in the tutorial mode didn't adequately show how to pull off complex combos well, so I was basically playing it lie Street Fighter 2, but with specials, enhanced specials, like on my guy E Honda, his *ap-Slap was mobile, able to move forward or backward while delivering it, but it was a consumable, along with supers for saving 4 enhanced specials at once, and hypers which you got by giving and taking damage, and had either 1 or 2, depending on how you time them.
