You get a lot of them just by playing. Go online and win 2 ranked games in a row. Again using Asty, use his forward-B knee move to get a LOT of wall hits. Make sure you finish story mode with Yoda and then arcade mode with The Apprentice.

I've had my ass handed to me twice online.
Both times by cheap long reaching moves QQ

Yeah, once I got the ranked match achievement, I went straight over to player matches. They're generally more fun as there's no real reason to HAVE to win. Good practice too.

I absolutely love Hilde. Most people don't know where to block against her. And I absolutely HATE Cassandra. I'm shit against her.

Nice man will do!

Although in saying that, I was playing Halo3 last night with BoonyPC and it was laggy as hell!

Turns out my housemate was leeching though.. so I'm going to give it another shot.

(Just some background, I was a serious Soul Calibur II player, I used Raphael, I only ever found out about 2 tournaments and I came first in both of them.)

SCIV hasn't impressed me so far:

Half the moves I used with Raphael have vanished. When I first played I thought my controller was broken because a whole bunch of things just didn't come out. Then I looked at the movelist, dear me. No autoevade, only one prep now? missing retreat and advance step (214, 236 or qcb, qcf) and most of the moves out of them, moves are seemingly randomly reassigned to different commands and the amount of moves linking into prep has decreased.

Where is Soul Charge? Soul Charge added a lot of flashiness and interest to Soul Calibur and one of the things I loved about Raph in SCII was his mindgames after a 3B, 6BB~SCC (SCC = Soul Charge cancel).

A whole bunch of verticals track, WTF Namco?

Frame advantage/disadvantage feels like Tekken 4 to me, combined with no Soul Charge makes the flow slow and generic.

Just picked this up.

+1 on the WTF is going on with the pruned movelists. Mitsurugi doesn't have his stances anymore :(

Yeah, he's still got a few.
But I can't remember back to SC2 when I had it so I'm not sure if all the ones he has atm are all he ever had (does that even make sense?).
Stances are hard to find though.

If you mean the stance where he sheathes the sword, then yes =P

try this to start with mitsu... DF + y for launcher, back + x and hold x putting into a stance, immediately forward + y holding y putting him into another stance, then x.
if you can get this going it will show you how to use the stanced linking together... you can pull off some awesome combos like this with mitsu... hes my fav.

if you can make all hits connect then you are onto the right timing.

I went from Soul Calibur IV straight to Virtua Fighter 5 last night.....and I would still take VF5 10 times out of 10 over SCIV despite the fact that I am quite liking it so far. VF has the responsiveness overall and is far far far far far less rewarding to mashers. I also prefer the customisation in VF5 as well with items tailored to each character. Though the create-a-soul in SC4 is unmatched, simply put.

Fortunately going back and forth between the two games is still surprisingly easy (at least on an arcade stick), no doubt because both employ a block button which I much much prefer to Tekken's method. Going from Tekken to VF or SC is quite a jarring experience. There's also the bit where Tekken is vastly inferior, especially to VF, but I'll leave that one alone for now.

I strongly suspect though that Street Fighter 4 will run away with the fighter of the year awards this year. SC4 is excellent, but SF4 looks to be...special.

This game is a scrub-fest online. Firstly shame on Namco for allowing it to be the case with the horrible netcode that allows Kilik spammers to run riot. If they're not using Kilik they're using other speed characters like Talim or Taki and just playing bulldog.

Because of the shitty netcode, GIs go out the window as well as basic sidestepping and throw timing.

I guess though it comes with the territory of being a popular fighting game, with the scrub population being quite high, but what is annoying is how the lag doesn't allow you to sort these fools out like you could at the arcade. guh

Play both games for a while and it becomes obvious. VF is leagues ahead of Tekken. I'm at the point where I believe anyone who thinks Tekken is the superior fighting game simply doesn't know any better and hasn't put enough time in to VF. It's SF2 vs MK all over again.

And kunzie, I'm just that....um. I cheesed it with Astaroth and ripped off a number of perfect rounds.
