  2. Super Smash Bros Melee

    Pretty much confirmed for MLG and with a massive showing at APEX'14, melee seems to be taking off again. For guys like me who only got into it after the smash documentary, it appears smash is entering it's second golden age which is rare for any game once popularity falls. For anyone interested, I'll be maintaining this thread and updating it with current live streams. Whether you play or not, it's a fantastic spectator e-sport anyway. I watched it way before I actually decided to pick it up lol.

  3. The Man Who Sold The World

    Big update, really loving this build - Demise meant I couldn't play Maxx C or Dinomischus as well. Dropped it for a spellbook engine. Spellbook engine is great for g1 where speed is important. Spellbook engine is easily sidable for 6 good cards needed for each matchup. Evenly Matched is literally broken and shouldn't be in the game. Mistake in the main hits everything. If it weren't an inherent minus I would love 3 but it's also a dead draw sometimes. Also conflicts with dupe. GR&WC destroys the mirror and also gets rid of that fucking omega shitlord thing. God I hate that. System down resolving on any deck running heavy machine lines is just a win condition alone. Also it's a cool one-off.
  4. The Man Who Sold The World

    i am aware you can't set links. but if you flip the ss'd monsters they're linked to, you essentially lock them out of ss. i knew about imperial order, i thought you meant iron wall lool
  5. The Man Who Sold The World

    yes yes spell book adds another 6 cards to an already cramped deck. i think there's about 31 staples as is and i'd rather just play demise. forgive me if i'm wrong, but they can't link with face downs. locking them out of their linked zones is just too good imo. macro is awful and goes against everything the deck wants. d fissure, maybe but still seems very counter intuitive. barrier statue is good, although hard to protect. whats this errata?

This looks really fun on paper and the few games I’ve played online with it. Extra deck is generic. Made purely to destroy kids at my lunch time TCG club but if there’s any obvious fixes, I’m happy to listen!
  8. Lightsworn

    If you watch the video above it actually looks pretty neat. Fun combos with a nod to the past.

    I will try and out this and get out of my 'old school' frame of mind
  10. Lightsworn

    I see a lot play Goblindbergh and the Predoplant engine... is that really the way forward? Seems almost shoe horned in... I agree it's basically like 6 years ago, but will adding the above make it better?
  11. Lightsworn

    Are they good though? I can see the combos but might take away from consistency. Punishment Dragon looks bad. Am I bad?
  12. On the road to fitness

    how has it been for 10 weeks? do you feel healthier? hungrier? smaller? i normally come into these threads and see a weird ass diet, 7 day training weeks and wanting to know how and when they will see results. if you've stuck to that for 10 weeks, and stayed within your mfp macros... i can't really see this failing. can i ask about almond milk and turkey shit? is that cos you like the taste or because it's a diet fad? changing up the type of milk or eating solely turkey does nothing if you're eating pizza and two bowls of cereal each day. it's like bringing a broom to an earthquake, yeah it helps... but there are bigger issues.

  16. if you click on this topic you must post

    oh I pretty much exclusively play melee on dolphin and that was fine with the g3258 at stock so the g4560 will be good. I only emulate ps1 and gamecube atm.
  17. if you click on this topic you must post

    for stuff like csgo and emulators, I wont see a massive drop in performance using the g4560 over the i7 right? I don't do any content creation or rendering stuff that is cpu heavy

    ash I currently have an i7 4790k on a shitty lga1150 mobo. I bought it in the ryzen hype price crash and now I want to resell it and go kaby lake. i'm thinking just get the g4560 as the g3258 was more than enough before hand, I just got the i7 in a good deal. I've got a good offer on the i7 and it will allow me to buy lga1151 mobo with g4560 and a stick of ddr4 RAM. I can then sell my old mobo and ddr3 stick for a small bit of cash on the side. currently rocking a 750ti but will upgrade in the future.
