Avoiding the Puddle Episode #11 featuring ATL_Hoa!

For anyone that has watched the stream of the finale for MLG Dallas, then you should know that ATL_Hoa came out of no where and dominated with Jack-6. In this episode, we were able to get ATL_Hoa aka Anakin to come on and talk about his MLG Dallas experience. Before we talk with the unknown American hero, Aris and MYK sit down and shoot the sh*t. They recap the MLG Dallas event in depth, the new TAG2 footage, and more!

3 out 5 is crazy. And Nin could be just salty. don't people say he's the arrogant one sometimes? He's still FUCKING GOOD though

No, he's not salty. I was a bit surprised when I heard that Hoa/Anakin didn't practice that much in preparation for Dallas. I heard Nin, Rain and Knee practices for like 40 hours the week leading up to a tournament so if they were to hear they got beat by someone who hardly practices; it's understandable for any of them to be frustrated by that outcome.

Knee has a highly ranked Jack-6 now so he might fare better if he ever meets up with Anakin/Hoa again.

I heard that Holeman slacked off a bit leading up to that tournament which was why he got scolded by Nin for not practicing enough for MLG Dallas.

Captain America. That's hilarious.

I agree with the sentiment made about "flash". I remember the first time I saw the slow motion juggle animation on Steve with the large gloves I thought, cool!

Maybe that's how they could integrate it(Flash), with items. They've made a small attempt at it already.

Umhhh, Aris, I am sorry, I am not a top player in Soul Calibur or Tekken (although I do play both and I've been to several Soul Calibur tourneys) but I was just listening to this and did you say that Soul Calibur is much simpler game than Tekken as far as move inputs? That is simply not true. There is nothing in Tekken 6 as difficult to input as Kilik's GB Asura Dance or FOTD or Ivy's command throws. In Tekken I play Law, Bob, and Alisa, (granted at an average level) and there isn't a single move in any of their arsenals that I can't do, while I still can't do Kilik's GB Asura in Soul Calibur 4.

The closest thing there is to just frame moves I've seen in Tekken 6 so far is Heihachi's Electric God Fist. I don't even play Heihachi and I was able to pull it off on the 2nd or 3rd try.

If you referring to depth of gameplay, yeah, maybe you can make an argument that Tekken is deeper than Soul Calibur, but as far as difficulty of inputs Soul Calibur (IV) has Tekken (6) beat by a wide margin.

No offence but Law, Bob and Alisa ain't exactly the best examples although you can get very technical with Law and use his transistions into his stance (I dont play Law but I think it's called Dragon Sign Stance) which might take some time to get used to, the other characters are very easy to use input wise especially Bob. I've played Soul Calibur but never really used Kilik (Yoshimitsu all the way) so I cant say much but Heihachi's EWGF isn't really too tough to pull off the real deal starts when you implement it into your juggles for maximum damage and so on. Try out Marduks Vale tudo stance cancelling into his forward forward 1+2 throw that's one thing I consider TOUGH and Bob and Alisa is nowhere near average i'd give the price to the easiest character in the game to Bob hands down. But to sum it all up im not entirely sure about the diffuculites about Soul Calibur moves as it has been a very long time since I last played it but just wanted to give a heads up so you don't judge Tekken's difficulty after playing 3 of the easiest characters to use (As I said Law can be technical but without bothering with it I find him very easy to use input wise) Marduk on pad = nightmare in my oppinion pz out
