Another long passed update . . .

Has really been a while since the last update. Think I need to update stuff more often instead of just doing it as and when haha.

Updates on the community, well nothing much really changed, everyone's busy and still the same old few players. Only with addition of Edward, and recently saw some newer players playing MB in Bugis on Friday evenings. Think they just play it for casual fun so well . . .

I just got my new job so adjusting and picking up new stuff. Most of the updates and stuff you can head over to round1.sg where we have our local MB community forums there.

Here is one of the nicer MBAA:CC Qualifier clips which I could find.

8/29 滋賀ガオラMBAACC闘劇予選その2

The Hisui in both the clips is really good, made the most impression on me, with his mixups and combos. I think he could perform better by blocking more instead of taking so much risk but overall he is good. Lots of stuff which I could pick up from the player.

And mikado arcade just had their daily 2v2 MBAA:CC tourney. As compared this time round the 2v2 ain't that interesting but still worth a watch.

So remember to head over to round1.sg to find us for any matters =)

Long forgotten updates . . .

Well, I have not been updating the blog for a LONG LONG time.

We managed to get 2 gatherings together and in both gathering we failed to even take pictures of our players and random stuff as usual. We Singaporean MB players really fail in this aspect lol

The videos of our 2 mini tourney is up at various places which I myself have no clues where too haha. Mistakes aside, both gatherings was a very good experience and the 2nd one a few of us stayed over night at Sugar's / Wilfred's place and continue playing till the next morning.

Well during this time, Joe one of our Satsuki player have went back to Malaysia, and Sevalle our resident HM V-Akiha player have already flown over to Perth for studies and wouldn't be back in a while.

Some of our younger players are heading into the army for their enlistment call ups soon too, Dneo, Chichiboy, Yukarin, their gang of JC students who just graduated.

I am thinking of organising another gathering up for them before they go into army and seeing them before their heads get shaven flat haha.

Even on hamachi netplay, MBAC seems to have grown colder, much fewer players now. I guess everyone is busy with their own commitments or having new games to play. The game is starting to get popular in the US and I am very glad to see it getting revived over there.

On MBAA FT updates, as i posted on round1.sg on our MBAA forum, most probably we would not get to see the game in TKA arcade as the hardware is not going to be Naomi but Ringwide, which is an XP-embedded system that would make a PC port a closer reality than before.

RingWide is made of inexpensive components. Even a new computer built with cheap parts can completely dominate it spec-wise, since it relies on SDRAM along with a recommended graphics card series about three years old and processor that was weak even when it came out.

Info is taken from Meltybread site.

And so regarding our next gathering, lemme me ask around to see if anyone is willing to loan his place for us to play and gather again for just a 1 day over the weekend.

Arcade Scene Cooling Down . . .

Well part of the purpose for organising the MB tourney is also to gather people of the MB community again and see who are the new guys / gals around. I doubt there is any gals and it is always rare to even see one at all. I understand it is always the same few around but it was better compared to back 1.5 years ago where I was like the only one with David and Reiroy camping the old MBAC machine back at Bugis TKA Virtualand.

As the title goes, the scene is dying down quite a bit, even for more popular ones like Blazblue, partly due to the fact of online play / console. MB, AH2 and Daemon Bride has problems attracting new players due to maybe different mechanics, faster gameplay and lousier graphics haha. Well it is the last quarter of the year and I think most people are busy with their own commitments and stuff (I am also having more commitments now)

Friday nights seems to be the day with the most number of people popping down at the arcade, while Saturday these days are dwindling down alot. People come and go and we make new friends every now and then. I should also organise some form of weekend console gaming every now and then for the guys around my area, provided we have enough people interested haha.

And well HI PEOPLE, I know this blog is not very active for a while due to a lazy community leader of MB, and I am gaming hopping around too much for the past few months with other fighting games like TH 12.3, Vanguard Princess, Blazblue, Arcana Hearts 2.

And while updating, to our new players who are playing MB, please head over to round1.sg and join us there in the forums.

MBAA PS2 Console version has been out for a week already as I post the information here. I believe most people would have gotten their hands on it and busy trying out various stuff. So I decided to get our second MBAA tourney going since our Sugarmilktea is heading overseas (correct information?) and there would be no AH2 tourney for a while and it has been like 3 months since our 1st MBAA tourney.

So I need help in gathering names for the next tourney to see how good the response will be.
The date tentatively would be the 1st Saturday of Sept, 5th or the 2nd Saturday of Sept, 12th. I prefer 5th of Sept myself personally. If we have a good amount of names, then it would definitely be a go. So let's get cracking and hit our contacts, phone books etc and get people to sign up !

And some late updating of screenies of the MBAA PS2 game can be seen just below. I also put the images up on sgcafe action gaming forums or round1 forums.

Okie, sorry for being lazy guys, quite alot been going on and i got the pics of our winners here =p

Our winners with the gorgeous announcer from Arcadia. =)

Our winners with one of the managers from Arcadia.

Our champion Farhan the pro white len user !!! \(^^)/

The 1st runner up Serge with his punishable shielding Nanaya Shiki (^^)╧

And our 2nd runner up Dneo with his Hisui Koha Maids Team <(^^)>

You realise Serge is damn pissed off for getting 2nd, he ain't smiling in all the photos which he is in lol

I will go back and upload the bracket pics before I keep forgetting about it. If there is a chance for another tourney, I will try to make it round robin, double elimination or something so that everyone has more chance to play with the other players.

And we really should have taken a huge group photo for the event. Scolding myself for not remembering it (T_T)
