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.
