I think it would be cool to get more Smash Bros discussion going here in the Fediverse! My contribution will be tournament reports, usually from my local weekly in Cambridge. I can't promise to remember every week, but hopefully this will be a good way to start some conversations and help me reflect on my performance.
Vencabot is hosting another series of Community Ladder FT2 sets! Feel free to !join at any time; just read #bruiseday-updates on Discord!
Street Fighter III: 3rd Strike (Fightcade)
No to cześć Pol.Social, jestem Skryba, streamuję bijatyki (głównie Tekken i Street Fighter), organizuję turnieje, gram turniejowo, a do tego od wielu lat pracuję jako tester gier wideo. Wcześniej byłem dziennikarzem, m.in. w Komputer Świecie. Może do pisania zresztą wrócę :D
Tak czy siak, przyszedłem tu z racji na dymy powiązane z ostatnimi niesamowitymi wydarzeniami na 101010.pl, no i jestem ciekawy co u Was dobrego słychać.
Ponadto bawię się w monochromatyczną fotografię mobilną, znajdziecie mnie tu: https://pixelfed.social/i/web/profile/504729240491906063
Najnowszy odcinek podcastu! :)
You ever think about how wild the backstory for #KingOfFighters must be?
👩⚕️ "Mr. and Mrs. Howard! It's a boy!"
👩 "He... He's perfect!"
👨 "You've made me the happiest man on earth."
👩⚕️ "What will you name him?"
👩 "We were thinking about how we met in a park."
👨 "So to always remind us, his name will be..."
👩⚕️ "I... Uh... He's your baby, I guess."
👩 "Welcome to the family, Geese Howard!"
👨 "Surely that name won't cause you to become a villain of some sort."
Vencabot is hosting more Bruise-day Tuesday FT5 exhibition sets! It's an honor to watch you guys do your thing; let's see what's good!
Street Fighter III: 3rd Strike (Fightcade)
Good news: Break Man is finished.
Here is one of his hypers: Nullsphere Defense hyper - Nullify all projectiles, but only priojectiles.
So maybe we will be able to pull an update for Robot Master Mayhem this year :)
Download the latest release of the project here
it turns out that signing up to do FG commentary at the last minute makes you forget other things, sorry the schedule is up a bit later than normal but it's not like i was gonna change much lmao #guiltygear #guiltygearstrive #ggst #ggsts3 #ggstjohnny #guiltygearstrivejohnny #johnnyggst #johnnyguiltygearstrive #fightinggamecommunity #fightinggames #fgc #pokemon #pokemonxdgaleofdarkness #pokemonnuzlocke #youtube #streaming #lgbtqstreamer #lgbtqiastreamer #lgbtqiaplusstreamer
Myślę, że w końcu scommituje się i zacznę tworzyć faktycznie dobry jakościowo content o bijatykach w Polsce. Brakuje tego, nikt tego nie robi, a ja mam na tyle duży warsztat, znajomość narzędzi i zasięgi, że mogłoby z tego wyjść coś fajnego. Co o tym sądzicie? #fgc #giereczkowo
Jak dotąd robię podcasty i streamuje, obydwie te platformy całkiem dobrze u mnie działają. Brakuje mi jednak jeszcze konsekwencji i materiałów na YT.
I’m probably the only foreigner participating in a roaster filled with Japanese players. I expect to be booted out early on, but I will fight to the best of my abilities nonetheless! #FGC
Working on RMM Break Man hyper moves.
I am using Chat GPT to make the hyper names and its amazing. this one was named "Hypercharged Hand Blitz" :)
Try the latest version of Mega Man Robot Master Mayhem here:
Valmaster (#ChunLi) double perfects Angrybird (Ken, #EVO2023 winner), and all Big Bird has to say is “Meh double P in this game is not impressive anymore, I got double Pd a lot”. Come on! Give the man the respect he deserves. https://youtu.be/ShRbsUuyVG0?si=bfpq9t9zCt1-7mgv&t=957 #SF6 #FGC
Quick video showcasing some Break Man moves , from the project Mega Man Robot Master Mayhem, which should be updated next year.

Was having some fun mucking about with Rivals of Aether workshop characters and thought "Lets hop online and try these out in a real match". Remember kids, nothing good can come of playing a fast competitive game when you're tired. It's been a good long while since I shouted at my screen! But really, it would have been polite to stop comboing me once during the match...
This gives me actual actionable points to work on, so I know where to put my focus on, what to correct, what to practice etc. Doing this gives me a clear path to follow towards success.
No i skończył się pierwszy turniej eliminacyjny Tekken European Cup. Wygrał Frizen, drugie miejsce zajął Jaskarnet, trzecie - Bati. Dwóch z tych trzech graczy są powszechnie znanymi i szanowanymi graczami z wieloletnim doświadczeniem turniejowymi, Jaskarnet był dużym zaskoczeniem. Następny kierunek? Pga. @esport #fgc
The in-between-legs crawling animation is super well done, but the choke itself is even more awesome: Notice how Chun-Li's left arm gets caught in the choke? That's textbook triangle choke stuff. You use your opponent's arm to tighten the triangle, making them choke on their own arm and your leg.
On an even more positive note, AKI's trailer also randomly dropped today. Thank god she's nothing like Fang. I really dig the snake/scorpion look she has, her movements feel uncanny; props to the animators, I imagine she had a lot less mocap to work with.
Thanks to everyone who hung out during my 1989 Nintendo Famicom Sweet Home stream!
What a cool game! Also, we had an epic Show n' Tell session and ended with 5 sets of Ranked Street Fighter 6!
Hope to see you all next week for the next Extra Life donor request stream 💙
Vencabot is hosting the final night of INSERT COIN BigNasty Fundraiser Tournaments! Our goal, tonight, is only $160; let's pay to win in 3S!
Street Fighter III: 3rd Strike (Fightcade)
#Reddit's recent video framing change really sucks for the #FGC. It auto-crops videos to match a certain (taller) aspect ratio. Unfortunately in fighting games, a lot of time is spent in the corner, at the sides of the screen leading to videos like this. Pretty much all the FGC content I follow is significantly worse because of this change.
I get why auto-cropping is a big thing for product and UX individuals, but ultimately the author's *intent* should trump everything. This is just one example where that intent is not being respected and how it directly impacts sub-communities with niche use cases.
Tomorrow will be my first Smash Bros tournament in half a year! I took a break to focus on the new home, the rest of life, and enjoy more of a focus on smash with friends while still trying to improve.
I still really REALLY want to be someone who can make it through the ranks. I think I've gotten quite a lot better, but so has everyone that's continued on the competitive scene.
It's our second INSERT COIN fundraiser tournament for the BigNasty Homefundit campaign! Let's help one of America's favorite Hugo's and play some @Fightcade 3S!
Use !bracket to learn more!
I revisited #blazbluecentralfiction with a friend and I'll have plenty of funny bloopers from that set. He swears my #Hakumen and #Marisa play similarly enough that he can draw a straight line from my play in #Blazblue to #StreetFighter
For my part, I've said since day one that i play Marisa as if Mila from #DeadOrAlive was inside the Hakumen suit.
I swear that logic makes sense in my head
I talk a lot about the competitive elements of fighting games and what makes them so incredible. But what about if you aren’t that good at them? Is it worth playing them and learning if you’re never going to win a tournament?
Is it worth singing in your car if you aren’t going to sell out a theater? :ablobthinkingeyes:
A brief thread of game announcements this past week that caught my eye:
The #Engrish masters at #FrenchBread are making #UnderNightInBirth2 Sys:Celes. My wife and I enjoy casually messing around in #BlazblueCrossTagBattle and liked the characters that were borrowed from the previous Under Night In Birth game. This new one might be too hardcore for us, though.
I promised more pics of my #arcadestick! Built from scratch from acrylic plates, always in progress, and surprisingly reliable, the SaltFighter V5a is the closest i get to feeling like a shonen protagonist.
I built it from scratch in 2014 and have been iterating on it since, swapping out parts Ship of Theseus style.
With each new game i learn i add artwork of my main to a button. It's a symbol of where I've been. Who I've been.
I'm NaClKnight. Run the set.
I might lose to a Marisa but it's never out of confusion. I understand what she does and wants and dislikes
The only question is if i can sufficiently exploit that with my new character. My Ken doesn't do enough damage yet or create enough pressure, so i have to rely on #StreetFighter fundamentals. I'm too honest and i need to play less tight/defensive
He's less explosive than Marisa but more mobile with more tools. The hard part is unlearning Marisa habits/tactics and learning into what makes Ken Masters scary.
There are confirms i know i need to learn (CH 5HK -> Run, 2MK -> anything) and some i don't know how to apply (2LK, 2LP, 5LK, 623HP) but I'm here learning a pocket character
Details are on the Vencabot Discord server 'bruiseday-updates' channel! See you soon!
Hadn't tuned into Evo since SFV came out. In spite of the adfest, #Evo2023 finals day has been incredibly enjoyable.
Street Fighter 6 seems pretty fun and entertaining to watch. Feels like the future is bright.
IDK if MenaRD will take it but much respect for putting Blanka up there. Impressive play against Tokido.
Something I've been slowly working for quite some time: Break Man (and Blade Man) for the Mega Man Robot Master Mayhem project.
Yeah, the project isn't dead :)
I will do a proper trailer soon
Unlike the normal Mega Man games, this is a fighting game in versus style, highly influenced by games like Marvel vs. Capcom.

Maybe there's a #StreetFighter6 ranked anxiety mind hack in here though.
Because losing IS part of learning, perhaps the place to find a little joy is in ANY change to LP.
Gaining or losing LP means that I put myself out there and gave it a shot. I didn't remain stagnant with my play.
And even losing LP is a sign that I helped someone else in the #fgc play a real game (the best that the matchmaking algorithm could provide, at least).
My friend @PerkFGC makes some pretty rad videos about Fighting Games and Street Fighter specifically:
We're also working on a project for some of you competitive players who want a place to find Tech, Discuss your favorite games, favorite characters and hang out.
Look forward to Heavy Buttons later this year.
Can we please stop this gatekeeping mentality in the #FGC? Not everyone has a super ultra high speed internet connection. Not everyone is super fast at picking up skills/good at retaining them. People have different levels of ability, resources and access needs. Let's make gaming about working together and enjoying the game rather than bullying and bashing people! It's called the Fighting Game *Community* for a reason! #FightingGames #FightingGameCommunity #gaming #accessibility
Hey y'all! My name is LeonaDX, and I'm a burgeoning content creator and vtuber (soon!!)!
I'm do a lot of fighting game stuff, and I've been working on branching out to
do a variety of things every now and again, just to keep things fresh. I hope y'all
enjoy my work and have a great time. Here are all of the other places you can find me:

So I haven't done an #intro yet despite being here a while so I guess it's time
Me: oh gods I suck at fighting games, I should stop playing them altogether
Also me: plays a few hours of fighting games at a friend's house and then attempts to learn old Street Fighter games that very few people are still playing...
No, I can't afford SF6 right now, so I torture myself trying to learn Alpha 3 or 3rd Strike lmao

Bon version 🇫🇷 du coup. #introduction
Franco-Allemand, je suis amateur de vieille tech, analogique ou numérique. J'aime particulièrement réparer (ou du moins essayer) des télés cathodiques.
En terme de JVs, j'aime surtout les #JRPG s et les jeux de bastons (surtout 3.3), et je suis actif dans ma commu #FGC locale en :bzh:.
Un peu un weeb qui s'assume pas.
Je suis fraichement certifié et j'entre dans l'EN en tant que #prof d'info au lycée en septembre.
#acab toujours, surtout en ce moment.
I haven't done my #introduction yet, might as well. (🇬🇧 ver)
As far as videogames go, I mostly enjoy #jrpg and #fightinggames (Third Strike in particular). I'm active in my local #FGC in :bzh: .
Borderline weeb but will never admit to it irl.
Newly-appointed CompSci #teacher in High School.
oh right, never did an #introduction
Hi! AJ / Tyron / “gay pink robot”, both drowning in and contributing to the forever nightmare hole of other people’s software.
I maintain a VRChat mahjong parlor, do yearly fighting game dumpster dives on the Kusoge Advent Calendar, and I’m working with a team of friends on Dr. Robotnik’s Ring Racers, a classic-style kart racer with deep roots in Doom source ports.
When not doing that, I’m shouting about MMO encounter design, falling into arcade game special-interest sinkholes, or getting strangled by my own audio setup as I try to sample “metal pipe falling sfx.wav” in weird bespoke music software.
Feel free to say hi—our instance is pretty small and I’d love to get acquainted with more of the network.
Which game or series has the lowest barrier to competency? Which has the lowest time required before you feel like you're "playing the game?"
Which has the lowest barrier to competition, where you can enter a tournament and actually go 1-2 or 2-2 instead of getting bodied twice in a row and going out sad?
Hello! This is my #introduction post and so I will say a couple of things about myself and then list some interests that may or may not be in my bio.
I am a #physicist by trade and I work with #quantum stuff. But, more interestingly, I really enjoy #boardgames , #ttrpgs, #videogames and books (my #bookwyrm profile is @email@example.com). I also #toot as @firstname.lastname@example.org!
Expect boosts about #anarchism , #sciencefiction #sciencecommunication, #fgc, #ttrpgs, #linux, #spanishpolitics (I am #español after all, from #galicia) and many more! :akko_excited:
Ah, and all things #studiotrigger!
Almost time to take it to the streets!

Ok hey, let’s try this Mastodon thing. I make videos centered around the Fighting Game Community because I love fighting games :blobcattea: I’m an admin for two official Reddit communities (r/mortalkombat & r/multiversus), and I work in Esports on the post production side of things. Like I’m sure a lot of folks, I’m here hoping for a better place in the fallout of the bird app. Looking forward to connecting!
Hi everybody! 👋 This is my #Introduction to the fediverse.
I write code for a living (mainly in Swift) and in my free time, I play 👾 video games (especially #FigthingGames #FGC) and read books (on paper 🙀)
Looking forward to chat with y'all! 🙇
I guess with the recent influx of peeps it's time to revise that #introduction post!
Hi, my name is Ed! I go by he/him, and as stated on my profile am a huge heckin' nerd. General interests (ie stuff you'll find me posting about or retooting) include but are not limited to:
