Tenshimitsu : Saikoro, did you play Yoshi in Tekken 5.0, Tekken DR? :)
I played 5, but only on the PS2 for its initial year and a half of release. I then traded the game in as I was hankering for some tourney play, but nobody was hosting anything at that time (And I wasnt an avid Internet fiend to look up such things). I also played Dark Resurrection on the PSP for three straight months before Tekken 6's release. My Tekken prime time was back in Tag's heyday. I was in the arcade on a near daily basis as thats when I had my liscense and mom's car :D. Those were the days to where 50 cents would last upwards of 90 minutes. I pissed lots of my friends off!! And the group of people who played alongside me were no slouches either as 95% of our matches were dictated by the time running out!! There were at least 10 of us who played competitively.... it was like a Fight Club of sorts!! I would like to add in that I played Tekken 1 through 3 LOTS as I was only a teen with lots of spare time on my hands. I was 14 when Tekken graced my PSOne. Im honestly feeling bad for trading all of my previous Tekkens' in.... I had some overly ridiculous records in, like a 98% win ratio with Yoshimitsu as none of my friends could ever beat me, alongside a whopping 1,000+ uses with him in Tekken 2. Hell, I would say Ive used him for a total 8,000+ matches. Time adds up after 15 years, ya know??
Compared to Dark Resurrection, Yoshimitsu's more important moves (Knee Cap, every blockable sword move.... which I still cant wrap my brain around.... its a fucking sword!!) feel a bit toned down, but his bag of tricks/mindgames and swordplay have opened up considerably. Like 1,000 fold considerably.
If only you get a chance, try to record your matches, Saikoro. If only you'd like me to evaluate your opponents' level of play, and maybe yours as well? It depends on you, sometimes I'm asked to do it and I think I'm pretty good at observations.
Ive actually got a good 5 Player Matches recorded on my Digital Camera, all prepared to get edited (Placing in a song to blot out my rambling) and submitted on YouTube. Im gonna upload those come this Sunday unless anything comes up, so keep your eyes peeled. I also feel like a dunce as Jose and I had some pretty phenominal matches at my last Tournament, I wish I could have brought my freggin' camera!!
Lastly, I do have to say that one of my weaknesses that I notice is becomming overly offensive to the point to where I leave myself wide open for a life draining counterattack. Otherwise, I just need to play more human matches with people who are actually good, if not better, than I. On LIVE/PSN, its all about hoping to meet up with a great player who isnt a cheap bastard. Good luck there....
