I was going to comment that these are becoming exhausting and going on too long with way to much theatrics but then due to the quality if the performance and the hilarity of the comments i find I can only say keep up the good work Jim!

Please consider less is more though…

Jimstitution, from the clips at the end it is clear you suffer for your art. In so doing, you suffer for us all.

Thank God for you.

So, the 2D fighting mechanic this commenter chose was throws, something that 3D fighting games have too, and not the full air combos? I’d love to see the reaction to games like MVC infinite and BlazBlue.

Ok, I know these comments shouldn’t bother me because they’re from a clear scrublord lord of scrubs may long he reign, but Jesus Christ, mate… If I’m throwing a lot it’s because you’re not defending against it! Neutral jump and heavy kick!

That really is it. The stuff they’re complaining about is stuff they can’t handle and therefore is unfair and ‘dirty.’ If someone is doing nothing but throwing in a fighting game, figure out the way to counter that. If it’s a good game (spoiler: the Tekken games are pretty good games) there’s a way to get around being juggled too. This reeks of ‘I am terrible at Tekken and also Call of Duty but it’s everyone else’s fault for being so cheap and fighting dirty instead of having the honorable duels using the rules I’ve made up in my head… Read more »

To the guy this is mocking, do you also complain about the fact that the knight can jump over other pieces in chess? Do you find it a cheap when people double jump you in checkers? DO YOU THINK IT’S MORE STYLISH TO NOT UNFREEZE OTHER PLAYERS IN FREEZE TAG? I suck at fighting games, but even I can see how brain shatteringly stupid the basis of your entire argument is!

Oh I ask the same of Dark Souls “purists” who think that mechanics such as summoning shouldn’t be used despite them existing as a mechanic. Would those people say that you should never use the mushroom or fire flower in Mario because it’s CLEARLY cheating?

I gotta wonder. Is it a thrill, an outrage, or an embarrassment for these commenters when they find out Jim Fucking Sterling Son is taking the piss out of their posts?

Probably all plus more.

Maybe, as a mere serf, that is how you want to see it, but for us true h’ardcore gamers Amiel is giving us a wondrously legitimate platform that showcases just how incredibly h’ardcore we are compared to the casual gaming riff-raff. For that he should celebrated and, frankly, copious bunting must be put out in his honour.

Option four they fail to realise they are being mocked.

Considering that Jim said there’s a neogaf thread of people getting upset about the episode my guess is option B. Personally I love the idea that this show could become self perpetuating by covering fan bases that have gotten angry about being featured on the show.

This looks like it takes a LOT out of you, Jim. Kudos for the effort, it’s appreciated 🙂

I know it kind of goes without saying with guys like this but this one in particular really feels like it’s dripping in insecurity. The number of times he has to reassure us that he doesn’t suck at the game whilst bashing what I understand to be a pretty key feature of it.

I don’t even think that guy is an “elite” gamer. Sounds like a tryhard scrub acting like he’s pro for not using “cheap” tactics.

MuddyScarecrow

Sure being juggled is probably annoying but I’ve always seen it as an “elite” technique myself since I sure as hell can’t do it. And it really sounds like he can’t do it either, hence his whiny little bitch fit here.

MuddyScarecrow

This guy clearly sucks at Tekken. Otherwise he wouldn’t feel the desperate compulsion/desire to reassure us all that he DOESN’T suck. So he of course has to craft a narrative that he’s been gaming since the 80s is a PLUS player and that anyone who juggles is a dirty filthy cheater because he’s not good enough to use it- I MEAN because he’s a MUCH BETTER hardcore gamer than to result to such CHEAP TRASH! Naturally.

You can always tell the people who are just shits across all multiplayer games like this. Every game has something that’s ‘broken’ or ‘unfair’, and it’s always the thing they don’t know how to deal with. Whether it’s juggling or throws or its camping or it’s certain weapons, no loss can ever be this kind of poster’s own fault, and anyone who beats them didn’t /really/ win.

This guy must just be a real joy to play with or interact with in any way.

Miles Saintborough

I used to be that guy

Kirk Hammer

Yeah, if he’s been playing fighting games this long and they’re still getting juggled etc it speaks to them not having learned (or even looked into) how to deal with it and rationalising it as a “cheap tactic” that everyone else should not use instead. Like, I’m learning fighting games ATM and one of my first points was “man, I’m having trouble dealing with fireball-spamming opponents. I should practice more and look up some strategies” not getting angry and denouncing it as “cheap”. If only there was some kind of obnoxious, commonly-used expression I could say to this guy… something… Read more »

What’s Bo3?

Also I love that Tekken has a non-binary character in them that is allowed to be human and not a shapeshifter/alien/god etc with Leo (:

COD: Black Ops 3, pretty sure.

Leo really is great.

Hooooly fuck that LOOOOOOOOOOL made me jump. I call bullshit on this guy gaming “since the 80s” No one who I presume is now in their at LEAST mid 30’s gives a shit about how much you throw in street fighter or if you use an smg in cod. Probably a little kid trying to up their nerd cred.

God, that “LOOOOOL” at the start was so shrill it made my speakers vibrate!
…I mean, I know they vibrate anyway in order to make sound, but aside from… bah, forget it.
