Comment Re:Meh, you really need a 6 button controller (Score 1) 126

Thanks to the internet and the spread of information, the level of play in fighting games is higher than it's ever been in its history - and yet still there are a lot of high profile players (Luffy, Smug, Problem X, Nuckle Du, Snake_eyez, Alioune in Street Fighter alone) that play fighting games on a controller of some form. So no, I don't think that's true at all - pads themselves don't really have any inherent disadvantage compared to an arcade stick, it's just whatever you are comfortable with.

If you think another image shows things better, then WHY don't you link it instead of multiple posts attacking me personally, and lambasting Bing?


You are the one that's claiming that paid ads are hard to distinguish on Google. Which you've failed to do without showing deliberately edited images.

"There was no WiFi signal when on the desk in front of the window in my room, but after some experiments, I discovered that the signal was quite good... on the ceiling of the bathroom," emailed Marc Petit-Huguenin.

"I have a Nexus S phone, so I taped it on the ceiling of the bathroom, and used tethering over Bluetooth to bridge the gap to the desk," he explained. This is a slow connection, but good enough to send emails over SMTP or use vi [the popular Unix text editor] over SSH."

"Which day?" without the month ends up making one scramble for context.

And here's me thinking that most people, when given a day, will assume that you mean either the current month, or the next if that day has already passed. Using your logic, you're telling us that somebody saying "Fancy going to the cinema on Saturday?" would only serve to confuse people as they would then wonder what week you're talking about.

I don't buy it.
