So I said I wasn't going to buy it, but then I saw the things possible in character creation and I threw the cash down. Sure, the horse heads are fun, but everything else is way better than expected! I knew what I was getting into re: light single player content, but that's fine. It's as everyone says, the netplay is wonderful. I was having connection trouble today, matches would sometimes hang at the beginning or drop, and almost everyone was showing at 1 bar... yet the matches themselves were almost completely smooth and it ran better than KOF XIII at 3 bars the entire time. Amazing! Also, yes, the live chat box while spectating is gold. Really good stuff. Some more modes would be good, sure, but since this is the first SC game I've owned my own copy of since SC2, the game itself is more than enough for me. Outside of some goofing around with 3, this is my first major experience with the series in years and I'm struggling quite a bit. It's quite frustratingly different from anything else I'm used to, but when I pick something up and it works or I do something right it feels great. Still, I can't help but wish there was more tutorial - especially in what to do when you're defending. The second I'm downed I feel like I'm completely and utterly boned... and I'm legitimately surprised by how irate it makes me. I don't usually get mad at games and I certainly don't when playing other people. Losing while I'm in control and can see my mistakes is one thing, but when I just get completely swept away by the computer and am helpless to do anything about it and don't learn a thing the entire time, the fun starts to slip away. This game is awfully foreign to me and I want to understand how I can avoid this stuff. Thinking about picking up the guidebook to read a bit more about the game's systems. Anyone take a look at it yet?
