  1. Due to situations beyond my control, I'm going to resend the entry into the event. Thanks
  2. After loosing a friend of mine to cancer about a year ago, and another diagnosed, I feel like I've been in the shadows for far too long. I'm putting in motion, the idea of a "Day of Play" as a fundraiser for all forms of cancer research, with the idea of having all forms of gaming represented. (Table Top RPG, MTG, and Video Games and anything I'm leaving out.) I'm currently getting a list of local shops that I'm not looking to be trolled, for this is a serious matter at hand. If anyone has any ideas to help, I'm all ears. #1) I have a Potential venue. #2) Not sure on giveaways yet. #3) I'm going to attempt to do something specific for each genre of gaming.
  3. Help Cupcheck Get On "Cross Assault"!

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gec5Fz2366E&feature=mfu_in_order&list=UL Go here and watch my audition tape guys!! Tell me what you think!?
  4. With the annoucement of the Capcom reality series, "Cross Assault" I was persuaded by vVvParadice to audition, espically with the call backs from WCG Ultimate Gamer season 2. I saw that there was some catch to this, like with all reality shows. It's based on YouTube views, and likes after I submit the video. You guys gave me constructive critisim when it came to the shout cast video but even though the video was insanely shitty (I said it..not you guys!) I learned a few things. This will not be the same Cupcheck that auditioned for Ultimate Gamer, I have had a lot of things happen in my life, personal and professional, that have basically made me a new man. So as a former member of vVv I must request this one favor. Will you guys help me get on the show? Filming starts tommrow morning. Any help would be nice..... Cupcheck
  5. Starting Your Own Podcast #2: Bringing Concepts To Reality

    I don't know which part this would go in. When you start, some people will get a huge fan base, some don't. Don't always assume the best, but don't expect the worse.
  6. With EVO in the books, I've decided to take a stab at the world of Marvel 3. After about 2 years of Super Street Fighter 4 (And not yet played Arcade Edition) I thought I would take a stab at the newest version of the loved franchise, even though I wasn't good with the first two in the series. Right now, I'm sitting at 33-100 and I've got a few reasons behind that. Let the trolls know I am not, or have I ever claimed that I'm any good at the game. I've just got some issues. #1) Change the Result Screen Please? When I first started playing I ended up getting like a 30-40 game loosing streak, and what really pissed me off was the result screen, that showed the winning team. In the lower right hand corner of the screen it says... "Your finished already?" or something along those lines.... It severly pissed me off. At the time It made me so mad during the losing streak, that I was telling my brother "I'm done with Marvel.". I was so sick of seeing the screen. After a few games with friends on a winning streak I decided to play back in random matches. I got to about 10 wins, then I realized...... #2) Match Making Sucks It's just one of those things that follows me everywhere I go, even in the Uncharted 3 Multiplayer Beta. I know in order to get better you have to play against some of the best players the game has to offer, but what if your going against someone that's played ten to twenty more games than you, only to see that they are on a triple digit win streak? You can't do a damn thing in that match when the opponent does the same combos, with the same teams that I saw in Marvel Top 8 at EVO. Not only is this a major let down for me, but what about new players who want to be competitive with it? Which leads into..... #3) DO SOMETHING ABOUT PHOENIX!! The reason I loose to her about 99.9% of the time, is because I have no idea how to play against her. (Cues Up Viscant's "How To" to play against her.) When I play with her in my team, she automatically get's snapped in, and get's hosed. When I play against her...all the snap backs I waste meter on, are countered and when level 5 hits I'm screwed. She's been the most powerful character in the game sense Sentinel got nerfed, and I wonder if she will get the same treatment when UMv3 hits stores later this year. If you have the same issues please leave a comment below, and I would love the feedback. Cup
  7. Reo....Being a die hard fan of the fighting genre and communnity...I must say congrats on your 2nd place finish. GET EM NEXT YEAR!!
  8. 3 Years :-)

  9. Congrats on the interview and happy birthday!!

  10. Riot Games announces new Coop vs. AI game mode in League of Legends New game mode coming soon in the acclaimed online strategy game Dublin, 21rst of January 2011 - League of Legends is known to be a competitive game where millions of players are battling fierce PvP matches each day. Now a new game mode has been announced and it is time for human players to join forces and fight against selected champions controlled by a clever and tactical artificial intelligence. Coop vs AI will soon be added to League of Legends and gives players the chance to practice with their friends and secretly try new tactics before heading into the real PvP. But be warned, do not underestimate the AI - they have lots of tricks up their sleeves and will not hesitate to use them. More information can be found on the official website here : http://eu.leagueoflegends.com/news/league-legends-presents-co-op-vs-ai
  11. After realizing that I've dug myself a hole to try to qualify for a Pro Tour event, let alone the World Championships, I've decided to join in the 3rd Season of the World Championship Qualifiers online. Starting fresh, and completely from scratch, I've decided to spend all of my Christmas money to try to do something in a few weeks, that I couldn't do in the past 5 years. The only reason I decided to play online, outside the trip to San Francisco, is that you start over from scratch, your DCI Rating, match record, completely new, which I just needed to have the fire lit under my ass. Upon activating my account, all I had to do was buy a pack of Core Set 2011, and I was off to my first draft. There was 3 different drafts, and my dumb ass decided to play the most difficult one to win. The Single Elimination M11 draft. 2 Games and I was done, which had to be the most painful experience I felt in this venture. I ended up winning 6 packs after winning 6 matches in Swiss, yet all 6 matches were hollowed victories. After winning my first match in Swiss, gaining a pack, I preceded to get a bye. I talked to the admin, and he confirmed that with each bye, not only do you get a win, you get a pack with that win. This happened yet again, giving me a 2nd win, along with another pack. I got paired down in the last round, with the last 0-2 left after everyone else dropped, gaining my last win, my 3rd pack and my 3 points for my only tournament win. With that only tournament win, I felt the best I have in quite along time. After numerous drafts, and resisting the urge to compete in a sealed tournament, which was $16 more, I ended up with only 3 points for the season (With the Tournament Victory).. After some trades, I was able to draft a set for free, with sets I haven't played in 8 years. Overall I loved the experience, and took the knowledge from the online matches and played IRL, and was the bubble boy. 1-1-1 and ended up 11 points off the Top 8 on tiebreakers. I had more fun in Magic the past 2 months, than the last 8 years, because Ii was starting completely over. With this mindset, I was the happiest person in my house because everyone else was paying bills. Cupcheck
  12. At the 2008 Magic: The Gathering World Championships, I was able to beta test Duels of the Planeswalkers on the Xbox 360. 2 years later and on the heels of the 2010 World Championships, I was able to get a review copy of the "Duels of the Planeswalkers" base game. For some reason, something about the game didn't really rub me the right way. The gameplay is definitely one of the title's weak points. After playing the game for 7+ years, I've gotten all the motions down, like responding during certain steps in the turn. "Duels" is more simplified in that it doesn't go through every step, which completely skips your draw and upkeep step by not allowing you to respond before upkeep triggers. I've lost A LOT of games by forgetting this. Furthermore, you cannot customize your own decks due to the lack of being able to have a card pool. When you unlock new cards, you really can't change the stock decks because the ability to do so simply isn't there. All you are able to do is add more cards, making your deck even bigger; if you are like me and prefer to have your decks as small as possible, the only way to keep it anywhere near 60 is to forego some of the newer and better cards that you unlock as you make your way through Campaign mode. After the full card pool for each deck is unlocked, you'll have 17 new cards for each color, but this isn't as great as it sounds. Once I had unlocked the white deck's 17 cards, I ended up having a 75+-card deck, which was highly annoying as it made games more drawn-out and not as smooth as they perhaps would have been had I been playing in real life. One of the strong points of "Duels", however, is that there's a lot to do. Offline, the game features a Campaign mode in which the player battles a number of computer opponents for the chance to unlock new decks and cards. In addition to this, there is Challenge mode, where players are tasked with finding the right combination of plays on a single turn to beat their opponents. If that weren't enough, the game also features single and co-op play against the computer. Online, players can go head-to-head in either casual or ranked competitive games over Xbox Live against up to three opponents, with play modes including 2-4 player free for all and 2v2 aka 2-headed Giant. The game tries to cater to new players as well, making it possible for them to play with a mentor of sorts and learn the ropes. Despite its glaring gameplay flaws, I enjoyed playing Duels of the Planeswalkers and would recommend it to new players just getting into playing Magic. The base game is $9.99 with 3 expansions for $4.99 each, so it won't break the budget gamer's wallet, either. All in all, it's a good game for a Magic player to own and should provide at least a couple dozen hours of entertainment; if you've ever played Magic and enjoyed it even a bit, I'd recommend at least giving this game a try.
  13. The events that happened on December 4th 2010, during the Trials for Grand Prix Atlanta, was one of the worst experiences in the game of Magic: The Gathering. Starting off with a record of 0-2, not only did I get pared up but it happened in the final 3 rounds, completely pissing me off in the process. When I asked the head judge on this matter, "It's done by the computer, out of my hands." was his response. My deck wasn't that great but I was planning to win at least a game, and when you "Plan" on something to happen, it normally dosen't go according to said "Plan". I ended up with no Byes for the Grand Prix. (Winner gets 3 buys for the 1st 3 rounds of the Grand Prix.) Not even a game win, let alone a match win. I am highly contemplating retiring all together, because in the 7 years I've been playing on and off, I am not where I wanted to see myself with the game. Right now I'm building a EDH Deck....and I think that's as far as I will go with the game. Cupcheck
