Avoiding the Puddle Episode #10 featuring Bronson Tran!

October 29, 2010

The long awaited Bronson Tran episode, two time Tekken National Champ, and also one of the original Tekken players in the US is finally on the show.  He was a hard man to track down, but Aris was able to finally catch up with him and bring you guys an episode full of smack talk and interesting Julia/Bruce strategies, such as never landing juggles.  Before we get to the Bronson segment, MYK and Aris recap MLG DC, and answers some of your questions!

For any suggestions on topics you guys would like Aris and MYK to cover, send them to:

    man wtf. this podcast is 10 episodes deep. people should know what to expect from it by now. someone should upload the original version because i love me some racism

    also is MYK’s girl the one that was hanging out in the background of the last box arena tekken tourney? the one in the grey i think. if so then yeah she way too fine for him and that relationship is a fraud.

    In terms of ground hitting attacks with Yoshi, uf+1, delayed d+1 and uf+1+2 hit grounded and can do increased damage if held longer (d+1 and uf+1+2).

    Seriously, thank you for shitting on Yoshi. Hopefully Mike Murray and Harada will address Yoshi’s problems that you mentioned. Aris, I know you have lots of Yoshi experience from SC – wouldn’t it be nice if some of the stance transitions from SC were in Tekken?

    I dont want tekken tag tournament 2 to come really….

    I wana carry on playing 6. As a whole gaming as a pass time is in a real bad state with all these rubbish shooting games (halO, COD) It would be great if we could have tekken 6 going for a few years more, so we could at least catch up with the Asian countries.

    Also as an observation. countries like Japan get Tekken tag 2 first, it will be in the arcades, they will be playing and training on it, and Europe and America wont even get a chance to play, and as always, we will be playing catch up.

    HARADA, THIS IS NOT FAIR. I HAVE BEEN PLAYING TEKKEN (BADLY) SINCE TEKKEN 1, I AM FAN, BUT THIS JUST DOESNT SEEM FAIR. RELEASE IT EVERYWHERE AT THE SAME TIME, GIVE EVERYONE AN EQUAL CHANCE, AND YOU NEVER KNOW. WE COULD SEE MORE THEN JUST NIN/ KNEE DO WELL. AND MAYBE YOU MAY SEE EVEN SEE THE TIER LIST SHAKEN UP.

    Thanks to Bronson Tran. Had know idea my fave Julia player was such a sh!t talker!

      I don’t think you will see a console release for TTT2 for a while, most likely 2012.

      Pretty much all the balancing is done in arcades, and there’s no arcade scene in Europe or the US.

      Look at Soul Calibur 3 and 4 for an idea of what could happen if it isn’t released in arcades first.

        Good point now I think of it. Soul calibur after 2 doesnt count lol.

        Shame really. My Ivy was pretty sick back in the day!!!!

        Just bigging myself up a bit,

      Harada~sama is the King of Iron Fist, he can do whatever he wants – 😉
      but I do rather like that outlook on getting TTT2 out to as many first world countries as possible in around the same time frame that Japan gets it.

      I do however understand if they really do only want to release TTT2 as a Test Launch in Japanese Arcades just so that they can run the game and check for bugs and balancing amongst the Japanese Community before they release a TTT2BR.

      Harada~Sensei seems interested in TTT2 every where from all the time he’s spending all over the world in the different communities – – – if it is viable and not at huge cost to the company to release Tekken in most countries around the same time Japan gets it – I am sure he would take it into heavy consideration.

      lol @ Bronson comment –

        At the end of the day, I want Tekken to be taken more seriously, everywhere.

        I just wish Europe would be taken more seriously too I guess.

    Another euro player here. Sorry for potential grammar mistakes.

    Great podcast as always. It’s very interesting for me to hear different opinions about the same game, from different perspectives. The stories with Nin + girl and Darth Vader were awesome. I play Hwoarang and Dragunov now in BR , which I both consider lower mid(D) tier. I don’t know who plays Hwoarang in the US, but a general Hwo discussion would be very nice.

    Aris, for the pad-stick argument:
    I play T6 with a logitech keyboard with a converter at home. I feel this is the most consistent way to play this game. I understand that this is an arcade game foremost, however the game shouldn’t be about “what’s your controller”, but “what ridiculous shit can you pull off with it” . I think that correct USB support would raise the already expensive BR cabinets’ prices only marginally, that investment should easily come back in profit from the larger playerbase. More people playing is never a bad thing.

    Keep it up!

      Yes! I’ve played stick, pad and keyboard in the past and I must say that keyboard potentially could be the best of the three only if the precision at which the keys could be pressed was as good as with arcade buttons. I tried few weeks ago Tekken3 on PC emulator and landing EWGF and wavedashing was so much easier to do with very minimal practice. Unfortunately these keyboard/button-only setups are pretty underground stuff so we won’t be seeing any high quality standards for that anytime soon..

      Aris: are there any joe king match videos online?

        My keyboard of choice is a Logitech Ultra Flat, which is a pretty slim and the buttons move little
        with each press, it’s precise and fast enough for WD,JFSR and other JFs. One of my friend imported
        a Saulabi 4k stick, which he modded a bit. I consider it very good, the stick is very responsive.
        But I am not a stick guy, I play Starcraft 2 more than Tekken as well.

    Speaking of female players, did you Aris happen to see the Greek Tekken player at WCG I think her name was Serena and played in the same group as Binchang and Ryan Hart? Was she just a random button masher?
