If I can take a stick through security with my long terrorist beard and a shirt that says Giant Bomb in large letters on the front, then anyone can.

They normally don't confiscate sticks, right? The USB cable should be obvious that it's just another controller.

Might get some extra passes through the x-ray and some close inspection; had a couple OMG IT HAS WIRES guys in the past.

if you leave it in your bag through security, you can guarantee they will pull you to the side for close inspection. Instead pull it out and toss it in a bin by itself, then its fine. Treat it like they tell you to treat a laptop.

If you decide to put it in a checked bag, expect one of these:

EDIT: Also a lot of fun going through security when I brought a PS3, stick, and my laptop, alongside my coat and shoes...like 6 or 7 bins for just me.

You'd be shocked at how much I'm seen as Arab actually. Either way color doesn't matter when it comes to that anyway, as every member of the NM FGC has been able to get a stick through security at one point or another.

It'll definitely be inspected, sometimes you'll be asked to open it up, but you'll get through no problem.

I thought he'd be guaranteed. It just doesn't feel like a KOF major without Reynald vs Romance at some point. :(

Well Reynald can't attend (missed flight due to documentation issues) so it wouldn't have happened either way lol.

Without winning a tournament the only way Romance could have gotten in is via special invite from SNK but unfortunately he didn't luck out with that.

Honestly it's too hard to call since there are too many killers in that lineup, especially when the tournament is Japanese style FT1 (though luckily it's at least double elimination).

A bunch of players are already there and word is that Toshi (amazing Kensou player from Peru) has been winning all the FT5/FT10 sets (even against the Japanese player M').

Xiaohai is strong but he also often benefits from longer sets, which this tournament won't have. And ET (who has also qualified) for example has sent him to losers in a Chinese tournament previously.

Reynald definitely had a chance though, it really sucks that he won't attend.

Health and super are the only meters you need. Once you add more shit to that, then your game becomes shittier.

All the shitty fighters have extra bullshit that makes them bad games. It's ASW's specialty. That Under Night whatever game has that stupid bar at the bottom of the screen too.

Basically what I'm saying is fuck anime fighters.

I kind of got thats all you were trying to come up with something to bitch about in order to say it again. After all, we'd talked about DFCI and Arcana for at least a page. However your meter comment is just ludicrous. Its not even something thats an anime thing even. Case in point.



Maybe you should build a wall against anime fighters or something.

Street Fighter is absolutely anime, and you should point and laugh at anyone who disagrees.. But I like it despite that because the V Meter is so easy to understand that it negates the complaint.

Is Injustice the exception? Every character has some sort indicator next to their meter for their character trait--some of them are even additional meters!

ASW is the only company who makes games worse than the Vs series. It's quite a feat.

I actually forgot that Injustice existed, so you may or may not have a point.
