Panda hun, be a good little boy and start working on the Winter Brawl thread.

Also the The On Blast show will be lovely this week.

The conclusion between EMP and EMPR will be at hand. Each will finalize their wager for the battle at Winter Brawl. Also supposedly Jebailey will be on and we all know how much Triforce loves Jebailey. Besides that, the VGX crew and other FGC staples will probably be on and put their two cents on things.

Going back through the last two pages of the last FGW thread makes me so happy that I overlooked posting in it today. Some of you guys have way too much hate for 3rd strike characters... :P

Also, Dahbomb killed me with the Phoenix Wright comment. Remember guys, Wright got in over Megaman (X). [/still salty]

The most important thing to happen last week was the meltdown from the "Oh Yay, another Mario game" thread. This week's FGW thread should've been "Oh Yay, another major tournament".

I'm cool with classic Megs if they OD with Rush Jet as a mobility option.

That thread and today's "Nintendo, why you no 3rd party" thread are pretty much heralds to life on GAF post the 20th. Imagine my surprise when three or so of the usual communities I check in on here have casualties all from the latter thread.

I agree. It is like watching a re-run of murphy brown. You can see it is comedy but it is referencing topics that are from so long ago and now so irrelevant that it is hard to laugh.

Having said that, thanks again for the thread Enzo.

I rewatched the Darkstalkers teaser video last night again from NYCC, and I feel like we'd get a new DS this year.
I won't hold my breath on the gameplay myself tho, but hey we got 2 of the must have DS games coming out soon, so no biggy.

It was more in reference to the coming week. Y'know, considering the biggest thing in gaming right now is the impending Orbis announcement.
