OMG, we have managed to turn a video game chat into a 'stand up vs grappling' debate I am off to whip myself with birch bark as penance before Oldman jumps in with a 'stupid tax' levy

Great game- shame we cant get together over a beer or 12 and kick eachothers virtual a$$es

I hear ya. Have you ever noticed, that playing against someone who has no MA training, even if they can play games, usually gets beat on fighting games? Just another reason to study.

i have to make 2 notable exceptions to your otherwise astute observation.
1. My Mum. She is a yoda of video games. Has been since the Sinclair ZX spectrum. I remember clearly having a marathon gaming session with the guys when Tekken 2 came out. I went 8 hours straight in 'winner stays on' rules. A few weeks later mum asked if she could have a go. Chose Yoshimitsu 'cuz he looks cool', had a couple of matches 1 player, then proceeded to beat me 4 times in a row Been the same on every damn console fighter she ever played.

2. My wife. most of our courtship took place over 'strip tekken tag' and absinthe She is a fighting game ninja, but to be fair, she was a good fighter in real life till her back problems.

Man, must be nice to have a MOM and a WIFE who plays. I dont have either. As a matter of fact they both hate them. Im a huge gamer. Always have been, playing primarily fighters and FPS games.

It was my Mum's 60th birthday in September, the family clubbed together and got her an Xbox360 and a copy of Oblivion. Made her day (she cried and everything) since then my dad says its akin to being a widower (to be fair, he spends a fair bit of time playing tiger woods on their PS2)

Den and i have been known to settle minor disputes over fighting games 'winner chooses take out' -that sort of thing.

its a gaming family- has been since the original atari

My mum bought her copy of Oblivion over when she visited a couple of weeks ago- I played her copy for about 30 mins, then went out and bought my own. Just Cause and Dead Rising have both been gathering dust since that day. Its not a game, its another life

That means that you ignored the 1st mates warning, boarded the ship, killed the pirates and stole the nirnroot from the captains table- thats naughty, I would never have done that
i bacame a vampire this morning- there i was catching some sleep in an inn (paid 20 gold for the room and everything!), one dream about some git drinking from my neck later, i am a bloodsucking fiend! Fortunately, i am a goth, my character is a dark elf and his Arena grand champion name is 'Shadowstepper', so it is actually a very cool character development, but i can see how some could become quit upset about that sort of thing
