Harlan, you have sidelined this thread; go away. And for the record, I've never done Karate so I don't visit that forum so have no clue what transpired nor do I care. Take a hint, you are not wanted here! You want to do your sobbing, whining, bickering and beyotch fest; do it in your own life instead of using this for an escape. If you can find happiness in your real life perhaps you can find it here as well. Until then you are destroying more bridges.

And I am glad I do have friends here; can you say the same?


My apology to the people of the Grappling/MMA Forum for harlan's outbursts and my retaliations.




I am harlans friend.

It's kind of silly when I see a post and then an apology about the post....all in the same post.

I'd like to see a good karate video game, but I don't play video games anyway.

I am managing to continually win on expert now with knockouts and submissions. I would say I have played the game for under 3 hours. So I hope that they maybe increase the difficulty somewhat on the real release. I also dislike that the most technical part of the game is a button bash fest. That is the one thing I really hate.

Ironically I have only managed submissions on expert. But I think they have made it more technical the harder the difficulty setting. I mean Chuck and Rua both produce much more complex combos, counters and reversals on the harder difficulty settins but in the same way they give you more opportunites to counter there moves so you can have a more spectacular finish if you will. Anyone else found this?

I saw this thread when it was first posted, and didn't move it to General Talk, because it certainly does have to do with Grappling/MMA. That was my decision, and I stand by it.

I thought Aesir responded right off with an intelligent rationale pages ago. Too bad other hotheads had to go off and make it personal.

I agree. Some people have a personal vendetta or their own ulterior motives to come into this thread other then what the thread was intended and who it was attended for. If you aren't contributing then your views are not required nor wanted.

Thank you ZZ for responding.

I agree with this completely! If people aren't happy about certain threads, it's their choice not to READ them to begin with. Unfortunately, many people don't choose that option when probably they should.

There is the ignore button...feel free. And to quote you...that is just the way I am. I don't feel the need to sugarcoat things, especially after being harrassed. Have a nice day.

I finally managed a sub on expert last night. Shogun wins by armbar late in the third. Of course, I had to beat him down well past the point of an easy KO and attempt sub after sub. I hope it is just the matchup on the demo that makes it so hard.

Aesir, you must have tremendous gaming skills! I really hate to admit it, but I must have already put in 15+ hours on this demo. I can win consistently on all levels other than expert, but on expert it is about 3 to 1, Chuck keeps landing one punch KO's out of the blue.

Now that I got that sub, I can take some time off of the game and get some work done(I really need to work ahead to prepare for the 19th).

'Ignore' is not an option a moderator can take, as you well know.

As for trawling through 6 year old threads, well, I will leave it to you to decide if that is a tad obsessive and OTT, but whatever makes you happy.

Motobusmonkey, I agree with yours, and everyone elses concerns regarding the single player submission situation- lets hope they fine tune the AI before release
