      I know what you mean just hearing that news makes you want to get it as early as possible.It’s going to be alot of hours in practice mode with my players can’t wait.

  15. Izzy says:

    I started reading the fine print, and apparently they give you 20 points for losing a match and 100 points for winning.

    If there’s enough competition and challenges, you could technically take Yoshi and always suicide. If you do it fast enough, you might get more points through losing very quickly than trying to win.

    Of course you have to lose about 5 times faster than you win (and that’s if you did win). And it only works if you have lots of people to play right away.

  16. Kazuya vs Jin says:

    fukers u already got t6 copy, i will be getting mine 2moro morning or monday :) even tho uk release is 30th of october… due to Royal Mail on strike they are sending parcel’s early and last day of strike was today :)

  18. dvj player says:

  19. SolRahlX says:

    The lag was so bad when this tournament was being held that it was pretty much pointless to hold it.

    This was a fucking fail-ass tournament.
