How To Beat A.I. Seth With Ryu

It seems to me that the best tactic to beat A.I. (superpowered end boss) Seth with Ryu is to go to one edge of the screen and engage in a fireball contest with him. He'll try to jump at you from the wall, but the recovery on Ryu's fireball is fast enough so that once he gets to you, you can Dragon Punch him the moment he gets even close to you.

I still haven't figured out a way to beat him when he's already up in your face. You could use low punches, but he'll throw you faster than you can hit him. Perhaps you could throw escape by pressing LP and LK; I've never managed to master throw escaping in SFIV yet, though.

So part of it is luck, and another part of it is skill. Seth is HARD on any difficulty. Just try to avoid getting too close to the guy when you're fighting him.


In other news, I've only recently figured out that Ryu can hit anyone with an Ultra or a Super right after you use a Low Punch Dragon Punch on them. After you hit an opponent with a dragon punch, they'll start floating down. Once they're at the apex of their 'float' animation, you should have completed the motions for a Super Fireball or an Ultra Fireball. If you do it too late, your fireball will whiff and you'll be at a disadvantage. If you do it early enough, you will hit your opponent for some free, and unblockable damage! The earlier, the better....that's how it is with this super/ultra combo attack.

It's very useful if you've hit someone who is trying to jump at you and you have a full SUPER or ULTRA meter. It can bring you back in the game, or even win you the match much quicker than you expected. Good to save up that super meter for situations like that.

Gamers based in the Philippines: How to get in Xbox Live

NOTE: This article has recently been updated (as of August 12, 2006). Singapore no longer lets you input '00000' as your zip code. Please see below for alternate zip codes.

So you're a Filipino living in the Philippines with a brand-spanking new Xbox 360. You've heard about all the wonderful stories on Xbox Live. You happen to have a pretty good broadband connection. One day, you try out the Xbox Live sign-up options on your 360, and you find out to your dismay that your country is NOT listed. What do you do?

Now, you can probably enjoy your 360 without live at all, but I have to tell you: YOU ARE MISSING OUT. As Peter Moore said in the recent MS Press Conference: "Having your 360 connected to Xbox Live is as vital as having your computer connected to the Internet".

He is so damned right.

I've been playing on Xbox Live for almost a year now (both on my original Xbox and the Xbox 360). Essentially I found out all of this with a little bit of research, a little…

Xbox One - System / Games general review

We picked up a [kinect-less] Xbox One a few weeks ago and have been putting it through its paces. Overall, right now I feel pretty good about this console. But I have to admit, the first experience of buying it is not very good. I'll go with the BAD news first. But do note that it isn't all bad news....

- The first time you bring it home, the console can't work without Internet. That's because it needs an absolutely-unoverrideable mandatory update. Basically, if you get this for your birthday and it's 7PM, expect to actually play games on it around a day or so later, depending on your internet speed.

- The first patch I got for it was around 800MB. This number might have changed by the time of this writing.

- All the launch games now have accumulated patches/updates over 16+ GB in size. Not just Dead Rising 3, which has been reported widely in the media. Even Forza 5.

- My internet at home is PLDT 3Mbps; managed to get all the updates pretty quickly....that's a…

E3 2015 Conferences from the Big Three - My thoughts


- They get a lot of points from me for actually announcing games that will be out in 2015.
- The Backwards Compatibility update is a huge surprise that I absolutely did not expect. Having BC is difficult and expensive to do, but somehow MS managed to do it, which leads me to believe the solution they found is an inexpensive one if they've decided it's practical to do QA work for the Xbox 360s gigantic library of games and make them all work on the Xbox One. If it was too complicated or expensive they probably wouldn't have bothered. But since they did, I think we're going to see full BC some time soon for all games. It's only a matter of time.
- Halo 5 looked fantastic, but 343 has a lot of work to do to restore faith, after the horrific launch of the Halo Master Chief Collection. I think they can do it, and I'd imagine they're certainly motivated now. If they screw this one up....MS might reconsider forming a new team to handle the Halo franchis…
