Bogus Journeys – Episode 1 – Really Homie?!

by Rip


Welcome! To the first episode of Bogus Journeys! In this new series from us here at Level Up Your Game we play Tekken 6… Online. Whoa, whoa whoa. Tekken 6…online? Yes. Tekken 6.. ONLINE. As this was our first time doing this we sort of winged it and hoped for the best, so any feedback, suggestions etc would be greatly appreciated.

I was playing online a little bit ago, and the actual movement wasn't lagging, but the time delay made poking and juggling impossible. I just turtled and punished all day. Also, i think a raven or jin episode would help. Raven is a misunderstood player and i think with practice he could go pretty far. It would be nice to learn something about him from a pro. >.> <..<

@Rip: I get your point, I wasnt talking about your particular show because its a really good one to me, but about offline players and their attitude in general. If you read tekken zaibatsu youll see that many players are actually not hating on the bad offline mode, but on the players. "Online scrubs" and similar stuff. I mean its called "online bogus" and not "online mads n bads" and I appreciate that alot ;) Anyway, keep up with the good work.

They got a point though. Mocking online players because they have bad habits is the "IN" thing to do as it seems when you are an arcade regular, but it does make you look rather childish most of the time. I LOVE these videos simply because its very enjoyable to see offline pros join "the other world" and get entertained by all the "really homie?" and some such shit. But instead of being elitist and arrogant about it, one should rather just be glad that they have arcades around their area. Europe doesnt have arcades, but still has a tekken community that follows all the stuff AvoidingThePuddle, levelup etc. iz doing. Mocking someone because they play online is silly really considering its not a matter of choice but a matter of where you live which determines if youre an offline or online player. It also is a misconception that online players dont place well in tourneys because they are online players. The sole reason for this is that they dont place at all because they dont attent in the first place. Also if youre not from asia or the us, youre not gonna practice tekken 10h/day because the flight to any major tournament would still cost you 4 figures, its not worth it. If I would dedicate my time to practice tekken 6 alot, I am positive that I would easily beat many of the best players out there, but the thing is, I would still not be able to play against em in the first place. I then would be a pro at beating the 5-6 other casual players around my area, great :P Anyway, lets get to this again when TT2 hits because chances are, many areas in the US wont get it on arcade and will be forced to play it online just like europeans. Ps: Rip Id really like to hear your opinion about this one ;o

Online is trash. Even if online is all some people have online is still trash. Period.

We definitely realize that not everyone has access to offline Tekken. I thought the series would be fun to do because the online SYSTEM isn't great. I have nothing against online PLAYERS. There is a big difference between hating on the system and hating on the players. A lot of people seem to think we have a problem with online players because they play online. There are bad players both offline and online. If we're hating on an online player its because of the player not because of where he plays. Long story short, I think a lot of people are reading a lot deeper into the things we're saying. IMO, a purely online player can not place top 3 in an offline tournament (USA as this is what I have experience with). The knowledge, skillset, and experience you get online will only carry you so far. Hopefully TTT2 will have better netcode so it applies more directly because right now its almost two separate games online/offline.

This is cool and all, but you guys should also do something similar to what CC is doing with Running Sets. Online play is good for a laugh here and there, but I would prefer to see two people in a FT10 with player intros/commentary/trash talk since beating up on online players gets old quick.

Top 10 Entertaining Ways to Play Online Tekken 1. Use silly customizations and style opponents with items...bonus if you killed opponent with said item! 2. Sandbag opponents, essentially giving them the first 2 rounds, and unleash your fury from round 3 and win it all! 3. Ki-Charge after every win....try to incite hatemail! Then respond with, "U Mad?" 4. Finish the last round with Heihachi's spanking throw....or do nothing but Heihachi spank the opponent throughout the match. 5. Spam phoenix smasher only. Win the whole set with top notch defense and the might of phoenix smashers. 6. Turtle like there's no tomorrow. Bonus if infinite stage and you win all your fights with timeout. 7. Troll with Heihachi's Shadow Step or Bob's backroll....hit and run tactics for the win. 8. Do unblockables right in opponent's face...Wang, Kazuya's spinning uppercut, and King's moonsault in particular. 9. Annoy opponent with Alisa's B 1+2 and her BDCs.... 10. Hit opponent with Jack's moves that requiring holding down to max.

Yeah, be a retard that 'helps' the online community, follow this 10 easy steps to make it even more worse then it already is. The problem with people online is that when there is no face to face communication people tend to act like a dick and ragequit and what not, simply because they are hidden behind a internet and lack any decency and respect , i would like to see that one in the arcade acting like that... It is not only the sucklish online mode that is the problem it is people do all this things... As for the show itself, it might have passed wrong message but i don't believe it was intentional, in a way the guy on the other side might have been allot worse, it is the lack of any insight and point that is and will hurt the show.

My top 10 was sarcastically speaking by the way... Do you really think you can get away with this kind of stuff in competitive offline play? I don't think so.

i would much rather like to see Running Sets, both the match quality and the shit talking would be better. this is quite funny though xD

Finally our own Tekken Cross Counter. The only thing I would recommend is to take turn's playing. That would be the logical thing to do. Thx.

Hehe don't worry, we took turns, just not in this first episode.

Im really looking forward to the next episode, you should really make them longer - you didnt get together for just 20minutes, did u?

Rip

Don't want them to be any longer than this really. I'm a fan of this length. We did film for longer though so there should be a new episode next week

Oh and for feedback: make the episodes longer, and switch players after each round. Like just pass around the stick for more randomness. And less mains but more bogus fighters maybe? :D Also you could actually try to show how abusable some stuff online is. Like pick Bryan or Marduk and just work dat snakeedge ;)
