The Iron Man infinite combo

I would like to say for the record that i love fighting games. I may have gotten into the hype way too late, but can you blame me? I was born in the point in time when 2D fighting games were at their peak in popularity. Still, most of the games nowadays have aged pretty well, namely the Capcom vs. franchise. One of my favorite games in the franchise is Marvel vs. Capcom 2, the sequel to the first crossover fighter and 4th installment into the franchise itself. There are many reasons that contribute to the game’s popularity, from the massive character roster to the flawless 60fps speed. But it’s defining factor, of which it’s successor MvC 3 improves upon, is. the. COMBOOOOOOOOOOOSSSSSS!! If you aren’t trying to figure out the character’s special moves, you’re trying to land more than three hits on your opponent with said character.

here’s the video that shows what I mean:

Basically, chaining attacks lands you more points, and the more points you get, the better your score looks. Some characters have combos that are easy to perform, and others have combos that require directional input to start (ex: Down+PUNCH, Up+H-KICK). However, one of my favorite characters, which is iron man, happens to have a an infinite combo, which is basically a combo that can be inputted and can be continued until you are finished beating your opponent like that (which is unlikely) or have depleted all of their vitality. Iron man’s combo pretty simple to understand, yet hard to input. If you manage to input the command correctly, the end result should be this:

If you really want to know how to perform this combo (that is, if you own the game, which should be on the playstation store or Xbox live), then this vid should teach you what you need to know:

If you can do it no problem, then congrats: you have just found a way to scare whoever it is you play against when you pick Iron man.

Greetings, everyone. For the assignment, I thought that I would post the link and embed the video that I talked about in class:

First off, I just decided to go with this because I was planning on finding another clip from the show, but decided to let it be seen by everyone else since I felt it would make more sense to do that. Plus, It is like a little bit of an accomplishment for me, since I finished watching the entire series yesterday (Thank god for Netflix) and this video was like a medal to me.

I know, sounds dorky. Sue me.

In all honesty, the reason this video tickles my funny bone so much is actually because of three things:

  1.  They (Ed Wuncler III and Gin Rummy) actually take time to discuss the pros and cons of the Bluetooth headset, while also adding in some funny situations and dialogue.
  2. All this time, they are robbing an unknowing resident’s house, but not even utilizing proper burglary etiquette, like keeping quiet and Rummy taking that beer from the fridge.
  3. The last scene, when Rummy crouches to look under the bed and Ed comments, to which Rummy looks over and sees Ed on his headset. (gif):

Caption: (Ed) I like how that booty move, doe.

 

Other than that, it really does relate to the problem of most people who have headsets. I remember once seeing a guy with a Bluetooth when I went to elementary school. I just saw the dude talking, I didn’t know who to; I just thought the guy was crazy or something. It is less of a problem now, but I say just because you don’t see too much of something happening, doesn’t mean it doesn’t still happen.

On that note, I end my first post.
