Just got severely beaten down in Tekken 3 on the Playstation. I would make some pathetic excuse about a lack of experience, but let's face facts: I have the reflexes of an arthritic tree sloth.

I do have to say the Tekken series are pretty much the best console fighters I've played since the days of Street Fighter 2 on the SNES, in terms of character balance and control. This one even comes close to making 3D elements a meaningful part of gameplay (though I think someone's going to have to come up with a radically different interface before these games really break out of the 2D mold).

Fall break is this week. Which means no lab tomorrow, and no classes Thursday and Friday... This is Good.
