Nightstar - I used to love it when that happened in endless mode!
I used to tear up double perfects with my 5BP Hawk Tongue

I let my XBL membership fade after all of the security issues though, so I only play offline now Sad

Yes that 5% consumption tax in Japan must be a REEEAAALLLL burden.  Cheesy Try 25% like we have it here Wink

Sure money comes around and goes around... but it makes it hard for a merchant business to compete with individuals or those that are less serious... And it encourages cheating, obviously, since few business happily pay 25% for every nickel if they find a way to get away with it.  Cheesy Technically I couldn't even give people stuff for free without paying 25% of the estimated value to taxes  Cry It sucks to have a small business here.... IMO, it's necessary to find the best way to avoid accounting and not getting caught...

Much respect, Hawk is a character who requires much knowledge of matchups. I currently have 12,000 BP with Hawk, 11,000 BP with Honda, 5,000 with Blanka. (Yeah, I know, I play way too much  Gamer )

Ah well, offline play is vastly superior anyway. Hopefully you get another membership in the future, so we can have some lagfest bouts.

I don't like getting mad or making other people mad so I only play multiplayer fighting games with people who take it seriously but also just want to have fun.

I actually did find a few, but yeah they're very few and far in between.  One's coming over for my next birthday just so him and I can whore out my sf2 rainbow edition pcb in 2 player mode (as well as my collection of other arcade fighting game pcbs and the rest of my mad collection of awesome)

This is what YouTube is for Smiley     wish I could've seen that!     I had a friend that I used to play MVC1 with and we'd laugh at Spidey's taunts, pretty bad.

How about education and medical support? Do you have to pay for it?
Maybe you want to prove a point, but to answer: no, it's free, including university. That is nice.  Cheesy

Sounds like you living in the Heaven. Ask manuel, how much cost these things here. IMO the problem is not to pay the tax, the problem where is that money going.

I can only second that. I wouldn't mind so much paying (higher) taxes if the money was at least used properly...

The fourth gasoline price hike in 4 weeks.  Angry
From 137 Yen to 154 Yen per liter in 1 month. If that goes on we'll pay 350 Yen by the end of the year...  Crazy
