KOF 13 Stream

It is Dec 12th 02:57 am. I have just got home from a night out and checking my emails I read that La Mythik has set up a ustream account and are going to stream this afternoon (that meant Dec 11th!). I log on to see if they kept any matches only to find that THEY ARE STILL PLAYING AND STREAMING!

@ La Mythik Right NOW


Edit: Obviously it’s over now but you can still see some replays at the channel. Frionel was present, I remember him performing some nasty King combo…

La Mythik is closing!!!

That wonderful arcade in Paris, France is closing down.

The owner, Hukuto Youssef, explained that the doors will shut for good by the end of November.

However, they will be moving to a new location, hinting it will be easier to find – which should mean closer to the centre of Paris…. let’s hope so! To finish off this era, on Saturday 27 and Sunday 28 November they’ll have their last tournaments on 4 games:

  • BlazBlue CS
  • Guilt Gear Accent Core
  • Hokuto No Ken

Will be interesting to see the development of the players since last we met.


Clan News: KOF XIII Tournament @ La Mythik

Every Match:

Playlist link if the above doesn’t work

Or if you wanted to skip straight to the finals:


Hokuto Yousseff had the advantage having had some good practice but Jeremie knows his KOF well, easily pulling out 2k2 style cancels.

The finals were best of 5. In the end, Yousseff’s Leona took the match with fantastic guard breaking and crossup combos. Congratulations/Felicitation/Omedetou!

Gunsmith and RORY were knocked out at the 1st round, having to face favourites Salim (Hey I didn’t totally throw it) and Tahar. Michels made it through to the 2nd round, only to face Jeremie and a Maxima that had been so far kept out of sight! Tactics!!!

Analysis: Gunsmith and RORY need to learn XIII combos. MichelS needs practice against Maxima. MichelS also needs to think about distance, safety and using stand A to counter Iori jump D spam. He should take valium, if it will stop him panicking in the corner. Being in the corner is not a bad thing. You just need to block until you’re ready to DP. The opponent will jump, poke, and then have to jump at you again or wait. As long as you have a good reaction speed, you’ll be okay. The thing with valium is that it makes you drowsy, so… maybe that’s not such a good idea XD

KOF XIII Weekend: Notes and Trip Photos

When you get to play XIII, you’ll face a few things:

Iori spamming jump D. Not unlike 98, you’ll need to have extremely fast reactions to anti air with a good standing A or other anti air such as Beni’s c B. I need to measure the block stun as there may be other ways…

K’ all over your face. Not sure what to do but it does seem like his qcf A is actually vulnerable to jump attacks.

Raiden’s drop kicks: you need to see if your opponent is holding the B button, because if so, they can’t roll, which means it’s time to pressure and throw. The biggest problem is once he gets charged up to a certain time, the drop kick is invincible!

Thanks again to Hokuto Youssef and the guys at La Mythik for looking after us and being helpful – they remember how I helped out with arranging matches in London, so it just shows that being nice does pay off!

All the videos are all going up on the ON channel as we speak, I’ll put up a playlist next post.

Here are our personal photos from the trip: Watch out for Michel’s riot of the blood and Gunsmith’s constant panic of not getting to the arcade on time!

If you’re thinking of visiting La Mythik, check out their website for directions etc.

Kof XIII weekend 2nd report





Imagine an arcade that has all the latest fighters, plus the classics. La Mythik has all of this, in Paris, France.

Imagine a free play session evening, where you can play anything there for the total price of 8. La Mythik also has this.

Imagine this session going on till 6 am, where they even have consoles set up for those rare fighters and pad players. Imagine megalo 50 cabinets, with HD TVs… versus city cabinets… yes, La Mythik has all this and even sells food and drink. It’s bloody awesome.

Imagine being entered into a XIII tournament, and your first opponent is a guy you’ve just been reporting on as one of the best…

Yes, that’s right I had to face Salim, having only started playing the game for the first time ever a few hours earlier! Argh.

Still, my 2nd impression of Kof XIII has been much more positive. I’ll post more about this tomorrow… I’m going back to La Mythik right now, having had three hours sleep… hehehe kof is on fire!
