Usagi's School of Hard Knocks!

Our wonderful Shateigashira, Miyamoto Usagi, has come to the conclusion that it is time that we guppies break away from the chains of suckyness and rise to our place as champions of the online fighting community! Thus, Evil Guppy [GPY] is proud to open the doors to Usagi's School of Hard Knocks! At this prestigious school, Sensei Usagi will help teach us the various facets of fighting games to help better our abilities and the quality of our fighting game GPY events. Usagi's classes will function like our traditional GPY events but instead of battles and buttons, it will be a place to learn, practice, and hone our fighting skills! But before we can officially attend Usagi's School of Hard Knocks, we first need to select a fighting game to focus on. The officers have selected six fighting titles to focus on and we hope to reduce them down to one or two with your help.

Darkstalkers Resurrection - For $14.99 you can get Darkstalkers Resurrection and Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo HD Remix (Not to be confused with Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix) via the PlayStation Store.

Fighting Vipers - Only $4.99 on the PSN Store.

JoJo's Bizarre Adventure (HD Ver.) - $19.99 on the PSN Store.

Marvel vs. Capcom Origins - for $14.99, you can get digital copies for both Marvel Super Heroes and Marvel vs. Capcom.

Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix - $9.99 on the PSN Store.

Virtua Fighter 5 Final Showdown - It was previously free for PlayStation Plus members and can be purchased digitally for $14.99 or with all the DLC for $29.99.

There are two surveys below. The first asks "What fighting games do you own", you can select as many as apply. The second survey asks "which fighting games do you want to play", here you can select your top choices. Feel free to select multiple choices but please try to keep it to your top contenders. After the votes have been tallied we will pick the top game (or maybe two depending on feedback) and then hold our first class. Tardiness is unacceptable and liability waivers must be signed by a parent or guardian! And don't forget your homework! Check out the YouTube series First Attack for some great tips. Now go vote before sensei Usagi smacks you with a ruler!


  1. I want to stress how important it is that any interested participants really need to watch First Attack. I don't want to spend all the time it would take to teach everyone from scratch by myself. It would be too time consuming for GPY events. I need people to come to these events and ask questions about what they've watched and about things as we are playing. I can help, but I'm not an expert.

  2. The fighting games I have in mind aren't listed here. But, I'd go with Guilty Gear X2 Reload (PC/PS2), Guilty Gear Isuka (PC/arcade, and Street Fighter Alpha 2 (PC/arcade/PS1/PSN/SNES).

    1. We're specifically selecting games available for PS3 that have online play because that is the platform we play on together.
