I don’t enjoy playing Melty anymore. Every time I load up to netplay, I get pissed off.
I think I’ve blogged about this before somewhere. The same feelings of frustration and rage are boiling up again. I wish it was 2010 and 2011, that joyful period of learning a new fighting game from scratch.
There was a tweet from Christian (the pro wrestler) where he said “Don’t cry because it’s over. Be grateful because it happened.” He was referring to Daniel Bryan’s retirement from pro wrestling, but perhaps I could use his quote for the state of MB now.
I’m grateful to have enjoyed MB during its heyday here in the arcades. Now, it’s time to move on.
