Marvelous Adventures episode #3, 'Scientific Method'

Posted by Jonathan 'Catalyst' Grey • March 10, 2011 at 11:07 a.m. PST
Here's what the Cross Counter crew had to say about episode #3.

In this episode, Gootecks shows us the dangers of trying out a new team online... WITH NO SENTINEL! Is he a brave fool? Is Sentinel a necessary evil... or merely a drug that Mike Ross keeps pushing??

Tip from DomDaDude, Christopher H., Virtua_Kazama and Shffl.

Victor Von Gooteks is such a brave fool. I applaud his learning to play with no Sentinel.

LEt the guy play whoever he wants.

Sentinel is boring as ****, i wont ever touch tht character

Wow. Mike Ross, could you possibly cry about Sentinel anymore? Gootecks wiped the floor with that guy using Wolverine/X-23, then he started dicking around or (as Gootecks said) lag kicked in a little bit and it ended up that Sentinel was the last man standing. Anyone else would realize that Gootecks had the game in the bag already, but in true "Salty Sentinel" fashion, Mike Ross is all like "SEE!? YOU PICK SENTINEL AND YOU WIN! YOU ONLY WON BECAUSE OF SENTINEL" even tough Wolvie did like 90% of the work on his own.

And Gootecks is right about 1/3 of the cast being great against Sent. Look, I'm not going to deny that Sent is really strong. He's quite possibly the best character in the game, but all of this talk about him being overpowered and impossible to win against is nothing but garbage. It was a knee-jerk reaction because the game was new, but now people are finding out anti-sent strategies, and like Gootecks said, he might not be the best for long. I can't believe Mike Ross is hopping on the train along with the rest of the scrubs who cry and moan about Sentinel being unstoppable and how you need to use him to be good. Very disappointing to hear that scrub-talk from him.

^failed to sense humor

/\ Almost right but I think Mike Ross was making a joke. I don't mean to be nitpicky, but it's hard to take you seriously when you take something so literally. No offense or anything, but I wouldn't compare him to a scrub on any terms.

cloudstrife360 said on March 10, 2011 at 12:04 p.m.

Or and that's at @4 btw, 5 beat me to it haha

jdigitalseven said on March 10, 2011 at 12:12 p.m.

GooCASH needs to get a real job. How is it that most of th top players have real jobs and yet he doesnt have to work....being decent at certain games?

mavfan619 said on March 10, 2011 at 12:12 p.m.

While # 4 did miss the point you'd be surprised at how salty people get if you win with Sent even on your team. I can run through a whole team with Mags and Dorm, and barely have Sent out and people say I won due to Sent. So I do understand the sentiment.

ado said on March 10, 2011 at 12:14 p.m.

LOL why do you care how he makes his living. noone should have to vindicate their lifestyles lmfao get off your pretentious high horse

Wolfeyes187 said on March 10, 2011 at 12:27 p.m.

Mike Ross needs to go back to his Ryu Storm Hulk. That was a decent team and if he sticks with it he can own. Gootecks might need sentinel as a handicap. I'm disappointed that Ross is falling back on sentinel though. If your going to replace him on your team don't do it with Thor...

Xamson said on March 10, 2011 at 12:54 p.m.

I liked Gootecks' shirt, and I agree with #1. F**k Sentinel, sure he's good but let the Goo-to the-ecks play who he wants. Be a man gord dammit!

A2ZOMG said on March 10, 2011 at 12:59 p.m.

Gootecks knows what's up. Mike Ross be mad that he's not good without Sentinel.

This game just needs more time. Once people learn to block effectively, Sentinel isn't going to be nearly as scary.

Super_Shoto_Fighter_4 said on March 10, 2011 at 1:31 p.m.

You can win without sentinel. I use to feel sorry the robot in part 2 but now i just want him dead. Hulk and Sentinel in the same team is uber cheap. Basically 1 combo from each will kill 2 characters. I've just come offline from playing a Sent/Hulk team and there is enough salt in my body right now to feed the planet.

Note to Gootecks: use whoever the F*** you want.

SrAbuguet said on March 10, 2011 at 1:31 p.m.

I was reading all your comments and this idea came to my mind... If theres so much trouble about the top tiers in the game, like sentinel; because lets face it, even Gootecks without being any good in the game, knowing just the standard bread & butter, is able to win in seeminly difficult situations... the thing is, Capcom should restrict the balance with a game system like the on in CVS... forcin the sinergy and all that cool stuff that could make this game very very strategic

Ex_Ein said on March 10, 2011 at 1:43 p.m.

Love how mike almost bugged out at the end there right as it timed out

A2ZOMG said on March 10, 2011 at 2:12 p.m.

See, the thing about getting killed in 1 combo is that basically everyone is capable of doing it to everyone. It's just easiest to do with Sentinel, assuming he catches you not blocking.

I don't see Sentinel as a broken threat. I mean...I suck. I play Arthur. And I'm far more worried about getting rushed down by Dante.

BlazinBlizzard said on March 10, 2011 at 2:22 p.m.

@#1 lmfao at the "Victor von Gootecks" comment! lmao

SHOGUN said on March 10, 2011 at 2:31 p.m.

I fear Dark Pheonix.

yafq8 said on March 10, 2011 at 2:39 p.m.

u guys should understand that the cheap part of sentinel isnt sentinel himself its his assist its so good so even if ur sentinel isnt out i bet that u used his assist like 20 times thats why people say u won cuz of sentinel

xShonuffx said on March 10, 2011 at 3:28 p.m.

Everybody so uppity about Sentinel. Yeah he's cheap but people should be worried about high level Wesker, that guy is too much and dangerous in the hands of noobs and Pros. Samurai Edge does too much block stun.

Kirbyfan66 said on March 10, 2011 at 3:29 p.m.

I do like watching Gootecks' Dormammu. If he keeps using him, he can do some nasty stuff with him.

And while I agree that people shouldn't take Mike Ross' Sentinel jokes too seriously, it is kinda annoying to hear people complain about him. I side with Gootecks.

chunlishusband said on March 10, 2011 at 3:46 p.m.

That GooTeck has a serious point. Play without sentinel gets you very fustrated against sentinel users. Sentinel is for people that are limited to learn more about the game. Easy as that. Marvel 2 still lives in marvel 3 with that robot sentinel in. Win without sentinel it's an auto applause. Win with Sentinel in it. *Steals Spiderman taunt* "Dude you suck!!!!"

terror said on March 10, 2011 at 3:49 p.m.

a lot of salty non-sentinel users in here

Gameplan said on March 10, 2011 at 3:49 p.m.

#20 Yep, Sentinel assist is one of the best and most annoying in the game.

Maryokutai said on March 10, 2011 at 4:02 p.m.

Wow, I really am bad. I main She-Hulk and I completely get destroyed by Sentinels on a regular basis despite Gootecks saying she’s one of his worst matchups. So not my game, this MvC.

crispylinks77 said on March 10, 2011 at 5:08 p.m.

I think everyone should use Dante/Wesker/Sentinel ;)

crispylinks77 said on March 10, 2011 at 5:18 p.m.

@ 20

Yup dealing with his assist is the worst part about him. I like to just snap him in cause I'd rather face him then see his drone the whole match.

kenmastersnumberonefan said on March 10, 2011 at 5:26 p.m.

It would be Mike Ross being a tier whore like he usually is.

Oroku_Saki said on March 10, 2011 at 6:33 p.m.

Is Mike Ross really a tier whore¿ Please explain this to me.

Gorav said on March 10, 2011 at 6:58 p.m.

@30 is top tier and so is mike ross' mvc team. 29 just thinks he knew they were top tier and picked based on that.
and of course most people used top tier in MvC2 as well so really he is
You say he isnt either because you are gay for him youre his best friend and know forsure he isnt or the game producer and know which character is top tier.
I'd say its safe to assume he is a tier whore.

I think gootecks should trade his X-23 no synergy envolved there good episode though

joskun said on March 10, 2011 at 8:10 p.m.

Most of this makes perfect sense. The game was new and people were bitching about sentinal, now we have strategies against him plus a good amount of the cast can shut him down. But what you guys have to also understand is that even if sentinal is useless as a character in the long run people will still use him as a way to chip w/xfc and also for his godly drone assist.

MadnessFamilyguile said on March 10, 2011 at 8:17 p.m.

People crying about HONDA being top tier need to get slapped.Sentinel isn't even the problem, it's the SETTINGS that are the problem. Last night they must have had the settings on lowest damage, but sentinel did NOTHING but get passed around.

Online however, the settings work with him because damage is so high and the time is so low.

Raven said on March 10, 2011 at 8:49 p.m.

Justin Wong's She-Hulk makes Sentinel look like a little girl. lol

JIHADJOE said on March 10, 2011 at 10:10 p.m.

I'm not sure why the story about the Machinima event was taken down, but in the interviews Jwong got asked how he got so good.

He said at first he was like 'OMG Sentinel is so cheap', but then he realized being whiny wasn't doing him any favors, so he completely changed his attitude about the game and went at it from a different approach. Basically going in and learning, instead of being a tier whore/whiner.

Way to put all the sentinel bitchers on blast.

JIHADJOE said on March 10, 2011 at 10:11 p.m.

Oh, and him owning Clockwork while using all random teams, and intentional bad picks = gold!

genesiskhan said on March 11, 2011 at 5:53 a.m.

f@#$ ur live if u really have to use that stupid robot to win i swear if sentinel is not on the team im killin but fifty fifty if hes there its not fair but fun to work through cause when u do the teabags ah comin lol

genesiskhan said on March 11, 2011 at 5:56 a.m.

the way some of u talk man pathetic mostly to post like #1 u suck dude applaud cause he learned to use a team without sent u know me and all my friends didnt even touch him in the begining i only use task wolvie and felicia if i get desperate ill use akuma but thats it

CharlieKenSon said on March 11, 2011 at 6:52 a.m.

To be honest, Sentinel and maybe phoenix are the top of cheapness. I tried sentinel once in mvc2 and once in mvc3 just to see.. and he's so powerful and his input is so simple. However, just as gooteck said. When you reach a certain level, sentinel isnt that krazy. Especially in mvc3. Patience is key. With another zoner like dorm, arthur, trish with sentinel maybe cause even more frustration. But believe me, there's always a way. Personally, I didnt feel like a winner with top tier like sentinel or vanilla sagat or whatever. in mvc2 when I infinite ppl with my magneto. Felt like i was in training mode. So boring... Have fun ppl.

CharlieKenSon said on March 11, 2011 at 6:58 a.m.

Who really went into mvc series and said... "Ou I cant wait to play with sentinel. Ou, sentinel looks so kool." Or even tron. Maybe a good 1% of all ppl. They just want to take the easy route instead of taking a few losses to improve yourself with the characters you actually like. LoL. Doesnt matter, I can tell a good player from a scrub sentinel bandwagon one. Easy work. :)
