Warmed up the fighting-game muscle-memory yesterday by doing Arcade Mode in Xrd a few times; by the end I successfully made it to the point where the AI difficulty stayed on Normal. I expect this to transition smoothly into my utterly demolishing Strive (PC)'s online modes

I tried Mission Mode to start learning fundamentals; it was helpful in finding out that while at this point I can pull off basic quarter-circle/Z-inputs in my sleep, if my brain is focused on hit-confirming into those moves my hand instantly forgets how to do the motions


None of this is meant to be negative against myself or the game, of course! I'll lose all day and night, I don't mind in the slightest; in the end I'm still pressing buttons while cool stuff happens onscreen (to me, usually)
