Zen and the Art of Rag Doll Kung Fu

I have reached a zen-like state in my playing of Rag Doll Kung Fu, where I no longer think about my moment-to-moment moves. I have my overall strategies, and I have my instant thoughtless response to immediate stimuli.

I fly like the wind. I never did air combos before, but now I do, without even thinking about them. I begin to master the art of blocking.

My chi is strong.

While I know many people who have reached this state playing, say, Quake 3, I think it’s cool reaching a zen-like state while playing RDKF.

I had the privelidge of interviewing Mark Healy yesterday afternoon, he told about his play style he called “flying viper”. Eat mushrooms at any juncture where you find yourself standing in a patch, the pull of repeated flying combos followed by pull backs, like a viper. It seems from this post that this may be a dominant strategy.

He also mentioned putting up a world ranking as an online feature, you might just be a solid contender. I love Rag Doll, but I get too impatient and frenetic with the mouse, I suppose enlightenment eludes me.
