I was all about Zappa, Anji, & Millia in XX series. Two out of the three aren't in Xrd and Millia feels different enough that I don't have the interest. That's okay though, I mainly liked GG for music/style at the time. Only animu game series I actually liked the play of is MB.

Turd Strike :aah

Third Strike is a 3d fighter in 2d fighter skin. At least, that's how it feels like. It completely betrays everything I like about Street Fighter. It's a good but, but I understand why it wasn't popular in the west until the Daigo parry and was even shunned by the tournament guys.

3S mega fans will always be the laughing stock of the SF fanbase. Always with the "what about 3S?!" schtick.

Garou is a much better reimagining of an iconic fighting franchise.

V won't be another 3 because of the existence of Dhalsim and Fang, whose play styles are completely incompatible with 3's barebones zoning. Say what you will about V, but at least it'll plays like a Street Fighter.  :jawalrus

well that is true. probably not surprising that sim and fang are the most interesting characters to me right now.

really wanting to use gief and mika too but i'm unsure how to get in during matches, that was one thing i never got good at during the beta matches even though i had a blast with them in practice.

From what I've seen and heard, the zoning game for shotos is pretty nerfed compared to SFIV. Tons of people have been bitching about the nerfs Ryu has gotten beta to beta, mainly having to do with viability as a character in general.

Good thing with SFV though is normals seem to do pretty good damage. Bad news is the range of normals has been described as stubby. I want to be positive about SFV, but at this point, with how each beta has been different than the last, its hard to get a definitive read on the game.

If it ends up being another SF3, not when it comes to design, but overall reaction, Capcom is sorta fucked for fighting games this gen. They fixed SF vs. Tekken pretty quickly, but people forgot about that game and people didn't forgive Capcom that quickly.

Most people have an issue with Ryu being boring more than anything. You can't even hit a  critical art on your opponent after ex tatu'ing them in the corner. :zzz A lot of characters have anti-fireball control but we should, if the game is good, find ways around that in the final release. The good thing is that there's no universal mechanic that allows everyone to evade fb's. Even Ryu's parry has a huge recovery window and can even whiff, unlike 3S.

Capcom has been far more subdued this gen compared to the previous one.

Last gen we got new IPs immediately like Dead Rising and Lost Planet. DMC4 came out two years and a few months after the Xbox 360 launched. A ton of shit from 2008-2012 came out.

Played a M bison dude in endless recently on SF4. I was playing as Guile, dude kept getting the same combo in, I got frustrated, lost four in a row. He has 19,000 matches played compared to my 4000. Got really frustrated that I was losing in a matchup so much in my favor (Guile versus M Bison is usually doom for Bison).

I switch to Blanka, he switches to Gen. Dude has 3000 pp, and 8000 bp for both Bison and Gen.

In this new set, I win three in a row, lose one, win the last match. 

Why am I cursed to be good with Blanka, a character that's hated for the gimmicks he has

As a Blanka player though, I depend on his normals for poking and countering what the other person does. I rarely depend on the gimmicks alone for the majority of my wins. Blanka is one of the most fun characters to gain match momentum. You're allowed to turn your brain off and be extremely mobile.

Wish it was backwards compatible with the 360. Might get the PS2 version soon, since I've only heard good things about CVS2.

Was hesitant due to only having a 360 arcade stick, but I realized recently I like playing on pad for everything but Street Fighter 4.

From this point on, I'm going to main T.Hawk in SF4. He does a lot of damage with his specials, has great mobility, and his down fierce command punch in the air snuffs out all sorts of ground shit while also being a excellent mixup tool.

He also fits the motto of being fun to play even if you lose.

That's one of the reasons I love him as a character, his normals are great at poking and he isn't a combo centric character. His fierce command normal in the air is a nasty mixup tool. If someone doesn't block the overhead, I get a easy combo and a lot of easy damage out if it. If they block it, I can command grab them, and the cycle repeats.

He's built around poking and snuffing out all movement or actions. He's a grappler that can control zoning and spacing from a distance.

The condor dive is a great mindfuck tool, both when it comes to punishing shit and completely changing the spacing of the fight. Moving around a player/character and not hitting them on purpose puts people on edge.

Mind games are the best thing about fighting games. Successfully fucking with the opponent's head, is the BEST. I love the conditioning element in the long game. My favorite is going in and using a long range normal after an fb for pressure and then when I see they're straight up turtling when I come into their space, I walk right up to them without a fireball or anything and just throw them. :lol

Fucking love it. Mental conditioning is the best.

Turns out I have the most fun and play at my best as Tony Hawk himself. Fell in love with grapplers at the end of SFIV's life, wish I stuck with grapplers sooner.




First match was pretty much a warm up. Both matches ended up playing out similarly, a lot of give or take with damage with the first rounds. Second rounds I had complete momentum and put the other player on tilt.

Definitely going to main Zangief, Birdie, or R. Mika for SFV.

think of it this way. SFIV didn't have much time for you to get warmed up with anyways. think of it as a practice run for sfv to see what your preferences are.

I prefer footsies based character with great normals and zoners, which usually means charge characters like chun or fast characters like cammy or hybrids like nash. learning that info in valuable in prepping for sfv.

Very true.

It also comes down to finding a playstyle that ends up being fun, even if the outcome of a match isn't in your favor. I'll never want to dedicate a lot of time with combos. I'll always value good pokes, and high damage that gets rewarded due to patience and/or risk. T. Hawk has very simple combos and mixups but the damage is incredibly high. I found out I value those attributes the most. 

Finding a groove with how command grabs work and when you should use them made also me appreciate grapple characters a lot more.

It also means less time wasting when sfv drops. I love the beta for the fact I already have an idea who I'm gonna be playing by picking characters who use the aforementioned styles. I also fucking LOVE how they're giving the characters even more of their uniqueness this time. Feels inspired by MOBAs. Feels like SFV is all about the characters and not fucking OS systems like IV.

I want to learn Chun, Cammy Nash, Dhalsim, Ryu, Birdie, and Fang. I have no idea what people mean when they say SFV has boring characters so far because I'm interested in SO MANY.

To add to this:

"I can't counter heavy or medium jump in kicks with a level 2/3 focus attack."

"My boring and long as fuck block strings don't exist anymore! I have to use normals to bait out attacks now?!"

While the range of attacks or normals in SFV is a worrisome thing, the vast majority of players online for SFIV rarely use normals for pokes or for damage.

I know many trans people accepted, from Ricki, from people who KNOW Ricki, to many other trans and gay folks in the FGC.
