i can never beat him when i'm not him
I don't come across many great sagats tbh
are there a lot of sagats on live?
the tier thing is like, how good they are mathematically compared to the others basically. In an ideal world they'd all be the same tier but some characters really are a bit better than others.
If you've got a character who can cope with his fireballs somehow (Balrog's turning punch and headbutt, Blanka's EX ball, Sakura's EX jump-hit thing, Abel's roll and ultra, etc) then you should totally exploit those and play a ground game. If not it's just a case of pressuring him; if you're at midscreen range then you can work on jumping his fireballs and punishing him. Losts of Sagat players will panic and start throwing out knees and uppercuts if you sneak in past their fireballs (because Sagat's pokes are his only weakness), so that's the way to think.
but you should go and fight loadsa grime kids over at grimeforum they are always talkin about it. Ryu was always better than Ken though yeah. Ken just looks like kurt cobain in fuckin pj's.
perfect gaming music for ya
even the main prime time DJ logan sama goes on about it on his kiss fm radio show.
I sware we didnt have Akuma when I was a kid on my SNES when did he appear!
not sure when he was first introduced! he's basically ryu and ken except more badass and shit
I love it. When they stand there trying to do their raging demon ultra and shit, and you're all 'awwww. Come on. You can do it.' And then you jump back from it and kick them in the face. Yours was beastly last time I played you though.
I've settled on Balrog as my main at the moment but I'm getting a bit bored of him..
I never see that many akumas, probably cos I pick him first. So many kens though, I'm starting to hate him!! Oh man, the balrogs online are usually really good, I bet yours is a raging beast.
I get fucking loads :O
I found that I was getting a lot of shit from people with 1-2k BP scores. Now that I've gone up a little bit higher I'm getting matched with more chilled out people I think; I'm getting more nice messages than I am nasty ones.
Pretty horrible getting a shitty message though. Puts me off playing a bit.
"looser" after I just beat him. I never usually reply but the severity of his beating annoyed me that he would send that LOL so I sent back "you lost. because you're shit." and then he challenged me to a match and I beat him. Then he sent me a voice message in the most stereotypical nerd voice you can imagine saying "can you do anything except hadouken? I mean...that is like really lame..." and I sent back "ROFL. Counter it then, bad loser"
if I'm being predictable, then why can't you beat me? Controlling space with fireballs is a big part of the game.
I'm partial to replying with 'go home and be a family man' when people send me shit.
exactly, as far as I'm concerned, there's no such thing as spamming in street fighter. If someone's doing something repetitively then it should be even easier to beat them! THAT'S SPAMMING MAN, CHEAP!!11
hovering around 3000 for a while now. When I switch off Balrog I'm expecting to plummet waaay back down..
he's (Balrog) really high tier. It's true; you can totally shut people down with him, and he's got an easy ultra setup. I think I'm going to switch to Abel or Rufus soon. Although Ryu is fun in this; you can do loads of crazy stuff that leads into his EX or super fireballs..
The annoying thing about the Kens is that they're starting to get a bit better. Where at the start they'd be all SHORYUKEN, over and over, now they're starting to bait into throws and stuff..
with the default constume. Oh man, your Abel is invincible.
But you can throw Abel out of his roll at certain points. People have totally broken my Abel just by doing random throws when they think I'm going to roll.
I'm a one-trick pony with him!
I'll keep this in mind ;)
except for evil ryu, he > everything ever.
Blanka players. Fucking Blanka. I hate you Blanka. I hate your little green face when you walk backwards. I hate that I am shit with you, but that I can never, ever win a match against you.
Fuck you, Blanka. I hope Zangief and T. Hawk ream you in your green sex hole.
SO MUCH. FUCK you Blanka, FUCK you. I think out of the 20 or so times I've played a Blanka, I've won like 3 times.
A couple of things:
Blanka players love to be dicks at the start of the round. You'll probably get either a slide, a ball, or arc ball, so prepare for it. (Or, worst of all, jab ball -> throw/electricity. cunts.)
If you have a character who can rapid jab, you can STUFF HIS BALLS. Low jabs will beat them (both normal and EX).
Never fireball if he has EX meter.
His arcing ball is lethal when it hits as crossover. You have to either move under it or hit him out of it.
If you get a Blanka who jumps around over your prone body then he's probably going to go for a throw mixup (will keep you guessing as to whether he's going to hit or throw you). You can get around it by using option select (no idea why it's called this): hold down back and away from him, and mash lp&lk. If he throws you'll escape it; if not, you'll jab him.
In summary: blanka is a cunt.
P.S. have you seen these?
but when I saw the words MAHVEL BAYBEE I realised what was coming. I am going to watch them again the second I get home. They are brilliant.
this shit wont let me rest
Me and Balrog really do not get along at all.
He's got some pretty easy trickery if you're looking to learn him. If playing against him, there are a couple of ways to stuff him; one is to remember that his arms are like Dhalsim's, and that if he's punching you with the tip of his fist you can stuff him with reversal attacks (like dragon punches)..
I tend to just get pounded into the ground by a mass of fireballs. I just don't have the patience I think.
Learn the timing on how his headbutt and turning punch go through fireballs. If someone gets a bit fireball-happy, they'll give up on this tactic the second you mess them up with a turning punch (you can charge it with 3 punches and still attack with kicks, or vice versa). Either that, or you need to always be charging down for the headbutt.
I've got some Street Fighter games for the PS2 though, although I never brought my PS2 up.
Still, Vega is the best.
though viper and akuma are fucking excellent. i can't go any of chun li's ultras though.
my mate like m bison. until i learned his ultras ha
I hope the updates include game lobbies like in HD remix. Then we can get a proper droundedinsawnded session on.
when do the updates come out?
but the word now is they're gonna bundle it in with some paid content at some point. Capcom are still trying to make more money than ever before this year to make up for last years massive drop in profits.
There's some kind of announcement coming in the next week about 'two big things.' I'm assuming that these are either the patch, more paid content, or the PC version..
I started well online, switching between Honda and Balrog (dunno why, I was never partial to charge characters before) then I had a complete mental collapse. I've been beating by people who've clearly never played Street Fighter before. Any one trick pony who just learned how to dragon punch can take me apart without too much trouble. I lost about 20 fights in a row on Sunday. It's embarrassing. It's like a mental block, a sudden bout of Street Fighting impotence I just can't get past.
or Rise of the Robots.
Or Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Tournament Fighter. Although.. actually, that was quite good now that I think about it.
although can't get a Model 2 simulator to work.
I desperately wanted to play Virtua Cop but now seem to just play Knights of the Round and the second D and D game.
the D&D games were a special treat. Not very common in arcades, so whenever I found one I'd be on it like a fly on shit.
Knights of the round had amazing sound effects. I imagine that is really what it sounds like to hit a man in armour with a sword
Now there was a shit fighting game. ALthough there was also Fatal Fury which was alright. I played one or two of the King of the Fighters series which were pretty good.
And kinda unites everyone from the afformentioned games!
for KoF XII? It looks beautiful. properly beautiful.
on Amiga with all its multiple disks and big exciting box and then it was truly arse. And yet many of the magazines amazingly gave it 80 or 90%+
And Killer Instinct is alright but no Street Fighter.
Haven't been playing online enough,
Was using a lot of Ryu and Blanka when I got it,
I think Sagat is a bitch to play against with someone who knows how to use him.
