Anyone here for a spot of fighting games?

There's Dragonball FighterZ and Blade Strangers for 2d fighter. For 3D gameplay, there's Tekken 7 and Soul Calibur 6. Let's play!

If you like fighting games you should download fightcade. Super Turbo and 3rd strike are the most popular on there.

Hyped for samsho. Kinda on the fence about MK11, waiting to see Noob Saibot. Right now I mostly play Soul Calibur 6. Depsite it being the most hated game around I actually like SF5 and come back to it every now and then.

Well, yeah I wanna go on a date with Akira. Akira Kazama is the purest, most badass Character in all video games. Her and a group of delinquents joins the school in search of her brother, and isn’t afraid to use force to find him, and that skull motorcycle Helmet is pretty fucking cool. Once she takes off her Helmet though, she’s just a sweet Imouto, looking out for her onee-San. First time you fight her is memorable too. At school, after all the students have left, out in the baseball field at sunset. If you manage to hold your ground, she opens up to you.
Oh man I really want a new Rival School game.

So cmon, we're all adults here. Saying you want to go on an actual date with a video game girl(no matter how bad ass she is) is childish. I love dating sims too, but I don't actually love the fictional characters. Whats better Four? Real or 2d/3d women?

>SFV vs ST/A2
Successful jump-in


Successful anti-air


(And this is one of the highest reward meterless AA options in the game)


The big difference is that in older games, jumps had a wider arc with a slower fall, and they had WAY less hit stun at the peak. So if you hit a peak jump RH in say ST, Alpha 2/3, CvS2 or 3rd Strike, you're not going to get a combo 90% of the time (outside of stupidly fast 2f moves like shippu). In SF5, you're more or less guaranteed a massive combo as long as you hit with any kind of fierce jump-in.

Increased hit stun + the faster falling animation changes things a lot.

In older games, it was like one consistent falling arc. In SF4 and SF5, you go less far forward, but you come down much faster. If you look at something like Blanka's jump in ST, it's basically like everyone has that jump arc now. Also, notice how he doesn't have enough hit stun to combo here, whereas he definitely would in SF5. So in the old games, the risk/reward ratio was basically almost even. A single hit for a single hit. The only way you'd eat a full combo is if you really fucked up and ate a deep jump-in.

Now, if you get an anti-air successfully, you get maybe 60-80 damage on average with most characters -- whereas, if you get a successful jump-in, it can easily be 200+ damage. This makes playing mid-range footsies way way more risky than in previous games, and is another reason why it's safer to play at close range where you're well past their jump arc.

So I finally fetched down FightCade and a 3rd Strike ROM after hearing about it for years. I've never actually played any fighting games before, but I like skill based games with other people so I figured I might be missing out if I never tried.

But to the point... Can you train against AI before fighting real people? I mean I've no idea at all how to do anything. I'd just make a complete fool out of myself.

Unless you want to be a pro, practicing against the AI is fine in most fighters.

Step 1: learn your moves. 3rd strike has buttons that work differently depending on how far the opponent is.
Whether for fun or serious, that's a necessary first step.

Yeah no I just couldn't figure out how to launch a solo game in fightcade, figured it out now. Thought you had to accept/issue a challenge to play at all.
Lol, yeah now when I just had my first go that was the only way to react in time. Goddamn the game is fast. Makes your brain feel like sludge. But I do actually want to play for real.
Yeah, I'm gonna try to find some kind of practice mode thingy or something, cause I don't even have time to think against the AI. Maybe might not be the best idea to use a SNES gamepad either, heh.

If somebody else with no experience in EU wanna have a go it'd be fun to start out and practice together!

You said fightcade with rom, right? Press 2P, select any character & have dummy to beat up. It's not like you got to consider your credits. Also fightcade has the option to save states. *Hint*

Also changed over to KB in stick config (wasd + numpad) instead of SNES controller, works much better and intuitively. Time to git gud.

Keyboards with the right switches (blue cherry hysteresis is bad) are essentially hitbox controllers out of the box.

ASD-Space and numpad is much better than WASD btw. The only reason it's not as good as a Hitbox is you can't hit jump with both of your thumbs.

You can if you bind jump a second time to numpad 0

Its all about licencing. So I predict no more. Marvel seems to be getting their characters back for video games but im sure the realtionships still rocky
In a better timeline we got a new Street Fighter vs X-Men coming out.

I dont mind it because Vega is a dumb name for dictator. But then again Balrog is a dumb name for boxer.

It's even stranger because Alpha takes place between the first game and SFII, so it's not actually "Street Fighter Zero" or a prequel to the series. "Street Fighter Gaiden" would have made more sense. Nippon gonna Nippon I guess.

Fan-made film says that's he choose BALROG as a nickname/title. Although Vega is a spanish name... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iOxXFflttyg

Gaiden is a Japanese-language word meaning "side story" or "tale", used to refer to an anecdote or supplementary biography of a person. SF Gaiden would have been a better name...

SFA3 - Flashy Mechanics by Shoryubarbie

Just a quick video having fun with Guard Crushes, Alpha Counters and Push Blocks (Dan and Juni only) in Streetfighter Alpha 3. Check below for transcript.

0:06 Dan's pushblock is powerful enough to stop Bison's Lvl3 Psycho Crusher, which can travel across the entire stage. He can pushblock high, low and in the air.

0:10 A-Ism Cody's Alpha Counter "Shoulder Throw", causes hitsparks on both him and his opponent, even if the attack completely whiffs. The hitspark on the opponent will travel with them and even turn around when they do. (You can see the hit spark on Dhalsim flip horizontally when he appears from his teleport)

0:18 Pushblocking an opponent in the corner doesn't cause Dan to be pushed away, rather he stays in place, allowing him to block Zangief's Spinning Lariat several times in mid air. A push block can be followed up by any action in mid air, like activating CC.

0:22 Adon recovers quickly enough to perform two Alpha Counters in a row.

0:27 A push block can still be followed by an Alpha Counter.

0:34 You can still Alpha Counter after a Guard Crush. Gen dizzies Ken with the countdown of his Lvl2 Shitenshuu while Ken Guard Crushes him with a headbutt. The Guard Crush lasts just long enough for Gen to still connect with his Alpha Counter.

0:39 By using the watermelons from Blanka's Lvl1 Tropical Hazard, Blanka and Dhalsim are able to Guard Crush each other almost simultaneously.

0:43 Dan's Lvl3 Hisshou Buraiken lasts long enough for R.Mika to get Guard Crushed and hit him with an Alpha Counter while he's still in the middle of it.
