How did you come across 3S?

Son of a GlitchSon of a Glitch Joined: Posts: 204
Just wondering. Alot of people like myself came across this game by "accident".

Back in winter 2000, I was shopping for a good DC game and picked this game up. I gave up SF altogether after Alpha 2, so I missed all the good stuff starting from Alpha 3 :sad: I saw 3S and was like "hey, I remember SF." After experimenting with it, I was definitely hooked and never put it down since....

    I remember renting 2nd Impact on Dreamcast. I liked it a lot. Then a couple years later SFAC came out on PS2 and I decided to pick it up. I instantly got hooked on 3S when my cousin taught me a lot of cool shit. Like everyone else, I'm still hooked on it lol.

    I started with 2nd Impact in a mall arcade in 1998 (I was 11). I would always play it by myself because no one else would. Seemed like everyone was more into A3 and EX2. I later found Newgen in the mall closest to my house and just played 1p mode whenever I could. I only used SA1/2 Ryu. By the time 3S came out, I stopped playing SFIII and didn't go to arcades anymore.

    Eventually I got DI and 3S on DC in the weeks of their release. I don't even know why, because I still only played it by myself anyway. About 2 years ago I found out about the arcade scene for 3S in a Chinese mall and around that time I started getting serious about the game.

    I was introduced to 3S visiting a friend in the summer of 03. I picked it up for Dreamcast but didn't start playing seriously until SFAC came out.

    For me, it was the beginning of last Fall. I just entered college and I was getting to know where everything was. I found the arcade and decided to look around. I noticed a lot of people crowded around an arcade, which was 3S. I haven't played a Street Fighter game since A2 and I thought that the fighting looked so smooth and fluid. I was amazed so I thought I'd give it a try. I got to play against someone that was familiar with the game, but he wasn't that good. I won with Ken (didn't know he was top tier) and someone else played as Ryu against me. Not knowing much about the game, my moves got parried easily and he finished me with a Shin Shoryuken. After that I went on the internet to learn about the game and picked up a copy of SFAC for the PS2. Now I'm addicted to this game :looney:

    a friend of my brother's came into town and they were both big on SF as well, we had DC already and they went out and bought SF3 Double Impact. We played it and were like, what crap! I kept trying it every now & then and got my bro into it. It took us a while, but then 2I became our favorite. Then I heard about 3S but it couldn't be found but I found at a Gamestop that's like 5 hours away from my house. Picked up as a X-mas present for my bro and the same year he got me Evo 02 for x-mas, lol perfect timing heh? Then later we got it for PS2, since it's arcade perfect. But we were waitin on it for XBL, so my bro said fuck it and got the import off the net and got it liek 6 months or some shit in advance of the US release date lol

    Last year around this time I saw this awsome Oro player who now I think about played like a Japanese player. The Oro player's sexy combos inspired me to play 3s and try to do those same sexy combos. Before 3s I didn't play much SF at all, I stopped playing completely after 1 year CVS2 came out, but this Oro dude was just so good I had to pick the game up to be like him!!

    I got 3s for about 15 bucks at toysRus. my first thought was "hey, I loved SF2! I didnt even know they made a sf3" I was a massive newbie at the time. a few days after I took it to my friends birthday party and we played about 2 rounds. we had no idea what we were doing and we all quickly agreed that it was a piece of crap (I was 13-ish) a few months later I got an arcade stick and I mostly played mvc2 on it and I thought "I should give 3s another chance,its probably better with the stick" and it changed my life forever. easily the best fighting game Ive ever played. with SF2 and Garou close behind.

    I knew it existed, but the game just felt wierd since 2I was my love. Saw a bunch of high school kids play it, so, I played it too for the DC. Fanboy-ism tdrew me to it since I wanted to see Ryu do something else "cool". The Daigo/Wong match was the fury.

    ...that went well.

    I saw it when I was playing Initial D, back in 2003...it had a crowd nearby it. I didn't like 3S at first (I preferred CVS2) but as I played it more I got used to it.

    And then I saw that my college had it (go Moorpark). And then they announced the Anniversary Collection release. And ever since, I've been playing 3rd Strike.

    I saw a pic in Edge (a console & arcade gaming mag) that showed pics of 2nd Impact, with the caption saying "Capcom's 2nd update to their Street Fighter 3 franchise". I was left thinking "2nd ?, I didnt even know there was a 1st ?" :sad: .

    Anways, a year later and I got a DC & the DC port, then of course when the DC was hacked I was able to get the Jap version of 3rd Strike the minute it hit the net.

    I've been playing SF since it came out for the SNES, but I never went to an arcade unless my family and I were staying in a hotel that had a mini-arcade, you know like in Vegas or something. When I went off to undergrad, my school had an arcade but I didn't spend any time there the first year. Second year I went in and was like, whoa, they made a Super Street Fighter II TURBO?? Cause I'd only ever seen the SNES SSF2. I started playing it often, got into it, only problem was that very few other people played it. The arcade also had Third Strike, and as I grew bored playing the ST cpu over and over, I started playing Third Strike. I just messed around with it for the first half a year, but then got serious a couple years ago. Turned out, I couldn't have been luckier in the arcade situation; my school's arcade, the Bearcade, was one of the premier Northern California arcades, and it attracted lots of big names, from Choi to Ricky, and my hometown is 10 minutes from Interface and 25 minutes from Family Fun Arcade. I've been fortunate enough to have played against most of the best Third Strike players on both coasts. I'm glad I picked the game up.

    Although I still wish people would play Super Turbo more often.

    Great story.


    I got into 3s because about a two years ago, I started paying attention to a crowd that was always gathered around the 3s machine (in my local arcade) whenever I went. I went to the arcade a lot because I had just got really into DDR (this was a little bit before Anniversary Collection came out). So from my childhood memories (SF II and the srk's, hadoukens, & tatsumakis) I thought I would at least give it a try to see what all the hype was about. These were grown-ass men playing street fighter, and I didn't understand. So I played, got my ass kicked, thought it was a crappy rehashed version of SF II with that special thingy added on and never played again. When SF AC came out I decided to buy it anyways because I loved going back to my childhood days of SF II.... at that point I decided I'd get a little good at 3s so I could go beat those guys in the arcade, but it didn't happen for a while. It wasn't until I realized the quality and complexity of the game that I started playing at the arcade more, bought a stick, bought a guide and followed it to figure out some combos. Then I started beating them.... and I realized how good the game was, but I got bored. With no good competition in the area (or so I thought) I kinda stopped. Then in about the summer time (2005) people kept telling me about this arcade called FFA. I didn't realize that the best 3s comp. on the West Coast was almost in my backyard. So since then I've gotten back into it and now I'm starting to attend the FFA ranbats (and getting some rep. as a 3s player)..... and I'm loving it.

    Played it once in the arcade when it first came out and forgot about. Bought EVO2k2 for CVS2 and saw Tokido do a full corner unblockable on Justin (99%) damage in the 5v5 ex. Then i just waited patiently for AE.

    I remember seeing 3s at the UCLA arcade for the first time thinking it was a really nice looking game...I played it (picked Ryu) and it didnt make sense to me at all (my favorite games at the time was Alpha 2 and ST) so parries were really odd for me to do since I was used to holding back to block...then some random chun player came in and beat me badly...I didnt touch it til I moved to Granada Hills and I got a job working at an arcade called FFA...everything there was over priced when I started working there (MvC2 was 75 cent per game, 3s was 50 cents per game)...everyone in FFA played Alpha 2 like it was the best game in the world...only about 3 dudes would touch 3s...then I started hearing about a new player that came in one day...they said he was some bald headed mexican gangster lookin cholo dude that came in one night and started whoopin everyone's butt in 3s (all 3 dudes :lol: )... then one morning while working, I saw the bald headed dude beating the regulars again with Ryu SA 3...I've never seen any Ryu player pick SA3 til I saw this dude play...I went up and said hi, played him one game and I think I almost got double perfected...I was shocked to see Ryu move the way he used it and the way he would set up his SA3 supers on me...I asked for his name...he said his name was Frank (Frankie3s)...at the time CvS2 came out so it was the game everyone started to play...and for the first time ever, Evo2k2 was gonna be held in socal....I remember playing CvS2 a lot and driving down to the SHGL CvS2 weekly tournaments....I went to the SHGL pre-evo tourny to see the japanese cvs2 players...I saw how RC was getting abused, and I didnt like it very much...at Evo2k2 while everyone was in line to sign up, KSK and Mester brought over a 3s tournament video for the cannon bros. to play...they put it in the big screen for everyone to watch while we were in line to sign up...it was Shirube...it was the best 3s vid I've ever seen...After I saw that vid, I said to myself that I'd quit CvS2 after Evo2k2 and start playing 3s...since then, I manage to lower the prices at FFA and guys like Frankie, Vic, Pyro, Rockefeller, Gee-O, 5 Star, Adolfo & JR Rodrigues became regulars...3s became the hottest game there

    I go to ARC (American River College) and my friends told me we had a pretty decent arcade connected to the lunch room a while back. It's kind of shabby, 50 cent MvsC, SFA3, CvsSNK (my favorite game in there) and handful of other fighters. We have MvsC2 which everyone plays cause it's only 25 cents, but I've tried playing it and I just don't get it. To much going on for my taste.

    I've met a few people while hanging out in the arcade and this one guy and I started talking about videos for different fighting games. He told me about the Diago full parry video and as soon as I got home from school I checked it out. I was amazed. The fact that given enough practice someone could parry a full super really impressed me and since then I've been convinced 3S is one of the most technical fighters out there.

    Since then I've downloaded a lot of RanBats (I love the commentary) and have been reading a bunch of strats. Until recently I've only been able to troll 3S through vids and what not, but I went to San Diego and Portland for Spring Break and I was able to strack down some machines. I picked Ibuki (love the look and the fact that she is speedy, a common trait I always gravitate towards in any game) and had some great matches in San Diego whileI got rapped in Portland. Since I've gotten back I've been trying to track down good places to play in Sacramento but I haven't had any luck so far.

    The first time I ever played 3rd Strike was when it first came out for the Dreamcast. I saw it at the local video rental and decided to give it a shot. I didn't really think much of it, I thought it was "just another Street Fighter." I wasn't very amazed. Then years later Anniversary Collection came out. A couple friends of mine really got into it, so I gave it another try. This time I didn't think it was that bad. What really got me hyped about 3rd Strike was when I saw the Daigo full parry video. After I saw that video I realized that this game is golden. I've been hooked ever since.

    Ahh yes, the memories I had with SFIII-3rd Strike
    It was back when I was 11...that was 1999, at a local chinese fried chicken shop, they also had a few arcade machines. I bought a mash potato cup for 50 cents, and while waiting for my order, looked over and watched people huddled over Marvel Vs. Street Fighter, Metal Slug, Alpha 3. There were 2 arcades empty, Viper Phase 1 and.....drum roll.....3rd Strike. I watched the Viper demo for a little bit then went over to watch the demo on 3rd Strike: a silent jaw dropping scream...the coolest animation I ever seen...I saw some white dude tripping Ryu with a long ass purple leg (c.rh Necro), damn COOL!

    I never got to play it though, my family is rather poor, and my mom is absolutely against "wasting cash" on trivial stuff like arcade machines. 3 years later, I saw the same arcade machine when I went ice skating...still....didn't play it.

    2002-2006 The same image stuck in my head for years to come...some cool looking dude tripping Ryu... Damnit, now that I finally get my own cash, I can't find a damn arcade that still has it. One day I was browsing through gamespot, stumbled upon Anniversary Collection, watched a few vid clips and...AHH! NECRO!, needless to say the game was no where to be found for PS2 when I checked 5 stores, I had to buy it off ebay, but it was worth every cent. FINALLY, after all these years, the best looking 2D art, not to mention best fighting game engine ever made is in my hands!

    I've known the Chinatown Fair arcade for probably all my life but avoided it like the plague. It was full of gang members and the whole smell of cigarette smoke was too much for me, I was scared of getting beaten up or mugged, but after walking past it recently, I noticed it got "renovated", no more people smoking, and it looked quite welcoming: 2 Tekken 5 DR machines, 2 MvC2 machines, 2 3rd Strike machines, and a ton of other classic and old fighting game arcades like SSF2, KOF, SFIII:2I, MvC not to mention a few DDR machines. But the people who come here...they are insane, I've never seen such competition and skill, people on DDR machines at the craziest speed and difficulty. 11 year olds pulling off Genei-Jin juggle combos, damn. Gonna definitely try my luck at the machines after I hone my skills a bit more, and hopefully not get killed too badly.

    First time I encountered it was when I went to see "Road to El Dorado" in theaters with my brother. There were a buncha kids and teens lined up at the sticks and I decided I'd try my hand at it (I was 7 years old at the time). I remember picking Dudley and being blown away by how fast he moved across the screen and how hard he hit. I lost every match I played, only managing to win maybe 2 rounds out of all of the matches I played which was about 2 or 3 before we went to get our seats, but I thoroughly enjoyed the game regardless. It was love at first sight, but I didn't get my hands on my own copy until the "Street Fighter Anniversary Collection" for PS2.

    I was gonna say I've seen a few of these lately. Sadly I never discovered 3s until after 4 had already come out. Grew up on Samurai Showdown 2 and KOF 98 cause those were the only cabinets at the godfathers pizza I lived at. OE got me hooked though, and try though I might I can't stick with another game for long before I gravitate back.

    Before Super SFIV came out, I heard about this "Dudley" character and how people wanted him to be in the game. I told a friend of mine about SSFIV and about this character, and he said, "Oh, dude, he'd be an awesome character to have! He says stuff like 'gutter trash' in a boss British accent and tosses roses at people." At this point, I'm super curious, so I google "3rd strike dudley" or something like that, and I think this is the video I saw:



    And I was like...wow, this game looks awesome! I watched more match videos, got to know more of these strange SF characters that I never knew about before, and eventually got it on the PS2, and later 3S:OE on my Xbox 360.

    As far as art style and aesthetics go, I think this is one of the most unique games I've ever played, fighting game or otherwise. Yeah, Chun and Yun are broken, but who cares? Just parry everything and you'll be fine :P

    Chun is broken. Yun and Ken are merely OP. Why do people love to leave Ken out of the equation, I've fought way more good Kens.

    Yun and Chun-Li are always the first to stick out in my mind because Evo has always been won by either Yun or Chun-Li (or, in the case of one year, by both Yun and Chun-Li at the same time). I fully recognize that Ken is clearly in the Top 3 in 3S; it's just that, to me, he seems less OP than he actually is, so I mention him less.

    Back in like 2008 or 9 I saw a countdown of best fighting games and 3rd strike was number 1. At the time I didn't know fighting games except ssf2t but was pretty excited for sf4, and somehow it hadn't dawned on me that there was probably a 3rd one too. I tried it out on the nebula cps3 emu and it blew me away, but i didnt have a good controller and noone to play with so i forgot about it until like last year.

    I used to download videos of AOU shows that had the latest games. I still remember the trailer for 3S. I was in awe. I wish I could find that video to see if anythings different. The trailer mostly focused on the new characters. I think Twelves SAI carried people, and Q's EX slaps didn't have the yellow flash in the trailer, which played to a different version of the 3S Intro music.

    I was most impressed with the backgrounds, the new characters, and the animation for the super flash, I couldn't believe how good it all looked at the time.

    I think this was during the summer of 1999, Dreamcast was about to come out and I would always download any footage of Dreamcast games or arcade games I could find. I knew 3S would get ported. It came out in early or mid 2000 bought it first day. Between 3S, Crazy Taxi and Phantasy Star Online to name a few 2000 was a great year.

    Yeah, Chun and Yun are broken, but who cares? Just parry everything and you'll be fine :P

    Chun is broken. Yun and Ken are merely OP. Why do people love to leave Ken out of the equation, I've fought way more good Kens.

    Chun is not broken, she is merely OP. Ken and Makoto are over rated. Oro is better than both. Anyone can win. The game continues to evolve.
