Just wanted to introduce myself. RookieMaroK is my ps3 nickname aswell, I'm a 28 year old guy from mid europe and a big fan of fighting games. I played games all my life but only on the PC. This year in march i bought finally my ps3 because i was tired of boring PC games. I was always a fighting game fan but on PC there are no good games like Tekken, MvC etc. I picked up the SF4 version with the gamepad for the pc but it was just way unnatural for me to execute supers so i played the game on a keyboard :-)
However, i fell in love with the SF series and picked up for my ps3 SFxT, UMvC3, SSF4AE and even the SFiii3SOE. Ordered a round2 TE fighstick because i want to become more than a simple newbie playing vs CPU on easy all the time. The problem is, that i never ever used a stick and even after 2 months i just cant make any cancels, or intentional shoryukens when i see my enemy jumping at me etc, cant pull out fireballs anytime i want, cant make 2x quarter circle forward to make a super hadouken. Watched a couple of vids
I didnt liked the SFxT game, so i put it awaySF4 is ok but my love is just the third strike, i love old school games but i feel that inputs and moves are pretty harder to make in this game than in SF4. But i dont want to give up. Not to mention i cant parry properly, didnt finished Kens shoryuken parry training :( I'm here to ask for what should I do, should i go to training, or challanges or how to improve ? I did not beat the game even on the easiest mode, Gill always beat the hell out of me.
I watched a couple of vids about this, how to hold a stick, how to cancel, link how to super. I understand the game concept but i just cant pull out the moves, doesnt matter how I hold the stick the joystick is ok but it is very uncomfortable when it comes to quarter circles and such things. I find myself mash the arcade stick almost all the time :-(
I could use some help, advice and a training guide. What should be my 1st step to improve the moves, controls, which character is the easiest for newbies and such things. I like Ruy, Ken and Akuma :-)
Really dont want to throw games like this away even if I'm the worst fighting game player in the world, i would like to improve and i need you for that guys.
Thank you very much for all the anwers in advance.
btw : yes i have read some guides before posting this.
