I’m putting this here because I use Akuma as my main character and I really want to better my skill with him as well as the general populous of SF33rdS.
For a long while I’v considered myself a pretty good Street Fighter fan and player – the best of my friends in my opinion and their’s. However, in the past while I’ve come to the realization that I’m only good – not great. Just looking at the Daigo full parry video makes me cringe. I’m far from having that kind of control. Not to mention I JUST learned about Kara-Throwing and I’m trying to implement it into my style. I just never though that people were THIS good. I was recently in Montreal and found myself at an arcade that had a SF33rdS arcade and figured, hey I’m pretty good – I’ll give it a shot. In short, after a few good matches I started to get my butt handed to me.Therefore I’m on a mission to better my playing: Specifically SF3 3rdS.
Now to the real question: I watched the Akuma demo that is in the torrents section of this website. What I want to know is: Is that without any system direction manipulation? Is he really capable of all that? I’m trying to recreate this stuff just so I know its real, default, gameplay. I just can’t pull off the juggling and two-in-ones that he does. Can anyone varify that video for me? Plus I was also wondering if there was an instructional video to help me out with the actual system of the game. See if there are any nuances that I missed. I want to get to Daigo level and I’m willing to put some serious time into this. Nothing is more relaxing after work than some SF – for me anyway.
On a side note: is the SF33rdS the same for the PS2, Dreamcast, XBox, and arcade versions? ie: are the game machanics the same?
