Hi all! This year was my second time watching EVO and I developed a big interest in fighting games because of it (never played fighting games before other than a few games). I’ve been wanting to play SSF4 since the first couple games I’ve watched from it, but I don’t own a PS3 or Xbox and wasn’t really willing to spend the money on one just for one game. But then Steam summer sale happened and AE was $10… Now I’ve been told that it wasn’t worth getting for PC but I figured it couldn’t possibly be a waste of money at that price. So I got it a few days ago and I’ve been pretty much grinding training mode with Ibuki and fighting medium AI (which still sometimes kicks my ass). Today I thought I could try a ranked game but got pretty much destroyed, only 1 close round and a few good reads on my part. Then I was wondering if it was really worth it going into ranked games that early since I can’t even reliably execute my character’s moves anyways. Long story short… should I stick to training mode for a while?
None of my real life friends would play this game so practicing locally isn’t an option.
Playing with a keyboard really sucks but I’m not ready to drop the money on a stick yet.
