So even though I am in my late thirties I have decided to give a try to fighting games. My first and last experience was owning SF II for the SNES, but I never actually learnt how to play it properly.
Because until now my only platform was my decent laptop I had little choice of games to play so I started with SSFIV AE a couple of weeks ago now turned into Ultra.
I have very little time to train but last week I managed to start executing cancels consistently in training mode! I am beginning to discover the joy of fighting games. Although I must say I find the game a bit overwhelming. I still have not managed to execute a super or an ultra during combat, I still don’t quite understand the focus attacks, etc.
A workmate has offered me a PS3 and now I have a bit more e of choice. I could actually play Super turbo remix, which is the game recommended and used by Patrick Miller in his fantastic begginer manual which I would like to follow.
So should I leave Ultra SF4 to rest for a few month, learn the basics with super turbo remix and then move back to Ultra SF IV?
Other option jut keep playing ultra and hope that all those elements will fit into place eventually.
