As the title indicates, I’m really new to SF4, and to trying to take fighting games seriously in general. As such, I wanted to know what people’s thoughts were on me trying to learn the game as Viper. Other fighters I’ve considered are Cody, Sakura, and possibly Rufus (if I get around to buying the alternate costumes, his normal I can’t bear to look at).
I’ve messed around for at least 15 minutes or so (more for those that I’ve liked) in training and/or arcade mode with most characters. I did less with characters who have charge-input specials; I suck at those.
Also, I just bought a fight stick, the SE MadCatz one rather than TE as I’m new to the scene and am not sure how far I will go with it.
