Hello. I’ve come to these forums for help in fighting games. I’ve always had fun in fighting games but uptil now I’ve never really been good and I’ve never taken the time to get better. Before this every fighting game I played I would just mash the buttons in hopes of getting an astounding combo. It works sometimes but after watching fighting game tourneys on YouTube, I want to get better and be able to perform the moves I want at anytime instead of mashing the buttons and hoping for a result. Right now I don’t have access to an Xbox or PS3 at the moment, but I’ve been using handhelds like the PSP and PSVITA to practice. I’ve played SSIV:AE and UMVC3 on consoles and after a couple hours of training mode I managed to come up with ok combos with Ryu on both games. But as I said before I have no access to a console at the moment so I’ve been practicing on the handhelds.
Right now I’m playing Street Fighter Alpha Max 3 and I’ve been spending a heck of an amount of time practicing with Akuma. I’ve also been playing other fighters such as Soul Caliber Broken Destiny for the PSP And Tekken 6 for the PSP. In addition to Dead Or Alive 5 Plus (demo) for the PSVITA. In a month I’ll be getting Street Fighter X Tekken and UMVC3 both for the PSVITA. What my question is though is which fighting game for both handhelds is the best to learn the fundamentals? I’ve seen an increase in my fighting game ability but not enough to be considered good. Any help,tips,or advice on getting better from you guys would be greatly appreciated! Thanks.
