I’m going to go out on a limb and ask for some suggestions here from you GGXX knowledgeable folk. KenX, Beast of Fire, ryucross (does he come here?), SSJ Hibiki I’d love some input from you guys.
Only recently have I felt confident in the way that I play CvS2, and it took me quite a whiles to sit down and figure out my manner of play style. So I’ll tell you how I like to play, and then who I’m trying to muck around with it, and you guys can go all out and tell me who would be best used to accompany my playstyle.
I like being able to have some range in my attacks, as so I can inflict damage and be safe, but not to the point where I’m playing keep away or turtling the entire match.
For example, in CvS2 I love playing with Hoahmaru, and I can play plenty offensive with him, or defensive. Other favorites are Vega and Blanka.
I’m trying to buckle down and really get into GGXX so here is who I’ve fucked with and what I think.
Sol - I hate Sol. I hate how he plays. I hate everything he does. I just flat out can’t take playing with him or against him. I imagine that with time and understanding of the game, I’ll begin to see his weaknesses poking through, but right now he just seems way overpowered.
Jam. I love being speedy and crazy. She’s lots of fun to play with, but it’s so hard to get in and land a hit with her. I don’t think she has much of a ground game, so the folks I play against with obviously know to guard her from jumping on them. She obviously doesn’t bode well for my manner of play, but I like her speed.
Bridget. I tried to learn this little twat, but the only good thing I do with him is to play a moderate game of lockdown, which brings up the fact that I’m not actually hurting them, but more afraid of being hurt myself. I love his range, manueverability, and the fact that I have to appropiately multi task. Very challenging.
Ky. Now I thought this guy would have perfectly fit my playstyle, but he’s just so slow sometimes, and to me I can see most everything coming (if I were playing against another Ky). He seems a bit simple too, which isn’t a bad thing mind you. So I guess you can say that I love his range but dislike his manueverability and speed.
Millia. I would love to learn how to use her right, master all her air combos, all of it. I’ve heard she has one ugly learning curve though, but I’m willing to give all my time to her. The end result is that I love her speed and manueverabilty but dislike her lack of range. And I can’t get the hang of launching after a throw yet either.
Venom. I’m going to try and see what he’s got, but I like EX-Venom so much more thanks to how he can call forth his pool balls, but my judgement is being held on him.
One more thing, the game has IAD still right? How do I do them, or how do I know if I’ve done it right? Also, what of jump installs, how are they done?
So yeah, that’s what I got going. Go for it. Be brutal.
