Hello, First of all I guess I can introduce myself here too, just to kill two birds with one stone.
My name is TJ and I have been a very big video game user ever since I was about 5 years old. We had the NES when I was 5 and I played my heart out on it, when I turned 6 I took the NES apart and fixed it since it was having a lot of trouble reading cartridges. Ever since then I have been very in to video games and am currently getting ready to go to college and major in Psychology and Computer Science with a minor in Graphic design. It is my hope and my personal goal to apply all three of those traits in to one and become the best video game designer that I allow myself to be.
I picked up a copy of Street Fighter - Anniversary Collection at my local Gamestop about a week after I posted a video of Diago (Spelling?) on the popular website Digg.
I remembered in the old days of my childhood (It’s scary that I can start saying that now.) that I loved playing Street Fighter on my SNES. Soon after buying it for my Xbox I found out that my passion for the game has been hiding in me for a very long time. 2 Months later and surely over $300 wasted in food, drinks, and more controllers my friend and I still can not stop playing the game. The place that I recently moved in to now is getting a 52 Inch screen TV and one of my roommates already loves the game to death… I’m sure we will have a local tournament.
BUT, With that part of the story over, I must ask now. In this huge time period I have figured out a few things that I had really liked to do with characters (My 3 best controllable characters are Ken, Ryu, and Akuma). I have been surfing the internet and been looking at more videos just very recently and noticed so many things that I have never seen before. Oro casting a huge what looks to be star at players, Akuma smacking the ground and it erupts in flames… Supers I have never seen before… Colors I have never seen before. The whole time my friends and I are versus’ing and I have never seen anything like what I have seen on the Videos, Even when going in to Arcade mode with the hardest (Full stars for difficulty level) and I still don’t see anything like what is shown in the videos.
What I would like to know is what would be some good tutorials (I’m more of a visual learner then Reading learner) that I could see for Akuma, Ken, and Ryu? I always see these videos of them pulling off ridiculous things but never does one video that I see actually show me how to do that, or if it try’s to show me it’s always in Japanese.
I would really like to learn as much as possible so I hope everyone throws in their own 2 cents. Anything and everything is welcome because with learning there is always another way to do something.
