This is really frustrating, no one is posting on this game:mad:. I feel like starting a thread called hello people HSF2:AE is out where the fuck are you all?!? This is the game oldschoolers like me have been dreaming about for years, I even started a thread a few months back for theory fighter, Hyper Fighting vs Super Turbo matchups. And that really is the issue here HF and ST as most of the old schoolers generaly think one or the other is the best version of SF2, surprisingly most of the top ST players I have spoken to think HF is best.
Anyway I know some of the most reliable oldschool posters like Apoc dont actually own the game yet so thats understandable but to the rest of you where are you?
When I heard about the game I thought the old school scene would go wild and my prediction for 2004 (mad pipe dream more like :rolleyes: ) was old schoolers coming out of retirement to bust out their fave SF2 character versions at EVO2k4, I can hear it now
" And new EVO2k4 champion Tomo Ohira".
No but seriously, I cant beleive the lack of posting on this game. I dont own it yet but am happy to play theory fighter. Like you my main interests are in the matchups, mainly HF vs ST. I think these matchups, on paper at least, should be excellent:
HF Balrog (Boxer) vs ST.O.Sagat (just as you Drunkenmaster)
I have seen this match in HF and the TAP can whack Sagats extended limbs and dizzy fast, but is it quick enough for ST.O.Sagat? I think so. Now OSag will have two matches where he has to think!
CE Bison (dictator) vs ST Balrog (boxer)
The two best rushdown characters in the whole SF2 series. This is going to be wild. Dont ask for a prediction!
HF Ryu vs ST Ryu
This is to decide who is top dog amongst the SF2 Ryu’s, as everyone loves one or the other and have argued about which version is best. I wonder if HF can Cyclone Kick thru Super?
To answer your question Drunkenmaster I dont think its so much the CPS1 chains being an advantage as the overall dizzying ability of CPS1characters, I mean even in HF you could still dizzy in 2 moves! Shoto’s can dizzy in with 2 fireballs, and I dont just mean the jab, feirce consecutive hits, just 2 fireballs fairly near eachother!
I think HF Guile will get murdered by ST.O.Sagat.
Why are you curious about HF Geif vs ST Fei?
