I got Ultra just last week but i’ve put in a lot of time already and played quite a bit at a friend’s house too. I’ve pretty much decided I want to play Gouken, but like I said, I have a pretty strange and frustrating problem… I’m fairly new to fighting games, that might be part of it. Oh, and if this is a bad place to ask this maybe someone can point me to a different place or forum altogether?
Anyhow, so here’s my issue. For some godforsaken reason, I cannot do simple combos. I just really really suck. But on the other hand, somehow I can FADC into ultra and other random fairly difficult things without any issue. For example with Gouken, I can FADC out of ex.Tatsu or ex.Palm into Shin Shoryuken without too much trouble, but I can’t do standing hp into Palm, or cr.mp into hadouken for my life. I just can’t get the timing down… it’s really frustrating since I understand ways to do big damage but I can’t set up my combos. I started the game with Akuma, and between him and Gouken I’ve probably tried to do punch into hadouken for like 4 hours… with maybe 10 successes… max. there has to be something I am doing wrong. I’ve tried a bunch of other characters but Poison is the only other one I’ve tried seriously. Gouken is who I really want to play though. Any tips?
