The recent news of Ibuki in super street fighter 4 has reinstated my interest in street fighter. I had dropped 3s in favor of KOF and then I wound up hating KOF. I never hated 3s but I kinda just stopped playing after a while. I had tried SF4 but I wasn’t really that into it and I just stopped playing fighting games altogether at that point.
After I quit SF4 I became obsessed with Ninja Gaiden and now I’m back here again. I haven’t played 3rd strike in almost 2 years or any fighting game in almost one year. I’ve been doing some training mode for the last couple days and to my surprise I can still do most of the bread and butter combos. Other than that I have completely forgotten how to play the game on a competitive scale.
I would like to come back to this game in case SSFIV fails me because I noticed some of the guys I used to play with (Nica KO, Tweleve,) still play today. I’ve also noticed people who used to post a lot (Dander, harmonaz, BlaQ, Hold Dat) are still here. I’m just kind of afraid to come back because I’ll get stomped harder than ever before. I was already bad when I quit, but everyone has passed me by and I’m starting from square one again.
So is the GGPO crowd for 3s still pretty decent? What about 2df? I haven’t used either program in ages. In fact I don’t even have them on my new computer.
