Hey guys, I recently moved to Shanghai from the bEast Coast of the US and as a result of my main hobbies being illegal in this country have decided to get back into fighting games. In the States I found myself playing Street Fighter Alpha 3, MvC2, and CvS, against a host of unskilled players in the boonies of the Southeast and a bunch of hoods from the crack communities in Brooklyn. As a result if I knew how to properly zone, determine pace, and not get too caught up in my own rhythm I was almost guaranteed a victory.
Having come to China, my living situation has improved and I’ve purchased my first ever arcade stick in order to train. The level of competition here is disturbingly amazing, especially with KOF. I’m being whupped by 38 year olds at older versions of KOF. As I’ve never had a mentor and have never really found rivals at the appropriate (moderately challenging) skill level, I find myself in a very difficult situation. I’ve re-purchased SFIV:AE, KOF XIII, and SFxT to give myself a wide variety of games to exercise my hand and eye coordination. However in China, youtube videos are blocked so when it comes to “Vesper’s Arcade” and several other often-mentioned learning resources; I am locked out. Does anyone know of any videos for download or ones hosted on China ISP friendly sites that I can learn from?
tl;dr I wanna learn to do more than a Hadoken on a stick. Where are there videos that I can access from China?
