Excuse me, but i have to rant a lil and get this off my chest about how terrible i am at this game. I just got my ass handed to me by my homeboy who hasn’t touched this game in years. (32 to 0 to be exact). Im quite furious at the moment. I don’t think i’ve ever been so terrible at a game before, lol. I’m generally decent at fighting games, but when it comes to the pre-alpha street fighters i’m insanely bad.
I have a pretty solid understanding of footsies, zoning, combos, and can get most of the execution down for most games. But in this game (and all the older sfs for that fact) nothing works and im just gettin owned. No matter who i use. I can’t seem to understand how this damn thing works! at first i thought maybe i’m being overly aggressive/antsy and i should slow it down, but i end up just getting trapped in the corner/mixed up to death.
reading guides/forums/faqs and practicing in the training room just doesn’t seem to help. I’m thinking it might be the pacing of the game? I’ve gotta be missing something in the fundamentals/game mechanics here.
I’ve been playing SSFIV and getting better at it as of late, but for some reason i seem to be getting even worst at hd remix than i was ever before! Street fighter itself was a challenge since i’ve come to realize how much more difficult and strategic it is to the other fighting games. I’m actually quite good at the 3d fighters, and the fast paced fighters (guilty gear, blazblue, KOF), but when it comes to street fighter i get rocked. Especially the older ones.
Anyone care to enlighten me as to what i’m missing here? How can i suck less at this damn game!?!? Is there something wrong with my mentality of how these games work astray? I am willing to practice more, but there must be a right way to practice with this game because the hours i’ve sank in to this doesn’t seem to help. I’ve gotta be doing something wrong, perhaps it’s bad habits from fast paced games? help!
