Recently, I just went back on this game because I was bored. Yeah, this game is still nowhere near good, but its good for casual plays. I remember SvC was pretty hyped up around my place a few years ago and it became such a quick let down to many.
So I was fooling around with Serious Mr. Karate and I found out that he’s pretty damn bugged or perhaps broken. Aside from what he is capable of, dodging projectiles, moves, etc, Serious Mr. Karate can also punch out projectiles. His stand jab and crouch jab can cancel out most single to three hit projectiles. It can even reduce the number of hits of multi hit projectiles such as Shinkuuhadouken. A regular Shinkuuhadouken does 5 hits, but Serious Karate can shave it to 3 hits or perhaps even down to 1 hit. A series of well timed jabs can cancel out Mai’s Hadouken Fan Super. His jab tip must meet the front tip of the incoming projectile. If it’s perfectly timed, the projectile gets canceled and Karate takes no damage and recovers from the jab. I’ll try to make a short video on it soon.
Yep, SvC is still borderline decent.
