With the release of 3rd strike online coming to xbox and Psn, i was curious as to how this will divide the fighting game community. A lot of people complain about the changes that were made in SF4 in regard to how it was in the older games, game mechanics such as input leniency, reversal windows, auto correct etc etc. And that 3rd strike is the much more ‘hardcore’ of the two games with less scrubby tactics and basically requiring that you are a lot better at the game to do well at.
which of you are going to be dropping SF4 altogether and just playing 3rd strike? any one skipping 3rd strike entirely? or are most of you going to be dabbling in both of them at the same time?
personally i love 3rd strike, but it passed me by when it was first released and ive only started playing it really the last couple of years. SF4 has seen much more play in general from me and i dont think id turn my back on it completely, as i definatly want to give 3rd strike a real shot at getting legitimatly good at the game.
anyone elses thoughts on how the current SF4 community will be divided? i think it will be interesting to see whether the games get divided between more serious/casual players, as i can definatly imagine the competition being a lot more fierce on SF3 as opposed to 4.
