Sparse footage on YouTube of his matches. As of last year, he’s still active in ST and still a good player. His footsies are insane.
Almost forgot. There’s complete footage of that Kurahashi v. Kameraya set they teased during a commercial break. Should all be on Daigo’s Beast YT channel.
Is Claw considered broken in this game?
He’s strong, but not broken. Akuma is broken, hence why he’s banned from most tournament play.
What makes a good street fighter imo is one that is honest and pretty much forces every character to play the ground game or else you die. ST is like this for most of the cast, What I hate about vega is he can win with nothing but gimmicks.
Compare a match like this…
Evo grand finals and Mao won with a vortex.
What’s the deal with this tourney?
You mean with GSV in general or just with them blanking out the health bars and supers? I’m pretty sure the latter is just an after-effect done on the stream station. They can’t actually do that to the arcade cabs. I guess it makes it more exciting for the viewers, but they generally don’t do this kind of stuff.
Gameplay seemed kinda weird too, so I was wondering if the players couldn’t see the health/super meter either. eg. Chun vs O.Boxer(?)
I’d honestly be extremely surprised if they found a way, or if they even bothered, managing to put those overlays on the arcade screens themselves. Highly unlikely though. And I’ve yet to hear of them hold tournaments where they covered it up with tape or anything like that.
Will USF2 soft ban Akuma instead of hard ban in America
Just saw some more USF2 footage.
No way Violent Ken and Evil Ryu will be allowed
Didn’t know Akuma was this good in CVS2:
Well, I mean you can do that with a few instruments in real life, like putting cardboard or layers of post-it notes over the screen. We’ve done that before to Unessential just to troll him on his super meter in casuals.
The higher tiered characters are boring imo… too easy to play at a “elevated level, with ease”
I was patient and had fun just mastering the entire cast and the lower tiers are by FAR my favorite to play and win matches with.
Just purchased USF2, looks good EXCEPT - they should have allowed ORIGINAL INPUTS FOR SPECIALS, and NOT adjusted to the new HDRemix input remastered - HOPEFULLY the creators can make an update allowing this.
Glad to have SF back on NINTENDO !!!
Is this true?
I thought it was proven that inputs on “turbo” frames were dropped?
If you look at this replay until you get to Claw (it may take a while), you can see that World Warrior Claw has 2 types of Barcelona Attacks. 1 attack is where he extends his arms and the other attack is where he doesn’t extend his arms and keep his arms crossed. The one where he keeps his arms crossed is actually the command throw version of the Izuna Drop (2 complete different moves) where his arms stay crossed until he grabs you. But, for some reason if you are out of throw range, his claw still has a hitbox to where you get hit like in the following replay:
Do other CPU controlled Claws have this ability like CE, HF, Super, and Super Turbo, etc?
