So I’ve been a lurker on this website for awhile now and properly joined just yesterday. I recently got interested into fighting games and wanted to take them more seriously then just being a casual fighting gamer. The only fighting game that I’ve ever properly played in my life was the Tekken series (been playing ever since i was 7 :] ). I think I do know the basics to fighting games but only by sense, and don’t really know their technical details like frame datas, names to kicks/punches/moves, and other details that I probably don’t even know exist.
What I’m now interested in is to switch to Xbox from PS3, and get into Street Fighter. I’ve only tried SSF4 a few times before as one of my friends was into it. The more I read about the depth and detail of fighting games, the more I want to get better.
I’ve never played a fighting game on a competitive level before, so I’m now looking for tips on how to switch to the Street Fighter series from being a Tekken player my whole life and possibly start on a arcade stick before I get too used to the Xbox pad.
