As The Revenge of Ruthless Bald Alico enters its final stages and is being uploaded I just want to take a moment and present this to the Hakan community, and make a request as well. Although I don’t play Hakan, I feel like he is under-used, under appreciated and unfortunately completely unexplored as a character. There seems to be a lot of debate on what Hakan is meant to do in Street Fighter IV, but realistically its as clear as day to some of us. Hakan is a monster. He is the only character in SFIV that almost literally breaks all the rules of what is commonly accepted as “possible” and “impossible” within the match. His damage output is great, he has un-reversable DDT set ups that can’t even be crouched that next to NO ONE knows how to get out of. He might not say it himself, but i’ve been preaching for him from the moment I played his Hakan. Liquigen is the best Hakan in america right now, Period. He understands and love this character like no one else, and was really enthusiastic about putting out this first installment of our two part tutorial on what Hakan can REALLY do.
Now, here is my request. When the video goes online completely, I want you all to send this in to Keits and help us get this on the front page of SRK. Hakan deserves his spot light, i’m sure you can all agree on that. This community needs to draw attention to themselves, the more people interested in him, the more he can be figured out. I’m pretty sure this is 100% possible, make it happen guys.
