He plays Ryu well enough, so I guess he just has fun with a different character from his main. In all the major tournaments he uses Guile. Smaller tourneys he might switch around.
Kurahashi has an extremely dangerous and efficient ken as well that is easily on par with the best.
Those of us that are exposed to ST only as movie hounds don’t get to see much sub character action. Footage of Tama’s Chun or Pony’s Hawk (at master secret cup, I think) are rare gems. Stuff like Kurahashi Ken (!) or Mayakon Guile doesn’t seem to make it to the net.
Speaking of that, there should be some vids from a recent Mikado solo 2on coming soon. Noguchi Fei/O.Sagat (<- standing in for CE sagat to practice for SBO, I guess) Also Taira Dictator/New Sagat, hopefully Mattsun Ken/Cammy.
Anyone got the vids from EVO east? I’d love to see those.
No you wouldn’t…those matches were UGLY…
but your matches were beautiful right?
Worst matches I’ve ever played in my life. :sad:
SAGAT MATCHES???!! From JAPAN :D!
Mayakon Vs Komoda AKA= NEVER GIVE UP :D:D
Does anyone know how Taira pulled off this trick against KKY’s Sim in this video [media=youtube]1GXZezg7mWk[/media] at 3:25? He practically walked forward like Chun with a stored super.
After completing the super motion on the joystick, you actually have 11 frames to hit the button, so you can take a noticeable step forward before doing the super. I’ve also seen Tama do it with Boxer’s super after low Jabs. (They do it to fake out the opponent…make 'em think a throw is coming.)
Ah now I understand, figured it was some technical issue to do with the inputs, makes for a pretty evil fake. Is this info already mentioned in the wiki, or T.Akiba’s site?
The 11 frames is mentioned in T.Akiba’s site. The tactic is not on either (I scanned over both); and is a usefull tactic. Thanks NKI :wgrin:
Can anyone post this players names?

TONS of new vids on youtube…
GOGOGOGOGO!!! They are HOT!!
Heh, I was just about to plug that youtube account over here. Thanks go to tianyuan for helping me upload those.
Well I posted links to the GMC vids a couple years ago here on SRK.
Yes! hehe. Said GMC vids are worth watching again. Fuckin’ A! Doesn’t get any hotter.
BTW: where there’s a capital G next to a players name on the x-mania 1 vids that means I wasn’t 100% sure if it was them or not.
Worst version of ST. EVER!
I like How Blanka at the end ate all those throws. I woulda killed myself at the end of the match if that happened to me.
LOL, Is Ken doing an aerial psycho crusher when he jumps? And I love how Zangeif like magically throws them, and his k 360 throw.
