I’m new and I love Street fighter 3 third strike , and ST , I’m not too fond of either of the MVC or CvS games.

I really want to get good or at least alright at either of these games and I’ve got a few questions , feel free to answer , I’m not going to be negative , and I’m gonna take what you say to heart:

  1. Which one of the games should I take more seriously? 3s is great and flashy , but I love ST and pulling off combos , and getting wins is more fun in ST.

  2. Which character should I pick in either? I love Boxer in ST but he seems pretty hard to learn , if anyone has an opinion , tell me. In 3s I like Sean , which may sound weird , especially after him getting nerfed after 2I.

  3. I live in the UK , so I’m not sure how to get competitive play , any Ideas? I have a 360 , and I have a Wii as well if that’s of any use.

  4. Is a fighting stick a great purchase? I know I wont come off my Xbox 360 when STHD comes out so…

and finally 5. Is anyone willing to coach/teach me? I don’t
know how this would be done , but it would be cool. Kaillera and MSN seem like viable options though.

Thanks ,
TwinSnak3s.

Super Turbo is great and if you have an xbox 360, the online play will surely be there. I dunno about the scene where you are at, check the regional forums for that.

I love ST and 3s, lots of people play both. I’m a boxer player myself, and I don’t really think he is all that difficult to learn, especially compared to chars like Gief or Hawk.

Arcade sticks are a must in my opinion. that is all there is to it. look in the customs forum in tech talk with more info about that.

for help with learning online, I suggest you check out the online matchmaking forums. I’m sure someone would be willing to help you, so long as you were cool about it.

Thanks , You got any particular reason you play boxer , or was it random?

He’s one of the best characters in the game.

seeing as you live in the UK, check out www.neoempire.com

Yeah Neoempire pretty much runs the tournament scene in the UK. If your in London, we regularly hold ranking battles for many games at Casino Arcade in London, including 3s and hsf2.

We also have a tournament coming up soon in Harrow, London.
Iron Man 2, its a winner stays on tournament. Unfortunately you missed out on the first Iron Man, where players battled it out on 3s, A3 and CvS2.

At Iron Man 2, sunday 25th November, there will be HSF2 and T5dr, plus many games on casual setups. Since your a fan of ST your might want to think about entering the HSF2 Iron man. Also I wouldn’t hold your breathe for ST, since we dropped that game over a year ago due to poor attendances and general lack of interest.

Anyway like Polarity said, head over to www.neoempire.com, and browse through our ranking battle and tournament sections on the forum, and see what takes your fancy. If you a chat, you can come inside our chatroom, we are all friendly. Hopefully I’ll see you at future events.

  1. Which one of the games should I take more seriously? 3s is great and flashy , but I love ST and pulling off combos , and getting wins is more fun in ST.

you’ll find more comp in 3s, ST players are hard to come by unless you can get your friends into it too.

  1. Which character should I pick in either? I love Boxer in ST but he seems pretty hard to learn , if anyone has an opinion , tell me. In 3s I like Sean , which may sound weird , especially after him getting nerfed after 2I.

in 3s start off with shotos (not sean) ken, ryu, akuma once you learn more about the game and its system, try dudley, necro, chun, etc etc

  1. I live in the UK , so I’m not sure how to get competitive play , any Ideas? I have a 360 , and I have a Wii as well if that’s of any use.

look around arcades, let playing online be your absolute LAST DESPERATE option.

  1. Is a fighting stick a great purchase? I know I wont come off my Xbox 360 when STHD comes out so… yes it is, its way better than pad, there’s a few that will argue that, but its really all about preference

and finally 5. Is anyone willing to coach/teach me? I don’t
know how this would be done , but it would be cool. Kaillera and MSN seem like viable options though.

look around someone might help

hope that helps

ps: play cvs2

I love boxer’s gigaton pawnch.

I’m fairly new to SF as well, and 3s easily them most popular capcom game right now.

look for “theshend” youtube if you havn’t found him yet. He literally has thousands of 3s vids up to watch, from match vids, to master classes.

Ok , thanks all , I have taken up Balrog , but don’t know where to start. And R3ko , Harrow’s a bit far , I’m all the way at the end of the Northern Line.

Well if you plan on getting in some real life competition in outside of online play, then your not left with too many choices.

We hold all our major events in London at Yates Bar in Harrow, which have 100+ turnouts. Players from all over the country travel there to participate.

Also many London players go to Casino arcade on Friday to play some games, theres 3s, hsf2, cvs2, mvc2, kof2k2, kof98, t5dr and many more.

If your looking for some casual sessions that are closer to you, then i reccomend you check out the London matchmaking forum, http://www.neoempire.com/forum/forumdisplay.php?f=48
