I played Third Strike for the first time a couple days ago and I must say, it feels so much more reactive and thus fun to me, it’s ridiculous. Does AE really have such a huge input delay or is it just me?
Linking in TS is easy as fuck, but in AE it is haaard.
Seriously, is it just me (my computer or something in my setup) or is there really such a huge difference between the two, regarding input delay?
most of the differences are obvious enough that you can trust yourself to decide without needing an explanation from people who probably don’t know much more than you do. if the fun factor is enough to offset the reduced comp associated w/ older games for you, then play 3rd Strike. what kind of explanation would change your mind? there isn’t a huge difference in input delay. if anything, sf4 might have less compared to old cps-based games, but i dunno. if the game feels sluggish it’s not for that reason.
you’re playing SSF4 on PC? IIRC vsync on PC SSF4 adds some severe input lag. might be part of it.
anyway they’re fundamentally different games. one might appeal to you while the other might not. they reward different skillsets. comparing 3s to anything on SRK is baiting a long drawn out argument though. lol.
It might more reactive due to the speed difference between the games tricking you into believing it is. It could also be your computer isn’t running SF4 at a decent frame rate due to its higher performance requirements.
Linking can be difficult in both games, depending on how tight the link is. Generally S4 is considered easier due to input leniency and plinking. Not sure if 3s has plinking, I don’t believe it does, but I find the difficult links pretty hard to hit consistencly in that game.
Different people have different ideas on what a ‘fun’ game is. I say if you like 3s more than SF4, then play 3s.
