Ok, I have quite a bit to type in here, but I’ll try my best to keep it short.
I bought Street Fighter Anniversary Edition about 5 months ago, and have never actually taken the game all that seriously, until up about 4 weeks ago. I don’t exactly know what drew me to SRK in the first place, but I believe I found it while searching for guides on the game. I had visited SRK before, about a year ago during the 2006 EVO tournament. I watched the 3rd Strike videos for that year, but I didn’t really care for it at all.
I started playing Super Turbo about 4 weeks ago as I mentioned before. But, to be honest with you I was not good at all. I lost to the arcade, (I’ve heard it’s hard for many people though) couldn’t execute moves, couldn’t execute specials etc.
Recently, I’ve been able to due a few Hadoukens (I think that’s how it’s spelled) and other moves with the same button input and the rest of my strategy was pretty much button-mashing. I’ve only beaten the arcade once on the easiest mode, and it took me about 50-60+ battles just to do that.
I’ve thought about getting into this game more competitively, but I’m not seeming to improve. I’ve scanned T. Akiba’s page, though I didn’t even understand the English aspects of the game let alone the Japanese. (I don’t know the the terminology in ST very well) I’ve scanned the Wiki briefly skipping basically everything except for the characters, and I can’t even choose a character to practice with myself.
Now, why have I come here? This is probably the largest Street Fighter site on the internet, and I’ve seen tournament player come here to post on the forums. I’m sure someone could help me with my play. Below I will sum up what I need help with. Perhaps someone could reccomend me a video or some guide or something?
- Don’t know what character to play.
- Don’t know the terminology.
- Can’t execute moves.
- Overall, not very good.
I don’t have really anyone to practice with because nobody really knows about the game locally. Some do, but they are probably above my level.
P.S I’d honestly appreciate any sort of help that you can give me. I’ve spent about 2 weeks trying to join the forums and just about 15 minutes prior to writing this is when I joined the forums.
