So I dusted off my PS and started going through my old games recently. Just now I'm going through Street Fighter EX Plus Alpha, specifically the Expert Mode(like the trial mode in SFIV). I've come to a conclusion after getting blisters on my thumbs and lost skin at the base of my fingers. I fucking hate charge characters. I think I did every one of Ryu's and Ken's challenges on the first try, and I didn't need a lot of tries to get Chun-Li or Zangief either. I even got Dhalsim, a character I don't really like playing as.
Who am I missing? Bison's last three and Guile's last. Guile's last is only two moves. It's a double flash kick canceled into an opening gambit. Now, I can wrap my mind around the logistics that goes into this combo. You first do the double flash kick, then immediately hold back and input the rest of the sequence when Guile lands after the first flash kick... But I never get it.
But Bison is a different beast altogether. Like Guile's #16, Bison's #14 requires multiple supers in a combo, but is preceded by a jumping punch and a crouching light kick before the Psycho Cannon, Knee Press Knightmare and another Psycho Cannon. It's not like the others get any easier. I guess I find it much easier to execute double quarter-circles in a combo than Charged Back, Forward, Back, Forward, especially when you have to do multiple in a row...
And no, I'm not seeking the aid of the community. I'm content with not getting this and I'll probably put my PS1 back to collect dust again before too long. But out of curiosity, are there anyone else who have this problem with charge characters in this game(come to think of it, I think Guile and BIson are the only charge characters in this game)?
