I played Street Fighter 2 a lot when it was in the arcades way back in the late 80's early 90's (I forget exactly). I wasn't the best in the world but the game made sense to me back then. I was pretty good and enjoyed the game immensely. I never really played Street Fighter 3 as I was in college at the time and the place I was at didn't really have a copy of the game nearby so I just skipped it. I played it a little on the Dreamcast, but offline and vs the AI.


Fast forward to today and I find myself trying to play the game as if it was still Street Fighter 2 and it just doesn't work. I'm actually almost ready to just give up because I don't understand any of the timing. I play through the challenge modes and usually get to the point where they want you to do several attacks followed by a cancel into another attack and I can never pull it off. To start the amount of buttons you tend to have to press with split second speed just eludes me. I can never seem to get them to fire off and only recently am able to even cancel a focus attack, but all it ever does is whiff, I can never get it to go into the EX moves the game seems to want. Either way I don't ever find myself actually wanting to pull any of these moves off outside of the challenge rooms. I know they are useful, but they are so incredibly difficult to pull off in the first place that I'll never be able to use them properly.

People I play online (especially now) are so fluent with pulling these crazy things off that it's not uncommon for me to be hit with some nuts combo that it reminds me of what I hated back in the day about MK and Killer Instinct. I used to like that street Fighter combos were usually 4 hits with the rare 5 hit and now  that it's changed I find myself in some kind of old timers limbo.

It seems that the only character I even have a decent shot with most days is Zangief, and that's only because I don't need to land too many hits or combos to win, but I'd rather be playing half the other characters.

Anyone else feel like they are in the same boat with this game/series?

Anyone on here know of a way to hear the Block Rockin beats cover online? Amazons is enough to make me really want to laugh myself into a coma listening to the full version. Plus a buddy of mine is a big Chemical Brothers Fan and I want to make him piss himself.

It's pretty bad but playable. It actually reminds me of the first few months Diablo 2 was out in terms of the hitches and lag. Hopefully they will fix it. I started playing this morning at 9ish and here it is 1:30 and I just finally got out of my seat. I feel the D2 burn again.

The game is all kinds of awesome. Been scoorechasing Supermarius for over a week now and that alone is tons of fun.

Looks like the race here is between   Supermarius  (moody) and myself. Last I checked I finally cleared 300 and am at 288 overall, I'm sure you'll overtake me but this is the most fun I've had with a game score wise in some time. I think if it wasn't for this little rivalry I'd have stopped playing as much as I have been by now.

If you go outside the basement as desmond you can run around town. I was trying to find the artifacts and thought hat eagle vision might help. I noticed that while by the exit/entrance to the basement there's a trail of what I can only guess is blood that you can only see with eagle vision on. It leads from the back of the villa down to the stairs that go into town, but stop halfway down the stairs.  
 
Anyone know what this is?

I'm gonna keep at it, I just have no designs on ever unlocking the kid from I want to be the guy. WTF that level is bullshit.

It's more than just the zeroes. there are quite a few other times that are just flat out impossible as well. CH4x10 in Hell mode has a LOT of people with times at the 8minute mark which isn't even possible because it takes about 6 seconds just to get the key and get back to the platform. Maybe there are some characters with skills to cheat the key spot but Meat boy has a few of the top scores. Only thing I can think of is there's glitching a happening.
