Lost among the UMVC3 announcements and leaks was Capcom giving a release date for 3S:OE. August 23rd for XBLA and August 24th for PSN. The game will cost $15.

Consider it purchased.

I guess August is the time I learn how to play this, even though it's probably going to be incredibly hard for somebody who's never played it at all before.

Can't wait to watch online Ryus and Kens crumble under parrying AA SRKs, mashed shit, and badly spaced fireballs. It'll be fun.

Maybe for you :( I've never played it before so I'm just going to get repeatedly destroyed

But, I mostly meant the people that rely on SF4's retarded leniency on its inputs that just crank the D-pad or stick and mash FP and hope for something to come out and get blown the fuck up for it. That shit don't work in SF3!

Excited for this. I'm complete garbage at the game, but maybe now I can get decent at it.

I will use high tier Chun and still be garbage, wahoo!

Or Hugo.

Also parrying through latency is going to SUCK.

@StarvingGamer: The game will use GGPO netcode, so there will theoretically be little to no lag. I haven't played 3s that much, but I plan to make it my main fighting game once OE launches. I'll use Ken as my main, but I also want to learn Makoto and Ibuki and a few others.
