Well i saw that a couple of users were making videos on how awesome they were at street fighter 4 ....so i decided to show you how the bad street fighter players of the Giantbomb community play ....well enjoy 
 
 

  
It took so many tries just to do this simple combo that its depressing ..

Proper Ringo Starr accent you've got going on there. Can you charge while focusing? In the five minutes that I toyed with the idea of using Guile I tried doing this and couldn't for the life of me understand how to.

its not so bad! besides im sure many other players go through that trial and error practice till they finally master it. They just don't record it like you do I guess.:D

Yeah.. I'm glad I didn't record myself learning how to do Akuma's jump-in combo that ends with FADC Shaku. That would be embarrassing.

You hold the joystick like you're shifting gears on a manual transmission, not that there's anything wrong with that just a bit amusing to watch. You have good camera presence as well, you should do more video blog style stuff. Here's how I personally use the arcade stick:

You're gonna go nuts if you get that one out on me in a proper fight... Just a matter of tiiime...

Oh man, the look on your face after bringing up focus canceling was priceless. We totally need to play, from the looks of it we're on the same level.

#15 Posted by defaulttag (890 posts) -

nice work. SF4 requires lots of practice/multiplayer sessions. Have you tried regular flash kick (cancel)-->super combo? or sonic boom (cancel) ->super-> ultra? with practice, those actually work lol. sounds impossible, you just need to be super fast with the stick or dpad.

Reminds me of the dark days - trying to do all the hard trials.

If you hold the stick like a wine glass, moving the stick to the edges of the gate requires much less effort. At the moment your putting your whole arm into moving the stick, and whip lashing it after you do a move. When you get your execution down, everything becomes much easier.

Yea I'm still getting used to the feel of the stick .

#22 Posted by Stang (4726 posts) -

You are my SFIV hero sir! Perhaps try putting the stick in your lap or on a chair so you have better leverage. It may be just me, but it does not look like you are giving yourself all that good of angle with your current setup.

It moves around too much for my liking

You should play me if you want to feel better about yourself. I also use Guile.

@turbomonkey138: I've added you as well. Time to see if you can pull off that Guile combo on my Blanka :P (Is it me, or did that sound dirtier then it was supposed to be?)

I wish I had a British accent. You just sound smarter then me :\
 
Im going to make a Guile video as a form of payback. Take that.

I have nothing to add, except that the abundance of sprite based avatars by posters in this thread is awesome.

He does not have a BRITISH accent !!!
#35 Posted by Stang (4726 posts) -
@turbomonkey138: Just playing, your Guile is 10x better then mine. The concept of charge characters escapes me. And you mean that 2 minute video I made yesterday? Maybe later I will make a video showing all the bullshit Ken can do, but never would do in a match. As of now, Ultima is the king of combo videos, I will do my best though :p

Non issue.

That is impossible. You can't land an ultra after a flashkick/sonic boom canceled to super. You can combo an super into an ultra if the super was done on it's own or canceled from a normal move.
 
Anyways, good video. We can play some if you like. I can help teach you a few things. Just put the time limit on infinite and mess about.

@Scooper: 
 sonic boom (cancel)->super->ultra . It lands.

#41 Posted by Scooper (7882 posts) -
@defaulttag: Wow. I honestly did not think that was possible. That combo isn't that hard but everytime I've tried the Ultra it's never worked. Maybe I was using the wrong kick button for the super. I apologise for that.
#42 Posted by defaulttag (890 posts) -
@fwylo:  LOL I posted that same video wrong. I don't know how to use giantbomb XD.
 
Anyways this is how you do it.
 
charge DB, DF+P (sonic boom happens), DB, UF+K (while super happens, charge DB), DF, DB, UF+KKK at guile's landing.
#43 Posted by defaulttag (890 posts) -
@Scooper: No worries man. Good to see a fellow guile mains here. Pretty badass though, ey? Oh it's LK for the super I believe.
#44 Posted by fwylo (3556 posts) -
@defaulttag: I know, I took your code and embedded it.  (It's under the insert tab, Insert --> Video)
#45 Posted by AniMoney (957 posts) -

Fuck guile. One of balrog's most annoying matches for me. I hope they give him some more offense in super.

#46 Posted by defaulttag (890 posts) -
@fwylo: Oh thanks! I'll keep that in mind from now on lol.

Good Guile's are so fucking hard to go up against, I'm a Blanka man, and I have to get in close on a Guile and that's disasterous most of the time.

@Bobby_The_Great:  Blanka can be sick too. I love that controllable EX rainbow roll. People suck at blocking it.

Focus absorbing that seems to be a good tactic to avoid the ambiguous crossup.

Gotta use that Beast Slide if Guile is getting low. (though be careful, if he blocks it and you're win way to close, he'll get you good on the recovery)  
But, yeah, eff Guile.
