Thx. I played a ton of SF2, but only a few games of SF3. Still, I find it hard to believe that I can't find a flaw in the gameplay of these world class players. Couldn't chun li have launched a slow fireball from long range then attacked right as it was hitting or something




Chun Li was trying to guarantee the win as even a block from Ken would have meant a KO. The reason why Chun Li takes so long at the end to execute the move is because she is waiting for the right time to strike. The only thing Ken COULD do to survive was parry, and he pulled it off beautifully




The fireball part of my first post was a joke (in that I could see an 'easy win' option missed by a top notch player), though I was genuinely curious about the 'backwards kick'. Second post was all joke Like I said, I am out of my element completely with SF3 and understand that the chun li combo was a smart percentage play.

edit: my communication skills are poor tonight, hence multiple ninja edits and now this one, heh. Of course my humor is as strong as ever

If you liked the SF3 vid, then you'd probably like this: MvC2

Minesweeper video is amazing, but Tetris video just blows my mind. How have the Japanese not taken over the world yet?

LeapFrog,

mah bad. I was a bit of a SF3 nerd in college. Might have even been able to compete a bit but that died out.

also notable that the Chun player in the SF3 vid and the Cyclops player are the same dude.

it's a quake 3 trickjumping vid by one of the best trickjumpers. most of the stuff he does is ridiculously difficult, i've played quake 3 for a couple of years and i can't even finish some of the levels in the video let alone as fast and effortless as he does.
