I loved how the crowd freaked out during the SF one. Also the Mario run was impressive...the guy was spot on every move/jump. And yes that Tetris was just insane.

The Mario run has to be tool assisted. I wouldn't trust most videos without the split screen showing the actual players (like they have in the Street Fighter vid).

It has been a long long time since I played SF, but couldn't chun li have ended it when she jumped over ken, ie with a 'backwards' kick? You can jump over a dude and then change direction (in the air) and kick in SF right? Obv you can in MK and maybe that is screwing my mem. Maybe the dude would have blocked it, though if he did it when ken was punching it would be GO... Also, can't chun li throw fireballs?

Five minute Mario shouldn't be that hard, back when I was in college there was a whole bunch of us who spent a week trying to finish Mario on an original Nintendo, no emulation, and we could get it down to I believe somewhere around 5 and a half minutes. I wouldn't doubt that if you spent even more time on it that you could carve another 15 seconds or so off of that time, it's really much easier than it looks.

You can cross someone up but the animation doesnt turn iirc. Regardless you have to kick deep to cross someone up and chun li couldnt do that.

Those are way easier to parry. Chun's super at the end should have by all means locked up the win.

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 [img]/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

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
