I think I'm going to start recording sets
First vid up soon
i hate that i can manage to get randomed out by a cammy/yang/chun/sakura player in endless..and get so heated about it. I really need to work on those matchups so that type of shit never happens again. The fact that I continue to manage to lose against players that have absolutely no sense of footies or proper spacing and rely on gimmicks and random play is really frustrating. Sigh. I suck. I...
Makoto vs. Akuma
This match is hard if momentum isn’t on my side. Like, st. roundhouse can be whiffed punished with Makoto’s cr. strong and I think cr. fierce, the latter leading into a knockdown. I think Makoto’s one of those characters where st. roundhouse actually hits twice on her while blocking. On wakeup, I can do a tsrugi (jab or strong) to beat out demon flips, but I learned to not...

Ranked Mode shit
Makoto vs. Guy: Something I noticed in this match is his cr. fierce against backdashes. What was a little cool was that everytime I tried to backdash, I’d get hit on my recovery. I think I get tagged by this if I jump back in the corner as well. And his bushin flip is still annoying. Why am I losing to Goukens, I don’t know. Seems like it’s safer for him to rushdown in AE....
Just out of curiosity
Does anyone else think the Top 32 for SSF4 AE will be a lot better to watch that Top 32 Marvel? It’s only Top 64 and im getting bored
Execution Stuff: Part 3
cr. jab, s. jab, cr. short, hayate: Left = 60% Right = 80% st. jab, st. strong, hayate: Left = 90% Right = 80% st. fierce, hayate cancel, st. strong, hayate: Left = 10%, Right = 40% IA Tsrugi: Left = 80%, Right = 30% Okay, so i added the instant air axe kick to the mix because it was one of those moves i wasnt getting down consistently. It’s kinda tought getting it really close to the...
Makoto vs. Fei/Yun
Yun pressure is really hard to escape. What worked was spacing him out and beating dive kicks with st. strong. Point-blank, there’s not much Makoto can really do. If i can actually get on the offense and just scare him from pressing buttons, then I think I can win. Fei feels a bit easier to fight against, but thats still a bit of an overstatement. Mid-range game is really hard against both...
Execution Stuff: Part 2
Okay, I’m switching to learn Makoto. Lets see how this goes… These are the combos I usually want to go for in matches. I’ll add more to the list once I start playing the character more.. cr. jab, s. jab, cr. short, hayate: Left = 20% Right = 90% st. jab, st. strong, hayate: Left = 80% Right = 60% st. fierce, hayate cancel, st. strong, hayate: Left 50%, Right = 10% Obviously,...
Execution Stuff: Part 1
Performed 10 times on both sides cr. jab, cl. jab, cr. forward, rekka x3 (100% right, 70% left) cr. short x3, rekka x3 (80% right, 60% left) cr. jab, cl. jab, cr. forward, DP (30% right, 80% left) cr. jab, cl. jab, cr. forward, rekka x2, FADC, Ultra 2 (60% right, 0% left) This is something I’m working on in order to get my execution up to par. I know I’ve missed a lot of ultra...
I’m terrible at this matchup. Lost 10-1 against one. Must study. kbye
So umm, about this Xbox Live thing
feel free to add me: ThaBlackF1ash. I mostly play Bison and Yang. But I mess around with Chun, Akuma, Ryu, Balrog, Makoto, and maybe Ken.
First (Official) Day with Yang
Played a C+ ranked Ryu and a B rank Fei-Long. I managed to get punished for almost everything I did and I got pushed into the corner fairly quickly. I think at the moment, I’m still very defensive and not exactly confident in my offense. My block strings aren’t super tight honestly, so I got DP’d through a lot of stuff. I think i could play defensive, but i just have to make...
Playing Yang for the next 7 months
Yes, I’m a tier whore now. My execution isn’t up there yet, but I can hit the bnbs pretty consistently. I guess it’s around 75 to 80%. Ultra setups need work though. I’ll just watch videos and keep working on getting my hit confirms down before I jump online. We will see what happens..
I actually never even played in pools because I got so tired and my ride was waiting for me to leave. Everything got pushed back 2-3 hours, but my pool didn’t start until 11 PM. Only played 2 matches in casuals.

We In There for AE. =) RzO
So some of you guys thought I was salty about the twins in AE. And you’re right, I am. Fuck them characters. lool.. I haven’t honestly played enough of the twins to really sit here and do a writeup on the matchups and whatnot. So far, I’ve just been getting info from some other Dictator players and Japanese videos. I’ve also tried to work on punishes in training mode, but...

Why am I even still playing?
I was reading the editorial “inkblot” wrote a few days ago about the CEO and Revelations results this past weekend. Basically he expressed his disappointment of American players outside of Top 8/16/whatever that don’t really step up to be the best and let players that don’t even live in this country (ie, Japan) take our money. In short: most of America isn’t hungry to...

Thoughts on AE
Okay, time to get this off my chest. So I’ve been playing the game since Tuesday morning. I do like the pacing. Everyone I’ve played so far are either messing around with the new characters, or just stuck with their old mains. I played this one Yun that pretty much dominated with pressure strings and a lot of frame traps with his cl. strong and shoulders. Fuck that character. If that...
Nintendo won this year. They really surprised me with the stuff they came out with today. Really impressed.
A Year and some change with Super..
(Note: I’m usually wrong about certain things when it comes to SF talk, so please remember that I’m talking from personal experience. I’m no top player). Boy I’ll miss this game…kind of. It’s does feel exciting knowing in a few days we’ll be playing a semi-brand new Street Fighter. Getting a chance to sit down and play with the 4 new characters (Yun,...
Initial Thoughts on Makoto
Makoto is a very…interesting character to say the least. I find her to be a momentum-based character that relies a lot on conditioning and mixups to deal most of her damage. In a sense, she can be considered a very “high-risk, high reward” character. Coming from characters like Chun-Li and M. Bison, it was very difficult for me to adjust to her walk speed and figure out a good...
Move to AE
So I guess this my official move from Wordpress to Tumblr. I had another Wordpress blog with the same name, but Tumblr has been taking up most of my time and I never write in the other one anymore. S Okay, so I’ve been playing Street Fighter 4 competitively for the past 2.5 years. I’ve always played fighting games as a kid, but not to the point where I wanted to learn these games at a...
