    Was pulling my hair out trying to do Bison's ultra in Arcade Mode only to find out the input on SRK's strategy guide is wrong.

    So, general question. I never played SF3 except for a handful of times when it first hit arcades. Is the feel of Third Strike comparable to any of the X-Men/Marvel games of the time period? Obviously some of the major mechanics are different, but, I dunno, is it comparable at all? Like, I really like the way Ken plays in MvC 1 and 2, but just couldn't get a feel for him in SF4. I dunno. Maybe I should just look up videos, huh?

    I believe the u2 motion changed between super and AE

    $31? Ehhhh :(.

    Maybe I'm just cheap.

    Correct.

    I have no idea why this happened. It was his biggest nerf, despite the damage increase they gave it to try and compensate.

    I vastly preferred the old method.

    Yeah, Amazon price matches it too.

    I might just troll around local Gamestops.

    Not urgent. How many of you even play PS3 MvC? :)

    I would play it if asked and I'd like to consider myself "alright" at the game but i feel like it's too stressful/frustrating to take seriously at a high level, lol. Realizing that the person you're fighting has a DHC trick setup is like a punch to the stomach.

    It is $50 used at gamestop.

    Your best bet might be trolling ebay or Craigslist?

    Yeah, I started watching some already. I guess I was wondering if there were similarities just based on that trailer for the new version and the general time period, but it's clear from these other videos that it's pretty different. I'll probably still give it a shot. Also, it looks like a lot of people played Ken competitively, so I'll have to find some other random bullshit character.

    My team doesn't use the DHC trick, but can still kill in one combo :D

    No Phoenix, though, so I am forever doomed not to win a tourney.

    You still use Abel, right?

    I need match xp against him, turtle / reactive Vipers, turtle Sagats, and turtle Sakura's.

    third strike is much, much harder than SF4.

    like it's an entire game that is different even before parrying. and parrying changes everything.

    You know what's weird

    Everyone says st is hardest, then 3s is kind of hard, and ssf4 is easy

    But I'm awesome at st, decent at 3s and ass at ssf4

    What the hell is that

    you are gootecks.

    nah but really i think gootecks main problem in ssf4 is that he thinks waaay to much and tries to be very smart. Doesn't actually work that way a lot of times in ssf4. I.E. Mike Ross's commet about dumbing it down a lot of the time.

    it DOES however work in 3s it looks like. which is probably why he loves 3s so much

    It's a really terrible matchup for her, since she can't be offensive, like, at all due to all your different ways of safe wakeups.

    Yeah, that's why I was telling you..the best way to play against any Bison is very defensive and to punish him / bait him into a focus and punish....while remembering not to focus right next to him. You have to be just beyond his standing roundhouse, basically.

    Neutral jumps can work unless I predict / reflex the shit out of you, too.

    If you attack me and you don't have a dive kick, I'll eat you alive. Unless you're using safe EX moves like Balrog can or FADC sakura's SRK, etc, but Balrog vs Bison really is meter management by the 'Rog.

    Yep, but I had to test everything for myself. I beat you that one match that I just went balls to the wall defensive, and correctly guessed your shit, but I wanted to try other things. I'm confident I can continue to win matches by blocking and punishing, but again, part of learning the matchup is also learning what other shenanigans can be done besides turtle it up.

    It's also VERY difficult to block your dash + grab on reflex online. Bison isn't the only character that has this advantage. :)

    Currently going through a character crisis so i'm torn between ryu and sakura and possibly others. I have learned pretty much everything there is to Abel from a pure execution standpoint so he's still in my pocket with the most experience. How have the twins been treating you, lul?

    Scary thing is that works at tournaments in person, too :). Bison is just so fast.

    Most of the people suck with them and attack too much. EX Psycho Crusher is also a projectile so it wins over the palm :). Hahahaha..

    The few who are good are scary, though. Do not let these people hit you :(.

    Bison is actually a decent match up versus them, though.

    Hey me too! I think I'm just going to play marvel for a while and maybe come back to sf4 later. I dabbled with yang for a little bit but I miss honda's hands. Dive kick isn't nearly as fun.
