    I have no PS3 fighting games, so I'm putting this new stick through its paces with Symphony of the Night.

    Maybe I'll try to grind out some Heavy Rain after that.

    I forget who gave the advice to break in my hitbox this way, but someone suggested Pacman Collectors Edition

    and damn is that game fun. though i guess that doesn't break in your buttons, just your directional

    I'm doing the challenges and some of them I just have issues with and they're not even that hard?

    Ryus cr.mp, cr.mp, cr.hk. I can't do it. My thumbs are too slow/dumb.

    It's about timing

    The moves don't naturally chain together, there's a very small window where the next hit will combo

    You want to hit cr.mp then hit your next cr.mp right when the animation is finished. Same with the cr.rh

    Start with the two mps. If your second one didn't come out, you were too fast. If it came out but the dummy blocked it, you were too slow

    I'm having trouble doing one of Codys ones mainly cause I can't reliably ex zonk punch.

    Just hold down any two punches, then let go when you want ex zonk

    Say you want to do cr.mp xx ex zonk, you'd hold down lp and hp then as your cr.mp is hitting, release lp and hp

    Aye i've been holding down lp and mp and hitting hp for the combo but I guess i'm just not pressing them right.

    You could be canceling at the wrong time
    In this case, don't wait for the hp to finish. Release zonk as soon as t hits

    The combo is j.hp, st.hp ex zonk into ex criminal upper

    When I'm not fighting a training dummy I just start to freak out.

    Are you playing arcade mode? They aren't anything to feel bad about, they're programmed to react to everything you do so just sit back and let them walk up and then do cr. hk (or cr. hp if you're playing Makoto) if you really wanna beat 'em.

    Against people though, I used to do that pretty bad, and really you just wanna play consciously, actively tell yourself what you wanna do, or go into a match trying to do a single thing (this thing could be "I wanna land this hit confirm" or "I wanna anti air every time he jumps in on me" or it could be "I don't wanna wake up into some dumb again") and that thing might not necessarily allow you to win a match and that's fine! You're not at EVO! You're playin' us randoms online!

    The only way to get over that is to fight more folks. Don't worry about winning. Just focus on making one good decision during the round. Anti-air a jump in. Tech a throw. Block a mixup. Focus a projectile. Cancel a normal into a special. Hit a link. Then after you can make one every round, make another one. Then make a bunch of them. Still use practice mode to grind combos and test setups and punishes, the muscle memory stuff, but use real people to practice thinking.

    Playing arcade mode is actually really useful and I don't think enough people do it

    Arcade mode lets you practice combos and setups on a moving target, plus it will get you out of the habit of doing unsafe things really quickly because they will all be punished. Also the cpu loves to throw dumb shit out all goddamn day, so you get good practice punishing unsafe shit. Playing against hardest cpu gief will teach you really really quickly exactly where the spd ranges you need to avoid are.

    It can teach you bad habits and there aren't footsies or mixups involved at all, but it has a place

    Back when we used to marathon AE lobbies when I was playing, I'd drill arcade mode against Balrog every once in a while

    it would result in me actually taking a match or two off of Knob out of the 20 we'd play

    arcade mode works wonders
