    Just saw someone mention that in the comments on this (hour long) Castle Super Beast clip a few minutes ago, I'm glad to see it was as dumb as was relayed.

    I was going to just sort of try not to think about SF6 until release, maybe play some Strive, but then Woolie and Pat talked about how rad it is in all ways for an hour while reminding me of how much I hate getting into matches in Strive and now I'm like, hm, well, I guess I could play the demo even though I don't play Ryu or Luke...

    The Tekken instagram accidently posted the new character trailer super early, which means we get a funny Harada twitter post.

    My stick arrived today.

    Its nothing special (Mayflash 300) but after a small adjustment period I was comfortable.

    Fired up the copy of SFV i haven’t played in years, spent some time training then some causal matches. Won more than I lost.

    I have some bad habits that have either crept back or I never got rid of: Button mashing (like I’ll tap a punch button 3 times to do a basic 2 hit medium/shoryuken combo), tensing up, etc. I’ll be spending a few days in SFV trying to uncrease those wrinkles before 6 hits.

    I will say, after 2 entires and dozens of hours trying to make the dpad work, I was right back at home on the arcade stick. Just felt great.

    I'm so bad about button mashing that it's hard for me to become aware of or control double tapping buttons, even when I'm sitting there actively thinking about it.

    Sometimes I'll see the extra presses pop up in the feed and feel certain I didn't do it until I repeat it a few times.

    Yeah I spent some time stopping my button mashing when I play Souls and Monster Hunter, but something about that arcade stick just brought me back.

    And remembering how people would just palm swipe the buttons back and forth during MvC2 supers.

    If you need to change your resolution press E in the graphics settings. Mouse clicking foesn’t work.

    So yeah, I went from not being able to win a single fight for a long time in the ranked matches (or maintain any kind of league points at all) to going straight to Bronze in about 13 fights.

    The stick really does make a difference, and I feel the tensing up kind of resolving itself?

    Either way I think I'm going Juri in SF6. There's just something kind of satisfying about how she's based entirely on denial of options, rather than rushdown or zoning. It's cerebral as hell and requires you to really read your opponent, not just what their character is, and I enjoy that a lot.

    I'll be working on the combos since I imagine they won't be markedly different in SF6.

    It feels weird to be excited for a fighting game release, given how little luck I've always had with non-Smash fighting games in the past. I did have a pretty good time messing around with Juri during the open beta, though.

    I ended up using Classic controls, since even as a total novice who watched a couple of guide videos I could feel how gutted her neutral was on Modern. I drop inputs way too often (especially DPs), and I haven't even started learning how to use Drive Rush yet (much less Feng Shui Engine), but I was actually winning most of the matches I got from randos interrupting my training. Admittedly, a lot of that was throwing out hard read Drive Impacts and praying, but it was something.

    In the last few hours of the open beta, I tried ranked on a lark. Unfortunately for me, I somehow managed to win nine out of ten placement rounds (and the one loss was against a CPU, of all things), which resulted in me getting horribly misplaced in Gold. I absolutely did not win any sets against gold opponents (in fact I doubt I won more than 5-10% of rounds), and it didn't seem like it was possible to rank down no matter how many consecutive losses I had, so that's a scary prospect for the full release if it doesn't change. At least most of the losses weren't quite so horrible that I couldn't learn anything from them, and I occasionally managed to beat a Silver player here and there.

    I'm looking forward to checking out Marisa when the full release happens. Maybe Cammy too, although the footage I've seen of her was so fast-paced that I'm worried she'll be too hard for me to play. Depends on how the inputs actually work, I guess. (EDIT: Oh, Hooligan followups are just buttons, apparently! We're back in business!)

    To be honest, I think I might have had more fun screwing around with Giovanna in a Strive network test than Juri in the Street Fighter open beta (one button cancellable dash is too good), but my prospects trying to learn Street Fighter on day one are probably about a hundred times better than trying to learn Strive two years in.

    The slowdown on counter-Drive Impacts are soooo satisfying. It's the game saying "Here, someone fucked up".

    You can pre-load SF6 now on Steam if it's already in your library.

    Melty stream was basically just a live patch notes reading/demo with the devs, character announcement coming at Evo. Bunch of random buffs, but nothing that looks too crazy/impactful tbh

    Patch is up on steam already, not sure about console.

    I kind of want that Undernight rumor to be true.

    Characters were a lot more interesting to me in that game but no rollback.

    Polyfil/tape modding the stick definitely quieted it down.

    I've also got some Sanwa silents (gen 2) in the mail. Hopefully I never have to open it ever again.
