I did okay for my first tournament. I got 5-0 in the placement pool and then went into final 16 in the top 8. Then I lost to the fat loud annoying shoutcaster who played Balrog, and then I had a bye in the loser's bracket since I was 5-0 before, and then I lost to the main tournament organizer who played Dhalsim. Both times I won one match and then just got played stupid and impatient and lost. My whole problem is that I'm so used to playing online that all my links and bnb combos weren't coming out since I had to delay all my inputs and change all my timings, and it was really really really hard to get used to. Plus everything was held on CRTs so it felt even more different. Overall I probably got like 10th-12th or something out of I think 42 entrants, so that's not too bad for my first ever tournament, especially considering there were good players there like Wolfkrone.

Anyways, here's some feeds of AE matches with a few characters from a team battle (I think I saw Fei Long, Honda, Ibuki, Ryu, Zangief, Viper, Dudley, Adon and Yun). Yun looks pretty cool from the vids, though I'm looking forward to seeing better players with all of these characters as I don't think these guys are very good. I think I'm gonna pick up Yang too and try to seriously learn him since I've always liked the way he looks, though I am scared of very input-heavy characters (even though Akuma is). I don't think he's as good as Yun but oh well.... I'm sure EVERYONE will be playing with Yun.

edit: I'd say scratch that last set of videos and watch this one. Mike Ross with Honda vs. Marn with Yun http://www.eventhubs.com/news/2010/dec/ ... e-matches/ His Yun looks pretty good if you want to see his potential. Watch the beginning of the second video to see that super corner pressure daaaaaang. Daigo and some other top Japanese players I think have picked him up to main.

Lo siento, I went with Brent (immortalbmw) and two other duders from Fort Wayne. I guess I figured you would be working or in Indy. I know we are probably getting together for some local competition next Saturday night (not christmas, but after that). They've got some good players, so I'ma try to get out more and play so I can get used to non-lag conditions. But yeah I will play some gamez whenever over the break, just let me know when and I'll see if I can.

100 mins of new character footage, including a lot of Makoto footage up first (also starts off the second video). Her dash is craaaazy fast now. She's looking a lot more solid now. Merk will have a good time with Super Third Strike Fighter 4 this time around with good Makoto, Yun, and Yang. Dudley got better too, though not as drastically as anybody else.

Pretty impressive Yun:

Haven't found any videos of good Yang players yet. Looking forward to seeing Daigo's Yun and other top players.

Edit: here's Jwong playing Yang against Mike Ross' Blanka: http://shoryuken.com/content/eg-justin- ... ew_comment At the end of the last video especially it looks like he's got some nice potential for crazy mixups. I like his hit confirms into rekka slashes too. Dive kick pressure might make him kind of an easy transition to make from Akuma if I decide to mess with him some. I really wanna try him!

A lot of footage here, specifically Yun starting at around 32:00 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E2PWSlg0 ... r_embedded

Super Street Figher IV on PS3 is only $18 on Newegg. I might consider buying it.

That is true, because PS3 network is terrible. I play both versions on my internet (same setup and connections) and it is near unplayable on PSN. The rest of the game is 1 or 2 frames laggier too.

Anyways, I'm excited for this:

SooooooOOOOOOOOOO sick. It looks more like Oni is an amalgamation of Gouken, Yang and Akuma all thrown in a blender. He looks the most like Gouken actually... Goukuma!

His ultra animations look awesome though. I'm thinking of making the switch from Akuma to Oni what with the high HP, similar style, and overall cool aesthetic. I am so reckless with Akuma and try too hard for fancy combos and usually eat it, and maybe without all the risky things like whiffed roundhouses I might play smarter lol.... Evil Ryu is basically Akuma with an extra attack or two and comboable ultras. From the reports I've gathered, it doesn't make normal Ryu obsolete as this one takes a lot more damage and is more offensive and if you guess wrong you're screwed. So it sounds like these guys are pretty balanced and not going to be tourney banned. I'm excited I want AE so bad =(

Ultra animations - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GY1mi28a ... r_embedded

Both have demons as super. Oni's U1 can be aimed three directions (including straight up)

Some gameplay vids - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z8UDRXmitfY / http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I6_gK4MRJlc / http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_gyJkDQ8Q3s / http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rLGD3HpBRR8

AIR DEMON and target combos, FADC into U1 - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pdppjvN7XwE
Running through some of both characters' normals - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jb8I9xHzwSk

Oni is soooooo my new main. Everyone says he plays nothing like Akuma and looks like a mix of Gouken and Akuma, it's not really even certain that he IS Akuma. Looks more like Evil Gouken. Initial reports say that these guys aren't even that good compared to the main cast, but Oni's just so cool that I have to try him.

I'm guessing there are going to be 2 more characters that haven't been revealed yet, but were rumored from awhile back to fill out the select screen.

I feel you on Akuma. Since I play both Ibuki and Akuma I'm used to low health and punishes meaning so much more.

Yang's my man, though.
I really love CS:GO's 64 tick servers.

I wonder if it will be another pair. Yun/Yang, Evil/Oni, Juli/Juni, Poison/Hugo, Hugo/Rolento.
