    SC5 Setsuka

    I will let the image, and thread, speak for itself. One interesting thing about this CAS, when you do her right side throw, she actually says 'just die'.

    The real final boss of SC5 is... (spoiler alert)

    ... MCZ Kayane. I am in awe of how CLOSE Namco got this AI Leixia (who is named MCZ Kayane in Quick Battle - word for word) to the playstyle of the real Kayane. She makes full use of her safe advancing kicks and can punish like an effer. The only thing missing is the BE whoring. :p You had to...

    The Street Fighter (Mini Webisodes)

    Episode 1 Initial Thoughts: Surprisingly a really fantastic start. I had really mediocre expectations on this from the trailer, but they really invested on the acting and plot here (perhaps even more than stuff about the game itself). For a no-low budget film, good acting and plot is saying...

    Okay, as Evo is coming up this week (get hype), I feel that this discussion will provide some food for thought for the vast pool of players competing in the tournament. Now, I've heard all the thrash talking between the top players, the repping from the different regions, the, forgive me...

    Picking up Setsuka (ie: I've officially gone mad)

    Hey guys, so as I apparently have a knack of picking up characters with insanely difficult movelists, I've decided to pick up Setsuka as a 2nd main/secondary. Probably will not even get her up to par in time for Evo; this is just moreso for the fun of it (and taking a break from the full-time...

    May be an industry first, or an industry classic

    Capitalizing on release much? Feb 27 release. o.O I didn't know the movie industry would... ehem... resort to such tactics to sell a movie.

    Spacing & Sidestep-Catching

    Hi guys! So as I'm continuing to study/master Ivy; I've been racking my brain in trying to find out her best counter-step moves. I think it's particularly tricky with Ivy since you have to have a good anti-step or two for each stance. o.o; The problem is, each stance's anti-step is not as...

    Wreaking Havoc in Wolfkrone: The anti-Hilde thread

    Well, since the whole banning talks are now over, I'm guessing its now time to find out what actually works AGAINST this goddess of a character. I'l give out my own opinions, people can tell me if I'm right or wrong on these and can add their own as well. 1. Throws work to an -extent-...
