usually Ryu, but also Blanka or Chun-Li...
Blanka was the bomb.
i classified 2nd in a tournament using blanka...
The guy with the stretchy arms and legs.
I dunno. I'm useless at computer games. I just liked it when he stretched. I found it sneaky.
let's not talk about being drunk.
was there actually any difference between Ryu and Ken? Or was it just down to haircuts?
Cool post Steve :)
Ken was my choice - slightly better than Ryu in my opinion.
I think ryu has a more powerful Hadouken, ken a more powerful Shoryuken...
why shouldn't we talk about being drunk?
I played Tekken.
my fave tekken character was yoshimitsu!...jin kazama too!...
I found this on Wikipedia:
"Both Ryu and Ken are practitioners of an extremely violent martial art, or ansatsuken (Japanese: 暗殺拳 murderous / assassin's fist), which incorporated the most violent techniques from a blend of four styles of martial arts, alongside a mysterious sure-killing technique called Shun Goku Satsu. Both Ryu and Ken learned their art from Gouken, who vowed to teach a less violent variation of the art created by his master Goutetsu which does not include the discipline's life-threatening techniques such as the Shun Goku Satsu.
While Ryu and Ken follow the same martial arts discipline, as the Street Fighter series evolved, the differences between the two characters was portrayed by their attacks: Ryu focused on technique while Ken opted for stylish unpredictability.
Ryu's normal attacks are slightly slower than Ken's, albeit straightforward. His special moves are more focused; Ryu inflicts damage with individual strikes rather than combinations. His Shoryuken does only one hit, so Ryu can effectively use this move at full power against airborne opponents, although Ken's is still much stronger since he follows the Shoryuu Pinciple. Ryu can dodge projectiles at the start of his Tatsu Maki Senpuu Kyaku maneuver and knocks an opponent down with one hit.
Ryu focuses more on the Hadou principle of Goutetsu-style Ansatsuken, which translates to him being very skilled with his usage of ki - Ryu has the most concentrated Hadouken amongst all "non-lethal" Goutetsu-style Asatsuken users, and only the "lethal style" Goutetsu-style Ansatsuken user, Akuma, can match and/or surpass Ryu's Hadouken in both gauge and concentrate in certain instances. Ryu is the only student of Gouken's style of Goutetsu-style Ansatsuken capable of using the Shakunetsu Hadouken with the greatest of care—ensuring that the surge still burns bright with flames, but won't result in immolation.
Ryu and Ken's duality is comparable with two real-life philosophical approaches to karate, and Japanese martial arts in general. Do and Jitsu, or The path/way, and method/technique. One is more for personal development (See judo) and the other is more for practical application (see jujitsu)."
You're a bunch of geeks. Let's just talk about being drunk.
let's talk about playing SFII while being drunk!
I used to be called a geek, but then I learnt how to kick everyone's ass with Marshall Law, and no-one dared call me a geek again. Until now ...
hmm, well I was always which ever cute girl character was available - thus preselecting my own defeat
que dramatic music
blankaaa, (my ex-girlfrien's name was blanka too, hehe)
zangief becouse he looked like a honky mr.t
i liked yoshimitsu. that 3-kick combo thing just looked cool...
Who was the guy with the steel bottom shoes?
le_hell, was the lovemaking "electric"?
yay i made a funny (to me anyway).
my friends and me used to do long tournament nights at tekken...i had studied a combo that raised energy to 0...in one combo!...one of my friends hated me for perfects!...:DDDDD
was that Jack?
No. He had japanese dress, and proper zori, but they were metal.
it was bioelectric
probably yoshimitsu then...
He was cool. You have to appreciate I was forced to play by by boyfriend, so I'd just have the metal shoe guy. I never bothered to learn his name, but I thought he was the coolest.
le_hell - lol
guy with shoes - heihachi?
mortal combat was better =P
which game had eddy,
the brazillian dance fighter
with the huge wang
if you select him with the circle button, you get it dressed as a 70's dancer...
i really wanted him to be great too, but he was just kind of crap to play with.
yep. that was my favorite
until soul caliber 3 came out
i forgot about that one.
it was no streets of rage...;)
hmmm. never played that.
kilik with soul caliber is unstoppable.
sorry, back to streetfighter 2
Ryu...Slow hadouken, followed with a spin kick into my opponent and then punch them w/ a shoryuken. Killer combination of skills. :)
i was always more of a button basher at sf2
street fighter-chun li
soul calibur 2-raphael or cassandra
dead or alive-tina
i'm a poor left handed cripple so i have to use quick characters to compensate for my sluggish right thumb.
