I feel pretty good right now. I unlocked Akuma and Gouken last night, and today I got my very first win on Xbox Live! I was using Zangief and my opponent was using Sagat. That matchup seems pretty rough, but luckily the Sagat player didn’t really know what he was doing. But hey, a win is a win, right?
I’m not sure of the actual matchup statistics, but it seems like a pretty bad fight for Gief. I know EX Green Hand goes through projectiles, but s. hk seems pretty hard to get around. I’m probably not being patient enough.
I also started going through the “challenges” for Ryu, and I’m stuck on this combo:
f + hp
The f+hp, c. hp link is pretty rough and if I manage to get it, a fireball or super fireball comes out afterwards instead of an uppercut. I guess I have to move the stick from down to forward (from c. hp > shoryuken) and avoid the df otherwise it registers as two quarter circles and does a super fireball?
