Loot Ninja's Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix Beta Impressions

"I spent a good deal of time the past week with the Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix Beta. I'm not typing that again, so I'll call it SSFIITHDR Beta from now on. That's just as hard to type. We'll figure something out.

If you're in your late 20's to early 30's, you grew up with Street Fighter II (and it's various iterations) in the arcades. I spent countless hours and thousands of quarters perfecting my fighting regimen. And trust me when I say I was damn good back then. When Street Fighter II was announced for the Xbox Live Arcade, I got all antsy in the pantsy. Sadly, the game didn't turn out to be the faithful recreation we had all hoped, mainly because of the controls with the difficult Xbox 360 D-pad. I was a bit skeptical at first when I heard Capcom would be turning the game into an HD Remix, mainly because of said controls. After spending a week with the game, I'm happy to report they did it right. The controls feel very solid using the left analog stick. Takes you back to rocking the joystick on the arcade machines of days past. You can customize the button layout to your liking, which is a huge plus since we're not working with 6 face buttons (I miss you, Sega Genesis 6-button controller)."

Remember the guy who would sit there on the machine for like 6 hours destroying all newcomers? Then he realized he was 27 years old and missed his shift at the Cinnabon?

I used to destroy people in the arcades with Street Fighter II. I won my first 11 matches online in the HD Remix Beta.

Practice, practice, practice :)

Learn what moves work, how to defend other character's special moves (in this case, it's one set), and practice stringing them together in combos. Check out YouTube for some combo videos if need to see them in action.
