I went to LoveGety arcade located in Richmond Hill last night to check out Super Street Fighter: Arcade Edition. This was a new experience for me because I never grew up in the era of arcades in Toronto. Well to be honest I did, but I was quite young at the time and didn’t have anyone to take me to arcades at the age of 10.
Thus far, I’ve only ever played competitive fighting games at arcades when I was in Hong Kong this summer but that was Soul Calibur 3. Due to the fact that it isn’t as popular a game anymore, there wasn’t much competition unlike last night. I found it a lot of fun to be able to socialize with people while watching others play. It made the hour long wait times to get a chance to even touch the cab much more bearable. Playing itself wasn’t even as nerve wracking because I knew the majority of people there.
Testing Rose out, I’m rather disheartened with the nerf on her U2. The lack of invincibility makes it impossible to use as a defensive technique on wakeup now. I’m pretty sure my heart broke every time I tried to use it out of habit and just ended up eating damage. I’m also fairly certain that I let out a couple anguished cries as well.
If I choose to stick with her when AE gets released on console, I’ll have to start using it in a more offensive manner instead. I’ll try testing some things out on Super to see how I can do this and make it work.
