Hidden YouTube, Crouching SSF4: AE

I came across Illevate's YouTube Channel thanks to jman2050 on NeoGAF, that contains a ton of SSF4:AE matches under 50 views each. This can only mean one thing: you haven't seen them yet. More than that, there is a real good mix of characters such as Makoto, Gen, Claw and more. Worth checking out if you're looking for some new AE vids to peep. 

I've embedded a video below, and if you're looking for more YT Channels with AE footage, check out our Master List by clicking here.

SSF4: AE and the Return of the Arcade Scene

It's all too easy to forget about the arcade scene with the ease and convenience of playing online and well, the fact that SSF4 was only on console to begin with, leaving Vanilla SF4 and the arcade scene in the dust. With the release of SSF4: AE, everything has changed, and once again, players both old and new get to experience that "arcade feeling".

Playing at MGL a few days ago reminded me of one crucial factor about playing at arcades: you simply level up much faster in this sort of atmosphere. 

But why? Isn't online or even local casual play just as effective?

Day 1 SSF4: AE at Milpitas Golfland and BLG Filipino Champ's 28 Win Streak

Here in NorCal Milpitas Golfland received Super Street Fighter 4: Arcade Edition on Thursday so RogerDodger and myself rolled down there with a camera to check it out and record some footage. We arrived around 8PMish and there were easily 30 people waiting to play, which resulted in about a 2 hour wait to play one game. This was partly due to the fact that there is an issue with Sunnyvale Golfland's SSF4:AE machine -- you can currently only play the CPU, though I've heard this will be resolved in a week or two -- resulting in everyone high tailing it to MGL to play the game. One cab for the entire Norcal SF scene just isn't enough.

Some big names were in the house such as John Choi, Ricky Ortiz, Crackfiend, Lamerboi, LPN, Crizzle, Buktooth and even Seth Killian, just to name a few. Another top player you may have heard of, BLG Filipino Champ, was also in attendance, and once he got on the machine, well, he didn't get off until they shut the joint down. He went on a 28 win streak with Dhalsim, and outside of a handful of matches, none of them were even close.

Zak Bennett Talks Balrog Changes in SSF4: AE

Zak Bannett who is one of the UK's most well known players put together a great write up for Neo Empire about the changes Balrog received in SSF4:AE. While many players have thought the changes to be fairly minor, Zak has completely different take on it, saying the increase on recovery for 'Rogs headbutt is a "massive issue" that will have a big impact on his overall game. 

That said, don't panic just yet. He mentions that much like many other characters in the game, Capcom has put a more offensive spin on Balrog's play style, mainly due to his new Close Standing Medium punch. This apparently opens up a whole new can of whoop ass for Boxer, and he put together a solid list of combos surrounding the adjusted move to check out as well. 

Below is a short chunk from the write up, but don't miss the rest over at Neo Empire.

Nemo Playing Yang in SSF4:AE - First Look at Seiei Enbu

Tokido uploaded a few videos of Nemo playing Yang, and while in one video he gets blown up by a True SRK, in the other he gives us our first look at Seiei Enbu. Comboing from the TC into Seiei Enbu takes off a good 40%, though it starts to scale heavily later on. That said, stopping and going for a reset looks like the way to finish things -- just one overhead into a short takes off another 15% easy. 

This makes me really curious to see more advanced Yang Seiei Enbu combos and set ups as I feel he is being brushed aside as the weaker twin compared to Yun. Hopefully we'll see more footage soon. Check out both videos after the break.

New Batch of SSF4:AE Direct Feed Videos from GAME a-cho

GAME a-cho uploaded a new set of SSF4:AE direct feed footage, and well, I hope we have some Guile players in the audience because you'll see a lot of him in this first video! Later on there is more character variety though, so if you get tired of the boom chuckin' you can always skip through the videos a bit.  The second video has a bit more character variety, than the first one, though there are a bunch of Fei Long matches scattered through out. Enjoy!
