Weekly Screenshot: Shoryu Shoryu!!

Whoever comes up with the best title gets to nominate two MatchVid of the Day candidates. As always, the rules are one entry per person and i’ll choose my favorite on Tuesday.


SFA2 Ryu’s Custom Combo mode MP Shoryuken mirrors Ken’s lvl1 Shinryuken super.

Here are some alternate variants i captured before settling on the final version above:




When Ryu drifts into Ken’s Shinryuken hitbox, he dies and the round ends, but not until after the lifebars disappear and the super flash screen appears.

    Does anyone else remember seeing the first SFA2 preview screenshots in GameFan magazine and thinking, “They gave Ryu a Dragon Punch super?!? AWESOME!!”?

    • killweir says:

      I don’t remember thinking that but I was more concerned about the “super walking” animations.

    Battle of the Human Lightning Rods

    Also, never noticed Ken moves backward a little during Shinryuken…

    “I heard if we do this with 88 seconds on the clock, we end up in 1985 again!”

  9. Moony says:

    “The Sheng Long Special.”
    How will any of Ryu’s opponents stand a chance?

    “Learning Shin Shoryuken.”
    With a little practice he’ll have three supers by alpha 3.

    How about…

    “Shoryu Shoryu!!!!”

    Lol that commentator was hillarious…

  11. SofaKingAC says:

    “You’re doing it wrong!”

    Could work for either one of them I suppose.

  12. Stumblebee says:

    I Call This: “The 80’s Movie Ending”

    (Note: All one title)

    “Driving Sides and Dragon Punches”

  15. jchensor says:

    “Practicing for Dramatic Battle.”

    That’s my official entry. I almost wanted to say:

    “When ShinSho Met(su) ShinRyu”

    …but that’s horrid.

  16. EA575 says:

    That screenshot is godlike

    “The Legendary Rising Dragons”

  17. Maj says:

    Lots of great suggestions this time around, but i couldn’t help it. That commentator was indeed awesome, and it’s very fitting considering the prize.

    yungxcve: Congratulations, you get to choose two match videos to be featured on ComboVid during the next week or so. The only restriction is that they must be uploaded to the proper channels – either belonging to the event organizers or to one of the players. (I don’t want to support people who try to get attention by ripping stream matches or stealing from other websites.)

      Awesome. I nominate Sako’s Cammy vs Daigo’s Ryu at Godsgarden’s second online tournament.

      http://www.ustream.tv/recorded/9833505 (skip to 1:08:45)

      Sako’s my favorite offensive mastermind while Daigo’s an overall mastermind of Street Fighter.

      I’ll try and nominate another by the end of the day.

    • Maj says:

      Haha i don’t know if it’s a good idea to embed an hour and a half long video, but i’m down to try it once.

    The second video I nominate is from the EVO 2010 event held this summer. It was a loser’s bracket battle featuring Infiltration (Akuma) Vs. Shizza (Chun-Li)


    I chose it for the double K.O. and the chip super FTW.

    I dont know what is up with the commentators for that match though, sounds sped up or something. Pretty funny added bonus if you ask me.
