desk vs desk
yeah, I couldn't think of a good title.
I guess this is natural progression from all the one handed stuff. Dual character, choreographed set-ups and combos. Very silly (and pointless, as always) but it was fun to make and I'm pretty happy with how it turned out.
Ryu vs Ken:
The fireball exchanges are pretty straight forward but the parry spacing and timing on Ryu's jump in into the target combo xx Tatsu were pretty difficult to coordinate. The ken cr.MK was added to make the whole thing a bit busier and more natural. Bonus, frustrated mashing when Ken realizes he's done.
Makoto vs Makoto:
Exploiting the fact that EX.Hayates can travel through each other and Makoto's momentary invincibility, post neutral throw. It was way more difficult than I thought it was going to be to simply perform the same move with both hands at the same time. Swapping sides but remaining coordinated also made my head hurt.
Chun Li vs Hugo:
Basically an excuse to show the Hugo combo. Red parrying Chun SA2 so the left hand had something to do. Also, all EX moves are hella more difficult with this set-up because of how strict 3s is (and the whole, onyl using one hand thing).
Remy vs Dudley:
Some counter quirkiness into Dudley juggles. Lefty knows he's done and checks his phone.
Makoto vs Ken:
A tribute to the 'Invincible Makoto' section of 'Vid of Dreams'. Using SA3 and nuetral throws for hardcore, cross through action. Ken attempts to block the final hits but he can't because it's a full on, legit combo and all that.
Remy vs Oro:
Remy repeatedly attempts to dash up and throw Oro and get's it 2nd time, much to the frustration of righty. Then follows up with SA1. A stupid meaty st.LP is parried and leads to Oro unblockable set-up. Remy blocks the correct way at first but to no avail. The 2nd time he parrys 2 hits and is thrown. Rock!
Ryu vs Dudley:
The intial Dudley combo was super difficult with the left hand, then Ryu parrys a few frames before the super flash (it's as if he knew!). Ryu then uses the dudley specific quirk of being OTG-able post throw.
I wanted to parry the super while mashing with my other hand. Is anyone sick of seeing this evo moment being recreated in increasingly silly ways? well, that's too bad because here's one more.
I thought maybe I could turn this into a series, playing different games in each episode. However, without the parry mechanic, it seems kind of pointless. Having said that, if anyone has any ideas for other games that might work, let me know. Would be fun to do another edition at some point.
Thanks for watching + reading!
