Shiki Guile re: Nakamura Cammy link
"Huh, so Nakamura at Mikado is a Cammy player. I guess people already know this, but that guy is really impressive. I'd say that his sense, spacing and tactics are all first rate. He might not stand out since he uses a weak character like Cammy, but when his Ryu and Ken get rolling you're in deep shit. I'd like to see him use Chun. I don't usually engage in hyperbole but as far as it goes, I think that Nakamura really has the "power." I'm not just blowing smoke here. ..."

  1. I think Inomata deserves a spot up there among the T.Hawk players. That dude is freaking scary.

  2. Poor DeeJay doesn't even have an entry. Why are there so few DJ users?

  3. inomata for a top hawk agreed

  4. please can you start the monthly SSF4 AE tourny results again like back with SF4. its unfair you only do stuff for ST, which i am very gratful for. but we SSF4 fans deserve some love too:(

  5. heh me being optimistic was just wishful thinking, but that would be great if you started the results again. but if it takes/took too much of your time, i would also understand if you couldnt. thanks either way:)
