Gamest Cup Video 050394

For the Super Turbo national championship, Gamest Magazine and Capcom teamed up to run qualifiers all over Japan and the top 16 players faced off to vie for the top spot. Foosuke had been using DeeJay as his anchor on the road to the finals but he busted out a not-so-secret weapon in the last game.


Katou "Foosuke" vs. Okunishi "Ikuradon"

Here are a couple of pictures from the event:
Ikuradon (in black) during the quarterfinals.

Master Foosuke wins the Gamest Cup. (Check out the Gamest slogan on the woman's blazer.)

Special thanks to Fran and Gemant.

On a not-entirely-unrelated note, I uploaded a bunch of X-Mania 2k1 and X-Mania 3 videos to YouTube. Link on left sidebar.

Neo Star Cup 07 Results

72 entrants.

1st: Tsuji (Boxer x2, Fei-Long)
2nd: Futachan (Ryu x3)
3rd: Otochun (Chun-Li x2, Ryu)
4th: YuuVega (Dictator x2, DeeJay)

For the second to last round, they had players list whom they'd like to fight against and paired them off accordingly -- i.e. based on mutual eagerness to battle. YuuVega and Otochun tied for least popular while almost everybody wanted a crack at TIO (who, fwiw, repped Kyushu hard by making top 8.)

The night before the tourney there was a 2 on 2 event that Gotoh and Taira took. Movies of that should be forthcoming.

Sengoku BASARA X Scoop - Hideyoshi & Tadakatsu

Honda Tadakatsu

Tadakatsu's normal attacks are slow but they have super armor.

Engo Keitai press E
Use Engun Attack to fire off laser beams. More beams at higher levels.

Kougeki Keitai: Tsujou Dan ↓↘→ + attack
Tadakatsu fires out a pair of bombs in an arc. If you use this move when your Engun is ready to go, you can lock-on and fire directly at your opponent.

Kougeki Keitai: Jigen Dan →↓↘ + attack
Tadakatsu throws a pair of bombs that explode after a time delay.

Kougeki Keitai: Fuyuu Kirai ↓↙← + attack
This move is available only when your Engun is ready. Another pair of bombs -- these float in the air and explode if your opponent touches them.

Hikou Keitai ←↓↙ + A
When your Engun is ready, use this to make Tadakatsu hover in the air for a set period of time. He can air dash and attack freely.

Sakugan Chokka →↘↓↙← + B while airborne
Tadakatsu falls out of the sky and hits multiple times.

Tosshin Keitai ↓↘→↓↘→ + C
Charging drill attack. Slow to start up but does good damage and guard crush. Engun Assist OK.

Denji Keitai ↓↙←↓↙← + C
Tadakatsu creates an electrical field that pulls his opponent in. Another slow attack with super armor.

Sengoku Saikyou - Saidai Shutsuryoku ↓↙←↙↓↘→ + C
Basara one-hit kill.

Engun Attack
Tadakatsu calls out Tokugawa Ieyasu, who helps him fire lasers (see above.) Sometimes, however, Ieyasu gets kidnapped by ninjas!

Toyotomi Hideyoshi

Although weaponless, Hideyoshi has some decent reach with his normal attacks. He can't use chain combos, however.

Denkou Rekki ↓↘→ + C
Command grab. Hideyoshi drags his opponent along the ground and then flings them into the air. Follow up with a Tenchi Sousou.

Tenchi Sousou →↓↘ + C
Hideyoshi grabs his opponent out of the air and slams them into the ground where they'll be vulnerable to additional hits.

Ifuubanjou ↓↙← + C (hold)
A field of energy appears in front of Hideyoshi that hits his opponent and reflects projectiles.

Haja Shouten ↓↙← + B
Rapid fire punches. Press heavy attack to add a final strike that knocks down.

Kaijin Ranka ↓↘→ + A or B
Hideyoshi charges forward and grabs his opponent. Super armor on the initial rush. Weak version grabs standing characters, medium version grabs crouching ones.

Kongou Hametsu ↓↙←↓↙← + C
Big uppercut attack that dizzies when it hits. Engun Assist OK.

Enbugouhaku ↓↘→↓↘→ + C
Super command grab. Press the weak, medium and heavy buttons with the proper timing to bash your opponent up to three times.

Hadou Tenshou ↓↙←↙↓↘→ + C
Basara one-hit kill. A giant pillar of flame blasts Hideyoshi's opponent off the screen.

Engun Attack
Takenaka Hanbei slashes with his sword. Extra hits (up to three) at higher levels.

ST Vid - The Auto Mix-up

I was chatting about some SSF2T trickery with the nice folks at sobat carnival and they put this video together.

The Auto Mix-up (7MB divx)

This trick is possible with almost any character. For example, with Boxer:
↙ hold, ← + strong, ↖ + jab

Take a look at this old match and you can see Daigo mess up the auto mix-up in the beginning of the third round.

H/T: ABC, monmon
