    'Hard' way to go for understating, I mean, I love using understaments to get the point across, but holy jesus wept, what the gamer did in the real KoF tourny was nigh on impossible. He strung together a series of parries/combos/juggles with enough health to take one hit with each of his characters, against an opponent with nearly full health characters, of almost equal skill, [Before this] AND WON.

    This is the street fighter video dude. Not the King of Fighters video. Ak posted both at around the same time, but you're thinking of the other thread.

    But I agree with what you said, totally. However trying to explain how tough this shit is in either video is not going to be easy or worth the effort. And people will STILL think that the video is lame, because they lack context.
    Dear cousin choppitychop89, you were a good relative, though I hardly knew ye.

    The only people who think it's lame are the ones who haven't played the game or doesn't know what parrying is.

    Exactly. But just saying "hey parrying is tough shit as is, parrying a massive combo while being one hit away from death and then turning that into a counter combo is like pulling a black hole out of your ass" probably won't explain enough.

    ...or maybe... it does.

    But remember, the stunts you witnessed were performed by highly trained professionals who spent countless hours in front of the television training their asses off for the sole reason of be crowned the SF king.

    They sarcified their social lives for this sole reason. I think they should be able to parry a combo and make that huge comeback victory.

    For those fools who haven't seen the real video. Sorry AK for spoiling it. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=np_5BHmaSI4 Incredibly hard to do. Ak I disagree with you though. THIS is probably the best comeback as opposed to the other one you mentioned in the game section.

    No it isn't. Just look at the life gauge difference. In the KoF comeback, he plowed through three top tier characters with mid tier Iori and Kyo having near death life gauge.

    True true had to rewatch it and you right. Although this had much more excitement in it I guess is why I said it in the first place.
