CV Spotlight: ShinjiGohan’s SFEX2 Promo Remake

Twelve years ago, Arika released an extensive ten-minute combo video to promote their Street Fighter EX series in Japan. It contained several advanced combos for every character, including over six minutes of touch-of-death combos.

Street Fighter EX2 – The Combination (Remake)

Fast-forward to 2010, and ShinjiGohan has gone through all the trouble of recreating every combo using tool-assistance. If you ever happened to see the original and had any questions, now’s your chance to ask someone who knows each combo first-hand.

The entire thing is top-notch quality content front-to-back, but as far as highlights go, i like the Vega air-to-ground Excel combo at 1:33, the Hayate clip at 2:24, the Ken death combo at 4:21, Guile’s backfists of death at 5:36, and C.Jack’s overhead of death at 7:55. Of course, Dhalsim’s slide/upflame combos at 5:53 and Shadow’s multi-divekick combo at 9:04 are great too.

    Very nice Combo vid. Its a shame the Ex series wasn’t really that popular, coz some of the characters were really cool. Id love to see some of them back in a future SF game, but i doubt it very highly.

    I don’t think Capcom owns them.

    I remember hearing something like that, but i don’t think Arika will/is gonna do anything with them, which sucks because in reality, it would be good business sense to sell the licensing to Capcom since most of the characters in the series have been unused since EX3 anyway. But you can’t dictate to them what they should do, it is their business after all.

    I loved SF EX when i played it, well the trial mode mainly.. was never fond of SF EX3.

    Anyone ever manage to manually do some of the Maniac combos? i managed to do Garudas 0 to death combo with a unique combo of my own, but the others just looked manic to me… IIRC i managed Vegas as well, but that wasn’t 0 to death so.

    Nice video… I’m curiuos though, what drove him to recreate all the combos? seems rather pointless… did he not think they were plausible?

    God I loved this game, had the best music and characters in my opinion. Skullomania was awesome, I still think I remember some basic tactics with him.

    From what I recall, Ariko left Capcom under some not-so-great conditions and is holding the rights mostly because he doesn’t care to bury the hatchet.

    I’ve been trying to get this to run on MAME, but I’ve had no luck. I got the ROM and everything, but it’s missing stuff. It’d be great to make some combo vids in this.

    I want Skullomania back. And Cracker Jack, his music was beyond awesome.

    I have a question for you Maj.
    How do you become better at SF in general? I mean, I’ve looked over all of you footsie info, but that stuff, while it is useful, doesn’t really help me in terms of online play. I don’t go to tournaments much, so this is all I really get to play, and against a few friends from time to time.

    I’ve played really great players before, and it baffles me how they beat me so easily. I just don’t understand it at all. From the looks of things, it just seems as if I was beaten. But they don’t have any fancy combos or anything, and this is what I don’t understand.

    Online, my PP stays at around 2K, so I know some stuff about the game, but not enough to regularly beat the people I come across. Flowchart Ryu’s are a real problem, but it’s just the people online in general who beat me. Do you have any tips for getting over this stage in the game? Looking over a bunch of videos on youtube will only help me so much, but not against the people I come across on PSN.

    Mnemo, if you read the footsie articles again, you’ll see that they’re not about fancy combos either. Maj has given you all the info you pretty much need to get started and to understand how to play the game. At least in written form. Maybe you can get together with someone irl, or online with a headset or something who can comment on your play directly, because in terms of learning from reading things online, I don’t think there’s much more to say.

    I agree with Bob Sagat. The best thing i would say is grab a mic with a friend who you think is pretty good at the game, then get them to pick the main crop of characters you’re struggling with, and learn what they do and how to counter it. Online, your experience will always be different, sometimes you win sometimes you lose, not much you can do. IF you are struggling with flowchart Ryu’s/ken’s then instead of getting frustrated, lose a round. It sounds silly at first, but it can help you understand the predictable patterns they are going to do. That way, you can mix your game up and anticipate how they are going to act and then go from there. It’s just a tip, just keep trying im sure you will get there eventually. For me Favourites to come back are Skullo, D.Dark, Garuda and C.Jack. Man how i would love to swing a bat to Rufus’ stomach and watch that thing erupt.

    Okay, thanks for the advice, appreciate it.
    I’ll look over the articles one more time. Is there anything else that would give me some really strong fundamentals for the game, because that’s where I think I’m lacking. My execution is good enough to pull out a lot of the combos for my characters, but those are pretty lost without solid fundamentals, which I think is what Maj trying to teach anyway.

  15. June 1st, 2010 at 14:25 | #15

    I like Skullo, Darun, Sharon, Shadow Geist, and Allen. Garuda and C.Jack are alright. I like Vulcano Rosso’s moveset but not his overall appearance. Never liked Kairi. Doctrine Dark is a chump!

    Mnemo: That’s a general question with only specific answers. You’re only going to get better one matchup at a time. It’s a slow process so don’t get discouraged. If you have specific questions, it’d be better to post them under whatever relevant strategy article you can find. I keep track of new comments wherever they’re posted, but it’s better to keep stategy discussion near strategy articles so everyone can find it.

    Meh, I never really liked Sharon. I’d rather have Blair Dame in stead.
    Allen Snyder is the man. I like his reverse Dragon Punch move. It looked really clunky to me at first, what with its slow recovery, but the awesome Training Mode(though it only focuses on combos) helped straighten things out.
    What about Hokuto? Interesting to see a non-sex-bomb female character in Street Fighter. I never played SFEX seriously, but her evasive specials seem quite interesting.

    I can still remember playing CvS2 for the first time and seeing Dictator’s kick grab and Scissor Kick super, copied directly from SFEX.* That was too awesome.

    *I know he had Knee Press Nightmare before, but the level 3 bicycle kick-> dropkick finisher is way better than the lame 2 hit slide finisher from Alpha…
