Justin Wong's column: Chapter 3 — Exposure to pressure

Justin Wong's column: Chapter 3 — Exposure to pressure EG|Justin Wong's third column is now live here on EventHubs. This piece covers playing under pressure, and things you can do to prepare for these situations when they come up.

Here's a snip to get you going.

One of the hardest things to achieve is being able to play the way you want to play under a huge amount of pressure. Some players love the pressure and some players despise it. I personally love playing under pressure. I believe that I make some of the best comebacks when I am under pressure which is how the “Wong Factor” came up. Many players have gotten some awesome comeback victories when a huge crowd is watching. We have Peter “Bionic Arm” Rosas, Daigo “Lets Go Justin” Umehara and many more.

In order to see if you can play under pressure, you can do the following things.

• Play on an online stream such as Peaceful Jay or Shoryuken.

• Travel to a local tourney and see how well you do in the tourney with actual people.

• Travel to a major (EVO, Season Beating, Canada Cup, etc)

• Try to play on a stream at a tournament (Highly Recommended)

• Do you get nervous playing against a top player? Y/N

You can find a full archive of all of EG|Justin Wong's columns here.

Super Street Fighter 4 AE: The secret behind post-KO special move strikes

Avid game engine explorer Snoootch has released a tutorial on how he achieves post-KO hits in Arcade Edition. Apparently the trick lies in the fact that you have to input the special move before the canceled normal, essentially making the attack a "kara-like" move. Check out the video for the finer details.

Tip from USAtlas and Rafael2487.

Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 Morrigan and Strider glitch

Zephyrblayze posted a video of a glitch found by JohnnyRH on the SRK forums. If you do a wall cling with Strider while Morrigan's Astral Vision or use Astral Vision when Strider is already clinging to the wall the game will go completely dark and the characters are no longer able to interact with each other.

I Just found an odd glitch with Strider and Morrigan. Whenever Strider uses his wall cling during Morrigan's Astral vision the camera will spaz out for a second before the playingfield goes completely dark. Only the lifebars and the hyperbars remain visible.
The characters will no longer be able to interact with each other and will occasionally stop responding to all player input. Tagging in another character restores the hyper animations, but beside that you're stuck in this Limbo until the timer reaches zero.
