Anyone know if Shoryuken FADC U2 goes into cinematic or just the three uppercuts? Same question for j. Mp too.

Any news on his walk speed?

Let me guess, Akuma killed ryu by putting his fist through his body which awakened the satsu no hado in ryu and turned him into evil ryu.

Which in return Evil Ryu killed Akuma and turned into Demon Akuma or it probably triggered akuma's true power.

We all know Akuma planned this because akuma knew if he could get ryu to give in, akuma's true power will be unleashed.

Hmmm, the more I see of him the more I actually like the look of him.

@novacane

doubt it, akuma's only at true power when hes shin so... yh

is it me or did they purposely give evil ryu way better priority than ryu for a trade in health and stun ?

as if Ryu isn't bad enough

GUNNAH_MAN said on March 30, 2011 at 3:24 a.m.

its annoying to see ANOTHER character more aggressive than cody, i really need a new main thats more specialised in an area.

I wish Ryu could j.Mp into ultra 2 aswell...

yuenyun said on March 30, 2011 at 3:30 a.m.

Well, it's basically Ryu with Akuma tactics but... I still feel like he's too slow. He looks okay in the video, but using him, at times he feels sluggish. Also, Evil Ryu has ugly hair. How you gonna dominate the world with ugly hair?

@14 ryu with akuma tactics ?

where is the air hadoken pressure or the demon flip vortex ?

he just looks like akuma and he has teleport...

#15
GW said on March 30, 2011 at 4:52 a.m.

@15

How does E.Ryu have more combo options than Akuma? Only difference is the ex overhead and combo into ultra. This trades for air fireball, demon flip, Akuma's roundhouse and vortex so it doesn't really seem like "way more combo options" since ex demon flip punishes from full screen, Ex fireball applies good pressure and presents many combo opportunities, roundhouse moves Akuma forward and can be comboed into and the vortex sets up the whole mix up to combo again with the sweep after light tatsu. Doesn't really seem like more combo potential, just easy noob friendly combos into ultras which will result in more shoto hate and op remarks.

you just got it so wrong, how did you even get to that conclusion

cloudstrife360 said on March 30, 2011 at 5:44 a.m.

I can't wait to meet Evil Ryu! Lol but no Oni looks like a more interesting character to me, and I've never played straight up traditional shotos. This guy has some serious potential though.

#19
XNO said on March 30, 2011 at 5:48 a.m.

I wonder if he can combo of an overhead...

Senbukyaku or EX Ryusokyaku

if it does + his amazing low poke, mid-range will be really dangerous against him

#20
GW said on March 30, 2011 at 6 a.m.

E.Ryu is basically a more aggressive version of Ryu which seems pretty stupid since he has such low stamina and stun. Akuma makes up for this with his air firball and mix of both good offensive and defensive skills while E.Ryu is basically a rushdown character which is stronger damage wise and weaker stamina wise version of Ryu which seems pretty stupid for a "New" character. Oni on the other hand is a much more interesting character with his air dash, air raging demon etc.

I can't wait for the deluge of Evil Ryu's online! It's going to be awesome!

-.-

#22
GUNNAH_MAN said on March 30, 2011 at 6:22 a.m.

@XNO

Senbukyaku i said to be unsafe so i doubt it and ex ryusokyaku knocks down so no cant combo from that either lool

illfamous said on March 30, 2011 at 6:54 a.m.

I still dont understand why they feel they needed to add two more shoto characters. As if the game didnt have enough. So ryu is no obsolete and is replaced by his better clone. Pffft.

#26
SnakeX said on March 30, 2011 at 7:33 a.m.

Damn, that crouching medium kick is REALLY good.

@27

Because more players are likely to play a shoto character than a character like Q, Alex, Sodom, Rolento, or any other character that some people keep demanding. It's not hard to understand. Capcom simply decided to add a character that they KNOW people will play as. That's just how it is.

Also, Evil Ryu doesn't make regular Ryu obsolete. They don't play the same.

#27
GodPride said on March 30, 2011 at 8:11 a.m.

Capcom gave him too huge of a hit box on his shoryuken. Visually, his character model did not even touch his victim. Damn you Tekken.

I wonder how my Vega's going to match up. ;(

#28
brusora said on March 30, 2011 at 9:18 a.m.

Damn it, that EX Shoryuken hitbox is so SICK.

#29
gtfopanda said on March 30, 2011 at 9:34 a.m.

@ #24

You're wrong, MK stomp doesn't knock down, links (1f link according to reports) to cr.MP.

#30
Darkyellow said on March 30, 2011 at 9:38 a.m.

@28

You're right Evil Ryu doesn't make Ryu obsolete, but Ryu or Akuma make Evil Ryu obsolete. I'm surprised the video didn't mention that the EX stomp is Armor Break.

#31
GUNNAH_MAN said on March 30, 2011 at 10:42 a.m.

@gtfpanda

i could of swore i only mentioned ex stomp and Senbukyaku so i dont know how i was wrong in saying you cant combo from either of those 2 moves that XNO mentioned lool

#32
GUNNAH_MAN said on March 30, 2011 at 10:50 a.m.

@gtfpanda

the key word in XNO sentence was overhead, ryusokyaku isn't an overhead, ex ryusokyaku is... lol

#33
tokyobassist said on March 30, 2011 at 11:43 a.m.

@SnakeX

Capcom doesn't even care about the fans anymore. It's all about the benjamins and catering to a generation of lame gamers. After that half-assed mess of a game called MVC3 and them abusing DLC, I'm done supporting them. Especially with this new Resident Evil Operation Raccoon City garbage...cloaking, zombie meatshields, and Slant Six Games in my Resident Evil? No Thanks.

I will be picking up AE though if the price is right.

Mr_Clack said on March 30, 2011 at 11:56 a.m.

"People love Ryu and Akuma, so let's give them more, everybody OK with that?"

"What about Rolento, Karin, Elena and the other POPULAR choices?"

"We only have 2 weeks left..."

"Evil Ryu and Oni Akuma it is!"

-That's how I think the decision went down-

#35
Darkyellow said on March 30, 2011 at 12:07 p.m.

I posted this in another one of the Evil Ryu blog posts, but this is how I feel it went down.

Dev 1: "Hmm, what about Q?"

Dev 2: "We can't do that, he has a dash punch and Balrog has a dash punch. It's UNORIGINAL."

Dev 1: "Some people like Necro. What about him?"

Dev 2: "NO, he's too much like Blanka and Dhalsim except that his primary strength is corner pressure, but he can't really rushdown, and his normals have no priority."

Dev 1: "What about Urien?"

Dev 2: "We already gave Seth two of his moves and Seth is way more ORIGINAL and INTERESTING."

Dev 1: "What about Evil Ryu? He'll be like Akuma with less mix-up, but he'll have this hole in his chest. He'll have T.Hawk's crouch forward and this axe kick that will have 60 frame start up and won't hit overhead unless you use meter. We'll also give him a Shoryu Reppa ultra."

Dev 2: "Can we give him an alternate costume that makes him look like a scruffy hobo and give him a cool flame aura?"

Dev 1: "God damn right we can."

Dev 2: "YEAAAAAAAAHHH!!!!!"

#37 Less mix-up but very easy hit confirms to high damage.

Evil Ryu was not the worst choice of adding previous characters (imo that would be Remy or Ingrid)

Though I would be prefer Karin and/or Urien.

Darkyellow said on March 30, 2011 at 1:31 p.m.

@41

Evil Ryu is Ryu with Akuma's health, better, slower pokes and flashier ultras or Akuma with less overall offensive capabilities and maybe more damage. So you took a spacing character with good health and dropped it severely and increased his damage output, but didn't make him much better at rushing down. How is that better than Ryu or Akuma?

#41
Hitstick said on March 30, 2011 at 1:52 p.m.

Evil Ryu is gonna take more skill to use because of his low health/stun.

#42
Danpser said on March 30, 2011 at 2:07 p.m.

I wonder how his dash will contribute to his play style.

#43
Dr_Robotnik said on March 30, 2011 at 7:54 p.m.

that looks amazing.

CAPCOM

Y U NO RELEASE SSF4AE FOR CONSOLES!?

#44
bokosaki said on March 30, 2011 at 10:21 p.m.

He has just as little health as seth, he's slightly better than seth and that's about it. He's fun though I'll give you that.

#45
XNO said on March 31, 2011 at 2:58 a.m.


lot of people plays ryu, and play it defensive...

thats not a good way to turn some of them into offensive player ?
