Low tier hero: YSB's Hugo brings the hype in this SF3 3s match highlight compilation

Posted by Jonathan 'Catalyst' Grey • March 16, 2014 at 12:01 p.m. PDT

Hugo is often regarded as a low tier character in Street Fighter 3 Third Strike, but in the hands of Japan's YSB, he's made the big man look quite formidable.

A new highlight package showcasing YSB's amazing match play was recently put online. This is a shade under three minutes long, and features some epic parry, combo and setup moments.

If you even remotely like SF3 3s, you should definitely watch this clip, after the break.

Video from SFIII3rdStrike on YouTube, tip from Djinn.

SF3 low tier players are always the most impressive to watch

These asian commentators always gives me the creeps. Most of them sound like a metally hurt monkey with more adrenaline their body can handle.

My bad I posted before watching the video, see the influence now ;)

It's a shame that 10 years from now when we look back at the great street fighter 4 moments, 90% of them will have taken place on some greyish/white grid with horizontal and vertical lines.

The training room stage has got to be the biggest abomination that capcom has created. I hope in future games they do away with it, and replace it with a dojo-like stage similar to what's in kof 13.

...not that this has anything to do with the video above.

Incredible stuff.
I wish USF4 Hugo would remotely be as good as in 3s, but I'm surely hoping too much ...

Stream monsters and forum posters give me the creeps.

They sound genuinely oblivious to the racist, sexist, and generally abhorrent things they say.

Nothing less should be expected from YSB

Kelshou said on March 16, 2014 at 1:46 p.m.

"as good as in 3s"?!?!

Hugo is one of the worst characters in 3S. I'm pretty sure Hugo is going to be better in Ultra than in 3S.

That's called: "H-Y-P-E", should have learned that in pre-school...

I thought Alex was considered low tier, like bottom 3 with Q and Sean.

While I always loved the smart play by Hayao, I have to say that YSB will always be the most entertaining, most intimidating Hugo lol.

YSB comeback in Ultra? :P

He is one of the 5 gods and Teisei(帝聖)、Shinya Ohnuki .In Japan,we think Nuki is better than Tokido,sako,Haitani because his track record is the best after Daigo.

Never underestimate capcom? Decapre mean something to you? it means lazy and miser to me. I think they are sit on the SF name, and make any crap to take our money with the minimum work.
