Guy Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition guide updated The Arcade Edition guide for Guy has been updated by myself here on EventHubs.

Guy was a difficult character to write for due to his unusual moveset. If you can get past his unusual jump and odd normals, he is actually quite a capable and underplayed character. His defense is weak, but his mid range poking game is excellent. Here's a piece from the guide.

Guy is a great poke and punish character with ambiguous crossups, an overhead, and many baiting maneuvers. He also has a good punish game with his slide and Shoulder attacks. Guy can be played flexibly, but the best style to use is simple calculated rushdown.

Guy's problems are when he needs to get pressure off of him. His only good reversal requires EX and can never be made safe. His floaty jump also hinders his approach as it is very easy to anti-air with normals. Lastly, Guy's walkspeed is also below average, hurting his throw and approach game.

If you notice any typos, feel free to post about them in the comments.
