A content creator by the moniker Bob Sagat recently posted a video titled "Combos from Hell" wherein he showed off a handful of Super Street Fighter 2 Turbo combos and sequences that, for all intents and purposes, appear impossible to perform.

Dee Jay is able to string two projectiles together against Cammy, Ken is able to throw out more than one attack while facing the wrong direction, and Balrog is able to pull off two dash punches and a Super with just a single charge, for example. After giving viewers some time to ponder these strange SF2 happenings, Bob posted a video with all the answers.

Many of these combos are possible only through very specific understanding and manipulation of the way the game reads/prioritizes inputs. The transition characters go through in order to change from facing one direction to another, as you'll see in the video, is a hotbed for potential in this arena.

As one may expect when dealing with such odd happenings, Bob shows off the details behind the recently discovered quicksand glitch that causes Ken to essentially become "buried" beneath the ground.

Not only is the content intriguing, but the editing and presentation of the video is more than worth pointing out. Transitions are anything but boring and the visual presentation of complicated concepts is made very digestible thanks to an expert level execution.
