GamerBee: Street Fighter X Tekken didn't take off because it was the wrong timing, could use a patch

Speaking with Hold Back to Block last month at Winter Brawl 8, AVM|GamerBee expressed some thoughts about Street Fighter X Tekken, and why it didn't take off with the community.

Opinions on the title are fairly polarizing, with some people being huge fans and others hating the game.

GamerBee said that SFxT was "pretty good," but it could use another patch, preferably before the next Capcom Cup in December. He wanted the patch to fix some of the issues the community expressed.

He felt that the game suffered from bad timing, but also noted he no longer plays it anymore.

EX special moves and Ultras made their first appearance in Street Fighter: The Movie, the game; Alpha Counters were also included

If you've managed to get some hands-on time with any of the Street Fighter games that were released after the SF2 series, then chances are you've run into EX special moves, Alpha Counters, and Ultras at some point or another. These game mechanics are used very often in modern Street Fighter titles, and Capcom / Namco's recent crossover fighter, Street Fighter X Tekken, actually incorporated a form of all three into its gameplay.

Each of the aforementioned game mechanics has its respective game where it was originally introduced: Street Fighter Alpha (Alpha Counters), EX special moves (Street Fighter 3), and Ultras (Street Fighter 4). Or so we thought...

It may surprise you to hear that these concepts weren't actually brand new by the time those titles were officially released. A game that is only spoken about in hush tones throughout the Street Fighter community actually included these mechanics before or at around the same time as the 3 titles mentioned above.

That's right. Street Fighter: The Movie, the game, had EX special moves, and its own form of Alpha Counters and Ultras. Hit the jump, and we'll tell you all about it.
