i wrote a long post about how i have gone 9 and 3 in my last 12 fights on expert
but then i thought to myself... 'wtf, self. why are you telling these guys how to win when you're going to be fighting a bunch of them.'
heh heh. so instead i'll just say... the things you yell at the TV, yell at your fav fighters... those are the things YOU need to do to win this game. it is not a traditional fight game. keep your hands up, stay out of the pocket, and for god's sake... circle, dont back up.
oh yeah, and use the proper strike for the situation. don't throw a flying left knee at a guy circling to his left / your right. this aint your parent's street fighter II turbo edition.
