I've been playing video games for pretty much my whole life. My earliest memory in fact was me playing Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II on the NES at like three or four years old. During my high school years I gained a huge interest in fighting games, especially 2D fighters. Unfortunately there was one problem. No one played fighting games anymore. Everybody wanted to play Halo and Guitar Hero. I was rocking the PS2 playing Third Strike, King of Fighters XI, and Neo Geo Battle Colosseum. Later I got Guilty Gear XX ^ Core on the Wii. Admittedly I didn't really have any friends growing up and on the rare occasion someone came over they didn't enjoy the games...except Guilty Gear, but even that was rare. I tried to find people to play but I couldn't. At the time I also posted on shoryken.com, but I left after a year or two because people there were such dicks to me because I kept asking "stupid questions". I eventually picked up Street Fighter IV, but quickly got bored with it. After that I dropped fighting games for years. It didn't help that I only had a Wii, DS, and a gaming PC as my platforms. Eventually Skullgirls was announced on Steam. I picked it up on a whim. I fell in love with the game, and played it frequently. I also picked up King of Fighters XIII. After about two months or so, I dropped fighting games again. Fast forward to two and a half months ago I once again picked up Skullgirls. I was enamored by the game and am now playing multiple online tournaments and playing matches. I also play other fighting games from time to time like Guilty Gear Xrd and King of Fighters 2002. What's more, now that I am independent and have a car (with great gas mileage) I can actually drive out to places and attend local tournaments. The downside is that in Chicagoland everyone almost exclusively plays Street Fighter V. Though there is a meet up for Guilty Gear which is where I go. Apparently a Skullgirls meet-up is in the works but I'm not sure if I'd be willing to drive an hour a fifteen minutes it takes get to the possible location. Going to Combo Breaker was phenomenal. I was blown away how people flew in from all over the world just to play the games they love. After these experiences I am in it for the long haul for fighting games. No other games really entertain me anymore. That said, it is unfortunate I didn't have resources like online play and what not back in high school as I have to basically start from scratch. Currently I'm learning some basic BnB combos for Valentine and Robo Fortune (my team). They are as follows: Val: c.lk > c.mk (1) > c.hp > j.hp > j.hk > AD > j.mp (2) > j.hk > j.lp > j.mp (1) > j.hk > ADC > j.mk > j.hk > dash > s.lp (3) > s.lk > s.mp (2) > s.mk > s.hk (3) xx HK Bypass xx EKG Flatliner R. Fortune: c.LK > c.MP > s.MK > c.HP > SJC > j.LK > j.MK > j.HK > [s.MP] > s.MK > c.HP > SJC > j.LP > j.MP > j.HK > s.LP > s.LP > [s.MP] > s.MK > s.HP > H Danger > Super Robo's combo is one I almost have down, but I am struggling with Val's as it is difficult to connect the first AD to the j.mp (2) with some characters. So yeah that's where I'm at right now.
