With SFV appearing at Six Flags locations throughout the summer and making appearances at gaming conventions and tournaments between now and it’s release in spring 2016, a lot of you guys are going to get your hands on the game early. It's also avilable to those who pre-order on PS4 will get access to the open online beta July 23-28. Since my last post about the mechanics of the game was well-received I thought I would continue on with the series. This time I’ll be focusing on Ryu since I believe that is the best character for every player to start with when learning a new Street Fighter game.
The Adam of all fighting games that every fighting game character in gaming is in some way inspired by or descended from makes his glorious return in Street Fighter V. After a series of updates in SF4 rendered him a shell of his former self, as well as the rise of his soul-selling variant Evil Ryu, Ryu is arguably more powerful than ever.
