Street Fighter 5 Video Showcases Ryu’s Impeccable Parrying Abilities

A new video has gone live based on the Street Fighter V beta, focusing on Ryu’s new parrying abilities. He’s able to absorb attacks and mount a mean counter-offense with proper timing and skill.

Event Hubs dabbled their doodle in the dutiful display of parrying mastery from YouTuber Pan (ScDrPain). The recreation from EVO moment #37 featuring Ken blocking Chun-Li’s lightning kicks is carried out in the video below, only Ken is replaced with Ryu. Check it out.

Those are some very impressive parrying techniques. We don’t often see a lot of dodging, weaving and parrying in tournament play, which is what made that one EVO moment so special.

For those of you who want something more palatable for forums and meme reactions, you can check out Event Hub’s gif rendition of Ryu blocking Chun-Li’s kicks like many American cities block upstarts from becoming successful and keeping unemployment alive and well in the good ‘ole U.S.A.

The badassness level on that gif is over 9000.

That gif is so epic that the gif needs a reaction gif.

If that gif was rated in supermodels, it would be Kate Upton.

Anyway, the V-Skill that Ryu is utilizing is part of the new series of abilities that Capcom has been overhauling in Street Fighter for Street Fighter V. Running on the Unreal Engine 4 has enabled the game to make use of some brand new performance-enhancing optimization techniques, brand new graphics effects and stabilized 60fps gameplay.

Capcom’s beta tests have been successful insofar of getting gamer feedback, rolling out a basic look at the fighting mechanics for some of the fighters and the special attacks that separate them from one another. There have been compilations of the characters’ Critical Arts as well as some detailed looks at the combo system, the boob jiggle physics and how some of the characters can readily alter the course of the fight with some mean counter measures.

You can see some more super sexy gameplay from the beta, courtesy of FGC legend Maximillian. Check it out below.

Street Fighter V is due for release on the PC and PS4 in early 2016.

    I personally like to parry in SF3 instead, but that’s just me.

    Its ראשית (RaSheet) in hebrew, which means “(in)the Beginning” or “1st in Order” and is the the word that opens the whole of the תורה or what Xians so lovingly call “The Holy Bible” (בבל). 😜
    So in Gamma/Tri or Gematria, a number is given to each form in the Alef-Bet.
    א-1 ב-2 ג׳-3 and so on and so forth…ect.
    The sum of ראשית happens just so to be 911.
    If the ט/9 is applied to the hebrew, the sum will rightfully be 666.
    This isn’t by chance, but Intelligent Design.

    Try putting the ט/9 to your Engl-Ish ABC but don’t forget the “And Per Se AND” which was your 27th letter before being taken away due to your lazy tongues.
    So & will equal 243.

    Now spell/sum “FOWARD” then “BACKWARD”.
    See what happened to you?
    It’s not your fault that you were given a language that you don’t bother to understand….
    Such a young nation and so damned proud!

    But here’s the fall…..
    Jesus, Lucifer, Gospel, Cross,
    Messiah, Amraphel………………….All 666!
    And there are so many more!!!

    I almost forgot the most important……Cain & Abel.
    That’s a message from your “Brother”.

    Keep playing these violent games kids and ManChilds.
    Hope your Street Fighter training pays off…
    Because lil’ Ab-El has been through Hell and back on account of you and now He is ABLE.
    You didn’t hear his bloods cry from the ground?
    Eye Did!!!…….
    HE screams for BLOODY MURDER!!!

    See ya in “church”, my Brethren.
