SSFIV:AE 2012 – El Fuerte, T. Hawk, and Guy Unblockable Setups by Ryu Apprentice

RyuApprentice is back with a few short videos showing off some unblockable setups in Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition ver. 2012. Note that these setups are unblockable in the purest sense of the word. They aren’t inescapable. DPs escape most of these setups, and some can just be ducked.

    Epic Setups!!

    Fuerte and T.Hawk confirmed top tier. Everyone should drop Akuma/Seth/Viper/Cammy and play these 2 characters instead.

    I really wish people would stop calling all ambiguous setups “unblockables”

    • its so ambiguous, the SF engine cannot allow you to block it either way you point the joystick. hence why its considered a unblockable

    “unblockable in the purest sense of the word.” nope. if the pc AI can block it, it’s not a true unblockable. you can probably use the ‘wiggle’ technique to properly block some of these.

    as far as i’m aware, only vanilla sf4 had true unblockables in the sf4 series.

    EDIT @ Destin Williams (i hit reply but it turned into a regular post?)
     that’s not technically true. if you hold it in either direction you won’t be able to block it but if you block on the first active frame of your wake up you actually can block it. something to do with the character being able to walk back or forward for a frame or two, 1 frame before the 3D model is actually able to walk. there is a video somewhere showing this in detail.

  • Alirio Mendez

    Awesome Fuerte setups! Now, you actually have a chance against Cammy!
