Group Info

This is a group dedicated to Alex, the main character of Street Fighter 3, and yet the most badly neglected character of the whole franchise. This guy gets no regard from Capcom. Yes, he was in Tatsunoko vs. Capcom, but.... that was a Wii-exclusive. And a niche game with no competitive lift left.

This is a place for all Alex fans, and SF fans in general, to create and share their fan art/fiction, while showing their appreciation and support for the NY grappler who has yet to get the recognition he deserves. We want to see him power bombing fools in more games. TvC does not do him justice, and it makes no sense to reintroduce the SF3 cast without him.

Please check out our rules if you want to join. alex-appreciation.deviantart.c…

SF may not be a dormant franchise anymore, but a lot of old-schoolers would argue that it never really came back. I happen to be one of them. But for what it's worth, after some of the crap mechanics I've seen from Alpha up to SF X Tekken, SF5 is looking to be a huge step in the right direction. That's why I find it hilarious that so many people in the so-called "FGC" are quick to say it's alienating to the fan base. Really, a game that's grounded in the fundamentals is alienating? If they can't handle the basics of zoning and footsies, what does that say about their knowledge of SF?

But I can't illustrate my stance well enough, which is why I'm going to indulge you with some old vids from one of the best OGs, Jeff Schaeffer. This guy knows what SF's about. He's got a lot of valuable insight on the nature of the oldest games people competed in, who the best players really were, what it took to be the best, and more importantly, how the series gradually warped over time.……………

And just for laughs, here's Jeff giving his commentary at an ST tournament with the man himself, Tomo Ohira. Daigo's got nothing on him. What he says about ST compared to Hyper Fighting at the 5:20 mark is pure gold.…
