Tips on playing the samsho games?
GeeseTheDuck
I've wanted to like the samsho games for many years now,
but for some reason i just can't get into the "flow" of the game.
I know the mechanics, i know how to do the moves, i just can't seem to get into the game.
So any of you got any tips on what mindset you have when you play these games?

Although SamSho has its ridiculous difficulty, one thing is for sure, there is a pattern. Cheap Throwing and Hard Slashing in the early games, and maybe some other ways. Also Check out my SS PT's GtD, it shows you how I did in playing it.

Also think of every attack as of bait (successful/unsuccessful/risky etc but bait), every time you attack you are baiting opponent's punishing patterns, so you can manipulate opponent that way.

Also I suggest reading competitive SS forums (Heavenly Spirits and Spirits Society), and of course trying to play the games versus human opponent(online/offline)

Thanks, I'll be sure to check out those places.
I wish i could play online, but i don't really know anything at all
when it comes to those things.
I'll probably sit down and figure it out eventually,
I consider myself a pretty decent Kyo player when it comes to KOF,
so I've been itching to try my skills against real people.

Let us know if you need any help with that. Myself and I'm sure other people here would be happy to help if you need any advice about playing online. It's actually very easy to do. If you ever feel like a few matches you should come into the chatroom on Sundays.

Thanks, I'll be sure to do that sometimes.

Hey Geese,

I don't consider myself a high-level player but I think I am good enough to see how rewarding it is to get better at Samurai Shodown games. If you wanna see what's possible in these games, you should play against Black Shroud Smile
 
NeoStrayCat
Or Me. Smile But I'll help you out in certain aspects.

Hey, i just wanna say thanks guys!
While i had a match against/got owened by Stray,
i suddenly had this "Ah-ha!" moment, i read through the link Black Shroud posted, and I'm suddenly doing much better! it's amazing!
Now, if i can just adjust what I've learned to make it work against a human player...

Lol, you should become the disciple of God 2.0, another player from Norway who is one of best Hanzo players. Here are some vids with him:

I suggest starting from SS1-SS2 though as they are more basic. If you want to play me on kaillera, you can contact me via MSN
