Ode to the 2-Hit Combo

Posted on January 20th, 2015 by Hitstun

I played Ultra Street Fighter IV last night hitting with lots of Final Turn Punches and I remembered this classic from August 2004. Jchensor, Maj, MrWizard, and zEvil compiled 20+ minutes of footage that ranges from the earliest fighting game combos to Playstation 2 games and their highly impractical setups.
