    I would say focus more on the feel and pace of it more than trying to dive right into trials. Get a standard, easy, BnB for each of your characters and begin playing. Once you're comfortable with the flow and begin to realize where you can apply what, then worry about fancier combos and meter management.

    Yeah what KrsJin said totally. Definitely do the tutorial too just to familiarize yourself with the different gauges and jump types. I often forget the hop, which I need to implement. As far as character selection.... I honestly picked my characters by looking in the manual and picking which guys I thought looked cool and then focused on learning their moves. I barely hit the trial mode with them but once I figured the game out, I tried it and it gave me some insight on some combos. Definitely check YouTube for character specific combo exhibitions when you've got the basics down. It's a fun game but take time to learn it. I tried to casually learn it like I did with marvel and it didn't go well at all. It's not a difficult game to learn but it's difficult to master if that makes any sense lol. You'll be fine with kof, Austin. Glad to have you aboard!

    I'd actually personally advise going into the trials and playing through til you get pretty damn stuck or overwhelmed on first glance (most will be trial 4 or 5). That way you can get a feel for what the characters do, want to do, can do, how the special moves work, how they flow etc.. It'll give you a crash course in basics and the kind of moves the game expects you to link together more often than not.

    That's actually what I do when I try to learn a new character. It's just more fun than jumping right in to training.

    So to further answer your question, thus far, KrsJin: I'm enjoying Kim quite a bit. He has a flow somewhat similar to Kula and I think that's why I'm enjoying him off the get go, but with a bag full of tricks to keep him in and to keep him unpredictable. His options are ridiculously large and I think, looking back, is one thing I was not using well with Shen, also him being more limited IN options anyway.

    I just have to get used to playing smart to get in and stay in.

    romora i hope you stick with this game. it will force you to learn some fundamentals because no offense your fundamentals are ass. You have good combos decent execution but when it comes to putting yourself into those situations you lack a knowledge of how to do that. foots blocking proper punishment is what this game is all about.

    To be honest, I got this game on a whim. But upon playing it for about 3 hours last night, i had fun and will continue to play this game. I don't have live right now though, so i'll have to play arcade/story mode. But i really want to learn this game on a competitive level. I like King and Terry so far.. I feel like i'm gonna have to really buckle down to find three characters that fit my style of play.

    Just use Billy's jalopy kicks over and over. HIGH LEVEL PLAY.

    But really Billy is stupid strong at mid range, and is a killer of worlds at pokes convertible into damage. Still thinking about picking him up, but one thing at a time.

    Athena
    Kensou
    Saiki

    All have a pretty good projectile game. And Romora, since you're new to this game it would be a good idea to stick to simple characters to get the basics down. Hwa is difficult to use if you don't know the basics.

    If you set it to the lowest difficulty in arcade and just focus on doing all the meter 'challenges' that pop up the Saiki event is trivial to trigger, and then he dies insanely fast. I never use him but I hate having locked non-DLC characters and I'm too lazy to do it the 'right' way ;-)

    Well since my 360 hated the disc, I got this again for the PS3. As it's been awhile, where's the go to site for KOF? My team is still Yuri/Mai/Athena...but I really would like to give OG Iori a shot once I get some faster internet service.
