    Default Super Street Fighter IV

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Super_Street_Fighter_IV

    Can't wait for this to come out. I've been away from these forums for quite awhile, but I thought this game would definitely be worth discussing. I'm a huge fan of Street Fighter IV and I never really stopped playing it since it's release.

    Here's a video of a lot of the new ultras:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5gKV0wCC4EY

    As most of you guys know, I use Cammy, and her new ultra is a counter ultra. A lot of people are knocking it right now, but I think I'll be able to put it to good use. I've had some success in local Chicago tournaments with Cammy. My accomplishments are:

    - Finishing second to Floe in a tourny awhile back, think I posted a thread on it...
    - Beating Floe in a money match
    - Tying for 9th at Frosty Faustings, one of our biggest tournaments to start out the year

    I don't intend on switching mains as I've used Cammy in every SF, but I'll look to try and get decent with everyone like I did with SFIV. I definitely intend on checking out Adon.

    (Edit: Also, I changed my gamertag, as you can see in my sig. If I haven't played you in SFIV, send me a friend request!)

    I'm very exited about this. Street Fighter 4 is what compelled me to get into this currents gen. This will be a day one buy for me.
    Did everything just taste purple for a second?

    I just hope they don't Nerf 'Geif. Hell, I say pump him up over Sagat.

    It'd be kinda odd if they nerfed Gief. I'd imagine it's tough against the better competition since all smart players know it's best to just run away from the big guy o_O

    Sagat is supposedly getting nerfed, but it just seems like he's getting better. I think they're giving him some counter type of move o_O I think they should get rid of his ability to cancel his step kick into any of his specials. That gives him the ability to cover the distance he is typically unable to because of his slow walk speed.

    No one is getting nerfed as far as I know, they are just getting new tools to utilise...

    Ha! I think we all knew those 3 would be in the game. It's nice to have official confirmation. Dudley looks a bit weird. I cannot wait to play Ibuki (my favorite SF3 character). Strange that all the new female characters are barefoot, though....

    Hey, SFIV pretty much merged the regular and EX series. It could happen.

    Dudley is a genuine BEAST in third strike, my friend, and a player favorite. I'm excited to see high level Dudley vs. Balrog play, if only to satisfy my inner nerd. I hope he's as fun as he is in 3S. If so, I'll be picking him up.

    Looking forward to this more than any other game this year. I'm interested to see what they did with my mains Blanka and Chun Li: I'll be happy if they give Blanka an Ultra that links a bit easier than his vanilla SFIV Ultra, and if they fixed Chun's Ultra 1 so it doesn't throw your opponent out of the move if you hit them when they're in a juggle state. I hate that.

    What makes you think that? Were you at one of the hands on events? I'm not defending the game (I haven't touched it and know nothing), I'm just curious, especially with the game being at Evo this year.

    Nirvana, are you going to be at the tournament this Saturday in Chicago? Failing that, will you be at Midwest Championship in May?

    Awesome, I'm so glad to see Dudley in, with the addition of him and Makoto, they added two of my faves from SFIII.

    This game could be sweet, but somehow I doubt it'll get anywhere near as much play from my crew as it would have if Tatsunoko vs Capcom hadn't already come out.

    GBoobie: All everyone has done about SF4 is complain about it needing to be rebalanced and "their" characters needing more stuff done to them. I've been playing SF competitively since 1991 and this is definitely the most balanced of the SF games sans ST. People don't know how good they have it when it's already decent sans making Guile and Vega's Ultras useful. When you add more characters to the mix and a new system, something is bound to happen to to characters probably becoming unusable. Look at CVS2 and MVC2. Those games have a plethora of characters but only 8 or so are used in tournament play.

    I'm not saying the game is going to be bad by any means, I am merely referring to the balance being changed not to what everyone thinks they are going to like.

    They really need to get Alex in there. He was by far the most interesting new character in SF3. Makoto is lame.

    SRSLY. But then again, they put him in TvC and that other one that no one likes... which is all the more reason to put him here.

    Alex is easily the dullest Street Fighter III character. He's blandly designed, devoid of personality, and not all that fun to play when compared to the rest of the cast.

    Besides, he's in Tatsunoko vs. Capcom.
