Street Fighter 4

I'm surprised nothing has been posted about it coming out today. It looks so awesome! I want it! Sakura is in it now so I'm excited. We must discuss the importance of it, and maybe other fighting games.

But anyways, while it looks pretty neat, it also just looks weird to me and makes me remember SF3 or w/e that other attempt of theirs was at 3D that was a horrible train wreck...

A straight fighting game thread might not be bad though...

What's the whole cast for SF4? I haven't even looked it up much...

I've never really been big on fighting games. One of the few ones I've ever played and finished was Street Fighter. But back when I was a kid I used to play Street Fighter in the arcade all the time. Can't say I was good at it though. I remember liking Marvel vs. Capcom too.

I'm no good at SF either. I can disguise my ineptitude somewhat by showing off most of Ryu/Ken's abilities, but I'm reasonably worthless beyond that.  :)

Aww... I wanted to post it. But yeah thats the list. I was never good at it either but I stood a chance with most people. I just had to find the right character.

So those characters are only on the consoles not in the arcades? Is that what it means? That's kinda lame I guess (though arcades are dying and I haven't even been to one in forever)...Fei Long & Cammy are great.

I was ok at the games...The way I saw it, I had a good chance to beat you in the arcades unless you were asian. Though the aerial raves in Marvel Vs Capcom 2 were usually beyond me...Capcom vs SNK 2 was more my speed.

I don't see how Akuma/Gouki is a secret character anymore...and yeah, I heard about Gouken...first time he'll actually be playable...I wonder how different he plays from the other "Shoto" characters (if at all)...

His fireball is different, he roundhouses up, and has a dashing fist.

OMG I've been talking about that for years. Think of the legendary battles. A few off the top of my head.

Ryu and Ken vs. Cloud and Zack
Chun Li vs. Tifa
Akuma vs. Magus
Felica vs. Ayla
Hayato(was in MvC2) vs. Fayte or Edge

I always thought the Ryu duo (Mr. Street Fighter & one of the BoF ones) versus Crono & Clod (spikey haired C-name duo?)...Zack would just be a friggin Clod clone...or the other way around, I guess...lol

Marvel vs Capcom vs SNK vs Square-Enix vs Smash Bros.  That'd be the shit right there.

It was a damn shame when Marvel left Capcom...Anyone ever play those lame ass Activision Mutant Academy fighting games? ew...

idk how they'd crossover with Smash Bros...Maybe there could be two versions...a more Capcom-centric fighter featuring the more adult (i.e. non-chibi) Ninny characters and then the Smash version that'd have crap like the X-Babies and Mog :lol: Megaman & Link would fit in both arenas!

Yeah because oldschool RPG fans are totally up-to-date with 2D (it's still 2D gameplay) fighters. lol

Right here. I'm all about 2d fighters; I play just about every weekend. As soon as I have a system that'll run it, I plan on picking up SF4. I can't wait to give it a shot, even if BlazBlu is the present gen 2d fighter that's more my style.

But anyways, while it looks pretty neat, it also just looks weird to me and makes me remember SF3 or w/e that other attempt of theirs was at 3D that was a horrible train wreck...

You're thinking of the Street Fighter EX games. Street Fighter III: Third Strike is still well regarded. It's also 2d.

Megaman AND Link AND Crono would be incredible! And with the number of people they have it's a wonder they haven't tried fighters again(Square Enix I mean). I mean, sure, their last attempt wasn't the best (Ehrgeiz, in which they teamed up with dream factory whom i don't know what they're big for and Namco who is good in most genres), but I think that was only cause they released their game a year later than they should have!
If they'd do a sort of game(maybe Ehrgeiz 2?)that's a fighter maybe then they could include Crono!!!!!! I don't care how bad the game would be, I'd get it simply to play as Crono and whup the s*** outta everybody!
Sorry, got a little excited there.  :lol:

I remember playing Mortal Kombat in the arcades...and especially MK II.  I became deadly with Sub-Zero...mainly because I spammed this seemingly unavoidable (once hit) 7 hit combo I made up (or think I made up).  Gone are the days...
