Official Street Fighter IV Thread

Bit surprised to not see this mentioned, as this is shaping up to be the best fighter for the 360. Anybody managed to try the arcade version? Having enjoyed SF2HD Remix over the past few months, I cannot wait to try this game. I even ordered a tournament edition stick and a new fight pad just to play it. Roll on Feb 17th/20th.

Who else is looking forward to this game?

Pretty stoked. I've been practicing on Street Fighter 3 for what it's worth.

I love 3rd strike, I'm still kinda on the fence on whether to get a stick or not, I can play fine with the d-pad on the dualshock2, but 360's d-pad blows....**** it, I'll get the stick.

@ Che, I don't think it's a bad idea to practice 3rd strike, to my knowledge they kept the parry's, pretty essential skill.

I'll definitely get this for the PS3 seeing as how I can't see myself doing the Haduken motion on a 360 controller. Playstation is better for fighting games. I can't wait for this game. I'm going to have some epic battles with friends on this.

I only have a 360, so I'm going to have to put up with the terrible 360 d-pad again after MK vs DCU

He is, the roster is impressive in this game. I wish Q was in it.

Nah, the parries are now focus moves. You have to use a focus attack, then dash. Not the same, but yes, definitely still useful.

I play against others every now and then, but I've been practicing solo for a while. I've gotten better with Ryu, and I've been trying out Q and Dudley a bit lately. It certainly helps that I bought an HRAP 3 recently as well.

I'm pretty pumped for this, though I wont have money to buy it. Hopefully a friend of mine hits that up and I can play it.

Basically this. It looks awesome but I won't be able to afford it so hopefully one of my mates will buy it and I'll come round and 'review' it.

I remember playing Street Fighter EX3 and my two main guys were Ryu and Skullomania. That game so awesome. The special finisher that Ryu had would take away almost all your health.

Street Fighter took up a good portion of my childhood and beyond. SFII Turbo on the Super Nintendo is the best fighting game of all time, bar none.

Which is why this game looks so great, it's just an enhanced version of it really, I'll definitely be buying this game. And yeah, I have no idea how Xbox players are going to be any good at this game without buying a different controller or something, the D-pad is horrible on the 360.

You guys should try 2dfighter to hold you over until Street Fighter IV comes out. Then again, it is coming out very soon.
