Everyone says it's not bad, but much more testing needs to be done. Plays like ST but with hella extra shit.

the game play does feel like SF2
the control & feel of the game feels like SFA
graphics are like Tekken 5
throwing & EX-moves are like 3S

it's not a bad game. the thing that worries me the most though, is if the characters are balanced. i haven't been following the SRK threads, but I heard the fat yellow guy is really good.

Not like you should listen to most of SRK anyways. For the most part, everyone is playable. Sim and Viper being low tier, but Sim is only low tier because people haven't really figured him out yet. Viper... yeah def. low tier. Everyone else has crap that works.

Rufus is(pretty damn near) close in appearance to that of Bob from Tekken 6; move-wise, i dont know how each one of them plays, but seeing vids of people using rufus show that he seems to have a bit of speed, albeit him being a huge yellow ball of meat(seriously, take away his arms and legs and that what he looks like) and all.

Still, i SO want to play this.

Lol, Rufus isn't that bad, he just has those dumb dive kicks, and that spin move. And the gameplay is good, and solid, Only character that has been "broken" is El Fuerte, has an infinite, but he really needs it, because he has nothing else. Sim is starting to actually be looking mid tier, just need to be discovered more, and C.Viper is so-so as of now, who knows? It's really really new, the tiers can flip, especially with the console release, with Ono hinting that Arcade will be updated to match console.

stupid question: when you say "Sim", who exactly are you referring to(is it an alternate name for one of the characters)?

"infinite", more like loop, since it drains meter.

Fuerte isn't really broken at all, he's pretty crappy outside of loop. Just has best ultra.

So I played SF4 today, two matches at C. Viper and two matches as Ken... I did not win any matches.

Ken plays very much the same but they took out overhead moves for "focus" attacks which are able to cancel out an attack then could possibly do an unblockable (if the buttons are pressed longer). C. Viper is a fun character but I could not get over the fact all of her moves are QCB (quarter circle back) rather than fowards. I will main her when I can get my hands on the console version. Special Moves are the same (but you can't select your S1, S2, or S3 arts) and Ultra Moves are just like specials but the ultra meter or "Revenge Meter" refreshes after every round but your Special Meter stays the same between rounds. You can now cancel EX and Specials moves by dashing inbetween the attack... which will probably take some getting used too but I can see where this could pay off.

People spam fireballs (Sagat & Ryu) like crazy and since you can't parry, you just have to accept them or... learn to focus cancel... but for my first time I could not get the hang of it.

The speed is much slower than Super Turbo and Third Strike but has a good pace to it. The graphics are great, the menus are nice, and the music is decent.

This game will probably be hard to learn in the arcades since so many people will be playing it so I'll really just wait for the console version to come out or wait until Golfland has it and go to MGL for $10 freeplay and probably ditch a day of school lol.

It's obvious you really don't play fighting games very well/much. Slower than 3S? Hardly. They made fireballs useful again. It's just like ST. Unlike say, 3S where fireballs are for the most part useless outside of Urien's and EX versions.

Ken was never about overheads... and Ken doesn't really play the same at all. Ken never plays the same in any game he's in actually. A1-2-3 he played so differently to each other, and same with NG-2i-3S. The only time he's played the same was WW->Super and then in ST he's really different again.

The game looks pretty cool, but I'm pretty garbage at 2D fighters and the game is relatively expensive to play so I haven't tried it out yet.

I like the reports of semi-throwback gameplay though, and there seems to be a lot of potential in the focus attack as a mind-game tool. I've read that Ryu is considered top tier by some, because he has a good fireball trap (EX still knocks down, unlike Ken's) and is way too dangerous to jump at with a full ultra meter.

Pyron

I didn't get into Street Fighter until 3S, I didn't like the whole SF2 series at all (flame me if you like, w/e). I am more of a Soul Caliubur and Brawl player than anyting.

I never liked the SF2 series since all you would hear is haDOUken haDOUken or TIGER TIGER TIGER and if you've played in arcades then you will know what I mean.

Fireballs are useful in 3S, WTF. You EX a fireball, have the opponent either guard or parry them and that gives you time to set up for a super or dash in if you are at a distance.

I main Akuma and fireballs are amazing. Zankouhadouken are like my bread and butter. Also like I said before, the tripple fireballs... most people can't parry all three so that gives me ample time to do that jump in slide kick, dash in, or teleport over so I can get a super or a grab off.

I am easily not the best at 3S but at an arcade, I can put up a fight.

-_- Sigh. If basic fireball traps are beating you in SF2 then you suck. Fireballs are a zoning move. You need to learn to get around them. That's the whole point of projectiles. Hell, just play claw, no one will sit there and throw fireballs. If they do, they'll lose for free.

ANYWAYS. Did you not read what I said. Here I'll say it again.

"Unlike say, 3S where fireballs are for the most part useless outside of Urien's and EX versions. "

The problem is, if you're wasting meter on EX fireballs, then you're losing out on options later on. Meter is extremely important in 3S, and here's the thing... if you throw out an obvious ex fireball, they can parry and super you through the 2nd hit(i.e. parry first hit of ex cancel into super go through 2nd hit via invincibility frames and hit you). The point of EX fireballs are more to throw out something that is relatively safe as an ender, PERHAPS trick them by throwing a fireball instead of something else, without worrying about being punished on block. If you're throwing out 30% of a meter for this, you better have a good reason.

Akuma's fireballs are useful only after a knock down, and his air one as a zoning lockdown, since even after parried you're relatively safe. People shouldn't be parrying red fireball. It opens up too many options for Akuma. Parry first two block the third, that way they're safe from 50/50 and split second parry change.

Once more, Fireballs are in general useless in 3S. Throwing out a fireball randomly gets you killed, you can't use it to zone, and it rewards the opponent generally more than you since recovery is so slow that they get closer to you.

Stick to SC and Brawl before you argue with people that have been playing SF since 1.

lol @ u

Like I said before I am not the best at the game but I know enough to get by AND I said I only got into the SF series due to 3S.

You can argue with me all you like but that isn't gonna change how I play.

One thing I did learn from your rant is EX moves take away 1/3rd of your meter.

3S doesn't play like any other SF game, hell not even like 2i. And technically it's not 30% it's based on meter size, I just threw out the approximate number. But what does that matter, you play Akuma... who has no EX.

Not necessarily.

Within the tekken world, each game since tekken 4 has only been 1 year apart.  Why can't they do that in SF as well?  :)

For the obvious reason.

Alpha/Zero takes place about 5 years before SFII does. Hence why Nash/Charlies is still alive and Guile and him are still war buddies. SF IV is supposed to take place 3 or so years after SFII.
