    Default Street Fighter IV

    Simple question, really: who here's got it?

    I have to say, I was never any good at SFII - and the high-res remake proved to me again that this game is just not for me - but Street Fighter IV, man, this game is one of the best I've ever played. It's been a long time since I really felt the urge to play a beat'em up, but I even ordered 2 SFIV Tournament Arcade Sticks, because this game is so ultra fine, and I wanna play the hell out of it!
    Yes, the game's end boss, Seth, is the cheapest piece of sheit I've ever encountered in a fighting game, but other than that (and apart from the rather 'special' soundtrack) this game is simply flawless. Online is the smoothest and best I've seen in a fighting game as well. Even with people from the US, I've had fights as smooth as if they were sitting next to me on the couch.

    Now I'm desperately waiting for my arcade sticks to arrive, my thumb is already sore from the d-pad!
    If anyone here has the game - gimme a beating online, while I still suck at the game

    Interesting. I had fond memories of SFII. But after buying HD remix I realised that actually, I suck so bad.

    That put me off getting SFIV, that and I kinda think it's a bit funny lookin'. But a lot of folks on my friends list have been playing it recently so maybe it's worth a purchase. I'd prefer to play a demo first though, just in case.

    I've been a Street Fighter fan since I had SF2: Championship Edition on the Megadrive and I really would like to get Street Fighter IV. The only thing is I'm not that good at fighting games. I got Soul Calibur IV last year and I was quite bad at it , especially online.

    Despite my rubbishness I might pick it up anyway. I'll probably play as Ken. It's always fun to do constant HADOUKENS!

    Well, I don't have any stick right now, and doing ultras with a dpad is near impossible for my tortured thumb.

    Got it for the X360. D-pad is absolute ****e, so I'm going to buy a MadCatz FightPad.

    Personally, my biggest complaints are 1) Seth is just excessively difficult to beat on any difficulty level and 2) how to unlock Akuma and Gouken - apparently you have to unlock the other characters, then finish arcade mode with 2 perfects, 3 ultra finishes, and no continues, while playing in downtown Newcastle, wearing Jacques Villeneuve's authentic racing suit used in the 1998 Formula One season, all while a crowd of exactly 32 performs a ritualistic rain dance behind you and Thom Yorke is reciting paella recipes through a loudspeaker.

    Other than that, playing versus others is FUN.

    I got it the other day and had a good go on Friday. Found the easiest way to win fights was good old button bashing. Only had 1 fight online but had a good go with the challenges and the arcade. Seth at the end is ridiculously hard (at medium anyway), always seemed to win the first round and then barely touch him in the next 2 rounds. Didn't do my hand much good using the dualshock but I refuse to shell out for a special joystick. Can't see me playing it that much but will play people in my friends list from time to time.

    I always chose the Tekken series over Street Fighter (or Mortal Kombat), but seeing the videos and Gametrailers.com's review of it made me consider buying it... the game looks so fluid and fun, and I really liked the art direction for it too, wonderful trailers and character animations.

    *goes off to ponder some more*

    got SFIV last week but I can only bust the old SFII moves, can't seem to nail any combos yet.

    I also bought one of those madcatz fightpads which does help those shoryukens.
