My System Specs

Default Street Fighter IV

Surprised to see there wasn't already a thread up about this one.

It's been many many years since I spent unhealthy amounts of times in video arcades playing Street Fighter II until my eyes bled, and I lost track of all the different iterations of the game.

Read up on the reviews of this one and decided it was a must buy, so rushed out and got it over the weekend (and proceeded to play it in all it's high-def glory until my eyes bled)

Take the original Street Fighter II, add beautiful graphics, some fancy-dancy new combo's & specials, a couple of new characters (new to me at least) and you have one heck of a game.

Oh yeah, and the obligatory cheating-cheeze-move-using-beat-you-over-and-over-until-it-makes-you-want-to-throw-your-controller-through-your-shiny-new-large-screen-plasma-endgame boss.

Seth I hate you.

If you ever played the original SF2 (and who didn't?) or enjoy fighting games in general you must pick this one up!

Now to go get a Live subscription so I can go shoryken people online...

I've got it on the PS3...I'm really enjoying introducing my son to it, as I spent many a quarter on lunch break at the local convenience store....

Fighting games don't do it for me anymore but I did spend pocketfuls of quarters on SF2 at the local laundromat. Sadly there were no arcades in my hood. Just convenience stores and laundromats, lol.

Ah, I miss the good old days of arcades. They warm my heart oh so much.

But yes, been playing it for the PS3, and honestly, Abel can go die in a fire.

"Why hello there, I'm Bison, I'm going to do a Psycho Crusher against you..oh wait...you blocked it? Oh, and threw me, well, I guess that's fair enough. Just let me get back u...oh...you threw me again? Erm, ha...OK, I can deal with tha...AGAIN?"

He really deserves to die in a fire.

On a different note, I'm only waiting to receive my custom case in the mail and I can finish building my arcade stick! OH YEAH!
