it won't be full priced, so 8 new characters and the original game for about $30?
which would also have all the costume dlc and tweaked characters, i think its a good deal

Japan is most likely getting arcade. Which is where it matters. no one plays arcades in the US


From what I heard Japan isn't getting arcade either, so the players are pretty upset over there too. And a lot of the US players are petitioning for arcade here, especially in the places that have only played console the whole time. NYC has only one arcade that has it (chinatown) whereas SoCal's scene has about 8 or so. The main US scene and players are the exclusive arcade players (with the exception of a few such as Yeb and Floe).

Yeah it's a standalone game, the director said there's way too much new content for it to be DLC. It's not like they're going to add moves, ultras, 8 chars, stages, etc. with just a download. It's a new game. But, it won't be @ full price probably $30. They said there will be some nice extra stuff if you still have your SF4 disc but that's just to appease fans I guess. Hopefully they don't rob us again with the alternate costumes (that stuff was on the disc already the DLC just unlocks it).

it's all opinion, and considering i haven't played in a while, but what comes to mind is Balrog's headbutt - it definitely needs it's invincibility removed, and should be somewhere like E.honda's headbutt

and yeah, sagat used to take more damage when coming down from a tiger uppercut in the sf2 games, now its not as punishing missing a uppercut

can't think atm

The low tier characters like Vega definitely need some upgrades, Sagat's the only one who needs rebalancing imo. Every other high/mid tier char is pretty solid with their own strengths/weaknesses.

Man $40? I guess its fair. I just hope they add a lot of shit then, I want to get my money's worth because that's only $20 off a brand new game.

Zangief is very beatable if you play carefully. Bait the 3P Lariat with a Jab hadoken = free jump in combo. Blocked green hand = free combo. Bait SPD and backdash = another combo. Sometimes you'll have to win by time-out, but a win is a win. Zangief has too many character weakenesses and lopsided matchups and they practically never win tournaments, in USA and Japan.

i would go for a slightly weaker but faster zangief any day. he is my favorite but lately he's been a complete fail for me.

Vega has more things wrong for him than just shitty ass damage. Did they really think he was so good that he needed moves where he can throw off his mask/claw? His ultra is just as useless as Guiles, at least Guile's chips a little but if you block Vega's ultra nothing happens for him except he gets punished for it. If you're going to make it that hard to land his ultra at least make it like Akumas where he does a lot of damage. Vega's only takes off like 1/4 at most and you have almost no chance of landing it because people block it.

I have seen good Vegas and its always an uphill battle because they take so much damage and do so little. They basically have to put in twice as much effort as a normal character to win. It's the same way for most low tier chars: Sakura, Dhalsim, whatever. It takes way more effort to win. Don't get me wrong they can win, its just harder to do so as opposed to using other chars.

More characters need ways to set up their ultras, charge characters with the exception of Balrog don't have a reliable way to set up their ultra. Bison has what, focus attack or double midair mp to ultra? But, Ryu has a million ways to set up his ultra/super.

Except for Gen most console characters suck.

Zangief is pretty much fine as he is, it's just a matchup people have to learn. Maybe he can get a little faster but I'd like for him to take more damage. Imagine using Vega or Sakura vs Zangief.

I'm sticking to my point that low tier chars have a serious disadvantage and with the exception of Sagat the other chars are pretty good for where they're at.

vega is ass.
any character that cant combo into their ultra reliably is ass.
hopefully they fix that in super.

they gave deejay a crumple stun after his ex kicks. hopefully guile/vega will get some buffs as well.
