Getting Hype this Weekend!

So yeah, I'm pretty excited for this weekend!!!  

If my brain's still processing things correctly, then I get to participate in the first ever U.S. Super Street Fighter IV Tournament hosted by Seth Killian himself.  The only problem is that I've been spending the last couple months playing  the new BlazBlue: Continuum Shift @ Rack-N-Cue @ SFSU.  I'm just thinking to myself who I should main in this SSFIV tourney and how rusty I probably am?  Should I just play what I know, or go in with someone crazy, like Cody, and lose on my first match? :p  
 
Beyond that, I also get to play a ton of pre-released Capcom stuffs such as Dead Rising 2 and Lost Planet 2

Hell, this is like gunna be the best weekend of this year by far!!!   Man, could it really be any better?  I think not.

But it is true that there can be only one.

Speaking of, if you do kill me, can I at least have my $30 entrance fee back?  You can just toss it in my coffin.  
 
Lol, seriously though, anyone in San Francisco this weekend could probably get in on this if there's still space available... I dunno.  You can go down to Cards and Comics Central and see.

@Luke: I do live in the area, but I plan to drop a lot of money for SSF4 and a new stick to compliment my old one (so nobody would have to preplan to bring sticks or fight over using a stick). I'm sure the event will be hype and worth it, but i can wait a month before i get my hands on it.

@Luke: I feel like you need to take a lot of pictures at these things and blog about it. I Had no idea we had someone actively going to tournaments on Gianbomb. Nice job man!

 I'll try, if I can get into training by myself or a friendly match with some nub.  I pretty sure his Jumping HK, MP+HP link, L SRK, Ultra works though, with no need for FADC.  I dunno, if I remember correctly, I prefer that combo, but I don't ever play Ken to tell you the truth :p

I'll try if it's allowed.

DJ actually looks pretty solid... almost like a better Guile! (oh! burn)

It looks like Online Registrations are open now too!  So, if any of you peeps wanna come-out to WonderCon this weekend and play some Super Street Fighter IV, or whatever-else, you should buy a ticket if they're not sold-out!  I'm not kidding, Capcom is gunna be there in full force! :D 
 
It also looks like the guys over @ Comic Vine are gunna be there too

I also found this on jgonzo's blog that he wrote yesterday! 
 

 
"Good news for folks attending WonderCon this year, as we got a ton in store for Capcom fans! From showing off our latest games, to giving out awesome free swag, to having Udon artists doing sketches and signings. Here to talk about more specifics is our very own Sr. Director of Creative Services, Francis Mao:  

Once again, Capcom sports the biggest booth (#833( on the show floor as we present demos of hot, upcoming new games (many for the first time anywhere) to the public including: Super Street Fighter IV, Lost Planet 2, Monster Hunter Tri, Final Fight: Double Impact, Mega Man Zero Collection, Street Fighter IV for the iphone, and Dead Rising 2!

We'll be giving out tons of free collectibles to all those that demo our games such as posters, game demos, and controller skins. In addition, we'll be raffling off serious collectibles such as the Lost Planet 2 Salamander boss plushie, and Street Fighter IV-etched iTouches and Blackberry.

Long Vo, famed artist for Udon Comics' Street Fighter comic books, will be onsite daily to do lightning-fast sketches as well as other super-talented artists still to be scheduled.

The Capcom store will be featuring serious collectibles as always plus all the Capcom games you need to fill out your gaming library. Look for our daily specials as well as our usual "Sunday afternoon blowouts" at the end of the show.

In addition to our games, we'll have our annual Capcom Blowout presentation on Friday afternoon, from 5pm-6pm in Room 103. We'll be showcasing all our upcoming titles as well as having an impromptu Super Street Fighter IV Tournament hosted by SF champion, Seth Killian. The winner will reap heaps of accolades as well as a Capcom goodie pack worth its weight in gold. Fans of the Resident Evil movie series are in for a special treat as we co-present Paul Anderson and Ali Larter from the upcoming Resident Evil Afterlife 3D movie - who will be signing autographs on Saturday. The first 500 people to enter the doors for the Capcom panel will get a ticket to the world premiere of the Resident Evil Afterlife 3D movie trailer at the Metreon theaters next to Moscone South for a Friday, 7:30pm showing including a collector's tshirt as well as popcorn and soda! 

I'm out of breath describing all the details of Capcom's presence at Wonder Con. For those that have visited us before in past Wonder Cons, you already know the massive attraction that is the Capcom booth - worth the price of admission alone. For those of you joining us for the first time, we welcome you and look forwards to seeing you there!"

@Luke: I guess I should have elaborated. Currently, unless a counter hit, fadc ultra with Ken is partial, and results in 300ish damage. Some people are saying fadc ultra results in full ultra without counter hit in Super, but nobody has actually confirmed it. I will wash your car for a month if you try it for me!

Haha!  Alright.  So you're saying that the Ultra only hits like once, or doesn't do the final big hit or something?  Or does it do the full combo, but just not the full damage? 
 
Maybe I'll try it on the vanilla game tomorrow, so I can immediately spot the difference when I go.  Then I'll try it in Super, if I can, but I'm not sure if they'll let us play in training to see the exact damage output.

@Luke: You  know how Ken's full ultra starts with the gut punch, then flurry of kicks, and finally the vertical uppercut? Partial (ie normal after fadcing an srk) is just the vertical portion. This is supposedly changed in Super. It won't deal massive damage, but it won't be pathetic like its current state either. As it stands, a neutral roundhouse xx ex srk does more damage then any srk fadc ultra, which is super retarded.
 
Thanks a bunch. No biggie if you can't test it out though, I am just an impatient bitch!

I'm on the Lost Planet 2 beta demo and loving it. The game rocks in every department.   Go with what you know and polish up fast, you should watch some Youtube videos as part of your training also. 
 
Good luck Luke, may the force be with you.

@Linkyshinks:  Thanks!  Yeah, I was playing the Lost Planet 2 Beta Demo some last night.  It's pretty kewl, but it seems like there's too much grenade spam! :p  Also, it'd be nice if we could level-up.  Other than that it's a lot of fun!

OK, I see what you mean now!  I think it's done at about the 40 seconds mark in this video (even though he did it a tad too early, because he probably knew it'd be partial anyway): 
 
  
I'll try to try this out sometime over the next 3 days in Super
