Been a follower/reader since before the site officially launched, but I didn't sign up and start joining in the forum fun until a few weeks/couple months after the launch.

" @The_A_Drain: Not really, haha. Guile's Flash Kick has different range. FK Flash Kick moves forward and has a larger arc, while LK Flash Kick has some invincibility frames on startup, and has a much smaller arc. "
Blehhhh that's annoying, is the HK flash distance too large to really be able to bait? 
 
I kinda feel really guilty for hoping Guile would be buffed in Super, because he's mental now :\

" I have it also.. playing through right now.  All I want to know is, since some people have mentioned the ending being bad, is the flashlight Alan Wake's girlfriend? "

You are the Flashlight! 
 
@Shirogane:  
 
There is Nightmare difficulty to unlock (which contains some Manuscript pages with more backstory that you cannot find in the other difficulties) but that's about it. 
 
Collectibles there are 106 Manuscript Pages, 100 Coffee Thermoses and like, 30 something posters, 14 or so TV's and like 13 Radios or something to find plus some other little hidden bits and pieces.

I have yet to find a Guile online who doesn't hand me my ass. 
 
It's bonkers, he's gone from being low teir, mid at best, to almost dog-tier, he is unbelievably fast now :\  
 
My only advice would be to jump (Jump?!! Is you nuts?), learn precisely how much range his flash kicks have, and jump directly up (not at an angle) over one of his Sonic Booms at just outside of this range and try to bait that som'bitch. I have no idea if this will work I don't play either Cammy or Guile in SFIV/Super. It may be completely terrible :D 
 
He's my favorite character but, fuck, fuck him :\  As Guy i've found it near impossible to get anywhere near him.

Trade Chat, anyone?"  Oh god no. No. NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOoo *horrible flashbacks*  I turn that mofo off. For good. It's like fucking 4Chan on there even on the roleplay forums. "
What's wrong with 4chan? "
Nothing in it's own rancid little corner. 
 
But Trade Chat is for Trade :\ It's my biggest weakness for nerd rage. Given half a chance i'll utterly freak out over people 'just chatting' in trade, it drives me round the fucking bend. Everybody has one massive nerd rage weakness, trade channel spam is mine, i'm not proud of it. So I just turn it off permanently and only re-activate it when I actively want to trade, but even then it's fucking useless. Nothing makes me angrier than people spouting shitty memes and quotes and other bullshit like that in the trade channel on a roleplay server. I'm seeing red just thinking about it.

Go for it bro, some of those exclusives are awesome. Alan Wake is a good, current one.  
 
As for RRoD, I have no idea. My release console never had any issues but I sold it because I didn't trust it. Ironically, my release-day Elite then proceeded to RRoD twice and have the disc drive die (out of warranty, had to pay for that shit) :( 
 
Hopefully current ones are more reliable.

Quantic Dream. Not Quantum. 
 
And boo-hooo-hooo not everybody likes the same stuff.
I was a massive fan of Fahrenheit, and i'm eagerly awaiting the chance to play Heavy Rain.  I'm also awaiting their sequel to Nomad Soul (Omikron) that game was way ahead of it's time and criminally under appreciated on the Dreamcast.
 
 I also really wish people would stop linking to their shitty wordpress stuff, isn't there a rule against advertising?  If you really want to blog on the site, just blog on the site, sheesh.

Oh... wow... one good song... 
 
Sharp Dressed Man. The rest is god-awful other than Paranoid, but who the fuck wants the Metallica + Ozzy version? Plus it's in older GH/RB games. 
 
I am so glad i'm off the music game bandwagon at the moment. 
 
EDIT: Oh ok 2, I didn't see Queen the first time round.

Absolutely a must purchase in my opinion, you'd be nuts to pass it up for that price. Fantastic game.
