Giant Bomb Street Fighter IV Group - Join Today!

#1 Edited by JJOR64 (18995 posts) -
turbomonkey138 and I thought it would be an awesome idea to make a Steam group for Street Fighter IV Giant Bomb users.  The main purpose for this is to easily chat with other members of the SFIV Giant Bomb community across all platforms (Xbox 360, PS3, and PC).  Whether it be to make a match or chat with other members, it can all be done with the ease of instant messaging (IM).  This can also be helpful for our PC players as well if they own the game on Steam and can instantly match up right away (like myself).  This is an open group so anyone can join.  Hope to see you guys there!

Download Steam (Direct Link To Download)
 
If you guys have any questions, please ask.
 
P.S.  Would anyone like to make a sick logo for our Steam group?  I can't use photoshop at all.  :(
P.S.S.  Would a possible sticky on the SFIV board be possible?

I don't have steam, or even a good pc for that matter, but is this basically a chat room?

HEY NOW. Lol I've bought two copies of sfiv for 360 so I think I'm somewhat justified....I obviously don't use it to play online....I just use the pc version for recording training mode sessions

I'll join up, but I never play PC version online, horrible lag.

This but I'll join it anyway. I'm barely on Steam now, though. I used to be on it always.
 
Edit: My Steam name is danger danger

I almost never have steam on anymore but I've joined anyway. I like joining things.

At least you don't have to unlock any characters in Super 4.

Yeah thats true, just sucks cause thats what keeping me from putting the game in. Just the thought of the empty character screen is aggravating.

I'd say on average about 17 times worse, since the Xbox is fine.
#31 Posted by monkeyroach (175 posts) -

17 times worst huh?Shit dont lag any more then the 360 version.The problems is there is no usa players.Find a usa player and it will be just as good as the 360.

#32 Edited by lordofultima (6249 posts) -

I can play against the same people, and it's much worse. 4 bar connections run like crap, they run fine on 360.

#33 Posted by AniMoney (957 posts) -

Xbox doesn't lag too bad for me. Of course it depends on your connection and who you play, but for the most part I can find decent connections to play against.

Actually no the PC version deiffantly has some extra lag with it. 
 
If you have the option play on 360/PS3

I can vouch for this as well.
 
I noticed games on the PC would start at a high bar count when a person joined the lobby but if you waited a few seconds the bar would drop. So it was best to wait a good 8 seconds or so before accepting a fight. If the bar didn't fluctuate, the latency was fine, but if it dropped (even if only down to three bars), more often than not the lag was pretty bad.

I tend to get the opposite. I can join a two bar connection, then when we get going it jumps up to 3 or 4.

I really like this, but since my pc is basically my tv I'm always on steam. Might be easier to organise matches this way.

#38 Posted by Belonpopo (1823 posts) -

Dude, just tell me how to unlock Gouken.

#39 Posted by HDTran (14 posts) -

PC version definitely has lag on it. Like others mentioned in the thread, I play the same people over their same connections on X360 and PC--PC is always always worse.
