GET HYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYPE FOR SUPER STREET FIGHTER IV!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
 
OK, had to get that out of the way first.
 
With Super Street Fighter IV out tomorrow (well, in NA anyways), I thought it would be fun to share some quick thoughts I had with the game.  Before that though, I'm going to share my player data.  Pictures go!
 

 Player Record





 
 Championship Records






 Character Record





 
 Character Record 2





 
 Character Record 3






 Character Record 4   (Has Gen at the bottom)





 
 Medal List






Damn, that's a lot of info to take in.
 

 
Over the years I have played Street Fighter casually.  It was simple enough for me to do some basic stuff like throwing fireballs and doing spinning pile drivers.  When I first started though I had no idea how to do charge moves at all.  I was dumb and stupid as a kid.  Later I finally understood how to them.
 

 Say hello to my little friend.
Back on track.  I've been playing SF for years.  What brought me back into the franchise and made me play it all the time now was HD Remix.  When I first came out I was like "That's really cool, but it's kinda expensive."  Later while listening to Jeff talk about the game, it made me want to get the game.  So I bought the game and started playing it on pad.  I was kinda bad though.  I remember Jeff talking about how he liked playing E. Honda and I tried him out in HDR and liked him.  Thanks to Jeff, I play Honda.  Go figure.  I stuck with E. Honda and kept playing as him and when SFIV come out, I brought my basic Honda skills from HDR and brought them to SFIV.  When I first played the game I was like "Damn, this game is a little hard and different."  After a week or so I got used to the game engine and stuck with the basics with Honda.  After some time I decided to try out Blanka and I actually switched to him for a few months before going back to Honda.  The from then on I stuck with Honda and I'm still kicking it with him today.
 
Later on August 13th 2009 (two days after my birthday), I finally decided to get an arcade stick.  Since then this game has been like crack to me.  I've been playing it almost everyday since then.  Well, I did play it a ton before I got my stick, but not as often as I do now.
 
I guess that's a little brief thing about how I got started.  With Super finally hitting store shelves tomorrow, I will be addicted to the new game as well.
 Sagat, you are a cool character in all, but why do you have to be a dick?

 
Now I should share some thoughts about SFIV.  Like some of you may know, it was my favorite game to came out last year.  Being my favorite game of last year doesn't making it 100% perfect though.  The main nag I had about SFIV was the character balance.  Sure the game is really balance, but the top 5 characters in the game just blows everyone else way.  As a Honda player, I hated fight against Sagat and Zangief.  Sagat can just throw fireballs, turtle, and Honda can't do much about it.  As for Zangief, you can just abuse hist Lariat and Honda doesn't have a lot of options to stop it.  He can also you Lariat and completely shut out Hondas Ultra.  It just drove me insane and made me curse at my TV.
 
Enough of me bitching about why I hate Honda's weaknesses.  Let's talk about what I'm looking forward to.  The thing I'm looking forward to most is the character balancing.  Hopefully with all the top characters being nerfed some what, I might have a better chance of winning and not fell like I'm being robbed when I lost in SF4.  I'm also looking forward to the new characters as well, especially Makoto.  As a Makoto player (that wasn't good) from 3rd Strike, I'm looking forward to her the most.  I really like her move set a lot.  There is just something about it that I love.  Maybe it's because she is some what similar to Honda and rocket forward and fast speeds and do big damage.  For the other new stuff, I'm looking forward to all the new online features as well, especially the new ranking system.  With it being similar to Tekken 6, each character has there own rank and I find that to be very awesome.
 
Enough of me rambling on.  This thing is dragging out now.  I just want it to be tomorrow so I can spend the next 700 years playing Super Street Fighter IV or keep playing it till the next version of SFIV comes out.

Oh man. I love Don't Copy that Floppy. It is, by far, my favorite educational propaganda video from the early 90s.
 
Oh wait, this thread is about Street Fighter? Whatever.
