Mine is probably Abel, but i'm quite the n00b.
What about you?
And my question is regarding ultra combos, specifically Abel's.
I'm hitting the button combination correctly, but nothing happens.
It either executes the super combo, or it does the first blow of the change of direction move.
Is there something i'm doing wrong?

If it's executing the Super Combo, you're either hitting the wrong punch button or don't have your Revenge meter high enough. Remember, Supers are triggered by light or medium punches, Ultras are triggered by Fierce only.

Good ol' Ryu for me.

Hmm thats a tough one, my favourite guy to use it Honda but Zangeif just looks so great, he's such an over the top sterotype and him shouting "FOR MOTHER RUSSIA" when he does his ultra is just the iceing on the cake

Although I don't use him in SFIV my favorite character has always been ken. As for your question I would assume that sometimes your not hitting all three of the punch buttons at the same time your hitting 2 of them just a little bit before the last one.
 
@End_Boss:  Thats not entirely correct your can do weak, strong, and fierce versions of supers. Ultras are used by doing whaterer motion then pressing all three punch or all three kick buttons.

No, super is done with any single punch button, ultra is done by pressing all three.  
 
If you are trying to get the super, you can Piano the input (hit all three and release all three in rapid sequence) which can help sometimes.  For the ultra is usually just not connecting with all 3 punch buttons at the exact same time.  check in training mode with inputs on.

Design and personality wise, I love Zangief; however I can barely pull off his 360 command throws, let alone his 720's so I rarely use him.
I main Akuma though, although I'm still terrible.

#11 Posted by Gearhead (2251 posts) -

T-Hawk, such a fucking awesome character and a shame that the was not in Street Fighter 4.

#12 Posted by KillaMaStA (859 posts) -

I love Gouken, but ive never played a street fighter game. 
 
He just looks badass.

But yeah, Akuma.

Hey I do, I don't play much online but if I do I use her or Dan only because I use a controller on the PS3 so the it's easy to carry out the moves for me.
#16 Posted by c1337us (5751 posts) -

I like the mix it up a lot who I play with. But as I usually say when times get tough I fall back on Ryu.

#18 Posted by skrutop (3615 posts) -

I use Cammy, but Fei Long is my favorite character.  His ultra is so cool.

#19 Posted by TheHBK (5488 posts) -

I hate more characters than love them.  Some are staples like Ryu, Ken, Chun Li and Guile, cant have a SF without them.  My favorite though is Sagat, cant beat him saying Tiger all the time, just awesome. 
But as I was saying, the characters I hate.  Rufus, fat piece of shit that looks like he should be playing DDR instead of fighting.  Then there is El Fuerte, just another way for the Japanese to show us they can fuck up something bad ass by making it Japan-gay, with this guy loving to cook instead of just being a bad ass luchador. 
#20 Posted by Scooper (7881 posts) -

Sagat, Gen and Guile are my favourite characters although I don't play as any of them. They're just very interesting characters and have engaging stories and motives.

#21 Posted by Flushes (329 posts) -

Ibuki is my all-time favorite Street Fighter character, and I've only played Third Strike maybe twice.

#22 Posted by sixghost (1679 posts) -

Viper, she's just so unlike any other character in 4.

#23 Posted by calidan777 (853 posts) -

Ken,always has been and probably always will be.

#24 Posted by CannibalFerox (285 posts) -

The guy who yells "Fight!"

VEGA!

#26 Posted by wfolse1 (455 posts) -

No question, Abel.  I just really like what he brings to the game.  His moveset is super interesting to me in that he is, in a lot of ways, a mixture of Fei Long and Zangief.  However, with his roll move, he has a great tool that neither Fei nor Gief possess, a way to effectively control horizontal space that does double duty as a useful cross-up tool.

DAN!

#28 Posted by Jolly_Lolly (3537 posts) -

Well, here's my SF:IV timeline:
 
1st Main, Sagat: "YEAH ALRIGHT LET'S DO THIS SHIT!!" *2 months go by* "FUCK Sagat, overpowered P.O.S."
2nd Main, Balrog: "..hey! This guy's pretty kickass!" "...ok I'm bored."
3rd Main, Ryu: "Simple enough, has pretty good combos." 
4th Main, M. Bison: "fuck it, I'm going BISON BITCHEZ" *actually got above average with bison* "SHIT YEAH!! ^______^" 
 
So yeah, I have lost all the skill I had with Sagat, still decent with 'Rog, have gotten worse with Ryu because of so much Bison, and Bison just kicks ass XD.
 
..one more thing: "THIS PLACE SHALL BECOME YOUR GRAVE MOTHA FUCKA ^_____^"

Tempted to say Ryu, but I feel I should represent and say Cammy. Also it's easier to win with Cammy online because nobody knows how to fight her just yet.
#30 Posted by SamStrife (1282 posts) -
I'm gona represent my main and go with Blanka, he's quite an awesome character if you ask me.

That's because she got fucked over in SFIV. In every game she's been in, with the exception of SFIV, she's been top tier. I had planned to main her before the game came out, but man, when she came out to be second to last tier, you know something went horribly wrong.
 
On that note, my favorite character... I don't really have one. My main is Cammy, so I guess she'd be my favorite.

#41 Posted by CanadianBaconX (170 posts) -
@PureRok His left foot is sooo small in the picture XD (I'm aware it's just perspective and it's suppose to be far way and all that but, still... looks like a baby's foot...)


Oh and on topic... Honda is kewl cause, he likes eating Chanko Stew, Sumo wrestling and asking the other fighter if they wanna grab a bite to eat. :D

#42 Posted by Xcessive (109 posts) -

#48 Posted by ArbitraryWater (11796 posts) -

It always seems to be new users with under 100 posts that resurrect threads with questionable comments. Bah, whatever. It's still valid, I guess.
I like Dan.
