Any game featuring Poison is a game worth playing.

Whats the 5th character

Posted by vr00m

Out before the capcom cup

Edited by DeviTiffany

I'm excited to see Poison in a proper Street Fighter game. I loved her in SFxT even if that game wasn't the best.

Still wonder who the 5th character is.

Edited by Phished0ne

Team Battle mode? Bought.

Edited by IamTerics

Pretty damn good trailer.

Posted by NickDynmo

Online practice mode sounds quite handy.

1. why would i ever not red focus? just absorb all their hits and bam

2. why would i ever use 1 ultra instead of 2

At this point, this shit is not even worth joking about.

Posted by OwnlyUzinWonHan

It's pretty much exactly what the people who are still playing SFIV want, isn't the upgrade only like $15 or $20?

Red focus costs two bars of meter, using double ultra gives them damage nerfs.

Ultra Combo Double scales the Ultras by 60% or something like that. Also it's character dependent. Mainly grapplers will benefit from the Double Ultra.

@dilbyo:

Red focus costs meter.

The double ultra option means each ultra does less damage. If you are really only going to use one, you should still just pick one.

Posted by BBAlpert

Even though I think they've gone on record explicitly that the 5th character isn't Asura, I still think that'd be rad.

Or fuck it, just put Scorpion in there.

That's all well and good, but I know this would just devolve into me trying to hit people with the Raging Demon over and over.

I'm holding off for Mega-Ultra Street Fighter 4 Deluxe.

I agree with this. If the new characters were the only difference, I would totally drop the money for it. Street Fighter IV might still be my pick for Game of the Generation, if I was forced to choose one. I didn't understand SF for a long time, but when a friend and I decided to learn SF it had more of an impact than pretty much any other game. I adore it.

Pretty much that. Armor breaking moves will also still break the focus on the first hit.

Agreed.

If we're talking about Capcom's Poison, I've come to terms with the possibility that she may or may not officially be a he depending on the day of the week. Still crazy easy on the eyes.

That byline makes my poor, neglected HRAP cry all over again.

Posted by Axel_IX

I know I'm gonna get this when it's out, but still only play Makoto. This is my dark curse.

Still, loving their support. Great to see more Third Strike/Alpha guys and having Poison in a good fighting game is never not a good thing. Still want to know about that fifth new character.

Posted by VierasTalo

If there was Skullamania in this game I would buy it.

Can I pretend Poison always was and is a woman?

GET HYPE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Is it just me, or dose the music in this trailer sound like Queens Harbor from Tekken 6?

All the console sticks work on PC, too, so just get one from Mad Catz.

Posted by GunsAreDrawn

I really enjoyed Street Fighter 4 on 360 but my experience was ruined by my crappy internet connection and the 360 controller - you ever use the d-pad and get less responsive moves, or you use the analog and get blisters on your thumb.

If I bought this version I would get it for PC, but does anyone even play this on PC?

I'll be protecting the Russian skies with my Gief come Ultra. =)

I find good matches within seconds (in Europe), the scene is pretty active on PC. I can only imagine it gets better the older these current/last gen consoles get.

Ultra is separate from AE, its not a free update.

Posted by GaspoweR

@animasta: She's confirmed to be a post-op transsexual, right?

Edited by MrGetBonus

It's not ALL of it :( I've been lied to.

Posted by Humanity

Now that they added Poison to the roster I can buy it.

Edited by Tblockkiller

@gaspower: the video showed you could buy the upgrade for SSF4 or buy it separately. With GFW closing shop, i guessing you can't buy the upgrade on GFW? so what happens to those who bought the GFW version of SSF4. do tell me we have to buy full game again. no way i will do that.

well yeah, but even if she was pre op she'd still be a woman

well sure, if you're a gross transphobe who actually has to pretend that trans women are women

Posted by LarryDavis

@hailinel: Agreed.

@zhabermann: Except that whole thing was because of a weird localization issue, she was originally a woman.

How long have you been a gross phobophobe who actually has to demean people who don't conform to your personal morality?

Sigh...here we go again.

Poison's first appearance in Final Fight featured her and a palette swap character named Roxy as recurring minor enemies for the player to fight. Named after the band by an unnamed female employee at Capcom, she was designed by Akira Yasuda to contrast against the bigger characters in the game and move about randomly. The characters were originally planned to be normal females, but were changed to transsexual females due to the suggestion that "hitting women was considered rude" in America and the concern that feminist groups would sue.

I can't believe I'm actually discussing the gender of a fictional character but evenmore in people taking offense in that someone pretends she's (according to Capcom) a she.

as if any of this negates the transphobia in the original remark
