August 8th for Steam and Retail I believe.

Playing it right now and it's pretty sweet. Hugo is fun and Decapre is neat.

Beat em up, guy! Go for BROKE!

Well I'm pretty excited about this.

Waiting for the complete Steam version in August. There's some decent, cheap Mayflash sticks that I can replace with nicer parts, and it'll run/look nicer. But I'm pretty excited for it all told.

Preemptive comment:

If you don't know why it's good that a competitive game is still being supported so long after it's release, please don't comment...or comment knowing I will shake my head at you.

My comment:

I think this is awesome. $15 for a re-balance to keep the game alive is great. I won't give them full credit for the "new" characters and "new" stages. It's disingenuous for them to call them that. Still, I'm excited for the new modes, I think most of the balance changes are good. Dhalsim will always be no-tier. Chun seems better. I'm in.

Now start making Capcom All-Stars with the Marvel engine and without the licencing entanglements.

@theinnkeeper: Start shaking your head then.

Seriously though; I'm glad the community has something to play. As for me, like before with the other versions of SF4, I'm not going anywhere near this thing. No one to play against to actually learn anything; I usually just get stomped and receive classy comments from the people that just wasted me. You know, really helpful stuff, like "Just Stop Playing" or "How pathetic."

Couple that with a work schedule that requires me to be at work at night and, well, I only get to play with the worst of the worst (personality wise) it seems. Though the term was used to describe a different game's community, the word "Toxic" fits perfectly here: They don't want to help you and laugh you off when you ask for it.

Enjoy the updates I guess. I really can't go near another fighting game ever again. I used to enjoy playing them too...

Unfortunately, you'll have to wait until they come out with Super-duper Ultra Mega Street Fighter IV Alpha Omega DX++ Edition.

I won't buy this, but I can't wait to see what all these changes do to the tournament play at EVO this year. I love watching people (sako) play Street Fighter 4.

Actually the community varies but the ratio is in favor of being helpful. I don't know where you get those type of messages from (I can assume online where trolls is obviously prevalent) but resources like Shoryuken have places that welcome new players and help them.

Oh my mistake, I should have been more clear about who was saying this stuff. It was mostly from people in the game chat itself. It was the PS3 version of the original SF4 at the time as well. Obviously I expected some trash talk but this was more of an after the match thing when people would mock me regardless of how I did (usually bad) and then laugh even harder when I asked for perhaps a private match to help me out.

Don't misunderstand me, I know a lot of people don't have time to take me under their wing or something, but a little help beyond comments like "Why would I help a scrub like you?" would be great. I'll try the site you've mentioned (I have certainly heard of it before) and see where it goes.

Nice Kyo icon by the way.

I think Hugo Andore is the stuff of my nightmares. There's just something so horrifying about that face.
