I'll give it another week before I decide what the formats going to be (see if more people show). Otherwise, I say we all just dive into PSN chat and just get some banter and games going.

what do most people on Giantbomb play SF4 on, PS3 or 360?

360 by a long shot.

You didn't have me, even if it was 360 I wouldn't attend.

Just throwing it out there, there is no need for a 360 tourny, might as well give me the crown and move on to bigger and better things. Yep, just went there.

But I heard down the grapevine, Stag is free. Oh wait, your name is Stang. Silly me, my mistake!

Well you know I'd be up for it, mainly because I said so here; (suggesting your thread title in the process.)
Sadly though I'd have to sit this one out as I'll be stuck in Wales with no internet. 
 (I've tried to get rid of the bold but it just isn't possible.)

@thegoldencat7: That's shit, dude. I always look forward to our bouts. When you throw in some pressure as well, they're usually quite tense.
 

@Stang:

Shame, ours have gone down pretty well. Bar the occassional spot of lag and couple of no-shows.
 

@Scullinator:

There's at least twenty PS3 players on the boards, so there's always people to play with.
 
@OwnlyUzinWonHan: :( 
 
Lots of input from our resident couple Stang and Ultima. Nice to see you guys still going strong, bickering.

@GetEveryone: 
Yeah theres a good Caledonian rivalry going on, or there would be if you didn't keep winning all the time. Though I think Ive got a positive record against your non-Ken characters.
I'll be back in around a month. Theres always next time.

@GetEveryone: 
Well played last night. Think I recovered a little bit of honour in the second session after playing like an arsehole initially. 
 
On the subject of your Gen perfect; that was against Chun-li who Ive barely ever used. 
...And I perfect-ed your Rufus a while back. 
Also Crimson F-ing Viper.

I need to work on my block strings: whenever I actually land a poke I end up dropping a link and the stinking srk gets torn to shreds. Good thing scissor kicks seem to be so punishable. Your headstomps were harder to guess at last night, too; you caught me with quite a few. I think of all the people on GB I've now played you the most. This calls for one thing: money match!

Because if you like fighting games, then you're going to own a console. Its as simple as that.

This thread is officially derailed. I'm taking the initiative and renaming it THE MONEY MATCH THREAD
 
...Of course, all the games will be thrown, otherwise I won't make enough to buy all the shit I want.

@GetEveryone: I'm up for another tournament.  The only thing is my bluray drive died on Monday night.  I'm guessing That's probably why we had connection problems the other day.  I'm hoping to get a new laser by end of next week.

Hey, I'm always up for whatever kind of tourney you're throwing. Depending on how much free time/busy I am you might see a serious me, or a sand bagging me.

" Yo Bombheads (PS3 guys, I'm talking to you). So SF4 has provided us with a handful of successful tournies now, and seeing as the vanilla version of the game is about to be laid to rest, I reckoned we should send it off with a bang: try and set up a big bracketed tournament, draw in as many people as we can, and like StaticFalconers a few weeks back, play it out in one weekend, rather than dragging it out. Since we've effectively just had one, I don't know what the feeling would be on having it right now or in a few weeks. Just let me know what you think with regard to the format and time, etc. and we'll see what can be done.  Cheers. "
Can we do it online and w/ the 360? 
 
That would get WAY larger attendence. I like the idea of doing one final tourney.

@StaticFalconar:  Brian Blessed says: "Saaaaandbaaaagging!" But sweet, dude. I was thinking of doing it league style if there's fewer of us this time round. I might PM some guys and see if they fancy it. *Twiddles fingers*...exam leave... *shrugs*
 
@demontium: As far as I know all the 360 players like fighting each other, but hate their GB tournies. 
 
I could have organised it, but after the last RROD I gave up on the Xbox permanently;  it's resigned to paperweight status.
 
Plus we get a decent attendance at ours and they run smoothly.

Yeah but that tournament was sort of a fuck-up, even though it completed. Not even a loser bracket and it took them 34 years to finish.

Get out of playing Gen while you can. As a person who plays the old bastard you will soon learn that he sucks and isn't really worth the effort.

@GetEveryone: Considering that any legitimacy that Gen has now will be lost in Super Street Fighter IV, yes. I'm pretty sure most Gen players will be dropping him.

@lordofultima: You sound authoritative. From whats been bandied about, mk>hands is still possible, but a follow-up one can only be done once and through FADC (though there is an awful lot of conjecture here). Even if it is removed completely, it wasn't his only viable tool. From what SK has said recently, his actual buffs may outweigh any nerfs they mave have given him. Adopt a wait and see approach and try not talking down to me?

Why don't we all stop bitching about Gen until the game comes out. A free Ultra off a wall dive sounds pretty good.

@Jeffsekai: Totally. 
 
Every character is more or less viable; so much bullshit surrounds tier-lists and characters that its like wading through shite. Granted some have poorer match-ups and others are weak or have semi-useless moves, but given time and effort anyone can be played at a decent level. Whatever they do to Gen (or anyone else for that matter), I'm sure it'll work out fine.

All im sayin is that we don;t let Naplam get away with bitching about Guile all the time. Gen players don't get a free ride.

@Jeffsekai: I'm not a Gen player and I'm not bitching, I'm stoked about him sucking ass. He could always wall dive to ultra, that's no different. 
 
@GetEveryone: Who is talking down to you? I said it's likely most players will switch from Gen based on reports that he's a steaming pile. I didn't call you a gaywad or anything. Sheesh.

I know everything is conjecture until the game comes out, but MrWizard flat out said mk xx hands is gone. 
 
There's also this. 
 
Nobody knows how much this will matter though because he will be different in other areas as well.

@AniMoney: I've read the SK interview: it doesn't mention hands. Mr Wizard also said that he tested it with turbo. If so, it means that hands wouldn't have necessarily worked anyway. Listen, I'm not massively bothered either way, and I don't want to sound like a dick. In all likeliness it is gone.
 
 
But I'll still use him :)
