Yes, I have a Street Fighter boner. Wannafightaboutit?



Okay, so as many of you may know the new copy of Famitsu has been released and confirms the inclusion of the Third Strike characters Makoto, Dudley and Ibuki (they're awesomeness is in descending order).

So here are some pics I've been sitting on and slept too late to be able to get up before some of the others (I did promise).



So far so awesome, Dudders looks cool as all hell and Makoto (other than the weird shape on the red top) will no doubt become the bain of many of your existences when I pick her up as a secondary character.



Ibuki never ever appealed to me, but hopefully some of you can give her a go and thrash me with her until I respect her. Dudley clearly can't be searching for Gill to get his car back, so this time his story is that he is searching for a rose, which I think fits him perfectly and doesn't make the English look in any way fey.




Do any of you plan on picking up any of these new characters?

I'm a flowchart Gen 4 lyfe but will be dabbling with Makoto and Adon (take that you Fagat users). However, with Gen able to ultimate spider you until you die I'll play the others as request.

I also have something special to do with what will be the next announcement from Capcom that I promise will make it to you first. Finally here is a bonus boner for The Faux Bot

Shit. Makoto is such a little cutie! I'm still going for Cody. If Dudley had charge moves he'd make an awesome secondary Balrog for me. I'll still give him a go.

I'd like to go on record here and say, just incase I haven't before, that Street Fighter character design is the fucking tits.

HAGGAR!

still on the fence as to whether i'll get this, but i'm getting some money soon and thats a good sign. another good sign was that i enjoyed having my buttocks served to me with a michelin star by cront the other day. i think we played 30-35 rounds? i did get a few, and i NEARLY had his gen!! although i think he was being easy on me;)

whether i'll play as a new character i'm unsure. any chance we can organise some sort of gathering soon after its release? be good to get some talk about it while its being played?

I'd be in for a meet up. End of April means my undergrads aren't causing grief and I can take a few days.

@vworks, we had some fun matches, and if we do have this get-together you can play it with a few of us and then judge whether you'll get it. Mr TFB make it happen. Pretty pleeeeeease. Two xboxes and two tvs should provide enough play ;)

i was well gutted i didnt make it to the last games meeting... bastard snow!!!

tbh, if i do get the game for £25 it'll be hard not to purchase!

The problem with Street Fighter these days is that I'm so god damn awful at it, but I can't stop playing it.

I bought SFIV, tried to play it online and realized I sucked, and then traded it in for something retarded.

I know the same thing is going to happen this time around.

vandalworks said...

practice mr/miss caffeine! i just keep to the basics myself and hope to god my fingers do as i say. the amount of times i pull an ultra out when a fdragon punch was all i wanted is uncountable!learn the basics, and go from there. i'm pretty sure we're all accomodating, and if you really wanna win make me go dhalsim=|

The Faux Bot said...

Pro tip: pick a character that it's entertaining to lose as. I picked Balrog cos he wails 'my fight monaaay!' when he gets ko'd. I love it, win or lose now

Caffeine Powered said...

Yeah, I've taken to choosing characters like a meathead, which generally consists of whatever character I find cutest. Crimson Viper was my choice in SF4.

One of the problems I have is that there seems like so much involvement in a community to become excellent at it.

Things like balance and the such are so far over my head. I'm one of those kids who grew up throwing fireballs as Ryu, and now that everything has progressed past that, I'm just sort of lost.

The Faux Bot said...

Don't sweat all the technical stuff. Just enjoy the music, character design and the return of awesome car smashin' bonus rounds.

Shit. Capcom better start paying us for all this cheerleading.

@caffeine powered
maybe it was Viper that put you off, you picked one of the two single hardest characters to use successfully! I played her soooo much cos I like the character design that if you swap back out whatever retarded thing you got for it I can give you a few pointers.


@thefauxbot
I want the beach ball parry game from 3rd strike :( we could focus them or something, and you have to 'guess' right how long to charge etc. to get them all. Gen will suck for the barrels. Unless his EX WTF goes straight up lol.
I'm liking that the car stage makes you mix up the high and low attacks and overheads. I understand that Capcom will start paying us when I win those final 85 games I need to get my 100% on it.

vandalworks said...

ask those guys how i fight... i know no combos, apart from the high kick to high sweep. somehow i just win the odd game! how i won the tourney baffles me. oh yeah, cront wasnt playing and ben was still getting to grips with zangief. i still cant get over how epic that fight i had with bojack was... he made the best comeback in a round i've ever seen. its a tale for the ages!

Bojack85 said...

It was a highly entertaining and very tense round vworks.

cr0nt said...

vandalworks said...
