Also has links to some new Youtube vids for the loke test at the bottom of the page.

I'm mildly interested in how this game will turn out, it seems like a throw back to old school SF2, which is what I played a lot as a kid. Hopefully the graphics won't ruin the experience for me.

Street Fighter 4 is pretty fun. I played it today for the first time. There was some good competition at the arcade and I mostly got beat a lot. It feels slower than 3rd Strike. As a lot of people have said its more like Super Turbo. One nutty guy on the SRK forum bought 2 of the arcade units for SF4 and hooked it up in his house...that's like $12,000. So crazy that Capcom forces you to get 2 Taito Type X2 units to play versus mode.

I'll wait for the console port.

Although I initially got caught up in the SF4 hype maching, I?m back to thinking it looks rather ugly.

I hope that it plays well, but those graphics are terrible imo. Hand drawn sprites is the future (and past :) )

Seeing it in action up close on an HD screen you notice just how much detail they put in the backgrounds and the character designs. Gameplay is a lot like old school SF2. Every move you do in the game also has a really cool feeling of solid impact. Its hard to describe...the overall design blends together very nicely.

Well it's good to hear that it plays well & that really is the main thing. I've watched some hd movies, but I'll try to reserve judgement till I actually get to play it
