I can't say I care much. I'm happy playing Street Fighter: Third Strike on my Dreamcast with TWO arcade sticks :D

What sticks do you use?
I'm after a couple of sticks for exactly this purpose (SFIII:TS on the Dreamcast)

I bagged two official Agetec arcade sticks at a flea market. They work wonders on Soul Calibur too.

I'm currently searching for some Twin Sticks to play Vo:OT on. You got some?

Unfortunately not! The only controllers I have for DC are 2 DC pads

Thanks for the link, its the same footage as in the 1UP show sans the pointless talking. The replays look ace (The shinku hadoken one any way)
Facial expressions look a little weird though, everyone looks so angry!

It does look promising, I'm itching to get my hands on the game so I can try it myself. I really want to see Dhalsim though, from the descriptions it sounds like they've heavily bulked him up.

I'm glad they went for a more comic/cell shading aspect of the graphics though, it suits it more than EX3.

Looks nice, but in all honesty, Street Fighter HD looks more impressive graphically.

Yes and no. The sprites certainly look lovely in the images, and certain effects (Ken's flaming Dragon Punch) do look really nice but the animation will be what lets it down, namely - its choppy since its based off a 15 year old game with only the sprites getting updated (KOF 94 rebout and Guilty Gear X did the same thing, high rez graphics with the choppy animation)
Other thing that bothers me about the looks of SFHD are some of the Backgrounds, Balrogs looks horrible beyond belief, thats not the case with all of them but I wish they redid the sprites and left the BG's alone. Just my opinion though.

More new news and screenshots at:
http://www.famitsu.com/game/news/1212893_1124.html

Judging from the screenshots, super cancelling maybe in. One set of screenshots looks to show Ryu cancelling out of his Hadoken and into his Shinku Hado Ken (The title did say Street Fighter 4 and not EX4 right :wink: )

At the bottom, a new character is shown called Crimson Viper. She is supposed to have a brand new (or different) fighting stlye (well at least she isn't a female ryu clone).

Still can't wait to play it, hopefully the new character will bring something new to the game.
