I really really really wish they would fix the lobby.

Nothing is more frustrating than losing a ranked match, and then sifting through 7 or 8 recycles before you can find a working opponent.

Just activate ranked challenges while playing the arcade mode. You'll have MUCH better luck that way.

Good tip!  Works great, thanks!

I'd be down for a tournament!

Question:  How do you handle Zangiefs &*@((@)#@ aggravating spin attack??  It goes off in an instant, and seems to have very few counters.  It's armor breaking and deadly when used in a corner.

I need a strategy to use against it.  I play as Sagat.
45  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Street Fighter IV Ranked Matches Question on: March 01, 2009, 01:35:38 AM
A far as the ranking system goes (which I have not tried yet), is it more advantageous to practice up and start playing ranked matches when you think you are at the top of your game? Or could someone get in from the get-go and eventually rise to the top even with a bunch of losses as they learned the ropes?

If you start fighting ranked matches as a n00b are your screwing yourself from ever climbing the charts?

I just don't want to be one of "those people" that play as Ken, Akuma or Ryu online... so I've been focusing my time on Balrog!  And I've won a handful of ranked and player online matchups!

As a "Ryu", I'm highly offended! Tongue

Videos don't really do this game justice - went over to depward's to play and it *feels* really, really solid.

I agree about the feel.  Every once in a while (once every other year or so), I play a game that feels complete.  This is the first one of those in a while for me.

Heads up for those of you who may be relying on the strategy guide for how to unlock all of the characters.  The guide is completely wrong about the last three:  Akuma, Gouken & Seth.

It was a bit tough to find out how to actually unlock these guys - but after some digging I found the following info.

Spoiler for Hiden:

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/showthread.php?p=1631928

After seeing post after post of the same question and same problem, I've decided to make a post as the title says. "The definitive way to unlock Akuma, Gouken & Seth."

First and foremost I recommend setting the difficulty to easiest, and setting the rounds to 1. As for the time setting, that is purely discretionary, however, I recommend setting it to 99, so as to have plenty of time to weaken your opponent but still be able to fill your ultra meter.

The next step, you must unlock 6 other hidden characters. In order to unlock these characters you must play through arcade mode using specific characters

The characters are as follows:

Ryu unlocks Sakura
M. Bison unlocks Rose
C. Viper unlocks Cammy
Chun Li unlocks Gen
Sakura unlocks Dan
Abel unlocks Fei Long

Still with me? I sure hope so. After you unlock those 6 hidden characters, the fun starts, so pay close attention.

Unlocking Akuma
During this playthrough of arcade mode you must select a character that you have already finished arcade mode with. I recommend Ryu, as he has a super easy ultra combo. During arcade mode, obtain 2 perfect victories, as well as 2 ultra combo finishes. Also, you must not lose a round! (VERY IMPORTANT!) Once you defeat Seth, A slash will appear through the screen, and you will be on your way to fighting Akuma. All you have to do now is defeat him and he is yours.

(update)TIP: Obtain 2 perfect victories during the first two battles of arcade mode, as they are the easiest.

Unlocking Gouken
Before you do this, you must complete arcade mode with Akuma. After completing arcade mode with Akuma, again, complete arcade mode with a character that you have already used. Again, I suggest Ryu (you should already know why.) In this playthrough you must obtain 2 perfect victories, as well as 3 ultra combo finishes. Much as the process for unlocking Akuma, you must not lose a round! (VERY IMPORTANT!) After defeating Seth, a slash will appear through the screen. You guessed it...here comes Gouken. Defeat him and he is yours.

(update)TIP: Obtain 2 perfect victories during the first two battles of arcade mode, as they are the easiest.

Unlocking Seth
Now comes the last character left to be unlocked. Quite possibly the biggest burden of the game...Seth. By now you should have completed arcade mode with a good chunk of the characters in the game. So, that being said, all you have to do is beat arcade mode with those whom you have not beat it with yet, and Seth is yours.

(update)NOTE: Finishing arcade mode with all 24 characters is required to unlock Seth.

So at 3am in the morning I had unlocked Akuma, and was ALMOST ready to unlock Gouken....when my *&#@*#@(@ stick broke.  The Mad Catz SE pos will no longer register down.

Then I began the 2 hour investigation & operation to try and fix the thing.  A faulty washer has been blamed for many problems with these sticks, and I removed mine, yet the problem remains.

Now, I'm faced with four crappy options:

1. Buy the tournament edition stick (retail $149.99) off of Ebay for $500.
2. Buy the Hori EX stick (retail $129.99) online for the nice new jacked up price of $199.99 + $25 shipping.
3. Buy Sanwa parts that can replace the faulty parts in the SE stick for $50 online, but wait for 2+ weeks of back-order hell
4. Play with the standard XBOX controller and basically give up hope of being a serious player online

I ordered the parts.

This sucks.
51  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Street Fighter IV Impressions on: February 22, 2009, 03:30:49 AM
I'm halfway through unlocking all of the characters and I've noticed that the game does seem to change difficulty on you in some cases.  For example, for each of these characters I played the Arcade Mode with 1 round on EASIEST.  For the final fight against Seth, this is how long it took me to win:

- With Ryu (my main who I am by far the best at) - An hour and a half! (50 fights?)
- With Chun Li - Two fights (3 minutes?)
- With Blanka - One fight
- With E-Honda - 5 fights (10 minutes?)
- With Dhalism - Almost two hours! (70 fights?)

Finally, picking up on this, I've started to give up and retry from scratch if I am unable to defeat Seth after the first few rounds.  Using Vega, I was on my 9th or so fight when I was obliterated.  I restarted an hour later from the beginning, and killed Seth after the 4th try.

Have it for the 360.  Absolutely love it.  This is an outstanding game, and you can tell that it is from the very first match.

Currently getting DESTROYED by Seth, even on Easiest mode.  Any tips?

I'm extremely excited for this.

One thing I noticed that is missing from your brain-dump above is information on the fight sticks.

I picked up the $69.99 360 stick after reading that the Tourney stick was "too big to sit on your lap".  Turns out that was false, and now I'm kicking myself a bit for not getting it (even though the one I have is bad ass, it's just less bad ass than the tourney stick).  Retail is $149 or so, they are sold out everywhere, and are going for $300 on ebay.  Argggh.

The wheel is actually what makes this game great for me.  It's funny to think that at first, the press was sort of poking fun at it - but now I bet the wheel will sell copies.

It's a ton of fun, easy for anyone to pick up and play, and so far online works great.  Thumbs up from me.

66  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / iTouch Questions on: February 25, 2008, 03:39:00 AM
I'm considering picking up an iTouch and wonder about the following:
  • It's obvious how to buy songs on iTunes and transfer them to the iTouch, but how do I grab songs from my current mp3 and CD collection and put them on it?
  • Is it possible to plug the iTouch into a different PC (than the one used to download songs) and play music off of it out of the PC speakers?
  • Does the iTouch have a built in camera like the iPhone does?

I grabbed it last night.  I loved PGR2/3 online w/ Lockdown and the gang!

So far so good - I like how you unlock packages for new cars/tracks/modes.  Careful though, I managed to unlock a pack of cars with the hopes that they would help me win a specific race, but those cars can't be used in this race (class issue?).
