The following video probably won't interest people who aren't into Street Fighter IV, but I've been trying to find youtubes of all the best players for each character with the big Evo Tournament approaching, & this "EvilDrakeFang" guy wins hands down as the best Cammy Player I've seen, the last move he does in pretty crazy:

I've played with Cammy a bit and she is indeed a great fighter. My 2nd favorite female fighter behind C.Viper. IMO shes more suited to a defense style player though but that certainly doesn't count her out as an offensive character.

Nice vid Guvna. That Cammy is off the hook. Keep the SF4 vids comin. Perhaps we should create a dedicated thread for it?

Coincidentally, I just finished watching a "youtube SF4 challenge" between 2 decent players (in the US) that have been wanting to verse each other for a while and they only finished playing each other earlier today: Free1up vs DSP. First to 10 wins. Bascially free1up mains bison and seconds Ken and he isn't bad by any means but this DSP dude beat him 10 - 4 using a variety of characters, Gief, Rog, Honda you name it, but what particularly impressed me was his combos with Akuma:



I'm sure there are better Akumas out there but if you watch his other matches he's damn awesome with just about anyone. Also what's interesting is the fact that they've both recorded their challenges against each other on youtube so it was interesting listening to the different players' reactions to wins/losses. In saying that, DSP is a b**** but he's damn good.


p.s. Guess what Guvna?!?! I finally got my hands on one of these bad boys (picking it up this saturday)

http://ohflux.files.wordpress.com/2009/03/0001.jpg

It's like i'll be playing the game for the 1st time again..

I.. CAN'T.. WAIT. HIT ME, ARGHH, HIT ME!!!

two fity sealed in box with 12 months warranty, ebay, pickup from brisbane. Got lucky.

I think i'm still on G3A but i haven't been playing much lately. Waiting for this uni semester to finish then i'll get back into it.

ive pretty much resigned myself to the fact that im never gonna get anywhere in this game until i have either a joystick or a keyboard

Keyboard? c'mon the 360 controller aint that bad, surely. It's definitely worth upgrading to a stick though

You don't have to buy cammy. Relento ain't gonna be in it. Apparently T.Hawk and Deejay are but i don't really care much for them.

They should go for something crazy like Garuda, he cut sik.

No you just finish the game with a certain character (forget which) and she unlocks although for that outfit in the video you gotta pay for it as DLC.

For some great SF4 videos you should do a youtube search for Arcade Infinity. It's an arcade in cali that records their fights and uploads a fair few of them. Most of the are tourney videos from events (a lot have commentary too which is pretty funny to listen to) they hold/have held so there are rather awesome fighters in there. I'd link it but my browser crashes when I try to use the URL insert thingy.

I was going to buy a stick but by the time I got payed they had sold out of the Hori RAP3 white sticks. Bugger. I'm getting the game Blazbue when it comes out (made by guilty gear people, videos of it on arcade infinity's youtube page) and they are bringing out what seems to be a basic Hori stick but in a blue colour scheme and pics of those fighters over it so i'll get that unless another batch of RAP3s come in. Also can't wait for the new KoF game to come out in june or whenever it is

Also GuV that stick should be around $200 give or take. Depends how much the markup is on it.
Yeah that's what they should be at (150USD) but you'll be hard pressed to find them anywhere (in oz anyway) let alone get them for that price. Shipping will cost way to much to get them from overseas. Some places won't even bother shipping them internationally because of the high postage costs.

Though play-asia announced that they'll receive a shipment sometime during May (no idea how much they're going for), but apparently there's a big back order on them so a lot of stock will be pre-allocated. It's spastic how much they're in demand, hence the equally spastic markup in price by people all over ebay.

Having said that, for anyone that doesn't mind paying exta there's a dude on ebay (who lives in bris - morning side) selling a sealed TE arcade stick with warranty for the xbox360:

http://cgi.ebay.com.au/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&item=120425596416

Buy now or make an offer: $345 with pickup, $35 postage, and he's actually willing to accept offers, so you never know (he refused my offer of 250 so don't waste your time with anything lower).

Maxe, beware of knock offs from honkers. That s*** caught my eye at first but if you think about you're paying $170 with shipping for a product that you have no idea about. It could pay off, but i personally doubt it. Another $100 on top and with a bit of luck you could end up with the ducks nuts, the beez kneez, Sanwa parts and all.

btw the rufus player in the op is f*****g s***, just like I am at sfiv.. would be nice to see the same cammy vs someone that poses a challenge

JB Hi-fi had another big shipment of the sticks come in, I had one pre-ordered and it came through about a month ago, but I was moving house at the time and didn't really have $240 to blow on such a decadent luxury item :( Especially since I don't really play SFIV online or in tournaments or anything anyway, just mainly play it when friends come over.

Uuurrrgh, I've never heard this game with English voice-overs. They sound pretty s***.

But yeah, I really like Cammy too. I'm not that great with her, but then again, most of the people I get to play against (which isn't very many) are crap anyway, so it generally doesn't really matter what character I use.

I still haven't really found the need for an arcade stick. I use the analogue stick (PS3 though, not 360, don't know if that makes a difference), and I have very little issues at all. Are all of you guys with sticks people who got used to playing fighting games at the arcades? Because I never played fighting games at arcades, so it's not something that comes more naturally to me. Would I still benefit a significant amount from getting one? Though I still don't think I'd get one anyway, because I'd find it difficult to justify $100 on a controller, let alone $200+.

the stick isnt the main problem, i just need more buttons

at the moment ive got the 2 lights and 2 heavys assigned to the main buttons on the xbox controller, and the medimums assigned to the right shoulder/trigger

works ok cos light and heavy is what i use the most, but the big combos and focus attacks need medium and i can never get to them :\

Yeah the Standard Edition is the one with all the problems, TE one has very minimal issues, but that's what warranty is for.

JB Hi-fi had another big shipment of the sticks come in,
Shipment of the SE or the TE arcade sticks? i'd imagine it's the former? If that's true then i'd rather buy it through them and save $10 then off ebay.

Uuurrrgh, I've never heard this game with English voice-overs. They sound pretty s***.
Yeah can't stand the English voices, especially Ken & Rye, they sound like they're suffering from sever constipation. Though i have Balrog, Cammy, Zangief and Viper on English though, they don't sound too bad.


at the moment ive got the 2 lights and 2 heavys assigned to the main buttons on the xbox controller, and the medimums assigned to the right shoulder/trigger
Mediums attacks as triggers/buttons don't work well for me at all because i use the focus attack enough to keep them on the face of the controller. Medium attacks are also useful in connecting to special moves. I have my strong attacks as my triggers and 3P + 3K as my buttons. Because triggers are so s***, If i wanna use a strong attack i just either 3P or 3K at the expense of an EX bar. It's s*** but that's part of the reason why i'm buying a stick.

Wow, that looks like a piece of crap
That's the same knock off from honkers that Maxe posted earlier. Looks Nasty.

This is what i'll be getting stick wise. Seems pretty much the same as the RAP3 but with different colour scheme. Either way it's by hori so it's gotta be good.

As for the SF4 voices yeah most of them are kinda bad so I keep nearly everyone as the original japanese voices except for a few such as Rufus, Ken and some others that I don't mind.

How much will that cost DM?

As far as i know, the RAP3 has the Sanwa Stick but come with hori buttons, still a very decent stick from what i've read, and at a much affordable price than the Madcatz TE one.

I have no clue, but i'm guessing around... $130 - $160. On top of the $100 for the special edition of the game it'll be an expensive week heh.

Oh and a side note I found interesting, the special edition of Blazblue is the same price as the normal one. Strange that. usually they charge $20 - $30 more for what could generiously be called "special".

Nah, it was the TE, but it was only through the website, I don't think the actual stores stock them. Can't find it on their website anymore, so I guess they're not getting any more.

Ok i found a retail store called
gamesmen (in NSW) that have the SF4 Madcatz TE sticks going for $299 plus postage.

According to the site they'll be shipping them out in August 09 but at least it looks like you could place your preorders now.

So for those that don't mind waiting for the shipment, that might be the way to go, though i'd say they'll be selling out fast despite its somewhat exy price tag.

I also found a link to Jbhifi online store but it says both of their shipments of the TE stick that are due for June have sold out for $250 a pop, which is a shame really, because that's a decent price. Guess the price i'm getting mine for is pretty good given demand and shipping costs.

Bring on Tekken 6 already yea!

Saw this after browsing the Arcade Infinity youtube page and thought some here would enjoy it. It's a 10 1/2 min video of a 3 vs 3 team battle they were having there in their tourney. This shows off a pretty f*****g amazing guile OCVing an entire team (One Character Victory). Even besting El Fuerte, that spastic f***, in a rather close call but huge come back.

Does the gameplay seem a lil quicker than usual? or is that because arcade gameplay is quicker than consoles..

Another vid from AI's page. This one has Sagat (despite this video Ironfist is a brutal sagat player) in the losers brackets of the tourney f*****g around to some great comedic effect. I loled. It's like something not even a noob would do and yet it works for so long.

This one comes with commentary and a Tiger Uppercut counter on the screen too which makes it even funnier

For those who don't know, if you have installed the game and patched it (going online which I bet nearly all of you have) then seth bugs and acts as if he is on the hardest difficulty setting regardless of what you picked. Either delete your installation (not your saved games) or set the game to only 1 round for a win to help you beat him.

Anyone managed to unlock Akuma yet?

I've got everyone unlocked except for seth but just can't be buggered finishing the game with the characters I don't like

Wow, what a lame attempt a baiting. Actually tonight is the first time I've played Viper, rarely get a chance to play the game much these days. Never played online, it's more about having some extra characters available when friends are around.

I said it before in other SF4 thread, but why the hell do all these so called pros (in the vids) keep screwing up doing the basic moves? For instance, in the 3rd video, guile jumps in the air and Ryu just blocks instead of dragon punching. Is it the D-pad? Or some kind of faint tactic?

It's pretty easy to chip away and unlock seth, and the easiest way is just set it to the easiest setting, one round wins and just keep heavy kicking the s*** out of AI since heavy kick seems to bug them.

I bought a hori fighting stick 3 and its pretty s***, the buttons seem ok but the stick itself just feels s***.

they're probably using arcade sticks.. I keep f*****g up my moves on my arcade stick but I get most of them and am getting better, just takes a while getting used to as I've never played any fighting game using an arcade stick, always controllers.. but I feel that the control pad is too restrictive for sfiv and using an arcde stick is far superior when mastered... it's awesome bashing away at the stick and buttons too, none of this pussy pushing buttons on control pads...

spoon, you're comparing the stick to what?? the stick is a genuine sanwa arcade part, it can't feel s***!! maybe you're not used to the square gate??? try an octo gate..
