worst new character confirmed

I love it...that is some really weird and sick shit but hilarious. Losing to this guy is automatically way more humiliating than usual, like getting violated somehow in the process...

What's almost as funny is how seriously some people want to take a cartoony videogame, which has always had a flair for the bizarre (Blanka? Dhalsim?) This new character is completely in the same spirit that brought us the weirdos of the older games.

Just so it clear, I'm not disliking Hakan as a character his concept is great, it's the ultras that are so stupid and the borrowed moves from other characters which make him uncreative

call me crazy but I totally love this character! :D Weird I know but I do
Commented on 2010-03-10 23:29:12
One of the more inspired SFIV characters if you ask me. Silly? yes, but at least it's not another goddamn shoto guy :P

What role does Dan serve anymore now? This is the ultimate shame to lose to

Too random for me.

Ridiculous.
Commented on 2010-03-11 04:58:34
Haha, Awesome! people need to lighten up, it's not like the game was serious in the first place...besides, he seems alot better than that lame seth character.

So another character just as ridiculous is gonna help?

When a character looks stupid next to green beastmen and such, that's saying something. XD

I maintain that SF has always had shitty characters, either they are retarded or musclemen in karate gis with torn sleeves, with SF3 being the most diverse and interesting cast.

Which is why this character pisses me off, SF3 had a great cast and then SF4 has guys like El Fuerte and Rufus? Come on...

Forget the whole oil thing, WTF is up with his hair?? Or is that some kind of helmet?
Commented on 2010-03-12 02:16:24
Aside from this new wacky character this game looks amazing, that has to be on a pc which I know what I am buying it for now.

Damn straight, I would have picked Alex over Hakan any day!

Ok, so I get that he's an oil wrestler, and they've exploited that to make for a weird fighting style and comical supers and ultras (which I'm not sure I like or not) but what the hell is with the red skin and blue hair? Blanka is a jungle freak: therefore green, dhalsim comes from India therefore brown, Seth bio-engineered: purpley-blue (I'm guessing for a kind of armour plated look perhaps?) but this guy... He's got bad sun burn and his hair was bitten by a snake.

This isn't really a big deal but the street fighter IV logo is awesome, really well done. But the giant super sign, urgh... Looks like word art.

OK so not the perfect rendition but you can see where I'm coming from on this one: http://www.flickr.com/photos/48110475@N06/44275492...

people complained about the "Super" logo when it became apparent it was official when the box art was released. If you haven't seen the box art I apologise now.

About the game


What's up?
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker quests, which is a goddamn shame, a goddamn shame. For sure they could have come up with some meaningful side quests with at least a story. (46 minutes ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker Definitely enjoying FFXV more but I am solely talking about the story missions, some good diversity there. I also really like the Chocobos. Just such a shame that the side quests truly are all fetch (46 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I just think it's a pretty bad sign if a new game can't generate interest on a free weekend. The fact that there are other new games is not a very compelling excuse imo. (2 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Black Ops is also the most popular Call of Duty sub-brand now. (2 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts Also, even WD2 and Dishonered 2 sold much less than the previous games in their series. Same for CoD:IW, very few games that got released this Holiday season sold more than their predecessors. (2 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts electric devices, entertainment devices, etc. So who has that much money left that isn't reserved for Christmas perparation and gifts?! All around bad timing, hence why I believe Spring would be right (2 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts Then you have the fact that by now people's wallets are hurting. And many people buyed new consoles, PS4 Base or Pro, and XB1 S. Plus Holiday season sells a lot of other things like clothes, PC parts, (2 Hours ago)
