Thanks alot! I will get on it... Got all titles now too except merciless... 16 more chip wins to go and i'll hopefully have 100%.

Danielq94 said on July 14, 2010 at 6:47 p.m.

@ 105 your'e sad

ajuntalee said on July 15, 2010 at 5:16 a.m.

this is not really a helpfull chart, i reflects well, bison, vega or gief who dont "combo" that much, now take ryu or chun-li for exemple, their light punch doesn't cause 30 damage, it opens the way for an ultra, now replace the moves damage with the guaranteed damage it opens the way for and you'll have a much more intresting chart where ryu is not abysmal but holds a place closer to his own.

even then it would not reflect how godlike it is to have your opponent having to guess whether you laucnh a meaty lariat, or a meaty undodgable command SPD, that is just an example among a lot of others. this game is deeper thean just comparing strengh of a few moves.

Danielq94 said on July 15, 2010 at 1:20 p.m.

lol i did spell you're wrong oh well you're still sad i was drunk what's your excuse?

mjcd said on July 16, 2010 at 7:18 p.m.

I would love if you could pick both ultras in this game it would make it better FOR ME....
Ultra 1 + Ultra 2 in 1 fight = more fun!

I hope CAPCOM thinks about it

Nelaelu said on July 25, 2010 at 9:13 p.m.

mjcd #127

NO!! Some characters have ultras that would be too all-embracing if they were put together!

True, it would be cool to have both ultras at the same time - you could sometimes see moves like Ryu's ultra2 that nobody uses in a competitive play - but the game would have to be designed for that from the beginning.

Nelaelu said on July 25, 2010 at 9:38 p.m.


I recently bought Madcatz TE stick for $90 and I love it! (I broke couple of fightpads earlier and got pretty pissed off). The TE (Tournament Edition) uses original sanwa parts (that are used in SF arcade cabinets), so it should be very durable. You gotta wait for a deal though... cause normally TE costs around $140!

There are cheaper sticks too. There is a MadcatzSE edition and Haori - they shouldn't cost more than $50-70. I also heard of Peawang Evolution that supposedly works on PS3/XBOX360 and PC and costs about the same. I don't know how good they are though...

Did you check the section on sticks here at eventhubs? You should find good info there! Cheers!!

JungleMan said on July 28, 2010 at 4:34 a.m.

has anybody noticed that nobody uses Gouken anymore. I don't think i've played a single gouken since Super came out.

SamJay123 said on July 28, 2010 at 9:45 a.m.

Should i buy this game to prepare for Marvel vs Capcom 3?

realgameplay said on August 1, 2010 at 11:46 p.m.

the gameplay on this is so crap it unexplainable
the gameplay too fast
the movement all wrong
the facial expressions are wrong
on all streetfighters sagat has taken his opponents of the camera when giving them a tiger uppercut
BISON!! is a let down why is he so easy to defeat on super nitendo when you gave him a dragon punch he would still be standing...

@131 I do... I use him the most & I've run into some others.

MB56 said on August 9, 2010 at 12:23 a.m.

ssf4 is a great game. It has the good stuff from sf4 + improvements. The only thing i think is wrong with ssf4 is that you cant hit them after KO, lol. it was fun pounding some opponents after KO..

Also, is there an option to put on handicap settings in endless? it seems like you cant...

chickenwings said on August 14, 2010 at 6:06 p.m.


canabalistic999 said on August 15, 2010 at 9:50 p.m.

@ chickenwings u are a smart man... that would make this game so much better in many ways as long as they varied the amount of guard meter the characters had, kinda like stamina variations. I cant believe i havent heard someone say that yet. Regardless this game is still amazing just a guard meter would do wonders for this game.

SF4junkie said on August 17, 2010 at 3:03 a.m.

Anyone feel like playing random vs random?

Hadododouken said on August 18, 2010 at 2:39 p.m.

OdinReborn, I appreciate the effort and time you put into that. Even though I don't play Sagat much, the information is always helpful. :]

lynx_ID said on August 18, 2010 at 7:06 p.m.

mmm maybe not a great idea a guard meter, can you imagine rufus and hes dive kick?? or cammy??, maybe guard meter but this game seriously need to dont have those safe moves like

Hadododouken said on August 20, 2010 at 8:59 a.m.

I'd be happy to play against you, but I'm on XBL. :[ Oh, and I started maining Sagat. Go figure. And yeah, I hear Gouken's a pain.

Hadododouken said on August 21, 2010 at 7:48 a.m.

I use a stick, personally. I got one recently and have grown so used to it that it feels weird to play any game moving around with the 360 controller's joystick. And well, the 360 controller has a garbage d-pad. I feel quite comfortable using the PS2/3 d-pad for Soul Calibur and the like.

Incidentally, I love Galaga. Wahahahaha.

Arteris1 said on August 22, 2010 at 1:52 a.m.

Anyone wanna play me in super street fighter 4?

Meety said on September 3, 2010 at 10:30 p.m.

my psn is demetribaccus i use goofy characters which are rufus dan and hakan so im looking for challenging players no spammers

Existent said on September 6, 2010 at 5:09 p.m.

@Meety If you're at the stage where you honestly believe in what you call "spamming" then you need to learn how projectiles operate in the game. A challenging player will use whatever works, if you can't get around fireballs they won't handicap themselves for you.

Finally got the C 2 shining C trophy today So happy I can go back to playing characters I enjoy online and I'll never have to play a shoto again.

cuttyb1987 said on September 15, 2010 at 9:02 p.m.

@ Odin grabs are set up by being close actually. Take Abel for example his rolls may not cross up but it does confuses to place him right in your face at all times for a grab. Zangief cross up command grab is only for mix ups similiar to Able u can walk up and do 360's with him for a grab. To set it up is to hide it anyway you can by dashing in empty jumps and so on it all on your for every character...even tick throws i.e cr.lp into normal grab can be switched with cr.lp into Able TT ya get it?

omegax9000 said on September 18, 2010 at 4:46 p.m.

ive been playing rose for a few days and i know this is from pros but rose is higher.

shadow050 said on September 20, 2010 at 6:05 p.m.

hey... when can we expect anymore overhauled character pages (like adon's was)?

ibLeo said on September 21, 2010 at 4:52 p.m.

@165: doesn't look it'll be anytime soon. Most of the newcomers in SSF4 have absolutely no info on their pages aside from the bare minimum.
And lord only knows when Yun and Yang will get pages.

GUNNAH_MAN said on September 22, 2010 at 9:38 a.m.

I hope Alex gets in this game, just think of the the mix up pontential, it would be similar to abels, although i don't main abel i like his stratergies, it was his look and personality that put me off so i didnt really use him much. I'd imagine Alex would have to lose atleast 1 special move like spiral d.d.t because that was barely useful and he'd have to move a little like abel (movement speed) and have good pokes, I don't really mind if he doesn't have much combos as he's most likey going to do a good amount of damage just from his specials and normals ..... anywho this is just what i hope from Alex if he is put in the ssf4 cast

Hadododouken said on September 22, 2010 at 4:28 p.m.

Odin, you should just do an all-out Sagat guide, super in-depth. Nyeheheheh

shadow050 said on September 23, 2010 at 11:52 a.m.

Yun and Yang lacking pages makes SOME sense for now, since they're not available anywhere besides testing areas (or so it seems)

but i want that re-vamped page for the other characters that have been around for a while. idk why they even started with Adon, nothing against him, i like him and use him as an alternate to my main... but it would be nice to see that re-vamped Vega (my main) page lol. of course certain characters should have had them too (although idk if they actually do have it yet), like ryu, ken, chun li, etc.

but to be honest, the entire sf4 could and should be redone for ssf4, in that "re-vamped" way, IMO.

shadow050 said on September 23, 2010 at 11:56 a.m.

odin... after reading some of your sagat guide, i'd love to play you. you can find me on PSN under the same username.

Hadododouken said on September 24, 2010 at 7:46 a.m.

Keep it up, pal.

I assume that they did Adon first because... Either the writer mains Adon, or the previous page on Adon was terrible. Wouldn't know.

Hadododouken said on September 24, 2010 at 4:05 p.m.

I think jf.MP should be on the list of normals. :D

the_frog_splash_lives said on September 30, 2010 at 2:09 p.m.

@ 177

If you really want updated guides, go here.

Ghost83 said on November 4, 2010 at 7:20 p.m.

Existent is right #154, using the term spam as an excuse for your inability to deal with a players repeat usage of a particular move or technique clearly means that you lack/undestand key elements of the game.

Each character has strengths, these stregths must be used so you can attain victory, Sagat wasn't given a fireball so you can stand there and Jab on the spot all day. He has the fastest fireball in the game, its supposed to be used to overwhelm your opponent, to trap them in the position you want, whilst his fireball is faster than others, his weakness lies in the fact that he is quite a large character and when performing a fireball a large portion of his body (his arms) are exposed, making it easy to hit him from a distance if you successfully jump the fireball.

If you lose to the repeat use of a move or technique, study it's properties, understand its priorities and then find moves with your character that can be used to counter/defeat your opponents moves, this is a fundamental of any good fighting game.

If you're playing a shooter and you repeatedly get shot in the head and killed, you don't say " he's spamming me with head shots" because your opponent is doing what is required (and expected) to defeat you and is doing it in an effective and efficient way that requires skill, the same rule applies in a fighting game.

You may argue that performing a fireball does not require much skill, and this would be correct, knowing when to alternate the speed of the fireball, judging the perfect range at which you should be when throwing the fireball and simply knowing when NOT to use a fireball does however require skill and knowledge. So chances are if you are defeated by someone "spamming" fireballs they are doing all of the above to keep you at bay.......or it simply could be that you are crap

Alreadyowned said on November 6, 2010 at 7:29 p.m.

Question? Does anyone know about information for super street fighter 4 online tournaments?

ayo33 said on November 18, 2010 at 4:30 p.m.

are yall going to put up a guide for yun and yang?

DickieGaloot said on November 19, 2010 at 2:10 p.m.

I love how people underestimate Zangief's and yet do not have the slightest clue how to use him to his highest potential.

Reyapollo said on November 19, 2010 at 5:57 p.m.

Good lord this game is difficult. It seems like people do this for a living because I keep getting my ass handed to me. I simply don't understand how to do stuff like cancelling, or how to use the dash or focus attack. Is there a SSF4 for retards somewhere where I can try to get some of this stuff?

Drippy_Nozzle said on November 20, 2010 at 2:01 a.m.


Try doing the challenge trials with all the characters to help you with learning the moves, and train yourself not to mash. Also watch the streetfighter tutorial on vesperarcade's youtube channel- it explains how to use complicated features in the game such as focus attacks, dashing and cancelling.

Shareware said on November 29, 2010 at 1:34 p.m.

Fireballs should be useless just like in the perfect game that is SF3. Don't dare speak against SF3 because it's better in every way than every game because it's so 1337. SF4 is mainstream corporate garbage that everyone likes so I automatically hate it. Capcom used to be cool and only make 2D (i.e. SUPERIOR) games just like SF3 when they were just a small company of 5 people.

What? Capcom was a large company when SF3 was released? I didn't hear that and you can't make me. Everything was better before now and nothing will ever change the fact that video games are abominations now and everybody thinks so. What? HOW many people bought Street Fighter 4? They don't count.

ANYWAY as I was saying, everybody obviously agrees with me (not that I can find any examples right now), so stop being horrible Capcom and put a REAL fan in charge as CEO. I know exactly what to do: Re-release SF3. What? They're already doing that? HOW DARE THEY RUIN THAT GAME WITH THEIR FILTHY--

Ghost83 said on November 30, 2010 at 4:03 p.m.

???? @ Shareware

Why would you want fireballs to be useless, this isn't Tekken or Soul Calibur, or Dead or Alive, since the dawn of Streetfighter fireballs have been a primary part of the games mechanics and players tactics, if you want to profess that you think Capcom was 'cool' when they only made 2d games why don't you refer to the original games that started it SF 2 World Warrior and Turbo and Super and Super Turbo, these were the classics, these were the games that started a generation of fighters.

So if you want to get real technical, SF 4 and SSF 4 are the closest the game has been to its original roots in a long time, i'm not knocking SF 3, but it was a different game, it played much differently.

Certainly there are people who jump on the band wagon and 'like' SF 4 just because everyone else does, which is crap, but as someone who has played the series since World Warrior,(which i suspect you never have)i am of the opinion that SF 4 has been Capcoms best release since Turbo(highly regarded as the best fighting game of the period and one of the best fighting games of all time.

So i'm pretty sure any other player out there who has played the series from its dawn would agree with me.

I've followed the series through all its changes from Alpha to EX (the rather crappy 3d version)to 3rd strike and enjoyed all of the games, but somewhere along that journey Capcom lost sight of the ball and streetfighter lost its essence, but it has been re-born and brought back with it that 'classic' feel and a dash of new age completing the package.

So before you disregard a fundamental feature of the game that has played a major role since its creation i recommend you consider how you view the game, because clearly you don't seem to have an understanding of what made the game what it is today......... but i'm just old school so don't take offence to this.

the_frog_splash_lives said on December 1, 2010 at 5:48 a.m.

any advice for elf ? tried the character boards but can't post for some reason . am b ranked but have hit a plateau so am looking for any advice / mentoring. much appreciated if any of you guys can help.

Shareware said on December 2, 2010 at 2:35 a.m.


Yes. OH so hard.


I'll let you in on this one:

My entire post was sarcastic. I was poking fun at 3rd Strike elitists with a rather LARGE dose of cheekiness. Don't worry, I'm not insane. In fact, I think a lot like you do, and have been playing just as long. Hell, call me crazy, but I even found the EX series somewhat TOLERABLE.

Ghost83 said on December 6, 2010 at 6:47 p.m.

ahhh i do apologise, it can be somewhat hard to spot sarcasm in text form.

I get quite wroked up over the whole fireball thing! ever since Alpha i was mortified at how useless fireballs became, being hit by a fireball had the same value as blocking one in the past games, coupled with the fact that you could air block them aswell it made fireballs nothing more than a defensive keep away tool, to me it changed the game too much, people could jump around like monkeys without a worry in the world and if heaven forbid they landed on a fireball and didn't happen to air block, the damage was so ridiculously minimal they didn't care.
There was a very satisfying factor to tricking your opponent into landing on a fireball through varying speeds and what not, for a long time it has been absent from the series, so i'm happy fireballs have atleast regained some of there usefullness again.
i again apologise for mistaking you for an emo deusch bag with no understanding of the game hahahah

does anyone know when this is supposed to actually come out for home consoles?

DaMastaaa said on February 6, 2011 at 9:26 a.m.

Here's an idea for DLC to SSFIV:

Each console stores the number times you've played against an online opponent. Then, on the screen that says, "Which of these two will walk away a champion," it could display how many times you've defeated and lost to the online opponent. Good idea?

genesiskhan said on February 9, 2011 at 12:29 p.m.

best and insightful website ill ever goto great info and most of its not from someone just playing for a little bit and then righting a strategy guide theres actuall player tips here so keep it going and looking foward to ae and mvc3 stuff

xAwperatorx said on February 11, 2011 at 9:54 a.m.

That is a pretty cool idea. Set up mind games before the match even begins. "He beat me 7 times? I'M A WORTHLESS PIECE OF **** AND NO ONE LIKES ME!!!!" then BAM... cancer.

Dark_Fantom said on June 30, 2011 at 12:33 p.m.

Got AE yesterday, gotta say I'm pretty disappointed. Basically in online you end up playing only Yun and Fei players, who I can now officially say are OP. The lower tiered characters I play with (Vega and Juri) didn't really get much out of the balancing and Surprise surprise, get rammed pretty by the S tier guys. Vanilla was great, Super was ok, AE is not so good.

ya3goub said on July 12, 2011 at 4:59 a.m.

OK one thing is driving me crazy, how come I always kick CPU Cammy's ass on XBOX on Hardest, and I usually win Human Cammy players, but I she always wipes the floor dust with on in SFIV on iPhone? What is wrong?!!! I sometimes keep losing for a week (rage-quitting then continuing later) before I can defeat her!

ya3goub said on July 12, 2011 at 5:04 a.m.

@Dark_Fantom #214, dude what are you talking about? I get rammed by a lot of other characters! :) no seriously, characters of all kinds are all over the place, AE is wonderful. You should go to challenge mode and execute all the combos from there, you should get better after finishing those.

Ryu_Apprentice said on July 13, 2011 at 2:18 a.m.

Why do we want easy fights? if yun is OP then find ways around it. I fought some good yuns in my local community with my Fei and did quite well.

@ yun1989 #187
Do they really need to release AE on the 3DS? There's always Super Street Fighters IV. Infact,if AE was coming up,they might as well release that one INSTEAD of Super Street Fighter IV. That and personally. That game make Charge characters cheap. All I see is Guiles,Blankas,And E-Hondas.

Yeah so I do the correct moves on the joy stick and or the joypad in the challenge mode and the most I can reach is 6. The game doesn't seem to be accepting my moves, any reason?
