Seth: Just block this move
SF4 "Expert" doesn't block the move 6 or 7 times in a row.

Nice experts you got there Gamespot.

@2 In fairness, I think he just didn't realize it was an overhead.

why do they give the new chars millions of moves and options??
i mean hakan has throws like gief, command normals like dhalsim and a slide and coward crouch like blanka

look at this guy and the other new chars and than look at guile with TWO special moves and one or two command normals!

more moves dont mean better char, but a grappler with a huge damage output and fast ways to get in, who even can coward crouch under projectiles does look overpowered for me!!!

EX-Oil lets him pass through fireballs. Interesting.

Guile? It is a too embarassing question for him. Let's him talk about his f... grappler.

I want the Karate Clown for Super Street Fighter IV Turbo... make it happen!

Telvanni said on March 14, 2010 at 2:48 p.m.

@kanped

It was a sweep. ;)

And I think Seth meant that EX Oil let a fireball go through him while he's doing it. I first thought he meant once EX Oiled up he could go through fireballs period. 8)

@PhinnyCupcakes: Me too dude, me too...
Atleast we found out that that stuff on his head actaully IS his hair...=/

anyways, he still sounds rather OP, but, of course, it's pretty hard to tell atm. He does sound fun to play as though...

And I want a karate clown...

Because Seth is the Sh*t, that's why.

CharlieNash said on March 14, 2010 at 2:54 p.m.

About guile.. he doesn't really need more moves. He just needs his damage buffed and a way to juggle his ultra

#15
Khaos said on March 14, 2010 at 2:58 p.m.

Actually. Is. His. Hair... Okay Capcom.

I'm still leaving trust in you...

@6 stop complaining about Guile just like everyone else on this site crapcom has a conspiracy theory to make characters like guile vega and cammy suck.

It's not fair!

Kenshin said on March 14, 2010 at 3:20 p.m.

Lol @ my friends who thought Gief was better than Hakan.

KanyeWest said on March 14, 2010 at 3:31 p.m.

Karate Clown ftw

#22
Tango_Sucka said on March 14, 2010 at 3:42 p.m.

is seth playing cross handed for cool points or is that actually a good way to play for some people? I've never seen that way before

#23
irrenmann said on March 14, 2010 at 3:48 p.m.

^ Hakan's daughters are all nearly identical, and he is still married.

Seth plays cross-handed because he is a lefty and got used to it.

He was an important part of the process, even though much of that process involves Japanese employees.

And lastly, wasn't Clown the next-to-last boss in Fighter's History? :)

Zanchief said on March 14, 2010 at 3:52 p.m.

They just need to have a fan voting on new characters

#28
Blanks said on March 14, 2010 at 4:05 p.m.

I'm giving Hakan a shot as my new main too. He looks like so much fun to play as, especially the ground slide & defensive Ultra. SHAZZAM! I'm getting ready to oil up right now;)

#29
Ex_Ein said on March 14, 2010 at 4:06 p.m.

Seth should just turn the stick a full 180 and assign kicks to the top(now bottom buttons) and punches to the bottom(now top)

#30
MIRACLEfool said on March 14, 2010 at 4:07 p.m.

@SakuraFan
The normal looking daughter is Hakan's wife...

#31
Jarv said on March 14, 2010 at 4:07 p.m.

@#6 If you think Guile only has one or two command normals I think you need to spend more time with him.

#32
Creeper said on March 14, 2010 at 4:09 p.m.

Karate Clown? Fund it!

#33
FraggleRock said on March 14, 2010 at 4:14 p.m.

Does Seth play cross handed?? I only just noticed this for the first time now but man that is so difficult haha

#34
Ex_Ein said on March 14, 2010 at 4:20 p.m.

yes he's left handed, if it was me I would flip the stick 180, open up the box turn the joystick inside 180 and assign the buttons like normal just upside down

#35
Ex_Ein said on March 14, 2010 at 4:23 p.m.

@2 he's a gamespot employee

Dash said on March 14, 2010 at 4:32 p.m.

Capcom just needs to let the fans design characters from now on. We can come up with better ideas than this Hakan guy.(and you all know we can). I must admit, he is going to be a monster though. I still don't see him in tourneys just only for online play. You might get one guy who will use him in tourneys, other than that people will stick with their mains. It would be so beneficial if Capcom would have some type of suggestion box online for new ideas when they create SF and majority rules period. This includes new moves, ultras, new characters, costumes etc etc. The most important thing out of all this is game balance. All these updates would be a waste if the game ain't balance like they said. I don't know maybe its just me what do you all think. (keep it pro.) :D

#37
MIRACLEfool said on March 14, 2010 at 4:50 p.m.

@Dash
Actually I think that fan designed characters would be a pretty bad idea, as not everyone is a good artist and will probably create imbalanced ideas, probably fit in the street fighter universe in the worst possible way, and theres also, the possibility of having even more ridiculous costumes. and/or complicated costumes, that would make Hakan a more reasonable choice.
Plus, Hakan's design is awesome I see no problem with it

#38
Dash said on March 14, 2010 at 5:01 p.m.

@ #43 I see what your saying... Capcoms not that stupid though, the purpose is to get that one good idea that rocks! That one character design that's badass, the new ultra/super or move suggestion that is a cool design, or a new mechanic added to the game thats on point. Are you doubting your abilities to design? We all have said in our heads(or out loud when we get hammered on line) man if they did this or that, that would be cool. I'm just saying there so much talent out there in all these areas why not take advantage of it unless its a lawsuit waiting to happen. (nice post though)

#39
Rose said on March 14, 2010 at 5:17 p.m.

If fans could better professionals in character design, they'd likely BE professionals in character design...

Characteristically Yours,

Ex_Ein said on March 14, 2010 at 5:21 p.m.

Capcom just needs to make the character designs and let the fans vote

#41
Caramujov2 said on March 14, 2010 at 5:24 p.m.

In the right hands, I think Hakan will be very good.

#42
nododgy said on March 14, 2010 at 5:25 p.m.

@35 & 40

Didn't play much in arcades did you? He didn't exactly have the option of flipping anything while learning to play in arcades, and that's clearly what he's used to now. Flipping it around, or getting a left handed stick would probably be like you attempting to just now learn to play cross handed.

#43
Ex_Ein said on March 14, 2010 at 5:27 p.m.

but the games no longer in arcades and he has a personal stick

#44
Ex_Ein said on March 14, 2010 at 5:31 p.m.

most fighters always get a console port and he's on a development team for a game only coming to consoles(and the PC) and not the arcade, as far as we know.

I always felt the more agile characters should get air grabs.
Seeing this makes me feel sorry for Zangief... and I hate the guy lol

#47
Exturbination said on March 14, 2010 at 8:12 p.m.

If that dude is an expert why is he using a SE stick ???

#48
proof58 said on March 14, 2010 at 9:59 p.m.

idk but it looks like you can do that 360 move in the corner and have him land on the ultra but i don't think it will work

#49
SF2FOREVER said on March 14, 2010 at 10:07 p.m.

i feel sorry for ZANGIEF guys. This new ridiculous characters, also a wrestler, gets MORE grabs/holds that the all time fav mighty wrestler. Capcom should give Gief back his crouch Grabs in SSFIV!! he should have atleast 4 normal grabs.

#50
Telvanni said on March 15, 2010 at 4:14 a.m.

Gief doesn't need to oil up to get the maximum benefit of his moves.

#51
BlankaBeast said on March 15, 2010 at 9:11 a.m.

Ummm...I like Blanka and Zang, I AM GOING TO LOVE THIS GUY.

omegax9000 said on March 15, 2010 at 11:55 a.m.

hakan....who cares add dante or nero. Yeah I said it.

#53
sectionz said on March 15, 2010 at 6:07 p.m.

Im sorry even if Hakan is really good i still feel he is lame. He can still be a oil wrestler but the oiling up and those ultras are LAME and not funny to me. If he didnt do those things i would think he was ok.

#54
sectionz said on March 15, 2010 at 6:11 p.m.

And come on people NO CLOWNS IN SF EVER!

gamingslavej said on March 15, 2010 at 7:55 p.m.

All I have to say is people shouldn't knock him untill they try him he's likely to fit in perfectly with the rest of the characters. I really hate close minded people because being close minded not only causes you to miss out on great things, it also restrict you from actually enjoying something. If you tackle something with a negative attitude you more likely to hate him and he may be high tier. even after the game comes out and by chance he is used by many pros, those with closed minds still may hate him and say he's cheap or something rather than accepting that he is a contender.

on the side I hate tiers that's why I prefer 3D fighters because tiers are usually very insignificant in 3D fighters
