What an imagination you there darko.

@97 That makes a ton of sense but I hope you're wrong only because he is my main and I would love for him to be in this game.

darko_p86 said on February 8, 2012 at 6:58 p.m.

even tho i wasn't much of a Gouken player, id rather have him in sfxt than some of the characters that made it in, like Poison, Rufus, or Jury. sorry nothing personal guys, just not a fan of these and i LOVED playing against Goukens. maybe there's hope as DLC.

good DLC chance:

@darko 96

Um... lol Thats alot just for a super. Idt They would give Akuma such a move mainly b/c all his moves are just huge bursts of energy not combos lol. The rain of fire balls is kinda cheap for a game that isnt MVC b/c no1 will have a super to match it, thats prob why they only kept that move for MVC and CVS games.

They gave Oni his Messatsu Hadoken... I got really mad when i saw that he had that move and Akuma still had Wrath of Raging Demon and Demon Armageddon ( DA is lame... so lame) I just want his Messatsu Hadoken back b/c that move rapes. Ryu and Sagat only do 5 hits on their super fireballs. Akuma's does 8 hits. Ill be happy if they gave him that move back, esp since they gave him Misogi back.

Also, if they gave him Kongou Kokuretsu Zan (the move where he stands still and punches the ground and makes a eruption of energy come out the ground) too. Id be a happy camper, literally. Once Akuma gets full bars, and opponent has half or low health, both Kongou Kokuretsu Zan and Misogi is enough to take them out or to 1 hit left.

He better have his Shakunetsu Hadoken and Zanku Hadoken (Red Hadoken 1-3 hits and air hadoken) i use those more than a regular Hadoken.

+1 Nerdismology

darko_p86 said on February 9, 2012 at 7:27 p.m.

but ALL of what i described would be an off-screen animation just as the akumacopter is. it could work EXACTLY the same way as the akumacopter, only instead were getting a better show. if the launch hit doesn't connect, oh well... it would be the SAME result as wiffin the akumacopter. and ALL of what i described would take the same, if not shorter time than the akumacopter. all im sying is instead of the actual animation of the akumacopter, we get that one. heck, you can scrap the mid-air activation. what i was talking about is just a different animation. same start-up as the s!tty akumacopter.

darko_p86 said on February 9, 2012 at 7:41 p.m.

oh btw, thanks for making me 10 years younger.

XxRagingxDemonxX said on February 9, 2012 at 8:19 p.m.

lol i didnt do nuffin. Well, whenever Capcom is making special Fan edition moves, show them that so they can make it.

I dnt care for his Messatsu Gou Rasen (Hurricane kick the goes straight up. thats what ur referring to as Akumacopter right??) I only use it in CVS2 when i had full bars and i wanted to do a long drawn out Hyper combo that linked into his other moves. and to make a combo have higher hit number. It was pretty weak and to catch someone was impossible since barely anyone jumps b/c of all the nerds doing (wavedashes) But all that animation, for a move that i dont even like. lol thats not all that fun when playing as someone like Akuma. That is like Giving Akuma Ibuki's 2nd ultra, all that for a kinda weak move edp if the animation launcher misses.

XxRagingxDemonxX said on February 9, 2012 at 9:32 p.m.

When they posted the move lists like for an Arcade box pics with chars moves on it. Is that all their moves?? B/c people lika Akuma and Ibuki and Chun-li dont have all their moves listed (i think...Hopefully) Ik ive deen all of Ibuki's moves from SSFIV and Chun-li's Spinning up kicks (Tenshokyaku) I was hoping they didn't take their moves away or something.
Also Akuma doesn't even have posted his Zanku Hadoken, nor his Shakunetsu hadoken, and it doesn't even have his Gou Shoryuken. Cmon, Akuma without those moves isnt akuma, (unless its a vs game, then he wont get his Shakunetsu hadoken, which i love using)

Me said on February 10, 2012 at 5:24 p.m.

@107 No Akuma Copter is Akumas' 2nd ultra in SSFIV

3ALOOI said on February 12, 2012 at 9:46 a.m.

So dudley reveal this week ?

XxRagingxDemonxX said on February 12, 2012 at 12:41 p.m.

Demon Armageddon is Akuma Copter?? Well, either way, tell Capcom you want a special request Animation for it.

darko_p86 said on February 12, 2012 at 7:12 p.m.

hold on now. for ssf4, it's hopeless. i was talking about sfxt. and i was asking your (and others) opinion on it. but if you don't like it, that's fine. i WOULD love to see it in sfxt, but i'm not gonna stir up a fuss over it, nor will i contact up some company and beg for it either.

XxRagingxDemonxX said on February 12, 2012 at 9:30 p.m.

Yea, ik u mean for Sfxt. What is Akuma Copter. Demon Armageddon or Messatsu gou Rasen?? the one where akuma does the hurricane kick and goes straight up for alot of hits. I cant really picture Akuma doing that, i cnt really picture it anyways b/c not sure what akumacopter is lol.

I didnt say contact anyone for it, i was saying if Capcom is doing open request animations then you should describe that to them, then maybe i might actually be able to see Akuma doing that move lol.

No fuss, just trying to clear things up

Me said on February 13, 2012 at 1:42 p.m.

@ 113 Dude I already said Akumacopter is Demon Armageddon.

XxRagingxDemonxX said on February 14, 2012 at 4:16 p.m.

Dude, ok. well yea it would be a better show, still cant see akuma doing all that.

darko_p86 said on February 14, 2012 at 7:51 p.m.

can you see a stupid bear farting in your characters face? i cant...yet it's still happeneing

XxRagingxDemonxX said on February 15, 2012 at 7:32 p.m.

Omg i refreshed this thing and new Char, updates!!! F Yea Akuma!!!!

Hayabusa_San said on February 16, 2012 at 8:08 a.m.

I don't know if anyone already mentioned this, but all the special characters (Cole and the cats) should be on their own clasification as "Special Guests" or something similar.

Other than that little point, good job!!!

XxRagingxDemonxX said on February 16, 2012 at 9:18 a.m.

Yea i said that on Cole's strategy guide

XxRagingxDemonxX said on February 16, 2012 at 11:29 a.m.

Im going to try every character with every character! omg That is a mission right there. At least then ill have some idea as to expect when i see them online.

Me said on February 16, 2012 at 4:21 p.m.

Where is Megaman and Pacman

Halos said on February 28, 2012 at 1:42 a.m.

i know there are moves that have armor properties but i havent noticed any move that break the armor, does anyone know if it similar to sf4 or if there arent any armor breaking moves.

XxRagingxDemonxX said on February 28, 2012 at 11:43 a.m.

Hey! i found something on Sodom, idk if anyone saw it b/c it was impossible to see without constant pausing:

On the wall it says "Sodom is behind you" For all you Sodom fans, this might be a big hint to disk or future DLC

@126 nobody said they're not on the XBox 360 version.

Could somebody tell me in Scramble mode how you choose which direction you are facing if you are between two opposing teammates?

iampluperfeCT said on March 4, 2012 at 4:37 p.m.

@126 They are releasing them as dlc but they didn't announce when. I'm guessing around fall since that's when stxt comes out for the ps vita.

Kazuya said on March 4, 2012 at 11:31 p.m.

No Mega Man page yet?

I don't see very many people playing as him.

Raelador said on March 6, 2012 at 8:06 a.m.

I thought they were going to rework Pandora mode because it's pointless and stupid. Seth Killian couldn't even find a use for it.

Virtua_Kazama said on March 8, 2012 at 6:57 a.m.

@ #130: That's because he's not out yet.

@ #131: Actually there are some useful options for Pandora mode. One of them is when all your energy and your opponent's energy is down under 25%. It has some uses, but you can't use it instantly.

darko_p86 said on March 9, 2012 at 10:05 a.m.

has ANYONE figured out a somewhat easier way to complete MISSION MODE stages 17, 19, and 20? the rest was a cake to me, but i'm kinda stumped at these stages.

darko_p86 said on March 10, 2012 at 1:08 a.m.

damn i don't know but somehow this is not right. i had a huge hype before release, but now... its fading. i was way better in sf4/ssf4. game feels weird. not laggy, just my combos won't come out as smoothly as in ssf4. take guile for example. in ssf4, i used to do cp>cp>mp>flash-kick FLAWLESSLY!; but in this game that combo won't come out even though i'm punching in the same exact motion as in ssf4. instead of a flash-kick or a boom, he usually does just a fierce punch which comes out quite fast btw, but nonetheless, WRONG MOVE!!! even my anti air, c.fp won't work as well as it did. spinning back knuckle does not have that range it did. theres just a lotta things that feel weird.

and i miss being able to focus cancel soo much. sometimes i think i still can do it and change characters by mistake. damn i loved flashing through hadokens and absorbing the close range attacks i knew were imminent; or EX focus cancelling out of a blocked flash-kick. they should have kept that feature

there is NO "pick-your-opponent" feature in ranked. and you can't msg the ppl right after the battle or view profile with the push of a button (TRIANGLE in my case). I hate

the online lags out the music in some instances no matter how good your ISP is.

damn i could go on and on.... yet still i'm giving this a chance.

Ozymandias_rcl said on March 10, 2012 at 6:32 a.m.

@ 134:

Let me requote you:

"Buwääähh, i play this game like some other game and it wont work."

Learn to play SFXT, dont play it like SF4...

Savage_Alchemist said on March 10, 2012 at 6:01 p.m.

rage quitting is getting ridiculous -.-

Hamish said on March 10, 2012 at 10:54 p.m.

well done guys keep it it up hope to see all moves and properties when its finished cheers

darko_p86 said on March 11, 2012 at 6:23 p.m.


you're probably right, but you don't have to be an a$$hole about it! i admit i going at it the wrong way.

Hrm said on March 12, 2012 at 1:19 a.m.

The damage reduction in this game feels so ridiculous for a game with so much focus on combos.
What good is it doing a long, fancy combo into super if I can do more damage with just LMH>Super?

XxRagingxDemonxX said on March 13, 2012 at 12:26 p.m.

^^^ Some people like hugo can do 50% Damage no meter. So, the damage reduction is for ppl like him b/c Capcom knows there are alot of Tier whores out there. They should put specific damage reduction on certain characters. Like the ones that do 10 hits for one move, shouldn't get that big of a damage reduction, B/c at times it makes them weak.

With the extreme Damage Scaling there are still a lot of time outs. They also made Cross Assault so bad, even with someone playing the other character, since you can't combo into it (I think) You don't do much damage b/c they just block whole time and even if you are a grappler it doesn't do much good b/c those animations take a long time, when you are done, the bar is almost gone. EX moves shouldn't reduce the bar.

iampluperfeCT said on March 16, 2012 at 8:25 p.m.

Ok I have to say, I was so pumped about this game!! It came out crappy!! I mean tekken players with street fighter motions? No four button combos? No Focus attacks? They took the worse of Both and added the together!!! N now they charge us for quick combos n players that are already on the disc!!!!! What's next, charging for super moves????? SFXT 3/10

darko_p86 said on March 17, 2012 at 1:46 a.m.


like i said before, capcoms milking plans have merely begun. they realized that with ssf4, ppl will buy DLC's regardless of how mad they get.

RebornOdin said on March 17, 2012 at 6:21 p.m.


Are you mentally challenged, or are you honestly always this stupid? You can be honest with us. Only someone that isn't all there would think that Capcom is "charging you for Quick combos". Do you even know what quick combos are? You know, LP + HK, LK + HP?


Congratulations kid, you responded to a point he didn't make.

XxRagingxDemonxX said on March 17, 2012 at 9:05 p.m.


lol if you care that Capcom is charging for quick combos you must be a complete scrub. I hate Quick Combos b/c they mess me up sometimes. Like when i try doing Raging Demon (Lp Lp > Lk Hp) it activates a Damn Quick Combo b/c i press the inputs way too fast for the stupid game and it messes me up so bad.

The worst of both?? Tekken characters always had some kind of SF motion moves anyways. They also still have their 4 button combos, you are just too stupid to pause the game, go to command list, and go to the char you want learn their moves. (thats a hint on where to find it, b/c it seems you are having some trouble)

Focus attack was the worst. The only real use was for ppl who want to FADC. You don't build much meter in that game, so to FADC wasn't the best thing to do, esp if you were someone who uses alot of EX moves or used supers.

The characters that were on the disk already, has been done b4 and you don't have to buy them. You know you are going to game share them with some rich kid anyways. I can't wait to buy them b/c its not like everyone in the whole world is going to boycott Capcom. There are alot of stupid ppl that think DLC is extra content that the company wants to give us. It's not all that extra, they could have given it to us from the beginning, but that doesn't gain extra money.

Zero254 said on March 17, 2012 at 10:31 p.m.

I'm going to probably wait for the complete edition or the vit a one.

iampluperfeCT said on March 18, 2012 at 9:34 a.m.

@143 dude b4 calling me retarded u should do ur research like a true GAMER! the two preset quick combos aren't the only quick combos. Capcom is releasing more quick combos for dlc, like ryu has a quick combo that uses all 3 of of ur energy bar, so do u home work b4 raising your hand in class.

@144 dude just bcuz ur crappy fingers can't do akumas moves without activating a quick combo is ur fault, I can do it at the drop of a hat. N yes wise guy I did look at the command list, but can u show me the ten hit combos that capcom promised in the beginning to tekken fans or is kazuya n Jin the only ones with atleast a plan six hit combo? I thought so, n focus attacks was a great way to punish fools who jump in and who spam hadokens close up. Was the move perfect no, but u can spin thru a tataumaki with Steve fox in here so why can street fighter players have focus attacks if every tekken players has projectile dodging.

XxRagingxDemonxX said on March 18, 2012 at 7:13 p.m.


Don't call my fingers crappy, when my execution is better than a stupid dropped hat. I normally do it right after someone does Shinkuu Hadoken, on the ground, with Ryu and i phase through that crap and do the Raging Demon. I do it perfectly every other game, its just b/c if i press it too fast It reads it as me pressing LK+HP which is a quick combo.

What promised combos?? They said they will keep their 1-1-2 combos and their 4 button combos. They didn't promise everything. Anyways if you checked the vids posted by people, you will see that they are doing combos that are more than 10 hit with one Tekken character.

Reasons why Focus attack isn't implemented:
1) It sucks, and everyone would have to have to, b/c that wouldn't be fair to the tekken cast. Tekken characters don't have any projectiles, so thats why they need to dodge them.

2) WTF would be its input?!? Have you even thought about that?? It was MP+MK in SF4. MP+MK does switching now, HP+HK does launchers. LP+HP does grabs. HP+LK does one quick combo. LP+HK does the other. So you want people to do MK+HP or HP+MK or whatever?? Then that would affect gameplay esp the tekken characters who have to press almost every button to pull off a good long combo. So you think about that one b4 replying b/c focus attack wasn't that good to implement.

Your reasons in this game aren't good enough reasons to implement focus attack. Anti-air for the jump-in fools, Hadoken spammers up close... Cr.HK?? knock them down, get in their face and punish them or get away and lure them into a combo. Adapt to the new and better gameplay.

Again! stop complaining about quick combos, you can make them yourself

iampluperfeCT said on March 20, 2012 at 9:49 a.m.

@147 dude king has a LP+MK move and a LK+MP move, ever thought of those buttons for a focus attack? It's obvious ur one if those nit pick Ppl who thinks just bcuz it's a new game it's better, well it's not. N the bids are others custom combos not in the command list, maybe ur the guy who bites off another guy/girls combo n brag to ur 2 online friends that u made. Also if UR so good at adapting to "better game play" u shouldn't b messing up akumas raging demon.

sarif2soon said on March 23, 2012 at 4:05 p.m.

Wow, so much horrible spelling.
If you are a player AT LEAST familiar with the controls, you wouldn't need quick combos nor would you mess up shun goku satsu.

Why do you hate the fact that the twelve dlc are on-disc? are you going to main them all? when i want to pick a main, i play online to see which character beats me up the most (i'm a noob, but beating differs) or i watch online replays.

This is a mildly fast-paced game. Not as slow as sf4 (well, it's not slow, but you get the point) and not as fast as mvc (More like cvs). Now ask yourselves: Does mvc or cvs have focus attacks?

The gameplay is spectacular. My friends (who have no experience what-so-ever) came over and we played sfxt from 5 to 12 pm. Now, one of them has ryu as his profile picture on facebook. This game is meant for casuals and hardcores alike. Things like quick combos and easy input gems are for casuals. Get over it.

Capcom is known for its "money milking ways" since sf2. Expecting them to not do it is like expecting fire not to burn.

A final note: all characters are using SF engine. One new to the sf side (poison), 5 ps3 exclusives, 19 available tekken characters and 6 more upcoming ones. A grand total of 31 (26 for 360) NEW characters, not to mention the 24 previous sf characters. Now stop crying about quick combos and gems.

bloodstorm_xl said on March 25, 2012 at 10:19 a.m.


Sorry I havent really checked out the details of the game but all I knew at this point was that we are being charged for gems. But a few questions:

1) Quick combos are a nuisance and I know I can take them off, but I thinK i read somewhere that Capcom will unlock more at a cost? Are they for real?

2) Online play is sooo garbage, my input and timing is way off, the special effect sounds get muffled by the music on that stage. Audio overall gets messed up. Has anyone else noticed this? I know my inputs are correct cause Ive played SFIV like forever and know how to position and time my inputs.

3) Colors are so limited, apparently they are charging for colors which was free in SSFIV, and unlocked as you played SFIV? Seriously?

4) I for one liked the input of the focus attack as a viable counter move, the new input for the counter attach doesnt seem intuitive. Can this be mapped?

This game seems to have taken the fun out of the series, I always liked the online section of SFIV, but this game just seems whack. Ill give it a chance as Ive only had it for a few days, but considering I will have to pay for stuff that were included in the last game like colors.....Im not sure Ill keep it....which sucks.

sarif2soon said on March 25, 2012 at 10:24 a.m.

do colors, quick combos and sound really matter if you're a good player?

DragonEXecuTionER said on March 28, 2012 at 4:28 p.m.

Duckin' love this game! But what should've happened was SF x Tekken x KOF. I know I know, there would be legal issues that might not make it happen, it would be so epic. It would be the greatest crossover capcom ever devised.

Captaincatnip said on April 13, 2012 at 2:05 a.m.

funny how you are actually saying people who want a fully functioning product are bad players. how much are you getting from capcom? 200? 500bucks?

i find your lack of proper standards disturbing.

I want this fixed, and i know alot of people with me.
The game will be better with sound online, no discussion there. so why in gods name go against something that will only have positive impact on your experience as well?
your logic eludes me.
Why defend such an obvious flaw in SfxT's netcode?

THawk said on April 16, 2012 at 8:15 p.m.

Well... I'm completely done with this game. Going to sell it back to Amazon and get 30 bucks back. I hated it at first, but I still gave the game a chance to grow on me.

Other than a couple characters, I absolutely hate everything about this game. From boring gameplay and music to ridiculous character colors. Nevermind the fact that Capcom is nickle-and-diming their loyal customers. No amount of patches will ever fix this sloppy, rushed, poor excuse of a quality fighting game.

If you actually like this game, than more power to you, I suppose... I'll be content with AE (still) and the amazing Skullgirls.

Adellmanga said on April 17, 2012 at 9:24 a.m.

ha all the people who sold or stoped playuing sfxt was due to the constint ryu and gayzuya players online doesnt matter to me i have jin and king il keep playing this til my disc breaks great job ono :D JUST GIVE ME YUN AND LEE forgetget that drunk disgrace lei O__O

thf24 said on April 18, 2012 at 10:58 p.m.

This is not a great game by fighting game standards and it is understandable that people genuinely don't like it, but I feel sorry for all the people who convinced themselves that it's not fun based on others' opinions. I'm having a lot of fun with it despite the flaws.

HooliganComboFTW said on April 27, 2012 at 9:52 p.m.

Wow, looking back this game had so much hype and potential..
