PRE-ORDER STREET FIGHTER IV MASTER GUIDE

ARCADIASo in the post below, there was mention of an Arcadia magazine Street Fighter IV guide with strategies and frame data . Well, this guide is already up for pre-order on play-asia! It will most likely be all in Japanese but I'm sure you can figure things out by looking at the numbers and notation.

FAMITSU GOUKEN SCREENSHOTS, UNPLAYABLE CHARACTER?

So this Famitsu link has been floating around for a couple days. It contains clean screenshots for almost all of Gouken's moves.

You may have to copy and paste the address into your browser window in order to load up the page:

http://www.famitsu.com/game/news/1218440_1124.html


Also, another interesting bit of information related to Gouken from Reno on SRK:

Enterbrain/Arcadia magazine will be releasing a mook for Street Fighter 4 on October 2.

http://www.arcadiamagazine.com/cgi-b...iew.cgi?id=183

Looks like it'll be about 168 pages in A4 format, and sell for about 1500 yen. I'll be picking one up when it goes on sale.

Interesting note in the summary text is that it says it introduces the moves and strats for the 17 characters, and the 2 non-playable characters, Seth and Gouken. Hm, perhaps those two are not playable after all?

Most importantly... there will be frame data in the mook! Rejoice suckas!

CLOSER LOOK AT GOUKEN

Alright, so this is me just playing some Theory Fighter, but after watching a couple videos of Gouken I have had some ideas on how he may play if he ever becomes selectable like Akuma.

Really the main thing I have been looking at is how he will utilize his Focus Attack Dash Cancel into his Ultra.

A couple thoughts:

  • After the rush punch in the corner, FADC into ShinShoRyuken. Since the opponent flies through the air I don't believe you will be able to do this mid screen.
  • First hit of his hurricane kick. I am not sure if the first hit launches, but if it does you should be able to FADC and then juggle into ultra.
  • After the anti-air fireball. This probably depends on the recovery of the move and also the angle in which the opponent is hit.
  • Air-Counter -> Air hurricane kick -> FADC -> land -> Ultra. Serious Theory fighter here in that I'm not sure what you can follow up with after the air counter or if you can FADC the air hurricane kick.

GAMASUTRA: SFIV YOSHI ONO INTERVIEW

YOSHINORI ONO SFIV PRODUCER  

This is a real indepth interview from Gamasutra with Yoshinori Ono on Street Fighter IV.

One thing that seems to always come up in these interviews is Street Fighter III and how "complicated" the game play system is. The thing is, after spending a month or two with SFIV myself, I actually think the Focus Attack system is far more complicated than the parry system in SF3.

If you watch some of the newer videos coming out, a lot of top players are making good use of it but the actual inputs for a focus attack dash cancel among other things are much more complicated than just tapping forward or down for a parry. I think a lot of casuals and journalists do not realize this yet and the game is still being presented as a "simpler street fighter, a rewind to Street Fighter II".

I think once the game is out on console and people start playing others online who have had time with the game they will see this. 

Of course you can play the game SFII style, but to do real damage in this game you must utilize the focus attack dash cancel system. We'll see how it plays out.

SOFT-BAN ON GOUKEN? (VIDEO)

Yes, I know, too early to tell but watching this new video makes me think so. Nice find by Oldschoolgamer on NeoGAF, this video showcases more of Goukens abilities. Looks like the rush punch goes through fireballs and he has some sort of air-focus attack/air-parry? He is pretty much the only character in the game who can do this.

FIRST VIDEO OF GOUKEN

We all knew it was coming today and here it is: First video of Gouken in action! It appears his EX fireball is the upwards fireball we saw in the previous shots.. but he also throws out a regular fireball at the same time. Seems kind of..cheap! You'll see his hurricane kick is vertical and seems to start off with an extra ground hit. Lastly: SHIN...SHO...RYUKEN!

Thanks to Reno for posting the criteria for being able to fight him in the arcade:


- According to the official SF4 blog, this is what you have to do in order to fight Gouken: Just a note... if you have to use a continue against Seth, you won't get to fight Gouken lol.

1. Do not use any continues
2. Do not lose the first round in any fight
3. You have to get a certain number of perfects depending on what the machine is set to.

Set to 1 round: Must get a perfect in at least one match.
Set to best of 3: Must get 2 perfects
Set to best of 5: Must get 3 perfects
Set to best of 7: Must get 4 perfects

AKUMA'S ALTERNATE COSTUME

Alright, so Kunai has a nice thread on SRK (be sure to check his awesome C.Viper thread as well) with all the alternate costumes for Street Fighter 4. Today was the first day I saw Akuma's which I thought is a lot better than most of the other characters at this point. Hopefully the console release will have many more alternate costumes for each character.

NEWEST ADDITION TO STREET FIGHTER 4 ROSTER: GOUKEN

GOUKEN FAMITSU SCANOkay, here it is, the Famitsu scan showing Gouken as the new character in Street Fighter 4. All the hints dropped on the Japanese Street Fighter 4 blog have been pointing to this for weeks now. Not sure about a move list or exact date he will show up in the arcades, although I believe it is 26th of this month.

GAMESPOT: STREET FIGHTER SHOWDOWN (SF4 & HD REMIX)

Gamespot is hosting a Street Fighter tournament at the CBS center in San Francisco next week. Only a weeks notice, I know, but the prize money is $1000 and there is no entry fee. It is from 3pm-8pm which I'm sure will make it difficult for some people to get to, including myself!

KOTAKU: "GUY RIGS SF4 BOARD TO HD-TV"

Title says it all. I saw the board on Coin-Op Express and it looked like it just comes with an HDMi cable so if you can afford to buy two HDTVs and two boards it shouldn't be too terribly difficult to do this yourself. Many arcade operators are essentially doing the same thing with HDTVs inside real arcade cabs.

MORE KING OF FIGHTERS XII FOOTAGE

This is probably the best video released yet. Shows some decent gameplay and some amazing shadowing on the stages. 

To me it still looks like there is a lot of work to be done. Although it looks great there are still some inconsistencies with the animations. Also, around the 4 minute mark you will see Terry get crossed up some how and continue to do crouching kicks the opposite direction. Looks pretty glitchy.
