Street Fighter 4: Ken and Ryu Throw Down in 3D
What's with all the Capcom news? The trailer for Street Fighter IV was released yesterday, and while it doesn't give much away as far as gameplay goes, it's well directed, showcases some nice character design, and just about trips over it's own AfterEffects flourishes. My biggest qualm is that Ken does that horribly over-used "bring it on" hand gesture. You know what I'm talking about, like from the Matrix? Which came out eight years ago? Fight choreographers, please, find some other button to press.
Yeah, so, Street Fighter IV; I hope A. It's keeps the old school side scroll and B. We get a look at the character lineup soon, cause I want to see some familiar faces. And I'm not talking about those second-stringers from Street Fighter EX or III or any of that crap, I'm talking about BLANKA, DHALSIM, and VEGA. The crazy ones! And maybe Cammy, just for balance. Something about Russian girls, I don't know. (EDIT: Apparently I'm remembering wrong, Cammy is British. Must have been a dream I had.)
