Feature: Why Street Fighter Belongs To PC

Ultra Street Fighter IV’s Long Road To Becoming The World’s Greatest Fighting Game

A month or so ago there was a Capcom weekend on Steam, where some of the publisher's finest cuts were free to play for a few days. Out of curiosity as to whether my old 360 arcade stick would work with it I downloaded Ultra Street Fighter IV [official site]. I have a long history with Street Fighter IV and thought I knew what to…

Wolves Did It: Why Capcom’s PC Versions Are Late

Protest as we might, PC versions of big-name console games arriving later than their disc-bound cousins increasingly seems to be a fact of gaming life. We've heard all manner of excuses in the past, from polish to piracy, but Capcom have just offered their own reasoning for why we see the likes of Resi and Street Fighter amble onto PC weeks later than their console…

Man vs Man: SF x Tekken On PC

My choice of feckless, work-dodging pursuit while a student (due to being too poor to afford a PC at the time) was PlayStation man-thumper Tekken, specifically 2 and 3 in the series. While I haven't explored its strange lands of fighting bears and suicidal undead samaurai for many years, a certain nostalgia tickles at my childlike soul upon news that Namco's longstanding brawler is to…

Are You Ready? Fight! SSF4:AE DRM WTF

UPDATE: Capcom appear to be reconsidering certain elements of their DRM plans, but removing GFWL is not on the table, and they say that removing the DRM completely is "not feasible". They also discuss removing the DRM from legitimate copies of the game in the event of it being cracked. Here's a new one. The original Street Fighter 4 sold well on the PC by…

Hadokan’t: No Super Street Fighter IV For PC

Gamasutra reports that despite strong sales of Street Fighter IV on the PC and the game being built on DirectX technology, Capcom has no intention of gracing our beloved platform with Super Street Fighter IV. The reason? Piracy. Producer Yoshinori Ono has stated that the company "cannot allow a situation" where the game is available for free on any platform, and that a PC port…

Street Fighter IV: Hello, Yes, Still Here

The months since the latest iteration of the evergreen fighting series appeared on filthy console grow longer, and still there's no sign of a release date for the much-anticipaterooed PC version. Let's hope it's a sign Capcom are really committed to getting it right. What we do now have, however, is word on some PC-exclusive new features...

You Ken-not Be Serious

Good news, everyone. Street Fighter IV is to see a PC release. The part of me that wasn't allowed a SNES or Megadrive when I was young is fair excited by this unexpected prospect of console thrills on my pixel-box of choice, while the sniffy PC snob in me is grumpily WTFing. Striving for objectivity, I'm quite pleased. The PC's done much to shake off…
