Street Fighter V review

With any long-running series, there's a delicate balance between retaining the things that people love and refreshing the decor. With Street Fighter V [official site], Capcom have come close to hitting a reset button marked '1991' when it comes to fighting systems and yet this is the most forward-looking game in the series, with one eye fixed on the world of esports. It's a streamlined…

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…

Free Honda: Ultra Street Fighter IV Free Weekend

There was a period in the mid-nineties when Rise of the Robots and One Must Fall: 2097 were the only beat 'em ups available on PC. Believing robotic participants to be the future of combat sports, Colin Computer, CEO of PC Incorporated, banned all fighting games containing living combatants. When it became clear that people might accidentally play Rise of the Robots in a two-game…

Super Street Fighter IV Ditching Games For Windows Live

SSFIVAE is breaking free from GFWL! What does that mean? It means that Super Street Fighter IV Arcade Edition is snapping the shackles of Games For Windows Live and switching to Steamworks this coming Friday. This is good news, because Games For Windows Live may soon vanish (though given this is Microsoft, it's not quite that simple) and it's not yet clear which games will…

Combo Breaker: Ultra Street Fighter IV Trailer

In another life, I didn't spend the entire Easter weekend managing virtual football teams, but instead spent it practicing fighting game combos. I like to think that this dimensional doppelgänger has enough good taste to make Street Fighter his puncher of choice. I've never been good at it, but I've read enough to know that it's good. And the trailer below for Ultra Street Fighter…

C-c-c-combo Trainer: Street Fighter IV Tool Teaches Timing

I've button-mashed many a fighting game character just to watch them die, but recently I've been trying roll my fighting game knowledge-train a little further down the line. As reported by Wired, the Street Fighter IV Combo Trainer looks like a good way of doing that. It's a fan-created mod that helps you practice the timing of combo attacks.

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…

SF X Tekken And SSFIV AE Coming To PC

Are we still sore about Capcom not bringing Super Street Fighter IV to the PC? y/n? Well, in case you can't decipher those aconyms in the headline, today Capcom announced that they're working on PC releases of both the enhanced Arcade Edition of Super Street Fighter IV, boasting four new playable characters (Yun, Yang, Oni and Evil Ryu), some balance changes and an impressive new…

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…

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…
