    Anyone picking this gem up? After eight hours of classes today, I'll be hitting up Gamestop and picking up my copy, and probably will be playing long into the night. If anyone is getting it for PS3, look for me online.

    Eh. Same old game. Nothing new. In order to make me want to buy a Street Fighter game, they're going to have to put some effort in reviving the game.
    The graphics look last gen. The game style is 2 generations ago. Just not sure why this game would have anyone excited.

    The fact is that the same old SFII formula still works better than these nancy fighters out there (I'm looking at you Soul Caliber), even though the mechanics are a genius "easy to pick up, very hard to master". Plus, playing experts online will make the game feel fresher than ever. I've already played it in the arcade, and it wipes the floor with all these other fighters out there.

    Where'd you play it at? Was it a Japanese import cabinet?

    Imported, up in NYC in Chinatown arcade called Fair Video Arcade. Sweeter setup than I'd ever have at home; it had four cabinets hooked up to a 32 inch HD monitor.

    I don't know when the the game will be streamlined into all arcades, but I don't think they've come down any far east or south but Pennsylvania. California has a ton of them too so I've heard.

    Yeah, I mean, I like Soul Caliber as a whole, but the newest one just proved to be that's too basic to be taken seriously as a great fighting series.

    I can't get into fighters. I regret getting Soul Calibre IV.
