250px-Sf4-ken_big.jpg
Ken: Ryu's color swap and training partner might share moves with Ryu but he's more likely to send you flying with a flaming Shoryuken, overused online.
250px-Sf4-chun-li.jpg
Chun-Li: She might be a woman but she can still kick your ass with her trademark thunder thighs.

250px-Sf4-blanka.jpg

250px-Gouken1.jpg
Gouken: The trainer of Ryu and Ken and the closest your ever going to get to having Sheng Long.

250px-Sf4-dan.jpg
Dan: Street Fighter's joke character. He intentionally sucks but everyone loves him.

Fei-Long: He's pretty much a Bruce Lee that can set his legs on fire. Which is just fine with most people.
250px-Sf4-rose.jpg
Rose: An Italian fortune teller who shares Bison's soul or something. She has a pretty scarf which functions as a weapon and a sham-wow.

Unlocking Characters
(all information taken from the Street Fighter Wiki)

Cammy Beat Arcade Mode with C. Viper.
Fei Long Beat Arcade Mode with Abel.
Gen Beat Arcade Mode with Chun-Li.
Rose Beat Arcade Mode with M. Bison.
Sakura Beat Arcade Mode with Ryu.
Dan Beat Arcade Mode with Sakura.
Akuma (see below).
Gouken (see below).
Seth Beat Arcade Mode with everyone.

To unlock Akuma as a playable character:
1. Unlock Cammy, Fei Long, Dan, Sakura, Rose, and Gen.
2. Pick a character you have already used to beat Arcade Mode.
3. Win all your matches without continuing and without losing any rounds before fighting with Seth.
4. You need to get at least one "perfect" win in a round, and more than one depending on how many rounds per match you are playing.
- 1 round match: 1 perfect round or more
- 3 round match: 2 perfect rounds or more
- 5 round match: 3 perfect rounds or more
- 7 round match: 4 perfect rounds or more
5. If you meet these conditions, Akuma will appear. Defeat him to unlock Akuma as a selectable character.

To unlock Gouken as a playable character:
1. Complete Arcade Mode playing as Akuma and watch (not necessary to watch everything) an ending.
2. Then, unlock Gouken as an opponent, and defeat him.
Necessary conditions to unlock Gouken as an opponent:
-Play with any characters with which you watched the ending once (so play using a character you have already beaten the game with)
-Do not continue at all.
-Do not lose at all. Not even one round (easier if you only play 1-round matches)
-Achieve certain number (or more) of "Perfect" rounds. The number of Perfect Win you need to achieve are:
If you play on:
1 round match: 1 time or more
3 round match: 2 times or more
5 round match: 3 times or more
7 round match: 4 times or more
-Achieve a certain number (or more) of Super Combo -OR- Ultra Combo Finishes. Super and Ultra finishes both count toward this number. The number of super/ultra finishes you need to achieve are:
If you play on
1 round match: 3 times or more
3 round match: 5 times or more
5 round match: 7 times or more
7 round match: 9 times or more
-Achieve certain number (or more) of First Attack (this means you must score the first strike in a match--the screen gives you the "First Attack" message, and you can mostly do this without even noticing):
If you play on
1 round match: 5 first attacks or more
3 round match: 10 first attacks or more
5 round match: 15 first attacks or more
7 round match: 20 first attacks or more
-Then Gouken will appear. Kick his butt to unlock him!

Alternate costumes
Each character has a different costume they can wear. The costumes are paid DLC and can be purchased in preset packs of five or in a bundle. Each pack individually is 320 MS points (or $4 each). The all-in-one pack is 1000 MS points (or $12). The costumes are for appearances only and don't grant the character any special attributes.

Character Stats
Each character is different in their moves, speed, and sizes but did you know that they also have different health, stun, dash, and jump values? The biggest difference between the characters is their health levels. The bigger, slower characters (Zangief, Rufus, etc) take more damage to KO while the smaller, faster characters (Chun Li, El Fuerte) take less damage to KO. The two powerful boss characters, Seth and Akuma, take a lot more damage than the rest of the cast due to their offensive abilities and options they have available to them. For a complete breakdown of the characters statistical differences, check out this link:

Eventhubs.com

Online Play
Street Fighter IV has a few online modes that allow players from around the world to challenge each other in head to head battles. Here are some things you should know before jumping online:

-There are a multitude of skill levels for players online. You will run into new players and guys who have been playing Street Fighter for twenty years. Online is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you’re going to get.
-You can play either Ranked Matches, Player Matches, or enter Championship Mode.
-Ranked matches have you facing off against another opponent for the chance to earn Battle Points (BP). Your BP's will go up or down depending on whether you win or lose. The greater the BP levels are between the two players the greater or lesser the effect will be. If player levels are fairly close (say within 100 or so points) the gain/loss is around 30 or so points. BP levels are used as an approximation of skill, but some players have artificially raised their BP levels, so take any BP value with a grain of salt.
-Player matches are generally used to play people when statistics aren't a concern. A lot of good players can be found this way, probably more so than in Ranked mode. The biggest advantage of Player matches are that when a game is over, you go back to a lobby and can play the opponent again. This is the best way to play games with friends or fellow Penny Arcade people.
-Championship mode is a free DLC that was added after launch. This mode is for people who want to really step up their game and challenge better players. In this mode, you start by entering into the lowest level of tournaments and earn Grade Points (GP) to advance to higher level tournaments. As you earn GPs your rank will rise from E all the way up to A. After that, you will move up to the next tournament level and start back down at E again. This continues through four levels of tournaments. Most PA players here fall in the G3 or G2 rankings. You can earn GPs by defeating other players in tournaments. When you defeat someone, you earn their current GPs in the form of Championship Points (CP). When you finish the tournament, your earned CPs are converted into GPs and added to your total.

For an extremely detailed breakdown of how Championship mode works, visit this thread at shoryuken.com. Credit goes to our very own forum poster Aumni for compiling all the data.

PC 'Mod'ness!
The PC version of Street Fighter IV has already begun being hacked and modded for humorous results. Check out some of these videos to see move sets being swapped between characters or completely different character models being created. Insane stuff.

The best moveset swap.

This is a close contender though.

And some of them manage to not warp the face too badly.

Penny Arcade Tournaments
I have been running tournaments for the members of the PA forums here for a little while now. These tournaments are all meant for casual, friendly matches with bragging rights and an occasional belt image going to the winner. The tournaments come in a variety of flavors from single elimination, team matches, a suicide tournament (requires you to win with more than one character), and our very own Street Fighter League.

If you are interested in getting involved, take a look at the official thread found here.

Controllers
The MadCatz Fightpad ($40)
ps3-sfiv-fightpad-chun-li-490.jpg
Based off the Sega Saturn controller it features a nice floatly D-Pad and a 6 face button set-up along with turbo options. Great for those who want to be good but don't want to break the bank either.

The Fight Stick (PS3 $70, 360 $80)
51CsxvLuibL._AA280_.jpg
The standard fight stick featuring a eight button layout with start and back on the side. Has turbo options as well as a disabler so you don't accidentally hit the home button during a fight. Is easily customizable and a fine entry stick.

The Tournament Fight Stick ($150)
41Hc2-YUzRL._AA280_.jpg
This super fancy one is literally all the parts straight from the original arcade cabinet at a hefty 6lbs. It has all the features from the standard plus extras including being able to screw it right to a table.

As an owner of both the Fightpad and the Tournament stick, I can completely vouch for how rock solid they are to use. Your game will get a noticeable jump in performance from the ease of pulling off moves with controllers. If you're serious about getting better and competing in Street Fighter IV, I'd highly recommend picking up whichever controller your budget will allow for.

You can always make your own controller or purchase a custom stick. Check out Shoryuken's tech forum for more information.

Also, don't forget to visit our sister thread for the game Super Street Fighter 2 Turbo: HD Remix (or HDR for short). HDR plays very much like SF4 and is a lot of fun. At only $15, I'd highly recommend picking it up and giving it a whirl. You can find the thread here.

Did you know?
-360 motions done by doing f,df,d,db,b,ub,u+p/k or b,db,d,df,f,uf,u+p/k instead of an actual 360 degree motion.
-Any half-circle motions (f, df, d, db, b for example) can be done by pressing df, b+p/k. This makes doing moves like Honda's Ochio throw (df, b+p) or Chun Li's Hazan Shu (df, b+k) much easier to pull off.
-Any dragon punch motion (f, d, df+p/k) can be done by pressing df, df+p/k. Use this to pull off backwards teleports with M.Bison and go right into his ultra combo.
-Going to ub instead of up on d/u charge moves allows you to retain your charge, which is useful for comboing into EX moves/Supers/Ultras.
-Reversals attacks can break armored moves.
-Charges moves done b,f,b+p/k to allow you to charge faster.
-Multi tap moves activate on fifth hit (Chun Li's lightning leg or E.Honda's hundred hand are good examples). You can use this to activate a certain strength of the move by making the level you want the fifth button press.
-More hits does not always mean more damage. There is a damage scaling feature in SF4 that makes each additional hit in a combo do less and less damage. Say an Super fireball from Ryu does 1/3 off your health normally. If he tacks the same super onto the end of a long combo, the damage reduction will cause it to do a lot less. Because of this, a simple 3 hit combo could do the same damage as a flashier 20+ hit combo.
-When using a Focus attack or a move with armor, you can absorb one hit and not be stunned. The damage you receive from the move will be represented as gray on your health bar and will recover over time as long as you don't get hit.
-Ultra combos do more damage depending on how full the revenge meter is.
-The revenge meter only fills up when you take damage. You can use the Focus Attack to absorb fireballs to fill up the meter, just make sure to not get hit while your life restores.
-Cammy's holligan throw can be avoided by simply ducking.
-Cammy can instant air cannon strike by doing d,db,b,uf+k or d,db,b,ub/u/uf+2k for EX-Cannon strike.
-Dan is the only character in the game who can cancel his Super into his Ultra.
-Dhalsim can instant air teleport f,d,df,f,uf+3P or 3K (reverse motions for backwards teleport)
-Abel's command grab beats throws, but is vulnerable to attacks. His EX-command grab beats attacks (including some get up moves), but is vulnerable to other throws.
-Blanka can hop forward by pressing df+KKK, then unleash the anti-air Blanka ball by pressing uf, u, or ub+k.
-Blanka's Ultra has to be blocked low, high, then either high or low.
-Blanka's Ultra vulnerable on the way down after the initial leap up.
-Blanka can control himself left and right during his EX-Rainbow ball.
-Akuma's Raging Demon last input can be combined into f/b+lk+fp.
-Guile/Vega Super/Ultra can be done by doing db,f,df,d,db,b,ub+K (KKK).
-M.Bison can do a special move or ultra out of a teleport by doing it this way: b,db,b,db+3k/3p. Doing the teleport this way maintains his charge.
-Vega can throw away his claw by doing f,d,df+any p. Doing this motion with 2 punches will cause him to throw off his mask and lose 2 bars of EX meter. This is generally only done to show off.
-If Vega loses his mask, he takes more damage until he recovers it. On the plus side, he does more damage while it's off.

    Great OP, Two Saikyo Thumbs Up!

    In other non-Dan news, after hours of playing him, Abel is finally starting to click for me. I'm getting the hang of his ranges and the different mixups he can do. Crossups are still tough for me to deal with, as is Zangief,

    Also, playing Abel has the side effect of completely fucking up my game with Ryu. I swapped to Ryu for one match and completely forgot that he had no roll nor command grab. Needless to say, I lost. To Dan. Funny how that works out.

    Edit: And wtf is up with falling sky? It either gets stuffed clean or trades nearly every time. The only time I can land it against a jumpin is when I psychically expect the jump and FS with just the right timing. Too early and it whiffs. Too late and it trades/gets stuffed. I'm just like wtf at this point.

    Hiryu02 on
    Sev: Your gameplay is the most heavily yomi based around. Usually you look for characters that allow you to force guessing situations for big dmg. Even if the guess is mathematically nowhere near in your favor lol. You're happiest when you have either a 50/50, 33/33/33 or even a 75/25 situation to go crazy with. And you will take big risks to force those situations to come up.

    Haha, very nice OP! I've been reading the last thread and following along on some of the videos. Those FADC ones are fantastic. I just wish I had a PC capable of running this, as I had my first taste not long ago on a friend's PS3. Maybe someday, I too will be able to don a pink gi.

    Yeah, good games last night Frosteey. The connection actually held out pretty well, so yay, and I need to learn how to tech throws more because you are very throw happy. -_-

    As for the Vega shenanigans, I've been focusing his wall splashes. No need to guess which way to block, and if they land in front of you, just release for a crumple and commence rape. Vega's alright if the player isn't just flip and dive happy.
    The other was a trash talking Akuma player who thought he had me trapped in an ultra. I thought I mashed the buttons to taunt jump over him, but I accidentally hit lk/lp and pulled him right out of his teleport forward to smash me into pieces. Apparently you can throw Akuma out of his ultra? He disconnected.
    Akuma has no invincibility frames built into his ultra. So you can really do whatever you want to him as he's soaring towards you. You can also do this to Dhalsim (throw him out of his ultra) and I think you can also throw Ryu out of his super.

    Lost to another Blanka this morning. I need to re-evaluate how I approach that matchup, because it is definately not 7-3 in my favor. =\.

    Dear Saikyo Master,

    Why do you spend all your time with a furry green Brazillian man named Jimmy? He sounds like he should be a comic book sidekick, not a Saikyo master's goon. And what's up with Sakura? You should tap that.

    Sincerely,
    Goukabel

    That Dan v Vega match was great. Nice to see him beat up that masked son of a bitch.

    I've officially made Dan my main.

    Did you know his regular special (the duck taunt one) actually serves a hidden purpose?

    I am amazed.

    If you are really making dan your main, there is this really good dan player in the alpha 2 room ggpo. If you can catch him, watch some of his matches because dan is seriously super bad in that game but he does really well.

    Wow...just fucking wow...

    I saw a video of Akuma trying to Ragind Demon Dan during his Legendary Taunt.

    Dan jumped over him during the last part of his taunt and cancelled into ultra.

    Saikyo rules, which is why Abel learned how to roll like Dan!

    Ok I'll just tell you cause it made me so giddy last night to know this.

    Ynow how his Ultra can go through like anything?

    His super special (taunt one) can be cancelled into his Ultra after each one of his rolls into the arm flex!

    This means you can bust out the special right after dropping a guy or keeping distance, as he thinks you're playing around just taunting away with this special of his, you can perform the ultra at any time the enemy brings his guard down and land it.

    I am going to test this when I get home, but picture the hilarity. :lol:

    Trip enemy -> taunt special enemy -> when enemy gets pissed off and decides to charge me -> Ultra.

    Sev: Your gameplay is the most heavily yomi based around. Usually you look for characters that allow you to force guessing situations for big dmg. Even if the guess is mathematically nowhere near in your favor lol. You're happiest when you have either a 50/50, 33/33/33 or even a 75/25 situation to go crazy with. And you will take big risks to force those situations to come up.

    That or, you can combo into his super. And his super can combo into the ultra. Hence allowing you to combo into his ultra the same way a character can normally combo into a super from normals or specials. Of course that's going to cost you his whole super and ultra bar to do it.

    Oh you meant cancelling his Super Taunt into his Ultra, I thought you meant one of his regular taunts.

    Yeah, I've used that before, but I rarely max out the super meter, because I tend to use EX moves a lot.

    Dan does have the magical power to wash away my usual SF4 rage.

    Even when I'm getting my ass handed to me, if I'm playing Dan then everything is as it should be.

    Yea I did this with the first hard trial challenge.

    It was so much fun finally pulling it off.

    I know honorably hold the title, "Taunt Master".

    To be perfectly honest, I was playing all my strong characters last night (Gouken, Akuma, Fei) and to no avail I was getting owned left and right in championship.

    I then proceed to go play Dan to lighten up a bit and get back to the roots of SF.

    I beat 4 people in championship in a row, losing to a ridiculous M. Bison in the finals.

    The thing I like about Dan, is he is straight up Shoto, but with several weird twists and advantages.

    His hadouken is perfect range to kite people into combos, and his jump into lk. hurricane kick sends you flying with a knee to the face, almost any class can be hit by this before they can hit you (Vega, Bison).

    This brings me back to the days of just worrying about connecting and letting the enemy waste his energy and make mistakes with combos.

    Then I come back with a sp.sk>EX hurricane kick. Shit feels so baws.

    I'm sticking with Dan.

    God I hate Zangief, I hate him to death. On Ryu I can usually scrape by the less skilled ones. On Abel I just cry.

    I'd rather fight Sagat.

    I used Cammy a bit in pracitce mode and I've got the standing cannon strike thing down on a pad about 40% of the time or so. I think I got through five in a row once. But this is the first time I've felt, like, muscle fatigue in my thumb while playing.

    I can actually do the Hooligan Throw now, too, which is awesome I guess.

    Dan's hard though because I have hard punch and kick on R1 and R2 and the trigger on the PS3 controller is really weird so it's tough to push them together : (
