    The weekend deal is SFIV for $20.

    Head my words.
    This game is graphics intensive. Google 'Street Fighter IV benchmark' and run it before handing over the $20.

    Playing by yourself with a keyboard or shitty gamepad is FTL

    Unless you have 2 arcade sticks and a reasonable computer area to have 2 chairs :o

    Game is awesome on PC. If you don't have a stick why even bother playing?

    Because computers can't access the internet or use xbox gamepads, ps gamepads, or any thing with buttons on it to play, right?

    I have two arcade sticks but I need a better set up, it's a little crowded here. So maybe you are right that fighters are more ideal for consoles just because with consoles you already most likely have a decent seating arrangement. But if you have the same with your PC, then you wouldn't even be able to tell the difference between PC & consoles (except SF4 looks better on PCs :mamoru:)

    I bought it a couple weeks ago.
    There is a feature on it that allows you to connect to xbox live (which is free for PC's) and play single player. While you are playing single player it is searching the net looking for a match up. As soon as it finds someone for you to play it interupts your single player game for a two player game over the net.

    It's a really nice feature. No browsing for games, the PC does it for you.

    I kind of think $20 is a decent price for this game.
    When you are dissing the game consider the price.

    so the pc version plays against xbox users? The only thing that I was weary about is nobody having the pc version to play against.

    Nope, PC version only plays against other PC players, no cross platform play :hs:

    The biggest problem with the game for PC is finding people to play against and the lag. If you play someone with a shitty connection (which is just about everyone for some reason), the game is absolutely terrible, as your timing gets fucked right up. As a result, I kick everyone with terrible connections from my games before I start, which makes finding someone to play against a bit of a chore.
