GameSpot's Street Fighter 4 Q&A - Familiar Faces

There was a time, back in the early 1990s, when fighting games ruled the arcade scene across America, Japan, and around the world. And if you had to go back in time to the starting point of the fighting craze, you'd stop at the sublimely balanced Street Fighter II, a game ahead of its time, one for which even the term "seminal" is an understatement. Fighting games may not be at the forefront of gaming the way they were in those halcyon years, but if any game is going to rejuvenate interest in this flagging genre, it's Street Fighter IV.

If the name alone didn't already whet your nostalgic whistle, consider this: Capcom has announced that the entire lineup of fighters from Street Fighter II -- including Chun Li, Zangief, E.

... I had my doubts at first, but some of the newer released pics of the characters, like Chun Li, looked pretty good.
I still think Ryu and Ken look ridiculous, though... and the new character looks really boring and uninteresting.

Could go either way as far as I'm concerned.

To be honest, I would be more excited about a HD Def Jam: Fight for New York remake, than I am about SF4.

The only question i have is...

Q: How the hell are you gonna make this playable with the crap 360 D-pad?

A: Thats a d-pad?!?
