Man... I didn't even want this game till yesterday. I used to love fighting games, but didn't play any for a while after Soul Calibur II. I got SSFIIT HD Remix and thought it was cool, but I sucked at it. I have played Marvel vs. Capcom 2 and it didn't seem as good as it was on the Dreamcast in single player., but was great in multiplayer. Then I played the demo of MvC2 against a friend yesterday and it got me in a fighting game mood.

What's tempting me to buy this most is that I can get it for $40 at Amazon and then get a $10 credit. I can use that to get half off a 1600 points card and get Marvel vs. Capcom 2. I just wish there was a demo for SFIV that I could try.

Just got back into the swing of things with SFIV after almost a year off. I'm pretty terrible at the game, but if anyone would like someone to play with, hit up my GT: TristanGDP

You should really just buy Marvel vs Capcom 2 when it's on sale for 560 points. But you've missed it twice, so not sure if there will be another chance...

Just picked this up yesterday at a local shop here in So.Cal

EPIC is all I can say, I'm really impressed with the improvements I've seen so far. Having a blast with the new cast as well.

Man, thanks for the heads up, I will hit up K-Mart tomorrow.

Was it just out in the open with all the other games?

I decided to wait on the points, anyway. But I just checked... MvC2 was never on sale for 560 points. It only went on sale once, 2 months ago, for 800 points.

Yep this is when I got it as well. Since I decided to switch my fighting gaming from PS3 to 360, I got it at that price figuring it was never going to be that cheap again.

I looked at the deals of the week, and it was never on there. Was it some 24 hour holiday sale?

Can someone answer these 2 questions...

1. Will i have to unlock the 10 color options again in SSFIV?

2. Will any of the titles/icons carry over from SFIV? Are they the same from SFIV, with the addition of new character titles?

1. Yes.

2. No.

2.5. I didn't pay enough attention to SFIV to know, sorry. The few I've unlocked seem familiar.

It was one of the 24-hour deals they did from Dec. 18-31.
http://www.majornels...g-schedule.aspx

There was an ad on the dashboard that had a lockbox on each date and then on that date the box opened up and the deal was revealed for that day. I got pissed off because 1 week after I bought the 3 Fallout 3 DLC's I didn't own yet all the Fallout DLC went 1/2 price.

To unlock the colors you just pick the characters and play. It doesn't take very long, probably after picking someone 20-30 times or so and all there taunts and colors will be unlocked. They can be unlocked in versus mode too, so if you play locally you can get everything unlocked really quickly.

Wow thats a lot better than having to beat challenges. Thanks for the info. Cant wait till tuesday!

Is there any word on when the DLC costumes will be out for purchase? Last time they had a schedule already set for the first games DLC outfits before the game was released.

I haven't seen a schedule but I hope it's soon, I want my mecha Gief! The only challenges in this game are the trials, and they are MUCH easier in this one compared to the vanilla version. They don't have as many ridiculous links for some of the characters, usually just one or maybe 2 difficult ones. Some have some difficult ones but I haven't had many issues yet. Still have ELF's hardest one though, which I suck at.

Glad to hear the trials are more manageable. I hated those - wayyyy too complex and precise for my tastes.

Amazon has the 360 version listed at 36.99 again.

Also there is already a costume pack up for 320 points.

Ugly, like you.

Remember, if you're looking for other CAGs to play with when this comes out, add the gamertag in my friend's list and use the friend of friend feature to find people!

Awesome, looks like I save $3, debating if I should email amazon about it or let their price guarantee thing take care of it. 1 more day!
