Hi, I'm Rab.
I like games.
Ever since I could remember, I've always wanted to have a career that somehow allowed me continue to be involved with them. For that reason and pretty much that reason alone, I'm going to college and learning about the different components and things that go into the videogame industry. I like to analyze videogames and see what makes them tick. If a game sucks, I want to understand exactly what makes it suck so hard. To this day I'm still not sure exactly how I want things to pan out, and I don't exactly know what it is I want to do within the game industry, but I know it's going to kick ass.

I like the consider myself a pretty well rounded person when it comes to taste in videogames. As long as the game has well thought out mechanics and fun gameplay, I'll atleast give it a shot.

According to EventHubs.com, Capcom's Christian Svensson has stated that the final roster for SSF4 has long been decided.

"Is there any chance of a character poll for Super Street Fighter 4?

Sven: To set expectations the game is rather far along and one of the FIRST things we did was sort out what the roster would be. While we're happy to accept additional feedback for future titles (if they should exist at some point in the future), the ship has pretty much sailed for Super Street Fighter 4."

This goes in hand with the recent statements made by Seth Killian that Capcom will not be having a Poll to decide on characters to be added, like they did for Vanilla SF4. Seth has also said that we should be hearing an announcement on more new characters before Christmas.
Check out the whole article here.

From that, it looks to me as though the original rumored characters may actually be true.
•From Street Fighter 2: Dee Jay and T. Hawk.
•From Street Fighter 3: Dudley, Ibuki and Makoto.
•From Street Fighter Alpha: Adon, Cody and Guy.
•Plus two completely new characters. (Juri and Hakan)

Looks like no Birdie :(

Also, check out this video walkthough with Seth Killian, posted on G4TV.com today. Alot of Deejays moves seem SUPER safe, particularly his dreadkicks and even a blocked ultra. Apparently his MAX OUT comes out even faster than Guiles Sonic Boom. He looks like he's gonna be really really beastly. He's pretty strong and can easily combo his ultra if he lands a jab on you.
