I bought the original SF4 the day it was released on the PC (I’m not a console-guy) and I was thrilled! The community was extremely alive I would generally find a game in under a minute… at least for the first few months.
But things got stale… various glitches were not fixed, multiplayer problems plagued the game, GFWL was fucking horrible to use… some people even used hacks and trainers and the leaderboards were hacked as well. Most importantly, weaker characters (like Vega) were not buffed and God-tier Sagat remained overpowered.
Not a single patch was released to help balance any of the imbalances/glitches in the game whatsoever and as a PC user I was very disappointed (as a PC-RTS gamer I’m used to regular patches from developers).
About 9-12 months after it’s release the community was practically dead, my friends list of 50+ people had now became painfully inactive…
so although I’m excited about the release of SSF4 for PC I’m also concerned that Capcom will continue to completely neglect this community as they did with SF4 (for PC at least).
I’m interested to hear about how the PC community feels about it all?
