Yeah honestly to this, there is nothing that Gief can do that would make Honda scared of doing nj Hp and thats why this is such a big deal. Nay sayers and people on the fence about this ultra…think about it, its a Zangief ultra…how can it not be good. It has possibility of hitting on the ground and on paper beats tons of crap. We will not even know until it comes out but for me right now, Zangief Ultra 2 is good enough for me even over all of the unconfirmed nerfs.
SSF4 is going to be a different game so who knows how all the nerfs will mesh with all of the other game changes. Its not going to be SSF4 nerfed Zangief in the SF4 world.
Just keep cool and wait, im sure Gief will still be just as good as he was. Not like Gief was ruling the tourney scene ever anyways.
