Wasted Seconds Wasting your precious time since 2009.

Cammy is coming to Street Fighter 4 on your favorite iDevice via a free update.

I was a little skeptical of this game when it was initially released, mostly due to the fact you have no choice but to use the touch screen controls. And when not done right, it’s devastating. But Capcom definitely pulled through with this release providing a great version of SF4 for on the go. Obviously, with only 8 characters and a large loss of buttons (both literally and physically) its’ not going to make the hard core people happy. And trust me, I’ve seen my fair share of people bitching about this release. Some people even bitching … even though they haven’t even PLAYED it. Go figure there.

But I ended up dropping the money on it the day it came out, and I’m thoroughly impressed by it. It controls wonderfully with great graphics and sound … and while it’s definitely not a true Street Fighter experience, what are you expecting from a handheld.

Anyway, eventually, Capcom is going to be providing a free update to this adding in Cammy. While I’m not a huge Cammy fan, it’s definitely kind of surprising to see them even bothering to update this thing. Let alone making it free.

Now if only they would add some other little things to it that I won’t mention because of all the people who whine about spoilers. I’ll just say that this game basically works as a playable advertisement for Super Street Fighter 4 and leave it at that. Regardless of that, it’s well worth the money and if you haven’t checked it out you really should.

Maybe they’ll add in online multiplayer sometime. Now that would definitely rock. Then I could get my ass handed to me on my iPod Touch and the Playstation 3 at the same time.

Here’s a nifty little video showing Cammy in action courtesy of TouchArcade.

A quick first impression of Street Fighter IV for the iPhone/iPod Touch

Been running through the Dojo part of it where it tells you how to do commands and things of that nature. And so far from what I've played, the time that they put into the touch controls really shows because this thing controls like a dream. It's really surprised me on how well it plays. Which is pretty damn important for a fighting game.

There's a little bit of a learning curve to it because it seems to default to the medium attacks then you choose different directions to do fierce attack and light attacks and the like. But I've been pulling off special moves like they're nothing. Including those fucked up "down forward, down forward + attack" super moves.
