Capcom on SFIV: Sagat and Seth are bit overpowered

Monday, 13th July 2009 18:36 GMT By Nathan Grayson


If Street Fighter IV characters Sagat and Seth have tiger uppercutted your pride into oblivion, feel free to collect the scraps. Speaking with VideoGamer, SFIV arcade assistant producer Ryota Niitsuma admitted that the two destroyers of your formerly flawless win-loss record are a bit too powerful.

“Yes, Seth and perhaps Sagat might have turned out a little bit stronger than we expected,” he said.

There is, however, a silver lining to this black cloud. Niitsuma explained:

“A good player of another character can always beat a good Sagat player or a good Seth player,” he said. “I don’t think it’s too out of proportion, but we do acknowledge that they turned out a bit more powerful than we expected.”

    So why not do a balancing patch?

    “So why not do a balancing patch?”

    I was going to say exactly the same. If there’s any genre that can benefit from patches, it’s fighting games.

    Yeah, Wipeout HD did that with the AI difficulty.

    exactly what i am thinking. that’s the beauty with gmaes these days. they can be patched very easily to resolve any balance issues. you don’t have to release a whole new game like in days gone by.

    this game is really frustrating because the controls are stiff. They must have did this because the xbox360 controller D-Pad is shit. Man it pisses me off that its hard to do ultra combos with Ken!!!!!!!!!!!! Damn you Capcom DIE!!!!!!!

    yea i’ll buy one but the game just doesn’t feel smooth anymore. I just want to get the trophies and put it away for good. I really can’t wait for Tekken 6 man
