While it's certainly true that fighting games simply don't need much in the way of captivating storylines, they still need to exist, right? ...okay, maybe they don't, but at least Capcom is putting forth the effort in Street Fighter IV. Here's an inside look at the story and characters in the game, and you will get a glimpse of the hot chicks (Chun Li, Cammy and Sakura), each of whom have legs the size of tree trunks, along with other mainstays like M. Bison, Blanka, and Guile. This is the SF installment fans have been clamoring for, and it's fitting that it arrives in an era dubbed the "next generation" of gaming. This is one series that definitely needed a rejuvenation, and damn...Capcom delivered in a huge way.
