Tomorrow night I'm attending a Street Fighter IV media event, the "highlight" of which will be a tournament involving a whole bunch of games journalists battling it out. Trouble is - gulp! - I've not played Street Fighter IV. In fact - sorry, it gets worse - I've never ever, not even once, played any Street Fighter game at all. Help!
What advice would you give to a total Streeties novice? Which character should I choose? What strategy should I utilise? And, erm... which button does what?
