Hakan is the best thing to happen to SF since...forever...
HERE I COME!
I've seen this trailer at least ten times by now... and every time, I'm trying to get over that anti-air ultra. It will be too effing scary to jump in on a Hakan with an ultra ready. And I still have NO idea what that "oil armor" move from the Hakan vs. Juri video does.
But hey, this is the right way to do a comedy character. He's wacky, but looks fun and effective. He's a medium-speed grappler with a slide, a slam, lots of command throws and such, and goodness knows how his pokes are. I'm stoked.
So from the Juri vs. Hakan vid I think he has the following moves-
2- normal command grab that sends opponents to the other
3- ground slide, with an optional follow-up
4- A running grab (if oiled-up he'll run faster)
5- Another command grab (In the vid he did a throw that did 5 hits, unless it's his normal throw..)
Gameplay vids from GDC can be watched here-
Hakan footage included (and in HD!)
My only question - why is his skin so red? Has he burned himself a ton or does he train in the open-air desert all day or something? Turks don't have skin colors so bold, I knew a Turkish girl in college.
This post at eventhubs has pretty good first-impressions info on the SF4 character changes. My boy Rufus got nerfed a little bit :/, but Chun-Li seems more dangerous than ever. Dudley is every bit as scary as I feared.

Abel's ONE weakness (footsies) fixed. And if his stamina has really been upped along with his damage output, we might be looking at one of the new Monsters in SSF4.Abel: Crouching Hard Kick is faster. His Ultra 2 can't combo but its fast and has armor if you hold the button, it looks to be very good.
"As a final message, Ono confirmed that Hakan is indeed the final Super Street Fighter IV character. However, he promised more announcements for the game in April and May."
I think that SSF4 is more complete than SF4. They basically went into development on it moments after the arcade release of SF4. My prediction is that SSF4 will last a liiittle longer than SF4 and we won't see the next expansion until the first half of 2012.
Hakan has to be the single greatest Street Fighter character of all time. I dare somebody to challenge that statement.
While I agree his design and overall feeling is pretty epic (in a fun type of way), I still have a VERY warm spot in my heart for Darun Mister and Cracker Jack. The very fact that Hakan's slippery Ultra II involves laying flat on his backin a similar fashion to Darun's Backbody Springboard makes me think the Ono design team may have a soft spot for the EX series.
Also, did anyone catch the Hakan trailer in the montage of World Warriors getting pwnt via floor slide + fourth wall? Guile had his shades during his slide! And Dudley's face was hilarious!
Guile's new taunt has him put shades on. I assume that's how the shades got there.
I'm just glad that none of Blanka's strengths or weaknesses changed. But it sucks that his new Ultra is lame.
Blanka is still my weakpoint when using Abel and Gief... and with Dudley I forsee the same problem so I have to start learning ways around him >.<.
My history with Blanka is weird. I never really used him in Super 2T or in the Alpha games, where my main characters were Vega (claw), Bison (dictator), and Cammy. However, a few years ago I tried him out in Capcom vs. SNK 2 and liked him, then tried him some more with SF4 and liked him even more. Now he's probably my main character, and a LOT of people really don't like fighting against him. Blanka's fun.
