Point of clarification in my Witcher 2 review after talking to popo last night:

Having looked at side-by-side comparisons, I can definitely see the contrast with the two graphics engines used, but having played the first game on PC with max settings on a 24" screen and the second on an Xbox 360 on a 65" screen, the texture quality - what I mainly look at when I talk about graphics - looked pretty similar to me, especially considering the couple months between my playthrough of each game.

So I'm weak and bought yet another copy of Street Fighter II. It's unfortunately a bit bare bones. You've still got arcade mode and online fights. There's a two on one fight mode where you can partner up with another human or with the CPU to do a series of fights where you share an HP bar that refills a bit between fights, so it's more of an endurance match to make up for the fact that you can mix up for days. And then there's the motion control Way of the Hado mode which is pretty terrible. The accelerometers are apparently not as good as the Wii Motion Pro, so I was having it hurricane kick when I tried to fireball and vise versa. There's an infinite mode and a stage mode; the stage mode is kill X baddies to win. The hardest one has Bison as the final boss who teleports around and you're lucky to hit him with a fireball; for the most part your damage comes from dragon punching his stomp. It's super gimmicky and not worth your time. Control-wise the default controllers are ok; the button d-pad is better than the PS3 d-pad but obviously a fight stick would be better.

I like Soul Calibur a lot, but it doesn't feel precise. Virtua Fighter is my jam. And Last Bronx, but since that's ancient nobody but me will enjoy it.

You're heretics; Soul Calibur is the greatest 3D fighter of all time.
