Might as well start with a new thread for a new game.
First, it is so awesome that all the characters are unlocked from the get-go. Are there any secret locked characters? Perhaps the mysterious 15?
Other than that, my goal right now is to do every trial with every character. I'm actually amazed at how many of them I can do without any trouble, even some complicated ones.
Also, I've been playing on the XBL, and actually doing pretty well. I think I only actually won once or twice, but the competition isn't insane. The only time I got pissed was fighting, of course, my mortal enemy Zangief. All he did was spin over and over again, and I couldn't do shit! I even tried EX Head Stop, and the spin beat it! WTF! Did they jack up the double lariat or something?
