Kazuya
Nina

I'm pretty sure Bob is REALLY popular in japan. I see him alot of promotions for the game.
Anyways i'm really liking how the tekken characters look and play on a 2D play. You can really tell that Capcom put alot of time with them with how flashy and unique their combos are.
Also anyone notice how the throws other than the command grabs are cinematics? Thats is a really cool touch to the game.
All of the trailers have me REALLY hype for the game. Can't wait till they release more footage.

Perhaps but I really hope Paul is in it since Jinn should be in for sure, Kuma might be kind of interesting on SF4 engine too lol

Well, couple of things:

-He's the only character that has remained top tier since debut ;P
-He has a lot of great options with which to capitalize on
-Bob > Rufus for the "American champ that hates Ken" character
-He's a new char

Also, for those who didn't watch the interview, Ono said that he and the dev team weren't looking for rivalries, but were instead looking for "which characters naturally paired up?"

I'd say Cammy pairs up with Chun since Guile is already being dated by Abel. Not sure who pairs with Bob.

I'm hoping for Sakura-Karin, Makoto-Ibuki, as well as some new chars man (just not Hugo-Rolento. I'm getting so tired of Rolento fans crying). Tekken...eh, as long as they don't forget Bryan Fury.

BIONIC...EVERYTHIIIIIIING!

I'm calling BS; Marduk and Bob aren't even mentioned, and King is listed as having "no model", despite having gameplay everywhere?

Why are there 2 Laws in the game? That makes no sense. And speaking of making no sense, why would Vega (claw) be in the game but not boxer or Sagat, both of whom are debatably more popular?

They say that the next trailer will be Paul and Ken, Chun-Li and Jun. Too bad they're only half-right.

Yeah...not feelin this one...

Skull_Knight
04-13-2011, 04:18 PM
from what im assuming will be in the game will be like paul/kuma, Sakura/karin, Asuka/Lili, Dragonuv Rolento, Akuma/Heihachi, and maybe something like Vega/Yoshi, Urien/Bryan and Cammy or Viper/ Anna

Idk im just guessing based on what characters are and their comparisions to the other game. The Asuka/Lili and Sakura/Karin rivalry seems like it will most likely be put in and all of those characters would be very interesting to see in the game's engine.

Shinji Mimura
04-13-2011, 06:14 PM
Hence my "supposed".

Well, so far the leaks have been pretty good.

Anyways, I took the time to do some logical pairings since Ono said they were looking more for who pairs, not who are rivals necessarily. I came up with a few:

Blanka/Dan
Sakura/Karin
Guy/Cody
Sagat/Adon
Dictator/Seth or Akuma
Chun-Li/Gen or Cammy
Ibuki/Makoto

Heihachi/Jin
Paul/Law
Lars/Alisa or Zafina
Asuka/Lili
Julia/Ganryu
Dragunov/Raven
Bryan/Yoshimitsu
Xiaoyu/Panda
Lei/Feng

Not sure who Bob's "pair" would be, but I'm overall glad they picked him over Rufus.

I really am hoping that one character's inclusion means one's exclusion. As in, many have speculated that the King/Marduk duo mean that the Zangief/Fuerte duo won't be in the game. As such, I hope that's true. Fei long versus Law, Rufus v Bob, Bruce v Sagat, all stupid.

Mostly looking forward to Karin or Makoto from SF, Julia and Bryan from TK.

04-14-2011, 01:55 PM
well, Ono DID say there'd be a "ton" of characters, and that if you think a character won't make it, you're likely second-guessing yourself.

I honestly feel that no fighting game should have a roster larger than Marvel 3, and similar to Marvel 3, I don't really want too many similar characters. That is, now that we have Nina, we don't need Anna (even though I love her so). If we get Steve, we don't need Dudley (or vice-versa).

but whatever. Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade proved a point about Ono: he is not opposed to just throw every fricken character in a game that can be thrown in, so yeah, I won't be surprised if we do wind up getting Gief, Fuerte, Honda, King, Marduk, and Ganryu all in the same game.

Ono already said no Kuma.

HypeMan!
04-14-2011, 02:43 PM
I think its a fair bet that characters that directly oppose each other will be in it, ie Steve vs Dudley or Honda vs Ganryu.

Where did Ono say no Kuma? He's a huge fan favorite and he said count no one out. Besides, not having Zangief v Kuma would just be silly.

Agreed wholeheartedly, I just didn't say Balrog because Balrog plays nothing like Steve.

Yeah, sorta hopin' the 4 Shadoloo guys make it in, but if not, definitely gotta have Dictator; the guy totally got screwed over by Akuma for Marvel 3.

One of the Captivate interviews, IIRC - he said count no one out but specifically mentioned no Kuma. I may have read that wrong.

HypeMan!
04-15-2011, 02:08 PM
I feel like that would have popped up somewhere, cause people are assuming that Kuma is already in when he said that anyone is possible and Tekken is known for some of the weirder characters like animals.

Now that Sagat has been spoiled, the "roster leak" is looking even more false due to yet another character not appearing on their list...

Added Cammy and Sagat to the list (yay for Bob Sagat jokes). Really interested in seeing what types of extended combos can be done with them given the new partner switch button, and also seeing if any of their moves have been changed like Ken's Tatsumaki.

Also wondering how people overcome the volly of Tiger Spam Sagat will inevitably produce.

All I know is, man, I watched all the E3 trailers as well as the Seth Killian demo, and yeah, the game is absolute legit. Also glad mah girl Julia, while low on health, has so many Yun and Yang moves but doen't appear to be nearly as broken :)

Kratos in SC I was skeptical. Kratos in MK doesn't jar that much against the franchise. Dante in SMT:Nocturne was actually a :):):):)ing good decision because I'd dare say it kickstarted the interest for the series in NA.

What does Cole bring to SFxT? An interesting character? After seeing the footage, :):):):) no. That tornado is a blight upon the game.

Something pretty cool flavor-wise is that we have win quotes exclusive to the loser of the second round, rather than the generic stuff we often get. Each character has one win quote against each character.

It's 'sim. The way they've been releasing the trailers, it can't be anyone but him. When they released the Cammy "teaser", it was to follow the fact that Chun-Li didn't have a partner in the game yet. Same for the Bob/Julia team. Keep in mind the characters are supposed to be teamed up "in-storyline" (we all know how much this is bollocks, but still), which eliminates Sean, Dee Jay and Adon since Sagat wouldn't team with them, only Dhalsim is left, and well, they can always go the UDON comics route if they really want to explain it away.

Not only that, but am I the only one who is thinking that the last picture we see is of the lotus position?

Me, I'm more scared of what he'll be able to do at range. Zoning may be hard, but I'm guessing you'll be able to magic series from way too far.

Me, I'm more scared of what he'll be able to do at range. Zoning may be hard, but I'm guessing you'll be able to magic series from way too far.

Couple of things

1. I don't see why Bob and Julia would team-up. Bob wants to beat larger foes than he, which is why he bulked up. Julia wants to rejuvenate the forest. The only partners I can think of for her are T Hawk, Jun, or Ganryu (or E Honda since he looks like Ganryu).

2. I don't think Dhalsim is going to be paired with Sagat for any reason whatsoever, nor do I think each trailer relates to the batch before it. Sagat may not have a partner, but for 1, he already partners with Ryu, and 2, Adon could pair with him since Sagat was formerly his teacher, or if they through Bruce Irvine into the mix, well.

3. If Dhalsim is to be thrown in with somebody I'd honestly think it to be Zafina (who better pairs with Rose). Who does Dhalsim honestly team with from Street Fighter?

4. I was thinking the same, and honestly, I don't think he has magic series on his long-range standing pokes. If that's the case...good God :/

First thing they said was "No inter-company match-ups. The X is because they hate each other." So... that ain't going to happen. Sure, we can pick (and likely will) from every character on the roster. Just that the presentations will have Capcom teams and Namco teams. Like, the first character teasers we had were for Cammy, Sagat, Julia and Hwaorang. From the character select screen, you had Ryu and Ken, followed by Guile and Abel, followed by Chun-Li and Cammy (Teaser 1) and then Sagat (Teaser 2), alone. On the Tekken side, same thing : Kazuya/Nina, King/Marduk, Bob/Julia (Teaser 3) and Hwaorang (Teaser 4) alone.

Again, that may not be the case, but from what they've done so far, it is. And Sagat/Dhalsim makes more sense than Sagat/Adon, seeing as Adon wants to pretty much end Sagat for getting his ass kicked by Ryu. He wouldn't team with Sagat even if his life depended on it.


2. I don't think Dhalsim is going to be paired with Sagat for any reason whatsoever, nor do I think each trailer relates to the batch before it. Sagat may not have a partner, but for 1, he already partners with Ryu, and 2, Adon could pair with him since Sagat was formerly his teacher, or if they through Bruce Irvine into the mix, well.
Again, no inter-company crossover for the videos. They're beating up each other and that's what they'll show. Note that the pairings may not always make sense (Bob with Julia, what?) and what I've heard as speculation has Hwaorang teaming with Steve Fox. What the :):):):)?


4. I was thinking the same, and honestly, I don't think he has magic series on his long-range standing pokes. If that's the case...good God :/

Yeah, but he won't be able to follow up after that, when I think about it.

That being said, I'm probably the only one who wants Hugo/Rolento in.

Shinji Mimura
07-08-2011, 11:12 PM
I'm thinking Steve will pair with Paul, unless Law makes it into the game.

And yeah, I'm really thinking Julia's partner is later on in the game. Sadly, her options are limited.

I still can't think of a Dhalsim partner on the SF side. Maybe Rose?

Yah, Haggar is only there as a cameo. No way he's in.

Yoshi with Raven? I don't know... although it's likely. Both ninjas.

Also, Steve Fox with Hwoarang isn't that farfetched considering that Steve partnered with Paul/Law to further his training.

If Sodom is in the game, so is Rolento. And technically they'd be Street Fighter Alpha reps, not FF.

I'm okay with a ninja (Raven) having a projectile. Besides what Halbard said, Raven's Tekken art has him holding kunais. Kinda stupid to never use them. Whatever the case is, I'm not so sure how often he will be using them anyways :|

In 3S, Elena travels the world and makes friends with both, but Ibuki/Makoto is pretty much the rivalry.

Either that or I've been reading too much femmeslash fanfiction. In the very early 2000's.

Shinji Mimura
08-18-2011, 02:39 PM
Well, Elena's rivals only include Hugo and Makoto, so it doesn't really seem likely that it's her (even thoug she was a foreign exchange student in Japan). Ibuki's rivals (over the course of the games) have been Sakura, Guy, Oro, and Makoto, so yeah, I'm still going with Makoto, though Oro would be...interesting.

not being bias or anything but how could you be hype for this game, they are having 2 versions, one street fighter 4 version and the other tekken 6. I love both street fighter and tekken but they are just recycling the sames games, they should of made a new system that blends the street fighter gameplay and tekken gameplay.

That's exactly what SFxT is doing. Ono himself said in an interview that's what they were doing, because just making Tekken characters "street fighter-y" and sticking them in there wouldn't have worked. What would be the point then. He said that they built the combat system from the ground up. As far as SF4 version and T6 version, that's only because they are using those rendering engines and art styles.

He said that they built the combat system from the ground up. As far as SF4 version and T6 version, that's only because they are using those rendering engines and art styles.
Simply put, no matter WHO made the game, someone was going to complain.

Doing this, both Capcom and Namco have a chance at profit as well as a good opportunity to reinvent characters that weren't familiar to them. For example, Harada said that Ryu would be getting a whole lot more normals in TxSF and that he would keep his hadouken. I wouldn't be surprised if the SRK or the Tatsu became normals that you could chain into from some punches and kicks here and there.

but the thing is, if I what to play street fighter 4, i would play SF4, and same with Tekken 6, I would like a new system for this crossover. I know its hard to mix SF with tekken but they did it with MVC3 making it high jumps, combos and powerful characters.

HypeMan!
08-19-2011, 12:42 AM
Again. They are making a new system. They are adding juggling, tag cancels, a unique control system option for Tekken characters. Like I said, Ono said that they designed the system from the ground up encorperating both properties into one in a new and unique way.

As for your example, MvC3 is really just the capcom fighting game design on steroids. SFxT is very unique and is being built from the ground up.

Shinji Mimura
08-19-2011, 02:05 AM
Here's how I know SFxT isn't the same as SF4:

I actually want to play it.

SF is a slower, waiting-man's game, whereas Marvel/Tekken is very in your face with attacking non-stop. SFxT is right in the middle, exactly where I want my fighting games to be.

well I just don't like it, I'm not saying you should not buy it, I'm just telling my opinion on it and yes I know they did add some tekken elements to SFxT but it still feel like a SF4 with tekken characters.

I found the cinematic trailer to be very bad, with the water effects and the bad pop music, do you agree?

Nah. Love the cinematic trailers. Very uplifting and hype-filled. The way I see it:

-Two chars
-Tag out
-Tag cancel (similar to FADC sure but in a much different way)
-Alpha counter (with launcher)
-Cross Rush mechanic
-Marvel-style super arts
-Whiffing normals builds meter (for now)
-Combos that go on for pretty long, not as long as Marvel, way longer than SF4
-Tekken chars

I'm honestly thinking the only reason you think it's SF4 is because the art is the same. If these were 2D hand-drawn sprites, the ONLY thing SFxT and SF4 would have in common would be EX moves, and it's not like this game is like 3S, which also has EX moves.

With all the reasons listed above, and the fact that I think this looks fun, I just can't agree this is SF4 except when it comes to the art, which I agree is the same. The thing is, that's nothing new for Capcom. Look at the Marvel series. We never saw new art til Marvel 3...so....yeah...

Honestly, neither are really that interesting. Elena is supposed to be a "capoeira" fighter, but as with most SF "martial artists", I feel she kinda fails at what she was intended to be. Also, she's an "African" princess, yet neither she nor her family look African. Why is she in Japan, then in Europe later? Who knows.

Makoto isn't much better, simply trying to support a dojo. The reason why Makoto was one of the select few to make it into SSF4 is because of the impact she had in 3S and because her 6 extra "command, ground normals" made her one of the more unique ones.

Not hating, just really confused as to why Elena has a fanbase. Like, the Urien fanbase? I get them. The Rolento one? Them too. But Elena? Eh...Elena fans just remind me of us Necro fans, except more whiney /:

Also I definitely don't hate Final Fight. I just...I'm pretty sure we're going to see 6 FF chars, and with a roster that is limited due to it being divided in half, I really want all those slots to be spent wisely. I definitely respect that they are bringing back older chars that didn't make it into AE, and a lot of the FF chars have a rich SF history, but...meh...

Whatever the case is, I thought Rolento was oodles of fun in A2, so I'm sure he'll be quite interesting in this game as well.

Oh, and new Char trailers next week :3

Oh I completely agree. When the game was first announced, I figured he would be paired with Hugo, and thought that his style was likely to add as much CvS2ness to the game as he could.

Not expecting Drag to make it into the game, which is sad, but I'm glad they're taking the approach to have "team mates" rather than "Bob vs Rufus, Bruce vs Sagat" kinds of matchings that people were first talking about.

Also, have you seen the spoil list from Lupinko? The new one, that has so far proven itself accurate? I've never been one for spoilers, but it's looking pretty official, and if it is, I'm kinda disappointed in the adding of Zangief to this game.

Well, when I saw King and Marduk, I was like "hmm...guess Zangief's not gonna be in this one. Too many wrestlers would be bleh." Then Hugo was confirmed, and I was like, "yeah, definitely no Zangief."

Truly, I'm just curious as to how he'd transition. In spite of his size, Hugo seems to be able to get around the stage quite well, as do King and Marduk. Zangief...he's just kinda a "green hand SPD, lather rinse repeat" kinda guy.

Exactly - they'll need to severely nerf the range on Paradise Hold if they want to give it SPD damage, although if they kept the A3 damage I certainly wouldn't mind. If she is indeed in there I have zero idea who I'm going to end up playing. I'm going to try and main Paul if he's in there, but man.

True but they're not going to be drastically different. Perhaps for the characters we haven't seen in a while, yes but anyone who's been in SFIV shouldn't play all that much differently beyond the aggressive slant of the game.

I doubt Guile is going to be Dhalsim stretching all over the places, and Ryu will probably keep his kick into hadouken combo, but past the obvious, I won't expect anything.

Not sure I agree with that, ONLY because Heihachi HAS to be Kuma's partner. I mean...I guess Paul could be his partner, but their rivalry isn't exactly friendly, and I don't know who else Heihachi'd pair with.

Well, Final Fight actually depicted Mad Gear as a gang that unified pretty much every single undesirable in modern society, whether they did criminal activities or not (which, well, they mostly did). Rolento is more of an ineffectual villain than anything. Utopia through superior soldiers and firepower.

However, he doesn't want to do it via brainwashing. Eh, I don't know. Rolento looks like he's being portrayed as a cloud cuckoolander with grenades. I wouldn't be surprised if his goals were a lot more noble in this one than before.

Trailer 1 : Juri, Dan, C.Viper - We know Dan has been Xed out already. Between Juri and C.Viper, I think it's going to be Juri. If C.Viper shows up, it's probably going to be as an Edit character.

So perhaps Dan's hair, Viper's gloves are a reference to something. Now, what on earth Mech Zangief's belt or Dee Jay's dreads have to do with anything is beyond me, because Jack doesn't have much hair at all, or a belt worth mentioning, neither does Feng.

We'll see. The biggest concern I can think of is tournaments. Picking 5 gems out of at least a 100 will only make the button-check/set-up even longer.

Also, DLC gems? Pre-order gems? Yeah, uh, no. Not in something you want to make sure is competitive. The only way I could see this fly is if they were early access to those gems.

Shinji Mimura
10-21-2011, 01:31 PM
1 - Doubtful. Just like a Marvel player knows their character's spot on the selection screen, the color, assist, and placing they'd like, I'm sure people will know where their gems are, what order the gems go in, etc.

2 - I'm pretty sure DLC gems are gonna work like Shuma and Jill; most every GOOD tournament should have them, but there will be those who don't, so you have to take into account those people.

so they're considering removing Pandora mode since it is "weak-sauce."

I say keep it in. I mean, yes, it really does need a longer time duration to be usable, but as is, it's an extremely last-ditch effort to win the game when all is against you.

Hatman
11-01-2011, 10:04 AM
I had a discussion with a friend who's more vocal than bright when it comes to debating. He thinks it should be out because, well, why put it in if it's not going to do much of anything and there's already too much stuff going on.

I'd rather keep it in. It's not a comeback mechanic, it's a gamble mechanic. It's pretty much a "I will style on you and now I have the power to do it in the next 8 seconds." Fortunately, you cannot cancel into Pandora or else it would be stupid as hell.

HypeMan!
11-01-2011, 03:10 PM
As of right now, it just looks like there isn't a good way to capitalize on the gamble. Its more a suicide as it stands now. The fireball punish stuff seems decent but overly situational. Just as it stands, activating pandora is less a good idea and more a throw in the towel, lets throw crap against the wall and see if something sticks.

Where did you hear they were thinking about dropping the system? Pandora seems pretty corner stone to the game at least from a narrative end (for what thats worth).

Hatman
11-01-2011, 04:37 PM
They can stick with it on the narrative end. It doesn't mean that they cannot take it out since it's still the major motivation for most of the characters (Poison only goes because HEY LOOK MEDIA and she's an attention whore and wherever Poison goes, Hugo follows).

HypeMan!
11-01-2011, 08:03 PM
I guess. I think I would like to see it kept but just right now its a suicide move. And honestly, I can't think about anything though that wouldn't be XFC 2.0. I'm just worried about them shoving a number of gimmicky systems into the game. The 4 player co-op seems okay, though I think MK did it better, and 1 player controlling 2 characters just seems cumbersome. Personally though, I really like the gem system, both in form and function though. I can see the argument against it with tournaments but I really love the idea of customizing one's character more to their play style.

Hatman
11-02-2011, 08:59 AM
Also, Seth Killian mentioned that it's not the final form of Pandora and they're still playing with it (in an interview with Destructoid). If it doesn't work out, he would rather cut it but that's still in the hand of the actual developers (as in not him, he's a consultant, not a developer).

So far, I haven't seen anything related to the gem system that is extremely reprehensible more than the amount of time you have to button check.

EDIT : We got something.

"There's also time selection involved with the gems. Is it going to take too long for a tournament to effectively run it with the gem selection?

We're trying to take that into account and trying to work with first-party on different ways you might be able to carry your gems around with you as a potential loadout. We're exploring all the possibilities and trying to keep that in mind."

HypeMan!
11-02-2011, 06:44 PM
Exportable layouts to flash USB drive. Export your loadouts and carry them with you. It into a port and have an option for 'Chose from drive' pack a special SFxT branded USB drive with the collectors edition or just sell it separate. People can just walk up with their layouts on their key chains. Its an idea.

Personally, I find the hypothetical "gem picking" to be no more tedious than selecting the color and assist of your Marvel character.

HypeMan!
11-03-2011, 07:50 AM
Save with color its 1 of the 6 buttons you press and Assists you have 3 to chose from for each character, where as you have to flip through dozens of gems potentially.

Hatman
11-03-2011, 11:36 AM
Personally, I find the hypothetical "gem picking" to be no more tedious than selecting the color and assist of your Marvel character.

Except for the fact that you have hundreds of them and have 5 to pick IN ADDITION to your team/color. Add to that button checks (because you know they won't go the 3SOE route).

Also, USB drives, I doubt - most tournaments are ran under wired controllers only route. Meaning you need those USB ports and no console has enough (XBox360 has 3 with 2 in front and one in the back, generally reserved for a wireless adapter and the PS3 has a grand total of 2.) You need at least 4 to do this.

Someone brought up the possibility of a password selecting the gems for you.

Not so much confirmed for unplayable but extremely unlikely that he's in. Mech Zangief is in the background of a stage, after all. To be honest, there's only one man I want to be in and the fact that they're taking their sweet :):):):)ing time to reveal new characters does not inspire confidence in me.

So Asuka, Dictator, and Xiaoyu have been spoiled. Hopefully we'll see those October spoilers now (Boxer, Claw, Juri).

Pretty certain Juri is with Dictator and Jin is with Xiaoyu. I'm really wondering how Dictator will play in this game since, as addressed in the SF4 thread, all he ever did was one of his standing kicks followed by Double Knee Press. Since Ryu got his Jodan Sokuto Geri, I wonder if Dictator will get his Marvel 2 Psycho Field (Psycho Ball is lame).

Also, Australia doing that thing where they actually have pro players test :):):):) out and fight :):):):). Balrog with that OMFG damage. Seriously, Balrog + ANY amount of meter = 40-50 off one combo, as opposed to Guile who hits like a wet paper bag.

Assuming you mean Guile, I don't honestly know. Guile's a weird character; he's a buff army guy with quite a bit of options, but it seems likely they designed him particularly to be a defensive, I-play-with-my-back-to-the-wall-purposefully sort of character. Now...while there aren't exactly combovids goin around, Melbourne's "Shadowloo" video has many Guile-Abel/Abel-Guile combos, and Guile is just not doing satisfactory damage. That makes sense, given his design, but it's like...I don't foresee Guile being the huge obstacle he was in Super in this game, whereas Boxer looks even more vicious than he already was.

Also, very interesting that Killian feels "Vega is the best out of the three SF reveals: Vega, Balrog, and Juri." That may very well be, but I mean...Vega hasn't been good because of CVS2, and my understanding of that was because of A-groove...

The thing with Guile is that yes, his Super damage was way too high. Guile is really just there to go "You ain't doing this." His command normals allow him to control the field of battle pretty well in front of him and the Sonic Boom remains one of the best projectiles ever. I don't know if he'll pair well with Paul but that's the first team I'm willing to try because Paul will likely hit like a mack truck so switching into Guile would be more about controlling space and with the launch, go with Paul, end my combo with a EX Phoenix Smasher (causes Wall Bounce), etc.


Also, very interesting that Killian feels "Vega is the best out of the three SF reveals: Vega, Balrog, and Juri." That may very well be, but I mean...Vega hasn't been good because of CVS2, and my understanding of that was because of A-groove...
Simply put, since the juggling and combo rules are so loose, he has much more opportunities than in SF to continue for damage.

Anyone not named Chun was ass in 3S. Urien, Makoto, Yun and Yang were good. Even Ken fell off the radar at one point. Elena wasn't that low (that tier is reserved to Sean, Twelve and Q) but she was lower on the totem pole than those characters.

She's very interesting to play and I can't wait to see how she transitions.

I was enjoying Cross Assault until I saw Pandora Elimination. Great, so instead of, you know, eliminating people because they lost, they want to keep the show "fair" by axing-off a player just to keep the ratios even. That's BS; team Tekken should just level up their game, and when they won the trial challenge, they should have been able to pick 1 from each team to play for elimination. Otherwise, if they did pandora just to keep ratios the same, why did they even have the trial challenge? Wouldn't team street fighter, had they won, still have to axe one of their own?

Eh, whatever the case was, both TFA Hornet and Dr Sub were looking EXTREMELY scrubby tonight, so I'm really hoping they level up, especially Hornet since he apparently got on the show for being A. the #1 Sakura on XBL and B. for being a pad player *shrug*

Each team challenge allows the winning team to choose either an advantage for their team or a disadvantage for their opponents.

Advantages are :
- An extra set-up in order to practice in the regular times.
- An extra practice session lasting 4 hours.

Disadvantages are :
- Removing a set-up from the opposing team.
- Banning 5 characters from tomorrow's team challenge (or something to that extent - I know it's banning 5 characters).

First day, Valle took away a console from Team Tekken due to winning, and Aris got it back on the second day for winning the trial challenge.

Shinji Mimura
02-25-2012, 12:13 PM
Ah, thanks for that.

So, man, this game is looking very balanced. If there's one thing I've seen so far, it's that the game's grapplers seem to be extraordinarily powerful, which is interesting given that they're normally terrible in Marvel, mid-ish tier in SF games, yeah in SFxT, what I call the middle ground between Marvel and SF, they are seeming to be just amazing!

For those who haven't been keeping up, a player's limbs will extend first before the actual hit, meaning that said limbs can be grabbed. In short, there are no kara throws in this game because opponents will kara themselves INTO a throw.

So, yeah, grapplers looking mad broken, Hugo and 'gief especially.

But yeah, most characters seem to be dealing the damage you think they will, and with friggin everybody having ground bounce, wall bounce, etc, seems pretty even.

Also, Ogre = Oni, which means he'll probably be banned :/

Oh yeah, I'm not sleeping on the Tekken cast; I honestly think they are better (collectively) than the SF characters.

Having mentioned earlier that this game is a bit of a half-step between SF and Marvel, I think characters like Guile and Sagat are really not going to be very good, and the characters that needed the speed, such as Balrog, Juri, Vega, they're going to be great.

But yeah, the Tekken characters are just so awesome. I'm loving Julia, with the way she Wind Rolls into a ton of different mix-ups, and how like half of her moves are shared by Yun and Yang.

I'm planning on Jin, Ogre, Kaz, Able, Hugo and Mega Man in some combination. Who's everyone else intending to use.

Eh, I wouldn't say Kaz/Hei are like Ryu/Ken at all, rather, it just seems, at this day -1 that they have the same BnBs throughout. Or that's just because nobody knows other combos. It could most certainly be either one, 50/50
In the same way that day 1 Ryu/Ken are gonna look similar.

So, what is to be learned about Kuma from this video?

He probably deals THE most damage in the game. Easy 450 damage off 1 meter? The fu...

Also, fun fact about Ogre: he stole Super-Skrull's meteor smash. Both input and screen location.

Yeah, his launching knee is pretty much the new foot dive :/

Some interesting health nerfs on the Street Fighter side:

Cammy -50 (900), Juri -50 (900), Vega -50 (950), and LOLGUILELOL -50 (950)

Why in the hell is Guile at 950? Srsly Guile dying in two combos is not cool.

I thought of another decent team. Asuka/Abel. Anyone wanting to confirm?

IIRC she's more of an aikido character in Tekken. In here, I have no freaking clue.

She uses this

Kazama-Style Self Defence, is a fighting style created and primarely used by the Kazama family. The fighting style encorporates traditional Japanese martial arts such as Aiki-Jujitsu or Daito-ryu Aiki-jujutsu (primarily), Aikido, Judo, and Karate.

Joining the party late here.

People were talking about abel, I was a pretty dedicated abel throughout SF4 and its incarnations and I will say right here, I think this Abel is nottt very good. I'll bulletpoint it to make it simple.

* His dash got nerfed and as a rushdown character with a bad dash that keys his offense, it is not a good thing.
* His command throw is still great, but its nothing the other grapplers don't have in this game.
*His anti-airgrab is still TERRIBLE in any situation but combos, this is made even more obvious by how incredibly good marduks anti-airgrab is.
*His Dash Cancel Move(The hold-down charge special to super move) is a back to forward charge move, this means its very difficult to do Armor Absorb dash cancel shenanigans like many of the other grapplers can, and in general is actually a really big deal, having to charge instead of command fast dash cancel REALLY hurts him.
*His roll is much harder to use for 50/50's because if they roll forward on wakeup, your roll 50/50 is literally ruined. This is a HUGE part of his sf4 offense and its basically completely gone now.

Abel I just think is going to be the worst of the grapplers by a significant amount. There is very little he does in this game better then marduk, and they do many of the same things.

Personally, I'm using Julia/Cammy. Cammy is much easier to use in this game then the very execution heavy SF4 counterpart and the system is quite kind to her normals. Julia is my favorite tekken character and i'm learning her on the fly atm, she has some easy(therefore consistant) bread and butters by herself, and she has pretty solid damage, along with some of the sickest dashes in the entire game. A lot of her "unique" chains seem pretty useless(any of them that go Light P-Light P in particular) but the ones that are good(Backmedium to anything, mountain crusher) are very good.

I decided to dump Guile. Even with Charge Partitioning, he's just not worth playing. You NEED a meterbuilding heavy loadout for him and if you don't have time to set-up your gems (I was playing at a local hangout that had the game loaded on 360) he's just too bad right out of the gate.

I'm not even sure I'll keep Paul but Paul has two things on Guile - Combos and actual damage. Knock them into the air, Hammer of the Gods for the ground bounce, c.MP into whatever is your ender of choice. Mortar Punch is surprisingly decent, Mountain Raze is a decent enough fireball punish and Sway is just godlike. Paul is a good anchor but I might need someone to set it up.

I also played Steve, Zangief and Poison. I'm liking all three so far. If I had more time with Steve I think he'd be the perfect character for me. Stances aplenty, and it looks like a counter move. (QCB + K)

I've settled into Vega/King for the moment, liking that team so hard right now. My PSN is Javelin_C if anyone is looking for more UFS playstation friends. Just be warned, my internet in general usually sucks :p

I'd add you but I don't actually have the game.

And yes, Steve is pretty high up there in terms of power but the game just came out and I sincerely doubt he'll go that much higher.

I have pretty much every other fighting game on the PS3 too, if you still wanna, lol.

I'm in Arkansas btw, so hopefully I can get at least a few good connections with you ATL and Nashville guys

Eh, still waiting to return to San Antonio for spring break before I can play this lovely game :/ relegated to trolling the SRK forums

I already know Julia is going to be my main. Sucks she has no command grab :(

I'm curious as to who the other is going to be, and if Julia will be point or anchor (feels odd saying anchor when the 2 chars switch so much in this game). I want to play with chars I like, so while I wait for Lars and Bryan, I'm looking into Kaz, Dictator, Jin, or Ogre. I'm mostly excited for Dictator since one of my arguments in SF4 was that he literally was not a char, but idk if that's changed for him this game...

Also, I'm really, really interested in seeing how the tiers go, because Steve and Bob (and Law, honestly) were like, brokentier in the Tekken history. Evo 2011 with 4 Bobs, anyone? And yeah, Steven is just...*insert a large list of profanity* in Tekken, so I mean...

Finally, and this is probably my nubness coming out, how is Raven not completely top tier? He, IMO, IS Wesker of this game. Teleports, full-screen one-shot projectile, small combos but for pretty good damage, and shades 8| (if you color edit his skin and hair to white and blonde respectfully, I mean...)
