I wouldn't be surprised if in the end, we don't learn anything about G's real identity or links to Q. After all, the whole point of Q is "he's a mystery and we're not going to say anything about him", so the best thing to do is to do the same with G. "Is he the same guy or not? Myyyyysteryyyyy!"
I didn't care for G in the reveal, but the reveal looks really good. Q+Suija's bubble is a combination I didn't know I wanted.
I also love that Capcom is the only company that keeps adding weirdo characters like it was the 90s. When all the other fighting games try to attract players with a gallery of "cool" and beautiful people or improbable crossovers, SF5 has FANG, Abi and G. Keep fighting the good fight Capcom.
Holy shit, I was just looking through the Eventhubs comments section (my first mistake) and the animation complaints are back, baby. Street Fighter V has some truly spectacular animations and both G and Sagat look fantastic. It is incredible how deep the talons of this meme have sunk themselves into this community.
Thankfully, people are so hyped by the double announcement that they are shutting this shit down more often. More people seem to be calling it out.
I honestly wonder if it isn't NRS fans attempting to muddy the water and destabilize the argument around animations. I know that is crazy conspiratorial talk, but a part of me suspects that it could be true.
First character this season where I was outright wowed by the animations from the getgo. He has none of the weirdness that Sak or especial Falke and Cody suffer from. Key posing is sharp, motion is fluid, and that magma effect... *chef kiss*.
G was clearly designed with the same love that S2 was. He even has a fluid and consistent winpose with no awkward motion like Cody has.
Edit: Can somebody link a direct source for his theme? Can't hear it on mobile. Though I loved the beat to the trailer theme so I already know his theme won't be as good.
Both of these characters have wiped the shit-stain that is Falke and the blandness that is Cody from my memory. Based. Simply based. What wonderful additions these two are; they fit nicely next to Blanka in terms of pure quality this season.
G looks more technical than I was expecting, but I can't wait to try him out. New main for sure.
Sagat looks like Sagat. If I had one complaint, its that I'm not really impressed with Sagats costumes. Was hoping for something a bit more wild (give my mans a beard yo. you did it for Ryu, why not Sagat?)
