Whoops, forgot to reply. That’s it basically. Connection with Ryu/Dan also gives him an easy story to write.Why Retsu specifically, do you figure? Is it because he's the only SF1 character who hasn't ever been playable/had a playable analogue?
Ryu, Ken, Gen, Birdie, Eagle, Adon and Sagat all became playable in future games, while Joe, Mike, Lee, and Geki had Cody, Balrog, Yun/Yang and Claw appropriating their aesthetics/fighting styles. I guess Retsu is kind of the only one left, unless you wanna count Makoto as having a kempo-adjacent pure martial arts style.
To borrow a phrase from a Capcom-adjacent businessman:
Yeah, true true. I'd love it if they started promoting more NPCs/former background characters into playable status after the magic they worked with the likes of Poison, Kolin, Zeku, etc. Mika's coach Yoko and Necro's (girl?)friend Effie would be good candidates cuz we need more lady reps in both the grappler and "weirdo" archetypes.
I still remember the :mind_blown: effect when I first understood that instead of taking air pressure or trying to antiair, in certain cases, you could just roll under it and negate or punish the jump-in from a comfortable distance. That was many years ago, it doesn't apply to all games and all characters, I don't manage to do it as often as I can, but that's probably my favourite thing to do in a fighting game.Basically, all my notes are filled with those little nuggets on all the match ups in the game. Like walking under Akuma to blow up air fireballs or my spacing method to get in on Dhalsim. I'm not really trying to "win", just maintain a level of exposure to situations so my edge doesn't get too dull.
And watching her. Luffy's Mika at Ultimate Fighting Arena was irritating the shit out of me last night.
I can't wait until we move on and Bison is dead and buried. Each time I play arcade mode with no deaths or coninues he comes and destroys everything.
If it’s only being streamed in Portuguese/Japanese at 11:30 in the morning, my guess is that it’s something more specifically-focused on the South American FGC rather than a matter if worldwide import. Maybe announcing more SA CPT majors for the 2020 season?
That's the one reason I'm holding out a bit of hope, but for something like that Intel tournament at the Olympics, I think a team announcement is significant enough for a public translation.
Would they be airing it at a time when most Westerners are at work and most Easterners are in bed if was relevant to the playerbase at large?
They announced Rashid at like 12pm ET and there was literally no direct stream footage until after a full day because it happened to be 9/11.Would they be airing it at a time when most Westerners are at work and most Easterners are in bed if was relevant to the playerbase at large?
There’s a small chance it’ll be an announcement/tease for Oro since he’s (technically) a Brazilian rep and Capcom loves to announce characters at relevant venues (i.e. Rashid at Games15 in Dubai, Zeku at TGS, etc.) but the timing and apparent lack of an English-language stream makes me suspect it’ll be CPT/Intel-related.
