After a while being away from Gouki.com I have returned to find a challenge, I must somehow choose a team from a roster of the stars of Street Fighter and Tekken. Wish me luck.
The death of my pc has kept me from being able to post on here since November, but with a Laptop ready to go I return to the site to do some catching up, and what do I find? Gouki.com has another kickass giveaway going on. And this time it was for Street Fighter X Tekken. All it takes is write a story about the team you want to play as, easy right. Wrong. As I look over the roster I realize that a team of two characters just isn't big enough.
The truth is from the Tekken side I have a few favorites, Jin and Kazuya are at the top of the list but you can't overlook Yoshimitsu or King.
If they had the right Jin He'ld be on the team for sure.
I just couldn't decide. So I decided to check out the Street Fighter side. And it just made things worse. Ibuki felt like a sure thing, at first.
But as I looked at the list there were just to many great characters to choose from. Akuma (Gouki) is always high on the list
And you just can't over look Cammy...
This just keeps getting more complicated. I'm sure all use them all in various combinations until I find the right mix, but I still have to start somewhere. So I just keep watching videos and reminiscing about all the fun I've had with them in the past. And then it hit me. What better team could I start with? How was it not obvious from the start?
Poison and Juri! Juri is one of the craziest female characters to ever put the digital beatdown on anyone. And Poison can throw down with the best of them with the added bonus of distracting your opponent as the wonder if she's packing heat. The quest was over! For now at least. Until I have a chance to try the characters out and really get into the mechanics of the game (including how much I suck with various characters) I can't be sure what my final team will be, but I do have a place to start.
Best of luck to all of you who enter. And remember don't be a Jimmy!
And just for the Jimmys...

Once again, I've come up with another potential team for the game. Read on to find out why I want to use this team.
After rummaging through the roster, I Just so happened to find myself another possible team to use. This time, I'll be talking about these two:
Juri Han from Super Street Fighter IV & Hwoarang from TekkenRead full story...
The characters I wanna play with so bad in Street Fighter x Tekken.
After watching all the character trailers again and again, it was really hard for me to choose. But at the end of the day, my choice was so easy for the simple reason that ps3 is my main system and has never wronged me (except for my fat one's laser dying on me). I'm going with Pac-man and Juri. Originally I was all for cody and guy after one trailer because I love 'Final Fight' so much (this game includes some return characters that I haven't seen since alpha and final fight), but then I saw the 5th cinematic trailer. I got real pumped up for juri and bison. In ssf4, when I first picked up juri, she was loads of fun to play with (originally my main was blanka, TO THIS DAY I STILL THINK THEY SHOULD'VE PUT HIS SMOOTHIE TAUNT BACK!) and her combos flowed so smoothly, at least for me. Plus, look at her...she is completely hot imho. It would've been nice if she had the same broken powers that she had in the OVA. Another thing I like about SFxT is that to do hypers, you only need to do the DP movement once (like in umvc3) which is a good thing since I can concentrate more on doing combos instead of having to stand still and do it or it not registering my input on the second DP movement before I press the last button to execute it. Mind you, this game doesn't seem as crazy as umvc3, but it sure does show the speed and flow of chaining combos left and right that I love about the 'vs series' in general.
Now about Pac-man, I only have one thing to say since sadly, there aren't any gameplay trailers of him that I'm aware of as of yet and that thing is this: "IT'S BLOODY PAC-MAN! IN A MOKUJIN MECH!!" Now I don't know about you, but when I saw that (along with me laughing at the NA art megaman's antics) I stopped laughing for a second and was getting excited thinking of beating the shit out of ryu or even kazuya with pac-man. I really do hope they allow the ps3 exclusive characters for tournaments.
Now I'm a bit curious to hear about everybody else's team.

Back again with another team I would possibly use in the upcoming Street Fighter X Tekken game.
After I wrote my previous story about what characters I would use as a team in Street Fighter X Tekken, I figured I write another story dedicated to a possible second team. This time, I'll be talking about the following two characters:
Chun-Li from Street Fighter & Jin Kazama from TekkenRead full story...

One of them is a trap. the other... well he uses a sword and has way too many costume changes. Find out why I would use these two as a team.
Once again, I managed to find another possible team to use. This time, I'll be talking about these two particular fighters:
Poison from Final Fight & Yoshimitsu from TekkenRead full story...
This is my picks for Street Fighter x Tekken and why.
The wait is almost over Street Fighter x Tekken is almost at our finger tips. This upcoming fighter mixes the Street Fighter 4 engine with Tekken characters, Street Fighters characters as well as some Capcom and Sony related characters. The anticipation is building up so much at this point that many of us are already thinking of character combinations to make the ultimate duo.
Personally my first pick is Yoshimitsu, this character is pretty epic to say the least. I remember playing as Yoshimitsu in ps1 Tekken games as well as Soul caliber. This character has a variety of fluent sword attacks as well as almost insane behaviors such as his teleport ability which is done by spinning on the floor while swinging the hilt of his sword up and down in an almost ritual like fashion.
My second pick Is Mega man aka (Dan in mega man costume) this may come as a surprise to many because of its absurdity but first you must understand that my current main characters in StreetFighter 4 are Yun and Adon which are both missing from SfxT at the time. I think this mega man will be a great hold over till a future update to the game adds my mains. All I got to say is what better way to induce rage on your opponents than to crush them with a Dan looking mega man, the biggest joke in this coming installment to the series.
Juri & Pac-Man wont stand a chance
It's the battle of the century Street Fighter x Tekken is almost here and i have to say i am very excited to transition from Street Fighter 4 to Super Street Fighter 4, Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition and finally Street Fighter x Tekken. Me and my friends were excited about the roster of SfxT because we just had to figure out who we were going use to piss each other off with.
Ryu a man of great power, a man whose ultra's hit box could rival that of all his enemy's ultra's put together AND! he could still have time to holla at chun-li. Ive used ryu for all the street fighter version and i was very disapointed that he was a little slow in Sf so i hope for SfxT he's faster.
Ah Ken what could i say about Ken i really cant say anything except that his SHORYUKEN!!! is tousty goddam is that move op i remember doing ryu's MESTU shoryu the one that could rival satan and what not, Ken completely destroyed my ultra with that move. Which is why im going to put him on my team.

Akuma and Heihachi make plans to kick ass. Whether it be each other's ass or the rest of the Street Fighter X Tekken roster is still undecided.
Street Fighter X Tekken is a game I never thought I'd ever see (in an official capacity anyway). There's no denying that I've always wondered what it would be like if Akuma and Heihachi met. What's most intriguing to me about the pairing of Akuma and Heihachi is how different and similar they are. Sure Heihachi may look silly (see below) and love to make himself laugh, but he's just as much the power hungry remoreless ass kicker that Akuma is. We're talking about someone who threw his own son over a cliff just because he didn't want a pansy for a son. (I still question why he adopted Lee, but that is neither here nor there.)
Akuma lives for the fight and he just doesn't have a rat's ass to give if you have a problem with it. That includes his master and his brother. Akuma beatdown Gouken so bad this fool was in a coma until Ryu grew up. I'd love to see Oni Akuma taunting Heihachi because he can't seem to get the devil gene away from Kazuya and Jin. What would be even better is if Akuma helped the king of iron fist learn some dark hadou.
Regardless of what the outcome of their initial meeting is, one would be hard-pressed denying what their combined efforts could accomplish. They would totally be The Iron Fists of Death.
R.I.P. Gouri Daisuke. You were the one and only voice of Heihachi and Edgemaster.

Here are my reasons of why I'll most likely use these characters in SFXT.
I took a long good look at the roster for some time now and realized I could do good with the following two characters:
Vega from Street Fighter,
and Steve Fox from Tekken.
Let me explain Vega first, as I have more history involving this narcissistic madman from Spain. I remember, a long time ago, back when I used to play Street Fighter II on the SNES, He would always be one of the few opponents I would always have problems dealing with, no matter what character I used. He always was moving one step ahead of me, taking advantage of the situation. Eventually, when I finally defeated him,I felt a sense of relief. I gave him an 8/10 on the difficulty meter on that version.
Fast Forward a couple years later. Street Fighter Alpha 3 was out on consoles. I played it with a friend every time we meet up to have some fun. this was probably the first time I got to try Vega, although I wasn't much fond of using him, remembering all of what I had to deal with back in Street Fighter II. Much to my expectations, I was messing up a lot, which ended up with many defeats using Vega (Gen is my Main in the Alpha series since 2). Since then, when I had the chance, I would go and practice using Vega whenever my friend brought it over.
When the Street Fighter Anniversary Collection came out on the PS2 back in 2004, I rented it, and played alot of Hyper Street Fighter 2. Through this port, This is were I finally started embracing the use of charge characters, as Vega would finally be an asset for me to use. After running through the game multiple times, each time using a different version of Vega (Champion edition, Turbo, Super, & Super Turbo), Vega had become a powerhouse for me. I later bought the anniversary edition when it came out on the Xbox a year later.
Moving on to 2009, when I finally got my Xbox 360, I purchased Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix, and put my Vega skills to the test in online battles. This is where I truly used Vega as a main, and not a secondary, and I ended up putting in many victories, both in ranked battles, and in friendly competitions with my online buddies. His unique style of attacks, evasive moves, and the Flying Barcelona Attack were key parts in my play style.
As you can see, I definitely had a lot of history with Vega, both annoying and great. As for why I would like to use him in Street Fighter X Tekken: He's a main in previous street fighter games, and i would like to apply my experience to him in this game.
When it come to Steve Fox, I might not have as much history with him as I did with Vega, but I'm still have my experiences with him. The first time I tried using him was in Tekken 4, in which he made his debut. Unlike any of the other characters in the roster, Steve Fox doesn't kick (that's right, he doesn't kick, unless you get him to do a jump kick in the air). Instead, like any boxer, he would bob and weave, dodging any attacks depending on the situation, as well as giving him opportunities to use other attacks as moves around. I took the time to getting used to him, and he eventually became one of my more frequently used characters in the series.
With Tekken 5, Steve pretty much stayed the same way, although he suddenly became a secondary, just because of the fact that I started picking up on Law (who i was familiar with in previous Tekken games), and Eddy (who truly had returned, not counting the unlockable version of him in Tekken 4). Here, I learned more about using him with each fight that I went through. It wasn't an easy road, but in the end, he still proved to be a favorite for me.
When it comes to Tekken 6, Steve Fox is one of the many characters I use, alongside Lars, Bob (Which I don't know why I started picking him up), and Mokujin (random style, possible reason for picking up Bob, seeing as how every two out of three battles, I end up with Bob style). Just like the other games he was in, Steve's ability to dodge and weave through his opponent's attack proved very useful. That and the ability to pull some tricky highs and lows makes him a fierce contender.
That's pretty much my history with Steve Fox. In the end, I see much potential in using Steve in Street Fighter X Tekken. I have a feeling, since he won't be kicking, I see him having the kick buttons either being different punches (just like Dudley), or his unique evasive options. can't wait to pick him up.
Well, That's pretty much the reasons why I would use Vega and Steve Fox as a team in Street Fighter X Tekken. two unique characters with a twist. I can't wait for this game to come out in March.
Leave your comments on the bottom, and don't be a Jimmy!

My ideal team ^^ Updated for a better entry ^^
My ideal team would be Hwoarang and Ibuki here is my reasoning.
Surface level I have only used Hwoarang on Tekken and Ibuki is one of my favorite characters of the SF series.
But here is another reason ^^ I am a Korean American married to a Japanese woman. Our countries had a pretty dark past but there is now many reasons for reconciliation and also cooperation. This two person group reminds me of my family and hopefully they can work together to make an awesome comboing team ^^
Update with the history of Korean characters in fighting games.
This is important to me because I am a Korean American and if you have met any Korean or Korean Americans you will have noticed that we are very prideful of our country. Historically one of the reasons we are this way is because we are a small country surrounded by bigger countries and we have been constantly attacked. Most of the time we have stood our ground. This sort of explains why I am drawn to Korean characters especially if they appear in Japanese video games. So here we go.
From my knowledge the earliest Korean fighter is Kim Kaphwan of the Fatal Fury and King of Fighter series.
A very typical character and if you see some of Hwaorangs moves in this game they actually feel very Kim Kaphwan ish. The earliest 3D fighting character is probably Baek Doosan of Tekken 2. Hwaorang is actually his disciple.
I actually like Paek Doosan a little better than Hwaorang, Hwaorang looks a bit like a punk ^^ and Paek Doosan is a name of a famous mountain in Korea.
I hope someone can correct me if I am wrong but these are the major Korean fighters in any fighting game. King of Fighters had a Korean team but I don't think they were that popular. This is why I was very happy to see Capcom put Juri in their Street Fighter series.
Now Juri I feel is pretty cool because not only is she Korean, but she breaks the typical idea by being a female, being evil, a little crazy, and having a cybernetic eye ^^ I commend Capcom for doing something like that!
Anyways. Thanks for reading guys! And my team remains Hwoarang and Ibuki FTW!!!!
Thanks for checking this out ^^

This is my entry for the Street Fighter x Tekken giveaway.
Bob is currently my Tekken main and I want to pick him up again due to what DMG|Kor has been showing off on Cross Assault. Once he was announced, it made me happy and I had a feeling I would play him. He is probably one of the only Tekken guys I will play, other than Law. But I would have a lot of fun playing as him and enjoy abusing this speedy tubby. >:]
Ken Masters is my first legit main in Street Fighter and I want to play him again. Yeah, yeah, yeah... I know everyone plays Ken at some point or another and he looks really cheap in what has been shown of SFxT... But I don't care since I never pay attention to tiers anyways. So... Regardless, I'm going to play as him and definitely have fun doing so.
"Team Ken Masters" is definitely going to be my main team! Remember according to Rufus in the SFxT video, Bob is "Ken Masters". This is why I dubbed the team, "Team Ken Masters" haha!
