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.

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...
I want the free game. Here's 2 great characters. And why they are awesome.
Well first off when I see the game I would just play this game strictly for fun. As the learning curve while it doesn't look steep finding the team synergy would be a pain in the butt. Judging from what I've seen and that isn't much. Seems everyone is afraid to use Tekken characters. Well to take the best of both worlds from what I know. Why not Abel and Hwoarang?
Starting with Hwoarang . While's he's no Baek Doo San. At least Baek taught this guy how to fight so the guy has something going for him. From what I remember about the Tae Kwon Do student he does have some nice and easy launchers back there in Tekken. Along with some easy combos. And he does have my favorite move "Hunting Hawk" I believe its called. Where he kicks you in the air twice and the 3rd kick knocks you down. While looking cool with that he obviously has some easy synergy so why not go to the other character.
Abel...also known as the untapped potential in my book when SF4 was released (next to Twins 2.0 AKA Rufus). Dude has some impressive throws and easy chains (or rekkas...rekkas being move 1, move 2, move 3, etc. in a simple chain). This guy is just scary to face especially online with an easy anti-air and easy command throws. I loved using this guy back in SF4. Even if throws are now lowered in priority he's still a good character. Not to mention his easy chain specials and a dodge roll as I would call it. No doubt this guy can be a good partner for Hwoarang and vice versa.

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!

So I already knew who one of my two characters was months ago. The moment I heard they were in the game, I knew.
Poison. Duh. SAY NO TO PROP 8! Plus Jimmy will be ultra distracted during gameplay.
The 2nd member was a process.
1. Eliminate all Tekken characters because Tekken is awful.
2. Eliminate all ShotokoKONNONWNONK characters because ..... well, there's no explanation needed really.
3. Eliminate Rufus because Rufus along with Hakan are the worst designed Street Fighter characters in history. I'd rather play Gil
Balrog (Not a fan of his moves typically) Cammy (I like the Poison/Cammy combo with the whole Interpol teams up with NYC Tranny Police Department, but in the end, just not really a fan of playing Cammy in previous games) Chun-Li (never been a fan of her moveset) Cody (I can't have a former lover of Poison's on her team. I need new love) Dhalsim (if you've ever seen me play Dhalsim, this is self explanatory)
Guile (Hm, maybe, though I tend to like to play characters that are a little against the grain. )
Guy (I'm assuming Cody shared with Guy. Too much history. Though teaming someone named GUY with Poison is kinda hilarious) Hugo (360 Characters are a no go for me. if a move requires more than 180 degrees, I'm fucked. I'M GETTING TOO OLD FOR THIS SHIT) Ibuki (too combo dependent. I can't do any combo that is longer than 2 hits) Juri (too many moves. I need characters who have 3-4 moves max. Not ones where you hold a button then jump around and do other things then let go of a button. WUT)
Bison (there's something appealing about this teamup. Potential)
Rolento (like the sound of this)
Vega (nah, havent enjoyed playing him since SFII Championship. Dont expect that to change now) Zangief (see Hugo)
So final 4 are Abel, Guile, Bison, and Rolento.
I'll probably end up trying all of these as a combo. Abel since I have some more recent familiarity with using his character (poorly, to boot).
BUT ULTIMATELY, THE TEAM I WOULD LIKE TO PLAY, AND WILL TRY TO "MASTER" FIRST.
POISON AND ROLENTO.
The kinkiness that will ensue......
Just wanted to say and show something.
Just wanted to show what I got. Thanks to Gouki.com ;D
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.

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...

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 ^^

Another day, Another potential team to use. Find out why I would use these two in a team in the upcoming Street Fighter X Tekken.
Once again, I've decided write another story about another potential team for this game. This time, I'll be talking about these two characters:
Rolento from Street Figher / Final Fight & Bob from Tekken 6Read full story...
This is about my character choice for sfxt. I couldn't decide between Street Fighter or Tekken. I always use characters with fireball and rush down style, since I also play a mixed style depending on my health and opponent. I hope my choices mesh well.
Of all the choices I've seen so far, Poison feels and looks like a character that would play with my style of gameplay. Now not to be character fanboy, but I don't think I could play without Juri in sfxt. I just like the way she played in Super and has interesting mixups with how her super and ultra were contrasted. Juri and Poison's zoning tools look awesome in sfxt and both have decent to great normals(from what I've seen so far). I hope their cross assault mode combo work well together because they are and will be my team in the future.
