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.

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.
