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.

We've known about Cole (from inFAMOUS) for a while now, but here comes some new challengers (at least on the PS3 and PS Vita).
I think the old, fat Mega Man from the original's box art is hilarious. The Pac-Man is ridiculous, I don't even know what those small things are (what game is that from?). Cole looks interesting. I wonder though, since none of these will be playable on the Xbox, will they be allowed in tournament play? If not, they are all fn irrelevant.

Capcom has informed me that there is a ton of new info on Street Fighter X Tekken today. 34 NEW Screenshots. Street Fighter X Tekken looking like a full on anime right now. Also check out this 20 min video about the gems and how they work.
Personally, I don't know what to think about this game. The Tekken Jimmys really don't do anything for me. I read that the Tekken characters don't feel like Tekken characters, but they don't feel like the Street Fighters in the game either. They are something else. So no 10 hit combos? Not hype.
Then you got these new screenshots. Pretty cool looking. I don't know anything about these gems except that some people think they should be banned already. I like the aspect of the gems being strategic. Jimmys just afraid they gonna be out smarted. And they probably will.

My preview for Street Fighter X Tekken. Here are my reasons why I think this game will rock.
With Street Fighter X Tekken getting better with new info being brought up, I could say that I'm getting all hyped up for this. Let's look at what has been revealed thus far.
I don't know what the story is about, but it seems to involve a mysterious meteor that has crashed landed in the Antarctic. Hidden within this meteorite is a strange, but mysterious box-shaped objet called "Pandora", which it is beyond human comprehension. It cannot be opened by any conventional means, but when it detects violent confrontations, it'll give off a strong response.
One good thing about this game is that it's going to feel similar to that of Street Fighter IV and Super Street Fighter IV. There will be new game mechanics added. Here's what they are:
- This game will have a fast-paced tag-team fighting system.
- By borrowing the concept of Tekken Tag Tournament, if one character of a team is KO'd, the round is then over. Also, unlike Tekken Tag Tournament, characters won't be recovering life while in the sidelines.
- A three-tier super meter. it'll cost 2 meters to use Supers while it'll cost 1 meter to do Tag Cancels and EX moves.
- Tag Cancels can be used to switch out characters while in a combo, or to get an injured fighter out of harms way. It can also be used while laying on the ground to avoid wake-up attacks and to tag a fresh player in.
- Cross Arts: a move that allows for both members of the team to pull off both their supers.
- Cross Assault: dubbed SfXT's "Centerpiece", This will allow both team members to be on screen at the same time, allowing for crazy custom combos.
Here's a video showing the mechanics in action:
including all what you see in the video, at TGS, the following modes and mechanics were added in this game:
- 2-on-2 dual battle: allows four players to participate in 2-on-2 battles.
- Scramble: a 2-on-2 battle mode in which all four characters are on the screen at the same time.
- Briefing Room: you can call this an online training mode, where you and a friend can practice moves and combos together, whether it's against each other, or as a team.
- Pandora: a new game mechanic in which it sacrifices your partner in battle for a short, but powerful boost. Players can activate Pandora when one of the characters on the team is below 25% health, and pressing "down, down, MP+MK". While in Pandora mode, the cross gauge will be filled to maximum capacity, allowing the player to use Supers and EX moves infinitely. There is a catch, however: if the player dosen't defeat the opponent within the time limit, that player will instantly lose the round. As Seth Killian would say it: "It's not a comback mechanic, but rather a unholy high-stakes gamble."
- Gem System: a new mechanic in which players game give their characters different attributes by setting up gems prior to the battle. So, let's say we have two ryu players. they might use the same character, but based on what gems they set up, you can have two totally different gameplay styles.
I kinda enjoyed some of the music that is currently heard through the trailers and gameplay footages so far. I recognized two of Heihachi's theme remixed in different levels, which I thought was cool. the Cross Arts theme is cool as well, depending on who does the Cross Art. Let's hope for some more good tracks to be added in.
The graphics look good for this game. It's going to use the same graphics engine used in both Street Fighter IV and Super Street Fighter IV. This gives Capcom a chance to give the Tekken characters to be re-imagined in SFIV's highly acclaimed art style, all while having their unique characteristics intact.
Aside from the characters, the stages in this game looks awesome as well. not only that, you'll have various cameo appearances of characters from both capcom and namco franchises in the background.
Final Verdict HYPED!!!!!
Before I go, here's some recorded footage from Capcom Unity during a live streaming event back in August:

Pandora is basically SFxT's version of X-Factor. Plus new characters.
You have to sacrifice your partner to activate Pandora, which could be cool. There is also a 4 player simultaneous 2v2 mode.
I can't keep track of what characters have or have not been officially announced or just rumored but oh yeah, Rolento is going to be my main!
A full on trailer, not just character teases.
