Title: I was reminded of how much the new characters in Street Fighter IV suck.
Post by: Z911 on 09 August, 2008, 08:04:45 pm
*Short Rant Warning*

Let's face it, these guys are all losers and just filler material so far from what I've seen. C.Viper has absolutely nothing interesting going for her at all, especially that she wears a tie and puts her hair in a ponytail just like Cammy. Abel is supposed to be original I guess, but he has a striking resemblance to Geese Howard (http://i154.photobucket.com/albums/s272/911TheThug/AbelGeese.png) that I just can't ignore and he's also yet another uninteresting design. El Fuerte is just evidence that there's a mexican wrestler fad going on, Dead or Alive 4 added a mexican wrestler, Virtua Fighter 5 added a mexican wrestler, and now Street Fighter IV adds a mexican wrestler. It's just extremely ****ing annoying and the BS just needs to stop, I applaud Namco for not adding one to Tekken 6, but they kinda ruined that when they added Rock Howard (http://i154.photobucket.com/albums/s272/911TheThug/LeoRock.png) to there lineup.

Rufus is perhaps the only new character that actually gave me some kind of feeling when I saw him. Sure, it was kinda "WTF" but at least he has something going on for him. The other three new characters are just generic as hell, and the final boss for this game just shows that Capcom's designers are running out of ideas. Seth is the final boss of the game, and is basically just a bald Gill that doesn't wear a thong. Hell, there ****ing poses (http://i154.photobucket.com/albums/s272/911TheThug/SethGill.png) are almost the same.

So yeah, Capcom sucks at being interesting it seems. So while we all get a chance to play as Geese Howard posing as a french guy in SFIV and play as a flat-chested female Rock Howard(Yes, Geese and Rock are related) in Tekken 6, I'll go and play something that is MADE of originality. That's of course Guily Gear, Faust for the ****ing win.

I didn't read it yet, but I will after this post.

I only like 1 of the new Street Fighter IV characters, and that's El Fuerte, the luchador. Because he actually looks like I would have a good time playing as him.


EDIT: Alright, I finished reading it.

It actually makes A LOT of sense unlike most rants about this. <_< I applaud you. *applauds* Yeah, savor that.

Thanks, also El Fuerte MAY be cool but it's just that most 3D fighters nowadays are adding luchadors. He can save himself if he can be any fun.

Moar liek "too lazy; didn't read".

Any character that requires 360 motion for most of his moves/good moves suck.

Anywho, what does C. Viper look like?

EDIT: Nevermind...

This is why I only play 3rd Strike and Alpha 2.

Capcom ran out of creativity for Street Fighter because they used it all up on the Ace Attorney games.

Remember my topic about tl; dr 911......


And I don't meant to get at you or to seem as if I disagree with all that you said, but what kind of characters would count as being good, in your opinion? A skinny light-skinned black kid who wears designers suits and uses Chinese Southern Fist fighting style? A middle-aged South American hair-dresser who has her own fighting style in which she walks on her hands? Or what?

Those all sound more interesting than all four new characters to be honest.

This implies that I might like Rufus.

This whole rant is more about ragging on unoriginality in Capcom's design team, which it sucks tremendously when there final boss is Bald Gill. New characters can be good, I liked Asuka in Tekken 5 and I liked Alex in SFIII.

I've seen much longer. I just don't care about SF.

And after reading it, I have to say that in general, most well-known fighting games are getting more and more generic (To the point where you have to be told that the story and characters are interesting, like with Soul Calibur), and Guilty Gear is pretty much the only exception.


Title: Re: I was reminded of how much the new characters in Street Fighter IV suck.
Post by: Z911 on 10 August, 2008, 02:35:35 pm
Virtua Fighter is probably the worst offender though, Tekken can have some interesting characters too.

Post by: Maniac234678 on 10 August, 2008, 02:40:06 pm
I'm gonna say pretty much every fighter that has to rely on sex appeal (Which is sadly almost every fighter in the market today) are the worst offenders.

Thank you, but I would really like to hear of some possible fighters taht would both fit in with SF's style and yet be original as well.



And really, thank you very much; I wasn't even trying with those character ideas, my gosh. I've got loads of other ones.

I think a tall and skinny black guy with an afro in a purple disco suit that used Aikido and a pool stick would be cool. Vega uses a claw, so why not a pool stick?

While I'd like an actually cool buy with afro in a fighting game, he would most likely end up being painfully silly as with just about every other afro having guy in any form of Japanese media (Bushido Blade 2, Black Lagoon, and countless others; Afro Samurai is an exception, however).

Also, I'd make a character that is an eight-year old boy who was raised by parents stuck in a U.S.S.R. mind-set. He'd use Krav Maga (or some otehr eastern european fighting style). There could aslo be a character loosely moddeled after Ash from Evil Dead1&2/Army of Darkness.

From now on in this topic, let's create unique, interesting ideas for fighters in SF instead of just going over the fact that the new ones suck (because that's already widely accepted).

A stripper who carries around a pole that she swings around like a bo staff and periodically stabs it into the ground in order to perform spinning attacks; he outfits include a Nurse Busty, Officer Nasty, and The Wicked Wench of th ewest (as the battle continues on, she loses more and more clothes).

A rocker who fights using his pet falcon that can turn into a griffin or a lion, and his pet fox who can shapeshift into anything, including weapons.


....and before anyone asks, this character is actually a character I came up with as a One Piece fan character. >_>

Street Fighter hasn't had many good characters since II (with a few exceptions, not many though.)

That being said, the fact that the majority of IV's known characters are from II makes me happy, becase everyone from II kick ass.
