aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa I’M ALSO WORKING ON SNIPE. i’m just
surprised i’m kinda liking how this one is going
hi guys i’m still takin commissions!
8 - Favorite Female Character?
All my favorite female characters I chose because I thought they were hot, so then I decided to learn how to play them with varying results.
Morrigan Aensland may be mid or low-tier in just about everything she’s been in, from MvC2 and 3 to Vampire Savior, but I still love playing as her. In VSav she can do tremendous damage by comboing into her Darkness Illusion EX combo, being able to come in at all sorts of angles from the air is fun in general, like all Shoto-esque characters she’s got a decent zoning game and anti-airs, plus, nothing feels more satisfying that landing a Vector Drain on an opponent. Also, dat figure of hers….UNF.
She’s second to another green-haired chick, Tira from the Soul Calibur series. It was easy to notice her in SCIII because she fought with a ring and was wearing next to nothing. Her style of combat is interesting, even if she has very few ways to do damage from long range, and she’s quick as well. I’m hoping in Soul Calibur V that she’ll be a much stronger and much more viable character.
Honorable Mention: Asuka Kazama from Tekken.
9 - Favorite 2v2 team?
Ken/Terry in SvC Chaos. Nothing more needs to be said about these two joining forces. But you know, SFxT, Tekken Tag Tournament 2, and TxSF are creating some interesting tag team possibilities…we’ll see.
Who is your favorite male fighting game character?
I’m going to get so much hate for this, but fuck it. This dude.
Ken Masters is a boss motherfucker. He just wakes up, goes out, and wakeup SRKs dudes in the face. But he’s got a lot more than wakeup SRK and Ultra 1. Ken’s got target combos, a decent zoning game (it was definitely better in Super Turbo), that nasty F+MK poke. In 3rd Strike he’s a god damn machine. He’s still decent in the SFIV series but obviously you’d have to be really good at the game in order to make him viable against the likes of the twins and Fei Long in AE - aka, those XBL tactics aren’t going to work against anyone that really knows the matchups.
In Marvel vs Capcom 2, he’s one of the few mid-tiers with an infinite. VDO makes him look as deadly as Magneto in that game - and if you know anything about MvC2, you know that Magneto is just TOO DAMN STRONG.
In short, fuck the haters. Ken Masters gives zero fucks about your weak-ass flowcharts you made. Cause he showers in hundred dollar bills and kicks asses.
A close 2nd place goes to Terry Bogard, also American, also a blonde guy that had a ponytail at one time, with an awesome moveset and the best lines of any 2D fighting game character from the ’90s that I often end up shouting at any given time. It’s a very close 2nd place though. Close enough to almost be a tie. So here’s both of them in one GIF.
