    Man, people just wanna see their husbando Sagat don't they? I thought Abigail looked fun in terms of both gameplay and personality but not ugly enough to warrant that kind of hate.

    Here's the shitty thing about Abigail, coming from a person who mains almost exclusively big guys, including Hugo- he doesn't move like a big guy.
    Putting the fact his animations look shite aside for a moment, they don't look like moves such a big guy should use.
    And as for his design, remember, this is what they teased him as before:

    What a disaster.

    God he's both ugly in model and animation wise. It's like, here, have all these cool announcements, and then Capcom shows up, farts, then leaves.

    He turned red and blew steam in Final Fight.
    Yeah, but part of the problem is that they seem to serve a similar function hurr hurr

    The trailer didn't show the V-trigger really affecting anything but maybe combo potential and damage, feels kinda wasteful.

    Then again, the V-system feels like a waste in general, they need to give everyone second V-skills/triggers for Season 3.

    Wait WTF is his hair the shape of a Maple Leaf? Canadians are weird.

    I like this guy, he's different and absurd to the max. People keep hating on him because he isn't what people expected.
    And his animations look shite? What. I'm actually quite fond of his throws. Well, only time will tell if he's actually any good.

    people hate him because no one wants him and every other company blew capcom out of the water for evo announcements, everyone is waiting for their main from sf4 or earlier

    The only reason why I mentioned Sagat is because he's one of the characters in the series that plays consistently different to the rest of the cast and forces people to play different with his poke-centric kit, and it would be cool to see him in such a rushdown heavy game where offence is king. Fuck, even Hugo himself would have worked, with his very long pokes and anti-air throw, he would have switched things up.

    Instead what we get is...A rushdown heavy character. Only this time, he opens people up by having multiple armoured moves that convert into combos, who on top of everything, also looks bad and moves worse. Seriously, Hugo doesn't look as cartoonish as this guy, he looks like Potemkin but moves like he's a much smaller character.

    currently watching the tekken 7 evo top 8, about an hour through

    i have never played tekken other than like, very early on as a kid on the PS1 and such, and haven't watched tekken 7 until now, but this is the most fun i have ever had watching a fighting game and i will likely be picking it up

    i've been a street fighter player/follower but holy shit that game looks fuckin good - the speed at which the game is played is nuts

    Oh yeah this year's Evo top 8 for Tekken 7 was crazy, truly peak Tekken play by basically all of the contenders. Obviously JDCR, Knee and Saint are clear standouts, but Taisei and Anakin had some really great matches too.

    As the largest character in the game, you’d expect Abigail to be all about the command grabs. He has two, as it happens, but what makes him stand out is his Nitro Charge run. This special move has one hit of armour (two for EX!) and can be cancelled into four follow-ups – a stiff punch, command grab, cumbersome overhead or V-Skill. Suffice to say, Abigail isn’t a one-trick-pony, he’s a horse-power-house.

    Greetings. With the new Xbox One controller and around 60 bucks worth of cash in my Steam Wallet (counting money refunded for Street Fighter 4 that can never save again because Games for Windows Live) I decided to invest in Fighting Games again.

    Ultra Street Fighter 4 and Ultimate Marvel VS Capcom 3 is what I spent my money on.

    Still playing chicken with Marvel VS Capcom Infinite's Release date so I can get the ultimate Preorder Version in time.

    These two wieners we shall refer to as "Jim Shorts" and "Mike Rotch" because I remember someone experiencing many online games in a row where his opponents choices are just these two wieners.

    I honestly like how Abi is a huge, fuck-off brick house. The model isn't perfect, but I like the concept.

    If he had just been another Hugo, Zangief, or Birdie (Like his concept art) I would have thought he'd be boring and generic looking, IMO.

    I think both his skins are much better than his default and do the character more justice imo.

    The average people really wouldn't know about Darkstalkers and not even much about umvc3 too if the goal is to appeal the new audience, that's the worst part.
    I still remember Jedah's appearance in Cross Edge, that game was something with cross overs. (It had Dimitri, Morrigan, Lilith and Felicia too)

    I'm still baffled that they didn't bother making a trailer for Jedah\Gamora but instead they picked the worst way possible to do with a live fight against FChump. It would work in a 1v1 scenario but it's 2v2, people only wanted to see the new characters and they got Chun Li victory screen face

    Today I learned that Venom wasn't included in Marvel vs Capcom 3 because Marvel told Capcom that they couldn't use him.

    “Venom, unfortunately, was amongst a list of characters that were not available for us to use on Marvel’s side,” Svensson revealed. “I couldn’t tell you the reason for why that is…you’d have to ask Marvel. But Venom was never an option.”
    Oh . . . . what could have been . . . . .
