    sas, wolf, and lordraptor are all bullshit.
    If everyone else could move upwards socially, so can blacks. They are just dumb.
    "This comparison ignores the unique history of discrimination against Black people in America. Over the past four centuries, Black history has included nearly 250 years of slavery, 100 years of legalized discrimination, and only 50 years of anything else. Jews and Asians, on the other hand, are populations that immigrated to North America and included doctors, lawyers, professors, and entrepreneurs among their ranks. Moreover, European Jews are able to function as part of the White majority. To expect Blacks to show the same upward mobility as Jews and Asians is to deny the historical and social reality that Black people face."

    Bullshit characters that shit all over weak players and give veterans a hard time are good for games.

    One thing I already love about this game is that all my favorite characters are top tier. That said, every character in the game is pretty cool.

    I hear more complaints about Gallon than Sasquatch. Then again this is your first time seeing Sas in the earlier games.

    Gallon is just hella easy but Sas is just so much better, but he's more likable. Who can't help but like a guy who farts snowcones and just wants to give high fives.

    So I made a post tryign to get people on Unity to try to get people to support it for the EVO donation drive thing, and somehow, some idiot uses it as a chance to start ranting against those who're happy with simply getting an arcade perfect port of the games.

    He's lower-mid tier in Savior, and low tier in Night Warriors. He might seem like a standard shoto at first glance, but he's pretty tricky to use effectively

    Do I take for granted that it's because of his Akuma-like flash step/dash among other things?

    Anyway, if I am to use Demitri (assuming I ever want to get this game), what I need to know?

    Also, he's ranked in accordance to which tier list?

    So this thing is over now(or in an hour or something) and I totally forgot about it until yesterday. I submitted a boringcharacter with some moves, that I made a week after the contest was announced. I might post it here(though it's pretty bad). People are posting their stuff at Capcom-Unity and I don't think I have any chance against their walls of text or actually good artists, who probably took part in the contest and posted nowhere about it. Oh well.

    Anybody else who submitted something?

    Looking to get into Darkstalkers since I'm ass at Tekken and want a secondary game. How is Pyron, and for that matter, what is Pyron?
    Pyron's an alien who's transcended to the level of a cosmic being and now consumes planets and fights other supernatural beings in his spare time.

    He's ranked high in Night Warriors/Hunter, but in VSav2 he's ranked low because his tools are designed weirdly (i.e., his throw does absurdly low damage while not creating any setups) and a lot of characters have easy ways around what he can do. I'll let a specialist explain in more detail.

    Weird question, while were on the subject of VSav2, what was the point of those games (including VH2)? What was Cap trying to do, were they just experimenting?

    I don't think anyone really knows the whole story, but one rumor I've heard repeated is that part of the motivation was the management wanting to use up a lot of excess CPS2 boards the company had lying around. The reason it's 2 separate games is that they wanted to bring back the characters who were cut during the jump from Hunter to Savior, but the CPS2 board doesn't have enough ROM capacity to hold the graphics for all 18 characters on one board (which is why they were cut in the first place). There was only like 3 months between the releases of Savior and VS2/VH2, so it was done in a hurry. Supposedly the initial reaction to Savior was also pretty mixed, so maybe they felt they had to do some sort of update to try and regain players' favor. Although of course it backfired and VS2/VH2 died instantly while Savior still gets played regularly today.

    they also removed the original endings in VS2, probably to save space. all characters have the same ending

    since the console releases later added all characters and you could play all three games at once, no one bothered with the arcades anymore.

    Yeah, particularly since the series is most popular in Japan, where arcade tends to be the standard. And Chronicle was disliked because of it's strange inaccurate mashup nature.

    I wasn't talking about Japan like Felineki and d3v were.
    Chronicle sucks none of the characters really play like the older versions. The older characters in HSF2 at least the differences were minor with the them enough to not notice a difference for awhile, but in Chronicle it was outright different.

    Vsav EX Edition the PS1 version has different hitboxes, choppy animation which causes different frame data, different turbo speeds(frameskip), and the choice to play as the vsav2 versions how is it considered a port when even the title says it isn't?

    Vampire: Darkstalkers Collection(PS2) wasn't released outside of Japan so only a few fans got it stateside.

    I'd have thought we'd see more Demitri frankly. He's got the projectile and "seemingly" difficult to punish DP right there waiting for him, on top of being a pretty badass character.

    • Tiers plz.
    [SIZE=13px]The tiers are rather subjective and tend to shift around a bit. Fortunately the game is really quite balanced (for a Capcom game) and there isn't much of a difference in strength between the top/mid/bottom tiers. There are very few 8-2 matchups and there are no 9-1 matchups. Most matchups are close to even.
    • Top- Sasquatch, Zabel, Q-Bee, Gallon, Bulleta.
    • Mid- Felicia, Bishamon, Demitri, Aulbath, Lei-Lei.
    • Low- Jedah, Lillith, Morrigan, Victor, Anakaris.

    Then you haven't played the game enough or you play Gallon.
    fe7286f9.jpg
    Most recent match up chart pay attention to the values not where the character is located (Lilith and Demitri are tied).
    That tier list(on mizuumi) is grouping them together being listed first doesn't mean they're stronger.

    people will always flock to 'ryu' of the game. morrigan will be very popular also, partly due to her success in mvc3.

    over time tho, i feel that bbhood, qbee and felicia will become the most used characters.

    bbhood because of sako, and she is a nightmare to fight if ur not good at push blocking. qbee for high/low mixups plus being hard as fuck to meaty. felicia cause of overall very solid normals, fast jump and high/low mixup.

    If everyone else could move upwards socially, so can blacks. They are just dumb.
    "This comparison ignores the unique history of discrimination against Black people in America. Over the past four centuries, Black history has included nearly 250 years of slavery, 100 years of legalized discrimination, and only 50 years of anything else. Jews and Asians, on the other hand, are populations that immigrated to North America and included doctors, lawyers, professors, and entrepreneurs among their ranks. Moreover, European Jews are able to function as part of the White majority. To expect Blacks to show the same upward mobility as Jews and Asians is to deny the historical and social reality that Black people face."

    Morrigan is one of the hardest characters to play efficiently. I doubt many will choose her, unless they are fast and precise enough to pull DI combos. But then, they'd use that skill to fare better with stronger characters.
