looking up KOF streams i've noticed a number of Top SF players who main SSF4 (of course) play KOF secondarily (and in Justin Wong's case it may even be his least favorite or at least least prioritized) and a lot of them do good.. really good but if you've seen them who do you think is the Best?
Here's my list
1. CCG Air (Ryu in SF, Saiki/EX Kyo/??? in KOF XIII) of all the Top SF Players he IMO is the best since he actually won a KOF Tournament.
2. Tokido (Akuma in SF, Mr. Karate/Hwa Jai/Claw Iori in KOF XIII) he translates most of what he does with Akuma in SF into his Mr. Karate [principles in offense not moves per se] and has a real Good Hwa, he is consistently good at tourneys and seems to take the game almost as serious as SF
3. Justin Wong (Rufus in SF, King, Mr. Karate, Athena in KOF XIII) Justin Wong as Faced them all from the likes of Daigo, Gamerbee, Ricky Ortiz, John Choi, Alex Valle to the likes of Bala [and has beaten him on one occasion], The Answer, Romance, he is the proof that you don't always have to "play kof" to play KOF, his defensive principles are translated faithfully from an SF players general strategem and they make it work, though again out of the gazillions of FGs Justin play, this is probably his last.
4. Poongko (??? in SF and KOF XIII) I Heard this main SF player also played KOF but i have absolutely no knowledge whatsoever..
Anyway I noticed that Top SF players can more easily translate into good KOF players but i don't know any top KOFer being in a similar position in SF.. I might be wrong though but it does't really matter anyway.
Shame we'll never see Bala vs Daigo :(
Kurt Buseik: I am a Marvelite at heart, and I like Thor. So it did pain me to see Thor go down. However, in the depths of my heart, I knew this was the way it should turn out. Not because Superman is THE icon, but because even a post-Crisis Superman would win. Many will bring up Thor's ability to create vortexes and all of the other neat tricks Mjolnir can do, but Thor's history is to head in fist and hammer first, and unless he is on the ropes, Thor rarely utilizes his other abilities. I did find Superman's recognition of Thor as maybe his single greatest opponent an appeasement in light of Superman having died at the hands of Doomsday.
"As for Superman and Thor, it's like he said -- where he comes from, the dials go up to eleven. Superman is stronger and faster, which is probably more about the scales of power in the universe he comes from, but it was enough to let him win a very tough battle. If they fought again tomorrow, it might go the other way. Since being more powerful doesn't make you a better character, I don't see it as a slight on Thor, just as the way things are..."
