    Good. Keep your stupid Marvel bullshit out of my KoF.
    Oh god, I just disagreed with JohnGrimm.

    ...

    But it had to be done.

    Also those 3D models sure look rudimentary. I can't imagine them making a fighting game with such low-quality renders. Cheap graphics for a non-game, sure, but I would think a game would require more extensive 3D modeling.
    I'm a tryhard, big deal. I don't see why you care.

    Oh well. She's an Ash Saga character as of KOF03 so if they dream match, she should be a shoe in.

    I dunno i dont think you'll ever see the sports team return, probably the last bastions of fighting game character stereotypes.

    Haha maybe that's why people are quite fond of them?

    As far as stereotypes go, I liked them actually.

    Lucky was garbage (imo) but I think Heavy D was a very interesting take on the Boxer Character Archtype and he had great frame traps. Brain Battler was just a moving hitbox, I loved that guy.

    Actually, all three were very good (specially in KOF 98UM). The only downside were the designs, that were not as appealing as the other characters. But that could be easily rebooted.

    I hope so. I wanna see her and her twin sister in the next Saigado doujin (it's been a while since that guy did a KOF doujin), so SNKP better step their game up.
    My main: the most lame, cheesy, trollish character in your favorite game.

    Yeah, apparently people do play Advanced V.G. 2, well Japs do. Check it out, the grandaunt or some shit of anime games: Advanced V.G. 2 - JPN Competitive Matches

    I sure do hope they make a new 2D gameplay SamSho game. Last good game I played was Tenkaichi Kenkakuden (SS6), still play that every so often.

    You can't reboot characters like that, they are what they are, cheesy 90's stereotypes.
    Frankly i wouldn't want them to either it's part of the reason why i like the usa sports team.
    To be honest i'm sick to death of reboots remaking whatever, what would the usa sports team be rebooted into?

    Usa Music team? or some shit, lucky doubles as 2 pac, heavy d is a dubstep dj, brian battler becomes beiber battler, as stupid as it sounds i put nothing past the idiots that run these companys today

    Only reason they were not as appealing is because they were a bit shit, people gravitate what's good/broken, you could put an icecream cone with shit on it make it broken/good and it would still be more popular than usa sports team, not the fact that it's a good design or decent in the game just because it's top tier.

    Just update the costumes.

    You really don't need to reeboot the costumes outside of maybe Brian.

    As long as the character models look better than those of SSFIV I think it should be fine.

    They can always look better.

    OK, all of them but Heavy D!
  • Lord_RaptorLord_Raptor Joined: Posts: 8,810
    Heavy D is one of the most ballin character designs ever. Never understood why people ahd problems with Lucky.

    Just update the costumes.

    In my opinion that could work for heavy D but not for the other 2, those 2 are beyond redemption, in terms of being able to give them a new look while still keeping the essence of what makes them likeable characters

    People hate on lucky because he is shit tier and black, he never stood a chance

    Isn't he really bad in The Slugfest if I remember the tier list correctly? That and he didn't seem too hot in that game either.

    In Vanilla 98 Heavy D! is like the only member of the US Sports Team worth playing and even then he's still not very strong. Fortunately 98 isn't so harsh that lower tier characters are unplayable. In the updates though pretty much all of the US Sports team was buffed and made pretty solid.

    Why was this flagged?

    If y'all fucking niggas knew any better, he's one of the better Lucky Glauber players in Japan along with SR and 1-2 other players. Get educated.

    Not to mention he's one of the crazy players that use EX in regular 98.

    It's a shame Saisyu doesn't show up much anymore, with the holiday season coming around he could truly celebrate Kwanzaa.

    Why with all the SNK characters do they insist on rehashing the entire cast plus or minus a few oddball characters.

    They NEVER shine the light on the characters people really want to see its a shame.

    Because the scene is mad diverse and a ton of characters are popular, hard to nail it down. Also what America finds populaur and Japan do are totally different when it comes to characters.

    Who are the characters you really want to see? The list differs for everyone, I mean I want Tizoc back but I can find 3 other people who don't care.

    You are literally whining that Capcom keeps putting SF2 characters in Street Fighter when those are the characters that sell games. They aren't rehashing anything, they are keeping the mandatory mainstay characters in first and adding other shit second. I want nothing more than the US Sports Team to come back, but I also recognize that Japan Team, Iori Team, Kim Team, Fatal Fury Team, Art of Fighting Team, and whatever team they add to get Mai in the game are absolutely the most important characters they NEED to have in the game, and that's 18 characters right god damn there. K` Team is also arguably just as essential, 21 characters, Psycho Soldier is also a pretty staple team, 24 characters, and Ikari Warriors don't seem to be going away any time soon, 27 characters.

    Depending on how long it takes to make the characters in the game (XIII being a character creation cycle that is quite the god damn time sink), it's just not feasible to add all the oddball characters people want that just flat out are not as important to the game as the staple characters are.

    Kind of agree, kind of not.
    Characters like Goro have been on and off many times, they're not that essential and people don't miss them so much.
    I'm glad they retired Chang and Choi, their charge gamestyle was not that useful in the later games. I'd say they should retire Leona too, or severely retool her, she has not been good in many years. Chin is not exactly a favorite either, and not many people missed him in the 2003-XI era; I'm sort of glad they give him a twist for XII/XIII, I still prefer him over Momoko.
