Hi! We are in the final stages of the SRK forum migration. Soon, we will lock the forums so we can transfer over all the discussion threads. Please expect a downtime of a few days while we implement the migration. Thx for your patience.

  • Re: The Inevitable Street Fighter V Story Thread: ARCADE EDITION!

    I hope Juri is added to every single SF game from now on.That is all,thank you.
  • Re: The Inevitable Street Fighter V Story Thread: ARCADE EDITION!

    Need more info on Gouken and Juri pls.

    Gouken still in the mountains training with Ryu i guess ? If he would be included in SFV's roster , what do you think his story would be ? What could the old man seek apart from helping Ryu against Akuma.

    Seeing Juri team up with some of the "good guys" in SFV was weird-ish to me, i guess she did it because she had common goal to kill Bison. Still though, i hope she keeps to her own agenda for future stories.

    Still kinda cute though...

    Juri could had got way more screen time in SFV's story but it is what it is. I actually liked team Juri / Seth in SF4,too bad it didn't stay. Truth be told ,i think the only character that stood out in the story was Rashid,and idk why they tried to make Karin seem like the boss of the good guy team.

    But then i look at the way they treated Necalli in the story, so i can't complain much !

    Gouken's goal is likely for Ryu to surpass him, and show Akuma by example that his path is the wrong one and that his way through Ryu will persevere in the end. I think 2 things are left for Gouken, he can set the stage for Ryu to be taken under Oro, and/or he can die at the hands of Akuma in the future to cement the idea that Akuma has gone overboard. What I mean with the latter is that logically sometime in the future (Post-3S), Akuma will come knocking on Gouken's door again to settle the score after what happened in SF4, and Gouken will probably die this time, to give more meaning to Ryu Final x Oni end battle.

    He could also introduce us to his daughter and/or reveal Ryu's parentage before he passes away.

    I also don't think Juri wanted to kill Bison so much as she wanted to cause mischief and revel in the chaos that will ensue when all these fighters clash. Juri is beyond vengeance now, she just wants to have a fun no matter the side.

    Killing Gouken to setup a story for Ryu vs Akuma would be a bad choice in my opinion.

    Didn't this exact scenario happened before ? Gouken got "killed" by Akuma and then a rivalry between Ryu and Akuma happened ? I don't think they will go this way because it would be a waste to bring him back only to serve the same fate. Besides , if i recall Gouken blocked Akuma's demon with his power of nothingness in one of the SF4 cinematic endings. If the old man can nullify Akuma's most powerfull weapon,then shit got real.

    I think the big difference with 5 is at least characters like Gouken in 4 had their own style and we're fun to play. You weren't playing a shit version of Akuma, it was a completely different experience.

    Same with T Hawk or even Blanka. Juri was completely different as was Hakan.

    Now everyone's just got different power levels of the same shit.

    We need Gouken back,I miss that old guy a lot.
