I’ve been looking into picking an alt character to use alogn side Adon, and I still can’t really decide. I can play Akuma kinda sorta, but his fragile health really doesn’t mesh with my play style, nor am I too good at setting up untechable knockdowns and cross-ups. And I don’t much like Gouken; He’s cool but he also doesn’t fit well with my more defensive and observe-atory play style.
I then came to the oldest choice in the SF book: Ryu or Ken? I know Ken got a number of helpful buffs in AE, and Ryu apparently got one or two little debuffs, and a couple changes to his game, but because my starter was Sagat, the Tatsu Playstyle is almost completely foreign to me.
So should I go with Ken, who’s considered to be better than Ryu last time I checked, or go with the mainstay of the series? I would rather avoid Yun and Yang, at least until the rage for them has died down a little bit.
