Yes I know, in gaming years SC2 is positively ancient, blah blah blah, and two sequels have been released… Plus SF4’s come out.
(Rrr…Ain’t got me no XB360 or PS3.)
…Oh well. I still have my PS2 and a few good fighters to mess around with. In addition to a Nintendo Wii. (That’s Right, I said NINTENDO Wii-watcha gonna do about it, Mr. Aime?) Anyway, what I’m here to talk about is the seemingly unpopular character Necrid. It seems to me that he’s one of the he’s one of the craziest, most powerful characters in the game.
Many of his attacks cancel into one another, and his dashing and teleportation moves ( like the “Elder Topaz” Dash, et cetera, it’s been a while since I used him in practice mode.) give him incredible movement abilities. Plus, one of his specials allows him to nuke characters from below with a fireball!(Of which the distance can also be controlled for a short time using the d-pad, allowing you to really screw with your opponents-especially on the wake up.) He also has a few throws that can catch enemies in mid-air, allowing you to stick a little extra damage on your competitor after knock-up combos.
… He faintly reminds me of Blanka, having that similarly green skin all those eccentric moves.
Anyhow, try him out in training! You won’t be disappointed!
