I’m bored as fuck, so don’t go thinking I’m serious about this and start flaming. This is just a little something for all the fanboys that like pairing characters together for fun, with or without logic.
Here’s the scenario. Capcom’s declining popularity with fans as of late has prompted them to make Street Fighter even more accessible to casuals than it has to be. In addition to a complete library of new bullshit scrub mechanics, they decide to add a story mode that’s more robust than MK9’s. But out of desperation and unrelenting laziness, they plan to outsource the script to BioWare. They make an announcement confirming this at Comic Con where they offer multiple endings (whether or not they keep their word, that is).
And with that announcement comes a Mass Effect-style romance system. Yeah… you play through story mode, and the character you pick can hook up with one out of several pre-arranged love interests you meet as you progress, be it another playable character or a known NPC. Each romance would produce a variable that has some impact on the ending cinematic you unlock at the end of the game.
But because BioWare had its own share of shit slung at them by angry ME fans recently, they don’t want to risk pissing off SF fans either (even though they already would have to some extent).
This leads to them collecting input from fans, and this is where you come in. Whether or not you agree with the decision to include a romance system is irrelevant. It’s gonna happen no matter what, so you get to minimize the damage, or go nuts with it and destroy the continuity with whatever pairings you propose.
So what are your romance options for the characters going to look like? XD
