^ That’s very good, I’m glad no one wants to pick him up.
I really think the back throw nerf, made people say fuck having him as a main.
Player 1 says… “Gouken got some buffs…” sees the new Gouken in action* “**FUCK! ** They Nerfed Back-Throw Shin-Sho” **then commences to pick Yun, Dee Jay, Fei Long, or some other character you can spam with."
Gouken is an acquired taste, and unless someone has a decent idea of how his oki works and match up knowledge they won’t be picking him as a main, he has too many specifics. It’s much easier playing with a character that doesn’t require too much thinking (ahem… Ryu/Ken "DP or not to DP… that is the question) Though I do think you’ll see much more of him when it releases on consoles, b/c people will have more time to learn the little details, but by then we will be on to something else.
btw the new lp palm is the shit and I think I may start using Ken again since he can now link to cr. round-house so he’s part of the Vortex family.
