Ugh, what is this.

Don't get me wrong, Felicia was one of my favorite Darkstalkers characters, but this moe stuff doesn't belong in Tekken. Not only that, but they couldn't even give her a unique fighting style. Half these moves are straight Xiaoyu ripoffs.

I can tolerate it.

I think most will move on. If she plays great and the game is great that is all that matters to me.

a few of the already existing women in the cast could probably have six packs added, or that new fighter could have some detailed added for it also.

Pretty much. If the game is great, I don't really care.

I'm not going to let one character ruin an entire game for me.

People seem offended but I can tolerate her. All that salt though.

While I agree it wasn't suuuuper serious... the tone between Tekken from Tekken 2 & Tekken 3 to now is night and day.

They got rid of the dark cyberpunk world of the mysterious Zaibatsu conglomerate holding these tournaments from Tekken 2 and 3. And it's now the adventures of Goku mishima/kawaii robot & their shitty friends saving the world from emo-lord Jin. Here are the new characters we got in Tekken 3:

Eddy: Capoera, Hwoarang: Baek, Ling: (some kind of Kung Fu), Bryan: Kick-boxing, etc.

The 6 last revealed characters Tekken got were Lars, Alisa, Eliza, Katarina, Claudio, and now Chloe.

Doesn't it say something about how different they're catering their new characters. Before we'd get believable yet cool new characters based on legitimate martial arts. Now the only character that has a martial art is Katarina while everyone else is one Anime trope after the other.

I love Tekken more than anything... but it is way too obvious that they've given up on us legacy fans and are willing to alienate us to seek a brand new demographic.

I wonder what the reception for Chloe is like in Japan, I'm betting they're hype as fuck hahaha.

I just hope this isn't a sign that most of the focus for T7 is on the Japanese audience. If SF5 goes straight to console, T7 will make an absolute killing in arcades and we might have to wait forever for a console version.

That's what really makes me hate it even more. They add THIS kind of nonsense and then are going to have to cut out old favorites to keep it to 36 - 38 like Harada said?

So now they're going back to the storyline involving Kazuya and Heihachi (more serious stuff) while creating more and more characters that they can fit inside.

Dunno I legitimately grew up playing tekken from 1 to 5 (took a break) then 6 to present. I don't think the game has changed that much, they just took a break from the constant serious organization stuff.

EDIT: Also wasn't Miguel and Dragunov part of those newer fighters who have real fighting styles also?

Maybe some of the new character designs do that ,but the gameplay is hardcore fans first in every possible way.

Miguel was revealed in 2007, Dragunov in 2005.... that's 7+ years ago man. This downward spiral has started post-bloodline rebellion.

And when I was talking about the Dark Cyberpunk atmosphere I wasn't talking about the Kazuya vs Heihachi storyline because by that logic the Tekken Blood Vengeance movie would count too and that was just japanese school-girl+robo lesbo action + other slice of life anime fuckery. The Dark Cyberpunk world is the combination of all these cool characters in the environment reliving 80's-90's Hong Kong action cinema in the best way videogames can. Tekken doesn't give that feeling anymore at all.

If I only played games for the system I'd also be playing Arcana Heart, Aquapazza, and Degenki Waifu Simulator as well right now. Aesthetics matter to me. Tekken is just a special case where they had enough of what I loved about the game for me to tolerate all the nonsense they're bringing in.

EDIT: Dammit, I need to calm down. Gonna go sleep and hope I feel better in the morning.

174. 174. One-Hundred and Seventy-Four.

Looking at the video and the actual movesets Lucky has way more in common with Mignon then she ever could with Marie Rose. We're talking the whole package here; Moveset & Look. Shit, she reminds me more of Eileen then she does Marie Rose when I think about it anyhow.

Everybody sees what that want to see. This includes opinions that this one character is making you drop the series. You'll calm down and see it was a design choice, accept this fact and play some Tekken, DoA or whatever the hell you wish to complain about that has no merit anyhow.
