Street Fighter X Tekken!

Cannot wait to play this! As you can see from the cinematic trailer, it is going to be totally super awesome.
I want to do a proper review of this after I've actually had the chance to play it. From what I hear, it is great.

The cast is incredible, with more getting revealed as apparent DLC. Just on that point, it is kinda a bit of a strange and risky move imo, but releasing the game with a set roster and then making people pay more to download the rest of the cast is a bit rough. I mean.. maybe one or two novelty characters included as optional DLC is acceptable (and I have been guilty of buying those... :P) but making a huge extra selection of characters that are not available with the initial game just doesn't seem quite right.

However, things are not really finalised yet (apparently) so I guess we will all have to wait and see.

The graphics in game look amazing, with the same style as the Street Fighter 4 series. To be honest, I was never a big fan of Tekken.. but maybe this will be the beginning of changing my mind.

I haven't actually had too much of an opportunity to read up on all the mechanics of this game (too busy lately...), but even though it practically looks like street fighter 4 - tekken edition, it should play completely differently. Without focus attacks, and introducing tag team combos and Pandora feels almost like it will be an in-between of SF4 and MvC3.

I wish I had the hours and hours of free time I used to have so that I could spend it learning the mechanics and combos... but I don't think that will happen anytime soon. Work is eating my life D:

Hopefully I will be able to take some time out and do some online matches one day!
I sense much hilarity and rage-quitters :D

There are so many more awesome trailers for this, and you can easily find the opening and ending sequences for the teams on YouTube. The story is as expected - completely ridiculous and basically feels like comic relief for the game, but somehow fighting games just need that layer of stupidity to make it feel complete xD
