Good lord was that disappointment on a silver platter sent straight to the doorstep of every Capcom fan out there who knows a lick of Street Fighter.  I don't know who's idea it was to cast a Shadaloo Doll as the fifth character (although my first guess was Izumi Konata from Lucky Star because of the scene where she fought Guile because hewhydoIknowsomuchaboutLuckyStar, so shame on me) but to cast one who looks like Cammy was doubly horrible.  And while one can argue that her combination of projectiles, teleportation and use of charge instead of quarter circle makes her a Cammy/Dee Jay/Dhalsim mixture that doesn't stop the character design from screaming lame (pretty much comes with casting a Shadaloo Doll).  Also, while I have read some of Udon's Street Fighter Legends Comics, that does not make it a good idea to add a comic exclusive character to the main roster without even a passing mention in the main game's story.  While I have seen gameplay of it, I have to give my honest opinion when I say that I was not impressed with the character Decapre.  Surely, tourney fans I have heard argue that the game isn't for casuals, but then again how are you going to market a game to that small of a niche?  Also, it doesn't make sense as to who is casual and who isn't by that logic.  I play a lot of King of Fighters XIII and had a decent ranked Guy on SSFIV, but I play some Banjo-Kazooie on the side, does that make me a casual?  But getting back to the point, this was the lamest reveal I have seen in a while, they wasted four of their slots with characters from SFxTK and then they waste their last slot on a Shadaloo Doll.  You know, instead of the MANY CHARACTERS FROM THE ALPHA SERIES, FINAL FIGHT AND STREET FIGHTER III THAT THEY CHOSE NOT TO PUT IN.  They should have used that slot to really dig up some names like Oro, Carlos, Q, Maki, Necro, Twelve, Dean, Lucia, R.Mika, Karin, Sodom, Eagle, anyone would be better than a Shadaloo Doll.  Seriously.  And unfortunately, this only shows how desperate Capcom is to hold on to their base and while catering to tourney fans is good idea on paper, I consider Street Fighter to be a gateway fighting game for casual players because it has become such a household name.  Hadouken is pretty much engraved in popular culture almost globally and many pros in other fighting games get their start on Street Fighter.  But to cater only to hardcore players who might get PAID TO PLAY STREET FIGHTER, instead of the consumer/casual gamer they are losing a lot of their potential sales.  Also, NO OTHER FIGHTING GAME FRANCHISE IS DOING THIS UPGRADE CRAP TO THIS DEGREE ANYMORE, sure they DO (cough Blazblue cough) but not to the extent that SFIV have and has been doing for the past five years.  This really sucks because Street Fighter was something I grew up on and pretty much made my High School experience (at least at home) and to watch it get transformed into a creepy niche no-casuals-allowed club really makes me down about the franchise's future (please Capcom make CVS3 it would sell like orange juice).  Clearly, I'm absolutely livid so I'm gonna end this rant/journal with a link to a picture of the cast of Full House.  See you guys later.

I've decided to update my profile since its two years old. So I'm just going to go ahead and re-introduce myself as timberking, the author of the Mishaps of Dan series, Zephyr and a series of smaller illustration projects such as Cyndy 2.001 and Mark and Elaine. My work varies in style and can go from east to west quickly. I do do commissions when I have the opportunity and just contact me if you're interested. See you guys later!

Hey! Big fan of your comics here, I even follow you in Facebook! Is there a chance you can possibly make a comic featuring Nightwolf and/or T. Hawk? I'd love to see them interacting with Dan!

I've been meaning to squeeze in some more of the sf2 cast in there anyway! I'll see what I can do for the next comic!
