It sounds like something that could have happened in SFIV. It's a travesty compared to his 2I theme.

Good point

I was searching for the right words, but I was also watching the Republican debate and posting in the debate thread. Kinda hard to come back to this after seeing Christie land a level 3 focus attack on Rubio. I think we can both agree that Karin and Ingrid definitely bring more unique body types to the table than the leading SF ladies so far.

Not trying to be purposefully contrarian here but I personally think all of the SF5 girls have very unique bodies. Really the only thing you could point out as a similarity is that they're all objectively attractive.

Chun's got a really high waist, absolutely massive thighs and a rigid, balanced posture. Cammy is toned like a gymnast—iron abs, and strong shoulders and biceps. Laura has big hands and broad shoulders. Karin has a lighter, wispier frame, and Miki is thick in every department.

All of them have spectacular boobs and very feminine hips, though, so the exaggeration doesn't shirk the sexuality angle.

Makoto is another who could later come in, with a stout, muscular frame (also she has nice tits too), and Elena is skyscraper-esque, with long limbs (oh and great tits).

Ibuki, Sakura and Juri could be accused of having too similar of body types in the same group as Karin, and Poison & Rose seem to me to be of the same "naturally erotic" body type. I personally am not in any hurry to see Ingrid again, I feel like she fits with Karin, Ibuki, Sakura and Juri, and of those names only one isn't guaranteed a spot yet (but come on who actually thinks Sakura isn't getting in)?

Karin doesn't have "spectacular boobs", she has no jiggle, and none of her revealed costumes draw any attention whatsoever to her chest.


That's sort of her role amongst the female cast. Next to characters like Mika and Laura, Karin is designed to be the "conservative" one.
I agree about the rest, though. The female characters definitely don't look like they share the same body type.

Also, it's actually impressive how thick the female characters are in this game, considering the designs from most Japanese fighting games these days.

I should have just said that Karin isn't the only female designed to break the male gaze gauge. Cammy differentiates herself from Chun Li, Laura and Mika somewhat, but unlike Karin her... assets are on full display (if not worse depending on your view of vacuum sealed clothing). Cammy used to look springier and more lithe in some of her older art, but she's thick as a bowl of steel cut oats now and her poses don't leave much to the imagination. Mika just looks like a stout wrestler, but her default costume is clearly designed to be tantalizing. I put all the current females except Karin in the same appeal seeking camp even if there are some slight differences in their builds. Makoto and Ingrid definitely fall on Karin's side of the spectrum. Sakura could go either way, but I hope she ditches her school uniform above all else. Ibuki and Elena definitely have designs that tease and lead the eyes, but Elena at least has a drastically different body type compared to the other SF ladies.

I just got back from my local GAME store where they were doing the tournament with the full retail release version of the game. I was the only one there so after I did the first round the guy from GAME running it allowed me to mess around with the rest of the game. I jumped straight onto Character Stories and did a few. I managed to take pictures but I got caught out at the end and wasn't allowed to take any more. I played Ken's, Laura's, Rashid's, Nash's and Necalli's stories so if any of you have questions feel free to ask.

The first story I went on was Laura's to see if Sean was there and lo and behold:


Then I went onto Nash's expecting to see Urien or Gill but they weren't there. Instead was the mystery woman from the cinematic trailer, called Helen. I assume she finds Nash and takes him in:


The last photo I took is a bit blurry (this is when I got found out) so sorry about that. I think this is Guile's new look:


If you guys have any questions don't hesitate to ask.

Sean looks kinda like Charlie Brown in that picture.

Any details on how much fight money you earned?
New levels in story/characters mode?

Thanks for the pics. I assume those stories are quite short if you managed to finish several of them ? A few stills between 8~10 fights and that's it ?

I honestly don't remember looking at Fight Money, unfortunately, so I can't talk much about it.

There were no new arenas in the stories, if that's what you mean by levels

Thanks for the pics. I assume those stories are quite short if you managed to finish several of them ?

The Stories are made up of 2-4 fights depending on which story you're on (Rashid had two fights whereas Laura and Necalli had four) with an intro and outro.

Did you see the full opening & the vocal theme?

Also, Sean should be around 16 as of SFV. How was his voice?

These are simply character introductions, so not much really happens in terms of plot.
I had to skip through some of the dialouge because I didn't have much time so I can't remember all of the details.

Laura playfights with Sean and then leaves their house. She sees Birdie in Brazil and offers him a free meal if they fight. After they fight Laura asks Birdie if he knows any strong fighters to which he points her in the direction of Karin. Karin and Laura fight and Laura asks her if she knows any strong fighters. Karin tells her about Ryu. Laura and Ryu fight, Ryu talks about the Satsui no Hado. Laura finds Zangief and fights him. Afterwards, Zangief gives Laura tickets to a wrestling scouting event. The last shot is Sean sitting in Brazil wondering where Laura is.

Ken, Eliza and Mel are invited to a party hosted by Karin. Ken remembers fights between him and Ryu. They get to the party but get lost. Birdie thinks they're trespassing and fights Ken. Karin arrives and offers Ken a pre-meal fight as an apology for Birdie attacking him. Ken accepts. Ken and Eliza talk about Ryu not being at the party. Mel is about 1 year old.

Necalli's is weird. A 'Warrior Prophet' talks about the legend of Necalli. Necalli fights Ryu, Dhalsim and Bison and after beating them he kinda absorbs them. The prophet talks about Necalli feasting on warrior's souls. I don't remember much of this one.

Rashid's is really short. 2 matches. He's eating with his servant (a huge arabic guy called Azam). He talks about his friend going missing and how Shadaloo is involved. He sees Birdie and fights him. He talks to his friends online (he's constantly messaging them) and one of them (Maya) tells him to fight Ryu in order to see if he can take on Shadaloo. Rashid looses against Ryu (Gouken is with Ryu for some reason that is not given). Can't remember the ending though.

Nash's is basically a run-down of Alpha. He fights Bison, gets killed and is found by Helen (no mention of Illuminati as far as I know). He travels the world and finds some kid called Ed. Ed has psycho power but FANG arrives. You fight FANG. I started talking to the guy from GAME at this point so next thing I know Nash is standing in front of Guile and co. (basically that picture) then it ended.

The main menu hasn't changed much, but some of the options have been switched around. The online stuff is now at the top on the left-hand side. I'm pretty sure it was in a different place before. You had survival, battle lounge, story, options, versus, training, all the usual stuff. Like I said, nothing's changed.

Did you see the full opening & the vocal theme?

Also, Sean should be around 16 as of SFV. How was his voice?

When I got there it had already been set-up so I didn't catch it, sorry.

Sean's voice matches what you'd expect a 16 year old to have. No Brazillian accent, just like Laura. I was satisfied with Sean's voice.

Oh, people were right about Rashid being connected to Viper, cool.

Oh forgot one minor detail about Nash:

He wakes up in Russia and Helen is Russian

Don't know if it means anything, but thought I'd share.

Yeah some of the art was hit or miss. There were some great shots. There was one in Ken's that looked really good, but then there were some that just straight up looked like ass.

The shot of Sean at the end was WAY better though. I wish I could have took a photo but I think they knew I was taking photos at that point so I had to pick my moments carefully.

So if the arcade story mode ends up being canon
Gouken is still alive, meaning he either beat Akuma or drove him away somehow at the end of Ultra 4. Remember, the deal was whoever won got Ryu, so I guess Gouken is training Ryu to use that nothingness power.

Probably how he'll defeat Necaili.

And Ed might be the kid that Balrog saved but I'm not sure. I think that kid was a girl in the first place.

Also LOL at beating someone in the arcade mode but still losing to them. I guess they want everything to be linked up and not messy.

Sean looks lighter than what he should be. Is this intentional or a by product of bengus's style?

A lot of Bengus' other drawings in the other stories were hit or miss so I'm more inclined to think that it's more Bengus than Capcom.
