I'm watching some Twitch streams of "Street Fighter 6." From what I've seen, it builds upon the likes of "Street Fighter V" (which I never played) and adds a lot more personality. A lot of the long-timers have aged. Ryu actually looks very awesome as an older, grizzly fighter compared to his younger days. Guile seems like he hit the gym harder than ever before. The combination of this more urban and youthful style gives SF6 quite the personality. I'd surely want to give this game a try if and when I get a chance to.


[OMISSION] "Street Fighter 6" is currently in Closed Beta, I believe. So we'll know more about this game well before the game's final version is released and sold. I still think the character of SF6 so far is that the legends will pass on to let younger talent get their shine on. SF6 seems more youthful and creative. This game has maybe the most character and personality infused into any Street Fighter game since Street Fighter 3.

The latest trailers I've seen for Street Fighter 6 and Tekken 8 will make up this post.

First, let me talk "Street Fighter 6." I have not played Street Fighter 5 at all, but I think SF6 is turning out to have the biggest dosage of personality since "Street Fighter 3: 3rd Strike." I actually like the direction SF6 is going with the Street Fighter series. You can design your own avatars in the game, but being able to be taught and such by Street Fighter personalities is great. I also like the edgier, urban, youthful style "Street Fighter 6" has to offer. On top of that, some of the returning characters look great, if older.

The September 2022 video of "Tekken 8" looks promising. I still never played Tekken 4 or Tekken 7, being stuck in the PS3 era. All I've seen was the epic encounter of Jin and Kazuya. I'm curious as to how many of the other Tekken personalities will fare in Tekken 8. Maybe also we could get some new characters to join the King of Iron Fist Tournament formerly known long ago as "Rave War."

Rather exciting times of late for some fighting games.

Oh darn, you beat me to it.

Anyway, I love the Tekken 8 trailer. Why? Because they FINALLY brought back my favourite character, Jun Kazama! She looks wonderful!

Nina Williams is here! She looks wonderful! She still has some of her moves that I recognized such as reverse Ivory Cutter, Shut Up, jabs and throws, etc. I like that now she can use guns for combos!
