So I don't come across as a sweaty, lecherous Otaku whose only contact with women is when his mother brings some microwave Ramen down to the basement, this blog was originally about how much I hated the Street Fighter IV art style, however, the more I wrote, the more I found it boiled down to how much I hated the design of Cammy, the character I mained back when I was a child on my cousin's SNES and throughout the versus games, so I deleted the stuff about Bison's goofy grin and Sakura's broken arms and got personal with the lady I love the most.
Now, in all those games, Cammy's character model was amazing. While wearing an outfit that made no sense seeing as she's a fucking spy (Read: fucking spy *high five*), her character model was slinky, sexy, spry and, most importantly here, female. Look:
Notice how, in the brand new and totally ugly srt style, she looks like a post-op transexual who must have played a lot of rugby before he had the snip. To me, all the characters look pretty lame apart from the new guys who were obviously made with this style in mind but none of the old ones look anywhere near as butchered and yacky as Cammy.
So maybe, yes, i'm a little bitter: I paid £60 for a collector's edition that has about £5 worth of extra content in it. I feel like i'm playing more against the pad than I am against the AI. I've played against Ken a million times which is so boring. And then to top it off, they ruin my character. Resident Evil 5 had better be good, Capcom, or I am done with you. Professionally.
