Street Fighter X Tekken; Not the one I'm worried about...

The recent announcement of  Street Fighter X Tekken (and vice versa) is sort of a scary concept to me. As a Tekken fan, I've had several conversations with people about fighting games, at which some point the phrase, "3D fighters suck," is uttered.  
 
 And for a while there, I disagreed.  
 
I always felt like the Tekken and Soul Calibur franchises were both fun and challenging. To me, Tekken 5: DR was the bees, knees; no projectiles, no super attacks... just a straight fight between a robot with feelings, and a pair of kangaroos with boxing gloves. Just as nature intended. 
 
After the disappointing releases of Tekken 6 and Soul Calibur IV, I had basically given up on Bandai Namco altogether; the inclusion of Star Wars characters to help push a LucasArts game was a heavy burden for a Namco fanboy... but the emptiness felt during the entire playthrough of Tekken 6's Story Mode were the real nails in the coffin. 
 
Now I hear about TxSF. 
 
Namco... I really want things to go back to the way they were. I miss being able to play Tekken with friends, and not have them remind me that they brought over SSF4. I want to look forward to the next Soul Calibur, without having to worry that you'll be including Aang, in order to push a new game for "The Last Airbender," or some other shit that might be deemed equally reprehensible. 
 
But know this: If you can make this game right... Even if it isn't in 3D... without pulling some kind of dubious move... I just might buy Enslaved
 
Later, 
 
RHD 
 
p.s. SFxT is definitely gonna be good. I'm sure of it. I just hope that Pac-Man is a playable fighter.

I agree with you mate, Goddamn I hope these fuckers can do it right, do you'd have tot think they'd take out specials yeah? or they would have to make Specials for the tekken fighters which would just be weird.  
 
I've got quiet anticipation for this,
