[QUOTE] Probably neither of them is racially offensive enough to feature in a game made circa 1991 but I think Rashid makes more sense than Hakan in SF2, design and gameplay-wise.[/QUOTE] Aside from whatever the hell Blanka was, the beauty of SFII's designs is that they're archetypal but joyously so. I can't imagine anyone but a real hardass not finding their particular country's character delightful. [QUOTE] Doesn't his massive size define him? He would have started as a completely different character in SFII because of sprite limitations. [/QUOTE]That's fair! Come to think of it, his huge size did stir something in my memories from the past, but it was actually of one of those huge dudes in Samurai Spirits. After one horrifying round with Iggy where the voice setting flipped into English for some reason before I fixed it, it was clear just how Japanese a design he is, oddly enough. His Japanese laugh and grunt are heavily coded by years of voice acting culture as a direct successor of the Hokuto No Ken-style "biker goon." Ironically, despite the ultimate source of this entire design being Mad Max, the English personality is just indistinctly growly and shouty. [QUOTE] I never noticed how self-serious SF3 was... The closest to a funny character this game had was Necro, maybe? Even Hugo is silly, but in a non-fun way.[/QUOTE] And this is why SFIII is so dreary, despite the beauty of the animation. We've discussed elsewhere how they're all a bunch of "nowhere men" with no obvious culture or martial art, but they're also just so damned boring! I was wary of these guys showing up in SFV, but oddly enough, it took Urien's new shades and the nutty expression on his victory pose for me to "get" him. [QUOTE]At the least he has made nude Rashid and Zangief mods, [b]with physics[/b]. [/QUOTE] ...! [:jojo_doon:]
