IPW Topic of the Week: How Did You Choose Your Main Character?

Let's pretend that you haven't played fighting games in a long time, or perhaps you have never played one.  You pick one up from the game store and bring it home to see what all the fuss is about. You get into the game for the first time and you stare at the character select. There are so many characters! Which one do you choose and how do you decide?

For this topic of the week we'd like the community's help. Share with us the reasons you decided on the main character in your current favorite fighting game. If you have a set of criteria that you apply to all fighting games you get into, please share.

What we'd like to do is to create an article on this  which incorporates the points of view from players presented in this topic, as there is no right or wrong way to select a character. However, with fighting games getting more and more popular  there is a whole new generation of gamers out there who are getting into fighting games that are in the situation presented in the opening, and we don't want them to be intimidated and leave. We want them to have fun, stay, and perhaps become part of the community. Giving helpful advice on this could help many players.

So take a minute to share your method. Is it about looks? About moves? Did you decide based on a tier list? Are you a tourney player and that was a consideration? Don't be afraid to be honest! Thanks to everybody who contributes to this week's topic, as we at IPW think it's an important one.

Have an idea for a future topic? Hit the thread in the IPW Forum and let us know! If you missed last week's topic, "What if Street Fighter 4 had 2D Graphics Instead of 3D?", check it out here!

New King of Fighters XIII Videos from A-Cho

Fab11o uploaded a few cool King of Fighters XIII videos from A-Cho today. Now, I've read that Raiden is really strong, but after watching the first video I don't think "strong" even beings to describe this character. The second video has a better mix of characters, but over all, both videos have some really great gameplay all around.

GODSGARDEN EXTRA - "INTERVIEWS" WITH DAIGO, KOKUJIN, TOKIDO, KSK AND MORE

UPDATE: New Marvel vs Capcom 3 Information This Week

UPDATE: Wed Phillips, PR Strategy at CAPCOM USA, just tweeted that there is a lot of Marvel vs Capcom 3 news coming this week, further confirming Niitsuma's earlier tweet. He mentions that we should all keep an eye on Capcom Unity this coming week.

Marvel vs Capcom 3 producer Ryota Niitsuma made a tweet a little earlier today saying he has been a bit too busy to use Twitter regularly, but that there will be some new announcements this coming week -- maybe even a few surprises! We've known for a while that Capcom will be revealing a few new characters each month until the game comes out, and it's been a while since the announcement of Magneto etc, so I think we're well overdue for some more reveals.
