    In SFV will cosmetic mods get you popped? and if not is there like a "not so horny" pack? I just...hate it all so much. It's not fun horny. It's not pleasantly horny, it's just gross horny. I want to punch and kick without having an ethical quandry on representation here. And like, poison isn't even so bad, at least it's a theme. But so many characters are just tits out for harambe and ugh. Or just own it and make some bishi men or something, though I know exactly why they never will and it's why Juri got two new costumes voted in. It's so rampant too, SF, SC, GG all are definitely in this category for me. DBZF is ok, and I just don't know about tekken but would bet it also falls into the horny trap. And honestly if DBZF had had more source material I bet it would be much, much worse. Instead the source material means it's just oops all gokus and that's ok at least.

    A few Streamers I watch use some costume mods and I don't think Capcom cares.

    For a second I thought "SC isn't that bad", and then I remembered that I gave them all better costumes

    Yeah SC6 is actually a downgrade from SC5 which while still horny tuned it down a bit from 4.

    The lack of 2P costumes generally made it worse.

    That said I'm not against sexy characters I just don't think everyone needs to be one.

    just on a ground level characters should feel like they're sexy because they, the character, want to be sexy, and not because they're a wrestler who got booked for a mud wrestling match by their agent

    like that's the bar

    SC wasn't that bad early on (like Soul Blade/Edge, SC1, SC2), but it's gotten pretty bad from SC3 onward.

    I know 4 introduced it, but 5 still had clothing damage too, didn't it? That's the most egregious change to the series in this respect.

    Most of the characters in Power Rangers: Battle for the Grid aren't showing any skin at all!

    Well...there is Lord Zedd, but he kind of went too far in the opposite direction.

    Can't show skin if you ain't got any!

    There are worse criteria for winnowing recruits.

    That's because they actually made an effort to tone that shit down from say MK9.

    I remember cause manchildren on the internet wouldn't stop complaining about it.

    But imo MK11 has some of the better designs the series has ever had. Not just graphically but artistically.

    Yeah...God I used to hate her design so much.

    Like...even as a kid I was like what the hell is this.

    She looked liked she was going to jazzerise or something.

    And I was surprised some people liked it which goes to show some folks just have bad taste.

    A coworker I met yesterday told me Spider-Man was his favorite superhero. And he proceeded to explain why. Which consisted entirely of a list of the "super hot chicks" he dated.

    There are people that love those old designs for all the wrong reasons.

    If that's his criteria, I would think Batman or Iron Man should be his favorite. But then, I'm drawing a blank after four for Peter (Gwen, MJ, Betty Brant, & Black Cat). As far as actually getting action, even Scott Summers has him beat at 3.

    I imagine his thoughts on superheroes are not well thought out, as evidenced by claiming that Thor and Iron Man put up more of a fight against Thanos than Marvel did in the MCU. Which, hoo boy.

    I have to imagine he picked spider man cause he's always a high school/early college guy which is just immediately more relatable.

    Mk11 costumes and character designs are just insanely high quality, I have spent an inordinate amount of time in the character viewer just zooming around various characters, equipping all their gear and costumes and just gawking at the design and detail.

    When I finally got those stupid timed event arms for Jax I spent so much time taking screen shots of his complete classic look. My fav character and he just looks so good, and with old and young versions too

    I have no idea how the rights work, but I would absolutely love to see them as characters or a set character in something with a tag mechanic. Or just make it one character that works like ginyu/videl. Can go ham and give them an isabella and vlad von carstein skin too.

    I don't think I want to see fatalities performed on Gomez and Morticia.

    If they were in a fighting game, I'd imagine their fighting style would just be ballroom dancing around the stage, ignoring their opponent and focused entirely on each other.

    A gout of blood from a neck, gomez's head making quips as his body tries to find it. I think they'd be fine with it, frankly, they'd just never show pain or distress from the fatalities.

    Very reasonable but I want them round boys. Plan rn is for sanwa silent 2nd gens so my partner doesn't murder me, though they don't have 24mm versions so my movement still gonna be loud, or maybe keep those with those buttons that can go on cherry stems. Definetly have a minute as I find art to go in an eternal rivals case

    Correction, gamerfingers for the 24mm.

    It totally is! Just be aware that a lot of components are on backorder right now due to global supply issues, including Sanwa buttons. I had planned on going all black for my case and buttons but compromised on red and white. Also, Allfightsticks has a parts picker that helps quite a bit if you're unsure what you need, and they sell the internal wiring already cut and terminated if you're not a wiring person. Some of their components are marked up quite a bit, though, so shop around.

    I especially recommend Paradise Arcade Shop in Minneapolis. I visited them in person when I lived there, and they're just a family run business and super helpful in person and on Facebook. They're also usually the cheapest of the major arcade parts stores.

    They've been hit by supply problems too, like Kreutz mentioned. I ordered their new MPress hitbox back in December, but the acrylics supplier was so backed up that they didn't ship out the parts until this month!
