Videos of the championship matches at the end of the post.
Justin Wong wins the U.S. Championship then goes on to beat the Japanese and Korean champs with RUFUS(!) Crazy. But I guess that justifies the mid-tier ranking Rufus gets. Of course he got slayed by Daigo, but he's been doing that to many more people for ages. ;] Some of the chained combos are so insane.
Rufus can be really nasty in the right hands. Fast, long combos, easy to combo in his Ultra. And damn does EX Snake Strike do some sick damage if he gets every hit. Of course any character can be good with a good player.
Jericholic, do you play on 360? If so add me and we can play, gamertag is the same as my username here.
I actually have it on PS3 mostly for controller issues. (But I have to say, after playing it on my friends 360 for a bit it isn't that bad.) Short answer: I have it but on PS3. You can find me on both as AW53. :]
I like the game, and it's amazing how quickly the service runs, even with over 1300 people playing at one time on any given server. My girlfriends' daughter is nuts about the game, and I'm getting really into it.
