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. :]
A defense of PS+: went to play Batman yesterday, and was immediatly kicked off the game with a "saved data is corrupt" error. I am not as far as anyone else who I've read playing the game, but that's still a lot of hours to replay.
