Well, Finland has this old tradition https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Puukkojunkkari

On the subject Kensou, something was bit off. XIII stance with "classic KOF"-ish costume, he sounded weird, like he had a flu. Also his projectile was so tiny, compared to rest of the cast.

Kensou seems to be more classic Kensou this time around. I like his annoying and overly mobile 13 version so this may be bad for me, but i don't really mind because it may be good and i wasn't planning on focusing on Kensou anyways.

Interesting read about finland btw. Something swedish people joke about is that all finnish people carry knives and this may well explain it.

im really disappointed with Kensou. If youre going to make him like OG kensou he needs to have command grab and his old normals or else hes not going to be very effective. I dont see the point of giving him crappy XIII normals but not giving him rekkas and trimming down his movelist Is it just me or does his fireball seems like it just doesnt lock down.

I always felt that "classic" Kensou was bit clunky character, although he had some of the most acrobatic moves in the game. XIII was step in the right direction in that regard, but XIV seems to be step backwards. Work in progress I know, but game is so close to release, so I don't expect any dramatic changes. Who knows, maybe he has some potential.

Wait until we see kensou in the hands of skilled players before we judge. All I saw yesterday was people trying to win with kensou cD fireball, hop C+D, random hcf+P and dms. It was obvious people didn't know what to do yet. Someone got a B+C combo down. EX handstand kick, fireball, into rdp+K.

I understand where your coming from though. O2 kensou's basic moves are really good whilst XIII kensou's feel a bit goofy in comparison.

Give some people ample time in practice mode then we can criticise after we are more learned with the game.

Tournaments going to be awesome, el Rosa seemed dominant with Ramon.

Nice read about the Finnish gangs custle, never new stuff like that went down for such an amount of time. Is there any films that were made about the Puukkojunkkari's.

How about this one

Ramon's regular dp+K is no longer an overhead. EX version mostly likely is one though.

Nelson yells out bodega as well. Kyo vs Nelson, the battle of the Bodegas!

That's kind of a okay movie. I was bothered by the fact that enviroments were colorful, while the characters were so grey.

I guess Häjyt (https://youtu.be/hv-LxCMW6Yc) is puukkojunkkari movie, set in modern times. A lot better than Härmä, kind of like a western movie. Both were summer blockbusters back in the day.

Anyways, Meitenkun seemed intresting. Too bad he is half charge character, I want to like them, but never figured out how to use them.

I share the same complaints about Kensou that everyone has. Weird outfit, awful voice, puny fireball... that might just qualify as being butchered. EDIT: I saw his Climax DM and that almost makes up for him being bad all around.

A lot of people don't seem to like Meitenkun but I think he's one of the more interesting newcomers. I might even let slide the fact that he's a charge character and try him out on my team.

Love Heart didn't turn out quite like I expected. She underwhelmed a little.

Alice is simply wonderful. I think she'll be on my team.

I see Ramon in a whole new light after these past couple of days.

Zarina actually managed to impress me. I never expected that.

Wanna see more of Gang-Il, Mian, and Xanadu to form an opinion on them.

KOF XIV Side Tourney EVO 2016 Top 8 Results:
1. Xiao Hai
2. El Rosa
3. frionel
4. AS | Reynald
5. Juicebox
5. Nem | Huevo
7. Romance
7. MCZ Luis Cha

Solid gameplay from Xiao Hai but El Rosa's Ramon is the crowd favorite in the tournament. Hope that Ramon's included on the demo so I can try and learn him.

Kinda exciting final. Ramon looked so fun, I hope some of his timings aren't so strict.

Alice is simply wonderful. I think she'll be on my team.

Alice seems so weird to me. She has a zaneiken rekka hybrid that launches her into the air so that she can divekick afterwards if it's blocked or so it seems. She has a power dunk rekka looking thing. Alot of her normals go in weird directions. She seems like she could be really dumb or bad and i really can't say for now.

Alice's style seems effective and deliberate compared to the other new cast members. Alice looks like the more easier to use new comers but she animates not as good as the others. She does seem a little rushed to me. But if you want to learn a new character in a tournament that would cause problems for your opponent then yes I don't blame them for picking her up.

I guess her style will grow on us.

I prefer the other new characters and the way they animate to Alice, IMO.

Just came across these
