Ok, first off: is it just me, or does anyone else hate the new way to browse Deviations on the site? I preferred how it was before, with smaller thumbnails. Now everything's IN YOUR FACE, even things you don't particularly want to look at.
Right, now that that's out of the way: earlier today I had a look at the new alt costumes coming out for USF 4, designed by UDON. The theme is, apparently, "summer vacation", although a lot of the costumes don't really fit the theme. Some are very nice (Decapre looks hot in that bikini, but then she's Cammy's clone ) some are cool (I like Sagat's style) Some reference the Street Fighter EX series (Guile as D. Dark and Balrog as Cracker Jack) Some are weird (Rufus, Seth and Zangief scuba divers. And why is T. Hawk dressed as a cowboy? ), and some are just awful (Rose and Viper. And I'm not just saying this because I hate Viper, her alt is really horrendous. I don't know what UDON were thinking).
All of the new alts can be seen here:
Poison's alt is among the best. She looks really good in that Chinese dress. I also like Makoto. She's such a tomboy! I could have done without that mask, though.
As for my favorite girls, I think Cammy looks very nice (but then I think she'd look gorgeous in a brown paper bag). I like that she can look cool without need of a revealing outfit (although I was kind of hoping to see her in a bikini like Decapre got). The same, sadly, can't be said of Chun. Her new alt, in a word, sucks. Perhaps hers, like some of the other alts, looked good on paper, but just didn't translate well to the game itself.
Maybe I'll get some of these after the game comes out next month (I'm waiting for the physical copy). We'll see.
