Street Fighter V Beta Vega Impressions

I’ve never been a Vega fan. Never liked his narcissistic attitude. Never liked playing as him. Definitely didn’t like fighting against him and his wall dive shenanigans. Going into the second beta knowing that my time with it would be short, I didn’t even have plans of using him.

But when the buzz started to build about how good Vega has become in the transition to Street Fighter V, I decided to try him out towards the end of my run. In hindsight, I should have placed him much higher on my priority list.

Street Fighter V Beta Vega Matches

Not thinking I would care much for the clawed warrior, I saved Vega for last. To my surprise, I think he’s a great character and one I actually really want to play. Unfortunately, due to time constraints, I only got this set of matches captured on video and they’re not the greatest. Still, more Vega match footage for your reference!

Street Fighter V Beta Vega Combo Video

The iconic clawed combatant is one that I’ve loathed since his debut in Street Fighter II. Never liked playing him and always hated fighting against him. However, he appears to have turned a new leaf in Street Fighter V due to a myriad of changes to his character that I really dig. Not only am I a fan of this version of Vega, but he’s also one of my favourite characters in the game so far!

Dhalsim, Six DLC Characters and a Release Date Announced for Street Fighter V

Lots of big Street Fighter V news coming out of Paris Games Week. For starters, Capcom revealed Dhalsim as the latest character added to the playable roster. I’m generally not a fan of the Yoga master, but I love everything I’ve seen in the trailer, from his new look to the plethora of changes made to his arsenal. Definitely excited to give him a shot.

Covering Part 2 of the Street Fighter V Beta

I missed most of the Street Fighter V beta the first time around. After an epic fail of a launch, Capcom conveniently rescheduled the beta to fall on a weekend where I would be out of the province. Played as much as I could on the first and last days of the beta, but it certainly wasn’t ideal.

Hoping that I would be fully available for the second go-around, it clearly wasn’t meant to be. Capcom scheduled their four-day beta during a time when I would be away with Steff for a marriage retreat for three of those days. Also, during one of the periods where I could actually play, the power was scheduled to be shut off in my building. Once again, I made the most with the little time I had.

Ultra Street Fighter IV battle: Vega (ULikaDaJuice) vs Decapre (jettFTW)

Often overlooked, Vega has become quite a force in Ultra Street Fighter IV. A number of buffs during balancing have made him a formidable foe, and some top Vega players such as PIE| Zeus have been flexing the character’s muscle even before the latest round of balancing. I feel like Vega is at his most popular right now, as I run into Vega players all the time online. ULikaDaJuice was the 37th highest ranked Vega on PSN at the time, which isn’t something to take for granted. He gives me a run for my money in this battle of clawed and masked fighters!
