    Yeah, but he's also keenly aware of how much everyone, all around the world, hates Blanka after SF4. Which really makes me think that the Laura leak may have actually been an intentional thing. If he did his tease and the leak hadn't happened, then the internet would have exploded in rage. And undoubtedly all the whackjobs out there would've overrun his twitter account with every obscene comment imaginable. And unfortunately threats of violence. Or even death(it does happen).

    The leak might very well have been a calculated move to prevent all that from happening. Brilliant move if so.

    I still expect Blanka to be a DLC character though. Hopefully they'll redesign him to not be so gimmicky and dumb.

    Okay, I can be flexible. How about we have two versions of the game? One for offline/tourneys and one for online. The offline version can have Blanka but the online one can't lol.

    So even Laura's trailer got leaked, and to make maters worse a day before the official reveal XD

    Chances are the trailer will come and go as Capcom tries to take them down.

    The Gief is back! Love the Red Cyclone doing his best Linda Blair from The Exorcist impression. :lol 

    Laura looks pretty damn cool, especially her moves. All that lightning and wearing pretty much the Brazilian flag as her uniform, yeah, she's the ultimate Blanka fanboy troll. :D  Wonder if she was partially raised and/or trained by him?

    Also.... bewbs. :eek:

    On the one hand of course I am a little disappointed, I've mained Blanka throughout 2, the later alpha games, and all of four. However I'd be lying if i said I wasn't going to buy 5 and eventually I hope find someone to pick up.

    Just a reminder that the cross platform portion of the second beta test starts tomorrow at noon EST, and will last till Sunday 7:00pm EST. There will be 6 available characters, Ken, Necali, Vega, Mika, Rashid, and Karin.

    Someone made a countdown timer for it, so you can keep up to date.

    I've been having a good time with Mika. Her V-skill is balanced well. It can do insane damage, but only buffs the next throw or command grab you do. The buff is canceled if you miss, or if you take damage. That said, the damage is indeed crazy. Just getting it up to 3 makes her CA do around 75% damage.

    They just added Karin too.

    On the PC beta, I'm having a problem where when training I hit 60 fps, but in the character select screen and when playing online I hit 30 and everything seems to move in slow motion. Anyone experienced anything similar and knows a fix? Or do I just need a better computer?

    EDIT: Lowered resolution fixed it, nvm.

    Street Fighter V Audio Files Reveal Post-Launch Characters, Possible Capcom Pro Tour Events | Shoryuken

    Now, don't get your hopes up about this next one.
    [UPDATE] Arika VP: There’s a possibility of Street Fighter EX characters appearing in future Capcom games, but no current plans | Shoryuken
    Nothing is in the works. He's just saying that if Capcom were to ever want EX characters in V, he's open to the idea. I hope it does happen eventually. Since V is supposed to be around for the long haul, I think it should include at least a couple characters from every game.

    Capcom would probably still avoid using them, if only to avoid future legal headaches.

    Future legal headaches? It wouldn't be like MvC3, where they can't renew the contract.

    So is Capcom still going with free DLC? (using in-game currency to buy new stuff)
