Suggestion(s)?

12 replies 112 views Edited Feb 4, 2013

I've been bouncing around characters (I don't consider any of them my main anymore). I think part of the reason I'm so easily frustrated with this game is that I have yet to find a character that I can be good with, fits my playstyle, and that I can stick with. So I was wondering what character you guys would suggest for me and the way I play.

 

I'm very fond of close combat, but I like to have options. If a character is zoning me, I want a way to quickly get in close or inch my way toward them though other, possibly ranged, approaches. I like having some risk involved. I don't want to worry too much about completing complex combos since I already know that's an area I'm not particularly good at. I also enjoy being mobile.

 

Which character(s) do you guys think would most likely work best with me?

 

I will purposely not mention which characters I have played as for the sake of this thread.

Big Daddy is good for 2v2. His combos are short and sweet, and his ground charge goes through everything. Radec's sniper, Evil Cole's grenades, etc. His armor really messes with people. I was playing a Sackboy the other day who whiffed 4 level 1s in a row because he was expecting me to get caught on his electric trap.

Dante has some good mobility and an awesome close range fighter though I believe in terms of mobility options Cole and Raiden are probably the best ones, Kat is going to join them real soon.

Hmm. I might try Big Daddy out, but I don't expect I'll get very far with him. Big, heavy characters in video games have never really been my forte.

 

Dante's cool, but he's very combo-oriented. I can give him a shot, but that's far out of my field.

My best reccomendations are Spike or Sweet Tooth. I don't play them as mains, but I enjoy them a lot when I do play as them. They kinda fall under your criteria as well.

Heading to bed, now. I hope to see a fair amount of suggestions when I get back on the computer tomorrow so I can get some early practice in the game and provide feedback.

Thanks ahead of time.

Well, his side-triangle (charge) gives him the most super armor in the game (matched only by Evil Cole's OP gigapunch, and a few other moves). So, where a Raiden would dash forward and onto the electric trap and become stuck, a Big Daddy charge will go right over it, and continue going. His ground charge will go though everything, and his air charge goes through a couple of things (Sackboys electric trap being the most notable). This makes Big Daddy a great minesweeper for 2v2.
