A little bit of trivia here. On the select screen in verB. Below the regular stats, sex, weight and height etc. There is a new addition, the second last stat is the fighters fighting style but, what's interesting is that the last stat is their rank within their fighting style. For example; Akira and Shun are masters of Hakkyoku-Ken and Drunken Fist respectively. Lau is an intermediate in Koen-Ken and the Bryants are both beginners in Jeet Kune Do. I found this very entertaining as it gives more of an insight into their character rather than their effectiveness. As any fighter can beat the other in this game. In keeping with the story (what little of it there is), I'm not surprised that Akira is a master of his style. He's a teacher of the art and gets regular lessons from his father. Shun is obvious, you don't practice something for decades and don't expect to be a master by the time your eighty plus. But, Jacky being a beginner in JKD was a surprise. All he does is train so I expected him to be an intermediate. JKD is more philosophy so in theory you can never be complete as there is always something you could tweek or adapt to improve your style. I expected Sarah to be a beginner though, not because she's weak but because she was never really a fighter before the tournaments. Ie (Poetic licence here) she just did it for the exercise. It was J6 that turned her into a fighter and when Jacky got her back (by beating the hell out of her IMO) at the end of VF2, which resulted in her total memory loss she would have forgotten the finer points of the style (Philosophy) but retained the fighting instincts and techniques (reflex). So from VF3 to VF4 Sarah would be starting from scratch, making up her own moves instead of the ones given to her by the J6 eg. From VF3 the Snap Back knuckle is replaced by the Chop (look in your VF2 manuals for the former) and VF4 sees the introduction of the Flamingo. I've gone off course here but you get the drift i'm sure. In the future when everyone has access to VF4 in the states or, if anyone here in the UK is going to the Casino, I would like them to make a note of each characters rank. So far we know: Akira: Expert. Shun: Expert. Lau: Intermediate. Jacky: Beginner. Sarah: Beginner. There are eight other fighters that need to be a addressed. Adio.
