    I approve of Adam, and his beard in Robo's ending.

    *Sniff* I thought I would never see the day when this thread would make a reappearance. I'd though that in the aftermath of the great purge we'd all just part ways.

    Can I mention how Adam looked better with a beard and eyepatch than he ever did as a 2-eyed baby-faced loser

    Adam should've been in the game instead of that fake wrestler Beowulf. Adam is truly a hero the hero Canopy kingdom needs and deserves. While Beowulf is in his comfy ring Adam is on the front lines kicking ass.

    I think the word you mean is Tautology. Which means to say the same thing twice in different words.

    Lets move on shall we?

    So I really wanted Adam in the game. Like real bad.

    This is why I don't comment in the Adam thread even though he was my 2nd/3rd favorite character.
    Y'all are just dissapointing, bad company, poor soldiers, weak warriors, smh.

    Anyways Adams gameplay inspirations range from Chris from capcom to Dan from street fighter but I believe the main inspiration for him has to be Metal Gun 3.

    Wasn't Adam supposed to have 2 egrets with him? Sort of like an ice climber mechanic or you would fight as an egret with certain abilities until they were killed and the second egret with different abilities. Once that egret was killed Adam would come with a full set of abilities. I personally don't like this concept because you would need to sacrifice HP to get the full abilities.

    It's more like Adam's 1 health bar is shared between the three Egrets in sections. And while Adam by himself will have more moves available to him, the Egrets as a whole have moves that vary depending on the number of soldiers remaining. So you have a tradeoff of individual power and group synergy.

    Obligatory dump of mechanics

    I think Adam would be like the Stryker or BB Hood of the SG Universe.


    As in, he's the most normal of the cast, and his main power is guns.

    I'd also like to see him have the ammo meter alluded to in his description. I really enjoy resource based fighters and hopefully the tradeoff for having to reload is having more damaging zoning moves available to him.

    Okay, run that through your head again, but this time remember that wrestling is real in the Skullgirls universe.

    Relating to Adam, there was one image from the original thread I absolutely found hilarious but I can't find it, god dammit.

    Someone was talking about why Adam would fight the Skullgirl, and mentioned just to get ice cream for Umbrella. Someone apparently made this image in response:

    Image one: Adam standing in a grassy field.
    "Now was the bakery left or right..."

    Image two: Adam stands in the Final Atrium, looks quite surprised.
    "This isn't the bakery."

    It was something like that. Might be paraphrasing.

    That is exactly how it went but unfortunately I think who was working on that VN closed shop so this is what we got left.

    -Remember when you woke up one day without any memories and a talking murder toupee on your head?
    -Do you remember when you were a circus performer with a magic hat that you used to break people's legs for the mafia on the side?
    -What about the time you were kidnapped, had a mask sewn to your face, had extensive spinal reconstruction, filled with parasites, and brainwashed?
    -How about when you were horribly disfigured then saved with reality altering technology?
    -Remember when you ate a magic rock and the person you took it from had you and all your friends cut to pieces?
    -Remember that one time all the people you considered friends or family were murdered and you were made to work for their killer?
    -Does the time when your mother transformed into a monster which your little sister may eventually become bring back memories?
    -Remember back in the day when you were an amorphous mass of flesh created to serve potentially evil gods?

    Do you remember the time you were just an average person trying to do your best?

    What makes Adam special is the he isn't special. He's just a regular guy like the rest of us. You can relate to him, put yourself in his shoes. That's why I like him.

    I heard that when Adam is on guard duty, the other Egrets leave their shifts because he has it all under control.

    I think the other Egrets made sure he was picked for babysitting duty so that they could keep their keep their jobs. Your career is going to go in the toilet if your CO can do your job better than you.

    I'm alright. I pop in and out to see what's being discussed. Usually not anything I can weigh in on, though.

    Once again my mind drifts to the what if's of Adam's designs. Recently got a chance to play a game that featured Akatsuki from Akatsuki Blitzkamf and started thinking about the shape of Adam & Co's normals and moveset.

    Really wish the previous thread hadn't bitten the dust in the great mechanics purge.

    Anyways, here's some E-Soldat footage and the hopes that everyone is doing ok.
