Balrog Beginner Guide photo

Balrog's got punches like a truck, truck, truck

Yup, I still hate Guile in Street Fighter V

Guile, it's nothing personal, but I hate you. You just...don't jive with what I like to do. You're very straight-laced and stone-faced, and I like my fighters on the wackier side. I mean, don't get me wrong, I think you're better than ever ...
