REO is back, with what appears to be a brand new series. If the title wasn't a giveaway, this is going to be a series that looks at the broken stuff from past NRS games (seemingly just MK9 for now) and examines just why "so-and-so was broken." This first part is, you guessed it, about Sonya Blade and everything she brought to the table NRS' return to 2D fighters.
What it comes down to is a lot of fancy jargon that translates into "Sonya does what she wants, regardless of your needs". From a Catwoman like hitbox on her 50-yard-long D4 and a strong restand that will prevent you from breathing, everything culminates into a plus on block vortex (not the FGC one) of death when you throw in her 'military stance' special move that allows her to have an additional 8 positive frames on block. There's more that REO covers in his video down below.
If anything, it's worth checking this out with Combo Breaker around the corner. It's been a hot minute since some of y'all have played MK9, and it's probably a good idea to see what you are getting into before you jump in and register. Make sure you follow REO on that Youtube and over on Twitter to know when his next video is coming out. Or just keep an eye on TYM, you'll be sure to find a post here as well .
