One change you should know for every character in Season 4 of Street Fighter 5 — part one

Be scared of Cody...

We're back at it with another episode of the EventHubs Podcast, this week welcoming Mr. Steven "Dreamking" Chavez onto the show to help us go down the list of Street Fighter 5 characters and discuss at least one significant change that's happened for every last fighter... sans R. Mika and Necalli since they didn't really get much.

Since we have more than 30 characters to get through, we decided to split this up into two parts and get through the first half today. Going in alphabetical order we touch on Abigail, Akuma, Alex, Balrog, Birdie, Blanka, Cammy, Chun-Li, Cody, Dhalsim, Ed, F.A.N.G, Falke, G, Guile, Ibuki and Juri.

We broke this list up into thirds and each took point on a handful of the aforementioned avatars, though everyone had something to chime in with for just about every fighter discussed.

As part of our preparation and research, we also reached out to the likes of Tempo|Alex Myers, UYU|Brian F, XsK Samurai, MajinTenshinhan and Cory Bell for their thoughts on a few of these characters in particular.

We found that Cody is definitely someone to look out for in 2019, with a ton of buffs to his offense that are making us very scared of what players like Momochi will likely figure out.

While he may not wind up being the best in the business, Dhalsim also got some interesting changes that we haven't heard too many people talking about yet. Continue on to hear the podcast, and feel free to chime in with your reactions after.
