I actually prefer it like this...way too many fighting games involves characters having to forever hate each other. I like that in this game, it's alot more relaxed and if you keep in mind the Beach Volleyball series is part of this series canon (I assume), then the idea of being able to punch your opponent's face in one minute, and then rub suntan lotion on your opponent the next day makes things kind of hard to not have friendly interactions with each other.
It was great seeing Aerith run around Times Square and Pedigree opponents in the train station. - Strife2 If love can hurt, then surely hate can save. - Altena
