Why "Baroque?"
Have you wondered why Capcom chose "Baroque" for it's combo extension system in Tatsunoko vs Capcom? While many of us are familiar with Baroque the musical period, "baroque" is also defined as:

Quote:an adjective meaning extravagantly ornate, florid, and convoluted in character or style, or

a noun meaning extravagantly ornate, florid, and convoluted in character or style.

Both definitions, moreso the adjective definition, relate to TvsC because Baroque can lead to some especially ornate and extravagant combos.

Also, I know my friends and I used "baroque" in verb now, I guess to mean "to perform Baroque in Tatsunoko vs Capcom" or "to do something extravagantly," or in gerund form

And there you have it, "Baroque"

cool signature
