Since Jason was just released, I'd like to hear what you guys think of him if you've had the chance to play as him. I personally am not a die hard fan of Jason films, but I love Jason as a character in this game. I've had a lot of fun and have been focusing on the Slasher variation. He has some good combos with one in particular I was able to get 36% with no meter at mid-screen. I wish that Jason had more high-low strings though. Forward + 4, 2 seems like the best starter as it starts as a low and allows the best scaling as far as I can tell. I've only touched the other two variations in training. I've never been a grappler user, but that may change once I have more time with Jason. The biggest con I have to say is that his normals are awful. I find I usually have to start with a low poke then try a grab or go for a kombo.

 

Next to Slasher, Unstoppable seems like the most fun. Pulling a TJ Combo at the end of each round? Awesome. Damage boosts and heals? Yes please!

 

The main problem I have with Unrelenting is the Lake Mist teleport. The recovery seems slow to me and burning it seems to be the only viable way of use when not countering. As it's one of the few variation specific moves Unrelenting has, it seems like this is too expensive of a move to be used effectively. I like to just throw things out sometimes, but you can't do that with Lake Mist, at least it doesn't seem easy. Pursuit is a cool move, but I think I takes WAY too long to recover from it. It also ends after a single hit to Jason. I can't think of a way to be able to activate it and not worry about getting immediately knocked out of it because Jason is still recovering from using it.

 

What do you guys think about him?

Are you using a keyboard or a fight stick? Just wondering because of the numbers rather than buttons on the xbox controller

I play on Xbox One actually with a gamepad. I figured I might as well use the number notation since we have players on all platforms with different control schemes as far as I can tell.
