Blanka’s here


w00t Blanka has arrived, he’s more awesome than ever, and I’m up to the 9th Colossus!

Edit: Now off to find the 10th 🙂
9th was my favourite so far; the journey to it was cool and a little different, with more steps to taking down the Colossi… although once I’d reached the weak spot it was an easy take down

Blanka is coming

So excited, Blanka is coming;

release date 20th Feb!

I’ve just earned enough FM from playing through survival with each character; it seems like the records are wiped each season, which makes more opportunity to make in game currency.

Stoked I don’t have to shell out any cash top play my favourite main from SFiv 🙂

“In SFV: AE, Blanka is living peacefully with his mother, and has adapted well to being introduced back into society. One day, a suspicious salesman approaches him and offers a way to make Blanka famous by mass producing a doll made in Blanka’s likeness. Will it work? Find out in his character story mode.”

Capcom: Blanka Move List

Great to see all of his SFiv signature moves still there, with pretty much the same input, balls electric and all… but then they’ve given him a command throw to fuck with opponents even more, and his V-SKILL / V-TRIGGER / CRITICAL ART are truly wild.

And did I mention that his CA is QCF QCF Punch 🙂

I’ve had SFV from release, but it’s not felt complete without Blanka, 5 more days!

Picked up Shadow of the Colossus at the weekend…

impressive as the last 2 versions I’ve bought, but now with more detailed graphics and intuitive controls.

I’m up to the 6th Colossi resisting searching for guide, tackling each as I find them. Some have alluded me more than others, but I’m still enjoying the experience and challenge.
