The coolest original content on YouTube, ever: Alpha – Street Fighter Assassin’s Fist
As a fan of the game series, and one who appreciates martial arts, this rocks!
12 episodes of live action Street Fighter 🙂
Written and directed by Joey Ansah (who also plays the role of Akuma), Assassin’s Fist focuses on the early days of Street Fighter mainstays Ryu and Ken. Though perhaps not intentional, this is a clever storytelling decision that allows Ansah to focus on a key piece of the Street Fighter mythos without having to find some convoluted way to include the rest of the series’ cast. It also removes the need to film in numerous locations, a feat the crowdfunded web series likely couldn’t afford.
Article at SRK tells how over the next month Capcom are requesting suggestions from the SF gaming community, on changes they can make to characters and game play on the next game update.
I hope they’re giving this one away free & we son’t have to shell out for a 4th revision of this SF incarnation!
But the discussion at SRK is on more characters; so what can we expect 40 bucks for another 4 and a nerf’d Cammy?
Let’s just hope Ibuki and Blanka are buffed a little 🙂
I’ve played a few versions of Mortal Kombat over the years, but it always seemed to me more of a button spamming game, with over powerful simple moves aka the uppercut. I’ve always been more of a fan of the Street Fighter series.
Anyway I was intrigued with the 9th incarnation of Mortal Kombat & had read a couple of reviews stating it was a quality release. igngamespot
Ever since my early teens I’ve been an avid fan of the Street Fighter series.
Too many college lectures were missed as I was in situ at my local arcade playing SSFii or some bootleg Hyper version. (Remember the fireballs that would bounce across the screen?)
70 British pounds I paid for an extremely rare import copy of the first Sega Megadrive (aka Genesis) console. I then had to wait months for a 6 button joystick to become available. My brother tired of it quickly, but I honed my skills against the CPU players, to the point I could play without watching the screen!
20 years later Capcom release the latest installment of this fantastic series, Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition.
I’m a little disappointed with this being the 3rd iteration of practically the same game. Although if this one improves as much as the Super version did over the original SFiv & the price tag isn’t too greedy then I’m sure I’ll give it a go.
Who am I kidding, I’ll be there on release day!
An evil Ryu & 2 extra characters, for all of the hours I put in online it’s certainly cheaper than visiting my local arcade… plus home doesn’t have the arcade sticky carpets, tepid warm diet coke & an assortment of street urchins, shoplifters & smackheads. Continue reading →
