Video Game History: Auto Modellista (PS2)

Auto Modellista was a cel-shaded racing game released by Capcom in 2003 (a year earlier in Japan). I admit when I first saw it, the game seemed like a perfect idea. Something like Gran Turismo meets The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker. The game had a promising showing at E3 2002, and won manyContinue reading “Video Game History: Auto Modellista (PS2)”

Super Street Fighter II: The New Challengers (Carolina Arcade Museum)

I should have figured the Carolina Arcade Museum would have a version of Street Fighter II. Capcom updated the original Street Fighter 2 several times.

I will say, his moves are certainly truthful to the game he’s based on. You got his hadoken fireballs. And his spinning kicks. ThoughContinue reading “Things I Hate: Ryu (Super Smash Bros. Ultimate)”
