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. Typically adding more fighters and tweaking the moves and speed of the game. This one added Cammy, T. Hawk, Fei Long, and Dee Jay to the roster. Even after yearsContinue reading “Super Street Fighter II: The New Challengers (Carolina Arcade Museum)”

Capcom Vs. SNK: Pro (PS1) Review

I had played Capcom Vs. SNK 2 EO on Gamecube many years back. I’ve never played the original game though. Not terribly excited to play the original, but I’ll give it a shot. The game is basically the same version as the one in the arcade except with a few new features and whatnot. ItContinue reading “Capcom Vs. SNK: Pro (PS1) Review”

Things I Hate: Ryu (Super Smash Bros. Ultimate)

ThoughContinue reading “Things I Hate: Ryu (Super Smash Bros. Ultimate)”

Things I Like: Ken (Super Smash Bros Ultimate)

Ken Masters has been one of the most famous fighters in Capcom’s Street Fighter games and now he arrives in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate as an echo fighter of Ryu. Since Ken is kind of the original “echo fighter” it makes sense. Like Ryu, Ken controls pretty similar to the Street Fighter games. Though theContinue reading “Things I Like: Ken (Super Smash Bros Ultimate)”

Things I Like: Suzaku Castle Stage (Super Smash Bros. Ultimate)

This one serves as a home stage for Ryu (and now Ken) since Smash 4. It’s based on the original Street Fighter 2 stage of the same name. The right half of the stage is just like the games, flat and boring. While the left hand side has a tall set of slim platforms. ThisContinue reading “Things I Like: Suzaku Castle Stage (Super Smash Bros. Ultimate)”
