The most powerful Street Fighter characters made appearances throughout many games. Coming down to the Top 6 was down right close. But behold, the most prestige fighters in all of Street Fighter.
Ryu is perhaps the most famous character in the Street Fighter series. His humble beginnings to his uprising in ability to topple the giant champions of the world made him the fighter we all wished to be. The hero of Street Fighter and overall legend, he is known for usually snatching victory from the jaws of defeat.

As if people playing World of Warcraft didn't already waste a lot of time...now there's a new way!
You know World of Warcraft...the one game that everyone's playing, the one that enabled Blizzard to buy a sixteenth yacht? Did you ever think that the World of Warcraft addicts needed yet another way to spend more time getting their fix? If so, I have some news for you!
Razer, the company that has created a few other World of Warcraft themed PC peripherals (at a ridiculous price point), announced earlier this month that they're prototyping a new gamer-themed netbook called the Switchblade. The Switchblade's specs are unknown, but Razer did show off a dynamic keyboard that is quite interesting; essentially every key is a tiny touch screen, and games will include templates that will give the keys a custom look for different games. If you're playing World of Warcraft, for instance, your keyboard keys will actually show the spell icon to which it's binded. If that's not a cool idea, I don't know what it is - and if it sounds expensive, I'm guessing you're going to be right.
Although the Razer seems the perfect gift idea for any World of Warcraft player, it's not just a World of Warcraft machine; it's a full-fledged gaming laptop in a netbook form factor. Since the specs aren't revealed, we're yet to be able to conclude if the Switchblade will really be able to compete with true gaming laptops such as the Acer Republic of Gamer series (unlikely, but hey, anything's possible).
For more information, check out this video (which includes interviews with a couple people):
What do you think? If you're a World of Warcraft player, will you be buying this? Have you bought any of Razer's other (overpriced) peripherals? And most importantly, does the Switchblade have the potential to create a whole new segment specifically for gamers within the netbook market?

Ever wondered why Makoto's Ultra 1 seems to be over powered? Or how much damage Akuma's Raging Demon actually does. Well Eventhubs.com has put together a pretty awesome list. Check it out!
Below you'll find a table listing how much damage each of the character's Ultra and Super moves do in Super Street Fighter 4. The first number under the Ultra categories is how much damage the move does when your meter is 50% full.
The average values listed are calculated off the max amount of damage the character's Ultras and Super does.
This is strictly a damage comparison and doesn't reflect how easy or difficult it is to land these moves, which is obviously a heavy consideration when considering the viability of these attacks.
It's also worth noting that one very weak Ultra can throw a character's average ranking off considerably.

I decided to start creating character builds because I see to many newbs online
So some of us was excited for Dead Island before release, No? Well I was and it turned out to be a pretty shitty game, that was before I looked at character builds that make this game actual fun.. Yes Dead Island is actually fun, can you imagine?
So the last week I've been playing as the top hat sporting power house/rapper Sam B. Some people online have no idea how Sam should be played and opt for the machine gun approach, not in this build. I'll have you cracking undead skulls in no time.. From Lv1 as a matter of fact. This build looks at Combat and Survival skills only, Sams Fury tree may seem fun but it's about as useful as ...Read full story...

A new letter from the producer details FFXIV's upcoming glamour system and lets slip the release date of the new 2.2 patch.
Set your calendar for March 27. Well, probably the day after since it will likely be an all-day maintenance roll-out. That's the date we can expect the new 2.2 patch entitled "Through the Maelstrom" for Final Fantasy XIV to drop.
The glamour system will allow you to take any piece of gear and have it look like any equal or lower level piece of gear for that same slot that you have. Take a look...
Here she is going to make the Allagan caster robe look like the Crimson robe attained in CT. She's using some sort of catalyst called a "Glamour Prism".
If you're just picking this game up, join us on Malboro server and hit us up in the comments to join our FC. Don't forget to check out our starter guide.
Axton has quickly moved up my list of favorite characters in BL2, his turret action skill is quite good on its own, but with the right skills and weapons you can do the work of two players by yourself.
First the Survival Tree, I'm not a big fan of this.
You can see the relative offensive weakness of this build at about 4:45 in the video I throw a turret on each side of a basic loader, and I still have to kill it myself. I don't recommend the turret without the rocket pods. :) If you had 3 more points you could get the Scorched Earth rocket pods too. So with the 11 levels coming April 2, that's what I'd suggest first. If I did this over, I'd probably go with the rockets over the longbow just for the damage boost, but mag-lock without longbow is not very useful and Battlefront (extra damage when the turret is out for all your guns and grenades) is just so damn useful that I can't really recommend either version of this build unless you get the level cap DLC and get all 3 this build falls apart.
Now the Guerilla tree, the fun starts to pick up.
This is a good damage build with decent survivability. It allows the turret to slag, which is useful and will be even better in the upcoming third play through. The turret also has rocket pods and a shield. As far as Axton himself, he gets to carry 5 extra grenades and his shield will be recharging quickly most of the time. This is a good build that will only get better with the 11 new levels, allowing you to either add longbow and battlefront or get the twin Gemini turrets. Very versatile.
Finally we get to Gunpowder. NUKE!
This build is a great all around build as well, you still get the rocket pods from Guerilla and a good amount of defense, but you get a ton of DPS both from your nuke turret (basically an awesome, rechargeable grenade) and the use of the Battlefront skill. You'll note the Kerblaster assault rifle in the video shoots a projectile that explodes, drops a grenade and explodes again. This works with all the grenade damage boost skills too so this is my current favorite high DPS build. With 11 more skill points you can reach the slag turret too (double up, at the bottom of Guerilla tree) which will make this build very useful for the third play through. Also, nuking things is fun. :)

New characters, iPhone Touch Street Fighter 4 and the National Tournament.
Hello everyone! Today, I have three huge announcements for you all - new characters, iPhone/iPod Touch Street Fighter 4, and details about the National Tournament!
I think many of you may already know about this from this week's Weekly Famitsu, but we have characters from the Street Fighter 3 series joining the fight!
Her rival opponent is Sakura!
Her rival opponent is Fei Long!
(Azrael's Note: The text in the picture says "What an incredibly rude thing to say.")
His rival is Balrog!
Maaaan, it took some courage to get these characters in the game. Mostly because they come from a game system that featured parries. They are very popular with everyone, and our development staff also wanted to give them a spin in the world of Street Fighter 4! I don't have to tell you though that adjusting them... yeah, vomiting blood levels.
So, that kunai I've been teasing you with all along... of course that was Ibuki's!
This is her Ultra II, where she showers you in a rain of kunai.
And for all of you who used Dudley in Street Fighter 3, I gotta tell you - you can throw the rose in Super Street Fighter 4 as well!
The move's name is "Rose of Victory". While it doesn't do any damage, when it hits it causes the opponent to pause briefly, giving you a change to get in there and attack.
And last we have a little bit about Makoto. While this has nothing to do with her moves... for her voice recording and her alternate costume, Makoto was the hardest out of all the characters, by far.
Especially her voice recording. From Third Strike, Makoto has used a very country dialect. So this time around, we got a professional in country dialect to help us, and it took us an unprecedented number of takes, but we got it done. Also, her voice actor is the same from Third Strike, Ms. Makoto Tsumura! She did great work for us without complaining even once.
These guy's Ultra I, Ultra II, and sample voices are all on the official site under Characters, so go check em out and have fun training with them in your head!
Well then, let's get to today's second news point. I think there are a lot of people who already know about this as well! Our development staff has secretly worked on a version of Street Fighter 4 for the iPhone/iPod Touch, and we're finally pulling the curtains back on it!
Unfortunately, there will be no arcade stick for this, but with Capcom's virtual pad, once you get used to it you'll be pulling off commands in no time!
And of course, you'll be able to enjoy random battles! With Bluetooth, you can take on those stronger than you at any time!
For those who know SFII but are unfamiliar with Street Fighter 4, we have an original mode The Dojo to help you become stronger!
This is the Trial Menu for the iPhone/iPod Touch version. Use this dojo to perfect your skills!
Sale date is planned for March. While you won't be able to use all characters from Street Fighter 4, we will have more detailed info about the available characters released in the coming days, so stay tuned for that!
So everyone, put Street Fighter 4 on your iPhone/iPod Touch and enjoy heated battles around town, at work, or at school!
And for today's last announcement, with the Qualifiers entering into the final half, I'd like to announce details about the Street Fighter 4 National Tournament!
First up is the brackets. This time, we have 9 regional qualifiers, 2 spots for the dream team, and 2 spots for last-chance qualifiers. That leaves one mystery spot, for a total of 14 finalists to challenge for the title of strongest in Japan!
Yep, 2 last-chance spots. This won't be a lottery, we'll have a tournament for it. So if you want to participate, get a team together and wait for further details. Right now we are still deciding on the meeting time and what not!
And now, about the next stage. At last year's tournament, we had as special guests Ryu's voice actor Hiroki Takahashi, Ken's voice actor Yuji Kishi, and Sakura's voice actor Misato Fukuen. This time around, our special guests will be Guile's voice actor Hiroki Yasumoto, Viper's voice actor Mie Sonozaki, and Juri's voice actor Eri Kitamura!
And we'll also have Lil Ono up there as well... just what kind of crazy stories will they share?! Its a special stage that's sure to be a lot of fun. To enjoy it together with us, please come to the tournament!
Yep, come out to the tournament! And for those of you who want to see high-level fighting with your own eyes, we have extra-special seats prepared just for you! This is a special seat that gives you a great view of both the fighting, as well as the special stage. And there's only 100 of them.
Those 100 seats aren't first-come, first-serve. If they were... we'd have some real fights on our hands! So! We are taking applicants for them on our Official Site's National Tournament Page! After a strict lottery, 100 lucky fans will be chosen!
The application period is from now until March 3rd (Wednesday). Read the Rules of Entry, get pumped up and please enter! We're waiting for your entry!
Even if you don't get the special seats, of course we have standing room available for you to view the action.
We also have other important information about the National Tournament Event on the information page, so be sure to read it at least once.
Well, that's about it for today's news announcements, right?
... Whoops, got one more! The Collectors Package is currently under development!
This is the character soundtrack collection plus all-promotional video collection! The Chun-Li and Juri label is pretty nice, isn't it?
But making this label actually took quite a bit of work. Please take a look at these three images.
You may not understand well, but these three images are slightly different. Take a look at the one on the far right. Its not that its a bad picture or bad lighting. If we just put the illustration of Juri on top of the label, this is what happens. But its not very pretty, is it?
So then, we put white paper under the illustration, and the labels in the center and the left are the result. For the one in the middle, the white is at 50%. That means we put the illustration on top of semi-transparent white paper. The one on the left is 100% white - we put the illustration on top of the fully white paper.
You can see the illustration most clearly on the 100% white, but it looks too much like a toy. You won't really appreciate the hatching touch of the picture. So that's why we'll be manufacturing it on the 50% white version!
You may not care about such small details, but everyone here has put our heads together to come up with something we can, in good confidence, say is the best, even for these little things. So we hope you have high expectations for us!
Well then, that's all for today's news. I'm worried it might have been a little too much, but right now we're in the middle of getting the most pumped up for Super Street Fighter 4 we can get!
Thanks for sticking with me until you were almost out of breath! See you again next week!

Choose your destiny with three different new mutants and powers. Brotherhood or X-Men? Featuring a ton of your favorite characters and an original story. Can this X-Men game do what Batman Arkham City did or do we just have another 90's remake?
X-men Destiny review.
In X-men Destiny you choose from 3 different mutants, who are all attending the same mutant/human rally at the beginning of the game. I choose Aimi, the chick. I don't like watching the dudes walk around in third person games, I'd rather look at some hot graphical ass. Let me tell you, there are a few shots -depending on which suit Aimi is wearing- of that snatch on this chick and its unPWNievable. Ok so, the mutant rally gets attacked. Everybody thinks Magneto is behind it. BTW, Professor X is dead and the school is gone. Cyclops and the White Queen are running the show. The attack happens, you're right in the middle and here we go. Different mutants start asking you for help, like Toad, Surge, Mystique, and even my personal favorite Gambit. Some are literally right around the corner from the last. This to me didn't make any sense in the game. You're up on the streets and Cyclops tells you to go look for Wolverine in the subway or something. You smash through the ground, take 10 steps and Wolverine is right there. Cyclops could have taken two seconds and came down there with me, I did all the hard work of smashing through the street.
The story seems to take place during a few hours, there's no sense of timeline whatsoever. The setting from the city never changes, except for going into a subway or a factory that are all along this linear path. You meet a ton of X-Men and Brotherhood mutants and you can choose to help whoever you like. Brotherhood all the way for me, fuck that good shit. This turns out to be irrelevant as the story goes on. The only difference is that instead of fighting along side Brotherhood during certain parts of the game, I would have done it with X-men instead. Boring. Some fights and side missions you can't get to, unless you do the dialog trees. The dialog trees are UNSKIPPABLE at all times. Some save points will put you before X-tremely long and boring chats with different mutants. Like Colossus, I had to listen and watch that sequence like 20 times.
The voice acting isn't great either. One of those where two people talking to each other, laid their audio tracks separately. So it sounds like taking turns talking into a mic and not having an actual conversation. Mix that in with the strange ambient sounds of the game that would drop in and out depending on who was speaking. I imagine because the developers just cut and paste some of that audio, cancelling out other sounds and I don't know anymore. People don't test shit enough. Steve Blum makes an appearance and voices Wolverine and Pyro. Steve has been the voice of since the show Wolverine and the X-men and is also in MvC3. That's the extent of the excitement for the voice acting in this game.
What you got here is something of a mix between Marvel Ultimate Alliance, Batman Arkham City and Mass Effect. Well that's what I was saying when I first sat down with this game, let me try to explain. MUA was a top down beat-em up. Batman had you bouncing off enemies while you beat them up to raise your combo counter. Mass Effect gave you options on how to level up certain powers. The ME comparison is just a keyword fish. Here's the major problems and I'm only going to comment on playing with Aimi, I don't know how the other characters would have worked or the other mutant powers you're offered at the beginning of the game. You get the option to level up these little 2, 3, 4, hit combos, but wait, that's it, they don't chain with anything else. You get mutant abilities, for shadow/phasing I choose stuff like appearing behind enemies and striking them. You could level that up 3 times with experience you get from Jimmys you beat up. Some of that stuff would chain, but I never got any really high combos until my character was maxed and could just fly around in demon form raiping the field.
I'm starting to lose my mind trying to recall some of this game. The Raptr says I only played it for 9 hours. It seemed like 90. 9 hours is for $60 is a big negative. There might be some replay value here if you wanted to use the other mutants and try out the other powers, but the game is so slow to start. You don't get any cool powers until real late in the game. The enemies all look the same, they all look like Ice Climbers. Then you got the flamethrower Jimmys and the Geth looking ED-209 mechs. Of course zombies, what game doesn't have zombie levels anymore. You do get to fight X-men and Brotherhood mutants and I guess that's kinda cool. Wolverine, Magneto, Pyro, just to name a few. You also get to fight a Sentinel and that's pretty sweet. Some parts of the game look like great ideas, but the overall delivery is a pretty big sad face.
There's no co-op and there's no multiplayer. There isn't much replay value here at all. You can play as the other mutants and with the different powers, but the game is so boring, I don't know if that would justify. I don't want to play it anymore. There's challenge rooms that you can replay through the load screen, but only ones you've opened up in the campaign. Oh and every time you do a challenge room, the game bounces you back out to the main menu and you have to go through a bunch of load screens again. Oh god before I forget, X-Men destiny has the worst save systems I've even seen. The game saves randomly, almost always right BEFORE a long cutscene or chatscene you can't skip and there is NO manual saving. I would have had a completely different experience if I could have saved it myself, hell I probably would have beat the first night.
X-men Destiny is not worth $60 bucks that's for sure. In fact according to the Gouki.com PricePWNr, the price has already dropped below $48 bucks and is currently available for the PS3 at $46.77. I still wouldn't say its worth it. It'll be below $40 soon enough, maybe even below $30 before the holidays. So if you haven't picked up X-men Destiny and still want to play it after everything I've told you above, just wait for the price to drop in a few weeks. X-mode? WTF is an X-mode? Push the left bumper? I never used that move once. Nubfarm.
And Silicon Knights been making games for a long time too.
X-Men Destiny gets a Rent it! From me Jimmy. The game is bland and lacks depth and FUN. As an X-Men fan, I did find some of it interesting and I did beat it on the hardest difficulty. So maybe some other X-Men fans would get a kick out of this game, play it on normal and have a good time. Lets see what the sequel -if there is one- improves, because this game could have some potential. Don't be a Jimmy!

Does Kratos get what he wants?
You’ll just have to buy, play, and find out. Here we are. A game developed from Sony Santa Monica, and published by Sony Computer Entertainment. The final chapter in the Kratos’ God of War’s series, a story of vengeance, betrayal, and revenge. Let’s break it down to help those that are into the main highlights.
Story: The first two God of War games were intense, engrossing, and interactive. Nothing has changed. Kratos is still looking for his revenge for the Gods, which have betrayed him and their words. It start off where GoW2’s cliff hanger and what a way to start off! You’re on top of a Titan, climbing Mountain Olympus, looking to end the life of Zeus. With four main Gods and other Titan, the story keeps you wanting more. Why does Zeus do the things he does? Why does Gaia help Kratos? Why does Kratos do the thing he does? And it goes on! You’ll be emerresed in this telling of tale.
Gameplay: This is an honest, to bare bones, hack and slash, action adventure. But with massive substance to separate its self from the rest of its kind. With normal attack, heavy attack, magic, magic specific weapons, moves, combo to moves, you’ll be sure to hit 1000 hit combo with understanding of both kind. The platforming segment are good with no sense of ANY kind of delay. Each weapon has it’s own magic, so you won’t have to fumble around looking for the magic. Each weapon can be upgraded numerous times, about five. Each giving you new combo skill and magic. So points/orbs that you get from defeating from enemy, will increase your death count.
Graphics: Alright you graphic whores, here is the reason you bought this George Forman grill look alike. The game runs smooth with little to no hickups! The detail in some animal are believable that you think the team, of Santa Monica Studio, have met the fearsome beast! Kratos is fully detailed to the teeth. I mean you can see when he gets man and went he gets pissed!! The fights in the backgrounds in certain sections, are a beautiful landscape of its own. In one section, you could be climbing a mountain and there will a moment went your jaw drops and say “Hoe S***! Damn!!” The detail are insane even if you run it at 720P.
Sound: Blood, head being crushed, cries of you enemy, all checked and accounted for. The voice acting is fine enough to push you to hear more. Although this is where I’ll nip pick. After some combo executed, Kratos foot step seem to disappear. Maybe that’s just me not having Dolby Digital surround sound but still. That’s all I got for that.
Replayability: Yup. Keep playing this game a few more rounds. Once you beat the game, you can use some items that you couldn’t use the first time and it makes the game good. You have Titan mode, which you’ll die from as the game makes fun of you, and Challenge of Olympus. These modes will seriously test your skills as a gamer.
Verdict: Buy it! Buy the bloody thing. It will increase your testosterone level ten folds. You’ll grow hair on your chest and back. Don’t be a Jimmy!!
