The Satsui No Hado has taken full form. Ryu's life was spared in the battle with Akuma and as a result, has fully engulfed Ryu with it's dark influence. Now all thirsts for is blood and a fight to the death worthy of his new found power.
Reader's Note: The following story can be played with Evil Ryu's Theme video and Gouken vs Ryu Theme video when prompted to.
After the battle with Oni, Gouken has taken some peace in the immediate area and has decided to go into the closest town to observe fighters of today's generation. As we he walks through, he notices the town is mostly empty at first glance. He see's posters plastered everywhere of a wanted man. Upon closer inspection, Gouken is surprised to see Ryu on the posters! Taken over by the dark hado, Gouken decides to stop Ryu from ravaging the town and re-seal the Satsui No Hado. He hears some yelling and screaming in the distance as he approaches the middle of the town. Behind him, he hears a voice, "Master?? Hey! Wait up!" (Gouken) "Ken? What brings you to this town?". Ken catches his breath and explains. (Ken) "Master, it's Ryu! He's in trouble! He fought against Akuma and was struck with the Shun Goku Satsu[Raging Demon]! The finishing blow nearly killed Ryu but in that moment the Satsui No Hado was released and Ryu embraced it's power!" (Gouken) "Hmm...I see." Gouken took a few seconds for thought. Akuma had already given him too much trouble as it was for him to have turned Ryu into a killer, it must have been before his battle with the villian Gouken thought, for Ken seemed to possess no knowledge that Akuma had become Oni. For now however, Gouken needed to focus on bringing Ryu's humanity back. (Gouken) "Ken, listen closely, go to Ryu and tell him a powerful warrior awaits him for a fight to the death." (Ken) "Master?". (Gouken) "He will not be able to resist....now GO!" (Ken) I'm on it!!" Ken takes off to find Ryu, a look of determination is left on Gouken's face. What if he had killed Akuma all those years ago, would he have thwarted all this chaos.....but now was not the time, Gouken took off for the forest.

Ken finds Ryu with a civilian being choked and risen off the ground. (Ken) "PUT HIM DOWN RYU!!" The dark warrior slowly looks upon Ken, a devious smile on his face. (Ken) "You a real fight?? There's a more powerful warrior than you waiting in the forest for a fight to the death!!" Evil Ryu looks upon Ken, he's caught his attention. He drops the man, discarding him like common trash. (Evil Ryu) "More powerful you say......heh heh heh ah ha ha ha! I HIGHLY DOUBT THAT! I will kill him as well as you!!!" Evil Ryu fires a dark Hadouken at Ken, but Ken dodges out of the way. Ken takes off through the town, Evil Ryu following closely behind. As Ken is running through the town, destruction is left behind in Evil Ryu's wake as he fires dark fireballs towards Ken. The chase brings them to the entrance edge of the forest. Ken quickly hides in the tress. (Evil Ryu) "WHERE ARE YOU!!?". Ken waits for his master in anticipation. Gouken prepares to step forward. A voice speaks to Evil Ryu, "You disappoint me Ryu." The dark warrior looks towards the shadowy trees, a tall fighter steps from the shadows. (Sagat) "I expected more integrity from you". To Gouken's and Ken's surprise, Sagat has surfaced and is apparently challenging Evil Ryu!!!
(Evil Ryu) "HA HA HA! THIS IS THE POWERFUL WARRIOR!? Tell me Sagat....does it still hurt? DOES THE SCAR I GAVE YOU STILL THRIVE WITH AGONY??". (Sagat) "My scar only reminds me of how far I've come as a warrior. I would think of all people.....you would be the one to understand a fighter's spirit is greater than any pain a punch can inflict. You've given in to the Satsui No Hado, your integrity is lost, your fists will have no honor......BUT I, RYU, WILL HELP YOU TO RECOVER THAT HONOR!" (Evil Ryu) "I CRAVE TO YOU SEE YOU TRY!!". Sagat runs forward to Evil Ryu and attacks with a Tiger Knee! Evil Ryu blocks it and counters with a Hurricane Kick! Sagat blocks the barrages of kicks then grabs the dark warrior to throw him but Evil Ryu counters by headbutting Sagat in the face! Sagat staggers but quickly regains composure! Evil Ryu dashes in and attacks with a right and left hook, Sagat blocks left to right then counters with a thrusting kick to Evil Ryu's chest! Evil Ryu blocks with both arms and the two warriors disband.
(Sagat) "Your fighting prowess has increased, Ryu. But you communicate with anger and hatred. Such lust for power will only be your ultimate downfall." (Evil Ryu) "I COULD NOT EXPECT A WEAKLING LIKE YOU TO UNDERSTAND OR BEGIN TO EVEN COMPREHEND THE POWER I NOW WEILD!.....BUT I WILL KILL YOU AND SHOW YOU FIRST HAND WHAT I CAN DO!" Evil Ryu begins to rush in. Sagat stays focused. He stands and closes his eye. Sagat thinks to himself "Ryu, were it not for you, I would have found myself an immature and selfish fighter, fueled by only the will to win. Now, I see the greatness of becoming a a true fighter, one not only with the goal to surpass his limitations, but with the goal to find an inner peace and joy through the art of communicating with one's fist. Ryu.....I WILL BRING YOU BACK FOR WHAT YOU HAVE DONE FOR ME!" Sagat opens his eye right as Evil Ryu descends upon him and Sagat then unleashes his Tiget Cannon! A powerfully focused energy blast!! He fires it point blank on Evil Ryu and a huge explosion erupts from the impact! Clouds of dust and debree cover the area, Sagat seperates himslef from the area and observes the cloud of smoke. Gouken and Ken watch from a distance. An serious look on both of their faces. Ken's eyes show concern for his friend Ryu. The clouds of smoke and debree begin to disappear and a shadowy figure is positioned at it's center. Immense energy begins to be drawn into it's center, dark energy accumilating into sphere begins to glow brightly. Evil Ryu has survived and is ready to counter with his Metsu Hadouken!!! (Sagat) "Damn, not even a scratch..." (Evil Ryu) "AH HA HA HA HA! YOU ARE NOTHING! NOW, HAAA DIEEEE!!!" The powerful energy sphere speeds over to Sagat , Sagat stands as if to face his fate, closes his eye.
[Activate Gouken vs Ryu Theme]
Out from the distance and blinding speed, Gouken appears before Sagat! (Gouken) "Not today!" Gouken uses the Power Of Nothingness to manipulate and transfer it's power to his own, a technique he discoverd in the fight with Oni. (Evil Ryu) "What?" (Gouken) "Ryu."...(Evil Ryu) "Old man....errrr.....ugh.....YOU WILL NOT STAND IN MY WAY!" (Gouken) Ryu, it is not too late to turn your back on this madness. I know you are still in there and I will help you see it." (Evil Ryu) "NO! This hadou......IT GRANTS ME POWER, INCREDIBLE POWER! AND I WILL KILL ANY AND ALL WHO STAND IN MY WAY!!!" Gouken's face displays intent determination to silence the dark hado from his former student. (Gouken) "Sagat, allow me to fight in your stead, I must teach my student one final lesson" Sagat looks at Gouken with a sudden stare of awe....(Sagat) ".....I understand". Gouken knods as Sagat joins Ken on the battlefield's side. (Evil Ryu) " I AM TIRED OF WAITING!" Evil Ryu fires a dark hadouken at Gouken, but Gouken uses his Dashing Palm to bypass and dodge the fireball, striking Evil Ryu in his stomach with great speed! (Evil Ryu) "Ugh! OLD MAN YOU WILL NOT LEAVE THIS FIGHT ALIVE!" Evil Ryu rushes in and begins barrage Gouken with punches and kicks. Gouken blocks and dodges the blows hit per hit. Evil Ryu fakes a right kick and 360's into a lunging right punch! Gouken blocks the blow but the fist spirals throught his arms barely touching his chest! The light touch feels like a bee sting to Gouken. Evil Ryu has developed a fighting style that incorporates a burining sensation upon each hit to maximize pain inflicted on his opponents! Gouken looks at Evil Ryu. A malicious grin on his face. (Evil Ryu) "WHAT'S THE MATTER OLD MAN!!?" Evil Ryu lunges forward again with his left fist but Gouken catches his wrist and directs Evil Ryu's body to his Gouken's left elbow, landing a blow to Evil Ryu's side! (Evil Ryu) "RRRRGGHH I WILL KILL YOU!" Evil Ryu's red aura blazes and the Satsui No Hado begins pouring out of the hole in his chest! Gouken see's the source of it's power and sees the opening to end the fight!
Evil Ryu rushes towards Gouken at blinding speed and Gouken readies himself. Evil Ryu undleashes his Messatsu Goshoryu!!! But Gouken applies an EX Kongoshin, a counter to disable and attack Evil Ryu, stopping his attack full force! Evil Ryu is knocked away spinning in the air. Gouken, with inhuman speed, rushes in to the spinning Evil Ryu. While in Evil Ryu is spinning in mid air, Gouken quickly uses The Power Of Nothingness to seal in the Satsui No Hado, applying multiple key points to act as seals. The act displays almost a dance in magnificence. In the next moment, Evil Ryu crashes to the ground. The red aura disappears. Ken and Sagat walk over to Gouken. (Ken) "Is he...going to be okay?" (Gouken) "Attend to him, he will be fine" Ken rushes over to Ryu, his appearance now back to normal. A scar on his chest of the former gaping whole is visible. Gouken begins to take leave. (Sagat) "Gouken!". Gouken stops but doesn't turn around. (Sagat) "Thank You." Gouken then begins to move forward disappears into distance, a setting sun obscuring his figure. Sagat turns to Ken. (Sagat) "Ken, I will take my leave, but Ryu wakes up, tell him I wish to challenge him when he's at full stregnth." Ken pauses, and then smiles. (Ken) "You got it!" Sagat then leaves. Ryu's eyes begin to open. (Ken) "Ryu!" (Ryu) "What happened..." (Ken) "Ryu.....hahaha! You've been given a second chance man, you've been given a second chance..."

Something incredible has been in the works for JoJo's Bizarre Adventure fans!
Revealed recently at a hands on demo, the company Bandai Namco showed off a playable version of their JoJo’s Battle Royale Arcade setups. Each arcade cabinet is modular for another cabinet to hook up to it. So you could have your very own JoJo’s Battle Royale Arcade set up for 4-30 people! Or you can fly out to Japan and play this in their arcades. The first video is gameplay uploaded from the event from YouTube Channel: Akiba-Ninja. Back to back wins! Total domination!
In the video below gameplay from the event begins and with the spectator/commentator mode you get a nice tour of what the game is like and the different characters. The fact that so much time and effort has gone into this Arcade Machine is incredible to me. I definitely see it getting a port to consoles and PC. Not because it’s JoJo’s, but because it’s a battle royale, there’s enough fanbase for that genre and then you add in JoJo’s name and it’s a no brainer.Read full story...

Eurogamer got an interview with Cliffy B at GDC recently. He tells us what $60 games should have these days...but Bulletstorm in no way, matches that...
So we all know what Bulletstorm is. Badass game with an 8 hour story, complete ass replay value and multiplayer that isn't very playable. Cliff was being interviewed by Egamers John Teti and Ellie Gibson.
Question starts at 15:30 " What do you think about Japanese game design right now..."
It starts about him talking about looking up to Japanese stuff as a kid, but then he goes into what video games should be like in general in todays market. Typed it out incase you didn't want to watch the video.
video and source: http://www.eurogamer.net/videos/gdc-after-dusk-episode-ii
"... it's weird for me to see amazing games come out, and it's just a 7 hour campaign. And I'm like, Guys, detatch yourself from being these amazing creatives who kicked ass for so many years and be objective and look at the market right now. We are in the era of a cautious consumer. $60 is alot to ask for day 1 price. So if you don't make gamers love a game and marry it, you are gonna be a day 1 rental, or a campaign rental. ...."
You need to put enough value in your game. If you have a short campaign, you better have a deep multiplayer. If you don't have a deep multiplayer you better have a 60 hour campaign."
If you are interested in the full video, it is mainly about developing gears of war, hipsters, nerd/street cred that he has to protect and how Nintendo/Mario is his inspiration and similiar to the main character of Gears. Anyways.....
I couldn't help but laugh. Bulletstorm is basically an 8 hour campaign with complete crap for multiplayer. Only a few levels and horrible net code make it easy to surpass. Echo mode is a score-attack of campaign. I originally wasn't going to make a story out of this but...why not? In older interviews he prides himself about being able to play the game and talk about what he wants changed and overall make it a better game before release. Epic jimmy action. I just think it's incredibly stupid, how about you guys? Know any other developers like this? Leave your comments below.
And if you didn't read the review: RENT IT!

Tokido going for back-to-back EVO wins, but a new Challenger stands in his way.
The drama and excitement did not miss again this year at EVO. I couldn't imagine a more exciting ending. Well maybe if Cool Kid had been in the finals for America with such a wild crowd they would have gone nuts if he had beat Tokido. Shout outs to EVO, another great show for 2018!

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.

Canterlot Gardens is currently going on in Strongsville Ohio this weekend and Dev Team ManeSix is on the scene with a special Canterlot Gardens build of Fighting is Magic for an impromptu fighting tournament.
The link above will take you to the live stream of the game being played as we speak. I was told it will be going on all weekend but have no way of knowing for sure.
The "Tournament" seems to be more of a random grouping of players fighting until defeated than an actual tournament with a leaderboard.
The big news is that ManeSix is introducing Rainbow Dash in playable form and from I saw she is kicking ass all over the game. This brings the playable count up to 5 characters in the game with Fluttershy being the last one to be added before the games final version and release into the wild. Addictional characters will be released in updates in the future as balancing is improved with each update.
The EVO 2K build was leaked earlier this summer with only 4 playable characters and has since been rebalanced and improved.
No release date for the final version has been posted as of this writing.

If you are a Star Wars fan and haven't tried this game, you should really think about it!
When the game was to be released, Star Wars Battlefront II was all up in controversy. There was going to be a pay-to-win system in the game. At that point I was already out. Wait just one moment though… right before the game was released EA announces that loot crates won’t take real money and the system was going to be reworked. I still didn’t buy it so I decided to watch a bunch of different streams for about a week and then make my decision. What I saw was people having fun. A Lot of fun and I was in.
I played it pretty hardcore everyday for almost 4 months. I was rank 43 (50 was the highest at the time.) and I had all of the guns and attachments unlocked. I didn’t have all of the Star Cards. Star Cards were the packs you opened up to level up your cards. You could still just play the game and get the ingame free credits and buy the crates to level up the cards. That’s what I did. My collection was solid. Boba Fett was my absolute favorite. He was eventually nerfed, but I still have good chemistry with the controls. Star Wars Battlefront II has been a very solid experience for me. I love the game.
