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.Read full story...

Is Yang just as deadly as his brother in SSFIV? Maybe more? Read to find out.
Joining the Street Fighter IV cast with Arcade Edition, Yang may initially seem like a carbon-copy of Yun but has a number of subtle tweaks that differentiate how players should approach him. Unfortunately for his opponents, however, those differences are not all weaknesses and Yang is often just as dangerous in his own way. In fact, Yang is arguably even more problematic than Yun because at least Yun knows he’s a douche.
Yang tries to act all nice so at first you’re like “Yang’s the good twin” but that’s gone in like two seconds after you get to know him. He has this condescending attitude all the time like he knows some big secret of life that the rest of us are too stupid to get. Like, sure, he did read to kids when they opened the new library, but do you really think he would’ve gone if all those cameras weren’t there? And then he ends up going out with that reporter from Channel 6? Whatever, man. He’s in it for himself.
Your instinct may be to let out a sigh of relief when you see Yang on the “vs.” screen instead of Yun, but do not let your guard down or you will come to regret it.

(3x) or (5x)
Tourou Zan (Mantis Slashes)
A series of quick, repeatable maneuvers with effects that vary depending on how many strikes Yang performs. Yang constantly corrects and contradicts every point you make while you’re having a conversation about the direction of recent Marvel Comics films. While these facts don’t tend to change the validity of your overall point, he still makes sure to point out that Sabretooth was originally an Iron Fist villain rather than Wolverine’s just to subtly establish that he knows more about comic books than you and that his opinion is therefore more valuable.
EX Version: After a minor dispute over the importance of continuity gaffs in X-Men: First Class—which Yang liked, for some reason—Yang points out that the Azazel character was not a “weird Nightcrawler ripoff” but is based an the actual character who was revealed to be Nightcrawler’s father (who impregnated his mother, Mystique). This also allows him to point out that Mystique also had a son with Sabretooth so he has en excuse to bring up the Iron Fist thing again.
Yang’s rushing teleport isn’t as useful as some characters’ due to its relatively slow startup and predictable path of travel. Nevertheless, Yang can use this move to escape from being cornered by an unaware opponent, so keep an eye out for it when facing him. If you tell Yang about a band you like, he goes totally “superfan” and downloads every album, then digs up all these old demos and bootlegs and buys tickets to a concert that’s months away and invites you like you needed him to tell you when your own favorite band is playing. Finally, he finishes by posting one of their videos on Facebook and all his friends act like he was the one who discovered them.
Byakko Soushouda (Palm Strike)
One of Yang’s most important moves both for its offensive capability and usefulness is building meter quickly. While sitting around at a party, Yang somehow manages to find some old guitar buried in the back of a closet and then spends twenty minutes putting on a concert on the back porch. You can stay inside if you want to, but the house isn’t that big so you’ll hear it either way. Besides, everyone else thinks it’s sooooo cool and you’ll look like the jerk if you don’t sit and listen to him fumble his way through half of Rubber Soul.
The light version is a fake strike used to bait anxious opponents. Yang acknowledges that it’s “not his party” and turns down requests to play another song. While this is exactly what you want in theory, it only has the effect of making him seem humble and considerate, all the while building anticipation for the Dylan song he intentionally saved for last because it makes him look all deep and mysterious.
EX Version: While not any more powerful, the EX version’s faster startup makes it fairly useful when Yang has the resources available. Shortly after arriving to the party, Yang steers the conversation towards some new song he likes. This, of course, is just an excuse to plug his iPod into the stereo and eventually take over the music entirely with his own playlist, once again making himself the center of attention.
Senkyuutai (Dragon Kicks)
Yang’s uppercut-style move works as a reversal, but it’s forward mobility also gives it the ability to punish projectiles better than most. Okay, so like, whenever you like something that Yang doesn’t like or doesn’t really know about, he does that thing were he finds some reason to turn it into a morality issue that you can’t argue with. The other day, Fei Long was like “ I finally saw Hangover 2, it was pretty funny” and Yang goes “I didn’t see the first one because of Mike Tyson’s involvement—I can’t support a rapist.” Look, obviously no one’s saying rape is cool, he was just talking about a movie that he liked and Tysons’s not even in it that much.
EX Version: Upon hearing you complain about some aspect of your day, Yang dismisses your complaints, insisting that pickles on your sandwich can’t compare to the atrocities that people have to face in Darfur every day. Sometimes it seems like Yang doesn’t even really know anything about Darfur, but you don’t either so you can’t really challenge him on any of it.
Zenpou Tenshin (Flip Grab)
Yang’s command throw does no damage and is highly punishable on whiff, but in return, leaves him in a good position with enough frame advantage to land any number of big combos. Yang suddenly decides one day that he’s a stand-up comedian and sends out a Facebook invite for everyone to come watch him do an open mic at some hipster coffee shop. Yang’s material is all just rant-y political stuff that doesn’t have a real point, but his friends (who now outnumber the normal patrons) clap and cheer anyway because they’re just happy to see their friend on stage. They also all leave in a group after his set, showing no respect to the other performers.
EX Version: Yang schedules his next show on the same night as the play you’re in at the community theatre, claiming to have forgotten about your event. When faced with the option, most of your friends choose to go to Yang’s thing since you’re “really just an extra” and won’t be in much of the actual performance. It’s true that you aren’t heavily featured, but you were an understudy for the lead and worked really hard so you’re proud of it anyway, not that anyone will even know now.
Super and Ultra Moves:
Similar to the infamous Genei Jin, Yang enters an enhanced state for a limited time that super-charges his normal moves and combos. There are a variety of ways to implement this attack, but in the most commonly used version, Yang shows up late with some excuse about his job when you were supposed to go see Transformers 3, meaning that you can’t get good seats for the whole group and have to go see Tree of Life instead (which, conveniently, Yang had been talking about seeing for weeks).
Ultra I – 480
Yang starts a f#@*ing podcast. Seriously. Yeah, he talked about it all the time but it just sounded like more of his “big talk.” Well, he goes out and buys all the equipment and next thing you know, he’s putting links up on his Twitter to download the first episode. Everyone talks about how great it is but you can tell none of them even listened to it because all he does—with co-host Rock Howard and special guest Seung Mina—is talk shit about everyone you know. Fine, he doesn’t use anyone’s real name, but anyone who knows him would know exactly who he’s talking about and some of it gets kinda personal. Besides, everyone knows you were planning to start a podcast months ago.
Ultra II – 440
After having lived there for well over eight months, Yang finally invites everyone to his condo for a get together that he calls a “housewarming” in order to imply that you should bring a gift. This is all the more annoying when, while taking “the tour,” it quickly becomes apparent that Yang already owns everything: designer furniture, fancy kitchen gadgets, high-end electronics, books, art—the works. While you recognize that the entire thing is an obvious excuse for Yang to be all “look how awesome I am,” Yang’s success still stings given that you went to the same school and he didn’t even work as hard. For a split-second, you wonder if Yang really is better than you and the nagging doubt haunts you for the rest of your days.

In celebration of Street Fighter's 25th anniversary, Capcom Unity has uploaded a cool retrospective for the Jimmy who has seen it all, Ryu. Check it out.
This video takes a look at the numerous games Ryu has appeared in and / or made cameos in over the many years of Street Fighter. H'es been in over 30 games since his debut back in Street Fighter. Check it out below.
What did you think of the video? Tell us what you think in the comments. Don't be a Jimmy!
Dan from Street Fighter. Hercule from Dragon Ball Z. Who has the biggest mouth? And more importantly, who would win in a fight! XD
Reader's Note: The following fight can be read with the music video included in this story when prompted to activate it. In addition, the video itself is also quite hilarious.
3 scenes take place.
2 aliens from the Dragon Ball Z universe are seen testing out their latest contraption, an interdimensional matter transporter. One gets in his craft and flies out to space. Analyizing inhabited planets he decides to transport himself to different planets without the need of interstellar space travel. He then arrives on Earth.
Hercule is at a press conference declaring himself the most accomplished retired fighter. "Ahahahaha! Ohhhh yeah! I'M THE CHAMP! Noooo one can beat Hercule ahahahaha!". Reporter: Hercule sir, what about those fighters who seemed to be able to fly?? And it seems you are somehow associated with them?" (Hercule) Uhhh those are just some of my friends who graduated from a magic school in France! ;D, yeah that's right one of them married my daughter Videl and she told me how it's just a bunch of parlor tricks and smoke and mirrors". Reporter: "Oh...I see >.>" (Hercule) "Yeah umm....OH! Suddenly my stomach hurts! Oh um we're gonna have to conclude this later, be sure to talk to my agent if you want another interview. Ba bye!" Reporters: "Wait! Hercule!"
Dan is finished putting up the finishing touches on his dojo. (Dan) Ahh yes! Before you know it, this dojo will be swarming with young ambitious students, waiting to call me their sensei! I can see it now, bowing their heads to me and following my every move! Not to mention the ladies that will come swarming when they hear how successful my dojo will be! I'll be the talk of the town! AH HA HA HA HA HO HO!
The alien has been observing planet Earth and decides to talk a walk on it's surface to observe it's beauty. He see's a crowd of people apparently chasing after a man. (Reporters) "Wait Hercule we still have some questions! And your interview is not yet done with us for another half hour!" (Hercule) "I'm sorry but this can't wait no longer! I have to find a bathroom!". The alien stares at the strange man with the fro as he runs towards him.......runs towards him? The alien tries to run away but Hercule crashes into the alien and hits the interdimensional device and causes it to malfunction! Suddenly a flash of of light blazes out and Hercule and the alien disappear! (Reporter) "Oh no, where did he go. It must be one of the tricks his son in law taught him!"
Dan is laughing away, looking at his big sign on his dojo. He turns around to walk and hits head! (Dan) "Ow!! Ahh errr, hey! Watch where you're going! Hercule massaging the bump on his forehead looks up. (Hercule) "Uhh sorry.....um hey! Where are we? And what is that thing!" Hercule points at the alien. He moves closer to look at him...(Hercule) Hey, are you the one that got me away from those reporters? Haha thanks a lot! The paparazzi sure can be trouble at times." (Dan) "Paparazzi?" (Hercule) "Hm? Yeah, you know reporters." (Dan) "Are you famous or something?". (Hercule)[dramatic music is heard] "........ .......... ........OHHHHHH YEEEAAH! ARE YOU KIDDING ME?? I'M HERCULE! THE WORLD'S GREATEST RETIRED FIGHTER! If you don't know about me you've been living under a rock!"
(Dan) Really...well I've never heard of you! I at least have my own dojo as you can see. And this place will soon be swarming with students, all in line to learn from ME! DAN THE MAN! I'm sure you've seen the flyers?" (Hercule) "Flyers? I haven't seen anything, all I know is I crashed into this little alien dude and winded up here. And besides this dojo is small, I've got a whole gym where fighters practice my techniques all the time. Yep, I even have a whole city named after me!" (Dan) A whole city? HA! You don't look like much to me, though your mustache is decently masculent. (Hercule) "Yeah? Well its TRUE. And you can stick that in your pony tail. (Dan) "HEY! My pony tail displays that even a MAN can have great hair, something you wouldn't know about with your 70's fro!" (Hercule) "Oh yeah!?" (Dan) "YEAH!" The two exchange angry sparks while face to face.
(Hercule) "That does it! There's only one way to settle this, we're both fighters so put em' up!" (Dan) I thought you'd never ask! But I should warn you, I am skilled in the art of Hadou. (Hercule) You can call your style whatever you want, but my world championship belt says it all!"
[Activate Music Video]
Hercule and Dan walk outside to an open area. They take their stances. They stare at each other as if a cowboy show down from the old West. Then suddenly, simultaneously they yell and attack. "YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!" The two square off immediately, matching blow for blow! Dan short jumps for a barrage of kicks, but Hercule blocks each one! Hercule then counters with 5 hit combo but Dan is able to dodge and block the last hit! They break off and seperate. (Dan) "Alright it's time to show you what I can do!" (Hercule) "Bring it on!". Dan focuses his energy and prepares to fire a hadouken! Hercule noticing the gathering of energy begins to worry. (Hercule Thinking) "Oh no, not another one of these smoke and mirrors freaks! I don't really have a defense for energy based attacks except to run! But I can't just back down. I gotta think of something......wait a minute I got it!". Hercule reaches into his pocket in searches for some pepper spray. But instead he finds the present bombs he had when he was first fighting Majin Buu. (Hercule Thinking) "Well I don't want to kill him! But maybe I can set it and make it go off near him and escape in all the smoke. Ahahaha I'm a genius!". Suddenly Dan fires the hadouken! Hercule's eyes light up! He's out of time! The hadouken travels a few feet.....but disappears. -.-' They both stare at each other disappointed. (Hercule) "Ahahahaha is that all you got!?" (Dan) "HEY! It's not as easy as you think! >.<". (Hercule) "Why don't you just call it quits and go back to your dojo!" (Dan) "I'm not done yet!"
The two dash towards each other, but suddenly Hercule stops. (Hercule) "Wait! You know what? I don't want really fight you, yeah sure I just want to be friends, in fact I left you a present over there" (Dan) "Whaaa?" (Hercule) "Yeah Hercule is that kind of cool guy, oooohhhhh yeeeaaah hahahaha. SO, I'll just let you look at your present now.." (Dan)"...............Hmm.......". Dan sees the shiny present 15 feet away. Hercule sneaks away behind a deserted car. Dan begins to walk over to the present. Hercule doesn't want to kill him, but distract him. Dan is approaching and now 7 feet away. Hercule smiles "YOU'RE TOAST!" He hits the detonator and an explosion erupts, causing a whole mess of debree to scatter. Dan is blown into the air. (Dan) "Aaaaaaaaaaggghhhhhh!". (Hercule) "Now's my chance! Time to finish this!". Hercule rushes over to the injured Dan. (Dan) "Wait!! I'm sorry, I'm sorry!" (Hercule) "Uhh what?" Dan bows on his knees. (Dan) "Yeah I didn't mean it, can't you see I'm hurt?" (Hercule) "Uhh here let me help you up then." Dan smiles, and then suddenly comes up with Koryuken! (Dan's version of a Shoryuken), knocking Hercule into the sky. Hercule hits the ground. (Hercule) "Hey that was a dirty trick!" (Dan) "Look who's talking you could have killed me!" (Hercule) "I was only gonna scare ya a little." (Dan) "Liar!". (Hercule) "I'll show my Super Megaton Punch!" (Dan) It's no match for my pure awesomeness and dashing smile!". They both run at each other and swing, hitting each other at the same time in each other's faces.......... The alien that came with Hercule walks up upon the fight, only to see Dan and Hercule both knocked out. The alien has a "you've got to be kidding me" look on his face.
The alien then drags Hercule a few feet away and examines his interdimensional matter transporter. It seems a piece was knocked loose. He re-inserts it and the device lights up. It is now fully operational. The alien then activates the device and holds on to Hercule, the two are then transported back to their dimension. The alien searches Hercules clothes for some thing to tell him more about Hercule. He activates an analytical translator and decipher's Hercule's address from his driver's liscense found in his wallet. A dashing pose in the picture. The alien transports Hercule to his home, leaving him on his bed and then departs to his ship to go home. Dan wakes up where he was knocked out.....(Dan) "Ughhhh, what happened? Did I.....did I win??" He stands up and looks around. (Dan) "Damn, he got away. If I see him again I'll make sure to finish him off! Ugh! I better get back to the dojo, my new students won't teach themselves!". Hercule wakes up to find himself in his bed. (Hercule) Errr.....huh??? H-how did I get here?? Hmm, maybe it was that alien! Yeah that must be it. That Dan guy was sure a sneaky devil, kind of reminds me of someone but....I can't think who. Hmm, well what do I do now? Ahh! I better call my agent, and see what's next on the agenda. I can't disappoint my fans after all. Ahahahahaha!"

FnJimmy battles against Arthvader to see his the biggest Jimmy! . Plus a bonus match GoukiJones VS Arthvader 1 match of death.
Arthvader is the king of laggy games when it comes to online play. I'm sure Jimmy appreciates it when the screen just freezes for a moment & Jimmy can reset to counter the incoming attack. What a bunch of Jimmys.
Vote, comment & share. Thanks for watching.

[UPDATE] This is what I get for being sick during EVO. Development has started. It's just a DLC update, could you imagine another disc? Fans would riot. Unless there is 10 new stage, at least 4 news fighters and maybe some new modes. Ha! I'm dreaming.
I don't know if this is even real. Ono likes to troll us sometimes. Maybe this is the update and the balancing that will carry Street Fighter IV until Street Fighter 5 comes out. EVO showed me that there is plenty of characters to use, you just need to be good. EVO good. Here's the pic.
Here's the tweet
Woooo,we're developing AE 2012 just now! ;) We'll do our best to live up to your expectations! ;D
Well that's it. What are your thoughts. I'm pretty sure you don't want to pay for this right? Considering some of us have paid for 3 versions of Street Fighter IV at this point.
You should follow Ono san if you don't already. There's tons of sneaky stuff like this and of course Ono san always posts pictures of girls and booth babes from around the world. Don't be a Jimmy!
We've all been there. A moment in our video gaming careers that has transcended time to this date. A memory where either you accomplished the impossible, defeated the undefeated cocky player, broke a record or came back from the most hopeless situation.
In this video, it shows two great players playing Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition. What I personally like about this video, is the fact it displays the timeless story of how no matter how bleak a moment, how low your health could possibly be, that even with the seeming idea of all hope being lost, one only needs the will to win.
