Super Street Fighter IV AE: Yun Strategy Guide

By: 30CenturyMan Jun 24, 2011 | 9 Comments

We all know Yun is powerful but just how strong is he? Check out this guide to Yun's tactics for ruining your life in every way possible.

Summary:

Making his first appearance in the Street Fighter IV series, Yun joins the lineup for Arcade Edition and it’s balance adjustments. Heavily changing the nature of the game with his remarkable rushdown gameplay, Yun’s moves are quick and powerful, overwhelming unaware opponents with a flurry of attacks and, worse yet, precise, demoralizing psychological warfare.

Yun’s offense is mainly based around being a passive-aggressive jerk who seems cool at first but totally turns out to be a giant douche in a stupid hat. This one time, you and Yun were over at Chun-Li’s place just hanging out and playing Monopoly and he totally flipped out for no reason because he landed on Park Place when you had a bunch of hotels and shit on it. He like, slammed the money on the table all hard and knocked over everyone’s drinks—it was crazy.

Defense is a high priority when fighting Yun no matter what character you choose. If given the opportunity, he will make a game out of ruining your life and employ a wide range of techniques to make you wish you’d never talked to him that day when you met standing in line to get an iPad 2. He was getting three of them to resell on eBay so you should've known he was a jerk then.

Evil Ryu vs Gouken

By: starlordtitus Jun 15, 2011 | 4 Comments

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.

[Activate Evil Ryu's Theme]

 

 

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..."

Super Street Fighter IV AE: Yang Strategy Guide

By: 30CenturyMan Jul 5, 2011 | 9 Comments

Is Yang just as deadly as his brother in SSFIV? Maybe more? Read to find out.

 

Summary:

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.

 

Strengths:

+ Drives a Prius

+ Makes great guacamole

+ Girls actually like that haircut

+ Donates to public radio

+ Conversational in French and Portuguese

 

Weaknesses:

- Gossipy

- Refuses to watch Friday Night Lights

- Plays a Wolverine/Phoenix team in Marvel

- Prefers Matt Smith to David Tennant

- Rollerblades? Really?

 

Special Moves:

 (3x) or  (5x)

Tourou Zan (Mantis Slashes)

Damage:

L- 115

M- 130

H- 143

EX- 164

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.

 

 

 or 

Kaihou (Teleport)

 

 

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.

 

 

 or 

Byakko Soushouda (Palm Strike)

Damage:

L- 0

M- 120

H- 150

EX- 150

 

 

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.

 

 

 or 

Senkyuutai (Dragon Kicks)

Damage:

L- 120

M- 125

H- 130

EX- 135

 

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. 

 

 

 or 

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:

 

Seiei Enbu

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). 

 

 

Raishin Mahhaken

Damage

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.

 

 

Tenshin Senkyuutai

Damage

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.

Oni vs Gouken

By: starlordtitus Jun 11, 2011 | 2 Comments

Oni has reached the pinnacle of his power. Gouken has the Power Of Nothingness, able to neutralize offensive energy. It is now time to find out the victor of this fight.

Reader's Note: The following story has a two part fight sequence between Oni and Gouken. You can play the 2 music videos when prompted to in the story. Oni's Theme during the 1st part, and Gouken vs Ryu Theme (my choice for the 2nd part for better effect) for the second.

 

 

Birds are chirping, the waterfall flowing below the cliff is soothing. Gouken meditates at it's peak.

 

 

A master like no other, Gouken trained 2 of the world's best fighters, Ryu and Ken, as well as Dan who could win fights if all he had to do was use his mouth

 

 

Gouken's mind focused, ready, he has senses the monstrosity approaching. In the distance, there are footprints walking through the grass, trees begin to collapse one after another. Gouken remember's his brother in the days when they trained with their master Goutetsu, but Akuma was now no more...Gouken's eyes open as he then turns around to  face his most dreaded adversary.

 

 

There only 20 feet away, Oni stood with a malicious smile. (Activate Oni Theme video) Oni: Heh heh heh...hahahaha.....AAHAHAHAHA! Your BROTHER has surpassed you, Gouken!" Gouken: YOU, are no longer MY brother demon! You have given up all that has made you human and for THAT I will not hold back!" Oni jumps towards Gouken and comes down with a devastating blow, but Gouken jumps of the cliff over the water fall and towards the distance. Oni follows. Gouken now stands in an open field, free of obstacles. He readies himself.

 

 

Oni steps forward (Oni) "I am Oni! And I shall grind beneath my heel....all that exists!"

 

 

The fight begins! Oni fires a Gohadoukenl at Gouken!

Gouken prepares to neutralize it....but the fireballs disappears in smoke! It shortly drops Gouken's focus in his confusion and in that moment Oni rushes in with a lighting fast slash! But as a master of defense Gouken barely manages to block it and moves away. Gouken then counters with his own hadouken as he knows Oni's will only disappear after some distance. But Oni then unleashes his Roaring Thunder Hadouken (electric fireball)! The two hadoukens clash, but the electric fireball overwhelms the other and speeds over to Gouken! He dodges the blast and the ground is left destroyed and electrically charged. Oni jumps into the air and comes down on Gouken, but Gouken counters  with a Shoryuken!......But within the air Oni floats backwards! Gouken is left punishable! Oni then charges his Gohadouken and fires it full force! Gouken lands and Hurricane Kick floats over the powerful fireball! 

Oni speeds forward and unleashes a Shin Shoryuken on Gouken!

 

Gouken does his best to block it but is thrusted in to the air by the impact! Oni rushes into the air as Gouken is falling. Oni unleashes in the air his Meido Gohado! His most powerful dark fireball!

 

Gouken lands and looks up! (EXPLOSION!) The ground is destroyed and leaves a crater, the grass is now dirt, and there is a huge cloud of smoke. Oni: "AHAHAHAHAAHAHA! SUCCESS! YOUR TIME...HAS COME!" The smoke begins to clear, Oni awaits to see his victory with a deceased Gouken. 

(Activate Gouken vs Ryu Theme music) A shadowy figure stands in the smoke, Oni looks with curiousity. A voice speaks "I know what I must do!" Gouken LIVES! And with the full Power Of Nothingness has ABSORBED  the Meido Gohado and added it to his own!!!!! Oni: "Whaat??" Oni's face displays  disappointement. Gouken: "ONI! YOU WILL NEVER AGAIN TERRORIZE THIS PLANET!!!" Gouken disappears and appears point blank in front of Oni! Gouken unleashes the full power of his Denjin Hadouken with his new found power!!

 

Oni is taken by surprise and instant attempt summons another Meido Gohado!!!

 

(Gouken) DENJIN..(Oni) MEIDO...(Gouken and Oni) HAAADOUUUKEENNN!!!!!!!

 

The entire area is wiped out. Not a single sign of life in existence for miles. But who survived??? 500 miles away from the blast Oni finds himself in standing, the blast knocked him away from the battlefield. Is Gouken dead? Is he truly rid of his past?? For now he grins triumphantly for either way he now thirsts to find more adversaries to obliterate and should he find Gouken alive, he will finish the fight.

 

Opposite of the battlefield, 500 miles in the distance, Gouken stands amist the most beautiful waterfall. Unsure of his victory, Gouken remains at peace with himself. Oni has rose to a level of power unlike any other, yet Gouken survived. And that was the lesson Gouken has always taught, to concentrate not on defeating your foe, but on obtaining your own victory. To Gouken, regardless if Oni was destroyed or not, this day he would enjoy peace.

The Best Video Game Characters Of All Time

By: starlordtitus Jul 13, 2011 | 9 Comments

Many video game characters in our time are remembered for either being the most incredible, the most annoying, or the most memorable. Observe the characters that we will never forget.

Video game characters have become memorable in the most unique and original ways. We either hated them or loved them. Some were both. Let's start at the bottom with this video. The most annoying characters. Now personally, I've never really been annoyed by a video game character unless I was losing to it. But in this video we see how other gamers, beg to differ xD

 

Next we have The Most Broken Characters. Recall a time when you were facing of against a friend and there was that one character that CLEARLY had an advantage. NOTORIOUSLY. He was the go to character when you wanted to beat someone completely and utterly. Tournaments nearly banned such characters. Nerds would try to tell you not to use them, but you used them anyway because you liked the character and because you wanted that annoying cocky nerd to shut up with a win under your belt XD 

These are my personal Top 3:

3. Algol

The moment Algo was discovered to be a playable character, the French banned him from tournaments. Algol is the final boss character for Soul Calibur 4 for every character's story line. His projectile game is vast with different speeds and ground space to control the zoning and spacing. His damaging powerful attacks and range along with style and teleport technique made him a highly sought after character to learn. And while it was Hilde that turned out to be the cheapest, Algol still struck fear into the hearts of many players when faced against the original wielder of Soul Edge and creator of Soul Calibur. Behold a video of his reign as countless years ago he ruled as Warrior King. "Fighting is my all...it is my existence!"-Algol.

 

2. Meta Knight

Meta Knight at the beginning was a smooth looking character when we all first tried him in BRAWL. But soon after, we discovered his near lagless moves, high priority attacks, almost unlimited recovery game, and a glitch that made him practically untouchable. His speed and ridiculous onslaught on the rest of the cast quickly brought him to number 1 on BRAWL tier lists without question. Here is a video of his absoluteness.

 

1. Sagat

The King of Muay Thai became number 1 in Japanese tier lists before Street Fighter 4 even hit Amercian shores. His massive amount of health, defenses, attack power, and range, gave him a spot in the Guiness Book Of Word Records for giving Street Fighter Champion Ryan Hart a 169 winning streak. While Sagat has now recieved tweaks in the latest versions of Street Fighter 4, he remains the most memorable S Rank fighter of the Street Fighter series. Rejoice with a combo vid.

 

And now a Honorable Mention. Karai....who the eff is this guy!!?? HE'S BROKEN THAT'S WHAT.

 

And now the Best Overall Characters Of All Time. The debate for this is big. We all have our favorites. But who do you think has conquered all and endured time? I think you might agree with the end result. 

 

 

In the end  we will all have our favorite characters, whether they be powerful or weak, funny or irritating. But that in itself is what makes video game characters worthwhile, their versatility. A big Thank You to their creators for giving us these memorable characters.

25 Years of Street Fighter Art Show opening this Friday in LA

By: choke Jul 30, 2012 | 3 Comments | Updated: Aug 3, 2012

New Art Exhibition opening Friday in Los Angeles to help celebrate the 25th anniversary of Street Fighter

Over 50 artists will contribute some work.   Should be an interesting show and I'm expecting a lot of nice pieces and prints to come from this
