To commemorate the 20th anniversary of Street Fighter I, Street Fighter V: Ultra Edition was announced today. Leaked concept teaser artwork of the project. You can see they're taking a more realistic approach this time around.
"We're pleased to announce another Street Fighter entry, we felt it's been long enough since we actually did anything with the Street Fighter franchise, and it's time to hit fans again," said an official anonymous Capcam representative.
Scheduled for an early 2011 release, this announcement of Street Fighter V: Ultra Edition will surely excite fans.

Can 2018 produce better video games than 2017?!
#1 Red Dead Redemption 2
This game is a former Gouki.com Jimmy Gem Game of the Year. Just recently, well 2 years ago now I guess… I played Red Dead Redemption again and it still holds up and is still one of my all-time favorites. Rockstar only releases new games every 5 years, so get hype! RDR2 is going to be the game of the year. (No specific release date as of this post)
#2 The Last of US Part 2
When the first game came out I did not expect that I would like it as much as I did. In fact, I played through it twice. It's one of those rare games that I played back to back immediately and I can not wait to play the new sequel. Another strong potential for game of the year. (No specific release date as of this post)
Oh boy. EA. The game is being made by BioWare and published by EA. I love all the Mass Effect, Star Wars Kotor, and Dragon Age games, so I am hype for a what seems to be a full-on-multiplayer-space-scramble-mass-effect-shooter-magic-lootfest-madness. So IF that works and it’s not full of buy a loot chest with real money bullshit, it might be a great game. I think we can live without the loot crate system in video games. Good luck to BioWare. The entire internet is on standby, watching EA desecrate and ruin the history of great game franchises and developers. Anthem will be very interesting to watch and play in 2018. (No specific release date as of this post)
#4 Crackdown 3
I can’t wait for this game. The previous Crackdown games have great memories for me. I would have never played Crackdown in the first place if the Halo 3 Beta wasn’t on the disc. But I found that the climbing, shooting, leveling up, and the party system made Crackdown super fun to play. When I wasn’t playing Halo 3. Crackdown 3 will be an easy purchase for a bunch of friends and the game will be superfun to play together. Invite me. (No specific release date as of this post)
There were a few other games I noted, but overall these 4 games are the only options I believe, that can pull me away from the good games I am already playing. When I started writing this list, I was for sure 2018 could be better than 2017. I’m now thinking that maybe it’s going to be a really rough year. What’s up with that new Metroid? Where is the Battle Royal Halo 6 game? WTF is happening to the XBOX console? Seriously tho...
What video games are you most looking forward to in 2018?
Thank you for reading.

Sony Computer Entertainment today announced that it entered into a definitive agreement on June 30, 2012 (Japan Time) to acquire Gaikai Inc., the world's leading interactive cloud-based gaming company, what will this mean for the PS4?
I'm not sold on network powered gaming yet. Having the processing power in the cloud means you don't have to buy hardware, and it means the operating company can upgrade the hardware at any time without bothering you, but the input and display lag has to kill certain genres of games. Would you play an FPS or a fighting game with noticeable lag, for instance? For a single-player cinematic experience, this system would be tough to beat (like Uncharted's campaign) though I think even some action games would need to be tweaked to be a bit more forgiving of timing based actions.
Sure, the internet is getting faster all the time, but that's just download and upload speed... bandwidth. The real issue is latency, which is how long it takes your signal to go from your computer (or device) to the servers and for information (in this case a screen image) to come back again. This is limited by how far away you are from the servers and the speed of light. There's not much Gaikai can do about the later, so they solve this problem by co-locating servers closer to population areas... having East coast and West coast datacenters is common as is having European and Asian area datacenters. That said, I wouldn't expect there to be datacenters all over the U.S.A. If you live in the middle of nowhere, you're probably out of luck as far as latency goes. Your only option is to move to New York or San Francisco (or somewhere closer to them).
Anyway, what does all this have to do with the PS4? Well, for starters, you may already have the hardware in your house now:
"By combining Gaikai's resources including its technological strength and engineering talent with SCE's extensive game platform knowledge and experience, SCE will provide users with unparalleled cloud entertainment experiences," said Andrew House, President and Group CEO of Sony Computer Entertainment Inc. "SCE will deliver a world-class cloud-streaming service that allows users to instantly enjoy a broad array of content ranging from immersive core games with rich graphics to casual content anytime, anywhere on a variety of internet-connected devices." - Source: Sony Press Release
Hey, you know what's an "internet-connected device"? The PS3! What else? Most Sony TV's sold today. Sony could easily put a Gaikai app on the PS3 dashboard... they probably will do this whether or not they release an actual hardware PS4. Not having to release new system hardware would save the company a ton of money. More than enough to cover the $380 million (USD) they spent on Gaikai. It's hard to say why Sonly would have purchased Gaikai if they didn't plan to integrate it into the Playstation brand, though I guess stranger things have happened.
What do you think? Is cloud gaming in your future or will they have to pry physical hardware from your cold, dead hands?

Is this game a waste of life more than any other game I've ever played. I think so. Plus Kevin VanOrd from Gamespot reads my mind. *UPDATED - Editor fucked up.
**UPDATED October 11, 2010**
I fucked up. Credit should go to Gametrailers.com for such an awesome review as well.
Here's what happened: BatRastered originally played the Gametrailers.com review for me while I listened from my computer. I ran over to watch every few seconds, but didn't pay close attention to the visuals. The other night when I wrote this story (possibly after a few drinks) I searched for Final Fantasy XIV review on youtube and came across the Kevin VanOrd video, I played the video in the background mostly just listening and Kevin pretty much says the same stuff. That's why I thought it was the same video.(And I had a few more at this point) I couldn't agree with both video anymore. Like I say below, if I wrote a review now it would be verbatim to these two videos. So check out the Gametrailers.com video review, the original PWN review of Final Fantasy XIV.

The Nintendo games in the clip should be easy for most Nintendo fans to identify. Complete with the background music and sounds from their respective games.
The creator, bornforthis43, clearly put a lot of hours into moving and filming each scene. It sort of makes you hungry for some snacks too. A salad with croutons and mushrooms sounds good now.........
Here is a small collection of capcom games in my possesion. Anyone a fan of capcom? let me know what capcom fighting games you own! and i welcome any challanger to a couple of rounds of SSF4. let me know,Xbox live Gamer tag - "DMeNt1"
