I'VE BEEN GONE SINCE NOVEMBER 2011. I'M FINALLY BACK TO HOLD MY PEOPLE DOWN, SUPER STREET FIGHTER 4, ULTIMATE MARVEL VS CAPCOM, SFxT & KOF IS IN THE BUILDING. IT'S SOO MANY MORE I CAN'T NAME.



EVO 2012 ENDED LAST WEEKEND, SUCH FIRE, IT WAS INTENSE. JUSTIN WONG, FANATIQ, COMBOFIEND & NEWCOMERS SUCH AS BALA & INFRIT STEPPED ON THE SCENE. IFC YIPES COMMENTATED AFTER HE TOOK HIS LAST L IN UMVC3. HIS COMMENTARY MAKES YOU WANT TO WATCH & PLAY FIGHTING GAMES, EVEN IF YOU HAVE NOT IN YEARS. THAT'S THE THING ABOUT EVO...

A KID NAMED NOAH, 9 YEARS OLD, PLAYING IN A COMPETITION THAT HE SHOULD NOT EVEN BE COMING CLOSE TO BEING A THREAT, HOWEVER, HE WAS...


BALA FROM MEXICO DID HIS THING IN KING OF FIGHTERS, BUT HE FELL SHORT IN THE GRAND FINALS TO MadKOF OF CAFEID... IT WAS CRAZY...


MORTAL KOMBAT HAD THE SAME CHAMP FROM LAST YEAR REPEAT & SUPER STREET FIGHTER 4 WAS TAKEN BY INFILTRATION. THE BIG ONE HAD TO BE THE GRAND FINALS IN ULTIMATE MARVEL VS CAPCOM 3. FILIPINO CHAMP VS LXG INFRIT.


THE GENERATION IS BACK, THE COMMUNITY IS STRONG & IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS, PLEASE JOIN & FOLLOW, I GOT YOU...

CAPCOM DESTRUCTION


In 1999, Capcom created one of the greatest head to head fighting games ever made. The 3rd installment of Street Fighter 3. 3rd Strike introduced 4 new characters plus Chun Li and Akuma. In 1999 head to head fighting games still had some type of relevance in arcades, however, console gaming was surely becoming the overlord.

Fast forward to February 2009, Street Fighter 4, 10 years after the epic 3rd Strike. This story takes place right between Super Turbo & Street Fighter 3. By March 2009 the game had sold over 3 million copies worldwide. Street Fighter 4 along with Super Street Fighter 4 revived the fighting game genre, most definately no disrespect to the Tekken king Katsuhiru Harada. 

Street Fighter 4 (E3 2009)


Old school popular games such as Marvel vs Capcom, Soul Caliber, Mortal Kombat and even Dead or Alive have reinvented themselves. At Comic Con 2010 Namco & Capcom took it a step further with titles coming soon, Street Fighter x Tekken and Tekken x Street Fighter.

Street Fighter x Tekken

This title is a game developed by Capcom. It will take Tekken characters, which are mainly 3D and convert them to the 2D style of Street Fighter in a 2 on 2 tag battle. I would say a 2D version of Tekken Tag. Namco will also be doing a version in this crossover series.

Tekken x Street Fighter

This title developed by Namco will have the 2D Street Fighter characters converted to 3D Tekken style, which might mean that projectiles may limited but not removed. I'm not worried, I'm sure Harada-san has something up his sleeve. I take all this with a grain of salt, especially with Seth Killian already mentioning Street Fighter 5 and MVC3, SFxT or TxSF even hit the shelves yet.

Is Capcom draining the community with ALL it's new games, DLC's and new releases so close together??? I honestly want to see the Namco version more. I really think Harada-san has something in store for both Street Fighter and Tekken fans.

Ryu (Tekken x Street Fighter)


From a previous blog, we already know the roster leak for Street Fighter x Tekken was a sham. What we know so far is on the Street Fighter side your characters are:
Ryu, Ken, Guile, Abel, Chun Li, Cammy, Sagat, Dhalsim, Poison, Hugo, Ibuki, Rolento, Zangief and Rufus.


From the Tekken side we have:
Kazuya, Nina, Marduk, King, Bob, Julia, Hwoarang, Steve, Yoshimitsu, Raven, Kuma, Heihachi and Lili.


There will be system exclusives, but who cares. They will be disabled during tourney play. What upsets me about this roster so far is that there does not appear to be any real rivalries yet. Of course you have Ryu vs Kazuya and Bob vs Rufus. But really??? It seems as if Ono is paying more attention to gimmicks than characters and head to head competition. No one cares about gem systems and pandora mode. That shit is for the flamers. I want to see Paul vs Ken, Law vs Fei Long, you understand where I'm coming from... Fights that matter to the people. Dee Jay vs Eddy Gordo. I know Harada-san won't feed into that nonsense, straight to the point... Great game.

Of course I will buy any fighting game Capcom releases, its in our blood. We want to see how much better it can get, how much creativity can be used. I know what I would do, but I'm not in charge of that. Meanwhile, UMVC3 on the 15th of this month, this month being November. I'll speak on that next...

SFxTekken - Raven, Kuma, Ibuki & Hugo Reveal

With videos, Ono-san also released a rack of screen shots of the newly added characters to the upcoming Street Fighter x Tekken. There is a new open combo system and the art has been touched up a bit. At the moment there is a rumored character list. Take a look for yourself: 


Let us know what you think about this so called roster... Do you agree? So far it looks legit because the past characters released have been on this list. I will be holding a poll in reference to customer selection later in this blog.

Here are you screen shots & videos following:
   

VIDEO:




This game has some promising excitement meter, however, there has to be balance and rivalry. That was what the game was based on, correct? 
I, for one, believe that Street Fighter characters such as Alex, Fei Long and a original Street Fighter 1 character should be in this game, from the Tekken side I would love to see Jinpachi & Eddy Gordo.

"Go To Hell Michael Bay"

GO TO HELL MICHAEL BAY


I'm here today to talk about Transformers: Dark Of The Moon. 


First off I would like to say "Go To Hell" Michael Bay. The reason I say this is because only a man such as yourself can take one of the best 80's classics and turn it into almost, mind you I said almost, the worst live action movie depiction since Fist Of The North Star. Why do I say this? If you don't know the story of Transformers you are either corny or just way too old, hell, my mom is 63 years old and she know about Robots in Disguise. She doesn't know about them only because of me, but because in the 1980's it was either Transformers, Voltron or He-Man for out crib. That was the best animated television. Later on in the years He-Man was pretty gay and Voltron was so good that the Power Ranger stole their gimmick later in the 90's.
OPTIMUS PRIME

Now, let's not get it messed up, I don't hate Michael Bay, I just said "Go To Hell", there is a difference. If Steven Spielberg did the movie and Bay was just the executive producer it would have been better. I'll touch on the writers later. Transformers made in 2007 was damn near outstanding, with 3 flaws, #1 being The Ark, which is the Autobot spacecraft was not mentioned nor recognized, because for some strange reason the Transformers transported themselves through space to go where they needed to be... Really??? Teletraan-1 can also be included in #1 because that was the tool that gave the Transformers their new shape to adapt to Earth's vehicles and machines of the modern age. Now, I'm figuring the reason they didn't implement these two major components in Transformers history was to adapt to the modern day, I mean it was 2007. Think about this, it's Transformers people, there's nothing to adapt to, just do it... I actually like Shia LeBeouf in his portrayal as Sam "Spike" Witwicky on every film. I'm glad the film got rid of Megan after the second one, I hated her. There was alot of people that were more worried about seeing her than they were about seeing the Transformers. The last flaw, where was Soundwave? 
SOUNDWAVE

He is a icon, he is Megatron's right hand. There was not even a mention of him in the film. The plot was plain and it worked, Megatron was on route to retrieve the Cybertronian AllSpark, but was thrown off course and frozen. Sam had information pertaining to the whereabouts of Megatron & the AllSpark via his Great Great Grandfathers glasses. The war begins from there, bumblebee is Sam's protector and best friend. Great movie, Jazz dies, but hey, you gotta let some things go sometime. Close to original, but not close at all.
THE FALLEN

On to the BS and the reason the pimp-slapping of Michael Bay begins. Transformers: Revenge Of The Fallen. If you are a Transformers Fan, you will know that The Fallen is a real character, but not from the cartoon. The Fallen aka Megatronus Prime was a comic book character. He was one of the original 13 primes created by Primus. The Fallen betrayed Primus and sided with his evil twin Unicron. There were too many flaws in this film for me to name them all, but I'll do what I can. #1, You don't have The Fallen without mention of Unicron or Primus. #2, They have not shown any type of action sequence on Cybertron yet, it's Transformers people, they didn't just fight on Earth. #3, We finally see Soundwave, but not in battle, not even on earth, he's a damn satellite. #4, Bay created his own Transformer characters, Skids & Mudflap, very disrespectful to not only Transformers, but to people in general, one had a gold tooth and they spoke very ignorant and unintelligent. #5, The Autobot Matrix of Leadership is a talisman passed down from leader to leader. On ROTF, it is introduced as 5 of the original Primes hid it in a pyramid by sacrificing themselves to protect humanity. Once again, if you know Transformers you would know that Optimus should already have the Matrix. Anyways, I'm done with the ROTFBS!!! Instead of Revenge Of The Fallen it should be Rolling On The Floor...
SENTINEL PRIME

In June of 2011 Transformers: Dark Of The Moon was released. Of course due to how bad ROTF was Bay had no choice but to make a classic, right? WRONG... He didn't make a classic, he just made a movie that was better than the second one. After I saw this movie I wasn't mad, I wasn't happy, I knew what to expect. When I got home I got a call from godbro and he asked "dude, did you like Bayformers?" I laughed, we immediately went in on the film. In 1961 The Ark (uh oh, remember the Ark???), the Autobot spaceship crash landed on the moon. On board were a bunch of dead transformers, how did they know? Because President Kennedy sent Armstrong & the boys there just for that reason. Sentinel Prime was aboard the ship, but you never saw him. Sentinel Prime voice by the iconic Leonard Nimoy, was Optimus' mentor and the one who actually passed on the Matrix of Leadership, NOT SAM. Sentinel gave Optimus the Matrix right before he died in battle on Cybertron. So how is Sentinel alive on Earth in 2011? Sam is unemployed and struggling to find work, while his new girlfriend Carly is getting paid good money at her job. Carly was also Spike's girlfriend in the cartoon. After being revived by Optimus, Sentinel turns his back on the Autobots and made a deal with Megatron to bring Cybertron to Earth for it resources. In the process Sentinel kills Ironhide. In this war they destroy Cybertron by preventing the merger of the planets to take place. Flaws... #1, Sentinel Prime is dead. #2, Much love to Leonard Nimoy, he did the voice of Galvatron in the 1986 Transformers Movie. I wish it could have been Galvatron instead of Sentinel. #3, Bay, STILL making up his own Transformers characters... Do you know how many actual transformers there are? Obviously not, or of course, Michael Bay doesn't give 2 dumps about it. Who the hell is Brains, Igor, Amp & the Dreads? Who were those Autobots working on the spaceship with the dreadlocks? #4, Shockwave could have put in more work... #5, Cybertron is gone, destroyed. That means the remainding transformers are gone. Thanks Bay, Thanks a freaking lot...
CYBERTRON

In closing, Michael is an explosive genius, great at cut scenes. He did Bad Boys 1&2, the reboots of Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Friday the 13th and A Nightmare on Elm Street. From my understanding he is doing Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. He could give a damn what I say, he's rich, I'm a critic, realist and a fan. It's not all Michael is it? Somewhat, he makes the real decisions and the final decisions. One mistake he made was allowing the same writer from ROTF to do DOTM. Ehren Kruger, I mean he did Scream 3 and Reindeer Games. He did do The Ring though... As a man born in 1972, he should be closer to the craft of Transformers and the ROTF shouldn't have been so bad. The only original thing about this trilogy was the 1st one in 2007. I'm begging for the reboot... So once again, "Go To Hell Michael Bay". Just don't screw up TMNT...

Playstation Exclusive: Cole McGrath

The latest SFxT trailer shows off a new mystery character at the end. Sources say Asuka. Other reports are that Dhalsim, Lili and Steve Fox will be characters in the game. From sources such as Mike Ross, Gootecks and Marn the game is one of the best games made. The combo system is set somewhat of MVC3. Your Focus Attack is now you tag in and out (MP+MK). HP+HK is your launcher. Seth Killian sat down at E3 to speak on the game and the gameplay. Check it out.

One cool thing that Seth does mention is that Tekken characters will have their 4 button set, whereas Street Fighter characters will have there traditional 6 button set. The game is very flashy and because its a tag game you have to be very smart. The game itself draws in people to play, even people that don't play SF or Tekken. 


Seth mentioned that there would be a major amount of characters on this game, they hadn't even began to dive into the the cast. I call myself a creative person, so what I have done is chose a list of characters from each game series that I would include in Street Fighter x Tekken.


TEKKEN
Heihachi 

Paul

Jin

Wang

Eddy

As long as they keep the lines of creativity open this game will be wildly entertaining. Street Fighter has so many characters its hard to choose who to use so you have to be creative in your selection process. Comment and let me know how you feel about the game and who you think should be on the game.
