My knowledge of SF ends at Super Street Fighter II. So maybe someone can help me understand what I'm seeing in that original video?

Does 3rd Strike have some kind of counter/block that does not shave health off the bar? Because that's kind of what I'm assuming happened here. The guy controlling Ken, looks like he… » 8/01/14 5:26pm Today 5:26pm

Hah! Early Cybersex... I remember being 17 and having a fling with some woman (!!??) from the other side of the country. Well one day my dad caught me "chatting" with this mysterious person (who for some reason in all of their pics, looked like a stock footage model). Well my dad grounded me, but in a cruel twist of… » 7/31/14 1:21pm Yesterday 1:21pm

That's why the games were so replayable though! I WAS the demographic for Sonic I, II, III, & CD. I remember replaying those games hundreds of times, because there were just so many hidden areas, and secrets off the spring loaded path. You had to actually EXPLORE to find the Chaos Emerald bonus stages. Mario was… » 7/30/14 12:23pm Wednesday 12:23pm

Every Mad Max film has the most minor of dialog, or like most of the dialog comes from a handful of characters (i.e Lord Humongous gets tons of lines in RW, but Feral Kid has 0 lines. Unless grunts count?)

The Road Warrior especially is 85% visuals. Just saw it again a few years back in a midnight screening, and it… » 7/29/14 3:06pm Tuesday 3:06pm

I will never understand people like that. I mean I play a shitload of video games, probably do that more than most activities. I just put in 84 hours on a new Skyrim play through over the past few weeks. Yet I still remember to shower, eat, sleep. feed my animals, go to work, go for walks, spend time with my fiancee,… » 7/28/14 1:35pm Monday 1:35pm

I wish these entitled people would get it through their heads, that they have no fucking clue how game design works. I'm sick of all these armchair designers bitching and crying about things they barely understand. EVERY studio works on multiple projects eventually. It's called allocating resources, and expanding your… » 7/28/14 1:20pm Monday 1:20pm

The same reason I've been playing them since 1980 or so. Because games are fun. Playing them with friends is fun, playing them solo can also be fun.

I like games for a lot of the same reasons I like music and movies. And like those other forms of media, I need variety to keep me happy.

Why talk about them or read about… » 7/24/14 1:57pm 7/24/14 1:57pm
