“Turbo” Amazes, Rips Off Street Fighter 7 Alpha CE

8 10 2009

Okay, so there’s not really a game called Street Fighter 7 Alpha Championship Edition. HOWEVER, if there was, it would probably look like the awesome “Super Turbo Arena 2” that is the gamersport played in the year 2051, as portrayed in the amazing action-short “Turbo”.

Check out this trailer:

Any gamer who has a pulse HAS to be excited to see this kind of thing. Personally, I’d love to see a feature-length version of the same story.

Mind, you, the story is a little played out: “kid with dead-end life is good at something. Really good. Has a family member with a disability though and needs to be responsible for him. Girl rival sees talent and gives dead-end kid encouragement and a chance to succeed. Epic battle against the evil reigning champion for all the glory ensues. Cut to black.”

So yeah, it’s pretty much Karate Kid for the Street Fighter/virtual reality set. But honestly, does that sound bad?

No. It sounds like awesome meat piled high on an awesome burger with a side of awesome fries.

Not to mention, I’d give a body part to be able to play this game. The time is coming though, and it’s not as far as 2051, says this OtakuDad.

To see the entirety of Turbo (and you should), check it out at Vimeo.


Oh, and ladies? I hear there’s a guy from Twilight in there. I have no idea, because I don’t dig on vampire porn. But yeah. Figured you should know.

Street Fighter IV – Quick Thoughts

2 03 2009

 

I dig Rufus...

I dig Rufus...

While I’m writing a full review soon for another site (and therefore can’t spill the beans here) I’d love to give you peeps my down and dirty quick thoughts on Street Fighter IV:

  • As far as new characters go, I’m loving those added to this edition of Street Fighter:  Abel is strong and ranged, El Fuerte is fast and crazy, Rufus is, well…hilarious, and Crimson Viper fits well into the Street Fighter world.
  • The cel-shaded, comic-book-y not-quite-3-D style was really neat (especially in HD) but left me wondering how cool a more realistic Street Fighter would have been…
  • Chun-Li Thighs?  Creepy and mannish.
  • Apparently no one at Capcom can draw feminine arms/hands.  Everyone looks like they have Trogdor arms.  Everyone.
  • Seth is a cheap fighter of the cheapest-cheapies variety.
  • Unlocking stuff that already exists on a disc you already paid for is well and good if it’s easy to do.  If it takes more than an hour, that’s not cool.  Very uncool, Capcom…very uncool.
  • When I get old, I wanna be Gen.
  • My best character?  Cammy.  Yeah, who knew?
