“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.

Podcast Listening – What OtakuDad Listens To

10 11 2008

So, I’m a big podcast fan.  Actually, let me preface this with this statement: I used to be a talk radio fan.  WGN (720AM) to be specific.

So, when audio podcasts came along, I was right on board with the discussion formats, with the length of shows (up to one hour as a standard), and more importantly, I was excited about the topics, because the topics were things that would NEVER be covered on traditional radio.

Video gaming was a huge beneficiary to this genre of entertainment, as enthusiast sites and amateurs began to produce some great material, as well as develop a ‘signature voice’ and, by extension, a following attuned to that voice.

So, without further ado, allow me to list a couple podcasts that I frequent, as well as some reasoning behind why I think that you should listen, if you do not already… (Note: All of these podcasts are available through iTunes, but I will direct you to their main page or RSS pages.)
