Japanese Video Game Commentary-It’s Just Awesome

So there I was watching the latest Street Fighter footage of Pepeday VS Noeun when it suddenly hit me just how awesome Japanese games commentators are. Sure, James Chen and Ultra David are great. But Japanese commentators? They sound like they’re having a nerdgasm every time someone lands a combo. And that… that’s awesome. Just listen to this dude here. Going nuts. Over a combo. Awesome. Seriously. Dude is so happy in infectious. That, I reckon, is why Japanese commentary is still the best.   The gameplay’s awesome too. But then, it’s Pepeday. Of course it’s going to be good.

The Positive Effect Of Fighting Games On Your Life

Fighting games; they’re all about violence, death and gore aren’t they, Fox News?

No, they’re not. Fighting games, like other game genres, are packed full of positive benefits for your mind and your life and are so effective at training your brain that they can even be put to good use as a tool for personal development and self improvement. How? Two words: Decision making. Fighting games are, in essence, a fast-paced decision making activity. Their benefit in terms of self improvement is that they teach our brains how to make good decisions in minimal time. They force us to carry a great deal of information at one time and to make snap second decisions based on knowledge, odds and analysis. . .

How Street Fighter’s Ryu Helped Save My Life

I’ve never written as personal a story as this before. And in many ways I don’t know where to begin. Save to say that in my past I suffered from depression on and off for some time. The worst was several years ago, I time that I honestly never thought I would get through. I won’t go into the causes of my depression simply because it involves other people and I don’t feel the right to share other people’s private matter. What I can say is that going through depression was the most challenging and most painful experience in my...

SSF4 & SFxT Best Characters? RANDOM!

Why Random Select is the Best Character When I’m stuck with work or feeling uninspired and generally sluggish, there’s nothing I love more than jumping onto Street Fighter X Tekken or Super Street Fighter 4 AE 12, hopping online and playing in ranked as that glorious little question mark character known as random select. It’s not to learn characters outside my main, nor to get styled on by beasts. No, the reason I use random select is far more important than that: it gets me out of my own head. I have the sometime-luxury, sometime-curse of working at home. It...

Ryu-Street Fighter

Five Ways Ryu in Street Fighter Inspires Me    Ryu in Street Fighter is, without doubt, one of the most popular video game characters of all time.

Underneath all that glossy shine of fireballs and dragon punches lay something that at the time seemed illusive: a personality, a character, a hero. Ryu was always more than some fighting...
