When Do Crossovers Go Too Far?

When one has an entire library of characters to choose from, it becomes fun to imagine what it would be like if these fictional people somehow found a way to meet. Would their personalities get along? Who would win in the confrontation? Would they set aside their differences to work together somehow for the greater good?

Happy Birthday, Street Fighter!

As of this writing (I can’t make any promises about when this will be published), Street Fighter has just celebrated it’s 25th birthday. I became increasingly choked up as I began to realize that at twenty seven years of age, I have literally grown up alongside the Street Fighter series.

(Not) Marvel Vs. Capcom 2

A hand then immediately reaches out and slaps you across the face, because ain’t nobody talk shit on SC2.

Do You Remember Super Double Dragon?

If your anything like me you’ll play through this game quite a few times. And if that gets boring, play with a friend, competitively or cooperatively.

Chuck Greene: An Unhinged Man Thriving In An Insane World

It’s weird how crazy EVERYONE acts in this game, actually. Take Leon Bell for example. Imagine hearing “You just lost your wife in Vegas so you must suck at killing zombies! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!” If I were Chuck I’d pick up my motorcycle and bash it over the dude’s skull.
