Games I Wish I Were Better At Playing

Killer Instinct 3 Banner

While growing up, I idolized how well my brother played fighting games. Mortal Kombat II, Killer Instinct, and Street Fighter II were way too tough for me, but seeing Phil take on M. Bison and come out victorious, or somehow land Killer Combo after Killer Combo in KI was like watching a professional basketball player land 3-pointers one after another. I’d try my hand at the games, and while I did develop some skill (even enough in some games to overcome my brother/rival), I was never able to get where I wanted to get. And after a couple of decades I’ve added even more games to that list of games I wish I were better at. So here they are, and in no particular order, the video games I wish I were better at.

Ultra Street Fighter IV Logo

Without getting into a big fuss about the upcoming Ultra Street Fighter IV and the reveal of it’s newest character Decapre, I wanted to discuss some characters that I would have liked to see in the newest fighting game reiteration from Capcom. I do praise Capcom for bringing someone completely new to the battle, but even so there are some other cool fighters they could have included as well. Lists like these are almost always going to be geared towards the preferences of the person writing them, so keep that in mind when you see the list and I’m not including Charlie (because he’s kinda dead).

Sunday Roundup: 9/25/11

A note about this week’s roundup: I enjoy buying games that are both considered classics, and games that simply look fun. Also, I’m a fan of older games, which should explain the amount of old PS1 titles here. Without further adieu…

Review: Street Fighter III: Third Strike Online Edition

When Street Fighter III: New Generation was first released back in 1997 gamers saw it as a mixed bag. The updated fighting system, visual style, and new roster of combatants was seen by Street Fighter loyalists as a move away from what they liked about the series . Players who gave the game a shot saw that Third Strike was one of the best fighting games ever made. Capcom has given gamers another chance to fight for the future with Street Fighter III: Third Strike Online Edition for the Xbox 360. HD graphics, online play, and a fantastic fighting system make Third Strike Online Edition a must-play for any fighting fan. Read the rest of this entry »
