  • Improved Street Fighter IV trailer looks pretty ridonkulous

    I still play Street Fighter II Turbo on the SNES primarily with my friends if I play any fighting game at all, so seeing this insane trailer is kind of a shock for me. I love the art style and while I’m sure I would suck pretty bad at it, the gameplay looks pretty good. It’s awfully hard to judge without playing it oneself, but you can usually tell if something truly sucks just… Read More
