Watch Street Fighter IV's new fighter Decapre go against vanilla Sagat

Capcom revealed the fifth new fighter for Ultra Street Fighter IV this past week and boy were you all pretty damn pissed off. Decapre is one M. Bison's dolls, and it looks like she's more than just a Cammy clone. To prove th...

Capcom is streaming play of newly announced playable character Decapre in Ultra Street Fighter 4 right now.

Like the iconic Cammy (Super Steet Fighter 2) and the lesser known Juni and Juli (Street Fighter Alpha 3), Decapre is one of Bison's "dolls", though she doesn't fight exactly like the dolls that came before her. She's got a teleport and laser knife gloves! Also, she wears a metal mask and quotes Metallica. Edgy!

Here's some history about her from Capcom:

"Making her first brief appearance in a Street Fighter game as a non-playable character in Street Fighter Alpha 3, where she was seen as one of M. Bison’s Dolls, Decapre now joins the fight! Although a partial mask hides a giant burn mark located on this Russian beauty’s face, challengers will be scarred by her quick and elusive scramble moves as well as her psycho power infused attacks, which allow her to share her pain with her opponents. Players can get their claws on Decapre and the rest of the all-star lineup in Ultra Street Fighter IV when the game begins releasing in June 2014."

Watch Hugo beat up Poison in Ultra Street Fighter IV

I hope Poison is going to be able to tag him back when she gets a trailer because she had to play punching bag this time around. Training Mode is so cruel. Go check out this video to see just what's different in the upcoming Ultra Street Fighter IV (aside from new characters). Otherwise, enjoy a closer look at how Hugo and his disgusting bird's nest hair will play.

Ryu destroys some poor guy's car in this Turkish ad

"Insurance? Insurance is for people that plan to lose," is essentially what this gentleman boldly and unfortunately tells a reporter, seconds before Ryu shows up and goes all bonus stage on his car. Should've went with Anadolu Sigorta, dude. Or at least the gecko. Watch Ryu destroy a car in Turkish insurance commercial [Polygon]

You can bet real money on Super Street Fighter IV

Even with no money on the line, I get way too stressed out playing competitive multiplayer games. My emotions run wild. I cannot fathom participating in money matches, though the appeal isn't lost on me. Capcom has partnered ...

Dhalsim's leg's comin' at you in this cool tattoo

I've done very limited research on the topic (read: none), but this Dhalsim tattoo has to be the cream of the crop as far as Street Fighter-inspired body art goes, right? I mean, this is awesome in just about every way. One thing's for sure, Street Fighter has taken the lead back from Mortal Kombat in the tattoo department.

Ken and Ryu make out: Videogames turned romance novels

In Valentine's Day spirit Shutterstock tasked an artist with turning some of its stock photos into mock up paintings for videogame romance novels, full of Austen-tatious fonts and a creepy Princess Peach. I'm not sure why, but I guess it's a novel idea. The Duck Hunt one was out of left field, too. Power Couples : Classic Video Games Reimagined as Romance Novels [Shutterstock]

Taylor Swift just might be the ultimate Street Fighter

Ryu's made an illustrious career out of kicking people in the head, but there's a certain pop star that certainly doesn't have a glass jaw. Despite taking seven blows to the chops, Taylor Swift bounces right back like she wasn't even fazed. Remember: these kicks come from a dude that breaks piles of bricks and old cars in his spare time. Taylor's as pro as it gets.
