Why Penis Why
Editor's note: In an internal staff email us old-timers were just laughing about the absurdity of this super fanboy article I wrote back in 2007 voicing my disgust with the redesigned Street Fighter. I've since grown accustom...
Sounds pretty sweet
Ultra Street Fighter IV is still getting updated, and the newest mode to hit the game will be the Omega Mode. Capcom notes that this severely mixes up character's normal and special moves. Characters will play differentl...
608 pages of non-stop Fighting Game Science
Fighting games are about more than competition. At their best, they are about taking the most simple of design concepts (be better at hitting someone than they are at hitting you) and using game theory magic to somehow evoke ...
Saturday night's alright for fighting
Capcom studio producer Yoshinori Ono took to Twitter, as he is wont to do, informing us that Capcom is working with Dimps on a new fighting game.
"We are recruiting colleagues to work together with us at Dimps studio fo...
I don't want any of them, do you?
A bunch of Capcom eShop 3DS and Wii U games are on sale until the morning of September 4.
Writing about Capcom just makes me want to replay every Clover game and Resident Evil 4. At least Mega Fans are getting good Mega Man alternates.
Running with NESiCAxLive
According to Siliconera, Capcom is launching a new initiative in the near future to bring back some of their classic fighting games to arcades. The list includes Hyper Street Fighter II, Darkstalkers 3, Street Fighter III: Th...
What a world we live in
First there was a fish playing Pokémon over a Twitch stream like it was a human or something, and now we've got two fish fighting each other in Super Street Fighter II Turbo.
If you're new to this phenomenon, the tank...
On 360 and PS3
When Ultra Street Fighter IV was released back in June, it was only available as a digital title on the Xbox 360 and PS3 -- but now you can grab it at retail for the latter two consoles.
The retail price is the same as t...

'This is our war, Street Fighter IV'
Here's a trailer running down some (but not all!) of the many Street Fighter IV costumes to date, which will be included in next month's retail release of Ultra Street Fighter IV.
Come for the costumes, stay for the cheesy s...
The grand finals and other notable moments
And just like that, another EVO has come and gone. What a weekend.
Despite not playing fighting games much myself, I'll never miss watching the year's big tournament. The audience's energy, the drama that unfolds on stage -- ...
It all starts with Street Fighter
I'm currently trying to get good at Bushido Blade and cursing Square Enix for not making a new one, but I do often talk about wanting to get good at one fighting game -- Persona, these days -- much like I talk about one ...
I'm out of fighting game memes
EVO 2014 is this weekend. We had a lovely time covering it last year, though it doesn't look like we'll have a get together watch party this time around. That's okay. There are three different streams to watch home and a...
Yes, always continue
The millions of different cases out there in the wild for iPhones were definitely integral in my decision to make that pricey purchase after my Android phone bit the dust, and every time I see new phone cases I covet I feel l...
Unfortunately, that's about all we know
Alright, so it's no Ultra Street Fighter IV, but Capcom is working on an upcoming mobile Street Fighter title in tandem with Nexon. Sounds a bit strange, I suppose, but since it's a mobile game it makes sense.
Street Fighter ...
Seeing red again
The Street Fighter series is one that will always invariably undergo several revisions, all in the name of uncovering the perfect fighter. Ultra Street Fighter IV, the latest iteration of 2009's massively popular Street Fight...
He was working at Capcom Vancouver?
Writing on Twitter, Street Fighter executive producer Yoshinori Ono announced that he has resigned from his director position at Dead Rising studio Capcom Vancouver. Note that he specifically left that position -- from the so...

Helping newer players acclimate seems paramount
Fighting game fans have been playing Street Fighter IV for a long time. If we're talking the Japanese arcade version -- since 2008. That's a really, really long time. But according to Capcom president and COO Haruhiro Ts...
PlayStation 4 release coming?
Ultra Street Fighter IV is now out, which means a brand new fight stick was also released by Mad Catz. Well in Japan at least. Interestingly, the PlayStation 3 version has a PlayStation 4 toggle, so you can use the stick on S...
Spoiler alert, kind of, sort of...not really
If you are playing, will be playing, or don't care either way about Ultra Street Fighter IV, the game's story is probably not what comes to mind whenever it's brought up. That said, it hasn't stopped Capcom from creating ani...
The digital upgrade version
Ultra Street Fighter IV is out this week, and given that there are multiple iterations of the game at this point, you should watch the trailer to see what you're getting. Namely, the new characters, new stages, rebalancing, ...
DLC from Games for Windows Live won't carry over
On Friday, Capcom will transition the PC version of Super Street Fighter IV Arcade Edition from Games for Windows Live to Steamworks, though "your GFWL enabled game will still function as normal for the foreseeable future," n...
Way more enjoyable than the Mortal Kombat live-action series
So Machinima's Street Fighter: Assassin's Fist series is surprisingly enjoyable to watch. I was worried this would be another hit-or-miss situation as with the live-action Mortal Kombat stuff, but that's not the case here. I...
Chun-Li and Vega are absolutely gorgeous

Players who are upgrading to Ultra from Super SFIV or Arcade Edition can...
Just not the ones that weren't developed by Capcom
GameSpy Technology is shutting down on May 31. We've seen some companies respond to this, stating that they'll fix their old titles so they live on, or straight up just abandon them. Capcom has responded, and they'll be migra...
First trailer is uh...
Ah man! I love Honda. Not E. Honda. Just Honda. Great lawnmowers.
I also love videogame fan films. Watching them feels kind of like eating 3 pints of Ben and Jerry's in one sitting. Wrong but tasty. Guilty but satisfying.
Also, Ken's hair. [inhales deeply] Ken's hair.
I HAVE to see this series.
Street Fighter: Assassin's Fist officially debuts on May 23 on the main Machinima channel.
