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 with Virgin Gaming to allow Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition players on PS3 and Xbox 360 over the age of 18 to bet on head-to-head matches. Previous supported titles have been sports games -- FIFA, Madden, and the like.

Now, the betting process doesn't seem much more complicated than setting up a private session like you would normally and then taking a picture of the results and uploading it to the site, but there are measures in place for regional matchmaking and skill ratings. The main thing you're getting from Virgin Gaming, I suppose, is peace of mind. Kind of neat.

Given the choice, I'd rather bet on someone else's abilities and not my own. That'd make for a nerve-wracking EVO, wouldn't it? More so than usual, I mean.

These Street Fighter II iPhone cases look a lot better than that lame OtterBox

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...more
