Destroy Haxan, Win Street Fighter IV Contest: Week 4 Update


First things first, here are the current standings:

1st: senisan82 PS3
2nd: Char Aznable 360
3rd: Dan Martigan 360
4th: y0j1mb0 PS3
5th: C2C Shiro 360
6th: Nilcam PS3
7th: TrailerParkJesus 360
8th: Rab 360
9th: kirbilot PS3
10th: casualweaponry PS3
11th: Cataract 360
12th: Smurfee McGee 360
13th: GenkiJAM 360
14th: cwal37 PS3

There were two big stories in the rankings this past week. The first was Char Aznable overtaking DanMartigan for the 2nd place spot. The top 4 spots seemed to be almost cemented in place for some time. But Char found the Pickax of Forward Momentum (this will be a weapon in the next Zelda game, I guarantee it), and moved himself into position to strike at Senisan's long-standing top spot.

The second big story is the Cerebral Assassin himself, C2C Shiro. In the past week, C2C has moved up a whopping 5 spots! He has had a lot of matches to make-up and he's been chipping away at them diligently. And he's not even caught up yet. So, be very careful, you folks in the top 4. C2C Shiro is coming for you!

This past week went the opposite of smooth. I figured that I was going to have a lot of time on Christmas and Christmas Eve to bounce around and play a lot. But, with last minute shopping and feeling quite sick on Christmas Day, this was not the case. So, thanks for bearing with me.

Especially last night. I'm sorry to each and every person that I fought during the PS3 Sagat matches. I was as a demon unleashed. Playing quite cheap some of the time. I pulled 33 wins in 40 matches. I promised an explanation. I had plans to meet up with a friend from out of town last night. She was having a big gathering at a bar. And I only really had time to drop in for an hour, before speeding back home to get my Street Fighter on. While I was there I was making time with this ultra-hot redhead. It was going really well. But not enough time for it to really get anywhere. Then I had to leave.

Skipping out was not an option for me, because I hate to blow people off when I promise I'm going to be some place. Especially this community that I love. So, I hoped to be able to race home, blow through all of my matches, and meet up with the party as they hit their second bar. I was just trying to end all matches as quickly as possible. Take everyone out in two rounds if I could swing it. Sorry guys, the Dark Hadou totally possessed me.

When I hit the 2nd bar, the mystery girl wasn't there, sadly. Since she had said that she was heading back home to New York on Monday, I didn't even bother to ask about her. Still, a good time was had. I again apologize for being a larger dick of a player than usual.

Dee Jay matches tonight on the 360. I should be on between 8-10pm EST.

About Haxanone of us since 11:13 AM on 10.23.2007

Occasional contributer to Tomopop.com.

Random gaming facts about Haxan

Legitimately beat Mike Tyson and went through Another World Circuit undefeated.

Beat the original Contra without dying. Twice.

Can land the damn plane in Top Gun and can also refuel in midair.

Can't beat Ghost & Goblins without the level select code and has never lied about it.

Thinks Friday the 13th is a great game even if the physics, controls and weapons are garbage.

Mario Paint caused him to buy a Super Nintendo and largely leave his Sega Genesis behind. He has played it more than most video games and wore down the mouse pad so that the grid only shows around the corners.

Has beaten Street Fighter II: The World Warrior and Super Street Fighter II: The New Challengers on the SNES on the hardest difficulty without losing a single round. Multiple times.

Is still friends with the girl who worked at a local game store and sold him Street Fighter II nearly 17 years ago.

Beat Final Fantasy 2 in a weekend when he was a kid, yet can't get through a role-playing game these days if his life depended on it.

Has never beaten Final Fantasy VII.

Prefers pads to sticks.

Likes the N64 controller.

Prefers the Duke to the S-controller.

Doesn't think that Super Mario 64 is all that great.

Got an Xbox mostly for Buffy: The Vampire Slayer. And thinks it's a damn good game. Really.

Swore he would never buy a Game Boy Advanced SP, but immediately broke down once the NES edition came out. (And regarding the NES Classics series, true in-store dialogue: "Dude, are you serious?! They seriously expect people to pay 20 dollars a piece for games they can just downlo...Ooh! Zelda!")

Really liked the first Halo. (Well, there goes my dtoid cred.)

Can rock out Dynamite Rave in Dance Dance Revolution like it's nobody's business.

Played the hell out of Animal Crossing: Wild World and hid that fact from nobody.

Stomped Brad Nicholson at Street Fighter IV, but had to resort to the cheapest of tactics in order to do so. ;)

Thinks you're really, really, really smart. And pretty.

Top ten favorite games (in no particular order):

The Legend of Zelda (NES)
Mike Tyson's Punch-Out (NES)
The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask (N64)
Phantom 2040 (SNES)
Street Fighter II (any version)
Metal Gear Solid 3: Subsistence (PS2)
Final Fantasy 3/6 (SNES)
Ico (PS2)
Sin and Punishment (N64)
Picross (DS)


I love drawing, though I realize that I'm not very good. I figured early on that drawing my own header art would help my blogs stand out. Thanks to Destructoid, and to the scanner that Carollelogram got me for my birthday last year, I feel like I've developed a unique style that's distinctly my own.

Outside of games I've got a DVD collection that is exploding out of a 5'x6' shelf (over 400 titles). So suffice it to say that I love movies. I'm a huge horror fan and I host an annual Dusk Till Dawn Horror Movie Marathon nearly every October. My top ten favorite films in order are as follows:

1. The Good, the Bad and the Ugly (Il Buono, il Brutto, il Cativo, 1966)
2. Night of the Living Dead (1968)
3. Seven Samurai (Shichinin no Samurai, 1954)
4. The City of Lost Children (La Cit� des enfants perdus, 1995)
5. The Apartment (1960)
6. Strings (2004)
7. Heavenly Creatures (1994)
8. The Big Lebowski (1998)
9. Batman: Mask of the Phantasm (1993)
10. Kiss Kiss Bang Bang (2005)

Music-wise, my top 3 bands are The Pixies, The Velvet Underground and Radiohead. I listen to damn near every genre of music (except modern country. I yearn for the days of Hank Williams, Sr. and Tammy Wynette). Hit random on my mp3 player and you'll get everything from darkwave to hip hop to 80's synthpop. I karaoke pretty regularly. I can't sing, but I surround myself with people who can. Still, you've not experienced all there is in life until you've seen me proper butcher True by Spandau Ballet.

Then, as for the literary interests, my love lies with pulp detective novels of the thirties and forties. Raymond Chandler is simply the greatest ever. And Dashiell Hammett is just fantastic. Lately, I've been reading through Frank Herbert's Dune Chronicles at Carollelogram's recommendation. Two books in and I have to say they're astonishing.

If you do the Twitter thing, Haxan1 is my handle should you want to follow me.
