Super Street Fighter II HD Remix... and how it got back on my radar


Last time we left Super Street Fighter II HD Remix... I was too smitten with Street Fighter IV to be caring. Yes, Capcom's other Street Fighter game had pretty much caused me to lose interest in a HD remake of my favorite Street Fighter game over. And while I obsessed over whether Cammy was in SFIV or not, the fine folks at Capcom went to work to make sure they could lure me back. And lure they did.

First, we found out the game won't be crappier on the 360 than the PS3... at least in the graphics department. Controls I can't speak for until I actually play both, but at least the biggest worry - that the XBLA size limit would lead to graphics on the 360 below the level of the limit-free PSN/PS3 - is off the table.

And the graphics? Well, we just saw Ken and Ryu in the screenshots... but HOLY CRAP. They look great, especially the backgrounds. A lot of my worries on how it'd look have been settled. Now, again, it's just back to gameplay. Of course, that seems like more of the same. So what it may come down is to controls, what console(s) I own, and if my love for Street Fighter IV is stronger.

The answers right now? Hopefully not nerfed, maybe a 360 and PS3(?), and probably not.

Still, it was nice to get this glimpse at SSFIIHD Remix before my trip out to Pittsburgh, though. I'll be there the next two days so probably no blog update tomorrow night. Unless I can get to a computer at the fancy ass hotel I'm staying at in downtown Pittsburgh for the SPJ Region 4 Conference. After two and a half years of working at The BG News, i finally get to fucking go to a conference. And four star accommodations for free FTW! Expect pictures when I return. :)

About Brian Szabelskione of us since 12:13 PM on 02.11.2007

Oh, hi there. Didnít see you enter. Anyways, welcome to my humble little blog. For those of you not familiar with who I am, the nameís Brian. Iím 24 years old and hail from Findlay, Ohio. I work at the local newspaper here as a copy editor, putting my four long years of college to actual use. Kind of. I think.

For those of you who might recognize me from elsewhere, I work as Assistant Gaming Editor over at Blogcritics Gaming and as Features Editor over at Tomopop. It's a lot of work, but it's worth it because I get to do a lot of cool shit with a lot of cool people.

I've been gaming since the relatively young age of around 3 and I've played plenty of games, both good and bad. I'm continuously expanding my gaming collection, which has become more of an archive in recent years as I'm focusing on collecting older, less well-known titles. You'd honestly be surprised on what people are missing out on in bargain bins...

Other than gaming, I love anime, manga, sports, movies, TV, and a whole lot more. I also happen to have something of a legendary love for Cammy, to the point that I am the site's unofficial official Cammy fanboy. And yes, I do play as her in Street Fighter and do so quite well, too.

Also, I am Chad Concelmo's B.F.F., my prize for coming in first in The Great Retro Quiz .18 - ActRaiser. Accept no substitutes. Not even Aerox.
