(7 gifts from the Street Fighter franchise) Guile….just Guile.

Street Fighter week continues unabated at “Strawberry Scented Burnout”.  At the end of each day I’m going to list 7 things that the Street Fighter franchise has given to us, its children bathed in arcade light and stale pizza from Chuck E. Cheese’s.

Since this is the first day I figured that I should go with something we all know and love.

Guile.  Motherfucking Guile.

There’s only one thing to do when Guile tells you to go home and be a family man. Even if you have a vajazzle.

At this point, I’m going to assume that our readers know who Guile is.  Here’s the quick bio just in case you don’t.

Col. William Guile is an officer in the USAF, and he’s really pissed off at M. Bison for killing his homie Charlie.  He works closely with Chun-Li and Cammy.  He’s also Ken’s brother-in-law.  That must make family gatherings really awkward.

Street Fighter’s plot aside, Guile’s given us so much.  Like his victory message.

And of course, his theme song.

His theme song has proven to be so powerful that it can make anything awesome.  It does indeed go with everything.

So if you have time, salute the American flag and thank Capcom for making such a wonderful character.  Even if the live action movie was balls, it did give us this wonderful scene.

 

25 years of Awesome.

Before I talk about the indestructible game of all time Street Fighter I gotta give a shout out to one of my best friend’s in college. Happy Birthday you crazy Owl.

So street fighter is 25 just like me and I must say..we age damn fine! As a lad I detested,hated, reviled this game. Why? Because I was not able to do the hadouken! I was not fierce enough or just didn’t have a sense of timing and Daslim scared the living shit out of me. Then when Street Fighter 4 came along…I discovered my main DAN(FATTTHERRRRRRRRRR) and finally the game made sense. I secretly played at my friend’s house a lot, and told no one about my secret training. I decided to unleash my new found skills on my brother by doing Akuma’s special and walking away. Then walking back to school him with Dan. So Happy Bday street fighter may we both age handsome.

 

Happy Birthday Street Fighter!

Has it really been 25 years?! Time flies.

We’ve come a long way, haven’t we?  Street Fighter, the ubiquitous 2d fighting game has now turned 25 today.  Happy birthday, Street Fighter!!

And big congrats to Capcom and Ono-sensei for making such a wonderful fighting game.

The franchise itself has gone through numerous twists and turns to get to where they are today.  Mixing it up with other franchises seems to be only the beginning.

So, for this week, Team Mixed Nuts will be talking about their experiences with the Street Fighter games, the culture, the fighting game scene, and how it grew and changed with the times.

Now excuse me while I go ogle Han Juri.

mmmm…smexytimes with Chun Li while everyone watches. She’d be such an exhibitionist.
I love Han Juri. (If anyone knows who drew this, lemme know!!)
