Super Street Kineda II

slideshow_1_1024x1024
Had a chance to check out Kineda’s SF Hyper Collection yet? It’s signature Kineda art, plus you’re favorite Street Fighter II characters. The only thing that can top that is if they made more tee’s with SF4 characters… *cough, cough CODY…ahem.

I’m not big on graphic tee’s anymore, not since 05/06 or so but, Looking through the Kineda Store. I must admit i’m tempted to pick up a few things (I personally like the “Shoryuken” snapback). So if you’re big on Streetwear, still “hypebeasting”, a Capcom supporter, Street Fighter fanboy/girl. I suggest taking a look at the store and dropping some of that tax return money on some fresh shit.

Crossing Over: Street Fighter X Mega Man

….he must be asleep.  Or he’s at work?  Neggy?  You there?

……

Okay, here goes.

Normally, Neggy’s the one to handle anything Capcom related, but I figure I’ll fill in for now.  I have no idea why the fuck I’m awake anyway.

Since two of Capcom’s most popular IP’s are celebrating their 25th anniversaries, Capcom decided to give the little blue bomber a brand new game….featuring the characters of Street Fighter as bosses.  Sounds pretty legit, doesn’t it?
I’ll be honest with you all.  I never got to play very many Mega Man games.  My NES was taken away from me at a relatively early age, and shipped off to the Philippines where my cousins plugged it into a 220v outlet and fried it.  I stated out playing Mega Man X on the SNES, and beating Mega Man X4 and X5 on the PlayStation 1.   I bought Mega Man 2 for my cousins on their Wii, and man…that shit was fun.   So suffice it to say, Mega Man isn’t one of my personal favorite IP’s of Capcom.  Doesn’t mean the IP sucks, by no means, it’s just not one of my favorites.  And I’m glad that they’re doin’ stuff with Mega Man, because I still think he should’ve been in MvC3.

Now Street Fighter….well, that’s a whole other story.  I devoted an entire week to Street Fighter, so I’ll leave that alone.

I am excited for this, and it’s free!  A FREE PC DOWNLOAD FULL MEGA MAN GAME WITH STREET FIGHTER BOSSES.  HOW CAN YOU LOSE?  It’ll be on the capcom-unity website on the 17th.

CGS – COOL GEEKY SHIT!

It’s time for a new segment on SSB.  I’m calling this….COOL GEEKY SHIT!   Here, we’ll focus on cool geeky shit that’s….local.  So maybe, LCGS?  Ehhhh, we’ll stick with CGS.  I’ve got a few things I’d like to showcase, so let me start with something from my homie Anthony Hom.

Anthony is a chiptune wizard that likes to dress up in banana suits.  Seriously.  I met him at last year’s San Diego Asian Film Festival, when he was wearing a banana suit.  Since then, he’s introduced me to the wonderful world of local chiptune music, and this video (which he directed) is an aural and visual feast.  Don’t take my word for it, here it is.

Next up is a short little fight scene from one of my “Saturday Striking!” students, Fernando Jay Huerto.  He put together a video in which Little Mac fights against Ryu.  I won’t spoil the results…but for people that know Fernando…well, let’s just say it plays out like it usually does.

Support your local geeks! Check this shit out!

this is not a toilet

I really want to take one of these to go.

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!!)

I really want to take one of these to go.

Okay, I think I just geek-gasmed

Watch this video.  Go ahead, I’ll wait.

I want to do two things after watching this.  Play Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 and use Iron Man, Captain America, and Thor.  The other thing?  Blog about how the movie would be so much better with Phoenix Wright, Albert Wesker, and Ryu.  Hadoukens, UROBOROS, and OBJECTIONS.

I really need to write my intro.  I’ll do that after I take a shower.
