SFV Hype: Balrog Trailer Reveals Juri and Urien

Balrog Street Fighter V

I know. It’s been way too long since I’ve posted here, but I finally picked up Street Fighter V on the PC and I’ve been grinding it out with Guile. Still got a lot to learn, but it looks like I picked up the game just at the right time. The update being pushed out this Friday (which misses June by just one day) will not only add Ibuki to the roster, but it’ll also bring Balrog (Boxer) into the fray. MY FIGHT MONEY!!!

The trailer pretty much speaks for itself. It looks like the V-Trigger lets you pile out the punches similar to Guile’s V-Trigger booms, creating an almost Super-like continued dash? And the Critical Art looks like a one punch. The headbutt is “back” as the V-Reversal and the V-Skill is the spin to dodge fireballs. Check it out and watch to the end. Juri and Urien are revealed with a couple of sneak peeks at what they can do.

And yes, both Ibuki and Balrog are 100% legal for EVO. Get hype. This trailer was shown at the end of CEO 2016 where Tokido finally broke the Infiltration curse with some serious parries. He even reset the bracket and finished it off with a perfect. God-like Murderface!

Oh and if you’re looking for a few matches with my scrubby self, look for me on the Capcom Fighters Network as HadoukenOnline, which is the same as my Steam ID.

Akuma Revealed for Tekken 7: Fated Retribution

Akuma Revealed in Tekken 7: Fated Retribution Trailer

This isn’t quite the Tekken X Street Fighter that we’ve been promised from Bandai Namco, but it’s the closest thing we’re going to get for the foreseeable future. And it’s not such a bad thing. A new official trailer video was unleashed upon the world for Tekken 7: Fated Retribution and it reveals a big part of the story for the Tekken universe. Akuma is going to hunting for some devilish Mishima men.

The art style here looks pretty freaking epic and it really could put Street Fighter V to shame. It will be interesting to see how the game balancing handles the new dynamics that a Street Fighter shoto, and especially one as demonic as Akuma (Gouki), to fit within how Tekken normally plays. Will everyone just keep sidestepping fireballs? Can he still do an air fireball? One thing we do know for sure: he’s got the raging demon.


Back to the Ultra Street Fighter IV Endless Lobby Online

Back to the Ultra Street Fighter IV Endless Lobby Online

I don’t get to play Street Fighter nearly as often as I would like anymore. Life kind of gets in the way and that’s okay, but it’s awfully refreshing and satisfying to hop back online to duke out a few rounds. The last time I did this was about three months ago, so it’s about time… you know, just in time for anything I know from Ultra Street Fighter IV to be obsolete since we’ll all be playing Street Fighter V next year.

Anyway, here’s a recent set I put in on the PC. I really only found any semblance of success with Blanka, unsurprisingly, getting bopped as Decapre and others. The few matches my Blanka had with the Hugo player were pretty interesting if you want to check those out. It’s a weird matchup, since hopping crossovers just end up getting me a face full of SPD.
