AJ Plays Marvel vs. Capcom With His Feet Only

AJ Plays Marvel vs. Capcom With His Feet Only

Absolutely, playing Street Fighter with your face is quite the impressive feat, but you can use other parts of your body too. For example, AJ (“OnlyUseMeFeet” on YouTube) is able to play a variety of arcade games using his feet and that includes fighting games. The video below demonstrates some of these crazy skills. Skip ahead to about 1:54 for the Marvel Vs Capcom 2 action.

Fighting Game News and Rumors – 12/09/10

Lots of new fighting game news and rumors, so let’s get down to it.

kenshin

First off, Rurouni Kenshin is on its way to the Sony PSP. The initial graphics don’t look all that great, but the Samurai Shodown style action could be fun.

Super Street Fighter IV Arcade Edition is getting loaded with some new characters, like Yun and Yang, but it looks like Evil Ryu and Shin Akuma are being thrown into the mix too. Better still, these new characters could be made available for us home gamers via DLC on Xbox Live and PlayStation Network too.

Continuing on SSFIV, you can check out the 149-hit combo from Chun-Li. Totally epic. There’s also the Street Fighter: Beyond the Game documentary that’s worth watching too.

What about that other Capcom project? Well, there’s lots going on with Marvel vs. Capcom 3 too. In the video above, we see newcomers (to MvC3) Storm and Crimson Viper in action. Storm’s done the MvC thing before, but it’s cool to see a “new” SFIV make the jump to the versus front.

We also know about Jill Valentine and Shuma Gorath, as well as the possibility of Mega Man and Frank West. Mike Haggar of Final Fight fame could make the cut too. Other rumors include Hsien-Ko, War Machine, Ultron, Hawkeye, Spider-woman, Strider, Iron Fist, Thanos, Amatsu-Mikaboshi, and Victor Delacroix.

That’s the Japanese box art for the game, which I think looks better than what we’re getting. Either way, we’re expecting a February 15, 2011 launch.

kratos

Oh, and remember how the Soul Calibur series had console exclusives like Link for the GameCube version? Ed Boon and crew look like they’re doing the same for Mortal Kombat, it seems, as Kratos is rumored as a PS3 exclusive character in the upcoming fighting game. I wonder who the Xbox will get. Master Chief?

Street Fighter IV: Every Ultra Move

Street Fighter IV will be hitting the Sony PlayStation 3 and the Xbox 360 in a very short while and I couldn’t be more excited. Having played in the arcade, I’m really starting to appreciate the new art style, as well as the proper introduction of Gouken, the super master who you may know better as Sheng Long. As with some of the other Street Fighter games, Street Fighter IV will get Super Moves, but it’s also got Ultra Moves for each of the characters. These are more dramatic, more powerful, and more awesome.

Ryu got a little shafted with his Ultra Move, because it’s just another big fireball. The same can be said about Dhalsim, but Akuma is as crazy as he’s ever been. The new characters, like Crimson Viper and Abel, get some pretty neat Ultra Moves too. Check them out.
