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.

Back in the Dojo After Too Many Months

Ultra Street Fighter IV - Decapre

Yeah. It’s been quite a long while since I’ve had the chance to sit down and play some Street Fighter and, well, it shows. I hopped online via Steam with my PC version of Ultra Street Fighter IV, playing mostly with Decapre. The results speak for their shameful selves.

The Honest Trailer to Street Fighter

The Honest Trailer to Street Fighter

Many, many jokes have been made about Street Fighter in its 20+ year history and it’s obvious enough that it could be one of the most racist video game franchises of all time. It’s also one of the most successful and the most iconic, even if Microsoft has trouble guessing the age of the world warriors. And now, we have the honest trailer.

Starring… Ryu, Also Ryu, Girl Ryu, Joke Ryu, Evil Ryu and Evilier Ryu….

If you’re looking for something on a slightly more serious note, check out the
origin stories of Vega (Claw) and Balrog (Boxer) too.
