Super Street Fighter IV: relearning everything from scratch

I'm amazed at how my view of Street Fighter has become refreshed with Super Street Fighter IV. Nothing overly major was changed. What has changed are only smaller tweaks to the overall game, but it's amazing how different a character like Rufus, my main pick from the previous game, can be so different with just a different ultra move.

Fist bumps in the dark: A week with Splinter Cell Conviction

Playing through Conviction alone isn't enough to really get the experience. Since Pandora Tomorrow, the first sequel following Splinter Cell, Ubisoft has made multiplayer a blast in Splinter Cell. People expect the Tom Clancy, convoluted conspiracy theory-laden story at first, but multiplayer has always kept them coming back.

Enjoying Splinter Cell Conviction; got Super Street Fighter IV early

So I finally got back from watching Kick-Ass and it was pretty kick ass (yeah, cheap). Anyways, I find myself with peace of mind to actually post something substantial.
  • Splinter Cell Conviction: skulking around the shadows as Sam Fisher is fun and all, but it's twice as fun with a buddy.
  • It's amazing what ten new characters, rebalanced attack properties, and a new online mode structure will do with a game that's a year old.

Blammo! Custom Combos!

Just a quick note, in case you haven't noticed, I've changed the layout using Blogger's handy Blogger In Draft template customizer. I didn't feel comfortable designing my own code because a lot of what makes the default templates work were CSS files relative to Blogger it looks like (plus I hate, hate, hate to deal with CSS).

Most importantly, I finally have to freedom to widen my margins. Finally, most youtube videos will actually fit here! Like this one!

And yes, I've downloaded Kasumi's Stolen Memory for my copy of Mass Effect 2. I'll get around to talking about it later, so chill.

Back on the Street Fighting Bandwagon

It's been a long time, especially longer since my friend Kelvin borrowed it from me, but I'm back on Street Fighter IV in preparation of Super Street Fighter IV. This of course means going back to play the character I've learned to play: Rufus.
