It’s hard to combine characters from wildly disparate sources into one epic story without things getting absurd. The Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite story demo’s strategy is to embrace the goofiness.
Competing in a Street Fighter tournament is hard, especially if you’re blind.
Is there a drug I can take, Limitless-style, that will make me better at video games? Ideally, it would be something legal. And something that wouldn’t put me in any medical danger.
Punching Nazis is something of a time honored tradition in the United States. So is making memes. It seems natural then that the Internet wouldn’t waste any time in making a video of white supremacist and neo-Nazi Richard Spencer getting punched in the face go viral.
We probably all know the general story of Moment 37 and the famous Daigo Parry that displayed a serious talent for Street Fighter blocking. But for our second episode of Kotaku Compete, you can get a behind-the-scenes look at the feelings and the people behind the moment, and how it’s affected them since.
The next time a pillow fight breaks out at a sleepover, don’t bother reaching for a heavy feather-filled cushion. No, if you truly want to dominate the battle, make sure you have this Street Fighter Ryu Hadoken Fire Ball cushion in your stuffed arsenal.
It's about time the under-appreciated knitted sweater finally got some respect. Creating intricate patterns by simply zig-zagging and weaving yarn is an artform, and one that has possibly reached its peak with this truly magnificent Street Fighter design.
The first time I played Tekken 3, I was hilariously bad. I was used to 2D fighting games, where the buttons corresponded with attack strength, and tapping 'Up' meant 'Jump.' This new, 3D genre, where each button corresponded with an attacking limb and tapping 'Up' meant 'Sidestep' (pressing 'Up' still meant 'Jump'),…
We're coming up on Evo, the biggest fighting game tournament in America. It will run Friday to Sunday from Las Vegas and be streamed online for the world to see. It'll be the biggest Evo yet. But maybe you aren't prepared—there are eight completely different games at this one event, after all, and what makes them…
Fame is a fickle mistress. You never know when she will bestow her blessings upon you, and you don’t know when she’ll take it away — although starring in really crappy scifi and fantasy movies is a pretty good way to make the latter happen. Here are 15 poor souls whose movie careers ended rather abruptly.
This week in the world of cartoons, the Avengers find themselves infected by a mysterious gas and targeted for arrest, Peter Parker isn't good enough to be Spider-Man, while Finn and Jake are caught in the middle of a Fire Kingdom assassination plot.
There is a dream harbored by everyone who grew up playing Street Fighter. In that dream you put your wrists together, shove them forward, shout "Hadouken!" and a giant fireball flies through the air. Last night, that dream came true.
In the 1976 Chinese kung fu flick Master of the Flying Guillotine (which incidentally had a krautrock soundtrack), the protagonist — the One-Armed Boxer — squares off against Yoga Tro La Seng, a yoga master with the power to stretch out his limbs ridiculously. Yoga Tro La Seng also throws a bird at our hero, but…
Real life fights are painful and destructive! And video game fights are usually frustratingly difficult. So instead, watch this incredible stop-motion animated bout between Ryu and Ken. It almost feels like you're getting kicked in the skull.
In the 1994 flick Street Fighter, we never learn what the "M" in M. Bison's name stands for. To me, that "M" means "Masterpiece." Why? Raul Julia's superlative performance as the lunatic dictator makes the film ever-so-watchable 16 years later.
Videographer Jeff Rubin has taken every one of Chris Klein's lines from the universally panned Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun Li and crammed them into a continuous two-minute blurt — the final result is weirdly hypnotic.
