    It's ALL. ABOUT. BLANKA. Any character who scratches his arse as an opening animation gets my vote. Plus, I got the impression that, deep down, Blanka only wanted to love. That, and bite the face off of his opponent.

    Sagat. Especially the extra burly I hit you 3xxx with my uppercut Alpha version. Classic stage with the reclining Buddha, and great music. Also, the best throw in Street Fighter history (the knees to the face).

    I think arrows are more probable.

    Made me laugh out loud, quite literally.

    how about trying to save the thread and linking to maybe one of the finest moments in competitive gaming.

    semi final of evo2004. Daigo Umehara (Japan, playing ken in white) against Justin Wong (United States of America, playing chun li) .

    Daigo is already one round down.
    Some context here. The game they are playing -maybe the finest fighting game ever designed- is SF III 3rd strike. In this iteration of the SF franchise, one can move forward at the very frame a punch or kick lands, and damage is then deflected. This is called a parry. It is extremely hard to do as we are talking very specific frames of the move's animation, fractions of a second, and attempting to parry a frame too soon or too late, you eat a full blow at maximum damage. It's like knitting mittens for an ant. Quickly.

    By the end of the clip, notice Daigo Umehara's health bar to the upper left. Any block or direct hit will end up with Daigo's face on the ground.

    Justin knows this. At the 30 second mark, he starts building Chun Li's devastating super move, a monster landing 20 blows under 9 seconds.

    What follows pretty much defines the word "owned" the gaming hyper competitive young chaps have today.

    There are no women in that room.

    That said...Awesome.

    @ hyim I laughed way too much at the end of that clip. I may have to shower now.


    Will
