NYC Comic Con 2014! Part 1

So I was among the lucky few to score tickets to New York City Comic Con. It was my second year to attend and I was blessed with the opportunity to meet many interesting people, some celebrities and see how people all come together to show their love for comic book/pop-culture/manga/sci-fi culture. I took a ton of pictures and i will be sharing them throughout the week. So let’s get started!

So here we have my favorite Street Fighter character – Ryu with the bigboyNERD

Ultra Street Fighter IV Release Date and Price Announced

There has been news that Capcom is once again releasing a various of the iconic Street Fighter IV game (I know another one!). While there are couple of new fighters and arenas, Ultra Street Fighter will take an approach to fix the technical gaps of each character’s individual command lists. As for example, Ryu’s combo chain of a medium kick into a Haduken will be easier to pull off. And Sagat’s second hit of the Standing Light Kick is  able to be special cancelled. Each character will become more balanced to have a better gameplay experience. So if you want to try it yourself to feel the difference, the game will be available early June 2014, good news is that if you own Super Street Fighter IV or Super Street Fighter IV : Arcade Edition, you can upgrade for just $14.99. Sorry owners of the PC version, you will have to wait another two months for it to drop in August. As an apology for making you guys wait, Capcom will offer them a full version of the game, including the all the costumes, for just $29.99. So it kinda works out, right?  The full version of the game on disc will also be out in August.

The Ken Song

Ok, so i found this song about 5 years ago. I stumbled upon different websites that had remixes to classic video game themes. I got the opportunity to download and explore different interpretations of songs of my childhood. I am a huge fan of Street Fighter, so this is just one of the versions i discovered of the classic Ken Theme. If you listen closely, the lyrics in the song describe the iconic character in great detail. Listen to the songs one at a time to really experience the transformation of the original song, its really quite amazing. I hope you enjoy this as much as i do
