Persona 5 and Fighting Games

Persona 5 and Fighting Games

Posted by on May 21, 2017 in Commentary, featured, PS4 |

Finishing Persona 5 created a Persona itch so I scratched that with Persona Q. That game was release in 2014. I bought it then, played it for a bit then ignored it until recently. Now that I finally finished it, I now know that Etrian Odyssey-style floor puzzles are not my thing. I don’t have enough patience to figure them out by myself.

Playing on the 3DS led to purchasing two more games for it: Bravely Second and Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor 2. Since they’re both old games I got them at a lower price so that’s nice. I haven’t decided which one I’ll play first.

As much as I love Street Fighter, my interest in Street Fighter V is waning. I bought it on launch, gave it a year to improve, and now I think not only did it not do that, I believe it got worse. I don’t like the direction that the game is going.

With that said, both Tekken 7 and Guilty Gear Xrd REV 2 are looking good though. I’m also waiting for Ultimate Marvel VS Capcom 3 to go on sale.

Chun-Li Cosplay

Chun-Li Cosplay

Cosplayer DollWithAGun gives us a bit of history about the costume:

Growing up, I can’t tell you how much time I spent watching my older brothers play Street Fighter. Being the little sister, I didn’t get to play much, but when I did, Chun-Li was my girl! When I was picking my first cosplay, she was a no-brainer.

It’s hard to believe that the first time I put this costume on was almost 9 years ago! I was so thrilled to get some nice shots of it before anything happens to it.

On The Excellent Adventures of Gootecks and Mike Ross

Posted by on Feb 4, 2011 in Commentary |

It all started with Daigo.

Daigo Umehara is one of the best, if not the best Street Fighter player in the world. His rise to fame started with his defeat of Justin Wong in EVO 2004 where he parried all of Chun-Li’s attacks then countered it with one of his own to get the victory. Now that I have Super Street Fighter IV, I’ve been watching videos of his matches on YouTube, trying to learn from them as much as I can.

I inevitably ran into Cross Counter TV and from there got to The Excellent Adventures of Gootecks and Mike Ross, both of which are hosted by the aforementioned professional Street Fighter players. Cross Counter TV covers match analysis, news and recaps, mostly focused on Street Fighter but occasionally branching out to other fighting games as well. What I really enjoy though is Excellent Adventures.
