The one thing I love about video game sprites is that folks on the internet can do many wonderful and hilarious things with them. Hell, I was able to create a fight show with some Mega Man and Sonic the Hedgehog sprites for my computer animation class back in high school.
The funny ass folks over at Cracked.com used their talents to come up with this awesome Street Fighter 2 post that follows the drunken adventure (and problems) of Ryu.
You get to see the usually silent and serious warrior talking about what happens when you punch little Chinese girls in the kidneys, singing an 80’s song, having some “me” time with his little Ryu and more.
So click the jump button to check this out as it is definitely worth the time and see if the ending get’s you excited for the possible follow up like it did for me.
There was a time, back in the early 80’s when arcades were the place to be on a Friday night. When you walked in the door all you could hear was the blips and beeps of Pac Man and Donkey Kong. Crowds gathered, and gamer legends were born. Sadly, I was born a little too late for the arcade mania that was the genesis of modern day gaming. Now thirty years later it is a billion dollar industry and one of the more important forms of entertainment many of us can’t live without. By the time I was tall enough to reach the arcade controller there was already two inches of dust on it and people would rather play Atari and Nintendo then go down to the local arcade and play away their allowance money. Then, just as we stopped arguing about what was better Sega or Nintendo, something happened. The Arcade lights went back on and it was time to pop those quarters in the slots again. These are the Top 5 games that stole every kid’s hard earned paper route money back in the mid 90’s. Why not 10? Oh there’s 10, but I thought 5 to be a more fitting number since that is how many rolls of quarters these games took from me and my friends every time we went to the arcade!
People out there like to mash some things together to see what comes out of it (in my case, that would be food since I’m a poor college student and would eat whatever I can make… and cause I’m fat). Over at Dorkly, they found this video that uses the Street Fighter 2 sound/voice clips to sing along with Doraemon’s opening theme song from the anime.
What? You dunno who or what Doraemon is? Well, he is a blue robatic cat (that lost his ears) that came from the future, who has a pouch that is filled with awesome tech stuff that he uses to help a boy named Nobita Nobi. Yeah…I’m n0t making this stuff up. Check the video out as I’m sure most of you would be saying the WTF at it.
With what may be considered a weird mash up, gavacho13 cooked up some awesome images of Sesame Street Fighters characters and for some reason, it works. Check out many pics after the jump to see recognizable muppets dressed up as fighters from Street Fighter 2. I do have one complaint about this, and its that once again, Gonzo gets screwed and there is nothing for me. C’mon gavacho13, show Gonzo and his chicken loving ass some love. (more…)
