I’m still working on my super-long Street Fighter 2 Turbo comic but I thought I’d do something quick in the meantime, inspired by my wife watching me play the bonus rounds of Super Street Fighter 4 on 3DS the other day.

God DAMN I love Street Fighter, but those bonus rounds always seemed so archaic even back in the day. What was the point of them, really? I guess it provided a bit of a distraction when you were playing two player but it’s like going to a nice steak restaurant and then the waiter comes out during your meal and goes OH HEY HERE’S A VEGEMITE SANDWICH. Now of course being a good Australian I love Vegemite but sheesh there’s a time and a place for everything.

Hey, while I’m at it, how come there’s been no Australian Street Fighter characters? I remember there was one in some SNK fighting games but you’d think it would be a no-brainer for Capcom.

I actually liked the MegaDrive version of Championship Edition, the muted colours kind of worked for me, but seriously folks the SNES game was where it was at. But more about the SNES one later…
