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.
