Article on Event Hubs about Street Fighter's 35th!

Below is just a brief excerpt from the post on Event Hubs by Dakota 'DarkHorse' Hills following the official Street Fighter post on Twitter.  Looking back at the beginning as well as pondering what will happen this year for the future of the series, Event Hubs offers some thoughts leading up to Street Fighter's birthday this August.

Street Fighter 2 may have started the fighting game community as we know it, but none of us would be here without the original. 
 
The Street Fighter series is celebrating its 35th anniversary here in 2022, and Capcom certainly has some fun stuff up their sleeves for the milestone, starting out with a new logo. 
 
When it hit the arcades all the way back in 1987, Street Fighter introduced the world to Ryu, Ken, Sagat, Hadokens, Shoryukens, directional special inputs in general and so much more. 
 
The series progenitor was also a very different beast than what most first experienced with SF2 since the Shotos were the only playable fighters (with the rest being computer controlled only). 
 
Moreover, the "Deluxe" arcade cabinets only featured 1 punch and 1 kick button that would determine the strength of the attack depending on how hard they were pressed.

Street Fighter II: Health Bar

With STREET FIGHTER II, PAPER TRAILS, Fabien Sanglard starts diving into the technical inner workings of Street Fighter 2 and the CPS-1 system it ran on as well as similar titles leading to later systems.  Using sheet images and other information from original development, this is a really close look at the game that eventually created an entire genre and it's certainly worth a browse.

Fabien is a graduate of Grenoble University who earned a Master of Science in Computer Science degree.  They have also worked for various companies as a Software Engineer, created their own company (Memset Software), and went to work for Google in 2014.  Fabien is also a published author with books related to the structure and game engines of Wolfenstein and Doom. 

Street Fighter Duel's Taiwanese Version may be a closer look at the upcoming Global release!
 In a Youtube vid by Scion Storm (watch here), the content creator casually talks about a few differences this Taiwan version has from the original. Mentioning menus and equipment specifically, Scion implies that navigating these screens and inventory is now an easier process. They also go on to comment about a few personal strategies in the game and even discovers something about a character that has changed from the previous version. As the Worldwide release gets closer each day, we look forward to seeing what other interesting things these players find about Street Fighter Duel.

STREET FIGHTER: Psychosis Teaser Trailer is out!  

Click image to watch on Instagram or here to see the Youtube video!  Street Fighter: Psychosis will release this year on December 25th.

OUT NOW - Rundown for the Final Character!
 
  Dashing at ya from the start, in case you missed the live stream for the Fall Update you can watch it here before reading our scribble.  Now in regards to Luke being released as content on the 29th, his Story, Battle, and Track Suit will be available as well.  As is known, this will be the final major update for Street Fighter V and will give a small glimpse of the future (of SF6?) with the inclusion of Luke as a character.

Gameplay-wise he seems to have some interesting mechanics.  In particular the speed of his projectiles and a back step that appears to be an imminent issue for grapplers or throw-heavy players.  It's going to be exciting to see what some solid players come up with involving his overall kit.

On the story side of things concerning Luke, Steven Mane is already getting warmed up for some juicy theories with just the little bit of info the Update teased.  We can't wait to see what he comes up with after Nov. 29th.

Post-stream, Capcom has asked, via a short survey, for any fans to leave some feedback on the final update presentation if they desire.  You can go here to take the survey to submit it to Capcom.

Finally, there's currently a sale on all Street Fighter V content happening over at Steam just in case you want to take advantage of the lower price point prior to the final update.  A comparable sale is also going on at the Playtation Store for you PS4/PS5 system users.

Whelp that's about it!  We're very much looking forward to how Luke fits into the SF Universe and seeing the variety of unique ways all you players use him as soon as he drops.  So till Monday, warriors! 👋

 New Blog Post on Mane Street! Here's the first paragraph to get you started:

"One of the hardest things for a lore theorycrafter to do is make a theory on someone that doesn’t have much of a backstory. Birdie is an interesting case. Even though he’s a recognizable legacy character, there isn’t a whole lot to really theorize on with him. He does, however, have one mystery to him that people have wondered about for years: why did his skin tone change from white in Street Fighter I to black in every single appearance he has held since? This is even canon in the games.

RIP to legendary artist Mick McGinty

To name a few of his works, they included images for Superman The Movie, Flash Gordon, .38 Special, The Police, MTV's roll-out ad campaign, Adidas magazine ads, McDonalds promotions, visuals for NFL, Universal Studios, as well as posters for Jaws, Harry and the Hendersons, Who Framed Roger Rabbit?, Dragnet, Curse of the Pink Panther, and so much more. We wish him now the most beautiful rest and encourage anyone to give their kind words or share your memories in regards to the works of a friend named Mick McGinty.

  Here Comes A New Challenger!
 No matter if you were there or heard it through fellow members in the community, if you're part of the FGC (whether in a casual or a hardcore capacity) you have some idea of how an arcade cabinet known as Street Fighter II changed the world of gaming forever.  A title that solidified an entire genre and the massive following that sprung from its release.  Regardless if you are a 2D or a 3D loyalist or have never cared to even touch a Street Fighter title, there is some inherent respect given to SF2 that paved the way, by setting a standard for fighting games that continues on to this day.

Oliver Harper, along with a great team of talented people, are releasing the upcoming documentary called "Here Comes A New Challenger" that delves into everything that flowed from this beloved game's impact. There're interviews from all kinds of people who were part of its development, worked on its media, were heavily inspired by it, or are just huge fans of the gaming juggernaut that was Street Fighter II.  We're only just scratching the surface of what all is going to be in this film.  We may very well be seeing one of the greatest docs yet about SF2 and we're just Hyper biting at the bit to get a look at it!  We have no affiliation with them besides just following the @sf2doc on Twitter and Oliver on Instagram, so we're not privy to any inside track on what else is showcased, so you'll know about as much as we do about it.  Especially if you go check out the Indiegogo page to get an exclusive look at the trailer as well as some other screenshots & info. Please consider supporting this project along with us if you like what you see.  You will secure a Digital Copy of the documentary starting at just $20 USD, but with higher donations you will be offered even more goodies including having your name be in the credits for the film itself!  Then when the day comes to watch it we'll be right there with ya in spirit. So see ya then, World Warrior!
