RIP to legendary artist Mick McGinty

Announced publicly by his son Jobey, there is an article on caringbridge if you wish to read the lovely post dedicated to his father.  For most of us here, Mick McGinty will forever be remembered for his timeless art of Street Fighter II as well as his many beautifully crafted video game, tv, movie, and standalone pieces. 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.

A 6 Step Combo for the Future-Past

  "Welcome, fighter!  Today is a general post about how we at SFWoWR like to get ourselves good and Hyper before playing any game that is from a gen system we're not familiar with.  You can apply these steps to old school SF as well as any game you want to focus on.  Is it necessary?  No, but it's just a fun habit we'd like to share.  With so many wonderful titles coming out all the time, there are others who haven't got the chance yet to try some of the classics and we'd like to give you a taste of the past.  This little setup is not just to enjoy an old game someone referred to you or for curiosity's sake, but also because, in a way, you can project your thoughts back in time.  Heavy stuff!  Now even if you don't end up fully understanding the experience it's okay.   It's the effort to appreciate a game or subject you want to try that counts.  With these easy steps as a jumping off point along with that wonderful imagination of yours, you can make this journey as long and as detailed as you wish, but we're going to give you a Turbo fast process to blaze through it.  You ready, time traveler?  Ok! 


1. Find out what year the particular game came out. [Wikipedia]

2. Look up the top music (songs) for that year. [Billboard Top 100]

3. Throw one on or a playlist of them in the background while you look up the next step.

4. Find a most basic list of what was hot that year in movies, tv, news, fashion, food, toys, merchandise, etc. and just skim it.  It's fine to just look at the pics. And it's more than ok to laugh or cringe.  Even those of us who were there can chuckle at some of it too.

5. Next hit the search for that game (watch out for spoilers, warrior!) and look solely for what would be the predecessor of that title.  [As an example, one game that could be a parental influence to the original Street Fighter (1987) was Karate Champ (1984).]  

6. Finally, once you found it then put it's name into YouTube (might want to pause that old music you're jamming to) and take a glance at a gameplay clip of it.



That's it!  You now have a primed mindset to try something out of your usual time table.  When you play the game whether you liked it or not, hey, you gave it its due.  And guess what?  This can also work for older folks who want to try getting in the mindset for newer games!  Then old and young will be enjoying each others fondness and memories for gaming.  And that sounds just Perfect to us.  

If you decided to try out our 6 step Combo and liked it let us know here!  Or through our secondary e-mail here.  We'd love to hear from you!

Chapter 5.5 is out for Sidekick!  A popular fanfic written by orangebookworm01!  Here's just a teaser from the first paragraph:

"When I find that woman, I'll flay her alive," Vega snarled raspily with spittle flecked lips. "How dare she do this to me?! My face...oh, my beautiful face..." Balrog sat opposite him in the van, clenching his fists. The veins in his forearms popped out from the tension. He was having a similar physical reaction to the spray, but was handling it better."Shut it, pretty boy," the boxer demanded. "Your whining is getting on my nerves!...
