Street Fighter V Reveals New Fighter But Wait, Wrestling!

Capcom have revealed a brand new fighter throwing down in Street Fighter V [official site], the wind-whirling Rashid, but look, his unveiling has mostly reminded me that I never told you about a ridiculous and amazing older character confirmed to return in the new punch 'em up. Yes yes I know you may want to learn about Rashid and I'll get to the Middle Eastern…

Watch Evo 2015 This Weekend, It’ll Be Great

But what, you may reasonably ask, is that?Evo is the world championships of fighting games. If you like fighting games, you're already planning to watch it, have Monday off work and are stocking up on cool snacks. If you don't hopefully you haven't already stopped reading, because Evo is the spectator event of the year unless you have some sort of allergy to excitement. Taking…

Free Honda: Ultra Street Fighter IV Free Weekend

There was a period in the mid-nineties when Rise of the Robots and One Must Fall: 2097 were the only beat 'em ups available on PC. Believing robotic participants to be the future of combat sports, Colin Computer, CEO of PC Incorporated, banned all fighting games containing living combatants. When it became clear that people might accidentally play Rise of the Robots in a two-game…

Cross-Platform Punching In Street Fighter V

When the announcement of Street Fighter V leaked on Friday, Capcom scrambled around trying to scour the Internet of all the grainy copies of a video which didn't say much beyond: Street Fighter V exists, and is coming to PC and PS4. They've gotten around to announcing SF5 now though, a process which involves a new gameplay trailer and word that- ooh! It'll have cross-platformer…

Wacky Ultra Street Fighter 4: Omega Mode

A balanced game is a beautiful thing, but don't we all have fond memories of some absurd imbalance? That build order, that shotgun, that map glitch. Competitive multiplayer games strive for balance even more than others, but it can sometimes be a bit sanitising. Craggly bits in games are interesting. How jolly pleasant, then, to see Capcom are making a new Ultra Street Fighter 4…

Bif Pow Oof: Ultra Street Fighter 4 Released

In my hazy role as news editor of Rock, Paper, Shotgun, I'd like for us to cover fighting games more. They're fascinating systems of intricate parts I broadly understand enough to mention but fumble horrible trying to execute. "Attack priority, yeah?" I offer. "Invincibility frames? Leave it out bruv!" See, I skipped fighting games as a littlun, as a crone really have the time to…

Combo Breaker: Ultra Street Fighter IV Trailer

In another life, I didn't spend the entire Easter weekend managing virtual football teams, but instead spent it practicing fighting game combos. I like to think that this dimensional doppelgänger has enough good taste to make Street Fighter his puncher of choice. I've never been good at it, but I've read enough to know that it's good. And the trailer below for Ultra Street Fighter…

Ultra Street Fighter 4 Final Mega Character Reveal

Capcom has insisted that this trailer is the final character reveal for Ultra Street Fighter 4, but how can we trust a company that released Street Fighter 2 seventeen times (Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix is a thing that exists) with any sort of claim of finality? I'm hitting 'post' on this, but the minute I do I expect a Special Massive Mega…
