First person Street Fighter II bonus stage animated short - You've never seen Ryu break bricks like this!

The Street Fighter II bonus stages were something that players of all ages knew and loved. There was something so satisfying about breaking a wall of bricks or destroying barrels as they came tumbling down upon you.

As the player, we have always admired these stages from a 2D perspective but have you ever wondered how the fighters themselves may have seen it? PipocaVFX created an awesome animated video showing off a first person view of Ryu destroying the wall of bricks.

The graphics used here are pretty smooth and this is overall an awesome clip to check out.

Does Guile's theme still go with everything when it's played on 8 floppy drives?

MrSolidSnake745 is back, armed with his 8 floppy drives and a strong desire to recreate some very iconic tunes. He's turned his attention to the all purpose song, Guile's stage music from the Street Fighter 2 series.

Floppy drives were well known be loud, annoying and monstrously slow little devices, before computers stopped shipping with them almost altogether. If you ever spent several hours pulling 80+ megabytes of data off of disks, this video should bring a smile to your face.

Yoga, Yoga, Yoga, Flame! EFD - Yoga Flame: Music video incorporates SF and KoF's backgrounds and special moves

Hip hop and fighting games go some what hand in hand. In recent years, we've seen various artists performing fighting game themed tracks such as Snoop Lyon's Tekken Tag Tournament 2 song or even the hip hop / jazzy soundtrack to Street Fighter 3 Third Strike. Today, the guys over at EFDMusik bring us something unique.

A tune that focuses heavily on Street Fighter 2 and Dhalsim, this video features some interesting effects and hilariously awesome cosplay. Knock it all you like but I dare you to try and get that hook out of your head.

Yoga! Yoga! Yoga! Flame!....

Super Street Fighter 2 Turbo King of GGPO 2012 Championships results and replays

TS|Arturo Sanchez has been hard at work over the past year organizing King of GGPO 2012, a championship series focused on Super Street Fighter 2 Turbo. This tournament included four players: Afrolegends, Shotosallday, Yito2k and Evoralph. All of these players have a history of being very strong players before qualifying for the final round.

The tournament is initially set as a 3/5 set round of robin between all four players. Then the top two players from that round robin face each other in a first-to-10 for the crown. The embedded video below contains the FT10 finals only. Given ST's extremely brutal high damage and game speed, the matches end very quickly.
