Back in 1987, the original Street Fighter game took to the arcades from Capcom.  You play as the young fighter Ryu, who goes around the world looking to fight opponents that are willing to fight.  In England you fight Birdie (who by the way turns into a BLACK PERSON in the alpha series) and Eagle (who is actually gay).  In Hong Kong you fight Gen (some old dude that trained Chun Li’s father) and Lee (some fat ass).  In America you fight Joe (some white guy), and you fight Mike ( who if you pay attention to the Japanese versions of the later games, he is actually M. Bison, aka Boxer, aka Balrog if you play the American versions).  You also fight a bunch of other people that dont matter, except for Sagat and Adon in Thailand.  This game actually sucked balls, but it gave Capcom incentive enought to create possibly the greatest fighting game of all time, Street Fighter 2.

Street Fighter 2 took arcades by storm when it came out in 1991.  It had simple controls, sweet characters, and you can see Chun Li’s panties when she did her fireball.  Capcom eventually started to milk this fucking game for all that it was worth.  There are SIX official different releases of the game, and they are ALL different.  Casual players wouldn’t notice the changes, but the pros do.  There were also clones of the game created as well.  Rainbow Edition always makes me laugh.  But with shitty clones of a popular game, there are sure to be shitty cartoons and movies as well.

This is the part where you either laugh, cry, or get extreeeemely pissed off.  Capcom eventually went on to allow a live action movie to be made after the game.  Starring Jean Claude van Damme as Guile, and a whole bunch of other shitty actors, they proceeded to DESTROY this movie.  They pretty much took the characters and dumped then in the toilet.  Since when were Ryu and Ken THIEVES.  Since when was Balrog a traitor to Bison and becomes a good guy? And, lets be realistic, Ryu looked TOO asian in this movie.  I mean, I know he is Japanese in the game, but he doesnt look like fuckin Bruce Lee (and the character that DID look like Bruce Lee, Fei Long, was omitted so they can put a character in that WASNT IN THE GAME!)  Also, why did they pick Van Damme to be Guile?

Riiiiiiight.

It doesnt stop their either.  They also thought it was a FANTASTIC idea to make a cartoon for this game as well.  I don’t even want to talk about the show, as it had the most HORRENDOUS animation that I had ever scene.  Also, Guile goes CRAZY with the amount of sonic booms that he throws.  These videos can only describe how bad it was…

And it STILL doesn’t end there.  This newest movie with Chun Li is something I refuse to see unless I downloaded it.  One, Kristin Kreuk isn’t even ASIAN!!!!!!( Well she is a little Asian)  So for the last movie, they get someone that is too Asian, and for this one she isnt Asian enough.  I heard their were some good fight scenes, but too bad they can’t make a good movie.

Capcom doesn’t even give a fuck either.  A PR guy was quoted as saying, “Critics were unkind to the first Street Fighter movie as well, but that film has been ridiculously profitable for Capcom over the last decade. The original SF movie still generates millions of dollars in royalties for Capcom every year, thanks to cable, foreign distribution, home video, DVD and Blu-ray sales.”

Really, who would want to even BUY that awful movie!
