Street Fighter: The Movie Review

Ruaidhri Walker

I actually like Street Fighter: The Movie. Perhaps like is too stronger word, but I definitely don’t mind it. I will start this debate of sorts with the films strongest, and potentially weakest point; Steven E. de Souza. This man wrote and directed this film, I imagine a lot of readers are asking who the hell is Steven E. de Souza? Well let me answer your question with multiple questions, Have you seen Die Hard? Have you seen Die Hard 2? Have you seen Beverly Hills Cop III? Well that chump wrote those films, quite simply good action films, he also wrote Judge Dredd but no ones perfect. Perhaps him directing Street Fighter was a mistake, but the writing isn’t all bad, there are a couple of plot points which are excellent, namely around Bison. Him turning around in his boudoir later in the film and looking longingly at his self portrait, something reminiscent of John Wayne Gacey’s painting is oddly depressing moment, only ruined be the set, costumes and soundtrack.

Zombies are awesome. I’ve written two reviews of games on this site which feature them, and I’ve even written an article on why we need more zombies in gaming. As such you would assume that a game like Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City would be a zombie apocalypse wet dream for me, and thankfully it is.

Dungeon Defenders Review – PSN/XBLA/PC

The first thing you should know about this game is that it’s a bully, a big mean bully, it picks on you the player and makes you feel like nothing. Now much like dealing with a real life bully there’s only two ways to sort it. The first is to cry and never return to a mile radius of said tormentor, the second and better option is to gather a few friends to beat the crap out of the bully.

Ugly Americans Review – PSN/XBLA

Ruaidhri Walker

Ugly Americans is a Comedy Central animated series based around an alternative reality version of New York where monsters, demons and freaks all co-inhabit with humans. The story follows Mark a social worker who helps integrate the various abominations into New York and find them jobs and homes. Being a big fan of the series I thought I should be the one to give the game a go and let you readers know how awesome it is. Unfortunately it’s not awesome, it’s a struggle.
