The original, but sadly not the best
Street Fighter II: The World Warrior was nothing short of a phenomenon. If you're old enough to remember when the game hit the Super Nintendo two decades ago then you may recall it as all you ever thought of or spoke about for weeks on end. The gaming world seemed to gravitate around Capcom's seminal one-on-one...
To say that the original Street Fighter II was a genre-defining game would be the understatement of the century. Not only did the game take the one-on-one fighting game idea and take it to heights never before reached, it also single-handedly kicked off a fighting game craze that's still in full swing to this very day and spawned...

If you're into anime, then chances are you can remember the first movie or TV show that got you hooked on the medium; your "gateway drug", if you will. For some, it might be TV shows like DragonBall Z or One Piece, others perhaps a specific movie like Ghost in the Shell or Akira (indeed, I had to really go back through the memory...
Featuring the famous Nintendo Gameplay Counsellors
Just recently, we caught a sneaky glimpse at the dedicated workers testing and packing NES consoles back in 1989.

Play some of gaming's most iconic consoles and games
Walking into the Basement Gallery of the London Science Museum, you're greeted by an uncomfortable warmth that often comes with gaming events, but this is soon forgotten when you cast your eyes over the sea of consoles lying in wait. We're all so used to seeing old gaming systems locked away...
That's quite the headline, right?
The wide impact of video games means that little references can appear anywhere. In movies. During TV shows. In books. Or, in the case of Capcom's Street Fighter II, as a hidden screen on a can depalletizer used in the brewing industry. Yes, you read that right. Reddit poster RonnieBringIt has uploaded a video...
Also worked on Streets of Rage and Shining Force artwork
Mick McGinty, the man behind the iconic SNES Street Fighter II cover artwork, has died. McGinty was an immensely talented artist, as is evidenced by the impressive collection of work on his personal site, but for gamers of the '90s, his output will be almost synonymous with video game covers...

You spin me right round
Another of video gaming's greatest myths has been confirmed, 30 years after it first did the rounds in a pre-internet world. The myth relates to Capcom's insanely popular Street Fighter II: The World Warrior, and the notion that the original version of the game, first released in arcades in 1991 and later ported to the SNES,...
