Not Worth Fighting For

This may be my rantiest and crappiest blog entry ever, but I don't care. I'm angry.

I've given in twice to fighting games in a desperate attempt to join in on the so-called fun, and once again I've been screwed. It was SoulCalibur IV earlier this year, and now it's Super Street Fighter II: Turbo HD Remix. Luckily in this case, not only was Street Fighter cheap by comparison, but the game itself has given me a strong warning about Street Fighter IV before I potentially make another big mistake.

Speaking of which, why don't I list all of Capcom's mistakes?


What the hell is P?
Were the original devs using an Irish controller?

What the hell is K?
Just tell us whether it's A, B, X or Y please? We shouldn't have to decipher clues just to find out how to do a move.

How do you Charge?
Why do they insist on keeping this function a secret?

Where's the run button?
It shouldn't be quicker to jump than walk, but then again, all you do is jump because the 360 D-pads are so busted.

I cannot do Zangief's Super move.
It either does the wrong move or he jumps. And yeah, I filled the bar too.

Why can't I go back out of the character select screen?
Why is every button all of a sudden the confirm button? I don't see the point in this limited functionality. You think they would fix this crap.

Why doesn't the character select screen fill my TV display?
Do they think we would just never notice? Jeez, this isn't like the Wii; people actually notice this stuff.

Why isn't the gameplay in true widescreen?

What the hell is up with that? This was one aspect of the promotion of this game, and it's all a lie!


I could've used the Microsoft Points to buy the rest of the Rock Band DLC that I want, but it's too late now. It's all my fault, but it will never happen again. Unless we're talking about the Super Smash Bros. series, FIGHTING GAMES SUCK.



Get angry.

P and K are whatever you mapped them to be, P = Punch, K = Kick (ANY OF THEM). There is no run button. Geez, I've never played a fighting game in about ten years and I knew that.

Joke blog?

Yep. And in Brawl why is it that the word 'Balance' doesn't exist? Why does Nintendo just crank out the same game over and over again? Why does Mass Effect use 2 buttons to holster or take out your weapon and 0 to take cover?

Why does Halo 3's gameplay make me beg for it to be a 3rd person cover-based shooter?
Why does Kingdom Hearts gameplay SUCK?
Why did Harmonix have to fill a good portion of the Rock Band 2 setlist with metal.....bad metal?
Why the crap is a girl singing Visions? 



Games have problems. Suck it up. You don't like games that you buy sometimes. Suck it up.

given the amount of shit that gets posted by levio and others around here, its a testament to your stupidity that this ranks as one of the most retarded posts on giant bomb.
you are talking about street fighter and you dont know what they mean by P and K in the moveset list. stupid does not even begin to describe that statement

Clearly you know how, otherwise you wouldn't be asking by name
Where's the run button?

This isnt Mortal kombat 3/4 even though I love both this game never has needed one and doesn't now.
I cannot do Zangief's Super move.
It either does the wrong move or he jumps. And yeah, I filled the bar too.

Im not sure which one, this is one problem I may have, i cannot do any charge characters supers ever.
Why can't I go back out of the character select screen?

Im assuming different buttons for diff colors? the dreamcast ssf2t does this.
Why doesn't the character select screen fill my TV display?

what does that even mean? this isnt like the wii?

I feel dumber now after reading that.

You know, I was sitting here thinking how it was possible for you to even think this way and ask such dumb questions. I could not fathom anyone not knowing what P and K meant in...A FIGHTING GAME.

Then I read that you think Super Smash Bros. is a real fighting game.

So, are more then two buttons too complex for you? I guess so.

P really stands for your fist and K stands for your feet.  It isn't that hard.

You make it sound like you have never played a fighting game in your life.  How old are you?  Correction, its almost as if you have never played a video game in your life.
