Because in those days I was a starving artist that played games all the time.

@hailinel: Dumb as in worthless, there is a very small subset of armor skills that are really useful outside of very specific situations.

I just want to know stats. What armor set skills does it have? Probably dumb ones.

Just realized @sir_gunblade has made his run to the top 3 unscathed. Not a single loss. I guess I don't feel so bad getting put into losers by him.

Ah, the joys of not even remotely having anything like a style guide on the wiki. One day Jeff will come down from the mountain with that style guide written on two stone tablets. One day.

Snark aside, I do kinda like that about the wiki. You can tell that some user put their own personality into the style of Steamworld Dig article. Somebody should go edit the Bastion article to entirely be in the tone of Rucks, the narrator.

Not gonna lie, I went into the UNIEL wiki and took out most of the conversational language.

Ono's panel at SDCC didn't have much to impart about the future of the Street Fighter series other than a series of new "Summer" costumes coming to USFIV including:

  • Rufus in scuba gear
  • Elena in a summer dress
  • Poison in a Chinese dress
  • Dan in golfwear
  • Decapre in a bathing suit
  • Dudley in a school uniform
  • Blanka in Hawaiian garb
  • And more...

Outside of this DLC, Ono said not to expect any more fighting game announcements this year. As a small bonus USFIV players can unlock a special "Capcom Fighters" title for their online player card by entering the following code by going through Player Data > Prize Code on the main menu:


I wonder if they're going to release costumes for all 44 characters, and how they're going to handle the pricing. Hopefully the lot won't cost more than $20, because whatever it is I'm going to pay it.

EDIT: Oh fuck wait they just announced that Street Fighter: Assassin's Fist is getting a sequel, Street Fighter: World Warrior. YO GET HYPE!

EDIT2: Someone uploaded screenies of all the new costumes so here you go:

I though Arika owned the rights to D.Dark ;)

EDIT3: This thing won't let me upload all these screen side by side so I guess I'll just stack and spoiler them

Also fuck Iron Man 3, The Mandarin should've been played by Chow Yun Fat or Ken Watanabe or something. Yeah, whatever, the film cooked up reasons that it made sense for him to be played by Ben Kingsley, but that was still kinda bullshit.

Then again, the Mandarin is kind of a bullshit character.

As a Chinese guy who speaks very poor Mandarin I admit I was kinda bummed out but intrigued by the notion of Ben Kingsley playing the Mandarin, but then I saw the movie and it made complete sense within the context of the Marvel Cinematic Universe's version of the Mandarin.

Didn't realize until much later that Killian was supposed to be a nod to Fing Fang Foom. Really wanted dumb magic alien rings and a space dragon.
