So what happens when a popular game releases on an inferior console? This list shows you exactly what happens, and the results aren't appealing!
"Now when most people think of sexually attractive characters in gaming, they usually assume it’s only female characters. Developers know that the men of gaming also have to “look good” too. That’s why we’ve sprinkled in a couple of the hottest men in video games as well."
"Last year, (2009) was referred to by many as the year of the fighting game. The ridiculously anticipated Street Fighter 4 blew gamers away and more or less revived the genre. Marvel vs Capcom 2 returned to modern consoles, a move applauded by both new and hardcore fans. Tekken  landed on a non-Sony console for the first time ever, earning mostly positive feedback and reviews. Not to mention Guilty Gear developer Arc System Works made the beautiful BlazBlue. Overall it was a fantastic year ..."
"When it comes to fighting games, Capcom is still considered the king among many gamers. The solid gameplay offered in Capcom franchises keep hardcore virtual combatants coming back for more. But there is one thing that draws us in besides the physics engines and collision detection. It's the female fighters. That's why we've compiled a list of the sexiest female characters from Capcom fighters. Sure the pickings were slim when women first entered the Capcom fighting scene back in Street Fight..."
"In the world of video game vixens, the ladies of Street Fighter are among some of the toughest and sexiest. But it was not always this way. In 1987, the original Street Fighter made its debut in arcades around the world without any female characters. It wasn’t until 1991, with the release of Street Fighter II, that the first female character was introduced: the sexy Chun-Li. Today there are over 30 female characters in the Street Fighter franchise and thousands of enthusiasts who dress like t..."
"Tyger! Tyger uppercut!
Tyger knee him in the gut.
What jump forward jab or fierce
Could brave this fearful Street Fighter?
What a find! Street Fighter and poetry usually go together like peanut butter and tobacco but we've found these awesome poems that were written with real poems in mind. For example, "Tyger Uppercut" is inspired by William Blake's "The Tyger".
There's also: Carrion Console (Gerard Manley Hopkins' "Carrion Comfort), Fight Song (John Berryman's "Dream Song 14"..."

"Video game characters are increasingly becoming the poster children for gym membership. With most of gamings heroes and heroines being chiseled, pert and with cheek bones you could grate cheese on, there seems to be less and less room for the more gelatinous gentleman in the industry.
Thats why we thought wed celebrate those characters who said no to Atkins and still managed to pull off moves that would shame most gold-winning Olympians. But while they might seem fighting fit on your co..."

"In the latest Playstation: The Official Magazine, the rumor section notes that we should be seeing the first two Grand Theft Auto games along with Street Fighter Alpha (Alpha was given a rating by the ESRB a little over a month ago) hitting the Playstation Network. Just as Konami is releasing Metal Gear Solid: The Essential Collection (PS2) near the time of MGS4, releasing the original GTA titles as cheap downloads would be a smart move. If true, pricing will be a curious matter, as you can d..."
