This is a  list of comics I feel are the most overlooked out of the new 52 and need as much attention as possible to avoid being cancelled.

Top Ten Street Fighter Characters

Ok, next My Top Ten list will be Street Fighter and it will hopefully make SF2 fans happy because they rule the list so Now I shall make the list

10. Yun and Yang- I like these guys, They are the  two coolest characters in in Third Strike. PERIOD.

9. Dhalsim- It’s the yoga man, when I saw this guy in the arcade I shit my self, basically if you want to be a bitch and run away he will stretch  and kick your ass! and that is why you don’t be a bitch. NEXT!

8. Guile- First Charge Character and first turtle Character and……………………he’s American! FUCK YEAH!

7. Ken- a clone but, with a more deadly punch then Ryu and Ryu’s best bud this guy will always be on a top ten list

6. Dan- because he’s Dan GODDAMNIT!!

5. Sagat- The first boss of Street Fighter and Ryu’s Deadly rival the king of Muai Thai is still one of the most deadly characters in Street Fighter game to this day.

4. Chun-Li- she has to be here, she is the first playable female character in fighting games and one of the fastest characters in the game

3. M. Bison (Dictator)- this guy is just pure evil and he will kill you with Psycho Crusher and is the center of a lot of the conflicts going on in SF.

2. Vega (Claw)- this one was tough and a lot of people would disagree however, I think Vega has such a unique design I can’t ignore him and his whole personally is just classic.

1. Ryu- this comes at no surprise, Ryu is THE original Street Fighter and he never stops training. He gained a lot of recognition (in the in-game story)   when he defeated Sagat and Scarred his chest with the Shoryuken. Ryu travels the world and defeats anyone who picks a fight with him but, most be careful that he does not get consumed by the Satsui no hado.

Honorable Mentions:

Balrog(Boxer)

E. Honda

Akuma

Zangief

Charlie

Top Ten Mortal Kombat Characters

Ok, on to the second list, this one will be a lot easier to handle because the characters are actually awesome and amazing back stories and I actually give a fuck about the series itself. On to the list………….

10. Sonya Blade- First lady of MK and shows up in just about every installment one of the first ladies of fighting along with Chun-li.

9. Johnny Cage- want a guy who is an ass but, can back it up when it comes to fighting?  Cage is your man, he has been dead once but, that didn’t fuckin’ stop him.

8. Kano- Australia has some of the worst people right? This leader of the Black Dragon clan is a ruthless Mother Fucker and also has a part-time job as a general is Shao Khan’s Army. HOLY SHIT.

7.Kung Lao- A shaolin Monk on the side of good and has a dope ass hat for cutting up all that Threatens Earthrealm and has skills on par with Liu Kang.

6. Kabal- Dopest looking good guy-turned-bad-guy most people forgot about him but, not me. This guy was awesome when he debuted in MK3 Then, just went missing for awhile hopefully he will show up in the new Kombat game.

5. Kitana- another character who is awesome, Kitana has just about been in every MK game sans MK Deception. Fights on the side of good and stepdaughter to Shao Kahn my my….

4. Rayden- So much shit could be put here but, I want to keep it short, Rayen is the protector of Earthrealm and fights along the side of good against Shang Tsung in the first Mortal Kombat tournament.

3. Sub-Zero- My favorite MK Character and one of the first Ninja’s to be palette-swapped. One of the original MK character to be a hit along with……….

2. Scorpion- Another popular Ninja when MK debuted and also has an awesome backstory to back it up I would explain it but, it’s a mouth full and I have to keep this small.

1. Liu Kang- I don’t  want to here what you think about Liu because he is one of the most Important main Characters in Fighting games Ever and many times saved Earthrealm from evil Sub-Zero ans Scorpion may be awesome but, Liu Kang is in his own awesome class that can’t be obtained.

There you go, if you disagree please feel free to tell me otherwise.

Top Ten King of Fighters Characters

After the appalling Game Informer Top Ten Fighting game Characters list I have decided to make my own list from multiple different series. First one being the King of Fighters games you my not like it but, I’m going to do one anyway. Number 10!

10. Kyo Kusanagi- One of my favorites and not much to say about him really he is just cool

9. Iori Yagami- Kyo’s enemy and overall badass of the series Iori plays a big role in KOF making his place on this list required

8. Terry Bogard- It’s Terry Fucking Bogard if he wasn’t on this list I’d shoot my self, Terry is the old timer and Mentor to his greatest enemy’s son, Rock Howard

7. Joe Higashi- Like Dan from SF only he doesn’t suck and is actually one of the best fighter’s in the game oddly enough he was the most awesome in CvS2 (Capcom vs SNK2)

6. Duck King- There is a reason Duck King is my Xbox Live avatar he is easily one of my favorite characters and I don’t think he is that important to the story but , he is just awesome.

5. Ash Crimson-  World’s most powerful trap, he walks and acts like a chick but, don’t underestimate this ladyboy he’ll beat your ass with his Guile Style of play (also another one of my favorites.)

4. Rock Howard- Son of Geese Howard, Trained by Terry and also one of the most popular Fighting game characters out there.

3. Ryo Sakazaki- I may not like Ryo but, he deserves a spot on the list for for being in the First KOF tournament and busting up bad guys to save his sister However, ever since SNK re-did the time line I’m not sure anymore but, whatever.

2. Geese Howard- This guy is an ass, Kills Andy and Terry’s father and tries to become Immortal but, Terry kicks his ass twice finally killing him the second time.

1. Rugal Bernstein- Talk about a bad guy, made arms and still wanted more power, Died only to came back as Omega Rugal and was killed by his own evil powers. this guy was just made of pure evil.

And there you go, If you don’t like it I don’t care.

My Top Ten favorite Dreamcast games.

It is no secret I love the Dreamcast and this will probably be the last article for that I write about it for a while so I’ll just talk about my top ten favorite Dreamcast games of all time.

10.Sonic Adventure 2
sonic_adventure_2

This was the last Sonic game on the Dreamcast and I have to say “what a send off!” This was also the last good Sonic before they ruined everything and tried to do something different. Just look at Mario, he uses the same 3-D formula every game and we eat that shit up.Sonic, on the other hand tried to be original and we hated it every game since.On a side note this game has the first appearance of Shadow, who had a spin-off called “Shadow the Hedgehog”.

9.Shenmue
shenmue-cover1

When I first played this game I too young and stupid to understand anything and now that I’m older and wiser I sought the game out finding at Game Haven for 10 bucks and it had everything included.The story of this game involves a young man named Ryo Hazuki and his quest to avenge his fathers death.Along the way he searches for any clues or leads (most notably asking about where he may find some sailors *wink*).Any way it wasn’t until I picked up another that I was really itching to play this game.What seemed to be 7 years since I had play it with my first Dreamcast, I popped it when and for some unknown reason I really got in to the game! It seems that when I played it originally I was just some punk who wanted to beat up old people and got pissed when I found out you had to be a good guy however, I’m a different person now.

8.NFL 2K2
nfl

I don’t ever play sports games but, for some reason I rented this because I heard good reviews and shit before I knew I was playing sports games.I can say without a doubt that the 2K series beats the shit of Madden when it comes to football games and 2K2 is a testament to that.

7.Zombie Revenge
zombie-revenge387540

This game is just awesome you run around,punch things,shoot things and listen to great death moans(damniiiiiiiiiiiiiitt).However, this is fucking hard thanks to its arcade perfect port and only 15 lives max (which is lame). make sure to play this game with a friend( and hopefully one that doesn’t suck ass and is named Miles).One cool thing about this game is that it takes place in the same universe as House of the Dead (“were meeting G, over there.”)

6.House of the Dead 2.
house-of-the-dead-2-54565377233

One of my favorite arcade games House of the Dead features awesome bosses, cool levels and an incredible Shakespearean level of acting. When I got my Dreamcast cast this was the game that had me glued to my T.V. giving me constant eyesores but, it was well worth it and beating the last boss is too epic for a light gun game.

5.Street Fighter 3: 3rd Strike

street_fighter_3_third_strike_ntsc

This is the perfect iteration of SF3 and has all the Street Fighter gimmicks we love and hate, (mostly Gil). Its parry made fireball spammers a thing of the past and got down to the nitty gritty.My only gripe in this game is that the characters (excluding a few) are pretty lame and just aren’t as cool or as memorable as the Street Fighter II cast.

4.Sonic Adventure

sonic_adventure

Two things this game has over SA2: 1. better camera, mostly due to bigger stages and 2. umm…………bigger stages really,like the one where you had to use the wind stone to access it, that stage was fun and the casino stage, you know what, SA has better stages than SA2 period! also the last boss was cooler.(not DBZ)

3.Crazy Taxi

crazy-taxi-usa

Forget 2 and 3, Crazy Taxi 1 was where it was at. With an awesome soundtrack that includes Bad Religion and Offspring while you drive like you’ve always wanted to, Crazy Taxi is just a good game with awesome  product placement that was cool back then,(and not totally overdone like it is now).Also challenges in this game  were almost impossible. What else is there to say about game that involves driving people to their destination in a very crazy manner.

2.Marvel vs Capcom 2

mvc2

This game is fucking crazy!!! 56 (28 characters for each side 19 of them from Fucking X-men and two of  x-men being bone claw Wolverine and adamantium claw Wolverine).Thats right two fucking Wolverines!!! That aside this game is still loved by many and fans still want that sequel, too bad Marvel is such a bastard it will probably never happen. My friends and I play this game like crazy wild animals thanks to its countless match ups and near infinite Hyper combo links(I can always count on Hojo to work time flip into anything no matter how useless it is. On top of that this game is still played in tournaments everywhere.

1. Soul Calibur

soulcalibur

“The soul still burns with…….Lizard Man!!!!!”

If you bought a Dreamcast, chances are you bought this game. Not only is this the best Dreamcast game it is also one of the best fighting games ever with a great cast of characters with unique weapon styles and fun make-your-own-combo kinda of fighting system, this was also a great example of a game that is easy to learn and hard to master with some characters that were easy to play with and some characters that require a bit more of attention but, in the end paid off because, you would be able to stomp button mashers that just flail wildly on a controller thinking their all that and a big of ruffles. In short, this game was just a fun time to be had by all with cool stages and characters that suit anyones tastes even people that don’t care to much for fighting games love this game and says a lot.

Well there it is and I hope you enjoyed reading this.
