spill in aisle 13

good thanksgiving, busy fun, exhausting weekend. good food, good drinks, some gastrointestinal adventure, some role-playing adventure, and a severe lack of sleep. the giants broke my heart.

i just broke 35k for NaNo. even if i miss the mark, i've done some really neat work, built a world, and i get to keep that, regardless if i break 50k or not.
the scary thing is that i was anticipating 60-75k for this story, and i don't see it working out that way. went to dig up the rock poking out of the front yard of my brain, and unearthed the tip of a boulder.

in other news, i am getting a new computer, and a screaming video card, as a result of a dell deals raffle thing that i won quite unexpectedly on friday. my new processor has more cache than the first pc i ever used had on its hard drive. the world is quite a tangle.

i am out of town thursday-sunday. i plan on polishing and outlining past the kernel of what was born via NaNo.

i have a lot to do.

collegehumor.com has a really funny series they started recently about the washed up gang from street fighter. highly recommend it if you haven't already seen it.

street fighter II turbo is still my favorite fighting game.

Street Figher II (the original) for SNES was only slightly edged by "Championship Edition" where you could play as the original bosses and also play same character vs. itself. the xmen vs. street-fighter (and later marvel vs. capcom) games were pretty fun, too, for all the players you could have.

turbo was for sissies.

MvC was good times
Street Fighter was my first love, but the original Soulcaliber for the Playstation was my greatest. Dark Stalkers, Samurai Showdown and Marvel vs Capcop were all great fun, but never really had the depth for me. Clayfighters and Killer Instinct still hold a tie for my favorite SNES fighting carts.

Re: MvC was good times
killer instinct was one of the last games i bought for SNES. it was after my subscription to nintendo power had lapsed though and before the real dawn of the internet, so i wasn't able to get the codes to do the really sick combos and special moves. i may well have ended up enjoying it more than street fighter if i'd been able to do those.

fine, then i had the championship edition, because i was the baddest shit when i played as vega, although my best character was always ken

gotta go with the katz here
the version where you could play bosses or same character head to head was way more of a challenge - it got you apst the bs where it was the toggle race to chung-li, and really pitted to masters of a certain character's fighting style against each other.

i once tanned the hide of a kid who had never lost with chung-li using blanka, and he insisted from that moment on that i teach him how to use blanka. after teaching as much as i could, i played chung-li and kicked his ass with her, at which point he accused me of cheating. when i pointed out to him that i used all the same tricks he had tried to use on me, he was much chagrined.

Re: gotta go with the katz here
does anyone still have their SNES? we need a tournament of some kind for sure...

i have mine
bit it is not hooked up. i have an emulator loaded on my xbox, so i have pretty much every game you can think of for most of the older systems all on one box.

i could be convinced to have a tourney

Re: i have mine
it's not the same with xbox's controllers, but i'd be down for whatever. and i take back my initial statement about the championship edition being slightly better. i now recall that there was a code so both players could use the same character in the original. those original 8 really were never surpassed in my mind. okay, some of them were pretty useless (uh, e honda? Dhalsim--aka the beginner character), but Ryu, Ken, Chun Li, Blanka, and Guile. i miss those guys.

Re: gotta go with the katz here
by the way, thanks for posting that link. it is pretty funny and really want to see the rest. hearing that music at the beginning makes me very nostalgic and makes me want to grab a SNES controller and play...
