PNG Audiophile: You’re the Best Around Ryu!


I grovel before you for forgiveness about the audio quality and advise that you do not turn this up very loud due to audio spikes.  I assure you that the next episode will be a bit more balanced with less crackles and pops.  In this episode we talk about about what we’ve been playing, Street Fighter 4, Resident Evil 5, and 50 Cent: Blood in the Sand.  The song scattered through the podcast is Joe Esposito’s You’re the Best Around from the Karate Kid soundtrack.   Click the link to download or subscribe to the podcast by clicking the link on the side.

I apologize if this shows up twice in your feed. It looked like the podcast feed wasn’t taking so I’m trying to repost to force it!

  1. Ugh, no more drinking and podcasting for this guy.

    That was very entertaining btw. I just had one issue with your podcast. You guys said that you were a little disappointed that SFIV didn’t change enough from the other street fighters. But, I’m guessing that none of you played it enough to realize what they did change. First of all, they added ultra combos, which at first may just seem like glorified super combos that you’ve seen one thousand times before. But, the difference is that it charges as you get hit, so if you’re playing some cheap Ryu online, throwing dragons punches and hadoukens like crazy, then you can hit him with an ultra combo that will take away equal damage that he dealt to you.

    Also, they added the focus attacks which will stop any attack thrown at you, while allowing you to throw your own attack at the opponent. The focus attacks can also break any block when charged enough, so it’s a good way to beat up people online who like to turtle the whole time. It takes awhile to really understand when and how to execute the focus attacks but when you get it, the gameplay seems much deeper.

    And if that wasn’t enough they added the EX attacks, which drain your super charge meter. It gives you the choice of saving it up for a super combo, or using it slightly over time with the EX attacks. The EX attacks are really just your everyday unique attack, but with extra power and speed. So, Ryu’s hurricane kick, when executed as an EX attack, is much much faster and deals a ton more damage. All you do to perform this move is do the normal motion of the stick and press the button you assigned as the lk+mk+hk. Each EX attack drains one section of the super meter which is charged by attack your enemy. All three of these new features make Street Fighter a completely different experience, much deeper than the Street Fighter 2 Turbo HD Remix I’ve been playing of late, or any Street Fighter for that matter. However, the one thing that never changes is that the jerk you’re playing with will ALWAYS choose Ken or Ryu.

    Sorry for the wall of text, but I had to defend my sweet, sweet Street Fighter. It’s Indestructible.

  3. Jeff and Logan might not show you any quarter on this as their opinions on Capcom and Resident Evil 5 could be used against Capcom and Street Fighter IV. If anything can be said about Capcom, they’re fairly loyal to the fanbases of their more treasured series.

  4. I’m sorry, I don’t listen to girls.

    Yeah i didn’t even want to even go into my thoughts on RE5. Lets just say I agree with James mostly.

    Logan you got owned, its okay to be a tad salty 😀

  6. To be fair I stuck up for Street Fighter fans, as did Dave, he just whined about the price but thats coming from the same guy who took MY undrank beer home from the Super Bowl party. I love Capcom as was evidenced by thoughts on Okami and my homo man crush on Dante.

    So, in this case, quarter will be granted. Remember this day with tempered fondness, as next time any of you fools disagree with me…. the city will burn! Women and children first!
