Got myself another DualShock PS3 controller. Wee bit big for our Saber though.

And this is why I picked up a second one. Had been meaning to get Street Fighter IV for many moons now but didn't have the time - until I was promted to brush up on my skills after I had seven shades of poo kicked out of me during the Street Fighter tournaments held at CJ Night in Singapore.
You can also see some of the action in Episode 11 of Culture Japan Season 2 - towards the end of the show below.

I kinda like having the paper manual to read before I get down to play the game. The PS Vita games dont come with manuals anymore - instead there is a scanned version in the game.
The first Street Fighter I played was back in 1991 - Street Fighter 2.


Back then I chose Chun-Li all the time. Fell in love with the series and when I started to learn Japanese, I picked up a lot of the lingo from the Street Fighter drama CD's.
The character I use these days however is Ryu.

Which is your fave Street Fighter character?

But now Street Fighter is all new and improved! Thanks to artwork from Kei Suwabe-san. I want to try the Hello Kitty character!
I've recently become a big fan of Hello Kitty and my Twitter and Facebook followers will probably know why ^^

Check out more characters at Kei Suwabe-san's site.
