New Street Fighter…must…be…purchased.

June 26th, 2008 | No Comments | Posted in tech

If you even midly played video games in the early 90′s, it’s pretty much a given that you spent a good chunk of that time playing some variation of Street Fighter II.

After much tweaking/futzing with the Street Fighter formula (Alpha, EX, etc), Capcom has come to their senses and is just releasing the good’ole original version, just updated with “HD” graphics.  I like that.

After checking out these videos, the deal has pretty much been sealed that this game will be purchased when it’s released.


JJ Twigs Pizza and Pub lives up to it’s name

I met a fraternity brother out for dinner/drinks the other night.  We went to JJ Twigs at the corner of Big Bend and Dougherty Ferry.  The two things that rocked:

Pizza: Their specialty is a unique twist on deep-dish…it’s a double-decker thin crust pizza.  Doesn’t sound like much, but trust me, it’s damn good.

Beer:  I’m not much of a beer aficianado, but I always had a soft spot in my heart for the AB spring seasonal brew: Spring Heat – Spiced Wheat.  Unbeknownst to me, AB has decided to make it available year-round and have given it the unfortunate name Shock Top.  Sounds like something I would drink while I airboarded from 20,000 ft on my way to compete in the X-Games.  If you get the draft variety, it’s served with an orange slice, which to me, is a great compliment.  Stupid name, great beer.
