    Yer man Chris Scullion has written a huge article on the complete history of Street Fighter: https://tiredoldhack.com/2018/05/26/the-complete-history-of-street-fighter/amp/

    The 30th Anniversary Collection tournament at Combo Breaker is about 1 hour and 50 minutes into this video:

    I doubt input lag will be much of an issue. People loved 3rd Strike on dreamcast and that added a couple of frames over the arcade. As long as the lag is minimal and consistent it won't be an issue to adapt. Recent updates to Retroarch apparently allow for response times faster than original hardware so it should technically be possibly to have parity with the arcade originals. https://arstechnica.com/gaming/2018/04/better-than-reality-new-emulation-tech-lags-less-than-original-consoles/

    Such a shame this isn't cross-platform. With four online games across four systems that's splitting it into 16 different pools of players. Hopefully special moves being stricter than SFIV/V will improve my sloppy input habits.

    BIT.TRIP Runner 3

    Haha, good stuff. I do enjoy a high score battle, sir however I didn't like Runner 2 so I'll likely not bother with this one.

    God of War (2018) - Magni-ficent!

    Went back to do an optional challenge I didn't manage prior to finishing the game. I think I failed it 40-odd times. So satisfying to finally beat it, even if I had to play like a shitebag. Late game location and item spoilers:

    The controls aren't imprecise. If you've switched to the axe when you didn't intend to you've either pressed right on the dpad or triangle. A more patient style and some practice will resolve that.

    Nah; the combat is brilliant. It's not as rapid and precise as Bayonetta but it is very weighty and deliberate. There's great variety in the moveset eventually and, since returning to some challenges after finishing the game, it's gone up from a generous 7 out of 10 to a strong 8 for me. There's interesting combinations of runic attacks and juggles and sweeps to experiment with and many of the basic enemies are more vulnerable to certain approaches than others, just like they should be in a good action game. I hope the sequel doesn't rob you of skills from the start.

    Just earned the Platinum Trophy, which is rare for me (only five totsl and the other four are probably Street Fighter). I mostly enjoyed it however, while one of the optional realms is my favourite part of the game, the other is a dull grind. I appreciated the combat far more by the time I beat the final optional encounter than I did after clearing the main story. I guess a DLC announcement at E3 is inevitable; I'll let some friends borrow the game rather than selling it because I'd be very happy to play more when that new content arrives.

    The main story didn't grip me in God of War (likely didn't help that I played this right after finishing Firewatch) but I really enjoyed a lot of the incidental conversations and the game's attention to detail in dialogue. I think overall it felt like the setting the scene for a longer saga and I enjoyed it all enough to consider buying its inevitable sequel. It does feel odd and old fashioned to have so many invisible walls or light debris stopping a God from going where he'd like. I'm not too bothered about that but it can frustrate when hunting the trinkets. I'd rather the combat skills were all available far sooner and the game threw more encounters which force moveset variety and experimentation at you. I'm enjoying the late game challenges more than any of the combat leading up to it. I'd say it's worth persevering with until the combat opens up a little. It's all very satisfying a chunky and reminds me of God Hand more than anything since Anarchy Reigns.

    There's gonna be an 8-player exhibition tournament at Combo Breaker on 25th May. Daigo, Ricki Ortiz, Alex Valle and Justin Wong will be competing alongside other players who will bid in an auction for entry into the bracket. The game they play will be chosen randomly from the 12 in the collection before each match. Looking forward to Daigo and Justin playing the first game in the series and recreating the famous Evolution Moment #1. http://www.capcom-unity.com/strumslinger/blog/2018/05/16/street-fighter-30th-anniversary-collection-exhibition-at-combo-breaker-2018 Also there will be Super Turbo, Alpha 3 and 3rd Strike tournaments in the US and Canada this year too:

    You can remap the buttons for any game on PS4 via the system's Accessibility options I think.
