"Chun Li Looks Good For 48 Years Old!!"

When you come across the amount of awesome people I do within the video games community you tend to want to know their background and how they originally got into video gaming.

My favourite stories from people are the ones where they reminisce about early video games memories as I just love to wallow in the nostalgia of being blown away by a NES, SNES or SEGA Mega Drive.

To me and a whole generation of awesome dudes and dudettes these were the formative years of our love affair with video games.

Today I would like to introduce you all the Bethany who is the latest member of the Games Freezer family.

Bethany has agreed to share with us all her video games life story so far and I know a lot of this will bring smiles to all those people who were 80's & 90's kids....

☆ My Favourite Street Fighter 2 Memories Inspired By Retro Asylum ☆ #retrogaming @RetroAsylum1 @RetroRic79

Share This Post On Share to Facebook Share to Twitter Share This Post On

Listening to the latest Retro Asylum podcast which is totally dedicated to Street Fighter 2 has made me realise how much of an effect the game had on me.

There's a brilliant appearance from @retroric on the podcast that brought it all back home to me.

After listening to the podcast I felt compelled to write a Street Fighter 2 article to get these memories off of my chest.

☆ Graphical Wonders From 8 & 16 Bit Past ☆ #Retrogaming #GamersUnite #C64

When I was a young inexperienced gamer in the mid 80's to early 90's graphics were one of the first things that I looked for in a game.

Maybe that's a superficial mindset but you have to remember that I was only 8 years old and having been brought up on Spectrum, Commodore 64 and Atari visuals that were hit n miss in terms of quality, any advancement in graphics were always met with an open mouthed disbelief as I witnessed either the latest hardware blowing my mind or maybe an example of someone being ultra clever and resourceful with the current hardware of the time.

Retrogaming is best enjoyed using your favourite controller.

Whether that be a Joystick, Joypad or even a Gaming Mouse.

Over the years I have found that I can only play some games properly with one particular type of controller and if it isn't that controller I turn into a cack-handed jibbering idiot!

Read on to find out more about my favourite controllers and the games that they make me great at!

"I was watching the Street Fighter movie the other day, and was thinking this is truly awful. 
I mean, why would anyone cast Kylie Minogue as Cammy? Is she English? (no, but I suppose she can attempt an accent). 
Can she act? (um I suppose she was fine in Neighbours) 
and does she have a martial arts background? (nope).

You're pummeling your opponent to within a 10th of their remaining life bar when you get to point that you can either finish them off with a mis timed soft punch to the arm or you could unleash an almighty finishing manoeuvre that lights up the screen and makes time itself sllllllllooooowwwww down.......

For all the button bashers out there its a case of a mistimed jab will do as long as you win.......

BUT .... For those Video Game Beat Em Up connoisseurs out there, finishing off the opponent MUST be accomplished stylishly with MAXIMUM WOW FACTOR!

☆I Am Street Fighter☆ @AREA5 #RetroGaming #GamersUnite

Share This Post On Share to Facebook Share to Twitter Share This Post On

If you are a gamer of a certain age you will remember the heady days of arcade greatness when Street Fighter II cabinets were in every chip shop, video shop and Newsagents across the land.

With those cabinets came the queues of "New Challengers" and wannabe Kings Of The Arcade.

It was a time when just as many people came to watch as those who came to play.

Street Fighter II was and still is a phenomenon that so many of us have enjoyed both in its natural habitat (the arcade) and at home on the many many console conversions.

Don't forget the hacked editions of the arcade machine that also appeared in the arcades such as the "Rainbow Edition" 

Such was the demand for these hacked editions that Capcom had to release an official updated version of Championship Edition.

The "I Am Street Fighter" Documentary captures the spirit and feel of Street Fighter and really gets across what it felt like to play Street Fighter back in those halcyon days of arcade gaming.

There is a part where they talk about the symbolism of putting your 20p or 25c on the machine to signify that YOU are the next challenger which really resonated with us.

Please take an hour of your time to sit down and watch this gem of a documentary and hopefully you will enjoy it just as much as we did.


Let us know what you thought of this brilliant documentary?


What other cool Videogames documentaries or films would you recommend for us at Games Freezer to watch?
