This weeks missions will net you 4,300 FM, minus 2,500 FM if your getting Bison's Crossover Costume and another 1000 FM for each attempt against Ultra Geif I'm 0/3 so far using Rashid, then Karin, and lastly Guile....If I try again I'm gonna give Lady Falke a go, her pole might keep him at a safe distance.




Next week we're fighting the Upper Class Shadaloo Soldier for 5,000 FM X3 for a 1000FM entry fee.

On the 29th the Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection launches! I'm looking forward to playing Alpha3 online! And I'm hoping I can get some friends over to get some SF1 action going lol! And I'm excited to finally play 2nd impact at home!

Just for Shits and giggles who knows what Anime the first image is from and which character is he the inspiration for?


As always keep fighting the good fight....stop lag switching and avoid sodium overdose. Be smart with your FM don't complain about the XBM golden soldiers because the alternative is Capcom charging RM for all DLC characters.

The Predator Teaser Trailer thoughts and Impressions

From the director of Iron Man 3? ....really? That's how you're first piece of marketing begins? I would've gone with "From the actor that played Hawkins in the original Predator".
I like the juxtaposition of the boy playing with his toy and the Predator ship crashing on Earth. So this kid reads popular mechanics.....mmmmkay >.>
So this predator ship crashes in nowheresville, home town, USA and has a very Spielbergian look to it. I'm having horrible recurring memories of AVP: Requiem...... 

And Oliva Munn works as some sort of medical type there along with prince Adam (He Man) who happens to be an assassin along with Keegan-Michael Key....kay.

OK so what it looks like from this trailer the Predator was driving drunk and crashes on earth, loses his hit then goes looking for it in. Blondie finds it and mails it to his son in tiny town USA where he lives with his mommy (Olivia Munn) and she is able to determine this alien has been planet hoping and upgrading his shiz.
So what is an alien gonna find on earth that his own civilization (that can travel in space) doesn't have?
Shane Black does have an impressive resume but this doesn't seem that good.

The Return of the Rapidly Advancing Shadaloo Grunt SFV AE Extra Battle

This weeks new missions go live tonight at midnight and we're getting a second round against the Rapidly Advancing Shadaloo Grunt.
We've seen this douche bag before he costs 500 FM ea. fight X3 for a total of 30K EXP.
So as a public service to the FGC here's my fights against this silver bucket head!

Go to Versus Mode, Choose Versus CPU, set the difficulty to 1 (for an easier life), choose Union Station Stage, choose an opponent, and beat your opponent in the center of the stage, and hit them with a combo that will make the old guy dancing around stumble and fall down. I happened to be on the Union Station Stage in a Battle Lounge when the missions went live....




 After finishing the missions go tackle this weeks eXtra Battle Mode fights, this week there’s two;

 1) Guile’s 4th [Q&I] Crossover costume challenge for 2,500 FM

This weeks missions will net you 5,300 FM, plus an additional 7000 FM for the month of May if you bought the CPT 2018 package, plus 6000FM for defeating the Middle Class Shadaloo Grunt after the 1,500FM fee for the 3 attempt's. I beat the Middle Class Shadaloo Grunt 2/3 times so I only got 3,500 FM but it's still better than some weeks where I end up in the red.

Capcom Unity has posted the May schedule for the XBM Shadaloo Soldiers


Starting May 10th we get the Rapidly Advancing Shadaloo Grunt for 10,000 EXP X3 for a 500 FM entry fee.

Also Bison will be getting his Crossover Costume starting May 10th.! Astaroth the final boss from Ghosts and Goblins. Below is the schedule.


I'm probably gonna pass on Bison's Crossover costume as I'm hovering at just over 100K FM and I want to be sure I have enough FM for Cody when he launches!

As always keep fighting the good fight....stop lag switching and avoid sodium overdose. Be smart with your FM don't complain about the XBM golden soldiers because the alternative is Capcom charging RM for all DLC characters.

Red Dead Redemption II Trailer #3

Last generation Rock Star gave us probably one of the best games of that generation, no not GTA IV, Red Dead Redemption! I was absolutely absorbed in the story and loved the open world online. Now I didn't get the game at launch but my friend Krogenar lent me his copy and I was immediately stunned by the beauty of the world of New Austin, West Elizabeth and Nuevo Paraiso. The game also had one of gamings greatest characters, John Marston! I would put him in the same league as Solid Snake, Mario, Ryu and Samus.

 The game was full of memorable characters besides John Marston, Bonnie MacFarlane a rancher that saves him from a fatal gun shot wound from a former gang member Bill Williamson, then there's the con man Nigel West Dickens, the creepy grave robber Seth Briars, Irish the drunk, Landon Ricketts the old gunslinger living out his remaining days in Neuvo Paraiso, the rebel Abraham Reyes, and Dutch van der Linde the former leader of the gang John Marston was a member of , and who agent Edgar Ross of the Bureau of Investigation is ultimately is after.
Which leads us to Red Dead Redemption II coming out October 26th! DRD II is a definite day 1 purchase for me!

SFV AE Falke Story Mode and Initial Impressions

ACHTUNG! The Falke has landed and despite her simplistic inputs which many said would made her SHIZA, I disagree.
I'm no fan of the noob input scheme but her's felt a little less jarring than Ed's.
After purchasing her I hit up her Story mode and creepy Bison apparition can you say Pedoloo???
Check it out.



I also started her trials and seeing her standing next to Ryu made Ryu look like a roided up Zwerg.
I flew thru Survival Easy with her to start unlocking her colors, and I took her into a couple casual matches. My initial impression is if your opponent gets in Falke struggles, her sweet spot is definitely mid screen!
Guten Tag! 

The Venom trailer that has Venom

OK not bad, I like the paranoia angle and I love the Eddie Brock/ Symbiote Gollum moment @ 01:48!
Seeing Avi Arad as a producer makes me nervous, my expectation level for this movie's quality is about on par with the original Blade movie. That's not a bad thing but I think Venom will get lost in the Super-hero-itis from Avengers IW and what ever other Super hero flicks come out this year.
