Beloved Street Fighter character tests positive for steroid use

Japan — Street Fighter’s Ryu has tested positive for steroid use, sources have confirmed.

With Street Fighter V in production, combatants from all sides of the world must train to look their best. With so much on the line, the world warriors are willing to go through great lengths to win.

The aging fighter, who turns 51 this month has been bare-knuckles brawling since 1987 alongside his longtime training partner and friend Ken Masters.

“I knew something was different about him once his forearms became larger than his head,” said Masters. “Still,the guy is like a brother to me, and I know he trains hard and works hard. Steroid use isn’t uncommon in the Street Fighter tournament.”

“I won’t name names,” said Masters. “But they’re out there — they know who they are.”

Ryu could not be reached for comment at this time.

We have reached out to Capcom for further comment.

It’s that time of year again

It’s E3 time again. Fallout 4 has already been announced, Sony may unveil a 1TB PlayStation 4 and the surprises will keep coming.

I haven’t been particularly excited about an E3 in some time. The surprises were always gone by the time the event came around, and the major console makers had already revealed their latest machines.

This time, even though I’m not the giddy little blogger I was seven years ago, I am genuinely looking forward to hearing more details about some of the upcoming games, especially Fallout 4.

I’m also interested in another 4. Uncharted. The gameplay demo I saw sometime back was beautiful. Naughty Dog has been nothing but great since the Crash Bandicoot days, and nothing short of phenomenal since the release of the first Uncharted.

Also in the pipeline is Apple’s WWDC 2015. Typically,its platform for announcing new software. We should get a glimpse of the next version of OS X and iOS 9 (Bug fixes, please!).

Everyone was expecting a new Apple TV, but it seems like this may not be the case afterall.

Worth checking out: The Gaming Historian

I recently stumbled onto a YouTube channel for The Gaming Historian.

I’m enjoying it so far.

I’ve read a lot of book on the history of videogames, so there is quite a bit I’ve already learned about. Still, he has entertaining videos.

His videos so far seem relatively family-friendly. That’s quite a change from a lot of the stuff I watch on YouTube. Not that I’m against bad language. It’s just a nice change.

Here is his website: http://thegaminghistorian.com

This was worthy of coverage

Hillary Clinton’s lunch at a Chipotle was worth 600 words to a New York Times writer. I’m not going to bother linking to it.

EarthBound is still a favorite

This is still one of my favorite games of all time. It was the first JPRG I ever played.
