ERRG. Ryu–you wander the planet and fight people. That does not make you some kind of philospher, that makes you a bum–and a bum with aggression issues at that. So I don’t want to hear about your quest for power or for something that is not power but can still only be found by beating up people of various ethnicities, okay? You’re just an asshole who like to beat people up. Do not get all pretentious about it.
And while we’re on the subject, hey Capcom–Street Fighter is not Sun Tzu’s Art of War, okay? It is a fighting game. Where people punch luchadores, green fur-covered men, and Japanese schoolgirls, at that. No one needs some kind of bullshit examination into the human psyche here, and no one wants it,.either. What was the problem with the tournament idea? Was that not deep enough for you? Look, you’re making a game so kids can beat up people of various ethnicities and not get thrown in jail. Do not get all pretentious about it.
I’m spent. It’s up to you guys to freak out about the voices in the comments.
Robert Bricken is one of the original co-founders of the site formerly known as Topless Robot, and its first editor-in-chief, serving from 2008-12. He brought the site to prominence with “nerd news, humor and self-loathing” as its motto, raising it from total internet obscurity to a readership in the millions, with help from his savage “FAQ” movie reviews and Fan Fiction Fridays. Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
