Street Fighter II betrays The Max

30 Jan

Guess who we put our money on?

sumo_012909.jpgThe above photo is why The Max doesn’t bet — we lose. The main reason we took Pee-Wee in this wager wasn’t exactly a good reason, either. We just hated using E. Honda in the old school video game, Street Fighter II.

Our favorite Street Fighter choices in order:


Ken/Ryu — They were the basically the same dude with different clothes on.


Blanka– Part wolf. Part man. All Brazillian, baby.
Guile– He’s from the U.S. so we got his back, but he had hair like Kid fromHouse Party.
Chun-Li– She was small — only a few inches on our little TVs, but could pack a punch.
Dhalsim– Yoga master and scrawnier version of Stretch Armstrong.
E. Honda– Just plain stunk, but he was cheap. You picked him if you wanted an easy win.
Zangief — A muscle-bound Russian wrestler who moved like he was made out of Legos.
*Note: This does not include Super Street Fighter II or any of the main bosses you must fight to win. These are part of the OG roster.

    Okay – you’ve totally lose me on this one. Can we go back to making random Super Bowl predictions?

    You never played Street Fighter II? Oh man, Jules. Random, yes, but the dude in the pic totally looks like E. Honda, and he’s a sumo wrestler, and it’s a sports (right?). But thanks for keeping us honest, Julia. Remember: Not every play is a gamebreaker.

    Hey Julia. This is Jack; I want to go on the record for having nothing to do with this post. It was all my brother. He’s a little odd.

    This is Jeff. I’m proud of my Street Fighter II (and Mortal Kombat) allegiances. I feel bad for those who never had the chance to experience how good it feels to dominate at an arcade game.
