Street Fighter V: Sean Gameplay?



So in a previous post, I reviewed what seemed to be a preview of Sean in story mode. I expressed my opinions on how they’ve could’ve potentially constructed him but there was no official word from Capcom whether or not he was going to be an official playable character. Well….since I’m into everything underground, I knew it would be a matter of time until a genius modification was created by a hacker. This particular mod uses Ken as the base, so it’s Sean with all of Kens signature moves. Overall I think it’s a pretty good mod but I’d like to see him a bit more fit and in his traditional yellow Gi. Check below to see him in action.

Tekken 7 Tho…


So initially when I heard Tekken 7 was being released, I wasn’t excited what so ever because I haven’t followed up with the series since their 5th installment. I always thought it was a good fighting game but I was always distracted with Capcom releases. When they announced that Akuma from the Street Fighter series would be featured in the game, it caught my attention but I was upset at first because I was already disappointed with Street Fighter’s latest drops and to hear that they are sharing one of their signature characters had me looking sideways. Now after seeing him in action and the overall gameplay for the game, it’s looking like Tekken 7 might give Street Fighter 5 a run for their money. Come on Capcom, how are you going to let another game company make your character look better than yours? Hey it’s just my opinion but the graphics + visuals are looking savvy and way more realistic as compared to Street Fighter 5’s cartoony presentation. I’ll admit, the recent updates, character releases & graphic touch ups are bringing back some hope for SFV a tad bit but overall the visual presentation in Tekken 7 is looking official. Not to mention, Bandai Namco announced that it will be available for PC via Steam.

Sean Cameo In Street Fighter V Story Mode



Recently IGN sat down with Peter Rosas to speak about Street Fighter V’s story mode expansion. At first I wasn’t to interested but decided to check the link out anyway to see clips of what to potentially expect. Although I was somewhat satisfied that the story mode wasn’t just a lazy remodeling of the sprites, I still wasn’t feeling the graphics. I am glad that I did go ahead and click the link because they featured a 3D rendition cameo of Sean chilling out playing portable video game handheld.


We’ve seen previous snapshots & concept art that leaked the internet which show him in a much younger appearance as compared to Street Fighter 3rd strike. They’ve kept the theme of the original leak, with him sitting playing his handheld but they’ve edited his costume design along with a hairstyle update that shows him with extended dreadlocks. I’ll be honest, I would’ve like to see him in a more athletic built being that he is a martial artist and basketball player. Now this cameo still doesn’t confirm weather or not Capcom will be releasing Sean as a playable character but it was cool to see that they are making attempts to listen to the audiences requests. Below is my concept art of what Sean in Street Fighter 5. Maybe I should consider collaborating with Capcom…heh.


My life is complete: Final Fantasy VII Remake



So ever since Square-Enix, formally known as SquareSoft, announced that they will be remaking Final Fantasy VII, I was ready to quit everything, find a box with electricity and dedicate the rest of my life to playing this game because HANDS DOWN, FINAL FANTASY VII (7) was the BEST RPG (In my opinion) that ever came out till this day. The story was so in depth along with the complexity of the characters & individual uniqueness. Up until now, I’ve been following independent game modifiers who have made their own version of Final Fantasy VII remake by hacking the original PS1 version, which were pretty good tbh but now it’s official that there will be an up to date version with hardcore graphics. Unfortunately there are no official release dates, so fans will be left with blue balls until any announcements are made. Till then, enjoy this killer remix to the winning theme as well as one of my favorite summons that made me feel like a god every time I executed it.

Friends & family have asked why I have not been contributing, posting or having any discussions on the topic of “fashion/street fashion”. To be honest, any one who knows me knows I tend to get bored very easily and lately the “scene” has been quite boring, repetitive and in my opinion washed out…but hey, that’s just my opinion. So I gracefully bowed out and have been doing me while returning to my core source of inspiration… Japanese Anime + Video gaming. So as I stroll in the cut like many of my shadow characters, I themed my looks to be partially inspired by characters of my favorite graphic novels and/or video games. Technically it’s not Cosplay because I’m not dressed around in a karate gi or spiderman costume but I’ll implement various elements to the look and dubbed it Street Cos.
