There are many reasons that I am looking forward to February*, but one of the big ones is this . . .
Hell to the yes, baby! Way back in the day, I loved the hell out of this game when I would play it with my friend Snuffy. He would float around, trying all the different game characters, but I always stuck with the one who did right by me time after time. My heart belonged to Chun-Li, the most ass-kicking (and really only) girl in the whole game.
Sure, as the years passed and as game companies realized the benefit of having female characters, I would play as other girls. But none of the panty-flashing steroid hos from Dead or Alive ever quite compared to the glorious gal with the Spinning Bird Kick.
I have one vacation day left until May and I am seriously considering taking it off on the 17th just so I can spend the day luxuriating in this awesome form of nostalgic ass-kicking.
Welcome back, baby. We’ve missed you.
*Those reasons being that it’ll mean the hell that is January is finally over, director Edgar Wright is hosting a movie night at The Bloor, and that the new Scott Pilgrim is coming out!
