10 Things You Probably Didn’t Know About Street Fighter

7 hours ago | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Capcom

Street Fighter I wasn’t the most popular of games. It was dull, linear and very difficult. Regardless, Capcom decided to go ahead with a sequel anyway and created one of the most important video games of all time. It’s rare that a game is so groundbreaking that it creates an entire genre by itself, but Street Fighter II arguably did just that. With its revolutionary combo mechanics, wide roster of characters and perfection of multi-player fighting, Street Fighter II subsequently led to the birth of several other significant fighting series. The thing is, several of the innovations that came about in Street Fighter II weren’t down to just genius, but luck, consequence and timing were also relevant factors.

Certain events, stories and details of Street Fighter’s production process have become common knowledge over the years, yet, there’s still a surprising amount that even the »

Robin Givens Calls Ray Rice Domestic Abuse Scandal a ‘Game Changer’ (Video)

12 September 2014 11:50 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Domestic violence has become a national hot topic in the wake of the shocking video of NFL player Ray Rice hitting his then-fiancee in an elevator, and now actress Robin Givens, who allegedly suffered spousal abuse from ex-husband Mike Tyson, is speaking out on the issue. Appearing on The Today Show on Friday, Givens calls the Rice tape a “game-changer” if simply for the fact that the video takes the credibility issue off the table. “It's hard to be believed,” Givens said of her own experience and in talking to other domestic abuse victims. “Being believed is an issue.” Also read: Chris Brown's Advice. »

Chris Brown to Ray Rice: 'It's All About How You Push Forward'

12 September 2014 10:19 AM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

The singer is still dealing with fallout from assaulting Rihanna in 2009.

More than five years after the fact, Chris Brown is still facing fallout from his 2009 assault of then-girlfriend Rihanna. So it stands to reason that he'd have words for Ray Rice in the wake of his NFL suspension.

Rice was officially cut from the Baltimore Ravens this week after a video leaked in which he could be seen assaulting his then-fiancee, now wife Janay Rice. A lot of people have had a lot of opinions on the matter (including Janay herself), and now Brown is chiming in.

"I think it's all about the choices you make," Brown told MTV News' Sway Calloway when asked what he had learned from his own experience. "With me, I deal with a lot of anger issues from my past – not knowing how to express myself verbally and at the same time not knowing how to cope with my emotions »

Robin Givens: Ray Rice Domestic Abuse Scandal Brought Back Memories From Mike Tyson Marriage

12 September 2014 2:48 AM, PDT | Us Weekly | See recent Us Weekly news »

Robin Givens addressed the Ray Rice scandal in a new interview released Friday, Sept. 12, after the former Baltimore Ravens running back was seen in surveillance footage knocking his then-fiancee (and now wife) Janay Rice unconscious. For the actress and activist, the issue of domestic abuse is deeply personal, as she herself experienced an abusive relationship in her past with ex-husband Mike Tyson. "What's important about this video is that people can't deny it," Givens, 49, told Entertainment Tonight. "They can't say, 'Well maybe it didn't happen. [...] »

WWE Network Review – The Monday Night War Episode 4: “A New D-Generation”

11 September 2014 12:08 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Luke Owen reviews the fourth episode of The Monday Night War on the WWE Network…

Read the previous episode review here.

As we’ve discussed in the previous episode reviews, we’ve come to expect a certain amount of revisionist history when it comes to The Monday Night War. If you want the real truth of how the war was won and lost, go and read Bryan Alverez’s The Death of WCW, which is having a 10th anniversary reprint next month. Once you’ve excepted the fact that The Monday Night War is not the most accurate portrayal of the war, you can come to terms with it as a show. But with that said, the fourth episode of The Monday Night War, which looks at the rise of D-Generation X, is the most hilarious, self-masturbatory example of “history is written by the victors”.

10 September 2014 10:21 PM, PDT | icelebz.com | See recent iCelebz news »

Boxer Mike Tyson went off on Toronto's CP24 reporter Nathan Downer during a live interview Wednesday afternoon after the reporter mentioned Tyson's rape conviction.

Toronto Mayor Rob Ford was hospitalized with stomach pains on Wednesday that have been determined to be caused by a tumor.

Ford’s brother Doug Ford has asked that the public give the family time to learn the full nature of the mayor’s health trouble. He also added, “Rob is in good spirits, and I just »

Mike Tyson, the boxing legend who achieved infamy for biting off an opponent’s ear, has endorsed the embattled Toronto Mayor Rob Ford, who is currently seeking reelection.

Ford believes he deserves a second chance. He believes that despite his personal failings, he also did the job he was elected to do well. A longtime admirer of Tyson’s prowess in the ring, Ford agreed to meet with Tyson, who was in town for his one-man show. In the end, Ford received an endorsement from the athlete, believing that his story fits into his own larger narrative that everyone makes mistakes.

“He’s a human being,” Tyson, who says Ford is the best mayor Toronto’s ever had, told reporters, according to the Toronto Star. “We have no idea what you do behind closed doors, what your habits are.”
