You know how old-timers always talk about how it was better in their day? Well, if their day was the early nineties, then for once they're right. This clip from 1993's City Hunter starring Jackie Chan (we guess he's a cop prowling the streets for law-breaking skyscrapers?) takes us back to a magica...

For the opening of last weekend's GameCity Squared event, design group Alaskan Military School took a bunch of popular games and boiled them down to the bare essence, creating shockingly recognizable 15-pixel animations representing Parappa the Rapper, Street Fighter II, Noby Noby Boy, and more. Th...

You see them every day on the streets, or on Kotaku, but we've learned to turn a blind eye to them. "Oh sure," you think, "Zangief statuettes are sad, but surely someone else will take them in. Are there no prisons? Are there no workhouses?" But look at what that cycle of neglect has done to the p...

This video dropped earlier this month, so we offer our humblest apologies if you've already seen it -- actually, scratch that. You could do with seeing it again. Watching a single man go all Ong-Bak on an unsuspecting sedan is damn near the most inspirational thing we've ever seen. Oh, and it clos...

In what will assuredly be the longest headline for any Xbox Live Deal of the Week post we'll ever run, Microsoft's offering a $5 reduction in price (from 1200 to 800) on Capcom's Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix this week. That's right, folks -- you're reading this correctly. We're on the s...

Capcom's marketing machine sure did a number on us. If you need proof, just look at how terrible Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix looks in this video (after the jump)! Wasn't it supposed to be über sexy? Oh, wait. We've just been informed that this isn't HD Remix, but a deconstruction o...

An e-mail from Capcom's Tim Ng starts with this: "Do you remember Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix? You know that game we announced in April 2007." Yes, Tim. We do remember that game. We also remember that it hasn't been released yet. "Well, it's actually on its way to XBLA and PSN very soon...

After last week's fairly abominable update, Space Harrier is back to save us all. The last time we played Sega's classic rail shooter was in the arcades of Shenmue, and we seem to recall it feeling a bit ancient, but still being a bit of a hoot. Also appearing is Street Fighter II: Special Champions...
