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...

Are there no prisons? Are there no workhouses?" But look at what that cycle of neglect has done to the po...

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.

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...

In fact, Capcom's John Diamonon told PlayStation.Blog readers that "trophies were never promised for SFHD and aren't going to be implemented."Wel...
