The Spider-Verse Swings Into the Basement! February 2020 Gaming Decor Patch Notes

With this being the month of Valentine’s Day, it would have been a perfect opportunity to lean into the theme of romance somehow. Instead, I picked stuff on a whim and ended up with a bunch of Spider-Verse paraphernalia. Happy February!

Adventures into Spray Paint Art: Much to Learn

Attempting spray paint art for the first time unlocked a sense of unbridled freedom from within. Coming from a place where my expectations were non-existent and I was partaking in this activity strictly for fun, I had a great time just making what felt good in the moment. That early win was enough to inspire another go around, but it also created a new level of expectations that changed the vibe around this latest session.

Gaming Decor Patch Notes: August 2019 Edition

It’s about that time to switch it up!

Though it hasn’t been that long since I posted one of these, I’d actually had that configuration for a few weeks beforehand. This time, I’ll try and stay on top, posting these closer to when I rejigger the setup. At most, I’ll do these once a month for however long I’m interested in writing them. Here are a few new pieces I added!

Quarter up! #streetfighter #streetfighteralpha2

Arcade Week continues! Online play is great, but there’s nothing quite like playing Street Fighter in the arcade!


Traditional arcades may be long gone, but a few times a year, I’ll stumble upon a Street Fighter arcade machine at a convention or other public establishment. Whenever I see one, I always make it a point to play it for the novelty, but my hype levels go through the roof every time there’s a random stranger on the other end ready to battle. These days, it’s my goal to stomp out every one I play against at the arcade as a petty means of reparations for all the losses I took as a kid.

Street Fighter Week | Is Street Fighter Still the Premier Fighting Game Franchise?

Street Fighter Month concludes here on In Third Person! Though Street Fighter has always been perceived as the leader in fighting games, is it still deserving of that title? Thank you for joining me in this battle!


Street Fighter will always hold a special place in the fighting game community. Street Fighter II pioneered the genre. Street Fighter III was the game that kept the hardest-of-hardcore fans engaged during Capcom’s fighting game drought. Street Fighter IV ushered in the modern era of fighting games, laying out the blueprint for how to design a competitive fighting game for modern times.

But has it been deserving of that position in a post-Street Fighter V world? Not to specifically throw shade at that game, but in these last few years, the Street Fighter brand got weaker while others got stronger. On top of that, certain games may have stronger claims to the throne than you may think. Let’s discuss!

Street Fighter Week | An Ode to My Favourite Street Fighter Player Sakonoko

Street Fighter Week continues! Putting the spotlight on my favourite Street Fighter player this time: Sakonoko!


Sakonoko may not have the name recognition of such Street Fighter luminaries such Daigo, but he’s still a force to be reckoned with. Considered one of the five gods of Japanese fighting games, has no shortage of high placings in tournaments, including his reign as the first ever Capcom Cup champion.

What makes Sako so great? No offense to Bret “The Hitman” Hart, but Sako is the excellence of execution.
