M.Bison Makes His Return in SFV

The ever evil dictator of Shadaloo, M.Bison, is making his return in SFV. M.Bison has gotten a little older and whole lot more vicious. With an array of new attacks, it's clear that M.Bison's cruelty knows no bounds!

Continue on to see what new tools M.Bison has in store for the World Warriors!

In the latest M.Bison reveal trailer, you can see some of his new attacks in action. If there's one thing that's clear, it's that M.Bison has finally gained extreme control over his Psycho Power.

Now that you're done watching and rewatching that trailer (as I know I did), take a look at these screens which show Bison doing what he does best, destroying those who get in his way!

Bison gives Nash a taste of Psycho Power!

Bison's power exudes through his attacks!

Bison blows away all who challenge him!

Psycho Powered flames surround Bison!

The mighty Bison grins in victory!

With Ryu, Chun-Li and Nash all in present, the mighty Bison will definitely have his psycho charged hands full with competition. Only four characters in and this is shaping up to be the most epic Street Fighter yet!

Who do you think will be the next World Warrior to Rise Up? Let me know in the comments.

Support the troops this weekend by gaming with the fourth annual 8-Bit Salute

For several years now, Operation Supply Drop has been on a noble mission: to send video games and gaming hardware to troops stationed overseas. As I’m sure many of our own readers know, gaming can offer a valuable outlet for coping with depression and anxiety. It can also help alleviate the idle tension that often accompanies serving overseas. 

Through OSD’s annual “8-Bit Salute” fundraiser , they and YOU have helped provide support to over 7,000 US and NATO troops. This year they aim to raise more money than ever for their cause, with a “high score” goal of $1,337,000 (see what they did there?).

For the unfamiliar, the 8-Bit Salute invites fellow gamers not only to donate, but also to recruit   donations from others by marathoning their favorite games during the event weekend. To participate is simple: 

-Register at the 8-Bit Salute page . You can participate as an individual, or create or join a “team.” Or, if you don’t or can’t stream a game yourself, you can simply donate to the cause.

-If you will be participating in the marathon, ask your friends and family to sponsor you. They can make a monthly pledge or a one-time gift. OSD encourages each participant to have a goal of $200 in donations, which amounts to $20 from 10 people. PLUS if you register as ELITE for fifteen bucks, you get a snazzy commemorative T-shirt once you raise $200 on your personal page!

-The marathon commences May 16th 12:00CST through May 17th 12:00CST. Have a seat (or stand) and play games on May 16th and/or 17th and see how long you can hold out and how much you can raise for the troops!

WHO IT BENEFITS:  8-Bit Salute benefits active duty members of the military and veterans who have served the US and NATO allies. Learn more about the successful OSD programs here and read the most up-to-date news here.

Thanks for supporting, and have a game-filled weekend!
