Shepton’s thoughts on Street Fighter 6

By Shepton on October 24, 2023 in Blogé

Alright alright fine I’m doing a thing. Fighting games have been my dopamine delivery mechanism of choice ever since SF2 HDR came out back in the Xbox 360 times and Renegade introduced me to it. I guess prior to that, Smash was kind of a gateway drug. But Smash isn’t a fighting game, it’s a […]

What it is in the main

By Shepton on October 2, 2022 in Sheptro

‘sup. When rebuilding the site I couldn’t help but notice just how fucking much I ramble on about bullshit and go off on tangents when I write anything. It was kind of a running joke. But I also think it can get pretty annoying when trying to read. So I’ma try an’ cut to the […]

From the charred and useless ashes of our past, the body is restored once more. Like the phoenix of legend we rise again.
