Sean and Laura Matsuda have a very loving brother-sister relationship. While Laura can be very physically aggressive with her little brother, it's obviously in good fun, even if Sean is an unwilling participant in her antics. Sean seems to be more responsible than his sister, but even he is considered a fun, goofy character by … Continue reading There’s Something About the Matsudas
It's uncertain what Akira Kazama's story is going to be about in Street Fighter V until she's actually released. It could be heavy, light-hearted, or be a careful balance of both serious and funny considering the characters who would most likely be involved. My guess is that it will take that last path, as Akira's … Continue reading The Purpose of Akira Kazama?
With the research I've done over the past few years, I've come to the conclusion that the plans of the primary antagonists, Bison, Gill, and G, were in fact the exact same plan, stolen from the organization before them, with some alterations to suit their purposes. The original plan, instigated by the Glade of Ninjas, … Continue reading Street Fighter’s G(roup) Project
The theory that launched my entire brand was "The Truth About G and Q?" It was covered by Event Hubs and Combo Infinito. I interviewed Daniel Lindholm, G's composer, on creating G's Theme, one of the best pieces of music on the Street Fighter V soundtrack. I've developed theory after theory on G and Q, … Continue reading The Question of G
In my last theory, I explained what my research led me to conclude about what Rose's story mode told me about what G's ultimate plan would be. She wanted to prevent him from ever getting the chance to unleash it by reaching into the past to save the future. However, I lamented that there wasn't … Continue reading Rose & G: From Zero

Rose and her story were just released, hinting at, if not outright revealing, one of the darkest stories gaming has ever seen. Street Fighter is not known for having a dark plot, even though it does dabble in troubling elements from time to … Continue reading Rose & G: Final Impact
In Neco Drop 2, the biggest surprises I ran into were the Q Mask blocks, which were added puzzle elements not seen in the first Neco Drop. It became pretty clear to me that, even though Neco Drop 2 was an April Fools Day project like its predecessor, the game was providing a glimpse into … Continue reading Lore Drop: Deciphering the Story of the Q Masks in Neco Drop 2
Sarai Kurosawa is Ibuki's best friend within the Glade of Ninjas. Sarai and Ibuki train together, go to school together, and are never too far out of each other's reach to contact each other. Sarai has become an interesting footnote in Street Fighter's lore as well - she shares her surname with the name of … Continue reading Ibuki vs Predator
Easter eggs in video games, once a rare occurrence, have become ubiquitous in modern gaming, so much so that some have even become paid DLC. Something like the Ryu and Chun-Li skins in Fortnite could be considered an Easter egg. A truer example would be the many Street Fighter and Darkstalkers references in Dead Rising. … Continue reading Darkstalkers Are Not Dead!
