XBOX Games with Gold is finally Heating Up! Games Notes 14 MAY 2014

xbox 360 games with gold logoFinally. I like Microsoft’s Games with Gold initiative which rewards XBOX Live members with two free games every month. It certainly introduced me to a number of titles I might not otherwise have tried, and it definitely laid the groundwork for further digital game purchases from me.

However, it has more often than not felt like a very lacklustre, half-hearted baby brother to the way more exciting rival Sony’s PlayStation Plus programme, primarily because the free games given away by Microsoft are either ridiculously outdated, or deemed to be cop-outs thanks to their lighter Arcade status.

But all of a sudden Microsoft seems to really be taking it up a notch again. April 2014 Games with Gold saw the usual combo of an Arcade and AAA title release, the first being Deadlight (2012), followed by Hitman: Absolution (2012). May 2014 Games with Gold followed that good offering up with Dust: An Elysian Tail (2012), and the super silly but fun Saints Row: The Third (2011).

And now for June 2014 Games with Gold (in which XBOX One now also joins the party), Microsoft is giving away on the XBOX 360 platform three excellent titles: Dark Souls (2011), Charlie Murder (2013) [Arcade], and lastly, Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition (2011).

At this rate I might even become interested in gaming again!

Street Fighter IV Cosplay: Juri Han (Taori) Cosplay 18 MAR 2014

Another cosplay entry for these pages, this time featuring a trip to the ultimate fighting franchise for our insert, none other than the king among arcade fighting games – Street Fighter! (Well Street Fighter IV to be exact). The character being profiled? Korean newcomer, Juri Han, cosplayed here by Taori!

Street Fighter IV Cosplay Juri Han by cosplayer Taori 1

The first ever Korean playable fighter, Juri is a taekwondo practitioner of note, and the series’ first ever proper female villain. An underling of the evil Seth and a member of S.I.N., Juri is a particularly nasty individual, eagerly playing off her sultry and provocative looks before decimating an opponent with her powerful kicks and ranged energy abilities, gifted by the pink Feng Shui Engine crystal embedded in her left eye.

A woman of powerful character and with an enjoyment in what she does, designer Yoshinori Ono’s “Spider” Juri is most definitely not a woman to be underestimated or crossed!

Cosplayer Taori pulls off a great mischievous and provocative Juri Han, with a lot of detail going into her spider/taekwondo costume, all pulled together of course by her rather outlandish hair style and slightly deranged look!
