Friends, thank you for joining us once again for a new episode of the Diary of An Arcade Employee podcast – the subject for this show focuses on both Street Fighter II: The World Warrior as well as Street Fighter II: Championship Edition. This episode is a tad longer than the standard Diary podcast because quite frankly, there is a ton to touch upon when discussing Capcom’s Street Fighter II. As always I do my level best to attempt to shine the a spotlight on those responsible for creating such a classic arcade fighting game – such as Yoshiki Okamoto (Gyruss, Time Pilot). In addition on this Street Fighter II episode I am joined by none other than Andy Pickle, my co-worker at the Arkadia Retrocade and one of my best friends.
For this Street Fighter II episode – I alter the discussion of the standard show to focus more on the creation of the game instead of giving you a rundown on how it is played, etc. Besides sharing my personal memories with the game – I also take just a moment and talk about the time I oversaw the Street Fighter II home game competition at the video store I worked at back in the day.
By the way, our ending theme which is entitled “River Raid”, was graciously provided by the talented Tony Longworth. If you like what you hear you can listen to more of his work over on his SoundCloud page.
So without further ado, start practicing on your Hadouken and Hundred Hand Slap as we tackled Street Fighter II!
