Watch Fish Play Street Fighter

Some goldfish are currently going head-to-head in Super Street Fighter II Turbo, and it's being broadcast live for all to see.


Watching fish play Pokemon is so two weeks ago. Thanks to the bastion of brilliance that is the Internet, we can now watch a couple goldfish go head-to-head in Super Street Fighter II Turbo.

Here's what it works. The tank is (virtually) segmented into nine parts on a 3x3 grid. Where the fish swim will determine button presses. For the purpose of this stream, a goldfish named "Aquarius" is Player 1 and a little swimmer named "Robert the Bruce" is Player 2.

Don't worry, the fish do not actually fight each other in real life. And the creator of the video assures us, "I am dedicated to taking the absolute best care of my fish that I can."

Maybe fish will start writing better articles for Gamespot instead of stupid stories about fish, and vague game references with current events and dim-witted celebrities.

GS needs a new writing staff. Actual gamers and not wanna-be aspiring novelists who think they're relevant because they wear thick rimmed retro glasses and obscure tee shirts.

<< LINK REMOVED >> So what's an actual gamer? Pretty sure these guys are.

Also. removing these articles from the site won't make more high quality articles appear. this is not a newspaper where there is limited space. They can publish as many as they want.

Next, "Fish becomes CEO of EA"

I just chose EA because so many people around here hate it :).

<< LINK REMOVED >> Ubisoft is slowly turning into the new EA it seems as well. They have done and said some truly bullshit things recently.

I expected Phil Fish with insane amounts of xenophobia, I was disappointed but then I realized that this was time better spent.

How bad is it that these fish fight better than I did when I first picked up street fighter when I was six?
