I find this amazing feat borderline offensive for a whole variety of reasons. First of all, there's the obvious "you are way too talented at this character creation malarky, you insidious sod" angle. And then there's the way that my Japanese fighting game snob nature objects to the smooth and seamless way my favourite cast have been integrated into a bloody wrestling game (yes, I know SvR is a good series, and I know it's Japanese developed, but I'm talking video game snobbery here, so strict logic need not apply).
And then ultimately there's the way that this meticulously-created set of characters are such completely plausible recreations that they flip out my whole sense of reality and make me think that I'm looking at some long-lost wrestling-based Street Fighter spin-off that never really existed but maybe now it did. It's the stuff that schizophrenia is made of. Seriously, this stuff is so good it's surreal. Even the special moves are in.
Created by an insanely talented (and patient) chap by the name of Jimmy, this almost complete Super Street Fighter IV cast is almost entirely good enough to pass for official. We're looking at some serious creativity here, right down to the carefully chosen specials, alternate costumes and quality of video production, and the man responsible is to be applauded. Particularly given that - in case you didn't watch the video to the end - he's put the whole lot of them out for download on Xbox Live. Tell me you're not running to queue them up right now.
