That girl is Poison

Our favorite Final Fight character, beyond a doubt, is Poison. It would take something really special to outshine Mike Haggar, but Poison does. Even though she was just one of the basic grunt enemies, her hypersexualized appearance and random flipping made her memorable among the countless Axls,...

OH! MY SHARK

When we saw this desktop wallpaper of Final Fight's most shirtless protagonist, Mike Haggar, piledriving a shark, we knew we had to post it. We also set it as our own wallpaper, then resized it and set it as our phone wallpaper. We've currently got an order pending at the printer's for our...

We're jealous of the Japanese Virtual Console selection already. It's even worse now that we've seen the newly-announced games for April.
