New screenshots of Street Fighter IV’s Rufus unveiled: brings back fond memories of Earthquake’s butthole blossom.

According to SNK in 1993, a true American was one of two things: a blonde douchebag with a dog, or an enormous tatted-out, trailer-park, bald-as-balls neighborhood Big and Tall shopper (pictured below). And one whose best move is ass-blasting the shit out of his opponents with a formidable colon buffet. I’m relieved to witness that these Japanese sentiments have been kept alive by Capcom roughly 15 years later.

Fighting games’ plus size characters have always provided a nice break from the serious ninjas and in-shape ass kickers that you generally have at your disposal. I’ve never really been able to get into playing them consistently simply because when it comes down to it, a lack of speed just gets your offensively large ass kicked. Still, regardless of whether he’s a “good character” or not, Rufus looks pretty damn absurd to wield. I’ll be looking forward to this title even more now.
