The voting has ended, the ballots have been counted, and we can now announce our two fighting games for Usagi's School of Hard Knocks! The first is Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix, a timeless classic that almost all of our members own. With this game, Usagi Sensei will go over some basic fundamentals and help everyone develop some skills. Later on, Usagi's School of Hard Knocks will move over to Marvel vs. Capcom Origins for some more classes focused on advanced techniques. Classes haven't been scheduled yet but will be soon! Keep an eye out, download Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix, and check out these helpful videos while you wait.

Usagi's School of Hard Knocks!

Our wonderful Shateigashira, Miyamoto Usagi, has come to the conclusion that it is time that we guppies break away from the chains of suckyness and rise to our place as champions of the online fighting community! Thus, Evil Guppy [GPY] is proud to open the doors to Usagi's School of Hard Knocks! At this prestigious school, Sensei Usagi will help teach us the various facets of fighting games to help better our abilities and the quality of our fighting game GPY events. Usagi's classes will function like our traditional GPY events but instead of battles and buttons, it will be a place to learn, practice, and hone our fighting skills! But before we can officially attend Usagi's School of Hard Knocks, we first need to select a fighting game to focus on. The officers have selected six fighting titles to focus on and we hope to reduce them down to one or two with your help.

Darkstalkers Resurrection - For $14.99 you can get Darkstalkers Resurrection and Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo HD Remix (Not to be confused with Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix) via the PlayStation Store.

Fighting Vipers - Only $4.99 on the PSN Store.

JoJo's Bizarre Adventure (HD Ver.) - $19.99 on the PSN Store.

Marvel vs. Capcom Origins - for $14.99, you can get digital copies for both Marvel Super Heroes and Marvel vs. Capcom.

Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix - $9.99 on the PSN Store.

Virtua Fighter 5 Final Showdown - It was previously free for PlayStation Plus members and can be purchased digitally for $14.99 or with all the DLC for $29.99.

There are two surveys below. The first asks "What fighting games do you own", you can select as many as apply. The second survey asks "which fighting games do you want to play", here you can select your top choices. Feel free to select multiple choices but please try to keep it to your top contenders. After the votes have been tallied we will pick the top game (or maybe two depending on feedback) and then hold our first class. Tardiness is unacceptable and liability waivers must be signed by a parent or guardian! And don't forget your homework! Check out the YouTube series First Attack for some great tips. Now go vote before sensei Usagi smacks you with a ruler!

Summer is upon us Guppies and what better way to spend those blistering hot days than inside playing games! The officers have come together and scoured our Games List to come up with some great sun blocking games that we can play in the upcoming months. We realize that you aren't made of money but we hope that by choosing older games or digitally released games, that you may be able to work these titles into your budget. We also selected these games in hopes to continually play them all throughout the year unlike some previous titles that were only used once for events. So here's a preview of what we hope to be playing soon!

Burnout Paradise [GPY event, June 14th at 7pm PDT/10pm EDT] - $23.80 for a new, physical copy or $14.99 for a digital copy. We also ask that members make sure they have the Big Surf Island DLC which you can buy separately for $6.99 or in a bundle for $19.99.

Payday: The Heist [GPY event, June 28th at 7pm PDT/10pm EDT] - Was free for PS Plus members or can be purchased for $19.99 digitally.

Counter-Strike: Global Offensive - Can be purchased digitally for $14.99

Red Dead Redemption - The Game of the Year Edition (which includes all DLC) can be found new, in a physical version for $19.99.
