- These GameSetLinks are a little tardy, dear readers, but there's all kinds of randomness here, so it'd be a shame to waste it on the 'Unpublished' bin, isn't it? Here we go:

- Street Fighter Tactics Unmasked: At David Sirlin's blog, he's been analyzing his Super Street Fighter II performance at Evo West, and it's fun to read just from a super-duper hardcore competition point of view: "DSP completely destroyed me first round. I think this confirmed everyone's fears that I had no idea what I was doing and that Honda was a terrible choice. Furthermore, I got hit by whiffed roll into bite and hop into bite. I think this must have looked like I was too old and had too bad of reaction time to stop it. Actually, this is not at all true. I knew he would jab roll into bite. I knew he would hop into bite." It continues for some time!

- Games Fun, Games Good?: On the Museum 2.0 blog, Nina Simon has been discussing the recent Ian Bogost articles on Gamasutra from a curatorial perspective, and it's interesting stuff: "The problem is that it's very hard to separate the expectations we have--about what games or comics are--from the blank slate potential of the media. This is true both for we the designers, who think we have to make games fun, and we the visitors, who expect the gaming experience to be fun. But what about games that are "interesting?" Or "enlightening?" Or "useful?" Those words aren't part of our gaming vocabulary, or if they are, as in the case of educational games, those games are often considered traitors to the "real" nature of games."

- Game Style Guide Evolved: At the IGJA's home base, David Thomas has been discussing the Video Game Style Guide (or Videogame Style Guide, if you prefer!) I think I've mellowed a bit since my previous style guide comments, so you know, horses for courses - what's to stop people from getting interested in this if they really believe in it? And hey, there's a Style Guide Wiki now, for those who want to come and contribute. Go check it out!

- Catwoman, Cha Cha Cha!: Over at Game Of The Blog, Joel has been exploring Electronic Arts' terrible Catwoman, and he comments: "It was frustrating as hell, but it has a certain charm. What other game lets you collect bling?" More tragically: "After about a minute of standing still, the Halle Berry simulacrum begins to bump, grind, wink, ask if you "Like what you see?" and beckons you to "Come closer baby", all the while fondling her digital bits to a low key techno beat." Yes, Joel made a video. Oh dear.

- Rein Vs. Dyack - The Thriller!: I originally didn't link this because I thought everyone saw it via the ubiquitous NeoGAF, but now I've been chatting to a few people, I realize not everyone did - it's 'Mike Works' Thriller' [YouTube link], which deals with the whole Silicon Knights vs. Epic lawsuit in somewhat, uhh, 'epic' form - by co-opting Michael Jackson's 'Thriller' video and adding some serious satire. Watch for the CliffyB cameo at the end!
