Jeez, I haven’t really been keeping up. This is ridiculous, guy who posts the mosts blogs and he’s falling behind. There are a few things that I guess I should cover this week. The big one would be:
Fight for the Future 2: Revived
This tournament went extremely well, all things considered. We set up pretty much like TST III, I’m very grateful to have a good team that runs things along side with me. Also, I’d like to thank Ariel from Machineinterface.com for giving us more prizes and making ours look like crap, just kidding. I’d like to thank everyone who came out, especially the newer players. I appreciate your support to the scene. I hope to see everyone in the next year where we’ll have at least 5-6 events planned. Especially with the new slew of games coming out.
I’d like to also say that the staff of the SSGA/Chipdamage.com did very well this tournament. Our final one of the year and we have Duong “nYo” Phu taking out Shane “Shinakuma” Fleury in ST for the number 1 spot, Matt “ckasady” Lehotsky getting 3rd in ST. Then in 3S we had Tyler “Kang” Sanderson and myself place in the top 4 (4th for Tyler, 2nd for me). Honorary member/staff Steffan Fields being able to do what he does best and placing top place in nearly every game. Awesome job you guys. For more results/videos and details, go the forums.
The other topic I’d like to discuss is the arrival of the long awaited:
Super Street Fighter 2 Turbo: HD Remix
Wow, it took a very long time for this game to come out. I mean FOREVER. I’m thankful to have heard the news that the PS3 would be getting it before the X360 because of Thanksgiving on Thursday. My fellow staff members, sans Jayse, were able to gather together on Tuesday and play long hours of local gameplay of the game.
The game looks fantastic, with a few graphical flaws in my opinion, but otherwise great. The actual game is great fun, since the rebalanced mode really does change things. I was actually winning more games than I usually do in that game. It’s a great game to play online as well, many people to challenge and stuff, especially on PSN (People should head to the SRK PS3 boards to find challengers).
I honestly say that Dhalsim/Boxer/Dictator/Cammy are top on my list. Others have their own opinions, which is great since the game is still very much playable. Akuma kinda sucks now, but I guess it had to be done. Other than that I have nothing but praise for the game. Get it as soon as possible!
Finally, I’d like to discuss:
Nothing else really. I’ve been addicted to Fallout 3 and I’m pretty sure I’m almost done the game. With FFTF2 done I’m pretty much done with 3S as well. STHD Remix will pretty much what I learn for SFIV. I’m sure we’ll have more things to discuss about for our future. We do have things planned I’ll tell you that much. We’re also gonna be trying to get a podcast or something going locally. Simply because we just don’t see them that much around here. Okay, well I think that’s all. I’m gonna go back to Fallout 3, GGPO gamers.

P.S. I don’t know if we’re gathering this weekend, we probably are, but just make sure with Duong or something.
