A brand new year is coming, and with it there's many expectations that we all want to somewhat acomplish, or at least put on motion.

2011 was the year when I truly discovered myself as a gamer. I played the hot games near their releases, I followed the news about the ones that are coming and the companies that make those games. I got involved with other gamers, other communities of gamers. I got myself an opinion about all of this that I enjoy so much.

I want to express those opinions. I want to develop them, to exercise my writing on the topics that I expend so much time thinking about. The way games are made, the way we see and enjoy those games. The way we feel like we're part of a group, a community.

In 2011 I decided that I wanted to go the core of the community of one the genres I love most. Fighting Games.

I went all the way from Brazil to Las Vegas and entered the Evolution Championship Series. I met all the players I watched at home through streams. I watched Daigo be perfected live, on the front row and screamed PoongKO with everyone else on that room. I raised my hand and made a shoryuken with thousands of people. I was there and I it was amazing.


I'm the guy with the evo shirt behind Floe btw.

I want to feel like that again in 2012. Not necessarily going to EVO again (although that would be nice too), but, I want to contribute, to make part of this, of this passion, of this community.

I am Vigilante 8, and in 2012 I want to talk about games and be more than just a gamer. That's my New Year Resolution.
