Taking things to the next level

"You must defeat Sheng Long to stand a chance."

That is the first quote I remember from Street Fighter II. I saw a few seconds before the player who just beat me claimed to not know how to Hadouken after using that move to destroy me. That pissed me off and sent me to a bookstore in search of answers. (No, there was not much of an internet back then.) This was the beginning of an ongoing journey.

A few days ago, I posted that I was attending EVO this year. It's a great time to attend. It will be the EVO debut of Street Fighter IV and HD Remix. It's a very exciting time to be a fan of the fighting game genre. Yesterday, I made a new decision regarding this trip. I'm not just going to EVO, I'm going to compete at EVO. I was not sure if I wanted to compete at first. I'm a good SF player, not a great one. When I started looking into registering for the event as a spectator, I noticed that EVO is open to the public. Watching is free and playing is $30 + $10 per tournament. FOr the grand total of $40, the price of a SquareEnix DS game, I can say that I was one of the first SFIV players at EVO. That seems like a pretty big deal to me and a once in a lifetime sort of experience. So, I decided to do it. Once that decision was made, I wanted a goal to work towards: I want to play my best. That's it. I don't care if I win five matches or lose my first, so long as I know I put in my best effort.

That's where you come in. I've already drafted Haxan and am looking for other players to play online. I want your best, just like you did when during Haxan's contest. Help me become a better player. I will be maining Fei Long, as usual, and will take on all challengers. My PSN ID is nilcam. If possible, I'd like to do this with headsets so that you can offer criticism of my play style and to discuss all things SFIV.

Let's do this.

About nilcamone of us since 9:53 AM on 01.31.2007

Old-school gamer. I started gaming with the Atari 2600. I became an addict with the arcade release of Street Fighter II at my college. The SNES release pushed me into buying that system and a lame arcade stick. I haven't looked back since then. I still consider the 16-bit to be the Golden Age of gaming. The current generation is keeping me pretty happy, especially with the fighting game renaissance that's happening lately. And, yes, I'm old.
