Got an Article/Interview about the Fighting Game Community? Post it Here!
So, after reading this thread by HAV
I, personally, find the fact that people didn’t know who Fuudo was, prior to yesterday, a little annoying. Even the announcers talked about Fuudo like he just started playing SF4.
Dude was a Grandmaster Ryu in Vanilla, and he’s been the #2 Fei in Japanese arcades for the past 8 months. Why don’t people know that?
I don’t know if this is the right place for this, but what the hell can we do to make SRK focus more on real play?
It seems like there’s a new post on the front page about “Cool an…
I noticed a couple of things:
There are players that want to contribute, but won’t because their work will get drowned out by daily updates for posts.
On the flip side, there are people who are higher up in the SRK ranks that seek out said content, but get perhaps a fraction of what they ask for (if that).
So, the purpose of this thread is to serve as sort of an outlet for 1) and 2).
Simply copy and post your article here. If you wrote it in a word processor you can attach it here as well. If you have questions about posting pics or spicing it up, you can find how do to that here
Don’t be intimidated by the code. They give an example for each, so you just literally copy the code and replace it with what you want to add.
If you like the articles that you see on here, then click on the like option. You can comment and talk about said article as you will. However DO NOT QUOTE THE ENTIRE ARTICLE in you reply because the articles take up enough space on the page as it is. As more and more articles are posted, I will organize and put links in this post so they do not get drowned out, which addresses 1). If Keits or the powers that be see enough likes, they might just be convinced to put it on the front page, which addreses 2). However, even if this does not occur, at least there’s a place it can be stored.

My Attempt at Domination 101: Thoughts on “Randomness,” Mashing, and High Level Play. Poe22222
I wasn’t sure whether to post this on the AE board or the Fighting Game Discussion board as it’s applicable to fighting games in general but is based around and discusses only my experiences with SF4.
This essay is light-heartedly dedicated to Seth Killian, fellow philosophy major, whose amazing Domination 101 essays, which can be found on their own forum on SRK (
http://shoryuken.com/forum/index.php?forums/domination-101.98/) and are absolute must-reads, gave me the idea to do this and also jus…

Top Player Interview with CigarBoB. VirtuaFighterFour.
<VF4> What was your first encounter with any version of SFII?
<CigarBoB> First time i saw SF2, I was at a bowling alley in Yuma, AZ, at a tournament. It was right after it came out so I would say I was about 14-15.
<VF4> World Warrior?
<CigarBoB> That would be around 91, yeah WW. I was too caught up on my bowling to really spend much time on it. I would have had to give up practice time from that to play.
<VF4> Did you imagine at a…
