this is just an interest thread to see if people would like to meet with “only the best SF player to ever walk this earth” MR TOMO OHIRA. some of you youngsters might be too young to ever hear this name, but for those of you who have, the man is a legend of legends. you go to an arcade during the early days of SF and hear whispers about him, go to the laundry mats and wondering if you might be lucky enough to challenge him, visiting 7-11 stores all around town in hopes of seeing the ever so famous god of SF, then your day has finally come. you step up to a SF machine and put in your .25c thinking your hot and poof… you get owned. then you go home and tell stories of tomo, spreading word of OMG THIS GUY IS UNBEATABLE! your friends spread the word to their friends and before you know it… hes gone but now we have a thing called youtube and many of you guys have seen his capcom made video about SF techniques and secrets! (of course we know you watched this just to see the gijoe SF play action figures, but lets pretend it was to see tomo)
anyways, cutting to the chase, i have spoken to tomo recently and asked if he would like to come visit EVOLUTION 2K9. he then replied, why? i told him he has a ton of fans and people that have a ton of questions for him and also people who want to play him. i can guarantee this guy has not touched SF for many many many years, but can hand you a butt whoopin if you are not a top player. anyways, just wanted to start this thread and see whos interested in maybe greeting the man who got everyone started and was a main reason that SF has a tournament scene that is still alive and kicking.
(please dont be a jackass and post negative comments because we all know ip’s are easy to find and its not fun being brave behind a keyboard then having someone confront you and you making a mess in your pants)
thoughts? ideas? hopefully with enough positive feedback he will be nice enough to come out and take questions, etc. and finally have some closure in the world of street fighters!
p.s. tomo, if you are reading this, i know you still wanna play bud maybe this might get you back into it haha.
