Hehe. Ya, i figured I knew what you meant. My only real objection is the insinuation about me thinking I’m some expert. And that’s only cause this thing is gonna wind up on the front page. But whatever, if people wanna call me out on that I can probably take most of 'em anyway :wgrin: It’s all good dude.
Guys, please calm down.
This is just one person’s opinion.
We still have folks like DGV, Afro legends, Snakes eyez, Kuroppi, BTC, ganelon who all love/play HDR, and they would have another side of the story to be told.
Cigarbob is in the ST camp. So just take it as it is. I hope no one is offended as he sometimes can be too straight forward with his words.
We just want to learn more about SF2’s history through different people’s perspective.
if you haven’t checked out the giga vs danpei match linked in the interview, you’re missing some very very solid ryu play
Actually i dont go by caesar people know me now by Mongolorobokop Aka Mongoloidrobo aka MangoRobokop just to let ya know
P.S. I still hate you
hate you too mongo
Good point papasi, good point.
Great interview. Needs more salt.
great interview. the “real” answers are the best part.
it wasn’t really asked much but you did mention that you felt claw is up there among the best. iyo, who is top 5 characters in st.
also, since you pretty much came from the start (ww days), it’s somewhat interesting to see how you prefer st over the other previous games. back then, st was played the least in arcades compared to ww, ce, hf (at least in my area… actually, st was played even less than the bootleg ce machines). many of the people i knew then, actually preferred hf and thought that was the high point as far as gameplay balance/tweaks (although, in my area, ww and ce was still the most heavily played).
zassa is giga-msx? he should definitely be interviewed. i’m curious if he was heavy into balrog before running into daigo. his rog is a beast along with bison.
Also, what are the stick options that you have in your cabs? Which ones do you prefer?
Can we have more Sirlin vs. CigarBob, please? I do so love it when name players fight in forums.
Great interview, nominated
Whatever happened to MSX? Last time I saw him was the fight between him and NKI about using Dictator at Stunfest. Seems to have gone ghost since then
CigarFrog is my hero ! Best read in a long time ! Can’t wait to see the rest of these. Many thank yous to all involved.
EXCELLENT interview. Nominated.
Hope to see a Giga interview, haven’t seen him online since a year or two ago.
Please sir can I have some more(stewie’s voice)
Good stuff, nominated. Can’t wait to read the other interviews.
Wow great interview, but this is what ST needs, rivalry, passion, a drive to beat another man…everyone’s vanilla ice cool…perhaps st needs a bit of hype?
Let’s have an Arcade ST 2- or 3-man team tourney at Evo2011. $100 entry per team. I’ll add an additional $500 to the pot if we get enough teams. Let’s make this a very professionally-ran side tourney. I would definitely come out of retirement and devote a good 5 months to getting my skills back if this was a real possibility.
My choice of team would be:
Me, Watson, DreamTR
Me, Watson, Afrolegends
Shirt’s i’m down man.
But I will not do teams. That shit is just too hard with so many pools being ran and everyone running off to play.
How about we do the SBR $50 a man 3/5 double elim singles? You throw in your 500 and ill throw in $500 as well?
What do you say?
Seriously, if DreamTR comes to Evo and plays in it, I’ll do a single tourney and donate.
What do you think about Round Robin?
I got something for these new folk. I see Guiles doing good at Season’s Beatings. Are you serious? I eat Guiles for breakfast. I still got some fire in me.
^When is that money match with Snake Eyez in Classic ST happening? XD
You can do it at SoCal Regionals! He’ll be there and I’ll record it.
