Week of April the 8th to the 14th, 2013.

Fighting Games Weekly is the weekly discussion thread for all things fighting games. News, events, streams, videos, players, drama, everything fighting game related.

New to FGC-GAF is the FGC-GAF Index which lists the fighting games GAFers plays as a neat reference with some rough statistics to boot. To add yourself to the index, quote this post and use the survey link below. Please remember to save/bookmark the "Edit your response" link so you can edit your responses if/when you buy a game already on the list or a new game that releases in the future.

Controversial Post: Fanatiq is a decent guy and his throwing the match was an acceptable display at his discontent towards having to fight his teammates.

It sounds like he's banging his girl in the background. Every few minutes you hear a moan.

Kinda like this Sebastian guy though.

Rolando is dumb.

lol @ haters twitter list.

I just found out how to use twitter lists and it blew my mind. I can follow more FGC/GAF people now!

EDIT: He's right about people needing to get over it though. There's no reason why Sp00ky should be raging as hard as he is unless there's more to it, which also doesn't look likely.

They're all in Fanatiq's channel, they're just too stupid to realize how to switch streams.
