Work is Love. Love is not work.

I had a crazy past 2 days. I left San Diego around 9 AM on Friday morning... Had to go from the office to downtown Los Angeles for a meeting with a potential new client. Meeting went really well. Translation = more good shit.

Stopped by a few import shops and game stores for lunch. Went to a popular spot off Venice. So many Street Fighter players there, as soon as I got in I was greeted with "HEY MARKMAN!" and then got some extra copies of Super SFIV for my pals.



Then met up with Princess Aura and started helping her out with her hair... Then went to the launch party for Super SFIV!



Played vs Daigo for the first match of the night on stream. Got wooped but it's all good.



Yes. Daigo "THE BEAST" Umehara is officially sponsored by Mad Catz and is the first piece of the puzzle of players that will represent Mad Catz in competitive gaming WORLDWIDE.

 
Nice move by Mad Catz getting a hold of Daigo. No one is his equal when it comes to both skill and name recognition in the world of competitive SF. I'm interested in seeing who else Mad Catz decides to sign and if they'll be American, Japanese, or from somewhere else.

Finally guys like Daigo and whoever else Mad Catz signs can truly be called "Pro Gamers". We always throw around that term, but that's technically not the case unless they're being payed just to play instead of having to win tourneys to earn money.

Awesome!!

Will Wong get a sponsorship? I bet he will be mad salty if he doesn't and Daigo has one :lol


But it a great move. Daigo really helps bring new people in the SF scene, everyone is just mesmerized by how he plays.

If you can point me to someone that can make SHIRTS FOR FREE, I'd gladly do this.
Nobody MAKES them for free but typically companies will pay for the few bucks per shirt and eat the cost because it helps them get the word out about their products. Doesn't mad catz usually give away shirts at E3 or other shows? Just talk them into it. :p

Justin is my dude. Can't say anything officially, but a TEAM usually consists of more than one person ;)
Worldwide, huh?...I don't know, I hope this kind of thing leads to some sort of gamestop tourney-like exhibition.

Of course, I'm just assuming it's only SF players.

lol, not going to happen. But if I go to events (and I do go to events), then yes, that is something I will do.

We don't have a booth at E3 :(
 
Been playing for the past two days, focused on sticking with Adon which im not shabby at, if any gaffers have any team stuff going on or just wanna add me then do so!!!

psn id: dread9
 
after a day, it feels to me like makoto has been sf4-ized (lesser mobility, more recovery), while ibuki, guy, and adon retained their speed, tricks off some quick special recovery, and the feel and properties of most of their normals. dee jay feels like in between (definitely slower and some weakened normals, but generally safe specials), and t. hawk and cody just seem more solid than ever. that sound right to you?

not yet sure why one would pick ibuki or cody's ultra 2s.

I apologize ahead of time to n3ss and eva01 :lol
Your team is my vote for best overall talent. You have two tourney level players there. Art is like an 18 year old hanging with 10 year olds in relation to his skill to theirs.
 





I want..........

Team name
Team Logo
Team theme-Link me to a youtube video or something.
Team quote...

ASAP to get it over with. The quicker I get these, the faster I can get the official thread done.

Team one has to play two and so forth.

Two and a half weeks of practice, game work, strategy, etc.

Let's be honest though, does overall talent even really matter? Doesn't it come down to the strongest player on each team, barring spectacularly poor matchups?
