Street Fighter Tourney at Arcade UFO, Austin



Arcade UFO is an arcade in Austin that features several Japanese-style sit down cabinets, among other traditional cabinet games. This Saturday they hosted a Street Fighter tournament that included Street Fighter II, Third Strike, and Street Fighter 4. Yes, they are rockin' the SF4 arcade.

I actually went to watch the 3rd Strike battles, cause you know, 3rd Strike is ten kinds of awesome. I am warming up to SF4, it's got some coolness brewin' and it has been consistently drawing crowds. But it does cost a dollar (day-um!!)

But the 3rd Strike battles in the tourney were sweet. There is just something about watching top players in a crowd setting. Especially so if you're a fan of all things Street Fighter and can recognize the challenges and nuances of the battles. I probably should have entered myself just for the fun and experience of it, but I had no prob waqtching the entrants go to town on each other. I wouldn't say it was at the intensity of stuff you might see at EVO, but there were some kick ass bouts. There were a couple dudes there from other cities as well, and I can admire that kind of dedication to play. And of course it got a couple friends and I psyched up to get a little SF action going on our own little arcade (see my last post... )

Who is Super Edco?
Since back from the retro days of yore, anytime a game would let you create a character and name it yourself, I've been using EDCO. It came about as an amalgam of my own name and the fact that an unusual number of games in those days only let you use four characters.

Videogames are a big part of my life. I've been playing and making videogames just about since there was such a thing to be done. My favorite games are RPGs, Fighters, and action adventures, and the rest of that list is a long one indeed. Currently I make games for Rumblecade.
