Well, it’s been over three months, so it’s that time again. Let’s take a look at what players have been writing around the fighting game community lately.

The Game at Xenozip’s Notes

When you see it in videos it might not be entertaining, but so what — those players aren’t there to entertain you, they are there to entertain themselves. What that “cheap tactic” is doing is helping the community by forcing everyone to level up and fight harder. It’s all about setting a bar and having your opponent beat it, or finding some one else who raised the bar even higher so that you could try and beat it.

 
Five Questions with Jay “Viscant” Snyder at ComboVid

There’s always somebody better out there; there’s always another challenge. To me, Street Fighter is a game you can never truly master. It’s filled with a lot of mini-goals along the way with a semi-unattainable goal at the end.

    I can’t say enough good stuff about that Viscant interview. I’m still amazed at how much effort he put into answering all those questions.

    Although it just occurred to me how common these strategy interviews have become. Essentially all of those SRK articles are interviews in disguise. I’m not sure where it started but it’s kind of a cool trend in my opinion.

    Btw they also posted a Bonus Tips followup article that isn’t linked from the main post. Anyway i hope they do this again, but considering how much work it must have taken, i wouldn’t be surprised if it took a while.
