« Super NorCal Regionals Intro Videos »

When I talked to people online about the previous NorCal Regionals, more often then not they mention the NBA-style intro video to the stream. It was cheesy for sure, but it brought the hype like none other. So for Super NorCal Regionals I decided to step it up a bit and aimed for video intros to every game represented at the tournament. My friend (and NorCal boxer) ILLiterate helped out a lot with the brainstorming and script writing process, but to tell you the truth the collaboration went a lot like this-

ILLiterate: I have a dumb a idea!

Me: And I know how to make that idea even dumber!

When you're editing video all your lonesome until 4AM every night with little to no oversight, you tend to surrender yourself to your creative processes regardless of where it seems to take you. That's about as best as I can explain the utter insanity we at iPlayWinner subjected the audience to with these intros. Overall they went over pretty well and John Choi didn't punch me in the face for all the Sandstorm, so I'll put this one down as a win.

So here they are, all the intro videos as seen at Super NorCal Regionals, minus one: Capcom vs SNK 2, of which TheSwitcher will upload himself. 

 

 

Super NorCal Regionals

LordofUltima, creator of the awesome 3-minute fundamental videos did all the heavy lifting on this beauty as he provided us with an HD take on the original NBA-style intro. He deserves all the credit for this one.

 

Street Fighter III: 3rd Strike

If you're not quite sure what this is about, AJ has you covered. Not only is Rom the biggest proponent of 3rd Strike in America, he's also amazing at the game so this was more or less intended to be a tribute to the man. All the art here was done by my talented girlfriend, Miss Shelby. Without her this wouldn't have been possible.

 

Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix

Or as someone else called it, "Hella Fools on Blast: The Movie." What I wanted to do was to tap into the general feeling of apathy felt towards HDR by the community at large. That's another subject entirely, really, but it was a good excuse to do a bunch of VO with a cotton ball in my mouth. If you've never seen RedLetterMedia's Star Wars reviews, do so immediately.

 

Marvel vs Capcom 2

I admit it. I was just looking for an excuse to play that song as much as possible.

 

Tekken 6

Regrettably, I don't really know much about Tekken. I also don't really know many of the Tekken players so when it came to make an intro for them, I just focused on what I knew.. the funny animals.

 

Super Street Fighter IV Teams

Unfortunately due to unforeseen circumstances, I was left without a SSF4 Singles intro, so I put those efforts into intro for teams. This is about the point where I think I began to totally lose it and was throwing every crazy idea I had into the mix. That should explain why this is so random.

Overall I had a lot of fun creating these and it was great seeing all the reactions to them. We wanted to do something special for the tournament and I'm glad see it all worked out.

If i could touch these intros in their naughty areas, i would do so gently and with much love and respect. Barry White would be playing and afterward i would cradle them in my arms whispering sweet nothing till they fell into a blissful sleep.

They were kind of lame but lulz in my opinion. Good shit (literally). Like a fine smelling fart, your videos make me wonder how something so crude can actually be enjoyable. I don't see shit like this all the time. Only when I'm surfing around for youtube trash do I find anything even remotely close to the unique quality of your intro videos. Good way to channel your rotten energy into something slightly tangible for the rest of the internet population to flounder in. I would say more, but I feel like I'm beating on a dead horse. BAM bam Bam BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BA BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM bam Bam BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BA BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM bam Bam BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BA BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM bam Bam BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BA BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM bam Bam BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BA BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM bam Bam BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BA BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM bam Bam BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BA BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM bam Bam BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BA BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM bam Bam BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BA BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM bam Bam BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BA BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM

The HDR intro and MVC2 intro killed me. Awesome job with these!

June 1, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterfree

HDR & MVC2 were hilarious. 3S was cool too. Great job on these Jared and Lord of Ultima on the intro.
