Daigo Umehara Exhibition in Kuwait

Daigo "The Beast" Umehara is on a real worldwide tour in recent years, with trips to the United States, Europe, and now Canada being more frequent.  This November, Daigo will add Kuwait to his one-man show.  A special event centered around him has been created for the occasion. 

From Lucky Generation Gamers:

"Yep, its finally happening. Daigo Umehara is coming to Kuwait for an event: Umehara Daigo Exhibition. One of our close friends is holding an event, co-hosted with the good people of White Tower (Kuwait’s top arcade) that will feature a Daigo Challenge, Q&A session segments, casual SSFIV matches and more. The event will be held on Friday the 26th of November at Ahmad Tower, Arabian Gulf Street, right across the Platinum Gym from 4:00pm-12:00:am."

The exhibition portion is set up like an organized money match. Players purchase a ticket to fight a best 2 out of 3 against Daigo.

For more info on White Tower arcade and Kuwait's fighting game scene, check out this article IPW and Kuwait's players put together here.

Ono Tweets: SSF4 AE - Who's Getting Roasted Here?

Click for Larger ImageYoshinori Ono tweeted yet another picture for the upcoming arcade edition of Super Street Fighter 4. Oddly enough, it's a shot of Dhalsim roasting a certain character. Though it's hard to make out too much, if you look close enough -- wow, I thought I'd never say this -- it appears said character is wearing a thong. Are my eyes deceiving me or are we in for another surprise?

Here's the original tweet. Thanks to Poison for SSF4 on Twitter for the tip!

SSF IV AE will get Gold master just a bit more! All I can do is wait for approval.AEwill running in Mid of Dec! ;)

We Say Our GoodByes To KSK's Gamer's Vision Arcade In Japan

Updated on Monday, November 1, 2010 at 7:34PM by Registered CommenterRogerdodger

We all have known for awhile that the arcade scene has been dying, but none of us wanted to believe that. With companies not willing to create a arcade version, or if they do the overwhelming price to afford multiple cabinets to place in the arcades. We have all gone and put our share of quarters in the machines to play our favorite arcade games, but instead we choose to sit at home and play our favorite games on our home consoles.

Today we tip our hats to one of Japan's arcades, Gamer's Vision. With the recent activity of companies not willing to make a arcade version of current games, the arcade turnouts are getting smaller and smaller. KSK, the owner of Gamer's Vision, has decided to close the doors and call it a day.

Gamer's Vision arcade has been a hot spot for many fighting games such as Super Street Fighter II Turbo and Street Fighter III: 3rd Strike. Recently Gamer's Vision held their last and Final Super Street Fighter II Turbo tournament to go out with a bang. Famous players such as Daigo, Mago, Kansai ST, Kanto ST were all in attendance for this 2vs2 team tournament.

IPW Topic of the Week: Taunting

Whether you are playing online or in a tournament, almost everybody who plays fighting games against other players on a semi-regular basis has run into taunting.  Some players out there do it simply to grief other players.  Some use it as a legitimate component of their gameplay strategy.

Everybody has their own moral code that applies to this topic. So, what is your position? How do you feel when you get taunted? Do you taunt others? Why and under what circumstances?  Do you do it in all games or specific ones?

As a fun bonus, what fighting game's taunting (by design or by players being creative) affects you personally the most?

Thanks to Spiron for an excellent topic! Have an idea for a future topic? Hit the thread in the IPW Forum and let us know! If you missed last week's topic, "Should the Conduct of Stream Commentators and Tourney Players be More Professional?", check it out here!

SSF4 Online Replay: Bonchan vs Daigo

I feel like jerk for putting Daigo on blast again, but this another must see video from ShinAkuma's YouTube Channel. This is a match of Bonchan vs Daigo, and if you're not familiar with Bonchan, he was one of the -- if not THE -- best Sagat players in Vanilla SF4. He inspired me as a Sagat player while watching him first hand out in Japan due to this unorthodox, wiley rushdown style. The ending of this match is really ridiculous though so be sure to check it out below!

GodsGarden Online 2: Daigo vs Mago

This is part three, and of course with it being GodsGarden, these are long sets, so you can view the rest on SpotATrain's YouTube Channel. This video is great though because of a clutch Ultra by Mago at about 5 minutes into the video.
