G.M.C. Special Selection Videos
Nekohashi kindly posted some long SSF2T series on Niconico.
Guile vs. Ryu
Dictator vs. Ryu
Boxer vs. Ryu
Ryu vs. Ken

Player names aren't listed, but based on the title it's safe to assume these are the usual suspects from the Kansai crew. Great stuff.

Super Battle Opera 2008 ST Qualifiers
The following teams are in:
Gunze (Zangief) & Macky7 (Boxer)
Kusumondo (Honda) & Komoda (Blanka)
Ren (Dictator) & Hanashi (Fei-Long)


  1. Oh my god !! The second team ! Dhalsim powah !!! :D

  2. That sim team was probably hot but I would love to see that Hawk team featuring dictator.

  3. Team Hawkx4 in fact tied for third place with Akeome, Nogyo, Kikai, Shiro, Taira.

    Gian wrote that Noguchi was the MVP. He probably butchered fools in the finals.

    Komoda, btw, OCV'ed Nuki and Tokido at the SBO Q finals at gvision. They didn't post videos last year... hopefully they will this time around.

  5. I wonder how Daigo did at the event. Haven't see any recent videos of him playing ST, or anything really. I wonder if he's getting rusty.

  6. The Ken player is probably Aniken...if you look at the list of Japanese text in the box next to the video you see his name in there. When you click on the different texts it goes to a different point in the video.

  7. Those are the nico user comments. I mean that's just some anonymous person's guess.

    But yeah probably aniken.


    Something like that. Or maybe people using non-main characters.

  8. @nohoho: Are those taiman gachi battles recent?

    Also, any word on whether or not they're gonna post more qualifer vids? Started out solid with the 1st one on April 6th, but nothing since then. Perhaps they wanna compile for an eventual DVD release?

  9. I think the gachi vids are from the gmc archive.

    There should at least be some Game41 videos up soon. Nobody made the trek up there so winners San (Ryu) and Fujishima (Box) were local hokkaido players, though.

    Kasugai 50, A-cho, Avion, Game In Sakura, Shinjuku Vegas, Ooyama Newton... Hopefully some of those joints will post vids. Others (Club Sega, Plaza Capcom) may wind up on a Tougeki Spirits DVD.

  10. Hello,

    Does anyone know how to to the walk up super with dictator/boxer? They do a little step forward and then the super comes out.

    I've seen Taira and Yuu do it in the corner traps w/ dic, and now in this latest Tsuji vs ShootingD vid with boxer. It occurs at 22:37. Any help would be appreciated.

  11. There's no big trick. Just back towards back towards tiny beat button.

    This page has info for stretching special move inputs (for hsf2):

    The numbers in parentheses show how much time you have in between each input until the command buffer expires. So Boxer has a 10-frame window (give or take) after the final joystick input to press the button.
