Super Turbo Sundries

SNF2X Poll

I put a quick poll on left side of the blog. In addition to picking one of the choices I'd ask that you:

1) tell your sparring partners about it. The idea is to survey regular readers but friends of regular readers would be excellent, too.

2) post ideas for future polls in the comments to this post. This concept was lifted from the SF2 Fan Site (see below) but those questions don't really fit here.

Thank you!

Star Cup Live Stream

Gama no Abura (NSB chief) is going to help get a stream up for Star Cup weekend.

Pre-Star Cup Event
October 10th at 7:30pm (Japan)

Duo 4on4 tournament (each team consists of four characters divided up between two players) followed by some exhibition matches.

The SuperStar Cup 2009
October 11th at 1pm (Japan)

Solo 3on3 as usual.

It isn't clear what exactly is going to be streamed and where, but the exhibition matches, at least, will be on Nico Live. You'll need a Nico Video account for that. I'll post URLs when I have them.

SSF2X @ Kouhatsu
Gunze has been doing really well at Ko-hatsu events this year.

Local match from a few weeks ago. Never saw a zero damage bite before. Thank you to Riz0ne for the upload.


  1. He told you he could do it. :)

  2. LOL-worthy. Ya, Chris TOLD you!

  3. I'll be damned if that isn't the most Chinese sounding Japanese commentator in those Gunze videos.
    Anyone know who it is?

  4. He did tell me heh. Very clutch mashing.

    002 - Don't know who it is. Trying to figure it out right now.. they have some funny white board doodles on the staff blog.

  5. I sent you a PM regarding the upcoming Star Cup on Nohoho.

    At the time I sent it I didn't realise that you'd already posted about it -_-

    My apologies.

  6. Hit me on email instead nohoho at gmail.
