Its been a while since the Gamestop and Capcom sponsored National Tournament was held last week, but the internet at my house is broken (along with my 360, but that’s another blog all together).  Luckily, I have a quick 45 minutes to blog during my office hours!

I was super stoked to go to this tournament, partly cause I love Capcom, and also because I love Street Fighter.  It was held at the Fort Mason Festival Pavilion in SF, which is a little off the beaten path.  I arrived a bit late, so when I got there, tons of people were already inside watching the Quarter-Finals take place.  It was held in the largest venue that I’ve seen for a gaming event so far, with lots of room for gaming kiosks and places to get free swag such as shirts and hats. Hit the jump to read more!

Posted in Capcom, street fighter on April 5, 2009 by drtactix

As reported earlier here on GAredux and all around the internets, Gamestop and Capcom hosted a nation-wide tournament for Street Fighter IV.  Although I didn’t get a chance to compete like I wanted to (stupid grad school), many people did…..and on March 16th (I know…old news…) the finalists who won a trip to compete in nationals was announced.

Luckily for me, the SFIV National Tournament Finals will be held in San Francisco on April 18th, so you can count on me checking out the event to report the event from a hands on persepective.  As it states on the Capcom Unity blog, the event is open to the public and will be a Street Fighter extravaganza and will have some special surprises announced soon.  Anyway hit the jump for a list of the finalists, and stay tuned to GAredux for coverage of this event!

HA-DOU-KEN!

New Street Fighter Website Launched

Posted in art, Capcom, street fighter on January 30, 2009 by drtactix

[Edit: Turns out the site is temporarily down until further notice….Sad Panda…-Jesse]

In honor of the upcoming SF4 (which I’m anxiously awaiting!) and celebrating 20 years of SF love, members of Team SFD have launched a new site that has the largest collection of Street Fighter images on the internet! The announcement is below:

————–
Team SFD is pleased to announce that their latest website “Street Fighter HD.com” has just launched, complete with OVER ONE THOUSAND Street Fighter images, archiving over 20 years of history and culture! Fans will find High Resolution and Extremely Rare Street Fighter art by Akiman, Bengus, Shinkiro, Ikeno, Edayan, Kinu, Shoei, Udon Crew and more, each at a resolution up to an unprecedented 1500 Pixels in height/width.

“It took us a very long time to create this website; almost as long as it took for us to build Street Fighter Devotion. In the end, we are very pleased with the results. Our continued love for Street Fighter, Capcom and its Fans has led us to build extensive community websites such as these, and we will continue to grow parallel with the series. We hope you enjoy the website.” – SFD

While Street Fighter Devotion focuses on Merchandise History, Street Fighter HD focuses on Art History. Both websites are independent from each other, and will continue to support the Street Fighter community in their unique ways.

So if you want some new backgrounds, buddy icons, or just want to check out the wonderful art history of one of Capcom’s most beloved series, you should check this site out! (Cammy pics, here I come!)
