Somtimes I feel like I should change this to Ibuki getting Ultra’d by someone
It’s been a big couple of weeks for me: my first round of Graduate-level finals are underway (though they’re totally non-traditional, they’re still scary), the much-anticipated beta for Starbound officially started a couple of days ago and, as some of you may know, I’m in the running to soon become writer for SRK! Needless to say, I’m thrilled beyond words that I could, in the very near future, have my foot in the door toward the job I’ve been dreaming about since I was a kid. I’ve always wanted to write about games–or help create them–and I may actually get that opportunity!
This week, the matches are good. They’re really good. They’re so good that, sometimes, Josh just completely stops talking–if you can believe it–in awe of what he’s seeing unfold on the screen. I managed to cram five matches into this video, as the talking between matches–and thus, the joke threads that tend to run for the duration of a video–just isn’t as common. I was able, then, to cut out most of the lobby screens and just get right into the fighting. This week I take on two Sagats, a C. Viper, an Oni and a Cody. C. Viper still terrifies me to no end and it doesn’t help that this one was in the top 100 for his character. I still think she feels out of place in the game; super jumps (which Ibuki also has) and the ability to special cancel air normals? She’s an out-of-place Marvel character. I honestly can’t believe she isn’t more popular.
I’m also happy to announce that yesterday marked the first birthday of KunaiVortex.com! Over this year, the site has undergone some serious changes: from posts popping up seemingly at random, to a twice-per-week post schedule (that I’ve managed, more or less, to keep going), the implementation of weekly video content and the addition of guests in said content. I’ve learned a lot maintaining this website and hope to keep it going for a long time. That said, in the event that I do make the cut and end up part of the SRK team, I will likely shift this site more toward the video content-only side of the spectrum, with text-based posts coming much less frequently. That doesn’t mean that my walls of text will stop appearing entirely, but it does mean that they’ll (likely) be less common, at least while I get used to producing content for two sites at once.
Thank you to everyone who has kept checking the site out over the last year. You guys are the reason I’ve kept the content coming!
