I have had my Madcatz Round 1 Tournament Edition stick since I started getting into the mainstream FGC around 2009. The most I have done to my stick was change the ball top and two buttons to my favorite color, ORANGE! I actually like the way my stick looks. It represents me as a person and a player quite well, but as a creative person I love standing out when I have the opportunity to do so.
So I was browsing around the SRK Arcade Stick Art thread and stumbled across this piece of art.
Very simple yet straight to the point. But sadly I will not use the “Supreme” logo. That doesn’t represent me as a person nor a player. Instead, I want to use the Kineda “Shoryuken” logo that he used on the SRK snapbacks. With a red bubble ball top, red/black Sanwa buttons, and a “octagon” gate from Focus Attack my stick will be complete.
The reason I really liked this simple design is because SRK is pretty much everything. It’s the central hub for everything involving the community. We have sites like iPlaywinner and Eventhubs, but even those guys started from the “Mother” site which is SRK. I don’t post there a lot, but I am always on that site lurking and learning new technology for whatever game I am interested in. Even a lot of important community discussion happens on SRK that you do not see anywhere else on the web. So hopefully, before the end of the year my stick will go through a huge transformation. Might do something big on my SE stick too, I don’t know exactly what yet.
Question: To my fellow FGC tumblr users, if you have a fightstick or a fight pad do you plan on modding it to suit your needs? If you have thought of it, but never done it… why haven’t you? If you have modded your stick, what did you do it?
I love going through the SRK “Arcade Stick Art” thread and seeing all the mocks and actual stick art! I think I found me one!
Evo 2012 Moments (by evo2kvids)
This year’s EVO2k… I can’t put it in words, but this video should help you just see how HYPE and just how much fun it was this year. I, real fucking talk right now, wish to do it all over again. I can not wait for 2k13
“Coin Op Eulogy” - RedRapper
Its difficult for me describe, the glory, of the world Arcadia
To put it’s majesty, or it’s beauty into words, is an endeavor wrought with adversity, obstruction in the age where men see skies without bounds or borders
If you knew them, these halls would be tragedies,
loneliness, bleeding through their screens
I miss the people that came here, I miss the moments the stayed printed on air and white
the relics and walls that screamed and surrounded us— that they call “old”.
But it’s not, I remember I ran with quarters in my hands, barely enough to keep an hour,
And I’d stay and I’d watch
I went outside, I breathed a little but I’d always come back with five dollars and and token up on the machine,
The people ahead of me were legends they were titans I couldn’t touch them. and theyd looked at me with this look like who the fuck are you?
And when I answered, it didn’t make sense. It never made sense. And I went home, and I wasn’t, a kid anymore. I it… It happened, and I looked out
and I saw these lights, and I saw this eagerness, this hunger, to be more than just a name on a stepping stone— all of a sudden, these people
were the people I loved, and the people I hated, and the home to me that was everything. Nothing else. We all came here, We all stayed here.
We all lived, and died by the fact that we stayed up on the machine. Nobody can understand it- it’s so hard to walk in and think about what was—
and what isn’t— and that’s the tragedy. Is you can’t see it. It’s impossible. Because it’s a relic, and empathy is a figment— but try if you can..
think. where were you, when everything became real— where you grew up. When did you grow up. WHEN WAS THE MOMENT FOR YOU, WHEN REALITY MADE SENSE.
AND TO EVERYBODY IT’S GONE, IT’S CHILDISH— IT WAS NEVER EVEN HERE. AND THEY’RE WRONG
Until, you look closer. And in the night, when the lights go down around the world our lights come up, and the People around us scream, and cry a fervor unbeknownst to any
collisseaum or stage. And you can feel it. Because I put my life into one quarter and three rounds. I marvel at marvels and fight fire with soul. I put everything in the 99 seconds
when a clock says fight and I say where. We don’t go to each others houses, that doesn’t make sense.I come here everyday,
because this is the home, that I remember. This is where life is born, and beauty is understood. And we have been here all along. and every time they say we aren’t loud enough,
we scream a decibal higher. And finally they glance, and hypnotized the stand in the middle of their distinction. ANd it makes sense, Because we are not rome. We did not fall.
Because every hall the bleeds of lonliness feels a spire nobody can ignite a hundred matches. And you ask me what’s important to me. it’s this. It’s Arcadia. Because we didn’t leave.
We grew dark pulled ourselves from shadows. We came from the darkness and defined our renaiissance under a perseverence of insanity. And if you listen, you can hear us burn
the north star, and them look to us as if they knew. If they KNEW who we were. And what we say—
Is that we’re still here.
