I wouldn't normally pimp out links to my own site, but I know there are a few fighting game fans amongst the VG247 locals, so here's some shameless self promotion that may just so happen to interest some of you anyway!
We recently nabbed ourselves an interview with Super Street Fighter IV World Champion Daigo Umehara, a name which should be familiar to anyone with even a mild interest in the competitive fighting game scene.
There's some nice gems in there, including his opinion on controllers vs. joypads (he admits that d-pads have their place), hints at characters he wants to see in the arcade version of SSFIV, and he also talks about how the game reignited his passion for the genre.
I'm a huge fan of fighting games myself, so if any of you ever want to kick my ass online (I'm sure some of you would love the chance! Hahahaha!), you can find me on Xbox Live under the gamertag Words of Ivory.
My personal favourites right now are SSFIV and Virtua Fighter 5 (hard to find people to play this one with), but I have all the other usual suspects as well - Tekken, Soul Calibur, Blazblue (I suck at it!), etc.
