Filmed at our very successful Feb Ranbat/SFV launch tourney at the CQ hotel, in this episode we look at some behind-the-scenes action and what people think of SFV – and we also interview the new president of CouchWarriors: Daniel “Spoony” Finegan and the Treasurer Michael “Javi” Thai.
Hi guys, welcome to the second episode of Stuff Yo’ Couch! It has been a busy month for CouchWarriors with ranbat action galore and a full 3-day schedule at PAX with tournaments and Learn to Play sessions at our booths.
Filmed at the CouchWarriors October ranbat we return with more action footage and flavour and with interviews of two pillars in the community: Jack Gorman aka Pudge from Smash @ Swanston and Edison Nguyen aka GooGieMonA of MKX and poker fame.
Coming up we have the CouchWarriors AGM this Saturday at CCH: https://www.facebook.com/events/1482381598738088/ If you feel like you would like to be a part of CouchWarriors and to help out with tournaments and building up the fighting game community in Melbourne, please feel free to come along!
Hi guys, This is Muttons here. Welcome to the first episode of Stuff Yo’ Couch!
I originally envisioned this show to be a Couchwarriors ranbat recap, in the vein of the old X report (shoutouts to Ali and the Abdos) Where we could go over all things CouchWarriors; go over results, give you guys a peek into the action and sights to be seen at the ranbat, and maybe get a few interviews with important faces and figures in the Melbourne community.
I’m still ironing out what I want to do with the show, so I apologise for any roughness or inconsistencies – please let me know what you guys think or what to see in the future and I’ll be happy to use your feedback to smack the show more into shape.
In this episode we interview Philip John Pretty aka Redact, who’s recently joined team Exile5 in light of his stellar work at BAM7 which turned out to be massive with 500 plus registrants- huge kudos to the Smash community for really blowing up the event with their international guests and hype. And we also have Darren Taing aka Dreadtech- the hardest worker in the Smash community right now, and a deserved winner of the Community Award at BAM7. The August Couchwarriors ranbat had a welcome guest in the form of an SFV preview build courtesy of Capcom Australia, so thanks very much to them- so we have a brief section of some quick opinions from the players. I had a pretty good section of Somniac breaking the game down from a technical perspective- but the audio was lost. Go me.
Other things to mention:
We have the CouchWarriors AGM on November 21st at CCH, so if you guys are interested in helping out with CouchWarriors and building up the Melbourne fighting game community, come down – everyone is welcome to come. https://www.facebook.com/events/1482381598738088/
Also we have the Adelaide major on November 28-29: SXC2015 (Southern Cross Championship) run by Mooseking and the SA crew. I always have a blast at SXC, the first year I went they hired the entire floor of a Thai restaurant and everybody went after the tournament and ate together and told stories, which was awesome. We tried to blatantly rip it off at BAM this year but with mixed success 😛 we’ll see how we go next year. https://www.facebook.com/events/922092641163432/
