An in-depth view as to why Tokido reigns as my favorite Street Fighter.
Tokido is a young but exceptionally accomplished player of numerous fighting games in Japan, but he is perahps best known for his adept use of Akuma in Super Street Fighter 4 as he is honored as the best Akuma player in the world. He is known to have even taught Austrailia's best, Toxy, a few extra techniques to really improve his game. As an Akuma player myself, I naturally have respect for Tokido as well as his game. His mix ups, mind games, spacing, and precise execution, have even granted him victories over Daigo himself.
But aside from being a grand player, Tokid also has a well placed personality. While Daigo is quiet and rarely speaks, Tokido is more alike to most of us, knowing he has skill but he doesn't rub it in, while at the same time picking moments to really rise in status in the community. We all remember one such moment in the SoCal Regionals tournament when Tokido finished off ClackeyD's Ibuki and set forth to become godlike.
In addition to having a great sense of humor as well as having a good sense of grandeur (I totally would have done the same xD) Tokido also shares a good sense of socialism with the community, a quality more commonly shared by most of us that links Tokido to us, giving us connection and familiarity to a great player. He gives input back to the community that helps players to up their game with greater confidence to play Akuma. In this 2 part interview, it shows Tokido answering questions as well as you get a good idea of who Tokido is, his personality, as well as how one would be able to get along with him. He's basically like one of the guys, but he just happens to be an extremely good player. It's also interesting to see him give his opinion on other high level players!
In conclusion, I see Tokido as a Grand Master, a very great player that gives back to his fellow players and apparently seems like a good person to be around. He is seems to be a great role model as well (no smoking guys haha) But as well, he has a great sense of humility and humbleness. He doesn't absorb attention but only accepts it, and that is what allows him to differ from players with conceited attitudes. Among his most humble and humerous moments, is an early match with the Japanese model female player Haruna Anno. Observe and enjoy :D
In the end, Tokido remains my favorite player as he continues to awe and inspire us all. To Tokido, Thank You for playing Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition.
Ever wonder how Capcom finally came to their decision for the characters in the Street Fighter 4 series?
Capcom only acts when you have about 50 million signatures. Then they start to think about maybe putting the requested character in the game.
Capcom Big Wig: Only 50 million? The fans today just aren't passionate enough. I like Rolento but he's just--there's something about him that, oh I can't put my finger on it..
Secretary: Sir, I believe that the young people say that he's got swagger and a strong pimp hand. By the way, your daughter is on line one, sir.
Capcom Big Wig: Thank you, Yoko. Rolento's pimp hand is way too powerful. I'll have Ono nerf that attribute immediately. Hello princess..I..Now don't cry--a divorce only means that you'll have two houses but mommy and daddy won't be living together. It will be loads of fun!! Of course daddy loves you..You want Ryu dressed like a member of "Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch"? Done. You want a really, really evil looking Ryu with a hole in his chest because he's decided to embrace the whatchamacall it, thingambob, evil stuff? Done. Now, sweetie, daddy has a question for you. Would you like to see Alex, Elena or Q in Super Street Fighter 4 AE? I see..Look, daddy has to get back to work--I'll call you later.
Secretary: Shall I inform Ono-san that Evil Ryu, Alex, Elena and Q will be on the roster, sir?
Bigwig: Only Evil Ryu, Yoko. My daughter likes him--thinks he's cuter than Ken. She used to like Ken until she found out he was married and had a baby. Be sure to tell Ono that I want Rolento's pimp hand toned down and to remove all his swagger.
Secretary: I'll get right on it, sir. By the way, Seth Killian is on line two.
Bigwig: Killian? There's a Seth.
Killigan: That works for us in the states.
Secretary: Sir, there's another smart ass fan trying to talk to the head of Capcom.
Capcom Bigwig: Put him on hold.

Chris Hu is a fighting game player with an accent that makes you wish he commentated your life.
Chris Hu is a well known player throught the fighting game community. He has commentated many matches as well as participated in them. He is, however, mostly well known for his voice, his accent, and the way he sounds. He's hilarious. He's funny. Personally I think I would be his friend and bring him to all the parties. His sense of humor is great and and his pronounciations for english are just too godlike.
Other than commentating, Chris Hu also interviews players of the fighting game community, he is able to also give advice on fighting games as well as go into depth when he explains game mechanics. In addition, his experience also allows him to give intel on a players thought process based on what he see's in his gameplay, usually descibing the players ability to read movements or strategies.
Chris Hu's English, or rather Engrish is very apparant. Here he is being very honest about dating as well as commentating xD
He is the Chinese stereo type we all love, and he's quite the comedian. I'd like to meet this guy and play him too. I've done some commentating myself and it would be a distinct honor to commentate with him. I hope the rest of you enjoy Chris Hu's accent as much as I do.

Every now and then you either do so well that someone is yelling at you for it, or you get angry yourself and decide to call it quits. Take a look at the infamous art of rage quitting xD
You're unleashing hell on you're opponent, you've anticipated their every move. Suddenly their dizzied and you're about to unleash either your Ultra that you've earned through focus attacking, or Super. When all of a sudden, the screen reads "Connection with the other player(s) has been lost" and you hit OK.
There has never been such a chump move in the history of gaming other than hitting pause during a match to mess up your opponent's timing xD
Rage Quitting. It has almost become an art for the many times players have done it. Either in the Street Fighter series or other games. People get salty and say goodbye.
Even better are the ones that leave angry messages in your mail XD
But I love how some people respond to these rage messages XDXD
Rage quitters and raging sore losers are all over the place on XBOX LIVE. They come in all ages, males and females alike. But nobody likes losing, it's true. But the best way to deal with that is to practice. Last night by chance I also played against Cinderkin online. He plays a mean Yun and I am proud to say he is neither a rage quitter or a rage messager :D
Today the date is 6/23/2011, and I recieved my Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition in the mail thanks to Capcom =D! It came with the bobble heads and I'm hyped XD
In this story I would like to share some videos with you all that are informative, funny, and just plain ridiculous xD!
In this video, it shows you why a single taunt can cost you an entire fight. To taunt, or not to taunt. Damn xD
Here we have a potentially great mix up tool for Oni where he can appear behind the opponent after cancelling his F. Hard Punch.
These 2 videos are simply here because I've never heard a guy complain and make me laugh at the same time about a character that Capcom put in their games. Oh wait...
These one down right makes me wonder how many people will abuse this xD Yun's Palm x10? C'mon now lol!
And finally, a few "wtf" moments :D
My conclusion for Super Street Fighter Arcade Edition? Damn Capcom, you really did it this time XD LOVE IT!
Ever wanted to get a Kinect and have a real game to play it with? Every wanted to play Street Fighter on Kinect? Well with this new mod now you can. Get a real workout while playing on of the best fighting games ever? Do I smell EVO tourney? Check it out!
