Odd Toddlers - OF (This Is For Niko! Wu-Tang!)

I know that this isn't the official video for this song, but if they would have kept going with the Godzilla footage it would have be RAW! Well, at least Niko won't have to ask me to play this again! LOL!

2012-2013 FINALROUNDBATS JAPAN SEASON! (Pre-thoughts.)

First off, I am still in America and I haven't had a proper sit down with the other members of Final Round Japan as of yet. The purpose of this post is to express my thoughts and concerns about this coming FINALROUNBATS season in Japan, the Fighting Game Community (World Wide) and Japanese Fighting Gaming Community who we cater to mainly.



Last year, we re-introduced our concept of a video game tournament within an social event named FINALROUNDBATS. Many steps were made in 2011-2012 to improve the overall Final Round experience in Japan such as a live stream, bigger locations, video promos via Studio Donbe, more games and gaming stations, more amenities and cross promoting with other non-gaming side events/after parties. Our goal was to send a few representatives to Final Round XV to compete in an American Major Gaming Event. We managed to send 6 players and 2 staff members to the event in total. It was a long road but we made it!!!

Our "FINALROUNDBATS TEAM JAPAN" won the Tekken Tag Tournament 2, Guilty Gear and Ultimate Marvel Versus Capcom 3 tournaments. On the outside, the fact that we assembled a team of players from Japan to attend FRXV and then that same very team winning 3 tournaments at FRXV may seem like our biggest accomplishment and in a way it is. But I personally feel that the fact that we helped build a new and more internationally social gaming community in Japan is our most important accomplishment by far.

But where do we go now and how do we go about improving Final Round in Japan this year? This is the part where you get to chime in with your suggestions and questions such as:

What games will be played for this FRB season?
Where will 2012-2013 FRB be held?
How can I participate in FRB?
How can I help FRB?
How can I support FRB?
Where can I buy one of those snappy FRB T-shirts?
Will there be another FRB - "Where Is The Love Button?!" Event?
So on and so forth. . . So please take your time and hit me if you wish to know anything or have a good idea share.




Now without looking into absolutely any of the FGC drama (Worldwide), I would like us all to move forward and focus more on the future of the FGC community worldwide. I am looking very forward to our next season and other gaming event as well but before I go any further and in closing. I would like to say thank you to all that supported FRXV, FINALROUNDBATS, FRB Team Japan and the FGC.

LATE NIGHT with SP★

Thank You! Thank You! Thank You! Thank You! And welcome to my first Late Night post! Well after surfin' the net for a bit I learned a couple of things. I still like Tupac more than Biggie not because he was a better rapper. It's just that he would have been a better politician. Japan's Super Group "Exile" are a bunch of dance move stealing thieves and Marvel Comic's Dead Pool is funny as Hell!

Hi-Five > Exile!

SP★ T-Shirt Diary Entry 002

Date: 2012.03.07
Time: 09:25
Mood: Rested. . . . Well sorta.

FINAL ROUND XV was a blast. I pretty much sold out of every shirt. Even though there was a mis-print / no print on the back of the Black Lion T-Shirt they still sold out. I'll have to go to my printer's in Atlanta get my money back.

Now that I'm awake . . . sorta. It's time to plan out a new design.
