That is the worst piece of translating I have ever heard. Why would you translate in THIRD PERSON for a professional interview?

GameSpot Asia's Jonathan Toyad speaks to legendary pro Street Fighter player Daigo Umehara about his character usage for EVO 2012, his new book and which of his competitors he's keeping an eye on.
being interviewed by this interviewer is like talking to a really annoying and jumpy fat teddybear that makes every second of the interview awkward. the player is real cool tho
LOL "Copy the top players." The road to glory is to just rip off of other people's play styles, folks lol.
@Old_Schooler_Dan Have you ever done anything competitive before? Like sports? Martial Arts? Etc?
You always try to copy the top players in anything when you are starting out - this is to learn the techniques that have already been tested over time through countless of trials.
Why do you think you read text books in school to learn something? Or why boxers and foot ball players watch old matches and games? It's the same concept.
But - like anything else - you have to develop originality from those techniques you learned and develop it further to actually be truly one of the greats.
F*** SFXT. I'm beginning to feel the same sentiment towards that game as I did with MVC3. Still wish I held on to my copy of MVC3, though, even though I wouldn't be playing it.
sfxt will be ok. there's been a recent spurt of fighters on the scene, so its normal to have a shift in focus from 1 title to another and back to that said title,especially when preparing for evo. its normal for players to go with their strengths.(titles they are more familier/comfortable with etc.).
sfxt is deffinately a fun game i enjoy the system and expect to see a return in interest
a an increase number of players following this title.
Funny, he doesnt play SFxT because its not popular in Japan either.
SFxT is the anti-hype equation. :P
"Copy the top players" is actually really good advice because when you're learning a character (or anything for that matter), it's an excellent way to get started to learn lethal combos and matchups. At the end, no. You don't just do the exact thing but you learn what works by copying. Then you add your own style to what works which gets into the whole mindgame thing.
@sirkibble2I know what you mean, a lot of people tend to mimic the pros by the combos, but what I usually do to learn is to just observe some of the special moves, analyze the combos in order to understand it so that way I don't have to learn insane combos to be good, it's all about skill in the FGC.
I'm shock that SxT is still going to be at evo. It's been criticize, that it isn't tournament worthy, and there absolutely no hype for the game anymore, and for good reason. Aw well!
@FinalDuo1886 It's not like they can suddenly pull the game from the roster. The decision was made a long time ago. It probably won't be in the lineup next year.
@FinalDuo1886 inorite! I wish I could just forget the game exists and pretend I never bought it. Right now I just have that feeling that I have it and I want to think it is a really good game but I don't get it and will at some point come back to it and enjoy it, but I don't think it's happening.
I love Daigo. He is one of my favorite celebrities let alone pro gamers. And that's not just because he is a legendary SF player. He is a really smart person and whenever he talks my respect towards him only increases. Even if he doesn't always win he always leaves a respectful image and this only makes him even more legendary.
"Copy the top players" ??? Bad advice Daigo. I know you are good, but the idea is to beat the top players. I have a better advice. There is always someone better than you. So keep training.
