Just me writing about my love of gaming and gaming related experiences.

Well, as you all read... I officially retired from Guitar Hero for Street Fighter. Well... can I take it back? lol Guess I'm coming OUT of retirement. Yeah I know that was fast. I'm waiting for all of you to go "I knew it! I knew you couldn't give it up!" And also, some smart ass comments about how I must be picking it up cuz I suck at Street Fighter or something.

Well, the reason why I'm picking it back up is this. And... it's possibly only temporary. Well first why I wanted to quit...I didn't want to compete this year on Guitar Hero because that's all people seem to think I can do. I wanted to show I have talent in other genres. I also wanted to spend time on SF4 and see how well I do with it. Now... why I changed my mind... Recently I got a text from inControl (WCG Ultimate gamer competitor and WCG Starcraft champ) asking if I was going to the World Cyber Games US Invitational. I told him I got an invite but was going to Michigan that weekend. (which the trip to Mi got rescheduled to the week after now) Well after talking to him a bit about how I quit Guitar Hero and all that he was like "you GOTTA GO!" yeah well I thought about it and I want to go...

I basically have a few shots left to qualify for a spot for WCG team USA and I am going to try. I will also attend the WCG US Invitationals if I get sponsorship help. (crossing fingers) and have already been confirmed to go compete in Mexico next month. I'm not really able to invest the time into researching Star Paths so I'm going to just have to see how far I can make it with just pure raw skill and hope I mess up less than the other players. heh

I'll keep my account updated with all of my upcoming events. Since the site is down for a bit I'll have viewable through

So yeah, you guys will see me at 2 more Guitar Hero tournaments this year... we'll see about more MAYBE in the future. :D

Gootecks is not and has NEVER trained me... he basically didn't like the fact I sought help from other people and has since told people to stop helping me so I am not associating myself with him anymore.

I AM being trained by Combo Jack and Mike Ross... they are where I get the strength to keep playing... I owe them both A LOT. Thank you guys for being so awesome... you are TRUE gamers with TRUE skill and a passion for this game. It's nice to get helped by someone who truly loves the game and isn't just looking to get popular off it. :D

I'll keep everyone updated on how my progress goes with these two. They've already been playing matches with me online and teaching me what they know one step at a time and I'm just taking it all in and doing Championship mode online as much as possible. I want to play online ranked matches to get those damn achievements (win 50 win 100 etc) but I want to do well in Championship mode as well and think that's more important. :D

I've only played about 15 championship matches online so far and am a G3-C BLAH! I don't remember how many GP points exactly right now but have about1200 cp points (for now until my next match lol) But I'm beating people with over 1000+ GP which I think is saying a lot. I also am noticing these people have 100+ to 500+ Wins in their achievements. I'm trying not to base anything off the achievements however because you can easily do player matches with a friend to get the 100 wins or whatever. :p LAME! I want all my wins to be legit when I get those achievements!

Well yeah I'm practicing a lot. My first Street Fighter IV tournament is at SCG's Ironman of Gaming although I will be attending other gaming events like EVO to support Justin Wong, Mike Ross, Combo Jack and others. :D
