Season’s Beatings 4 photos

with 4 comments

People have voiced interest in photos of the Season’s Beatings 4 tournament so I’m dedicating a post to this. Instead of uploading photos to an online gallery, I prefer posting them directly into my blog because I don’t like clicking thumbnails to see photos one by one. This means longer load times but hopefully won’t be too inconvenient. You are free to use these photos on your own site however you wish as long as my watermark is present.

Daigo playing a casual match of Street Fighter 3: Third Strike. Notice the tiny TVs. Most TVs used at the tournament were CRTs like this. Apparently serious players prefer these because of decreased frame delay. I’ve been gaming on HDTVs for the past 5-6 years so it was rather weird to be playing Street Fighter 4 on these old TVs.

Right after losing to Sanford’s Cammy in the team competition, Daigo chatted with SF3: Third Strike master Issei. Perhaps seeking advice?
