Daigo and Justin Wong Re-create Evo Moment 37

For the first part of this article, I want to take you back to a gaming tournament called Evolution 2004. At the time, a gamer called Daigo was facing off against Justin Wong in Street Fighter 3: 3rd Strike. It was a top-8 match where the winner could only advance to the next round if they won two out of 3 games. However, it was during this first game that Daigo create what has now become known as Evo Moment 37. Take a look at this amazing footage of this moment in action. As you will see from the grainy footage, it was hands down one of the most amazing things to happen in the history of fighting game tournaments. More importantly, Daigo was able to pull off a solid execution to take that first game. However, he went on to take 2nd place. Fast forward to a...

WeVideo Cloud Based Video Editor – NAB 2014

Podcast: EmbedSubscribe: Apple Podcasts | Android | RSSWeVideo is a great way for someone like me to really get video out to my Blip and YouTube services. The Cloud based video editor allows me to not have to carry a computer while I am on the floor interviewing people. All I have to do is upload the video to the service then do the editing on a tablet, phone or even a press machine. I tell it where to post and then send it off while I go do another interview. I talk with Krishna of WeVideo about the service. The big question is about uploading the video and using the service on hotel Wifi. Krishna eludes to the fact you might not want to upload RAW content – first set it to a reasonable MP4 bitrate. Once the files are up on the service the system brings...

Day 3 – 360 Heros, Live Streaming, Sony A7s – NAB 2014

Podcast: EmbedSubscribe: Apple Podcasts | Android | RSSToday I took the long walk to upper south hall of NAB. I found the Intel innovation lounge with an interview theater made up of recliner seats. You could kick back and watch as new guests were interviewed by the crew. Wish I would have been able to kick back, but I had to get to work. I spent the morning learning about streaming media options. The first one was with a company called Streambox. They have an alternate streaming service for all broadcasters. You download the software (free) and send to their cloud. The plan works with the concurrent connections and bandwidth used for the stream. For $99, you can stream an hour of media for around 200-300 viewers. LiveU LiveU was at the show. I learned about their newest devices in the LU500, LU400 and streaming stick. The stick...

Adi’s Time Tunnel: F-Zero

Welcome to Adi’s Time Tunnel. This is another feature, where I get to talk about games from the past(AKA retro games).  Up this week, I am talking about F-Zero for the SNES. This was released in November 1990 in Japan, August 1991 in the USA and June 1992 here in the UK. In fact, it was a launch title for the SNES. This was a racing game set in the year 2560, where multi-millionaires have created a racing league known as F-Zero. In this game, you have two modes: Grand Prix Mode and Practise Mode. In either of the modes, you have four different cars/machines to race with. Each of them differ in the way they drive.  The Blue falcon was a good choice for beginner drivers.  The Golden Fox had high acceleration, but a low defense rating.  The Wild  Goose had a lot of power, but low...
