FireBatHero’s StarCraft Victory Ceremonies

Thursday, April 30th, 2009


Posted by Tony Huynh.
Now that I’ve got a brief break in my ridiculous schedule I’ve been following season 3 of GomTV.net’s Starcraft tournament. I watched a replay of Korean player FireBatHero and the announcers Tasteless and Super Daniel Man mentioned that after FireBatHero’s victories he will often taunt his opponents in elaborate celebrations. This is very uncharacteristic of the usually very respectful Korean players. Of course after hearing this I went straight to YouTube to look up FireBatHero and I was not disappointed.

FireBatHero runs a full circle around Savior after he beats him.

In a way this celebration reminds me of MMA and K1 fighter Genki Sudo’s opening ceremonies with just how premeditated it was. While unsportsmanlike these celebrations really bring some drama to the game of StarCraft and I think that adds to the whole experience.

Best MMA Fights & Genki Sudo: Real Life Video Game Character

Sunday, November 9th, 2008



So it was a lazy Sunday morning and I was just checking out WorldofMing.com to get my World of Warcraft rogue fix and saw this thread about the Best Mix Martial Arts Fights on the feed.

While I do watch some MMA fights when I catch them, I do not really keep up with them, and I only know a few fighters by name. The videos posted by Trops are very entertaining though. Here are some of the highlights.

This fight is straight out of a movie especially with the music. Just two guys standing toe-to-toe and pounding on each other over and over. No defense and not a lot of technique here, but relentlessly entertaining nonetheless.

Don Frye vs Takayama

This is another great fight. Lots of drama in this one.

Matt Hughes vs. Frank Trigg 2

The most amazing thing was actually posted by Nobahd in the comments section. It was a compilation video of Genki Sudo. Again I do not really follow MMA very closely, so I have never seen this guy before.

Genki Sudo is like a character out of a fighting video game, using flashy “are-you-kidding me?” moves that shouldn’t work on his opponents, but do because they are so unorthodox. His pre-fight introductions are hilarious also. Check out these videos:
