Newcomers to the FGC are often fascinated when they come across highlights that occurred before their time. Years ago, rivalries between the West and East Coast were a lot more prevalent. This evening, prominent scene veteran James Chen will take the opportunity to share history on the golden years.
You can expect him to bring up notable tournament legends like Alex Valle, John Choi, Mike Watson, Eddie Lee, Justin Wong, Henry Cen, Arturo Sanchez. Other talking points include Marvel vs. Capcom and Street Fighter Alpha 3's earlier era, when East Coast legend Eddie Lee once dominated the scene.
You may also hear him bring up how the community used to congregate on newsgroups, long before the debut of grassroots destinations like Shoryuken.com.
James Chen notes that the program won't be a comprehensive coverage as his knowledge for certain aspects isn't complete. "Just some key moments," he says, and encourages other old-timers to hop in the chat to participate. Overall, this is a great opportunity to pick up a wealth of knowledge about the past.
The stream is running on the official UltraChen channel, which can be accessed here.
