Gootecks caught up with Spooky (Victor Fontanez) of Team Spooky fame at the Street Fighter 25th Anniversary grand finals tournament to talk shop about some recent happenings in the fighting game community. Spooky explains why he has taken a break as of late and his thoughts on streaming EVO again this year.

Victor also gets into the subject of IPL picking up Capcom fighting games, noting that it's a good thing for players, but they've had some rocky edges to their streams so far. He added that he knows that they can do better, as there's good people in the organization and they're working hard, but wants to see them step up, similar to how Capcom did with their recent tournaments.

Hit the jump for more.

Gootecks also spoke with Capcom's Matt Dahlgren, where he covers the 25th Anniversary tournament and some of the struggles they had putting things together. Dahlgren said the 25th Anniversary series was definitely a success, but added he was disappointed that they weren't able to get GR|Breno Fighters over here because of visa issues.

He noted that when Breno Fighters won against Tokido, some of the audience members were crying because they were so happy, and that having a representative from Brazil meant a lot for their community out there, and Capcom is going to try their best to make it up to them. Check out the entire piece below.

It really is a shame that Breno Fighters (and the rest of Brazil's players for that matter) got screwed over by the US consulate. The level of intensity at the Brazil qualifiers was great.

If Breno destroys Infiltration in the exhibition, will he get anything out of it (other than bragging rights)?

@3 No. Exhibitions are nothing, even one time wins over Infiltration, like K-Brad is not worth that much. He will not beat him again.

Spooky should have kept growing dat beard.

And Dahlgren should shave it if he isn't going to PR Rogaine.

@10 Lolwut, a tournament is terrible just because some matches were played offstream? Matches that are gonna be up on youtube within the week no less? My god, you stream trolls just feel so entitled.

Spooky's got a good face, and he has a way of speaking that is really fun to listen to. It's somewhere between an arcade buddy slinging words, and a commentator who knows his shyte and wants to educate the audience.

As much as I love the duo of Chrismatrix(sp?) and Yipes, I would rather have Spooky and Yipes all day.
