Capcom vs. SNK 2 tournament footage from 2008 featuring Desk's E. Honda, Sakura, Blanka team

Posted by Steven 'Dreamking23' Chavez • January 5, 2013 at 1:34 p.m. PST
Earlier this morning we were sent some interesting tournament footage from 2008 featuring none other than combo extraordinaire, Desk. These clips are from the Battle of Destiny tournament and showcase Desk playing Capcom vs. SNK 2 using a team of E. Honda, Sakura and Blanka.

People often wonder if Desk has ever played competitively and although this footage is rather old, it's still awesome to check out.

Hit the jump to check out more.

Yeah, it's front page news turkey. (Front page news that you have the power to edit btw)

I hate you people, so annoying, all news is on the front page and it doesn't matter if it has been out for a while, not everyone has seen it.

It's cool seeing Desk play for once. His Sakura is really good

he sucks I've played his type many a times- they have one powerful trick that they have one or two ways to set up. If they hit you with it, it hurts. But their gameplay is weak. Next.

Desk, if you're reading this, well, we all respect you a heck of a lot, so don't feel like you have to enter a major tournament again to impress us or anything. Your videos and music are impressive enough! But if you do, we would all cheer for you no matter how you do.

Think it over.

People want him to play in tournaments so they could ridicule him and feel better about themselves. A couple commenters already proved my point.

cool, this is definitely more exciting than his Bison SF4 vids (no offense intended).

Forget Desk.... Yamazaki93 is the real amazing player in these vids.

Desk's Sakura and Yamazaki's Rolento are def the highlights for all of these matches.

Yes, this is cool footage. I don't have time to explore forums to find every epic fighting game video made in the last 15 years :/.

These videos are from Battle of Destiny which I remember seeing the advertisements for actually. I think it was in 2008 or so? Anyway, the beta for HD Remix was there, which brings back nostalgia.
