Yipes tells touching story about Remix - mini series examines the hype and competition of Defend the North

Posted by Jonathan 'Catalyst' Grey • February 16, 2014 at 6:45 p.m. PST

Kahleem Poole Tejada of Kahl-One Film Productions has put together a short mini series taking a look back at the Defend the North tournament, which took place last month in New York City.

The series mainly follows the Empire Arcadia crew, and the second episode features a very touching story from IFC Yipes about Nelson "EMP|Remix" Reyes who passed away late last year, and how they became close friends.

The fighting game community is a place where you experience many highs and lows, and this series does a good job of capturing the essence, love and passion we put into these games and our scene.

Hit the jump to see all three clips.

Shut the hell up with the 'Burn it down' and show some respect.

Allow me to put 2 quotes here that may sum this up:

"If we open a quarrel between past and present, we shall find that we have lost the future." - Winston Churchill

"Forgiving does not erase the bitter past. A healed memory is not a deleted memory. Instead, forgiving what we cannot forget creates a new way to remember. We change the memory of our past into a hope for our future." - Lewis B. Smedes

RIP Remix. Good job to EMP for their victories at Defend the North. Thank you Team Pie for bringing a major to NYC. Here's to a better future for the FGC as a whole.

I hope.

Enough with the EMP hate. A Man died, and all you can say is "F EMP blah blah blah". The FGC needs to respect the players, they are the most important part of the FGC.

RIP Remix.

Shoutout to Yipes, one of my favorite UMVC3 players, giving a touching story about EMP's own Remix who is also awesome player who we'll all miss (R.I.P Remix).

Thank you for the kind words on this project, everyone. Our team worked hard on the production and most importantly, the EMP members bared their hearts and souls for the final result.

Major appreciation for keeping it positive as well!

I saw the Remix bit live on stream. It was one of the only times I've seen the stream monsters being so respectful. So, that made me glad.
