'He's the grandfather of Street Fighter to me'—Clip from upcoming FGC documentary explores the massive influence of Alex Valle

Main purpose of Street Fighter 5's beta is to test out online infrastructure; Sony key in assisting with cross platform play

"He's the grandfather of Street Fighter to me," Justin Wong states in black and white. Alex Valle is a household name for almost any FGC fan, but many aren't aware of just how grand his legacy really is. At a time where the U.S. didn't have a scene that could compete internationally, he was one of the few that stood above the rest of his counterparts.

Beyond just being a strong player, his community building efforts weren't rivaled until years later when Alex Jebailey would step forward to create Community Effort Orlando.

Fortunately, this upcoming documentary by Shankar Tablada, titled The Fighting Game Community, makes sure to give due time to one of the greatest trailblazers of our scene. Also, in case you missed it, check out the first trailer for it here.

Check out the clip below for today's history lesson.

GordoRLZ embodies the zany nature of El Fuerte in this impressive compilation

I almost want to preface this with a "may cause seizures" warning simply because of the visually chaotic overload that is this El Fuerte player.

One of the greatest in Mexico and one of the top El Fuerte players in the world, DS|GordoRlz shows off some of his most impressive wins in this zany compilation.

Gordo runs circles around his opponent's minds with a controlled chaos that's both exciting and intimidating. Perhaps his most lethal trait, Gordo is able to consistently hit El Fuerte's incredibly difficult links, and do so online.

Take this sequence for example:

From incredible game play across multiple titles to huge upsets and wild theatrics, CEO 2015 was one of the most hype tournaments of the year.

Kazunoko: I feel the U.S. has caught up to Japan at this point in Ultra Street Fighter 4

After CEO 2015, Ryota Inoue, better known in the community as Kazunoko, participated in a short interview.

Mike Ross asked Kazunoko if he felt the level of play from American competitors in Ultra Street Fighter 4 was starting to match that of Japan, considering MCZ|Daigo, EG|Momochi and others Japanese players had been knocked out of the tournament.

"Yes, I definitely feel the U.S. has caught up to Japan at this point," said Kazunoko through a translator.

Inoue also had some kind words for Gustavo "801 Strider" Romero's Abel.

While Kazunoko has faced many different Abel players in Japan, 801 Strider's style was totally different from those people, he noted.

Out of all of the Abel players he's competed against, Strider had the most scary okizeme setups he's ever faced, said Kazunoko through a translator.
