Daigo Umehara confirms he's gameinn, sorta

Posted by Jonathan 'Catalyst' Grey • May 19, 2010 at 4:51 p.m. PDT
Baqsam pointed out this video translated by KeNzo, where Daigo Umehara confirms he plays under the name 'gameinn' on both PSN and Xbox Live.
When he games under this name, it's at a friend's house, so it's possible that even if you see gameinn, sometimes it won't be Daigo.

And there goes the CONCRETE proof I've been looking for. I suspected it was him given the style, but still wasn't positive yet.

Wish you could filter replays by gamertag. :-(

So basically, the GT and PSN isn't actually his; it's just his friend's.

so if gameinn plays awesome it's daigo if he chokes it's his daigo's friend. convenient enough haha :D but probably true

I heard he was a nurse too. Makes sense. You gotta have a dayjob. Anyone see the documentary? He lives with his parents (really common in Asian until married I think) in a real humble looking home and just keeps his trophies stacked in a cardboard box in a random corner of his living room.

Not like being SF champ gets you mansions and sweet cars.

Well Obviously he doesn't want to be swarmed by people doing friend requests. so that's why he would make that excuse about his friend's house.

Daigo is a liar , I have lost respect for him.

DChiink said on May 19, 2010 at 7:23 p.m.

I'm glad that he isn't modest 24/7, talkin shiz is what SFIV is about!

TheCreator said on May 19, 2010 at 8:12 p.m.

@13 are you stupid? why would daigo lie to us like that even if he did he wouldn't make any sense. Im not defending him or being a fanboy im just telling the truth so if you dont like it, tough.

CMAyhem said on May 19, 2010 at 8:51 p.m.

also this video's translation looks so fake lol
u know, just because ppl are talking about daigo playing online right now, the made a video to justify it.
anyone here knows enough japanese to confirm what they are saying!?

#17
Baqsam said on May 19, 2010 at 9:01 p.m.

It's cool how he's playing online, and thanks for the mention. :)

Sektah84 said on May 19, 2010 at 9:05 p.m.

I'll man up if I do face him and get my ass kicked lol

SayaGam said on May 19, 2010 at 9:23 p.m.

what a liar !!! friends GT yeah right... so he lives with his friend or what? he spends like 14 hours playing in his friends home right? just check the number of fights for Ryu and Guile and of course If he lost was his friend right? I have lost respect for him too

#20
yes4me said on May 19, 2010 at 9:37 p.m.

ROFL at the posts above me (ex: #21). Like you know him so well you know he is lying. Jezz... even a joke or a funny news has to turn into: "you suck" or "you lie"
Are you guys republicans or something?

#21
Saikobooru said on May 19, 2010 at 10:37 p.m.

Meh, I'd say that he is lying about playing it at a friend's place, because he seems to spend extremely much time with it.
It's just a nicer way to say that he doesn't want to constantly put up with scrubs sending him friend invites/challenges.

#22
JinZo said on May 19, 2010 at 11:20 p.m.

@21

Wait what? How would you lose your respect over something like this, and how can you accuse someone without having any kind of proof whatsoever? As far as I know, any respect for Daigo comes from his tournament plays and his influence on the fighting game community. What the hell does it matter if he plays on consoles or not on his friends account?

#23
Dicktator said on May 19, 2010 at 11:37 p.m.

Do you wanna play Daigo? Well you can't play daigo. Daigo will punish you moddafacka.

#24
yes4me said on May 19, 2010 at 11:59 p.m.

#23: I don't see how he is lying... when he is working as a nurse. A nurse has to work a lot... therefore he can't be online often.

#25
HardRojo said on May 20, 2010 at 12:23 a.m.

@#18 Yep, the video is translated correctly(kind of) and rest assured the part about Daigo confirming gameinn as the GT he uses is true.

#26
Super_Street_Fuker said on May 20, 2010 at 1:31 a.m.

whoopeedooo who cares ...if its him its him if its not then not.

but just for the fact he confirm gameinn is him i hope he get spam by friend request everyday

#18: It is correctly translated as Rojo said.

This explains the videos I've seen where Gameinn sucks badly.

#29
Stingah said on May 20, 2010 at 10:55 a.m.

Thats when you know you are bad mofo - you dont have a gamertag!!!! but yet you play online.

Question: If he is a male nurse but yet plays the game at a friend's house.... how the hell does he find the time to play/master this game?

shiryu22 said on May 20, 2010 at 12:47 p.m.

Heh, I wonder if American trashtalk/culture is rubbing off on him.

Izagaia said on May 20, 2010 at 3:48 p.m.

I have seen the name "gameinn" on PSN before. Too bad I cannot recall whether it was a name I actually played or one of the many that you briefly see "able to connect to" but then PSN giving you the rather lame excuse that you were unable to connect. But it is most likely the scenario where you connect, however; being that you are a U.S. player and they are asian, they simply choose to "kick" you.

Online discrimination or fearful of the possibility of encountering a crappy connection?.. you decide.

kprime said on May 20, 2010 at 4:03 p.m.

@32
Dont say American, better say north american trashtalk/culture as this places if full of gringos who complain a lot when they know that they suck at something.

#35
StreetReport said on May 21, 2010 at 7:38 a.m.

So he plays a lot more on xbox with almost 15000 bp for each character and is understandable due to the number of players on xbox so there's a rumor that he seeks to play with some foreing players and right know there's is a player he's looking to play and I think he mains ElFuerte yep. The source of this is my friend Ryota who lives in Japan
