Diary of a Gamer: Latif details his experience at SBO 2012, match footage featuring Cantona's Zangief RZR|Latif has begun writing blog entries over on the Razer website detailing his trip to Japan to compete in SBO 2012. This is part 1 of his Diary of a Gamer and Latif talks about his arrival in Japan, some of the top level Japanese players he faced at the Sega Avion arcade and more.


Below is a bit to get you started.

So after I unpacked my stuff, we went straight down to SBO business. Fortunately, my cousin lived about 10 minutes away from the best arcade in Osaka which was called “Sega Avion”. This arcade hosts a lot of the best players from all over Japan, so luckily for me it was a great way to fight against the best on a daily basis before SBO. A few notable names to mention that showed up were players such as Uryo “Best Sakura”, Cantona “Best Zangief”, Dogura “Best Bison”, kog “Best T hawk”, Amiyu “Best Gen”, Noriyasu “Best Dhalsim” and many other amazing players. First day I didn’t get to play a lot of players since I showed up late at night but I still got to play some great matches mainly against Uryo and Cantona. The matches between me and Uryo were amazing and very close, final score ended being 6-1 in my favor.

I really wanted to play some more matches but unfortunately he had to leave early. Cantona also really impressed me with his amazing play style that was mainly based on incredibly fast reactions to every attack I did and the ability to read every movement. It’s really hard to explain such thing in words so I will leave you guys with some matches to watch instead.

Hit the jump to check out a few of the matches between RZR|Latif and Cantona's Zangief from the Sega Avion.
