Sweep The Leg

The grassroots fighting game scene right here in Maine

I'm not sure if I put too much stock in it, or if I actually put any stock in at all. I'm in a gazebo surrounded by a bunch of other men and women, most of them sharing the same steely-eyed gaze toward the myriad screens showing a mix of 'Street Fighter,' various iterations of 'Super Smash Bros.' and the occasional oddball game of 'Killer Instinct' or 'Guilty Gear Xrd.' My next match is about to be called, and while I'm not necessarily nervous, I don't feel particularly warmed up, either. I haven't played the current iteration of 'Street Fighter' consistently for close to six months, and my first tournament match of the night just showed that. It's double elimination, so I have a chance to redeem myself here or watch myself dip out of the brackets with zero dignity or grace.
