At a tournament in 2004, facing near-certain defeat, Street Fighter player Daigo Umehara turned back a hurricane of an attack from another top player Justin Wong.
What he did, under pressure, in front of a hollering crowd, was incredible. It was one of competitive game's best moments—perhaps its most thrilling play ever. Now you can try to re-create it.
The game Daigo and Justin Wong were playing in 2004 was Street Fighter III: 3rd Strike. The game is being ported and polished this year as an Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 downloadable game dubbed Street Fighter III: 3rd Strike Online Edition. (We got the latest on it yesterday.)
