Description

Community: The Australian FGC is a series of player profiles from our local scene. In each episode we ask our guest who they are, where they come from, what/who they play, and what is it about fighting games and the FGC that keeps them around. I was just up in Queensland in March for their annual major- Buttonsmash and managed to film a few episodes there. The first Buttonsmash special features the man behind the entire event and the main Brisbane tournament organiser: Aaron "Tulf" Costello. Aaron entered the scene about two years ago, being mainly an Injustice player. At the time, the scene in Brisbane needed a boost with long-time organisers like Slapper Joe and JBHewitt wanting to move onto other things. Aaron and his Keep 'Et Classy organisation stepped to fill the void, and he's a great example of how you don't have to be an FGC veteran to have a huge impact on your scene, all you need is the passion for growing the scene, and Aaron has that in spades. Thanks to all the Buttonsmash staff for a great major, I had a great time, and hope you guys enjoy this episode. BAM6 (Battle Arena Melbourne) is next! Come join in the Melbourne FG major on May 10-11 https://www.facebook.com/events/683528228336404/ http://couchwarriors.org/wp/battlearenamelbourne/ The AUS FGC: http://www.shadowlogic.com.au/ http://www.ozhadou.net/ SA: https://www.facebook.com/SouthAustralianFightingGameCommunity?fref=ts Melbourne: https://www.facebook.com/groups/112053975572334/?fref=ts Brisbane: https://www.facebook.com/groups/brisbanefighters/ Music: "School" by Nirvana "Air Hockey Saloon" by Chris Zabriskie http://freemusicarchive.org/music/Chris_Zabriskie/Vendaface/05_-_Air_Hockey_Saloon "The Temperature of the Air on the Bow of the Kaleetan" by Chris Zabriskie http://freemusicarchive.org/music/Chris_Zabriskie/Undercover_Vampire_Policeman/01_-_The_Temperature_of_the_Air_on_the_Bow_of_the_Kaleetan_1165 "Slow Burn" by Kevin MacLeod http://freemusicarchive.org/music/Kevin_MacLeod/Blues_Sampler/Slow_Burn Credits: My friend Anya http://www.anyasy.com/ for the title screen and "Daichi Dissects!" chibi graphic Shadowloo for Shadowloo Showdown 2013 photos http://www.shadowlogic.com.au/ Sol Abdo for his great photos http://www.flickr.com/photos/soltographyinc/ Michael Wright aka Godly Effect for the Buttonsmash logo https://twitter.com/GodlyEffect Keep 'Et Classy for Buttonsmash photos and footage http://www.keepetclassy.com/ Aaron "Tulf" Costello for this interview: https://twitter.com/KeCAaron And the entire godlike Brisbane community for a fantastic major and $35 all you can eat ribs!
