The Legend Continues

#1 Posted by MrJared (399 posts) -

 
Last night, after raising over $30,000 to benefit aid relief in Japan, we celebrated by shutting down In N Out with the sensuous, jab-spamming action that is Jackie Chan in Fists of Fire. Old rivalries were settled (ILLiterate is still world's #2), newcomers were converted and the fire of competitive Jackie roared back to life.   
 
I fucking love Jackie Chan.

$30,000?! Congrats Mr J.  Man I wish I could've gone to that.  Fists of Fire, like the other Wonders of the World, can only truly be appreciated up close and with a burger in hand.

Thanks Jackie Chan for 100 years of fighting game magic.

I'm pretty sure Jackie Chan would love you too if he knew what you did. Congrats. Also, I'll get a rom of that now. (Legal copy, of course)

Thanks guys! I saw a lot of GiantBomb folks in the chat which is always great. This community has been really good to me over the past year or so, supporting iPlayWinner and a bunch of other wacky exploits and I really appreciate it.
 
And Jackie Chan is so goooood! I hadn't played it for a couple of months but man, it only takes seconds to get consumed all over again. I should have a video from last night soon where I have a total EVO moment with Mysterious Lion. NEVER GIVE UP!

I saw that on your twitter feed. $30,000 is a crazy amount of money. You guys should be more than proud.

Great to hear that you guys were able to raise that kind of money, and Jackie Chan, whether in video game or movie form, is always a good way to celebrate a job well done.

@MrJared: Police Story Jackie Chan or NO DEAL.

30 grand is a job well done, but think about the money you could've raked in with Jackie Chan cash games! I'll tell you: MILLIONS.

Good work raising all that money. I wish I could have tuned in, but I was gone all day yesterday and forgot.   :(
