On Tuesday, January 19 starting at 4:00PM PST, I'll be running the first major test for Mr Jared vs The World: the online Street Fighter IV stream where you'll have to face off in a one-on-one battle with me in front of an online audience. This is a series started by my good friend Haunts over at iPlayWinner (of which I'm a media consultant). We're doing a lot of experimentation with the concept and now I'm wanting to give it a shot with a fresh batch of ideas. 

Here are all the details you need to know to participate. 

- At 4:00PM PST on Tuesday, January 19, come back to this page or my uStream page (http://www.ustream.tv/channel/jaredrea) and wait for the stream to go live.

- Once the stream is live, start your own Player Match in Street Fighter IV on Xbox Live and send a Game Invite to my gamertag, "Mr Jared."

- Watch the stream and wait your turn as I'll be taking fight requests in the order of which they're received. Once I join your game (and this is important) make sure you PAUSE THE STREAM! Not pausing the stream will result in lagtastic matches and we'll all weep together.

- We'll then play a best 2 out of 3 set of matches. After the final match has concluded I will then move on to the next player.

And that's it! Also, as part of the experimentation I'll have voice chat enabled so that everyone on the stream can hear your beautiful voice, so bring a headset! Also, please remember that this is all in good fun so leave the salt in the kitchen!

Please let me know if you have any questions and I hope to see you there!

Do I need to be good? I haven't played Street Fighter IV since November.

Are you using an arcade stick or a standard xbox controller?

#4 Posted by haunts (81 posts) -

Woop woop! Might log on and try to beat DAT AZZ before I go to San Jose.. :P

#5 Posted by JJOR64 (18909 posts) -

I might give it a shot later.  I'm going to eat right now, but I'll watch the stream while I eat.

#6 Posted by MrJared (397 posts) -

No, you don't  have to be great.. I'm pretty rusty. The kids on the street call me Rusty Venture :) 
 
And I'm using a stick.. a Mad Catz Round 2 *plugplugplug*

btw, my name is haunts, I run iplaywinner.com and this is my second post on GB thanks to Jared. :P

#8 Posted by eroticfishcake (7782 posts) -

I can't play since I don't own a copy but I'll watch considering the fact I'm not doing a whole lot right now. Well, I want a cup of tea though so I'll come back when it starts.

#9 Posted by MrJared (397 posts) -

ACK! Please note, I had my own gamertag wrong. It's "MR JARED" with a space in the middle. I didn't think that counted :)

@haunts: Hey.  I don't really follow the tourney scene, but I've heard of you from Stang and LordofUltima and apparently you're extremely good.
 
I'd play, but I'm scared so I'll pass...
#11 Posted by Scooper (7882 posts) -

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHH....
 
Ok, I'll turn my 360 on even though it's 2am in the UK and send an invite. I'm AquaticPear.
The games I usualy play with people in the states is 2 or 3 bars but don't be put off it's usualy not that bad but if you don't like it NP I understand. Also I hate fighting Chun-Li! She's one of my worst matchups as both a Rose and Guile player but whatever ;).

#12 Posted by JJOR64 (18909 posts) -
@FluxWaveZ: Just do it for fun.  :)   I probably will after I eat.
#13 Posted by haunts (81 posts) -

Flux, word up! I actually go to GB a lot just havent made an account yet. You guys can ask me anything about SF4. ^_^

#14 Posted by mubress (1517 posts) -

I would love to play, but I don't have an XBOX. Plus the lag would be terrible as I'm from the U.K
 
Nice idea though, will watch for a bit before bed :)

#15 Posted by AjayRaz (12418 posts) -

I'd play you, but you seem really good so i'm not going to embarrass myself.

2 posts and you've already got a foothold in this community...
 
Also, welcome to forums!

I'm game for getting my butt kicked :D

#19 Edited by Napalm (9020 posts) -

I'll be sending an invite your way in about a minute.
 
Wait, 2 out of 3 sets? Do you mean, like, out of three matches, winning two? So like, the best of 3 two-match games?

#20 Posted by haunts (81 posts) -

Thanks guys. :D 
 
I'll try to post more I promise... where does all the fighting game talk go down around here? Can someone link me? Sorry.. -_-;

#21 Posted by FluxWaveZ (19308 posts) -
@haunts: Well really, there's not a lot of general fighting game discussion, but the Street Fighter IV forums are very active.  And as Super approaches, that forum will also pick up the pace.
#22 Posted by eroticfishcake (7782 posts) -
@haunts: Apart from lurking in the SFIV section, I wouldn't really know.

My performance was crap

#25 Edited by nrain (1274 posts) -

it may be 20 past 2 in the morning but this shit is on. 
Edit: sorry but I can't wait that long seeing how far my name was on the invite list, I need sleep.
#26 Posted by addictedtopinescent (3645 posts) -

Fun too watch, Jared you have made my night less boring 
Cheers 

#27 Posted by mubress (1517 posts) -
@nrain: ditto
#28 Posted by eroticfishcake (7782 posts) -

Having two Chun Lis is just confusing now. O_o

#29 Posted by FluxWaveZ (19308 posts) -

Man, those were some fun matches.  As explained in the op, I doubt Jared was at his top game and he would have owned me at another time, but it was still pretty fun!

#30 Posted by JJOR64 (18909 posts) -
@FluxWaveZ: Plus are are playing online.  Offline is a completely different game.
#31 Posted by FluxWaveZ (19308 posts) -
@JJOR64: So I hear...  I'd really like to be able to play matches offline, but no one plays at the local arcade (except for some really casuals, which I obviously destroy).  Only other option is NPCs and... well, they suck too.
#32 Edited by JJOR64 (18909 posts) -
@MrJared: GGs.  I hope my connection was good for you.  With some people my connection hates me.  Most of the time it's good though.
#33 Posted by ArbitraryWater (11477 posts) -

Aw man. If I still had a copy of SFIV I would totally be down for some ass-kicking by the man who brought Jackie Chan in Fists of Fire into our lives.

#34 Posted by Napalm (9020 posts) -

Wow, that was fun. I was getting a lot of my shit down pat tonight. Felt good.

#35 Posted by turbomonkey138 (4950 posts) -

Do this again it was fun .

#36 Posted by eroticfishcake (7782 posts) -

Good games. Look foward to more (and I don't even play beat 'em ups. O_o).

#37 Posted by MrJared (397 posts) -

Well, that was pretty awesome. Thanks a lot you guys for humoring me with this experiment. Haunts has been doing this for some time now and I figured it was about time I took a shake at it myself. We'll have to do this again sometime when I'm not having to cook dinner ;)

My network performance was crap.
#39 Posted by Stang (4726 posts) -

Haunts on GB? Wow!
 
I would have played but I am pretty damn hung over :\ Nobody likes a free Stang.

#40 Posted by Jeffsekai (7026 posts) -

#41 Posted by Napalm (9020 posts) -

I beat Jared's ass. I feel boasting about it. Sue me! Get hype! Eat shit! Donkeypunch!

You are dangerously close to turning into Flushes.
#43 Posted by lordofultima (6208 posts) -

Well, too bad I missed this, would have been hype for sure. Stupid grocery shopping.

#44 Posted by JJOR64 (18909 posts) -

I think Flux, Napalm, and I were the only ones that won I think.    haunts won as well, but he doesn't count.   :P

No, I'm nowhere near that scumbag. I'm also not entirely serious. I am giddy from winning, that's about it.
#47 Posted by AniMoney (957 posts) -

Bah! I was playing, but I didn't know this was going on. I need to set up my laptop near my xbox or something so I can troll the forums while playing. Next time for sure.

OMG I would have been so hype for this if I wasn't at a ranbat while it was going on....probably the same for specialbuddy, who I hear has pretty rough hands
