G4's "Focus: a Documentary" starring Mike Ross

#1 Posted by JJOR64 (19023 posts) -
Focus: a Documentary was just released yesterday.  Directed and produced by Steve Hwang.  What is Focus about?  It's a documentary about Mike Ross, arguably the best E. Honda player right now in Street Fighter IV.  It follows him as he prepares for EVO 2010, shows tourneys he enters during this film's production, and some back story about him as well.  If you are into the fighting game scene, a fan of Mike Ross, fan of competitive games, or just a fan of documentaries that are video game based, this is definitely a must watch.

They took time away from Cops to show this? Amazing.

Sadly, this isn't airing on TV from what I know.  This is the best thing G4 has ever made in years.

Wow, that is really cool. I dig Mike Ross. Seems like a good dude, also pretty fun to listen to.

No they only put it up online, they didn't air it.

That's really unfortunate...

Well, if the network goes down (as rumored) it should live on as a gaming website at least.

I can only think of one other thing they have made that is really any good at all and it's really, really good: Code Monkeys!

At first I read the title as Mike Rowe. Was about to get pissed G4 scooped him before WM.

Will be pulling for Mike Ross this weekend. I really hope the FGC continues to grow and the prize money just keeps getting bigger and bigger. Ross (and Gootecks) have released so much awesome stuff this past year that I hope all of their plans with CrossCounterTV and Collective Gaming are super successful.

Me too, it's better when the home crowd has someone to cheer for.

I'm pretty sure it will be close but as there will only be one American in the top 8 (if that) it won't be as hype as previous years.
 
I guess if poongko can get to the finals it would be pretty hype cuz of the way he plays but I don't think he will. Latif vs Poongko would be stupid as hell, although I reckon the top Viper is going to be Wolfkrone.

I watched it when Mike tweeted about it. Really well made documentary. I enjoyed it a lot.
