wolvamat is an unknown quantity at this point
Default It's been a long time, shouldn't have left you

Well lookie what we got here, if it isn't your friendly neighbourhood wolvamat. Came to visit the site because I was curious to see if it was still alive and kicking and see how much the game has developed in my absence.


I joined here in 2002 when I was like 10 or 11 years old. I believe I came across xmvsf originally after I saw "Xmen Vs. Streetfighter" listed in the top games of this flash games website, I think it was arcadepod or something. I saw it on a school pc looking over somenones shoulder and I remember thinking "there is no way... It's just going to be a cheap knock off that won't play anything like streetfighter" that afternoon when I got home from school I managed to download the client and soon realised that.. HOLY.... ITS MULTIPLAYER?! WHAT DO YOU MEAN YOU PLAY STREETFIGHTER ONLINE?! LIKE... WITH OTHER PEOPLE!? Blew my little 10 year old mind.

I used to spend my christmas holidays (or what a lot of you might call summer vacation) playing SFO (or 'xmvsf') all day long. I had a dialup 56k modem and I used to question why I would completely own someone for 30 seconds straight and nothing would happen to their health meter. I used to hear a lot of talk about 'teleporting' too.. I saw some poeple quit games because they "didn't know how to teleport". Still none of that discouraged me though.. my life long love of streetfighter games and xmen characters was enough to keep me fighting through it all and I used to have an absolute blast with this game. I consider it a major part of my childhood and I still think of the time I had with the game and a lot of the community members still to this day.


Having said all that, the community was a different story. I was a 10 year old trying to communicate with the unforgiving brutalness that is the internet. It was never going to go well.
I have read a couple of my old posts from 13 years ago and they are just cringeworthy. I was a very immature individual and I said a lot of nasty things to a lot of nice people. If I offended any of you personally, I am sorry.. I'm a very different person to what I was, so many aspects of my life have changed over the years like I'm sure all of yours have as well.

Basically all I want to say is it's really good to see you again!


It's really great to see some old names still around like Bloodpack, SBYRD5, SSJ Karma, Leftyfb, Solidsnake76, Asshole, Elena, and of course TMyApp (I actually searched for TMyApp just for the hell of it, and that's how I found my way back to this site) I'm sure there are still a lot more names that I will recognize as I continue my lurking..

Whats up every one!
