I saw this story over at Shoryuken, and did it tear at my heart! Osamu Ichikawa is disabled and yet manages to play Street Fighter IV using only his cheek and chin!!! He is asking for a chance to go and compete at EVO in Vegas this year, but doesn't have the funds himself. Even "The Beast", Daigo Umehara is on board trying to set up an event next month to raise funds at Taito Station, a Japanese Arcade.
Jump over to Shoryuken and read Osamu's story and donate so we can watch him play at Evo!

Day 1 Left, Day 2 Right Just to be clear, Jessica Nigri was asked to leave and change, she was allowed back in... But on day 1 of PAX east, she went dressed as Lollipop Chainsaw's star, Juliet Starling, without issue. Day 2 she went dressed as the same character in one of the multiple alt costumes and asked to leave to change. She returned in the cheerleader uniform from day 1 she was asked to change again, cover up, or leave entirely! Did I mention she was at the WB Games booth and is the official character model for the game? So what's the point of this post? Most of the Grotto staff come from a place in the US where people can go grocery shopping wearing A LOT less than what Nigri had on! Now if she were dressed in one of the alternate costumes from Dead or Alive Extreme Beach Volleyball, then I can understand the issue. What do you guys think? Let us know in the comments below or on Google+ and after the break, see Nigri's Day 3 costume! Updated 4/9/2012: Added
