Don’t call it a comeback…

sdtastroBack in the early 2000s I managed a website called “sdtekken” which became a rich resource of all things TEKKEN related and surprisingly… All things arcade stick & console gaming tech related. I found myself doing reviews, testing and even industry news surrounding all things technology driven that would relate to the fighting game community. Well. It’s coming back.

I want to rebuild the old spirit and usefulness that the old SDT site was by evolving it for a new age… But not alone. I’ll be recruiting a team to help me tackle everything. Hopefully by 2014.

This is my real passion. It’s back.

Always for the Community,
