    As many of you know, NeoRussell went on a trip to Angola, Africa back in October to meet his girlfriend's family. While there, one of Russell's goals was to meet up with the countries fighting game community "scene" and see what it was all about. Russell goes in to great detail concerning the trip and is a must read for anyone who would someday be interested in making the same journey to the country.

    Regarding the players and the community, Russell states that Capcom and Namco players were nowhere to be found and that the scene the town called "Natgil" had consisted of Mortal Kombat players who went by the "Mortal Kombat Titans". Russell describes their community as being "honest with their gameplay". Read Russell's blog in full below:

First off, Welcome to TestYourMight! My main objective nowadays is to keep you as updated as I possibly can in regards to NetherRealm Studios news, especially dealing with Mortal Kombat and Injustice.

Thank you for your support!

      Epic! That's what MK should be like everywhere. Also, props to being one of the few non-jaded Jade players! So rare that I dropped the character since all I ever found in the forums was nothing but complaints and long since discovered OTG tech.
      Good read. Glad you had a good time there.

      I literally had a dream several months back that I made the exact trip Russell did from Canada to Angola and played MK with Eddy Wang. Way to live my dream, NeoRussell. It's just too bad you hadn't been studying Portuguese for the last three years like I have been. :p

      awesome post Russell, it's nice to know how fighting game communities flourish in other countries.

      a little off-topic though: but when will you visit the Philippines again? being a Rocket Raccoon mainer in marvel, i would LOVE to see your Coon tech in person. also marcus and the rest of MKPH would definite love to meet you :)
