Τι συνέβη στο CounterHit?

Στο προηγούμενο επεισόδιο του “CounterHit – Δημιουργώντας μια ελληνική fighting game σκηνή”:

Πριν από περίπου 1 χρόνο, το CounterHit ξεκίνησε με εμένα να προσπαθώ να μάθω ό,τι χρειαζόμουν σε σχέση με τη δημιουργία ενός site και forums που θα περιείχαν όλες τις βασικές πληροφορίες που θα χρειαζόταν κανείς για να παίξει τα γνωστά fighting games και εν συνεχεία να ρωτάω διάφορους φίλους ένα κάρο τεχνικές ερωτήσεις για να μπορέσω να ξεπεράσω τα προβλήματα που εμφανιζόντουσαν καθημερινά.
