Bas Gros Poing was launched in 2009 following the launch of Street Fighter 4. Instead of focusing of the game, the goal was to provide new fighting games players with information about previous iterations and explain their stories. Bas Gros Poing was originally a podcast but became a news, opinion and community website in the months following its launch. Before being put to sleep, Bas Gros Poing had more than 1 million viewed pages per month.
Put aside in 2015, Bas Gros Poing is coming back soon with a new visual identity, enhanced versions of the podcasts and articles and a brand new design.
