EVO 2012 - so much hype!

Day 1 of the biggest fighting game tournament of the year has just ended and boy what a day it was. This is my first time watching a full day of an Evo stream and I do not regret the loss of sleep.

The games that ran for day 1 were Super Street Fighter IV Arcade Edition, King of Fighters XIII, Soul Calibur V, and the latest Mortal Kombat game (MK9). I watched a bit of the KoFXIII and SCV streams but mostly viewed the SSF4AE stream. To be honest I was only really hyped up for Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 which will be running on day 2 of EVO 2012 but to my surpise I ended up watching the whole of the SSF4AE pools all the way to the semifinal bracket. Who knew SSF4AE could be so hype? I am personally rooting for Dieminion to take 1st place in the grand finals on day 3.

I need to catch some Z's so that I can stay up to watch the UMvC3 pools and get some gaming done if I wake up a little early.

If you're interested in watching the live stream of EVO, you can view all 3 channels at the same time here http://evo2012.s3.amazonaws.com/live/index.html as well as the schedules for each of the pools and panels.

Man, so much hype on day 1. What more from day 2? IT'S MAHVEL BABY!

EVO 2011 Grand Finals [Update]

I just spent some time watching the grand final matches from this year's Evolution Championship Series. Gamespot uploaded the matches from the latest Mortal Kombat game, Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition, and Tekken 6. The Marvel vs. Capcom 3 grand finals is on youtube but the audio gets f**ked up half way through part 2 of the video which is probably why Gamespot didn't upload it.

Man, watching these matches and some of the semi and quarter finals, it's hard not to just stand up and scream along with the crowd. So much energy from the audience and so many great players gathering together for one of America's top fighting gaming tournaments.

I am in no way good at BlazBlue but I have played it and I do have a general idea on how the game works. I can tell you right now, if I played against these guys I would be destroyed in an instant.
