Did anyone catch Evo over the weekend? Some crazy good players and matches, and even a couple upsets. Each game did a great job representing themselves, and we even got a preview of Marvel vs. Capcom 3. Yeah, Daigo won again, but what about the Zangief and Adon who made top 8? Fun fact, they both had to beat Justin Wong to get there.

EVO was too hype. TvC and MvC3 showing bout made me Lonely Island.

Stream cut out during GFs of SSF4....fail. Good thing they immediately upped it to YT.

Vangief got pushed out of winners by Ricky, and then lost to Infiltration in losers. Vangief put Wong in losers in the semi's, and was finished by gamerbee. They were all really good matches.

Call BS on him. There was no SC4 at Evo. No SC at all actually, which sucks!

There are TONS of side events at EVO mike. I mean they had an Xmen vs Street Fighter major for the past 3 years.

But yeah Justin losing was huge. I did however win a free lunch from my brother cuz he was dumb enough to bet against Daigo winning it.

Nobody else was shocked Tokido didn't make top 8?

Really? My bad. I just started watching EVO this year.

Justin losing was awesome. Not because I had something against him, but because Gamerbee was awesome! There were some awesome games. but at the same time there were some games that were laaaaaaaaame, like Dhalsim vs anyone lol.

I'll be bringing my TE and my XBox if I have to. If I -really- have to I'll bring my monitor. I'm in the process of unlocking colors and garbage for all you lot, be grateful.

I fully intend on beating everyone in this thread up at SSF4, unless you are all crazy good, in which case, I fully intend on pressuring you with smart play but ultimately losing because I don't hit my links consistently.

Just aim me, I am your weapon.

Oh joy, another reason for it to suck that I can't go to Gencon :( Oh well :P

I actually played Justin Wong once at SFIII a couple of years back at a tournament(Just when SF4 had started to hit arcades and the week before Soul Calibur IV was released). He was playing in SF3 and I was playing in Capcom vs. SNK 2, but we saw the prerelease version of Soul Calibur IV and both had a go. We were pretty even (which I'm still proud of now :D), and I asked if he would play with me on SFIII, but I got my ass completely handed to me, which I kinda guessed I would :P He's not the nicest of people though. He seemed ok to start with, but the you could clearly see he was full of himself after a short while.

I don't even own SSF4 yet. I'll get it when they release it for a system I own.

Crossin my fingers for a PSP port...

Jeremy Ray's trash talk technique is incredible. It's like "all of you are bad unless you can beat me. Then it's because I drop combos. Basically all of you are bad or i messed up." Anyways, bring sticks/pads/keyboards/whatever you use to play SF4 to Indy and let's get a date set to game. I have an Xbox SE with sanwa buttons and a PS3 SE with sanwa buttons and a JLF so I can bring either depending on what consoles we have there. Just let me know. It's weird because out of the 14 or so UFS guys we have Atlanta, Sketch, my brother, and I are the only ones who even play fighting games.

@Joe: Yeah i played Justin at a regional in HD Remix and in casuals at Final Round this year. He was very nice and helpful to us. Very chill guy. I think he was just minding his manners because Marn was shooting his mouth off to the ATL Tekken guys and almost got shot lol.

My sim > this thread. My viper....needs work.

I will challenge anyone to a FT5 on PSN. I'll be home tonight ~6pst. A west coast player would be awesome, i get lag with east coast sometimes (i am in CA).

So let's set this up. When are you guys good to play at the con?

Not intending to derail this topic from the... somewhat derail, but does anyone know if there was some UFS action at EVO anywhere? Seems like it would be a fitting game SOMEWHERE there. Totally not the reason to be at EVO but it's almost becoming a Fighting Game Convention of sorts anyways.

I plan on trying to go next year, don't expect to get far but I like to think I have a decent Rog.

This. Though I will admit I suck...pretty bad but I am going to try and practice next week before Gen Con in the hopes of sucking slightly less.

Who has a close hotel room? We're staying about 15 minutes out from the con so if we game at our place then it's probably going to be a drive. And seeing as how the crew im going with plans to be drunk for much of the weekend this might be a problem.

i think our hotel room is like 1km (less than a mile) away, but we have terrible luck with our consoles working on the hotel tv's via aids.

People who play fighting games seriously don't play UFS.

Not disagreeing with you there, but most aren't interested in it to begin with frankly, in my experience.

Add SF and KOF's lack of recent presence, SCIV being a joke, and two original licenses, which makes the only fighting game in the current game with any merit being Tekken, and you have a game that's moving away from being a fighting game experience flavor wise.

Nah i see what youre saying. But Jascogames is making efforts to get back the old licenses. Thing is shady stuff with dealing with FFG and STG in the past has put a sour taste in the mouths of the Capcom and Namco higher ups.
