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!

    How can you be unhyped by AE? More unpredictable than Marvel.

    @jkuc AE is great this year. Looks like a good mix of characters reaching top 32

    With Marvel, not too hyped. Might see similar team compositions over and over.

    @Quash
    Well I did see alot of repeated characters in just top 8. Taskmaster, Nova, Dr.Doom, Hawkeye, Vergil, Wolverine, etc…

    @jkuc Yea Marvel really does have that pool of characters that needs to be in your team to go far. Surprised to see Nova at the finals. Good character but I just crack up always when he says “I got this” when you hard tag him in.

    We also saw a good Modok/Super Skrull/Spencer team. Modok has a lot of potential and is definitely a pain in the ass if played well.
