You may or may not be surprised about how many of my friends are posting about their new Evo phones and confusing the shit out of me.

Here I am thinking a CA fighting game tournament is way more popular than I thought it was!!

If I was still with Telus and not unemployeed, I would've been down at Evo. Cause it has fucking Melty.

T_T Sadly, it is not meant to be.

I'm not big on watching other people play but I would love to go just to experience the actual event.

There's a small clip of Dante vs Deadpool in the newest MvC3 trailer. :)

MvC3 is looking pretty great.

Voice acting (aside from Deadpool, who not only sounds appropriate but has some great lines) needs some work though.

Dante looks insane, but Deadpool may win Fighting Game Character of the Year if there is such a catagory.  Him yelling at the player at the end of the match is only topped by yelling "BANGBANGBANGBANG!!" thorughout his special.  Redfield was kinda generic although I did like him working up through his weapons for his special ending with the rocket launcher, and I liked Cap's Stars and Stripes.

According to GameInformer, one of Deadpool's specials is that he beats his opponent with his (Deadpool's) lifebar.  This I must see.

So I've gotten back into playing SSF4 online and can see that the time I spent away has really killed my skills (not that I had many to begin with mind you). Still see a lot of Shoto's and got completely jailhouse raped by Dan earlier in one of the online tournaments.

I know Thoth still plays but I'd like to get a few more matches back under my belt before I get killed by his Vega or Adon.

Evo was supposed to have started by now, but apparently things have gotten delayed because Obama is in town and his motorcade is preventing a lot of people from getting to the convention center. Hah.

Watching the pool play now. I watched some TvC, and it looks like Zero is so far ahead of everyone in that game, I don't ever feel like playing it online again.

So after talking with a friend / customer for the past month about it, I've decided I'm going to go to EVO next year. No doubt I'll get raped but I figure the experience in just going will be second to none. I'm talking a few friends in going out but maybe we could also get a few TRTSMers to go as well...?

I'd really, really like to go next year. We'll see what happens.

I was out for most of the night but caught a little bit of the action just now and earlier in the evening. TvC is pretty cool to watch but I know so little about it that I don't feel that I can truly appreciate what's going on. I suspect the same thing'll happen when I try to watch the Melty Blood competition later on. SSF4 competition has been really good so far - hopefully the lagginess the stream was suffering from earlier in the day will be gone by Sunday 'cause I don't want to imagine what'll happen when 30,000 people crash the servers trying to watch the finals.

I'd like to go next year, but my money situation isn't going to change likely. I'd really like to play in the Melty Blood tourney, because that's the only game in which I'm really good at.

The best part is that for the longest time, it was an urban legend that Gootecks once threw his stick in a fit of rage (later proved to be false). So his disciple keeps the dream alive.

I think Scumbag is actually local to my area. I'm pretty sure I'm capable of handing him his ass (Hell, I'm undefeated against Gootecks). I want to see him throw another stick.

Justin Wong was just eliminated from the SSF4 tournament by a Taiwanese Adon player named Gamerbee. I was hoping that there'd be a different matchup in the finals but never did I expect that Wong would fail to make the top eight. Unreal.

He look shook as fuck in the opening round. Throwing out ultra's like it was nothing..2nd set he seemed to get his composure back and lock down Bee but that third and final set, he seemed to just not know what to do.

Mike Ross V Daigo should be a good match..and I can only think that somewhere, fuckin Triforce is laughin his ass off at Justin right now.

I've basically missed all three days of this thing. Which is my fault, admittedly, but not enough people are uploading matches to YouTube, either. Zero TvC there until today, for instance.

I know they don't care about games anymore, but why G4 doesn't air it, I don't know. It's easy programming. More room for Cheaters I guess. Or if there were match archives or stream replays on the EVO site or something.

Uhm, they've been streaming it at eventhubs.com for the entire weekend. The stuff isn't getting put on YouTube due to LevelUp taking things down for copyright infringement.

Ironman's Lvl 3 combo looked really fuckin awesome (did 70 hits).

G4 will be showing something in like, a week or two and there's talk on the SRK forums of trying to get a DVD put together.

I'm a fan of Adam Sessler but there is no reason he should be commenting on the SSF4 finals. Guy doesn't seem like he knows anything about the game beyond the basics.

I'd rather have Keits or someone else on the mic.

Even though the matches have been very good this commentary is fucking killing whatever excitement they might hold. As mentioned, Sessler doesn't know what the fuck he's talking about and Killian, while technically knowledgeable, is describing the action with all the passion of a sedated insurance adjuster.

After watching the stream, Adam Sessler doing commentary last night was akin to that SNL skit. At one point I seriously thought Adam would say: "THAT'LL MOVE THE CHAINS!!" or even drop in a "..and boom goes the dynamite.."
