Evo was pretty hype.  SSF4 was so ridiculously huge, 1700 people, Ceasar's ballroom was enormous and you could still barely move during SSF4 pools.  Each pool had 90 people, most entire tournaments don't have that many.  Tekken felt like it had about 250 people and was just tiny by comparison.  I went a DQ assisted 4-2 in SSF4 and an embarrassing 0-2 in Tekken, lost to two Eddies, I'm so bad against him.  Definitely was not expecting to do better in Street Fighter than Tekken, shrug.

SSF4 finals were hype but not as hype as last year.  I like upsets, but I was a little disappointed not to see Justin make the finals just because it feels like he's the only American who can play a decent match against Daigo.  Ricky did pretty well, but you could tell he was a little bit outclassed.

Yay Kayane!  Old school Calibur represent~!  Not only did she dominate the women's tourney, but she almost made it out of pools, which given the field is pretty impressive.

I'll definitely be there again next year, would be awesome to get some games in against TSM people.

Quote
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.

It's hard to think that the Powerglove-wearing clown is laughing too much given that Justin won Marvel, Marn won TvC, and Ricky finished 2nd at Super.  I'm not up on all the Empire/EG drama, but that's not exactly a bad showing by EG.

Ricky was his own worst enemy. He won what, that first round or two against Daigo then got out of his chair and fist-pumped like he won the whole thing? Yeah...that's what killed him. It felt he did better against Daigo when he first fought him in winner's bracket than he did in the Grand Finals.

The Triforce comment was also Saturday night, before JW, Marn (who I found out is originally from Texas, if not Houston) and Ricky did what they did.

It seems that next year I'll be going. I need to start putting a bit aside each check so I can have a decent sized fund for rooms and what-not. Cost for the rooms shouldn't be too high as I'd be going with like six or seven other people.

I wanted to go so badly this year because Melty was the only game I had a chance of signing up for a tournament and making a decent showing. I'd still go now, but damn. I wanted to play in the Melty tournament. I would've loved to try out the three different Ciel's.

I'm so glad Melty had such a wonderful tournament. Its kinda sad the announcers had to explain all the technicalities of Melty Blood, because sometimes it distracted from the viewing of the videos, but it was wonderful seeing it do so well. While the designs are sort of plain and simple (thanks Type-Moon~!), the game itself is definitely not and this tournament showed it. Sucks though that we had a same character final, because I think it would've had even more of a following with two different characters duking it out in the finals.

I also went to go see somethings about BBCS and got spoiled on the storyline and just well, my mind is blown on everything if what I read is true.

If Melty is still a tourney next year, I'll definitely be checking out Evo next year, should I obtain some money to do so.

I don't think Melty will make it for next year. I mean, there's already talk of both TvC and MvC2 being bounced due to MvC 3 coming in. So there's Super Street, MvC3, Tekken 6, probably an HDR tourny and it'd leave like one more. If BBCS takes hold, you figure that'll make five with the possibility of a sixth. That's of course if there isn't another women's invite for Super Street..if it comes down to fans, I just don't know if Melty would win out over MvC2 or another more "established" game.

I'll be surprised if BBCS makes it next year though, as you said, there's a ton of games coming out.

Two games.

Two fucking games running the same fucking characters.

Two god damned mother fucking games running the same Jesus H. Tap-Dancing Christ characters, but using opposite engines.

Obv. I'd be buying CapcomXNamco

So we're not getting the RPG that was convoluted as hell, but a totally new fighter and two games running two different engines?

Please tell me Capcom vs. Namco is the Capcom version, I'll be getting that one.

Per the Kotaku article,

CAPCOMxNamco will be the Ono produced game with SF4 graphics and 2d play.

NAMCOxCapcom will be the Harada produced game with Tekken6 graphics and 3d play.

Can they please just let Capcom handle the online modes? Please?

Otherwise, interesting.  I wonder if they'll have exactly the same roster? Yeah, that'd be confusing...

Um...the past two Marvel vs. Capcom games had the original Megaman in it.

As for evil robot...since Super Skrull is in and that means we won't be getting The Thing...something to combat The Hulk:

I meant the lame ass Mega Man Volnutt character that was in TvC.

Anyway, if Mega Man makes it into this one they should render him so that he looks like the 8-bit NES version.

So he'd be the MvC version of Mr. Game and Watch then?

EDIT: Also, you'd be surprised how many fans of Mega Man Legends there are out there.

Though most of that probably is to Tron Bonne.

Amaterasu?! That's going to be awesome! Great choice with that one, Capcom!!

I'm glad for Thor, too, as I believe this is his first vs fighter appearance, that I can recall anyway. I am still crossing my fingers for Cable and War Machine, though. Cable, especially, so I can team him up with Deadpool. ;)

Just checked out the new Thor and Ami trailer that was revealed at Comic-Con and while Thor looks good, my God does Ami look broken. I mean, able to change weapons on the fly, spammable paint balls both ground and towards the air, and also two really bad ass hypers, I think she's going to be the one we'll see constantly on online play.

Also, I would say that as soon as I get a release date for this game, I'm buying it. Its just that awesome.

So I managed to pick up BlazBlue: CS (thank God for trade ins) and I finally have gone about learning how to play fighters.

...no, I don't mean that I didn't know before, I just mean that I spent 3 hours constantly programming a character's BnB into my fingers. Sadly, I still whiff on occasion during the middle and I never can land the very last move, but I've mostly got it down. I just need to purchase a better d-pad or something because a PS3 controller is just too small for trying to pull off moves successfully.

Currently using Noel and Tsubaki for those wondering.

I beat her without even trying at the last tournament I was at. My girlfriend was there, and I turned my head from time to time to talk to her. No one in the SoCal tournament scene even likes her, but she dates Mike Ross, so I guess we have to put up with her.

Apparently Litchi is S-Tier in BlazBlue CS. I noticed she has some new ground attacks, and new links, but I'm mostly glad my choice of main in a fighting game is good on paper, for once. I got saxrolled by someone who REALLY knew their Litchi, though.

Sorta wish more in the game felt "new". Also, the underage Mu-12 in the metal thong right on the disc... wow.
