#2

Nice to have all this info in one place! Really looking forward to Smash 4, Gundam Versus, and UMvC3. Will probably also check out Melee and casually watch the rest of the Sunday stuff.

MKLeo win Evo pls

also my conspiracy theory for Smash 4 being on Disney XD is that they’re going to announce Smash 4 Switch with Sora from KH as a new character. This is definitely real and definitely happening.


#3

oh fuck they’re running PuyoPuyo Tetris, hell yes. destroy my body with maximum esports


#4

Great write up, thanks for the effort! I am there for Puyo Puyo Tetris and that Dragon Ball Fighters Z preview. Might watch the top 8 of Smash 4 and SFV.


#5

I live in Vegas. I love fighting games. I should really just go.


#6

I’m all in for some KOFXIV and Tekken 7.

Scratch that I’m only here for some good Catherine tournament.


#7

Catherine is the secret hypest tournament at EVO.


#8

Definitely going to leave the Tekken stream up all day today. Very excited.


#9

Tekken 7 is soooo hype. One of the few games I don’t mind watching pools


#10

Dragonball is going to be something special. The fluid of the movement and animation, the ease of supers and tagging in and out, and how fights restart after someone is knocked out just works so damn well together.


#11

Not saying DBFZ is gonna completely eat MvCI’s lunch but…I’m not NOT gonna say it


#12

King of Fighters XIV Top 8. Finals are tonight at 11pm EST.

Winners
Luis Cha (MEX) vs Xiaohai (CHN)
White Ash (UAE) vs ET (TWN)

Losers
M’ (JP) vs TC Pako (MEX)
Reynald (USA) vs ZJZ (TWN)


#13

The Bandai Namco stream definitely convinced me to keep an eye out for DBFZ, I don’t usually buy an ArcSys fighting game outright but I might make the jump this time.

Kinda sad it’s not going to be a sunday final, KOFXIV is very entertaining and deserves a bigger stage.


#14

Catherine tomorrow at 10 am but I don’t know which 10 am. So excited.


#15

Anyone else watching right now? Fab just came back so hard and literally kicked the shit out of gin.


#16

I have KOF Top 8 on with an eye on Tekken right now.

Guilty Gear XRD Revelator 2 Top 8. Finals start at 5pm EST Saturday.

Winners bracket
Nage (Faust) vs. /r/Kappa|T5M7 (Leo)
KVOxTSB|Omito (Johnny) vs. PurePure (Jack-O)

Losers bracket
Teresa (Jam) vs. Samitto (Chipp)
310 (Venom) vs. GGP|Kazunoko (Raven)


#17

I just switched over, Tekken keeps having technical problems or long breaks or some shit, it’s killing the top 32 mood.


#18

Anakin looking hella frazzled, Alisa got so close to taking that round.


#19

My buddy Ak got footage of that Paco KOF finish from the side of the stage


#20

Love me a passionate popoff. Rooting for him, but he has Xiaohai next and that will not be easy.
