This has been exciting as hell.
CEO 2013 Preview (June 28 - 30) plus E3 Round-up, new Divekick character, KI is not F2P & FGC News
Wasn't there some thing about Chris G saying he wasn't going to go to Evo because the money wasn't worth it or something? And bitching about PS3?
Bitching about PS3 for sure Ive heard of that but not going to EVO is new to me.
Well there it is Chris G winning both Marvel and Injustice.
I'm glad that Chris G uses Green Arrow since his character choices in his other games are hella annoying (except for 3S since I respect his Sean).
@gaspower: @davidwitten22: Oh right, it was after Chris G was bitching about PS3 lag after losing to SenorTaxi and MrWizard trolled him about it and Chris retorted with a homophobic slur. Then this happened:
"On an episode of eSports talk show Live On Three he said that because he dislikes MrWizard, and because the prize from winning at EVO is too small to make much of a difference in his life, he's considering passing it up."
I'm sure it was all talk. No way he's not going to go.
Since my last post I've
- Finished watching the CEO 2013 archive, it was awesome
- Found a fresh round of gaming journalism vs. FGC/competitive gaming anger on Twitter following Kotaku reporting on Noel Brown being arrested for hitting his ex-girlfriend and other person
Other than how sad I am to see all the staff, stream producers and attendees and their participation in one of the best and certainly most watched non-EVO tournament event of the year (36K viewers), get overshadowed by 1 person getting arrested, I'm super excited for EVO in less than 2 weeks time.
I'll probably put the EVO preview blog up on Monday, if not a little earlier, depending on what is available to report in a week's time it'll probably also have Noel Brown incident fallout round-up and Curleh Mustache: West Coast 2 results, we'll see.
Thanks for reading this and tuning into the event!
That was a fun tournament to watch and while I don't like seeing the screen full of Soulfists there's no denying that Chris G is a great player and deserved that win (still have to watch the Injustice matches where I'm all for him winning with Green Arrow). I'm curious to see how he will do at EVO and if someone manages to deal with all that stuff.
Xian taking SSF4 is really awesome. His Gen is one of the most entertaining characters to watch and his execution is just insane. I tried playing Gen for a while and man, he is not an easy to use character at all but Xian just goes to town with him.
Oh, and one last thing: Fuck Vergil.
So ready for EVO...switched away from dirty DSL, so now I can stream monster SO HARD!
I wanna see Chris take Injustice, Ilove his Green Arrow play and I hope it puts the Scorpion crybabies top sleep finally.
Hope the GB Chat is open again this year, I wanna stream monster with Bombers again this year.
