Dave Lang in the Mystery Tourney right now.
UFGT9 Preview (May 23-26) DIVEKICK comes home! Injustice goes to EVO ahead of Skullgirls and FGC News!
@gaspower: Actually Seth says "What an answer!" ~20x per match when he commentates. I lost it when he said it in-game during the stream. So on the nose.
OH YEAH! Hahaha! I keep forgetting that he does say that a lot when he commentates. Yipes has just been saying that a lot lately so the association I have retained in my mind just goes to him
EDIT: I'll be at the venue in 15 minutes! Dunno who else is going though but if any other duders are going to be there I'll be in a Lincoln FORCE shirt. :D
Have fun! Take some pictures or something? It'd be cool to see what's going on inside off stream.
@churrific: Alright, I actually took most of my pictures with my phone and most of them ended up being super blurry and that made me really, really sad :( Instead I'll just upload the pics I got with the iPod instead. I apologize for the crappy quality ahead of time duders.
Also I didn't remind myself to take a picture, but I was able to finally meet and talk (for awhile too!) to The Lang Zone himself, Dave Lang. It was awesome being able to talk to him about Divekick, the community, his experiences in game development, and a bunch more. I'm not sure if I can share with some info though that he shared in regards to game development and the publishing side in general but I can share a nice trivia that I found out that night. Ari Weintraub aka EG.Fl0e is originally from Chicago and is good friends with Dave and once upon a time he worked with them at Iron Galaxy on Street Fighter 3: Third Strike Online Edition but had to leave prior to release since he was moving out to Los Angeles. I was also able to talk to a bunch of Divekick players during casuals, one of which was Graham, the man who won one of the midwest Divekick tourneys and challenged Dave Lang to a hundred dollar money match during the pre-show. Very cool guy that has deep appreciation for the game and a ton of knowledge and strategies as well. All in all, a great tournament and a great experience for me.
@casper_: I think I saw more than 4 units since I saw 4 units in the area beside the second stage, also during the 2 or 3 o'clock pools, Injustice was also being played on the 2nd big screen stage and there were about two or more consoles near one of the conference hall entrances also playing that game. Perhaps at a later schedule during the day they had to use those other consoles for a different game but there were definitely more than 4 units that i saw where injustice was being played during pools.
I'm stream monstering this at home now since we've got people coming over. Hopefully I can go again tomorrow for the finals but for now I'm just crossing my fingers since I might not be able to make it back in time. It really feels different being there where you really do hear the nasty stuff at times being said from somebody in the crowd. Hahaha!
Hahaha! Those crowdmonster guys from yesterday are still there! :D
EDIT: Woah Latif got sent to losers by Mike Ross and got eliminated by Chris G.... Tsktsk. Now Wolfkrone is also in losers. MAAAAAN....
been out of the house, any other upsets in the last two hours?
@flstyle: CORN | alucarD is the one who put ChrisG into losers, then got walked over by Valle like it was nothing, then took out Air in losers. I don't know if that's an upset, but the way Valle made him look like a fool was really bizarre after his strong showing against ChrisG and his even stronger showing later against Air's Ryu.
EDIT: Also Keits got put into losers in Marvel which wasn't an upset but was certainly upsetting.
EDIT2: IIRC saltybet had the ChrisG match at almost 10:1 in Chris's favor.
@flstyle: I seem to remember AlucarD being the guy who was pulling off upsets. I think he was the one who sent ChrisG to losers and I think Wolfkrone is also in losers but I'm not sure. Mike Ross I think is still in winners. I remember the salty bet amount between Mike Ross v Latif was <5000 for Mike and >then 10,000 for Latif. It was pretty crazy. Mike was making some pretty good decisions and reads in that match.
Spent all day watching SF4 matches on my tv and enjoyed every bit of it. Can't spend the whole day watching tomorrow, but I'm going to try to at least catch the SF and Divekick finals. I really should watch more fighting game tournaments so I can remember who most of these people are.
@flstyle: @starvinggamer: @tycobb: Man I miss all those great matches, I was out of the house and I was able to watch it on mobile momentarily but I was just too busy. Will be catching up on the archives.
Btw, how much did Viscant pay for Shuma? DId he know how to use Shuma?
