MvC3 @ EVO: Fighting game legend Daigo is coming for you.

#1 Edited by FLStyle (4665 posts) -

You've been warned.
  

  
With so much emphasis on MK lately a lot of players like Justin Wong haven't been putting much practice into the Capcom games. It's the perfect time for Daigo to swoop in and take the prizes and places at EVO. Now that the MK Nationals are over it's up to America's finest to get practising before they all get blown up.

This is looking like one of the more exciting EVOs, can't wait.
  
Oh hi, I'm Daigo and all your moneys belong to me.

Glad to see Daigo picking up MvC 3.  I really hope I don't work that much that weekend.

I love Diago so much. I've never been more excited about a video game then when I saw the full parry video for the first time.

大吾の伝説を続く。。

Truly one of the gods of professional gaming.

If there was ever a pantheon of pro-gamer Elder Gods, he would be the fighting game Elder God.
Fatal1ty would be the FPS Elder God. The RTS Elder God would be a seat of contention for sure.

In fairness he won't have much else to go on at this stage, MvC3 players in Japan must be few and far between unless he's got some friends learning the game with him.

Daigo playing MVC3?? Seriously?? FUCK YES.


I mean, from what little I know of the fighting scene, it seems like MvC3 would not be Daigo's game at all, so I wouldn't be surprised if he does pretty poorly, but still... TOTALLY HYPED FOR EVO NOW.

Also: Yay for She-Hulk love.

Wait, are you implying that Diago Umehara is good at fighting games? I had no idea. In any case, should be interesting to see him play Marvel vs Capcom 3. Heck, I bet he'd be awesome at Mortal Kombat if that game meant anything in Japan.

Well I hope he pwns that chubby fruit Wong.

You hosted a tournament on here where Sentinel was banned right?

That's you?

As long as he beat Justin Wong, then I'm all for him going to MVC3. But seriously, he needs to stay away from MK, I'd like to know I still have a chance, however fantastical that sounds.

This is the first I have seen or heard of this daigo character and he is quite literally the most intimidating person in the world.

I'd love for Daigo to win MVC3 at Evo, but it's for sure not happening. Rootin' for the underdog though, what a good sport that Daigo fella is!

@FLStyle: You do know that Daigo didn't win 3rd Strike at Evo 2004, right? KO won that year. It's weird because people generally assume he won after seeing the full parry video.

He didn't even win some of the other years too. If it was Kuroda... :)

@lordofultima: Video is for hype purposes only for anyone who might of forgotten or don't recognise him. Thanks for the info though, I did indeed assume he won.

I think I'll go play the game in some hotel room with the other scrubs :p

I hope Diago doesn't get blown up round one.

He has played stuff other than SF if anyone is wondering about making the transition to MVC3.

"Hopefully your 10 years of MVC2 experience with brand newcomers challenges will make for an interesting match"


Wut? That sentence is more broken than Sentinel pre-patch!

But this promises to be interesting. Just curious, has anyone been a triple champion?
