@Wes899: BBCSEX didn't make the cut, sadly. I think the BB community felt burned out when they released Extend as a separate retail title instead of a patch, and/or maybe the "ANIME GAME" stigma. Hell if I know.

All I care about is Persona 4 Arena.

Amen. I really want to break down another game in video detail, and P4 is really looking sick. Can't wait to dissect it.

So should we make this thread the official EVO thread or should we make a new one?

@MethodMan008: On a related note, I'm going to EVO for the 1st time this year and I am hype as shit! I curious as to what games people are playing if they are going there. I'm playing AE, Mahvel, X Jab, and Soul Calibur.

@JJOR64: I also CAN'T wait until the floe Pregame show. That's probably the only thing he's gonna be somewhat sucessful in. Kappa

Like a separate "official livestream discussion thread?" I've no problem with it.

Yeah, let's do a separate Official stream thread for EVO since this thread is a preview thread for the event.

We now have an Official Livestream Discussion Thread for EVO 2012, before we jump over there tomorrow night for the EVO pre-show, I give you one last look at the best moments from EVO 2011. See you in the discussion thread!

Features 8 year old Noah Solis in 5th place who reached the Top 48 in MvC3. A feat so impressive he not only got covered by Giant Bomb (Meet Noah Solis, the 8-Year-Old Fighting Game Wunderkind ), he also appeared on the second Big Live LIVE Show: Live! with Seth Killian beating up Giant Bomb's interns in UMvC3 (skip to 10:00 for Intern beat-down).

@FLStyle: Kessler goes straight for it after telling Noah he can button check. Goddamn it Kessler.
#65 Posted by FLStyle (4784 posts) -

@Petiew: hahaha yeah what an asshole. The Giant Bomb staffers aren't too familiar with tournament player etiquette because with the exception of maybe Interns Lemon and Ben, they don't watch fighting game events. So to them a button check is probably something they think is done in the menus.

Unless Kessler did it on purpose?!

Great post. Can't wait to see the top chinese kof players vs the socal/mexican scene. Also looking forward to AE and Floe playing IWTBTG too.

#67 Posted by jkuc316 (981 posts) -

@MrVoo: Xiaohai and Dakou don't really take the game seriously, which is a shame. Their KOF fundamentals allowed them to get far, but maybe not very far against BALA, or the other top KOF players in the US(Romance,Reynald, Mr.KOF, The Beast/Chris KOF, Luis-Cha, etc...).

Hope I'm wrong though, and they have practiced the game more.
