Well...we got two of the most "villainous" players in Marvel. I don't even know who to cheer for. 0_o

Flocker proves that his victory at EVO 2013 was bad for the FGC because he is a flash in the pan. If only Justin had got the win instead. Ah well, congrats to Chris G.

Well I wouldn't definitively say that he is just a flash in the pan. He is still IMO the best Zero player and will almost always be in the top 8 of any tourney. Marvel is a complete toss up most of the time and Chris G in the NA scene is the most consistent first placer. Even Xian after winning EVO hasn't been consistently winning tournies. For sure though if Chris went up against Nemo, he would have probably lost against him.

Ah well it was a good run from Yipes. Did himself proud.

Probably going to fall asleep before the end of SF4. My prediction is a Fuudo win.

That's actually kind of a mean way to put it.

Chris G did his thing and won.

And now it's time for the main event! This bracket is so damn stacked.

Sad Xian didn't win. Although, Sako deserved that win.

Yipes is the Player of the Day.

Gen did some dirty things to Makoto.

Sako is amazing.

High level SF4 is still fun to watch. UMvC3 can be as well, depending on the player.

Why do these things always fall on days when I have real-person stuff to do. I had to watch all of SF while driving/at my Beyoncé's work xmas party. Still, shit was hype. Sako is a monster. Also lol trollno doing what he does best. Female and not in a fighting game. Nilin? I have no clue.

Wanted Xian to win but glad Sako took it in the end since I don't really see him come out on top that often and he totally deserved it with the way he played.

Congrats to Sako, didn't see that coming at all! Capcom Cup was a great success I thought.

Meh, his social media game is ass, he's made himself and EVO look weak by losing, he's just not adding anything to the growth of the community. It's that exact reason why he wasn't entered into the Capcom Cup in the first place.

Yeah it looks like this went well, I don't know I don't like fighting games. More importantly, at least for me, I'm going to start advertising these blogs as the official discussion places for these events.

Saying someone makes the community look weak by losing is exactly what I'm talking about. So he won at EVO and lost here? What does that matter? Saying that he's had a negative effect on the community as a whole because of it is nonsensical and exclusionary. "Oh, how dare this guy win at EVO and then fall here. You'd think he was a human being, or something. This fuckstick is an embarrassment to the altar of Daigo. Drive him from our sight!"

Poison is dope in Ultra, really fun. Though she is bit more complex to play than most characters. Bison got some good stuff in this location test too.

Running Bison/Poison for sure, June is a long ways away though. Don't know if I can go back to 2012 after tasting that sweet Ultra nectar.

What I'm saying is only from the singular perspective of getting the FGC into League of Legends stream numbers and beyond, I'm not implying that he should be unbeatable.

Did you use dual Ultras at all? How much weaker did each of them seem in comparison to U1 and U2 separately?

Yeah I used dual with Poison, it was a pretty significant loss of damage. However having a command grab ultra as well as one I could combo into was pretty nice.

Went to Capcom Cup. Was pretty fun to watch the match up close although I fell asleep a couple of times due to lack of sleep. Ultra Street Fighter IV test fun to play but due to the laggy monitor, it felt hard to really test any necessary changes. I did try Yang's crossup which was awesome. Oh yeah photo with Ono...

No Caption Provided

Last thing, there was a guy who was wearing a Giant Bomb hoodie at Capcom Cup. Hit me up! We should do stuff!

That was me in the hoodie lol. We should play online sometime, but not gonna lie I'm gonna be playing Guilty Gear +R mostly until Ultra comes out.

Can't go back to a dead game when I know the new stuff is coming.

I have been learning GG recently so we should play that too. If you have XBL, I am The Phantomnaut on it. I would like to play locally but I am at Sacramento. Sorry if I didn't talk much at Capcom Cup, I was very sleepy that day hence why I sat down and slept while in line for Ultra. :P

@flstyle: Well they did stop it and I think it was because Steve and Mike we're mostly busy doing other stuff so it was hard for them to do it on a regular basis.
