I need to start messing around with Spec Ops Cassie some more. I've been sticking mostly with Brawler since I like the Takedown and jump kick into throw but seems like you could do some fun stuff with missiles.

Also I keep waiting for someone to show me something decent with Ancestral Kung Jin but haven't seen it, maybe there were some matches yesterday I missed but every one I've seen has just been getting blown up.

@hassun: Anyone can throw knives, that's not particularly inspiring or difficult and I think everyone was happy to see FChamp eat it afterwards. There wasn't any Bonchan in there or anything, totally unremarkable. Most characters can beat knives, it's not even close to as good as Deathstroke and so forth, I enjoy fighting Kanos personally.

MK would have had like 25-30k viewers if they put it later in the day, pretty bizarre decision making on that front. Game looks real good though, and Jwong wasn't even salty about losing; he'll just convert to Quan Chi-ism. Quan Chi, now there's a good zoner.

Damn a Brutality to win the tournament. Stylin' as fuck.

@hassun: Pretty easy brutality actually, I liked Chris G's reptile after death combo the most.

Oh man, Ogawa just won an Xrd match with 3 perfects. It still feels like the only way for a player from the West to win at Guilty Gear is for no Japanese players show up.

@thunderslash: I think both finalists were testers as well. Definitely the winner.

@hassun: Testers were Wonderchef, REO, Shujinkydink (pretty sure but not positive) and Chris G. Also Arturo and Tom Brady who commentated. Slayer was the young blood Sonic Fox impersonator.

@fredchuckdave: My mistake, I thought Slayer was a tester as well. I did catch that he was only 20 years old though.

"The Strong Strength" of Koji KOG is indeed too strong. Those commentators.

@fredchuckdave: Not 1 but 2 T. Hawks in top 8 really shows that SFIV is still the best.

I fell asleep, did KOG and Native Impact qualify into top 8 already?

@hassun: If Koji wins then I accept your argument, if not it's just there not really being much foreign (or US?) competition there. MKX's top 8 was pretty diverse in terms of characters I thought, though obviously a lot of them were good characters. It's just the fabled EG points gathering event, they simply failed except JWong.

Of course this is kind of funny considering the level of marvel competition there.

Why were you complaining about sleeping earlier? We all know you've never slept in your life.

@fredchuckdave: MKX is brand new though and even then it had 2 repeat characters. Getting Ogawa, Koji KOG and Dogura to an event of this (modest) scale is also impressive. I guess we have to thank NeoGAF for that one. Good selection of games being streamed as well.

As for the hours, I'm not going to make it to USFIV Top 8 this time. Only majors or similarly big/hype events are worth spending the following Monday in zombie mode.

@starvinggamer: Despite the entirely top tierism this has definitely been the most interesting top 8 so far, I guess Marvel was alright though I find it difficult to enjoy marvel that much anymore; EVO might be the last hurrah.

Koji was like "That motherfucker! He went and picked Sagat on me!"

The only way for him to beat Rufus/Justin is to trade blows and hope to win the footsies war that way.

Justin now in 6th place on the CPT with 144 points.
