I sat on the couch playing Oxenfree and watching Top 8s all day yesterday. Even though Street Fighter is my favorite game, and Sako my favorite player, I went to bed right before he fought Phenom since it was already like 12am CST. And this freakin tournament was on the east coast!

CEO was awesome, but they really need to work on their scheduling so that the top billed sets aren't happening on a Monday morning.

It looks like Twitch pulled some update/maintence just before an event so you can't watch it bullshit again. Had to do a browser reset to get Twitch streams working.

I wonder if it'll take twenty rounds to beat him.

@hassun: Why Negan? Is TWD even that popular still? What a bizarre choice.

@oodli: As much as I'd rather Kiryu, I will say TWD is much more popular than Yakuza without any evidence to back up my statement.

@ivdamke: I know that TWD is way more recognizable than Yakuza, it's just that I haven't heard anything about the show for over a year. Kiryu just seems like he's made for a fighting game.

You know what, whatever. As long as he plays well and looks cool it doesn't matter.

@oodli: Sega is keeping Kiryu for Virtua Fighter 6 of course. :V

Man, each year after EVO I say to myself that this is the time where I'll get good at fighting games. I just lack a mentor or rival. I need my Goku.
(I'm Vegeta in this metaphore, I know I'll never be the best.)

Is there any communities out there where people can get some coaching and stuff?

Just finished catching up on DBFZ and SFV, FighterZ was amazing and we've got a UK Evo SF champion! I can't believe it.

I very much enjoyed hanging out in the chat for all the other finals, thanks to everyone who stopped by this weekend.

In other news, the DOA community is so butthurt (over not much I might add considering the director said fanservice will still be there) that, outside of the FreeStepDodge forums which seem chill, reading any discussions about that game make me want to die. It's like you can feel the thirst through your monitor reading that shit. Thankfully though, Hitomi and my girl Leifang are being revealed later this month as Gamescom. Hitomi is rockin a gi as usual, but Leifang has what looks like a brand new outfit so that's exciting.

That Negan reveal though was the weirdest, coolest shit though. I don't even care much for TWD anymore really, but T7 is just such a weird ass game tonally and I love it.

Here's the final bracket

Thanks to everyone who participated, I really enjoyed it!
