I haven’t been watching this year’s EVO 2K fighting game tournament at Las Vegas. Some of it is due to lack of interest to watch a stream all weekend, but it’s also because I find the fighting game community a bit of an embarrassment to watch.
The heavy use of lingo and lack of professionalism throughout makes the entire production a constant hit or miss. And with so very little bandwidth to spare for the remainder of this billing cycle, I can’t afford to waste it on cringe worthy streams.
Fortunately, the pros and quality commentating come out during the finals and that’s what I’ll be watching starting with the Mortal Kombat finals at 2 PM PST.
In the meantime, I’ve been watching highlights including the follow gems:
Great Match: Alex Valle (Ryu) vs Daigo Umehara (Yun) in Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition
Upset: Justin Wong (Rufus) vs Latif (C. Viper) in Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition
Epic Comeback: Justin Wong vs Richard Nguyen in Marvel vs Capcom 3
