Evo 2011 Fighting Game Tournament: Quick Highlights
The Evo 2011 fighting game tournament has come to an end. There were many shocking upsets, amazing comebacks and fighting game specific banter that kept me thoroughly entertained until 6am GMT. For those fans on the other side of the world that decided sleep was more important, here are a selection of videos for you.
Super Streetfighter 4 Arcade Edition: Diago vs Poongko.
Poongko completely dominating Diago’s Yun. Maybe Diago should just suck it up and revert back to his trusty Ryu.
Marvel vs Capcom 3: Kang vs Noah
You gotta feel for Kang in this video. His opponent is an 8yr old kid, an 8yr old who just happens to be awesome at MvC3. And lol at the comment this kid is so young he just spent 4% of his life playing that match.
Brilliant video chronicling the story of streetfighters Bison/Balrog… Boxer
Mortal Kombat 9: Grand Final
Since I know ‘some’ people like this game… I’m sure there are a handful of them somewhere. Here is the Mortal Kombat 9 final.
I noticed a distinct lack of characters who I would have assumed to be great for top level play. Kitana, Mileena, Kung Lao, Liu Kang and Johnny Cage seemed to be the standard choice.
Tekken 6: Grand Final
Is Tekken even relevant anymore. Dull gameplay. Terrible graphics. Just look at the scenery rotating poorly. Check 7:25 and watch the fight. The middle distance seems to float above the rest of the world. Worse of all is the seemingly bad character balance since everyone chose either Marshall Law or Bob.
