EVO lineup announced


#1

for those of you who never venture outside the NW forum: http://forums.shoryuken.com/showthread.php?t=174535

shit, a 2v2 tournament might actually make third strike exciting (maybe?)


#2

That’s kinda weird about the tvc part. I wonder how those invitations work.


#3

HDR and SFIV will be on PS3? Aww man. =\


#4

Yeah, no more Chun-tastic top 64. So if I go (not likely but speaking hypothetically) I’ll take Chun. Who will take Yun and pair up with me?

I think Wizard had made that clear since last summer. The EVO organization owns a fleet of PS3 consoles since they ran T5:DR and VF5 tournaments in the past. So this is a matter of cost and convenience. Tis a shame considering many hardcore gamers own a 360 but not a PS3.

I think it’s interesting how MvC2 is listed as “Console: TBA” in its section.


#5

If there are discrepancies between the ps3 and 360 version of SFIV, I’d be happy to bring my ps3 to Zach’s if its needed.


#6

wow, take out cvs2 and tekken and reput in GG and a SC4 which is broken as all hell and NO ONE plays it… what a waste.


#7

My main concern is which stick to bring. I agree with Jetay, SCIV is questionable. Maybe they know something we do not.


#8

I’m only surprised they chose GG over Blazblue, especially since they only went for SC4 because its the NEWest namco game we have.


#9

Is BB even out on console? GG is always a good draw.

EDITO

I just love that smash is nowhere to be seen, that is gross.


#10

No Tekken makes me sad. But alas, the lineup has great variety.


#11

oops, forgot tvc isn’t officially here either yet


#12

3rd Strike refuses to die.


#13

Yes, he did survive getting crushed in a garbage truck.


#14

At least you know BR is coming out and we will be at the next EVO.

Cool to see GG there, maybe I should drop HDR and practice that along with IV.

Hope people from VFDC show up.

Glad Smash got dropped, fuck that game 1000x over.


#15

Was it last year or the year before when they had MarioKart DS in the lineup?

Lol. I love me some MraioKart, don’t get me wrong.

But at Evo? 8/
