I understand that everyone has their opinion and fan favorites when it comes to commentary so we tried to get a good list. Considering this is EVO and the broadcast has potential to reach a massive world wide audience, we wanted the stream to have a certain level of professionalism while at the same time keeping that FGC flavor that we are use to on fighting game streams. When choosing these people we looked for people who were presentable, entertaining, knowledgeable with a good “radio voice”.
The idea is also to have either Keits or Ski to be mainstay presenters/commentators so the audience always has a familiar face. We want to reduce the “musical chairs” effect of swapping out commentators constantly. To us these people are familiar but to the uninitiated they could be potentially seeing a new unfamilar face everytime we swap commentators. So the idea is to maybe have a new pair every 2 hours and as you can tell from the schedule, there is 3 days worth of commentating.
I am still in the process of trying to contact a few of these people to confirm if they are indeed going to EVO and willing to commentate. The list is subject to change.
Here are the commentators for the various games in no particular order of precedence:
Super Street Fighter 4
Marvel Vs Capcom 2
Tatsunoko Vs Capcom
Melty Blood AA
I also wanted to get some international commentators in the mix. Anyone know who did the EVO APAC commentary?
