Just wanted to quickly say that Evo East was awesome. Tiring, yes. Some drama, yes. Stressful, yes. But there were so many awesome moments that I can’t help but think back on it with great fondness. It was great seeing people I knew that I haven’t seen in a while, re-meeting some people I met last year, and meeting brand new faces. You guys on the East Coast are major hype, and your passion for fighting games is unrivaled. Watching the enthusiasm there always makes me smile.
Just wanted to say that I did not take a ton of photos this year like I did last year. Other people did take some photos and hopefully I’ll get my hands on some of those photos at some point, and I’ll post them up on my Flickr account again. I did take some myself and I’ll put up the photos soon, hopefully.
I did take a lot of camcorder footage, however. But it’s a whole lot of footage (20+ hours worth) and will take me some time to go through. When I get a chance (translation: if I can get off my lazy ass), I’ll start getting out finals match footage.
And lastly, my Hori Stick was stolen from the Guilty Gear qualifiers session (late late late Saturday night). I was wondering if anyone picked it up by mistake. It’s the green stick and green button variety with the square joystick base and the reflective silver top. The six main right-most buttons were replaced with slightly flatter buttons than what they come with. Also, you can recognize it’s my stick because the two middle bolts that are visible from the top of the stick are missing. If anyone picked up my stick by mistake (or for their own use but feel guilty about it), please PM me.
UPDATED: Here are the Photos I took for Evo East. Not very many, and many came out kinda blurry, but enjoy them anyhow:
