Fighting Games

  • Fight for NY has a legit side tournament at CEO each year.

  • CEO 2017 FFNY Side-Tourney made me realized how busted Pockets & David Banner are lol

    The guys that ran it, knew their stuff. As soon as they talked about frame data, I didn't have much of a chance but, went 2-2 so lol. Debating if I should come as a spectator or competitor this year but, be coming again for a 3rd time.

    Sorry I haven't been around here as much. I've just been getting bodied by life but, I'm trying to come back. Also, please announce Sodom for V already; I know Q ain't gonna be in it but, gimme another big body with Abby & Gief. Been 2 months now since Kage has dropped already lol

    They prob need some guaranteed sales for this game. As a combo lovin guy, lucia is quite fun to play many tools.
    Also no mahvel4 announcement :(

    -now watch this thread fade back into obscurity ._.

  • It's still alive.......alive.........alive..........

  • @Sleepychino69 Wait! There's more Evo to talk about.

    Dragonball Fighterz: glad to see Go1 get the Evo win, he seemed pretty pleased. And seeing Sonicfox not win every single thing is always good - no hate, just keeps things fresh.

    Soul Calibur 6: I've never played this game but the ending of grand finals looked ridiculous. Did he turn into a car?!

    BlazBlue Cross Tag Battle: Shinku, you freak. An American takes a BlazBlue game at Evo. And after getting pretty overwhelmed in the first set, he runs it back 3-0 to take it in losers bracket. Pretty damn impressive.

    Street Fighter 5: This was the first year I felt like finals day was wide open in this game. I expected Infexious to take it (and so did Evo organizers, I guess) after he looked so unstoppable on Saturday. It was good to see Bonchan get one after 2014 and it was even better to see him come back from down 2-0 to keep it in winners. Good show to all of the top 8 and especially Bonchan, Infexious, Big Bird and Machabo.

    Tekken 7: The best thing to happen to fighting games in the past year is Arslan Ash. The story of just his journey to Evo Japan is inspiring enough that even if he had gone 0-2 in pools, people would have talked about it. But since he showed up as a pretty much unknown and took out all the best players in the world on his way to becoming champ on no sleep, he became a legend. But that was just a fluke, he got lucky and the Koreans were off their game...except then he also won Evo - IN WINNERS. And he was the one who sent Knee to losers so he beat him twice anyway. Nobody knew who this guy was a year ago and now he's the consensus best Tekken 7 player in the world, so nuts.

    Smash Ultimate: I was done watching here but insane run by MKLeo through losers bracket to run it back and take the whole thing. I did watch a bit of Grand Finals and the last stock of the first game was preeeetty nuts.

    Samurai Shodown: Super cool looking game and comeback mechanics are available to both players at any time, that gets an upvote.

    MK11: didn't catch any of it but good for SonicFox for holding on to the belt.

    UNIST: Missed all of it. Any highlights of this tournament for anybody?

  • SFV was indeed enjoyable. So glad Bon-chan won because I really hate Rashido. His moveset are just insane that he really feels OP. Of course Big Bird played well as him but really. He has speed, aerial with that stupid tornado as a protective that is also great at offensive. That last moment when he did Critical Art and send the tornado afterward made me think in that instant the bracket was gonna reset. That Karin jump kick was clutch. Tekken7 was also great but that came made me bit nauseous. Not used to 3D fighters. Bit of Windjammers was nice but not liking sequel they showed. Catherine Full Body was also amazing. Such a good versus game.
