Since there isn't an EVO thread yet, have any goons here gone? Me and 2 friends are heading out there this week for the first time. What should we expect and are there after parties to try and weasel our way into for the free booze?

I am going, i think this is my 5th evo or something stupid.

Evo is a good time, there's a lot to do at the venue itself and also it's Vegas so there's a ton of fun stuff to do in the area in general. In my experience not much free booze or cool parties unless you know people.

I actually made a video a little while ago about how to make your first tournament enjoyable, hope this helps.

This is some really good advice, thanks man and yeah being early 30s goons we plan on trying to see a lot of Vegas and eat at a swanky place or two.

So 13 to start the game off with, and 13 dlc characters??? Goddamn Capcom. So no more X-Men characters at all? That's a shame, guess no return of Deadpool either or a re-imagining of Cable for movie synergy.


NecroMonster posted:

it needs that and rock the dragon. i dunno how it will choose which one to play or where they will get used but i want both.

I WANT BOTH


If you play the game in English it's "Rock the Dragon", any other language it's the original song.

Jeeeeesus H, how does a game like this even enter gold status? It's the worst example of a game made by committee and or time crunch. I wonder the kind of weight a monolith like Disney was swinging around in which characters would be allowed in the game.

Capcom's getting an early start on disappointing people this weekend.

Lol they could see it probably just being full of people wanting to rip them apart about MvCI and wanted none of it.

Also is there going to be an EVO thread this year?
