You can vote for every commentator, but the poll really needed Adam Sessler so that we could choose the correct answer.

real evo starts when you hear 'if you lose you have to suck my dick' from a hotel room, followed three minutes later by slurping sounds

The love cannon has a very short range, about 2 feet, so you're inevitably out of range. I have to close the distance.

I'm ready to listen to Tasty Steve going "Uh, uh.. UGH!" during every combo.

Is 4 hours really necessary for Smash4?
I thought reducing matches to 2 stocks made it much faster?

Don't worry, they will somehow still manage to run late as per usual.

JMCrofts posted this in another thread, but for anyone wondering what The Jump Off is:

https://twitter.com/Sajam/status/885192324120051712

I like Sajam, so the show has the potential to be interesting, but I'm worried it might end up being more of the unremarkable e-sports type commentary that I don't enjoy.

The HnK tournament should be fun to watch if they can get the stream running decently. Kain, who is one of the TOs, is actually really good at that game and plays Raoh so I'm hoping for a lot of cool 1-touch combo kills whenever he's up.

I was in full acceptance of this until realizing that Nidhogg made more money than MKX in the charity vote.

Reminder that this year's EVO is already an unmitigated failure and the whole event can only be saved by dumping the Capcom games and making Sunday Melee Top 16 only.

They only have about a 15 hour block on Sunday--not nearly enough time for Melee Top 16.

I mean sure but what do you do with the other 12 hours of your Sunday after you're done crying into your animu body pillow?
