    Oh man, it's been years, but I remember following this, back when MvC2 was the big draw. Damn, there was an awesome website which I forget the name of that was frequented by all the top players. Combo videos? Bah, some Japanese name that began with a K, I think. You could get all the info on any cap com/SNK Playmore game there that you could hope for...frames per second analysis, tier ratings, etc.

    On another note, has anyone seen a MvC2 combo video from the late 90's early 2000s that had "beat it" by Michael Jackson as the background track? It was insane and I'de love to find it again. Damn computers and their hard drive failures.

    Wish I had time to follow this myself but I'm sure the best matches will end up on YouTube anyway. Quite interested in street fighter x tekken as I might pick up the vita version.

    MK just started, PL is murdering the entire UK contingent so far. Only player to stand up to him is Mustard's Cyrax.

    SF4 AE has been crazy so far. Plenty of upsets, losers brackets is like a shark pits with all the great players fighting it out there. Dieminion is currently on a killing streak.

    EVO is a fighting game tournament, featuring different games.

    I'm not sure whether they are using PS3s or Xbox 360s, most player are using tournament arcade gamepads anyway.

    I'm pretty sure they're using ps3's because it's easier to swap controllers. Heard that somewhere on Shoryuken.
