UPDATED: EVO 2012 tournament
UPDATED: “What is LOVE? LOVE is EVO after you hold that L and run it back” – Zhi. If you missed out on the EVO 2012 finals, I feel bad for you son. Don’t fret. Below I’ve added all the grand final matches for Soul Cailber V, Mortal Kombat, King of Fighters XIII, Street Fighter X Tekken, Super Street Fighter IV: AE 2012, and Ultimate Marvel VS Capcom 3. If you like, check out the FGC2012 youtube channel for the full tournament. If you don’t have the time for 30 minute matches, skip ahead torwards the end or search for the IGN abridged versions. BUT I strongly suggest that you watch the full KOFXII and UMVC3 grand finals for the most intense matches I’ve ever seen. Check out shoryuken.com to see the full results and double check if you won in your fantasy fighting game league.
