@ianwexl0rz right. I feel "old man" about it because I do miss the days when games were self contained time capsules on cartridges haha (4 days ago)

@ianwexl0rz I don't like how games change over time now cause of DLC. Getting a different experience based on your funds also feels weird. (4 days ago)

Evo Hype and Sickness

Evo Hype and Sickness

On Monday I returned from the hellish nightmare that is Las Vegas where I was attending EVO, the largest fighting game tournament in the world (I think!) It was pretty crazy as it always is, and I'm totally exhausted from being in Vegas for four straight days.

EVO has an indie games showcase now and my friends at Team Colorblind were demoing Aztez for the EVO crowd once again. The indie game showcase featured a bunch of awesome titles ranging from competitive multiplayer games to single player action beat-em-up combo-centric titles. TowerFall and Samurai Gunn I think were my favorite multiplayer games at the show.

On Saturday night I started to feel a little sick but I fought it off for the rest of the Vegas stay with food and ibuprofen, but on the drive home on Monday I felt pretty sick. Monday night I got hit hard with a fever of 101 and I spent most of yesterday slowly climbing my way out of the depths of the "Evola" virus. There were a handful of people wearing face masks at Evo, so I wonder if they were already sick or were expecting the Evola.

Attending EVO every year is something I really look forward to. I used to just tune in on the live stream, but when I realized that it's not actually that far of a drive to Vegas I made it my mission to be in the EVO crowd every year. It's a totally different experience to be a part of the huge crowd during the finals day, and even just walking around the room during the pools play. I really recommend any fan of fighting games make it out to EVO if they can! It's a pretty awesome experience even as just a spectator.

Since I just got back from the fighting game world championships, I'm itching to play some fighting games again. If you want to throw down at some Super Street Fighter IV Arcade Edition ver. 2012, then add me on Xbox Live kpulv or on GFWL xxerus. It'd be cool to have some people to play with every once and awhile. I played a little bit on MANvsGAME the other night and it was a lot of fun!

Okay I'll get back to making a game now I guess.
