I am going to Evolution 2K9 in Las Vegas.
It cost me way too much, I plan to recoup the money lost by betting on Justin Wong and heartnana in everything they play.
Speaking of heartnana I convinced him to go to one of the Kansai area IaMP tournaments for fun, I hope he enjoys this one and goes to more of them, as Kansai actually has a shitload of IaMP tournaments.
This Saturday I went down to the city for the first time in a long while.
Blitzkampf tournament, twas awesome, I forgot how much fun it was to hang out with NYC crew.
Rithli probably got tons of lolfootage to make really hype videos for a group of dorks by a Snapple machine (well actually we had use of the actual gazebo this time.)
I've never seen jiyuna so gone, usually he plays better when he's drunk but he was completely off in moonland by mid tournament.
Like he lost to zaelar and kept falling off his crate it was quite hilarious.
Oh yeah I got 4th, relatively easy bracket, rithli and zar were on the other side.
Went through nas Fritz (last round last match), legendary blue shirt Kanae(last round last match but I fucked up second match he should have never seen a third), lost to Ken Akatsuki in top 4 winners, beat chibi Adler/Nun (I was actually happy he switched to nun, I hate adler), lost to Rithli Adler (I took a match off his Adler though, I think that was the first time I ever did.)
So not bad for someone who plays this game...not so often.
Lastly this game is hilarious, Konami going back to its Tokimeki Memorial roots.
They had all three voice actors say something like 9000 names too so there's a high chance if you're Japanese she will say your name.
