IAmMassive said on January 8, 2013 at 7:31 p.m.

Surprised to see MK9 over KOF, that's unfortunate.

#4
jhayze said on January 8, 2013 at 7:32 p.m.

MK9 really, that game and crowd on last evo was like a dead horse, KOF got more hype on both game and crowd compare to that sh*tty game!

#5
No_Surrender said on January 8, 2013 at 7:33 p.m.

I'm happy. AE and KOF is all I needed with a lil UMVC3.

So Persona is fighting game of the year yet dead in the usa lol.

#9
xBMxSage said on January 8, 2013 at 7:37 p.m.

Is MK9 really still played at all? All the other games make sense though.

#10
TODAKAI507 said on January 8, 2013 at 7:38 p.m.

kof is lower cuase to many peopple stoped playing kof even madkof sais he would retire since no one play kof in korea, not saying the game is bad i love the game too but thats the truth

#11
RiyuRimururu said on January 8, 2013 at 7:39 p.m.

can't wait to look forward watching AE2012, KOF and UMVC3.

oh wow p4a too? Gotta start grinding that game again

#17
TheCreator said on January 8, 2013 at 7:44 p.m.

So...... no Melee? Lame.

#18
ihog said on January 8, 2013 at 7:46 p.m.

I'd rather see Skullgirls than Mortal Kombat really...

#19
Smorgasboard said on January 8, 2013 at 7:48 p.m.

Sorry, everyone who tried to kill it, SFxT is not dead.

#20
DevilMaySpy said on January 8, 2013 at 7:48 p.m.

Add "Players' Choice" Flip!

@ BMSage: MK is alive and well. They have a very active community on www.TestYourMight.com

You don't see it on main streams much because they have their own channels.

#21
okay said on January 8, 2013 at 7:49 p.m.

EVO is trying to avoid Melee by not honoring the Facebook poll.

#22
NoizyChild said on January 8, 2013 at 7:50 p.m.

Why in the hell would they ban gems in SFxT?

EDIT: I see where they're coming from. It would slow down the tournament.

#23
GakoTheChef said on January 8, 2013 at 7:50 p.m.

SFXT 2013! I CANT CONTROL IT! Kreygasm

#24
DivinePhoenix69 said on January 8, 2013 at 7:51 p.m.

Glad to see P4A make it into EVO,it really deserved it aswell as KOF and Tekken:D. Everything else was to be expected. Hoping for Melee to be make it as the player's choice, CvS2 aswell.

I don't think that poll was legit at all. Way to many ways to make multiple accounts and boost a certain game. I'm not saying that this could happen in the donation drive, but the chances are unlikely

#27
Aluppoj said on January 8, 2013 at 7:53 p.m.

All games look great. Glad SFxT is returning.

MK9 makes no sence to me. Dead game is dead.

I was very interested in KOF13, but I was my understanding that the online was unplayable. Any opinions on this?

Truly hope the fan poll results in 3S!

#28
hazelnut1112 said on January 8, 2013 at 7:55 p.m.

After the blunder they are still allowing SFxT?
Come on, there are better games that deserve that spot than that crap. It wasn't received well and yet they still kept it.

#29
NoizyChild said on January 8, 2013 at 7:57 p.m.

#31

I kinda expected to see Injustice before MK9, seeing as how the latter game is pretty much dead.

#32

Like what? Please don't say Skullgirls or VF, you'll only be setting yourself up for failure.

iMTopTier said on January 8, 2013 at 7:59 p.m.

MK was boring as f
P4A is garbage
and i hope UMvC3 is better than last year and if Chris G gets eliminated before top 16 better

#32
Oniros said on January 8, 2013 at 8:01 p.m.

F*** yeah P4A! Incoming buckets of money from my part to get GGXXACP+R on this EVO.

#33
shades_of_grey said on January 8, 2013 at 8:02 p.m.

Glad to see all of my personal favorites, AE, UMvC3, SFxT, MK9 and TTT2. Was a little worried about SFxT with all the sh!t surrounding that title.

#34
Smorgasboard said on January 8, 2013 at 8:04 p.m.

lets see if smash gets first again and if evo will actually put it in and if they will allow items but ban gems.

Swafflong said on January 8, 2013 at 8:06 p.m.

Vote all stars for evo 2012 everybody! And yeah, MK9 getting in this lineup is an unpleasant surprise.

#37
NoizyChild said on January 8, 2013 at 8:06 p.m.

#39

From what I've heard, it's 1v1, no gems.

#38
dro2191 said on January 8, 2013 at 8:11 p.m.

TT2, SFXT, SFAE, is all i need, and i guess ill watch marvel until combofiend, chris g, and juston Wong tong gets eliminated.

#39
SgtKonus said on January 8, 2013 at 8:12 p.m.

MK9 is much more alive than SFXT or KOF to be honest. I know this and I don't play the game.

#40
uguumachine said on January 8, 2013 at 8:12 p.m.

I hope KoF13 finals are on friday.

#41
Model_M said on January 8, 2013 at 8:14 p.m.

@44 Nah man, that sh*t should be on Sunday with the big boys ;)

#42
Adelflame said on January 8, 2013 at 8:15 p.m.

Whats the deal with mk9? The game aint hype, the game aint fun to watch, The game hasnt get a MEANINGFUL update since a year or something theres nothing new on it, there a tons of new fighting games that deserve a chance better than MK9

#43
ShinzoBishamon said on January 8, 2013 at 8:15 p.m.

@31 don't let the online deter you from playing KOF XIII, its an amazing game

#44
Xykes said on January 8, 2013 at 8:17 p.m.

Oh, SFxT is in...I guess I have a reason to go to EVO this year after all.

#45
Swafflong said on January 8, 2013 at 8:17 p.m.

@20 poll up for the last game, melee could (and hopefully will) make the cut.

#46
Ermapume said on January 8, 2013 at 8:18 p.m.

Maybe Blazblue or Melee will make it by player's choice. I can't wait see what is picked.

#47
Izick said on January 8, 2013 at 8:19 p.m.

I'm Happy SFXT, KOF, are in there. SFXT 2013 is The most strategic fighting game out there. WE IN THERE! #XTDefenseforce

#48
SqueakyBloom said on January 8, 2013 at 8:20 p.m.

Surprised Persona 4 Arena is there, good game nonetheless. Tekken Tag Tournament 2 makes me cringe at how boring past Tekken finals have been, but i'll give it another chance. Sad DoA5 didnt make it since it would allow not just DoA players join but some VF5 players as well. Here's me hoping to Injustice or DoA5

#49
Dragonite said on January 8, 2013 at 8:20 p.m.

@32- Because it's v2013, not vanilla. D!psh!t.

#50
Astro_Notch said on January 8, 2013 at 8:22 p.m.

Nice line-up. This year will be HYPE! All the SFxT haters are just gonna have to hold ALL of that salt!

#51
JesseRobles said on January 8, 2013 at 8:22 p.m.

Love it! I hope DoA5 makes it, too. :)
Sucks that they won't allow gems in SFxT, is like they don't get that the game SHOULD be played with them. Just limit them to the most basic ones and that's it.

#52
No_Surrender said on January 8, 2013 at 8:29 p.m.

After watching SFxT on the SF 25th Anniversary tournament, I'm pretty excited to see what's in store for the game at this years EVO.

#53
SJ said on January 8, 2013 at 8:30 p.m.

Honestly this is a perfect list.

You have your main Capcom games - AE, Marvel, SFXT
You have your 3D fighter - Tekken
You have your Anime game - Persona
You have your non-Capcom 2D fighters - KOF, MK

Something for everyone

#54
godfist314 said on January 8, 2013 at 8:31 p.m.

Wizard said that the status on gems in SFxT *has not* been decided. Check the stream archive.

#55
NoizyChild said on January 8, 2013 at 8:32 p.m.

#47

Considering that hardly anyone outside of Korea or Japan plays KOF, yeah, he should let the horrendous online deter him.

#56
SmokeyMTL said on January 8, 2013 at 8:33 p.m.

Persona sucks

#57
H_Lightning said on January 8, 2013 at 8:33 p.m.

KoF and P4? Awesome! Hope Kof is as hype as last year. Looking forward to some memorable moments from P4.
Can't wait to see SFxT v2013 in a tourney setting.

#58
Rei said on January 8, 2013 at 8:34 p.m.

Looking forward to KOF! Hope more Japanese players show up this time.

#59
yes4me said on January 8, 2013 at 8:36 p.m.

Personally, I like to watch:
1. Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3
2. Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition v2012
3. Tekken Tag Tournament 2
5. Street Fighter X Tekken v2013 (just out of curiosity)
6. King of Fighters 13

I wish the last game to be in order of preference:
- DoA4
- Soul Calibur4
- GGXX/Blazeblue

PS: I will not watch any other game.

#60
SpinningBirdKick said on January 8, 2013 at 8:37 p.m.

MK9 is horrible-- no updates, boring gameplay, boring players. At least a DOA5 showing would've shown something new, and at the very least bring in new meat to take the stage. Sick of seeing the same old faces winning DOA tourneys because they're the only ones who travel and play in that small clique of theirs.

#61
icejohn said on January 8, 2013 at 8:37 p.m.

"MK is garbage,it'll never be at evo again!"
Three years later...lol

Anyway, this line up looks pretty nice.Looks like their something for everybody.Im a little surprised SC didn't make the cut over a certain other game that i think shouldn't have been there, but thats their choice and good for them.Crossing my fingers DOA will take the 8th spot, but no big deal if doesn't thanks to IPL, so good luck to other candidates.

Well time to step up my P4A and TT2 game. :D

#62
Model_M said on January 8, 2013 at 8:42 p.m.

KOFXIII was a deal breaker for me, so I'm glad it was chosen!

#63
MaverickHunterX said on January 8, 2013 at 8:42 p.m.

Hopefully we get to see more bear action. XD

#64
Aluppoj said on January 8, 2013 at 8:45 p.m.

@59

That's kinda my thoughts. I love the animation. And story would be fun for a hot minute.... But if the game has no online community that kills it for me.

Online is the fighting games replayablity!

But man, I absolutely love Terry, Ryo, Takuma and Clark! Oh, and Mai:)

Who's the commentator who does the Arnold impressions when Clark slams ppl? That Sh!t is so Freaking GDLK! I lol'd so hard!

#65
ShinzoBishamon said on January 8, 2013 at 8:45 p.m.

@59 lol, there are plenty of players in the states, wouldn't be at evo or one of the most requested games if it had hardly any players.

#66
Aluppoj said on January 8, 2013 at 8:50 p.m.

@69

Yeah maybe, but I don't live near a local KOF scene ya know what I mean? So I'd need the online.

#67
Undead_Hayabusa said on January 8, 2013 at 8:51 p.m.

So what is this Player choice noise about?

#68
FullAnime said on January 8, 2013 at 8:52 p.m.

KOFXIII AE2012 UMC3 P4:A well of course those games would make the list all good games. Need More Guilty Gear, Third Strike, Skull girls, & Dead Or Alive, & Melee. I just feel like EVO needs more games. For everyone to play.

ShinzoBishamon said on January 8, 2013 at 8:55 p.m.

@70 yeah i understand you, online is always a factor especially since you need experience to be good at the game, but you gotta remember in KOF XIII you gotta spend a ridiculous amount of time in training mode. Its unlike any current gen 2D fighter out.

#71
Model_M said on January 8, 2013 at 8:55 p.m.

@70 I believe the demo for KOFXIII allows you to play online, I'm not %100 sure about that though. Try it out there if you're hesitant about the online experience.

#72
Linkk123 said on January 8, 2013 at 8:57 p.m.

Cross !

#73
Aluppoj said on January 8, 2013 at 8:58 p.m.

@74

For sure, and I'd probably buy it just for that. But without the opportunity to test that training down the road I'd kinda feel like I was waisting my time.

Game looks beautiful. Maybe I'll grab it just to stare at it lol.

#74
Ihateweeaboos said on January 8, 2013 at 9:02 p.m.

I dislike how you guys are talking about watching instead of going there and playing.

#75
SoWheresSagat said on January 8, 2013 at 9:02 p.m.

@Aluppoj #31

Don't be discouraged about online and I'm surprised that you didn't know about this, but you can always checkout the DreamCancel.com forums for matchmaking if you want to play with players with good connection.

oh that is NorCal's Hellpockets and his godlike commentating that you are asking about. =P

#76
Smorgasboard said on January 8, 2013 at 9:07 p.m.

Kofxiii is becoming more of a spectator game than umvc3. Where were everyone after Evo2012?

#77
ShinzoBishamon said on January 8, 2013 at 9:09 p.m.

@77 lol :P

#78
HooliganComboFTW said on January 8, 2013 at 9:20 p.m.

KOF and Persona? Yes

genocide_cutter said on January 8, 2013 at 9:21 p.m.

Nice list

Chunners said on January 8, 2013 at 9:26 p.m.

Does MVC3 really have a bigger following than AE?

#81
Aluppoj said on January 8, 2013 at 9:27 p.m.

@79

Thnx for the info! Hellpockets lol. That is amazing!

macklk said on January 8, 2013 at 9:28 p.m.

where is dive kick ????????????????????????????????????????

#83
Aluppoj said on January 8, 2013 at 9:28 p.m.

@84

In the United States. Not world wide.

AE is the international ambassador to our virtual sport:)

#84
sprflyspdrguy said on January 8, 2013 at 9:33 p.m.

Lol DOA community please don't let your game die. Inspector Chin works too hard.

#85
BunnyBoy said on January 8, 2013 at 9:34 p.m.

"Any games that got over 500 votes in their poll is allowed for the voting process."

This would mean that My Little Pony: Fighting is Magic is eligible to be selected... and Mr. Wizard is known to be an enthusiastic supporter of that game, too... xD

#86
sprflyspdrguy said on January 8, 2013 at 9:38 p.m.

Will the MK players complain about screens this year?

#87
Batsu said on January 8, 2013 at 9:44 p.m.

I'd take some days off to go to EVO if Vampire Savior was there, but alas, the event is just too lame as it stands for me to miss money.

#88
Deyrax said on January 8, 2013 at 9:47 p.m.

I hope PL wins EVO again and MK9 is thrown into an abyss for eternity.

#89
icejohn said on January 8, 2013 at 9:51 p.m.

@89
Dude that would be SOOOOO F'N great to see My Little Pony: Fighting is Magic on the big screen!

I'd would pay whatever, just to be in the crowd when that happens.
XD

Tony Cannon ‏@Pond3r
I am overjoyed to report that #MLP is currently leading the #evo2k BCRF Donation Drive. Good luck to everyone! #WSRK

It's going to happen.

#92
Meskiukas said on January 8, 2013 at 9:54 p.m.

Great lineup aside from trash ass MK. Time to practice SF4 UMVC3 and Tekken.

#93
king_e_dawg said on January 8, 2013 at 9:59 p.m.

It's not listed on the SRK page, but VF5FS has a donation page.

https://www.wepay.com/donations/evo20...

C'mon people, BELIEVE!

#94
TheCreator said on January 8, 2013 at 10 p.m.

@94 Who the hell donated half a million towards MLP? 0.o

#95
Otter_of_Death said on January 8, 2013 at 10:04 p.m.

For those who are saying MK's community is dead, you're out of touch with reality. MK9 got over 100 people at NEC. MK9 has consistently gotten better numbers than KOF and Persona.

#96
Eye_of_Orochi said on January 8, 2013 at 10:05 p.m.

They are setting up for a larger chance to have timeouts by excluding gems in SFxT. This will only lead to more bad publicity and people judging aspects of the game for the wrong reasons. Pleasing the uninformed...SIGH

If MK got a spot again, KOF better have gotten one too. Glad to see it show up. Loving the lineup, also hoping for CvS2 or Guilty to nab that last spot.

#97
LordProsper said on January 8, 2013 at 10:09 p.m.

@98 Hell if I know. All I know is that a pre alpha fan game being a main game at Evo is... really stupid.

#98
GenSoHotSpicy said on January 8, 2013 at 10:25 p.m.

All the MK hate is funny. MK has a large community which continues to grow internationally (check out testyourmight.com and read up on the MK kommunities developing in Angola and Ghana.) MK is also a very popular FG in Latin America and Eastern Europe. Its not dead. With all the new tech being discovered MK9 still has plenty of life left. Go to TYM and see for yourself. Im pumped for MK9 and SFxT. heres hopin for VF5FS.

#99
Echo01 said on January 8, 2013 at 10:29 p.m.

No Soul Calibur...well, I'm not really surprised but still disappointed. Also, hopefully Melee makes it in as player choice.
