PersiaXO's insightful match analysis of Scamby vs Flux's ECT match will give you a new appreciation for Marvel, even if you don't play the game

The recent East Coast Throwdown in New Jersey saw some intense competition in Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3.

Of all the strong competitors, one player certainly stood out as he fought his way into top eight with his unorthodox team of Wesker, Nemesis and Chris. We're talking, of course, about KPB|Scamby.

In her analysis series, Marvel Minds, BT|PersiaXO breaks down notable Marvel matches with slow motion sequences and a universal language that makes it easy to understand what's going on. Here she looks at Samby's match against CTRL|Flux, giving a play by play recap of the intentions, reads and mistakes made by both players.

While, especially if you're not a Marvel player, it can seem like the game is a chaotic mesh of flashes and explosions, Persia's informed and clarifying commentary give the viewer an insight and appreciation that make watching her recaps a joy.

BrokenTier's Persia has been an avid Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 fan and extremely knowledgeable commentator for some time now. In order to spread the Mahvel word and increase the game's fan-base, she has started up an all new video series called Marvel Minds.

Kane BlueRiver's Hulk has smashes, HoneyBee's D'Vorah has... bees and Team EG has it out for each other in these Toryuken 4 highlights

Toronto's 4th Toryuken has officially ended, but we're reliving some of the more intense moment's from this weekend's tournament in our highlight recap. We've grabbed a few moments from Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3, Mortal Kombat X and, of course, Ultra Street Fighter 4.

UMVC3

Our first highlight comes from the Winners Finals match between EG|Justin Wong and BE|Kane BlueRiver. Match one, round one, right out of the gate KBR's Hulk sets the pace by smacking Justin's Akuma assist with a KO in the first 4 seconds of the round.

Unfortunately for KBR, he would later find himself having to play in the losers bracket against CTRL|RayRay. In a dire situation with only Haggar left to try to take on RayRay's Magneto-led team, KBR makes an amazing play. Surrounded by the chaos of assist missiles, drones, lasers and Magneto, Kane BlueRiver spots an opportune time to simply go for a level 3 super. Situation dealt with.
