Time overs, pop offs, shirtless games and something that drove PR Balrog to make this face... you don't want to miss these Marvel highlights from NCR

Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 just finished playing out at NorCal Regionals, and we've rounded up some of the best and most hype moments from the action packed top eight bracket.

This first highlight isn't so much for the gameplay as it is the player reaction. CYG|PR Balrog has a good time while he's playing, and he's perhaps never worn his feelings more clearly on his face than after taking this game from Circa|Jibrill:

Our next moment highlights the abilities of one of the absolute best to play the game right now: RyanLV.

Using Chun-Li, a rarely seen character at high level, Ryan uses an infinite combo to take a game off of Apologyman:

SoCal's Killer Kai was able to pull off a spotless win during his set with J2Jin:

We now visit the first game between EG|ChrisG and RyanLV, which ended in the following time out:

Fast forward to the final game in their set, and we see yet another time out, this time complimented with a pop off from Chris:

Calling upon the powers of partial nudity, Killer Kai earns his second highlight on our list for losing and taking his shirt off...

Apologyman would go on to defeat Kai, (despite his ascending to his shirtless form) and would move on to face RyanLV for a runback. Here are the final moments of their bout, complete with full pop off from the victor:

Amazing Mahvel play. Gotta remember Time is the best weapon against Phoenix. Great prelude to EVO.

He's smiling now, when he loses is all salt and "I don't even play this game, it sucks"

Except he always said he would play Marvel again if it suceeded to go on the Evo 2017 line up. So he is holding his words and so far I didn't see any tears.

You sure are an insecure person.
