GameSpot Asia Beat Ep. 5: EVO 2012 Aftermath Salty Runback

We ramble on non-stop about the fighting game festivities that was EVO 2012 with a few representatives of the Singapore fighting game community.


Ultra Street Fighter IV

When it boils down to it, we Asians love to settle a lot of conflicts through fisticuffs of the digital kind. Preferably in scenarios where a quarter circle motion forward with a button input would result in a chi-concentrated fireball.

Last weekend's Evolution (EVO) 2012 tournament was a celebration of all things fighting game-related. For this week's Asian-only podcast, myself and SGCafe's Sim Cheng Kai dish out our thoughts about this year's international tournament alongside Singapore's top SoulCalibur V player Jovian "Shen Chan" Chan, community manager Yu Sheng "Farpenoodle" Tan and SoulSingapore community representative Samuel "Aheda" Ong.

That's a mouthful indeed; on with the show!
