This year’s EVO – A gaming tournament dedicated to PVP Beat ‘em ups – took place this weekend at Caeser’s Palace in Las Vegas. A host of fighting games were played – but the one that generally captures the public hearts, as usual, is Street Fighter IV.

The competition was marred a little by the U-Stream broadcast going dead – meaning many people were unable to watch the results of the final match between EG Ricky Ortiz and last year’s winner  Daigo “ the Beast” Umehara. Who won? The results may surprise you.

[Update] Video has been replaced by a direct feed. Thanks Nick!

Ok no..they wont. Of course Daigo won…again. Daigo – playing as Ryu – bested Ortiz’ Rufus by a 3-1 in a nail-biting match-up. Coming in third, fourth and fifth were players Inflitration, Mike Ross and “Vangief”. Vangief is noteworthy for beating Daigo’s arch-rival Justin Wong – using a gamepad. Who says you need a stick for high level play, eh?

Here’s a direct feed of the final match-up between Daigo and Ortiz – and you can see why Daigo keeps winning. He’s just able to adapt to others’ style of play so quickly. High level play like this makes me feel a little dead inside – secure in the knowledge that I just plain suck.

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
