Senior Editor

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?

        Melee is what I watch regularly aside from Dota. Its a great game and tournies are regularly very exciting, with the exception of HBox ledge camping. :)

        Takes a bit to get used to watching though, but then again so does Dota. It isn't like Starcraft or Street Fighter or Quake which are great games that are also easy to observe.

        July 19, 2015 2:10 PM

        I played SF2 back in the day and always loved it. I kinda dropped off from fighting games after SF3 and MK4, but once I got asked to cover SoCal Regionals in 2013, it just got the spark going again. Kinda coincided with the continued growth of SF4 and the reinvigoration of Melee.

        • reply
          July 19, 2015 2:17 PM

          I loved MK4. It was my favorite of the classic MK games. It was still accessible, but the combo system was extensible enough to make each fighter feel somewhat different from the rest, and much more dynamic than MK3's.

      geez, I haven't played SF in forever, but when Adon was introduced in SF Zero 1 he was ridiculously overpowered because of how he could eat up space and get up next to an opponent in no time flat. He got super nerfed in SF Zero 2, but it kind of looks like this latest incarnation of him is back to being a little overpowered.

      I think Gamerbee has the invite to Capcom Cup even if he loses here. Even if he lost to Infiltration since both Infiltration, and Momochi already have their invites.

        Momochi's stick is having problems. Gamerbee knocked his health down to stop him from getting meter, and was going to let time run out.

              Yeah it's actually one of the craziest turn arounds I've ever seen for a company. They're the standard in arcade sticks now. Crazy to think they're associated with a quality product now compared to their controller pads from the late 90s / early 2000s.

      Someone on Reddit posted peak viewers for each finals:

      Smash Wii U (Saturday)
      97,145 viewers at peak

      Tekken 7 (Saturday)
      54,344 viewers at peak

      Killer Instinct (Saturday)
      66,187 viewers at peak

      Guilty Gear Xrd (Sunday)
      121,314 viewers at peak

      Mortal Kombat X (Sunday)
      188,350 viewers at peak

      Super Smash Bros Melee (Sunday)
      206,839 viewers at peak (+68,285 from 2014)

      Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 (Sunday)
      165,003 viewers at peak (+15,533 from 2014)

      Ultra Street Fighter IV (Sunday)
      228,776 viewers at peak (+98,102 from 2014)


      Views were generally way up from last year. USFIV and Melee both cleared 200k for the first time ever, and every other game surpassed numbers from other games in their respective time slots from last year.

      UMVC3 is the one semi-exception. It was the highest viewed game in prior years but it hardly grew at all for 2015, despite having a prime slot between SF4 and Melee. EVO's #4 game having 165k viewers is still huge though.
