As much as I like to play as Phoenix, you were right, it was boring watching her play and it was annoying to see him win just by playing keep away. I felt that the other guy deserved it much more than him. He had a really strong Wolvie, Dante, and Tron. Also, that KO with Tron was beyond awesome. Don't get me wrong, the other dude played great (or he wouldn't be in the finals). It's just that Dark Phoenix's cheapness gave him the win, whereas the other guy played a way better all around set. But I think that once Ultimate hits the stores, we'll be seeing a lot less Phoenix players.
Wesker also seemed to be played a lot, and I'm not surprised. He has a ton of great combos and his gun attack can be really handy in picking the opponents back up. I'm also surprised at the people using Thor. Didn't expect that, although he is a fun character.
My favorite matches for AE were both from Daigo, funny enough. Alex Valle played a great Ryu and Poongko just destroyed him with Seth. It's like he was reading Daigo's every move and that perfect was just a nail in the coffin.
Here's the Daigo/Valle matchup in case anybody else didn't catch it:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K9dTq41pX2I
I also watched some Tekken and it was okay, but they did show a bit of Tekken Tag 2 and it looks pretty awesome. I'm thinking of getting back into Tekken by wither trying out Tekken X Street Fighter or Tekken Tag 2.
I guess I should watch a bit of the BlazBlue matches just to see how they play. Keep in mind that in all of these fighting games, I've only played Street Fighter IV and MvC 3, so I have little no idea how the rest play.
