MLG Anaheim is just days away and The Loser's Bracket podcast has put together a full preview show to prepare you for the weekend festivities!
Listen in as Juicebox Abel, vVv Ruff, and vVv Fourth Oracle join our hosts to discuss the tournaments that will be taking place this weekend!
Topics and highlights this week include:
After the hosts have made their introductions for the week, Curt asks Jerry about a recent SC2 player pick up. What went wrong? Are players expecting too much?
The crew brings on Juicebox Abel to catch up and preview the MLG Anaheim fighting game events! A lot is about to happen in the FGC in a very short time. With
MLG, CEO, EVO, and more right around the corner, what should fighting game players expect? (Time: 00:09:00)
For those watching the fighting game tournaments this weekend, what should we look out for? Who will make a splash in KoFXIII? While a majority of players are
unseeded, could a new addition to the tournament from Mexico take the entire event? What players will be the top performers for Soul Calibur IV? (Time: 00:19:30)
Can vVv CDjr take a third MLG win in a row? Will CDjr stick to only playing Jax? What other MK9 could potentially take the crown from CD? (Time: 00:25:45)
King of Fighters hasn't had as many competitors sign up as the other two fighting games. Are people waiting to buy their passes at the door? What are the
complaints coming from the players? (Time: 00:36:30)
It's difficult to "herd cats." Why does Jerry think that we're getting the FGC all wrong? Why should we be listening to people that aren't a part of the scene?
This turns into an amazing scene about fighting games... a must listen! (Time: 00:43:00)
