EDGE - - KNOWLEDGE THIS MONTH - BlazBlue at Evo 2014

Cap­com’s games may still be the most pop­u­lar ones at the an­nual Evo cham­pi­onships, but the great­est match this year came in the fi­nals for BlazBlue:

ChronoPhan­tasma. Fight­ing games are of­ten crit­i­cised for be­ing im­pen­e­tra­ble to new­com­ers, but you don’t need a de­gree in foot­sies to fol­low as Litchi player Garireo pulls off come­back after come­back against Dogura’s Azrael. Com­ing from two-nil down in the sec­ond best-of­five set, Garireo de­lights an in­creas­ingly dis­be­liev­ing crowd and cast­ers, prompt­ing this fine pun­ditry: “This man is not hu­man! This man is a leg­end! This is the birth of a god!”
