“Vanilla was AWESOME!” by Desk and Error1 – World Premier at EVO 2011

By on July 14, 2011 at 11:18 am

Desk and Error1, the game-breaking master technicians, quickly gained notoriety for creating some of the most clever and exciting combo videos in recent memory. We’re excited to announce that EVO, Desk and Error1 are teaming up for the ultimate 3-hit combo – a world premier of his latest insane combo video “Vanilla was AWESOME!” only at EVO 2011. Check out the trailer below!

The concept takes us back in time to 2009, an era when Street Fighter IV was king. Desk and Error1 take the game into the lab, gets their hands on it and, how do I put this eloquently… they basically straight up rip it a new one. Expect to see some of the most clever game-breaking glitches, hilarious situations, and some of the most creative combos you’ll ever see.

Can’t make it to EVO this year? Be sure to stay tuned to our live stream provided by Team Spooky and iPlaywinner to catch the premier, or you can find it on Desk’s YouTube channel beginning in August.

Big shoutouts to Desk and Error1 for putting this together!

    It states the title for the combo video “Vanilla Was Awesome” but if you look at the shadowing behind the writing it says “Vanilla Was Broken”. Lol

    @ Hellfromabove:

    Good catch, haha

  • DukAmok

    I think I’d rather play Vanilla than AE.


    • The Lone Dragon

      Wow. People are NEVER satisfied with what they currently have.

      When Vanilla was out: “This game is broken”
      When Super is out: “I want AE”
      When AE is out: “I want Vanilla”

      Capcom could come out with the PERFECT game, and people will STILL complain and ask for a different game. I wonder when people will finally catch on to this pattern…

        “Capcom could come out with the PERFECT game,”

        No, they couldn’t.

        I don’t think there’s anything in your comment that isn’t a logical fallacy.

        • Ocedic

          His point stands. People on this site complain perpetually instead of actually playing and enjoying the games.

          • deisied

            Or, you know, they do both.

  • Nemo4ever

    “ultimate 3-hit combo”

    Damn this got me excited for an “Ode to the 3 hit Combo” video. Oh well, this looks fun.

  • ethan1341

  • MYK jamgi

    I like how in the shadows of “Vanilla was Awesome” it says “Vanilla was Broken”

  • cliffeside

  • Thillygewth

    Ken Wins!

  • Finkledoodoo

    i hate vanilla now just as much as i hated it two years ago, no thanks…

  • NickGuy0320

    vanilla was hype as hell. without patches and updates and left alone, it wouldve been interesting to see what it would have evolved into. we’ll never know now

    Godlike fingers and a brain that can perceive the world completely in binary code.

    And the Matrix.
