Finally, the annual EVO Championship Series is here! Why I am so excited? Well let me explain without fully geeking out! EVO(Evolution) Championship Series is an annual fighting vidoegame tournament held in Las Vegas. Gamers from all over the world come ready with there fight sticks and controllers in hand, strategic fighting techniques, and a strong can do attitude to beat every competitor that stands (or sits) in their way! I have been a big fan of EVO since, 2011 and have not missed one since then. The games played at EVO are usually the latest fighting games that have come out. This year’s tournament will be comprise of Ultra Street Fighter iV, BlazBlue: ChronoPhantasma, Killer Instinct, Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3, Injustice: Gods Among Us, King of Fighters XIII, Super Smash Bros. Melee, Tekken Tag Tournament 2. These will be the games that these skilled players will be fighting each other in. Personally, I will be heavenly looking at Injustice: Gods Among Us mainly, this game was developed by NetherRealm Studios. NetherRealm Studios as most know created the deliciously fun and bloodied Mortal Kombat (9). So, I assuming most players who will be playing Injustice will have a Mortal Kombat background. Almost forgot there is suppose to be a Mortal Kombat reveal at the Injustice Grand Finals on Saturday so, make sure you do not miss that.
Did I mention this is suppose to be EVO’s biggest Street Fighter tournament ever!!! Nearly 2,000 competitors from around the world! You can read more about it here.
Cannot make to Las Vegas to see live (me neither), then do not fret because there will be a live stream of the tournament of there website. Also, for the first time IGN is getting in on the fun with their live stream as well here. Also, a twitch live stream here. EVO 2014 starts at 8amPST/11amEST. So, let the long killer combos, finishers, sweating palms and loud cheering commence. MWUHAHAHAHAHA!
