For those of you wanted a reminder it’s that time of year once again! I am talking about the Evolution Championship Series (also known as Evo. It’s the world’s biggest and most prestigious fighting game tournament/event/festival where the world’s best fighting game players will be proving their skills and making their mark.

You can of course, find the official Stream Schedule down below.
As some of you might know, I really like watching fighting game tournaments. For me, it’s those moment’s of a final round of a match, where both players are down to 1 hit point each. Then, out of nowhere after exercising serious patience someone pulls out that clutch win. It’s moment’s where one player is down to no health at all and then pulls off an epic comeback and the crowd goes absolutely crazy. Needless to say, I am definitely hyped for Evo 2016. Of course the other reason is to actually learn from some of the best players by watching them play and learning from them.
I will be watching Street Fighter V and Tekken 7 Fated Retribution. I play Street Fighter V on PC. I am not the best gamer in the world but I love spending some of my spare time playing a few online matches, so I will be watching to see if I can learn some tips from some of the best players around.
Tekken 7 Fated Retribution is a game that has only been available in arcades in Japan for a little under two weeks. The base game (Tekken 7) has been available for over a year in Japan’s arcades. With that being said though I have to say that I find it a lot of fun to watch a Tekken 7 tournament.
