The lights are on
Do you like fighting games? Do you like seeing how much better other people are at fighting games than you? If so, you're about to have a really great weekend.
The Evolution Championship Series, a.k.a. Evo, is happening this weekend in Las Vegas. This popular yearly fighting game tournament is being broadcast through two livestreams on the Evo website, so even if you're not there to compete for yourself, you can watch these skilled players in action.
Games being played this year include Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition, Mortal Kombat, Marvel vs. Capcom 3, Tekken 6, and more. Upcoming fighting games such as Soulcalibur V and Street Fighter III: 3rd Strike Online Edition are also rumored to be on display at some point.
Any specific match-ups you're excited to see at this year's Evo? Personally, I'm hoping Ken fights Ryu and someone does a hadouken at some point. The livestreams are up now, so go check it out!

now i have something to do over the weekend
Chris Vs. Wesker
kitana vs chun li.
They still use Tekken 6? That's awesome.
gootecks vs mike ross. I love their show.
I was a bit bored...
I'm watching it.
This is great, usually i just watch starcraft matches for e-sports, but this will be cool to check into.
Great matches thus far - looking forward to watching the MvC3 finals tomorrow
i like dante.
BlazBlue and Tekken today...good didn't miss my favorites.
Kinda funny that the picture for article is from StreetFighterXTekken and not SSF4AE
Tekken was pretty intense. BOBS EVERYWHERE.
I'm looking forward to the finals today.
Wow, its like being in an arcade, watching guys go head to head, just minus the noise and standing. Sounds like fun to me.
GameInformer: I'm surprised with the huge scence that Street Fighter has that you don't have monthly articles on the events that are taking place across the country. I would love to see something like that in your magazine for not only fighting games but large competitive titles.
