PSA: Watch Evo Fighting Game Championships Live All Weekend

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!
