My Xbox One will be on for many, many hours this weekend, but the game it’ll be playing is the Twitch app—as I watch Evolution 2014. Yes, it’s time one again for the yearly fighting game tournament to end fighting game tournaments, filled with endless hours of Street Fighter IV, King of Fighters XIII, Marvel vs. Capcom 3, BlazBlue, Tekken Tag Tournament 2, Super Smash Bros., Injustice, and Killer Instinct competition. This, for me, is videogaming’s World Cup.
When not watching EVO 2K14, I’ll probably be playing Ultra Street Fighter IV, pretending like I’m actually good enough to be part of the tournament. And then, somewhere among all of that, I suppose I should make time to actually play the games I’m supposed to be playing for work.
