It's EVO 2016 weekend! Let's watch some fighting games


Street Fighter, Smash, Tekken, and more

Gosh, it’s already here. It’s EVO 2016 weekend!

The celebrated fighting game tournament began earlier today in Las Vegas, and I’ve been struggling all morning to tear myself away from watching Smash Bros. on the main stream. Let’s get right to it.

This year’s lineup is Street Fighter V, Super Smash Bros. (Wii U), Super Smash Bros. Melee, Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3, Guilty Gear Xrd -Revelator-, Mortal Kombat XL, Tekken 7: Fated Retribution, Killer Instinct, and Pokkén Tournament. Here’s how the streaming schedule will shake out:

(You can also find a game-specific breakdown right here.)

Stream links? I got ’em: srkevo1, srkevo2, srkevo3, srkevo4, and capcomfighters.

Even if you aren’t all that into playing these games whether it’s for lack of skill or interest or whatever, believe me, at an event like this, they’re frequently a treat to watch. If you’re pressed for time this weekend, try to at least catch the finals on Sunday. Street Fighter V is even going to air on ESPN2!
