The Daily Hotness: EVO 2013 begins


Check out everything Destuctoid did today

The Evolution fighting tournament of 2013 has officially kicked off today. I didn’t get to catch too much of the streams, but it warmed my heart to see a couple matches of Super Smash Bros. Melee before heading out. I think I just might dust off the ol’ GameCube before the weekend is up.

Today, Divekick has been dated and priced for PS3 and Vita, Gametrailers brings us a behind the scenes look at Double Helix and their upcoming Killer Instinct., EVO breaks its attendance record yet again, and God of War: Ascension‘s multiplayer gets some new blood in the form of five new maps.
