You can tell the release of Super Smash Bros. is coming soon, because Nintendo's screenshot dumps seem to be getting more and more frequent. Still, they are welcome for those of us who like to pore over the photos to try to g...

EVO's best moments are often found off-screen

As someone who watches EVO but hasn't yet and will likely never attend the fighting game tournament in person, I adore Richard Li's videos -- they truly bring out the human element of the competition. It occasionally comes t...

Tekken 7 extended trailer is twice as overdramatic

I can't believe Liam Neeson has already made seven of these. There was a trailer for this recently, but this Comic-Con trailer is twice and long, therefore twice as good. You can say, "It's not about the length of the trailer, it's how you use it" all you like, but it's a half truth.  Also, please never say Heihachi again.

Marie's persona in Persona 4 Ultimax is so pretty

Beating on people with your handbag is less cool than beating on people with a folding chair, but it's still pretty cool. Also, throwing presents at them. Very sweet. Marie will be paid DLC for Persona 4 Ultimax. And can we talk about that music? So fun.

You got Tomodachi Life in my Smash Bros.

I'm glad Nintendo is paying so much attention to Tomodachi Life. Someone over at the Smash Bros. team really likes the quirky game as well, since it's going to make an appearance as a stage on 3DS. What's really crazy is...

Video: Dragon Ball Online fan remake happening, and Xenoverse still looks like a remake
by Bill Zoeker

A group of Dragon Ball Online fans, who happen to also be developers, are translating the game into English and re-releasing it as Dragon Ball Online: Revelations. Meanwhile, we've got more screenshots of Dragon Ball Xenoverse, a game which I still firmly believe to be an adaptation of Dragon Ball Online.

Sakurai talks Chrom, why he isn't playable in Smash Bros.

Yesterday we learned that Lucina will be a clone of Marth in the new Smash Bros., which is fine by me, but Chrom will not be making the final cut. Director Sakurai explains that he was initially considering adding Chrom,...

EVO 2014 recap: Here's who won
by Jordan Devore

And just like that, another EVO has come and gone. What a weekend.

Despite not playing fighting games much myself, I'll never miss watching the year's big tournament. The audience's energy, the drama that unfolds on stage -- it never ceases to amaze.

If you missed out on the grand finals for Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3, Super Smash Bros. Melee, Ultra Street Fighter IV, or any of the other featured games, look no further.

You're gonna want to watch that BlazBlue final.
