Some major players were steamrolled, some new champions were crowned, and lots of salt was poured on the ever passionate EVO fans.

For the first time ever, I watched EVO day 3 stream from beginning to end and enjoyed watching every grand final. So much talent on display. It was amazing seeing how much the strategy around these established fighting games have changed since last year. But, above all, it was amazing watching it all unfold with you guys at home, so thanks for joining us in the chat.

Realized I've turned on my PS3 in the past month or two only to watch Mario cartoon DVDs. I really need to get around to playing something - anything - on it.

Listening to Studio Ghibli Collection at work https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J_WbO_LPXDo Reminds me that my dad really liked Howl's Moving Castle. He's retired military and serious most of the time but rather enjoyed its fanciful world.

MGS V review: When using a character other than Big Boss for missions, the intro credits still say, "starring Punished 'Venom' Snake." Sloppy work, Kojima - no wonder Konami dumped you. 0/10.
