Think you're good at fighting games? If so, you should already have your bags packed and ready to go to the EVO 2008 World Finals. That's where all the really good Street Fighter and other fighting game heavyweights will be this weekend. So, if you think that you're really, really good (or just want to meet fighting enthusiasts like yourself), I suggest you head to the Tropicana Hotel & Resort in Las Vegas, August 8th to the 10th, and try out your luck.
Sadly, luck will not help you against these people. I've personally seen them play games competitively, and all I can say is that I will never be that good at anything, ever, at all.
The international competition that is EVO, also caters those who have a more relaxed approach, and always has machines on hand for non-competition play. Here's what Seth Killian, one of the events creators and Capcom community manager, has to say about EVO:
This year's EVO will have some special additions, such as Street Fighter IV, Super Street Fighter II Turbo: HD Remix (long title is long), and Tatsunoko Vs. Capcom up for anyone to play. I have it from a reliable source, that this may be the only time Tatsunoko Vs Capcom will ever see the light of day in the US. So if any of this is your bag of tea, I suggest that you get a move on!
