EVO Fighting Championship '09!
The Famous Paul went to the Rio in Las Vegas to watch some Street Fightin’!!
Ok, So this being my first Bloggy thing some pic’s are gonna be sideways, DEAL.
Here We go, EVO is the Evolution Fighting Championship. Tournaments are held all across the nation in all kinds of different fighting games to determine who’s kung fu no good here.
The finals are here in my backyard, VEGAS!
Here we see one of probably 40 setups all along the convention floor walls of dudes (it’s mostly dudes) playin’ fightin’ games!
These Dudes were playin’ Super Smash Brothers Brawl! On the Floor! Hardcore baby!
Most of those in attendance have modified their own fightin’ sticks.The one on the left is for the Wii. There’s like two fighting games on the Wii. HARDCORE!.
To be fair there is a really good reason to have a Wii Fightin’ stick.
TATSUNOKO V.S. CAPCOM- ULTIMATE ALL STARS!!!!
This game will be released in the U.S. finally after much wrangling. It will be Wii exclusive, at least for a while. It is really the spiritual successor to the Marvel v.s. Capcom series. It will be AWESOME!
More Wii Sticks And some shots of the game in action!
This is all the amazing swag that the Capcom folks were going to award the winner of their Tatsunoko fight off. I love Battle of the Planets aka GATCHAMAN!
I really wanted to steal this stuff.
Had I tried to steal the swag. These dudes would have stopped me.
I really wanted to steal their arm badges too.
Major cool points to you, lone gal at the EVO!
If you get the chance, go to EVO. Find out more about the fightin’ game fever at
