Double Tap #135: Road to Evo 2019

July 26th, 2019

The road to EVO 2019 has started. Crash and StaticGorilla have a 1on1 on what rumors, leaks, and expectations from our favorite fighting games. SNK is listening closely with a quick QoL/QoS patch for Samurai Shodown. Kombat League Season 2 has begun and the leaks show when we’ll get our first try at Nightwolf DLC. GranBlue has some announcements close to EVO.

Street Fighter V has a lot to announce if it wants to get in the good graces of Crash while StaticGorilla goes onto the DLC needs of Dragonball FighterZ. EVO numbers, order, and brackets get broken down to see what games have managed to make waves in entrants and who is fighting who. Sony becomes a presenting sponsor for EVO. Does that mean we have a potential IP to look forward to or is there some support for some games we’ve been waiting on?

Video gaming runs in his blood and competition plagues his mind. From the earliest days in the now extinct arcades, to the eSports competitive scene, he looks forward to the next game to test his skills. No stranger to rising salt levels.

Got his start gaming with his two cousins and brother at his aunts house. They had to always play in secret, but he fell in love with fighting games when he got his first taste of an arcade in Maryland. Now looks to grow the community.

I've been playing video games for a while now. I enjoy racing games, RPGs, but spend most of my time with fighting games. My first goal was to get better than my brothers, but now I strive to be better than most while also teaching others.
