Double Tap #136: EVO 2019

August 8th, 2019

Evo 2019 is now behind us but Crashtag and StaticGorilla are here to give you the dirty deets in Sin City. Tradition in every EVO besides the amazing matches and unbelieveable comebacks are the announcements. Almost every game in the line-up (besides Smash) has received some fresh coats of paint. Samurai Shodown finally gets some DLC gameplay shown in the next Season 2. MK11 just had it’s Kombat Kast but we’re gonna sit on this one for next week to get all our Nightwolf action on his August 13th release. Leaks all over the place from Capcom didn’t stop the hype of Poison, E.Honda, and new Metro City Enforcer, Lucia. StaticGorilla gives us the lowdown on his experience for EVO 2019 from the long lines, and making it out of pools and the finals.

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.
