At least the Double Tap team feels that way. Killer Instinct also comes to steam. Pokken Tournament DX aka 1.5/1.6 gets some new upgrades and gets a new home on the switch.

Traveling is apart of the job ,and as always the team strives to be at events and this time Mezza was able to head out to CEO Gaming to give you the 411 on how things went down!
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.
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.
